We’re moving forward with China, but not the way you might expect. We’ve made potential deals with France, India, England, and Germany – and China is starting to worry that we don’t need them as much as they think we do. Keith Fitz-Gerald lays out exactly what to expect with China, the stock markets, and the trade tensions in these new developments.
I can’t help but be shaken by what’s happening in Hong Kong, even though U.S. markets have largely shaken off the rioting, chaos, and police action there so far. You see, I recall Tiananmen Square in 1989 vividly and fear that Beijing may be approaching another Tiananmen Square moment.
A 2.0 situation really.
Westerners believe that Beijing won’t risk the reputational hit that goes with armed intervention, but I beg to differ. Nobody thought that in 1989 when protestors took over Tiananmen Square either.
Beijing’s calculus is different for reasons I noted on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co. this past Wednesday during a special phone interview. Worse, Beijing may prefer violence to the perception of political weakness or territorial rights.
Very few people understand what I am about to tell you… and that’s why it’s absolutely crucial that you pay attention or risk being on the wrong side an opportunity lurking unseen below the surface.

U.S. markets have shaken off what’s happened in Hong Kong, but that may not be the case for long. These riots may impact your money closer to home, but there’s an easy way to keep your money safe – and keep buying for maximum profit potential. Click here to watch.

Keith joined Varney & Co to discuss why China’s stance in Hong Kong suggests that nation could be dangerously close to Tiananmen 2.0 and what the impact will be on US markets ahead. Click here to watch.
I can only shake my head.
Government regulators and the attorney generals (“AGs”) from more than a dozen states are apparently circling big-tech like a pack of wild dogs circles their prey according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
Only it’s the regulators and AGs who will go hungry.
Yesterday’s antitrust regulation cannot be used to rein in big-tech.

Keith went on Cavuto yesterday with a message to investors: Chaos creates opportunity.
Big tech is coming under pressure, and the state governments are getting involved. The current laws, as written, don’t apply here, and the government is going to have to prove harm to consumers to move forward, which is why states are getting involved.
The chaos created by the headlines are going to create knee-jerk reactions, drive the market lower, and give you the perfect opportunity to buy. Click here to watch.
It’s panic stations for many investors this morning now that the yield curve has inverted – meaning short-term rates are higher than long term rates.
The problem is that much of what you’re hearing is flat-out wrong and, potentially very dangerous for your money.

Monday’s hair-raising 760-point Dow caught a lot of investors by surprise.
I got asked, “Why is this happening??!!” more than once, via email, text, and in person.
Surprisingly, there’s a very simple explanation.
They’re just not what you think.

Earnings reports are starting to roll in, and Keith Fitz-Gerald’s ready. On Varney & Co. Monday morning, Keith went into details:
“I think [tech earnings are] going to be very, very strong, much stronger than many people expect. Now, arguably, the bar is pretty low to begin with, but that doesn’t change the fact that these companies are doing very innovative things, changing the world we live in. And I think that is worth a lot of money to savvy investors.”
Earnings are all about two things: outlook and expectations. He’s repeatedly called out doom and gloomers, counseling that earnings will – yet again – be stronger than expected, giving the companies that come out on top a favorable boost.

Millions of investors make a very fundamental mistake in the pursuit of bigger returns.
They chase “hot stocks” when getting ahead of them is almost always a far better and far more profitable way to go.
I know that sounds obvious… but hear me out.
If you’re of a certain vintage like I am, chances are good that you grew up with the notion that waiting for pullbacks would give you an opening when it came to investing. You were taught to look for “confirmation” before you made you move.
Today’s markets don’t work like that any longer, though. Studies suggest that 60% – 90% of all trading activity is computerized which means that you can’t wait for trends to develop.
You have to be in ahead of time or you’ll miss a huge portion of moves that could make you a fortune. Adding insult to injury, being late to an investment or a trade means that the risks it’s going to turn against you are far higher than most people think.

People ask me frequently how I can confidently and accurately predict the markets, especially when they’re at new highs and fears of a correction run rampant.
And, my answer is always the same.
I don’t predict anything.
I simply know something most investors don’t.

Good morning from Eastern Washington where I’m on the road doing a little research into the latest scientific advances in agriculture, watering technology, and even fertilizer.
I’ll have more on those things in the weeks ahead, but more immediately, I thought we’d dive into the mailbag.

Serial entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk told CNBC recently that he’s seen people go from having nothing to making $100,000 using something he calls, “retail arbitrage flipping.”
My eyebrows shot up.
Not only because Gary Vee – that’s how he’s known the inspirational wealth building crowd – is right, but because of the specific choice of words he used.
The concept is critical in today’s markets and when it comes to your money.
It’s a key part of the Total Wealth Strategy and a fundamental element in one of the Six Unstoppable Trends we follow: War, Terrorism and Ugliness.
A growth trend, really.
Sadly, most investors are missing out, but not for reasons you might think.
Today, I want to talk about that for a moment and give you a head start that could be one of the most profitable trades you make in the next 12 months.

You have to have a thick skin in this business when you stand on your convictions.
And, no surprise, I live by that principle.
What you see is what you get with me, especially when it comes to sticking with new trends that can make you a ton of money when they happen.
Over the years, I’ve made some whoppers…
… The rise of the Japanese yen, beating legendary trader George Soros to the punch by six months and doubling what the Wall Street Journal said the returns were – nearly $1 billion in three months – for his hedge fund followers
… The Chinese would acquire one or more automakers, specifically Hummer and Volvo… both of which happened
… The rise of the prisoner’s dilemma – which we now understand as the U.S.-China trade war
… The fall of Sears Holdings Corp. (OTC:SHLD) in 2012 when I called it the stock to avoid
… The rally when President Trump won the election, before the votes were even cast…
… When it was trading at $350, I told you Tesla Inc. (NasdaqGS:TSLA) was on its way to sub-$200 – it’s there now, and going lower (I expect it to get down to $50)…
My point is not that I’m correct all the time – because I’m not. But, for whatever reason, we seem to get the big picture right, and that’s how the members of the Total Wealth Family do so well for themselves, if they’re following along as directed.
