Take a look:

Steve Grasso
"Name of the game is making money, not being right."

Tim Seymour
"Emerging Markets can decouple and be driven by domestic growth."

Guy Adami
"Crowded trades like bullish gold and weak dollar can stay crowded for a long time."

But don’t just read our version of CliffsNotes. Learn the entire lesson first hand. Watch the video now!
