The Barchart Chart of the Day belongs to the medical products company NanoString Technologies (NSTG). I found the stock by sorting Barchart's New All Time High list first by the highest Weighted Alpha, then used the Flipchart function to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy in 1/8 the stock gained 41.41%.
