Here’s How I’m Making Money While I Sleep

Happy Tuesday!

Yesterday, Vivian and I arrived in Germany.

After we landed in Frankfurt, we boarded one of the high-speed trains to go to Leipzig and visit my brother.

As you know, I travel A LOT.

I love traveling! 🙂

And I love spending time with my kids – oh yes… on Friday, we will visit my son Julius who’s spending his summer in Germany working on the CERN project. More about that later.

Anyhow… back in the days, when I started trading, I was focused on DAY TRADING.

And I spend several hours a day sitting in front of the computer, watching quotes and placing trades.

It was “fast and furious”

I often opened and closed a trade within less than a minute and made hundreds of dollars.

It was great – BUT…. when day trading, you need multiple screens, a super fast and reliable internet connection, and several hours a day.

So as you can imagine, THIS is getting challenging when traveling.

That’s why I focused on a SIMPLER way to trade

As you know, these days, I’m SWING TRADING stocks and options.

This made my life much easier:

  • I only need 30 minutes per day – sometimes even less
  • I don’t need multiple monitors and
  • I can use the crappiest internet connection and still place trades – YES, even on a plane where you have the worst connection ever.

And YES:

I am making money while I sleep 🙂

Here’s how:

  1. When trading “The Wheel” strategy, I’m selling options.

    This means that time decay is working in my favor:
    Every day – actually: every hour! – the option loses value.

    And since I sold the option and need to buy it back cheaper, THIS is working in my favor.
  2. Immediately after selling an option, I place an order to buy it back at 90% of the max profit.

    This order is sitting in the market and works for me, even when I’m not in front of my computer.

And that’s what happened yesterday:

While I was on the high-speed train, I connected to the slow Wifi, opened my trading platform, and glanced at my open positions.

Everything is going VERY well, so I closed the computer again and watched the world fly by at 180 mph.

Eventually, I got tired and I took a nap.

When I woke up from the nap, I saw a notification that my FedEx (FDX) trade closed at 90% of max profits.

That was a trade that I opened on Thursday!
(I told you about it on the weekend when I sent you an email with all my trades from last week, remember?

And just 4 days later,
I closed the trade at 90% of the max profits!

How’s that for making money while I sleep?
(Well, technically “napping” – but you get the idea :-))

THIS style of trading is perfect for my lifestyle.

After all, I am trading to have FREEDOM and not be glued to the computer!

Alright, time to head over to my brother for some GREAT German breakfast!

Oh, and have I already told you about “Sunny”?
Well, this blog is getting long, so I’ll do that tomorrow.

Talk soon,

PS: I couldn’t trade the way I do without the PowerX Optimizer. THAT tool is a game-changer for me!
