Part 3: The Biggest Opportunity in the Markets Today
Over the last three days, I outlined how the stock market is actually one of the smallest markets on the planet and that the currency markets offer far better returns in much shorter time frames.
As a brief recap, globally the stock market is around $80 trillion in size.
The bond market is over three times that – sitting at $244 trillion.
And the currency markets are more than 30 TIMES LARGER based on volume – trading over $6.6 trillion in volume every single day.
To put that number into perspective, it’s larger than Japan’s GDP: the total annual economic output of the entire country.
And the currency markets trade it Every. Single. Day.
Put simply, based on volume alone, the currency market is 33 times larger than the stock market. This is the largest, most liquid market in the world.
And with the right strategy you can use the currency markets to see double, even triple digit returns in a matter of days.
And you can do it without touching the dangerous foreign exchange (FOREX) markets.
The FOREX markets are so massive that even the largest financial institutions in the world can trade them with little difficulty. To give you an idea of how large we’re talking about, a $10 million position is a small position for these firms.
This makes the FOREX market extremely dangerous for individual investors. Even if you’re correct about a trade, you can get blown up by a large financial institution taking a position in the market.
Which is why when it comes to trading the currency markets, I prefer to use currency ETFs.
The largest currency ETF is the U.S. Dollar ETF (UUP). Its market cap is just under $350 million. As an investment, this is a microcap. And it’s WAY too small for large institutions or hedge funds to trade.
Think of it this way: Imagine you’re running a $50 million hedge fund. You would rarely want to put more than 10% ($5 million) of your portfolio in a single investment, particularly a microcap investment.
Moreover, if you did put that $5 million to work in UUP, you’d need the U.S. dollar to literally DOUBLE in value for you to even see a total portfolio return of 10% ($5 million gain / $50 million portfolio = 10% return).
That’s NOT going to happen.
Put simply, currency ETFs are too small for large financial institutions to touch. Which makes them perfect for individual traders who want the MASSIVE returns of the currency markets without touching FOREX.
That’s why I specifically designed my Alpha Currency trading strategy to use currency ETFs – I wanted the massive returns without the risk.
Since its launch, Alpha Currency Profits has shown traders returns of:
- 52% in two days
- 63% in five days
- 75% in five days
- 79% in four days
- Even 100% in just four days.
We’re showing traders a win rate of 85%, meaning we’re making money on OVER eight out of every 10 trades we make.
In the trading world, a win rate like this – with every single winner in the double digits – is UNHEARD OF.
