The market is ON FIRE right now.

And there are opportunities galore for traders who understand my trading process.

Yesterday we watched Soligenix Inc. (NASDAQ: SNGX) spike 500%*. And it wasn’t the only setup … See my post on X below:

Here’s a chart of the SNGX spike, it started to run after the company announced its Lymphoma treatment showed positive efficacy.

My students and I had eyes on this stock during premarket!

The first mention in the Challenge chat was at 7:43 A.M. Eastern … In the screenshot below, read from the bottom to the top.

And here’s one of my student’s posts on X, detailing their trade on SNGX from Tuesday:


This volatility is FAR from over.

The overall market is on a huge push higher, and tomorrow, July 11, we learn CPI inflation data for the month of June. That’s likely to inspire even more market volatility.

Curious how my students and I profit?

What’s Working Right Now

I already made three trades this week on the same stock.

Once I find a runner that matches my pattern, I follow that price action for more profit opportunities.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

Take a look at my profits from Zapp Electric Vehicles Group Limited (NASDAQ: ZAPP) earlier this week:

I’ve taught this process to countless students. I have over 40 millionaire students to date …

Here’s an example of my students applying this same process to a different stock:


Once a trader grows comfortable with this strategy they can apply it over and over again on the next profitable setup.

And this is the best part: Traders can start with a small account because the stocks that we trade are cheap. Then they can size up over time using THE SAME trading strategy.

That’s how all of my millionaire students started. For example, Jack Kellogg is one of my most successful students with $12.7 million in trading profits, but he’s no exception!

Jack joined the Challenge in 2017 with $3,000 saved up from his valet job.

And look at him now! See my post on X below:

This is where Jack posts his top trade setups.

There is SO MUCH opportunity in this market. A trader just needs to learn this process …

Trade And Study At The Same Time

A few years ago, when Jack started, the study process was different. Very different!

A new trader had to tune in for trading live streams. They had to study my past trades, and largely assembled watchlists by themselves without guidance.

There’s only one of me … I do what I can! But sometimes things fall through the cracks.

With that process, I was able to grow my cohort of millionaire students at a decent pace. But in 2024, we hit a major breakthrough.

The emergence of AI added a lot of value to the market as a whole. But for traders in our niche, there’s one MAJOR advantage.

The trading patterns that we follow aren’t complicated … The complications arise when traders don’t follow the rules. They get greedy and they stop following the patterns.

I taught an AI bot how to follow my trading process. And it HAS to follow my rules LOL.

In 2024 it’s calling solid trade setups. Setups that my students can follow even if I’m unreachable on a plane or without WiFi in some remote location (I’m an avid traveler).

Below is a screenshot of the AI watchlist posted on July 8 at 3:15 P.M. Eastern.

The top two stocks, ZAPP and MYO … Take a look at what happened the next morning, July 9.

Every candle represents one trading minute:

Let the AI bot guide your trades. It follows my process for profits.

And it gives traders potential entry and exit positions that focus on risk mitigation.

This is smart trading.

Sustainable trading.

The available research on day trading suggests that most active traders lose money. Fees and overtrading are major contributors to these losses.

A 2000 study called “Trading is Hazardous to Your Wealth: The Common Stock Investment Performance of Individual Investors” evaluated 66,465 U.S. households that held stocks from 1991 to 1996. The households that traded most averaged an 11.4% annual return during a period where the overall market gained 17.9%. These lower returns were attributed to overconfidence.

A 2014 paper (revised 2019) titled “Learning Fast or Slow?” analyzed the complete transaction history of the Taiwan Stock Exchange between 1992 and 2006. It looked at the ongoing performance of day traders in this sample, and found that 97% of day traders can expect to lose money from trading, and more than 90% of all day trading volume can be traced to investors who predictably lose money. Additionally, it tied the behavior of gamblers and drivers who get more speeding tickets to overtrading, and cited studies showing that legalized gambling has an inverse effect on trading volume.

A 2019 research study (revised 2020) called “Day Trading for a Living?” observed 19,646 Brazilian futures contract traders who started day trading from 2013 to 2015, and recorded two years of their trading activity. The study authors found that 97% of traders with more than 300 days actively trading lost money, and only 1.1% earned more than the Brazilian minimum wage ($16 USD per day). They hypothesized that the greater returns shown in previous studies did not differentiate between frequent day traders and those who traded rarely, and that more frequent trading activity decreases the chance of profitability.

These studies show the wide variance of the available data on day trading profitability. One thing that seems clear from the research is that most day traders lose money .
