In 2020, the whole world was in crisis mode...
COVID-19 was running rampant, economies were shutting down, and the death toll was mounting. On top of it all, there was misinformation from just about every government agency.
No one knew what was going on. No one knew the best way to protect themselves and their loved ones.
Remember when people were advised to put their groceries in the garage for three days before taking them into the house... Or how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ("CDC") did an abrupt 180 on masks, suddenly recommending them after insisting for weeks they were only necessary in health care settings.
To say it was a confusing time is the understatement of the century.
Of course, investors were also in a state of shock.
The S&P 500 Index fell 34% from February 19 to March 23, 2020. And despite what you hear from many marketing departments, most investors were terrified to "buy the dip."
There was a real possibility that stocks could fall another 10% or 20% as the economy was in a standstill. The majority of folks were hiding in cash.
In April, fund managers were holding the highest percentage of cash since the 2001 recession. They were terrified. They were playing it safe.
Even as markets rallied in April and May, very few people were buying. I (Jeff Havenstein) heard the term "bear market rally" more times than I can recount. Most experts were advising to brace for more pain ahead.
But not everyone was terrified...
A small group of traders were able to put cash to work in March 2020 and in the months to come.
They didn't have any more insight into COVID-19 than anyone else... or know the market was about to experience one of the greatest rebounds of all time.
Instead, they had a tried-and-true strategy that works in volatile markets. They were able to actually turn the fear that was suffocating most investors into upfront cash payments.
This group of traders made money in March, April, and May.
They then went on to make money from May to December 2020. As the markets continued higher in 2021, they continued to make money.
And even though 2022 has been a terrible year for stocks – the market is down 20% year to date – these traders made money.
In fact, it has been exactly 900 days since they have lost money.
Now, I'm a skeptic just like I assume most of you are. When I hear something that is too good to be true, it's usually because it is.
I can tell you this group of traders won 94% of their trades since 2010...
This strategy is not perfect, of course. There will be times you lose money. Nothing in finance is ever bulletproof.
The strategy, which Doc Eifrig has perfected over the years, is simple and easy to learn. I encourage all who are afraid of today's market to give it a chance.
This is one of the only strategies I know that thrives in times of chaos.
Doc and his subscribers just recently closed out their 140th consecutive winning trade, a streak that began in early 2020. And to celebrate the accomplishment, until this Friday, Doc will be offering a fantastic deal to try his strategy out.
To learn more about this strategy and how to receive Doc's generous offer, you can click here. Again, this offer will expire in just a few days. (Plus, the video is just 10 minutes long.)
What We're Reading...
- You don't need to leave your groceries in the garage for three days.
- The CDC needs to admit its COVID-19 mistakes.
- Something different: Elon Musk has pulled more than 50 Tesla employees into his Twitter takeover.
Here's to our health, wealth, and a great retirement,
