Trading In 2020 – The Year In Review

Posted by Pete Stolcers on December 30

The market is overbought technically and fundamentally, but the notion of another $500 billion in stimulus checks is keeping buyers engaged. This is a good time to keep your trading to a minimum.

Trading volumes will be light and we are going to see some choppy price action on light volume as funds window dress. It is typical to see profit taking on the high fliers and loss taking on some of the laggards to offset taxable gains.

When we return next week the focus will immediately shift to the Georgia Senate run-off. If Republicans can win one of the two seats the market will continue to tread water and I believe this outcome is “priced in”.

For tonight’s weekly swing trading video I am doing a 2020 year in review. It has been an incredible 12 months and I am using my daily market comments and my YouTube videos to recreate the year. It’s been fun to go back and look at the old trades and to see how the analysis worked out.

Market first, market first, market first. We have been on the right side of every market move this year.

There have been a lot of improvements to Option Stalker this year and it finds the best stocks. Each week I highlighted at least 4 new trades in the Weekly Swing Trading Video with a target profit of 25% return. Out of more than 200 trades we have only had 5-6 losers.

Look for choppy action the last two days of the year. Keep your trading light.

We are going to knock the cover off of the ball in 2021 and I look forward to finding many great trades with all of you next year.
