Transports Confirm New Uptrend, Now What….Buy’em

In case you were sleeping today let me remind you that the reaction to the FOMC statement and press conference was a face ripping rally across the board. One significant result of this was that both the Dow Jones Industrials ($DJIA, $DIA) and the Dow Transports ($DJT, $IYT) made new all time highs. This confirms the bull market from one of the oldest standing technical views, Dow Theory. So what do you do about it? Well with the transports previously lagging and now moving, why not look to them? Planes, trains, and auto…I mean trucks.
Alaska Air, $ALK, is the best looking plane chart in the index. The chart below shows it approaching a trigger at point B of the bearish Butterfly at 63.60. The Potential Reversal Zone on the Butterfly is all the way up at 72.65 and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) and Moving Average Convergence Divergence indicator (MACD) both support it moving higher.
Norfolk Southern, $NSC, is a good place to start. The chart below shows that it has confirmed a bearish Butterfly Harmonic but with a PRZ much higher at 83. With a move over the B point at 78.20 as a buy trigger it has a lot of room higher with previous price history giving potential resistance at 80.30. The momentum indicators, RSI and MACD both support more upside as well.
CH Robinson Worldwide, $CHRW, is a trucker on the edge of a break out. The chart below shows a third touch at the resistance level at 62 with a gap to fill above it to 65.51. The RSI and MACD are supportive of a break higher as well on this name. Use the break above 62 as a trigger.
