The Dow Jones Hit 20,000 on Wednesday and seconds after it broke through, the nay-sayers made their appearance, citing everything from “rich prices” to “low earnings” as justification.
I could only shake my head in amazement for one simple reason…
…pessimists never make money.
Today I want to talk about why that’s the case, and how you can set yourself up for profits.

It’s looking likely that the Dow will cross the psychologically important 20,000-point threshold today – and profit-taking is likely after that. Here’s Keith on why markets could really get moving after this.

Europe’s economy is a bug in search of a windshield, and the U.S. economy has undeniably shown some bright spots in recent months. But focusing inward and giving up China’s growth markets is an extremely expensive proposition – as the world’s savviest CEOs are showing.
[Kyoto, Japan] – Most investors are at least passingly familiar with the fact that Japan’s demographics are the worst on the planet because the country is “aging” so fast.
What they’re missing is just how massive an opportunity that is for the right investments.
And that’s what we’re going to talk about today, including three specifics that will get you started.

Macy’s, Kohl’s, Target, J.C. Penny’s… the once-proud retailers are all down double-digits from a year ago, including a 53% slump for Macy’s. Here’s Keith Fitz-Gerald on why the investor panic in the retail sector is NOT a buying opportunity.
I’m used to giving tough presentations, but last week’s took the cake when I was asked to frame my delivery around something that’s on many investors’ minds at the moment…
…how to invest for big profits when the smartest guys in the room are wrong
There’s no doubt the “guys in the room are wrong” when you look at the mess central bankers around the world have created in their rush to stimulate the world’s economy.
Nearly every central banker around the world has his or her hands in the proverbial cookie jar at the moment. Together they’ve injected an estimated $8 trillion into the world’s markets with more on the way according to The Wall Street Journal. Yet, the IMF recently made headlines for downgrading global growth to a mere 3.2%??!!
If central bankers actually knew what they were doing and stimulus actually worked, the world’s economy would be screaming along at 7% a year and there’d be more jobs than workers. Wages would be rising and there’d be a housing market that would make even the Kardashians blink.
That’s obviously not happening. Trying the same tired old tactics and expecting different results is a fool’s errand. And that means you’ve got to invest accordingly.
That’s what we’re going to talk about today and, as always, I’ve got an investment choice to get you started that’s perfectly suited for today’s markets.
If you remember the early 1980s like I do, chances are you remember the driving base line, electrifying sound and scorching vocals of this smash hit performed by the British rock band, Queen.
An ode to the times, it came to symbolize any key event that doesn’t go ahead as planned or an unanticipated outcome from which there is no potential recovery.
Like the long anticipated Pfizer/Allergan tie up.
That deal came to an unceremonious end earlier this week when the country’s biggest drug company walked away from a $160 billion deal that would have relocated the company to Ireland as a means of lowering taxes.
China’s grave dancers have taken great pleasure in convincing millions of investors that the nation will never succeed based on any number of erroneous arguments…
…not worthy of world leadership
Underneath it all, this was little more than a thinly veiled contempt for Beijing’s 35-year-old “one child” policy. Called yousheng, the law has averted an estimated 400 million births over the years in the name of modernization and efficient resource consumption.
Now that law’s been scrapped, and couples will be allowed to have two children.
The White House and much of the mainstream media wasted no time posturing after the announcement. Press Secretary Josh Earnest, for example, noted that the policy is a “positive step” but that “we also look forward to the day when birth limits are abandoned altogether.” Amnesty International said bluntly that the policy change was “not enough.”
They’re missing the point.
China’s policy reversal is the gutsiest move yet in the ongoing global Financial Crisis to date. It’s a game changer of the highest magnitude. Moreover, it’s great news for savvy investors.
Today we’re going to talk about why and, of course, how to align your money for maximum profits.
China reported its most recent GDP figures and 6.9% growth versus the officially targeted 7% everybody was expecting. Predictably, the world gasped:
…China’s slowing down
…China’s faking numbers to meet political pressure
…China’s real growth is far less than reported
Now the media’s going to spend the next 72 hours talking about that “miss” as if it’s a real number. But I want you to try to pay as little attention to the discussion as you can. It’s a waste of time and hazardous to your finances.
Instead, focus on the data I’m going to share with you today.
For the simple reason that China’s going to fuel the world’s best businesses for decades to come. And, in the process of doing so, create yet another round of millionaires.
I want you to be one of them.
No doubt you’ve heard about Wal-Mart’s $21 billion wipeout this past Wednesday following revelations from senior management that the company may suffer a 6% – 12% drop in earnings in 2017.
The headlines were certainly hard to miss:
…Wal-Mart Surprises Market With Dim Outlook – The Wall Street Journal
…Wal-Mart Stock Hammered as Profit Warning Triggers Price War Fears – NBC.com
…Wal-Mart Shares Tank on Lower Earnings Forecast – USA Today
…Wal-Mart may need a decade to get its ‘mojo’ back – MarketWatch
Investors may as well be listening to an old Charlie Brown cartoon…wha wha wha.
The actual story here and the one you need to focus on has nothing to do with the company itself but everything to do with a fundamental change in market conditions.
My job is to make sure you and your money come out on the right side of the equation. That way you’re not going to get caught by surprise like millions of investors who will not connect the dots I’m about to share with you.
So let’s get cracking!
Here’s what traders are telling you about today’s markets.
Sometimes a big trend isn’t little enough – what I mean by that is that a big trend may not be as focused as you’d like. To really refine your profit potential, you’ve got to hone in on a sub-trend.
We’re going to talk about that today and, specifically, how recent trading conditions have created an opening that most people don’t see in a sub-trend driving one of the most powerful of our Unstoppable Trends of all – Demographics.
That sounds like a tall order but it’s not too hard if you know what to look for.
The last time I brought one of these sub-trends to your attention, Total Wealth readers who followed along had the opportunity to capture returns of 120.40% in less than nine months.
The opportunity I want to share with you right now could do even better…and even faster.
When I started Total Wealth, I made you a promise that we were not only going to cover the events of the day and the opportunities they create, but also the specific tactics you need to maximize profits and build Total Wealth.
Today I want to keep that promise with a look at the single most powerful Total Wealth Tactic of all.
It’s simple, easy to use, and takes only an extra second or two to put in place.
Before I tell you what it is, though, I want to tell you why it works…
- …because the tactic I’m going to share with you today puts YOU in control.
I know that’s hard to imagine given that you’re trading against the likes of Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, and other firms with billions of dollars, but it’s absolutely true.
Moreover, it doesn’t cost a penny, can save you money, and can dramatically increase your odds of success.
Get this right and you’re immediately in command of your own financial destiny.
We recently talked about how analysts consistently create investing opportunities for you with their wrong-headed calls on individual companies they know very little about (click here to see that again).
But we haven’t talked about what happens when they create ideal entry points in whole sectors… or even entire nations… about which they know even less.
So let’s do that today.
I want to give you a truthful look at what’s happening in the single most underestimated, misunderstood, and perpetually disrespected country on earth: China.
Then we’ll examine why it’s creating an ideal moment to invest, how savvy investors are jumping in anyway, and what steps you can take to join them (including three investments you can make today).
Here’s everything you need to know…
Most investors consider themselves fortunate to latch on to one really big trend in their investing lifetime. But imagine what happens when you latch on to two, three, or even four…
… at the same time, with the same investment!
That’s the situation we’ve got right now with one of my favorite Total Wealth recommendations.
Not only is this going to dramatically increase the potential returns I envision, but also it may render them entirely too conservative. And that doesn’t happen very often.
By unleashing a new set of products drawn from their existing research and development that taps into a fourth unstoppable trend. So if the idea of triple-digit potential appeals to you like it does to me, pull up a chair.
What I am about to tell you could reshape labor markets and, in the process, create an entirely new group of millionaires savvy enough to cash in.
Here’s the scoop.
When I began Total Wealth Research, I highlighted six “Unstoppable Trends” – each of which is backed by trillions of dollars – and promised that we’d check in on them from time to time in the pursuit of profits.
Today, I want to keep that promise.
Not only are all the “Unstoppable Trends” fully intact, many are actually getting even stronger. So are the companies we’re tapped into, especially when they’re in sectors being written off by the mainstream investment community.
For instance, I brought Williams Companies Inc. (NYSE:WMB) to your attention on January 7, 2015, as a way of playing the beleaguered energy sector. It’s returned 15.35% since then, or more than triple that of the S&P 500 over the same time frame.
Then there’s Kratos Defense & Security Solutions Inc. (NasdaqGS:KTOS),a small niche defense contractor positioned for huge gains by playing outside the mainstream defense contracting procurement ballpark. It’s returned more than 16% since I called your attention to a re-entry point on January 9.
Kyocera Corp. (NYSE:KYO), the Japanese tech giant I called out on New Year’s Eve as a means of playing the uneven stimulus that’s powering Japanese markets, is up 10.87%.
Thing is, I’m not telling you this to brag. What I want you to understand is that stocks backed by “Unstoppable Trends” have the potential to dramatically outperform the markets.
And that’s why you need to keep every single one of our trends at the top of your mind… so that you can tap into the potential created by trillions of dollars on the move.
Here’s what you need to know about each of our “Unstoppable Trends” today – starting with the biggest opportunity on the planet right now.
