The Top 3 Trading Lessons from 2019
Ok folks, thankfully 2019 is over!
Or, maybe not "thankfully"; the risks that existed in 2019 continued its existence in 2020, and given that parts of the world are about one bomb away from annihilation, there is little room for escape.

The index provided positive moves at the beginning of 2019. But, the bulls could not hold on to their rather weak grip, and they lost control (mildly put) on the index by June 2019.
It was a nice little mayhem after that.
