My name is Mark Skousen.

I’m a former CIA economist… Columbia professor… best-selling author… and investor advocate for over 40 years.

I’ve published perhaps the longest-running economic newsletter in the country since 1980.

And I’m also a “perma-bull.”

I’ve always believed that America would find a way to win…

That stocks would go higher… that the American economy would thrive… and that business owners would innovate and improve our lives.

In other words, I’m an optimist… always have been.

In fact, I kicked off my career with a very bold optimistic prediction all the way back in 1980.

The very first promotional headline I ever published said:

“Reaganomics Will Work! Sell Your Gold and Silver and Buy Stocks!”

People thought I was crazy.

After all, we were coming out of the 1970s – a time marked by crime, inflation, the energy crisis, and the failures of the Carter administration.

Gold understandably soared during the ’70s.

People at the time were NOT optimistic.

But I was convinced America – led by the new president, Ronald Reagan – would achieve new levels of prosperity.

And I was right!

Reaganomics did work!

The S&P 500 more than tripled in the 1980s.

Then… in the 1990s, my optimism was tested once more. I debated several doom-and-gloomers who predicted a major depression and bear market in the ’90s.

When Bill Clinton got elected, there was plenty of reason to doubt America.

We were faced with higher taxes, rampant corruption, and more regulation… yet I bet on America again.

I predicted the Nasdaq would double… and then double a second time.

And my optimism proved correct.

The Nasdaq climbed from 700 to nearly 4,000 by the end of the decade.

Even after the housing crisis in 2008, when America was on the brink of financial ruin… I still remained optimistic.

I told my readers that stocks were a “screaming buy.”

And since then, the S&P has more than quadrupled.

The point is… in 40 years, I’ve always held an unshakeable belief in the strength of the American people.

Until recently.

For the first time in my 40-year career, I put out a red alert in January 2020 to my readers that they should be worried about stocks.

At the time, few listened.

After all, we were still in a raging bull market.

But I saw the dangers of overreaction to the coronavirus, of a Fed that kept interest rates too low for too long, and of a media hell-bent on doing anything to create a new recession before the election.

And now that it all has come true… I’m coming to you once again with a major warning.

With the economy still in limbo, and a new democrat President anxious to hand out billions of dollars in freebies… 

I believe stocks are at risk of a continued downturn that may last for the next four years – at the very least.

When all is said and done…

The America you and I grew up with will quite possibly be gone forever.

Now, I know that’s a bold statement.

And as a “perma-bull,” it’s not one I make lightly.

In fact, I’m hoping this is one prediction I get completely wrong.

But if you follow the evidence, as I have, you will soon see why we could be in for a world of hurt in the months ahead.

I believe it’s possible that stocks could experience a bigger drop than at any point in my lifetime.

Which is why I made this report for you.

I’m about to explain to you exactly what’s going on.

BUT I’m also going to give you the perfect solution so that you are fully protected.

You see… I’ve found the world’s best investment for troubled waters in the stock market.

For starters…

This investment CANNOT drop.

Let me emphasize that very clearly:


Even if stocks crater by 70% or more… you would not lose one penny.

It’s the ultimate in wealth protection.

Yet, the investment also offers tremendous upside.

From January 1, 2000, to January 1, 2019… a two-decade period in which we saw TWO remarkable bull runs in the S&P 500…

This investment actually performed better than stocks.

In fact, from 2000 to 2008, it nearly DOUBLED the S&P 500.

And I expect that to continue.

In short, this no-risk investment means that your money is 100% protected and cannot go down if stocks collapse. BUT it also could hand you more money than stocks if they continue to rise.

It’s the best of both worlds.

I believe that every American needs to start moving their money into this special type of investment right now.

In fact, I believe in this investment so much as a safe haven… that during the pandemic-driven crash of 2020, I helped my wife use this exact investment to fully protect her retirement funds.

Instead of watching her accounts plummet, like so many Americans, her retirement doubled in value instead.

Over the next few minutes, I’ll explain how it works.

I’ll show you why it is the PERFECT way to protect your retirement now.

But first, let me explain exactly what’s going on in America.

And why I’m convinced this is an incredibly dangerous time to be fully invested in stocks.

America Is in the Middle of a
Fundamental Transformation

To start with, let’s look at the response to the coronavirus outbreak.

In the entire history of the United States, we’ve never seen anything like this.

Nationwide, schools closed… businesses shut… restaurants, bars, gyms, ski resorts…

Virtually everything empty.

It’s unheard of.

I understand the health implications, but at the same time, a complete global economic shutdown is devastating.

I’ve been a PhD economist for 43 years.

This is an experiment that has never been tried.

And I can tell you, it will create a cascading effect that will affect our economy for a decade or more.

Here’s what I mean.

First, let’s look at the jobs.

Business after business dealt with mass layoffs to try to do anything to not go bankrupt in the face of a complete collapse in sales.

They’ve borrowed billions and billions of dollars to keep the doors open.

But unfortunately, that can last only so long.

As businesses go under, we will see defaults on loans.

And the banks that fund these businesses will find themselves in a new credit crisis.

Will the Fed be able to step in?

Not likely.

It’s kept interest rates low for so long that it has virtually no ammunition left.

And state and federal governments have built up so much debt that stimulus packages now are likely to completely explode their budgets.

In short, we’re looking at the most severe economic downturn since the Great Depression.

Now here’s where it gets ugly.

The Democrats absolutely loved this.

The economy was humming — until the coronavirus came along.

Now look who’s in charge. President Biden will take even more steps to attack the stock market and our capitalist system in ways never before seen in America.

Major taxes on capital gains… wealth confiscation of investors… socialization of industry… and disastrous regulations.

We’re going to see him start to deliver on promises of free health care, tuition, housing, and more for everyone… including non-U.S. citizens.

Yet, when the bill comes due for these promises, there will be no one to pay it.

And I think this will be ruinous for the U.S. economy.

Now, if you think I’m wrong… or I’m exaggerating to make a point…

Are you willing to bet your retirement on it?

Because that’s what you’re doing.

With Biden’s policies, we could see a bear market in stocks that lasts for years.

And it will happen lightning fast. As Warren Buffett warns, “The light on Wall Street can at any time go from green to red without pausing at yellow.”

I hate to tell people this.

And like I said, I hope I am wrong.

But all I ask is that you review the evidence I’m about to put forth and come to your own conclusion.

And then ask yourself…

Is there a chance I’m right, that your retirement is truly at risk?

Because if there’s even a chance, then you should consider the investment I’m about to show you.

Remember, it has zero downsideIt cannot drop in value.

Yet it also has outperformed stocks over nearly two decades.

It’s the perfect investment to ensure you are safe, regardless of the outcome.

In the face of the prolonged downturn for the economy and a new democrat president – hell-bent on giving away the store, you MUST move the money you cannot afford to lose into this investment now.

I’m recommending it to all my readers specifically because it will do well no matter what happens to stocks going forward.

At the very least, even if you still want to own some stocks…

You should move the portion of your retirement money you absolutely cannot afford to lose into this investment.

If the market recovers and stocks rise, the investment will still make you money.

But if we face a total economic disaster, your money is 100% protected.

And isn’t that the certainty we all need right now?

A little protection in case things go sideways?

I would say yes.

Because as you’re about to see…

The Democratic party is on a mission.

They want to radically alter America and turn it from the beacon of capitalism it once was into a fully socialist state.

To do so, they have one major goal:

To fundamentally change Americans from rugged individualists into a new breed of state-dependent socialists.

And I hate to say it.

But so far, they are absolutely succeeding in their goal of transitioning the United States of America into a socialist regime.

It starts with our education system…

From preschool to college, our educational system has been hijacked by socialist professors and corrupt teacher unions that are indoctrinating our children with their ideology.

Step 1 to Socialism:
Take Over the Education System

They are starting very young.

In North Carolina, fourth grade students are given handouts, shaming them for their “white privilege.”

In Minneapolis, in 2016, teachers openly compared the Trump presidential victory to 9/11 and the Columbine massacre.

They organized rallies among the students and even forced students who supported Trump to stand up and declare whether they were racist.

And parents felt totally helpless to stop this sort of thing.

Listen to what National Education Association specialist Paul Haubner has stated about how he feels when parents fight back…

“The schools cannot allow parents to influence the kind of values/education their children receive in school.”

In other words, they know better than we do.

That’s why we have new curriculum like “common core,” or “social justice math,” that takes what should be basic arithmetic and rams in ideas about victimhood and the benefits of socialism.

It’s everywhere you look in our education system… from top to bottom.

Worse yet, they are actually teaching these children as they grow up that even listening to other ideas is wrong.

I should know.

I’ve been a university professor for over three decades. I’ve taught economics and business classes at universities all over the country, including Columbia in New York, Rollins College in Florida and now at a private university in California.

And the hostility toward capitalism and any ideas that don’t match the party line is frankly out of control.

At Rollins, a popular teacher in the Economics Department was one of several self-proclaimed Marxists.

Marxism is responsible for millions of deaths everywhere it’s been tried… in the Soviet Union, Mao’s China, Cuba, Venezuela…

You can’t point to one single success story with Marxism.

Yet that’s what this professor in the Economics Department is pushing on students. I once told him, “Marx is dead!” He responded, “Yes, he’s dead, but I’m alive and I’m teaching YOUR students.” 

Seriously, that’s what he said to me!

And the thing is…

Marxists are running university departments all over the country.

At Columbia, I was driven out precisely because of my free-market viewpoints.

The chairman of the department was not happy that I was actually educating the students on the fact that capitalism has done more to eradicate poverty than any other economic system in history.

They hated the idea of having to debate an alternative point of view.

So they got me out of there.

And my experience is the same all over the country.

There was a report recently from a Yale professor in The Wall Street Journal.

He said the faculty political diversity at Yale is now at 0%.


No conservative views at all are accepted on campus.

A study of Yale students who identify themselves as conservative recently showed that 95% “said the Yale community does not welcome their opinions.”

It’s no wonder that universities have become the epicenters of violent attacks on anyone who dares to have a different viewpoint.

My close personal friend Charles Murray was attacked at Middlebury College for daring to speak about the breakdown of family and the root causes of poverty in America.

Students shouted him down and then jumped on the hood of his car as he fled.

His debate partner ended up in the hospital needing a neck brace.

I’m telling you, it’s happening all over the country.

At Berkeley, the mere thought of free-market conservative speakers setting foot on campus has resulted in the student body setting fires, smashing windows, and beating up those who don’t accept their views.

They attack anyone who doesn’t think exactly like they do.

So let me ask you a question…

When schools all over the country are indoctrinating our children with their views and shouting down anyone who believes otherwise…

What happens when those kids – 73 million strong and larger than the Baby Boomer generation – start voting?

Clearly they are radically different than children of previous generations.

They believe that business is evil.

They think that housing, health care, tuition, food… virtually everything should be free… provided by the state.

And there are more and more of them reaching voting age every day.

As Investor’s Business Daily writes, we are now seeing “generations of Americans who know little about their own country, other than that they hate it.”

And this trend will only continue.

Our corrupt educational system will continue pumping out more socialists, while unfortunately, the baby boomer generation will continue to decline.

Worse yet, the millennials are more radical in their views than any other generation before them.

A 2018 Gallup poll found that over half of Americans 18 to 29 now view socialism favorably.

Of course, this is all part of the Democrats’ plan.

First, they educate our kids to believe in socialism.

They get them to believe they cannot succeed on their own… and that capitalism is oppressing them.

Perfectly setting them up to be hoodwinked when politicians go on TV and promise them all kinds of free stuff to buy their votes…

Step 2 to Socialism:
Promise Free Stuff & Change the Demographics

In one of the early democratic debates… something happened that made my jaw drop.

The moderator asked a simple question:

Who would offer health insurance to immigrants who entered the U.S. illegally?

Here was the response:

All 10 of them raised their hands.

It was a wakeup call for just how radical the candidates have gotten.

Their goal of making government a free provider of all goods and services now extends to even people who are in the country illegally.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg for all the free stuff candidates offer in order to secure votes.

Candidates were offering to immediately cancel all student loan debt.

They were promising free college tuition for all.

Free health care.

We witnessed candidates promise free day care, housing, and no-strings-attached universal income.

And now President Biden, who used to be viewed as a moderate, seems to be adopting these crazy campaign promises as he settles into office.

Americans are now so enamored with the idea of “free stuff” that they aren’t stopping to think of the consequences.

Who’s going to line up for hard work and paying taxes… when you can skip work and just get the government to pay for everything?

And that’s exactly what’s happening too. Restaurants, bars, almost every blue collar job is finding it difficult to find workers.

Who wants to work when you can sit home and collect more money with unemployment than you made working?

I mean it’s easy to see how these guys won.

I’d like to think Americans were smart enough to see through these empty promises, but the election proved otherwise.

Sadly the result comes from years of education – that capitalism is bad and socialism is good.

They’ve learned it in schools, heard it from politicians, but they’ve also been force-fed it by the media… in the TV shows and movies they watch.

It’s everywhere.

Step 3 to Socialism:
Control the Media and Entertainment

Just think about the narrative pushed by the media and the entertainment industry.

In The New York Times, they put out articles asking how socialism would improve their lives.

Notice how they say “how it has worked in other countries.”

As if that’s the norm.

I guess they won’t be bringing up Venezuela… where, due to food shortages, citizens lost an average of 20 pounds each in the latest economic collapse.

They are literally starving to death.

Venezuela is one of the most natural resource-rich countries in the world… yet can’t even feed its citizens.

That’s socialism for you.

But it hasn’t stopped the media from pumping their narrative.

How about this headline from The Washington Post:

It was written by a columnist who looks like he’s about 30 and probably came out of some Ivy League reeducation camp.

The piece says things like “capitalism seems to be at odds with the harmonious, peaceful, stable liberalism.”

There is of course nothing harmonious or peaceful about socialism.

But our youth simply don’t know that.

And again, that’s why I am so worried.

Our education system has totally misled them, and then the media is there to pat them on the back and tell them they all are right.

Capitalism was the true evil after all.

Television and movies of course continue the narrative.

We live in a world where our TV shows indoctrinate everyone to believe that capitalism is to blame for all of the world’s ills.

It’s the reason I am so worried about the stock market.

Under President Biden, we could see the coronavirus recession turn into a full-blown depression.

Again, maybe Americans will rise up and say enough of this.

I certainly hope so.

But our world has gone so crazy that I certainly wouldn’t count on it.

That’s why I’m advocating that you turn to the investment I’ve talked about today.

It’s the only way to ensure that when President Biden comes for YOUR money in order to pay for their socialist utopia… it is 100% protected.

Plus, the investment I’m about to tell you about can actually deliver more upside than stocks.

It’s the perfect way to protect yourself.

Now again, as I’ve said from the start, I’ve always been an optimist and it’s difficult for me to deliver such a pessimistic view on the country’s future.

I hope to be wrong.

But when you combine a Biden administration that has given away trillions of dollars, with the surge in the millennial generation and the panic caused by the coronavirus…

And you can see why I believe we’re going to see a radical agenda pushed through the Democrat led Congress, and soon.

It will not be good for the economy or the stock market.

In a moment, I’m going to share with you the zero-risk investment that I am urging you to get into now.

I believe in this investment so much as a safe haven that I first urged my wife to use it for her own retirement funds in 2008.

It kept her completely safe from the financial crisis.

And she actually ended up doubling her retirement instead!

Then when the coronavirus crash hit, this investment allowed her to once again come through without losing one penny.

But before I get into those details… I just want to show you why president Biden’s agenda will be so devastating to our economy and, particularly, the stock market.

So What Will Happen With President Biden in Charge?

The president and the rest of the Democratic political leaders open hostility toward stock market investors.

Take a look at the recent capital gains tax at death proposal as one example.

They view investors as big piggy banks that just need to be smashed open and taken for every penny they have.

Top Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, Ron Wyden, has already proposed that capital gains be taxed annually instead of when stocks are sold.

This would hit investors at a max rate of 37% every year.

So imagine if, at the end of every year, you had to pay taxes on the growth of your investments.

In order to pay the tax bill, you’d have to sell off a whole bunch of shares.

And everyone in America would need to do the same.

You can imagine the impact on stock prices.

It would be brutal.

But that’s just one bad idea they are pushing.

Democrats have promised to…

There’s even talk of a 42% national sales tax to pay for Medicare for All.

Imagine that surprise when you go to the register and the price of everything you buy goes up by almost half!

A $30,000 car would now cost more than $42,600!

Obviously, it would be devastating to the economy just like everything else they have planned.

Add these burdens on top of the coronavirus collapse and you can see why I fear a long-term depression.

That’s why you absolutely must move now to make sure you are safe.

Now, I’m not telling people to go to cash.

Cash will protect you, yes.

But will it grow your money? No.

You want an investment that will protect you and grow your money no matter what.

And my zero-downside investment does that.

It works both ways.

Which makes it perfect for this moment.

But let me make one thing clear.

You can’t wait any longer.

The market already lost significant value once.

But it could lose even more the next time.

MUCH more.

Every crash goes down further than you think it can.

So let me tell you about the zero-risk investment I’ve been referencing today.

Move Your “Safe Money” Into a
Secure Retirement Account

Now, to start with, let me say one thing.

I’m not saying you can’t own any stocks at all.

There are going to continue to be some great buying opportunities due to the coronavirus.

I am recommending a number of stocks to my readers that are in such strong positions I believe they will do well in any environment, including the one we are experiencing right now.

It’s okay to pick a few stocks that you really like and continue holding those.

And I also strongly believe that precious metals — gold and silver — will continue to do well during this market downturn.

I’ve been recommending gold since December 2018 and we’ve done very well, and will continue to do well.

I’ll explain my favorite way to play gold, as well, in just a moment.

But first I want to talk about what you should do with the money you “can’t afford to lose.”

I am suggesting you move that money out of the stock market and into a different type of retirement account.

I call it a Secure Retirement Account or an SRA.

An SRA is essentially a 100% principle-protected stock market investment.

And they have two rules.

  1. Your principal is 100% protected. It cannot drop no matter what happens with stocks.

So, for example, in 2008 stocks were down 35.6%.


It would have enjoyed no loss!

Now, to be clear, it’s true you would not have made money in 2008 with a Secure Retirement Account.

But you wouldn’t have lost a penny, either.

Similarly, during the coronavirus crash, a Secure Retirement Account would have made sure you didn’t lose a cent.

That’s why I put my wife’s retirement funds in one over a decade ago.

To keep her 100% protected.

Which it did perfectly during both the financial crisis and the coronavirus crash.

However… it also helped her make a ton of money, too.

When stocks rebounded from 2008 lows in the next few years, the account doubled in value.

And this gets me to the second rule of how SRAs work.

  1. If stocks go up, unlike cash, you still get to access the upside.

And in fact, sometimes the upside you get can actually be MORE than stocks.

For example, from January 1, 2000, to January 1, 2019, this investment actually performed better than the S&P 500.

A $100,000 account would have seen $20,000 in profit ABOVE what the S&P 500 would have produced.

And remember, that’s without any of the heartache of having to suffer through the financial crisis or the dot-com collapse.

Wouldn’t that be nice?

To know your account couldn’t go down yet still have that kind of upside?

And between 2000 and 2008, the outperformance was even more dramatic.

$100,000 in an SRA would have produced almost $60,000 in extra profit over the S&P.

As Charles Schwab says, an SRA “can be used to protect a portion of your savings from market risk, and also provide potential for some market appreciation.”

And when you compare an SRA with other 100%-protected investments… like CDs or a savings account… the results aren’t even close.

Since January 1, 2008… a Secure Retirement Account produced 489% bigger returns than a savings account and 176% more profit than U.S. Treasuries.

Any way you look at it, it is the ultimate safe investment.

SRAs Are a Favorite Investment of
the Super Rich

Better yet, unlike normal IRAs, there is no limit to how much you can invest in an SRA.

Yet, few regular Americans use it.

Secure Retirement Accounts generally are more common among the ultra-rich.

MarketWatch actually did an exposé on why “the 1%” loves SRAs.

One-percenters look at them “as a way to take risk off the table” according to MarketWatch.

Forbes has called these accounts “the unsung heroes of retirement.” 

The best benefit?

An SRA will “reduce your likelihood of running out of money in retirement,”Forbes reports.

In fact, this has been studied.

If you had $1 million in the S&P 500 and took out $60,000 every year starting in 2000, you’d be out of money in just 13 years.

By comparison, that same million dollars in an SRA would still be worth over $150,000 today.

Bottom line: If you have ANY concerns whatsoever about the next couple of years under President Biden, this is the move to make to ensure you are protected.

And even though Secure Retirement Accounts are mostly used by the world’s richest, more and more Americans are tapping into the peace of mind SRAs offer.

With today’s market swings, I think it’s more important than ever that you protect your money right now.

Which is why I’ve put together a report for you today called, Protect and Grow Your Retirement With a Secure Retirement Account.”

Now, if we were to sell it, the full price would be $259.

But I want to send you this report for FREE right now.

In it, I will explain how to set up a Secure Retirement Account, step by step.

It’s actually not that hard.

When my wife and I did this, we were surprised at just how easy it was.

In the report, I’ll also show you how to ensure your money is 100% protected and cannot go down.

That way, no matter what happens with the economy and the stock market, you’ll know you aren’t losing one penny.

I’ll even detail the ways to maximize your growth if I’m wrong and stocks do turn around quickly.

In short, this report will give you everything you need to make sure you have peace of mind going forward.

And again, I will send it to you today at no cost.

But before I show you how to get it…

There’s more I want to send you today.

Let me tell you about one more report I’d like to share with you.

BONUS #2: My New Gold Report

Gold could shock the markets this year.

With all the uncertainty we’re seeing today, gold could be entering a new bull market.

Higher taxes, a bear stock market, and inflation… all generally lead to higher gold prices.

And because of that, many smart investors are moving into the yellow metal right now.

Ray Dalio, for instance, the founder of the world’s largest hedge fund… is moving out of stocks and into gold.

Stocks “are unlikely to be good returning investments,” he says. But the investments that “will most likely do best will be those that do well when the value of money is being depreciated and domestic and international conflicts are significant, such as gold.”

Regular investors are piling into gold. Gold exchange-traded funds, for example, saw an inflow of $2.6 billion in a single month recently.

And even those who hate gold are suddenly loading up.

Take Warren Buffett.

MarketWatch has referred to him as the “de-facto leader of the anti-gold crowd.”

He’s never invested in it until just recently, when he suddenly plunked down $564 MILLION into a gold investment.

Something tells me he sees what’s coming, too.

And that’s why I’ve put together a second bonus for you today.

It’s a report called Golden Cash Flows.” ($159 Value)

And in this report, I detail what I believe is the most reliable and potentially profitable way to invest in gold.

Over the past 11 years, even during a bear market for gold, it’s paid out investors almost eight times their initial investment.

That’s nearly a double every year.

And with a new gold bull market starting, that’s only likely to grow even bigger.

So again, as part of everything you’ll get today, I want to include “Golden Cash Flows.”

It will show you how to get in on this golden investment, which is another great safe haven for your money when the democrats crash the market again.

And keep in mind, this investment even performed fantastically while Trump was president, too.

So it’s a perfect “works either way” investment as well.

But before I tell you how to get these reports, let me add just one more bonus for you.

BONUS #3: How to Keep Your Money Out of the Hands of the IRS

My third bonus report is titled Lucrative Loopholes: 4 Ways to Keep More of Your Money Out of the Taxman’s Reach.” ($159 value)

Under Joe Biden’s presidency, we can expect higher, stiffer taxes and hand-outs galore for the next few years at least.

That makes this report more important than ever.

In it, I detail four special ways to pay fewer taxes on your investment income.

With Biden at the helm, there is no telling what new taxes we will face.

So this report is key for you to receive now.

In total then, you’ll get…

I can send these to you in the next few minutes.

Plus, I want to add one thing… perhaps the most valuable part of this whole package.

It’s a risk-free trial of my long-running publication Forecasts & Strategies.

40 Plus Years of Making People Rich

Forecasts & Strategies is a letter I formed 40 years ago, the year Ronald Reagan was elected. I started it with one specific purpose.

To help people ensure that they achieve financial security during their retirement years.

As you’ve seen in today’s message… I believe there is a real problem in America.

The fact is… our government, the media, our schools… almost all our major institutions are openly hostile to the idea of wealth creation.

If you are successful and make money, they think you are a problem.

It’s the reason they shut down the entire economy without thinking twice about the consequences.

They don’t want you to be rich.

They want everyone to be equally poor in America.

They want to tax you as much as possible.

They want you to be dependent on the state.

And they don’t like individuals who are smart enough to take care of themselves financially.

In my opinion, that flies in the face of the principles America was founded on.

I believe it should be every American’s RIGHT to become wealthy… to create their own financial independence.

And I’ve been helping people do exactly that for 40 years with a lot of success.

To this day, I continue working every hour the market is open to ensure every investment I recommend is one of the very best. 

That way when I send you the latest issue of Forecasts & Strategies, I know it’s very likely to help you meet your financial goals.

Keep in mind, even though I believe you should protect yourself going forward, especially your “safe” money… that doesn’t mean I will be completely out of stocks forever or even right now.

One lesson I’ve learned over the years is that great stocks will continue to rise no matter what is happening in the economy.

And some of them are now available at fantastic prices.

So I will continue searching for those standout stocks for you.

As I said earlier, my recommendation is to put a portion of your money in an SRA so that it’s safe.

But continue to also invest in a handful of strong stocks where sales are still growing, new products are being introduced, and share prices are rising.

You can expect to find opportunities like that and much more in my issues of Forecasts & Strategies.

I’ve Helped Subscribers Navigate the
Biggest Market Moves of the Past Four Decades

For the last 40 years, I’ve guided investors successfully through just about every major market move, just as I will with you before the upcoming election.

For instance, in 1987, six weeks before the October crash, I warned my subscribers to “get out of stocks now.” I was one of the only investment advisers to anticipate the crash.

And because of that, my subscribers were safe.

As we approached the ’90s, many pundits predicted another major depression and bear market, but not me. I consistently argued that the ’90s could be a whole decade of prosperity. 

Throughout the 1990s, I predicted that the decade would turn out to be the best ever for the U.S. stock market. In January 1995, I wrote that “The Nasdaq will double and then double again.”

The Nasdaq was at 750 at the time and went up over 4,000.

In my April 2003 issue, I issued another bull market signal.

I gave a strong “buy signal” on the stock market, very close to the bottom.

And at the bottom of the market in 2009, I predicted that the Dow would hit 10,000 by the end of the year, a very unpopular opinion at the time.

I told subscribers that stocks were a “screaming buy.” And once again, it proved to be right.

The stock market continued to climb straight through to 2019.

Then in January 2020, I first published my headline that I was more worried about stocks than at any time in my 40-year career.

People didn’t listen.

In fact, when I first published it, I got only three responses!

People just didn’t want to hear the truth.

But now they’re listening.

And I’m glad to know you’ve woken up to what’s going on, too.

The investments I try to find are specifically geared toward helping you profit no matter what happens.

I think this approach is one of the reasons I’m celebrating my 40-year anniversary this year, and why I constantly get letters and emails like these from subscribers…

“Mark Skousen has been the only one to consistently make me money in the 7 years I subscribed to Forecasts & Strategies. He’s the best!” says Jared.

Joshua J. has had a similar experience. Here’s what he told us:

“No other financial guru seems to have your ability to separate the chaff from the grain. Your newsletter is the greatest!”

Raymond M. reported some great financial numbers:

“Your high-income suggestions have netted me over $90,000 in capital gains plus about $25,000 in dividends this year.” he says.

Perhaps the most gratifying for me has been the compliments of people I know and respect deeply in this business.

Steve Mariotti, founder of the Network for Teaching and Entrepreneurship, called me “one of the greatest minds of the modern money era.” 

Well, I don’t know about that, but it was certainly nice of him to say.

One of my heroes as an economist is Nobel Prize winner Milton Friedman.

My close friend Steve Forbes even said I should win the Nobel Prize in economics!

The point I’m trying to make with all this is not to boost my own ego…

I just want you to see that I’ve proven myself to a lot of people out there.

It’s the reason I’ve been around for so long.

And I have no doubt Forecasts & Strategies, and my analysis as an economist, can help you increase your success as an investor going forward.

Now in a moment I’m going to give you the chance to join my service with a special offer to celebrate my 40-year anniversary.

But first, let me add one more quick bonus for you.

Bonus #4: A Copy of My Best Selling Book
The Maxims of Wall Street
(Full Price: $24.95 Yours: Free)

I’d like to send you a free copy of one of my most popular books.

The Maxims of Wall Street is filled with all the best advice from hundreds of the top investors throughout history.

You’ll get tips from Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, John Templeton and others.

It’s great to flip through, and makes for an excellent book for the office.

Warren Buffett considers it his favorite quote book. And commodity guru Dennis Gartman says, “It’s amazing the depth of wisdom one can find in just one or two lines from your book.”

I think you’ll really enjoy it. And when you’re done, feel free to pass it on to your children or grandchildren.

OK, that’s my final bonus.

So let me get to that offer I mentioned a few minutes ago.

Join One of the Longest-Running Newsletters In the Business

People sometimes ask me how I’ve lasted so long in this business.

I believe there are a few reasons I’ve thrived in all markets.

First, I always focus on solutions.

Even if something terrible is happening, like this coronavirus crash…

My focus isn’t on the problem, but how we can still succeed regardless.

That’s why I put together this message: To help YOU use a Secure Retirement Account to ensure you don’t lose one penny going forward, but also give yourself the chance to make money if the markets turn around.

Focusing on solutions over problems is always important.

Second, I’ve never missed a deadline in 40 years.

I put a ton of work into everything I publish and I never mail anything in.

Third, because my investing principles work.

I’m happy to report that I have beaten the market pretty consistently over the years. According to the Hulbert Financial Digest, I beat the market over a recent 15-year stretch.

If you don’t offer good advice, people won’t stick with you for long.

And it’s the success of my recommendations that keep people coming back.

That’s why I want to give you the chance to join me at Forecasts & Strategies right now.

As a new member, you’ll receive…

And don’t forget, you’ll also get every one of the reports, books, videos, and bonuses I’ve lined up for you today, including…

That’s a package with a total value of $850.95!

And of course, I’ll keep you up to date on everything that’s happening with the new President and his effect on the markets in the months ahead.

As you know, I’m very worried about the direction of the country.

For years now, our children have been educated by corrupt bureaucrats following union guidelines. They’ve been taught by a never-ending string of socialist professors who want to change America.

Now, the millennials are the biggest voting bloc in the country… and they’ve made themselves heard.

Clearly, now is the time to start protecting yourself.

I believe your future finances depend on it.

Which is why I’m doing something special to make sure nothing holds you back.

In honor of my 40-year anniversary, I’m making Forecasts & Strategies available to you at one of the best prices I’ve ever offered.

It’s normally just $249 for a complete year… less than $1 per day.

However, as I said, I don’t want anyone to hesitate to protect themselves.

So I’m going to make this as easy as possible.

Today, I’ll reduce the price from $249 to just $49.95 as an initial one-year offer.

That’s the lowest price I’ve ever offered.

But I’m doing it because I think every American needs to at least take steps to protect themselves immediately.

And speaking of protection and no-risk investments…

Let me take ALL THE RISK out of this offer as well.

When you join me at Forecasts & Strategies today, I’ll back up everything I’m promising you with a complete 30-day money-back guarantee.

This gives you 30 full days to try out my research.

You’ll get everything I’ve offered today.

The reports, the books, the portfolios, the tax guide…

If anything doesn’t live up to the billing… you can call my team within the first 30 days for a complete 100% refund of your membership fee.

Plus, you’ll still get to keep every single thing I sent you – at no charge. It’s yours to keep, FREE.

That’s how confident I am in myself and this investment.

All you have to do to take me up on this offer is click the “Yes, I Want to Make Sure I’m 100% Protected with an SRA” button below.

It will take you to a secure order form where you can see all the benefits you’re entitled to when you start your trial.

At the very least, you might as well sign up and get the reports for FREE, even if you don’t stick with me for the long run.

I won’t be offended.

I just want to make sure you are fully protected.

That’s my primary goal.

Thanks for your time and welcome to the safety of the Secure Retirement Account.
