Shares didn't breakout on major , but sellers didn't step in and drive down shares, so low isn't necessarily a problem, but I will still keep an eye on it if we see heavy on the downside. Now that we have seen December and January have a much higher low than was seen in 2001 and 2005, the chart is telling me that we have signs of much stronger buyers this time around.
I highlighted the monthly "highest low" as support as well as the dual "Highest Monthly High" as another important level for $SKYW to hold on pullbacks.
Looking at the way $SKYW tends to rally once it gets going, you can imagine that we could be set for the same thing again this time around, even though prices are up substantially from the lows seen in 2014.
One observation you will see here is that I drew a curve that only touches the lowest monthly highs (see the 3 brown touch-points on the curved line. I prefer this method for seeing the real story behind the accumulation in any market. (Look for "highest lows" to understand buyer strength, and look for "lowest highs" to understand seller strength).
Next I will dig into fundamentals of $SKYW valuation relative to my other favorites: $LUV, $DAL, $JBLU and $CPA.
