A month ago, we had witnessed a banking debacle. 2 big US banks and 1 mega Swiss bank went under.
That sparked a selling frenzy and the share price of banks slid.
While the stock of most banks are still struggling, the stock of Citigroup is showing some promise. Therefore, shall we analyze Citigroup’s shares and find out if it’s a good idea to position trade them?
Brief History of Citigroup
Founded in 1811, Citigroup started off as a bank.
Through the years, Citigroup had experienced many tough moments, and it managed to survive them all.
It has also seen its fair share of success by being the largest bank in the US in 1895, the first contributor to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 1913, and more.
Via mergers and acquisitions, Citigroup rose to the top, ranking one of the top banks in the world.
Business Model and Financials
Has Citigroup been financially strong and healthy?
Let’s have a quick look at its total revenue (blue bars).
Citigroup’s total revenue has been growing every year, with 2020 and 2021 as the exception.
This is reassuring.
The next metric you’ll want to look at is its net income that’s depicted by the red bar.
Citigroup’s net income has been fluctuating significantly, dipping into negative numbers in 2017.
It looks like Citigroup isn’t that financially strong.
Should you be worried as a position trader, especially after the banking saga?
Let’s have a look at its price chart for clues.

If you’re struggling to make money from the market, just do this ONE thing in 2023:
If you’re like most people, you probably think that building a profitable side income stream from the stock market is something that is extremely difficult to achieve, and time-consuming as well.
And you probably know that one friend or relative who has lost a lot of hard-earned money to the market despite being ‘experienced’.
And especially since 2022 was a time when we saw many people in the red, bag-holding 20-80% losses…
It’s understandable to see why most people have such a grudge towards the idea of profiting from the market.
But what if I told you that amongst the many skills required to be profitable in trading…
There is one simple skill that will never make you feel that making money in the stock market is difficult ever again?
A skill that, if mastered, can dramatically increase your chances of success in the stock market.
I’m talking about the skill of identifying the right strong stocks.
If you have heard of this before but still do not have it figured out yet, let today be the day you get it right.
You see, the #1 problem with most ‘experienced’ traders who just can’t seem to make money consistently from the market despite having consumed tons of learning resources & materials is not because there is a problem with their strategies.
It’s because unbeknownst to them, they are constantly buying the WRONG stocks.
Stocks that have very bad set-ups, price movement, and in general just a low probability of moving in the direction you wish for.
In fact, this process of picking the right stocks is a crucial step that most people don’t even think about.
Ask yourself this, what is your current process for knowing what stocks to buy?
Companies that you like such as TSLA, META, AAPL etc..?
Stocks that your friends tell you to buy?
Stocks that you read about in financial news, blogs or Youtube videos?
Or even stocks that you spend hours reading up their financial reports and doing fundamental analysis?
If you have done any one of the above, you are making a dangerous mistake and that has to change.
Knowing how to pick strong stocks with the highest profit potential using a proper proven strategy is half the battle won.
It instantly eliminates any potential ‘bad characteristics’ of the stock and significantly increases your chances of being right in the trade.
Once you know how to pick strong, potential stocks, whatever comes after (knowing when to buy or sell) becomes a breeze and you can start expecting to see real, consistent results.
That’s how exactly I was able to still execute 20-40% and higher trades last year when the entire market was down.
So if you think profitable trading is difficult, think again.
I’ve trained thousands of students who started off with complete 0 experience and whose portfolio results are now lightyears ahead of their peers who started learning years before them.
That’s the power of mastering this very simple skill of identifying the right strong stocks.
It literally gives you the weapon to be able to profit in all sorts of market conditions, because opportunities are ALWAYS in the market. It’s all about knowing how to find them!
I hope you’ve learnt this very important lesson today, but more importantly, take action in pursuing the mastery of this skill.
I have an upcoming free LIVE training demonstrating my exact process on how I find strong stocks in less than 15 minutes using a very simple strategy.
What I will be revealing is a tested and proven counter-intuitive approach that you’ve probably never seen before, and it’s something you can apply almost immediately.
So if you’re excited to cut through the B.S and master the intricate skill of profitable trading…
P.S You can also get to ask me any stocks you are currently thinking of buying and I’ll show you if it’s a strong stock and whether the odds are stacked in your favour or not!
