There are REAL opportunities for small account traders in this market.

If you have any doubts, just ask Jack Kellogg …

Jack joined my challenge in 2017 after he graduated high school. He studied the stock market while working as a valet.

These days, he’s making enough trading stocks to buy his own sports car with ONE trade.

Take a look at his profit from July 1 as an example …

Let’s get one thing straight, before I reveal Jack’s favorite stock …

Jack wasn’t making $100,000 right when he started. Partially because he had a small account. Just like you.

In the beginning, it’s important that traders DON’T focus on the money.

Instead, focus on the percent gain. Once a trader can make 10% or 20%, they can scale up their process by increasing the position size.

I scrolled all the way back to Jack’s first ever trades … His position sizes were around $1,000. Compared to his $100,000 profit from July 1 … where his position size was $218,500!

Now, as of June 1, the stock that Jack traded was valued around $0.50 per share …


The share prices are cheap.

Start with $1,000. Start with $100. You could even start with $10!

Focus on the percent gain. Jack is such a good trader because he has the patience to follow my framework for big gains.

On July 1 he profited a stunning 47%!

There are a lot of opportunities in this stock market!

Make sure you’re watching the right stock. And remember to focus on the percent gain.

The money can come later.

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 .
