The Closing Print live trading and financial blog during market hours. International (CTRP) is a stock which appealed to us this week after appearing on our scanner which looks for bullish momentum stocks and follow-through day candidates. When the indices and stock markets are bullish these candidates have a higher probability of continuing along the current path.

Reference the Thursday morning post here for a complete list of stocks fitting these bullish criteria.

NSC Follow-Through Day

Norfolk Southern (NSC) was on the Thursday morning scan results as well. This stock never looked back. We anticipate this continuation pattern will achieve fresh 52-week highs in the days ahead.

Volume, RSI and MACD suggest higher prices for NSC.

Futures are pointing to a bullish opening range, as the 10year yield retakes the 3-month in early trading.

Wait for confirmation before adding to these positions or starting new candidates. Fry-days are not the best days for initiation, as many traders will exit the markets for the weekend.
