The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the retail apparel company Citi Trends (Nasdaq: CTRN).   I found the stock by using Barchart's powerful screening tools to find the stocks with the highest Weighted Alpha and technical buy signals. After I sorted for the most frequent number of new highs in the last month, I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent prices appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 11/5 the stock gained 66.79%.
