INSIGHT FROM ALESSIO RASTANI ON IMPENDING MARKET DIVE
Alessio Rastani had some very intriguing comments about the recent activity in the markets, and it is something we all need to take heed to. He has been consistently one of the best market analysts that I have come across, and he is usually right when he makes educated guesses about future market direction and trends analysis.
If we are all prepared, we can position ourselves to not only survive a market crash, but to benefit from it. They key is being smart about how and when you invest your money, and the best advice is to mirror the biggest players in the markets.
Across the stock market and cryptocurrency market, we have touched upon some major critical levels since the beginning of the year. In February, we had a panic sell moment, and from all indications, we are about to retest those levels.
Jason Geppert put out a report on Friday that the “smart money”, or institutional money, is pulling out of the stock market. If this causes a drop below the 200-day moving average and go deeper beyond the February lows, this will trigger a Dow Theory Sell Signal.
When this happens, the sell signal triggers sell programs across the markets that will drive the S&P 500 and the Stock Market much lower due to these automatic market orders. This will cause the stock market to fall hard. This is something we will have to plan for.
If the stock market holds when it touches on the 200EMA and recovers, this will be a very good indication of a turnaround. But we all need to be prepared for what will happen if the market violates this critical support level.
If you are investing your hard-earned money on the stock market or the cryptocurrency market, slow your roll. Be smart about it. Now is definitely NOT the time to risk your retirement, your savings, or invest anything you cannot afford to lose. The only way to invest in this dangerous time is to plan for the worst.
Experienced traders can "short" the market, or bet on stocks and crypto coins to fall, rather than rise. This is a super dangerous strategy, and you must have a margin account to do so. But if you lose, you will lose big.
Another method that experienced traders employ to gain from a down trend is to buy on dips, and sell on rallies. This is also dangerous, but I have seen this done with great success. It is much less dangerous than playing the market on margin, however.
The best thing to do is to study the market each and every day, listening to the top market forecasters so you can determine the point at which the market will turn around and start to climb again.
The stock market works on long cycles, as long as 13 years at a time. It rotates from a time of quiet accumulation with very little volatility to a time of heightened trading volume and a slight bump in stock prices, which is called "consolidation". Next comes a major run-up, or "Bull Market", and then the institutional investors pull out and take profits. That is called "distribution".
What normally happens during the distribution phase is that institutional investors, or "smart money", sells into the frenzy while the general public continues to buy with reckless abandon. Once the average Joe investors exhaust all of their resources, the prices drop like a rock. By that time, the smart money investors are long gone, having made tremendous profits.
Right now, I believe that the institutional investors have come to realize that cryptocurrency is the future. Smart money investors are not going to sit back and watch the general public amass the wealth of the world on a major change. They will position themselves to protect their assets. They have the power to drive the markets down to the basement, and then snap up the low priced cryptocurrencies at bargain prices.
This way, they end up on top of things once the changeover is complete. This is exactly what we are seeing in the oil industry. For decades, the oil industry denied that clean energy (like solar and wind power) would become the future. But now we are watching the oil industry giants lead the way investing heavily into clean energy. The result? They will still be on top of the world when the paradigm shift has completed.
Keep that in mind while you watch the market action in the coming months. Do your due diligence, plan for the worst, and capitalize on it.
