    Why would these professional investors still be holding this 'how not to' of a business model?
    And on the other hand, unless you think the outfit is going out of business, why sell now?
    I know this stock has dissapointed brokers and punters alike, over the years. A decade ago I actually took a good profit out of this outfit. Hindsight tells me it was sheer luck.

    Default THL Chart

    You can make TA as complicated as you like but it is hard to see the need for complexity in cases like this. THL was in an uptrend for years. The uptrend ended and now THL has been in a downtrend for years. The On Balance Volume indicator provided excellent early warning of the reversal and has not given even a hint of a "Buy" signal since. What more could you ask?

    Hi Fwu005, I use MetaStock software to create my charts, but there are plenty of other equally good programs such as SuperCharts, Insight Trader, Ezy Chart Pro etc.

    There are now such good charting facilities available free on the net, that it
    is no longer necessary to buy your own software in order to use TA effectively. Incrediblecharts would be one of the better on-line alternatives.

    Thumbs down

    I refer to part of the article already posted about CI Munro in May 2009:

    Quote:
    Workers at Hamilton-based Caravans International Munro may find out next week if a further 67 jobs are to go, two months after the company's last round of redundancies.

    CI Munro, which builds and rents out motorhomes and caravans, is a division of Tourism Holdings Ltd, and reported a loss of $3.2 million in the six months to December 31.

    The company told workers on Tuesday of its planned 67 redundancies, and expected to finish consulting with staff and the union by next Tuesday.

    Tourism Holdings chief financial officer Ian Lewington told NZPA there had been no intention to make further cuts after 20 positions were culled in February.

    The company had managed to retain about 12 others at that time by moving them to the growing fabrication business.

    "Since then the outlook for tourism has deteriorated and the uncertainty in the world economy has meant the outlook for the build requirements in terms of caravans and motorhomes is lower than expected," Mr Lewington said.

    If the full 67 go, the company will have almost halved in size from the beginning of the year when it employed more than 170 staff "

    Part of the sad story of this proud regional business upping sticks and moving to Hamilton, is that it may have dropped some of its support base of skilled workers, and also happened to move at just the wrong time. Senior management should be looking hard at themselves over this mistake.

    Phaedrus - am new to TA and this forum. Incrediblecharts does not appear to support nz stocks...do you have any other recommendations for free charting the NZX?

    With thanks.

    IncredibleCharts is able to import NZ data from free sources such as Yahoo. There have been quite a few posts here explaining how to do this, most of them in the thread entitled "Incredible sharts NZ shares?"
    You probably did a search for charts and therefore missed this one!!!!

    This is from the Incredible chart thread. The other thing to note is data is a couple of days old.

    You can do it Forrest but I dont think you can load the whole exchange at one time

    Here is the path
    Open Incedible Charts
    At top left of screen
    click on Securities
    scroll down to
    LOAD SYMBOL FROM YAHOO
    enter code and load exchange in lower part of window

    Thats right chippy, it takes a bit of time loading up the NZ shares, but its very doable, because the NZ exchanges is small and there are plenty of NZ companies you probably want to leave out for one or another reason.

    The other limitation is that stock screen doesn't seem to work on the NZ shares.
