The Swiss-based Bank for International Settlements (BIS) released its latest annual report and warned there could be a “quick and sharp” reversal of fortune of the world’s debt when markets come home to roost.
Talk about being in firm command of the obvious!!??
Global debt is 12% higher now and far more concentrated than it was during the height of the Global Financial Crisis in 2008-09. What’s more, cautioned the BIS, the rising U.S. dollar threatens to set off a liquidity squeeze on par with 2013’s “Taper Tantrum.”
To paraphrase Homer Simpson… “doh!!!”
Economists and public officials will tell you otherwise, of course.
The banks are safer now, they say, “because of higher capital ratios” and revised reserve requirements intended to keep the world’s financial system in one piece. That’s the official story.
What they’re not telling you is that the risks have been very methodically and very deliberately shifted to individual investors, pension funds, and insurance companies – a move I told Money Morning readers was coming more than a decade ago, long before Total Wealth existed and many times since.
It’s scary stuff and, to be clear, I am NOT trying to ruin your day.
With all the political turmoil at hand about Italy, Spain, and China, 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.

Millions of investors make a very fundamental mistake in the pursuit of bigger returns.
They try to chase the “hot stocks” while they’re hot when, in fact, getting ahead of them is the far better and far more profitable way to go.
I know that sounds obvious… but hear me out.
Adding insult to injury, being late to a trade – any trade – means you run the risk of having a late stage rally turned against you. Chances are good that you know what I’m talking about, just like my audiences did at the Las Vegas MoneyShow last week.
My good friends, Dr. Mark Skousen and Louis Navellier, tore into me with a smile during a luncheon panel this past Wednesday at the Las Vegas MoneyShow, when the subject of Tesla Inc. (NasdaqGS:TSLA) came up.
…Tesla has cashflow problems, its battery factory is a managerial wreck, its cars don’t work, Tesla battery panels haven’t been delivered…
Neither Mark nor Louis can envision a future in which the company succeeds, much less one with far higher share prices ahead. That’s saying something, considering they’re two of the smartest analysts out there and how much respect I have for the both of ’em.
I’ve got a different opinion, though.
Telsa’s a speculative play, not an investment.
And, not surprisingly, that means you have to think about the company differently. It also means that the normal metrics you’d use to analyze investment potential simply don’t apply.
I’m not interested in hanging around any longer than it takes to make money.
Tesla is about hope, vision, and aspiration, which is why I believe the company has all the makings for another sharp run higher.

Paul S. feels like a genius.
“I am absolutely bragging,” he told my research team shortly before a presentation I gave in California two years ago. “I feel like I have to, because what’s happened to my retirement prospects is both wonderful and amazing at the same time.”
Paul should feel terrific. He’s managed to nurse a retirement nest egg that’s now pushed past half a million dollars, and multiplied itself three times over in the process…
… in only 11 years, at a time when the S&P 500 returned only 8%;
… despite the fact that he’s not a stock-picking savant; and,
… using just the plain-Jane mutual funds in his company retirement plan.
As soon as he explained his journey, I just knew I had to share it with you.
Turning your money into life-changing wealth requires planning… for both success and failure. It also requires competent counsel – meaning somebody who will act in your best interests.
But, finding the right advisor is tough.
The Internet is filled with stories of predatory sales practices, manipulative management stories, and just plain incompetence. Chances are good you know somebody who’s had a bad experience, just like I do.
It doesn’t have to be that way, though.
There are great advisors out there if you know how to find them and which questions to ask to make sure you’re on the right track for huge profits rather than devastating losses.

Have I got something exciting for you today!
Many people are scared silly by the headlines and by the volatility we’ve seen recently. The markets are up big one day, down big the next, and then up again. It’s enough to make your head spin!
Thing is… they’re scared only because they don’t know how to navigate the chaos.
Believe it or not, this kind of volatility is tailor-made for huge, life changing profits, and I don’t mean long term investments either. I mean setting yourself up for short-term trading results that can dramatically accelerate your personal Total Wealth progress.
The kind of crazy up/down markets we see are ideal for the Unstoppable Trends we line up with and for the world’s best investment opportunities, especially when it comes to those that make the “must-have” products and services we know create huge life changing wealth.
It’s the tactics that sort out the winners from the losers.

Traders can be a rough crowd when it comes to stocks that challenge convention…
… especially for a company like Tesla Inc. (NasdaqGS:TLSA).
Team Musk is under severe pressure and, as a result, I think there’s a great trade brewing.
Tesla has never turned an annual profit, has never paid a dividend, and has racked up cumulative losses of nearly $6 billion since 2010.
Which, of course, begs the question… why is the company trading at nearly $300 a share?
Because CEO Elon Musk is a genius, a visionary, and a pied piper.
He is capable of rallying investors around his vision of the future. Just this morning, for example, Tesla “leaked” a memo outlining plans to boost Model 3 production, to add a third shift at the company’s Fremont assembly plant, and to hire roughly 400 folks a week for several weeks running. And, not surprisingly, the stock jumped in early trading.
Here’s the thing.
Like many investors, I believe he is the single most innovative and visionary executive on the planet. Even the smallest rumor that he’s interested in an idea is enough to send competitors packing.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re talking about solar power, rocket ships, or tunneling machines. If Musk is interested, you can take that to the bank. Earlier this year he stopped taking orders for a $500 flamethrower after selling 20,000 units… a flamethrower!

This week I want to talk about what’s really driving markets and how you play that for maximum profits.
Contrary to what most investors think, it’s NOT China, NOT the Fed, NOT politics, NOT Zuckerberg, and NOT even Russia.
It’s something we talk about all the time here at Total Wealth that very few investors understand but will wish they did (because it’s exactly opposite of nearly everything Wall Street wants you to believe).

When I started Total Wealth I promised you that I would cover the best companies, trends, and investment opportunities I could find. I also promised you a look at the specific tactics needed for big profits whenever I saw special situations developing.
Today, I’m going to keep that promise with a look at Tuesday’s trading and a classic chart pattern in formation that can yield big profits in the hands of those who know how to trade it.
I’m referring, of course, to the fact that markets rocketed higher following a speech on Tuesday by Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Boao Forum for Asia, in which he highlighted plans to open up the nation’s domestic economy to foreign businesses.
Specifically, Xi stated that China will increase imports, significantly lower tariffs on imported automobiles, speed up financial market development, and boost enforcement on intellectual property protection.
Strategically, we’ve got this covered, and have had it covered for a long time. If you’re just joining us – you’re in for a profitable treat!

This week’s wild trading has many investors on edge and, as you might expect, I’ve received a blizzard of questions asking everything from “Will our financial system survive this” to simply “What do I do now?”
I’ll do my best to answer every single one of ’em, but for now let’s concentrate on a few of the most commonly asked (and important) ones.

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.
I want to show you how to buy more stock without spending more money.
It’s a simple, easy to use tactic that’s ideally suited for today’s markets and, best of all, one that could lead to profits of 2,426% or more. As always, I’ve got a few examples and stocks that can help you put what you learn today into action immediately.

I recall the presentation vividly.
It was November 2007 and I was standing in front of a packed room at a really swank resort along the Mexican Riviera. Money Map Press was in its infancy and I was making my first public appearance as its Chief Investment Strategist.
The markets were rocketing higher, the money was easy, and investors were greedy.
Until I got on stage.
I dropped a financial bomb of epic proportions by telling my audience two things: 1) the rally they were counting on was about to come screeching to a halt; and, 2) they’d best shift their attention to harvesting profits.

American humorist, actor, and social commentator Will Rogers once said that “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…
… relish privacy and protest vigorously when it’s threatened, yet have voluntarily created the single largest, most accurate, and most valuable marketing databases in mankind’s history using social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.
… complain about fake news and free speech because they interfere with the freedom of individual expression, yet support censorship when it comes to views we don’t share ourselves.
… want change yet immediately seek to preserve the status quo when it happens.
… desperately seek big profits yet complain that stocks are expensive.
Dr. Art Markman, professor of Psychology and Marketing at the University of Texas at Austin, says that this is because of the way our brains process, store, and retrieve knowledge.
