Right now, investors are worried about the next round of tariffs coming in the escalating trade war between the United States and China (among other countries).
But something even bigger is about to happen… something that could have an immediate – and direct – impact on your bank account: rising interest rates.
Now the Fed already increased rates by one-quarter percentage point back on June 13, and they’re promising two more by December 31.
And despite President Trump’s dissatisfaction with rising interest rates, the chances of this happening are better than ever, thanks to a strong economy and record-low unemployment rate.
That means you could soon be paying more on everything from your mortgage and credit card payments to the equities in your portfolio.
The Secret to Scoring Lightening-Speed Bond Profits
That’s right, I’m talking about bonds…
If you know anything about investing, you’ve probably been trained that bonds are the slowest investments in the stock market. In fact, 10-year bond yields recently hit a five-week low, and even banks are growing less and less supportive of the overall bond market because of the declining demand overseas.
And when you think of bond investments, you’re probably used to hearing about those “traditional” vehicles, like:
- Mutual funds
- Certificates of Deposit (CDs)
- College savings accounts
Now sure, you could use any of these…
But why should you have to sacrifice 15, 20, or even 30 years of your life to see a real return while the big banks and Wall Street sit back and pocket the interest on yourhard-earned cash?
Instead, you can put your money to work right now – and out of reach from those greedy fat cats.
It all boils down to the one thing they don’t want you to know about: options.
Let me show you what I mean…
On August 1, 2017, I recommended a call option (or “Green Trade,” as I like to call it) on the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT), a Money Calendar favorite.
Now, I chose this ETF because of a strong seasonal pattern showing a 30-day bullish movement. And when I say strong, I’m talking about a 90% accuracy rate over the last 10 years.
In fact, when I made this recommendation, Money Calendar had already recorded over 201% total gains on TLT less than two months prior.
Now for the entire month of August, the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index only posted a measly gain of 0.90%.
But we did much better on one single trade – 11,399 times better, to be exact.
Because, just as my Money Calendar predicted, TLT opened higher, at $126.65, driving the price of our option to $4.66 – a 103.49% gain – in 16 days.
Here’s another example from earlier this year…
Back on March 12, I spotted an obscure, 30-day pattern on TLT. Now this pattern had revealed a climb in price during this time frame that had happened with 90% accuracy over the past decade.
With a pattern this undeniably strong, I knew we had to act fast. So I sent my readers instructions to open a simple Green Trade (call trade) on TLT, where it only cost $200 total to control 100 shares.
Mind you, this ETF was trading at $117.54 per share at the time… which means you would have had to pay $11,754.00 for the amount of shares my readers were able to get – at over a 98% discount.
And, as my Money Calendar predicted, TLT made a small 2.28% move higher, handing us a 100% gain – or as I call, a “double” – on our option.
During that same 16-day period of time, the U.S. Aggregate Bond Index only moved 0.5%.
So while those other guys out there opted for the slow and steady route that “conventional wisdom” often tells you to take, my readers made 19,990 the profits – for less than half the price.
That’s the unharnessed power of my Money Calendar…
And when it comes to options, they’ve never been easier to trade. In fact, when people first started trading options, they mainly had to rely on newspapers and brokers to find, place, and track their trades.
Nowadays, you can search for and place your trades online, with the ability to track them in a matter of seconds (free of charge, too).
What’s more… you can turn even bonds into the fastest, most lucrative corner of the market.
In fact, I’m also going to show you a special new strategy, called “Robbing Peter to Pay Paul (RP3)” – and how we’re going to use it to bank a fast double on the slowest investments in the market.
Not only will you see how this tiny corner of the markets can help protect your portfolio, but could put you in position for unlimited profit potential. And, I’ll reveal the exact trade details needed to make this move.
