An Athlete’s Guide To Stock Trading (Incredible Daily Motivation)

URGENT: Reminder that my free November 1st webinar HERE has been rescheduled to November 15th, you must re-register HERE!

The other day, one of my favorite NBA basketball players, Ray Allen, retired.  But, he also penned this brilliant essay that I review in this video as it’s STAGGERING how much it applies to my coaching style and what it takes to become a great trader!

(And, in this second video here, I review exactly what the “boring old habits” are for traders) Continue reading

Why I Just Checked Myself Into Prison

URGENT: This 50% off holiday DVD sale and these 50% off holiday newsletter sales end TONIGHT as my overwhelmed team and I have catch up on all email questions, so grab the savings ASAP!

As I warned in this tweet:

2016 my New Year’s resolution is to create more millionaire students like this guy and this guy (who now both give webinars to other trading challenge students, the power of community/paying-it-forward) and a few other millionaire students who prefer their privacy so my checking myself into prison right now is my biggest, boldest and weirdest tactic in my pursuit of more millionaire students.

I explained a little in my latest episode of Answerstock posted this morning: Continue reading

I Have A Dream Too

2 years ago I wrote this post about my dreams, and since then not just one or two but several of my trading challenge students have crossed the $1 million profit mark, this hot penny stock trader has passed the $2 million profit mark and more than ever as you can see HERE and HERE, my students are learning to make a few hundred, thousand and tens of thousands of dollars from the low hanging fruit that is the penny stock market.

Sure, sure, thanks to the success of ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’ the world at large only wants to avoid penny stocks, but they forget there are many non-scam penny stocks to trade and even the scams themselves are VERY predictable as you can see in my live trades here.

I just finished this new 34 hour DVD study guide here, which all goes to charity and has now raised over $200,000 in the past month, will help serve as a guide & rule book to all penny stock traders looking to make seven figures from a niche the world previously thought was unpredictable.

Not to diminish the great achievements and vision of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in any way whatsoever, but I too have a dream…

…that many millions of people, not just my trading challenge students, will understand how you can make 30% on your money within 30 minutes like I did here: Continue reading

Why Today Is Different

Today the US markets dropped 2%, the Dow went negative on the year, possibly the start of a long overdue bear market, I made just under $4,000 putting me up 137% on the year and I passed a rather substantial milestone as a trader: Continue reading

The Penny Stock That Killed The Analyst

You’ve heard the song “Video Killed the Radio Star” so you will understand how one penny stock has made a mockery of financial analysts/commentators who are at a loss to describe/research it.

Take a look at the headlines:

Wall St. Journal: “A Social Network With No Members, but a $6 Billion Valuation”

CNBC: “Penny stock soars to $6B, and even the auditor is perplexed

Motley Fool: “The Greatest “Greater Fool” Story of 2014″

MSN Money: “Mysterious penny stock soars, and no one knows why”

CNN Money: “Cynk Technologies stock soars 25,000%. No one knows why” (title has since been adjusted probly due to my interview with them in which I explained EXACTLY why…get excited for this coming week)

Seeking Alpha: “Cynk Technology Is The New Scheme In Town” “Where are the Cops?”

Businessweek: “Cynk Is a Joke, Not Proof of a Bubble”

Bloomberg: Video “What’s Behind Cynk Technologies 24,000% Surge?”

Zerohedge 1st headline: “Market Top? Meet The $1 Billion Company With Zero Revenues” and 2nd story: “Pure Madness: Revenueless, Assetless CYNK Soars Over $5Bn”

Huffington Post: Tech Company That May Not Exist Is Worth $5 Billion

Mashable: The Curious Case of Cynk, an Abandoned Tech Company Now Worth $5 Billion

Daily Mail: “The $5billion tech start up whose stock has gone up 30,000 per cent in ONE MONTH may not even exist”

Those are just 12 out of the 238 stories that have been written in the past few days about CYNK, a third rate penny stock promotion that simply caught early shorts in a squeeze thus creating a solid Supernova pattern that you see here:

cynk promo chart

As I said in an interview with CNBC here late Friday, “Whether or not there is fraudulent activity going on with CYNK—it’s such a fine line. But the promoters will be investigated, they’ll pay a small fine, and the game will go on”.

I also wrote a solid blog post HERE on CYNK and made 2 video lessons:

And that’s the truth from someone who, unlike these charlatans, actually understands the penny stock game — CYNK is a typical stock promotion that went a little further than most due to catching early shorts off-guard, but it’s not the first nor the last…look at some other promotion charts that were much more volatile, and liquid, and NEVER ONCE covered by the media who are only now realizing how exciting these stories can be:


Pump And Dump

lote 20 days remarkable copy



cann crash

Other financial commentators have labeled CYNK as “garbage”, “ludicrous”, “sign of a market top”, “absurd”, “something to avoid entirely”, on and on and on as if CYNK were the devil himself and yet even after the initial hate articles which dropped the stock to $10ish the morning after it closed at $14/share…somehow…yes somehow…evil bad joke CYNK spiked 100%+ over 3 hours from $10ish to $22ish!

Investors everywhere would kill to make 100%+ in a year NEVER in a million years dreaming that it could be accomplished all within a few hours if you have the right penny stock setup.

And that’s the beauty of penny stock trading — it’s not as unpredictable or random or laughable or evil or illegal as everyone thinks, it’s QUITE predictable and repetitive as those who have watched my free video lesson series now know.

The main reason why so many of these commentators and “experts” hate on penny stock is because they don’t understand the rules and it makes them look bad to expose that weakness.

Penny stocks kill analysts/commentators so they try with all their might to get people to avoid them.

But as my booming educational business which is set to pull in $10+ million in 2014, there is demand here and you can’t squash a useful industry even if it is a niche industry because there’s far too many people out there with accounts between $1,000-$50,000 that don’t care AT ALL to make 10-20%/year like all the “experts” strive for, the average trader/investor wants more and to do that they’re willing to take on some additional risk at the hope it might change their lives like it did for this guy:

Additional risk is fine if you have rules and are meticulous, but NOBODY should EVER be comfortable with low odds gambling — Vegas has done too good of a job marketing that bullshit already.

Let me be the voice of reason in a sea of idiots — CYNK is not evil, it’s not garbage, it has nothing to do with a bull or bear market, it shouldn’t be avoided, you shouldn’t hate it, laugh at it or insult it and it’s not even clear if anything illegal happened.

Penny stock promotions ARE legal as long as the promoter disclaims how much they’ve been paid in shares or cash and as you can see from the-far-too-early-Seeking-Alpha expose now laughably calling it overvalued at $2/share before it went up to $22/share just a few days later, some tweets and text messages were sent by wannabe penny stock promoters (who have since gone quiet as they DEFINITELY never meant to spike the stock this much and attract so much media/regulator attention) which got the stock trading in the $2-4/share range in mid and late June.

promoters cynk

Small junk companies and publicly traded shells, which is basically what CYNK was, and their investors who are trapped holding the bag will ALWAYS pay promoters, “contractors”, “consultants”, wannabe investment banks and analysts cash and shares to bring attention to their lowly company/stock in an effort to attract investors.

That small company will then use the increased stock activity/share price to pull off a financing at discount prices (but still inflated prices compared to where the stock was before the promotion) or the investor that paid for the promotion will sell their shares into the sunup aka pump and dump and either way the company and insiders are enriched while it’s the average trader and investor who don’t know how the game works that gets screwed.

If a promoted penny stock sucks in enough short sellers early in the game, those shorts can then be squeezed which creates a Supernova chart pattern as you see above and that’s the ideal time to buy (on the breakout) and short sell (after the Supernova begins to fade)

These are the lessons I teach and what my DVD study guides contain…and I’ve been predicting the ups and downs on stocks like CYNK for 15+ years.

Not one of the 12 articles I highlighted talked about the pump & dump process or a short squeeze, instead preferring to focus on the company characteristics the “experts” actually understand, namely marketcap, revenues, profits/losses, # of employees, company headquarters, SEC filings.

What was so laughable to veteran penny stock traders like me and this guy and the guy behind this great chatroom is that NONE of what the media covered matters in cases like this.

Penny stock pump & dumps could have 0-500 employees, products galore, filings in the right states instead of questionable countries like Belize, 0 to $1 billion in revenues and profits (remember many pumps fake things to make them seem more legit — like the Shaquille O’Neal penny stock pump & dump & Spongetech pump & dumps I exposed and from which I received an endless amount of ignorant hatred.

(Shaq’s lawyer sent me a cease & desist letter but spelled the word egregious incorrectly (newsflash you bozo there’s no “a”) and Spongetech put out a press release saying they were going to sue me for my “lies”, but then they got arrested for fraud as prosecutors said they faked 99% of their sales)

…and still none of that effects the stock price and is a PROPER way to analyze these companies.

The problem is that NOBODY in the financial press and media is qualified to present any meaningful research when it comes to penny stock pump & dumps because they have shunned “the gutter” and don’t understand the rules that DO matter, namely the trading volume, Level 2 indicators, promotion size, promoters, promotion type (twitter/text messages are signs of a wannabe pump instead of the big boys who use hardcopy mailers), float rotation, shares available to short, etc.

It was like pulling teeth to get this video entitled “Inside Penny Stock Manipulation” on and since it was a few years ago those guys can’t even figure out to make the video still work (doesn’t work for me now, but the link is still up there and we exposed the pump in UOMO which then proceeded to drop 99.9% like every other pump I’ve ever exposed)

Just like on CYNK, financial commentators, traders, investors and message board posters of all kinds have hated on me calling my strategy of short selling pump & dumps, “garbage”, “illegal” (it’s not illegal to short penny stocks as Investopedia claimed when I first began teaching, you just need the right broker, see my brokers HERE), “ludicrous”, “something to avoid at all costs” etc. you get the point and yet despite all the criticism I’ve turned $12,415 into $4 million, showing every trade here and several of my top trading challenge students have also become millionaires in just a few short years following my strategy/lessons.

Michael Goode was my first millionaire student in late 2013, now up $1.34 million, see all his trades HERE…and remember he first wrote about me calling me full of BS before giving me a chance and getting rich as a result.

Tim Grittani was my 2nd millionaire student and he’s now turned $1,500 of his own money into $1.81 million in 3.5 years since becoming my student, see all his trades HERE and see him featured on CNN HERE and on FOX with me below:

I also have 2 other millionaire students who don’t want me using their names publicly, which I resent but have to respect…but I also have dozens of students who are well on their way to becoming millionaires mainly shorting pump and dumps like this student who named his son Timur after me who has now turned $2,200 into $243,000, see all his trades here, making him rather wealthy in his home country of Tajikstan…read more about his amazing story HERE.

As I write this post I know nothing will change very quickly, all the “experts” will still be confused/full of hate when the next pump and the pump after that come around and they’ll continue putting down the penny stock game and anyone who partakes, no matter our 60-75% winning percentages and 90%+ winning percentages when we find shares to short of Supernova pumps like CYNK.

(The main limitation with my strategy and the reason why I’ve only made a few million dollars as opposed to several hundred is because sometimes, as in the case with CYNK, there’s no shares to short so even when you know the stock will drop bigtime, you can’t do anything about it other than sing this song:

But as I create more millionaire students and continually correctly identify stocks that will drop 50-60-70-90% within hours and days and show live trades of my short selling and banking on these penny stock pumps like I did HERE, the tide will eventually turn and people with accounts less than $50,000 will realize shorting pump and dumps — and sometimes even buying them if you’re early enough — is not evil, illegal, laughable, ludicrous, absurd…it’s just a very solid low risk strategy (if you follow these rules) that takes advantage of market mechanisms like short squeezes which lead to trade setups far more predictable than the old guessing game of trying to value a company’s stock price.

Penny stocks rob the narrow-minded of actionable trades and kill those who wish to see this niche suffer…there will ALWAYS be pumps like CYNK, the only question is will you be prepared to take advantage of them?
