The beginning of a new year is a perfect time to take a step back and consider how you will improve your decision-making process!  Dave will present his five New Year's Resolutions for 2024, break down his top charts to watch as 2024 begins, and share how he will use StockCharts to better identify opportunities and manage risk in the new year.  Mindless investors repeat mistakes of years past, while mindful investors unwind bad habits and develop good habits instead.  Be a more mindful investor in 2024! 

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 StockCharts.com, 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!
