Play It Safe: A Defensive Trading Strategy for 2021

2020’s chaos is spilling over into 2021 and we’re playing a wait-and-see game with a lot of factors. A big concern is that we’ll finally see the market correction we’ve been talking about for so long, which means it’s important to have a defensive trading strategy.

Obviously, the 800-pound gorilla in the room is politics, but we’re going in a different direction today. With earnings season here, the name of the game is the same as it was in 2020 — volatility.

Is that a safe place to store your wealth?

Now, after sitting down with trading experts Roger Scott, James West, Adam Sarhan and Jeff Yastine, we all seem to be bullish on cryptos.
