In a bull market, everyone is a genius because it does not take any skill to get great returns.

However, the real test of your portfolio is during a market crash or crisis. How will it fare if the stock market drops 50%?

If your portfolio is anti-fragile, it will actually benefit from such market volatility, and give you opportunities to buy assets on discount.

For the past 2 months, the Covid-19 virus (Wuhan virus, Coronavirus) which originated in China was highly contagious, but it managed to remain mostly in China, hence the global community as a whole did not seem that worred about it, as seem by how the Us markets continued to run up.

However, it now seems that the virus is speaking to other countries quickly, with outbreaks in South Korea, Italy, and the Middle East (Iran), sparking fears that this might go out of hand and create a global pandemic.

Spread of the Covid-19 Virus

As we can see from the map, the virus has spread to most of the developed economies, thankfully sparing Africa and South America.

It would be disastrous if the virus did get there, as they are battling many other problems and other diseases (eg. Ebola).

The cases are still growing daily at an alarming rate, but at least it is no longer exponential.

The risk, however, is that clusters of outbreaks in various parts of the world might cause another exponential spike in cases.

 

Bearishness in Aussie Dollar (AUD)

Safe haven assets like Gold, Bitcoin and USD have been strong, while currencies like NZD, EUR and AUD have weakened the most.

 

Here are some of the recent analysis and trades of AUD/USD and AUD/CAD:

 

Gold as a Hedge Against Stock Declines

Gold is a good hedge against a crash in the stock market, because it is viewed as a safe haven asset, especially when the crash is happening.

Since the stock market is at all time highs, we have advised our students to add Gold to their investment portfolio.

Gold has since rallied strongly, and will likely continue to outperform.

From 2017 to 2019, Tesla was trading between the range of $180 to $400.

All that changed when it broke above $400, then went to $500, then $600, then $700, then $800, then $900, all within the span of a few weeks. Will it hit $1000 next?

In this video, I explain my reasons for buying Tesla stock, how I screwed up the trade, and how you can tackle parabolic charts such as this.

With the Wuhan Coronavirus scare in the past 1-2 months, the stock markets have been cautiously bullish, but it somehow feels that the market is still in risk-off mode.

Currencies like the EUR have been weakening, whereas “safe haven” assets like USD, Gold and Bitcoin have been very bullish.

Here are some of the trade signals taken from our private “Synapse Network”, which we post daily for our members:

 

Weakness in the Euro (EUR)

Based on the currency strength meter, we can see that Gold and Bitcoin are the strongest, whereas EUR is the weakest.

Hence shorting EUR against the USD and against the CHF were very profitable trades for us.

 

Strength in the US Dollar (USD)

We managed to identify early the breakout of USD against the Singapore dollar (SGD), giving us a very good early entry and the ability to hold (or even add!) onto the trade and ride profits confidently.

This lead to a windfall trade of 400+ profits just from this one trade!

 

The Rise of Bitcoin (BTC/USD)

At the start of the year we identified the emerging strength of Bitcoin, and advised everyone to get in early before the real price movement starts.

At that time, price was only $8,000+, and since then, price has surged up to $10,000+, giving a minimal 20% ROI for this trade, and it’s just the start of the year!
