Stocks are off to a rocky start this year.
The general trend points down. While that can be discouraging, it’s important to recognize that down markets tend to be volatile. The upside of volatility is that there are short-term trading opportunities.

- Traders think about stocks.
Traders focus on how the next few days look, rather than considering what the company’s earnings will look like in the next quarter.
That requires different tools.
