The Melt Down will arrive but before that you can lock in big gains from the Melt Up. To help you put yourself on the right side of history Dr. Steve Sjuggerud is hosting a free webinar – Final Melt Up Event.
The ‘Melt Down’ Will Arrive – Here, in 2021
- The “Melt Down” is coming, my friend… Unfortunately, it will arrive this year.
- Until it arrives, let’s enjoy the “Melt Up” while we can.
Before you get bent out of shape with me for urging caution at the precise moment when things seem like they’re getting really good, please keep this in mind…
I have been bullish – and right – on the stock market for nearly all of the past 12 years. As investing guru Meb Faber has said, “Nobody has been more bullish and more right about the U.S. stock market since March 2009 than Steve Sjuggerud.”
I am proud of that. That’s why it pains me to tell you that the last 12 years of (mostly) good times for investors will likely end this year. (Nobody can know the future of course, but that is my prediction.)
I don’t want to see that happen. But my years of experience tell me it’s coming – and I want you to be ready.
For the majority of investors today, how you handle the Melt Down could be the most important event of your financial life…
For example, if you are 55 years old and you handle the Melt Down the wrong way, you might lose half of the money you have invested. That might cause you to work an additional 10 years before retirement… All because of a few bad decisions made in 2021.
So… Don’t be that guy.
Look, here are the basics: An investment “bubble” has just kicked in recently. And it will certainly end. Unfortunately, most folks who just started “playing” in the markets this year will lose money. A good portion of them will lose a lot of money.
Here’s how it will go:
- New investors will make a good amount of money on the way up. They will gain confidence.
- With that confidence, they will add even more money to their accounts, as they will believe they know how to succeed.
- Then the market will turn against them… And they will start to lose money.
- At first, they will see it as a golden opportunity to invest even more money, as things are “on sale.”
- Ultimately, they will lose even more money on the way down than they made on the way up.
It will take tremendous personal and emotional strength to avoid that path… to not end up like everyone else.
Your instincts will tell you to buy more. But your instincts will be wrong. In fact, you will need to do the opposite – you will need to sell, just when you feel like you want to buy.
Importantly, you will need a plan – set in advance – for how you will get out with most of your gains still intact. If you don’t have that plan in advance, then you will sink with the ship. And even then, having the plan doesn’t guarantee that you will follow it.
If you are to keep most of your money, you will need to follow the plan…

“I’m not going to sugarcoat it,” the former hedge-fund manager recently said. “We are entering a period of great risk AND great reward… and where you end up financially a decade from now could depend entirely on the actions you take in the coming days.” Steve is going live on April 29 with his most important prediction in years.
That’s because – unlike the fall we saw last March – a true Melt Down doesn’t end quickly…
“As the market goes down, will people rotate out of speculative stocks into less speculative ones?” one of my colleagues asked in the office.
“No, they won’t,” I replied. These market newcomers will ultimately give up after big losses. They will throw in the towel. They will pull what little money they have left out of the markets – and vow to never return.
At least that’s the way it went in the 1999 to 2000 Nasdaq Melt Up… that ended in an 80% fall in the Nasdaq stock index between the March 2000 peak and the bottom in 2003.
The exodus you see during a Melt Down doesn’t happen overnight. People are stubborn. It takes a while. Therefore, the Melt Down could take a while. And it could be severe. This slow exodus gives us time to exit our positions before most everyone else.
My goal is to have my readers participate in all of the upside potential that is left in the Melt Up… and then get us out with most of our gains when the Melt Down arrives.
I also intend to share investments with my readers in the coming months that can still deliver extraordinary returns – completely outside of the Melt Up. These are ideas that can perform well, regardless of what happens to U.S. tech stocks or bitcoin.
Let me explain why the Melt Up will most likely end this year…
“Steve, why are you so sure the Melt Up will end in 2021?”
It’s a fair question. The markets have been going up for years (with the exception of the COVID-19 crash a year ago). So why now? What makes this year different?
Your arguments are good ones. Stocks have been expensive for years and it hasn’t mattered. The Fed has promised low interest rates for a while. The economy is recovering from COVID-19. The new Biden administration will most certainly spend a lot of money creating jobs and sending out stimulus checks.
You are right on those points, and more. Heck, they’re some of the reasons I’ve said the good times would continue – and for longer than anyone imagined.
My basic premise all along has been that the Fed will keep interest rates lower than people can imagine, for longer than people can imagine. And that will cause asset prices like stocks and real estate to soar higher than people can imagine.
Times are good right now, based on those points. In its latest Global Fund Manager Survey, Bank of America hit the nail on the head: “The only reason to be bearish is… there is no reason to be bearish.”
There is far more to that sentence than you might think. You see, that’s the exact situation you tend to encounter before markets peak.
All you need to know is that markets peak when there is nobody left to buy…
And when we hit the peak after the current Melt Up, it will make the market crash last March look like child’s play.
That means it’s now or never for you and your money. And it’s time to make a choice that could determine if you’re vulnerable to the economic devastation that lies ahead… or lock in big gains from the Melt Up.
During a free event I’m hosting on April 29 at 8 p.m. Eastern time, I’ll explain exactly what this choice is and how to put yourself on the right side of history. You can register to attend right here.
