3 Simple Trading Lessons to Apply to 2024 

by | Nov 30, 2023

Every trading year has ups and downs. Some have more than others. But all have three characteristics that repeat year after year.

Traders and investors should know, understand and swiftly monetize them.

Let’s see how repeated lessons have unfolded as we look to apply them to 2024.

Lesson No. 1: It’s Never as Bad as We Think

Within several days during March, three lesser-known banks failed. This triggered a sharp sell-off in the Financial sector, as seen in the XLF ETF chart below, and a quick rescue by regulators.

Think what you may about the whole ordeal. I certainly have opinions… But that’s not the point. 

The point is that traders and investors thought the end was near, and many missed out on an incredible buying opportunity.

Lesson No. 2: It’s Never as Good as We Think

Small caps were a darling in 2021.

I recall multiple articles and videos late that year where money managers pontificated that the opportunity in small caps had arrived. Many said they had their highest weightings ever.

Some called this a “pure play” as small caps “broke out” while institutions said they liked the fundamentals.

All of this… right at the top.

Lesson No. 3: When Trading Setups Occur, Act

Multiple opportunities exist every year. They even existed many times in the two charts above.

When they set up, a trader and investor must not delay or second guess.

At the very beginning of November, this occurred after a long pullback that started in July, as shown in the Technology sector (XLK).

Traders and investors who were watching and ready were able to take advantage of gains that completely wiped out the four-month rut — and then some!

If you missed this run, should you beat yourself up? By all means… NO!

Get up, look forward and prepare for the next opportunity.

Think and win!

P.S. The Best Way to Seek Additional Income Right Now

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I’m obsessed with finding ways to maximize my income.

And thanks to inflation hitting a 40-year high… interest rates at peak levels for longer than anyone expected… and global conflicts leaving ugly footprints on supply chains, raw materials and imports…

I think the timing has NEVER been this perfect for me to share one of the best ways I know to generate additional income on your nest egg, week after week…

And it all starts with building what I call the “Ultimate Dividend Portfolio.”

And it’s pretty straightforward to do…

In fact, I recently teamed up with Jack Carter to share the three simple steps you can take today to build an income-producing portfolio of dividend stocks that can help turbocharge your nest egg.
