For weeks now, the markets have fixated on one dramatic element after another in the ongoing, on-again, off-again trade negotiations between the United States and China.
Tweets from Trump, speeches from Xi, offhand comments from Mnuchin - you name it, investors have grabbed onto it for dear life to justify selling or buying.
Right now, investors are obsessed with something new...
Last week, the U.S. Commerce Department blacklisted Chinese giant Huawei, halting its ability to buy American-made parts and components. I'll get into the implications of this in a minute.
Now, some adventurous, bargain-hunting buyers were testing the waters yesterday, but for the most part, the indexes and one sector in particular have been taking a pounding behind this news.
So, unless we get a trade deal in a hurry (which we won't; no one is even talking right now), we can count on uncertainty, volatility, and this desperate, headline-driven action to continue.
You might be tempted to go to cash and get out of the way, but that would be an expensive mistake.
Because you can make some nice money on the up-down volatility that's going to be with us for a while yet.
I'm going to show you a dead simple way to cash in on it.
