How I Predicted the Global Market Sell-Off

dow jones today

Making millions in the stock market is simple - all you have to do is predict its direction. Easier said than done, right? Not necessarily.

While most of Wall Street and the world didn't see this global market sell-off coming, I did.

Here's how I made those predictions - and a ton of money being on the right side of different markets... and how you can, too.

These Two Words Explain All You Need to Know About the Stock Market Sell-Off

Understanding this stock market sell-off may sound little more than academic at this point. Who cares why something happened? You want to know what to do now.

But you can't go on the offensive - you can't make the right moves - without first understanding the sell-off.

And to understand its most basic elements, you really only need to know two words. So, let's get cracking...

Dow Jones Industrial Average Plunges Again: What to Do Next

Dow Jones Industrial Average

At times like the present, one question inevitably rises to the very top of the heap... what do I do next? Sadly, millions of investors will never know.

For them, the markets are like a one-way street to financial hell. Lacking any sort of cohesive plan, they lurch from one "investment" to another only to doom themselves to sub-par returns.

Fortunately, you're not among them. You're here, and that gives you a tremendous advantage, especially on days like today, when the Dow Jones Industrial Average plummets.

So let's tackle that question with an answer that is as powerful as it is simple. And, while we're at it, let's highlight a recommendation that's uniquely suited for today's chaotic markets...

Special Alert: One Trade for a Market Sell-Off

So here we are, heading back to 18,000 on the Dow Jones Industrial Average after dipping below the 15,500 mark back in August, a 2,500 point move up.

There's a good chance you're wondering how to trade the market at these levels. I'm going to tell you.

If I'm wrong and there's no market sell-off, we lose a little money. If I'm right, you'll make a boatload of dough.

Here's my thinking...

WARNING: Record Global Sell-Off of U.S. Debt Could Trigger Economic Collapse

Foreign governments buy U.S. debt because of its status as the world’s reserve currency – the American economy has long been viewed as a safe place to invest.

But that’s all changing now – events that could spark a U.S. economic collapse are already underway…

The Wall Street Journal revealed this week that China – the largest holder of U.S. investments – is ridding itself of its U.S. investments at the fastest rate in history. Central banks in China, Russia, Brazil, and Taiwan are selling U.S. government bonds at such a pace that it’s caused the most dramatic shift in the $12.8 trillion Treasury market since the 2008-2009 financial crisis.

Foreign central bankers’ massive offloading of U.S. debt sends a dangerous signal.

Here’s why…

The Smart, Easy Way to Turn a Market Sell-Off into an "Extreme Profit" Opportunity

super crash

Most investors look at the stock market in a very conventional way: Bull markets are good. Bear markets are bad. You make money when stocks rise. You lose money when they fall.

As a tech investor friend of mine said, that's a "binary" view of the financial markets. With a perspective like that, you can't help but be frightened of what's coming just around the corner.

But I'm different. I'm a trader. And I believe there's always a place to make money, so I look for opportunities - wherever they are.

It's a lot easier than you think, and the windfall will be huge.

And today I'm going to show you exactly how to do it...

ETF Black Magic: What's Really in the Hat?


The first ETF debuted back in 1993. ETFs have displaced regular mutual funds as the investment of choice: The amount of money ETFs hold has skyrocketed more than 2,000% - compared with a paltry 120% for regular funds.

ETFs trade all day like stocks - making them "better" than mutual funds. ETFs are modern-day magical trading tools.

But if you know anything about magic, you know there are times where the trick goes awry...

U.S. Stock Market Sell-off 2015: Triggers to Watch For and How to Prepare

A U.S. stock market sell-off in August saw the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunge 10.36% (1,810 points) in 10 days. On Aug. 24 alone, the DJIA fell a whopping 1,000 points before recovering.

The truth is that U.S. markets face even more headwinds the rest of 2015. For example, a Federal Reserve rate hike, a continual slowdown of China's economic growth, and huge, unchecked debts festering in Europe, just to name a few.

Before You "Buy the Dip," Answer This One Question

august sell off dip

Having experienced their first true stock market correction in four years - and the potential beginnings of a rebound in the three weeks since - investors are naturally asking whether now is a good time to buy stocks ahead of the Fed meeting tomorrow.

You can see why it might be attractive to "buy the dip."

If you really want to buy stocks right now, I've got one question for you first...

Why Some ETFs Led the Markets Down Last Week

Of all the scary things that happened last Monday when the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell more than 1,000 points, nothing was scarier than what happened with exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

They crashed and exacerbated the market sell-off. They're not all a bad risk, and there are some we like to recommend that are quite safe - even essential - during a market reversal.

Investors need to understand exactly what it is they're holding. But this opens a can of worms Wall Street would rather leave shut tight, because there's a danger to investors from some of these.

Here's the truth...
