Why the First Bitcoin ETF Could Double the Price of Bitcoin

When the first Bitcoin ETF lands – an event that could happen any day now – it will have a dramatic impact on the price of Bitcoin.

The arrival of the first Bitcoin ETF will be a powerful Bitcoin price catalyst because it will mimic other commodity-based ETFs, particularly those based on gold and silver.

Those ETFs were primary factors in the steep rise in gold and silver prices a decade ago.

Here's why a Bitcoin ETF will have the same effect...

How to Buy the Best Tech Stocks in 2016 at a Fraction of the Cost

The best tech stocks in 2016 are really expensive.

In fact, it could cost $800 to own just one share of some of the top tech companies, and that doesn't include fees.

But we discovered how investors can profit from the booming industry for a fraction of the cost. Here's everything you need to know...

How to Profit on This $2 Trillion Tech Trend

We're in the midst of a very profitable moment for dealmaking, especially in the technology sector. The three hottest M&A transactions of the past three months were worth $33.8 billion – a fraction of the $2 trillion in deals announced this year.

Companies like Microsoft and Verizon are going out and buying firms like Yahoo!, Fleetmatics, and LinkedIn because they offer the irresistible promise of massive growth without the long, drawn-out process (and even higher price tag) of R&D, where there are no guarantees of success.

So you can see why deals are appealing to these huge, cash-flush companies.

But these deals are a great thing for investors, too. Deals can be some of the biggest profit catalysts on the market, in many cases doubling investors' money as the ink dries.

Then again, there are some unique challenges for investors looking to play these profitable special events: Pinpointing when those deals will happen – and who will be doing the buying – is a must.

You don't need to be able to tell the future, though – I'm going to tell you how you can make an "end run" around that particular challenge.

All you have to do is sit back and bank the profits...

How to Use the U.S. Economy to Pinpoint Your Next Trade

Last week the U.S. Federal Reserve decided against raising interest rates four times this year, opting for just two hikes instead.

Market Crash

Get Protection and Profits in 2016 with This Easy ETF Strategy

There's no doubt 2015 was one of the most volatile years in recent history.

But here's the thing… I believe 2016 could be even rougher.

We haven't even seen the sell-off I'm predicting yet; it's likely to make the plunge we saw on Aug. 24, 2015, look like a kiddie ride.

Just as there's nothing solid or healthy underpinning the stock market gains we're seeing now, there will be nothing to catch investors who aren't prepared to trade this volatility – just a long, deep drop.

There's no bottom in sight, but the good news is there's one easy way to trade just about everything the market is likely to throw at you this year.

Here's what we should do...

The Smart, Easy Way to Turn a Market Sell-Off into an "Extreme Profit" Opportunity

Most investors look at the stock market in a very conventional way: Bull markets are good. Bear markets are bad. You make money when stocks rise. You lose money when they fall.

As a tech investor friend of mine said, that's a "binary" view of the financial markets. With a perspective like that, you can't help but be frightened of what's coming just around the corner.

But I'm different. I'm a trader. And I believe there's always a place to make money, so I look for opportunities – wherever they are.

It's a lot easier than you think, and the windfall will be huge.

And today I'm going to show you exactly how to do it...
