Tackle Today: Panic is in the Air

November 26, 2021

≈ So much for a sleepy session. ≈


A new mutation of Covid is wreaking havoc on risk assets this morning. Stocks indexes are gapping lower by 1.5% to 3%. Oil is down 6.5%. Bitcoin is off 5.5%. With a holiday-shortened session, it’s going to be interesting to see how things play out. So here are a few tips for handling the drama.

First: It never pays to panic. Don’t give in to the hysteria and fearmongering. Even if this sparks a significant correction, keep your emotions in check.

Second: Follow your plan. You do have one, right? Rules and guidelines should steer your hand on a morning like this, not guts or feelings.

Third: Play the long game. If this gap derails some of your trades and you take unexpected losses in the days to come, remember that you’re in this for the long haul. Randomness reigns in the short run. Over the long-term, your edge and profits rule.  

Keep your wits about you, team!
