Is This a Bull or Bear Market?

Let’s talk about what’s on every investors mind:

Is This a Bull or Bear Market?

I have written countless articles pointing out the superior merits of the bearish argument. Here are the most recent of those commentaries:

Why is Reity Now 32.5% Short the Market?

Sell in May? HECK YES!!!

And just to be fair, I even stepped into the shoes of the bulls to appreciate where they are coming from in this piece:

Contemplating the Case for a New Bull Market

But watching the volatile action this past week has me pondering a 3rd potential outcome. That being a long term trading range where bulls and bears fight back and forth. And we just chop around between 2,200 and 3,000 for a long time.

Just think about it. The problems of the Coronavirus will not quickly blow away and the bears will always have easy points to make about economic weakness that should result in lower stock prices.

Whereas bulls will say they are not blind to the current problems. Instead they are just looking out to a longer term horizon where the economy gets back on track. Add in unprecedented Fed and Government stimulus and they see it propping up share values.

This gridlock could be in place for quite some time until we have crystal clear proof as to whether the economy will continue to backslide into a deeper recession (or even depression). Or if re-opening the economy goes better than expected stoking the engines of growth that propel stock prices higher.

The above creates a perfect backdrop for a long term trading range where we experience scary drops followed by equally exhilarating rallies. Yet in the grand scheme of things stocks are not really getting any further ahead.

How to Successfully Trade in a Range Bound Market?

It is tempting to think that you can simply buy when stocks head lower in the range. And then sell as they get to the top of the range. But likely that is a fantasy world as volatile markets like we have now are rarely that straight forward.

However, the current market environment is actually the perfect landscape to employ a little known strategy that is favored by may of the elite financial experts. In fact, it is one of the most consistent ways to produce winning trades whether stocks go up, down or even sideways.

Just because some of Wall Street’s top players favor this trading strategy doesn’t mean its complicated.

Nor do you need to invest millions in each position. In fact, you can place these types of trades for as little as a few hundred dollars.
