I’ve never seen a year that argued more for “sticking to your plan” than 2020. If you fell asleep, or forgot you owned stocks, from March to August, you would’ve shrugged your shoulders and said “what was the fuss about?”

Dwell on the quote, “We are more often frightened than hurt; and we suffer more from imagination than from reality, ~Lucius Annaeus Seneca,"  The wisdom it conveys about our experiences as investors lives through the ages.

There are lessons we learned from the market during this crisis but they pale in comparison to lessons we learned about ourselves. Let’s take a look at this past year in the markets and see what wisdom we can glean for our future investor behavior success. Michael will lead us through the 5 biggest take-a-ways from this past year in the stock markets using humor and factual data as done in his popular blog, Bull & Baird.

Meet Michael Antonelli 

Michael graduated from Purdue University in 1995 with a degree in history and moved to CT to work in the back office of AIG trading. He moved to Chicago in 1997 to work in the back office of Dean Witter's futures division before moving to a 24-hour trading desk in 1999 to execute futures and options for Fimat, a division of Societe Generale. He got his MBA at the University of Chicago in 2007 before coming to Baird on the Equity Trading Desk in March 2007 as a Sales Trader, assigned to the International team.

Michael began writing a daily email in 2010 as a way to let overseas clients know what happened while they slept. He started posting it online in 2013 and it is now the Bull and Baird blog. Michael was born in San Diego, CA in 1973. He has a wife, Kimberly, son, William, and a daughter, Katherine and they reside in Whitefish Bay, WI. His passions are travel, wine, and being a semiprofessional bartender.
