Family First Visit to Israel
From Bali, I made my way to Israel. I’m here with the fam. It’s the first time to Israel for us, and it’s been a very emotional trip. It took us too long to get here. Israel is so incredibly beautiful — another reminder that the world is fascinating.
I’m grateful for the opportunity to trade stocks and teach from all over the world. And I hope it inspires you. Go out and explore. Experience the world because you only get one life. Make it count! I teach because I want you to achieve financial freedom. Then you can go out and see the beauty the world has to offer.
My Bucket List Visit to the Dead Sea
So far, one of the highlights of the trip was our visit to the Dead Sea. It’s a bucket list item for me. The water is so salty you can actually float on top, and if it gets in your eyes it stings like crazy.
As always, I’m trading. Even from this very special office…

I finally made it to Israel and what a trip it’s been as this place is SO INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL! This is your daily reminder that the world is so fascinating, it’s your duty to go out and explore and experience EVERYTHING as we only have one life so we must really make it count! And it’s also my duty to push the #laptoplifestyle further than anyone has before as #ilovemyjob and I’m so grateful to be able to trade stocks and teach from ALL OVER THE WORLD thanks to the revolutionary software @stockstotrade and my now 20+ years of financial rules learned the hard way that keep me safe and profitable in an industry where 90% of traders lose. I know it’s been a while since I posted something positive — and I don’t mean to depress everyone — but aside from just using new technology to trade/teach from the craziest places, there’s also an opportunity for us to work together and use social media to get the word out about so many urgent problems to get help faster than ever before and turning a blind eye to them solves nothing! To those who get it, I really appreciate you sharing what we post on @karmagawa and @savethereef with your followers as we can do AMAZING THINGS WHEN WE WORK TOGETHER! PS this isn’t just any body of water, this is the Dead Sea so you actually float on top and if the salty water gets in your eye, it stings like a B and it kills all electronics instantly so the difficulty level on these photos is a 10/10 and sadly @everchanginghorizon was forced to gift his drone to this sea so appreciate the lengths we go to for you! #deadsea #workfromanywhere #jewblue
As you can see I already have some really amazing photos. I’ll continue to share on social media in the coming days. The salt water is killer on electronics — those weren’t the easiest photos to get.
Before I get to low-priced stocks that are hot again, there’s one more important thing…
Fighting for Brazil’s Beaches and Marine Life
I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but there’s a catastrophic oil spill in Brazil. For the past two months, oil has been washing up on Brazilian beaches. And for two months, the source of the spill was unknown. On November 1, the Brazilian government finally pointed the finger. At a ship carrying Venezuelan crude oil back in July.
No matter who’s to blame, the impact on Brazil’s beaches and marine wildlife is devastating as you can see below…

⚠WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGES⚠ It’s now been nearly 2 months since the start of the now 2,300+ kilometer oil spill in northeastern Brazil and hardly anyone is helping despite more and more animals like this poor turtle covered in oil are dying every day due to a lack of help from professionals, the Brazilian government or any international aid whatsoever! How many more animals must suffer before the world takes notice and sends real help?!??! We know videos like this are difficult to watch, but turning a blind eye to the world’s problems solves so WE MUST WORK TOGETHER TO GET THE WORD OUT AND USE OUR SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS FOR GOOD RIGHT NOW! Please share this post with your followers, tag people, celebrities and news media that needs to see it as these poor animals need URGENT HELP RIGHT NOW before any more suffer and die — despite this being the worst oil spill in Brazil history and the largest environmental disaster ever recorded on the Brazilian coast, the origin of the oil spill is still unknown and the government has been unable to map the oil slicks due to it floating beneath the surface of the ocean, killing all marine life that it comes in contact with. Please share this post with everyone you know and let’s work together to make this go viral so the world takes notice and then we can finally get these poor animals the help they deserve! #savetheturtles #oilspill #karmagawa
There’s been very little international aid. And the Brazilian government hasn’t done enough to get the cleanup done fast. So Karmagawa is stepping in to help. We’ve created a limited edition black Save the Reef charity t-shirt. 100% of the profits go to charities working on the Brazil crisis.
Local communities and wildlife need urgent help now. Please join me in using social media platforms for good right now. Show your support: share this and get your limited edition Save the Reef shirt here.
Again, I feel it’s my duty, and I’m honored to be able to help. For me, it all started with gaining freedom through trading. With that in mind — back to the hottest niche in the market right now … low-priced stocks.
Trading Lesson: Low-Priced OTC Stocks in Play
Last week, a Trading Challenge student asked me this question…
“When you traded $KBLB on October 28, your entry comment mentioned this being a hot niche. Were you talking about low-priced OTCs?”
Exactly. A lot of 20–50 cent a share OTCs have been hot so I gave it a chance. Let’s take a look at the trade because the next student question is related to this one.
Kraig Biocraft Laboratories (OTCQB: KBLB)
On October 28, KBLB spiked on a press release about record production at its Vietnamese facility. My goal on this former supernova was to make 10%–20%. I only made a penny and a half per share — it didn’t get the real big pop.
Here’s the KBLB chart on October 28:
I still made $483 on the trade on a 7.32% gain** — so not the end of the world. Just not as much as I thought.
Profit.ly users Tommy_D and redwagonrider were following KBLB that day, as well:
Redwagonrider $KBLB will you break the channel at .24.
Second, it’s a real company. They’re growing their breed stock of spider-silk silkworms in the new facility. They expect to produce more spidey-silk in November than in the last 10 years. And they expect to start producing fabric from the specialized silk in 2020.
So the fact that they’re manufacturing — versus all these other runners that are just hype — it’s actually a negative thing. Real company stocks can’t spike as much because the company can’t grow as fast.
Let’s get on with some related student questions…
Questions From Students
Yeah, I probably should have traded it. But it’s so weird how this stock moves. It didn’t bounce right away. Sometimes low-priced stocks are unpredictable.
Even if I’d bought that first dip and caught the bottom at around 36 or 37 cents, at best I would have been out at 42 cents. But it’s more likely I would have gotten out there in the 38 or 39 cent range around 10:45. (Click on the chart to open full-size in a new tab.)
The big spike really happened randomly at around 11:30. My guess is some promotional emails went out. I can’t predict when promotional emails are going out.
So KBLB — for me — was the better spiker. It had the morning spike. It was an even better dip buy. If you go back to the KBLB chart, look at the bounce off the 10ish panic. And then it held pretty well the rest of the day.
COWPP Gets Caveat Emptor Designation
A quick note on COWPP. Yesterday, November 4, COWPP got the dreaded skull and crossbones. That’s the ‘Caveat Emptor’ designation from OTC Markets. The stock was suspended from trading. And that influenced other stocks to crash, like recent spiker DCGD (now trading as GRNF) and SBGD.
This is yet another example of why you should never hold and hope with penny stocks. The companies behind these low-priced stocks can, and do, fail regularly. I’ve said over and over again that 99.999% of these companies won’t make it.
That’s why when I take an overnight trade I’m meticulous with my preparation and planning. Even after 20 years. The last thing you want is to get stuck in a position you can’t get out of. Which I discovered firsthand — very painfully — back when I was running a start-up hedge fund.
Stayed up till 11 pm reading an American Hedge Fund. Halfway through the book. Very good read.
“You focus on big percent gainers, then look at volume and catalysts. Sometimes you mention the dollar volume traded. Will you please explain?”
That has a lot to do with the time of day. Some people say to me, “Why are you buying a stock like KBLB?”
I think it had traded a few hundred thousand shares when I took the trade. But I bought it near the market open. KBLB went on to trade 3.49 million shares on October 28. So a few million shares traded on the day is pretty good. But you kinda have to extrapolate.
If you’re trading right near the open and it’s a few hundred thousand shares…
… even though it’s not a few million, by the end of the day it will be. Versus buying near the open when only 10K or 20K shares have traded. That stock might only get up to 100K or 200K shares traded on the day. That’s not enough.
Then, sometimes people get confused with the number of shares traded when it’s a two-, three-, or five-cent junker. At 10 cents a share … even if it trades one million shares, that’s still only $100K worth of stock traded.
So sometimes with low-priced stocks, I focus on dollar volume. That’s because it can get confusing if you say something like, “Oh, just buy anything that trades a million shares.”
Sometimes there’s a stock trading at a penny. Not even close to 10 cents a share. And if it’s trading at a penny and trades one million shares … you’re talking about so little money it’s not worth trading. You have to think about that.
I suggest reading “The Complete Penny Stock Course” to get the basics together. Too many people want to latch on to one indicator — price, news catalyst, volume, or whatever. But you have to think about more than one thing. So get the book and read it. Take notes. Then a lot of these things will make more sense.

More importantly, remember you do NOT have to trade every day. Learn to prepare and wait for the best patterns to come to you.

Like Twitter user @TupuolaTeo:
Wooh! nice $419 on $CHFS, after a terrible October full of FOMO trading & terrible loss cutting. I was down $552, took a step back to revise my trades. Was pretty difficult to tell myself I was wrong, but I watched some @timothysykes and it got me right back to studying! pic.twitter.com/GpOBkaCMii
