Listen to the Podcast

Hey! It’s Sasha Evdakov it’s September 17th and welcome to the Rapid Recap. This week's lesson is how the Federal Reserve or also known as the FED and interest rates move the stock market.

Now I love doing these Rapid Recaps because I feel like you get so much knowledge, information and insight about the markets because when I first started trading it was not any of this YouTube going on there wasn't a lot of videos in fact the internet was a lot less bandwidth. I remember still when I had to use dial up to connect to the internet.

Why the Market Hates a Strong Dollar

October 21st, 2014

I want to share with why the market hates a strong dollar, and what you really need to know about dollar movement...

How Dollar Plays into Stock Market

You need to understand how the dollar plays into the stock market.

The stock market has a lot of companies that deal business internationally. The U.S. dollar is typically used as a 'safe haven' or reserve currency for these international countries.

If their currency begins to go bad, they may stockpile more of our currency – they are always watching the U.S. dollar. Our currency is considered the ‘place to be’ and is very stable.

The U.S. dollar is used as a safe haven to companies that deal business internationally. As the stock market goes up in terms of a strong dollar, business becomes more expensive and business and pricing exchange become more difficult overseas.

Why is the Stock Market Always Right?

July 8th, 2014

When I break things down, I usually like to look at things in terms of what is being said, what does it mean, and what does it mean to me. I heard that the market was always right in my early years of training but I never understood what the premise behind the phrase really meant.

It wasn’t until a lot later that I really understood this concept and the true meaning behind it. Let’s take for example any chart that you pick, the market is coming together as a living breathing thing, and every tick that you see out there is an agreement on price that has happened. It has occurred.

What is the Pattern Day Trade Rule? (PDT)

April 1st, 2014

What is the Pattern Day Trade Rule?

Pattern Day Trade rule also known as PDT is in place to protect the beginner traders. It is important to know this rule if you have less than $25,000 in your bank account or trading account and you are an active trader.

The rule states if you are an active trader, meaning if you make 4 or more trades in a 5 day period, then you will be stuck in your fourth trade place. Therefore you won’t be able to make any more trades until your early trades are cleared.  For example, if you made two trades on Monday, one on Tuesday, and one on Wednesday, you won’t be able to make a trade on Thursday; therefore, if the market is crashing, you will be stuck in that place.

What Should You Start Trading First? Stocks, Options, Commodities, Forex?

March 25th, 2014

Stocks, Options, Commodities or Forex?

It really comes down to personal preference. Personally, I started with the stock market and prefer it as a starting place for beginners.
Why?

Stocks have a lot more liquidity, they are easier to understand and it’s easier to get in/out of them.

Options are my second choice because you can leverage and make more from your money or trade larger stocks for fewer yields. Basically, it allows you to control more of the expensive stocks.
