    Congrats to @twerpner the Stockaholics Weekly Mystery Chart Winner for the Week of (4/9-4/13)!

    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 16th! 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.)

    I'm voting down. That doji on Friday combined with overbought territory I think portends a few down days.

    Well done @Three Eyes .

    I admit these guys are more or less unknown, but I have an eye on them for a good "turnaround story" if you will. I bought some beginning of this year only to see it crash (along with the rest of the market), and now I'm in the green on them. Hoping the bottom has already come and gone!

    I'm going to guess UP. It looks like it has been undergoing absorption over the past month or so.

    Oh man this is SNCR? I was stumped. What happened in July-September last year? The chart just flatlines like it was set to be acquired, but the sale fell through? I'm certain that's what it had to be, as there were also gaps before and after.

    You nailed it on the head @anotherdevilsadvocate. An all cash deal fell through for them and they had some accounting problems as well which lead to the deal getting pulled off the table IIRC.

    I tried to make this one a little harder as the last time I did a mystery chart I went with SQ and it was guessed in a matter of minutes..
