Dear Fellow Investor,
My guess is that this true story will shock you as much as it did me:
A few weeks ago — on Tuesday, February 3rd, to be exact — a very interesting document landed in my inbox.
It was a spreadsheet — a very special spreadsheet that showed how much money you would have made if you could have followed Jon Markman’s “Technology Trend” strategy since the year 2000.
The word “shocked” can’t even begin to describe how I felt as I studied the numbers in that document:
It showed that if you had simply followed Jon’s “buy” and “sell” signals since 2000 ...
You could have turned every $10,000 you invested into $78,200.*
Jon’s Tech Trend strategy focuses exclusively on ETFs that cover the Nasdaq 100 — one hundred of the largest, non-financial companies listed on the tech-heavy Nasdaq exchange ...
And it showed a return of 682.5%.
That’s nearly 15 times better than the results achieved by the average S&P 500 stock in the same timeframe.
Moreover, it’s 34 times better than the results achieved by the NASDAQ 100. (See chart)
Frankly, I didn’t believe my eyes at first. You see, I knew that, during that same period, the Nasdaq had plunged from a peak of over 5,100 in 2000 to a bottom of nearly 1,100 in 2002.
And I knew that the recovery in the Nasdaq since then has been long and hard.
So how could an investment strategy based on that index possibly have been so profitable?
How could it have made you nearly eight times richer, turning $10,000 into more than $78,000?
I figured I must have misread something.
Or perhaps there was an error hidden in one of the formulas on Jon’s spreadsheet.
So I called for help.
I asked my research team to crunch the numbers for themselves. I told them to follow the strategy all the way back to the year 2000 ... to analyze and confirm the results of every trade ... and to double-check every gain and every loss down to the last penny.
In fact, my research team announced not just one finding, but two:
FIRST, they found that, had you followed every one of Jon’s “buy” and “sell” signals since 2000, you could indeed have earned a 682.5% return.
For every $10,000 you invested, you could have walked away with a $68,200 profit, less the small commissions and fees you would have paid to make the trades.
And SECOND, they found one caveat: The 682.5% return was ONLY true if you had taken all your profits off the table at the end of each calendar year!
In other words, Jon assumed you started each new year with just the original $10,000 investment.
He assumed you NEVER reinvested your gains.
But that’s an overly conservative assumption. Even with the drag of taxes, you could have easily reinvested a big chunk of those profits.
Moreover, Jon’s strategy qualifies for use in a retirement account that allows your money to compound tax-deferred, year after year.
In fact, our researchers found that, if you had followed Jon’s signals in a tax-deferred account and reinvested your gains just ONCE yearly — at the beginning of each new year ...
In addition, the astonishing accuracy of Jon’s model has done something I would never have thought possible:
It transforms technology stocks into “all-weather” money-makers: Not a single losing year since Jon began tracking results in the year 2000!
That’s an astounding fact about Jon’s approach that may take a minute to wrap your mind around.
Here’s an even more astonishing fact:
Even though he never shorts stocks or uses investments like put options, futures or inverse ETFs to short the market ...
Jon’s strategy could have made you money — quite a bit of money, in fact — in years when the Nasdaq 100 PLUNGED in value!
I know that seems impossible. After all, how could anyone have made money in technology stocks when they were sinking in the year 2000 — let alone in 2001 when the 9/11 terrorist attacks made a bad situation worse?
That’s the first question I asked when I saw Jon’s track record. But when we closely examined his performance, the answer became clear:
Jon’s system could have kept you out of the market during all of the big declines ...
Then moved you INTO the market to catch the powerful bounces that punctuate every bear market.
And so ...
> In 2000, the first year of the Tech Wreck, Nasdaq 100 plunged 25% — but following Jon’s signals, you could have earned a 58% total return.
> In 2001, the Nasdaq 100 was down 28% — but Jon’s signals could have earned you a 40% gain.
> And in 2002, while the Nasdaq 100 was still reeling — down another 45% — Jon’s system could have made you 20% richer.
Would you have some losing trades? Of course.
Are losing months — even losing years — possible in the future? Yes.
But the key is that ...
The plain truth is, Jon’s Tech Trend strategy could have anticipated every major move in the Nasdaq 100 since the year 2000. And it also could have predicted nearly every intermediate move as well.
The chart below tells the story in a nutshell ...
Let’s assume we could go back in time to the year 2000. And let’s assume you had Jon Markman’s signals at that time. Here’s the scenario that unfolds:
We start in early 2000. The Nasdaq 100 stocks have soared to unbelievable levels. Millions of investors all over the world — both pros and non-pros alike — are euphoric, pushing and shoving for a chance to buy even more.
But ironically, this is also when the Nasdaq suffers a two-and-a-half -year bear market.
But with Jon’s signals, you could have received a big sell signal — warning of the great decline to come. And you could have received it exactly 14 days in advance.
Fast forward to the late 2002. The Nasdaq 100 stocks touch rock bottom and begins a long recovery.
Nearly all investors — again, pros and non-pros alike — are afraid to buy stocks .
Without Jon’s signal that techs had hit bottom, investors miss one of the greatest buying opportunities in the modern history of technology investing.
But Jon’s signal catches the turn 24 days in advance. With it, you could have harnessed the enormous wealth-building power of the rally that followed — and continued doing so for five long years!
Then comes the beginning of the housing bust in 2007. Again, most investors have no inkling of the great crisis that lies directly ahead. Again they get trapped in the Nasdaq. Again, they lose their shirts.
But with Jon’s signals, you could have known about the next big downturn — and preserved your capital — a full 29 days in advance.
Move the clock to early 2009: Again, most investors are too frightened to buy stocks.
They don’t realize that it’s the big bottom. They have no inkling that it’s actually the biggest buying opportunity of all.
But if you’d had the benefit of Jon’s Tech Trend signals, you could have known. You could have received a buy signal 25 days in advance.
In sum, Jon’s Tech Trend model could have helped you catch every major move in the Nasdaq 100 since the year 2000. And it has also predicted nearly every intermediate move as well.
Plus here are some more critical facts:
I must admit: These findings, while completely verified, have put me in a rather uncomfortable position.
After all, my reputation means everything to me. I spent a lifetime earning it. I’m also proud to be known as one of the world’s most conservative investment analysts.
So as you can imagine, I hesitate to even mention these kinds of numbers. As my father used to say, “they strain credulity.”
But when I see an investment strategy with this much potential, with painstakingly fact-checked returns like these, how could I possibly justify keeping them to myself?
That would be unfair.
Besides; this is NOT one of those high-risk strategies that has you taking fliers on exotic, super-high-leverage investments.
And it sure isn’t one of those strategies that drives you crazy, trading in and out of the market every day or even every week.
It’s actually a prudent, risk-averse strategy that was originally designed to PROTECT YOU from stock market declines.
In fact — even beyond the profits you could make — there’s A LOT to like about Jon’s strategy ...
|Gilead Sciences Inc|
|Cisco Systems Inc|
|Biogen Idec Inc|
|Vodafone Group PLC|
|Twenty-First Century Fox Inc|
|Costco Wholesale Corp|
|Express Scripts Holding Co|
|Mondelez International Inc|
|Texas Instruments Inc|
|The Priceline Group Inc|
|Liberty Global PLC|
So to keep things simple — and as prudent as possible — Jon focuses exclusively on what many believe are the very best stocks in the tech sector — the Nasdaq 100 companies.
The “Nasdaq 100” contains most of world’s greatest technology firms.
I’m talking about Apple and Microsoft. Google and Yahoo. Adobe, Intuit and Symantec. Activision and Electronic Arts. Amazon, eBay and Priceline. Biogen and Celgene. Facebook — and scores of other tech stocks whose names you know.
And not only does focusing on this single index dramatically simplify your investment choices ...
Not only does it help protect you by keeping you invested in many of the highest quality tech companies on the planet ...
It also helps to diminish your risk by diversifying your investment across scores of blue-chip tech stocks!
The secret to Jon’s astonishing “$10,000 to $2.3 million” success is his proprietary Tech Trend strategy.
This is the ground-breaking model Jon and his team built from the ground up to drive his “buy” and “sell” signals.
I’ve asked Jon to explain how it works in detail — and he will, below. But here’s the key:
Jon’s tech strategy never shorts the market. You are either ...
It is, quite clearly, the ultimate in simplicity. Plus, it is also the ultimate in convenience:
On average, Jon’s Tech Trend strategy has signaled only 17 changes per year since 2000 — only one or two per month. (That includes both the big signals at MAJOR turns I just told you about AND lesser signals at intermediate market turns.)
So you have plenty of time to get on with your life in-between trades.
Work. Travel. Play golf. Go to the beach. Do whatever you like. You really don’t even need to give your investments a second thought.
Whenever you check your email, you’ll immediately know if there’s a “buy” or “sell” signal by the subject line on the trade alert Jon sends you. And that signal will always come at the same time of the day.
If so, once you decide the trade is right for you, make the trade on your computer, tablet or Smartphone. If not, simply go about your business.
No one can guarantee that the patterns of the past will be replicated in the future. But, in a way, we’re lucky that the past 15 years have given us experience with major extremes in the Nasdaq — both up and down. And the pay-off is that Jon’s model has learned a lot from the experience.
So my answer is “yes.” It could be easy.
And with that in mind, can probably guess what my reaction was as I digested all of this track record information ...
The minute my team confirmed the numbers in Jon’s spreadsheet — the second after they affirmed that you really could have turned $10,000 into more than $2.3 million by following Jon’s signals — I immediately got Jon on the phone.
I told him he HAD to let me use this to help our readers.
I showed him how many lives could change with his investing strategy ...
How many retirement plans he could help restore ...
How he could ease financial stress and bring greater financial freedom to thousands of investors.
At first, Jon hesitated.
“This is a proprietary system,” he said.
“I developed it over decades with my team of mathematicians and scientists. Before I share these signals with anybody, I have to make sure we are all 100% on board with the idea.”
The great news is, Jon’s partners have all agreed, and he is now every bit as excited as I am to share his signals with you!
Jon insisted that the “buy” and “sell” signals his Tech Trend model generates must ONLY be used in a service that is dedicated solely to this approach.
He explained his reasoning by saying:
“I’ve spent the better part of 30 years developing and perfecting this strategy. My Tech Trend model represents the crowning achievement of my career.
“For this strategy to work, it must remain pure. Combining it with another approach — even a great one like your Ultimate Portfolio, for instance — would compromise both strategies.”
I understood and agreed. Result:
I am privileged to announce that Jon Markman’s Tech Trend Trader — the only trading service in the world based exclusively on his proprietary strategy — is now open to new members!
So I have asked Jon to tell you more about it ...
My mission is to give you the same “problem” Dr. Weiss encountered when he first examined my track record:
I want your profits to be so impressive, you’re almost embarrassed to mention them ... almost.
In truth, we both know that if my strategy helps you turn $10,000 into more than $2.3 million, you’ll probably shout it from the rooftops.
Heck, even if you do half that well, you’d be telling everyone you know!
And who could blame you? These verified results are truly life-changing!
The question I get asked most often is “WHY?”
“Why does my Tech Trend strategy work so well?”
The first answer is simply that we’re investing for the future ... and technology IS the future.
We all know that technology has created every major advance in human history:
From the invention of the wheel to agriculture and the cotton gin ...
From the printing press, telephone, radio and television to the personal computer, the Internet and the Smartphone ...
From the steam engine, internal combustion engine and jet turbine to bullet trains, automobiles, supersonic jets and space travel.
The history of technology is the history of mankind and the story of our lives.
Technology will determine how all seven billion of us work, communicate, meet, fall in love, raise families, play and create the next generation of technological marvels.
So where will that next generation of technology miracles come from?
Megatrend #1 is mobile computing. Not just on your laptop, tablet and Smartphone, but everywhere. On your wrist. In your car. Even implanted into your body to instantly report health problems to your doctor, potentially saving your life.
Worldwide, more than three billion people access the web on mobile devices, and more are joining the party every day. Each of those devices needs chips, screens, batteries, software, wireless and Blue Tooth connectivity and more.
The companies that provide these things — and of course the firms that produce and sell the devices themselves — are already making trillions of dollars. And investors who own their stock are destined to build vast fortunes in the years ahead.
Megatrend #2 is “The Internet of things.” Computer chips are NOT just for computers anymore. They can be inserted into just about everything you can name — from manufacturing facilities, to homes, to credit and debit cards, right down to the can of soup at the grocery store and even the shelf it sits on.
They can run factories ... track the movement of products and inventories ... control environments ... faultlessly guide planes, trains and automobiles ... monitor our shopping habits ... and much more.
ABI Research estimates that more than 30 billion chips will be wirelessly connected to the Internet of Things by 2020. The companies that make these chips and imbed them — and the companies that use them to ramp up their profits — will all make investors trillions of dollars.
Megatrend #3 is solar energy. Not just because it’s better for the environment. But more importantly, because it will be so many times CHEAPER than fossil fuels. And the companies that do it best will create entire generations of new millionaires.
Megatrend #4 is drone technology: Not just drones that fly, mind you, but drones that get around equally well at sea and on land. In the years ahead, these driverless vehicles will bring us our pizza, deliver the mail, pick up our laundry and even bring massive cargoes to our shores from around the world.
And, again, the companies that make and use those drones will make untold fortunes for millions of investors.
Here’s how my Tech Trend Trader works ...
First, I focus on one — and only one — tech sector index: The Nasdaq 100. They represent one hundred of the largest, non-financial companies listed on the tech-heavy Nasdaq exchange.
Second, I trade that index with two ETFs.
Third, we have three modes:
Fourth, we don’t have to trade often: As we said earlier, since 2000, our model shows an average of only about 17 trades per year.
By following this strategy, you could have turned $10,000 into more than $2.3 million since the year 2000.
Fifth, my signals are so accurate, they could have even helped you make money — a LOT of money — during the depths of the great Tech Wreck and every year since.
So, at this point, you no doubt have questions:
“Why does this remarkably simple approach to technology investing work so unusually well?”
“How could a trading strategy this simple have the power to turn $10,000 into more than $2.3 million?”
“How could something this convenient pile up profits even in the Tech Wreck of 2000-2002 and the great bear market of 2008?
Now, I make no bones about the fact that the formulas I use to generate my “buy” and “sell” signals are proprietary.
I have spent a lifetime creating, testing and fine-tuning them. They are 100% exclusive to this strategy, and no amount of money could ever induce me to reveal them to anybody.
But I can explain the basic principles that guide it: My Tech Trend model generates its signals by answering three critical questions:
If investors would just ask this question more often — and demand straight answers — they would have likely avoided most of the major stock market declines we’ve seen.
The challenge is getting a correct answer from traditional economists and analysts. The problem: They are still using old and tired, fundamentally flawed, models based on false assumptions:
They effectively assume that the economy will always grow and that the stock market will always rise. And because that simply isn’t the case, everyone who follows their models gets stung for major losses in bear markets.
My model is very different. It acknowledges the reality that bad things happen from time to time and they objectively predict the most likely scenario — good or bad — without any preconceived notions or bias.
The end result is that we get a vividly clear and honest picture of how weak or strong the overall economy really is.
If the answer is that the economy is NOT strong enough to justify investment, we get out (or stay out) of the market.
Otherwise, we move on to the next question ...
Before we invest, we also need to make sure that technology stocks are priced fairly and still have plenty of room to move higher.
To do this, my model first examines the valuations of the overall stock market as well as each individual sector.
Then, it compares the valuations of the Nasdaq 100 to other sectors and to the market as a whole.
And it does all this in an what I believe is a revolutionary way: Instead of just relying on the traditional price-earnings ratios that Wall Street uses, my model answers a much bigger question:
“How much would a sophisticated equity investor or institution pay to buy out each company in the Nasdaq 100? Based on that measure, what is the total value of the Nasdaq 100 today?”
We will move into the market ONLY if we find that today’s actual price levels are substantially lower than total value of the Nasdaq 100. If that’s the case, the market is underpriced and has plenty of room to move higher.
But if we find that tech stock prices are already sky-high and have little room to rise, we’ll be on the sidelines for a while.
In simple terms, if prices are rising — if tech stocks have upward momentum — it’s generally a good bet that there’s money to be made. But actually, it’s never quite that simple ...
You see, most investors focus almost exclusively on the potential rewards that come with investing — and forget about the price of those rewards: RISK. My model objectively weighs both risk and reward — and it does so in a very novel, very accurate way.
The math behind my formulas is based to a large extent on the work of Harold Edwin Hurst — and the beauty of the Hurst approach is that you don’t have to rely on past data to predict future trends.
When you rely too much on past data, you make the false assumption that that market will continue to behave like it did yesterday. That’s every bit as dangerous as trying to drive down a freeway at 90 miles an hour with your windshield blacked out, using only your rear view mirror for guidance!
Our approach is entirely different and quite revolutionary — and that’s precisely why it has the ability to predict the Nasdaq’s ups and downs with such remarkable accuracy.
I sincerely believe it is ...
My model carefully weighs the answers to all three of these critical questions to determine the amount of risk in the market — as well as how large the potential rewards may be.
The result is a measured, balanced signal that gets you into the market when it is rising ... and moves you to the sidelines when it is not.
So in summary, my Tech Trend Trader is unique in three important ways:
And what’s most unique of all is the way I COMBINE all of these into one single, integrated model for predicting the ups and downs in the Nasdaq 100 ...
A model that has not had a losing year since I began tracking it in the year 2000 ... and that should have even made you money even in the worst nightmare scenario imaginable: The historic Tech Wreck of 2000-2002.
And now, thanks to Dr. Weiss’ insistence, I am making these easy-to-follow “buy” and “sell” signals available in my new service, Tech Trend Trader.

Editor, Tech Trend Trader
* Model portfolio growth from $10,000 to $2,316,345 is based on the following return numbers for each year: +58.2% in 2000, +39.89% in 2001, +19.93% in 2002, +77.27% in 2003, +49.68% in 2004, +29.49% in 2005, +22.27% in 2006, +46.90% in 2007, +19.22% in 2008, +91.83% in 2009, +81.48% in 2010, +55.06% in 2011, +27.85% in 2012, +44.58% in 2013, and +18.87% in 2014. These assume a hypothetical investor follows all signals of Jon Markman’s tech-sector model, reinvesting gains once yearly at the beginning of each new year. Assuming the investor withdraws all gains yearly, the total return is 682.53%. During that same period, the Nasdaq 100 rose 30.5%, the Nasdaq Composite rose 51.7% and the S&P 500 rose 93.2%. Data dates are 5/9/2000 through 12/31/2014. All calculations include price appreciation plus dividends before commissions and taxes. For details, see Terms and Conditions.
