Recession fears are a type of sentiment that has a unique impact on the market, and like a lot of emotion-driven phenomena in investing, that impact doesn't always make a whole lot of logical sense.
Retail, for example, is one category that often sees fast drops when recession features prominently in news headlines. And on one level that makes sense - economic slowdown means people are likely to buy less stuff.
But investors seem to forget that retail is a channel not just to luxury goods, but also to things we need, whether it's grocery staples or raw materials for housing and home maintenance projects.
The same thing is happening right now with commodities. All the things we need to survive, from grains and beans to iron and copper, are getting hit in the markets due to recession fears.
But demand for these items will not wane during a recession, because they're necessary. And that simple truth is a guiding light for investors looking to profit as things slow down.
So, companies with solid financials, in-demand products, and stocks that could double or triple within the next few years, like the stock I am recommending today, are now on sale. Think: 41% off a mining stock once worth close to $100 per share.
This is an opportunity we can't pass up, so watch today's video to learn how to take advantage of dipping prices...
Folks, the new normal is already here, and in this new world order, anyone who doesn't have $1 million in their retirement account is going to be left holding the bag.
Investors need to be looking for strategies to help them get through these crises with their wealth intact.
That's why my colleague, Tim Melvin, and I have developed a survival strategy that will not only get you through the crush of inflation and supply chain chaos, but also has the potential to quadruple your money over the next five years.
The info on our strategy is 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.
