Coming into the lows of December we published a report to our students suggesting longs where in order though the healthcare, financial, energy and tech dominated markets. We were measuring Institutional Money Flow coming into the markets through Private Equity which bought the markets Dec 18th before the Dec 24th Lows and confirmed during the first few days of January. Once we were positioned, I tweeted on Jan 4th the #BuyTheDip is in full effect for 2019 all the while the media was still negative on how bad a December we had.
In short, if you took your clues from the media or your emotions you most likely missed one of the best BTD opportunities in decades.
