Stocks were up heading Monday, a welcome reprieve following the worst week for the market in 12 years. On Monday morning’s PreMarket Prep, co-hosts Joel Elconin and Dennis Dick outlined how to think about the market this week.
“If you’re coming in and buying this morning, you’re basically banking on somewhat containment, of vaccines happening a lot quicker than people say it can happen,” Dennis said. “Because if this thing does spread and it does not get contained...this could be a serious thing where you could see 100 million people in the U.S. get coronavirus. And I’m not saying this is going to happen. I’m saying this is scenario analysis. So you need to be prepared. There is the potential that this market could go a lot lower.”
Joel, noting the market’s recent propensity for quick recoveries, said the biggest thing to watch for is whether stocks rebound with such ferocity that the charts form a “V bottom” shape.
“Is this a V bottom? I guess that’s the question of the day. Are we going to have a V bottom?”

“The number one thing as a trader interacting with the market right now is that we move from a region of low volatility to a region of high volatility. And that means how we engage with the market needs to be very much more measured. And realize that everything that ought to hold might not. Everything that might dip might dip much harder.”
