October 21, 1929, was a dark day for the stock market.
Investors panicked that morning after a week of losses.
Back then, traders placed orders via telephone or telegraph. But the lines couldn’t handle a frenzy of activity.
Investors tried to dump millions of shares, causing huge delays. It took over an hour for stock prices to update at one point, creating further chaos.
It was a sign that things were about to get worse. Much worse.
Three days later, the infamous “Black Thursday” kicked off the worst stock market crash in history.
As you can see, everything can change in the blink of an eye.
My point isn’t to scare you, though. Consider this a reminder of how important it is to always have a backup plan.
That’s why I want to let you know about a trading system that makes money even when stocks are falling.
Trading With Algorithms
My colleague Clint Lee says: “As long as stocks are moving, there’s always money to be made.”
You may not know this, but Clint was one of the original “quants” on Wall Street. That’s short for quantitative analyst.
These are the geniuses who use math and algorithms to trade.
Nowadays, many hedge funds use quantitative trading strategies.
That enables high-frequency trading, where computers buy and sell stocks in a fraction of a second.
Clint used his techniques to manage over $2 billion in assets — with incredible success.
U.S. News & World Report even ranked one of his funds No. 1 in its category.
Today, he’s using those same skills to help everyday Americans.
And let me tell you: The results have been as good as you’d expect.
Protect Your Portfolio With Options
When Clint was on Wall Street, he used options all the time.
He used them to hedge his trades … to increase his profits … and even to protect his portfolios from market corrections.
That’s because, with options, you can make money just as easily from falling stock prices as you could from rising ones.
For example, during an intensive backtest against the last three years of stock market data, Clint’s system targeted Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (Nasdaq: AMD) as the stock started to rally.
The result: a 201% profit in just 41 days.
But his system also triggered when IBM Corp. (NYSE: IBM) started a strong downward trend.
IBM lost 12.7%. But Clint’s strategy could’ve made a 177% profit in just 27 days by using options.
Clint tested his system like this with hundreds of individual stocks against thousands of different data points.
It’s the same way he used to validate his techniques on Wall Street.
And it really works.
In the last nine months, Clint has had a 95% win rate, with an average return of 56% per trade.
Countdown to Profits
Clint’s strategy is so powerful, it turned $25,000 into $300,000 in just three years.
That’s a 12X return!
And what makes it even more impressive is that this result includes both the winning trades and the losing ones.
It’s that good.
But don’t just take my word for it.
Clint’s brand-new “Profit Countdown” webinar shows you exactly how his strategy works.
In his presentation, he explains how his system starts a “countdown” when it’s triggered.
You don’t want to miss this chance to learn from one of Wall Street’s original “quant” traders.
