Busting The Wall Street Myth

You do not need a lot of money to make money.

Wall Street Suits prey on the misinformed. It fuels their ego and their wallets when we convince ourselves that we need substantial capital up front, or, even worse, that investing takes such an exorbitant amount of time that only the Suits themselves could possibly manage it… Ahem. WRONG.

You do not

need to accumulate large sums of excess capital to make investment gains.

You do not

need to spend hours every week teaching yourself how to day-trade to profit
in the short term.

You do not

need to fall victim to questionable fee schedules and archaic financial advisory services to secure added savings.

You can

make and enjoy extra income now, not only for when you retire.

Frequently Asked Questions

An Option contract is an agreement to enter a 0-sum game with the entity on the other side of the contract. Specifically, an Option contract gives the purchaser the right to buy or sell stock when it is advantageous to them without being obligated to trade the stock when it isn’t favorable to them. A Call Option contract gives the purchaser the right to buy 100 shares of stock at the strike price from the Call Option writer, and a Call purchaser wants the underlying stock value to rise. A Put Option contract gives the purchaser the right to sell 100 shares of stock at the strike price to the Call Option writer, and a Put purchaser wants the underlying stock value to fall.

Although you can enter a single trade with less than $1,000, we strongly recommend you start with $3,000 to be able to take advantage of the diversification strategies that we teach.

Many financial firms have a list of securities that you cannot transact. You can speak with your Human Resources department for an approved list of securities you can transact. If necessary, you can clear your trades before you enter them each week.

Some of the most popular brokerage houses are Robinhood, Charles Schwab, TD Ameritrade and Fidelity, but there are plenty to choose from: https://www.nerdwallet.com/best/investing/options-trading-brokers.

Not at all. Members have access to our robust Trading Tutorial Library, filled with educational content for both beginners and more-advanced traders. We provide exact visuals of the trade contract information we will be entering and offer a private trading chat platform on entry and exit days to provide live updates on strategies we use to profit, and quickly answer any questions you may have about executing trades.

We advise all subscribers opt-in to our discord channel for added convenience in receiving market updates. We also suggest that you download your custodian’s mobile application to your phone or tablet for on-the-go access to your account. If you do not have the time to exit during a suggested trading window, we advise specific entry and exit limit orders during your initial set-up Friday, so you can set it and truly forget it and still collect profits.

We suggest using limit orders because they help you to stick to our strategy, and they also allow you to go about your day without needing to watch the market to perfectly time your entry and exit. Once you’re more comfortable trading, and if you have the time, there is no need to use them.

When you purchase an option contract it cannot be exercised against you. Our basic strategies don’t involve shorting option contracts, only purchasing them so if you follow our basic strategies then the option can’t be exercised against you.

In order to create a brokerage account you must link it to a bank account. You can send your profits to your bank account three days after you close your last trade.

You don’t have to hold options contracts to expiration. If you purchased the option contract then you can sell it to close your position at any time.

Our basic strategies involve purchasing option contracts. If you follow our basic strategies, then you can never lose more than your investment amount.

I try to select the stocks that are most likely to gap from Friday to Monday based on historical price movements, fundamental valuation analysis, and upcoming news events. Each trade has an entry and exit window based around the data and timing of these events.

If you have access to a brokerage that allows you to trade on the United States Stock Exchanges then you can utilize the strategies we teach in The Weekend Trade™.

It is important that you talk with a licensed Certified Public Accountant, or CPA, about your specific tax situation. If your trading income brings you to a higher tax bracket, your income earned in lower tax brackets will not be taxed differently. Our trades result in Short-Term Capital Gains taxes when they are profitable. Your brokerage will provide all tax documentation by January 31 each year, and a CPA can help you file your taxes if you need more help.
