Ladies and gentlemen, happy Friday.

Out of 13 trades so far this week, only two of them were losses. And I’m sitting just under $5k in profits going into Friday’s volatility.

Pay attention today! There will be more trade opportunities.

Take a look below at my total profits for the week. I included one of my losses to prove that I’m keeping it real.

I don’t trust traders who don’t share their losses.

There is a process for profits in the market. And it involves losses.

The key is to recognize and control the losses.

My millionaire students and I stick to the process … and our profits outweigh the losses.

There’s an opportunity to watch this process LIVE today! This is how my trading students learn best:

  • The hottest stocks.
  • Real traders, making real trades, in real time.
  • Q&A.

Stop wasting time!

I’m holding live streams to show traders this process … but in truth, I’m not the best trader.

I’m a good trader. $7.6 million in career trading profits is nothing to sneeze at. Especially when 90% of traders lose …

But I usually sell too quickly. Or I miss plays because I’m traveling and teaching.

My student, Jack Kellogg, is a shining example of the true opportunities for small-account traders right now.

Jack started trading in 2017 with $10k from his valet job. Using the same trading process, he’s already pulled $12.5 million from the stock market.

Today Jack is holding a trading live stream from 2:30 P.M. Eastern to 4 P.M. Eastern for Challenge students.

Here’s why that’s exciting:

The last few hours of the trading day on Fridays are some of the hottest times to trade. The volatility soars as we enter the weekend.

>> This is the pattern that we use to catch Friday-afternoon runners <<

And today, there’s a perfect opportunity to watch this happen LIVE.

Attention Challenge Students: Tune in at 2:30 P.M. Eastern!

You don’t need to be a math genius to profit from these volatile runners.

Stop making excuses for yourself. Learn this process!

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 .
