You can watch the news flow.
You can study all the charts and indicators you like.
You can dig into financial statements… balance sheets… and earnings reports…
If you want to get an edge in the market — to invest in a stock or asset before other people do — there’s a lot you can try.
But what if it just came down to buying on the right day?
Imagine you could be a rich and successful investor just by buying the index on certain days during the year… and staying out of the market on others.
I’m not even talking about specific stocks here.
Just buy the market on a handful of days. And sell it on others.
It sounds too simple.
And yet — as weird as this feels to write — it’s true.
Or at least we believe it to be.
With the help of former Bloomberg analyst, Eoin Treacy, we’ve looked at 17 years’ worth of daily market data…
And it appears to prove… that there are days when it’s better to be long the market… and days where it’s better to be out of the market completely.
Simulated past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.In fact, compare to simply holding the market over the course of the period we studied… this strategy shows you’d have outperformed by 322%.
Just take that in for a moment.
This is potentially HUGE.
Now… what if someone were to put all of those dates into a calendar for 2018…
…A calendar you could download into your phone?
