First-Half 2020 Recap

Well, what can I say about the first half of 2020? I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that was probably the worst six months of many people’s lives. Incredibly, it didn’t end up being the worst six months for the stock market at all. The Federal Reserve stepped up and essentially said they are willing and able to spend literally anything it takes to support the economy and the financial markets. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 outbreak is raging full-speed ahead.

Here’s a look back at my most read Benzinga stories of the first half of 2020:

Want to learn more about how to profit off the stock market? Or maybe you just want to be able to look sophisticated in front of your coworkers when they ask you what you are reading on your Kindle, and you’d prefer to tell them “Oh, I’m just reading a book about stock market analysis,” rather than the usual “Oh, I’m just looking at pics of my ex-girlfriend on Facebook.” For these reasons and more, check out my book, Beating Wall Street with Common Sense. I don’t have a degree in finance; I have a degree in neuroscience. You don’t have to predict what stocks will do if you can predict what traders will do and be one step ahead of them. I made a 400% return in the stock market over five years using only basic principles of psychology and common sense. Beating Wall Street with Common Sense is now available on Amazon, and tradingcommonsense.com is always available on your local internet!
