This momentum-based trend trading class discovered on the Sector Selector that our growth-focused sectors have finally swung into the Top 3 rankings once again: Discretionary, Communications, and Technology. Meanwhile, defensive sectors like Health Care, Utilities, and Staples are at the bottom. That suggests risk appetite is strong across the broad market. We focused on the Financials sector with our trade set-ups today.
This basic options class discussed the long-term business owner mindset and why a DGI practitioner typically needs to learn how to do the hard things in order to have exceptional results. At the center of that conversation is being willing to be a contrarian when most people around you aren't. An independent mindset comes in handy for most long term investors. We focused on a Staple vs a Utility in today's match-up.
This long-term investing class discussed the benefits of building an income stream with dividend stocks to finance all (or part of) retirement. We also looked at a batch of dividend stocks recommended by an outside organization to see if it matched up with our philosophy here. Our head-to-head matchup was in the Communications sector.
This swing trading class discussed the sharp market rally since the beginning of the year. Similar to our discussion about the more speculative/growth-focused areas leading from a sector perspective, we are witnessing that from a factor perspective as well. The FOMC meeting is later today and things could change. We ended class with two bullish energy-related swing trades and a bearish financial swing trade.
