In This Calm Market, It’s Time To TrimYour Sails

If you’re feeling a sharp pain in the back of your neck – a la whiplash – you’re not alone. The stock market has been one heck of a rollercoaster ride this year!

At this point, it’s hard to believe that the S&P 500 is up 1.8% year-to-date… after losing 10% in the first five weeks of the year!

Investors who sold at mid-February’s low are kicking themselves right now. And most investors still don’t know whether it’s a good time to “reinvest” now that most stocks are moving in an upward trajectory again.

Their conundrum is… a ton of individual stocks have already made “new highs.”

Twenty-six percent of stocks trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) hit new 52-week highs in the last two weeks. That signals,  for now at least, that momentum is on the side of bullish investors. (But it also means anyone who sold in February must reinvest at higher prices.)

Wall Street

A system like my very own Cycle 9 Alert.

I’ll be honest – I didn’t necessarily “see” this whiplash-inducing stock rally coming… but that’s why I built my Cycle 9 algorithm in the first place – to pick up on signs that even the most skilled investor can miss.

You see, even though every warm-blooded investor was feeling scared and bearish after the January rout (myself included), my Cycle 9 algorithm continued to identify unique buying opportunities.

Those buying opportunities are currently handing my readers gains of… 20% (on a home improvement retailer)… 22% (on a beverage company)… and 106% (on an industrial cable manufacturer).

Realize, we never would have “seen” these lucrative opportunities if we’d been stubbornly locked into the bearish mindset that the January sell-off brought about.

nyseBut that’s the great thing about Cycle 9 Alert… it automatically adapts to changing market conditions.

There’s a saying that goes…

“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change… but the realist adjusts the sails.” ~ William Arthur Ward

That’s what Cycle 9 Alert is built to do – it “adjusts the sails,” so to speak, to match the prevailing wind.

Earlier in the year, I wrote that seven of the nine stock sector ETFs we track in Cycle 9 – and all 15 country stock market ETFs – were in bearish trends.

But, as the year has worn on, most of those markets gradually improved… to the point where, today, seven of nine stock sector ETFs – and almost half of country stock market ETFs – are in bullish trends.

And best of all, as the trends in individual sectors and individual stocks began to improve, Cycle 9 Alert’s algorithm picked up on them.

My system allowed my subscribers to buy into these bullish stock opportunities before they were hitting new highs… and now they’re reaping the rewards!

That’s how my proven system is designed to work. It’s built to automatically adapt to changing market trends (even if those trend changes confuse the hell out of ordinary people, like me and you).

Philosophically speaking, I believe that’s the stock market’s job – to confuse the hell out of people!

NYSEIf investing were easy – everyone would do it well. (And the unemployment rate would be close to 100%… we’d all just live off our capital gains and investment income, right!?)

But sadly, most investors struggle to earn consistent profits from the stock market.

My experience has taught me that the stock market only rewards those investors who are willing to endure the angst of uncertainty and short-term losses… only those investors who have the discipline to stick to a proven methodology, through thick and thin.

And that’s exactly what I plan to do.

This is why I absolutely love running my Cycle 9 Alert service.

I get to help my readers invest with a strategy that automatically adapts to changing market conditions… a strategy that’s worked well for four years running… a strategy that will continue to work, no matter what Mr. Market (or Ms. Yellen) decides to through our way!

And hey, it could even save you a trip to the doctor.
