A sharp rally from the March lows drove the stock to more than $30 by May, where it topped and then began to form the bull channel that has marked its recent performance.

A new stochastic buy signal at the bottom of the bull channel could be a good place for both investors and traders to take positions. 

For traders, the target would be at around $38, but investors will probably want to hold JCP for the long term.
