5 Big Stocks to Trade for Gains

BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- How long is this rally really going to last? With stocks at four-year highs right now, investors are starting to look for the black clouds.

At this point, though, stocks are still majorly in favor, so to take full advantage, we're turning to the technicals in five of Wall Street's big-name stocks this week.

Technicals are a study of the market itself.

Technical charts are used every day by proprietary trading floors, Wall Street's biggest financial firms, and individual investors to get an edge on the market. And research shows that skilled technical traders can bank gains as much as 90% of the time.
