To say that the past few weeks have been challenging for most investors would be an understatement. Caught between a rock and a hard place by violent swings that carry prices higher one day and lower the next, most have no idea what to do next. Let alone, figure out where to invest their money for maximum profits.
I’ve got you covered on both counts.
Everything we do is aimed at sidestepping Wall Street’s worst moments yet harvesting the best it has on offer.
Today I want to talk about something that’s exceptionally important given recent trading. In fact, it may be the single most important video message I’ve ever delivered.
I write today with one very important question on my mind…
…did I help you make money in 2017?
I’m asking because I’m a firm believer in taking my own advice.
I counsel you to take a good hard look at the strategies you use, at your investments, and at your analysis so it only makes sense that I do the same.
Some people call this “transparency,” but I call it “owning up.”

Momentum investing has a bad rap.
Over the past 35 years I’ve heard it referred to as a “strategy for idiots,” or a foolish undertaking on par with a good old-fashioned game of “hot potato” … usually by Wall Street types or academics who look dismissively down their nose at anyone suggesting something different.
The irony, of course, is that momentum investing works.
What’s more, momentum investing:
- Is simple to use
- Easy to understand; and,
- Can keep you out of trouble if the markets roll over
The premise is very straightforward.

I’ve talked with tens of thousands of investors over the years and almost to a person they’re convinced that building wealth is a complicated, difficult undertaking.
Not the way I see it.
In reality the biggest challenge isn’t investing itself.
And, specifically, the lies we tell ourselves about money.
Learn to get around those, and making money becomes easy. Racking up huge profits becomes fun. Retirement becomes – dare I say it – something you enjoy.

Many investors know that income should play an important role in their investment portfolio, but most have no idea how to go about lining it up. So, they go without, or worse, pay too much, which essentially amounts to the same thing.
Fortunately, there’s a simple solution.
The “YARP” test.
YARP, if you’ve never heard the term before, stands for “yield at a reasonable price.”
The idea is very simple.
Pay as little as possible for as much income as possible.
I know that sounds obvious but you’d be floored by how many investors have quietly approached me over the years in hushed tones asking for help sorting this out.
Many are deeply embarrassed that they just “don’t get it.” Yet, there’s nothing to be embarrassed about. I know plenty of Wall Street professionals who are completely clueless when it comes to income investing.
Let’s start with how you define the term.
There’s no way to eliminate risk 100% when it comes to investing.
I can’t do it. You can’t do it. (And if anyone tries to tell you otherwise, take your money and run.)
There’s just no such thing.
Yet, unbeknownst to most investors, there is a way to make any investment risk “free” under the right circumstances using one of my favorite Total Wealth Tactics: the “Free Trade.”
Not only does this remove risk from your portfolio, but it means you can potentially build profits faster, more consistently, and more securely than you might think.
Doing so is a critically important concept given current market conditions and a bull market that, as of yesterday is 3,117 days old and has run more than 237% off March 9, 2009 lows.
We’re long overdue for a correction… a correction, I might add, that YOU don’t have to fear if you understand what we’re going to talk about today.
This is your moment of truth.

August is a traditionally light time for the market, and this year is no different. Traders – just like you and me – like to take this time to go on vacation with their families. It’s typical to see thinner volume, fractious trading, and a narrow range. So, right now, the single most important thing you can do is something we talk about all the time… Click to watch…

The “Trump Trade” may be on life support, which obviously has a lot of investors worried at the moment.
Not surprisingly, the question I’m getting asked more than any other is two-fold:
…has the bull market run its course, and is there a correction right around the corner?
The implication, of course, is whether or not you should be selling everything you own, buying a banjo and a couple hundred gallons of water, and hunkering down 500 miles from the nearest military installation.
In a word – no.
As we’ve talked about many times, there is no reason in the world why a properly prepared investor has to suffer the ravages of a bear market, let alone a major market correction.
The Dow hit a record high right out of the gate on Wednesday and that’s got investors wondering if there’s a correction lurking in the wings.
With all the political turmoil at hand over healthcare, taxes, and more, many are rightly concerned that a downturn could set them back years.
What they’re missing is that times like the present are loaded with pure, unadulterated profit potential.
…if you understand the Total Wealth Tactic I’m going to share with you today.
Before I tell you what it is, though, let me say that the tactic we’re going to discuss right now is one of the most powerful of all the Total Wealth Tactics we’ve got at our disposal.
What’s more, it’s so simple anybody can use it to boost returns and reduce losses – in 90 seconds or less.
Conventional wisdom holds that Wall Street is rigged to favor the big traders, and that you’ll never win.
The implication, of course, is why even try?
I’ve never believed that, and you shouldn’t either.
In reality, there are plenty of savvy investors who have beaten and who continue to beat Wall Street at its own game consistently, including Sir John Templeton, the legendary Jim Rogers, Stanley Druckenmiller, and Warren Buffett, just to name a few.
I want YOU to be one of ’em, and I’m here to tell you that YOU can beat the Street.
I’m not kidding.
There’s a lot of uncertainty in the markets right now, which means it’s a perfect time to discuss one of the most powerful Total Wealth Tactics of all.
Before I tell you what it is though, let me say that the tactic we’re going to discuss today can significantly boost your returns and reduce your losses – all while taking less than 90 seconds of your time.
My friend Pete threw up his hands in exasperation as yesterday’s selling intensified and groaned…
“…how do I find a stock I can hold forever??!!”
Like millions of investors, Pete’s fed up with financial markets he can’t control and he positively hates the pit in his stomach he gets wondering whether or not it’s “here we go again” time.

Most investors concentrate only on the negative when, as Keith points out, there’s a silver lining in every cloud. Here’s what you need to know, along with how to play the possibility of a “Trump Dump.”
Many investors believe that a fiscal cliff “dive” is inevitable.
I can’t say I disagree.
Our politicians refuse to do anything but bicker with each other much to the detriment of millions of hardworking people, and playing “kick the can” seems to have become a national sport. Factor in a divided nation and it’s hard to imagine anything other than more foolishness ahead.
