Cash is a position and patience is in order as we navigate the worst months of the year and the weak spot of the four-year cycle. But 2022 is setting up for a prototypical midterm bottom hitting its low point in late Q3 or early Q4 in the August-October period, just ahead of the midterm elections. Jeff will show you how to navigate this volatility and be ready for the next bull market rally.
