lumber continues to trend down with the housing debacle and the slowing economy.

lumber turning.. driving through the neighborhood all the houses have 'sold' signs on. Not a picture for a devastating real estate crash.

why dont you simply worry about the price action of lumber rather than a real estate crash or boom - it is quite feesible that there could be a real estate boom and lumber could drop 90% from here - markets go where markets go !!

I could see a Long LBN7 swing trade here with a buystop @ 24760 and a sell-stop @ 24060. I am not in it though. The less risky trade is to wait for a spot to short it on a retrace.

I would take profits in the above trade at the close today. That is,... if I had taken it in the first place.

Cheers,
