Exposing A Bad Trader

URGENT: Save $700+ here on earlybird tickets to my upcoming conference

Recently I’ve exposed one of my own problems here, now it’s time to expose something even more important, bad trading.

Because despite my $4+ million in trading profits, I am NOT a great trader and as many of my students who have been learning from me for several years know, I often make bad trades, exiting positions FAR too soon as I trade like a true coward.

See these live trading videos and read about these trades as some past examples, but just this week I have a PERFECT example, as I bought the pump VMRI PERFECTLY at the $1.70/share breakout level, just 24 hours before it would go up 100% to $3.40 and guess how much of that 100% move did I capture?

A lousy 1/10th…just the latest in a very long line of bad trades for me.

Why am I telling you this? Continue reading

3 Reasons I’m An Idiot

URGENT: Final 72 hours on this 70% off DVD sale on my 35-hour charity DVD (that’s the FINAL length, it was finished TODAY!) and this 50% off newsletter sale and this 50% off DVD sale

 

I’ve been extremely successful/blessed in my life and now I have several trading challenge students who have passed $1 million in profits using my stock market strategy/rules, but I am not a smart man.

Momma says stupid is as stupid does and I’ve done a lot of stupid things in my life…see examples HERE and HERE.

Here are 3 more recent examples of why I’m an idiot: Continue reading

URGENT: Regarding February 1st

2015 has gotten off to an incredibly fast start as I got engaged in Bali, the US stock market has been on a wild multi-week ride, the Euro & oil are crashing and as evidenced by this trading challenge student’s 2015 $70,000 in profits there are more plays than we know what to do with!

(And Tim Grittani will be the first to admit he hasn’t captured any significant part of the potential profits from classic patterns like these on penny stock pumps like IFAN, VOIL, CUBA, ADXS and FXCM just like I’ve captured an even smaller part of the profit pie) Continue reading

I’m Sorry But I Can Explain

Yesterday I FINALLY just finished my 34 hour charity DVD ‘How To Make Millions‘ which I wanted to finish before my Bali trip, but just rant out of time.

I have to apologize for that, but considering I was busy designing my engagement ring (she said yes!) and the fact that I initially thought the DVD would be ‘only’ 24 hours long and it turned out to be an extra 10 hours of educational content since I’m a perfectionist, there really was no other choice.
