$CTRN +13% through this morning, becomes the first of the MDA breakout picks to break 10% through Thursday despite continuing negative Momentum Gauges® and poor conditions for the small cap stocks. The streak of weekly picks gaining over 10% in less than a week of trading days continues to 171 out of 204 trading weeks (83.8%) not counting multiple gainers. The large/mega cap index S&P 500 Momentum Gauges® remains highly positive as investors look for less volatility.
