|Includes:LyondellBasell Industries N.V. (LYB)

The Chart of the Day is LynodellBasell Industries (NYSE:LYB). I found the stock by sorting the All Time High list for new high frequency in the last month. I skipped over the stock that didn't have positive gains in the last week and month then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 2/7 the stock gained 8.15%.
