    best stocks for options

    The biggest market drop in recorded history on Monday... a wild end-of-day plummet on Tuesday... a huge up day on Wednesday... and more bullish action today?

    Talk about opportunity!

    Right now, the only real barrier to trading profits is a stock that doesn't move.

    So in times like this, I like to use a really great tool that identifies what I call my "Top Movers" - the stocks and ETFs that have had the biggest percent moves and best correlation to the market.

    Then I can focus on finding the best stock with the best option trade and the best potential to double in value on the smallest move in the stock.

    That's a lot of "bests."

    This is a really simple tool, and I know you'll like it.

As much as it pains me to contribute to the thousands of articles mentioning Donald Trump, this one is different...

It's different because I'm going to show you exactly how you can cash in on a concrete pattern, going back three-quarters of a century, which appears across the markets during the "election cycle," or the last two years of every American presidency.

No matter what "The Donald" says or does, no matter who wins, this event has offered savvy investors clockwork profits, and it will do the same for us, too, so it's important to start getting ready now.

How We'll Profit as Volatility Shakes Out the "Weak Money"

stock market volatility

After seven down days in a row, the markets roared back Monday and appeared to erase last week's sharp declines.

Now, Monday's action looked impressive by any measure... but the "green" chart I'm about to show you told me that we were looking at something other than the start of a sustainable rally.

And just as I thought, the markets headed lower again yesterday.

I'm not worried, though - and you shouldn't be either. Volatility like we're seeing now means we're looking at much bigger potential gains...

Do This… And Gain Control of Your Financial Destiny

investing tips

My work puts me in touch with all kinds of investors, from beginners to seasoned pros.

And it's made me realize that many investors, particularly those who are new to the stock market, are totally unaware that there are different order types - let alone the advantages that come from using them. So they simply call up their broker and tell him that they want to buy a given stock, bond, or ETF.

There's a problem with that. Unless you name a specific price, you're effectively giving your broker permission to fill your order at any price. Of course, you're guaranteed to get filled as long as there's trading activity - meaning buyers and sellers making a market.

And best of all, it puts you in control...

How to Invest in the New Energy Balance

higher oil prices

As we await the next chapter in the ongoing Greek debt mess, something of interest is happening right here in the U.S.

For the first time in my memory (which goes back more than four decades in this business), the energy market's normal supply-and-demand trade-off has been fundamentally altered.

As I have explained on several occasions in Oil & Energy Investor, overleverage will hamper some U.S. producers, while the inability to replace volume extracted due to the expenses incurred exceeding the wellhead profits will cause significant problems for others.

Here's where the best opportunities are going to arise...

In a moment I'm going to show you a chart for EOG Resources.

As I looked at the chart for this oil and natural gas development company, and positioned myself for a possible trade, an old song happened to come on the radio. It's a catchy tune that my friends and I used to "try" to dance along with.

Country US Illinois

Detroit and Chicago couldn't seem to be more different. The former is a manufacturing wasteland, except for the resilience of the Big Three, and it suffers from massive demographic and economic problems.

Chicago, by contrast, is the home of the world's largest futures and options exchanges and it is the Midwest's center for trade and entrepreneurship...
