You gotta read my initial press release and blog post about my challenge from November 1, 2007.
So now I’ve turned $12,415 into $90,368 in 2 years…last time it took me 4 years to turn $12,415 into $1.65 million, but I was undisciplined, lucky, aggressive, naive and in the right place at the right time. (Now I’m very disciplined, never lucky, or aggressive and the market isn’t as great for trading as it was 1999-2002)
I understand making roughly $80,000 trading in 2 years isn’t that great, but what my haters don’t understand is that 90%+ of traders lose so anyone willing to teach a proven profitable strategy is VALUABLE. Heck, even if I ONLY turned my $12k into $20k in 2 years, that’d have value too! (remember not one of 10,000+ stock mutual funds even made money in 2008 and less than a dozen of those 10,000 are up 80%+ this year)

Especially when dealing with penny stocks, which 99.9% of the civilized world mistakenly believes move randomly.
Remember, what other options are there for people with only $12,000? Trade Forex where 5 out of 6 people who open account blow up (lose everything) within a month? Or they could use Zecco and try to profit a few hundred here and there on low-priced blue-chip stocks like Sirius XM Radio Inc. (SIRI) and Citigroup Inc. (C). Or they could use leverage and play stocks incessantly discussed on CNBC like Google Inc. (GOOG), Apple Inc. (AAPL) and General Electric Company (GE). I hear Sharebuilder is cheap although their executions absolutely suck!
Problem is, even if you use options on those stocks, there’s far less predictability than on truly manipulated penny stocks, which are pumped and dumped by the dumbest people you’ll ever meet (stay tuned for a hilarious post later this week: a stock promoter tries to dig up dirt on me but instead exposes himself as a total moron)…after all, why would you want to compete against people like George Soros when you could learn to trade stocks that are pumped & dumped by people who have the IQ of Forrest Gump! (I make the comparison a lot in my 4 new DVDs because if you have any intelligence whatsoever, you have a clear edge over the vast majority of people trading penny stocks)
That’s right, the secret to my success isn’t some magic formula. I don’t manipulate stocks. It’s simple: I don’t aim to make millions, I take the easy low hanging fruit provided so generously by the dumbest and most corrupt people you’d never want to meet. That’s penny stocks and that’s why I love them!
I don’t care that over the same time period the S&P 500 is down 30%+ overall and has only gotten so “respectable” due to coming back 60%. Bear market or bull, it doesn’t matter, my strategy, which is based in short selling, works in ALL market environments.
Students of my TIMtactics instructional DVD package understand how to trade differently based on seasonality and market environments, but the point is that NO other trading strategy adapts so well to evolving markets. (If there is one, do tell and be prepared to overtake me as the #1 trader out of 35,000+ on Covestor…and more importantly have students in the top 10!)
So what can you do to partake in all my success?
You can get real-time trade alerts from me within seconds of my trades (and no, I don’t pick stocks because I get paid like ALL penny stock promoters, I even teach my research process in my TIMfundamentals DVD package)
I have made 10 different instructional DVD packages teaching everything I’ve ever learned.
You can auto-trade my account with a minimum of $5,000 and pay a low 1.5% management fee.
You can watch 100+ hours of my weekly LiveStock show for free and learn everything I know (or see an enhanced version of 10 hours with all my best lessons in the upcoming “Best Of ” DVD package)
You can follow me on Twitter for trade updates and blog post links.
You can befriend me on Facebook (only fan club now as I’ve reached the maximum # of friends already 🙁 )
As always, my business is all about teaching my strategy so ALWAYS feel free to contact me with ANY questions…cutting through industry BS is my job, ask away!
