At its core, technical analysis is the study of the market itself, rather than the goods that trade in the market, in determining the investment-worthiness of a security. While fundamental analysts worry about a company's business attributes, technicians are primarily concerned with price and volume and with the supply and demand attributes that impact shares.

Helene Meisler's charts can help you make money in any market -- because success in technical analysis is independent of market conditions. It's about using charts to find opportunities as stocks move up or down. In other words, you don't need stocks to go up to succeed. In Top Stocks, Helene puts her 20+ years of experience in technical analysis to work for you. Using her rigorous, forward-looking stock screening methodology, she assesses at least 200 stocks a day and emails you only the ones that make the final cut as her "top picks." Whether you are a sophisticated trader, or a novice wondering what technical analysis is all about, you can take advantage of Helene's time-proven approach and her action-oriented analysis of technical indicators pertaining to market trends and market sentiments.

Scott Redler, Chief Strategic Officer of is joined by Brittany Umar for the Morning Call. The S&P and Nasdaq got the oversold bounce we have been looking for to end a four-day losing streak, but the Dow slumped to a small loss thanks in part to a big positive to negative reversal from Home Depot (HD). Coming into this morning the market had only been at the same oversold levels once in 2013, and S&P futures were able to shrug off some weakness in world markets to post today's gains.
