Well, it’s official… Inflation hit a 40-year high.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics released its Consumer Price Index (CPI) results on Thursday. The CPI is a broad measure of inflation. And it registered a 7.5% annual gain in January… the fastest rise since 1982.

Predictably, the market dropped 4% shortly after the news (but has since recovered). And the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) – Wall Street’s so-called fear gauge – spiked 11% to 22.1.

A VIX reading below 20 means investors are calm and complacent. While a reading above 20 means investors are fearful and nervous about the market.

If you’re concerned about the markets… we can’t blame you. Many investors are seeing their losses accumulate.

That’s why this past week, we shared several strategies to protect your portfolio from volatility. (You can catch up on them in the roundup below.)

But what if you’ve already seen your retirement set back three, five, or even seven years due to the most recent sell-off? It’s a hard pill to swallow.

That’s why Daily editor Teeka Tiwari is holding a special presentation on Wednesday, February 23, at 8 p.m. ET.

During this livestream event, he’ll show you how to capture 20 years of worth of S&P 500 gains from a rare phenomenon he calls an “Anomaly Window.”

Think of it as a window in time when the rules around making money in blue-chip stocks change. The normal rules become suspended.

So if rising inflation and looming rate hikes have you bearish… Teeka says right now is the absolute worst time to sell.

Instead, you need to position yourself to profit from the next Anomaly Window.

And on February 23, he’ll explain exactly what it is… when the next one is opening… and how you can position yourself to recapture 20 years’ worth of gains.
