One of the unique features of the rally has been the millions of new retail investors out there, using apps to trade and invest, even in fractional shares. More than a few times, these folks have led the market, and they've never been shy about taking Wall Street to the mat.
I think it's a great thing, frankly.
Here's the thing – for as many new investors and traders that have come into the market, there are millions more on the sidelines, just waiting to take that first step and put some skin in the game.

We're going to cover it all today, like which stocks to own and how many of them. We'll talk about how many open positions to have, too.
I'll show you the best way to use exchange-traded funds (ETFs) – and not just because they're insanely popular, but because I think 90% of investors are using them incorrectly.
And I'm even going to name three stocks all of Wall Street (and plenty of investors) love right now. The trouble is they're like pure poison.
Look, the stock market is hands-down the way to quickly build wealth these days. The truth is there's never a bad time to be in the market, but the fact that the markets are downso sharply over the past week is really just the engraving on the invitation.
Here's what you need to know…
I realize I just named a ton of stocks in that video, but believe it or not, I'm not through yet. I've saved the best for last.
I'm recommending five stocks that I'm projecting could cause a $353 billion "Hyperdrive" ripple over the next 18 months or so. When you're talking about a capital wave of that size, well, needless to say, the profit potential could be astronomical. I'll name three reasons why each stock is an absolute buy right here.
About the Author
Shah Gilani boasts a financial pedigree unlike any other. He ran his first hedge fund in 1982 from his seat on the floor of the Chicago Board of Options Exchange. When options on the Standard & Poor's 100 began trading on March 11, 1983, Shah worked in "the pit" as a market maker.
The work he did laid the foundation for what would later become the VIX - to this day one of the most widely used indicators worldwide. After leaving Chicago to run the futures and options division of the British banking giant Lloyd's TSB, Shah moved up to Roosevelt & Cross Inc., an old-line New York boutique firm. There he originated and ran a packaged fixed-income trading desk, and established that company's "listed" and OTC trading desks.
Shah founded a second hedge fund in 1999, which he ran until 2003.
Shah's vast network of contacts includes the biggest players on Wall Street and in international finance. These contacts give him the real story - when others only get what the investment banks want them to see.
Today, as editor of Hyperdrive Portfolio, Shah presents his legion of subscribers with massive profit opportunities that result from paradigm shifts in the way we work, play, and live.
Shah is a frequent guest on CNBC, Forbes, and MarketWatch, and you can catch him every week on Fox Business's Varney & Co.
