Bond Vigilantes Are Out There – Here’s What You Need to Know

0 | By Shah Gilani

Two weeks ago, when the January Jobs Report showed wage gains up 2.9% from a year ago, triggering inflation fears, the bond market freaked out and stocks started tanking.

That’s behind us now. Or is it?

Sure, stocks have recovered and the 10-Year Treasury yield is lower, but inflation fears are still out there – and that means bond vigilantes are lurking in the shadows and could hijack markets again.

Here’s the truth about inflation, the origin of these bond vigilantes, and how the market will react to all of this…

I’m Pulling Back the Curtain on My “Trick” for Record-Breaking Gains

2 | By Shah Gilani

Last week I pulled a rabbit out of a hat for my Zenith Trading Circle subscribers.

Truth be told, we’ve seen more than just a few tricks like that over the past year.

Last week’s huge winning trade was a record for me, and it was a record for the financial gurus that are part of the famed Money Map team. 

The gain was a 1,156% return on half of a call option position on Fossil Group (NasdaqGS:FOSL) we got into on January 31, 2018, only two weeks earlier. We took off the other half of the position a day later for a 1,140% gain.  

And that record I crushed was set by a 995% gain last year… By me, for my Zenith subscribers.

In truth, the way I pick my trades isn’t magic. The rabbit was always in the hat, I just know how to find it time and time again.

Here’s how I do it, and how you can, too…

Now That You Know Volatility, Here’s How to Play It

0 | By Shah Gilani

Volatility comes in all shapes and sizes. It affects every stock, every market, and every asset class, everywhere around the world.

It can be your best friend or your worst enemy.

Either way, as Sun Tzu said, “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.”

But whether or not volatility is your enemy today, tomorrow, or next week, you have to know how to manage volatility in your trading.

Here’s why you have to embrace volatility, how to see it coming, and how to trade it.

What You Don’t Know About Volatility Can Hurt You

0 | By Shah Gilani

The wild swings we see in the stock market aren’t the result of volatility.

Volatility results from the wild swings, not the other way around.

One thing investors don’t understand is, the VIX (the CBOE Volatility Index, sometimes called the market’s “fear gauge”) isn’t predictive. It isn’t a leading indicator; it isn’t telling us what the future holds. It’s misleading.

If you didn’t know that, chances are you may not understand what’s really causing wild market swings.

Here’s your quick fix on the VIX, and how to avoid falling into the fear gauge’s trap

What Wall Street Is Desperately Trying to Hide About These Wild Markets

2 | By Shah Gilani

If you think the Dow crashing 1,600 points intraday is unprecedented, you’re wrong.

If you think the Dow trading 5,000 points up and down in a single day was an aberration, you’re wrong.

If you think the wild swings equity markets are experiencing will eventually pass, you’re wrong.

Everything you’ve heard on TV and everything you’ve read about the stock market’s violent moves this past week is wrong.

What’s really wrong is how hardly anyone knows what’s wrong, and the handful of people who do know aren’t being honest.

I’m going to tell you something you aren’t going to hear or read anywhere else: the truth about what’s wrong with stock markets, how they got to be so dangerous, and how to trade this new reality.
