Weekly Trend Following (WTF) is without doubt the most profitable way for retail traders and investors to benefit from inherent opportunities in the financial markets. This style of investing and trading is easy to learn, simple to manage, and requires very little time. It can be used on individual stocks, ETFs, or futures, but also on any equity index if we are looking for exposure to the entire market when we don’t have time to pick individual stocks. In this comprehensive class, Ian Murphy will discuss his favorite Weekly Trend Following strategies, showing recent entry and exit points on his charts. Time permitting, he will also answer questions from attendees.

Long-term government bonds lost -26% in 2022, and only made up 2% of the losses in 2023. Everyone is hoping for recovery with a rate cut. However, if you've been cut by "paper" losses, perhaps you're looking in the wrong place for high yield. By rethinking ROI, we can earn a fantastic "yield" with bills we toss out the window. Examine some lesser-known safe investments that will pay far more than even the 5% you can get on short-term CDs these days.  

 Learn how retail traders are using technology to semi-automate or fully automate their decisions when trading stocks, crypto, futures, and even stock options.

He will discuss the Artificial Intelligence buildout and the key role that semiconductors play in the explosive growth of this industry. He will also discuss the addressable market for GLP-1 medication, as well as current and future potential leaders.

During the first quarter of 2024, the S&P 500 (1) recovered all that it lost in the 2022 bear market on January 19, (2) recorded 22 new all-time highs through March 28, and (3) posted the 11th strongest Q1 return since 1945. Since then, equities have digested some of these gains and experienced sector rotation away from the 2023 high flyers and into the more defensive areas of the market on concerns the Fed will be slower to lower interest rates while inflation remains sticky and GDP growth begins to cool. Investors now want to know if they should buy or bail. Sam Stovall, the chief investment strategist at CFRA Research, will discuss how current conditions may confirm or alter the traditional election-year enthusiasm, as well as share CFRA’s sector, sub-industry, and stock selections in what historically has been a surprisingly profitable year.   

Nvidia and artificial intelligence are all the rage. Without the doubling in share prices of the Magnificent 7 (Amazon, Alphabet, Apple, Meta, Microsoft, Nvidia, and Tesla) in 2023, the 26.3% total returns of the S&P500 would have been just 9.9%. Can a market that is surging on just a handful of stocks keep hitting new highs? Why are investors willing to pay such lofty prices for these mega tech companies? Will any fall the way of Tesla, which is down almost -30% in 2024? (Many were the biggest losers in 2022.) How can investors profit from the promise of AI without getting swallowed up by the volatility?   

Nvidia carries a $3 trillion valuation, even though the company only earned $30 billion in 2023. Apple and Tesla were on fire last year, but are losing revenue year over year, which is why the Magnificent 7 are now the Fantastic 5. Learn how to profit, capture gains, lean into super performers and underweight laggards, and make sure that we have enough safety to smooth out the market gyrations in this invaluable session.
