6 Bearish Trades to Hedge Against an Upcoming Market Sell-Off

In the last nine months of 2020, stocks rallied an impressive 72%.

But on the first trading day of the new year, the S&P 500 tanked 2.8% -the worst yearly start in the past two decades.

Ongoing vaccine distribution, a presidential inauguration, the uncertainty of the U.S. Senate… these early 2021 events are pumping volatility into the new year’s market.

Monday’s trading activity is a perfect reminder that the market can’t run up forever.

A correction is coming. And many investors are struggling to protect their portfolios.

But listen up – volatility isn’t scary. Movement like this is exactly what we need to make this year a winning one.

Why protect yourself from a pullback when you can take advantage of it?

See, I have a plan to cash in on a red market. And today, I’m going to share it with you.

These six bearish opportunities will put you in a profit-taking position when the market’s next sell-off hits…


What to Expect from the Market’s 11 Sectors in 2021

2020 was home to market moves that no one could have anticipated.

I’m talking about the market’s circuit breakers being triggered four times in one month.

I’m talking about the S&P rising double digits for the year.

I’m talking about the index’s 60%-plus gain since March.

It was a year stocked with surprises. But we aren’t going to let 2021 do the same.

Today, I’m going to take you through the market’s 11 sectors – and show you exactly what to expect from each this year…

Plus, how to play these sectors for long-term profits.

Healthcare, consumer staples, energy – you name it. I’m explaining my expert outlook on every sector in the market.

Don’t let this year take advantage of you. Turn the tables. You can learn how to take advantage of 2021.

Make 2021 Your Richest Year Yet with This Monthly Profit Play

Every year, on December 31, one of my favorite long-term trading strategies is revealed.

It’s called the “Dogs of the Dow,” and over the past 20 years, it has averaged 10% returns – that’s over the course of the dot-com bust, the 2008 financial crisis, and, yes, the 2020 global pandemic.

On the last trading day of the year, we find the 10 stocks with the highest dividend yields – and typical “Dogs of the Dow” traders will add these stocks to their portfolio, taking the dividend payments all year long.

That’s a good strategy, sure. But I play the Dogs of the Dow a little bit differently – and with my way, you’re making more than 10% per year.

See, with this unique strategy, you can spend 2021 collecting cash every single month.

This year, “add historical gains to my portfolio” should be at the top of your resolutions list – and we can cross that off all by trading the Dogs of the Dow like this…


Three Coins with Triple-Digit Gain Potential by February

At the end of 2019, I predicted that Bitcoin (BTC) would hit $20K by the end of 2020.

Back then, that was a bold prediction…

That’s when Warren Buffet was calling cryptocurrency a “mirage,” warning people to stay away.

JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon called the market’s top coin a “scam” and a “fraud.” He even said if he found out one of his employees was investing in Bitcoin, he’d fire them on grounds of stupidity.

Since then, Buffett has sat down for lunch with the TRON microcurrency founder Justin Sun.

JPMorgan has admitted that “the potential long-term upside for Bitcoin is considerable.”

And in November 2020, BTC hit $20K – just as I predicted.


This Tesla Trade Has a 96.8% Profit Probability – by Christmas Eve

Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) has spent the majority of the year hitting all-time highs.

The electric vehicle maker was set to be added to the S&P 500 after Friday’s closing bell. And in anticipation, the stock continued clamoring up, hitting a record high of $695 at the end of last week.

That’s a massive, 708% gain year-to-date. Get this – at the beginning of 2020, TSLA sat at a measly $86 per share.

To see how crazy TSLA’s ride has been this year, just look at it compared to the past three


Four Companies Pushing the Cannabis Market Toward a 500% Jump

Today, we are going to get real about pot.

See, pot stocks have been around since medical legalization first began. And I’ve had a few in my own portfolio for the past several years. But right now, these stocks are on fire like never before.

Since February, U.S. stocks associated with pot have risen over 40%. Many are hitting new all-time highs as I type – and those that aren’t are well on their way.

Right now, pot stocks are home to some of the highest profit potential the market has to offer.

35 states and D.C. have legalized medical marijuana. And 15 of those states – plus D.C. – legally sell recreational marijuana as well.

One of those states is Michigan – and in just 12 months, the state’s cannabis industry secured $440 million in sales. Learn about the company accountable for 12% of Michigan’s cannabis sales right here.

The legalized cannabis market hit $13.6 billion in 2019. I never thought I’d refer to a number that big as “nothing,” but believe me – $13.6 billion is nothing compared to what’s coming.

The market is estimated to explode six-fold in the next 10 years. That means by 2030, we could be looking at an $80 billion-plus cannabis market.

And today, I’m going to show you how you can take a chunk of that change.

It’s time to get into the cannabis market now, so that you can take advantage of the 500% jump later.

Here are the top four cannabis names you’ll want to take a look at right now


Trade Tesla for at Least $1,000 by Friday with This Neutral Strategy

In the past month, Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) has gone from around $400 per share to over $600 per share.

That’s a 50% gain in as little as 30 days. And in the same amount of time, it’s handed option traders 1000%-plus gains – call worth $20 in mid-November is worth $200 today!

And there’s even more coming for TSLA

At the sound of Friday’s closing bell, the electric automaker will be added to the S&P 500 in what’s sure to be a historic day for the markets.

See, the heaviest days of trading tend to be on the days of major index rebalancing like we’ll see this week. Meaning TSLA‘s headline-making days are far from over.

The question is – where do we go from here? Is TSLA‘s inclusion in the S&P a sell-the-news event, or is the stock set to go even higher from here?

Well, the answer doesn’t matter. Not if you’re using the strategy I’m going to show you today, anyways.

This strategy isn’t bullish or bearish. It’s neutral, and it has a sky-high probability of profit.

Plus, it has the potential to hand you at least $1,000 by Friday.

I’ll break down this trade in the video below. Check it out


This Pattern Made 50% in One Day Last Month. Tomorrow, It Starts Again

Tomorrow marks the start of one of the most lucrative patterns the market has to offer.

See, December 11th is the ninth trading day of the month – and this mid-month period of time is a breeding ground for profits.

It’s called the mid-month, or 9-11, pattern.

Since 1980, money has tended to flow into the markets pretty heavily in the middle of the month. And that heaviest flow of that cash tends to occur over the 9th, 10th, and 11th trading days.

It seems pretty simple, right?

Get into the market before this cash flow happens – and get out afterwards, taking a piece of that money for yourself.

But you can’t just simply pour cash into any stock you want.

There’s only one way to play this pattern for a shot at big money and fast returns. Last month, in fact, this strategy gave this group of readers the chance to turn a 2% stock gain into a 50% profit in just one day.

And that’s a return we expect to see again this time around, as bullishness continues to make its way through the market.

Here’s the best way to play December’s mid-month pattern


Play the “Santa Claus Rally” to Score 150% in the First Week of 2021

We’re just a few weeks away from the start of this year’s Santa Claus rally – And I’m not talking about the mythical, jolly man putting presents under the tree.

The Santa Claus rally is real – and there are 74 years’ worth of statistics to prove it.

In almost every December since 1945, the S&P 500 rose nearly 1.5% — advancing in price 73% of the time.

This movement sets the market up for a pattern that I look forward to every year – and this year comes as no exception.

The Santa Claus rally extends from the first trading day after Christmas to the second trading day of the new year – December 28, 2020 to January 5, 2021 – and it’s shown time and time again to be profitable.

This year, in fact, I’ve discovered a trade with the potential to return 150% before the new year is a week old.

You can thank Santa’s Christmas-spun market rally for this one…
