Month: May 2020

The Real Reason the Market Is Rising Right Now

At the beginning of the month, we talked about a long-term strategy called sell in May and go away.

But as you know, we’re in unprecedented times. And many want to know if this pattern still holds true.

If you look simply on the surface, May has turned out to be the market’s best month in a while – the Dow and the S&P just hit their highest levels since March, in fact.

But today, I want to talk about more than just the numbers. We’re going to dig a little bit deeper…

Let’s talk about exactly what happened in May, what it is that’s pushing the market higher, and the market’s top 10 performers right now.

Five Factors to Predict Where This “House of Cards” Market is Headed

Times are weird.

That might be the understatement of the decade, but it’s true.

I don’t remember what it’s like to eat at a restaurant. I’ve adjusted to slippers being part of my work attire. Every time I watch T.V. and I see characters open a door without a squirt of Purell afterwards, I cringe just a little.

These are unprecedented times for everybody, including us traders.

Back when COVID-19 caused the market to tank 35% back in March of this year, big companies faltered, and nobody knew what was going to happen.

After the dust settled, a new sector of “stay-at-home” stocks rose like a phoenix from the ashes. In fact, on Monday, the Dow index had its best day in over a month, soaring over 900 points before market close.

But it has everybody asking one question: Is it a good time to buy stocks?

And I have the answer for you.

The Top Three Market Charts to Watch Right Now

China’s oil demand is back. Powell is “easing into easing.” And Congress is talking about a potential $3 trillion more in stimulus.

These three stories hit the market hard Monday morning, propelling the S&P 500 3% higher at the open.

Clearly, investors are feeling optimistic. But there’s more to the story than these three headlines…

See, I’m watching something a whole lot more reliable than the talking heads on the financial news networks.

Instead, I’m watching three important charts – and they’re telling me even more about what’s to come in this market.
These are the top charts you should be paying attention to…

This Generation’s “Dot-Com” Era is Here – And it’s Your Time to Profit

For the past three months in Power Profit Trader, we’ve talked about the stock market plummeting, unemployment hitting record highs, and different strategies we can use to get our portfolios stable again.

But we never really touched on how the access of information is affecting the market.

If this pandemic happened two decades ago, you would be getting the news from the daily paper that landed on the doorstep first thing in the morning, the 5 o’clock broadcast, or you waited on the dial-up internet.

I mean, this morning when I woke up, I grabbed my coffee and scrolled through my favorite sites for market updates, I read the news, checked social media – all in a span of a few minutes.

And I can rinse and repeat this all day long – 24-hour news in the palm of my hand.

I can still remember the first time I called a friend from my cell phone asking for directions back in 1988 – and that’s all it could do. It was a phone that was roughly the size and weight of a brick that just made calls (that were usually dropped, if I might add).

Just for reference, it looked a little something like this

The Safest Long-Term Play to Look at Right Now

We’ve officially entered what I like to call the “post-coronavirus recovery.”

I know, I know – stocks fell yesterday. The Dow ended the day over 100 points lower, in fact.

But since the end of March, we’ve seen four moves to the upside.

Now, these moves have been welcome changes after we saw the market crash, erasing all gains it had made for the year in just a couple of weeks.

But one indicator is telling us that the upward movement may not be here to stay.

It’s hard to make a long-term play when all signs point downward for the near future – but there’s one play that you can take right now that doesn’t involve stocks at all – and it could hand you 10 times your money.

This is one of the safest places to put your money for the long-term right now…

The Best Way to Play the Most Important Earnings Season in History

Now that the seasons are changing and it’s getting warm, people would typically be packing bags to hop on a flight or grabbing their sunscreen and heading to the next cruise destination.

Queue the recent headlines, coming in like a lightning-fast wrecking ball:

“Oil prices turned negative. Hundreds of US oil companies could go bankrupt”

“Norwegian Cruise Lines has ‘substantial’ doubt about surviving amid COVID-19.”

“Automakers are Extending Production Shutdown into April, May”

Instead, the coronavirus has taken hold of summer plans, and people are stuck hunkered down at home – not traveling, not running to the mall to shop, and certainly not using the gas in their cars to do either.

It’s a tough time for businesses in general. Even “too big to fail” businesses in the oil, travel, and commerce industries aren’t being spared from the bloodbath.

And there’s one other event that isn’t doing them any favors…

Earnings season.

The next two weeks have the potential to completely rock the market – but this volume play could help you turn that volatility into fast profits.

You see, this isn’t just any earnings season… this has the potential to be the worst one we’ve ever seen.

In the history of the stock market, there has never been a better time to trade an earnings season… and I have the tools to do it successfully.

The Coronavirus Stole Trillions – Here’s How You Can Make It All Back

Since the coronavirus first began its rampant spread across the globe, Americans alone have lost $7.3 trillion in wealth.

The numbers we’ve seen drained from portfolios are completely unprecedented.

It’s a financial crisis no one could have seen coming.

But on Thursday, I’m going to show you how you can make all of your money back – and then some.

It’s simple. Markets have been driven up and down, up and down, in what can only be compared to a roller coaster ride.

It might be a cliché, but hey – it’s true. And as fear spreads through the markets like a contagion itself, volatility is hitting all-time highs…

Giving traders like you the chance to collect dozens of fast double- and triple-your-money paydays.

The strategy I’m going to tell you about on thursday thrives on chaos. And if I could describe the market we’re looking at today in one word, it would be “chaotic.”

But it’s about to get even crazier.

Earnings season is here. And with the U.S. economy essentially on lockdown, companies are releasing some of their worst reports in history…

Turning this earnings season into potentially one of the biggest catalysts the market has ever seen.

If you want to learn how to harness the unprecedented volatility and use it to your wallet’s advantage, then be sure to keep a close eye on your inbox.

One of the oldest adages in the stock market states: Sell in May and go away.

I’m big on historical strategies like this one. But you know what I like even more?

Proving them wrong.

Sure, stocks don’t tend to gain as much in the period from May 1 – October 31.

But just because stocks aren’t growing doesn’t mean our profits can’t.

In this video, I’m going to show you the single strategy that will guide our trading over the next month – and for the rest of the “Halloween Indicator” period

Live at 11 AM: The Real Reason Behind April’s Bullish Jump

First-quarter gross domestic product (GDP) fell at a 4.5% annual rate during the first quarter. A record 30 million people have filed initial unemployment claims over the past six weeks. Major companies like Delta Air Lines Inc. (NYSE: DAL), McDonald’s Corp. (NYSE: MCD), and SoftBank Group Corp. (SFTBY) have released their worst earnings reports in years.

According to the Federal Reserve, this is the worst economy in history.

Yet the Dow just finished one of its best months since 1987, the S&P 500 since 1974.

On the surface, the bullishness we saw in April doesn’t make sense. But when you dig deeper, the reasons are clear – and so is the future.
