BSM peaked just before the market correction at the end of February, and it drove the price even lower, back near the 50-day moving average and inside an upward price channel. It has recovered from that setback and is poised once again to break out above the channel.

  • Price momentum (PPO) — very sharp increase in early February
  • Trend (ADX) — strengthened greatly in early February
  • Money flow (CMF) — slight outflow, improving
  • Relative strength (RSI) — was very strong, back at neutral after the correction
  • Volume — increased steadily throughout February

Based on technical analysis, MarketEdge calls BSM a "strong buy" in a "strong upward trend."


gain Bottom line

I decided to close my position in BSM today to lock in modest gains. The chart still looks pretty strong to me, but with the markets having such violent mood-swings, I wanted to make sure the gains weren't frittered away.
