The Chart of the Day belongs to NiSource (NI).  I found the electric and natural gas utility stock by using Barchart to sort the 52 week high listfirst for the highest technical buy signals, then I used the FlipChart feature to review the charts.  Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 12/29 the stock gained 2.63%.

NiSource Inc. is one of the largest fully-regulated utility companies in the United States, serving approximately 3.5 million natural gas customers and 500,000 electric customers across seven states through its local Columbia Gas and NIPSCO brands.
