2000 in the Cards. What's Next?

Yesterday I talked about the trend so far in July being sideways. However, on Tuesday the bulls tried to wrestle control back to their side.

In fact, they were successful in making a new intraday high at 1986. Just in the end stocks slipped back a notch producing only the second highest close in history.

It seems that earnings are strong enough...economic data too. This should get us knocking on the door of 2000 shortly. My bet is that it is in the cards by the end of this week. Next week at the latest.

What happens after that is the greater mystery. I think consolidating for a while underneath 2000 is the most likely outcome. Yet breaking above is not farfetched as the long term bullish trend should not be overlooked.

So that means investors should stay with a bullish bias. However, some modest profit taking around 2000 on your most aggressive positions is advised.

Dear Reader,

We just received a very urgent opportunity from our friends over at Money Map Press.

It involves our colleague Dr. Kent Moors and a little-known construction site in a small Louisiana town.

Take a look:

You can see the site contains five large storage containers near a large body of water.

Seems pretty ordinary, right?

Think again.

Here's the exact same image, but from a distance this time...

What you're seeing is actually a $10 billion construction site. The areas highlighted in red and orange represent trains currently being built.

Most people don't understand the significance of this location.

And that's a shame because according to Dr. Moors - it could change your retirement for the better.

You see, when this construction site goes online next year, he believes it will generate billions of dollars in new wealth for thousands of people, right here, in this country.

That's why I strongly encourage you to check this out.

For the immediate details, go here, right now.
