THIS Is The Secret To Being A Great Trader

THIS Is The Secret To Being A Great Trader

Posted On November 6, 2022 12:46 pm

Dear Reader,

The big secret to being a great trader is, drum roll please…

Having other interests! Seriously, trading can consume your life and burn you out quick, if you let it.

With that said, I was going to do another analysis of the market for you in this email. When I sat down to write I thought to myself…

“Is that REALLY what they need on a Sunday?”

So instead, I decided to do something fun…

You probably already know, but just in case – I live and work in Florida, just across the street from the beach…

I don’t share the city for privacy reasons, but I feel comfortable telling you I can be on the beach in 60 seconds or less.

I love it here, the silly “Florida Man” stories on the Internet notwithstanding.

One of the main reasons is because Florida history is REALLY interesting. From the Spanish searching for the Fountain of Youth to the Cocaine Cowboy period in the 80’s.

That’s why I love Tom Dorsey’s books. The main character, Serge A Storms (a play off ‘storm surge’) is a kind of vigilante anti-hero. Think Dexter or Ray Donovan.

Dorsey weaves Florida history into the books, which makes an already great story even more interesting.

If you are a reader, I can’t recommend Dorsey enough.

Just fair warning, if you start reading his books you might end up living on a beach in Florida and enjoying the weekends people watching at a tiki bar.

Speaking of which… time to pay my local tiki bar a visit.

Have a Great Weekend!


P.S. this week holds a LOT of exciting plans and trade setups for Options360. However, can’t reveal them just yet…

You’ll have to join the hundreds of students of mine and myself to get in on all the action! You can do that by grabbing your trial membership here!

Remember, Options360 is up over 28% YTD. Talk about some beefy returns…

That’s a HUGE, especially in a market that has just about been in free-fall all year, searching for a bottom. Isn’t it time you joined?
