Here we are. 

Will this be the year your trading goes to new levels and you finally see all that hard work and sacrifice pay off?

Or will it be another one of those coulda…woulda…shoulda years?

Before the start  of the new trading year I like to sit back, reflect, and really start thinking about what I want to focus on to become a better trader, mentor, and overall human being.

For me, it comes down to seven ideas that I’d like to share with you.

While not all may apply to you, each has the potential to significantly enhance your trading skills.

#1: Process Over Profits

If you look at my +30 millionaire students none of them made any meaningful money in their first year.

That first year is all about building a foundation, acquiring knowledge, and developing the skills necessary to be a consistent trader.

One thing we don’t know is how things will play out in 2024 in terms of trading opportunities.

Some years offer greater opportunities than others.

But that shouldn’t stop you from putting in the daily work: studying catalysts, setups, patterns, reviewing, and preparing for the next day. 

You’ll be amazed at how you can capitalize on opportunities when you’re prepared.

#2: Positive Daily Habits Create A Positive Future

Small daily habits add up over time.

If you work on building a watchlist every night, scrutinize your trades, and study the latest trends consistently…you’ll be shocked at what a difference maker it can be.

You will get to a point where you can clearly identify what is working for you and what isn’t.

It’s all building to a positive future.

#3: Avoid Negativity and Negative People

There’s always going to be haters and doubters…unfortunately that’s sometimes our family and friends.

If your goal is to turn your trading into a meaningful income stream then surround yourself around people who have achieved that goal or are aspiring to.

Don’t spend time trying to convince those who don’t believe in you.

Life is short, and the best results occur with a healthy and positive mindset.

#4: It’s A Marathon NOT a Sprint

Mastery doesn’t happen overnight.

Very rarely can you skip steps. That said, you’ve got to adopt a long-term mindset.

2024 could offer tremendous opportunities…and I could have a number of new millionaire students because of it.

If that does happen, I can almost promise you that these aren’t brand new students, but students who are on year two, three, four, or even five.

All that learning, screen time, and experience starts to pay off when you’re in a good traders market.

That’s why it’s SO CRITICAL you put in the steps before you start seeing the results.

#5: Giving Back To Others Is Better Than Receiving

Early on in my career I focused mainly on myself.

And while it was fun for a small period of time…it got old pretty fast.

Luckily, I discovered the power of giving back to others…and my life has enhanced 100x.

Now, I’m not saying you should donate all your trading profits or start a charitable foundation…

But try to help people when you can.

Once you get in the giving mindset you’ll see how good it makes you feel.

#6: Remember and Optimize Your Why

Time is a luxury…

Anything you invest your time with should have a WHY.

Why are you trading? Who are you trading for? What are you trying to get out of trading?

There is no wrong answer here…

When things get rough…you will need to go back to your WHY to help you get through that difficult stretch.

One of my greatest accomplishments and one of the very first WHY’s I had was to take care of my family…something I proudly accomplished.

#7: Use New Technology to Improve and Learn Faster

I was among one of the first people to popularize online day trading some +20 years ago…

The internet has changed the way we all live our lives.

Now, some experts believe AI will have the same transformative power.

As traders, we must embrace technology and tools. If we don’t then we will be left behind.

All top traders use tools to make better, faster, and more informed trading decisions.

Don’t look at these things as expenses…

But more so, the cost of doing business.

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 .
