TripAdvisor broke out to new 52 week highs in October. Since then, the broader market has been rocky while TRIP has pulled back and consolidated. Check out the chart. The SCTR shows the stock outperforming its peers. The relative strength has pushed up and consolidated near the highs much like price. The full stochastic is a little problematic. Normally a full stochastic will accelerate into the top 80 % level. So far it has not done that and looks like it could potentially turn back down here. So with a stop nice and close, the rest of the chart looks stronger.
Price recently hit two year highs, and the PPO indicator is accelerating higher. With the strong chart shape, the stock looks well set up to go higher.

A funny story from this weekend. My daughter was at the library signing out books. She looked to see if the City Of Calgary library had ordered any of my books. Well, the good news was they had five in inventory, but they were all signed out and a waiting list! That's fun for me to hear!

The Canadian Technician video shows the bounce off the late October lows in Canada. Canada is back below the 2008 highs. Tough ten years for investors. What would help is some acceleration in metals and mining. This is a tough call here as the US Dollar moves higher but the momentum has been flat to down.
