George Muzea is both an investor and a stock market advisor. In any given month, he will be paid $100,000- for one hour of consultation by an investor for his advice on the stock market. He advises over 100 such investor firms.

In any given week, he will be called upon to help such firms direct upwards of a Trillion dollars (yes, you read that rightone Trillion dollars) of investor assets How's that for stress?

So, how does George Muzea sleep? I ask that because any percentage of a trillion dollars would keep me wide-eyed through the night. Every night.

I know George Muzea. I am told he sleeps well. Investor or not, why wouldn't he? Given his track record as an investor advisor to men like George Soros and Stanley Druckenmiller, investor stress doesn't appear to be a problem.

Is it due to the fact that he is a natural investor? You know the kind, extremely lucky. They fall into sewers and come up with gold watches on both wrists. Actually the answer is a resounding no.

As an investor and advisor, George Muzea has a brilliant system which any investor, trader, portfolio manageror just about any professional who wants to protect his portfolio from his investment advisorcan learn. If I as an options trader can learn and apply it, so can any investor.

By the way, I sleep better now.

It's not Brain surgery (I'm quoting George Muzea here very exactly)Any investor can learn it. Since it's not brain surgery the next question for any investor is a natural: Does it workand what has this to do with stress?

Play close attention. It's not brain surgeryand it sure beats open heart surgery (just in case investor stress is a problem for you).

Does Stress Inhibit Performance?

In other words, as an investor, are you losing money because of stress? Maybe. To answer that question, we have to answer the first one above. Namely, Does stress inhibit performance? Absolutely. Countless medical studies have conclusively shown performance in any field to be compromised by stress.

Stress management has grown up around us as almost a science. But, what about the world of the investor? Stock and options traders are in occupations known for stressconstant stress.

But, anyone who worries about his portfolio, his or her retirement, has stress to worry about too. It is not very comforting to know that most stock advisors, newsletter writers, and media advisors lose money for their clients, readers, and listeners (stress again).

The tragedy surrounding investor Arthur Kane is worth a moment's reflection (though it is not the reason for this article). His actions are a reminder that stress plays out every day in the world of the investorjust not to the degree it did with Kane. But, stress does play a huge role in investor trading.

Do you recall Arthur Kane? He was an investor who lived in Miami. As an investor he did what many investors do, he bought stock on margin (stress!) until he was deep in debt (stress again). On Black Monday, October 19, 1987 the Dow dropped 22.6% (stress in a big way).

Kane was so distraught when the stock hit bottom that day, he walked into a Merrill Lynch office and opened fire, killing one person and paralyzing anotherbefore he committed suicide.

If he had just waited one more daythe stock market turned around and the world of the investor was back on track.

Just one more day. You see, his tragedy plays out all the timejust not to that extreme.

How many of us succumb to market stress and sell out our position because it is hitting bottom and the investor world around is frightened? Come onfess up. Stress often empties wallets just as well as market direction.

In Contrast, George Muzea Has His Own Stress System

I call it his stress system. He doesn't. He has nicknamed it the MagicT. It has worked for 30 yearswhich is why the investor world pays him so well for his advice.

In 1987 (May, 1987, to be exact), his MagicT turned negative. George Muzea had all of his clients out of their positions long before Black Monday stressed Arthur Kane.

If you are a stock trader, stock broker, money manager, financial advisor, retirement specialist or a person who has built up a portfolio and doesn't like taking lossesnote the following (for the relief of stress and making money).

George called all of his investor clients 18 months before Enron hit the papersto advise them there was a severe problem with Enron. He didn't know anything about what was happening inside Enronexcept he knew how to read the Insiders of publicly traded companies (there are 60,000 of them defined by the Security and Exchange Commission in the United States.).

He read them like the proverbial bookwithout stress. Investors take note.

Imagine, if you had had substantial Enron holdings in your portfolio. Wouldn't you have wanted to be able to go to the Internet, look on a screen and immediately call your portfolio manager and order a sell (or, as one of the investor clients of George Muzea did) short the position (and he made a lot of money)?

While investors like Mr. Kane are in a panic near the bottom of market cycles, George Muzea reads the Insiders of companies and the depressed news and analystsand is usually buying. Yes. Buying (normally). (Learn why with his free course.)

Nearing the top of cycles, when the world is euphoric, the Insiders are usually sellingand so is George Muzea and his investor clientele (normally, again). No whipsaws. No panic selling. No Enron. No Black Monday surprises. No stress. How does he do it? will explain what you should know.
