The Chart of the Day belongs to USA Truck (USAK).  I found the trucking stock by using Barchart to sort today's 52 Week New High list first by the highest Weighted Alpha, then by technical buy signals above 80%.  I then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation.  Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 11/1 the stock gained 48.09%.
