Thursday, August 21, 2008


This broke out to a new high from an old high going all the wasy back to November. It's been in a nice uptrend lately while the rest of the energy sector is getting smashed. Relative strength got to a new high well before price, but CMF peaked back in July and has been declining. This is one of the few oil exploration companies that loses money, so I would be really careful here.

Hi Thierry,

Thanks for the nice comments. Relative strength is the term William O'Neil uses, but stockcharts uses the term "price relative", which is probably a better term and also prevents confusion with "relative strength index" (RSI), which is a completely different measurement. To get the price relative on stockcharts, go to the overlays and change it to "price" then enter "fxen:$spx" to compare it to the SP500. Don't forget the colon.
Hope the storm hasn't done too much damage their. I have been through hurricanes when I lived on the east coast, so I know what they are like.
