Opportunity

Despite our current economy and gloomy predictions, there are still likely to be periods of tremendous opportunity in the market. What if it were possible to preserve your assets from market downturns without having to make an emotional decision to buy, sell, or hold any one stock? What if you could take advantage of a strategy that automatically takes you out of harm’s way during bad years, and positions you for opportunity during good ones? The secret is in linking safely to the market without putting your principal there. By “indexing” to the market instead of “owning” the market you can link to indices safely on autopilot and lock in your gains without creating a taxable event.
