It was just an ordinary trade… but it would quickly go on to be the biggest trade of my career.
It all started as a normal $20 million order for 1 million shares – in one day. I never would’ve dreamed of what it would become…
In 2010, I was the head of my trading desk at Cantor Fitzgerald. And a friend from another big bank called me to buy some stock for a big client. Let’s call it “KDQ”…
My firm matched big institutional buyers with sellers. So in a few minutes, I found a seller and offered my friend 100,000 shares (about $2 million worth). He bought it instantly.
“Do you have any more?” he asked.
By the end of the day, I sold him 1 million shares of KDQ – which was worth about $20 million.
And the next day, I sold him another 1 million shares of KDQ. By then, the price was clearly lifting.
The same thing happened the third day. Another 1 million shares; another lift in the price. And then again on the fourth day…
After about a month, I’d mopped up and sold him every share of KDQ that I could find – about 20 million shares (worth over $500 million).
At that point, the stock had risen 70%. It had climbed so much that it was making headlines on CNBC.
A few days later, I finally found out who the buyer was: a $20 billion hedge fund. In total, it acquired more than 15% of KDQ by buying 50 million shares through me and my competitors.
That’s when I knew this was something special…
Because imagine how much you could’ve made if you’d bought KDQ before the hedge fund completed its full order.
If you’d bought KDQ on the day of the very first order, you could’ve turned $10,000 into $17,000 in just four weeks.
I’m telling you this story because it’s the secret to profiting off of Wall Street’s moves… by letting them lead you to the big moneymaking stocks.
The Billionaire Bump
I’ll let you in on something…
Some people in dark rooms on Wall Street know about huge trades like KDQ before they happen. And they profit from them. It’s just a fact.
But if you’re experienced and watch carefully, you can detect early signals when these institutions get started early on, too.
This massive order and others that I’ve handled throughout my career taught me how to recognize these giant trades.
You see, there’s a key difference between when big institutions buy stock and when you or I buy stock.
When we want to buy, we open our brokerage account, click “buy,” and move on with our day. The entire process takes a minute or two. But when big players want to buy 50 million shares, they have to do so over several days.
The first day, they’ll rush to grab a chunk of stock, because they know they’ll move the price higher. They try to “front-load” their orders in the beginning to get better prices.
When this type of buying begins, you can jump in while the “big money” continues buying for days, lifting the stock higher.
I call this phenomenon the “billionaire bump.”
So wouldn’t it be great to get a legitimate “heads up” when the big money was stepping in to buy a stock, so you could grab that stock yourself before it starts to soar?
Well, I designed a system to do just that…
How to Get a Boost from the Billionaire Bump
To follow the big money, I created an “unbeatable” stock-picking system to clue me in on what stocks big-money institutions are targeting.
I used my experience from nearly two decades at prestigious Wall Street firms – regularly trading more than $1 billion worth of stock for major clients – to make sure it’s highly accurate, comprehensive, and effective.
It scans nearly 5,500 stocks every day, using algorithms to rank each one for strength.
And it’s paid off for my Palm Beach Trader readers.
My system has identified companies like The Trade Desk (TTD) and SolarEdge Technologies (SEDG) for my Palm Beach Trader subscribers. After taking their original investments off the table, they’re still up about 354%, and 173%, respectively.
But here’s the thing: My unbeatable system doesn’t just look at individual stocks. It can track big-money buying and selling in the broad market, too.
And we can use that edge to our advantage…
Follow the Big Money
By looking at how the big money is flowing in and out of the market, we can prepare ourselves for the next billionaire bump.
And right now, my system says big money is heading into health care and tech stocks.
Take a look at the chart below of Invesco QQQ…
The index tracks tech and health care stocks. And since my system alerted me to big-money buying in tech stocks in April 2020, it’s up 50%. That’s the power of big-money buying.
Remember, we let the big money lead us to profits. And right now, it’s still flowing into these two sectors. So if you want exposure to this trend, consider QQQ.
But if you really want to make money from the “billionaire bump,” I encourage you to watch my new presentation right here.
I’ll show you why this phenomenon is guaranteed to happen… And why it can send certain stocks soaring 10x, 100x, even 1,000x.
Now, this billionaire bump only comes during certain times of the year. And we can see the next one any day now. So don’t hesitate. Click here to learn how you can profit from the billionaire bump.
Patience and process!
