No one has a crystal ball and can be 100% even with all of our tools. There is no single algorithm you can devise that will predict every turn of a market. Markets are not isolated. If they were 100% success ratios would be possible. Wildcard events create panic in markets and are usually the result of overseas events. With that said, a 100% hit ratio is not required to make exponential gains on your capital and build geometric growth. There is a once-in-a-decade opportunity which has developed in the metals markets and will be a trend for the next 4 years. We focus on the metals markets because what an average trader can make in a good 2-3 month trending trade in the metals market is comparable what an average good investor could make in an entire year investing in the stock market. We have been in a highly profitable metals trade for week and will continue to take advantage of this generational opportunity for the next 4 years while we harvest incredible gains. We urge all investors to take advantage of this incredible opportunity and gain more financial security in each of your lives.
