The Single Most Important (and Profitable) Move You Can Make Today

Keith Fitz-Gerald Aug 16, 2019

My email exploded Wednesday morning when the yield curve inverted and, not surprisingly, the major market averages tanked. So did our phone lines, our chat boards, and our mailbag for that matter.

News headlines, of course, didn’t help:

… Bond markets are sending one big global recession warning (CNBC)

… Yield curves invert in US, UK as “Doom and Gloom” spreads (Bloomberg)

… Recession indicator with perfect track record flashing red (Fox Business Network)

I wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to run for the hills… lots of folks do under the circumstances.

Just understand that’s potentially one of the worst moves you can make…

  • Protect Your Portfolio AND Profit

    Many people wait until a major market move down has already started… then start thinking about how to protect their portfolio.

    The smarter and more profitable move is always to think ahead.

    It’s a subject on the minds of many investors and rightly so given this week’s hijinks. First there was China, then politics, then rates… a trifecta of sorts at best or even a perfect storm depending on your perspective.

    For many, especially those who have just worked up the courage to get back in after having gotten shellacked in the Global Financial Crisis a decade ago, this couldn’t have happened at a worse time. They’re scared and frustrated. Yet, for others this is simply another speed bump in the path to profits and a chance to digest more information.

    My take is that there’s a little of both at work.

    We live in an age where you’ll never outrun the headlines no matter how hard you try. The Internet, Twitter, and Facebook will see to that. But that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck.

    In fact, quite the opposite is true.

    What I am about to tell you is information you won’t get anywhere else.
