Chris’ note: Record-high inflation, supply shortages, and geopolitical turmoil have been wreaking havoc on markets across the board this year.
But master trader Jeff Clark has unearthed a way you can turn the current market chaos into explosive profits – ones that more than make up for any losses you’ve suffered.
If you like the sound of a 941% gain in 11 days, add Jeff’s Breaking Point Summit to your schedule for tomorrow. There, he’ll explain how it’s been possible… and what you need to do to have the chance at similar gains.
Once you’ve signed up, read on below as Jeff shares why no matter how rich you get, you need to know how to grow a tomato.
My grandfather was a poor Kansas farmer.
I was born in a hospital three miles down the dirt road from his house. And I spent the first two weeks of my life in a homemade bassinet in his kitchen. But I didn’t meet him until I was seven years old.
I have only one memory of him.
It was a hot August evening – just before sunset. We were sitting on Grandpa’s front porch. He was teaching me how to play gin rummy. I kept getting distracted by the lightning bugs flickering in the bushes in front of the house.
“What do you want to do when you grow up?” Grandpa asked me.
“I want to be rich,” I said. “I want to have a big car and a big house and a pool and a horse and…”
I forget the rest… It was a big list.
But I remember my grandfather sitting there patiently, listening as I rattled off all the things a seven-year-old could possibly want for the rest of his life.
Grandpa smiled. “Those are all good things,” he said. “And I’ll bet you’ll have everything. But…”
He went on to tell me stories about what it was like raising a family during the depths of the Great Depression (my father was the youngest of seven children).
I don’t remember the details of the stories very well. But I do remember the intensity on Grandpa’s face as he talked about the tough times he and Grandma went through.
“No matter how much money you have, you can’t feed your family if there’s no food to buy,” Grandpa said.
“Go ahead and get rich,” he continued. “But before you do that, learn how to grow a tomato.”
His advice hit home the other day as I noticed many empty shelves at the local grocery store. That’s not something my generation has experienced before to this degree.
We trade our stocks, flip our houses, and post content all over the internet. We do what we need to earn paychecks and increase the cash in our savings accounts.
We’ve always trusted that somehow, all the things we need to survive will be available when we need them. Then, we can exchange some of our cash to meet our needs.
But that may not be true anymore.
Many folks’ savings accounts have shrunk recently.
Prices are up on everything from gas to groceries.
Supply chains are still suffering from shortages.
The S&P 500, Dow, and Nasdaq are all in or hovering around bear market territory.
Inflation is making each of your dollars worth less.
Maybe everything will be back to normal in a few months.
But maybe that’s what folks thought in 1929, too. I don’t know. I wasn’t there.
I do know how my grandfather’s face looked as he told me his stories. I remember how he went from playful and lighthearted to intensely serious.
And his message is engraved in my brain.
My grandfather died penniless. But his family never went hungry.
My father kept a small garden in the backyard of the house I grew up in. Mom would complain that he spent so much time there when he could just buy all the vegetables he needed at the local store.
Dad would politely ignore her. He’d wink at me as I tilled the garden’s soil.
My dad had a good job. He worked hard. He could easily afford to buy whatever food we needed at the grocery store.
But he insisted on planting his garden every spring.
He could have spent his evenings and weekends relaxing inside the house. But he enjoyed hanging out in his garden much more.
He took a lot of pride in knowing he could grow a tomato if he had to.
I could show you how to grow a tomato. But I have something else valuable to teach you.
It’s a simple yet highly lucrative strategy that could help you make back your losses.
It has to do with a new strategy I call “penny options.” These are a fraction of the price of regular options. But the potential gains can be explosive.
Gains like 815% in 13 days… 900% in 31 days… even 941% in 11 days.
Want to learn how to trade these penny options? I’ll teach you in a special presentation tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET.
I want to share what I’ve learned during my 40-year career to help you take care of your family.
