Trading is not just a game…
It’s a psychological battle against the market– and yourself.
Trusting the process is vital…yet often elusive.
Patience is your companion, the quiet force guiding you to wait for the right moment.
Logically, it makes sense.
However, we have this incredible urge inside us to go out and trade, and try to make something happen. We sometimes want to make money so bad…that we force trades.
Which usually ends with pain and regret.
Remember LIFW’s wild ride from $3.05 to $17.48?
Sure…it was an epic short squeeze. But what if I told you there was a cleaner trade, more calculated, and incredibly lucrative?
I’ll show what that trade was, how it was responsible for one of my best trading days of the year, and how you can potentially take advantage of this recurring setup.

One Of My Best Days…Despite Difficult Conditions
Believe it or not…some of my best trading days occur when I’m jet lagged and sleep deprived.
Monday was no different.
If you’ve been following me on social media then you know I’m in Japan right now.
Not only did I get a chance to meet up with one of my first millionaire students, Michael Goode…

But I got an opportunity to meet up with my inner circle student Cameron and his wife…
The first of many new https://t.co/1xJmEobXws students to get treated to a free all expense paid trip…welcome Cameron & his wife to Japan! It’s 2:52am so I’m gonna sleep for 2 hours then give a webinar…how bad do you want success/how hard will you push yourself to achieve it?! pic.twitter.com/BIg23PcVlM

If you haven’t heard about my inner circle yet, you can learn more about it here.
So yeah…I haven’t gotten tons of sleep…but that actually works in my favor.
Because I’m not in a rush to trade.
Moreover, it allows me to focus and wait for the absolute best setups to trade.
And that’s what happened on Monday.
Was This A Cleaner Trade Than LIFW?
I actually didn’t trade LIFW on Monday…however I did have it on my radar.
In fact, days before the epic short squeeze, I made an entire video about it.
It rallied by more than 1,000% from when I first got in earlier in the month.
But despite not trading it on Monday…I was able to get in on the action via a sympathy play.
What Is A Sympathy Play
A “sympathy play” is a term for stocks that catch the momentum of a leading stock within their sector or sharing key traits.
These “sympathy” stocks often trend alongside the primary mover, reflecting sector-wide investor sentiment.
Take the meme stock mania of 2020: one stock’s gain would typically buoy others in its wake, demonstrating the phenomenon. In the crypto stock rally of 2021, a single stock’s positive news could trigger a widespread surge.
While this dynamic affects both positive and negative news, the initiating stock usually experiences more intense volatility compared to its sympathetically moving counterparts.
So what was the sympathy play for LIFW?
Was CANO A Better Play Than LIFW?
I traded the ticker symbol CANO twice on Monday…making solid gains each time.
Why did I trade it?
Because I got a StocksToTrade Breaking News alert… It turned out that CANO had a 60% stake in LIFW. In other words, the higher LIFW went up…we should see some upwards movement in CANO.
And that’s exactly what happened.
I got a chance to trade it on a panic dip buy again…
At one point the stock was up over 50%…
Now, I didn’t nail the entries or exits…
But when a stock makes such an impressive move…you don’t have to be perfect to profit.
And you know what else?
Traders are constantly looking for sympathy plays.
Because if something recently worked…they are trying to replicate that success.
They’re always trying to find connections and take advantage of similar situations.
That’s why I’m constantly telling my students to study hard.
