Richard Gobel, owner and operator of Strategic Stock Trade, has more than 30 years of experience in the investment business.

 

Over the past few years, he has been using technical analysis and algorithms to develop day-to-day trading strategies to make financial decisions.

 

One of the keys to his success has been seeking out extreme conditions in the action of stocks. Using those extreme set-ups has guided him in initiating long and short positions based on trading algorithms to track extreme set-ups. When a stock is at its most extreme overbought condition, it will be flashing between 99-100 on his Extreme Set-Up scale. And when it is at its most oversold condition, the stock will be flashing between 1-0.
