Company Description

Why We Like It:
Shares of the NYX were showing relative strength today. The stock had spent the previous five days consolidating sideways near its 200-dma. More importantly the NYX has spent almost seven months building what appears to be a significant bottom in the stock.

I am suggesting we open small bullish positions at the open tomorrow but only if both the NYX and the S&P 500 index open positive. If triggered we'll use a stop loss at $28.45. Our multi-week target is $34.75. FYI: The Point & Figure chart for NYX is bullish with a $41.00 target.

Do not enter position unless NYX and the S&P 500 are both positive at the open
