Like it or not, millions of investors listen to what the mainstream media says.
(My readers and I don’t because we have our own proven way to make money.)
These millions love a narrative. A story. The simpler, the better. They get the story spoon-fed to them and then rush to buy or sell the assets that get promoted on CNBC, MSNBC, or Bloomberg.
Which is totally fine by me. I prefer to stay in the minority of investors who rely on the 18.6-year real estate cycle. It has worked for me and my readers for years.
Which means I am not part of the group of investors rushing into safety right now.
On the contrary, my theory tells me that the next two to three years will be some of the most lucrative and profitable… and the potential for wealth-building is huge.
But the masses are panicking…
Scared Investors Crave Money Market Funds
The Financial Times reported that worried investors have put about $1 trillion into money market funds this year.
As a reminder, these funds hold short-term government debt and other very safe and liquid assets.
These funds pay some of the highest yields in years as a result of the Fed’s and other central banks’ interest rate hikes.
This, and the gloomy outlook for the U.S. economy that the media continues pushing has made investors worried.
What an irony…
Yes, there is a place for safe investments in any portfolio.
But rushing to buy them at the exact moment when the market enters what I call “the Eleventh Hour” is, to me at least, pure madness.
It’s the opposite of what investors should be doing…
They should be focused on building wealth in the run-up to the end of this 18.6-year cycle… not switch to cash and money market funds.
Guess what… it’s always been like that. If you listen to what the mainstream media says, you’ll almost always be on the wrong side of the trade.
Let Me Make a Prediction
Right at the peak of this 18.6-year cycle, when my research and market data will start telling me that the cycle is about to turn… this will happen.
Mainstream media will start pushing an “all clear” narrative.
And these investors who are making a $1 trillion mistake by buying money market funds when they should be focused on select stocks… well, they will make another trillion-dollar mistake.
When the time comes to de-risk, they will go all-in on stocks.
They will listen to what CNBC tells them to do… and, again, do the exact opposite of what they should be doing.
If you go with the accepted wisdom, you’ll be wrong twice. You’ll run to safety when you’ll need to be making some well-calculated risky bets, and you’ll crank up your risk right when the cycle is about to turn.
Mark these words. And don’t make the same mistake.

P.S. I’ve made it my mission to educate mainstream investors about how to avoid being wrong twice using my 18.6-year real estate cycle. I want you to have the confidence and autonomy that only this system can provide. And it’s been correct for over 223 years…
