I don't have that insight, I mostly know when markets are going to crash, lol.
This training I'm looking at for $2500, though, seems to be well suited for figuring out which stocks to buy.
The only kind of buy I'm able to recommend is the type right after a market crash concludes. Which, for now, means no buy recommendations from me, lol.
I'd recommend buying among the DOW30 stocks (Spread it out) when the DOW reaches below 14000. The next peak some 9 years from now or so will exceed 26000. Every DJIA peak has exceeded the previous one, and that trend will no doubt continue.
If the nasdaq crashes (IXIC) (Say, reaches below 3000 and definitely in the 2200-2500 range), I'd definitely buy THAT! And hold on until the next peak.
I don't think I'm going to buy that training until the bear market concludes, probably 2-3 years from now. Seems like it has a lot more upside potential than riding a bull market.
I think I figured out a way to make money shorting stocks.
Cho, my nuke school friend, was following "hot stocks" using those websites that track stock purchases of the richest traders, so he would be following them...
surprise, so were so many others, so he'd reach right when it peaked, then it'd soon crash.
I wonder if I did just the opposite, and shorted those very same stocks.
Essentially, short the "pump and dump" stocks (Which I'd argue those were.).
He claims he lost $5000, that implies I would've made about that much. Probably actually twice as much, with the 150% margin requirements.
Man, I'd be making so much money shorting stocks. It's just... it doesn't seem like it's cheap and easy to do as far as I know. Not offered on the free platforms, anyway.
