One trading day left and 2018 is in the books. Usually, when we enter the final couple weeks of trading, volumes dry up and volatility comes in.
However, we’ve seen unprecedented market volatility this December. In fact, the day after Christmas, the Dow had its largest single point gain in history (+1,000 pts).
Despite the monster rally, stocks still finished relatively flat on the week.
One of the main questions people have been asking me is this: “Are you worried about trading the markets, now that they’ve become so volatile?”
My response – Welcome to my world.
You see, I specialize in trading small-cap stocks. Furthermore, I typically trade stocks that have catalysts. In other words, I actually try to find the most volatile small-cap stocks to trade – every single day.
Because in my world, volatility equals opportunity.
In fact, I scan through thousands of small-cap stocks, in search for small-cap stocks that are beaten up and oversold.
Check out the top Wall Street gainers from Friday…
WATT found some support heading into the close before I bought it. Moreover, this was a stock that has been beaten down. Well, just a day after I bought WATT, the stock doubled at one point!
Not only that, but one of my patterns also showed up in Blue Apron Holdings (APRN), and here’s what I was looking at.
Now, there are a number of reasons why a stock can bounce from oversold conditions. For example, Blue Apron’s stock surged last Thursday after the company announced that it was teaming up with Weight Watchers to create a healthier home cooking menu.
You see, identifying the chart pattern is just one part of the equation. For a beaten up stock to reverse its course, it needs a catalyst.
But here is the thing… not all catalysts are the same. Other positive catalysts may include: insiders buying (boosting confidence), an analyst recommendation, an earnings release, and much more.
On top of that, you have to look at other dynamics like short float ratios, trading volume, and bid/ask spreads.
If this all sounds confusing that is okay.
It takes some time and experience to get a feel for trading small cap-stocks. That’s why I stream my trading account live. In addition, I send out a watchlist of stocks that I’m looking to trade… that way you can get a sense of what I’m going to do– before I do it.
Now, my goal for next year is to make $5K a day trading small-cap stocks. I think its possible given all this volatility everyone is anticipating. That said, I want you to join me for the $1M quest. That’s why I’m offering Millionaire Roadmap its lowest price ever.
The best defense is offense… turn this volatility into opportunity.
