A few years ago, I learned a really big lesson from a really big mistake.
I used to be this big hotshot trader on the CBOE. I was a market maker for some of the biggest stocks in the world. I had a big ego, and I was making money hand over fist.
I thought I knew everything there was to know about trading. I thought I was invincible.
And then my ego got the better of me.
I took a large position in a stock that the big financial institutions wouldn’t touch with a 10-foot pole.
I thought I was smarter than everyone. I thought this stock was going to the moon and it would take me – and my trading account – with it.
Soon enough I was losing money faster than I was making it. As the trade turned against me, I kept fighting, adding to my position as the stock plummeted. I was spiraling out of control.
Over the course of a few months, I lost half a million dollars on this one position.
I was nearly broke. The life I had built – my fortune… my reputation as a trader… my pride – was crumbling.
I had a meltdown. I called my dad and he told me that I needed to do something to help others to give me some perspective.
I went to Thailand to teach English at a Buddhist monastery.
A few months passed, and something happened.
I had one of those epiphanies you always hear about…
And I realized that I’d been doing everything wrong.
That’s when I turned my biggest mistake into my multimillion-dollar comeback.
When I was on the trading floor, I’d noticed a very specific event that happens nearly every day the markets are open.
What I uncovered, well, I wouldn’t say it’s controversial…
But it does involve insiders trading.
Face it. They’re all doing it. And they’re making TONS of money doing it.
They’re playing by a different set of rules than the rest of us.
So I found a way – a LEGAL way – to spot potential insiders trading their companies’ stock – in real time.
This is an extremely simple and fast-paced way to trade the market.
Focusing on just one pattern that appears between 9:30 and 10:30 am, Monday through Thursday.
These insiders are leaving a trail of breadcrumbs to the biggest fortune in the markets… and they’re doing it right before their investments – coincidentally, and completely out of the blue – soar 100%, 200%, even 500% or more in a matter of days – sometimes hours.
And by shadowing their trades, I cashed in BIG on their moves.
Suddenly, by following this specific pattern, I was making more money than I ever had in my life.
From Nearly Broke to $5 Million Before Age 30
Just two years after I returned from Thailand, I went from nearly broke to a multi-millionaire.
The rush I felt was amazing.
But more importantly, this trading method had set me free.
I only had to “work” about an hour a day, four days a week.
That’s all the time it took for me to build my fortune
And since I wasn’t stuck at a computer all day, I could do whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted, from wherever I wanted – countries all over the world.
The day I learned how to “follow the smart money” was the first day of the rest of my life.
Making 2,000% on one trade… 500% on another, and so on.
I’m not exaggerating when I say that this completely transformed my life.
