Don’t Be A Hero and Buy the First Dip

Welcome back to Wall Street Unplugged.

On today’s show, Andrew Horowitz of Horowitz & Company and host of The Disciplined Investor podcast (the second best investing podcast) breaks down the technicals of the market action we’ve been seeing lately… and what that means for your portfolio.

If you’ve been wondering how to navigate this volatile market, Andrew will help you keep your sanity. He advises us about the right time to panic, versus the right time to take advantage of everyone else’s panic.

Andrew also reviews some recent positions he’s taken on—individual names and what impact the administration and Federal Reserve could have on the markets in the near-term.

I also want to thank you all for the love and good wishes you’ve been sending to me and my family as we battle a few health issues. Your support has been overwhelming… and it feels like the Curzios are turning a positive corner.

I also take a moment to recap what’s been going on in this crazy March Madness tournament this year. We’ve seen a lot of upsets and some big surprises as we head into the Final Four.

And stay tuned till the end… I’ll announce some schedule changes for the release of Wall Street Unplugged and Frankly Speaking. These changes should provide you with a more consistent listening experience moving forward.
