The Dow is off 160 points as I write Monday on fears that higher oil prices will stunt global growth.
The real reason is something far more basic.
Let’s talk about that today and how you can profit.
I can’t help but be shaken by what’s happening in Hong Kong, even though U.S. markets have largely shaken off the rioting, chaos, and police action there so far. You see, I recall Tiananmen Square in 1989 vividly and fear that Beijing may be approaching another Tiananmen Square moment.
A 2.0 situation really.
Westerners believe that Beijing won’t risk the reputational hit that goes with armed intervention, but I beg to differ. Nobody thought that in 1989 when protestors took over Tiananmen Square either.
Beijing’s calculus is different for reasons I noted on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co. this past Wednesday during a special phone interview. Worse, Beijing may prefer violence to the perception of political weakness or territorial rights.
Very few people understand what I am about to tell you… and that’s why it’s absolutely crucial that you pay attention or risk being on the wrong side an opportunity lurking unseen below the surface.
