Is this a new bear market? Can you use this news in your marketing to help your prospects protect their savings? JT
"Sell everything."That harrowing advice is from The Royal Bank of Scotland, which has warned of a "cataclysmic year" ahead for markets and advised clients to head for the exit. Do not wait. Do not pass go.
"Sell everything except high quality bonds," warned Andrew Roberts in a note this week.
He said the bank's red flags for 2016 -- falling oil, volatility in China, shrinking world trade, rising debt, weak corporate loans and deflation -- had all been seen in just the first week of trading.
"We think investors should be afraid," he said.

Morgan Stanley warned this week that oil could touch $20 a barrel. RBS says if it falls below $30, then $16 is on the horizon.
The world is in a global recession, Roberts wrote. This terrible cocktail means investors should now be thinking about getting a "return of capital, not return on capital."

Ok Monty Python, perhaps this program is not really for the lazy agent — instead, it's for you if you want to work smart.
If you are like most insurance agents and financial advisors, the perpetual need for new client acquisition and prospecting is the bane of your professional existence. You begin each new day with an empty pipeline and the need to attract new prospects...but how?
Prospecting can be a daily grind, and your quest for a system to generate a consistent stream of qualified prospects is an unrealized dream that you (along with most agents) continue to chase, hopping from one IMO and marketing program to the next - much like the comical and perilous search depicted in the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. With each new marketing failure you plod onward like the Black Knight admitting to only suffering "a mere flesh wound" — despite losing a limb (a pile of cash) in the process.
What if there was a Marketing Holy Grail? Where once it's set up, your prospecting works on autopilot, without risk of another flesh wound? Imagine a marketing system where you can sit and wait for the phone to ring and each time it rings you find yourself talking to an interested prospect looking to work with you! And it did not cost you a single penny!
You might be asking "What is this all about?". It's about a system that can help you to rapidly build a client base with the least amount of expense and effort possible called The Accelerator.
I created the Quantum Marketing System to help agents like you grow your business exponentially using the principles of Positive Leverage... I created The Accelerator for doing it even faster!
For many agents one of the best part of The Accelerator is that it's something you can get up and running quickly... and by quickly, I mean as little as 2 weeks or less. Depending on your effort, you can work only 2-10 hours per month and still write 10-20+ policies per month. (Much more if you want to work more.)
Let me ask you a question: Do you think it's easier to sell to a perfect stranger or an existing client? We both know the answer to that question - The Accelerator makes the process of acquiring clients almost automatic...so you can sell high value products or services later.
With this one of a kind exclusive marketing program:
Agents all over the country quickly grabbed the 100 membership slots made available in 2015, selling out in under 45 days!

Right now you have a choice to make, you can pass up this limited opportunity and continue doing what you have been doing - chasing the Holy Grail - and enduring one expensive marketing blunder and mishap after another. Or you can register right now for the upcoming webinar...and see for yourself how this system can transform your marketing.
On the webinar I will reveal an original and unique opportunity for you to grow your business at your kitchen table. It will enable you to quickly increase your income by $5000/month* (or more depending on your effort).
