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.

The Only Way to Predict the FAANG Stocks’ Next Move

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.

This Auto Stock Is Up 242% – Here’s How to Play It

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),, 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…

They’re expensive.

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…

Independence Day Just Unearthed One of the Year’s Most Profitable Patterns

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…

How to Invest in Real Estate – Without Buying Property

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. 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

Facebook Just Flipped This Age-Old Trading Adage Upside Down

It’s the saying ingrained in traders’ brains from the moment they first look at the market:

Buy the rumor, sell the news.

Essentially, the old adage means that you should buy a stock before the company makes an official announcement and sell it when the news goes public. It allows you to take advantage of the big money.

But a recent move from social media giant Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) is flipping that saying on its head…

See, big-name advertisers are pulling out of FB left and right, sending shares on an 11% plunge in just two trading days.

But FB is the biggest social media company in the world. It will solve this problem – and it’ll come back shining like never before.

So today, we’re reversing everything you know to be true – we’re selling the rumor, and buying the news.

This is the best way to play FB right now…

Three Ways to Profit Off the Ecommerce Boom Right Now

Only four months ago, social distancing were two words we’d never heard of. Now, those 16 letters just about run our lives.

The new status quo isn’t just keeping us from going to concerts or visiting Grandma – it’s affecting everything, right down to the way we shop.

Personally, I always dreaded going to the grocery store. And once the pandemic hit, and shelves were nearly empty? Forget about it!

I’m not the only one either. Many are choosing to stay home and shop online – and one industry is absolutely booming as a result.

While overall U.S. retail sales plummeted as a result of the coronavirus, falling 16% in a single month for a record drop, ecommerce sales are expected to rise 18% in 2020, according to a recent forecast by eMarketer.

Since lockdown restrictions were relaxed, coronavirus cases have dramatically spiked around the world. Seven U.S. states, in fact, just reported their highest coronavirus hospitalizations since the pandemic began. And the CDC warns that this number will skyrocket once the summer is over.

The ecommerce industry is on fire, and it’s only going to get hotter.

Here are three ways to capitalize on one of the hottest industry trends in decades

Reading Your Account Balance: An Important Trading Lesson

Keeping an eye on your account balance is a crucial part of trading.

Before you place any trade, you should know how it will affect your account – it’s all part of rules-based trading.

This was made clear last week in a terrible tragedy involving a young trader that I want to talk about today.

Before you watch, know that this is a heartbreaking story – one in which an incorrect account balance led to an absolute tragedy.

That’s why, in today’s video, I want to show you exactly how to read your account balance when placing trades.

Two Simple Trading Rules You Should Never Break

A lot of people are scared of trading the market.

They think of it like gambling or sports betting – once you lose your luck, you lose your money.

And the truth is that many people aren’t successful as traders. In fact, today, I’m going to tell you about two traders that lost their life savings on a single trade.

But that’s not because of bad luck.

It’s because they didn’t follow two simple rules.

(After a devastating four-month losing streak, this man became a multimillionaire just two years later. And he has this “insiders-trading” strategy to thank.)

See, trading is easy. But those that simply follow their gut and trade like they’re “betting on the black” will end up losing it all sooner or later.

But that’s not going to be you. You can trade your way to millions of dollars, financial security, the life of your dreams…

You just need to follow these two rules. They can turn any novice trader into a successful one…

Four Fast-Profit Strategies to Play an Uncertain Market

There’s an old adage that says “the market hates uncertainty.” Well, let’s see…

We’ve got a worsening global pandemic with no proven treatment or vaccine, record levels of unemployment in the U.S., and now widespread civil unrest.

And how did the market react? It rose over 47% from the March 23 lows.

Clearly, the market is not acting rationally. And that’s because the market is not a rational thing.

The massive amount of stimulus money being pumped into the economy, combined with optimism for a post-coronavirus recovery, has the market back within striking distance of all-time highs.

It’s times like these – with the economy and the market so obviously heading in different directions – when traders and investors can be tempted to take their profits and head for the sidelines.

But that’s exactly the opposite of what you should be doing.

In an unpredictable market like this, the profit opportunity is there – you just need to be able to jump on it fast, before stocks change direction yet again.

And these four lightning-fast strategies are the quickest way to turn a profit right now…
