You know how it works. The villain -- a psychotic slasher, an unstoppable cyborg, a vengeful ex-mistress -- has seemingly been dispatched once and for all. The hero and heroine embrace. The music swells. Everyone sighs with relief. And then...
Suddenly, out of nowhere, the villain is back! Screams and more bloodshed ensue -- until, once again, and this time for good, the threat is brought to an end.
False endings are fun -- in the movies. In investing, not so much.
And right now, millions of investors are being taken in by one of the biggest "false endings" in market history.
I'm talking, of course, about the big rally that followed the bear market in 2008 and early 2009, which destroyed over $12 trillion in investor wealth.
Of course, Wall Street has its own name for false endings: "sucker's rallies." And if you don't believe that we're in the midst of The Mother of All Sucker's Rallies -- the false ending to top all false endings -- well, I'm about to prove it to you.
But here's a little secret...
Properly played, sucker's rallies are an investor's dream. The key is to get in early, then get out in time to preserve your gains -- so that, when the inevitable downturn comes, you're prepared to profit again from the next upswing.
And that's just what my subscribers are doing right now. Though we've been fully participating in the market rally that began last March, we're refusing to see it as anything but the false ending it actually is.
That's why, unlike most investors, we won't be taken by surprise when the downturn comes -- which, as I'm about to explain, will be sooner, and worse, than you think.
That's also why, with our assets and purchasing power intact, we'll be ready to pounce on some extremely attractive profit opportunities I've got my eye on -- which I'll tell you about in a moment -- that will become available when the market bounces back.
Now, I don't blame you if you think I make it sound too easy. Timing the market is simple in theory, but very hard in practice -- and there's no lack of "experts" who claim to be able to do it on a consistent basis.
But there's one difference between them and me: I have the 32-year track record to prove it.
