The Financial Crisis of 2008 was devastating. The stock market dropped 50%. Your retirement plan was devastated. The housing market suffered the biggest bear market since the Dirty Thirties. Many people, you?, lost their house. Everybody suffered. Companies went bankrupt. Many people, you?, lost their jobs. Banks were shaken. Many went bankrupt. What I just wrote is all true but doesn't really tell the story. The real story is the real suffering that tens of millions of people went through. A friend of mine worked for many years in a construction company. He had built a nice life for himself... Continue reading

I’ve taught thousands and thousands of people how to make money trading. Yet a big percentage never actually trade. They take the time and spend the money to come to my class and then never do anything. This drives me nuts. I know that they will make money if they follow the Rules I teach. But they don’t. So think about it. Let’s say they would make just $10,000 per year for the rest of their life. Let’s say they live 40 more years. That’s $400,000 they will never see! And that doesn’t count any compounding! Lack of confidence is... Continue reading

Hello Trader, The market rallied sharply yesterday. Was that the end of the bear market? I don’t think so. Instead, I think it is what is called a dead cat bounce. Let’s break it down. Note how the market was accelerating to the downside as we went through the week of December 17. It culminated with a sharp down day on Friday on extremely high volume. This was followed on Monday with another sharp down day but on small volume. (Of course volume was light on Monday because it was the day before Christmas.) I believe that Friday/Monday was what...

Fed Chairman Jerome Powell has raised interest rates consistently all year and has signaled another increase in a few weeks. The Fed Funds rate is now 2.25% Are the Fed rate hikes biting? Are they high enough to slow the economy? The job of the Fed is, they say, to take away the punch bowl just as the party gets good. Certainly, the economy has been booming by any measure. I believe that the Fed has almost gotten to the point where they are slowing the economy. Why? Several reasons. The stock market is wobbly. The stock market is a... Continue reading

I love trading options. Here’s one of my secret techniques that I learned as an options market maker. Let’s say you simply want to buy a stock but decide to use an option instead.

Go to an option chain on your favorite stock. What is the price of buying 2 of the .25 delta options versus the price of buying one .50 delta options. Much less!... Continue reading

Here’s several reasons: 1. More leverage 2. Better risk management 3. Lower initial investment 4.

Sorry, I’m not buying it. I’m not a bitcoin maniac. People hype bitcoin as the future of money. They point out: 1. Bitcoin is anonymous 2. Bitcoin is secure 3. Bitcoin is not controlled by any government Sounds good but is completely wrong. Let’s look at each of these reasons behind bitcoin. Bitcoin is anonymous. Can be but governments around the world are saying that it can’t be. Europe in particular is requiring that you have to reveal your identity to own bitcoin. Bitcoin is secure. Actually there are have been billions of dollars of thefts and scams. The dollar... Continue reading

I see traders flip flopping around like a fish on land It is much easier to get somewhere if you have a map. Wandering aimlessly. Flip flopping. That describes many traders, particularly new traders. They get attracted to trading because they think they can make a lot of money (which they can!). But they don’t have a map to get from here to there. I’ve put together a map for you! This mind map is free and you can get it by clicking Here. Don’t keep flip flopping! Go directly to profits! Click Here to get the free Profits Mind... Continue reading

I've been teaching how to trade for 10 years. I’ve seen my students make millions of dollars. I’ve seen people retire early. I’ve seen people quit their jobs and be financially free. But there is one consistent complaint about some of the techniques I teach. It’s boring. And they are right! The technique they are talking about is called Channel Breakout and it is boring. You will often get into a trade and still be in the trade months later. Nothing seems to happen. The trade just drifts along. And then you wake up one day and realize that damn... Continue reading

Having trouble viewing this email? Click here Dear Cheriettt, There is a lot of fakery in the investment training business. I see so many ads for people teaching trading and they are just young whipper snappers. I think they have been trading for about a year. Their experience is very limited. Many of them have never traded in a bear market. But they think their experience is vast and that they know everything. They then sell you a training course or advisory service. Perhaps they tout their amazing track record. Perhaps they bet on the phone and put on the... Continue reading

I have been trading for 47 years. I have read a million books on trading. I have watched a million hours of analysts and portfolio managers talk on TV. And they nearly all say the same things. Buy dips. This is perhaps one of the most constant refrains. You should buy dips. Buy stocks when they go down. They are cheaper! They are on sale! And, if they go down more, you should buy more! Your average purchase price will be lower! Dollar cost average! But I think they are really Ph.D. grads of the George Costanza School of Trading.... Continue reading

“You should never buy options, only sell them.” They then go on to explain that 70-80% of options expire worthless. They point out that professional traders, particularly options market makers, are nearly always net short options. This concept shows a stunning lack of knowledge about options! Let me explain so you don’t fall prey to it. First, their two arguments are correct. But their conclusion is wrong. It is true that the vast majority of options expire worthless. The implication is that you should therefore sell options rather than buy because the vast majority of your trades will be profitable.... Continue reading
