Let me tell you what happened, and discuss 3 lessons on how to learn from mistakes. Here’s what happened. Earlier today I wanted to do a Facebook live and a YouTube Live showing everybody my trading routine, and I planned it out this morning. I had this grand plan.

A Dangerous Trend That Could Affect Your Retirement

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlIXzQR3v0g&feature=youtu.be Today I want to talk about a really dangerous trend that could affect, or for most of you, will affect your retirement. So, I was doing some reading and I came across an article that was on Motley Fool. It's just a few days old and it said, "24% of parents have to put off retirement for this reason. Parents are sacrificing over 18% of their annual income to provide financial support for their grown children." The author of this article said that because of this 24% 1 in 4 parents have to put off retirement. I think this is really interesting because obviously… None of us wants to

Here’s Why 95% of Traders Fail

https://youtu.be/cfVRxGLJ-48 It is said that 95% of traders fail. Is this true? If so, what can you do to not be part of the 95% who fail? I’ve been sharing my experience with trading, what I do, and encouraging others to trade because I believe that trading is a great way to make extra money. Recently, I saw a comment right underneath my video where someone said, "Well, don't even bother because 95% of traders fail. Leave it to the professionals.” Now, first of all, you know me... I wouldn't trust the professionals. What have they done to your account? If you had an IRA or 401K in the past

Boeing Stock Analysis After Crash

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIyo1t7mBrw&t=1s This past weekend I did a Bootcamp in Irvine, California. There were 60 of you learning how I personally trade stocks, options, how I pick the best stocks, how I limit my losses, and also, when I take profits. Talking about limiting the losses, the news today is a Boeing crashed in Ethiopia in Africa, killing all 157 people that were inside it. And this morning, Boeing was down 9%.

Taking Risks in Life - Here's What You Should Know

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mkRRAd6XNg Let’s talk about taking risks in life. There are 3 different types of people in the world when it comes to taking risks.

Meaning that they can tolerate taking risks, it’s okay to take risks every now and then, and they are quite comfortable with it. Type three: people that are risk seekers. They're actively seeking out risks and are the ones that are often doing crazy stunts or just on the kick

Best Advice Ever Given

https://youtu.be/g5OoJm1pbjE I want to talk to you about the best advice ever that I heard this weekend. Here's what happened. My kids have a sailing coach. He does a team meeting every day before the kids go out sailing. And on Sunday morning, Coach Jeff talked to the kids. He was coaching a total of 10 kids including mine. And he said… "Sailing is like everything in life." When you see that somebody else is faster, look what they're doing. Model it. And then, most probably, you will be faster as well. He said this is especially true in sailing, because think about it, all the sailboats in this regatta

Why Financial Freedom is Important

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWNMUXugXa8 What is financial freedom and why is it so important? Why should you pursue it? You see, financial freedom is just one level of freedom. With financial freedom, you get three other levels of freedom. Let’s talk about this. Number 1: You automatically have the freedom of place. This means, you don't have to go to a job. When you wake up in the morning you can do whatever you want, and you can do it wherever you want. Financial freedom automatically gives you the freedom of location, being wherever you want no matter what business you have. For me personally, it’s trading and investing in real estate. I

How to Swing Trade for Beginners

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmNia426uag Swing trading stocks for beginners - what exactly do you need to do? First of all, there's a huge difference between trading and the "buy and hold" approach. When trading, you have a proven system and when swing trading, you're typically holding a stock for 5 to 20 days, so you have a rather short-term horizon. Now on the other hand, when you're following a "buy and hold" approach, you often hold a stock for a month, years or in the case of Warren Buffett, maybe even for decades. Not so with swing trading stocks. Again, swing trading stocks, a short-term approach, following a proven system. But when I

The 4 Things You Need When Trading

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImXX-1h2rL8&feature=youtu.be&inf_contact_key=a3351b6c98343cf78ad0b3650ed897a9 There are 4 things that you need if you want to trade. It doesn't matter whether you want to trade stocks or options, forex or futures. 1. You need money. If you want to trade, you do need money to trade. I personally recommend that you start with $5000 to $10,000. Anything less than that you won't have much fun, and anything more isn’t needed. If you can't make money on a $5,000 or $10,000 account, why do you think that you'll make money on a $100,000 account? Start small and grow big. 2. You need a strategy. You do need a trading strategy that tells you exactly what
