Blast Profits in the Eye of the Storm
5 Ways to Trade the Coming EU Collapse – And Make a Killing
by Shah Gilani, Editor, Wall Street Insights & Indictments
There’s something frightening beyond the haze that surrounds economic analysis these days. We simply can’t see through the thick clouds building and darkening all around us.
What we aren’t seeing is that the clouds themselves are coalescing and spinning.
What we aren’t seeing is that we are actually in the eye of the storm.
That’s why we sense that there’s something around us that doesn’t feel right. But the pigs aren’t flying because it’s eerily calm in the eye of any huge hurricane.
That will change.
Unless there are heroic efforts exercised jointly by politicians, government leaders and central bankers in the U.S., the European Union, China, Brazil and Japan, global economies and markets are going to be battered.
What we’ve seen so far is a gentle breeze compared to what’s coming.
There’s already been a lot of money made trading the violently shifting winds. We’ve locked in some spectacular winners in my Capital Wave Forecast. We’re sitting on more. And we’re going to continue to trade this volatility.
Here at Insights & Indictments, now you’ll get a chance to make money, too.
A lot of it.
This is about calling the shots and calling out who should be shot. It’s about what’s happening, why it’s happening, who’s involved… and how to trade into it, out of it, and around it.
And you’ll get it all for free.
I’m doing this because there are simply too many tricksters out there.
For decades, I’ve had to watch them greedily suck in innocent investors to backstop their own self-serving moneymaking schemes. And I’m sick of it. I think individual investors deserve the truth, and I’m finally in a position to give it to them straight. That’s my only agenda.
So here’s what I’m looking at right now. Follow me, and let’s see how all this plays out and how we can make the most out of the hundreds of trading opportunities coming our way…
The Swirling Hurricane Could Hit At Any Moment
This hurricane – it’s huge.
We’re looking at a global rout… a possible financial meltdown… countries imploding… blood in the streets…
Expect big bank failures. Some household names will have to be wound down here in the U.S. and in Europe. The question remains: Do regulators have time and resources to make this an orderly wind-down, or will the dam break and investors drown?
There are banks to sell now (all of them). And there are banks to short.
Indeed, some money managers – and a couple of publically traded investment banking houses – aren’t going to make it through this storm.
And I will name names.
On the other hand, some banks will actually survive and thrive after the flood.
When it’s time to buy them, you’ll know.
Elsewhere, there are a few stock-market darlings that are about to get hit with the ugly stick. We’re already short one of these high flyers in my Capital Wave Forecast. We’re making money on the trade, so join us if you like. I’m talking about Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG).
CMG, along with a couple of other stocks, is about to get dumped big-time by several huge institutional holders.
This is about selling your winners when markets fall, so you book profits and have cash to buy fallen angels.
And there will be plenty of fallen angels…
Tons of great stocks are about to get even cheaper. Big-name outfits that have been sold hard since the end of July will see capitulation selling when the dam breaks.
But boy, when that happens, are they ever going to be good deals. I’m talking about big fat dividends followed by lights-out appreciation in just a couple of quarters.
And then there’s Europe…
It’s going to implode into a black hole.
At the Capital Wave Forecast, we’re short the euro and long the dollar to capitalize on the European Union’s slippery future. Join us. Buy the ProShares UltraShort Euro (NYSE: EUO) and the PowerShares DB U.S. Dollar Index Bullish (NYSE: UUP). Soon we’re going to get short more names… and even whole countries.
Then, eventually, out of the European darkness, two countries and two dozen companies are going to skyrocket. I’m all over them. So keep reading. And when the time is right, you’ll know who I’m talking about and how to play their takeoffs and moon landings.
We’re about to see something happen in commodities, too – something that’s never happened before.
Several will collapse and expose who’s been stockpiling them. When that comes out (I know two gigantic players already caught in a vice and leveraged to the hilt), not only will these commodities open “limit down.” They’ll continue to trade limit down for days.
It’s going to get ugly in the pits… and even worse for a couple of ETFs that you won’t want to touch with a 10-foot pole.
We’ll short them, too. So don’t worry.
And after the bottom falls out, starting late in the fourth quarter and into the first and second quarters of 2012, you will have a handful of life-changing opportunities to load up on some of these commodities. They will go on to hit new highs in 12 o 24 months.
Now let me give you two more Cs…
I gave you commodities. The other two are China and commercial real estate.
We’re already short China at the Capital Wave Forecast… and up more than 170%. But I think there’s more – maybe a lot more – in that trade. We will be taking more positions on China’s woes, which are just now coming to the surface. I’ll pass a few of them on to you here.
As for commercial real estate, it’s about to roll over.
If we double-dip here in the U.S. – and if it’s a deep one, and the need for liquidity becomes pervasive, which it will – commercial real estate is going to do what residential real estate did starting in 2007. There’s no question.
How will we play that? Who are the folks to watch? When will it be the right time to put on trades? Stay tuned.
Insights & Indictments is my heads-up to you. You’ll stay on top of what’s happening… and who’s making it happen. There are no gloves on in this arena. It’s bare-knuckle brawling and I’m giving you a ringside seat and a scorer’s card.
