What’s the secret to success? The answer will differ depending on who you ask. Some say that it takes hard work and dedication; others attribute it to luck.

My apologies, as this post was supposed to be posted last week, smack in the middle of the DRYS Supernova.  But, I’m currently traveling all throughout Southeast Asia visiting several schools my charity has built/is building in some of the poorest villages in the world:

…so my Internet hasn’t been that great.  I wasn’t even able to upload charts to this post, so I was forced to delay publishing this until now…the same goes for my delayed congratulations to so many trading challenge students who have been nailing plays left and right, making upwards of $30,000+ in one day!

My Thoughts On The Election, The Stock Market And The Best Sushi In Tokyo


URGENT: Register HERE for my free webinar on November 15th, 8pm EST, also grab these 35-70% off holiday sales on newsletters/DVD guides!

Right now, I’m in Tokyo with my family and we’re on our way to visit 2 schools that my charity The Timothy Sykes Foundation is building with the great Pencils of Promise, bringing the number of schools my charity has built, or is in the process of building to 10, roughly 1% of my ultimate goal of building 1,000+ schools…yes, when I often tweet to dream big, I actually mean it, as 1,000 schools, even in third world countries, will cost me between $40-60 million, which is my goal over the next few years.

No different than when I say I want hundreds of millionaire trading challenge students versus right now where I only have a few…so far (hence why my team and I work ridiculous hours on breakthrough software, watchlists, webinars, video lessons, blog posts, commentary, real-time alerts and email after email after email with guidance/lessons)

That’s why I have the most successful students in the entire stock trading industry, documented over and over again places like HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE, while others only pretend to have consistent success, ignoring their many students who have blown up due to flawed teachings/bad guidance, losing 50-75-100% of their money, while also posting 1-2 screenshots here or there of a few cases of “success” and giving unlimited excuses why they and their students aren’t transparently posting ALL of their results of EVERY trade, both good and bad, publicly, like my top students and I do.

And, because as much as I’m an obsessive teacher, I’m an even bigger foodie, so I love posting pictures of my sushi here in Tokyo:

And guess what sushi place everyone always tells me to go to? Continue reading

Can You Guess Who I’m Voting For?

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are tightening their grips on the Democratic and Republican presidential nominations.

My answer might surprise you, but it’s all about choosing who you think best encapsulates your hopes and dreams…that’s why I put SO much work into teaching my trading challenge students and creating more millionaires, my free guide and my 35-hour guide that has now raised nearly $2 million, ALL FOR CHARITY, preparing you and educating you in all the best trade setups/patterns/rules I learned the hard way over the past 2 decades…YOU are in control of YOUR FUTURE, you just need some guidance and education and THAT is something I can truly get behind.

So, please watch this video below where I outline my political views, but also the video below it, which we’ve also transcribed for my valued hearing-impaired trading challenge students, that explains a very simply, yet reliable stock market pattern that is working well right now in this choppy market environment: Continue reading
