The tech-centric Nasdaq Composite Index hit a new all-time high on July 20. It was the Nasdaq's 10th straight winning session.
The rest of the market is doing well, too. Last week marked the 27th new high for the S&P 500 this year, making 2017 one of the index's best years in decades.
This historic bull market is now entering its ninth year.
And so I know that many of you have been holding onto your cash and hoping for a sell-off to lower prices.
You're not alone. The Wall Street Journal reports that fund managers have increased their cash holdings by 10% this month to 4.9% of assets.
I understand that impulse.
But I hope you're not so inclined.
Because if you've sat out the year so far, you've left a lot of money on the table.
You know that now.
I'm here to tell you today that it's still not too late to make your move.
But I know that will take a "gut check."
That's why I'm showing you three tools that will make that "gut check" easier.
They'll keep you in the market – and give you the confidence you need to keep making big gains with tech stocks…
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I can't say it often enough – the road to wealth is paved by tech. And I can prove it…
Since the bull market began on March 9, 2009, the Nasdaq is up 346%. That's more than 50% better than the S&P 500's return over the period.
And it's all because of the new "convergence economy" we've been talking about here for some time now. These days, every business is a tech business, meaning the sector will beat the overall market for years to come.
Having said that, however, it bears noting that no stock, sector, or market rises in a straight line forever. Sooner or later, the market will lose steam.
Let me be clear. I see plenty of upside ahead through the end of 2017. And it bears repeating this is not the time to horde cash and hope for better prices.
Instead, you want to be in tech stocks. And if you use these three Gut Check Tools, you can invest with confidence – and protect your market-crushing gains.
Take a look…
Gut Check Tool No. 1: Take "Free Trades"
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of this tool. Then again, it's one I use all the time in my members-only services, including Nova-X Report.
With this one savvy method, you can end up owning shares of a stock – or a whole portfolio for that matter – for free.
Here's how it works. When a stock doubles in value, you sell half of your holdings. By doing so, you get out all of your original capital. After that, you're playing on the house's money.
Take the case of a fast-moving display tech stock I recommended to Nova-X readers in May 2016. Almost a year to the day later, we sold half for roughly 106% earnings.
We did even better with a biotech stock I recommended to Radical Technology Profits members in October 2016. Last month, we sold half for gains of roughly 111% in roughly eight months.
The second half of that trade is now up 134% – and we're locking in profits with the savvy use of Gut Check Tool No. 3…
