Top Stock Markets 2021

Assume there are only two assets in the world to invest in…
Asset #1 is called, “I’m not worried about the future—so let’s grow our money.” And then there’s Asset #2. This one’s called, “I’m really worried about the future and I’ve got to protect my money.”

Asset #1 is mostly known as “the stock market.” Today, it’s about $100 trillion in size and growing [almost] every year. Asset #2 is called cash & bonds, which has over $900 trillion in assets.

This is the game most people want to know how to play and win…

When should I be in Asset #1, how long should I stay and when should I get out?Knowing which one is doing better relative to the other one is the closest thing we have to a crystal ball. And it’s actually a pretty damn good crystal ball.

In fact, this crystal ball is so good (read: hated) that it can almost immediately digest all the information in the world and plot a number on a price chart. And it can tell you where your money will be treated best.

The problem is you. Or more likely, how you’ve been taught to think about investing. For most people, we’ve been taught you need degrees and to hire people (big-box advisors) that have access to research departments filled with people that have letters after their names, who graduated from school that have bigger brands (read: Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Stanford, Brown) then the states they even live in.

We are taught that it’s complicated.

And how could we think anything else? After all, we are paying someone to manage our money in a very complicated way. Just look at your last statement from your advisor. What does it load up in your body? Clarity? Joy? Or, anxiety? Confusion?

That was done by design. They want you to be anxious and confused.

15 years ago, when I was living in Silicon Valley, I was on a call with a client and told them if they just bought the S&P500, reinvested their dividends, and got rid of all that other crap they were buying, owning and then selling via their Merrill Lynch advisor they’d have an extra $50k a year.

So this client asked that we, together, call his advisor. We did. And as you can imagine there were a lot of uncomfortable silences as my clients asked his advisor why we just don’t own the S&P and reinvest dividends.

The answer was, “It’s more complicated than that. There’s no diversification in just owning the US stock market. You have to be diversified, as you (the client) are now 50 years old. And you never know which part of the market will perform well.”

Knowing how to read price charts tells a very different story. Understanding how to read price charts tells a story of being able to actually see what is going on with your money. You don’t have to be unnecessarily diversified in parts of the market that are hurting you.

In this week’s update, I want to show you how reading price charts can give you the clarity so many of us have been looking for.

I’m going to look at what part of the world is doing best, breaking out, and getting stronger… because when an entire part of the world starts to break out and accelerate up, it’s telling us something very important. It’s telling us where the demand is, where money is being treated best. And, most importantly, where the safety is.
