Happy MLK Day! Every year we have this special day off to remind ourselves of a great American who fought for liberty and equality.  In the past, I’ve made analogies here with respect to the disgusting biases that exist in the finance world and Wall Street.

I know, I know, it’s not nearly as important as what MLK stood for, but it’s important to note, so that you can understand the opportunities that exist in the stock market thanks to this bias.

To celebrate MLK Day this year, though, I won’t give any corny speech.  To truly capitalize on the opportunities that I see unfolding every day lately, I want to review some basic lessons from the past year that I think are crucial to your eventual success.

2016 is now over.  Hopefully, you read my blog post, “Reviewing My 2016 Performance” and saw my video below about my top trading challenge student making nearly $1 million:

…and now you see HUNDREDS of my students profiting every day now, as I outlined this video that surprised quite a few people:

(in the interest of time, I normally only feature 5-10 students per day, I’d have to do 90-minute daily video lessons to try to highlight everyone doing well.  Even then, I would miss many.  The beauty of my near decade of teaching FINALLY paying off)

…you know it was a VERY good year for myself and my students, thanks to some truly incredible stock market volatility in the last few months of the year that allowed junk penny stocks like DRYS to spike from $4 to $100+ in just 4 days and then come all the way back down just 4 days later and IDXG to spike from $1 to $20/share in just 3 days.

2017 has started out incredibly strong too, as we’ve seen SEVERAL incredible Supernovas on absolute junk biotech companies, like ETRM, which went from $2 to $30 in 4 days and now back to the $13s just 3 days later and DFFN, which just last week spiked from $2 to $15+/share in just 2 days, before crashing and burning like all the rest.

So, here are 17 lessons to help you crush it in 2017: Continue reading

Lessons From Friday To Prepare You For The Coming Week

What a wild stock market environment it’s been lately! To stay afloat in this crazy environment, you MUST be in my chatroom (sign up here to gain access) every single morning, especially between 9am and 10am EST, because we have 1,000+ pairs of eyes watching out for EVERY hot stock (double, triple or quadruple the size of any other newsletter focused on low-priced stocks).

In this market, you need to be prepared–ANY hot play can turn into a true Supernova!


Believe me, when I say that it is to your great advantage to learn about the big potential runners EARLY in the day (that would be BEFORE your lunch hour).

If you would like to see some examples of students who do just that, you can see some recent student gains HERE. Whether you’re trading with a small account (like I am this year…although my $12,000 account has now grown to roughly $75,000 in just 7 short months) or a large account, there’s been great gains for everyone, large and small.  And, even if you’re not trading yet or you’re paper trading, there are great lessons to be learned from all of this action too!

By the way, I just had my first $10,000+ week of the year, last week! See all trades here.

Download this quick cheat sheet.

Last Friday, I received over 50 tweet testimonials from my students.  I’ve shared 5 of them below, just to give you an idea of the kind of money that my students are making…ALL due to their absolute dedication to studying guides like THIS and THIS and coming into the market prepared, every day–a crucial advantage over the vast majority of lazy, degenerate gamblers in this niche, who only look for “action.”


Here are some of my favorite tweets, from traders who are NOT degenerate gamblers, but who are serious about improving their “game.”

Speaking of learning, I want to talk specifically about this past Friday, since there are SO many lessons from the many plays right now, as well as lessons from the $10+ million trader that I recently interviewed. Continue reading
