I’ve given a lot of thought as to what’s going to happen in the next three years. Specifically, what I am going to do with my own portfolio and my own money. I have scoped out several markets that I think are going to offer excellent opportunities, no matter what happens to the economy. Yes, you heard me right. No matter what happens to the economy, I believe that this “Perfect Portfolio” will work for you in the next 36 months whether you have 10,000 or 10,000,000 million dollars.
In this video I show you exactly the number of trades you would’ve made with the “Perfect Portfolio”.
We back tested the portfolio using our “Trade Triangle” technology for 42 months through some of the toughest, most difficult markets the world has ever seen. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the results of these two portfolios.
