The normal reaction to “Market in Correction” is to tune out and wait for the market environment to improve. This is what most investors do, ending up with disappointing portfolio performance as a result.


Smart investors embrace corrections so they can identify leading stocks that are resisting the downtrend while building bases.


Join MarketSmith Product Coaches and special guest Scott O’Neil, president of MarketSmith, as they discuss the importance of continuously tracking market activity to identify those key indicators of a market turning positive. They’ll also discuss previous market corrections and how historical precedent can provide a reference map for market shifts.
