Jeff’s Note: We’re just days away from a “Summer of Hell.” In the past, stocks have dropped as much as 17% during this time…

Buy and hold investors could be hit the hardest. Meanwhile, Wall Street has created a new investment vehicle that lets them sidestep these crashes…

Fortunately, I’ve honed an easy-to-use strategy using this same vehicle for the chance to get paid hundreds each day the market is open. To learn more, tune into my special presentation on Wednesday, July 12 at 8 pm ET right here.

The stock market rally this year has been no coincidence.

It’s the result of a four-year cycle that has rung true 72 years in a row.

Yet, few are aware it even exists.

Right now, we’re in the third year of this cycle.

And based on the past, stocks tend to perform quite well during this time. Most investors are likely sitting on big gains right now.

That’s because the third year of this cycle has produced positive returns 78% of the time since 1928. And, the average return for the year was 13.5% versus a 7.7% return on average for all years.

So far in 2023, the S&P 500 is already up 15%. So, the market is certainly on schedule. But, that might be a problem this summer.

You see, while the annual bullishness of the third year in this cycle is a widely followed phenomenon, there is a “cycle within the cycle” that is quite bearish and likely to cause some trouble this summer.

July and August tend to be poor months for the stock market during the third year.

For example, in 2019 the S&P 500 was trading near 3000 just before Independence Day. By mid-August, the index was at 2840. That’s a 5% drop in about five weeks.

In 2015, the S&P 500 dropped almost 10% between early July and late August.

In 2011, the index lost 17%.

And in 2007, the S&P 500 dropped 9% in four weeks as this “cycle within a cycle” played out.

If history repeats this year, or even if it just rhymes a little bit, investors could be in for a tough time over the next two months.

Much of the gains the market has enjoyed this year could be given up.

But if you have the right strategy to deal with the volatility, not only can you sidestep the coming decline, you can profit from it.

In fact, you could get paid every day the stock market is open. Even in times of extreme volatility…

I’ll be sharing one such strategy during a special presentation on Wednesday, July 12 at 8 p.m. ET. It has to do with a trading vehicle that wasn’t available to investors until only recently.

And, it has quickly become one of my favorite strategies.

The best part is it takes just one ticker to potentially get paid over and over again. Click here now to find out more.

Best regards and good trading,
