I recall the presentation vividly.
It was November 2007 and I was standing in front of a packed room at a really swank resort along the Mexican Riviera. Money Map Press was in its infancy and I was making my first public appearance as its chief investment strategist.
The markets were rocketing higher, the money was easy, and investors were greedy.
Until I got on stage.
I dropped a financial bomb of epic proportions by telling my audience two things: 1) the rally they were counting on was about to come screeching to a halt; and 2) they'd best shift their attention to harvesting profits.
You could have heard a pin drop.
I made my case as simply as I knew how… a "compressed range since 2005 shows [the] market ready to snap just like [it did] in early 2000."
