June 3 Color GuardCanada’s main stock index and the VectorVest Composite Index (VVC/CA) closed higher today, driven by strength in consumer staples and discretionary; metals, financial and technology sectors.

Lots of major news events this week could affect CA and US markets. The Color Guard is only mildly bullish, and caution when buying stocks long is advised. OECD today forecasted slower economic growth for Canada and all eyes are on additional economic reports out of the US. And investors are waiting to see what happens in Greece with its Friday 300 million Euro debt repayment deadline.

Note:  Today’s video is longer than usual. Since our Strategy guidance tonight says Prudent Investors should get their shopping lists ready to buy stocks long on up days, I took extra time to review several graphs of our top VST stocks. I explain VectorVest guidance on price patterns and EPS growth using the VectorVest Simple graph layout. DISCLAIMER: None of the stocks in the video should be considered stock recommendations. The method shown however is one of the cherry picking techniques demonstrated by VectorVest in our Successful Investing Course Videos under the Training tab.
