The streaming leader does not require a subscription. You can sign up for a month, watch a whole bunch of shows, and then leave. The company’s steady subscriber growth suggests that’s not happening in any major numbers, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it work for you.

Whether you need to be a steady 12-months-a-year subscriber to Netflix depends on your viewing habits and those of others in your household.

In my house, my wife and I have a handful of shows we watch together that air on “normal” network schedules of one episode per week. From October through May, we’re generally watching selections from our DVR, and we rarely turn to Netflix.

At other times of the year, we will watch an episode or two of a streaming show each night. Sometimes that’s a show that airs on Hulu or Amazon Prime. If that’s the case, we may rarely turn to Netflix.

Ideally, if we managed our TV watching better, we could probably drop Netflix five or six months a year. We don’t because our wireless phone plan comes with Netflix included, but if that wasn’t the case, we would not have to make major changes to our viewing habits to drop the streaming leader for parts of the year.

A big white candle occurred. This is generally considered bullish, as prices closed significantly higher than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “low,” it may be the first sign of a bottom. If it occurs when prices are rebounding off of a support area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or retracement level), the long white candle adds credibility to the support. Similarly, if the candle appears during a breakout above a resistance area, the long white candle adds credibility to the breakout.
