I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also publish LiquidityTrader.com, and was lead analyst for Sure Money Investor. I developed David Stockman's Contra Corner for Mr. Stockman. I’ve had a wide variety of finance related jobs since 1972, including a stint on Wall Street in both analytical and sales capacities. Prior to starting the Wall Street Examiner I worked as a commercial real estate appraiser in Florida for 15 years. I also worked in the residential mortgage and real estate businesses in parts of the 1970s and 80s. I have been charting stocks and markets and doing analytical work since I was a teenager. My perspective is not of the Ivory Tower. It is from having my boots on the ground and in the trenches of the industries that I analyze and write about today.

Trade The Range – Here’s How

The market held at support and immediately rebounded to the top of the trading range and a bit more last week. But trend resistance lines around 3350 were not violated. A failure to penetrate that area would leave the market vulnerable to a decline back to the bottom of the range around 3215.

I have suggested a trade that would profit hugely from that scenario, if it plays out, of course.
