Thanksgiving 2020 \u2026 it\u2019s gonna be a holiday unlike any other. A lot has changed since this time last year. For one, the stock market\u2019s been running around like a turkey with its head cut off pretty much the entire year. Total insanity! For a lot of long-term investors, it\u2019s been awful. Lucky for me, I\u2019m not a penny stock investor. I\u2019m a penny stock trader. The short-term trading strategies I teach students in my Trading Challenge are suitable for any type of market. For my students and I, it\u2019s been a year of record-breaking profits.* Here are some of the things giving me an attitude of gratitude this Thanksgiving 2020\u2026 (*Please note: My results, along with the results of my top students, are far from typical. Individual results will vary. Most traders lose money. My top students and I have the benefit of many years of hard work and dedication. Trading is inherently risky. Do your due diligence and never risk more than you can afford to lose.) Crazy Market Volatility A lot of new traders think they can set \u2014 and nail \u2014 profit goals on a monthly or yearly basis. It doesn\u2019t exactly work like that. Not all years in the stock market are created equal \u2014 you can never know what kind of opportunities will be out there. I talked a lot about this during my recent interview on \u2018The Iced Coffee Hour,\u2019 a podcast hosted by Graham Stephan and Jack Selby \u2026 check it out here on YouTube. Last year, I made about $125K in profits.* This year, my profits are a LOT higher. I\u2019m achingly close to $1 million in profits for 2020 right now* \u2026 You can find every trade documented here. Did I suddenly strike gold or change my strategy? Nope. I\u2019m still all about the singles. It\u2019s just that there have been more opportunities this year than I\u2019ve seen in a long time. I\u2019m taking advantage of them. So are my top students. https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?vBpNKOSaDK4s No matter what kind of market we\u2019re in, there will always be sectors or stocks that spike. That\u2019s proven true this year so far. It\u2019s holding true as we progress into Thanksgiving 2020 and the holidays. It\u2019s all about being prepared. If you haven\u2019t seen it, check out the NO-COST guide I released earlier this year, \u201cThe Volatility Survival Guide.\u201d It\u2019s a must-watch resource for unprecedented times like these... Amazing Student Milestones This year, I was so focused on my students\u2019 milestones that I didn\u2019t even notice when I surpassed $6 million in profits.* There are too many milestones to list all of them right here, so here are just three incredible milestones... $1 Million Profit Milestone* This year, I\u2019ve had two students pass the $1 million milestone. Earlier this year, Roland Wolf officially hit the mark. I\u2019m sure for Thanksgiving 2020, Roland\u2019s grateful for how his dedication has paid off for him. See how I helped him celebrate here. And then there\u2019s my student Jack Kellogg who\u2019s still in his early 20s. He\u2019s come a long way in a relatively short period of time. In June, I was celebrating his $500K milestone. Little did I know that just a few months later he\u2019d be passing the million-dollar profit mark.* This Student\u2019s First Trade for $15K* My new student David hit the ground running. He took a few weeks to study, then decided to jump in the game. Guess what? He made a $15K profit \u2026 on his first-ever trade. Here\u2019s why his winning trade wasn\u2019t a fluke... 6-Figure Profits in 2020* My student Grant may only be 26 years old, but he\u2019s been trading since he was 15. He\u2019s done something really incredible \u2014 he found a way to apply my strategy to long-term investing. Learn more about his trading journey here\u2026 For Thanksgiving 2020, I\u2019m grateful for students like this who learn the rules and process, then work to find their own strategy. Thanksgiving 2020: Unexpected New Opportunities Adaptability is the key to staying in the stock market game for the long haul. I love the penny stock game, but I\u2019m not blind to other opportunities. No, I\u2019m not jumping on the Bitcoin bandwagon or starting to trade options. They\u2019re just not for me. Of course, if you\u2019re interested in options trading, my student Mark Croock has great lessons. But recently, I did discover an opportunity that grabbed my interest. Earlier this year, I noticed my friend and fellow trader Paul Scolardi trading SPACs \u2014 that\u2019s short for special purpose acquisition companies. And his results are impressive. So I was inspired to put $1 million of my own money toward trading SPACs. I just made my first SPAC trade \u2026 I\u2019m excited to see how this emerging method of trading shapes up in the coming months and years. https:\/\/twitter.com\/timothysykes\/status\/1329822162677587968 A New Product Release That Almost Broke the Internet My Thanksgiving 2020 has to include gratitude for this. When my student Matthew Monaco and I started talking about developing a low-cost trading bootcamp, I thought it was a good idea. When we developed it and filmed it, I knew it had real potential to help new traders get a handle on the market... But what I didn\u2019t anticipate when I released the 30-Day Bootcamp to the world was that it would explode like it did. The reviews have been phenomenal. It\u2019s an incredible resource for new traders, but it\u2019s a great refresh for traders who have been at it and might need to brush up on the basics. It\u2019s also a great stepping-stone to the Trading Challenge. The Challenge is a serious program that requires serious dedication. Jaw-Dropping Charitable Contributions I trade to teach, not to become rich. I\u2019m already rich! These days, I donate all my trading profits to charity. I love giving back \u2026 It\u2019s been a big part of my personal development to progress past spending my money on stuff like cars into the world of giving back. I love the work that I do with my charity, Karmagawa. I\u2019ve donated a lot this year. But for Thanksgiving 2020, I\u2019m looking back at one of the year\u2019s most significant donations \u2014 $1 million to the people of Yemen. I couldn\u2019t have done it without my platform and amazing followers. Earlier this year, I put out a call on social media to help me raise money to support the children of war-torn Yemen. And you showed up. Thank you. With the combined efforts of your donations plus efforts by Karmagawa and a personal donation by me, we collectively raised $1 million for the people of Yemen. It was featured in the New York Post \u2026 And it got a mention in my recent Forbes feature, too. Thank you AGAIN to everyone who donated! Tools for Continued Growth and Learning The market\u2019s been insane this year \u2026 to take advantage of it, traders need to do anything and everything possible to get an edge. It\u2019s no secret that I depend on StocksToTrade on a daily basis to scan for the most promising penny stock plays. (Quick disclaimer: I helped design and develop StocksToTrade.) But this year, they\u2019ve come out with some amazing new add-ons that make the already-great screener even better. For instance, the Breaking News Chat has become my lifeline for finding news fast. This is an amazing curated news service run by two stock market pros who scour chat rooms, news outlets, and all the resources at their disposal to find the news related specifically to low-priced stock plays. Another great service they\u2019ve added? Small Cap Rockets. This is an alert system that comes from a place of knowledge and experience featuring finds from Matthew Monaco (yep, the same student who assisted with the 30-Day Challenge), John Papa, and StocksToTrade\u2019s SteadyTrade Team lead trainer Tim Bohen. It\u2019s getting rave reviews. Lucky for you, they\u2019ve got both of these top-notch add-ons available at ridiculous prices for one week only as a massive Black Friday\/Cyber Monday sale.

Thanksgiving 2020 is the perfect time to pause and reflect on what\u2019s been going on this year. Yeah, there have been tough times in 2020. But there\u2019s also so much to be thankful for. The market volatility, the many new emerging sectors, all of the incredible trading resources out there... I\u2019m wishing the best to you and your family this Thanksgiving. I hope you have a stress-free and relaxing holiday. But don\u2019t get too lazy \u2026 take some time over the weekend to study up and be prepared, because I don\u2019t think this hectic market is going anywhere! What are you most thankful for this year? How is your trading different during Thanksgiving 2020 compared to last year?
