Where Is The Stock Market Headed? Let's Ask The World's Best Market Forecaster
For a more comprehensive look at Stathis track record, see here and here.
Do you know of anyone who warned about the possibility of Dow 6200 just months before the collapse began, who also told the public to start buying at the bottom??
This shows Stathis is not an extremist, nor is he a doom and gloomer with a sales pitch, unlike the guys you see and read in the financial media.
Stathis knows WHEN TO SHIFT GEARS because he is a REAL Analyst and strategist, NOT A SALESMAN like the clowns plastered all over the media.
Stathis is the real deal and his track record proves it.
Already, with just these few forecasts, you aren't likely to find anyone else who can match his track record.
Here are just a few predictions made by Mike Stathis in this book.
America’s Financial Apocalypse remains as the most accurate, comprehensive and insightful book predicting a depression for the U.S. even nearly 6 years after it was first published in late 2006.
Others feel the need to release 2.0 versions of their book because they missed so much and got so many things wrong the first time.
Some financial professionals spend all of their time marketing. Others spend all of their time doing research. In the end, the track record is the only thing that matters.
The following is only a PARTIAL LIST of accurate forecasts and insights from America's Financial Apocalypse (2006).
Because we do not have the time to go through the book and list more, if you feel there are some important additions to this list, please email us with your entry and page number.

You will not find any other professional even attempt to forecast and analyze so many things.
The amazing thing is that Stathis’ success rate is so high.
Ask yourself what the perpetual doomer and gold pumper clowns have to say.
These guys are extremists who are only geared to sell you fear and greed.
The real pros know when to reverse directions.
The real pros also know when you should just stay out of the market altogether.
They also know that you need to focus on risk management instead of a buy-and-hold strategy like others who have been labeled experts by the financial media.
Have a look at what Stathis has to say about some of these so-called experts.
They don't dare call him out because they know well they know he has no agendas, and his insights are well beyond theirs.
Stathis does research and analysis for a living. He doesn't spend his time marketing to sheep. Never forget that.
The so-called experts spend their entire day blogging or being interviewed on TV.
Real experts don't do that; not if they want to form an accurate track record. They are either doing research, or advising clients.
The facts are clear. You will NEVER find a real expert on TV.
If you did, why can't you make money following what they say? Think about it.
The financial media gets paid (via selling commercials) by the financial industry, so whose best interests do you think the media represents?
Yours or those of the financial industry?
These guys you see on TV are marketers not investment experts. That is why they have sheep (viewers) as customers.
Stathis advises FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS.
That means he gets paid to be right.
Salesmen get paid regardless because they market to the sheep.
November 2005 Warning PLUS Book Excerpts
Mike Stathis is prepared to go up against ANY of the media's "experts" who wish to challenge his track record or his views (as long as the venue is neutral, the host/moderator is neutral, it is a live broadcast and each is given equal time).
Don't expect to see such a showdown.
Weaker opponents always know it's best to retreat rather than confront a much stronger opponent.
Don't be fooled by America's propaganda machine.
RESEARCH the track records of these guys and you will see for yourself.
STOP BEING TAKEN FOR A FOOL.
Tune out the media before you lose even more money.
Align yourself with the world's leading expert on the economic collapse.
