This year has been marked by elevated volatility, increased uncertainty, and dramatic shifts in the equity markets driven by the Fed's changing policies. That's why Dave, chief market strategist at, put together a special presentation to show you what five charts can help you "beat the bear."

During your time together, he will strive to answer three imperative questions: How have these five charts helped him navigate volatility in the past? How does this market cycle compare to previous ones? And what can we anticipate for the remainder of 2022?

What's the first chart you look at every trading day? David has a morning coffee routine that begins with a weekly chart of the S&P 500 along with a proprietary technical analysis model based on trend following and price momentum. In this session, he'll share why this chart is so important to his daily routine, what it's telling him about the current market environment, and how to avoid the key mistake many novice investors make with technical analysis!

Join Julius and Dave as they focus on the rotation between growth and value, small and large, cyclicals and defensive stocks. Which groups are poised to outperform given the volatile market environment, rapidly changing breadth conditions and the Fed's interest rate policy? You'll leave this session better equipped to navigate the markets during uncertain times!

Top investors find success by optimizing what is within their control, including their daily/weekly routines and decision-making processes. They also plan for things outside of their control, such as risk management measures to address elevated volatility and market uncertainty. In this session, Dave will share seven habits of top-performing investors, in a session that will challenge you to rethink how you spend your time, encourage you to upgrade your risk management efforts, and help you develop a consistent routine of technical market analysis to minimize emotional baggage in your investment process!
