Are You Missing Out On The Best Trades?

Are You Missing Out On The Best Trades? Thumbnail

Imagine for a moment…

You wake up…scroll through a list of stocks and within a few hours…


You’ve just banked a year’s salary in a single day.

Sounds too good to be true, right?

It might seem for some…but I can tell you it’s happened to me many times. (Results not typical)

And you know what else?

It wasn’t an accident, either.

In fact, if you want to put yourself in a position to succeed each trading day…doing this is non-negotiable.

Especially since we’ve entered a bull market.

What’s Your Excuse?

If you speak to most traders who aren’t making money, they’ll usually shower you with dozen reasons why…

  • I don’t have time
  • I don’t have money
  • I don’t have the knowledge
  • I don’t have the experience
  • I don’t have the intelligence

Believe it or not…every trader who’s made it…had these same concerns at one point.

The difference is, they didn’t let excuses stand in their way.

They pushed forward and learned the ropes, and you can too!

Look, I can sit here and make excuses too…

I have a crazy travel schedule, and charity and mentoring are taking time away from my trading…I might not have a good wifi connection to trade…blah…blah…blah. 

But you know what?

Regardless of where I am and how sleep-deprived I feel… some things are simply non-negotiable.

For example, I still review my trades and analyze them to death.

I want to constantly remind myself of what I’m doing right and wrong and what areas of my trading I need to adjust.

And believe me, after 20-plus years of trading, It’s ingrained in me what my best and most profitable setups are—like my weekend trade, which is absolutely crushing it this year.

But I STILL review.


Two reasons.

First, I want to put myself in the best possible position to win. Knowing what’s working well makes me more confident with my trading.

You can have all the skills and trading knowledge in the world…but if you lack confidence in your decision-making, you will likely not succeed.

Second, what kind of example would I be setting for my students if I told them that studying is ESSENTIAL to their success…and then I go and not study.

Unlike most of the clowns in my industry…I prefer transparency.

Moreover, I want to lead from the front.

That’s why I spent almost a week reviewing my horrendous $27K loss.

I could have swept the trade under the rug and not mentioned it to anyone. The trade happened so fast that I never got a chance to alert my subscribers.

In other words, no one would have known about it if I didn’t mention it.

But losses are a part of trading.

And as much as you probably don’t want to hear this… you will probably suffer some big losses along your trading journey.

As your mentor, I want to help you avoid some of those mistakes. I talk about my losses openly because I’d rather you learn from them than lose your hard-earned money.

#2 Be Ready For Some Action

Now that we’ve entered a bull market, I expect to see  A LOT more trading opportunities.

You will miss it if you’re not prepared.

That’s why putting together a morning watchlist is non-negotiable for me. 

Tens of thousands of stocks are in the market when you include OTC names.

If you don’t narrow your focus, you’ll simply be lost.

In addition to listing the stocks I’m watching, I also leave notes for myself on why I’m watching and the setup I’d like to see in order for me to trade them.

I send it out to my Challenge Students several hours before the opening bell.

For example, here’s what I sent them yesterday:

IDEX, CYXT, GEGI are the lowest-priced spikers I watch every day…GEGI, I was dead on earlier this week but didn’t have the patience to hold for the multiday run, CYXT I just took a single as bankrupt companies are scary to hold for too long, and IDEX, I’m waiting for a big intraday panic, ideally near the market open, to dip buy into.

LEJU, WLDS, MGOL, and AHI are some recent spikers I’m still watching every day for potential dip buys into morning panics or morning spikes with big volume and news…no rush on any of them as they are all very choppy and can do financings is seems that will really tank these plays, but if the right news/pattern comes along they can still spike so watch them.

BWV, GREE, NKLA, WETG, and CALC are some of the biggest recent spikers I’m watching every day for potential dip buys and any morning spike buys based on big volume and, ideally, news catalysts.

BIG shout out to STT Oracle for nailing NKLA as a buy of just over $1/share, premarket it’s already up to $1.30/share.


Again the watchlist is put together is there to help me get organized.

Of course, there’s even a chance I take a trade in something that isn’t even on my watchlist. This is pretty common with stocks that have breaking news in them.

Overall, the watchlist is pretty simple, but it’s also very powerful.

For example, I ended up taking a trade from the watchlist yesterday. It was in the ticker symbol AHI.

You can see my notes here:

A quick 10% gainer…I’ll take that any day of the week.

And believe me, if you stack enough small wins…you’ll be surprised at how it can grow.

Look, we are about to enter some exciting times.

Those traders who put in the work and continue to put in the work are likely the ones who will reap the rewards.

There’s a lot that you can do…but at the very least, you have to commit to your daily study and watchlist preparation.

Hey Everyone,

As many of you already know I grew up in a middle class family and didn't have many luxuries.

I now want to help you and thousands of other people from all around the world achieve similar results!

Which is why I've launched my Trading Challenge. I’m extremely determined to create a millionaire trader out of one my students and hopefully it will be you.

So when you get a chance make sure you check it out.
