Lessons From My Student Who Just Made $20,000 in a Day

lessons from my student

These lessons from my student will make a believer out of you, and if it doesn’t inspire you, then…well, day trading probably isn’t for you.

Still not studying much? Still not watching, taking notes, and shedding some blood, sweat and tears to become my next millionaire trading challenge student? Still not a true believer in hard work when it comes to trading?

And, if the story itself doesn’t inspire you, maybe $20,000+ profits in a day will.

This is what I want to hear from all my students—every day.

So, pay attention to what my student Mitchell E. just wrote me:

“I’ve been following you for years but never took it seriously until I went to the Trader & Investor Summit in Orlando.

Afterwards, I studied my butt off when not at work (I work as an analyst for a commercial real estate brokerage). I signed up for Pennystocking Silver and Stocks To Trade. I watched … and still continue watching How to Make Millions and Trading Tickers whenever I have time. I also watch many videos from you and your top trading challenge students and take many notes.

About a month or so into it I dove right in. You can see my track record on Profitly. I consider myself a beginner and continue learning something new every day.

So how did I make the $20k? Well, I must honestly say, I didn’t know TEUM was going to come out with a Crypto PR. I was in at an average of $1.54 with 20k shares during the run up in the morning, it dipped a little but I held. I set my risk at $1.45 since it was holding somewhat around VWAP.

My thesis was a power hour spike and sell into strength and if wrong get out. And well, TEUM had a Crypto PR and spiked like crazy. I sold all 20k shares at $2.61 for roughly a $20k+ profit. I also traded it again around 3pm, 3000 shares at 2.45 and sold at 2.6 for another quick $500 profit.

So anyways, as you can see, I’m not perfect, but like I said, I’m learning something new every day. I want to thank you again so much for everything you do, because if it wasn’t for you, I would of never became a trader!

Thank you so much Tim. Need to do my watchlist now and get some sleep. See you in the chat tomorrow.”


If you need a little help digesting these lessons from my student , I’ll give you the 3 key takeaways from this message right here:


  1. Study your butt off. Mitchell works a full-time job and still finds time to study my DVD guides and even take notes. If you want something badly enough, you’ll throw everything you’ve got at it. Think you don’t have enough time—you do. Even if it doesn’t seem like it. Your time is yours to control. If you insist you don’t have enough time, then winning $20k in a day isn’t on the top of your priority list.
  2. He watches everything there is to watch, and he doesn’t do it lightly. He doesn’t trust the first thing that comes his way. He’s careful and meticulous.
  3. He always considers himself a beginner, even when’s he’s just made $20k in a day. This is a lesson in humility that the best of us can learn from. There’s always…and I mean, always…something new to learn to stay ahead of the trading curve. The market is always changing, the tech is always changing that we use to play the market, and we’re always scrambling to stay ahead of it all to make more money.

So you want to be my next Millionaire trading challenge student and successful self-sufficient trader?

This is where you start, and this is how you start….watch this guide first since it’s my most basic and comprehensive and it REALLY helped Mitchell understand the whole world of penny stocks…and also dig through this free basic guide to penny stock trading as the sooner you learn the ins and outs of this world, the better as no one “hot pick” will ever make you rich, it’s far more important to learn a strategy, process and discipline so you can take advantage of whatever hot sector pops up…right now it’s Bitcoin, blockchain and legalized marijuana companies, before it was shipping and low float stocks, before that it was Ebola and police equipment stocks, there’s always some big mainstream trend that penny stock companies take advantage of and hype up as much as possible and that hype creates awesome trading opportunities once you learn how to navigate this worlds.

I’ll give you the tools like this crucial software that you should be using every single day, but what you do with them is entirely up to you. Get in the driver’s seat and start driving.

I’m not that smart or good at math and neither are many of my top Millionaire trading challenge students just like Mitchell wasn’t a born trader. In fact, he wouldn’t ever have become a day trader if he hadn’t stumbled onto me online and what’s made him successful is nothing he was born with, its just his dedication to studying, learning and adapting to capitalize on the penny stock opportunities he sees…like his $20,000+ profit on the junky company TEUM that is simply riding the wave of being in the right sector at the right time and most inevitably will fail and likely go bankrupt within a few years, just like every other horrendous penny stock…so the key is not believing in them or investing in them in the long-term, it’s just using their volatility and predictable patterns to increase your account and make you rich over time!

So even if you think you don’t have what it takes to be a trader, think again.  What you need is training and preparation, as the reason why 90% of traders lose has nothing to do with intelligence, it’s lack of guidance and discipline and that’s why I’m so proud of my programs like the Millionaire trading challenge and my guides like How To Make Millions…I’m training you with rules I learned the hard way over the past two decades of trading these penny stocks!

Thank you Sir Sykes! AND CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU MITCHELL. Don’t forget your head/gut game up in Tim’s Reading list too!

    I think that at some point, it just just clicks.

  3. Katherine Crawford

    This is a great success story. You have provided me and so many others with an amazing foundation to build on. I’ve been studying for months. Looking forward to do my next big leap and papertrade on the upgraded version on Stocks to Trade. I haven’t quite worked out the details on trading times to watch the market as my job is crazy busy. I’m going to find a place in the building where no.one can find me. Thanks Tim I so appreciate what you and your students do for a slowbie like me.

    This was posted late and can be somewhat misleading. Notwithstanding I did my research on this move. It happened on 12/26/17 in the AM.
    His profit was PURE luck. Granted 20k is cause for celebration but the problem here is the same I see in the chat rooms. You do not teach actual strategy, you essentially have folks buy/chase and hold and hope for the best. If it goes against you cut your losses quickly.
    I’m pretty sure Mitchel was not trading a strategy as the daily chart was neither up trending nor downtrending, a phenomenon you warn against trading in your DVD’s. So yeah, it was pure luck.
    I am genuinely happy for him but sad for anyone that comes in with hopes of learning a strategy. Tim I am not a hater but you really need to put more effort in future DVD’s which TEACH a strategy other than buy whats spiking, hold and keep a tight stop loss. And before you say go watch your other DVD’s I have studied (not watched) ALL! Some even twice over and non of them have specifics on a strategy. I’ve come up with one thankfully.
    It seems the real millionaires are pioneers who are left to come up with their own strategy whilst the majority of the herd just wait for an alert then chase.
    Just some feedback bro

    This was posted late and can be somewhat misleading. Notwhistanding I did my research and discovered the move took place on 12/26/2017 in the AM
    $20k is cause for celebration but this was PURE luck.
    This article alludes to a problem I keep seeing in the chat room; you do not teach an actual strategy, rather you have students buy something spiking, hold and hope for the best with a tight stop loss to accompany. I mean you can see clearly on the daily chart that it was neither uptrending nor downtrending at the time of the trade…a phenomenon you warn against trading in your DVD’s. So yeah it was pure luck.
    Buying random spikes is not a strategy, I would ask that in your future DVD’s you teach one. Sure your DVD’s cover much of the basics but as far as an actual strategy goes its pretty much left to the truly motivated.
    Relax, I’m genuinely happy for him. However I am sad for anyone who comes in thinking they can learn this strategy when in fact this wasn’t one. And before you say I need to go watch your other DVD’s I have studied (not watched) ALL! Some twice over
    It seems the millionaire students are the few motivated and brilliant ones who will teach themselves a strategy whilst the majority of the heard just wait for an alert, chase, buy, hold and call it a profit.
    Not a hater, just some feed back for you bro

    lol some of my biggest gains involved some luck too, some of my biggest haters don’t even realize they’re haters…the setup was there…if the stock didn’t have news that day, he would’ve held and the thing spiked tot he 3s a few days later so cut the BS

    Hi everyone

    Good day. I have a question for Timothy. I see you have a lot of successful students and their stories are very inspiring. I have some basic knowledge about stock trading and I am still learning the strategies. May I ask you if you do not mind. What basic strategy do you teach to your students? Are you teaching them technical analysis, indicators, etc? Just wondering if they are using only one strategy.
    Thanks a lot
