-How should you use inverse ETFs?

-Which ETFs allow you to mix offense and defense?

-Do factors such as inflation, recession or the Fed matter to your investment strategy?

-What is the problem with so many investors now using charts? Using charts is critical, but what is the big mistake they are making?

-Why does Rob use multiple time frames in his chart analysis?

-How are the traditional indicators functioning today, in a fast-moving, algorithm-driven market?

-Why your stock is likely to follow the direction of its broad sector or industry, given all the ownership in index funds
