Navigating the Stock Market as 2024 Approaches: Insights and Strategies As 2024 approaches, the stock market is presenting significant trends that demand the attention of astute traders. Traditionally, the year-end is characterized by reduced trading volumes, a scenario that often skews towards bullish tendencies. A cardinal rule for traders is to never short a dull market, and we are on the cusp of the year's period of lowest volume. This dynamic is further amplified as seasoned traders take their year-end vacations, entrusting the market to their less experienced colleagues, often referred to as the 'JV squad'. Their primary objective during this phase is to ensure market stability amidst the thin trading volume.
