How to Be the Investor Who Makes Money in All Markets

We invest to make money. At the very least, we invest to protect our purchasing power against inflation. (Earning 0.5% in a savings account just doesn’t do much.)

And of course, more than anything, we don’t want to lose money.

Special Q&A: Last Night’s Trading Master Class

Last night, I aired my first ever Trading Master Class.

Thousands of people watched while I taught real readers – like you – my strategy that is designed to transform any stock into a potential triple-digit winner in a matter of just a few weeks.

How Does a Bond Investor Make 264% a Year?

The “Bond God” loves to make predictions…

Jeffrey Gundlach, founder of the $120 billion-plus investment firm DoubleLine Capital, is one of Wall Street’s biggest winners.

‘I Should Have Done More’

Nobody wants to think about the bad times.

The widespread layoffs and job losses and the hopeless look in good employees’ eyes. Formerly steady companies going bankrupt, seemingly overnight, because they took on too much debt or expanded too quickly. Huge one-day drops in the market, egged on by a panicking and discredited financial press.

Most people simply accept that a “bear market” doesn’t begin until the market is down 20% or more.

But if you start fiddling with charts and spreadsheets, you’ll find that popular definition isn’t worth much. After all, is it only 20% from an all-time high? That’s not very useful in a period like the one after 2009, when stocks took nearly a decade to reach new highs.

How to Get a Leg Up in Investing
