Trade Ideas: HYSL

On paper at least, it doesn't look like markets have made much of a change on yesterday. But the Trade Ideas scan was showing a noticeable slowing in the buying; the 8 pick list would have covered a time span of 8 minutes. Also slowed down was the number of appearances stocks made on the scan; top of the pile, Hyperion Solutions, (HYSL) only managed 20 appearances over the course of the day.

Because of a tick error in the candlechart for HYSL I have opted instead for a line chart. There is a clear upward channel (and smaller handle) which can be traded based on the closing price (ignore intraday swings). Buy break of $35.70, sell loss of $34.70.
