Y - Breakaway gap today for new all-time highs followed strong earnings news for the Dec '13 quarter. Color code is changed to yellow with new pivot point cited based on its 12/19/13 high plus 10 cents. Considerable volume-driven gain has triggered a technical buy signal, however the broader market (M criteria) environment still argues for caution until at least one of the major averages produces a solid follow-through day of gains on higher volume.
