The markets have been in a cantankerous mood this week, following revelations that Democrats intend to pursue an impeachment inquiry against President Trump.
Whether that’s right or wrong doesn’t concern me. I don’t have the luxury of picking sides in my capacity as Chief Investment Strategist.
My job is to help you make money by accurately assessing the situation and what it means for the world’s markets.
The markets are flirting with new highs once again and, once again, the perma-bears are out in force.
I have nothing against them.
Many, in fact, are exceptionally gifted thinkers.
But the fact that they’ve been as wrong as the day has been long since… oh, I dunno… March 2009 has got to sting. The S&P 500 has risen 320% since then which is enough to turn every $10,000 invested into $42,300 or more.
Many of the stocks I’ve recommended have done even better. Apple, for instance, has jumped a staggering 1,630%, Raytheon’s tacked on 416.2% and Alphabet’s up 118.6%, and. That’s enough to turn $10,000 into $173,020… $51,620… even $21,860, respectively.!
Sell if you want but doing so is potentially one of the single worst and most expensive mistakes you’ll ever make unless, of course, you have to (which is another subject for different time).

I unknowingly struck a chord with last week’s Weekender when I addressed the surprisingly simple reason money makes people uncomfortable… that it’s not working as hard as you think it is.
“You nailed it,” said Bryan.
“Simple, understandable, and perspective I needed to hear,” remarked Janice.
So, let’s go back to the proverbial well this week with a look at three surprising reasons why investors really fail. Then, we’ll talk about using a few of my favorite Total Wealth Tactics to ensure you don’t repeat their mistakes.
And potentially make a mint, too.

Millions of investors have a problem and it’s sadly one that they don’t even realize.
They don’t understand what it means to be an “investor.”
You can’t just start investing to start making money like most people think. Doing so is a conscious effort that begins with the decision to be wealthy. It fuels your soul, not just your wallet.
You have to want to be successful…to be wealthy.
Which is why I ask… do you have what it takes?
I think so.

I get asked frequently “how to make a fortune.”
Many investors think doing so comes down to picking the right stocks. Others believe it’s all about timing. Still more think it’s just plain dumb luck.
While it’s true that all of those things DO play into big profits, I’ve got a secret.
Get what I’m about to show you right and YOU can succeed.

A bad day in the headlines is almost always ultimately good for your portfolio.
Today we’re going to talk about why and what you can do next to press your advantage.
Today I want to switch things up a bit and talk about two words that almost nobody talks about when it comes to money.
But they should.
Learning how to overcome this is one of the single most important and profitable skills you can acquire in today’s markets.
What’s more, recognizing this bias in yourself (and fixing it) can give you a significant advantage over other investors who suffer from it.

The market’s been volatile to say the least – last Wednesday, it fell 800 points, then, this Wednesday, it tacked on 60-something points. What’s the message the market is giving off? “it’s a bullish indicator,” Keith Fitz-Gerald said on Fox Business. Here’s why… Click here to watch.

Happy Fourth of July Weekend!
I’m Keith Fitz-Gerald, Chief Investment Strategist for Money Map Press and Founder of Total Wealth Research.
I’ll keep things short today because I’m keen to get on with my holiday weekend, and I hope you are, too.

American humorist, actor, and social commentator Will Rogers once said, “good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.”
Adored during the 1930s, I can only wonder what he’d say today.
History rarely works out as expected, especially when it comes to the perspective you need to profit from it. Society, of course, doesn’t think this way, which is why our lives are filled with information “everybody” knows is true – but really isn’t.

This week I’d like to address something that most investors never think about… how to trade a stock when the unthinkable happens.
The Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA) is a great example.
It’s a key defense contractor and a “must-have” stock, tied into several key Unstoppable Trends, including Technology, War, Terrorism & Ugliness, and Demographics.
The company’s under extreme pressure at the moment, and existing shareholders have taken a $26.6 billion buzzcut they didn’t sign up for.
For most investors, a situation like this is unthinkable.
One day, they buy a company based on super results, super products, or just super potential. Then… WHAM… the stock gets pounded.
Boeing opened, for example, a full 51.29 points lower Monday, following the crash of Ethiopian Airlines 737 Max 8 the day before – the second such crash in less than six months for a 737 Max 8 aircraft. Then, it dropped further, ultimately breaching $370 a share by Wednesday.
Thing is, this isn’t an isolated incident.
Here’s why and what you can do about it.
The Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA)’s stock has gotten a $26.6 billion buzzcut since Sunday’s 737 Max 8 crash, and more than a dozen countries have now ordered the jets taken out of service. What’s more, in a stunning about-face, President Trump has ordered all 737 Max 8 and 737 Max 9 grounded.
Millions of investors are wondering what to do next and you’re not alone if you’re one of ’em.
Today’s column will contain some of the most valuable investing advice you’ll ever read.
But be forewarned. You won’t see this anywhere else.
What I have to say is direct… blunt even.
I’ve chosen to publish this column today because I want every investor who reads it to have a fighting chance in the months ahead, at a time when the headlines are hopelessly negative and running for the hills seems like a prudent thing to do.
Not 1 in 1 million investors will come to terms with today’s message, which is too bad, considering how much wealth will be created by those few – like you – who do.

There’s a lot of discussion at the moment about which way the markets are going to go from here. Some of it’s good, but frankly, a lot of it’s bad.
Like that’s a shock!!??
The media loves negative stories because that’s how they keep you hooked and emotionally off-guard. Wall Street, of course, plays along because they know negative headlines make it easier to separate you from your retirement.
The other thing to think about is that they’re playing “catch up,” whereas we’re often months ahead of developments they’re only just getting around to reporting.
Like for example, the possibility of short-term market turbulence but higher prices ahead… that’s the latest from Wells Fargo’s Christopher Harvey who’s a noted bear and seconded by Merrill Lynch’s Stephen Suttmeier – both as reported by CNBC earlier this week. Or Bloomberg’s report that JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa now considers the $6 target he’s got on General Electric Co. (NYSE:GE) to be “generous.”
Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL)’s pivot, meanwhile, is beginning to draw attention for the reasons we laid out more than a year ago when I first told you about why services could double that stock’s value. Tesla Inc. (NasdaqGS:TSLA)’s in trouble…
You get the idea.
Anyway, the reason I am bringing all this up is not to take a victory lap.
There are four big profit-robbing mistakes investors are making at the moment – and want to make sure you’re not among ’em.
