Time for the Stock Pickers

As expected, 1700 is becoming a speed bump. And don't let the modest decline of the Dow or S&P Wednesday fool you. Beyond the blue chip names, small and mid-cap indices declined nearly -1% on the day.

The funny thing is that the economic news was very good. Not only is manufacturing perking up in the States, but also in Europe. Granted China's numbers continue to slip, but that just speeds up the time table for their previously promised stimulus programs.

Expect at least a week or two of consolidation around 1700. Today's biggest winner could become tomorrow's biggest loser (and visa versa).

This becomes a golden time for stock pickers to flourish. And one of the best in the world wants to share his time-tested strategies with you. Learn more in this new article:
