… Even If You’re An Experienced Trader

We’ve had amazing feedback from everyone going through the 30-Day Trading Bootcamp. But there have also been a lot of questions. Wondering if it’s for you? Here’s…

Everything You Need to Know About My 30-Day Trading Bootcamp

In today’s post, I’ll answer some of the most frequently asked questions. If you still have questions after reading this post, ask in the comments and I’ll answer them.

First, a little background…

A Global Pandemic, the Stock Market, and You

The pandemic ranks up there as one of the craziest things the world as a whole has experienced. At least in my lifetime.

Wrecked economies … People uncertain about the future … Millions unemployed almost overnight…

Humans are amazing, though. People all over America (and the world) decided to take action. As people sat at home waiting to get back to work, the internet lit up with searches for ‘how to make money.’

What did people find? Many found the financial markets for the first time. Trading and investing became a hot topic for millennials and the soon-to-retire alike. Millions of people opened brokerage accounts and started day trading. The numbers are staggering.

But here’s the problem…

It’s Not As Easy As it Looks

Which is why most traders lose. And it’s why the majority of people who opened trading accounts with stimulus checks lost. Many lost it very fast.

Want to know something even scarier? Some newbie traders actually won because of a little luck and the hottest market in decades. But they learned the wrong lessons.

I almost feel bad for them. The chances of them losing everything they made during the last 100 days is pretty high. I’ve seen it before. When the dot-com bubble burst, SO many traders lost everything. Many never recovered.

My duty as a teacher is to educate people to be self-sufficient in any market. That’s why I created the “Volatility Survival Guide” early on in the pandemic. It helped a lot of people understand what was happening, but many still didn’t know where to begin.

If you haven’t watched it yet, do so. It complements what you’ll learn in the 30-Day Bootcamp.

Other people fell prey to the Twitter pumps of 2020. Sadly, many of them found out the hard way that what I teach is real. How? They let the pumpers con them into trades with “see you on the moon,” and “only the weak sell.” Many are still holding and hoping on pumps from two or three months ago.

That led one of my top up-and-coming students, Matthew Monaco, to ask…

Where Should You Begin If You’re New or Feeling Stuck?

Matt contacted me and put it like this…

“What if we crammed everything I’ve learned from you in three years into a one-month course? That way people can learn, if not start trading, during this hot market…”

My answer to Matt was … “Yes, but I’ll need your help. If we’re gonna do this, we gotta knock it out of the park. You in?”

Yes! I’m Ready for the 30-Day Bootcamp.

More about Matt soon, because I couldn’t have put this together without him. But first I want to emphasize one thing: Matt didn’t just ask about newbies. He also asked about students who’ve been around a while but needed to review the basics. Or those who were missing a piece of the puzzle and struggling.

Matt and I agreed the 30-Day Bootcamp had to be the perfect guide for newbies. AND it had to have enough in-depth information for experienced traders to…

Add Strategies to Your Arsenal

I often say you should try to focus on one or two strategies and find what works best for you. It’s good to have a few strategies tucked away in your arsenal that you can trade when they’re hot.

You should still tinker, too. Try testing new strategies. They might be frustrating at first. You might even lose with new or different strategies.

But that’s all part of your…

Research and Development

Think of it like this…

Every major successful company spends money on research and development of new products. Some products never see the light of day. But companies still try to develop new products that might work better than the old ones.

That’s especially true of tech companies. There’s unlimited new tech. The industry constantly moves forward. The world’s changing and there are always more competitors. They have to keep innovating or become dinosaurs.

The same is true, to a certain degree, with penny stocks. But trading can be easier. There are roughly a dozen main strategies. You do need to do your own research and development. By learning and testing different strategies, you can find consistency.

For me, it doesn’t matter whether I’m buying multi-day breakouts, dip buying morning panics, or shorting first red days. I have this arsenal of setups. After 20 years I don’t research and develop new strategies. I have more than enough. I’ve seen bull markets, bear markets, and now the crazy pandemic market of 2020.

How the 30-Day Trading Bootcamp Changes Everything

When Matt and I created the 30-Day Trading Bootcamp, we had a goal. It had to be in-depth enough to teach a complete newbie to start trading in a month.

I have a lot of video lessons, DVDs, and webinars. But I’ve never done anything quite like this. An all-inclusive, step-by-step learning guide with one of my hottest students…

Yes! I Want the 30-Day Bootcamp.

The 30-Day Bootcamp gives you the preparation so many traders lack. We go over key patterns and lessons. Longs, shorts, risk management … it’s all there.

Even if you’re an advanced trader, this is a must-watch guide. It goes over everything in a nice, organized manner. More about that in a moment.

Why Should You Listen to Me? And Why Now?

I’ve been trading for over two decades and teaching for 12 years. Again, I’ve created DVDs, written thousands of blog posts, and filmed thousands of videos. I do weekly webinars for Trading Challenge students. I have five millionaire students and an ever-growing number of six-figure students.*

Here’s a little secret…

Teaching, like trading, is a skill you can improve over time. I’m a better, more refined teacher now than ever before. And I have a killer team to help bring my vision to life.

Which is why the 30-Day Trading Bootcamp is arguably the best guide I’ve ever put together.

$2,988 to $93,741 in Three Months!*

I want to thank Matt for his help in putting the 30-Day Bootcamp together. But I also want to point out that it benefitted him, too. Check this out…

Matt’s best month before doing the 30-Day Trading Bootcamp with me was in February when he made $11,944.* That would thrill most people.

But Matt had a ‘rough’ month in March. He only made $2,988 from trading.* (Mind you, he was still in college.)

Then, as we recorded the trading bootcamp in April, something clicked for Matt. He made $15,710 — his best month so far.*

(*These results are not typical. Individual results will vary. Most traders lose money. My top students have the benefit of many years of hard work and dedication. Trading is inherently risky. Always do your due diligence and never risk more than you can afford to lose.)

This is where it gets fascinating. This could blow your mind…

Exponential Growth in a Trading Account

Let me preface this by saying again that Matt studied for three years before we did the trading bootcamp. And … the market was exceptional in May and June. But the most important part of this story is that Matt put himself in a position to take advantage of the hot market.

How? Well, as he spent time with me and my team on the 30-Day Trading Bootcamp, he reviewed a lot of basics. Then Matt made $47,010 in May!*

That might sound crazy, but wait…

Matt made $93,741 in June.* Even as things started to cool down a little in July, Matt made $50,996.* At the end of August, Matt was up $54,668.*

Watch this video — Matt gives an update partway through August. He also talks about how much doing the 30-Day Bootcamp helped his trading…

Lessons From My Student Who Made $200,000+ In Four Months*

I hope you’re inspired by Matt’s story. But get this…

Matt isn’t even a full-time trader. He works two jobs! 

“Tim, Will I Be Able to Trade Like Matt After Only 30 Days?”

No. Sorry. I have to be completely honest and transparent. Matt had almost three years of studying and practice. Then the trading bootcamp and the hottest market in decades were like the perfect storm for Matt.

But what you CAN do with the Trading Bootcamp is create a foundation. Then you can prepare for anything and everything the market has to throw at you. You must be prepared for everything…

How Many Future Millionaires Will Use the 30-Day Bootcamp as a Springboard?

I’m super proud of my top students. Some, like Kyle Williams, Jack Kellogg, Matt Monaco, and Mike Huddie, are in the six-figure club. They’ve become self-sufficient traders.

Others, like Michael Goode, Mark Croock, and Roland Wolf, are in the seven-figure club. What they’ve learned has changed their lives. They can experience life on a whole new level.

Then there’s Tim Grittani — arguably the best penny stock trader in the world. Tim’s earned over $13 million in trading profits in the past decade.* He’s made over $3 million in 2020.*

I’m also proud of new students using my strategies to create their future.

What 30-Day Bootcamp Students Are Saying

So many people who’ve gone through the 30-Day Bootcamp are ecstatic…

How the 30-Day Trading Bootcamp Will Prepare You for Battle

So what will you get when you book your spot on the 30-Day Bootcamp? Check this out…

  • Daily Video Lessons. Each lesson covers a specific topic but also builds on previous days. This cyclic learning is almost like burning the material into your neural pathways.
  • Video Transcriptions. Some people love to take notes. Others love to read the video transcriptions as they watch. Some do both. The transcriptions identify key points so you know what’s most important.
  • 30-Day Bootcamp Starter Kit. Step-by-step guidance. You’ll learn how to scan for stocks, identify potential trades, and more. You won’t wonder what to do because the assignments take you through the entire process.
  • Glossary. Matt and I start using trading terms from Day 1. The glossary gives definitions and links to related posts here on the blog. (Don’t cheat yourself on this. Read every suggested post and chapter of “The Complete Penny Stock Course.” Watch every suggested video lesson on YouTube. It’s ALL important.)
  • “The Complete Penny Stock Course.” Matt helped me to distill my teachings into 30 video lessons. Likewise, my student Jamil distilled all my lessons into this must-read book. Even though this is a bonus, you’ll have reading assignments from the book during your Bootcamp. This is to help speed up your learning curve.
  • “Pennystocking Framework.” Crazy as it sounds, my seven-step framework is still valid after all these years. It’s something I observed, but I had no idea the same patterns would still play out years later. Now it’s the basis for five millionaire students’ success.* It’s proof these same patterns have been happening for years. This is one of my top-selling DVDs of all time. It’s yours as a bonus when you get started with the trading bootcamp today.

Why Am I Doing This?

Bottom line: I want people to learn. I want to make this education available because I never had a teacher or mentor. So I’m trying to be the mentor to you that I never had.

Why Now?

Honestly, I’ve been too busy the past few years. I’ve talked about doing something like this before. But I’ve been bouncing back and forth between trading and charity. I was traveling for a few years … And I didn’t have someone like Matt willing to step up and help.

Also, I have a great team now. (You have no idea how much work goes into creating something like this trading bootcamp. I couldn’t do it all myself. So if you love the 30-Day Bootcamp, give a little love to my team, too.)

My Trading Bootcamp Guarantee to You

I’ve had a few questions about guarantees…

Of course, I can’t guarantee that you’ll be a profitable trader after 30 days. That’s not something I could ever guarantee. (Run like hell if someone tries to tell you they can make you profitable in ANY period of time.)

But I’m sure you’re gonna love the 30-Day Trading Bootcamp. Which is why I’m offering a risk-nothing, keep-everything, 30-day guarantee. Here’s how it works…

  • Go through all 30 days of my training…
  • Read the entire “Complete Penny Stock Course” book…
  • Complete every task and action item in the workbook and…
  • Complete all the quizzes.

If you don’t feel like you got 10X worth your money, send an email showing proof you completed all the tasks and quizzes. My customer service team will issue a full refund for your payment.

PLUS, you can keep the “The Complete Penny Stock Course” and “Pennystocking Framework” as my gift to you.

It’s really a no-brainer.

Going, Going, Gone

I need to warn you about two things. First, I have no idea how long we’ll keep the 30-Day Bootcamp at the insanely low price you can get it for today.

We’ve had people come out on Twitter and say it’s worth 100X what you’ll pay. While that might be an exaggeration, it could easily sell for 20X the price you’ll get when you buy today.

Don’t delay.


WARNING: Don’t Take Another Trade Before You’ve Been Through the 30-Day Bootcamp!

I know … that sounds over the top. But check this out…

You need to be prepared for everything in the stock market. I can’t tell you how many traders message me with something like this…

“Yes! I finally get it. Morning dip buys … I LOVE them!”

Then there’s a week or two where I’m not trading morning dip buys. Instead, I’m buying multi-day breakouts. And those same students are just demoralized. They don’t know what’s going on.


Just when they think they got multi-day breakouts, I change back to dip buys because that’s what’s working.

In other words, you need ALL the strategies we teach in the 30-Day Bootcamp. And you’ll probably need to review them. Which is why NOW is the time to start with the 30-Day Bootcamp.

This hot market WILL change at some point. July wasn’t as hot as June. And August — while hot for August — wasn’t as hot as July. But it will change.

You MUST understand how to adapt to the market. Which means you can’t just have one strategy or setup.

PLUS, it’s imperative that you understand what actually moves penny stocks. That’s covered on “Day 7: What Moves Penny Stocks.” Get this wrong and you’re likely to end up as one of those bagholders the Twitter pumpers laugh about.

And beware of fake gurus who don’t share every trade. This 30-Day Bootcamp is so good that other so-called teachers are trying to copy it already…

All My Teachings in One Month of Studying

This year we’ve watched too many people put stimulus checks into Robinhood accounts. Or follow moron Twitter pumpers. Then they lose and wonder why.

There’s nothing like experience. But the Bootcamp can help speed up your learning curve like no other training I’ve ever done…

It’s all my teachings in one month’s worth of studying. Over the course of the next 30 days, you can learn all the basics necessary to start trading.

Those who focus on their education now are the self-sufficient traders of the future. What are you waiting for?

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 .
