I took up surfing in my early 30s.
It didn't last long. But I learned a tremendous amount from the experience (least of which is that I suck at surfing).
Well, it's time to think like a surfer.
Your sole focus is to catch the wave.
The best surfers can see the waves building, just like we can in the markets, but they only care about where the biggest, best waves will crash. That's where you get the ride.
And if you catch the biggest wave in the right place, you get the ride of a lifetime.
Remember, all the action comes when the wave crashes, not as it's building. As the swell grows around you, you can go with the flow and harness the energy of the wave with little effort. That's when you become one with the universe, sitting there on your board, surrounded by dark water, rolling up and down as the power builds beneath you. That's why surfers get addicted.
Then, at the perfect moment, all the wave's pent up energy releases in a roaring spray of water and power.
That's where we want YOU to be when the greatest market wave of your lifetime comes crashing to shore!
That's when the greatest profits come.
That's when the greatest innovations spring up.
The smartest people (I include surfers in this group) and the greatest innovators understand this. They don't look at a good economy as the best opportunity for success. Seeds of radical innovation only grow in the most challenging conditions.
That's why the best traders are most often short sellers rather than long buyers… just ask Paul Tudor Jones or George Soros.
hat's why people who are prepared for the crash make out like bandits in the aftermath.
While writing my latest best seller, The Sale of a Lifetime, I created a bubble model for stocks. It follows the Masters and Johnson male orgasm study of the late 1950s.
Bubbles build exponentially and then burst twice as fast, deflating back to their point of origin (or close).
Exactly like the ocean waves that surfers spend their lives hunting for.
And precisely what smart investors spend their lives waiting for!
Central Banks have extended this wave beyond all expectations, but it's now showing signs of peaking. It looks like it's getting ready for that big crashing later this year.
You can either paddle out past where this massive 40-foot wave (at least you'll be safe)...
Or you can ride it all the way down and create extreme wealth.
This is one of those defining moments.
The choice is entirely yours.
But know that our best investment services are designed to not only to profit from the upside (as the swell builds), but to also rake it in during the downside, when it comes crashing down.
