The ABC’s of Reading Stock Charts (XLF, XHB, XLE, XLK)

February 21st, 2012

“All advances are not created equal,” says legendary chart guru Louise Yamada. This is important to remember, even if obvious, during what has been the largely indiscriminate rally of 2012. From Tech, to Energy, to Banks; if a stock has remotely decent fundamentals and it isn’t overly defensive, it’s probably higher in 2012.  

It’s enough to lull investors into a cozy, complacent sense that their diversified portfolio is full of nothing but winners destined to shoot higher for the balance of the year or even longer. Which makes this a perfect time to start “culling the herd” by taking some short-term gains where appropriate.  

How can you separate the stocks likely to be rising with the bull market tide from those looking good for the longer term? Yamada gives us three basic patterns to look for to help decide if a particular name in this rally is a stock to stay long, take profits, or run and hide.  

Have you ever wondered how billionaires continue to get RICHER, while the rest of the world is struggling?

"I study billionaires for a living. To be more specific, I study how these investors generate such huge and consistent profits in the stock markets -- year-in and year-out."
