Wrong. Wrong! WRONG!

Yesterday I took some cheap shots at hyperactive traders who immediately sold Wednesday when Fed minutes showed a stronger leaning towards the taper. And indeed these folks jumped ship too early once again as markets raced higher on Thursday.

Let me repeat what should be obvious by now. The Fed cannot keep QE forever. And they will start to unwind ONLY when the economy looks strong enough.

So QE Taper = Vote of confidence in the economy = Strong reason to buy stocks...not sell.

Congrats to all of you who understand this equation and continue to benefit from this attractive environment for stock investments.

The Greatest Single Investment Idea

No it's not "Buy and Hold Forever" or "Buy Low. Sell High." Instead, it rides the most powerful force impacting stock prices. For more than a quarter century, it has nearly tripled the market with an average gain of +26% per year. This has been verified by an independent accounting firm.

You can easily master it in your own home without a class or seminar. Don't miss the unique opportunity that ends today, November 22.
