When you look back over the history of the market, there have been times when making money was like taking money from a baby. The past decade was one of those periods.
From the market bottom in 2009 to now, the S&P 500 is up around 500%.
Of course, the greatest stock market run of all time has to end at some point. Right?
The fear mongers were certainly beating their drums loudly as we entered 2020 — calling for lower growth, lower earnings and lower stock returns.
If you recall back in late 2018, many were doing the same and feeling vindicated as the S&P 500 cratered 16% in less than a month.
At the time, I stood up to the bears, calling the late 2018 sell-off the “mother of all pullbacks” and predicting it would be one of the best buying opportunities of the decade. And history certainly proved me right!
Today, we sit more than 40% above the late 2018 lows, as the major indices continue to push to new highs. And that’s despite the ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China, despite downgraded revenue projections coming out weekly and despite the coronavirus outbreak.
But in the face of all the gloomy forecasts, it’s hard not to wonder when the good times will end. And if you’re like most traders, you probably assume you have three choices.
Choice #1: Trust the bears and short the market
If you’re concerned about an upcoming market sell-off, this is probably a tempting option. But with stocks making new high after new high, shorts are getting burned at a rate higher than ever.
Choice #2: Sit on the sidelines
Some people might be thinking that rather than risk putting money to work at these levels or going short, their safest bet is to just wait it out and see what happens.
Well, you need only look at the chart of the S&P 500 above to see what a costly mistake that can be.
Beyond just missing out on potential stock market gains, you’re actually paying a premium to keep your money “safe” in the form of less purchasing power due to rising inflation rates. A premium of around 1.8% to put a number on it.
Choice #3: Join the bulls and ride the S&P
Thus far, this is the most reasonable choice… but it’s still not the best route. Hear me out.
I believe we’re currently in a “blow-off” period before the final bubble where things really get crazy.
In fact, we’re heading into a market overdrive period that could recapture the last 10 years of profits all in a few months.
By investing just in the S&P 500, you’ll be cutting yourself short… hundreds of thousands of dollars short.
If you invested in the S&P 500 10 years ago from today, you would be up 211%.
When I told people about the “mother of all pullbacks” in late 2018, I was right but few people took action. Fewer still used the specific strategy I outlined for taking advantage of that market phase.
But those who did were rewarded. I’m talking about almost 200% whole account growth in a matter of weeks — compared to 10 years. And they were rewarded because they used the right strategy at the right time.
I believe this next series of market phases will dwarf what my team did during the mother of all pullbacks. That’s why I’ve created a roadmap that could completely change their financial situation.
It’s called the Diamond Roadmap.
In short, it combines the next few phases with strategies that are built to FEAST on each one:
*A way to catch the biggest stock spikes before they happen
*An automated tool to follow institutional investment capital
*A proprietary alert to trigger profits when there’s a correction
If you want to prepare for what’s next, you can get my Roadmap here.
I’m not saying this to worry you, but you should be aware of where the market is… deep into one of the longest bull runs we’ve ever seen.
It will come to an end, and when it does… I want you to be ready.
It’s an opportunity for us… and I think we can make more money in the next few months than most investors make in a decade.
