Stock Market Rally Needs More than Optimism 3.27.20
The stock market rallied 21% off the lows since the Dow Jones Industrial Average bottomed out at 18,213.

Today's episode of Stocks for Breakfast discusses how to analyze your stocks using longer time frames. We review the monthly charts so you understand how to use the indicators on your stocks.
We also discuss the mistake of trading with an opinion and why you should have a a bias. Sounds the same, but they are not. Having an opinion cost me money yesterday by believing stocks were ready to see selling. They weren't. I missed a few longs.
