Most People in the US Missed Out on this by Simon Black

Most People In The US Missed Out On This

Several months ago, the voters of the United Kingdom chose to walk away from the European Union.

They called it “Brexit”. And it rocked the world.

The entire establishment– banks, businesses, media, politicians, celebrities– had been pushing the British people to remain in the European Union.

And all the so-called experts scared the bejeezus out of voters with predictions of doom and gloom consequences should Britain leave the EU.

All-out panic ensued in financial markets when the Brexit results were announced.

And Britain’s FTSE stock index tanked when trading commenced the following morning.

But then something interesting happened.

Investors realized rather quickly that the world hadn’t come to an end. British companies hadn’t simply closed up shop and stopped operating.

Brexit or not, British Airways and EasyJet would keep flying. Royal Dutch Shell and British Petroleum would keep pumping oil and gas.

So within a matter of days, British stocks rebounded and surpassed their pre-Brexit vote levels.

The same thing happened a few weeks ago here in Thailand.

News that the Thai King was on his deathbed rocked local financial markets.

Thai stocks began a steep selloff as investors, both foreign and local, dumped their assets in the face of so much uncertainty.

The Thai King had been a fixture in the country for so many years that there’s hardly a single investor alive who can remember a time without him.

The King passed away a few days later. But once again, investors were surprised to find that the world didn’t come to an end.

Thailand didn’t plunge into chaos. Thai companies kept operating. Everything was OK.

And within a matter of hours, Thai stock prices rebounded.

Naturally the same thing happened with the US presidential election.

There were countless pundits in financial media predicting that a Trump victory would cause a major decline in US stocks.

This chorus grew so loud that it eventually became a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Late into Tuesday night’s election coverage when it became clear that Trump was the front-runner, US stock futures collapsed.

Of course, US stock markets were closed at the time; it was well after midnight in the US, and markets wouldn’t open for at least another 8 hours.

But here in Asia, financial markets were absolutely open for business; it was around 1pm local time when it became clear that Trump was going to win.

Now, even though US stocks are obviously traded primarily in US stock exchanges, there are a number of ways to buy and sell US companies in overseas markets.

It’s commonplace for major companies to have secondary stock listings on a foreign exchange (say, London, Frankfurt, or Hong Kong).

So even when US markets are closed, investors can still buy and sell shares of large companies– as long as they have access to trade in those foreign stock markets.

That’s what I did. It was early in the afternoon, and I bought shares of an ETF listed in Hong Kong that tracks the US S&P 500 index.

At the time, US stock futures were down by roughly 5%.

And while I don’t normally like ETFs, I was making a very short-term bet that the Trump victory chaos would be very short-lived, just like Brexit and the Thai King.

US markets opened eight hours later. But by then, the panic had already started to calm.

Despite absurd predictions by faux-experts like Paul Krugman who said that US markets would “never” recover, the world didn’t come to an end.

As I wrote yesterday, investors quickly realized that nothing had fundamentally changed.

Disney is still making movies. Star Wars is still going to be released. Captain America and Thor are still going to battle aliens.

Mark Zuckerberg is still peddling your personal information to the highest bidder.

Monsanto is still genetically modifying your food.

US stock prices began to recover from the Trump shock within minutes of the market opening.

I had already made my investment in the S&P 500 ETF eight hours earlier when the index was still down 5%.

So when stock prices came roaring back, I made a very quick profit.

But most US-based investors who only trade US-listed investments missed out on this opportunity; by the time the US market opened and they were able to buy, prices were already moving higher.

This is a pretty clear example of one of the regular themes of this letter.
