What a week, what a month…
It’s my job to help you learn how to be a better and more confident trader.
In that regard — and in life — I’m a realist and a straight shooter. And I’m more cynical than normal this year.
I’ve gotten a lot of questions about whether or not we’ll get a “Santa rally,” which seems silly to me.
It’s been a bearish tape for the vast majority of 2022… And when that happens, we’re more likely to have a lump of coal situation than we are a Christmas miracle on Wall Street.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t bank some dough riding the market down — we most certainly can if you know how to attack a bear market…
How to Attack a Bear Market
Once again this week, the Federal Reserve peed in everyone’s Cheerios. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone because here’s the thing…
Wall Street is always trying to fool people into thinking a bottom is in and markets are about to rip higher at any moment. That way, there are new buyers and new people committing money. And this is important…
You can’t get sucked in and fooled by these old tricks… and left holding the bag.
There’s no clean break out of bear markets. It’s a gradual process. There will likely be several bear rallies before a bull market begins anew. It’s a gradual process full of fits and starts. Bear markets, on average, last about 18 months.
We’ve done about 12 already, so we have around six more months of this type of action to go…
And by that, I mean a downtrending tape with shocking upward flares… before fading again. Once you realize what’s going on, you can learn exactly how to keep your account intact — and even how to trade it to your benefit by attacking the bear market.
Check out my video up top and let’s talk tradeable levels — I expect us to test November lows before the end of the year. And then we could test October’s lows coming up in January.
The best way I know to make money when the market is likely to fall is by owning puts… so let’s discuss how to attack this bear!
