Near & Long-term Outlook for GD & GS

Member @everbank7 asked for my thoughts on GD (General Dynamics Corp) and GS (Goldman Sachs Group Inc). While these two stocks are in completely different industries, they do share some similarities regarding their technical postures; near-term bullish & long-term bearish. I decided to share my reply here on the front page for all to see for a couple of reasons. First, both of these trades might offer a swing trade on the long side in the coming weeks to months as well as a potential shorting opportunity, if/as any counter-trend rally runs it course & the charts confirm a short entry [...]
