We are now in the worst seasonal period for stocks.
The old adage “sell in May and go away” does have some merit. According to the Ned Davis (NDR) database, had you invested $10,000 in the S&P 500 every May 1st starting in 1950 and sold October 31 of the same year, your initial position would only be worth $10,026 as of 2008. Put another way, by investing only from May through October, a $10,000 stake invested in 1950 would have only made $26 in 57 years.
In contrast, $10,000 invested in the S&P 500 on November 1st and sold April 30th over the same time period would have grown to $372,890. Out of 58 years, you would have had 45 positive and only 13 negative.
Now consider that stocks failed to produce new highs during this recent rally. Despite being manipulated higher by someone determined to get stocks to 2,100, we’ve slammed into resistance.

Moreover, the Russell 2000, which usually leads the S&P 500 is lagging far behind: not a good sign if this rally is meant to be the start of something more.
Looking at the long-term S&P 500 chart, we could easily see the market plunge to 1,600: its long-term bull market trendline.
More and more this environment feels like late 2007/ early 2008: when the economy was in collapse but stocks held up on hopes that the Fed could maintain the bubble.
The time to prepare for this bubble to burst is now. Imagine if you’d prepared for the 2008 Crash back in late 2007? We did, and our clients made triple digit returns when the markets imploded.
We’re currently preparing for a similar situation today.
Indeed, subscribers of my Private Wealth Advisory newsletter just closed out THREE more winners last week: gains of 10%, 12% and 15% produced in just a few weeks’ time.
This brings our winning trade streak to 81 straight winning trades.
Indeed, we haven’t closed a single loser since November 2014.
81 straight winners… and not one closed loser… in 18 months.
However, I cannot maintain this kind of track record with thousands of investors following our recommendations.
So we are going to be raising the price on a Private Wealth Advisory subscription from $199 to $249 at the end of the month.
However, you can try Private Wealth Advisory for 30 days today, for just 98 cents.
