Why ‘Short-Term’ Is the Best Strategy for This Market

If you caught Crush the Open on Monday, we hit on all of the big market-moving events happening this week, including the bearish news coming out of China that’s been weighing on stocks. 

Protests are happening against Beijing’s zero-COVID-19 policy, with people getting sick and tired of being locked down in their homes all the time. 

We also had more bearish comments out of the Federal Reserve this week, with St. Louis Fed President James Bullard saying Monday they might need to keep the benchmark interest rate in the 5% to 7% range into 2024 to tame inflation. 

These are just two of the bigger news bombs we’ve had this week that are making it a brutal tape to trade. But there are strategies that work…

Most of them involve super short-term plays like we make in Burn Notice Alerts, where we enter every day before the close and then exit the next morning right after the open.  

Being in the market for such a short period of time reduces risk, and four trades a week (on average) add up to about 200 in a year… so this is a marathon, not a sprint. This trading style isn’t for everyone, of course.

And if you expect to win every trade, this strategy also isn’t for you. We are all about transparency, so here are the important details…

Since the strategy’s inception on Dec. 15, 2020, it has a 55.74% win rate. The average weighted return — including winners and losers — is 1.65% overnight.* 

If this sounds interesting and you want to learn more about the strategy, I hosted a special intro session Monday for a bunch of new members, so check out the video up top! It’s a perfect example of what you can expect from this overnight trading strategy that offers great value over the long haul.
