More Schools

I’ve made over $64K so far this year — that’s mostly from small gains. But I’m not as excited about the money as I am about what I can do with it.

I donate 100% of my trading profits to charity. And I’ve been working on some amazing projects lately…

Just this month, I announced my 105th school with Karmagawa. My goal is to build 1,000 schools — or more!

I’m SO proud to give back in this way. I’m thankful for the current market that’s helping me make money so I can help more people!

More Millionaire Students

I now have 20+ Trading Challenge millionaire students.

Several of them passed the million-dollar milestone since my last birthday — including but not limited to Sandeep, Brock, and Tim Lento (who’s also one of my Trading Challenge chat room moderators).

Several existing millionaire students have made yet MORE millions in trading profits.

On this day last year, Jack Kellogg was up over $6.4 million. Today, he’s up over $9.7 million. (By the way, Jack had his own $100K birthday surprise last year. Check it out here.) Just check out his beautiful profit chart.

I want MORE millionaire students. That’s why I’m creating more tools every day to help you succeed.

More Resources For You

There’s no guarantee that you’ll become a millionaire if you start trading.

You’re the one who has to do the work. You’ve gotta study hard and be disciplined.

But I can give you resources that can help you learn.

All my millionaire students started in my Trading Challenge — it’s the ultimate resource to invest in your ‘knowledge account.’

Plus, in the past couple of years, I’ve created a lot more resources for traders like you…

I created a 30-Day Bootcamp with my millionaire student Matthew Monaco. I set up a deal for you with one of my top brokers.

Recently, I expanded into NFTs — one of the hottest types of trading right now.

I even have a special going on with StocksToTrade in honor of my birthday.

For a limited time, you can get access to the platform, PLUS one of my top trading tools, Breaking News Chat, PLUS a proprietary new scanner I created just for my birthday. Seriously, you can’t miss this.

My Birthday Present To You…

You read about what I’m excited about on my birthday…

Now it’s time for a present for YOU.

I’ve never done ANYTHING like this … For my birthday, I’m giving away $100K worth of gifts.

My publisher pitched a fit when I said I wanted to do this … He said ABSOLUTELY NOT.

But it’s my birthday, so I’m doing it anyway. This offer won’t last forever…

You must act now.

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 .
