Good News, Great News and a Fresh, Turbo-Charged Pick, Too!

Keith Fitz-Gerald Apr 24, 2020

I’ve got some good news and some GREAT news for you today.

Let’s start with the good.

We’re going to be freshening up the Total Wealth to reflect what I think will be the investing opportunity of a lifetime when the coronavirus is beaten.

Make no bones about it, the past 14 years have been phenomenal. In fact, you’d do just fine leaving things alone given the track record we’ve enjoyed together – my team did a quick count and there are literally hundreds of winning trades, including many well in excess of 100%.

Some of my favorite examples include tapping into Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL) early when we were first in the water on the company’s “medical” pivot. I’m also particularly proud of the fact that we beat billionaire investor, George Soros, to the punch by a full 6 months with the Japanese Yen and, in the process more than doubled his returns reported by the Wall Street Journal that year.

More recently we’ve nailed the rise of big tech and any investor following along has had the opportunity to accumulate truly life-changing wealth… Total Wealth.

Thing is, I want you to do even better.

The coronavirus has created generational profit potential just the way the Global Financial Crisis did in 2008 and 2009. It’s the kind of chance you’ll see once, or maybe twice, in a lifetime if you’re lucky.

Which brings me to the GREAT news.

I’ve asked my good friend and colleague, Shah Gilani, to take over as Chief Investment Strategist for Money Map Press and your editor right here in Total Wealth, effectively immediately.

We’ve known each other for more than 20 years and let me tell you from experience, Shah’s the real deal. Not only that, he’s a close family friend and somebody I trust implicitly.

Shah started his first hedge fund in 1982 from a seat on the Chicago Board of Options Exchange. Then, he worked the “pits” as a market maker starting in 1983 when S&P 100 options began trading. He also helped develop the VIX, which to this day, is one of the most widely quoted financial indicators of all time.

From there, Shah moved on to Lloyd’s futures and options division and the packaged fixed-income desk for Roosevelt & Cross, an old-line New York boutique firm. And, as if that weren’t enough, he started and ran another hedge fund from 1999 to 2003.

Now, he’s going to lead you, me, and the entire Money Map family into the future.

That’s right, me too.

You see, I’m also going to become a subscriber – that’s how excited I am about what’s happening.

As for what I’m doing, I’m going to return to trading full time. I’m also going to be putting the finishing touches on investment analysis software I’ve had in the works for years. My personal Twitter account is @fitz_keith if you’d like to stay in touch.

If I know Shah, I’ll bet dimes to dollars that he’s already got a bonus pick lined up for you, and that it’ll land in your email very shortly. So please keep an eye out for that.

In closing, thank you for the trust you have placed in me; I cannot think of a higher, more distinct honor nor privilege. It’s been an incredible journey and, now, a new voyage.

As always, be “in to win!”

With best regards for investing, health and a fabulous future,
