Our Experts Weigh in on the U.S.-China Trade War
The stakes in the U.S.-China trade war keep getting higher.
The U.S. raised tariffs on more than $200 billion worth of Chinese goods. Then China levied its own retaliatory tariffs on $60 billion of U.S. products.
Many investors have already gone into panic mode. We saw a massive stock sell-off shake up the markets over the past few weeks.
And the pressure to sell isn’t letting up anytime soon.
Our own experts are keeping their eyes peeled to the markets. And they all agree on one thing: The panic sellers have it wrong.
Trade tensions will ease as the markets settle from the latest sell-off. But this won’t happen overnight.
Former hedge fund manager Charles Mizrahi explained it best. The U.S. economy has prevailed through some of the biggest catastrophes in history. There’s no reason to believe this situation will be any different.
That’s why he’s advising his readers not to join the panic sellers. Instead, he argues we should look at history for guidance on how to trade through the volatility:
Over the past 120 years, the stock market has experienced two world wars, the Great Depression, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, a tech boom and bust, runaway inflation and a financial crisis.
And through it all, the stock market and the U.S. economy powered ahead.
If you focus on the underlying business instead of the day-to-day gyrations of the stock market, you’ll end up a lot wealthier. You’ll also experience less stress.
The plan is simple: Buy great businesses when they are selling at bargain prices … then sit there and do nothing.
It’s not any more complicated than that.
Charles invested throughout the biggest boom-and-bust markets in history. Even during the Great Recession, Charles led his clients to market-beating gains.
He regularly recommends bullish stock positions stock positions in Alpha Investor Report . Readers trade stocks based on his Alpha-3 filters, which judge a stock’s merits on factors such as revenue growth and strong leadership.
Pot stock guru Anthony Planas also took the time to explain why he thinks it’s best to keep a long-term view on the current market downturn. This is especially true if you’re looking to add more cannabis stocks to your portfolio:
The sell-off in the marijuana market was an overreaction. Domestic producers aren’t directly affected by the trade war. And Canadian producers aren’t affected at all. This is a buying opportunity in the marijuana sector. Investors looking to make a quick buck in the space fled at the slightest market scare. Long-term investors have a chance to add to their positions during this temporary market weakness.
Anthony offers his analysis of the cannabis market every week in Marijuana Markets: A POTcast. He recently told readers about the FDA’s plans to hold a public hearing that will decide the future of CBD-infused products.
And the results could ensure that CBD-infused snacks and more join the regular items on your grocery list in the near future. Click the image below if you’re interested in hearing more of Anthony’s take.
Finally, Chad Shoop let us know why he expects stocks to see a year-end rally despite analysts’ trade war fears:
Negative headlines drive the markets from day to day. I always focus on the trend. The fact is the S&P 500 hit new highs at the beginning of the month, and the market is still trending higher.
The 200-day moving average is a key level to watch. That’s around 2,780 for the S&P 500. We should only feel nervous if it breaks below the average. But as long as that level holds, I see stocks surging into the end of the year.
Chad uses his trading expertise to bring profitable trades to readers … in any market!
