The Difference Between Top Traders and Top Losers

There are traders who can consistently make six figures a week. Yeah I know…that’s pretty crazy right. Want to hear something even crazier? There are traders who do the same things as those huge traders, yet they are losing hundreds or even thousands of dollars a week.

To me that was interesting and also pretty hard to comprehend. I was taught that if you want to become good at something, then you should find someone who is already successful in that field and learn from them if possible. The problem is that people are doing that and still losing.

So you may be wondering why this is and you may also be wondering how to change that. Well I have good news, I will tell you about it in my youtube video. Before I tell you the answers to your questions, however, I want to help you think. See most people think the difference between a good trader and a losing trader is some huge difference, but in reality, trading is more like golf. In golf, the difference in accuracy between a golfer earning $50,000/year and $10,000,000 a year is very very small. The same way, trading difference between these two groups are small and may seem obvious, but it’s what can take you to the next level. So click down below and I hope you enjoy.

Wait! One last thing. I almost forgot to introduce myself. My name is Trav and I invest in stocks, gold, and cryptocurrency. I started this blog because I have been able to make anywhere from 5%-40% a day in profit. To put this in lame terms, I am making what the professionals make a year, every single week. I love helping people so I figured creating a financial blog and YouTube channel would help me to spread my knowledge to others in a super simple way. Sidenote: I write how I talk rather than writing grammatically correct in every instance so I can add more character to my posts and because writing and english are by far my weakest subjects…

Has My Luck Ran Out??

My Relationship With Trading

I have been trading all semester and while it is helping me to buy groceries and pay my rent. I still have a love hate relationship with it. The reason why is because trading is something where you have to continuously be disciplined and on top of your game. Last week I will admit that I got greedy. I wanted to go for all my all time best profit in a day which would have been around $1,000 profit. Instead, however, I ended up with far worse results. Before we get into this though, I would like to welcome the new viewers.

Welcome All New Viewers

Welcome to my blog. If you are new to the blog, my name is Trav and I invest in stocks, gold, and cryptocurrency. I started this blog because I have been able to make anywhere from 5%-40% a day in profit. To put this in lame terms, I am making what the professionals make a year, every single week. I love helping people so I figured creating a financial blog and YouTube channel would help me to spread my knowledge to others in a super simple way. Sidenote: I write how I talk rather than writing grammatically correct in every instance so I can add more character to my posts and because writing and english are by far my weakest subjects…

Why I Think My Luck Ran Out

Now lets hop back into my story about last week’s trading. I have been doing pretty well with trading but I have still been taking my losses along the journey. The reason why is because I know how to trade but there are so many ways to trade that I always want to try out new ways to see if they work better than my current ways. Sometimes I strike gold, and sometimes I strike coal. Last week I struck coal. I ended up losing a little over $1,000 last week which really sucked. I had losing day after losing day. Times like this make me wonder if I have just been extremely lucky in prior weeks. Times like this make me question my skill and all the hard work I have been putting in to learn this skill. Times like this makes me wonder if I am qualified to teach people how to trade. I respect people’s hard earned money and I would feel like a fraud telling them how to use it and then they lose it. Last week was the reason why I titled this post “Has my Luck ran out.”

$1,023 Loss in 1 Week

After going back and looking at my losing trades I realized something however. When I have consecutive losses like this, it’s because I am not following all of my trading rules. If I were following my trading rules I would have only lost $350 last week at the worst and I could have potentially made $500. Last week is gone and there is nothing I can do about it. It still hurts right now but this is a part of being a trader. The good thing about all of this is that I learned from my mistakes and I am taking action. I am going to create a checklist that tells me when I should enter and exit a trade and I am only going to trade when my checklist says so. This is something I have been wanting to do but my success caused me to be lazy and not continuously improve. So this may be a blessing in disguise. Either way, I will be sure to let you know. Remember guys, I will tell you about my wins but I will never shy away from my losses either. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this blog post and if you have every traded and feel/felt the same way I did then just go back and see why you were performing badly and make some type of correction. Just remember not to give up. This road comes with pain and losses but the end destination holds surplus and freedom. See you guys tomorrow. Don’t forget to like this post and subscribe!

What Is Day Trading/How Much Can You Make

This Ain’t My Car…Yet 😉

Welcome New People!

Welcome to my blog. If you are new to the blog, my name is Trav and I invest in stocks, gold, and cryptocurrency. I started this blog because I have been able to make anywhere from 5%-40% a day in profit. To put this in lame terms, I am making what the professionals make a year, every single week. I love helping people so I figured creating a financial blog and YouTube channel would help me to spread my knowledge to others in a super simple way. Sidenote: I write how I talk rather than writing grammatically correct in every instance so I can add more character to my posts and because writing and english are by far my weakest subjects…

What is Trading and How Much Can You Make?

Let’s take it to the beginning. Many people are talking about day trading these days but few people are really saying what it is. They just say things like Forex, Assets, Financial Freedom, and all that. So what I decided to do was explain what it was, how it works, how much money you can make, and a few other questions. This financial video covers a lot but I tried to put it in a way that’s easy to understand. I hope you like it! Click below to watch the video. Oh yeah, one last thing! Subscribe to the blog for more content!

Why You Shouldn’t Day Trade

Back Story

Making money trading is a feeling unlike many others. You can make hundreds of dollars in a matter of minutes. This gives you a feeling that is hard to explain. As I write this, I am in the first class of the day listening to a presentation on entrepreneurship. I have been in class for 45 minutes and I have made $596 dollars. Once you start trading and you see that you can practically print money, you will be hooked. Before you trade however, I want to warn you. It may not be a good idea, and this is why.

Without further ado, I present the video I made on Why You Shouldn’t Trade.

The 3 Reasons Why…

My Most Profitable Pattern

Why Do Patterns Work?

Isn’t investing like gambling? No it’s not. Investing/Trading is using mass psychology to predict where the market is going. You can read mass psychology by looking at patterns. Patterns show mass psychology because a majority of people tend to feel the same strong emotions when a stock is bouncing around in price. People then act upon the price by buying or selling which results in another shift in price. This allows us to predict what they will do based on what they did last time. Today I am going to be showing you guys my favorite and most profitable pattern. 

If you guys are new to trading, make sure you read my other blog post first to find out how to set up your trading account and set up your charts so you can start to spot this pattern as well. To fully understand this video either read my old blog posts or go on youtube and look up the following terms: Resistance and support lines, what are trading candlesticks, what is trading. Lastly, before you get into the video, let me introduce myself to the new people.

How To Spot This Trading Pattern

Getting Started With Trading – Reading Charts

What You Will Learn In Today’s Blog

  • Basics on reading charts
  • Learn what support and resistance is and how to use them to profit
  • Learn what RSI is and how to use it when you trade

Before we get into this blog post I want to welcome you to my blog. If you are new to the blog, my name is Trav and I invest in stocks, gold, and cryptocurrency. I started this blog because I have been able to make anywhere from 5%-40% a day in profit. To put this in lame terms, I am making what the professionals make a year, every single week.

Sidenote: I write how I talk rather than writing grammatically correct in every instance so I can add more character to my posts and because writing and english are by far my weakest subjects…

Basics on Reading Charts

Okay guys so let’s hop straight into this. When it comes to reading chart, you are simply looking to see if you can “read” signs that tell you either buy or sell a stock. When it comes to reading charts, I typically use patterns to know when to trade but I always use these two indicators when trading so I figured we should start here. Welp, let’s get into it.

Trading with Resistance and Support

When it comes to reading charts, one of the most important things you can start with are support and resistance lines. These are simple to understand and help a ton when trading. They tell you what price a stock will most likely change direction at. So if a stock is valued at $100 and keeps increasing in price but you have a resistance line at $110, then once that stock goes to $110, it will probably start going back down. The support lines are the same thing but opposite. So if a stock is worth $100 and you have a resistance at $90, if the stock is going down, and it goes down to $90 it will then probably start to go up in price after that.

So why is that important? It’s important because if I buy a stock for $100, I am going to sell it at $110 and take my profit because the stock might crash after that. When it comes to resistance, if I see a stock falling in price I buy at the $90 price because it has a resistance there. Below is a video of a guy explaining the point I am trying to demonstrate. Eventually I will have my own videos but I am working on getting a nice set up right now so give me some time. 

Trading with RSI

The RSI is another indicator, or sign, that indicates whether we should buy or sell a stock. When you use this along with the support and resistance lines, you will find yourself starting to have a good idea of when to buy or sell a stock. Wait until both are telling you to sell before you sell, and wait until they both tell you to buy before you buy. Below is a video explaining what the RSI is and how to use it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7nVrdpxYbY&t=91s

This should help you with RSI

Wrapping it Up

Well guys these are two easy ways you can predict what’s going to happen next in the market. I hope you guys enjoyed this. If there is anything you do not understand you can look it up on youtube or send me a message on instagram @TheeDailyTrader, we currently have 35 followers as we are a new profile. I hope you guys are starting to see that when you pair the right things together trading can be simple. Not easy, but simple. See you in a next time.

Getting Started With Trading (Part 1)

Getting Started With Trading

Wow…Can I get a drumroll. This is the moment we have all been waiting for. An easy explanation on how to really get started trading. I want to go into detail on this subject to make it as easy to follow so I am going to break this down into 3 blog posts. 

  1. This blog: I will explain what two apps to get and what website I use to know when to trade. I will help you guys set up an account on both apps and I will show you how I use the website, ‘Trading View’, to predict what the market will do in the future.
  2. I will teach you the basics on how to use to understand the charts on ‘Trading View’ so you can start trading with fake money. This will have an emphasis on trading commodities and cryptocurrency. 
  3. I will teach you different ways of reading the charts on ‘Trading View’  so you can swing trade which is investing in stocks and holding them for a couple weeks while you go about your life and then selling them for a profit. This will have an emphasis on trading stocks.

Before we get into this blog post I want to welcome you to my blog. If you are new to the blog, my name is Trav and I invest in stocks, gold, and cryptocurrency. I started this blog because I have been able to make anywhere from 5%-40% a day in profit. To put this in lame terms, I am making what the professionals make a year, every single week. I love helping people so I figured creating a financial blog and YouTube channel would help me to spread my knowledge to others in a super simple way. Sidenote: I write how I talk rather than writing grammatically correct in every instance so I can add more character to my posts and because writing and english are by far my weakest subjects…

The Two Apps

When I first downloaded these two apps, I had no idea where it would lead me. I’m going to be honest, I was skeptical and for some reason a little nervous. Maybe I was nervous because I heard how 90 percent of traders lose money and how 80 percent of traders quit within 2 years. It was at that moment that I had to realize, like most people, I was ready to make money but not ready to take the time to learn. So I want to tell you guys something. At the beginning, if you are just getting started, you will most likely lose money. This is normal and you don’t have to lose real money. You can lose while you practice with fake money. Once you start winning consistently, that’s when we can take it to the real money trading. Now let me teach you how. Go to your app store and get ready to get the two apps.

  • MetaTrader 4 (The app we talked about in last weeks blog)
  • Trading View (I rather you just go to the website on your laptop for simplicity)

Setting Up MetaTrader 4 App

Follow the steps below and you will be set up in no time.

  • Go online (on your computer) to KOT4X.com and click sign up. They should send you an email with your login information. 
  • Now leave your computer and go to your phone.
  • Open up your app. You should be at a blank screen like shown below. 
  • Click on the settings tab on the bottom right.
  • Click on the top tab above “New Account”
  • Click on the plus sign in the top right.
  • For now click on “Open Demo Account”
  • Type in the search bar KOT because they will be your broker.
  • Click KOT – Demo and sign in if necessary.
  • Change your leverage from 1:500 to 1:100 to lower your risk when you trade and change deposit from $100,000 to whatever is most likely how much you will invest with real money once you get better at trading. Don’t worry all this is fake money and you won’t be charged.
  • Now you hit register at the top right and you are almost ready to go.
  • Go the Quotes page and click the plus sign on the top right and add gold which is under the metal section. XAU is the ticker symbol for gold. This is where you can add cryptocurrency if you want to trade that as well. 

Now you are all set up. To execute your first trade go to the quotes page and click on XAU/USD and hit ‘Trade’. From here you can choose to ‘Sell by Market’ meaning you make money when gold falls in price. Or ‘Buy by Market” meaning you make money when gold rises in price. I am going to go more into detail about this later this week. I am also going to go through all of this again in a video I release on Friday so do not worry if you are a little lost. The most important thing is that you do not give up and you keep trying to learn.

Setting Up Trading View

Trading view is as simple as going to Tradingview.com and creating a free account. I do not recommend paying for the monthly upgraded account until you are making a good amount of money. Even though I am now making money neither me nor the people I trade with have a premium account, so do not feel like you are missing out. Once you have an account play around with the site and familiarize yourself with it a little bit. If you do not know how to read charts. No worries, that is coming soon.

Well thank you guys for coming back for another blog. I hope you learned something but if you are still lost, do not worry. I will go over everything again in the video that will be released later this week. Also if you are an experienced investor/trader and want to learn more about sharpening your skills. Learning more about how to enter the market at the perfect time, do not worry I will be posting every Wednesday for my more experienced crowd starting next Wednesday.

What App Should I Use To Invest With

Robinhood Vs Acorns Vs

MetaTrader 4

What You Will Learn In Today’s Blog

  2. What are the differences between these apps
  3. Which one you should use based on your goals
  4. How I make so much money in the markets

Answers To Last Week’s Questions

Hey guys, if you are new to the blog, my name is Trav and I invest in stocks, gold, and cryptocurrency. I started this blog because I have been able to make anywhere from 5%-40% a day in profit. To put this in lame terms, I am making what the professionals make a year, every single week. I love helping people so I figured creating a financial blog and YouTube channel would help me to spread my knowledge to others in a super simple way. Sidenote: I write how I talk rather than writing grammatically correct in every instance so I can add more character to my posts and because writing and english are by far my weakest subjects…

Anyways… So last blog I talked about the questions you guys most likely have, which were: What in the world am I investing in that is allowing me to get these 40% returns in a day, am I rich, is this a scam, and how long have I been learning how to trade. So I am going to answer these but I am also going to tell you guys what App or Platform I use to invest or trade. There are a lot of platforms these days and some are for sure better than others. Today I will talk about Robinhood, Acorns, and MetaTrader 4. So let me answer your questions and then we will hop into the trading apps.

I am investing in commodities such as silver and Gold, Stocks like Facebook and Amazon, and crypto currencies such as XRP and Bitcoin. Now I have made probably 95% of my major profits from Gold and I have had about 95% of my significant losses come from cryptocurrencies as of September 6th. I will not stop investing in cryptocurrencies however, as we are in an abusive relationship right now because I know that once I tame that beast like I have tamed Gold and blue chip stocks I am going to be unstoppable. I digress… Now I would like to let you know that I do not simply buy and sell these. That would take me years to make the profits I am looking for. Instead I trade using leverage, meaning every one dollar I invest gets matched by a broker with 100 dollars. This means I reap the rewards of 100 dollars invested but I also can lose as if I had 100 dollars invested. If you are confused. That’s normal… I learned the financial industry takes pride in confusing people so the average person does not learn how to do what I am doing. So do yourself a favor and just look up “what is leveraged trading,” after you finish today’s blog and read until you understand it. Or just check out this youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PeJoJKGNP4 . You may also be wondering if I am rich.

What leverage looks like in a picture.

If you are wondering if I am rich I will let you know now, I am far from it. I have been trading stocks and commodities for some time but I just discovered this 100 to 1 leverage a few months ago so I have been slowly refining my skills as a trader over that time. Will I be well off a year from now? Most likely considering right now I am making enough to cover my rent, my car note, and all extracurricular activities without asking my parents for any type of assistance and I just started trading a few months ago. Let’s now answer your next main question, ‘Is it a scam?’

How I look going to school when I know i’m going to be an entrepreneur

Obviously if I am creating a blog, instagram, and youtube channel with my face all over all of them, I am not interested in running a scam. Well either that, or I am really bad at concealing my identity. What I am doing is simply leveraging my money to make large amounts of profit. The income you make from trading is taxed as if it you had you own small business. I do want to put a message out here though. I am not a part of ANY trading group that does MLM. These companies typically charge you $100-$200/month to teach you how to trade and be a part of their group chats. A popular one is iMarketsLive which is frequently called a pyramid scheme. I would consider myself financially literate, however, I have done little to no research on that company so I can not say whether they are or they are not running a pyramid scheme. If you want me to dig and find out I can but that’s that on that. Lastly, all the tools I use to trade are free and cost $0 per month to use and $0 to set up.


These are some of the main questions I feel as though people would have. If you have anymore questions send me a DM on instagram. I will be posting every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Also in case you are confused about what this blog is. It’s a blog about getting started as a trader. I am still just starting to experience all the beautiful benefits of being a day trader, but it’s changing my life already so I plan on sharing what I have learned so hopefully other people can experience this lifestyle as well, or pursue their passions without having to worry about where their next meal is coming from. I see this as a place where a family is built. A place where everyone belongs no matter what your background is or what you look life. Follow me on instagram @TheeDailyTrader to join the family and see extra visuals that go with every blog post.  Ok now let’s get to the part a lot of you guys have been waiting for… what app or platform should you use to trade?

Trading Apps and Which One is For You

I am not just a college student who makes money trading. I have also interned with big financial companies like Fidelity Investments, who control over 7 trillion dollars in assets, and PNC Bank, who control 380 billion dollars worth of assets. So I did research on different investment apps. What I learned is that when considering which app to use you have to ask yourself these three questions.

  1. Do you want to have a passive investment app or active investment app. (Passive is where you put money into an account and it slowly grows over the year with you doing little to nothing. Active is where you buy and sell on a frequent basis, which is what I do.)
  2. Do you want to trade with leverage? (Do you want to speed up your results. This means you may win bigger but you can also lose bigger, either way you get your results faster.) 
  3. Are you disciplined enough to invest more money every month without someone reminding you.

Acorns is best for someone who wants to have a passive investment app without leverage. This is also good for the person who does not want to think about putting money in investments. Acorns is an app that will automatically pick what your money goes into based on a short survey. They also round up all of your purchases so you can have money automatically getting invested throughout the month, which allows a person  to invest without thinking about it. This may be an attractive option for someone just getting into investing but there are two main downsides to choosing Acorns. Number one is acorn charges anywhere from $1 to $3 depending on what features you want. If you want all the features they have to offer then you will pay $3 a month but you will also get a checking account with them and a debit card. The fees may not seem like a lot but if you are investing small amounts of money (Less than $250/month) then this is probably not the best option for you because the fees will eat up a significant amount of your profit (and add a significant amount to your loss if you lose money). This does not apply to college students however, as Acorns has a program that allows college students to use the $1/month option for free. The second problem is you are choosing to stay uninformed on how to maximize your money. This is convenient but it pushes you further away from taking the necessary steps to learn about stocks and commodities. So overall, this is not my personal favorite but if you think this is for you then more power to you.

Acorns Trading App

Robinhood. Robinhood is an investing app that allows you to buy and sell stock without any fees. That fact that there are no fees warms my heart because I hate paying fees of all sorts. Robinhood is good for a person who wants a mixture between passive and active. With robinhood some people buy different stocks and let them sit and grow while others use robinhood to buy and sell stocks on a daily basis. Robinhood also allows you to choose if you want leverage via their program called ‘Robinhood Gold’ (the leverage trading on robinhood unfortunately comes with a fee). Robinhood also gives you the option of automatically investing money on a monthly basis, so you don’t have to remember to deposit money. Overall robinhood is in the middle ground of every question, making it a very hybrid app. I would consider robinhood easy to use and an overall good app. There are some cons for robinhood though of course. Number one is if you want to buy and sell stocks in the same day (which arguably allows you to make the most profit out of any other trading style) you can only make 3 day trades a week unless you have over $25,000 in your instant or gold account. A day trade is where you buy a stock and sell it the same day. Another flaw is even if you use their leverage it’s only for stocks that are not very volatile (stocks that fluctuate in price very sporadically). This meant that you can not use leverage when trying to buy weed stocks. My personal opinion is that robinhood is a great app if you want to make a little money here and there. 

Lastly we have MetaTrader 4. This app is for the person who wants to have an active with the ability to trade with high leverage to maximize profits. The money that you make from this app should be significant enough to where you only have to make an investment if you want to start trading with a bigger amount of money. This app is for sure more confusing when getting started but once you get the hang of it you will understand that it’s set up in the most simple way possible while also allowing you to do so much. This app overall is my favorite (but I am bias considering I am making more money on this app then the other two combined). This app allows you to put in money and take out your profits every day/week/month while still having money to trade with. This app is just an app but to trade you need a broker. So after getting the app you have to find a broker online, using your computer. You then make an account on the brokers website and then you go back into the app, select your broker and input your login information into the app. Then you are ready to either trade with real money or practice with a demo account which is just fake money but real stock and commodities. Now I understand this seems confusing but this has the highest potential for profit out of all these apps in my opinion so the next blog post will be specifically on how to set up the metatrader app, what broker I use, and how to actually get started trading with fake money so you guys can practice. I will be including a youtube video with that blog because I know it may help to also get a video visual. Now let’s talk about the cons of this app. Number one is it’s harder to use in the beginning but as I said I will be walking you through that in two days. The other con is, because you are using leverage you have the possibility of losing money faster, but that comes from not knowing what you are doing and I will teach you how to know what you are doing. So overall I like this app because it gives people the opportunity to make as much as our hearts desire and skill sets let us acquire.

MetaTrader 4 App

Reminder of What You Guys Learned

You guys now know more about me because of the questions I answered early in this blog. You guys now know that Acorns is an app that helps you automatically invests but charges a fee, that Robinhood is a user friendly, good place to make a little money trading stocks, and that metatrader 4 is what I use to trade and that it is a trading app that allows you to trade with high leverage. You guys are going to be gurus of the finance industry in no time.

If you guys have any questions or comments, send me a DM on instagram. I hope you guys enjoyed this blog post and will subscribe to get email reminders when I post. Please do me a favor, if you enjoyed this or appreciate me taking the time to educate the masses about finance then please share this blog with a friend. It would mean a lot to me. I will see you guys soon as I tell you what broker I use, answer questions about MetaTrader 4, show you how to set it up and tell you what website I use to see when I should buy and sell the stocks.

My Life Is Getting Ready To Change

I went from broke and in thousands of dollars in debt to still being thousands of dollars in debt (Special thank you to Howard University) but being able to comfortably make a 5% – 40% return on my investment every day. Yes… I said every day. Yesterday I invested $1,000 and made $400 in about an hour and a half. In two weeks I will be keeping $5,000 invested so stay tuned to see how that goes. Before we get into all of that investing stuff however, I want us to go back 16 years to around 2003.

        *Pretend it’s 2003, and I live in what most consider ‘The Ghetto’*

My dad was driving my mom and I to our house after going to the store for groceries when something I will never forget happened. We were on the block we lived on… getting ready to pull into our driveway when a car skirted in front of us and three guys opened fire at our house. Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Shots from a 9mm pistol, Mac 11, and a gun I don’t know the name of cracked into the air like the fireworks of a fourth of July show. We all survived and none of us got hurt but imagine trying to sleep in the house that night as a 5 year old. Imagine walking into your home, a place you should feel safe, but instead you are walking in fear of the shooters returning. Picture seeing bullets lodged into the walls of your favorite places in the house to play with your toys. 

Just knowing that if we would have gotten home 5 minutes earlier, I could have lost either my life or the life of one of my parents was something that was just hard for me to deal with, even at 5. Now I know this is not the typical start to an investment blog but i’m not your typical investor (technically I’m not an investor at all, moreso a trader, but we will get into that later). Nor am I your typical college student. Is it because of my past experiences? Or maybe my deep feeling of gratitude? Or my lack of skepticism? I really do not know, but listen, I am saying all of this to make the point despite your background, you can learn to trade like I have. I have had a rollercoaster of experiences growing up. Some days were hard and unimaginable and others were pure bliss. So before you label me as “lucky in the stock market” or “privileged” I want you to understand that making money in the market is not determined on your upbringing. It is determined by your ability to be resilient and disciplined.

*Fast forwarding back to modern day* 

If you can be resilient and disciplined then you can learn to know exactly when to buy and sell. Just like I did in the screen shot below. Remember I am no better or worse than you and anything that I do in the market, you can learn to do as well.

Now let’s back it up. I am a numbers person so I want to break down the numbers for you guys to explain the amount I am potentially going to be making in comparison to the average investor or investment company. 

The average ROI (definition’s are down below) when someone puts their money into the stock market is 10% annually. So if they invested $100,000 they would make $10,000 a year. Pretty good right? Well what if I told you I make 10% a day? Well… let’s be conservative and use my weekly goal of 10 percent a week. This means if I were to invest $100,000, I would make $40,000 a month, and that is a conservative estimate. So in the words of an african american millennial “I might have just done something(translation located below).” Below shows how much the average person makes from investing a year vs what I am projected to make every month.

If you are like most people you are probably pretty skeptical and are wondering if this is scalable. Well I guess you have to subscribe and keep reading the blogs to find out but I am confident this is. I started with $100 and was making my goal. Then I scaled up to $500, and now $1,000. Next is $5,000, then $10,000, then $25,000, then $100,000. So as of now, it has been scalable. The next things you are probably wondering are, what in the world am I investing in that is allowing me to get these 40% returns in a day, am I rich, is this a scam, and how long have I been learning how to trade. I will answer all these questions in my next blog. So look out for my next post this Wednesday September 11, 2019.
