Though futures were flat this morning, the three major benchmarks remain poised for a stellar monthly performance. And the government releases its retail sales report this morning, with economists anticipating an increase of 1.2%.

Meanwhile, the world’s largest digital currency just soared past $51,000, setting a new record.

And shares of Chevron and Verizon skyrocketed during premarket trading this morning, after investors learned that Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway owned massive stakes in each. The company no longer owns shares of Pfizer or JPMorgan Chase, and has been slimming its investment in Apple.

And, after a huge funding round last week, Elon Musk’s SpaceX valuation soared to about $74 billion.

Finally, millions in Texas still have no power, even as another storm ravaged the state (more on that story, below).

What else should you know before you start your day?

During the two years that followed the 2008 crisis, America went through the worst recession since the Great Depression.

And throughout that same two year timeframe when most Americans struggled to regain their footing, trading expert Andrew Keene found a unique way to make millions…

But how?

It was when he began to look closely at a company’s stock price data that he discovered an obscure 18-digit “code.” (clicking will opt you in to Profit Pregame’s free daily e-letter – Privacy Policy)

This “code” let him see when the hedge funds and investment banks were making incredibly lucrative trades.

Trades that wouldn’t make sense to the everyday American simply because the company wasn’t in the news.

And at that moment, he wondered if he could continuously tag along with these mysterious trades – taking a slice of the profits along the way.

So he tested it out…
And it worked better than he could have ever dreamed.

Millions in Texas still don't have power - this is why they are angry

Millions of Texans woke up frustrated and freezing this morning as their electricity, and, therefore, heat, remained off in the middle of a major storm.

“I know people are angry and frustrated. So am I,” said the mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner.

The power grid failed in the face of the massive snowfall and single-digit temperatures, and there is no certainty about when it will be fixed.

“We are very angry,” one resident said. “I was checking on my neighbor, she’s angry, too. This is a complete bungle.”

The outages have resulted in “several carbon monoxide deaths,” too, according to officials.

“This is unacceptable,” said Governor Greg Abbott.

So far, the Federal Emergency Management Agency said that the state had sought 60 generators and opened 35 “warming shelters” that could provide relief to over 1,000 people. But two of those shelters also lost power.

So what happens now?
