Sometimes the best trades are the ones you choose to pass on! Many traders fall into the trap and overtrade during the summer doldrums when volume is reduced and pattern failure is rampant. Lehman Brothers (NYSE: LEH) is a classic example of a stock in stasis. Without sponsorship or trend, this stock is in transition. It may offer great profit potential in the future, but for now, I would avoid any exposure.
