    Weekly Mystery Chart & Technical Analysis Challenge (4/9-4/13)
    (Read this first post for the new Stockaholics Weekly Mystery Chart Challenge)

    Congrats to @Three Eyes the Stockaholics Weekly Mystery Chart Winner for the Week of (4/2-4/6)!

    *Link to Previous Weekly Mystery Chart Thread*

    Weekly Mystery Chart Chart & Technical Analysis Challenge Rules:

    1.) I will post a chart stripped of its price and indicators.

    2.) Members are encouraged to guess the mystery chart for the week. The first contestant to correctly identify the mystery chart will receive 10 points in the members leaderboard. You cannot duplicate someone's mystery chart guess. Only the first person to correctly identify the mystery chart wins the 10 points. The mystery chart ticker and winner of the 10 points will be revealed sometime on Monday after the market opens.

    3.) Members will also need to vote on the direction of the mystery chart for the week (meaning Friday's close), you will have up until the 9:30am eastern market open on the first trading day of the week. There will be a new poll up for each new week. Members who correctly predict the direction of the mystery stock (Up or Down) will receive 5 points in the members leaderboard for the week.

    4.) Members who also provide some rationale for their direction vote (this can be brief) will be awarded another 2 points in the members leaderboard.

    5.) All members who "participate" will receive 1 point for the week.

    6.) The member who correctly guesses the mystery chart for the week will also get exclusive rights to pick out the next mystery chart for following week's challenge as well as a couple of hints of your choice (you would need to PM me your ticker so that I can have it posted for next week's pick! You would have until Friday of that week to send it in).

    7.) We will only be using 1-year daily charts for all mystery charts, unless otherwise stated.

    8.) Stocks that have earnings or ex-div dates in the coming week are not permitted as mystery charts for the competitions.

    9.) In the case of a no-winners week where not one member was able to correctly identify the mystery chart for the week, the previous week's winner (chart picker) will once again have the rights to pick out the mystery chart for the following week.

    10.) These are just some rules to get us started for now. If you guys see anything that we need to add or tweak here please do let us know!

    Remember...the direction poll closes at the opening bell on Monday, April 9th! So try to get those votes in ASAP!

    So, w/o getting into further ado here is your mystery chart for this week!

    (Chart to be posted here after market close on Friday.)

    And here's the first clue. I'm off line until early tomorrow morning, and will post more clues (if needed) on Saturday. Good luck everybody!

    Clue one - If you live in the continental US, you've likely seen this S&P 500 component firm (established in the 1960s) hard at work.

    Clue 2a is huge especially combined with 2b. Seems everyone is away for the weekend. I've driven by their headquarters more than several times, so that's a bit unfair, and I won the time before last. Maybe someone will get it today.

    And beyond solving for "x", clue 2a has its own "Easter Egg" embedded in the equation. Anybody wanna figure that one out? :confused: Ha ha!

    My first guess was CAT on this, and for some reason I couldn't get myself to look at any other stocks, but when you posted the logo without the name it clicked for me.

    It is JB Hunt (JBHT). Although to be fair to my original guess both charts are very similar as of late and in industries that you could tie together as well.

    I think it will go up now that it has reached the last point where the current leg up began. A bounce right around 109 is due and ties in with some previous support and resistance.

    Good pick for this week!

    Clue 2(a) answer was "18" and 2(b) was obviously a truck tire or wheel, so "18 wheeler." The extra (really esoteric) clue in 2(a) was that the right side of the equation ("61") was the year in the 1960s (see Clue 1) that JB Hunt was established.

    Clue 4 (not needed) was "This NASDAQ 100 company is also a Dow Jones Transport component."

    :cool: Clever, but not nearly as clever as the director, Earl Wayne Garrison. Check it out, he has sold $23,647,502 of his stock over a 5-month period between the end of August and January. I wonder how many miles he has logged? Just that amount likely represents about 400 years salary of the average JBHT employee. I'm sure his contribution at the board meetings is well worth it. o_O Maybe he actually bought the shares, I dunno. Check it out though, the Chairman of the board actually bought $5,000 of stock.

    I'm going to guess this has some work to do at lower prices, around $103...so I'll guess DOWN for next week despite the upcoming ER on Fryday.

    I think it'll bounce off or near the 200 DMA. So down to start, but ultimately finish the week UP.

    Currently on the lower Bollinger band, I think it'll rise off it slightly and stay off for this week. Voting slightly up.
