If you are 50+ years of age, you don't have time for wild movements in the stock market that could delay or destroy your retirement. No one wants to run out of money, and we all want to live the lifestyle we envision. But, the old buy-and-hope strategy, which holds a basket of assets during market corrections, is risky and inefficient at best. Imagine if you could sell your investments as they started to top. Then, revest the money into different assets rising in value, and never have to hold falling positions again. By owning only assets rising in value, you can avoid multi-year drawdowns, reduce financial stress, and achieve an uncompromised retirement. Introducing CGS, Consistent Growth Strategy, where some see random price movements, we see investing signals--everywhere. Signals from stocks, bonds, commodities, and currencies that we convert into actionable investing signals.

So, why not diversify with a portfolio solution that is a proven hedge (double-digit returns in 2022) for stock market exposure?
