But Kyle isn’t some superstar who never makes mistakes. This is a trader who almost blew up his account before he started trading smaller. He’s the student who watched ALL my DVDs and Trading Challenge video lessons in six months…
He’s a perfectionist who learns from his mistakes. That’s why he’s gotten to where he is today. Check out what you can learn from him…

Kyle: The 411
Here’s what sets Kyle apart.
Kyle’s Go-To Trading Patterns
- Shorting OTC promotions and overextended runners. This was his bread and butter on his way to his first million.
- Dip buys. When OTCs heated up in 2020 and 2021, Kyle adapted. Now OTC dip buys are a big part of his arsenal.
- Breakouts. He tried buying breakouts as a newbie — then he almost went bust. But he kept at it … Now he’s so good, he moderates the Breakouts & Breakdowns chat room.
Kyle’s Trading Stats
- Trading superpower: Kyle’s a switch-hitter. His expertise at shorting makes him good at going long too.
- Favorite Trading Challenge resource: Video lessons! Kyle says that at one point he watched 30 video lessons a day.
- When he’s not trading … Kyle hits the gym. He’s been doing four workouts a week longer than he’s been trading. This is where he learned his killer discipline.
- How he splurged after passing $2 million: Kyle didn’t buy a Lambo after $1 million, he just went back to work. But when his grandparents’ dog died, he put his career on hold… He chartered a private jet, then flew out to surprise them!
I am SO proud of so many of my newest https://t.co/occ8wKDW7U students like @traderkylec who not only have made millions, but now they're also treating their family & donating to charity too!

- June 2016: Kyle enrolled in my Trading Challenge a long way back. There’s a reason you didn’t hear his name back then — he just lost money.

- 2018: Kyle made back the money he’d lost by the start of 2018. By the end, he had $32,282 in his trading account.
- 2019: Things start clicking into place. Kyle ends the year as a six-figure student, making just over $92,000 in profits.
- 2020: When 2020 hit, Kyle was prepared. His account went exponential, raking in $700k by year’s end.

Kyle’s Trading Story
Before watching the movie “The Big Short,” Kyle was a mild-mannered engineering student at San Diego State University.
But when he saw the possibilities in the stock market, everything changed. He switched majors to finance and applied for and was accepted into my Trading Challenge.
Like so many traders, he started out too cocky. Kyle lost more than half of his $6,000 starting balance before he turned things around. Here’s how he dialed in:
- Sizing down to smaller positions
- Committing to learning the process
- Devouring everything the Challenge has to offer and becoming an active part of the community
By the end of his first 18 months, Kyle learned how to be profitable. Then, years two and three were devoted to perfecting his strategy…
When the market turned hot, Kyle was ready to capitalize.
Now, all of his work is paying off for him. As I write this, Kyle’s over $2.7 million in trading profits.
He’s a leader in my Trading Challenge. He has over 20,000 Twitter followers. But at his core, Kyle is the same hard worker he’s always been.

Kyle’s Top Trading Wisdom
Kyle had a head start on the discipline front. When he realized that trading was something he had to learn, he got serious…
- He’d tune into the first and last hour of the market every day.
- In between, he watched 30 video lessons a day — averaging five minutes each — and one webinar.
- At night, he’d make his watchlist and read a trading book for about an hour each.
He figures he spent eight hours a day on all this. Some traders put in 17 hours a day, like Roland Wolf when he was starting. No, that’s not right for everyone.
The key, Kyle says, is consistency.
If you can study a ton and keep it up, congrats. You’re a machine. But if you burn out, you’ll learn your limits.
If you can study for six hours a day consistently, commit to that. If three hours is what you can do every single day, that’s your magic number.
Build your knowledge account at the pace that’s right for you. Or give up and have something in common with most traders who fail. Your choice.
Key Quote from Kyle
“I watched “Trading Tickers” with Tim Grittani. He was going through trading plans and then he’s making money with those trades. I felt like, if he can do it, I can do it. There’s just something I’m not getting yet.”
The Trading Challenge
I’ve had the pleasure of being Kyle’s teacher and watching him grow.
I’m so glad to have him teaching alongside me in the Trading Challenge. He’s still growing as a trader … and as a teacher.
Every month, he posts trading recaps. I can’t overstate how INCREDIBLY VALUABLE they are — and how generous it is that he does this.
But you must be ready to commit. We need more Kyles in the market!
