The S&P is at an all-time high, the Dow is closing in on 30,000, the Nasdaq is already up 1.5%; all good news for you and your money. But, Keith makes the point that this isn’t the real breakout yet… and here’s what could tell you when that will come. Plus, why Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL) doesn’t only have a little more upside potential but could double within the next 24 months – even after Jony Ivy’s recent departure. Click here to watch.

Divergence Between These Sectors Could Mean One of Two Things Ahead – Here’s How to Prepare for Both
The S&P 500 is on target to hit the “best first half-year” it’s had in more than a decade, while the Dow is on track to do even better – with the best June on record since 1938.
Strategically speaking, I think the rally could go on for another decade, which is why you want to invest accordingly. There’s just that much fuel pent up between growing sales, cheap money and – unbelievably – a still accommodative Fed.
Tactically speaking, though, I think we could see a short-term change in direction.
I’m not alone in my thinking, incidentally.
JPMorgan analysts pointed out something my own research has picked up on and that we’ve talked about in recent months: cyclical stocks that are usually key economic growth drivers have failed to keep up since May when they lost ground along with the rest of the market. In fact, only utilities and consumer staples have kept up, which means, technically speaking, there’s no “confirmation.”
In plain English, this means…

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.”

Millions of investors are waiting for developments between the U.S. and China at the G20, and with good reason. The implications for the market – and your money – are huge. “Truce” streaming across the headlines Monday morning could shoot the markets higher, but here’s Keith on why you might not have to wait for Monday morning to see what could happen.

Keith joins Fox Business Network this afternoon to let you in on why the “whack-a-mole” approach to tariffs President Trump seems to be taking can be disturbing and potentially expensive, but there’s also something you can’t forget when it comes to the biggest global companies…. and what that could mean for your money ahead.

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.

Recessions come and go, often without warning. Surviving them is a matter of perspective. The best thing to look for in a “recession-proof” investment mirror the stuff we talk about frequently – companies making must-have products that the world can’t live without. Click here to watch.

Good morning and welcome to another edition of your Total Wealth Weekender. I’m Keith Fitz-Gerald, Chief Investment Strategist for Money Map Press.
Thanks, as always, for spending a few minutes of your valuable time with me today.
I’m often asked to recommend stocks that will “beat the market” or “withstand a trade war with China” or – as of late – be “recession-proof” – a thought on the minds of many given the prospect of a Fed rate cut.
Obviously there are no sure things in this business but the stock I’ve got for you is dang close… in fact, it’s the closest thing out there to a recession-proof stock as I can find right now.
The crypto-crowd was abuzz earlier this week when Facebook Inc. (NasdaqGS:FB) announced that it was creating a new digital currency called Libra.
Only it’s not a crypto currency.
It’s money, and CEO Mark Zuckerberg wants you to believe it’s Facebook’s redemption.
But I tell you this… it could be the single most dangerous form of digital surveillance yet and, as such, a “complete 180” from Bitcoin.

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.

The Federal Reserve could cut interest rates on Wednesday afternoon – or raise them. One way, it’s a nonevent, but if it goes the other way, we could be looking at a huge selloff. Here’s what Keith has to say about the Fed’s interest rates, technology malfunctions, and Bitcoin – and how they affect the market. Click here to watch.

Right now there’s a lot of discussion about what the Fed will do next and how that will impact markets. So much so, in fact, that I’ve been asked about it during several recent television interviews.
The topic’s already come up this morning as well at the Seattle Money Show where I’m speaking about why every investing dollar you’ll make for the next ten years is on “this list.” I hope you’re signed up because it will be streamed live starting at 10:40 a.m. Pacific Standard time. Click here to do so. Better yet, I hope you’re here, and we have a chance to say hello!
Anyway, my answer on this issue remains the same.

Right now there’s a lot of discussion about what the Fed will do next and how that will impact markets. Here’s what I have to say: The market is almost always dead wrong about what the Fed will do next. This is what they’ll do next. Click here to watch.

I remember September 1981 vividly, but not for reasons you might think.
Young, bulletproof, and fearless, I “met the Stones” and, much to my parent’s chagrin, nearly got arrested in the process, which is a story for another time.
That got me thinking.
The 1981 tour to promote Tattoo You, the Rolling Stone latest album back then, was widely expected at the time to be the last time the Rolling Stones went on tour. Yet, 38-odd years later, I find myself getting ready to buy another round of tickets to see Mick and the boys do their thing.
