How To Trade Stocks In June 2024

There’s a new pattern in the stock market right now.

Don’t worry, the framework that we use to trade is still the same!

Here’s the difference:

Due to the overall market strength in 2024 and the return of meme-stock volatility thanks to Keith Gill and GameStop Corporation (NYSE: GME), we’re watching volatile stock spikes follow our framework at a different time of day.

It’s called the 10:45 A.M. rule.

There’s a lot of volatility right after the market opens in the first hour, between 9:30 A.M. Eastern and 10:30 A.M. Eastern.

And there are amazing opportunities to profit during that volatility. But the price moves fast and there isn’t as much price action to help find key support and resistance levels.

Instead … Thanks to the immense bullish momentum in this market, a trader can wait until 10:45 A.M. (this is an inexact science) and find a decent setup using price action from earlier that morning.

Usually bullish momentum dies down mid day, that’s what makes this pattern “new”.

I used the 10:45 A.M. rule to trade four stocks last week. They all followed our trading framework. And I snagged profits from each one.

This is the #1 pattern I’m looking for today, Monday, June 17, and throughout the week!

The 10:45 A.M. Rule

Like I said, I used this pattern to trade four stocks last week:

  • Airship AI Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: AISP) on Tuesday.
  • DDC Enterprise Limited (NYSE: DDC) on Wednesday.
  • Longeveron Inc. (NASDAQ: LGVN) on Thursday.
  • Kaival Brands Innovations Group Inc. (NASDAQ: KAVL) on Friday

My students had EVERY opportunity to trade these runners. I posted on X all throughout the week!

See the posts below:

Here’s an example of my profit on KAVL from Friday using the 10:45 A.M. pattern:

I snagged 3% from the 29% available, LOL.

You can do better than me! I have a crazy schedule traveling and teaching. It can hold me back from truly capitalizing on these plays.

A LOT of my students did better than me.

See my post from X below:

But, there’s one factor a trader needs to ensure they’re prepared for these big stock spikes.

How To Find THE RIGHT Spike

There are thousands of stocks spiking every day.

By the time 10:45 A.M. rolls around … There could be hundreds of stocks that look like they could follow our pattern …

Don’t waste time on bad setups. They distract from the true profit opportunities!

My students and I had eyes on the right stocks last week because we got trade alerts before the market even opened.

Take a look at the alert we got on KAVL below:

The available research on day trading suggests that most active traders lose money. Fees and overtrading are major contributors to these losses.

A 2000 study called “Trading is Hazardous to Your Wealth: The Common Stock Investment Performance of Individual Investors” evaluated 66,465 U.S. households that held stocks from 1991 to 1996. The households that traded most averaged an 11.4% annual return during a period where the overall market gained 17.9%. These lower returns were attributed to overconfidence.

A 2014 paper (revised 2019) titled “Learning Fast or Slow?” analyzed the complete transaction history of the Taiwan Stock Exchange between 1992 and 2006. It looked at the ongoing performance of day traders in this sample, and found that 97% of day traders can expect to lose money from trading, and more than 90% of all day trading volume can be traced to investors who predictably lose money. Additionally, it tied the behavior of gamblers and drivers who get more speeding tickets to overtrading, and cited studies showing that legalized gambling has an inverse effect on trading volume.

A 2019 research study (revised 2020) called “Day Trading for a Living?” observed 19,646 Brazilian futures contract traders who started day trading from 2013 to 2015, and recorded two years of their trading activity. The study authors found that 97% of traders with more than 300 days actively trading lost money, and only 1.1% earned more than the Brazilian minimum wage ($16 USD per day). They hypothesized that the greater returns shown in previous studies did not differentiate between frequent day traders and those who traded rarely, and that more frequent trading activity decreases the chance of profitability.

These studies show the wide variance of the available data on day trading profitability. One thing that seems clear from the research is that most day traders lose money .
