Stop Worrying and Learn to Trade the Trend

April 10, 2014




Stop Worrying and Learn to Trade the Trend – At Follow The Money, we believe that your spiritual life comes first, followed by your family, and then your finances.

And when it comes to finances, it seems far too many people spend their lives worrying about things that they cannot change instead of seeking real solutions.

The thesis put forth by Follow The Money is crystal clear: The global economy is a ‘house of cards.’ When the jig is up, the U.S. stock market will be hit particularly hard. (Notice the future tense “will be.”) The coming market collapse that will make the 2008 crisis look like a warm-up is not here yet. But it’s coming.

All markets move in only one of three directions at any one time: UP, DOWN, or SIDEWAYS. Currently, which direction are U.S. stocks moving? They continue to trend higher.

I am convinced that more people would be successful at investing and trading if they simply spent more time following the market’s existing trend and less time living in deep friction with, or even in denial of, the existing trend.

Below is a chart of the S&P 500… Since the depths of the 2008 financial crisis, those who have stayed out of the market have lost out on one of the sharpest and quickest bull markets in U.S. history. Anyone who bought a plain vanilla index ETF, such as the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (Ticker: SPY) in mid-2009 is now sitting on nearly 200% in gains less than five years later!

Trigger Trade Report - Daily Stock Trading Ideas

Last month, I alerted our subscribers to a new breakout in nickel prices. Since March 18, the spot price of nickel has risen from $7.34 to $7.54, a 2.72% increase.

The month before that we caught the breakout in agriculture, which has risen by nearly 10% since mid-February when we alerted our subscribers.

Our Profit Trakker trend trading system is designed to generate profits when the U.S. stock market is going up… and when it is falling like a rock.

That’s right. Our trading system works in reverse! It doesn’t matter if the stock market is rising or falling.



Now, in today’s complex investing environment, the successful investor/trader must completely divorce himself from any preconceived notions he has about what the stock market is “supposed to do.” No one knows what the stock market will do tomorrow, let alone next month or next year.

The U.S. stock market is increasingly sensitive to global events and technology like never before. One simple impact with any of the myriads of unknown and uncertain externalities can instantly change the direction of the market.

The godfather of monetary intervention himself, John Maynard Keynes, is said to have framed the market timing dilemma this way: “The market can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent.”

Are today’s markets irrational? Yes, indeed.

But is market “rationality” a prerequisite to earning profits from these markets? Absolutely not… Especially if you learn to stop worrying and simply trade the market’s existing trend.

Until tomorrow,
Jerry Robinson

TODAY’S TAKEAWAY: Wise investing doesn’t have to be complicated. When done right, it should leave you with plenty of time to spend on the most important things in life.
