How to Leverage a $45 Trillion Global Monster from the Comfort of Your Home


How to Leverage a $45 Trillion Global Monster from the Comfort of Your Home



7:04 AM

Dear Entrepreneur:

This week I’m going to show you a mind-boggling business opportunity and market.

The profit potential is enormous. 

But before I give you all the nuts and bolts I must warn you.

The downside risk in this market has ruined many would be millionaires.

I’m talking about the Treasury bond market or “T-bond” for short.

It’s a $45 trillion dollar worldwide cash monster.

I know….I know….. It sounds great, but what about an entrepreneur with limited cash, investment savvy or market knowledge?

Look……I started trading T-bond futures when my bank account was so small I was charged a minimum balance fee every month! But that didn’t stop me. 

What’s more, you can tap into this “global monster” from the comfort of your home.

Plus…..there are ways to reduce risk. When you learn how to reduce risk and avoid trading like Las Vegas losers….you can make a living in this market. 

What’s more, I was an average student in school. So being “smart” is NOT a prerequisite. 
 
But one thing helped me…..

I developed a passion for learning and this made all the difference. You could do the same thing.

And get this…..

I learned some neat trading strategies from close friend and professional trader. I’m going to show you one these strategies today.

My friend showed me how to trade without moving to Chicago or New York (where the two major exchanges are physically located). 

On top of that, he showed me how to limit my downside risk with a technique only professional traders utilize. 

I’ll show you the technique in a second.

But that’s not all….

Trading T-bond futures is a blast and much easier to do today thanks to the Internet.

Granted, there are a ton of seasoned, street smart T-bond traders with very, very deep pockets (i.e. lots of money)... and they love shearing “sheep” (small speculators) when they enter the market. 

But it’s a fairly level playing field, and you’ll have access to same opportunities to make a living in this business as they do.

It’s real simple…..

There are ways to make in this market if you have limited resources too. 

In fact, there are contracts specifically designed for smaller speculators called “mini” contracts. These were not available when I started trading. 

But in order to walk into a $45 trillion market and remove money from the table, you’ll need to understand how the game is played. And you can’t learn everything in 15 minutes.

Actually, you’ll need to understand how the game is played by successful professional traders who consistently remove profits from the market.

When you open a trading account with a commodity brokerage, you’ll see a lot of “fine print” in the application. But it’s the same amount of fine print you would see when you open a bank account or buy a piece of property. 

Don’t let the fine print discourage you from starting this business and making money!

Don’t kid yourself. There’s a risk of losing money in this business ... and I’m not pulling any punches.

No One is Holding a Gun to Your Head!

I read a story about a man from who purchased a motel near Walt Disney World. 

The gentleman purchased the motel for almost one million dollars. He told local reporters his business was (in his words) “breaking even.” 

Anyway, the gentleman was robbed at gunpoint by a 20 year old kid with a 357 magnum handgun. 

If you’ve ever looked into the barrel of a 357 magnum, you know how terrified the motel owner must have been.

The motel owner told reporters he was still shaking a week later. He decided to install a bullet proof shield around the motel check-in counter for protection in the future.

That’s my definition of a HIGH RISK business opportunity!

No one is going to hold a gun to your head when you’re trading T -bonds. 

Granted, there may be some stress and fatigue involved when you trade a market this large (and fast moving).

But…..at least you won’t be investing a million dollars into a venture that might break even ... and be scarred for life after getting robbed.

As I’ve said…..there is a financial risk trading T-bonds. But I’ll show you how professional traders limit risk, and how they manage profits too.

The bond market – also known as the debt, credit, or fixed income market – is a financial market where participants buy and sell debt securities. The size of the international bond market is an estimated $45 trillion+.

“What are T-Bonds? --- How Do I Trade Them”?

A futures contract is a standardized contract, traded on a futures exchange, to buy or sell a certain underlying asset at a certain date in the future at a pre-set price. 

The buy or sell date is called the delivery date or final settlement date. The pre-set price is called the futures price. The price of the underlying asset on the delivery date is called the settlement price. The settlement price normally converges toward the futures price on the delivery date. 

Stay with me now ... 

A futures contract gives the holder the obligation to buy or sell an asset like corn, gold, currencies, or, in this case, Treasury bonds. 

Both parties of a “futures contract” must fulfill the contract on the settlement date. The seller delivers the asset to the buyer – or, if it is a cash-settled future like T- bonds, cash is transferred from the futures trader who sustained the loss to the one who made the profit. 

It’s that simple.

To exit the commitment prior to the settlement date, the holder of a futures position has to offset his position by either selling a long position or buying back a short position, effectively closing out the futures position and its contract obligations.

Futures contracts – usually just called futures – are traded electronically on almost every financial exchange in the world with a system called GLOBEX.

The exchange's clearinghouse acts as counterparty on all contracts, sets margin requirements, etc.

You’ll find current futures settlement prices in just about every national newspaper that has a finance section and on any viable financial website.

An Insider Trading Secret

Amateur traders in every financial market usually become invincible after a large winning trade.
What’s more, they often become arrogant and feel like Superman (I’ve been there and done that!)

As a result, they don't know how or when to stop and take their profits.

But professional traders approach the market with a calm, deliberate assurance. 

On top of that, successful traders have learned the market is predictable to a degree

Here’s what I mean……

Every market tends to move in cycles, trends, or waves.

The insider trading secret I discovered utilizes these cycles. 

The essence of this trading secret is to leverage your positions through a series of four trades. Then and only then you remove your profits and start over again ... small. 

You see……starting small and only risking a small amount of capital on any given trade is an extremely powerful concept.

Hypothetical T- Bond Trade

Here’s a hypothetical trade using my insider trading secret. 

Picture an inverted (upside-down) pyramid in your mind. Now you have the basis of what this trading strategy is all about.

Let’s say you think T-bond futures are going to rise dramatically because of tension in the Egypt, or for some other reason. 

So you buy one June 2011 T-bond futures contract “at the market” (the current market price). This is the first in a series of four trades.

Your assumption proves correct – and the June 2011 T-bond futures contract takes off.
The next step is to sell this June 2011 T-bond contract “at the market”. When this order is filled, you buy TWO June 2011 T-bond contracts. This is the second trade in a series of four trades.
Okay…..let’s say the T-bond market continues higher. Now you sell the TWO June 2011 T-bond contracts at the market.

When this order is filled, you purchase THREE June 2011 T-bond futures contracts at the market. This is the third trade in a series of four trades.

Do you see the pattern here? On paper, it looks like an inverted pyramid.



Each time you increase the number of contracts that you buy or sell, your profit or loss will increase exponentially as well.

In our hypothetical trade, we have completed three trades in our four trade series. 

Now we're going to sell THREE June 2011 T-bond futures contracts at the market. 

When this order is filled we’ll buy FOUR June 2011 T-bond futures contracts at the market.
In the real world, markets do not go straight up or straight down indefinitely. 

But in our hypothetical example, let's say the June 2011 T-bond futures continue to surge. 

Finally…..we sell all FOUR June 2011T-bond futures contracts at the market. This completes our series of four trades. 

Now we're going to remove most of our profits from the market – whether it’ s $5,000, 


$10,000, $20,000, or whatever – and put this money into a separate account.
Then we can do another series of four trades

But…and this is very important…. we're going to start over again small. 

That’s the important thing to remember about this trading strategy.

Most amateur traders “let it ride” – like they’re high rollers in Las Vegas.

96% of the people who gamble in Las Vegas lose. Most people lose more than they’re willing to admit to.

But we're approaching T-bond futures like a professional. 

A professional trader leaves the game with some money in his pocket. Amateurs leave the game shell-shocked and broke or worse.

The insider secret I’ve outlined today has probably produced more millionaires than any other system.

And keep in mind that we were using minimal trading positions in our hypothetical example.
Top traders use this insider technique by trading hundreds of contracts in each four-trade series before they remove all their profits ... and then start over again SMALL.
 
That’s exactly how to make money by trading T-bonds like the big boys.

This strategy also enables you to limit your risk, because you won’t be “pyramiding” your positions indefinitely. 

Trading T-bond futures won’t be an ideal business for every entrepreneur. For one thing some trading capital is required .

And, make no mistake about it, there’s a lot more to understanding this market and business than what I’ve shared with you today. 

That’s why I’ve included a bunch of valuable resources for you at the end of this issue.
But you can make money – a lot of money in this market– whether T-bond prices go up, down or sideways. 

It’s definitely worth looking into.

Your humble host,


Marc Charles

***** Action Strategy *****

A super low risk way to trade T-Bond is with exchange traded funds or ETFs.

The only money you risk is the initial purchase price you pay per share.

You can start trading these immediately.

Here are three top T Bond ETFs:

·        Shares Barclays 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT)
·        ProShares Short 20+ Year Treasury (TBF)
·        ProShares Ultra 20+ Year Treasury (UBT)

If you prefer the leveraging power and money making potential of T Bond futures you can practice on paper without risking a dime!

Don’t kid yourself – there are substantial risks trading T Bond futures. So my recommendation is to paper trade to get a feel for the market. And then when you are ready and have the resources to trade you can open a real T Bond futures trading account.

Depression Cash Cures by Marc Charles




Depression Cash Cures!

Three Surprising HOT Business Opportunities You Can Leverage Immediately



6:17 AM

Dear Entrepreneur:
“Come on Marc…we’re in a depression! Half of the opportunities you cover won’t work when people stop spending money. Show me something that’ll work in a Depression”!
I disagree with this reader’s assumption.

And here’s why…

Over the years I’ve become an expert at spotting legitimate business opportunities for start-up entrepreneurs… 

Heck, come to think of it – my discoveries have helped hundreds of seasoned entrepreneurs too!

I’m attracted to opportunities which don’t require a boatload of money, mountains of red tape or regulation, or require slew of employees to run. 

Granted, some ventures need talented people to grow exponentially. 

But I always lean toward businesses which can easily retain freelance workers, independent contractors, and/or use world-class outsourcing.

What’s more, I like businesses with growth and upside potential. 

In other words, I like businesses that can be started small and have the potential to grow large.

One of the reasons my businesses (and those of my clients) are doing so well in the current economy is because I’ve always approached business from a “recession” state of mind.

In other words, I’ve always “pretended” to be in an economic crisis. 

I probably developed this “neurosis” by doing business over the last 29 years in every conceivable market, economy and condition.

Interestingly….I began to see how the economy, financial markets, and business are subject to abrupt changes… often without warning. 

And so I’m super-cautious about being “over-extended” with overhead expenses, debt, inventory, red tape or lazy, expensive employees when the carpet is pulled out from beneath me!

A couple of years ago one of my consulting clients acted on my advice.  

My client, H.G., dramatically reduced his business debt, unloaded highly-leveraged real estate, and slashed his payroll (lazy employees) by more than 30%. 

H.G. also committed to improving direct marketing and advertising copy. 

Today, my client is a “happy camper” and doing extremely well.  

In fact, he’s one of the few companies in their market who realized a net profit in 2010.
Another advantage to not being “over-extended” in a recession is this…….

Most entrepreneurs are unable (or unwilling) to reduce expenses until it’s too late. 

You see….

One of the hardest things to do in business is cut expenses and lower prices customers pay in a recession…let alone in a DEPRESSION. Most businesses bite the dust.

On top of that, most entrepreneurs tend to spend much more than they actually make.  In other words, most entrepreneurs are not frugal and it becomes obvious when times are tough.

In business, I’m passionate about cutting costs, reducing overhead, and finding ways to improve marketing, even when a business is doing well. 

The end result, or benefit, is when an economy tanks (and it always does), or if something cataclysmic occurs (like a lawsuit or products/services become obsolete), business owners will be in a better position to weather the storm.

Anyway, I’m reaping the benefits (and so are my consulting clients) by preparing ahead of time – and by having a “recession” state of mind. 

This isn’t being negative. It’s about living in the real world of business, finance and money.
I hope the subscriber writing to me is willing to learn how to prosper in difficult times because The League of Power is packed with practical insight and expertise on the subject.

The business opportunities this week can be launched (and run profitably) in a recession and a Depression.

So let’s get to it! 

I’ve identified 3opportunities and sectors which should perform well no matter what happens to the economy or financial markets. 

I typically focus on ONE IDEA or business each week….think of this week’s article as a special bonus (no charge!).

In order to find to the truth about what’s really going on, and how to prosper in difficult times, we need to dig a little deeper.

This week’s issue is about leveraging opportunities in difficult times.

Every Crisis Presents Opportunities

Bill Bartman made a fortune in the last recession and in the current depression buying and converting bad debt into good (Google his name for details – his latest book is pretty good too).

The global economy is in serious trouble. The U.S., Canada, Mexico and Europe have been hit especially hard.

But in this fiasco we’ll find incredible opportunities for entrepreneurs of every shape and size all over the place.

My daughter, who is 16 years old, was complaining recently about not having enough money for a new iPhone. 

And so my daughter started a small Web-based business. She earns money on her site with Google AdSense…but she wants to earn more (what’s new!).

I showed my daughter how to make an extra $70 a week working a couple of hours doing something she loves (working with animals). 

Now remember…..we’re in a depression. I thought nobody has any money to spend. 

But it’s amazing how much money people spend when it comes to their pets!

Anyway, my daughter is walking dogs (and cats) for owners who don’t have the time to do it, or because they just want their pets to enjoy other people and pets.

My daughter loves animals, especially Pomeranian dogs. 

Best of all, she loves the idea of getting paid to walk dogs

It only took a couple of minutes to start her business. Forget about all the paperwork, logos, business cards, computers, and spreadsheets and just get busy closing a sale.

My daughter developed two banner ads for a popular local websites. This took about an hour. I committed $50 to advertising her business (with the banner ads) on the site for 30 days.

A Prediction….

I predicated my daughter would receive six calls or e-mail inquires in the first week of her business – if “The King of Business Opportunities” wrote the ad copy!

I’ll keep you posted on the results. 

I’m confident my daughter will do extremely well walking dogs (and cats) if she does three things:

1) Focuses on one customer at a time
2) Provide a loving, caring service – and ALWAYS be prompt
2) Use direct marketing utilizing powerful ad copy
4) Closes sales (and always get written or video testimonials from clients)

If my daughter charges $20 per week for two 30-minute walks per customer, she’ll clear $80 per month. 

If she has three clients (which shouldn’t be difficult in a town of 7,000 people) she’ll make $240 per month.

$240 per month divided by 4 weeks = $60 per week.

The point is: Every crisis presents opportunities.

People do not like to see their pets suffer. Economic cycles like recessions and depressions are irrelevant. 

Look, I realize most of you will not be interested in a dog walking business!



Let’s get to this week’s opportunities!

These opportunities should perform well in the current economy. 

Most of the businesses do not require a boatload of money to start. In addition, most of them have low fixed expenses and overhead too. 

If you think that’s great, then you’ll love this…

Some of the businesses can be run from anywhere in the world where there’s Internet access, a telephone and/or satellite communications.

Hot Opportunity #1
Internet Direct Response 

Despite of the world financial crisis Internet shopping and sales has rebounded in a big way.
In fact, Internet ecommerce is at record levels and continues to climb.
Internet direct response businesses which offer high demand products at fair prices (and free shipping) are doing well – even in the current downturn.

Internet direct response includes selling products on eBay, Bing, Buy.com, Amazon.com and other high traffic shopping sites. But there are some little-known tactics and strategies almost no one knows about…until now.

Digital products are a hot rising trend too. This market includes ebooks, tutorials, software, and Kindle books.

ClickBank.com is the largest digital marketplace on the Internet, and growing.  

Hot Opportunity #2
Commodity Futures and Forex Trading (especially energy, agriculture, precious metals and currencies)

Futures and Forex trading is one of the great “laptop liberating” businesses. You can run this business from practically anywhere in the world!

The futures and Forex markets are not dependent on a vibrant economy. Trillions of dollars are traded electronically every day…no matter what happens to the Pound, Euro or Dollar!

Granted, there is substantial downside risk trading futures and Forex contracts, don’t kid yourself. But you can reduce your risk and exposure like a professional.

You can start trading some markets for an initial investment of $5000 – and some brokerages offer accounts for $2500 ($1,000 for Forex).

On top of that, you can “practice” or “paper trade” before risking a dime too! Check out a new $50,000 Forex Trading “Practice” Account.

Hot Opportunity #3
Freelance EVERYTHING!

Writing, sales, consulting, programming, marketing, SEO and more….

Experts are calling it the Freelance Decade…..and for good reason.

Millions of people around the world are getting fired every month.  The way to make a stable, dependable income is to go freelance.

Heck….I’ll even show you how to submit winning freelance proposals to companies laying people off!

There are an abundance of freelance opportunities in practically every field and profession.
Freelance websites like Guru.com, eLance.com and CraigsList are among the top traffic sites on the Internet.

The trend for freelance workers is up! Check out these top freelance sites: Project4Hire, Freelancer.com & Guru.com.

The economy, financial markets, and business are subject to abrupt changes… usually without warning. 

But with abrupt changes, like economic uncertainty, amazing opportunities have a way of opening up.

I’ve outlined three areas and markets which are hot rising trends and should perform well in the current depression.

I’m always open to feedback! Post your thoughts on the League of Power Forum, or drop me an email.

Money, Money, Money by Marc Charles


Money, Money, Money!

Getting the Cash You Need Quickly and Easily by Going to Right Place and the Right Time



5:27 AM

Dear Entrepreneur:

Money makes the world go round…..or is that love?

Well…..let’s just say money makes business go round.

One question I often receive is, “Do you have any money sources I could use”?

Most of the entrepreneurs know I’m not a big fan of borrowing money to start a business.

But sometimes money can help you expand a profitable business, get equipment, or branch out into other ventures.

On top of that, when you have access to capital you can acquire a business, develop real estate, buy manufacturing a plant or import products from other countries…to cite a few examples.

Today  I’ll focus on legitimate money and lending sources.  

I’ve included links to angel investors, venture capital, grants, low (and no) interest loans and more.

Let’s get this party started…..and get the money you need!

There is a cardinal rule of successful borrowing and getting the money you need.

It is this……

Focus on the bank, investor or money sources which specialize in the type of loan you seek.

In other words, if a bank, investment firm or money source specialize in loans for real estate, then seek this source for real estate deals.

If a bank or money source specializes in business acquisition or expansion, then seek these them for this purpose.

Too often entrepreneurs approach a bank with a great proposal or executive summary only to be turned down.

For example, if you approach a small local bank for a loan to expand your import business the chances are slim to none of obtaining it.

What’s more, if you approach a Wall Street investment bank for a $40,000 auto loan, you’ll probably be turned down.

But….if you apply for an auto loan at a local credit union specializing in auto loans the chances are very high you’ll get it!

It’s important to focus on the bank or money sources which specialize in the type of loan you seek.

Grants follow this same logic….

The reason most grant proposals are turned down is because they don’t focus on grantor’s sole objective. If you want grant money to build your operation then build your proposal around the grantor’s sole objective (not yours).

One of my favorite money source gurus is Tyler Hicks. If you research his site, books and products you’ll see what I mean. I’ve been a subscriber to his newsletters for more than 15 years.

Solvent Investment Banks

An investment bank is a financial institution which assists corporations and governments in raising capital by underwriting and acting as the agent in the issuance of securities.

In other words, an investment bank typically focuses on larger corporations and governments to raise capital.

Investment banks do not usually work with small companies or entrepreneurs.

An investment bank also helps companies involved in mergers and acquisitions.
Unlike commercial and retail banks investment banks do not receive deposits from customers.










Hot Money Sources on the Web!





FreddieMac (They’re still in business and making loans!)


As I said…Ty Hicks publishes International Wealth Success which focuses on money sources, grants, angel investors and contacts in the lending industry. You’ll find hundreds of viable money sources and contacts at IWS. IWS also publishes books, email and print newsletters.

Fast Cash Loans and Money Additional Money Sources

Fast cash or micro business loan are usually in the $1000 to $20,000 range.

Philanthropists Hand Donate Cash for the “Right” Causes

Wealthy individuals enthusiastically hand over millions of dollars through foundations, to people and causes.

The “right cause” is a key to receiving money for your cause or venture.
The likelihood of receiving money from wealthy individuals to pay bills, buy a new car, or acquire a new boat is pretty slim.

But thousands of people, groups and organizations receive money from wealthy individuals by asking for it, or by promising to commit the funds to the “right cause”.

The late Percy Ross in Edina Minnesota was the founder of the “Thanks a Million” newspaper column. It reached millions of people every week. Individuals could write to Percy with their requests, and many of the requests were honored with an award.

Here are some wealthy individuals and organizations granting cash awards to the “right causes” on a regular basis:

I’ve included a boatload of money sources, angel investors, loan resources and more in this week’s issue.

Always remember to focus on the bank, investor or money sources which specialize in the type of funding you seek. This will increase your odds of getting the money you need a hundred fold!

I hope that helps.

Your humble host,

Marc Charles

***** Action Strategy *****
Why do you need money?

Is it to acquire or expand a business?

Or would you like to develop some real estate or buy foreclosed homes and condos?

Whatever the reason it’s important to focus on the bank or money sources which specialize in the type of loan you seek.

In other words, if a bank, investment bank or money source specializes in loans for real estate, then go to this source for real estate deals.

Contact the money source and ask them for an application, or to explain their process for getting the capital you need.

Granted, everyone gets turned down for money requests. No problem. If you focus on money sources ALREADY granting requests in your area, the odds increase in your favor…..in a big way!

Have fun and play nice.
