Friday (12/15) - Tom's Workshop on "Price Support and Resistance"

Wednesday (12/20) - Greg Schell's "Point & Figure Review"


What Happened Today?

Under the Radar: (00:10) In this new segment, Tom and Erin look for stocks that have high volume for the day that is above their average daily volume. Many market makers are likely scrutinizing these stocks, so we share the ones that look particularly interesting!


Momentum Sleepers: Tom and Erin have slightly different definitions for "momentum sleepers". Tom picks charts that have been in downtrend (sleeping), but are beginning to turn around. Erin picks charts where the PMO is turning up after a long negative drive lower; she looks for oversold PMOs.


Ten in Ten Before One: (00:50) In this regular segment, Tom attempts to review ten charts in ten minutes. Send in your symbol requests via Twitter (@mktwatcherslive) before the show or using the live chat box during the LIVE program and we'll try and add them. We'll also check our email for symbol requests before the show ( You'll find all of the charts in the MarketWatchers LIVE ChartList, located at the top of the MarketWatchers blog homepage.


Anatomy of a Trade: (1:08) In this regular segment, Tom and Erin pick stocks that either have traded or would consider trading. They break down everything on the chart including not only indicators, but also levels for stops and targets.


Mailbag Segment: (1:22) Each show Erin and Tom answer questions received via the live chat room or they pick questions that have previously been asked via email.  


Looking Forward:

Tune in on Friday at 12:00p - 1:30p EST on 12/15 for a review of sentiment polls and numbers and to see Tom's workshop on "Price Support and Resistance".
