I had no idea what would happen when I wrote to you last month regarding my newest research and my efforts to predict the stock markets.
I was nervous, uncertain and, frankly, not sure if you’d be interested. Most of all, though, I didn’t want to waste your time.
Turns out I was apprehensive about nothing.
Your reaction has been overwhelming.

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.
I’ve got some fabulous news.
What it means just yet, though, I am not exactly sure.
I’m going to be sharing something very special with you in the months ahead, and there is absolutely nothing you need to do differently to participate.
No gotcha codes… no bait and switch… no hype.
Just groundbreaking research available exclusively to you as a member of the Total Wealth Research Family for FREE.
Admittedly, it’s very controversial for reasons I’ll explain in a minute.
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 an old joke that’s made its way around financial circles over the years. It goes something like this:
An investment banker walks into a room where his cohorts are in a meeting. “I’ve got good news and bad news,” he announces. “The bad news is, we’ve just lost $100 million. The good news is, it wasn’t ours.” An associate raises his hand. “What was the bad news again?”
It’s humor, but there’s more than a grain of truth to the story. Whether we’re talking about brokers, bankers, or even your most trusted financial advisor, you cannot rely on anyone else to care about your money and keep it safe.
At the end of the day, the only thing standing between your portfolio and catastrophic loss is your own caution and proper risk management.
I know it’s not the most exciting part of investing. But there’s zero doubt in my mind it is the most important.
That’s why it’s part of my Total Wealth Strategy.
One tool called position sizing stands out above all others as the most powerful – and not just for cutting risk either, but for boosting your profits, too.
To see what I mean, consider this anecdote from trading psychologist Dr. Van Tharp:
“We’ve done many simulated games in which everyone gets the same trades. At the end of the simulation, 100 different people will have 100 different final equities. And after 50 trades, we’ve seen final equities that range from bankrupt to $13 million – yet everyone started with $100,000, and they all got the same trades. Position sizing and individual psychology were the only two factors involved – which shows just how important position sizing really is.”

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.

I got an interesting question earlier this week while in Las Vegas where I was speaking at the MoneyShow… what works best right now?
Usually, that’s a question related to which specific stocks, bonds, ETFs or other funds you want to buy. But in this case, the person asking wanted to know what kinds of investment methods work best given current market conditions and how you adjust to all the volatility gumming up the works.
That’s a savvy question, especially since there’s a very counter-intuitive answer.
Asking which stocks are “best” is only half the battle when it comes to big profits. To really hit the home runs you and I both know are out there, you’ve got to know which methods work best and when to use them.
Right now, for example, the markets are completely dominated by tweet-driven trading. This favors day traders and the institutional big boys because it caters to the short-term trading methods they use.

Editor’s Note: Hi there! As mentioned on Wednesday, last week, Keith sat down for an exclusive interview with Frank Holmes, CEO and Chief Investment Officer of U.S. Global Investors. Below is part two of the interview. The original text of which first appeared on U.S. Global Investors on April 24, 2019, which you can view by clicking here.
Frank Holmes: You’re known for the 50-40-10 portfolio, among other things. Describe that for us.
KFG: Thanks for pointing that out. Let me start by saying that conventional thinking about diversification is, I believe, badly flawed. The theory is a lot like throwing spaghetti against a wall and seeing what sticks. The proposition is that you have lots of great stocks that don’t go up and down at the same time, but the reality is that it’s more like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic in today’s highly computerized markets, when correlation is higher than it’s been at any point in financial history.
If you want to get ahead and diversify your portfolio, the irony is that you don’t spread it all over. You don’t, for example, see buildings named after “diversifiers,” but you do see ’em named after people who have made a boatload by taking well-reasoned, calculated risks. If you can do that, the returns-the giant profits, really-will come.
Too bad it’s not Thanksgiving because Facebook Inc.‘s (NasdaqGS:FB) stock is getting roasted faster than a 10-pound turkey.
Team Zuckerberg got hammered yet again, when Facebook’s stock fell another 3.03% during Monday’s trading session to close at $159.99, following news that 11 senior managers have handed in their walking papers.
All told, Facebook is down 6.53% and $11.17 from the high it put in only a month ago. That’s a $11.47 billion buzz cut in terms of capitalization.
Some 23.75% and $49.01 per share in the past 12 months alone.
I believe things could get far worse.
