Stop Watching Others Bank Triple Digits While You Sit on 10% Returns

When my fishing buddy and I get back to the boat ramp after a great day of landing bigguns, we know someone is going to ask us “How’d ya do?”

Unless we had a rough day and zero catches — which almost never happens — we always say something along the lines of “We got a few”... even if our live well is teaming with four- and five-pounders.

We don’t like to brag. 

Because to a true fisherman, nothing hurts more than catching zero fish and then seeing the other guy catch five fish for a 20-pound bag in the same damn lake. Imagine the look on a father's face after getting skunked and sunburned all day just to watch his little Timmy “ooh” and “ahh” as a freewheeling bachelor like myself hams it up for the camera. 

I’ve been there. It sucked, and it drove me to be a better angler. 

Now, almost every time we say “We got a few,” we mean we got a lot.

The same can be said for investing, when you think about it.

No One Likes Watching the Other Guy (or Gal, or However You Self-Identify) Get Rich

Your neighbor just pulled up in a brand-new luxury SUV, and behind it he’s towing a new 24-foot boat.

You watch, wondering how the heck he could afford that. You both live in the same neighborhood, you make about the same salary, and you both have two kids and a wife.

The difference between you and your neighbor is your portfolios. Sure, you might have some money in the market, but is it really working for you like it is for the other guy?

For instance, my followers just cashed in a 51% gain this Wednesday off the recent volatility in a trade that we only had open for a few weeks' time. In total for 2021, these same readers who mirrored my portfolio saw an average return of 138% per trade. That includes one trade we sold for over a 1,200% gain!

That’s how you upgrade from a nice house to a nice house with a sweet new ride and a boat.

But you can’t do that by just adding to your 401(k) or holding onto a few blue chip stocks

Easily Trade Options for That Big Payday

Trading options isn’t a new idea. Investors have traded options for thousands of years. The first recorded options contracts were created by the Greeks to earn extra income during the olive harvest. In London, options trading began in the early 1700s. Here in the U.S., thanks to Russell Sage, investors have traded options contracts since 1872.

The most common way folks use options is to speculate on stocks. For just a little money — usually only a few hundred bucks — investors can leverage themselves into trade positions where they can control high-priced stocks with minimal risk, all while giving themselves a great chance to cash in for over 200%, 300%, 400%, or more in returns. And that’s off potentially every trade, whether it’s a bull, bear, or sideways market!

That’s why I find it shocking that so many investors are still sitting on the sidelines, unsure if options trading is right for them. Unjustified fears of unlimited risks, the speed of these trades, and the unfamiliar terminology associated with options trading still seem to be major deterrents for many people who could be making a lot of money trading options.

The good news is…

If you want to trade options but are still unsure how to do it (and do it successfully), you’re in luck. I’m currently working on a brand-new service, set to launch in the coming weeks, that will not only give you my best trades and strategies but also teach you how to use the strategies to make your own trades in time.

If you’re looking for the easiest way to score huge gains in the market with only a few hundred dollars to get started and in just a few weeks' time, you’re in the right place. 

More on this soon. Have a great weekend.

To your wealth,
