The Beauty of a Range-Bound Stock Market

A sideways, or range-bound, market represents an equilibrium between buyers and sellers.  I wrote a piece over at recently about the S&P 500 settling into a price range between its 50-day moving average (a common short-term trend indicator) and its 200-day moving average (a good long-term trend indicator).

Charts can provide a clear way to navigate this sort of range-bound market, helping you understand when buyers or sellers take control and push the market to new highs or lows.
