  • Energize Your Portfolio with Futures!

    At Your Desk (It's a Webinar!)

    REGISTERED ATTENDEES: Don't forget to tap here to get your login link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/6815218742924980993 ­DO THIS WELL BEFORE THE WEBINAR to make sure you can enter on time and not miss a minute of this great presentation! Of all the asset classes discussed in our meetings, the one LEAST covered has been FUTURES. Yet there's ample reason to believe that this asset class may offer the MOST opportunity in the coming year. • 2015 has seen an unprecedented drop in commodity prices. • Commodities are currently the most undervalued sector in the market, and at their most undervalued point in history with respect to direction. • Over the past four years, while stock prices inched higher, commodities prices headed lower. • There is "massive divergence" between stock and commodities prices, more than we have ever seen before. • "Reversion to the mean" suggests that change may be in the wind, offering stellar trading opportunities for those who know how to exploit them. Join our charter Group Mentor PHIL FLYNN for an information-packed webinar that will step you through the basics of futures trading, ways to play (refinery stocks, options, ETFs, mutual funds), how to find actionable trading ideas, and more. UPDATE: As an additional bonus, all attendees will receive a free download of the highly-rated Vantage Point software used to analyze and execute futures trades. (Retail value $2700. Monthly data feed subscription $30 after first month.) ONE lucky raffle prize winner will score a free one-on-one consultation with Phil to jumpstart your own futures trading. Although the webinar will be recorded for future playback, only "live" attendees are eligible for the free download and the consultation with Phil.
