Earlier this wek, the Steady Trader’s Head of Investment Strategy, Serge Berger, posted a video explaining why he recently bought shares of Bank of America Corp (NYSE: BAC).

The banks as a group –- see the KBW Bank Index (NASDAQ: BKX) in blue -- “have shown relative strength all year versus the broader stock market [and] continue to be supported by a slowly rising interest rate environment,” he said.

Bank of America, in particular, “has shown good relative and absolute strength within this strong group and looks poised to rally more in coming weeks.”

As seen in the weekly chart above, the stock has been stuck in a range over the past year and a half or so. Although the shares are now somewhere near the upper end of this range, Berger sees room for growth.

Now, looking at Bank of America in relative terms, compared with the KBW Bank Index (in black, this time), the stock is also outperforming its peers, which are, on average, performing strongly as well.

Finally, looking at the daily chart, the stock looks supported and, according to Berger, it might be able to move towards the $17.50-$18 area.

Shares of Bank of America rose nearly about 2.4 percent on Friday, closing at $17.18.
