Brace for a market unlike anything you’ve ever seen

stormy market

This week is all about the Fed. 

Daniel joins me once again to discuss yesterday’s interest rate hike, and what stood out about Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s comments.

Prepare for a rant on how Powell’s actions could push the market far lower… 

I also break down why the U.S. dollar will keep rising… and how it will hurt the global economy. 

Bottom line: It’s time to play defense. If you don’t have portfolio protection in place, this strategy is one of the best ways to reduce risk… and start profiting from a falling market.

Editor’s note:

Bank of America, Reuters, and even Ray Dalio predict we could see major pullbacks in the near future… making the unique “bear market profit” strategy Frank mentions on today’s show even more effective.

Every time a stock pulls back, there’s a chance to see a HUGE profit… just do this.
