Goldman Sachs doesn’t know… Bank of America doesn’t know… Morningstar doesn’t know… but Marc Chaikin believes he does. He called the bottom in 2020, just 24 hours before the fastest bull market in history. Now, Marc has spotted the NEXT market bottom – and he’s sounding the alarm. Plus, he’s sharing the names of what he says will be the best- and worst-performing stocks of 2023.

What if It Doesn’t Get Better?
By Mason Sexton, Editor, New Paradigm Research
In the spring and fall of 2021, something very strange happened…
Inflation – the scourge of the 1970s – began rising to alarming levels.. For many investors, this was very novel. They had never invested in a high-inflation environment.
“Not to worry,” assured the men in charge. Inflation was “transitory” and would level off soon. It will get better, you were told.
In the first two quarters of 2022, the U.S. GDP experienced negative growth, the traditional definition of a recession. But you are told – by the Fed, the media, and the president – that your eyes deceive you. It’s not really a recession. And besides, things will get better…
The market began a precipitous fall that same year. It was the worst year in a decade for stocks. It was the worst year ever for U.S. Treasurys. But surely, things will get better.
Then the banks began to fail…
In the span of two months, three American banks – with combined assets close to $550 billion – closed their doors. We’re only five months into the year, and already the bank failures have surpassed 2008 in terms of total assets.
But the chair of the Federal Reserve assures you that “the U.S. banking system is sound and resilient.” Once again, please don’t worry. Things will get better…
But let us consider a radical possibility: What if it doesn’t?
What if the worst is yet to come?
What if – as I saw during the first 10 years of my career in the early 1970s and ‘80s – financial markets move stubbornly sideways (or down, in real terms) for a decade or more?
Even worse, what if the system – propped up by extraordinary amounts of debt, low rates, and magical thinking – has finally found its limit?
What would you do in that situation?
These are the questions I would ask you to consider today.
I believe something is coming that few of us have ever seen in our lifetimes. And I predict it will arrive in the next eight weeks. Many investors will be lucky to break even. I suspect many will be utterly wiped out in the years ahead. A lucky few will see this event coming and position themselves for extraordinary returns.
What investors do in the weeks ahead could determine the trajectory of their portfolios – and retirement – for years to come.
Let me show you what I mean…

The world-renowned professor who called the 2008 and 2020 crashes months in advance says what’s coming will impact 20 times MORE money than the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and First Republic Bank COMBINED. He’s also giving away the name and ticker of a popular stock he believes could go BANKRUPT this summer.
What ’87 Felt Like
My name is Mason Sexton. After graduating from Harvard Business School in 1972, I began a career on Wall Street.
I spent three years in the Corporate Finance Department of Morgan Stanley. I did a stint with Salomon Brothers in the Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) Department. Then, I headed the Sales and Research Department of Mabon, Nugent & Company.
In 1984, I founded Harmonic Research, where we specialized in precise market timing. And when I say “precise,” I mean down to the day or even hour. I’m happy to report I was named a “Top 10 Timer” by Timer Digest – a publication that tracked analysts’ market timing – for 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1992, 1993, and 1994 when I made the cover.
It was during my time with Harmonic Research that I experienced the crash of ’87. Most don’t remember, but 1987 was an incredibly good year for stocks… until it wasn’t.
In my Long-Term Forecast 1985-1992, published in early 1985, I predicted that “in 1987 the stock market will enjoy its biggest rally in history.” The Dow opened the year at 1,908 points. At the peak, two months before the crash, it was at 2,722 points.
It is difficult for those that did not live through that period to understand the relief that investors felt. After more than a decade of negative real returns, here appeared a genuine rally that would lift investors out of the doldrums of the “stagflationary” late ‘70s and early ‘80s. Things were finally better!
But the worst was yet to come…
Interviewed on August 14, 1987, on CNN I said:
“What we think will happen is that we’ll get an important top somewhere around August 24th or 25th.[…]
If I had to guess the final top, it would be the first or second week of October. When I say ‘the final top,’ that would precede a correction of 15 to 20% ‘minimum’ in the [Dow].”
As it happens, the Dow Jones topped out at 2,722 precisely on August 25 of that year. It was the all-time high for 1987. And it was a level that the Dow would not see again until two years later in August of 1989.
I’m sure many of us remember what happened next…
On Monday, October 19, the Dow Jones collapsed by 508 points, or 22.6%. It was, and remains, the worst one-day drop for the index in percentage terms. Black Monday had arrived.
Of course, it’s one thing to predict a crash. It’s quite another to tell investors what to do about it. As it happens, I did that too.
On October 2, 1987, I advised clients of Harmonic Research “to sell all stocks.” Six days later on FNN (the precursor to CNBC), I advised investors to “Buy puts on the S&P index… Short IBM, GM, PA, XON, and CHV.”
Later, I had clients tell me that they had made incredible fortunes – turning $100,000 into more than $13 million – by following this forecast.
Why do I retell this story?
— RECOMMENDED —
Wall Street titan Marc Chaikin predicted February’s sell-off… AND the recent run on banks way back in November. Now, he’s sounding the alarm on what’s coming next for the stock market… “Folks are about to do some very dangerous things with their money in the coming weeks, unless they understand what’s coming next.”
The Decision Is Yours
I share it to illustrate that there are rare moments in history when one decision can have momentous implications. In 1987, the decision was to prepare for the crash or be wiped out by it. Even legendary trader George Soros wound up in the latter category. He is reported to have lost $800 million in a matter of days back in ’87.
I believe investors are faced with a similar decision today. But the consequences could be far more severe than they were during Black Monday.
As I said, I believe something is set to hit markets starting in the next eight weeks. Many are unprepared for this. As I said at the top, you are assured at every turn not to panic. Things will get better.
But as I’ve said before, humans have a natural intuition for danger. Does it feel like things are okay? Does it feel like things are getting better? If we were to be very honest with ourselves, we would know the answer.
But what precisely is coming? And how should investors prepare?
