How we found the Chart of the Day:
We found the "Chart of the Day" by scanning the Barchart "Signals - Top 100 Stocks" list. The Top 100 Stocks ranks stocks by a combination of their overall opinion, signal strength and signal direction to come up with a list of the top 100 stocks by opinion. Each analytic used within the signals is rated by signal strength and direction. The strengths are allocated 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 points; the directions are allocated 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 points. This gives a maximum of 55 points per signal. The totals are added up depending on buy, sell and hold rating and ranked 1 to 100 for the top 100 bullish stocks and the top 100 bearish stocks. The signal strength and signal direction ratings are available from the advanced opinion pages. Signal strength and signal direction are independent of the signals rating.
