Emma’s Note: The markets seem to be stacked against average folks these days. So it’s no wonder that so many investors are looking for ways to fight back – and beat – the system. That’s why today, we’re passing along this essay from colleague Jason Bodner…
Jason describes how Main Street investors can beat the system… finally get even with Wall Street… and maybe even get ahead of them. Plus, you’ll get details on a special video presentation where you can learn how to start putting this plan into action for gains like 107%… 324%… and even 722%. Read on…
Renaissance Technologies’ Medallion Fund is iconic for being an outlandish money-making machine.
Just how outlandish?
Every dollar invested from 1988 to 2018 would have grown to over $20,000. Compare that to the S&P – that same $1 would have only been worth around $20.
That’s a massive difference.
In 2020 alone, the Medallion Fund returned a whopping 76%… compared to the S&P 500’s return of about 18%.
Even better, Medallion’s returns have been negatively correlated with the overall stock market. In 2008, the S&P dropped 37% in the midst of the financial crisis… but the Medallion Fund reported a gain of 82%.
I bet everyone reading this wishes they could go put money into this fund now, right?
But the unfortunate reality is… you can’t. The fund has been closed to outsiders since the early ’90s.
It’s a perfect example of how regular investors are locked out of many of the best opportunities to make life-changing profits. Many wealth-building tools are restricted… and others reap the benefits.
The venture capitalists, private equity sharks, and Wall Street hotshots have kept the best investments and the best trading systems to themselves for far too long now. They have systematically roped off the most profitable research, making sure that nearly all investment profits flow their way.
At best, normal retail investors have been locked out. At worst, they’ve been preyed upon.
And that’s why I’ve been determined to level the playing field…
Balancing the Scales
For those who don’t know me, my name is Jason Bodner. And for a number of years, I got to see the “inside baseball” that happens on Wall Street.
Making money for big banks was great for a while, of course… but after nearly two decades of working on the Street, it wasn’t as fun as it used to be.
And my dad helped show me that I had more to share…
He and I loved to talk stocks. But he saw things through the lens he’d been given – CNBC, Wall Street Journal, and so on. Really, this lens is the way almost everyone sees the market.
But I had insider knowledge. And when I showed my dad how I could detect when certain stocks were likely to take off, his eyes lit up. I was showing him something no one else did or could.
My insider knowledge helped him make a lot of money. And when I saw the impact it had, I realized that he wasn’t the only person I could help.
So I left Wall Street and decided to use my know-how to help regular folks and “balance the scales” back in Main Street’s favor…
And today, I’ll give you a “behind the scenes” look at how I do just that…
Taking the Guesswork Out of Trading
My goal is to take the guesswork out of trading.
Rather than simply buying the latest meme stock or names being talked up on CNBC, we can pick through the chatter to find out which stocks we really should be buying.
And to do that, I’ve spent the past decade working on my own stock-picking system that gives us “X-ray vision” of the market…
My system scans more than 5,500 stocks daily, using algorithms to rank each one for strength on several different measures.
And it’s “picky.” We only want to invest in fundamentally sound stocks… companies that grow their sales and earnings year after year, don’t carry tons of debt and are leaders in their sector.
Unsurprisingly, there’s a ton of junk in the stock market. So my system’s first step is to weed out companies with weak fundamentals.
Then, my system looks for “Big Money” investment in these great stocks. There’s a lot of number crunching that goes into this, but in broad strokes, this means we’re looking for companies with inexplicably high trading volume.
If a stock normally trades one million shares a day… and suddenly it’s trading three million… that can be a sign of institutional players getting in.
When these two key factors come together – strong fundamentals and clear Big Money buying activity – that’s when I know a stock has multi-bagger potential.
And the result of my system is a ranked list of the best stocks to buy…
This is how I’ve helped my readers reach open gains like 246%.… 107%.… 324%.… and even 722%.
But I’m not alone in looking for opportunities to turn the tables on Wall Street…
The Nasdaq Glitch
There’s one other development I want to put on readers’ radar… a way to beat Wall Street at its own game.
And my friend Jeff Brown, the founder of Brownstone Research, just shared the full story…
As many readers know, Jeff has spent years looking for the most promising investments in technology, which still have the chance to bring investors VC-like gains.
But as I described above, that’s rare these days…
And now, for the first time, Jeff has expanded his view to the larger markets… not just tech. That’s because he’s spotted a “glitch” in the Wall Street “matrix”…
You see, roughly $238 billion changes hands each day. And with the help of this “Nasdaq glitch,” investors can identify which stocks all that money is about to pour into.
This is one of the most guarded secrets of the financial elites. And on Wednesday, Jeff finally showed everyone what it is…
There really is a secret to making more from your investments. And this “glitch” could help put you on the path to real wealth.
So if you’d like to learn more… and hear the big announcement Jeff made at this event, then please just go right here to catch the replay.
Jeff even names a top “glitch” stock that you can buy right away as a free gift for watching.
If I know anything, it’s that when Jeff talks, I listen.
This replay will only be available for a short time, so please, don’t miss out.
