Remember the "Flash Crash"? Three years later, we're still not protected...

The Next Stock Market Glitch
Could Bankrupt You...
And It Could Happen
Tomorrow

High-frequency traders are pushing the market to the brink at warp speed every day. Regular investors are "sitting ducks," according to Forbes.

Find out how to protect yourself immediately.


Dear Reader,

Thursday, May 6, 2010, started like any other trading day.

I remember watching my computer screen around lunchtime as something shocking happened...

The S&P 500 -- which was already down that day -- started to plummet at rapid speed.

Five minutes later, the market had fallen nearly 9%. It was the largest intraday loss in history. Nearly $1 trillion in market value, wiped away in the blink of an eye.

Almost $200 million per minute... vanished into thin air.

Then, just as quickly as it started, the so-called "Flash Crash" was over. The market made up the lost ground in 20 minutes, and everything returned to normal.

So what the hell really happened?

Behind the scenes, the culprit was high-frequency trading -- automatic trades executed by computers hundreds of thousands of times per day.

The "Flash Crash" started when one trading desk entered a large trade.

When the abnormally large order was plugged in, these automatic programs couldn't adapt to the rise in trading volume, and the whole system went haywire. One downward trade led to another until an avalanche of computerized orders sped down the hill.

Only the intervention of human hands stopped the doom. But next time, we might not be so lucky.

You see, companies spend millions of dollars to get market information milliseconds before the rest of the world. And then they use that info to pick up tiny fractions of profits, over and over again, every minute.

And it's happening even more frequently today than in 2010.

More than five out of every 10 trades made on the market right now are done by mindless computers.

One report by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) says that high-frequency trading costs regular traders $5.05 per trade on S&P 500 futures contracts.

This epidemic is only getting worse...

After the "Flash Crash," most traders tried to laugh it off and treat the incident as a fluke.

But not me. I knew right then that I was done with the stock market.

I wasn't going to leave my money to the mercy of computers programmed by greed-thirsty cutthroats.

Besides that, the meager rewards in today's stock market were NOT worth the potential risk. The level of uncertainty in the markets was too much for me to stomach.

I began unwinding my investments, removing the vast majority of my savings from the stock market.

And I started putting my money in a few unique -- and extremely safe -- investments. Most people have never heard of them... but they have unbelievable profit potential -- and they have nothing to do with the stock market.

Making the move to alternative investment strategies literally changed my life. I became more relaxed. I stopped sitting in front of my computer all day, worrying about the markets.

It's true. Once I got away from the markets' madness -- my quality of life improved greatly.

My name is Aaron Gentzler. I wrote this letter because I want to show you how to do the same thing. I want to help you protect yourself from stock market peril.

And I want to show you a better way to invest than chasing the fool's gold of fleeting gains.

In this letter, I'll show you how to leave the stock market behind and make more money than you ever thought possible.

In a moment, I'll tell you about one investment that could make you 12% every year -- without touching the stock market.

This investment has gone up at least 5% every year -- for the last 62 years.

But first, let me explain why it is so important that you protect yourself right away.

Speeding Toward Danger...

The risk of a catastrophic, computer-generated loss in the market is even bigger nearly three years after the "Flash Crash."

Over the last few months, the rate of share prices being affected by glitches has been alarming...

  • Nov. 11, 2012: A glitch at the NYSE Euronext disrupted trading for a day.Closing prices for more than 200 stocks, including CVS and U.S. Steel, had to be determined by a backup method.

  • Oct. 3, 2012: Kraft Foods shares spiked on the Nasdaq, forcing the big-board operator to cancel trades.

  • Aug. 1, 2012: A computer glitch in its in-house trading platform nearly bankrupts Knight Capital Group, drawing scrutiny from Congress.

  • May 18, 2012: The Nasdaq has problems filling orders and double books investors during Facebook's IPO.

Lately, the stakes have been raised...

Some trading companies are spending enormous sums of money to become a millisecond quicker than their competitors.

  • Spread Networks LLC paid an estimated $300 million to connect an underground fiber-optic cable between New York and Chicago just to gain a three-thousandths of a second advantage over the market.

  • Oct. 3, 2012: Kraft Foods shares spiked on the Nasdaq, forcing the big-board operator to cancel trades.

  • When this winter is over, Hibernia Atlantic will bury a $300 million wire under the Atlantic Ocean to connect New York and London. The result will bring these two financial hubs 5.2 milliseconds closer -- tightening a crucial gap for high-frequency traders.

  • NeXXCom Wireless LLC builds microwave network connections for trading firms between New York and Chicago for $6 million each. The result will improve connections by just fractions of a second.

As I said before, more than one of every two trades are made by computers. An ETF that tracks the S&P 500 trades its entire capitalization and more every single week, for example.

That's probably why Forbes recently called the average investor a "sitting duck."

"Now it seems 'buy and hold' is for suckers," it added.

Unless you're prepared to trade all day, every day... you're at a major disadvantage. Very few individual investors have that kind of time.

Even worse, these trades are done with very little supervision. It's been three years since the "Flash Crash," and the SEC still doesn't have a clue.

It's only recently started setting up a system to monitor these trades.

And guess who's running the system?

Tradeworx, one of the largest high-frequency trading companies out there.

I'll repeat: The SEC's monitoring system is run by the high-frequency traders themselves.

Talk about the fox guarding the henhouse.

The time to make a choice has come.

Do you really want to leave your investments exposed to being wiped out by a computer?

Do you need to waste time with the Wall Street drama anymore?

Let me give you a quick piece of advice:

Take as much money as possible out of the stock market. Right away.

Everything coming for the market is bad. I specialize in finding unconventional assets that are safer -- and potentially more lucrative -- than investing in stocks.

And today, I want to tell you about a very special wealth-building investment I recently uncovered.

It's called a "Phi Account" -- and it hasn't lost money in over 62 years. Since 1998, "Phi Accounts" have made 12% per year.

Even better, they have nothing to do with the stock market.

Let me tell you a little more about this incredible -- and completely under-the-radar -- opportunity.

Now Available to Yield-Hungry Investors...
The 12%"Phi Account"

Bryan Gould was fed up with stocks.

Like a lot of us, the 63-year-old Californian was tired of the market's stomach-churning roller-coaster ride.

He knew there had to be another way to make steady gains... without all of the ups and downs.

That's when he discovered what I like to call the "Phi Account."

Despite more than 30 successful years in the investing business, Bryan had never heard of this unique alternative to stocks.

But as he investigated further, he was amazed at the obscure "Phi Account's" history of steady gains.

Since 1950, the majority of "Phi Accounts" have never earned less than 5% in any year.

And since 1998, they've gone up 12% per year.

Even better, "Phi Accounts" have nothing to do with the stock market.

So Bryan took a chance and moved a portion of his money into a "Phi Account."

Boy, was he happy he did...

Even while the stock market crashed twice in a nine-year period, Bryan's "Phi Account" gained over 264%.

A small $5,000 investment into the same account as Bryan's would've returned $13,200... $25,000 would've netted $66,000 in profits.

And that's during nine of the most tumultuous years in stock market history.

"It's beyond my expectations," Bryan said. "It's better than the stock market."

Nate Soderberg was fed up when he started putting a relatively small amount of his modest savings into a "Phi Account."

The 47-year-old English mechanic didn't trust the stock market anymore. He wanted a place where he could stash his money and count on it to go up.

He wasn't looking to strike it rich; he just wanted to sleep easier at night, knowing his retirement was squared away.

Nate is happy to report that his "Phi Account" has returned between "8% and 12% every year."

Over the last two years alone, his "Phi Account" went up 133%.

"Not bad when you see what interest rates are like at the moment and how the stock market has performed in recent years," Nate said.

"I see [it] as a pension, to be quite honest."

Imagine an investment that hasn't gone down in 62 years... but has the potential to double your money in just two.

That's the "Phi Account." And there's nothing like it on the stock market.

Now you can experience the same peace of mind as Bryan and Nate. You can leave the worries of traditional investments like stocks and bonds behind -- and have a chance to make more money than you ever thought possible.

So where do you sign up for a "Phi Account"?

Don't call up a broker, that's for sure.

The "Phi Account" is not what you would call a "mainstream investment." Regular stockbrokers aren't authorized to trade it.

In fact, it's safe to say most brokers have never even heard of it.

Only a few small firms around the world have the expertise and experience to run a "Phi Account" successfully.

The company behind the 12% "Phi Account" has been around since 1846. It even holds a royal warrant.

It's one of only 850 in the entire world -- and it means the company is a preferred business partner of the monarchy.

That's right. The queen has a "Phi Account."

Queen Elizabeth, the longtime head of the British royal family, opened her "Phi Account" in 1956.

And while the queen won't disclose her gains, it's interesting to note that the crown jewels, and most other royal assets, technically belong to the people.

Not the queen's "Phi Account." It's privately held on the tiny Channel Island of Guernsey.

The queen knows the value of an investment that generates consistent gains with an impeccable history of long-term safety.

That's why the stock market won't do for her money...

You see, "Phi Accounts" have nothing to do with stocks, bonds, ETFs, mutual funds or options. They're not subject to government manipulation or the whims of the Federal Reserve.

That's what makes them extremely safe.

Let's face it: While every investment comes with a risk, the numbers don't lie.

Over the last 160 years, "Phi Accounts" have proven safer than pretty much anything else you could put your money into.

Banks have seen numerous failures -- including the recent bailouts. Four percent of the corporate bonds on the market go bust every year.

And the ones that don't pay paltry yields because of the Fed's low interest rate policy.

And while the stock market has crashed four times in the last 83 years, the "Phi Account" I'm writing about today has never seen a collapse in value.

Now, historically, many "Phi Accounts" have required a minimum investment of at least $10,000 -- if not more.

That's why they've long been a tool for the wealthy -- and rarely advertised to the general public.

But at this moment, you have a limited-time opportunity to find success using this special "Phi Account." And you can get started with as little as $500.

You could earn 12% or more, every year, just like Bryan and Nate. Some years, you might make even more.

In a moment, I'll show you exactly how the "Phi Account" works -- and why it's able to climb, year after year.

I'll also show you how to sign up for your very own 12% "Phi Account" today -- and how to start with as little as $500.

But first, as an investment expert, I want to give you an urgent warning...

Get out of Stocks Now

I imagine that by the time you read this letter, one of the largest tax hikes in history will have passed into law.

Congress and President Obama squandered an opportunity to get our country's finances in order.

Instead of making real, lasting changes, they opted to jack up everyone's taxes -- and let blanket spending cuts to defense and health pass uncontested.

All they've done is throw the market into chaos. Even if they do come to a deal, it will be only a half-assed quick patch. We'll be having this discussion all over again next year.

Who knows... It might get worse in February. That's when the same inept government will have to negotiate another increase in the debt ceiling with its back against the wall.

Last time this happened, in August 2011, the market went haywire. Stocks fell over 11% in a 10-day period. The S&P downgraded the credit of the U.S. government.

This time around, with the poisonous mood in Washington and a brand-new group of legislators entering the Capitol -- it could get very ugly.

Austan Goolsbee, a former economic advisor to President Obama, told The Wall Street Journal that a lot of people think Congress is "not so stupid that they'll let this happen.

"But look, they are that stupid. They could easily be that stupid."

David Crane, chief executive of NRG Energy, a power generation and electricity firm that could be hard-hit by higher taxes, said:

"I think everyone just has this fear that they'll just do as they've done the last four years and lob grenades at each other.

"You just don't play with craziness like our government is playing with right now."

If you have any investments tied to stocks -- a 401(k), mutual fund, etc. -- you don't want to get caught up in this government-created mess.

And for a double whammy, things are taking a turn for the worse for income investors.

The tax on dividends just tripled for some Americans, thanks to Congressional dithering.

The very safest stocks -- blue chips that pay healthy dividends -- have been hurt the most from the combination of dividend tax hikes and spending cuts.

Michael Feroli, chief economist at JPMorgan Chase, told The Wall Street Journal he estimates that on just the tax hikes alone, investors could bid down the market capitalization of U.S. companies by $1.5 trillion.

That's 6% of the market cap of all U.S. stocks.

The expected tax increases have started a chain reaction in the corporate world.

Steve Wynn, CEO of Wynn Resorts, says:

"When the taxes on dividends are too high, then companies don't distribute."

Defense and health companies are feeling the crunch from both ends, putting increased selling pressure on their stocks and being forced to rethink their future profits.

Lockheed Martin, the world's largest defense contractor, gets 82% of its revenue from the U.S. government. The company has said the automatic cuts could force it to dismiss 10,000 workers. Similar stories are heard throughout the industry.

And keep in mind that I haven't even mentioned the economic turmoil in Europe or a potential war in the Middle East that could also lead to heavy losses over the next few months as things get worse.

Everything happening in the market is bad. In the near term, you'll gain nothing by investing in stocks.

And why do it, anyway... when you can move at least a portion of your money into a safe, reliable 12% "Phi Account" right now.

You could make 12% per year without worrying about government stupidity or stock market manipulation.

You could finally rest easy, knowing the value of your retirement won't collapse overnight.

Even without the multitude of problems facing the market right now, the "Phi Account" still beats stocks -- including blue chips -- over the long term... in good times and bad.

Take a look:

Seven Times Better Than the S&P 500

Since 1998, "Phi Accounts" have gained 12% per year. And since 1950, they haven't made less than 5% in any year.

Chart: Growth per Year Since 1998, 12% Phi Account Growth vs. 1.7% S&P 500 Growth

Take a look at this chart, and you'll see that the S&P 500 has gone up only 1.7% per year since 1998.

"Phi Accounts" overall have done seven times better than that.

The SPDR Dividend 100 index was created in 2005 to track the 60 large-cap companies that have raised their dividends every year for the last 25 years. The best of the best.

Since its inception, it's gained a respectable 8.8% per year. Yet that still lags behind the average annual gains of some of these "Phi Accounts.

Even more telling is its performance during a time of financial crisis...

In 2008, lots of mainstream investors rushed into these supposedly safe, dividend-paying blue-chip stocks as a shelter from the swirling markets.

Between June 30 and Sept. 22, 2008, the SPDR Dividend 100 index went up 21%...

Just two months later, it was down 30%. It got so bad, it didn't even pay its standard fourth-quarter dividend.

And by March 2009, the index had lost nearly half of its value -- precisely at the time when it was supposed to be a safe haven.

Meanwhile, most "Phi Accounts" had a better year than normal.

The "Phi Account" I'm writing about today went up 38% in 2008.

The same thing that happened then is happening right now.

Investors who poured their money into blue-chip dividend stocks over the last few months are starting to feel the pain...

Wouldn't you rather keep your money safely tucked away in a "Phi Account," earning steady gains every year?

Let's face it. The old ways of making money on the stock market are obsolete.

Buy and Hold Is Dead

The investing game has changed.

For several years, the mantra on Wall Street was "buy and hold."

You were supposed to buy stocks at cheap valuations and hold them for the long term. Ideally, collecting dividend income the whole time.

And for a lot of years, that strategy worked.

"Now it seems 'buy and hold' is for suckers," announced Forbes recently.

In the age of lightning-fast Internet and complex trading platforms, machines have taken over.

These high-frequency traders jump in and out of stocks every minute, hoping to catch fractions of a penny in gains.

If you're an individual investor, you're a "sitting duck," according to Forbes.

Unless you're prepared to trade all day, every day... you're at a major disadvantage.

Very few individual investors have that kind of time.

Most of us have jobs or are enjoying an active retirement. We don't want to spend all day fighting for scraps. We just want to generate yearly gains at a steady pace with no headaches.

That's why the "Phi Account" is such a great alternative to the stock market.

One of the best things about owning a 12% "Phi Account" is that you don't have to check on it or worry about it every day, like the stock market.

You can unplug from the worry and start taking time for other, less frustrating hobbies.

And with the extra money you could earn, you could have a lot of fun.

The time to make a choice has come.

Do you really want to leave your investments exposed to being wiped out by a computer?

Do you need to waste time with the Wall Street drama anymore?

Aren't you tired of squeaking out meager gains, only to have them taken away by taxes?

Then I urge you to please consider opening a 12% "Phi Account" today.

Right now, you could begin experiencing rock-solid, consistent gains year after year -- and you can start with as little as $500.

At this moment, that's all it will take to get an account. I have to warn you that this special bargain won't be available forever.

But, at worst, you can test out the 12% "Phi Account" with a little bit of money first and then add more once you're satisfied with the results.

I've created an instruction guide for beginners, called "How to Open Your First 12% 'Phi Account.'"

Inside, I'll explain everything you need to know and walk you through the sign-up process, step by step.

You could start earning a hassle-free 12% per year without all of the negatives of the stock market.

So what exactly is a "Phi Account"? And how does it work?

The "Phi Account" is able to make a steady 12% per year because it's invested in one unique asset.

This asset isn't like a commodity or natural resource that can be traded up and down every day. It's a rare asset, so supply never changes, but demand always grows.

That's why most experts suggest planning to hold your "Phi Account" for at least five to 10 years. The longer you hold, the higher it should go. It's not meant to be bought and sold every other day.

One company will even refund your original investment in a "Phi Account" if it hasn't gone up by a certain amount in 10 years.

That's how solid the "Phi Account's" history of gains is.

For proprietary reasons, I can't tell you exactly what this asset is... or the name of the small firm that runs the 12% "Phi Account."

Not on these pages, at least.

But I'll share all of those details and everything else you need to know about "Phi Accounts" in the instruction booklet I wrote, "How to Open Your First 12% 'Phi Account.'"

I'll tell you exactly what it is, why it's able to gain 12% per year -- and how to sign up today with just $500.

Best of all, you can have this instruction booklet on your desk in 10 minutes -- for FREE.

That's right -- every detail about the coveted 12% "Phi Account" -- free of charge.

In a moment, I'll collect your information so I can rush you this free report right away. But first, I want to share some more good news.

You see, a "Phi Account" isn't the only way you can make consistent, safe gains without the risk of owning stocks.

In fact, I've identified 27 unconventional assets that have shown a history of profits -- without touching the market.

They're the perfect places to put your savings over the next few months, even years.

Your money will be safe from the market turmoil. And you could even see impressive profits.

It certainly worked out well for Paul Stevens...

Paul Stevens' $1.2 Million Secret

Paul Stevens is a 58-year-old machinist from Lansing, Mich.

Like most individual investors, Paul has been extremely disappointed with traditional investments such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds.

In fact, he spent 20 years watching his IRA eke out pathetic returns.

In 2007, Paul decided to try something different and put his $300,000 retirement account into a unique investment I call the "V-Dash Multiplier."

(Although you may have never heard of it, the V-Dash Multiplier is available to you at this very moment.)

How did it turn out for Paul?

Three years later, in 2010, his investment in the "V-Dash Multiplier" had grown from $300,000 to $1.2 million.

"It's significantly beyond what the market could have ever dreamed of giving up," says Paul. "If you look at historical gains of 401(k)s, we're getting hundreds of times more than that."

Now, keep in mind that the V-Dash has nothing to do with stocks, bonds, real estate, options, mutual funds or ETFs, yet it has the potential to turn an ordinary investor into a millionaire in just a few short years if it's played right.

The same kind of thing happened for Mark Davis...

Mark grew up in Little Rock, Ark. After graduating from the University of Arkansas with a B.A. degree, he started working as an accountant in Memphis, Tenn.

Over 25 years, he was able to put away a sizable nest egg of about $300,000, but he was never able to grow his principal, due to stock slides and poor mutual fund performance.

"Most of my $300,000 was money I put in myself," explains Mark. "I got very little help from the stock market."

But all of that changed when Mark learned about "Prop-88." In fact, he transferred his entire retirement account into this innovative unconventional asset.

Within a relatively short period of time, Mark's $300,000 account had blossomed into a stunning $2.9 million windfall.

Yet "Prop-88" has nothing to do with the stock market...

In fact, although not one in 10,000 individual investors knows it... there's a whole universe of unique unconventional assets that put traditional stocks, bonds, mutual funds, options and ETFs to shame.

Most of these investments are totally off the grid. And at first glance, they seem completely out of reach.

That's exactly what Wall Street wants you to think. You've been brainwashed to believe traditional investments are the only way to profit.

But nothing could be further from the truth...

The fact is you can get started with as little as $200... and experience returns that can be absolutely breathtaking.

The "Bridge Technique" Nets Phyllis a Substantial Retirement Fund in Two Years!

The great thing about these unconventional assets, besides their safety from the stock market, is there is something for everyone.

If you don't like one style or tactic of investing, you can simply move to one that is more comfortable for you.

That's what Phyllis Gorman did...

Phyllis spent years investing in traditional stocks, bonds, mutual funds and even options. She never lost a lot of money, but she never made much, either.

"I had about $100,000 back in 2000... the same in 2009. Things were going nowhere."

That's when Phyllis discovered the "Bridge Technique," as I like to call it.

Like all of the other opportunities I've told you about so far, the Bridge Technique has nothing to do with traditional investment vehicles such as stocks or options.

The amazing thing about the "Bridge Technique" is that it has been in existence for roughly 5,000 years, according to CNBC.

Phyllis invested in the "Bridge Technique" and within two years realized a $450,000 net profit.

As you can see from the above examples, unconventional assets like the "Phi Account" and the "Bridge Technique" have the ability to transform your world, almost overnight.

Could they work for you? It's absolutely possible.

And you won't have to risk the impending doom in the stock market to make money.

I know I may sound like a broken record, but when you look at the returns you can bank from these unconventional wealth builders... why wouldn't you shift at least some of your retirement money from the stock market to these potentially lucrative -- and extremely safe -- alternatives?

Give our monthly communiqué, Unconventional Wealth, a risk-free try.

What is Unconventional Wealth?

Let me introduce myself -- and tell you a bit more...

Like Nothing You've Ever Seen...

My name is Aaron Gentzler.

I recently joined forces with legendary contrarian investor Bill Bonner.

Perhaps you've heard of Bill...

He founded Agora Publishing in 1979 and turned it into a global business, with offices in eight different countries.

Chances are you've read his musings on the markets in his Daily Reckoning letter...

Or maybe you've read one of his remarkably prescient books on the perils of the market -- and the benefits of thinking outside the box when it comes to your money.

One of Bill's most recent efforts, Mobs, Messiahs and Markets, was a New York Times best seller.

Together, Bill and I bring you a fresh perspective on the markets -- and a binder full of contacts around the world who are always searching for the next great opportunity outside of stocks.

Every month, we'll bring you these opportunities in Unconventional Wealth.

I can tell you right now, Unconventional Wealth is unlike anything else in the financial industry.

It is NOT a stock-picking or trading service...

And it is NOT your typical investment research newsletter...

Instead, it is a unique, practical, step-by-step, real-time education in wealth creation...

Every month, you'll receive a private letter highlighting a unique way you can put your money to work to exponentially grow your wealth.

Like the "Phi Account" Bryan Gould and Nate Soderberg use to make 12% per year or more...

Or how Paul, the 58-year-old machinist from Lansing, grew his $300,000 retirement grubstake into $1.2 million in three short years.

Or how Mark Davis used "Prop-88" to turn his retirement account into over $2.9 million.

Or how Phyllis G. got so sick and tired of watching her stock portfolio shrink she put $100,000 into the "Bridge Technique" and, two years later, netted $450,000.

Please understand: This monthly communiqué will NOT be the kind of boring drivel you'll get from Money magazine, The Wall Street Journal or your typical investment newsletter.

And it may be the exact opposite of what a broker, financial advisor or even an accountant is telling you.

But I'm confident that as soon as you read your first private letter, you'll understand why your financial future could change almost instantly.

Bill Bonner's unconventional philosophy -- and amazing ability to discover unique investments capable of making you a fortune -- is at the heart of our mission.

My job is to supplement Bill's wisdom by doing the nitty-gritty research on these unique opportunities.

We're like a sportscast crew. Bill's the color guy, there to provide wisdom and context. I'm the play-by-play guy, focusing on the nuts and bolts of any opportunity.

Although I've got a master's degree from Johns Hopkins University and I've spent six successful years writing about the markets -- that's hardly what I'm all about.

You see, my story is probably a lot like yours. I've spent years doing hard work for little pay.

I worked on a cattle farm, a road-paving crew, dug ditches, blew up rocks to build tunnels -- even worked as a librarian.

I decided to study economics and the markets after what I saw my grandfather go through.

He toiled his whole life as a milk deliveryman. For those of you of a certain age, you remember the glass bottles delivered to your door every morning. That was my grandfather.

And on his last day, he went into work and picked up a lump-sum pension check for $125,000.

I was a child, riding along with him that day, and when I asked if that was a lot of money, he said:

"It is to me."

Grandpa bought some AT&T shares with his money on the advice of a friend, and he kept the rest in savings. A decade later, his stocks had barely gone up -- and he was eating away at his savings.

That's when I realized: Why isn't there somewhere for my grandpa to put his valuable retirement money that had the safety of a bank account... but could still make him a decent profit, year after year?

That's when I hooked up with Bill Bonner and began studying unconventional assets very deeply.

The result of our labor is Unconventional Wealth.

Our goal is not to feed you the latest hot stock pick or take you in and out of investment fads.

What we do is very unique in the investment world. Instead of focusing on capturing fleeting gains, we'll show you how to build multigenerational wealth in your own lifetime.

We'll walk you through all of the ways wealthy people got to where they are. (I'll give you a hint: It wasn't from buying and selling stocks all day.)

When you get your first issue of Unconventional Wealth, you'll see just what I'm talking about.

In each communiqué, our team of wealth creation specialists will do three things:

First: We'll provide you with an overview of the economy and the markets. We'll give you a monthly scouting report of "hidden opportunities" most brokers won't even know about... and a "WATCH LIST" of potential hazards and pitfalls.

Second: We'll give you a real-time financial lesson... the kind of financial education that is completely off the grid... the kind I've been telling you about in this letter.

I should point out that because of the unique and totally unconventional nature of these monthly lessons, they are best delivered on a staggered basis so you can absorb the information incrementally and in smaller doses.

As you will see, each of these lessons is powerful. Remarkably so. In fact, I believe you will make a quantum leap in your ability to create wealth... beginning with your very first lesson.

Of course, that will be only the start... because... when these lessons are allowed to build on each other... month after month... the results are breathtaking.

Third: Based on current economic conditions and the monthly lesson, I'll provide you with specific, actionable instructions you can start using immediately to build your own fortune.

And that's just a small part of your membership.

Here's another very special gift I'll send you FREE, just for trying Unconventional Wealth.

Private Access to Members-Only Website

As a member of Unconventional Wealth, you'll also get private access to our members-only website, with investment updates, special investment research articles and unlimited access to all of the private, real-time financial secrets we provide.

The great part is that we have contacts all over the world who provide information you simply can't get anywhere else.

The members-only website gives us a way to get crucial information to you on a timely basis.

Let me summarize everything you get when you agree to try Unconventional Wealth:

  • Free Report: "How to Open Your First 12% 'Phi Account'"

  • Free Report: "My Private and Personal Collection of 27 Alternative Investment Opportunities"

  • Monthly Private Wealth Communiqués

  • Private Access to Members-Only Website

These free gifts come chock full of valuable moneymaking information -- information that could be worth thousands of dollars to you.

But don't worry... A year's subscription will cost you far less than that.

Before I tell you how shockingly low the price is, let me show you one other crucial benefit to being an Unconventional Wealth subscriber.

Take Three Months to Try It -- No Pressure

When you sign up for Unconventional Wealth, we'll give you 90 days to test out the service -- at no risk to you.

During the first three months, you'll get three new moneymaking issues. You'll get weekly updates on new alternative opportunities, and you'll have access to the members-only website -- and a chance to peruse your FREE reports at your leisure.

If, during those first 90 days, you find you're not satisfied with Unconventional Wealth for any reason at all, you can simply call or email our customer service team and cancel your subscription.

We'll give you a full refund, no questions asked.

And we'll let you keep everything you received in the first 90 days -- at no charge. It's our way of saying thank you for giving Unconventional Wealth a try.

Even if you decide you want to cancel beyond the first 90 days, we'll refund you the pro-rated remainder of your subscription.

The 90-day money-back guarantee is to show you we operate with integrity and transparency -- unlike our government or Wall Street.

When you sign up today, you'll also receive my two free reports, "How to Open Your First 12% 'Phi Account'" and "My Private Collection of 27 Alternative Investment Opportunities."

Both reports outline a plethora of ways you can get rich outside of the stock market.

With your year's subscription, you'll get access to my members-only website. And you'll receive 12 issues of Unconventional Wealth, each with a powerful new wealth-building lesson.

You'll also have 90 days to cancel your subscription and receive a full refund.

So how much will all of this cost you?

Normally, Unconventional Wealth costs $129 for 12 months...

But if you subscribe today, I'll give you a very special offer:

Six Months of Unconventional Wealth -- FOR FREE

Subscribe today, and you'll pay just $49 for a full year's subscription of Unconventional Wealth.

That's like getting six months -- for FREE.

You'll still get all of the same great benefits as subscribers who paid full price. Plus, you'll get the two free reports I mentioned above rushed to your inbox.

You've seen the moneymaking power of these unconventional assets and how they worked out for Bryan Gould, Nate Soderberg, Phyllis Gorman and Paul Stevens.

Pretty soon, these may be the only safe places for your money in the world. And they certainly will be the only places where you could still see double-digit returns every year.

Remember, the largest tax hike in U.S. history has just taken effect. It's causing a lot of pain in the markets, specifically for people who own high-yielding blue chips.

You need to protect your money right away. And find an alternative to this stock market carnage.

For just $49 -- less than one cup of coffee per month for the next year -- I'll help guide you through the chaos.

And I'll give you a head start on beating the crowds and saving your money in my two free reports:

  • "How to Open Your First 12% 'Phi Account'"

  • "My Private Collection of 27 Alternative Investment Opportunities."

You don't have much time to hesitate. In the next few weeks, the stock market could sink lower and lower.

Any investment you have tied to stocks, like a 401(k), IRA or mutual fund account, could be destroyed.

Take advantage of my 90-day money-back guarantee. Give Unconventional Wealth a test-drive today.

No matter what you decide, these free reports are yours to keep. They could be the saving grace for your retirement.

Things could get very bumpy over the next few months. It might help to have more than 100 years of investing experience on your side.

Join the Unconventional Wealth team today.

Sincerely,

Signature, Aaron Gentzler
