As the 2020 Election Ramps Up, Here's the One Chart Investors Need to See

By this time next year, we'll have elected a new president of the United States. Whether you elect a Democrat, Republican, heck, even a Martian from outer space, things are going to change... big time.

And what I'm going to tell you today isn't for everybody. It's for investors who want to make gobs of money because the truth of the matter is that profits trounce politics every time.

If you're one of millions of Americans who are worried about power changing hands - or not - you're not alone. People are beginning to feel the pressure of political, economic, and financial chaos based on the coming year, and the big changes we could see as a result of the upcoming election.

Right now, the focus is on the Democratic Party - namely, who will be the nominee to stand up to current U.S. President Donald Trump. Both Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren are polling as front-runners, and both of them have policies that will shake up the political, economic, and financial environment that Trump has cultivated.

A lot of people on both sides of the aisle view the election as a negative influence simply because we're in the middle of a market melt-up and any sort of change - whether it's the change of presidency a year from now or even the (slowly rising) threat of it - can tip the markets and send us into a full-scale recession.

It'll be full-blown chaos.

But the thing is, there's loads of money to be made here, and I won't let you miss the huge profit potential being created as voting comes down to the wire.

Let me explain...

The (Profitable) Tides of Change

Millions of investors are scared stiff when there's change in the air. Longing for the "good old days," they fear deviating from what they know because that means they'll have to change their ways.

But that's actually not true. The only change they'll have to make is in what they think they know. That's where the big profits are hiding - and where 99 out of 100 investors go off the rails.

I joke with audiences around the world that "We're all born with common sense. It's just 'bred' out of us as adults."

Chances are good that you already know this instinctively. I usually see a sea of heads nodding from stage when the irony of what I've just said dawns on them.

Again, you're not alone. What's more, there is a logical explanation.

Humans are much more prone to stop reaching for the stars as we get older because we've convinced ourselves that we "know better." We can't help it - it's simply human nature. It's in our DNA.

But what we want to be doing is flipping that around - at least when it comes to our money, anyway.

That's because history shows beyond any shadow of a doubt that the biggest opportunities are always created during periods of huge chaos. War, famine, political strife, financial crisis... it doesn't matter.

The key is learning to recognize that the angst that comes with each of these things is actually the signal you're looking for when it comes to lining up the huge profit potential you deserve, but which most investors will never have.

Fortunately, this won't be difficult. As I've shown my Total Wealth subscribers (you'll get the chance to subscribe in a minute), three principles are at work:

  • Capital is a creative force that's constantly flowing forward.
  • Money flows like water to where it's treated best.
  • Success constantly replaces failure, and there's expansion each time it does.

500 Years of Market History Can't Be Wrong

Now it's time for the fun part - and why I couldn't wait to share this with you.

I know what comes next based on 500 years of market history. And now, so will you: profits.

Not some of the time. Not part of the time. Every time.

The following chart comes from Kieron Nutbrown, who is the former head of global macro trading at First State Investments in London, and I want to share it with you because it goes a long way toward putting current conditions in perspective.

I totally understand that you probably don't have 500 years to wait... I get that a lot whenever I share this chart or one like it that brings a much larger perspective to the table.

More often than not, though, that's usually code speak for risk management, and that's an entirely different subject.

What I want you to understand is that fear of uncertainty and change always creates opportunity - which is why you've got to constantly look for it instead of trying to hide from it like many investors are at the moment.

That's why I've poured so much effort into researching what I call the "Unstoppable Trends." They're driven by trillions of dollars that will flow... no matter who wins or loses next November.

You can click right here to automatically and instantly subscribe to my Total Wealth research - they're absolutely free, and you'll learn everything you need to know to profit from the Unstoppable Trends: demographics; scarcity/allocation; medicine; energy; technology; and war, terrorism, and ugliness. Every dollar you'll make in the next 10 years will come from here.

Many of the best choices, including dozens of companies we've talked about here, have already scorched the broader markets simply because they make "must have" products and services we cannot live without.

What's more, they will continue to do so often moving directly against expectations everybody "knew" to be true. Only we'll know better.

Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN), VMWare Inc. (NYSE: VMW), and Medpace Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: MEDP), for example, have all turned in triple digits over the past three years - 202%, 262.90%, and 300%, respectively - even though the bet was that President Trump would eviscerate the markets across the board if elected. Every sector was at risk - defense, technology, medical, you name it.

But in the past three years, the markets have continued to rise. The S&P 500 is up 42.81%, the Nasdaq Composite rallied 61.82%, and the Dow Jones is up 39.32% - and that brings me to a point I often make: The markets have an upward bias.

In one short year, we could have a new president (or not), and either way, we will have a new set of opportunities, made all the more profitable by the simple fact that most people will be totally unprepared to deal with them.

And it's not just me saying so. You've got 500 years of market history on your side.
