Charting The 4th Quarter


All this week on Fast Money, we've been inviting the Street's best technicians to chart their best trades. On Friday hear from the number 1 technical analyst on the Street from 2001-2004, Louise Yamada.

Yamada is also LYA Founder & Managing Director. Following are excerpts from what was said.

Chartology Week

What do you expect from the 4th Quarter?

Yamada shows an S&P chart and says if she was only looking at price action she’d think the S&P could go through it’s all-time high. But, she adds there hasn’t been good volume on this rally and the S&P can’t go up in a sustainable way without good volume. She concludes there may be some deterioration and suggests the market could go lower.

Guy Adami agrees with her analysis.

Yamada on Cisco

Yamada takes an in-depth look at a Cisco chart which spans more than 10 years. This chart suggests to her that Cisco (CSCO) is moving much higher and she thinks it’s a “pounding” buy.

Yamada on Centex

Yamada says her Centex (CTX) chart suggest the stock could drop to $10 and she recommends selling. Yamada adds bottom fishing can de dangerous to one’s wealth.
