The media has finally accepted something I've been saying all along: We are in bear market territory.
Hard selling - triggered by horrid consumer sentiment and last week's "surprise" news that inflation had not only not cooled, but was running at 40-year highs - pushed the S&P 500 into "official" bear market territory. Stocks, bonds, and the rest are all getting hammered.
It's a bloodbath out there, alright, and to rub salt in the wound, the Fed is likely to announce a 50-basis-point rate hike today, and it's not out of the question they'll opt for a 0.75% bump.
But here's the good news, for us: Making money off of rising interest rates is easier than it's ever been, thanks to the existence of inverse leveraged ETFs - basically, funds that are designed to rise in value as their targeted assets tumble. There's much less risk involved than trying to short a stock, and you can often get in with a small investment.
It's a play I've made many times before, most recently for my Hyperdrive Portfolio subscribers. We closed out a trade in May, and folks following along got a crack at an 800% gain.
That's right - eight hundred percent.
And I'm ready to do it again.
Watch today's video to learn how we did it and how you can reap triple-digit gains using the same technique...
Most investors haven't even grasped this yet, but there's a huge capital shift coming that's going to change the fabric of American life. It's going to be as disruptive as when Apple introduced the iPhone, or when Netflix changed the way we watch television.
Every time shifts like these have happened, those on the wrong side of them ended up getting crushed. But those on the right side? They made life-changing fortunes.
I've been calling market trends for literally decades now, and subscribers to my Hyperdrive Portfolio service are up 19% while the rest of the market is down. There are three things you can do right now to secure the best potential profits, even in this crumbling market.

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.
