For the first time in 10 years, we’re in a bear market. Haven’t seen a bear market before? How can you prepare?

The simple answer is that you can’t prepare. Don’t try to predict future markets. Learn to react to what’s happening in the markets. Learn to live in the moment and trade in the moment.

I want you to learn patterns … And different markets have different patterns.

FOR EXAMPLE: Lately, a lot of stocks with terrible long-term charts are spiking for one, two, three, or four days. In the past, stocks with bad long-term charts would only spike for a day. The market is adapting and changing, and you need to learn to adapt and change with it.

If you see a pattern that’s working again and again, try it. You can always practice first. Try to paper trade it with fake money using StocksToTrade.

You can also try trading with a small account. Don’t go all in when you’re testing out a new strategy. But by all means, TEST it in the moment.

You can’t predict what’ll happen in the market. You can’t predict what’ll happen in the future. Instead, learn to react.

It can be a tough lesson, but preparation can sometimes actually make you do worse. It’s still important to study the past. But you need to understand that what worked in the past may not work in the future.

You can still learn from this — there are some parallels. Sometimes the same sectors, the same stocks can spike in a similar manner.

You don’t have to know everything. You don’t have to prepare ahead of time. What you have to do is study the past and then be ready to react to the patterns that are working now.
