As investors and traders, you have an important choice to make. Whether you’re just starting out as a beginner in the stock market today or is a pro trader with decades of experience, how you choose to make your next move matters the most.
What is this “next move” you’re making? The stock market crash is happening in 2022. The Nasdaq ETF (NASDAQ: QQQ) has toppled 24% year-to-date. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 ETF (NYSEARCA: SPY) is down more than 15%! Some signs are also pointing to an economic recession in 2022 or 2023. Most retail traders and investors are feeling the pressure of a stock market crash and potential recession right now. The fact is, this isn’t the same stock market as it was in 2020 or 2021. The beginning of the pandemic saw a huge drop in stock prices. This left retail traders and investors in two frames of mind: panic or excitement.
Those who chose to ignore the doom and gloom of mainstream financial media outlets were handsomely rewarded. In fact, analysts like Ariel’s John Rogers subscribed to this idea that the pandemic implosion was a huge opportunity for investors and retail traders. He said, “This is a ‘once in a lifetime buying opportunity like ’87 and ’08.”
A Once In A Lifetime Opportunity…?
As we’ve come to find out, the stock market in 2020 and 2021 went straight up. Millions of new traders entered the arena during very abnormal conditions. It seemed like each day, every dip the stock market brought got bought up quickly. The result was more new highs. We saw meme stocks like AMC Entertainment (NYSE: AMC) and GameStop (NYSE: GME) surge thousands of percentage points. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) also exploded to record levels. The risk-on climate also resulted in altcoins like Dogecoin and Shiba Inu mounting massive breakouts. Even corporate CEOs like Tesla’s (NASDAQ: TSLA) outspoken Elon Musk joined in on the fun and fueled the flame of fearing missing out on this epic stock market run.
But 2022 is different and learning how to trade stocks and options is more important than ever before. That’s because this isn’t the stock market of 2020 or 2021. Stocks aren’t going up daily. We’ve actually seen a stock market crash and potential recession beginning.
You Have A Big Choice To Make
If you’re a trader or investor in the stock market during 2022’s volatile conditions, you already know that “stonks” aren’t going up like they used to. Having a strategy in place and knowing how to find the best stocks to buy is more difficult but not completely unattainable if you know what you’re doing. The choice is yours:
You can sit back and do nothing. Watch your IRAs, 401Ks, long-term portfolios & short-term trading accounts continue to bleed out, while you sell for major losses and try to hoard as much cash as you can praying for a stock market bounce that you can buy back into.
You can choose to not buy into the panic this stock market crash has created. Easier said than done, right? MAYBE, but IF you tune in to tonight’s live trading stream we will show you that history has taught us that the stock market will recover, and in fact, we have a decent chance of closing out 2022 in the green, which may seem like a crazy statement but it’s not and tonight 5/15/2022 at 8:30 pm ET live on YouTube you will learn why!
