Today’s New York Post article is spreading the word…

For smart traders, opportunities abound in the current crazy volatile market.

My top students get it. Do you? 

It’s easy to get excited about the stock market when you see incredible success stories like my top student Tim Grittani blasting through the $12 million profit mark … Or Roland Wolf joining the seven-figure club with his recent $1 million milestone.*

(*Please note: My trading results, along with the results of my top students are far from typical. Individual results will vary. Most traders lose money. My top students and I have the benefit of many years of hard work and dedication under our belts. Trading is inherently risky. Do your due diligence and never risk more than you can afford to lose.) 

But that doesn’t mean you should open up an account with the first commission-free broker you find and expect to strike gold in your first week of day trading.

Right now, there are opportunities for intelligent traders — not idiots who just want hot stock picks. You’ve gotta be willing to put in the time to find your own trades…

That’s why I really suggest you read the ENTIRE New York Post article. Then send it to anyone you know who’s interested in getting started with trading.

This article might not save lives, but it could save a few people from blowing up their accounts!

Why Did I Share My Strategy in the New York Post Article?

People might wonder why I’m sharing my strategy with a major media outlet…

“Aren’t you scared that the world of penny stocks will become oversaturated?” 

Nope, I’m not. History repeats itself — not just in the stock market but with the human condition. Most people are lazy. The majority of people who see the New York Post article will just skim it.

Some will think “hey, I’ve gotta start day trading, I could really get rich fast.” Then they’ll blow up their account in a week because they don’t take the time to actually learn how penny stocks work.

Sucks for them, but they might create more market volatility that can benefit my students and me.

Opportunities for Dedicated Traders

Right now, there are tons of crazy plays out there … if you know what to look for.

As I share in the article, right now it’s all about “low-priced stocks from companies creating potential COVID-19 vaccines, masks, or hand sanitizers, or those benefiting from the stay-at-home orders, like online learning and fitness classes.”

And maybe they’ll also take the time to learn my trading rules and take them seriously, especially my forever #1 rule: cut losses quickly.

My job as a teacher is to help traders get into the right trading mindset and really dedicate themselves to the process. I want to help traders get away from the idea of getting rich quick. Trading doesn’t work that way.

If I can save one or two newbies from the account devastation that so many new traders experience due to lack of knowledge, I’ve done my job. And if I can help traders become self-sufficient, I’ve done my job.

The Importance of Being PREPARED

If you’re familiar with me at all, or if you actually bothered to read the entire New York Post article, you know that successful trading is NOT about just following buy or sell alerts.

It’s about being PREPARED. Ready to start? I’ve got a ton of free resources for you.

For instance, my no-cost “The Volatility Survival Guide” is essential for all traders — no matter how long you’ve been in the game. In this two-hour video lesson, I explain the current market volatility and how to take advantage of it.

That’s just the beginning … I also have thousands of FREE videos on YouTube. You can follow me on Twitter. I post trade lessons, retweet inspiring students, and share my blog posts.

You can access my autobiography “An American Hedge Fund” for free and learn more about my story that’s briefly covered in the New York Post article. It’ll help you understand how I went from penny stock trading to the hedge fund world and back to penny stocks. And why I’m now a teacher and mentor who trades with a small account and donates trading profits to charity.

And I’m all about transparency, something that’s sorely lacking in the trading world. That’s why I started Profit.ly and share every trade I make. Both wins and losses. It’s also where you can find thousands of my video lessons on penny stocks, patterns, and trading.

For the most dedicated students, there’s also my Trading Challenge

I mentioned Tim Grittani earlier — he’s a penny stock legend now. He started with a $1,500 account and didn’t make any profits for his first nine months of trading. Now, he’s up $12 million, with $3 million of that this year alone.*

I didn’t make these students successful traders. I’m just training wheels, helping guide them based on what I’ve learned. These smart, motivated traders have learned from my successes and my mistakes and developed their own winning strategies.

Curious about getting into the trading game? The faster you realize it’s not just about money and that you’ve got to dedicate yourself to the process and build your skills over time, the better off you’ll be.

I’m psyched to share my story — let’s see what traders do with the information in this New York Post article.

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 .
