Ep. 550: Frankly Speaking: A List of Hurricane Trades For Next Season

In this and every episode of Frankly Speaking, we discuss your top questions about the markets, stocks, the economy – even sports.

This week:

A list of hurricane trades for next season… How to avoid artificial selling… What’s moving gold today… One of my favorite lessons from Jim Cramer…


  1. “I’m guilty of holding on to my losers for too long… and cutting my winners short. What’s the best strategy on when to sell?” – James [00:48] 
  2. “What’s the easiest way for investors to get in early, ahead of everyone else, on short-term events like hurricanes?” – Joe [09:07] 
  3. “If the brink of war with North Korea isn’t moving gold or silver much… shouldn’t we look elsewhere?” – Todd [17:59] 
  4. “What’s the best entrance strategy: Taking full positions immediately?… or scaling in?” – Jamison [22:56]

As always, thanks to everyone who participated.

Frank Curzio
