    The “Best” Buy I Can Find Now That Powell’s Blinked

    Fed Chair Jerome Powell changed his tune Wednesday morning, saying rates were much closer to “neutral” than they’ve been.

    Not surprisingly, the markets SHOT higher with the Dow tacking on 600+ points in its second best day of the year. All three averages gave some of that back immediately on Thursday, but no matter.

    I’ve got to hand it to him.

    Seems even “old dogs can learn new tricks.”

    The One Tactic You Need to Beat Wall Street’s Secret Weapon

    For most investors, the relationship between investing and profits seems simple enough. You buy low, sell high, and your portfolio grows – or so goes the story.

    In reality, success ultimately comes down to defeating something called “Gambler’s Ruin.”

    We’re going to talk about that today – what it is, what it means for your money and, most importantly, how to beat it.

    It’s a column you won’t want to miss because it’ll give you an edge other investors would pay dearly to have.

    Not one in 250,000 understands it.

    The difference between heartache and success comes down to this concept.

    How to Make Any Investment You Have “Risk Free”

    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.

    We’ll always have market corrections… but corrections, I might add, that YOU don’t have to fear if you understand what we’re going to talk about today.

    The One Tactic You Need to Beat Wall Street at Its Own Game

    Conventional wisdom holds that Wall Street is rigged to favor the big traders, and that you’ll never win.

    The implication is, of course, 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 continue to beat Wall Street at its own game during times of great market stress, 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.

    YOU can do this – starting with understanding something I call the Lowball Order.

    It’s one of my favorite Total Wealth Tactics because it’s such a powerful profit creator.

    The “Total Wealth Principle of Forced Perspective” Is Worth Millions

    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.

    For example, many people

    Your Top Questions (And Answers) Right Now

    “What a great time to be an investor!”

    I began my keynote address last week at the Dallas MoneyShow with those very remarks, and the audience began cheering when I launched into why.

    You may be wondering if that’s still true now following this week’s gut-wrenching market action.

    In a word… yes.

    In fact, the selling we’ve just been through this week completely reinforces the notion.

    Huge, sharp, and rapid declines ALWAYS create massive profits.

    Not sometimes.

    Not part of the time.

    This is The Single Worst Mistake You Can Make in Today’s Markets

    Many investors are convinced that the bull market is over and there’s nothing worth buying at the moment. Worse, they’re selling out and heading for the sidelines using even the slightest market drop as justification for their actions.

    I can’t think of a worse mistake.

    There are all kinds of ways to hedge volatility these days. No investor need fear a bear market – let alone suffer the ravages of getting financially mauled.

    There are all kinds of ways to run flat or down markets to your advantage if you are properly prepared, and have the right perspective and a firm grasp on the right Total Wealth Tactics.

    So far we’ve talked about specific Total Wealth Tactics like LowBall Orders, which you can use to buy the stock you want at exactly the price you’re prepared to pay – ideally at a huge discount. We’ve also covered Position Sizing as a means of limiting risk before you place a trade, Trailing Stops to protect your capital once you’re “in” and Free Trades to help you maximize profits when it’s time to sell.

    Today, I want to introduce a new wrinkle.

    Two Speculative Scenarios (and Six Investments) for Midterm Elections

    Earlier this week, I wrote to you about the fact that there is no significant statistical relationship between what happens next in the markets and midterm elections.

    And what I had to say started a firestorm.

    My email exploded, as you might imagine, with the bulk of the commentary centered on the five most dangerous words in the English language – “it’ll be different this time.”

    Probably not.

    But, I’m game.

    So, let’s continue the conversation by playing this through

    This Company Could Revolutionize Cannabis Testing

    I’ll cut right to the chase.

    Monday’s tech selloff, combined with news from Canada that will make sense in a moment, created a very specific opening. As usual, that’s a terrific opportunity.

    Specifically, I want you to capitalize on the ensuing chaos by picking up an innovative testing company that got unfairly beaten down.

    Today’s recommendation is in one of the fastest growing industries on the planet and, importantly, what I am suggesting is a twist on things that I’ve never seen discussed elsewhere.

    Let’s dive right in.

    Pot, Maui-Wowi, magic lettuce, cannabis… whatever you want to call it – marijuana is here to stay.

    California and Canada have legalized recreational use and there are dozens of jurisdictions that are going to follow along. The global marijuana market will be worth nearly $60 billion less than ten years from now, according to Arcview Market Research.

    More people than ever will “light up” which means there’s a huge opening being created

    Three Investing Lessons “From the Road” That Can Lead to Huge Profits

    I’m a huge fan of what I call “boots on the ground” investing, which is why I take off on an extended motorcycle trip at around this time every year. There’s no substitute for first-hand knowledge to my way of thinking.

    That’s true both in terms of the lessons learned and the specific recommendations I make.

    Riding BMWs through Europe’s fertile farming regions, for example, led me to Monsanto Co. (NYSE:MON) and led readers to one of the first 100% winners I recommended after becoming Money Morning’s Chief Investment Strategist.

    A crazy day piloting antique sidecars in Shanghai, China helped me identify Sinovac Biotech Ltd. (NasdaqGS:SVA) as a promising investment opportunity and the resulting 351% winner that went with it.

    Ducatis in northern Kyoto, Japan led me to recommend two plays on the Japanese yen, the Invesco CurrencyShares Japanese Yen (NYSEArca:FXY) and the ProShares Ultrashort Yen (NYSEArca:YCS), that beat legendary investor George Soros to the punch by six months. Both helped readers who were following along to more than double the returns Soros reportedly achieved, according to The Wall Street Journal.

    My trip this year around the American West was no exception in that department.

    I’m going to be sharing a recommendation with you in the weeks ahead that could double if what I learned about a quintessential American automaker during an early morning, coffee fueled pre-ride conversation proves out. So, you’ll want to check back for that shortly when I’ve completed my research.

    In the meantime, though, I want to share three key lessons from this year’s ride…

    Play With House Money by Making All of Your Investments “Risk Free”

    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.

    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.

    This is your moment of truth.

    You can read today’s column and bin it, or you can rethink what you know about what it takes to achieve the kind of life-altering profits that make the financial future of your dreams possible.

    The way I see things, no investor ever has to suffer the ravages of a market correction – let alone a bear market – if they’re prepared.

    The concept is nothing new.

    The allure of risking nothing and gaining everything has been around for centuries

    Special Message from FreedomFest: Other Analysts FINALLY Catching On…

    I’m in Las Vegas at FreedomFest 2018, where I’m speaking during the next few days and catching up with long time colleagues. Those include the legendary Jim Rogers, Steve Forbes, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Stephen Moore, and, of course, my host, Dr. Mark Skousen, who’s kindly invited me back every year since he began the conference!

    My topics this year include a special presentation on “where the Samurai would invest today and why their tactics could be worth a fortune to savvy investors” as well as “what am I missing” – which is being billed as the ultimate question for all bulls and bears. I’ll also be debating Rob Arnott – the godfather of smart beta investing – on Tesla Inc. (NasdaqGS:TSLA).

    Speaking of which, let’s talk about the markets for a moment. They obviously got hit hard on Wednesday due to tariff scares, but that’s not something we need to worry about.

    How to Buy Any Stock You Want… “On Sale”

    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, especially now with the prospect of a global trade war looming larger by the minute.
