Economists have forecast some dire statistics created by the COVID-19 pandemic that brought the U.S. and global commerce to a virtual standstill, including:
- U.S. GDP growth may very well contract by 50%, a contraction not seen since the Great Depression.
- Unemployment peaked at 14.7%, and it’s currently 11.1% and will average 9.3% for 2020.
- Inflation will average .8% in 2020 and rise to 1.6% in 2021.
It’s clear that the U.S. economy is hurting and will continue to hurt until COVID-19 is contained.
With the close approaching presidential election and this historic earnings season, we could be one news story, one tweet, or one poor bellwether company earnings announcement away from a major correction.
In short, there is volatility on the table and we’re just a heartbeat away from another market crash.
Now, this sounds bad on the surface, but this is a great opportunity for traders.
If and when we get this correction, those positioned to profit will profit big.
And I am going to show you one play to lock in double-your-money gains right now… …
The S&P 500 has skyrocketed 49% over the past four months, and the Nasdaq just set an all-time high of 11,069 on July 13, surging 63% over the same period.
This is after both indices crashed 35% and 30% respectively this past February and March on the dawning of the coronavirus pandemic.
With these massive bounce backs in the market, it’s clear that traders are greedily buying stock – but there are several factors that we need to take a look at that show that the economy is telling a different story…
- The U.S. unemployment rate has surged to 11.1%.
- Over 10,000 U.S. retail stores have closed in 2020.
- Bankruptcies are spiking, including from big names like Hertz Global Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HTZ) and JC Penney Company Inc (NYSE: JCP).
- The U.S.-China trade relationship is deteriorating.
- The Federal government is taking on huge amounts of stimulus package debt.
- The presidential election is three months away.
- Coronavirus cases are rising.
Any one of these conditions has the potential to tank the market, and investors are asking one big question: “Can it last?”
With the catalysts above, this market high will be short-lived.
(That’s why fast-cash strategies are so important right now – and this trading technique is producing some of the quickest profit opportunities I’ve ever seen.)
Now, even if the market does crash, you don’t have to say goodbye to your hard-earned cash. I have three strategies you can use to weather out the storm that’s brewing…
And you can make money while you use them.
Here are three strategies to hedge your portfolio before the market tanks again…
July is quickly coming to an end – and I’m seeing a whole lot of red.
No, I’m not talking about my car’s temperature gauge or gnarly sunburns from the mid-summer sweltering heat.
I’m talking about the market.
We are in the midst of one of the most important earnings seasons to date as the economy is starting to pick back up.
See, the coronavirus continues to heavily impact revenue across the globe – meaning companies’ reports are coming in at a critical time.
Companies’ reports are coming at a critical time, seeing as we’re still in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic that is heavily impacting revenue across the globe.
The pandemic left 147 million people unemployed, which ultimately resulted in $2.1 trillion in lost income. Yet, the Nasdaq just hit an all-time high of 11,069.
Bottom line: There will be volatility in the coming weeks – and where there’s volatility, there’s opportunity. There are tons of gains on the table for your taking.
Today, I’m going to show you a strategy that allows you to secure profits no matter what direction stocks move this earning season.

Yesterday marked an important day in the market – stocks finally turned positive for 2020.
Back in March, when stocks were crashing and circuit breakers were hit, many investors struggled to see this day through the money-draining mania.
But yesterday, we were there…
Until we weren’t.
By closing bell, the S&P and the Nasdaq had turned negative. The Dow was up a mere 22 points. And once again, we were reminded of just how unpredictable the market can be.
That’s why I wanted to share an exclusive video from my Youtube account, Tom’s Trading Room, with you today.
I kicked the week off with this video yesterday. You see, with the markets moving this fast, it’s important to take a step back. Because the only indication we have of the future is the past – as a pattern trader, I know that first hand.
And some of the biggest market moves come from the FAANGs – Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google.
To see exactly what you can expect from FAANG this week, click here…
If you could create your dream portfolio, I bet that I could guess the top stocks that you’d be banking on to hand you your nest egg — Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX), Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB), Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL).
These are the biggest stocks in the world, and they all have one major thing in common…
GOOGL is currently trading for $1,489 per share, and AMZN is sitting at $3,000 a share!
And for most traders, it’s just not worth it to see gains of 10%, 15%, or 20%.
But I have news for you… it’s possible to rent these high-fliers for pennies on the dollar and double your money. And it’s much faster than buying the stock and waiting for years.
Today, I’m going to show you how to do just that with a jewel of the car industry… and by jewel, I mean a serious profit player.
This company shot up 42% in the past week. (And this is one of the fastest ways to bank a potential profit on the upside.)
Here are four strategies to play this lucrative stock, each one better than the next…
The Fourth of July may be over – but the profit potential that the holiday brings is just getting started.
See, today I want to tell you about one of the most lucrative patterns the market has to offer…
The holiday pattern.
I follow 10 holidays throughout the year that close the market for trading. And I’ve found that buying a stock or exchange-traded fund (ETF) before a holiday and selling it after is a proven strategy when it comes to playing this pattern.
And Independence Day brings one of the most accurate patterns of the year.
But in order to discover the best time to buy and sell, we need to look at backtested results.
Now that the market has reopened, here’s exactly how to harness the Fourth of July’s profit potential…
The coronavirus has left 13.3% of people in the U.S. without jobs. Retail spending is down about 8% compared to pre-pandemic times. Earnings from big-name companies like Nike and Costco have missed already-low expectations.
Yet, in the face of these stats, the stock market has been rising.
Since its March low, the Dow Jones and S&P have risen about 37%. The Nasdaq is at an all-time high, up 45%.
The V-shaped bounce off of these lows has been completely unprecedented. But stocks aren’t the only asset investors are flocking to…
On Monday, pending home sales for May were released. Coming in at a whopping 44.3% spike, the number overtook the 15% expectation, making for the largest one-month jump in history.
In the face of low economic numbers, real estate, just like stocks, is surging. Realtor.com reports that over the course of 2020, inventory has declined by 15.7%, all while average listing prices rose 3.8% – both indications of a market in high-demand.
But you don’t have to buy property to invest in the real estate sector. (Check out these tiny currencies – they’re changing the industry as we know it.)
Here’s how to take advantage of the real estate boom… without touching an inch of land…
