The Most Dangerous Investing Advice EVER

One of the scariest things I’ve ever read is this quote by Ben Carlson of Yahoo Finance: “[T]o earn a respectable return on your capital, you have to be willing to lose money on occasion — sometimes a lot of money.”

I like Ben, but I have to disagree. Successful investors become wealthy not because they tolerate risk, but because they manage risk. If they can make more money with less risk, they’ll take that deal all day long.

That deal is what I set out to create when I started 3D Defender. It’s designed to protect stock market investors from downside volatility, while still allowing them to enjoy their upside.

I’m proud to say that it’s worked. 3D Defender has been profitable in 9 of the 11 worst peak-to-valley declines in the S&P 500 since its inception in 2011. Not only that, it’s been profitable overall. If you’d been in it, you would have had a smoother ride in the stock market and a more profitable ride.

If you’re tired of the (very tired) idea that winning at investing necessarily requires losing money, let me know. We are here for you.

Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. There is no assurance that our programs will achieve their objectives or avoid losses.
