I recently got a letter from one of my publishers…
He told me he’s lost nearly seven years’ worth of retirement contributions during this recent market downturn.
He wanted to know what to do… And I was very blunt with him.
I told him that if he didn’t change his approach to the market, he’d see what many investors have seen this year: His losses would accumulate.
It’s not the first time I’ve been harsh with my readers.
On May 19, 2021, I sent out a video update to my Palm Beach Confidential subscribers. Bitcoin had tumbled from an all-time high of $63,500 to $40,000 – a staggering 37% crash
Here’s a partial transcript of what I told them…
You must stay focused on the big picture. If the volatility makes your stomach churn, turn [your] computer off and go do something else. And I’m being stern with you today because this is where lives are made and lost… Right here.
You don’t pay me just for newsletters. That’s not even my primary job. You pay me for moments like this… To make sure you make the right decision.
And the right decision is to either hold or buy more. Do not panic sell. Unequivocally, you’ll look back on it as one of the worst life-destroying decisions you ever made.
I want you to stay strong and trust in the facts of the research. We’re at the beginning of this adoption curve. One hundred million people hold crypto as an asset. Five billion people own mobile phones, which are gateways to the crypto market. And there are more than 7 billion people on the planet.
This is the beginning of the beginning. You better not be a sheep here. I’ll come find you. I promise you.
When bitcoin tumbled another 25% two months later, I had to use strong language again to keep readers from destroying their wealth by panic selling. I told them it’s part of what I called the mid-cycle blues. Again, my language wasn’t so nice:
I know sitting through these mid-cycle sell-offs is about as much fun as getting a colonoscopy. Sure, your doctor tells you it’s a vitally important test… But who the heck wants to go through one?
It’s unpleasant and uncomfortable. You’d love to avoid it, but there’s no easy way around it.
So, welcome to your crypto colonoscopy.
I know my language can be harsh. But soon after, we saw bitcoin rise 131% to an all-time high of $68,789.
Even with its recent pullback, bitcoin is still up 44%. And many analysts predict we’ll see $200,000 bitcoin by the end of the year.
I’m telling you this now because I’m about to tell you what I told my publisher… And it’ll probably take you out of your comfort zone.
The Pain Isn’t Over
Like my publisher, I’ve been getting a lot of emails from my subscribers who are losing money through this volatility.
The S&P 500 is down 8.23% on the year, and the Nasdaq is down 14.91%.
Some big-name stocks – like Meta, Netflix, and Moderna – are down even more. All three have dropped 32% or more in the last month.
Were those three names on your biggest-loser watch list six months ago? Probably not.
The whole world is looking at what’s going on right now. They don’t understand this volatility. And I’d wager many people have lost much more than seven years’ worth of retirement contributions.
And that’s because they don’t understand it… They don’t know what’s happening, so they’re getting bearish and selling for huge losses.
By the time this is all done, those losses could destroy their retirement.
I’m sorry, friends. But if that’s you, here is your wake-up call…
You’re Selling at the Wrong Time
I know this sounds crazy. But the volatility we’re seeing now is setting up for another bull run. In fact, I’m on record predicting we’ll see a bull run to at least 2028.
And it all has to do with something I call an “Anomaly Window.”
An Anomaly Window opens when an event or catalyst massively increases activity in the market for a certain period.
When these windows open, boring blue-chip stocks can make decades’ worth of gains in as little as a few days or weeks.
For instance, during the last three Anomaly Windows, my subscribers saw 184%, 380%, and 422% gains from three companies. These aren’t back-tests. They’re actual gains my subscribers locked in.
Again, it’s hard to see this with all the volatility and fear in your face. But that’s why I was so hard on my crypto subscribers.
I don’t care if I have to drag them kicking and screaming to life-changing gains. That’s what they pay me to do.
If you’re uncomfortable right now, I’m fine with that. My job is not to make you feel emotionally comfortable… It’s to help you make money.
What I care about is getting you up that mountain and getting you financially free.
That’s my bigger mission. That’s what you and I are going to do together.
I don’t care how painful it is.
My job is to help save your financial life. It’s to help get you to a place where your life is your own. Where money is your servant, not your master.
That’s my job… And I take it very seriously.
That’s why at 8 p.m. ET on February 23, I’m holding a special live webinar to prepare you for the next Anomaly Window.
I’ll explain what an Anomaly Window is… tell you when the next one will open… and share how it could potentially help you recapture 20 years of stock market gains in as little as three months.
Plus, I’ll give you a list of stocks I’m using to take advantage… no strings attached.
Friends, what I will tell you on February 23 will take you out of your comfort zone. But I promise you I’ve seen this before.
I saw it in the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s… And while the past is no guarantee of the future, my track record speaks for itself.
I had to drag my clients kicking-and-screaming into Apple in 2007… And I had to do it with bitcoin in 2016…
Today, I’ll drag as many people as possible kicking-and-screaming into the next leg of this bull market.
This is the most compelling Anomaly Window I’ve seen in 28 years, so be sure to join me on February 23 at 8 p.m. ET.
Let the Game Come to You!
