The Chart of the Day belongs to Galectin Therapeutics (GALT).  I found the pharmaceutical stock by using Barchart to sort today's 52 Week New High list first for the highest Weighted Alpha, then again for technical buy signals of 80% or more.  I then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation.  Since he Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 12/29 the stock gained 75.75%.
