Day Trading vs. Investing - The Coach’s Playbook

Even though we’re surrounded by uncertainty, you can’t deny that there’s a lot of opportunity in the markets right now. These are the times that both day traders and investors live for. This environment is ripe for what some people are calling a once in a lifetime opportunity to build real wealth.

Day Trading vs Investing

We’re Back

For the first time in more than a month we’re starting to see a minor semblance of sanity come back into the markets. The VIX has eased back a little, and the daily trading ranges have started to narrow down. If you’re willing to take the time to do some research, and you have a bit of discretionary cash on the sidelines, there’s some really great deals floating around out there. 

Keep in mind that we talking about deals, we mean value more than price. A lot of good companies took real significant hits, so their stock price doesn’t necessarily reflect the actual value of some of these companies. Try to remember that.

The market always looks its best at the top and its worst at the bottom. We’re not trying to call a bottom, but from a long-term perspective, these prices are a bargain hunters best friend.

Here are a few markets we’re looking at:

  • Stock index futures
  • Crude Oil
  • FX

Never say never, because anything can happen. If history has taught us anything, it’s that you won’t lose money in the long run if you buy the dips in the stock market and hold on for the ride.

Stay safe, and trade well!
