A recession, by definition, occurs when there is a prolonged contraction of the economy. Businesses start to lose money and the country in question’s gross domestic product begins to go down. Growth essentially halts and the economy takes steps backward. The general trend of the stock market during a recession will point downward. This, however, does not necessarily mean that there is no way to make money in the stock market. Between day trading and short sales, there is plenty of opportunity left to create wealth using the Delphi Scalper; you just need to be a bit more creative than your fellow traders. Short selling stocks will work if you are looking for a quick day trade. But if you are thinking of position trades, you will need a different approach.
Recessions might be scary but you don’t need to worry. Both currencies and commodities hold a bit more appeal than downward trending stocks, simply because people still need money and material goods. Gold is a great commodity because of its rarity and international value. Another commodity that fits this description is oil. People need to drive places and oil is a limited resource. A low supply met with demand means long term growth.
Investing in the currencies of countries not hit by recession is also a valuable tool. This latter point is a bit more difficult because often recessions are pandemic. This means that you might need to do more research than just looking at the world’s major currencies to find your best deals.
