Man, what a week, right?
We all watched the world markets take a pretty bad beating. The Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged a horrific 635 points Monday and another 520 points on Wednesday, taking the blue-chip index to a level it hasn't seen since last September.
Markets in Europe and Asia tumbled as well, leaving investors shell-shocked.
It reminds me of how the markets reacted after the 2008 collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. (PINK: LEHMQ).
Investors panicked. They dumped nearly everything. Stocks fell 29% in three months. Commodities fell an incredible 47% that autumn.
At the time, you couldn't turn on even the local news without hearing something negative about the markets.
But I'll let you in on a secret: I loved every minute of it.
I made a nice 52% profit in my personal forex account that fall, all thanks to the increased volatility in the markets.
Yes, the very thing that sunk stock and commodity prices caused my forex trades to soar higher and faster than ever.
It wasn't an isolated event, either. There are plenty of ways you can profit from volatile swings in the stock markets with foreign currencies.
Take now, for instance. As of this week, volatility has emerged in the markets with a vengeance. But that's exactly the kind of volatility that rewards traders. In just a moment, I'm going to show you how to use this volatility to your advantage.
