The Coronavirus Reality Gap: The Only Chart that Matters

Every time my phone starts ringing off the hook with TV networks asking me to make an appearance on their shows, I know there’s a Reality Gap big enough to make some real money.

In the last 13 days, I’ve been invited on 7 times – talking about the coronavirus and what it means to markets and individual stocks.

The News Media is having a field day over China’s coronavirus outbreak.

Every minute there’s a new update on infections, possible mutations, comparisons to SARS…

This human tragedy is being milked for all it’s worth.

The reason why is simple: fear sells. No TV news segment, no news website, no cable news update is complete without a coronavirus update, because that’s what gets views.

And more views mean more money selling ads.

It’s overtaken the top of the news agenda – the President’s impeachment trial, Monday’s Iowa caucus, even the record-breaking wildfires still raging in Australia.

Not to mention the things you can actually act on, like Amazon’s extraordinary earnings surprise…

And the News Media isn’t the only culprit here, either.

Big Government is getting in on the game too, with health organizations under-reacting, then over-reacting, and now issuing jarring statements:

This morning, just after 10:00am, this headline came out – “CDC: Preparing as If Coronavirus Is ‘The Next Pandemic'” – leading to a 250-point drop in the Dow.

And lost amid all this noise is a Reality Gap between what’s being said and what should really matter…

The truth.

And the truth is, we’re turning the corner on this outbreak. As the very numbers the News Media use to whip up fear show, coronavirus cases are peaking.

The end is in sight.

So it’s time for you to position yourself for the buying opportunity to come

Here’s the Data Coronavirus Fear Mongers Aren’t Showing You…

The headlines from this past week have been absolutely dominated by stories about the coronavirus outbreak.

That should come as no surprise. Headlines about epidemics are gripping and keep you reading.

But the media’s focus on the fear that surrounds the latest outbreak from China is creating a Reality Gap between peoples’ perception of how bad the outbreak is and how much global economies and markets have actually been affected.

Thus far, the market has had a relatively muted effect. In today’s video, I’m going to show you a few resources, including this interactive map, that are very helpful in seeing the true scope of the outbreak.

I’m also going to show you the key factors to watch for that will guide our outlook on the market as this story progresses.

And finally, I’m going to reveal what the market’s reaction to the coronavirus scare means from a technical standpoint, and how it is altering our trading strategy going forward.
