An Island Top for Barclays


Barclays Plc (BCS) came across the island top scan from Tuesday's close. Notice how the stock gapped up, held the gap for one day with a doji and then gapped down with high volume on Tuesday. The doji represents an island where buyers are now trapped with a loss. In other words, Monday's buyers are in the red after Tuesday's gap down.
