In the video we look at a few top performing searches and stocks, and we show you how you can set up Candlestick searches in UniSearch to help identify potential market reversals in our major indexes including the TSX Composite, the Venture and VectorVest Composite/CA.

The TSX managed a 63 point gain. The VectorVest Composite (VVC/CA) rose 0.34% over yesterday, and it also closed higher than 5 days ago. That gives us a green light in the price column for those who adhere to the Green Light Buyer timing system. U.S. markets closed higher after upbeat labour data. Technology stocks led the rebound from yesterday’s steep losses.
