Are you a pessimist?
Are you uncomfortable with risk?
Does confronting the unknown make your palms sweat and your heart race?
Well, rest assured, you’re not alone.
Many people feel exactly the same way you do — and it’s totally natural to have a negativity bias.
It’s about biology. It’s about evolution. It’s about history.

Your negativity bias is wired into your DNA. It dates all the way back to the beginning of human civilisation. Back to the days when we were hunter-gatherers:
- We lacked tools. We lacked electricity. We lacked medicine.
- Our average life expectancy in the Stone Age was only around 25. In fact, many children died in their first four years of life. How horrible.
- So it’s no wonder that we humans became risk-averse. We dared not venture too far out beyond our immediate domain. We feared the hostile terrain that stretched out into the horizon. We feared the predators that lay in wait in the darkness.
- Life was nasty. Life was brutal. Life was short. And for lack of a better option, we leaned desperately into fear and superstition. Because that’s all we could do, given our limited knowledge and limited resources.
Now, let’s fast-forward to the modern era that we live in. The 21st century. So much has changed for humanity:
- These days, we have sophisticated technology. We cross borders at will. We have conquered the darkness. And our average life expectancies are well over 70.
- But…does this mean that we are braver than our ancestors were? Are we more courageous? Sadly, the short answer is this: not really.
- That negativity bias that we have — so primal and so integral to the ancient human experience — still has an iron grip on our psyche, suffocating us at inconvenient times.
The mainstream media understands this all too well. And it goes out of its way to feed our negativity. To amplify it. To enlarge it:
- Here’s the perfect example. Back in 1999, Barron’s — one of the most respected financial publications in America — delivered a story with a hard-hitting headline. It was almost certainly engineered to generate controversy and grab eyeballs.
- They criticised Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon [NASDAQ:AMZN]. They mocked his business model. They said it was ‘silly’ and doomed to fail.
…that didn’t age well, did it?
Shockingly, the so-called experts got it very, very wrong. And any investor who followed their misguided advice would have lost out on a great deal of wealth:
- In fact, if you had invested $100,000 in Amazon in 1999, it would be worth over $3.8 million today. That’s an increase of over 3,000%. Extraordinary growth. Not bad for a business model once labelled as ‘silly’.
- Measured by market cap, Amazon is the fifth-largest global company today — valued at over $1 trillion.
- Jeff Bezos is currently the third-richest man in the world — valued at over $125 billion.
Now, of course, it’s not just the American press with a history of making dumb predictions. Across the Atlantic, the British press can also lay claim to their share of stupidity as well:
- In 2000, the Daily Mail — a newspaper with the highest circulation in the UK — went to print with a critical story on the future of the internet.
- They said that the internet was just a ‘passing fad’. They described the future of online shopping as ‘limited’.
- They declared that ‘millions’ of British users had already given up on the internet and logged off. So the conclusion was this: the internet would die a natural death, and it would not have any significant impact on modern life.
…what a spectacular miscalculation.
You’re starting to see a pattern here, don’t you? Crystal balls that don’t age well? Predictions that prove to be ill-informed in hindsight?
- In the eternal words of John Kenneth Galbraith: ‘There are two kinds of forecasters: those who don’t know, and those who don’t know they don’t know.’
- Indeed, the mainstream media is filled with forecasters with a terrible track record. They have done an abysmal job in predicting the numbers that really matter — property prices, interest rates, the role of technology, and of course, the direction of the stock market.
So…for the sake of your long-term financial security…I urge you to urgently rethink all the news headlines that you’ve been reading lately:
- We strongly believe the mainstream media has been misleading you about the actual conditions in the market.
- As contrarian investors, we see something dramatically different — the invisible hand that guides the market is already shifting gears, even as we speak.
Watch out. The American stock market has just hit a very important milestone, known as the January Indicator Trifecta. We see 3 powerful buttons being activated at the same time. Here’s why you should care:

- The sequence goes like this — we experienced a stock market rally for the final five trading days of 2022, as well as the first two trading days of 2023. We also experienced a gain over the first five trading days of 2023. And, finally, we had a rally for the entire month of January 2023.
- These seasonal indicators suggest there’s an 88% chance that the market’s direction may be positive for the rest of the year.
