The life of a trader can be lonely.

You don’t need a team of employees to trade a stock for a profit.

And in most ways, that’s a huge benefit. Right? This is a job that I can do from anywhere. And I have.

I don’t need to clock in. I don’t have any superiors. No one tells me what to do.

All I need is an internet connection and a laptop.

But it can get boring and lonely from time to time. That’s why I’m so glad to be a part of a trading community.

Not a chat room that pumps stocks led by a greedy scam artist. A real community.

One that shares wins and losses, trade ideas, and helps each other grow through adversity.

The community is the reason I have so many millionaire students (31 and counting). And if you want to profit from volatile stocks, here’s how to use this community to your advantage …

Access To Millionaires

Plain and simple, if you want to be a millionaire (or a successful trader) the best thing to do is shadow other millionaires.

That’s why the number of successful students has been growing so rapidly recently. Because I have more millionaire students, it provides more access and a unique perspective for upcoming traders.

And by that standard, it’s pretty safe to say it’s easier today to progress as a trader than it’s ever been.

The chat room is open 24 hours and multiple millionaires show up every day.

In the screenshot below you can see we were joined by ArtOfWar, Beerock, Jackaroo, Markcroock, and Tim Lento…

Have a question? Need a second opinion? Looking for the hottest stocks?

Ask away.

And it’s not just the live chat.

Live Trading

I send out entry and exit alerts whenever I make a trade.

But one of the best ways I can show you how to trade is by actually showing you how to trade.

I hold regular live streams where I do that exact thing …

My students get to hear the thought process and see the chart all in real-time.

And I always archive these live events for students to access later.

Just like Wednesday’s live event with Mark Croock.

We reviewed his process recently and he shared the #1 pattern he’s using to profit.

Here’s the replay.

There are real opportunities in the market right now …

If you’d like to get involved, I’d advise against going alone.

It can be a lonely path to profits. Made lonelier without a process to follow.

All my millionaire students started here.

And you can too.

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 .
