How COVID Has Changed Investing, PART II

Below is a Jade Bronco diagram I like to use regularly. It is based on real numbers and shows a historical timeline of the market, demonstrating the direction of the market from early in the last century to today. Just imagine how much your portfolio would have grown over just the past few decades, even during the market’s “consolidation” periods.   

DOW Market 20 Year Cycle

As I speak with friends, family and potential students about what we do as a coaching company, I see that many people like to compare trading in the market to going to Las Vegas and putting all your money on red at the closest craps table. And the one thing that everyone admits to me is that they just don’t have the knowledge and skill set to make money in the market. 

The Skills You Need To Be A Successful Trader

Look, success as a trader (and I am talking about a high success rate), is a skill set and it requires the development of a certain kind of muscle memory, if you will.  What if I told you that trading can be as simple as putting a round peg in a round hole? And what if I told you that there is even a “hack” to becoming a highly successful trader in the market?

Well, let me introduce you to Candlestick Charting!  Candlestick charts are thought to have originated in 18th century Japan and used in trading rice. And how were introduced to the Western world in the seventies by Steve Nison in his book Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques. 

This picture below shows a basic trading chart.  You’ve probably seen them before. They show the daily movement of the price of a stock with longer-term views in “candlesticks.”  Typically, red candles show a price drop and green ones indicate an increase. 

Stock Price Candlesticks Chart

Price patterns are nothing more than formations created by the changes in the price of a stock. And once you begin to learn the art of candlestick charting, patterns will begin to pop out at you. Learning to read these patterns is at the foundation of what we call “technical analysis.” Here is the “hack” that I mentioned above, and the key to becoming a highly successful trader in the market. 

Predictive Power of Price Patterns Hack To Trading

It’s called the Predictive Power of Price Patterns.  It’s easy to remember and it’s the key to learning how to determine the right stocks to either invest in or trade. You can become an expert in technical analysis just by learning what a pattern is telling you about the direction it will go in the future, with a very high probability of success.

Price movement creates many patterns, but there are some specific ones that we trade on in our daily Jade Bronco trading group. The patterns in the diagram below indicate the strongest key patterns – trending, reversal breakouts and continuation patterns – that we are always on the hunt for.  

Key Market Breakout Patterns

Look, making money in the market is not as difficult as some news agencies and market pundits like to make it look. With more and more of us staying at home, working from home and more time on our hands, and with right now being one of the hottest markets in history….  Now is the time to learn how to become a highly successful investor.
