December 23 Will Change Everything
By Greg Diamond
Analyst, Stansberry Research
On January 6th, I made a public announcement that scared a lot of people.
"The following dates each year usually mark an important inflection point. March 20th to 25th."
I then explained why the market was due for a massive fall... a warning I repeated again and again over the following weeks.
"I see a wave of volatility hitting the market very soon..."
"The market is getting close to a... top."
"A correction is upcoming. It's just a matter of how far and how fast."
"The next corrective window... is late next week."
Unfortunately, most people didn't believe my warnings, which I suppose was understandable. Nobody had any idea the coronavirus was going to be such a big deal at the time. And we were just emerging from 2019, the best year for stocks in two decades.
But... you know what happened next...
One week later, on February 27th, the market began the first drop of what became the worst crash since the 2008 financial crisis.
On March 9th, I wrote:
"The move down is very sharp. This is historic. Can it keep going? Yes."
Even then, most experts STILL didn't realize how bad things were going to get.
In fact, one former $200 million hedge fund manager publicly predicted: "The Coronavirus panic is overblown, so it's time to buy."
Seven days later, we saw the worst one-day drop in history. Trading was halted as news of COVID-19 got worse by the hour... and schools, businesses and airports began shutting down...
And on March 22nd, I publicly wrote:
"At a minimum I'm expecting a 1,000 point drop [this week], as crazy as that sounds."
The following day, the Dow closed nearly 2,000 points lower than the previous high. That was the day the market bottomed... a final and devastating blow after many folks had already lost a fortune.
But not me. And not you either, I hope.
Because while most people were panicking, I closed a single investment play that would have made you a 122% gain in 15 days on the Treasury Bond ETF (TLT), followed by a 256% gain in 6 days on the Financial SPDR Fund (XLF), if you'd seen my warnings.
That's more than double your money, and then more than 3 times your money, during the height of the crash.
And that brings me to...
The secret of "Gann Dates"
In short, certain dates of the year hold unusual weight for the stock market.
Take a look...
To most people, this chart is complete gibberish.
But I've spent my entire 20-year career on and off Wall Street learning to read charts like this, because they show you exactly which dates could see the biggest moves in the market.
It's known as a "Gann Chart."
It's named for W.D. Gann, a legendary trader from the early 20th century who used what some call "financial astrology" to make big predictions about the stock market.
Many critics dismiss his work as hocus-pocus.
But not me.
I spent 5 years earning my CMT degree (Certified Market Technician) to learn exactly how Gann strategy works, which I applied as the head trader for a $65 billion pension fund... with extraordinary results.
Take a closer look...
Gann discovered that stock prices often react to certain time factors.
And if you can read and interpret these time factors, you can see exactly when the market is most likely to soar or crash.
But here's the thing...
When I tell you what these time factors are based on, you'll probably think I'm crazy.
In fact, many people have dismissed my approach as "financial fortune-telling"... "hocus pocus"... or "financial astrology." One man even dismissed it as a "load of crap" full of "stars and moons stuff."
But once you see how this works in action, you'll understand why traders have been using these factors for more than a century now.
In fact, you could have doubled your money 17 different times so far since I joined Stansberry – just by using my Gann dates.
Take a look:
- 165% gain in 13 days on Treasure Bond ETF (TLT)
- 107% gain in 8 days on SPDR Gold Shares (GLD)
- 154% gain in 34 days on S&P 500 ETF (SPY)
- 329% gain in 16 days on Gold Miners ETF (GDX)
- 345% gain in 19 days on Gold Miners ETF (GDX)
- 171% gain in 42 days on Gold Miners ETF (GDX)
- 196% gain in 18 days on Caterpillar (CAT)
- 180% gain in 11 days on S&P 500 ETF (SPY)
- 127% gain in 15 days on Caterpillar (CAT)
- 168% gain in 28 days on Treasure Bond ETF (TLT)
- 122% gain in 15 days on Treasure Bond ETF (TLT)
- 256% gain in 6 days on Financial SPDR Fund (XLF)
- 100% gain in 5 days on ProShares Dow30 (UDOW)
- 110% gain in 14 days on Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)
- 181% gain in 16 days on Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)
- 101% gain in 24 hours on Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)
- 138% gain in 10 days on ProShares UltraPro QQQ (TQQQ)
In this case, the time factors in the chart I just showed you marked 3 different turning points in the market:
- The meltdown in early September
- The crash of 2020 and
- The meltdown in October 2018
This is also how I've successfully called huge turning points – four times in the gold sector... three times on semiconductors... three times in the bond sector... twice in the S&P 500 and more.
My newest prediction?
December 23rd will see a huge turning point in the market.
Mark my words...
What's coming to the market on that date could turn your entire net gain for 2020 either negative or positive... and potentially make you more money than you've made all year.
So how does Gann strategy work, exactly? And what should you be doing right now to prepare?
