We're not going out on a limb here stating that it was a rough month for most people. That's the reality. Stocks posted their worst January since 2009.

  • The S&P 500? Down -5.1%

  • Dow Industrials? Down -5.5%

  • Nasdaq? Down -7.9%


Not so for our Real-Time Alerts subscribers. In fact, this past month was one of the best (absolute and relative) months in RTA history.
