How to Successfully Trade a Stock Market Crash - Black Monday October 19th 1987InvestorEducation / Financial Crash Oct 19, 2016 - 07:35 AM GMT
It's that time of the year again when the stock market doom merchants are at their most vocal as they focus on the historic apex of the darkest month for stocks of the year, October the 19th, the 29th anniversary of the 1987 Black Monday stock market crash that few saw coming but ever since many expect to repeat. So regardless of what the stock market has actually done thus far, by this point of the year the perma bears can always be seen literally jumping up and down like demented rabbits proclaiming that a crash is once more imminent as they point to a myriad of harbingers of the stock market apocalypse. So it is no wonder that October tends to be an unusually irrational month for where stock market expectations are concerned, and never more so than for this year given the chaos of this years US election election cycle that probably features the worst two candidates in US election history which ensures that America loses no matter who wins.
So doom once more prevails despite the fact that even if this time stocks do by chance crash, that EVERY crash in the general stock market indices such as the Dow, S&P and FTSE have always resolved in the mother of all buying opportunities as I will cover in a three part series.
So firstly in this video I will demonstrate how to actually successfully trade a stock market crash and not just any crash but the mother of all crashes that of October 19th 1987 that provides some valuable real world trading lessons that are just as valid today as they were near 30 years ago.
Also a reminder of my recent video that kick starts my latest series of videos on how to profit from the machine intelligence exponential mega-trend.
Can Trump Still Win?
And lastly my most recent video analysis answers the question whether Trump can still win despite everything pointing to Hillary easily winning the US Presidential election, the pollsters, bookies, pundits and forecasters ALL saying Hillary is going to win, however it may not be quite over yet -
So here we stand on the 19th of October with about 3 weeks to go and with no sign of Trump even hitting bottom yet/ So whilst I will come back to a forecast conclusion towards the end of October, however it looks like it's going to take a miracle to undo the damage done during during the past 3 weeks, so if this trend persists then by the end of October even Trump may by then have thrown in the towel and no longer be actively campaigning to win the election but rather going on rampage seeking revenge on the Republican party for their percieved bretrayal.
