2023 Stock Market Forecasts Challenges, But Smart Stock Pickers Could Thrive


The stock market suffered large losses in 2022. Uncertainty surrounds 2023.

Due to Fed rate hikes, the Russia-Ukraine war, and recession fears, 2023 is expect to be somewhat a tumultuous trading year.

Uncertainty offers opportunity. There's always a bull market on Wall Street. As the market struggles, smart investors can outperform.

Most 2023 stock market estimates display a mix of optimism and concerns  and forecast the S&P 500 at 3900 by 2023. 

With so much uncertainty, a cautious stance is wise. Long-term investing trends are changing. Investors must monitor sector changes and choose wisely.

As tech stocks seek new footing, some analysts anticipate value stocks outperforming growth companies. Other experts foresee strong infrastructure stocks and M&A prospects in 2023.

2023: Market recovery?

All major indexes fell the most since the 2008 financial crisis in 2022. 

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 8.8% due to its underexposure to technology stocks. The Nasdaq composite fell over 30%, and the S&P 500 fell 20%.

Growth investors had a tough year with the Innovator IBD 50 ETF down 50%.

Heavy pullback factors

Several factors caused the steep declines. Inflation and the Russian invasion of Ukraine hit stocks hard. The Fed changed its mind about inflation being temporary and began aggressively hiking rates to reduce prices. These efforts are bearing fruit, but only after battering markets.

Retail and professional investors have been hit hard as 2022 goes on record for being the worst performing year for major asset classes in 15 years. 

It's one of the toughest markets, especially for buy-and-holders with nowhere to hide, not even bonds.

So what can we expect in 2023?

Good trading! And Happy New Year!  🎉

Kal's Option Trade of the Week - UNG Short Call Vertical

This week we are going in with the Short Call Vertical strategy on UNG (Natural Gas ETF). The reason for choosing this option trade is that the Natural Gas market has been volatile and on a tear for the last few weeks. As contrarians, we will bet it slows down and turns around from here. Purely my assumption, but you can only trade on your own assumptions. :) Watch this video to get the trade details. Hope you enjoy it!

Bitcoin and Ethereum Funds: Two Unusual Activities That Could Result in a Big Move

Today we take a look at the technicals for Bitcoin and Ethereum. The crypto market has been quiet for several months.   On Friday we detected unusual dark pool activities (large block orders) in the Bitcoin Trust Fund and Ethereum Trust Fund, GBTC and ETHE respectively. When smart money know something, they place large orders in the dark pool exchanges, away from the public eye. By doing so, they are positioning themselves ahead of the crowds, in order to benefit from move that will follow, once the news or report is made public. However, dark pool activities   do not   tell us the direction of the next move. It only tell us that a large order(s) has been placed. Only a breakout (bullish) about a resistance level, or a breakdown (bearish) below a support level can confirm the direction of the next move. So, what can we expect next?
