If supply disruptions cause oil prices to go up, can you tell when on this chart the most destructive hurricane in U.S. history arrived?


Become One of the Few Investors
Who Grasps that News Does NOT Move the Financial Markets
Who Understands that Market Volatility Comes in Waves
And Who Is Prepared AHEAD of Time

Coming Market Conditions Will Separate Investors Into 3 Types: Which Will You Be?

EWI’s research shows that many financial markets, including stocks, are approaching a critical juncture. The ensuing volatility will separate investors into three broad categories.

Prepared investors will be positioned to survive and prosper in the new environment. Unprepared investors will, hopefully, recognize their precarious position and scramble to safety.

The third group is the Pseudo-Prepared. They think they're prepared…but they are not. Their strategies rest on assumptions like the Fed controls the economy; earnings drive stock prices; news determines the market’s path; gold is a good hedge; diversification equals stability…and many other “truths.”

The problem is that these assumptions are demonstrably false.

Pseudo-Prepared investors will be the most devastated of all in the new environment. This group will cling to their strategies even as their wealth is ravaged. They'll listen to the same conventional experts, who now scratch their heads and use terms like “Black Swan” to explain why the markets are operating outside their models.

This is exactly what happened in 2000 and 2008…and the same early warning signs are flashing again.

When volatility returns, conventional wisdom crumbles and takes portfolios with it. It happens again, and again, and again.

Don’t let that happen to you.

YOU Can Become a Truly Prepared Investor.
You Can Make Decisions Based on Solid, Tested Foundations.
You Can Survive and Prosper in the Coming Environment.

No other analysts in the world, anywhere, undertake the depth of research that goes into the Financial Forecast Service. Throughout the month, Bob, Steve and Pete sift through mountains of data, often studying 100 years of data or more. Why?
