AAs investors and traders, you have an important choice to make. Whether you’re starting out as a beginner in the stock market today or you’re a professional trader with decades of experience, how you choose to take your next step matters most.
What is this “next move” you are making? The stock market crash occurs in 2022. The Nasdaq ETFs (NASDAQ: QQQ) has fallen 24% since the start of the year. During this time, the S&P 500 ETFs (NYSEARCA:SPY) is down more than 15%! There are also some signs pointing to an economic recession in 2022 or 2023. Most retail traders and investors are currently feeling the pressure of a stock market crash and potential recession. The thing is, it’s not the same stock market as it was in 2020 or 2021. The onset of the pandemic saw a huge drop in stock prices. This has left retail traders and investors in two states of mind: panic or excitement.
Those who chose to ignore the pessimism of mainstream financial media have been handsomely rewarded. In fact, analysts like Ariel’s John Rogers bought into this idea that the pandemic implosion was a huge opportunity for investors and retail traders. He said, “It’s a unique buying opportunity like ’87 and ’08.”
A once in a lifetime opportunity…?
As we just discovered, the stock market in 2020 and 2021 went straight up. Millions of new traders entered the arena under very abnormal conditions. It seemed like every day, every drop brought by the stock market was quickly redeemed. The result was more new highs. We’ve seen meme stocks like AMC Entertainment (NYSE: AMC) and GameStop (NYSE: GME) jumped thousands of percentage points. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) also surged to record highs. The risky climate has also led altcoins like Dogecoin and Shiba Inu to mount massive breakouts. Even corporate CEOs like from Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) Outspoken Elon Musk joined in the fun and fueled the flame of fear of 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. That’s because it’s not the stock market of 2020 or 2021. Stocks don’t go up daily. We actually saw a stock market crash and a potential recession begin.
You have a big choice to make
If you are a trader or investor in the stock market during the volatile conditions of 2022, you already know that stonks are no longer rising 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 are doing. The choice is yours:
You can sit and do nothing. Watch your IRAs, 401Ks, long-term portfolios and short-term trading accounts continue to bleed, as you sell for big losses and try to hoard as much money as possible praying for a stock market rebound in which you can redeem.
You can choose not to buy into the panic that this stock market crash has created. Easier said than done, right?
