The Chart of the Day belongs to the scientific and technical instrument company Vontier (VNT). I found the stock by using Barchart's powerful screening functions to find stocks with the highest technical buy signals, highest Weighted Alpha, superior current momentum, and having a Trend Seeker buy signal then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation.  Since the Trend Seeker signaled a buy on 3/29 the stock gained 14.31%.
