Here’s the cold, hard truth about investing:

The more capital you have at your disposal, the more risk averse you can afford to be.

You need some big winners — trades that can climb several hundred percent over the course of weeks or a couple months. 

In an exclusive online training, financial expert and former broker Ross Givens is revealing a powerful “roadmap” that is leading everyday investors to quick, triple-digit wins like clockwork.

Wall Street muted as eyes turn to next week’s Fed meeting

Stocks were mixed at the close of a fairly boring week this week with few big catalysts and remaining worries about inflation. 

For the week, the S&P and the Nasdaq have set a course to post gains from last Friday’s close, while the Dow was on track for a weekly loss.

But the indexes have been range-bound, with few catalysts to move investor sentiment. Much of the focus centered on Thursday’s consumer price data, which eased jitters over the duration of the current inflation wave.

“It’s a quiet day going into the weekend, volume is low and that’s to be expected,” said Matthew Keator, managing partner in the Keator Group, a wealth management firm in Lenox, Massachusetts. “We had a big inflation number this week and the markets seem to be taking it in stride.”

What should you know going into next week?

On June 12, 2016, a tragic shooting took place at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida. 

A terrorist gunman forced his way inside the club and immediately opened fire into the crowded building. Nearly 300 people were packed inside the club at the time of the shooting. Armed with an AR-15-type assault rifle and a handgun, the gunman fired shots as a band played. 

Many thought the loud pops were part of the show, until reality set in. As club goers scrambled to get out of the club with their lives intact, Pulse nightclub officials posted a chilling Facebook message that said, “Everyone get out of Pulse and keep running.”

In total, 49 people tragically lost their lives in the shooting and dozens more were injured. Who was responsible for the horrific crime and which terrorist organization was he affiliated with?
