Why Everything Comes Full Circle In The Stock Market

I’ll warn you straight up that this is going to be a philosophical blog post, little different from my last hardcore philosophy post here, that turned out to be my least popular post of the year.

Download the key points of this post as PDF.

But as a Philosophy major in college myself, I know not to worry about what will be popular or not when you’re making crucial points that must be addressed…so let the college popularity go to all the athletes and business/finance majors, my fellow Philosophy majors and I have had much more success over the years than them, little different from the great movie “Revenge Of The Nerds”.

And that’s what I want for you — not short-term, but long-term success and so it’s important that you realize you get out what you put into the stock market. I’m not talking about putting in money, I’m referring to how much time and effort you put into your studying and preparation.

If you’ve seen my recent video interviews with my hottest trading challenge students like these guys:




…then you know what I mean because every single one of them has been studying their asses off in the markets and on DVDs, video lessons, and the all-important archived webinars available to trading challenge students.

Roland, my newest student to catch fire as he’s now turned $4,000 into $220,000 in 8 months despite just winning 65% of the time (because he follows stock market rule #1 here when here’s wrong), with EVERY one of his trades detailed here, is possibly in fact the most dedicated student I’ve ever had, even surpassing Dux in terms of the amount of videos, DVDs and webinars he watches.**

And sadly, too many people message me every day asking what the minimum amount of money, the minimum amount of time and minimum amount of effort they can put in and still be successful?

Perhaps they should read my blog post “What’s The Minimum Needed To Trade Penny Stocks?” and they would know the answers to all of their questions, but they’re too busy putting in too little time and effort to even bother to look.

Now I know there are some people out there, gunslinging, aggressive traders, who put in less time and effort studying and they simply bet bigger, sometimes even using 2-1, 4-1 or a ridiculous 6-1 leverage, so they can have bigger gains sooner, but I’ve seen too many of these gunslingers blow up and lose 30%, 50%, 75% or even 100% of their money on 1 or 2 trades, not realizing that since they were playing with fire from the get go, it was only a matter of time until they got burned…badly.

That’s the fault of flawed teaching and flawed strategy, not to manage your risks or far too often, even be aware of the significant risks you’re taking and we can place the blame squarely on newbie teachers who have just a few years or even a few months of experience, never having seen a bear market, never having made millions themselves, never daring to show ALL their trades publicly like this for fear of being exposed as the dangerous charlatans they are.

But don’t worry, any big market crash or bear market will expose them soon enough and I just mention it here so you can be warned about the dangers of having an erroneous or incomplete education as misinformation is the most expensive kind of education you can receive…and far too often you don’t realize it until it’s too late.

As I posted in my important and timely video lesson around midnight this morning:

A lot of people doubt me and my teachings, but I’m unconcerned because I know how useful my lessons and rules can be — you have to remember I had no teacher so I had to learn everything the hard way, through trial and error over the past 2 decades and that cost me a lot of time, frustration and money too…but eventually, I refined my rules that I now pass down to you. And my motivation isn’t just money anymore — my best-selling DVD guide here all goes to charity after all, now nearly $3 million raised of which I’m very proud, and every day my goal is to be the mentor to my students that I never had so you don’t have to face all the obstacles I did over the years.

Just a few days ago, I got a message from one of my longer term newsletter subscribers who doubted my thesis and my position on GoPro, which I outlined in this video lesson I just made free for everyone so you can see my thought process…and this person, who didn’t want to be made a public example of, so I’ll leave out their name, ripped on me for adding to my long position not once, but twice and yet I stuck with it, as I explained in this video lesson

…because this earnings pattern that I had faith in was solid…and it’s been solid for me for literally 2 decades…and sure enough my faith paid off nicely with a $7,000+ profit** just a day later (far sooner than I expected, but hey, I’ll take it!):

Now I won’t always be that dead on, and nothing I teach is an exact science, we live and die by the rules we make for ourselves and if you have no rules, especially in the stock market, you will discover that is a very dangerous path to be on.

So, I encourage you guys to listen to me and to follow my instructions to a T — not for my ego or any selfish reasons, but because I want more Millionaire trading challenge students and the best I know how to do that is to teach you every single thing I know, short-term patterns, long-term patterns, rules, mistakes, lessons, what to do, what not to do and every everything in between.

I cannot and will not guarantee you or anyone profits, but I will guarantee you I will hold nothing back from sharing EVERYTHING I’ve ever learned in now 2 decades of intense study and trading nearly every single day in the stock market.

My dedication, and more accurately, my obsession, will inevitably lead to more millionaire students because what I teach is too useful and it just takes time to build up a small account as most of my students start with just $2,000 to $10,000 to their name.**

If you understand what I’m saying and where I’m coming from please do leave a comment on this blog post and also share this with someone who doubts me and my penny stock teachings

…I can’t tell you how many people out there say to never buy a penny stock (despite the potential as we’ve seen for these hated-upon stocks to triple, quadruple or even octuple within a few days on plays like this), or that you can’t short sell penny stocks (yes you can, see my brokers here) or any number of other BS assumptions which all crumble once you actually study what I teach, and now what my Millionaire and upcoming Millionaire trading challenge students are doing every single day to profit as while I made nearly $10,000 on Thursday, this great trader made $20,000+ on Friday:


…so seemingly every day lately there’s a been a big winner, long and short…the question is are you prepared to capitalize on them and profit like we do?

Timothy Sykes

Hey Everyone,

As many of you already know I grew up in a middle class family and didn't have many luxuries. But through trading I was able to change my circumstances --not just for me -- but for my parents as well. I now want to help you and thousands of other people from all around the world achieve similar results!

Which is why I've launched my millionaire challenge. I’m extremely determined to create a millionaire trader out of one my students and hopefully it will be you.

So when you get a chance make sure you check it out.

PS: Don't forget to check out my free Penny Stock Guide, it will teach you everything you need to know about trading. :)

  1. DNN

    Timothy, I too grew up in a middle class family in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn, New York. My mother was a civil servant for the City of New York in Brooklyn for 35 years. We know all about living paycheck to paycheck and not having much. But through the grace and mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, we survived to be a living testimony today. And now, I get to move forward like you running a business and building up my net worth in humility.

    Thank you for just being you Timothy. 🙂

  2. Rob

    Much respect Tim. Keep doin what you’re doing!
    Take profits and cut losses quickly. I live by those words every day! Your strategies do work and it’s easy to see.

  3. Eric

    Just study .. There is no room for doubters … Haters on the other hand can (and do). become believers .. So study up not once, nor twice , but 10 times .. That’s the dedication Roland has …. And I’m sure it’s not enough either … In this case.m obsession is a good thing… Obsession leads to great things .. Whether it takes a year or five, it is not about the money at first. It’s personal growth, and the journey, to be a better person that defines you.

  4. Jaxx

    Tim just you keep up the good work and great trades.
    Like the saying goes “haters gonna hate”, so let them hate in there financial uncertainty. ..lol.
    I believe in you and am studying every chance I get.

  5. Theresa Johnson

    Hello Tim,

    Yes, I think this is really what I want to do and should be doing however, I have tried to get in on the offer on Thursday, September 6, and it did not materialize. I believe it has to do with my bank. Do you have any students from within the Caribbean? And how easy is it for they to be a part of the millionaire challenge? I would like to do this so I can show family and friends even associates that this is possible. But I have red flags.

    One other thing, I keep on asking for a step by step video on how to use the platform of TD ameritrade and no response. Please take into consideration that we all want to do this I saw over 400 persons on the webinar on Thursday and that did not happen by chance or co-incidence, it means that what you have been saying and sharing has gotten our attention. So please consider who don’t have over $ or more but want to get a start. Help us from here and then invite us to the Masters where the sweetness of the pie is really. I do believe you sincerely want to give back but think about the little ones whose interest you have sparked but they don’t know how to start.

    Thanks for everything you have been doing to help others, I would nominate you for a Noble Prize winner. You have helped many in a other countries.

  6. Jamey

    Tim, thank you so much for all the work you do to benefit our education. That dip buy pattern has been invaluable as a learning experience for a newbie like me. The bounce off of morning panics was one that seemed so counter-intuitive when I knew less than I know now, but thanks to your lessons I was able to see what factors are at play that cause it and how we can profit from it.

    I had some success as a silver subscriber, but, as a challenge student, I realize how lucky I was holding and hoping that I never incurred massive losses. The video lessons really drive home the need to find and refine your niche strategy and then adapt to the market every week.

    I’m looking forward to continuing this journey and achieving success long-term. I’ve been lower-middle class most of my life so I’m looking forward to achieving upper-middle class and beyond.

  7. Myra

    It’s good to be real…Study…study…study….no days off. I’m in Florida with hurricane Irma and studying.

  8. Charles Youmans

    Hey Tim – I fully understand what you are teaching here…

    I too am a Philosophy major – well minor – as I have a B.S. in Liberal Studies with the main focus on social communication and my minor was in philosophy – so hey – I am a firm believer that success comes to forward thinkers that do today for what they want 10 years from now – not tomorrow! I have been in your challenge now Since the end of January – and I know the studying is paying off – yeah, I have lost a few thousand dollars in the first few months – over eager & over trading – but after taking a little time off this summer and studying hard – I have finally stabilized my Account Draw down and I am now on the uptrend – making a a tremendous 60+% come back with my small account at the end August thanks to all your lessons…

    What has been different the past few months — Well — I let go of my EGO and stepped into the LIFE PROCESS – as truth be told – I Firmly believe that Trading Success and making money in the Markets is just a Byproduct of living a Well Managed & Discipline LIFE Program – one that entails solid learning habits & DAILY SELF-REFLECTION and SELF-ANALYSIS… AND if you are not Willing to Look at and ACCEPT your own personal defects of Character and do something about them on a DAILY BASIS – You will not be able change and adapt to what LIFE has to offer – and that includes becoming a successful Trader!!!

    I do want to say — Thanks again TIM — for all the LIFE lessons you provide for us – for being a Mentor with a Strong WILL that tells it like it is and not BACKING DOWN from your Transparent Philosophy of TRUTH – as it is a refreshing breath of air in this world of ours!!!

  9. Alan Jolliff

    I study many hours everyday. It’s taking a lot of effort to learn so much about so many things I never knew anything about before, but I believe it will all be worth it in the long run. Thank you Tim. Now I have Profit.ly and as soon as I can I will get Stocks to trade. My debit to income ratio is well over 100 % and I just can’t afford any more payments until I see substantial profit with my trades. I know it’s coming soon. Thanks for the opportunity and the education.

  10. Anne

    I am pleased to be in conference in Miami , I ll be please to meet you , if you invited me . I ll be in Miami at this time from Brussels.
    Anne Kholentanne

  11. Anne

    So Tim , I ll be glad to have a mentor. You teached me so many things in your videos. I made so many mistakes because of my greedy way to trade. In fact , I don t mind earning money for “my hassles” but I want to create a huge foundation for helping women blessed after or before abortion because they are obliged to do it : forced bye the boyfriend , or the economics statue , the family …..When I will dye, I can t bring money in the heaven but If I study as much as possible and built a huge foundation , after my death people would be able to follow my dream all over the world!
    I was kidnapping and I staied 5hours in the back of the car, I could escape of these men , I am alive for making sens of my life . Thx to read me and understand me …. see you on Saturday if you allowed me to come in your show event! Anne Kholentanne

  12. Richard Rader

    I received a email over a month ago, from someone in your office asking what would be a good time to contact me for the program, I told them the time and they said they would get back to me in the following week. Never heard back from them. Now as a business man, when I tell someone I will get back to them in a certain time or day or week and I don’t that makes me and my business look bad.

  13. Sarah Bonneau

    Am following you, trying to get my hands on all of your free material, paper trading small, following your principles; don’t have much cash for now, but will work to steadily build my 500$ account enough so I can get access to your challenge, and then be boosted some more, I am sure ( paper trading from one month through doing my best to intergrate what you teach).
    Thanks for being authentic, it truly shows that you care and have the heart of a teacher thoughout your teachings!

  14. Tim Vaughn

    Thank you Tim. Your blog posts and lessons are welcome every single day. Keep inspiring me and everyone and keep up the great teaching and knowledge you provide and have been providing for years to anyone who wants to succeed. I know I’m on the right path with you and the other great traders I learn from always, and that my life is exactly where it’s supposed to be today. Thank you.

  15. Scott T

    Thanks Tim. I don’t know what to say but I will say that I am very surprised that Roland has done more studying then Dux in his interview he said his whole life is stock but i guess with the double major he has less time.

  16. KnightRyder

    Thanks Tim!!
    I totally get it, and am now following your instructions to a T !!
    More motivated than ever !!!!!

  17. Travis McReynolds

    Okay, here’s my piece of the story (don’t worry, short version).
    In life, I am in an unexpected place of unfulfilled plans, broken promises and shattered relationships. I know I’m not alone I that. I bring this up because as most Americans can understand paycheck to paycheck, few of us care enough to break the cycle. I’m not one of those. Maybe my motivation is the reasons mentioned above; the intense need to escape the toxic conditions I’m stuck in. Private hell is a real thing and is unhealthy on a sobering level. Since 2014 I have followed you Tim. I subscribe to Tim Alerts and have maintained a daily study regimen of videos, blog posts and anything else you make available. All that is still lacking is trading capital, which will become available in eight weeks. I am thankful for these last three years of study as I had no other choice. It saved me the heartache of making the common newbie mistakes of over trading, taking wild guesses and only thinking that I knew what I was doing. Will mistakes still happen when I begin live? Of course. But am going to be much more prepared. Without a doubt. So, thank you Tim for what you do and have done for the past decade. It is real. I know it and so do countless others of my fellow students.

  18. Olga

    Thank you so much Tim for your teaching and always encouraging learning more and more. I am soo happy I got a Link to your webinar through James Altucher once and since then your teaching and pennystock trading became my biggest hope to get my financial independence to set myself free and to do what I love and hopefully to be able to give it back to people around me with time. I’m in the process of learning now, everyday a bit more and more. Have not yet got an account with a broker cause I spent all my money to invest into your course and to buy a laptop for trading. Soon enough I’ll start from a smallest account and practice and will learn more and more. Just wanted to thank you! And im so used to your voice now that I have it in my head all the time!!! 🙂 your penny stock Part Deux was very amusing with red bull!:) having some fun is always fun:) thank you for being real and for these philosophical articles too! I am happy I have someone like you to learn from!! Can’t wait to dive into real learning with real money!

  19. happykid

    Another excellent post! Thank you so much for being so devoted to sharing what you have learned. You are changing lives!

  20. Dwayne M

    Keep doing what you have been doing. I appreciate your transparency!! I am a student of the Millionaire Masters Program and am studying every day. I truly am in school. There is more than enough videos to watch. Seriously!! Plus the watchlist you send out ever night/day before markets open is encouraging. I can only trade a few days a week due to the PET rule and that is o.k. The more I trade; the more I realize I need to remain humble and continue learning. Thanks for all you do. Be blessed!! I hope to see you in Orlando in a few days!!
    Dwayne M

  21. Tracy

    As a student for barely 3 months, I have been studying – though not as I should, and have made mistakes but always rewatch a lesson or blog post where you continuely jolt me back to reality. I appreciate your directness, always conversing with facts and not emotion. Very rare – especially with “teachers” – so I thank you for all you do for your students. See you at the conference.

    Ps. Hope your Uncle and his boat are safe from Irma!

  22. Michael Bratt

    I just discovered you yesterday on Facebook when you were on the Steve Harvey Show. I am just an average truck driver with above average goals. I hav been reading your emails faithfully for the past 2 days and I’m very interested in what you have to offer. I want more than my 70 hour per week job can provide.
    If I’m accepted into the challenge, I will study as much as possible during my down time.

  23. MJ

    Thanks Tim. Your formula is for real. I believe in it. I just lack the capital to get started with my studying. I’m not concerned with money for trading. I’m more concerned with money for the program.

  24. Chaz Moses

    I’ve increased my knowledge account dramatically, without exaggeration I’ve watched at least 600 video lessons. The strategy makes sense to me as I remember to KISS-I’m enjoying the process. Btw I’m coming from the Middle East to attend the conference in Orlando! Can’t wait man!

  25. Jesse

    Tim, I just started as one of your Millionaire Challenge Students and I like the fact that you don’t hold back and share your experiences good and bad. Its nice to see you’re real and I appreciate you pointing us in the right direction to avoid the many pit falls of trading and help us move along faster than you did. Keep on keeping on with your teaching…!

  26. Keith Thomas

    Thank you for you honesty and caring. With what very little experience I have with trading stocks (and have already made mistakes) I have no doubt in my mind you actually care about your students succeeding. I appreciate your honesty and not trying to blow smoke up our ass just to make a sale. Believe me, I can smell smoke a mile away when someone is trying to get something over on me.
    I am bound and determined to study and learn all the information provided by you and your team and change my life for the better as well as my families.

  27. OceanRider

    I watched Roland’s video while escaping the hurricane and still in Orlando from the storm.

    The top students who get it, they put their time in and find their own unique way to come up with something that works for them using Tim’s teaching as a base. I look forward to working hard and doing what I can to be successful.

    Thank you Tim

  28. Katherine Crawford

    Thank you Tim! I continue to watch and watch the video lessons. What was once like information from another galaxy is really starting to make sense. I look forward to the conference and to watch the many more videos that are available to me. They are priceless and I know someday soon I will be reaping the rewards of dedicated study.
