Bear Market 2020: 3 Steps to Protect Your Investments Now

Just five minutes into trading this morning (Monday), the S&P 500 tanked 7%.

The sudden drop prompted a 15-minute trading halt.

With today's drop, we're very close to hitting a bear market in 2020.

A "bear market" is defined as a 20% drop from market highs. The bear market level for the S&P 500 is near 2,700 points.

At today's lows, the S&P 500 hit 2,752.

The most important thing to remember right now is not to panic.

Today, we'll show you how to protect your money from this unprecedented situation.


The Coronavirus Penny Stock to Buy as Fear Drives the Market

There aren't many sectors you could predict will go up on coronavirus fears.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average continues to fall despite the U.S. Federal Reserve cutting rates by 50 basis points.

Travel is down, and oil has plummeted to a four-year low of $27 per barrel.

Investors who aren't fleeing to gold and other safe havens might choose stocks in companies developing coronavirus vaccines.

Or maybe you found a company that makes respirators and surgical face masks.

But those are not your only options in a coronavirus outbreak.


Did the Stock Market Crash?

Stocks fell so fast today – 7% in less than an hour after markets opened – trading was halted for 15 minutes.

To many outside observers, that might look like the stock market crashed.

Of course, if you've watched your 401(k) and retirement accounts lose 17% of their value in a matter of days you don't care what the experts call it.

What you do next is the most important factor here, not whether this is officially a stock market crash or not.

We know this is a time of uncertainty.

Watching your money evaporate is nauseating.

Fortunately, you are in control.

Here are three things you can do right now to protect yourself and set up your portfolio for the rebound...

The Most Successful Wealth-Building Move of All Time

Today, our Bill Patalon is going to talk about something he calls the "Paradox of Wealth." And it applies perfectly to the "Infection Correction" – the term he coined for the coronavirus-fueled selloff that's wiped away trillions in shareholder wealth over the last few weeks. And it'll likely get worse before it gets better. But as we've been telling you, that's not a reason to panic. Just the opposite, in fact – thanks to the Paradox of Wealth – because big selloffs can be your biggest long-term wealth-building opportunities. What will set you apart from the masses is making deliberate moves in times like these that will be best for the long run.

That's why Bill's also sharing the tale of an investor who turned one of the worst periods in modern history into one of the smartest wealth-building moves of all time...

The Impact of COVID-19 on Markets: Your Roadmap Through the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

The global spread of the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, officially named COVID-19 by the World Health Organization (WHO), is already impacting economies, markets, and stocks. Last week, Shah brought you part one of his series on how this new coronavirus outbreak is affecting global markets and, ultimately, your money. Then the market moved more than 4,500 points in five days. Today, he's walking you through what's ahead – the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Investors need a comprehensive roadmap to navigate each of the potential pathways the virus could take markets down, because it's going to take them down all three roads...

Penny Stocks to Buy During the Coronavirus Sell-Off

The ongoing sell-off across the markets has many investors running for the hills.

But the recent downturn has pulled a number of high-upside stocks with potential to rally to all-time highs.

Among the stocks that offer tremendous upside are penny stocks.

Today's penny stocks to buy – currently priced under $6 per share – give investors low-risk, high-return potential that requires little capital to get started.


Grab Profits in Five Days or Less with These Rapid-Fire Trades

To call the markets "volatile" right now would be an understatement.

They're more like the "Batman" roller coaster at Six Flags – a 50-mile-per-hour free-fly ride that's been known to make riders black out due to its sheer speed on inverted loops.

After reaching an all-time high of 3,393.52 on Feb. 19, investors blinked – and boom, the S&P 500 was down a whopping 18% in just seven trading days.

But then, the ride took a quick swing back up with an 8% bounce on March 2.

Following that, Wednesday, March 4, saw a 4% jump after Joe Biden's Super Tuesday win – only to have the major indexes open 2% lower the next day.

Feels like the fast ups and downs of a roller coaster, right? The kind that makes your stomach squirm. And the ride is far from over…

On March 3, the U.S. Federal Reserve slashed interest rates by 50 basis points, its largest cut since the 2008 financial crisis. The simple fact that the Fed feels the need to cut rates at all means there's only more volatility to come.

But while most investors suffer from the market's whiplash, those "in the know" are enjoying the ride, snagging fast profits right under their noses.

In fact, some of my readers just had the chance to score a 50% profit in three days.

How to Build a Bulletproof Buy List

This week, over the span of just 24 hours, we saw a market rally of nearly 1,170 points followed by a sharp decline of 900.

The market moved back and forth a total of 3,253 points in just the first three days of the week. Treasury yields sank to record lows as these wild swings continued.

And you better hang on to your hats because this market whipsawing isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

Now, if you were following along last week, I told you to make sure you keep those trailing stops nice and tight. I do realize that some of you are all stopped out and wondering, "What's next?"

Or, more specifically, "Is it time to buy?" and "What do I buy?"

While I believe that most stocks are a bit too risky and volatile to buy right now, I am getting my wish list ready. It's growing by the minute.
