The Model That Profits in Both Bear and Bull Markets Alike!


The BigShort is the only short selling strategy with a proven track record of high profits in both bear and bull markets. Many major analysts and hedge fund managers are warning of an imminent crash, reminiscent of 2008, and for good reasons – the market is now more overvalued than ever before. The BigShort uses TipRanks’ award winning technology, which is employed by top hedge funds and million investors around the world. In just two years this short selling strategy doubled its initial value, and we expect this number to double again if current market conditions continue. The BigShort provides subscribers with the best short selling opportunity identified by our algorithms, and provides daily updates on the status of the call. (view example).

Short selling presents the investor with an opportunity to make extremely high profits in declining or neutral markets, and even small gains in rising markets. Short selling is a tool generally used by more sophisticated investors and advanced traders, but with the BigShort anyone can utilize this powerful option and profit from it.

Markets tend to react to bad news a lot faster, and in a much more aggressive manner than positive news. While large corporations can, and sometimes will, short-sell a stock and then release a negative report, we discovered small bloggers can achieve a similar effect.

With markets reaching all-time highs and PE ratios at an unsustainable level the market is well poised for a strong sell-off. But by quickly identifying negative publications in stocks which meet all sell of criteria, we can capitalize on the short term sell off.

With access to the most extensive datasets provided by TipRanks, we are able to use advanced analytical algorithms to break down market sentiment from private investors, funds, analysts, insiders and professionals. We aggregate all the data to pick the best stock to sell short, and provide you with a daily update. The strategy proved reliable enough to show profit even in a bull market, which is a win-win.

On average, our stock pick changes just once every three days, meaning the strategy is very suitable for both advanced and novice investors. Short selling does involve a high level of risk; please be sure you are well-informed before doing so. The reccomended short-selling ideas are a great way to hedge your portfolios risk, but should not be used as the primary portfolio holdings.
