It’s one of the most common questions we get. “How can I make money when the market is going down?”

The truth is simple: there’s no such thing as a bad market. There is, however, bad information and if your current trading strategy is lagging the market, well then it’s going to be very difficult if you don’t see these declines coming.

That being said – our customers are finding plenty of opportunities to make money in these down markets. We share their strategies below.

Here are two ways to make money in a declining market:

Selling Short

Smart traders know that the market is a two-way street and that you can trade from the short side. VantagePoint’s forecasts provide insight 1-3 days in advance. With that information, traders can take a short position and actually make money in a declining market.

However, not every trader is comfortable with this technique. No worries, there’s another way.

Go Long on Inverse ETFs
