Stock Market Head Fake?

Have you ever “panic sold” your investments after a flash crash, believing they’re going to fall all the way down, only to watch them regain value and go even higher? You run out of cash and get nervous because the market is starting to go away from you.

Chances are, you fell for a head fake.

The current market appears to be moving from one direction to the other. Trade during a head-fake usually happens at key breakout points, like major support or resistance levels.

In this episode, Bryan and John Balmer use some charts to support, identify, and analyze patterns in today’s market.
