  • In 2022, the popular 60/40 portfolio has had the worst performance ever.
  • For the regular readers of the Morning Capsule, it is no secret that there is turbulence in the stock market for the following reasons.

China conducted an emergency meeting with banks to figure out how to get around potential U.S. sanctions in the event of a regional conflict.

Why would China conduct such a meeting in the first place, and more importantly why would China publicize this meeting?

In our analysis, this meeting indicates that China is testing waters about a potential attack on Taiwan at a time when the U.S. is preoccupied with Ukraine.  All bullish investors should take this risk into account.  Consider paying attention to the “Protection Bands And What To Do Now” section below.

Protection Bands And What To Do Now?

It is important for investors to look ahead and not in the rearview mirror.

Consider continuing to hold existing positions. Based on individual risk preference, consider holding 🔒 in cash or treasury bills or allocated to short-term tactical trades; and short to medium-term hedges of 🔒, and short term hedges of 🔒. This is a good way to protect yourself and participate in the upside at the same time.

You can determine your protection bands by adding cash to hedges.  The high band of the protection is appropriate for those who are older or conservative. The low band of the protection is appropriate for those who are younger or aggressive. If you do not hedge, the total cash level should be more than stated above but significantly less than cash plus hedges.

It is worth reminding that you cannot take advantage of new upcoming opportunities if you are not holding enough cash.  When adjusting hedge levels, consider adjusting partial stop quantities for stock positions (non ETF); consider using wider stops on remaining quantities and also allowing more room for high beta stocks.  High beta stocks are the ones that move more than the market.
