The New Normal & How To Profit From It by Ryan Henry
Not The Usual Party
Is there such a thing as a “normal” market environment anymore? From the looks of it, probably not, but that may not be a bad thing. There are still opportunities to make a lot of money. We’ll explore them here.
I don’t know if there is such a thing as a normal market environment anymore. I’ve been trading for over 20 years now. Looking back over that time period, it’s hard to find a point when things fit into the category of normal. In the late 1990s, the market was in hyperdrive. Call me crazy, but when a major market index like the NASDAQ doubles over the course of a year, I wouldn’t call it normal market behavior. In the early 2000s, the blue-chip indexes were lopped in half in less than three years; the bleeding on the NASDAQ didn’t stop until it was about a quarter of its bull market high. Again, that’s not normal.
