My Favorite Trading Strategy for the "Super Crash"

prices going down

A lot of folks - especially individual investors - don't like to bet on stocks that are going down. That's understandable. It doesn't feel as good to bet against something.

But it would be prudent for investors to hedge their gains of the last five years; trees don't grow to the sky, especially when their roots are rotting.

This could help you do very well as stocks dive lower. Especially if you know how to use this trading strategy...

Morgan Stanley Analysts Join Us on the GoPro Stock Bandwagon

Go pro

On Tuesday, Morgan Stanley analysts cut their target price for GoPro stock. Millions of investors were surprised, and the stock got shellacked.

GoPro is a worse value trap now than ever, and any investor who gets sucked in now is playing with fire.

I know the temptation is to buy, but hold your ground. The company has always been on the "cusp of something great," and it's never delivered.

Most investors focus exclusively on buying stocks in an attempt to capture huge returns. That's too bad, because it means they restrict themselves to half the opportunities available to them.

I bring this up because markets move up AND down, which means there is plenty of profit potential to be had in both directions.

George Soros, for instance, is reported to have made $1 billion in a single trade that famously almost broke the Bank of England in 1992.

John Paulson made billions from the housing crisis when it hit by betting against the grain.

Doug Kass of Seabreeze Partners is famous for bucking conventional wisdom on seemingly mighty companies and laughing all the way to the bank.

That's why shorting is one of the first tactics I shared with you in my Total Wealth publication.

Obviously, shorting stocks isn't for everybody - it takes a lot of guts and more than a little conviction to do it profitably. Not to mention a whole lot of discipline. But done right, it can really boost your profits.
