What Works Now

New Vista Energy on the TSX exchange...

What I Think

Bull rages on. Except for a starting rotation in the aggressive defensive chart all looks very strong. At best you might talk about overbought, but that can go on a long time. 

Canada is looking stronger even as the emerging markets corrected ever so slightly this week. Wednesday oil surge 6% as the bottom looks to be in for now.
