As a short term swing trader, the bloodbath we have experienced in the equities markets over the last couple of weeks has obliterated practically all of the setups I favor. For the most part, my watch lists are now littered with broken charts that will need a long time to repair themselves. However, for position traders that look for stocks at sharp discounts, now is the time to begin bargain shopping. While I personally don’t take many position trades, I do look at the weekly charts during times like these and see if I can find some charts that are approaching long term support. Basically, I look for a strong battleground the stock is approaching, and wait for Gandalf to hold off the bears and shout:
Below are some of the charts I have found that are near Gandalf levels.
