A Trading Strategy That Consistently Beats All Major Indexes

Are you looking to outperform the market and optimize your profits but are not sure how to pick the right stocks?  Has investing become a chore?  Do you find yourself investing in hot stocks after they have made their big move? Would you like to learn how I increased my portfolio by over 400% in under 7 years? Do you want to discover how I have outperformed the market over the past 3 years by a margin of 5 to 1?

Do You Hate Research? . . . I do!

I have always wanted to find an investment strategy that made sense.  An investment strategy in which I do not need to know the intricacies of the market, predict market trends or follow specific stocks.  How can I get the inside information of what is hot before the rest of the market knows?  I can't. Nor do I need to.

Plus, I don't have that kind of time to commit to in-depth research.  Like you, I have a regular job that I need to devote my time to.  I am not a day trader; nor do I want to spend all of my free time on the computer doing research.  Always following the stock market and getting stock quotes is not how I want to spend my free time.

I Avoid Individual Stocks . . . they are too unreliable!

Everybody wants to buy low and sell high. While millions of people do make money this way (and many millions loose money), I have found an easier and more effective way to use the market to my advantage. I do not trade in stocks.  I do what I can to avoid individual stocks.  And I consistently beat the market . . . month after month after month.

If not stocks, what's the alternative?

Like many people, I got heavily involved in the stock market in the mid to late Nineties.  Tech stocks were going through the roof and I, like everybody else, wanted a part of the action.  It seemed an easy way to make money.  Everybody was getting rich.  You did not need a special investment strategy to beat the market.

During this time, I engrossed myself in the financial markets.  I wanted to learn as much as I could without giving up my day job.  I was trying to find the next best tech stock, IPOs and the occasional pre-IPO offering.  But it was not until I discovered options trading that I discovered an investment strategy (The Yager Trading Strategy) that can work in any kind of market . . . Bull, Bear or stagnant.

That's right...OPTION trading!

And I am not talking about stock options or writing covered calls. Options trading...I started selling options on S&P futures, using different methods and trading strategies.  And I did well. VERY well.

Between July 1998 and January 2000 (a span of 18 months), from my option trading system, I turned an initial $25,000 investment into $167,615.  That's over 670% increase.  And this was not paper money where you buy a stock and it has a certain listed value.  This was real, taxed income.  Profits collected on a monthly basis.

Market fluctuations and volatility have diminished greatly since then...reducing the premiums.  Those types of returns are no longer available, but the option trading strategy is still very sound.  I still consistently beat the market.  Even the years the DJIA, Nasdaq and S&P were all down, I posted more than a 22% gain.

For the preceding 12 months (May '06 through April '07) this is how my strategy, The Yager Trading Strategy, performed:

S & P 500-----17.3%
Yager Trading Strategy-----32.2%

A Spiraling Market and Rising Penny Stock Opportunities

It's been a wild and wooly couple of weeks on the international stock markets. But is the recent slide grinding to a halt...or just taking a breather before tumbling some more? And more importantly, what does it mean to astute penny stock investors?

Wall Street recently stumbled to its worst week of the year, and global stock markets fell dramatically on concerns about rising interest rates and slowing growth. After rising almost 9% in the first four months of the year, the Dow Jones industrial average has fallen about 6.5% from a six-year high, reached May 10, 2006.

Stocks have been ailing because penny stock investors fear the Fed could be so focused on inflation that it ignores signs of an economic slowdown, raises interest rates too high and sends the economy into a recession.

Global stock markets were sent reeling last week after golden-tongued U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke shocked penny stock investors in saying the Fed will continue raising interest rates to keep inflation in check.

And that decision will have a direct impact on the penny stock market. Higher interest rates hurt penny stock prices because investors believe it will curb economic growth and corporate profits.

But why is inflation heating up? Higher energy costs. Traders and penny stock investors are also worried that with the hurricane season officially under way, Gulf Coast refineries and oil production sites could be damaged again this summer and fall.

And higher interest rates have the ability to affect the entire economy. Finance charges on credit cards will rise. So too will rates on mortgages and home equity loans, putting additional pressure on homebuyers and a softening housing market. Ultimately, it will cost more to borrow for expansion.

But does this signal doom-and-gloom for the penny stock market? Au contraire. While the temptation to sell everything can be overwhelming, some see this as a great opportunity. "I would not be selling. I would tend to be buying," said one New York analyst.

So how exactly is this an opportunity? It just so happens that many companies caught in the market's downward spiral are cheaper than they were a few weeks ago. And as any seasoned penny stock investor will tell you, buying a great penny stock when it's been beaten down isn't a bad way to make money over the long haul.

If you can stomach some of the volatility that is. While many blue chip investors have difficulty handling the market's's par for the course.

So, "snap out of it," said another watcher. A month of dizzying selling has brought the markets into an attractive range. Is it possible the markets will fall more? Absolutely. After all, no penny stock is a sure thing. But one thing is certain: "Stocks are much cheaper now than they were two months ago."
