What my Fortune Cookie Said

I’m on a date. Attractive lady. Thai restaurant. The meal is over.

Being an American Thai restaurant, they bring fortune cookies at the end. I never eat them or crack them open but the lady insisted I see what my fortune was.

So I ripped open the package and cracked open the cookie. I gently pulled out the small slip of paper and spread it flat on the table.

It said, “Consider gain and loss, but never be greedy and everything will be all right.”

I thought that was awesome!

Doesn’t that sum up trading?

How To Protect Yourself From The Coming Stock Market Drop

I’m looking for a drop in the stock market soon. (check out my free webinar next Monday by clicking here.)

You are probably long stocks right now. I know I am.

But I’m not afraid of a dip for two reasons.

First, I will protect my portfolio by buying drop insurance. This can be done a couple of different ways. I’ll be explaining how on my FREE webinar next Monday at 11 AM PT. You can register here now.

Second, I will sell short certain instruments or even buying things that will make money when the market goes down.

Most people are afraid of the market going down. I look at it as an opportunity to take profits on my current profitable long positions and as an opportunity to make money on the short side. Don’t know what “short side” means? Then register for the free webinar coming up next Monday.

We will be sending out a replay link if you miss the webinar but you have to register by  clicking here!

Five Reasons the Stock Market will Drop

I’m looking for the stock market to drop soon. Here’s why in a nutshell:

1. Seasonally, September is the worst month and August is no prize.

2. We haven’t had a 5% correction in over a year. That is an extraordinary stat. The market normally has at least one 10% correction each year.

3. The market is complacent. Volatility is very low. People are falling asleep. Of course, that means that the market is about to become more volatile and I think the volatility will be to the downside.

4. Sentiment is very very bullish. Surveys show that market participants are overly bullish. If everyone is bullish, who is left to buy?

5. Momentum is waning. Momentum indicators are getting weaker which usually means that the market is about to dive.

I’ve put together a free webinar next Monday at 11 am PT on Will the Stock Market Collapse?

I will go into detail on the five points above plus much much more analysis.

Most importantly, I’ll show you how to hedge your existing portfolio and how to make money in the dip.

Why Buy Gold Now

Gold has been up strong lately and I believe it will go even higher. Here’s why:

This is the seasonally best period of the year for gold. Gold has rallied over 85% of the last 30 years in the month of August. Of course, it could go down but the odds are strongly in our favor.

The dollar is collapsing. Gold is really a type of currency. For centuries, it was currency. Technically it is just a metal but people around the world flock to gold when other currencies are going down. It is a hedge against governments inflating and destroying their own currency.

As the dollar collapses, more money will flow into gold.

But gold is also in a bull market in other currencies so that will also support gold.

Commodity prices are in a bull market and that will translate into higher inflation down the road. Commodity prices tend to be a leading indicator of inflation. Inflation is just another way of saying that the government is degrading the currency. As discussed above gold is a hedge against governments degrading their currency.

I did a live webinar yesterday where I went into detail on my outlook for gold.

This Famous Indicator Is Flashing A Major Sell Signal

Interesting Image

The oldest and best known trading method is flashing a major bear signal.

The Dow Theory was formulated over 100 years ago by Charles Dow. Basically, it says that industrial and transportation stocks should move in tandem. They should both go up and down at about the same time.

But they aren’t now.

The chart shows the Dow making new highs while the Transports are plunging. This massive divergence is a clear signal that the stock market will soon drop.

I believe this is an opportunity for us to make money.

But I also think you need to protect yourself from this drop!

I’ve put together a free webinar for August 7 at 11 am PT to show you:

  •  1. What I think is going to happen in the stock market.
  • 2. Why I think it will happen
  • 3. How you can protect yourself from the drop
  • 4. How you can make money from the drop

I will have a replay available but you have to register now to get the replay notice. Click here to register.

Why do I sell Trading Education?

I recently sent out a email for people to sign up for free training and there was pitch at the end of the four days of education for a great course we offer called How To Quit Your Job Trading Stocks And Options.

Jim wrote back, “If you have done so well, why are you trying to sell training? Shouldn’t you be concentrating on trading?”

Here’s what I wrote back: “First, I trade every day! Subscriber to my services see my actual trades every single day. But that only takes a few minutes every day.

Second, No! I shouldn’t concentrate on trading only! I started this company 10 years ago to share my knowledge so people could also gain financial freedom. I actually lose money on this business!”

But I thought I would go into detail for you, valued readers.

I traded for big institutions for decades but quit all that about 15 years ago. I had enough of big companies. I made a lot of money, learned a lot, and won a lot of awards.

But I really felt that I had taken that career as far as it could go. I had been the Chief Investment Officer of  mutual fund company and treasurer of a Swiss bank. I mean, there are any higher job titles in the trading business.

So I became semi-retired. I went all around the world. I moved to two places in Europe. I moved to Singapore.

Of course, I traded my own account and even some customer accounts during this time period.

But something was bugging me.

I had worked for massive financial institutions. Household names. But do you think they were focused on helping their customers make money trading? Of course not.

This bugged me.

I looked all over the world and saw that the average person was in financial desperate straights. They didn’t have enough money for retirement. And so on.

So I decided to teach people the deep knowledge that I have. I decided to share what I know with people who really need it. So I started an education business.

And I’ve been teaching now for 10 years!

I love it! I truly do.

I don’t do it for the money. I actually lose money on this business. I have to subsidize it every year.

Jim, I’m not totally motivated by money. I have other values.

So I continue to teach. Because I love it and because people need it.
