I Just Received an Email From a Struggling Trader That Has Inspired a Change. I’m Pumped. Here’s My Guarantee and Yours in Return to Get You in to the Freedom Traders Club.
This is Part Three of the “Freedom Traders” Series – How I Learned to Get Over the Wall and What May Help You.
There are links at the bottom of this post to Part 1 : My Personal Stock Trading Story. How I Blew up Two Accounts and Then Learned How to Trade and Part 2 : Trading Checklist – Rules I Follow Before Triggering.
“To win consistently, a trader has to have a plan (a system) – that contains rules, controls losses (risk) and keeps emotions checked in at the door.”
Okay, so something big happened to me today while working on my charting set-ups for the week. A struggling trader sent me this email;
“Hi Curt I am trading for five years now with little success.I have continued my research which has brought me to compound traders doorstep.I have a decent understanding of the markets but not to the levels needed to trade successfully week in week out.Can I make profits using your live trading room/alerts bundle while taking time to learn your methodology along the way.I am a hard working student who learns quickly.”
WOW, what an email. Something clicked in me. FIVE YEARS! Unbelievable tenacity! And limited results? That should not be so I thought. Okay, but I can relate, I have had my own struggle. So here was my response;
You put 3 months in to our room (if time allows) and if not review daily room videos and pre and post market newsletters and I’ll guarantee you will become a profitable trader. But, you would have to follow the rules. You follow the rules (indicators) and you don’t make money I’ll refund you personally. And… you’d have to send me every entry and exit so I could check that you’re following the rules and preferably send me a daily trade plan (showing how the rules line up with your trade plan). There’s a video from Thursday mid day market review coming out in next 24 hours that explains the rules (indicator set-ups) clearly to follow.
Update: Here’s the video as an example of indicators – chart set-ups (and our next post in the Freedom Traders series will go in depth on the specific indicator set-ups).
So What’s The Big Change? The Realization.
So I realized a problem in my approach. When we first started Compound Trading we knew that we had very sophisticated big data mad scientist math figured out and that we had in fact cracked Wall Street. Yes I know, I know… sounds nuts but we can prove it. Anyway, the point is that this “cracking the code” or better described as cracking what the big trading firms are doing to bring massive returns (the ones that are).
BUT! You first need to understand how to trade the fundamentals. Our mad science stuff does absolutely nothing for the learning trader! The discipline and the know-how (the chart set-ups, the indicators) are key for the learning trader. That’s what first gets the struggling trader over the wall!
So how am I going to pivot to that? Let me explain in short.
Here’s My Pivot… A New Commitment and Format
So all the mad science stuff will continue because frankly we have many large traders and the like that rely on that and that’s now my life’s work. But that doesn’t mean I can’t pivot in that I bring a focus to the learning trader and the fundamental indicators and chart set-ups that cause a trader to win.
So here’s what I am going to do going forward:
- I will be doing premarket chart set-ups (reviewing charting indicators) at 9:00 AM every morning in the room.
- I will be trying to get as many of the chart set-ups for the standard indicators I preach about in my premarket trading plan (can be tough because premarket moves fast). Just getting a premarket report out in time is very hard.
- I will be doing a mid-day chart set-ups review in the room everyday between 12;00 – 1:00 EST. Very specifically looking at the indicators I talk about all the time and specific chart set-ups.
- In my post market report I will carve out and focus on the chart set-ups also.
So in other words, I will start to focus clearly for the learning trader specifically on these in a very detailed way and document the whole process.
And should a struggling trader work with me on it, I’m even gong to guarantee results (of course the trader has to reciprocate some accountability).
Here’s My Guarantee and Yours in Return
I let the cat out of the bag above obviously when I shared the email, but here it is. Sign up for our trading room bundle and print this and post it on your wall above your computer.
My Personal Guarantee
You put 3 months in to our room (if time allows) and if not review daily room videos and pre and post market newsletters and I’ll guarantee you will become a profitable trader. But, you have to follow the rules. You follow the rules (indicators) and you don’t make money I’ll refund you personally. And… you’d have to send me every entry and exit so I could check that you’re following the rules and preferably send me a daily trade plan (showing how the rules line up with your trade plan).
To do this (follow-through with the plan) review these regularly (can be done anytime because we publish all reports and videos of everything):
- Premarket chart set-ups (reviewing charting indicators) done at 9:00 AM every morning in the room.
- Chart set-ups for the standard indicators in premarket trading plan (as may be made available).
- Mid-day chart set-ups review that will be done in the room everyday between 12;00 – 1:00 EST. Very specifically looking at the indicators I talk about all the time and specific chart set-ups.
- Post market report specific to chart set-ups.
- Send me your entries and exits on email firstname.lastname@example.org or by DM so I can review and preferably your trading plan (when you can) in advance of taking a trade for review.
That’s my guarantee to the new trading wanting to learn. It’s a huge commitment on my part and requires yours also!
