How to always know whether to be bullish, bearish or in cash

The two most important questions you should ask your financial advisor (or yourself if you manage your own capital), are:

1) Will you change how you manage my money in a bear market as opposed to a bull market? and

2) How, specifically, will you know when the next bear market has begun?


During the presentation,  Mike will show you how to know the best time to get into and out of the market; how to NEVER FEAR a bear market and how know when to be a bull, a bear or wait on the sidelines… and NEVER GUESS whether you should be in or out of the market.  You will learn why you should never let yourself get talked into the high-risk buy-and-hold investment mentality.  I will show you the right way to invest in the stock market and why you can look forward to both bull and bear markets without taking on undue risk. You will learn how to always know whether to be bullish, bearish or in cash… always!

Do you find yourself guessing about what the market is going to do in the future?  What is North Korea going to do? What is Trump going to do? What will the Fed do next? Will the tax plan get through Congress?  Will it work?  What is going to happen to the dollar? Will we be attacked by terrorists? A correction is long overdue, so should I hedge my bets in the market? Will the next correction be a buying opportunity or the precursor to something worse?  Is now the time to sit on cash or be fully invested?  You hear forecasts and talking heads giving one opinion after another… they are ALL guessing.  No one knows the future, but that does not mean you have to guess one way or the other.  I will show you how to follow my “Three Immutable Laws of Investing” and never have to guess what the market is going to do.  I will show you why Jack Bogle, Jeremy Siegel, Mark Skousen and Warren Buffett (along with virtually all asset managers) try to talk you into one of the riskiest investment strategies ever created: buy-and-hold.  I will also show you why trying to time market tops and bottoms is a fool’s game.  The financial world wants you to think there are only two choices: buy-and-hold or market-timing.  There is a far, far better, safer and more profitable way to invest in the stock market (and, no, it’s not options, futures, FOREX or… shudder… annuities).  Spend an evening with me and I will change the way you think about, and invest in, the stock market forever.  I will show you how to consistently measure the market and position your holdings accordingly so that you will always be on the right side of the market and never get caught unprepared in the next bear market. The process I will show you is not magic, and it is not opinion. It is math, rules, and discipline. You will learn how to never fear putting your money to work in the stock market and always know when to be bullish, in cash, or bearish.
