It is so important to understand the cyclicality and expected life cycle of a stock, and the market as a whole, in order to make the best decision and the greatest profit. Often times, people wait until a stock has risen up and up before deciding to buy, just to turn around and have the stock fall. In this episode, we explain the RSI, relative strength index, as well as volatility, tools you should use to measure the movement of a stock, and how big those moves could be. I also share the current state of the market, a reason why the market is down, and share the status of recent options I sold.
