Charts of the Week: Yamana Gold, Cooper Tire

By Roberto Pedone

WINDERMERE, Fla. ( Stockpickr) -- Technical analysis is a great tool that investors and traders can use to try to even the playing field on Wall Street. Instead of blindly throwing money at a stock, market players can consult the charts and try to determine things such as prevailing trends, where support and resistance are and what levels on a stock mark a good entry or exit point. They can also analyze trading volume to see if the big money is moving into a stock or moving out.

All investors hope to end up on the right side of the trend, and using technical analysis to stalk the charts like a forensic scientist can help them remove emotional bias and make informed decisions. For instance, noticing that a stock is trending down might help an investor avoid an investment based on his or her love of the company's product.

By no means should we ignore the fundementals, but at the end of the day, the objective is to make money. Technical anlaysis can help us make money on the long or short side by discovering the best chart patterns that give us the highest probability of success.

Here's a look at some compelling charts that are piquing the interest of the Stockpickr community. If you're interested in having a chart analyzed for a future article, please visit this forum and post your tickers.
