Favourable technical and seasonal comments for a seasonal trade were offered on Royal Bank (RY $102.64) on January 18th at $98.64. Yesterday, the stock moved below its 20 day moving average, began to underperform the S&P 500/TSX Composite and recorded downtrends by daily momentum indicators. Accordingly, the stock no longer is favoured as a seasonal trade.

Ditto for Canadian Financial iShares (XFN $37.56) mentioned favourably on January 16th at $35.63. Note the drop in technical score recorded yesterday by the TSX Financial Services Index and related ETFs to -4.
