When I started Total Wealth I promised you that we’d take a good hard look not only at the best investments, but also exceptional short-term trading opportunities when they arose.
Like millions of people, I followed the headlines associated with the 3.5 million-strong Women’s March protests closely. Only I wasn’t interested in the identity politics being played out on an international stage.
I was watching because protests about important issues like those the Women’s March represent herald tremendous profit potential.
Admittedly, that sounds cold but that’s very deliberate on my part. In my capacity as Chief Investment Strategist, I don’t have the luxury of taking sides. It’s my job to help you make money by navigating the events that shape our world.
That’s, after all, why we’re here.
Most people don’t think of civil unrest this way and, not surprisingly, their emotions get the better of them as a result. So they have no idea when an event like the Women’s March is a threat or an opportunity.
My goal today is to teach you how to tell the difference between simple dissent and potentially profitable anger.
[The First of Two Parts] – When I started Total Wealth, I told my publisher that I wanted plenty of “red meat” – meaning actionable information, insight and, of course, recommendations as opposed to the usual click-bait that runs rampant all over the Internet today and that you see in mainstream news rags. Anything less simply wouldn’t be acceptable.
Today I want to continue that vein of thought with a look ahead at 2017 and how I see profit plays related to each of the six Unstoppable Trends we follow developing.
As is often the case, these are opportunities other investors don’t see and simply cannot recognize ahead of time because they’re not part of the Total Wealth Family and they don’t have the advantages you do when it comes to analysis, trends, and tactics that can lead to huge profits.
So pull up a chair and grab a cup of your favorite libation…
…the profit potential is simply outrageous!
Here’s where to start.
The last eight weeks have been nothing short of exhilarating, with the Dow closing a mere 25 points away from 20,000 last week after 17 record closes and an 8% run that’s added an estimated $1.8 trillion to investors’ wallets.
“We’re running out of things that can trip us up,” noted Wunderlich Securities Chief Investment Strategist, Art Hogan in remarks made to CNBC.
It’s critical that you get this “right” because the risks of being wrong couldn’t be more costly.
You could more than triple your money with what I’m about to tell you.

Paul S. feels like a genius.
“I am absolutely bragging,” he told my research team shortly before a presentation I gave not too long ago in California. “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
…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.
Here’s how to multiply your money for retirement – in a few short years if you have to.
I hear frequently from folks who tell me they don’t have the “time” to invest, which is why they’re instinctively dismissive of anything that implies a longer term perspective.
That’s a cop-out.
Look, I get the fact that many people may not have a long time to invest and believe me when I tell you that I understand that you may not see the world the same way you did decades ago if you’re soon to retire or already retired. I don’t either.
I can help make you a millionaire if you understand the secret to the secret (of big profits).
Even if you have as little as ten years.
Here’s what most investors will never understand.
When I started Total Wealth, I promised you that I would hold nothing back when it comes to the trades, tips, and tactics needed to maximize your wealth.
Today I want to keep that promise with a look at the Lowball Order.
We’ve talked about lowball orders before, but recent events like the Brexit make it abundantly clear that we need to revisit the subject. There’s just too much opportunity being created not to!
This is a discussion you don’t want to miss because lowball orders are among the simplest yet most powerful of all the Total Wealth Tactics we have at our disposal.
Not only are they a great equalizer when it comes to taking away the advantages normally enjoyed by Wall Street’s biggest, most ruthless traders, but lowball orders allow you to buy only the stocks you want at precisely the price you want to pay.
You’re going to love how easy they are to use and just how profitable they can be under conditions that have most people cowering in fear.
As always, I’ve got a fabulous trade to get you started…
Here’s how to become a Market Master.
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 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.
A small measure of stability has returned to markets early this week after a “Brexantrum” that wiped $3 trillion from the world’s balance sheets in the worst two-day selloff of all time.
Many investors are understandably nervous about what’s next.
Chances are, the Brexit is probably not the first financial temper tantrum you’ve lived through, nor will it be the last. Getting all worked up about it just isn’t worth the aggravation.
Today we’re going to talk about why, and what you need to do to build up a profit-positioning reflex that the world’s most successful investors regard as second nature.
It’s deceptively simple, elegant, and easy to execute. What’s more, once you’ve built up the reflex I’m going to talk about today, you’ll know how to immediately position yourself for profits the next time markets pitch a fit.
And, have a HUGE advantage over other investors.
Microsoft announced Monday that it was buying LinkedIn for a staggering $26.2 billion, and Twitter jumped as high as 4.57% through mid-day trading on nothing more than the hope that the beleaguered media company would be next.
Individual investors and analysts alike believe that the deal will lead to more high profile social media acquisitions.
Don’t bet on it.
Twitter is still a dog and has been for a long time. What’s more, Microsoft has a long history of overpaying for… well… just about everything.
Today we’re going to talk about what’s really driving the Microsoft buy and how to handle Twitter if you’re tempted to pile on.
I just about fell out of bed this morning when I rolled over to scan the first of hundreds of headlines I look at when my day starts, and saw this from IBTimes:
…”Hope Is Not A Strategy” For Twitter
Not that I’m surprised somebody else finally caught on and called the one-time media darling for what it is, only that it’s taken so long for everybody to glom on to what we’ve been discussing since the company IPO’d, in 2013… and used almost the exact language I have to describe the situation since.
But, there’s something else you should know.
It’s a shocking “secret” that most investors will never understand: the numbers have never lied, and when it comes to much bally-hooed companies like Twitter, they never do.
That’s what we’re going to talk about today.
As always, I’m going to give you a viable alternative and suggestions on the tactics you need to make the jump.
Millions of people are following the waves of demonstrations going on across America right now with feelings that range from disgust to solidarity. But there’s another reason to follow them closely.
A few – a precious few – herald tremendous profit potential.
That’s what we’re going to talk about today.
I promised to keep you ahead of the curve when I started Total Wealth – and certainly ahead of Wall Street.
Frankly, it’s why you’re here, and I take that responsibility very, very seriously. We’ve had a great run together and it’s something I hope to continue for years to come.
Some opportunities represent big sweeping changes in the global environment. Those are typically oriented around our Unstoppable Trends.
For example, I helped readers beat legendary trader George Soros, David Einhorn’s Greenlight Capital, and Kyle Bass’s Hayman Capital Management, LP to a trade against the yen by a full eight months back in 2013, more than doubling the returns that hedge fund heavyweights used to net at least $1 billion, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Other profitable plays I share with you are driven by a mix of tactics and headlines.
For instance, I led readers to Raytheon Co. (NYSE:RTN), and to specialized defense contractors a full year before they became a hot trade in the mainstream press. Anybody following along had the opportunity to capture triple-digit gains.
But occasionally there are trades that are so far off the radar that almost nobody but us sees ’em coming.
And that’s precisely what I’ve got on tap for you today.
Once again we’re in great company, with even greater profit potential.
I’m used to giving tough presentations, but last week’s took the cake when I was asked to frame my delivery around something that’s on many investors’ minds at the moment…
…how to invest for big profits when the smartest guys in the room are wrong
There’s no doubt the “guys in the room are wrong” when you look at the mess central bankers around the world have created in their rush to stimulate the world’s economy.
Nearly every central banker around the world has his or her hands in the proverbial cookie jar at the moment. Together they’ve injected an estimated $8 trillion into the world’s markets with more on the way according to The Wall Street Journal. Yet, the IMF recently made headlines for downgrading global growth to a mere 3.2%??!!
If central bankers actually knew what they were doing and stimulus actually worked, the world’s economy would be screaming along at 7% a year and there’d be more jobs than workers. Wages would be rising and there’d be a housing market that would make even the Kardashians blink.
That’s obviously not happening. Trying the same tired old tactics and expecting different results is a fool’s errand. And that means you’ve got to invest accordingly.
That’s what we’re going to talk about today and, as always, I’ve got an investment choice to get you started that’s perfectly suited for today’s markets.
I got an interesting letter from a reader the other day – Rogan – who wanted to thank me for consistently driving home the point that you must take emotion out of investing if you want to be successful.
“That’s made a huge difference not only in my investment returns but also in my life in general. If you don’t like something, don’t support it with your spending dollars… but that doesn’t mean you can’t profit off it with your investment dollars!”
And he’s right.
