“JPMorgan’s profit spikes 155% as US economy booms.” “Goldman’s earnings blow past estimates” These were just a couple of the headlines blasted across financial media sites today after this morning’s earnings reports. But what if I told you these earnings were actually pretty “meh?

Impact Money Is Pouring into This 20-Cent Walmart Trade

When to Expect the Next Vaccine Stock Jump

Yesterday, I pulled an audible. I was supposed to talk about Q2 earnings. But when I powered up my computer in the morning, everything was in the red. So I thought, screw earnings. I wanted to make sure no one at Profit Takeover was panic-selling.

First thing’s first – yesterday, we rolled our SLV calls into August. Our new calls filled at their limit price – but our older position never hit the $0.10 limit I recommended to exit.

How to Follow the Impact Money Straight to Your Next Profit

Traders spend a lot of time wondering when to buy a stock – but how about selling it?

Legal Bribes and Crooked Trades – The Truth Behind “Free” Online Brokers

Commission-free trades aren’t what they seem.
In reality, they’re a way for brokers to accept legal bribes. Bribes so large that they can offer you free trading, no sweat.

This Secret Money Pool Has Been Used Exclusively by Prop Desks – Until Now

When I used to work on the floor, I once heard one broker say to another, “the only people dumber than you are your clients.”
That’s what’s really going on behind the scenes. The big money on Wall Street wants you to think you’re clueless without their help. But these guys’ clients weren’t dumb. They were just being kept in the dark.

3 Steps to Taking Over Wall Street

  • Start trading options. Once I started trading options, I never bought a stock again. That was back when options were Wall Street’s game. Today, the game has changed. Individual investors are using options to make big money fast – the kind of money Wall Street doesn’t want you to have your hands on. These are just one of the secret weapons we’ll use to take over the big man.

  • Make your returns asymmetrical. For the first time ever, we have more control than Wall Street. And we can use that control to score cash that is greater than the amount we’re risking. I’m not talking about doubling your money here – putting in $500 and getting $500 out. Your returns will be asymmetrical – meaning what you put in will be 5X, 10X, 100X what you get out. We’re turning hundreds into thousands here.

  • Pay attention to volatility. As trading volume hits new highs, investors like you are single-handedly driving stocks to skyrocket, then free fall, then shoot up again. We’re in a state of permanent volatility that’s permeating the new financial world, and every single trade I tell you about will be based off of it.
