How to beat the stock market’s worst days: The right strategies
By Chris MooneyA recent article in the Wall Street Journal highlights how stock market trading can be as difficult as hitting a home run.
The article, titled “How to beat stock market bad times: the right strategies,” details how the markets can go down.
In its conclusion, the Wall St. Journal writes:If you want to get to the bottom of the stock-market problems, we suggest you start with our article: The bottom line is, trading is an inherently risky business.
There is no easy way to do it right.
If you’re in a financial crisis, you don’t just trade for profit.
You have to find a way to protect yourself from bad outcomes.
The article cites the example of a man who was forced to sell his home because he couldn’t pay his mortgage.
He went into debt, and that’s how he got to where he is today.
What’s the risk?
If the market was going to go down, he might not be able to sell, and he’d be left holding the bag.
That would mean he’d still have to pay his house.
But, if the market were to go up, he’d likely be able in time to recoup his investment.
That means he’d have a greater chance of earning the profit he needs to live comfortably.
If you’re trading stock for profit, you need to learn what makes it work for you.
You need to know what makes the market work, so you can be prepared to put in the time and effort to do your best to stay ahead.
It’s not just about trading.
It’s about making informed decisions, like when to trade and when to hold.
