Preparing for the 2019 Bear Market

Get Paid When the Market Tumbles

Panic.

It’s the worst thing about my job.

The market cools off, valuations deflate, and my inbox gets overwhelmed with folks who are in full panic mode, wanting to know, “What do I do?”

I don’t mean to sound brash, but if you freak out every time stocks sell off, you should just stop investing right now. Otherwise, you’re going to make yourself crazy, and you’ll likely end up acting on emotion instead of common sense.

Yes, the market got hit hard in December. And market uncertainty is likely to weigh on investors as we head into 2019.

Geopolitical unrest, the expansion of trade wars, and the very real possibility that the Trump administration will collapse on itself in the coming year should have every investor on his toes and thinking three steps ahead.

Understand, I don’t say these things to scare you or to be a fear monger. I simply present these realities to you so you can best prepare to both protect and build your wealth in 2019.

There’s always a way to make a buck

I’m not saying we’re on a crash course for another recession.

But the reality is that we’ve enjoyed a very long and fruitful bull market. And it has to end sometime.

Whether it ends because of the organic nature of market ebbs and flows or because the world is about to get smacked in the face with a major crisis, you have to be prepared for all that comes with market disruptions.

One thing I like to do in times like these is use a short ETF, such as the ProShares Short Dow30 (NYSE: DOG), as a hedge against a major market downturn.

I’ve also recently unloaded a number of stocks, as I’m moving into a cash-hoarding phase. Because make no mistake: When the market does bottom out, I’m going on a buying spree. The silver lining to any market correction is the bargains it leaves in its wake.

Of course, bear markets can also present amazing opportunities for traders.

In fact, it was right after the 2007/2008 meltdown that I made some of the most profitable trades of my life. I’m talking about double- and triple-digit gains in a matter of days.

Interestingly, I actually did this very thing a couple weeks ago.

It was on December 6 that I told members of my Green Chip Stocks community to buy shares of 1933 Industries (OTCBB: TGIFF) at $0.27.

The next day, the stock hit $0.33, and we unloaded our position for a 22.2% gain.

Most folks can’t pull off a 22% gain in an entire year, yet we did it in just two days.

We’ll actually be offering more opportunities to get in on these kinds of trades next month. You can get some of this action, too, by becoming a member today.

And if you want to know my strategy for landing these types of gains, I’ve laid out the whole thing in this report.

The bottom line is that no matter what’s happening in the market, there’s always a way to make money. And if you play your cards right, you can even make more money during a bear market than you can during a bull market.

So if you’re ready to not just protect your wealth in 2019 but create even more wealth, click here now.

To a new way of life and a new generation of wealth...
