Three weeks into the new year and already the stock market has been hit with plenty of headlines. Futures swung around wildly overnight when the U.S. and Iran traded missile strikes in Iraq… and it’s happening again with a new virus out of China called the coronavirus.
This is a good example of why you need more than just stocks in your portfolio.
Days after hitting new highs, the S&P 500 is up just 2.7% for the year so far. But so is gold, which usually gets people’s interest in times of trouble.
Meanwhile, bitcoin is up 20%. That’s better than gold did in all of 2019.
And frankly, in the world of cryptocurrencies, that performance is nothing.
Take a look at this chart comparing bitcoin’s recent move to some other cryptocurrencies, known as altcoins:
Bitcoin Cash (the red line) gained 67%.
Zcash (the orange line) climbed 86%.
And Dash (the blue line) was up an unbelievable 160%!
I showed you a similar chart just the other day, and those returns have just kept climbing. Over the long term, we will certainly see some volatility, but I’d urge you to think of the sell-offs as a chance to catch up on the profits in an incredibly powerful long-term investment.
It’s an investment you really cannot afford to miss.
Some of these altcoins are the best way to do that. I’m talking about the ones with the smartest team behind them, in the right industry, with decent liquidity and favorable risk-to-reward characteristics. That’s what my MAG System is designed to detect.
With new altcoins coming online all the time, the important thing to keep in mind is this: When you invest in cryptocurrencies, you’re really investing in software – one that’s going to revolutionize transactions of all kinds: the blockchain.
When you change your perspective on altcoins, you realize they are not “fantasy internet money”… they are investments in systems that make our lives easier, more productive, and more efficient.
It’s just like backing Microsoft (MSFT) in the early days. It’s just like backing Alphabet (GOOGL) or Uber (UBER) or Oracle (ORCL) in the early days.
When you buy an altcoin, you are essentially acting as a venture capitalist.
You are funding small startup companies that are trying to unseat entrenched, inefficient models and companies that gouge customers.
That’s the heart of my new project, Matt McCall’s Ultimate Crypto.
Our very first issue comes out next week – on Tuesday, January 28. In the meantime, to get you ready for the six buying opportunities I just mentioned, you can watch my free presentation, 2020 Crypto Millionaire Summit.
You’ve probably heard me mention it in recent MoneyWire articles – but if you haven’t caught the replay yet, go ahead and do so now.
Investors in bitcoin are probably feeling pretty good right now. They can tell all the doubters… say what you want, but 20% gains in three weeks – and hundreds or thousands in the long term – tell you all you need to know about the power of cryptocurrencies.
And, don’t forget, those gains can be multiplied with altcoins… as long as you’ve got the right ones. That’s what the MAG System and my 2020 Crypto Millionaire Summit is all about.

huge investment opportunities right now:
The car as we know it is on the verge of a transformative change not seen since Karl Benz invented it nearly 135 years ago. In fact, the whole transportation sector is now poised for its version of 2.0.
I’m not exaggerating when I say this will lead to trillions of dollars in money sloshing around in the coming decades. What is coming will create one of the five biggest investment opportunities you’ll ever see in your life, no matter when you were born. Learn more here.
Marijuana has been outlawed most everywhere for decades… but now a wave of legalization is starting to sweep the world. This will create massive new markets and massive stock market winners. Learn more here.
The next big breakthrough in battery technology is an innovation that will have multi-trillion-dollar economic implications. I can tell you this mega innovation isn’t a matter of “if,” it’s a matter of “when,” and I believe it will go down as one of the greatest inventions of the 21st century.
Those on the right side of this innovation stand to build incredible wealth… just like people did from the creation of the internet and the smartphone. Think of this as your “field guide” for profiting from the next big battery breakthrough. Learn more here.
