This Upcoming “Black Swan” Event Could Wipe Out Your Life Savings
First “Brexit,” then Trump.
In just the last six months, the world has had two “black swan” events. These are rare events that very few people see coming. When these kinds of events happen, the market reaction can be dramatic.
Heading into the year, most people thought Great Britain would stay in the European Union (EU). When it voted to leave on June 23, investors from London to Tokyo were shocked. A panic followed that knocked more than $3 trillion from the global stock market in two days.
Last week, investors were caught off guard again.
Most people thought Hillary would run away with the election. When Trump pulled off the “unthinkable,” no one knew what to do.
At first, U.S. stocks plunged. That was supposed to happen if Trump won. But they quickly changed course. Over the last few days, U.S. stocks have broken out to record highs.
• To be fair, neither of these events was impossible to predict…
Casey Research founder Doug Casey actually predicted that Trump would win months ago. He even made a couple side bets on the outcome.
We don’t bring this up to brag about Doug’s “guru sense.”
We’re telling you this because it shows that you can predict events most people can’t ever anticipate. And if you’re right, you can make a lot of money.
• Less than three weeks from now, we think another “black swan” event will take place…
If this event goes the way we expect, millions of people could see their life savings go up in smoke. The world’s biggest economy could start to unravel.
You might find this hard to believe. But as you’re about to see, we aren’t the only ones worried about this.
The good news is that you don’t have to be a victim. Today, we’ll show you how to turn this coming crisis into big returns.
But before we get to that, you need to understand something…
• Brexit and Trump’s surprise victory had more in common than most people think…
You see, working-class people in England and the United States are fed up right now. They feel like the system is “rigged”…that “the establishment” doesn’t care about them.
That’s why both countries voted for radical change. Even President Obama admits this. Bloomberg Politics reported on Tuesday:
President Barack Obama said that fear of globalization and suspicion of government institutions and elites powered both the U.K.’s vote to exit the European Union and Donald Trump’s election as the next U.S. president.
“Did I recognize there was anger and frustration in the American population? Of course I did,” Obama said in answer to a question about whether he saw parallels between Trump’s election and Brexit.
• To their credit, the American people have plenty of reasons to be frustrated…
After all, the economy has grown at an annualized rate of just 2.1% since 2009. This makes the current “recovery” the slowest since World War II.
