If you’re like most traders…you’ve probably hit a wall more times than you can count.
Overtrading…lack of discipline…and the feeling like you’re on a never ending rollercoaster of emotions…right?
It’s a common cycle that most can’t ever seem to shake.
However, what if I told you there are ways you can dramatically improve your trading without placing a single trade?
In fact, I am almost certain that several of my millionaire students took this route on their path to trading mastery.

#1: Trade On Paper
There’s no greater way to learn than having money in the market and “skin in the game.”
However, if you take it seriously, you can find a lot of benefits in paper trading.
It’s like the trading world’s flight simulator…
You get all the experience of trading real stocks…without risking your hard earned money.
It’s perfect for newbies or even seasoned traders looking to test new strategies.
By paper trading, you get to:
- Hone your skills in reading the market
- Experiment with different strategies without financial risks
- Develop a feel for market volatility and how to react to it
Over time, it can help you create a disciplined approach to trading without the emotional baggage that often comes with real money on the line.
If you’re looking for a paper trading platform…there’s nothing better in my opinion than the StocksToTrade Platform.
When people join my mentoring program they always ask…which one of my videos should they watch first and learn from.
They’re usually shocked when I tell them ALL OF THEM.
Yes…even my videos from 5-6 years ago are still relevant today as they were when I first recorded them.
Some things like market psychology, risk management, and developing a disciplined plan don’t change.
Who’s still awake studying?! Who wants success so bad you can taste it and won’t rest until it’s YOURS!!!!

#3: Journaling and Self-Reflection
One of the best ways to learn is from traders better than you. Study their best trades, take notes on what they’re doing right and wrong.
Journaling may sound a little corny…but it’s something I do daily.
Keep a journal of your potential trades, why you would have made them, and track their hypothetical outcomes.
Here’s how it helps:
- It encourages you to articulate your reasoning, which sharpens your decision-making process.
- It helps identify patterns in your trading thought process.
- Reflecting on your “paper trades” can provide insights into your trading psychology.
#4: Network and Learning From the Community
Several of my new millionaire students including Matt Monaco, Bryce Tuohey, Kyle Williams, Jack Kellogg, and Mariana Hincapie all worked together on their journey to becoming highly successful traders.
Engaging with a trading community is invaluable. It allows you to tap into a wealth of knowledge.
Here’s what you gain:
- Learning from others’ experiences saves you from common pitfalls.
- Community discussions can offer new perspectives and strategies.
- Networking can accelerate your learning curve.
I just had one of my favorite networking events a few weeks ago at the Timothy Sykes Trader and Investor Conference. If you ever get a chance to attend one of these meetings, don’t hesitate to do it…for some it is life-changing.
LIFE CHANGING CONFERENCE!! I became a member with my husband and we have been NONSTOP ever since!! Almost 80 hours of study, we’re going for it!! Committed, Determined and Driven… we’ll make it work! For us, for our children and for the things we care about!!! Whoot Whoot!!!
