Bad News for Bulls and Bears: Stocks Are BORING
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but stocks have gone nowhere now for 20 months.
It sounds unbelievable doesn’t it? But it’s true. The stock market today is only 3.5% higher than it was during early 2018 peak.
That’s not the end of the bad news either. Even if you’d managed to trade the market perfectly, catching every peak and every bottom, the returns aren’t that great.
If you’d caught the March 2018 bottom perfectly, you’d have made 13% in six months riding stocks to their next peak.
And if you’d shorted the market at the very top, you’d have made 17% in four months.
And if you’d then taken a break from the holidays to buy at the exact bottom in December 2018, you’d be up 23% in 10 months.
See for yourself.
13% in six months.
17% in four months.
And 23% in 10 months.
And bear in mind, that’s only if you timed the tops and bottoms perfectly three times in a row – something that no trader can do.
Put simply, the stock market is becoming boring. Yes, you can make decent gains from it. But I’m not interested in decent gains. I’m interested in BIG RETURNS FAST.
Which is why I’ve been focusing almost exclusively on the currency markets.
The Largest Most Liquid Markets in the World
Stocks get most of the attention from the financial media because most investors think of them as the most important asset class.
They’re not. In fact, stocks are one of the smallest markets on the planet.
Globally, the stock market is around $80 trillion in size.
That sounds like a huge amount… until you realize that the bond market is more than THREE times this at $244 trillion.
And the currency markets dwarf even the bond markets!
While it’s impossible to know their full size (every currency trade involves two currencies so the net size is impossible to measure), we do know that the currency markets trade an astonishing $6.6 trillion per day.
To put this into perspective, the New York Stock Exchange – the single largest stock market in the world – typically trades just $200 billion in volume per day.
Put simply, the currency market, based on volume alone, is 33 times larger than the stock market. This is the largest, most liquid market in the world. So when a major change occurs, it hits these markets first.
That’s why if you’re looking to gain insight into what’s going on in the global financial system, you NEED to look at the currency markets.
With the right trading strategy, even a SMALL move in currencies can mean MASSIVE gains.
Let me show you.
At the end of August, my proprietary Alpha Currency Profits trading system registered an “Alpha Signal” in the Australian Dollar. An Alpha Signal is what happens when a currency gets overstretched and its central bank steps in to intervene.
This happened on August 30, 2019. At that time, I sent out at trade alert to Alpha Currency Profits subscribers, telling them to bet on the Australian Dollar strengthening.
I also outlined the exact investment to buy to profit from this, as well as the price to buy it at. Over the next five days, the Australian Dollar rose 1.2%. That’s a HUGE move for a currency in four days.
And it translated to a 63% gain for Alpha Currency Profits subscribers.
63% in five days.
Compare that to stocks which have risen 23% in 10 months.
This is a regular occurrence for Alpha Currency Profits.
Since its launch, it 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.
If you’re interested in seeing these kinds of returns, you can find out more about this unique trading system, head to the Alpha Currency Profits page on the website… and the best part is, we’re trading currencies without touching the dangerous FOREX market!
