David here.

We’re coming to the end of one of the more volatile weeks that we’ve seen in an already-volatile year.

On November 9th, Pfizer and BioNTech announced that their COVID-19 vaccine has been more than 90% effective in their Phase 3 trial.

While this is the news we’ve been waiting for all year, it certainly sent shockwaves through the public markets. And while the news caused some stocks to rally hard (Pfizer, for example, was up 15% on Monday), tech stocks took the brunt of this week’s losses. On Monday, for example:

  • Zoom (NASDAQ: ZM) fell around 15%…
  • Peloton (NASDAQ: PTON) tumbled another 25%…
  • Slack (NYSE: WORK) lost around 2%…

And even bigger names like Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) saw losses as investors turned away from “stay-at-home” staples that have defined our lives over the past seven or so months.

You’re Invited to Phase 2 of this Brand-New Project

For three months, a small group of ordinary Americans have been learning a new options trading technique for the chance to score double-or-triple-digit returns in a matter of days or weeks. So far, the results are mind-blowing… and today, you’re invited to take part in Phase 2. Get all the information you need right here .

What happened here is what’s known as a sector rotation.

The idea is that investors will play market cycles by shifting their money from one sector to another, based on which sectors have the most growth potential.

This week’s vaccine announcement from Pfizer kicked a small rotation into action as investors turned their attention back to the companies that have taken a beating all year.

These are companies like Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC) and Carnival (NYSE: CCL), which saw Monday gains ranging from 11% to a whopping 51%, respectively.

But by Wednesday, the markets had pivoted back just as quickly as they’d shifted.

Rapidly rising cases of COVID-19 across the country have dimmed investor confidence in some of these recovery-related companies. Instead, investors went straight back to tech and “stay-at-home” stocks.

By the time the market closed on Wednesday, Amazon was back up 3.4%, Netflix was up 2.2%, and the entire S&P gained a small, but steady 0.77%.

On the flip side, stocks like Carnival had plunged 7.8% by Thursday.

As COVID-19 uncertainty continues to linger (despite a few hopeful vaccine candidates), it’s likely that this type of market volatility will continue…

And investors across the board are worried about what the next few weeks and months might look like for their bottom lines.

Now, I completely understand where that concern is coming from.

It’s uncomfortable to sit here and watch the markets flip-flop like this day after day.

But here’s the thing… markets ebb and flow all the time. While this was a bad week for the public markets, it’s going to turn around eventually.

That’s just how it works.

In other words, market volatility is not the time to be making rash decisions.

A couple of days of rotation is not a long-term, all-defining trend that should scare you away from the public markets in general…

And that’s exactly why we’re going to do what we’ve always done and keep a long-term perspective.

On the public side of things, the markets have been defined by dramatic success across the tech sector in particular. Despite tech’s losses this week, I believe tech is poised to keep succeeding for at least the next two to three decades.

And on the private side of things, I still believe that betting on tech startups will provide the biggest bang for your buck in the private markets.

With the upcoming regulatory changes from the SEC (more on those here), we’re also coming into one of the best times in history to be a startup investor that we have ever seen.

Overall, uncertainty like this is exactly why we do what we do.

We’re always on the lookout for the best ways to play these upswings and downswings, whether it’s through betting on long-term angel investments or learning exactly how to play ongoing market volatility to your benefit.

Personally, I think that every single investor should do both. There are opportunities just about everywhere, if you know where to find them.

My colleague Andrew Keene, for example, has been working on a brand-new project to teach his subscribers exactly how to make quick plays on today’s market that could hand them 100% gains (or more) in a week.

With these types of moves, you can get in and out quickly, without locking your money into a play that could bottom-out your account.

Today, he’s opening the doors even wider so you can take part in Phase 2 of this project… and he has three potential 100% gain recommendations lined up for you right now that could double your money in a week.
