BALTIMORE (Stockpickr) -- The market was predictably calm in yesterday's trading, a sign that the market is waiting in anticipation of more "headline worthy" economic news today and tomorrow. That said, things aren't completely silent for market participants right now. With bearish pressure weighing on banking stocks, it's clear that investors are willing to sell now and ask questions later with respect to the financials (more on that in a few).
While bets against such a broad sector ultimately left major indices down for the day yesterday, there's a lot more to the market than meets the eye right now, with interesting technicals setting up in some of Wall Street's biggest stocks.

And according to some sources, skilled technical traders can bank gains as much as 90% of the time.Wondering how some of Wall Street's biggest names are shaping up right now?
