Is This Déjà Vu All Over Again?

0 | By Shah Gilani

Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t the market just do this only a month ago?

Yeah, it did.

Led by the FAANG stocks – Facebook Inc. (NasdaqGS:FB), Amazon.com Inc. (NasdaqGS:AMZN), Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL), Netflix Inc. (NasdaqGS:NFLX), and Google’s parent company, Alphabet Inc. (NasdaqGS:GOOGL) – the market rolled over and played dead in October.

Only, it wasn’t dead. Stocks came roaring back, and by mid-November, it looked like the panic had subsided. It looked like stocks wanted to recover and like they were making a strong push back up north.

Then, just when things looked brighter, stocks tanked again, just like they did in October.

And the major benchmarks tested (and mostly broke) their October lows.

Now, we’ve rallied again. Just like we did after the swoon in October.

As Yogi Berra said, “It’s like déjà vu all over again.”

Almost.

It’s easy to get discouraged now, believe me. Christmas is right around the corner, and it feels like all you’re going to be doing is losing money. Nobody wants that.

But what I have to show you could completely turn around how you approach the market, making money, and how you look at bears vs. bulls

This Could Get Me in Trouble, But It’s Got to Be Said

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.

Today, I’m going to show you why you have to embrace volatility, and how to see it coming.

Then, I’m going to show you something so hot right now – it’s strictly off-limits for me to talk about anywhere else (I’ll probably get sued for it, but I don’t care)

Another Market Problem: Correlation is Picking Up

0 | By Shah Gilani

With everything the stock market’s dealing with, the most cumbersome and potentially dangerous thing it’s facing right now, which could break the market’s back, is increasing correlation.

Correlation is a simple phenomenon. It’s when different markets, different asset classes start acting the same and moving together.

When correlation picks up in a bearish environment, meaning more different asset classes start moving down together, something very bad can happen.

We’re not in a bear market. Not yet. But we could get there – several asset classes could get there quickly.

That’s my biggest fear right now.

Now, the stock market is in a dicey position, to start with.

All the leadership stocks, principally the FAANG stocks, that propelled markets higher for years, have all rolled over. Several of them are already in bear markets.

A correction is a 10% move down from a recent high, or an all-time high. A stock enters a bear market when it falls 20%.

Here’s what you should be watching out for

These Tiny Microspheres Could Mint Millionaires Practically Overnight – and You Could Be One of Them

Sometimes it starts with a sharp pain in your knees when you get out of bed in the morning…

Or agony in your hip as you walk down the stairs… Or even stiffness in your fingers after working on the car.

But no matter how it begins, it almost always ends the same: Worsening pain, and a diagnosis of a disorder that, currently, has slim treatment options.

We’re talking about osteoarthritis.

If you’re not familiar with the name now, you may be in the future. Osteoarthritis is affecting younger and younger crowds, and already lessens the quality of life for nearly 30 million Americans.

And, up until very recently, the treatment options consisted of nerve-damaging steroids or potentially addictive opioids.

Thankfully, one company may have found the best possible solution to the osteoarthritis problem,

Not only is their newest drug opioid-free and steroid-free, but it also is poised for a potential 58,213% revenue surge…

And you can learn how to lock in this ground-floor opportunity

Shah Gilani Will NOT Touch This Sector Right Now

0 | By Wall Street Insights and Indictments Staff

We’re seeing a slight big tech rebound this morning, following yesterday’s big losses. However, the day is still young, and Shah Gilani says he’d like to see the Dow up at least a few hundred points before feeling optimistic.

On this episode of Varney & Co., host Stuart Varney asks Shah what he thinks of the FAANG stocks right now, namely Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL), the culprit that’s leading the market sharply lower. Teetering around $179, the stock is certainly in bear market territory – well on its way to becoming an ideal buy.

Then, Stuart asks Shah if there are any stocks in one hot button sector that Shah would buy right now, and Shah answers with a vehement, “No.” See if you can spot where he drops this statement… Click here to watch.

Here’s Why the “Fear Gauge” Shouldn’t Frighten You

1 | 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

The Market Psyche Has Changed – What to Do Now

0 | By Wall Street Insights and Indictments Staff

In a bear market such as what we’ve been experiencing for the past few weeks, it’s hard to justify buying into tech stocks. Even the biggest and baddest of them all – like first-ever $1 trillion company Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL), which slipped below $200 a share – are feeling the heat.

On the latest episode of Varney & Co., Starbucks Corp. (NasdaqGS:SBUX) has announced that it’s laying off 5% of its global workforce in reflection of its steadily slowing sales. Shah Gilani said he’s never been impressed with the company, and that he’d short the stock – because it definitely go lower from here. Speaking of stocks that could drop lower, another Tesla Inc. (NasdaqGS:TSLA) executive has left the company. This could leave the already-wobbly company in a vulnerable state. Do you think that this could send the company’s stock lower? Click here to watch.

General Electric: Too Big to NOT Fail

2 | By Shah Gilani

You may remember the first verse of Blood, Sweat & Tears’ 1968 hit song “Spinning Wheel”:

What goes up must come down
Spinnin’ wheel got to go ’round
Talkin’ ’bout your troubles it’s a cryin’ sin
Ride a painted pony let the spinnin’ wheel spin

Those lyrics also tell the story of how the once-mighty General Electric (NYSE:GE) was managed and what happened to its stock.

What investors missed about GE is with all its spinnin’ going on, it became too big to not fail.

This is the true story of what really happened to the 126-year old company started by famed inventor Thomas Edison and industrialist banker J.P. Morgan.

It’s a long one, so I’m dividing this into two parts – one today, and one on Friday.
