Turmoil in the Middle East Makes this Reality Gap Trade in Oil Even Better

The reality gap I’d like to explore today is one which the U.S. oil market already had the set-up to be a huge money maker. And then it got better.

The U.S. airstrike which killed top Iranian general, Qassim Suleimani, sent oil prices spiking higher in the Thursday to Friday overnight market, greatly improving our entry for this reality gap trade. I’ll explain this profit-making opportunity in more detail, but here’s a quick take on this morning’s market-moving news and what we can expect.

The financial markets are experiencing significant turmoil after the airstrike that I mentioned above. Defensive investments, or places where money flows in a flight to safety, have jumped higher. These include the Japanese Yen, the Swiss Franc, gold, and U.S. and German bonds.

That’s a typical response when uncertainty hits the market – and a military strike like this definitely qualifies. But by the time I started writing this update to the column at 7:00 a.m. EST on Friday morning, the market reaction was already changing.

The market’s fear gauge – the CBOE Volatility Index ($VIX) – which had spiked higher on the news, was already falling, as were Oil prices. And the major market indexes like the S&P 500 had already found their lows of the morning.

In short, the market’s reaction to the airstrike is acting as a test of how much geopolitical risk matters in the markets right now. Said another way, there’s a very good chance that the market just absorbs this news as a temporary blip. And that will be very good news for today’s trade in a struggling U.S. shale oil producer…

The U.S. shale oil industry has revolutionized the crude oil market. And it was a major – if somewhat behind the scenes – driver of the recovery in the U.S. economy since 2009. Take a look at this production chart:

The impact of this shale oil boom on global oil economics has been immense.

But like the retail resurgence of 2019, the story of U.S. shale oil emergence is littered with haves and have nots. And as we’ll see, right now it’s easier to make money on one of the players that has struggled – and will continue to do so.

There’s a reality gap in the shale oil world. The widely held belief is that the rising tide of crude oil production that we see in the chart above is lifting all ships. The reality is that some companies could be in big trouble because of the way they have raised money to finance their wells. And we can make money with that information that almost no one is telling you about it.

Some in the financial news media are even saying that U.S. oil companies are the best stocks to buy for 2020.

That prognostication is just people talking their book (touting the stocks they own in an effort to drive up the price) and it’s dangerous to your wealth.

Now, I’m not saying that the shale industry is going under. Far from it. The “haves” will thrive, much as they did in the retail industry.

The reality gap is happening between what you’re being told about U.S. fracking, and what’s really happening on the ground…

More and more, small companies are about to go under. And you can make money while they do.

Here’s what’s happening


How You Can Bridge the Gap to Achieving Your Financial Resolutions

Happy New Year’s to you!

‘Tis the season to examine what we really want to achieve in the new year and set our resolutions towards it.

But it’s one thing to have a goal, and quite another to accomplish it.

And that’s exactly where I want to try to help you.

Today, I want to discuss the Reality Gap between what we would like to have happen and what actually happens. Those two things often wind up being very different for many people. According to research on the topic, only about 8% of all New Year’s resolutions are actually achieved.

In my experience, successfully reaching a goal starts with figuring out the Why and the How of your goals (which I’ll be going over in greater detail in the video below).

From there, it’s all about developing a plan to do the things – day in and day out – that will help you get there. These are things I provide detailed guidance on to subscribers of 10-Minute Millionaire Insider throughout the entire year, in addition to potentially life-changing income from my “Paycheck Plan” and “Money Lab” trade recommendations.

Finally, I’ll also provide you with an update on what’s been going on in the market recently. With new all-time highs being achieved, there’s been a lot of talk about the market experiencing a pullback.

While that’s always a concern, there’s really only one thing you need to watch right now, and I’ll show you exactly what that is in today’s video. Until then, there’s nothing else to do but to continue to buy strong stocks with strong amounts of money flowing into them.

My newest trading strategy does just that. With the help of breakthrough technology and an exclusive partnership that allows me access to data only a select few people in the world are allowed to see, I’m now able to track all of the money that is being invested in the world as it flows between asset classes, sectors, all the way down to individual stocks.

This data gives me the unique ability to spot which stocks have the most money moving in or out, every single day.

About eight weeks ago I started making trade recommendations to a small group of traders through BetaFlow, an exclusive beta test of this new trading strategy. In that small amount of time, participants have had the chance to close 14 trades for a 100% gain or more!

That includes…

  • 100% on BBY Calls
  • 101% on W Puts
  • 111% on UNP Calls
  • And 136% on AAPL Calls

…just to name a few.

In the near future, I’ll be releasing this revolutionary new trading strategy to a wider audience. To make sure that you’re kept up-to-date on all of the developments as that time draws nearer, be sure to join the BetaFlow mailing list.
