How to Trade the Market’s #1 Fear

Last week, Bryan and I mentioned several catalysts lining up for us this week in Catalyst Cash-Outs live.

But first – it’s important to address an elephant in the room.

Yesterday, the Dow was down 300 points, and some of the indexes were down 1% on the day. That’s a pretty sizable drop.

Because of this recent selloff, I believe traders should be focused on one thing this week… Stagflation.

The term “Stagflation” hasn’t popped up for a while. But here’s everything you need to know about how it affects the markets.

What is stagflation?

Stagflation is a period where you have lower growth, and higher inflation.

Right now, the markets are worried about entering a period where costs increase, which makes the Fed more likely to keep interest rates high.

Combine that with rising yields and consumer confidence dropping for the first time in awhile, and you have a recipe for stagflation fears. Stagflation is not good for stocks, because it’s the worst possible case for the economy.

However, it’s important to remember that the market is just STARTING to think about the POSSIBILITY of stagflation. So it’s not there yet.

Over the last 2 weeks, we’ve been adjusting our trades accordingly in preparation. We recently got positioned on safe-haven metals like gold and silver.

In fact, two weeks ago I got in at a great entry point on the low for Franco Nevada, and as you’ll see by the chart below, it’s already looking strong.

This week, Bryan and I focused on the JOLTs report in Catalyst Cash-Outs Live. We’ve discovered the JOLTS report as one of the most potent government reports for the strongest potential market moves. And we have a slick strategy to take advantage of any job, inflation or stagflation related news. It works whether the market goes up OR down – you just need to a BIG move to see profits.

Today, we saw that move happen and booked an overnight win!
