Chart:S&P 500

Analysis: Immediately after the Fed announcement on Wednesday I expect a 'sell on the news' dip, says Fitzpatrick. It looks like a 25 basis point rate cut is priced in, technically.

Analysis: The chart action suggests to me that Google is a buy at current levels, says Fitzpatrick. I think GOOG could go to $630.

Chart:Research in Motion

Analysis: Trends in this chart suggest to me that RIMM is a buy, says Fitzpatrick.

Traders what do you think of the analysis?

The S&P chart looks troubling to me, says Tim Seymour. I also expect it to give back after the Fed decision.

I like Google, exclaims Jeff Macke.
