Why Cycle 9’ers Don’t Need a Bull Market

By Adam O'Dell  |  March 18, 2019

I don’t get irritated easily. But when I hear someone say, “Yeah, but we’ve been in a bull market…” Well, you better hold me back!

It’s usually uttered by someone who’s jealous of someone else’s profits… Perhaps profits that were made on the long side of the market. Perhaps not.

Sometimes the jealous fool doesn’t even understand how you made your profits. He’s just sore he isn’t making big profits, too. So he attempts to somehow diminish the validity of your big profits – saying, “Yeah, but we’ve been in a bull market” – as if making big profits is somehow easy…

I call bullshit.

Forget About the Bull Market

We’ve been in a bull market since 2009 – well, until last year, perhaps. And I’ve been running Cycle 9 Alert since 2012.

But Cycle 9 is not a “bull market” strategy. It’s a trend and momentum strategy, which means it “goes” where the trends are… where the momentum is…“long” or “short”… into stocks, and stock ETFs, of course. But also into other asset classes – such as bonds, commodities and currencies – which are now easily accessible to the average retail investor through ETFs.

Last year we made an 80% profit shorting a utilities sector ETF…

We also made a 69% profit on a bullish oil play

And an 86% profit on a bullish U.S. Treasury bond trade…

This year, we locked in a 100% profit (in just one week!) on the first half of a short health care position (the second half is still open).

So, can “Jealous Joe” really say, “Yeah, but we’ve been in a bull market…” to those handsome profits?

Yes, it’s true that the bull market has been a great opportunity. And we’ve certainly “made hay while the sun’s been shining,” so to speak.

We’ve captured lucrative profits on dozens of “long stock” trades – from 113% on a silver miner… to 430% on a grocery distributor!

But still, you’ll start a fight with me if you suggest these opportunities were somehow easy to find, invest into, and stick with.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with making a fist-full of money during a bull market. That’s what you’re supposed to do! Anyone who grumbles at your success is almost guaranteed to be someone who missed out… someone who was just too scared to be in the bull market, and is now jealous and hating on you.

A systematic strategy like Cycle 9 Alert truly shines because it can help you get invested in a bull market and stay invested in a bull market, even when you don’t know when that bull market will end.

That’s a great thing!

What’s more, my Cycle 9 Alert system doesn’t depend on a bull market to make money.

Again, it’s a trend and momentum strategy… not a “bull market” strategy.

In 2013 – a “raging bull” year – we made an 82% profit betting against a copper miner’s stock.

In 2014 we made a 54% profit shorting a Chinese tech company (which is now no longer trading).

You see, despite its length, there have been soft spots in the market’s climb. Before the soft spot we’re in now, there was the one that spanned late-2014 to early-2016.

Sure, we were in the middle of a bull market. But the S&P 500 lost more than 10% between September 2014 and February 2016. It felt like the bull market was ending.

And that’s no “easy” bull market, if you ask me!

Yet, my Cycle 9 Alert system adapted just fine, finding a number of profitable alternative market plays, including…

A 108% profit on a municipal bond ETF…

And a 316% profit on a “stock insurance” hedge play…

Those were in addition to the “short” stock plays I recommended.

The bottom line is: Yes, my Cycle 9’ers have made money hand over fist in this bull market.But not because of the bull market.

My system goes long and short…

It works on stocks and bonds, commodities and currencies… And with our rather short holding period, of just two to three months, it’s more than nimble enough to adapt to changing market conditions.

That’s why we haven’t had a single down year yet. And why I’m confident 2019 will be just as lucrative – “bull market” or not!

So, I’ve convinced my publisher to reopen access to my Cycle 9 Alert service as early in 2019 as possible so that you can take full advantage of the adaptive system sooner rather than later. Until this Thursday, March 21, 2019, you can lock yourself in for this limited-time offer.

With that being said, all I ask is that you click here to learn more about this opportunity.
