How to Manage Your Positions During Times of War

by | Feb 24, 2022 | Stocks

It’s the long-feared time we’ve all been dreading… 

Russia launched a full-scale invasion in Ukraine, breaking through the country’s border in the Kyiv region. It’s unfortunate, particularly for the people who live there, and it made a mess out of the stock market on Thursday. 

But… 

We’re in the market to make money, and right now is one of the best buying opportunities in history. 

So let’s take a look at a few of my charts so I can help calm everyone’s nerves and show you how to manage stocks during the Ukraine crisis.

How to Manage Stocks During the Ukraine Crisis

Here’s something interesting to note when learning how to manage stocks during times of crisis, including now with what’s happening in Ukraine…

Take a look at the number of stocks trading above their 200-day moving averages right now…

You’ll notice that about 80% of all stocks are trading above their 200-day MA. 

This chart also shows about 20 years of data, so you’ll see that we don’t go below these levels too often. 

Now, take a look at the number of Nasdaq 100 stocks trading above their 50-day MA…

Only 3% of its stocks are trading above their 50-day MA… That’s lower than the lows of March 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic took the world by storm. 

It might be a good idea to go long on the Nasdaq 100 — tracked by the Invesco QQQ Trust Series 1 (Nasdaq: QQQ) — because it’s at the same exact levels it bottomed out on the previous two crashes. 

For my trivia buffs out there who are wondering, the only time we went lower once reaching these levels was in 2008… when the market really crashed. 

So in other words, we should be close to the bottom. 

Check out my short video below for more information on how to manage stocks during times of crisis like what’s happening in Ukraine, and some more key safety levels to pay attention to right now. 

I hope this helps!

P.S. Anyone who’s traded stocks before knows the market’s unpredictable. I mean, it can go up, get stuck for months, and then decide to crash. 

So to the average person, it’s hard to get a good idea on where things are headed next… 

That’s why Joy of the Trade Head Trader Jeff Zananiri wants to show us the single best trading opportunity he’s seen in years! 

And it’s an opportunity that’s already paid investors as much as 2,582% the last time it hit… 

Act on It Now!
