ok guys i guess this is a short term thread but i was wondering how would one go about playing this rate cut whether its 25 or 50 bps. i guess i'm leaning towards 50 if it goes thorugh which stocks to play, do you pick up the financials or do you go to nasdaq and buy the classic brcm,jnpr chkp, etc.. which if the mkts run they'll give several points. i guess i am kind of looking at a scenario that if mkts rally i want to be in somoething that will move a few points, and also if mkts stay flat or sell off a bit i am holding a stock that has a decent chart pattern that would sugest a buy. I guess this would be a swing trade that if it turnsout that i can get few points in one day, i'll take it. So i will be lookign for a chart pattern taht one might consider going long even without the 50 cut. any thoughts ideas suggestions which stocks to look at? greatly appreciated any strategies.
