The Future for Stocks

Stocks are riding a 4 day winning streak to a close at 1652 on Tuesday. And looking back to the recent lows on June 24th the stock market is up a healthy +5.9%.

But Reity, how does it look going forward?

We are only about 2% away from the all-time high of 1687 set in late May. Certainly it seems we are on course for that level and likely up to 1700. However, I sense that point will offer the next gut check for investors with a likely extended consolidation period to follow.

Traders may want to take some profits there and then reload with a likely year-end target between 1750 and 1800.

The End of the "Made-in-China" Era

The 21st century industrial revolution has already begun. All because of an incredible invention that's made in America.

Business Insider calls it "the next trillion dollar industry." The Economist compares its impact to the steam engine and the printing press. And technology experts -- like the guys who brought you the BMW 3-series, the F-35 fighter jet, and -- think it could be "bigger than the internet."

A new investment video reveals the impossible (but real) technology that could make you impossibly rich. Watch it now, before the skeptics on Wall Street wise up and start looking for their piece of the action.
