It’s True: 98% of Traders Make Less Than Minimum Wage

Corona Del Mar, CA

Howdy Friend!

According to a recent study cited by Bloomberg, 98% of traders made less than minimum wage.

They tracked 1551 short-term traders for about a year.

Only a half a percent made more than a bank teller (yes, 0.5%).

According to the Wall Street Journal, they estimate 10 million new brokerage accounts were opened in 2020...a record.

I'm afraid that 9.8 million of them are going to lose money to the small fraction of folks that know how to trade. Boosting this argument, Citadel just made $6.7 billion last year. A new record for them as well.


They're a high frequency trading firm, so they skim pennies off your orders.

People don't realize that brokers like Robinhood, TradeStation, Etrade, TD Ameritrade, Schwab, and many more sell your orders to firms like Citadel.

Those "free" commissions aren't free are they? I guarantee only a fraction of those 10 million new traders know this.

And meme stocks will be history sooner than you think. And those coin tweets from Elon? Something we'll joke about years from now.

Now it might seem like I'm talking people out of trading...I'm not.

You see, it's likely that 50,000 of those new traders will not only be successful, they will be wildly successful. The roadmap for trading success is amazingly simple: Look at who's making tons of money, and do what they do.

Well, I just mentioned Citadel. They just made $6.7 billion using computerized trading and A.I. Li Deng is their new Chief A.I Officer according to LinkedIn.

Those pennies they get from your orders sure add up don't they?

Here's a list of the top performing hedge fund managers:

What do they have in common? 6 out of 10 use A.I. That's really the big honkin' clue that millions of new traders are going to overlook.

What does the A.I typically do? It creates trading strategies. And then the trader follows its buy and sell signals. Not too complicated right?

Some say that trading is a psychological game...that it's all in your head.

Hog wash.

The Turtle Traders proved that was nonsense back in the 80's. Richard and Bill took people from all walks of life, and they made hundreds of millions.

If you know the rules to a strategy, and you know it makes money, and you know the win percentage, and you know how bad draw downs can be, VAST swaths of traders will follow it. You get into trouble when you don't have a rigorously researched plan of attack.

Abraham Lincoln once said, "Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe."

Those 98% that make less than minimum wage aren't sharpening their axe are they?

P.S. If you're looking for a proven 90.1% win rate, you can copy and paste a single line of code and get your trading on track. That single line of code has a 90.1% win rate, with 4,871 trades over the past 18 years as proof. Without this line of code, most traders are lucky to win half the time.

With this line of code, you could be looking at 9 out of 10 winning trades. That's nearly 100% winners.
