I’ve been in global markets for 37 years now as an analyst, trader and consultant and if there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s that personal success – meaning big profits – comes from something a lot of investors fail to grasp.
The single most important thing you can do as an investor is to realize that wealth is a choice… but getting there is a skill.
Let me repeat that.
Wealth is a choice but getting there is a skill.
You have to work at it.
Chances are you’ve heard of China’s fabled “ghost cities.”
That’s a derogatory term bandied about in the Western press a decade ago by badly misinformed investors who were more interested in convincing themselves that China was about to collapse than paying attention to the rapid growth taking place there and the profits being created as that happened.
Huge, futuristic complexes in Kangbashi, Yujiapu, Meixi, and Pudong were viewed as singular failures because they stood “empty” by Western standards. Legions of otherwise rational investors saw them as proof-positive that China’s economic machine was on a one-way track to nowhere.
Today, though, many of those very same “Ghost Cities” are vibrant, urban and fully alive exactly as I told you they would be a decade ago. What’s more, China itself has emerged as global economic powerhouse capable of dominating any market it enters for decades to come even if there’s no trade agreement.
Shanghai’s Pudong District is a particular standout. Once China’s laughingstock because it was so empty, the area now has a 99% occupancy rate and is home to more than 5 million people according to Knight Frank, an international real estate consultancy.
Now, I’m hearing about “ghost greenhouses.”
Sadly, though, this will not be a tale of unrivaled prosperity like most people think. In fact, the opposite is true and I believe the numbers point to the potential for unrivaled financial devastation.
Millions of unsuspecting investors risk losing everything.

24 hours ahead of the jobs data, Keith thought the job numbers might be unexpectedly low, but was still planning on a solid market move because of what he sees happening next. Here’s what he told Fox Business Network’s Charles Payne.
I love pessimists.
They help the rest of us make gobs of money, especially when it comes to a company like Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL).
Shares are up 56% this year alone and on their way to another double.
Just not for reasons you might think.

Keith predicted Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL) would double last January, when it was around $150 per share, and people thought he was a “space alien.” Now, the joke’s on everyone who didn’t buy because it’s closing in on $300 a share.

People view new highs as a source of fear, but really, they’re a source of strength. Keith explains why.

Failing – hard and often – is good for your money…as long as you don’t keep making the same mistakes, over and over again. To live a profitable life, you need to fail – and then get back up and try again. Click here to watch.

Most investors want desperately to succeed which is why they fall time and again for glitzy advertising, hype and – honestly – complete crap … much of which, unfortunately, comes from my industry.
Chances are you know exactly what I’m talking about.
But, here’s the secret.
You can’t just keep doing the same stupid things with your money if you want to truly live an extraordinary and very profitable life. You’ve got to tap into your subconscious and into your deepest fears first.
You’ve got to FAIL.
Just not for the reasons you might think.
I trust today’s email finds you well and set for a fabulous weekend. Fall is in full swing here as the leaves turn brilliant shades of orange, red, and maroon. The temperatures are dropping and snow’s already piling up in the passes which means another one of my favorites – skiing – is just around the corner!
Anyway, that’s enough about that!
My data scientists and I have made a lot of progress in recent weeks when it comes to predicting the markets. So, knowing you’ve got a keen interest in what I’ve been up to in this department, I thought you’d enjoy an update on some of my most recent research.

Amazon’s been drawing in short-term traders, but it’s just noise when it comes to this e-commerce giant. Plus, Keith weighs in on what’s happening with Intel.

Let me ask you something…
… are you “in to win” when it comes to today’s markets?
I mean, REALLY “in” to win.
A lot of folks say they are, but their actions don’t add up.
Today we’re going to talk about how you can gain control of otherwise self-defeating moves and turn them into profit generating reflexes.

Keith’s compelling argument on Fox Business’s Varney & Co. may surprise you.
Let me ask you something.
What if I told you that you could add six figures to your net worth in the next 12 months by making a single, well-planned out move? Or, if you’re a bit more aggressive, that you could fund your entire retirement by doing the same thing?
Personally, I’d be skeptical as all hell.
But, it’s true.
That’s what makes investing so cool and, if you’re doing it right, so much fun, too.
Many people believe that you have to have big money to make money, and that’s not true at all. Anybody CAN become fabulously wealthy by making the right moves. Click here to watch.
I had lunch with a friend of mine a while back in Venice – Italy – not Beach.
On track to make “partner” at one of the big global investing powerhouses, he said he’s looking forward to making $3 million to $5 million a year. At which point, he’d be successful.
“What would you do then?” I asked.
He thought for a moment then answered, “Take a long trip to Italy.”
Hmmmm, I thought to myself as I took in another slug of café.
That’s what I was doing.
