Kris’ note: Before we get to today’s essay, I wanted to remind you of tonight’s free training session with master trader Jeff Clark at 8 p.m. ET. Jeff thinks we’re about to hit a time in the markets that’ll be “very difficult for the typical ‘buy and hold’ investor.” But he’s got a plan for it… and tonight, he’ll even give a free trading recommendation just for attending.
We suggest you reserve your spot right here.
And then read on for our very own Dave Forest’s plan to profit through the coming market action… he’ll show you how to turn $850 – roughly the yearly interest on an average retiree’s savings – into over $42,000.

This is disturbing. In fact, it’s downright criminal – a sign of moral bankruptcy in our society.
It’s something everyone should be aware of… Something we all should be outraged by.
And that is the yield on the 10-year government Treasury bond.
It doesn’t sound like anything sinister. But it has a huge effect on the hard-earned savings of millions of Americans.
Because the yield on the 10-year Treasury has been relentlessly moving one direction for the last 40 years.
A Frightening Trend
In simple terms, the Treasury yield shows how much we get paid to save money. Very few charts in finance show a trend this distinct and sustained.
Take a look…
Back in the 1980s, we got paid about 15% on our savings. That’s pretty good. For the average retiree over 60, who holds about $172,000 in savings, that would have paid nearly $26,000 interest yearly.
But you can see how things have changed.
After 2008, yields plummeted to 2%. Today, they sit as low as 0.5%. That same $172,000 in savings now pays about $850 in interest yearly.
That’s absolutely unbelievable.
If this frightens you… it should.
But that’s good. Because it means you’re ahead of the game. And you’re in a position to change it.
Fortunately, I’ve found a way to take back control of your savings.
And we won’t settle for a “pretty good” 15%…
Because I’ve found another way to work this retirement equation.
Instead of investing large amounts of money for paltry returns over time… we can invest a small amount of money at potentially very high rates of return – within months in some cases, not years.
Move the Needle With Less Than $1,000
What do I mean by a small amount of money?
Let’s take a page from the government and say 0.5% of your savings – the same rate it thinks is appropriate to pay you on a 10-year Treasury.
For the average retiree, 0.5% of savings would mean investing about $850. That’s about half the amount many people spend yearly on take-out coffee.
Can you really move the needle investing $850?
Well, we’ve been moving the needle on people’s wealth with less than $1,000 for more than two years.
And I do it with something called warrants.
Take a look at my results.
One warrant I recommended to readers of my Strategic Trader advisory – using the strategy I’m talking about – returned 4,942%.
Here’s the critical point: with that 4,942% return, if you’d invested just $850, you would have walked away with over $42,000. That’s enough to pay most of the yearly living expenses for an average retiree.
Another warrant returned 2,805% for my subscribers. On an $850 investment, that would have yielded a very significant return of over $23,800.
Yet another position I recently closed out yielded a 393% return – turning an $850 initial investment into $3,340. That’s enough to make rent, pay utilities for several months, or take a nice vacation.
You don’t have to wait years for these warrants to take off, either.
As I write, I have 23 open positions using our proprietary warrants strategy. Fourteen of them are up. In fact, one of my plays is currently up as high as 1,341%.
And I think they’ll go even higher from here.
Flip the Game on the Government
Now remember, I’m not suggesting you should plow your life savings into my strategy. In fact, just the opposite. The key is to invest a very small amount of money – and create a meaningful benefit to your wealth and standard of living.
Another thing I want to stress: these investments aren’t complicated instruments like cryptocurrencies or stock options. You can buy and sell them as easily as regular stocks from just about any online brokerage account.
And the best part is, even if the wheels come off – even if you lost your entire $850 investment – you wouldn’t come close to jeopardizing your financial future. Not even a year’s worth of take-out coffee.
And as I showed above, there’s plenty to gain using this unique strategy.
I believe this is the right way – maybe the only way – to protect our financial future during these unprecedented and dangerous financial times.
If the government wants to keep running experiments with our wealth, we’ll flip the game on them.
If you want to learn more about how you can use this explosive strategy in your portfolio… along with my top pick to get you started… I urge you to watch my briefing right here.
Keep walking the path,
