Yesterday in the trade room we traded URBAN OUTFITTERS and had them going south on a beat. They did. This morning it is rebounding. Our main trade TCS we had originally as a long play on a beat, BUT we did did reversal on latest intell and posted it a few hours before release. We sold it short for a 16% profit win… This morning it is rebounding and we are riding it long. How did we know? It’s all in the magic sauce.
Today we trade GUESS? (GES). With double digit jump zone moves.
Look at those jump zones. 30% move last quarter. That’s amazing. Lets get the direction dialed in. Jump Report will be published in a few hours… click below to download.
Another awesome week of Jump trades. 100% wins. Here is what happened…
Monday – Rent-a-Center (RCII) 9%
Tuesday – YUM China (YUMC) 15.5%
Wednesday – FitBit (FIT) 11%
Thursday – GoPro (GPRO) 10.6
Plus a few snap trades like Pandora (P) which was an easy 22% profit take this morning. Yep you read that right – 22%. (extra sauce for the goose).
90% of the trading game is getting the direction right. Which is what we do. And we do it extremely well. The best in the world in fact. (see performance sheet). How is that for bragging.
However that doesn’t mean you made the same profit we did.
You have be able (as a self-directed trader) to execute the trading data and know not only how to enter a trade – but exit correctly for maximum profit. This is where most traders get stuck. Paralyzed by fear trading a volatile event is a real issue. You might have done 3 good trades in a row and the last trade you lose on it and it scares the hell out of you… so you hold back on the next trade. You get a trade jump like Pandora (P) last night and the move is 20% which would not only make up any loss, but add extreme profit to the bottom line.
This is the reason people lose money. Like I’ve said a thousand times – we have traders making enough profit each month to buy a new Mercedes. And others with the exact same data losing their ass. How is this possible? Well, its not just about getting the direction right. Its about execution which is true in any business. And its not just a lack of skill which is a biggie… its your personal psychology. You may think you’re a “trader” because you have a brokerage account and read a book on options, but you actually think like an “investor” and cannot stomach losses – and you have not realized on a deep unconscious level that losses are just part of game.
The super successful traders… (the ones who make all the money in this biz) know its a hit or miss game. They are not bothered by losses, because they know how to mitigate them and manage risk. The secret to all of this – is having an edge and executing that edge – and not letting your emotions interfere with it. Treat the entire process like a business, control your emotions and you can make a lot of money. If you are gambling with this system – or any other system, you eventually WILL LOSE YOUR SHIRT.
OK – so for those of you that want to do this – I mean you really get it and understand what I just said, and realize StockJumpers is a true trading edge and not marketing b.s. – here is how can you overcome the above and make a ton of money with our system, but not have to spend 5 years learning the game.
In a word… STOCKJUMPERS AUT0-TRADING SYSTEM
We are putting the final touches on a new program that will be available June 1st where you can have a professional trader execute 100% of the trades (you still have full control of your account and can accept or reject the trade – or go on full auto-pilot). The program will be set up like a Hedge Fund and we will have a hurdle rate… probably 5% a month… Yes, you read that right. The fund will do 5% a month PROFIT – or no fee. And its YOUR fund. You manage it. And it can trade within your retirement account. Pretty cool. And it solves the personal psychology issue.
So the question is why doesn’t StockJumpers just do a real hedge fund and blow the doors off Wall Street. Well we are. But its for Accredited Investors only. So you need at least 2 million in the bank to participate and a minimum ante into the pot of 250k. StockJumper’s Partners Fund is in the making and once the capital raise is complete – we will be changing the rules in the Alternative Investment biz.
More news to come next week and how YOUR personal self-managed Hedge Fund will work.

PS – We just posted two NEW trading signals for our Investors Club members and closed our Gold miner trade. Man that is some easy passive income. Up 270% since October.
Its not about intelligence. Its about psychology.
Most traders THINK they are traders, but in actuality they are not. They are investors. They buy a stock and hope it will go up and just because they have a brokerage account and read a book… they think that makes them a trader. In these volatile markets… that’s just crazy.
Would you hire a surgeon to operate on you without any training no matter how many books he read? Of course not. Then why on earth would you risk all your money trading without deep experience and knowing exactly what you are doing? People do it everyday… and when they lose their shirt who do they blame? Usually not themselves. I guess that’s the human way.
The first step in success – is being honest with yourself. About your personal limitations and also having a clear and unambiguous plan for success.
The second step is getting the resources to make it happen. Trading requires capital. Money that you can afford to lose. If you have a learning curve – plan to lose some of it and trade small – while you learn the basics.
The third step is installing what I call The Trader’s Reflex. What’s that? If you jump in the water and were trained to swim – your reflex kicks in… you automatically know what to do and don’t have to think about it. That’s what all the great traders have developed. A Trader’s Reflex. When they look at a chart they have a basic instinct if its overbought or oversold, understand what might happen should the release numbers be a beat or a miss and have in their mind how things “might” unfold. They know the exit before they ever even walk in the door.
The fourth step is is simply creating a trading plan. Its executing your strategy. Whether that’s StockJumpers or your own. No business operates without a plan. Why would trading be any different. But you would be surprised how many idiots think they are trading – and have no plan at all. Okay, more money to take from them I guess. Trading is a ZERO SUM GAME. For every loser there is a winner. Which side do you want to be on.
And finally the fifth step and perhaps the most important – RISK MANAGEMENT. You will never get 100% of the trades right… so you have to have a plan to mitigate losses and cut the losers and know when and how to do that. This is the key winning point for the pro’s. They don’t get upset with a bad trade. They mitigate it or cut and run. Its all part of the game. Amateurs.. and I have met thousands via StockJumpers (while not a ton of pro’s) let fear be the prevailing emotion and get out at exactly the wrong time and get emotionally wrapped around the axle. Paralyzed by fear or motivated by greed… they make the most stupid mistakes possible – and again blame the market, their broker or us for their stupidity. It’s human I guess. But not correcting this will get you killed off quick as a trader.
This is as simple and straightforward as it gets. If you can do the above, AND learn the game (by trading small for 90 days) while you master the nuances of trading “jumpers” – you just might make it. If you are missing any of the above, and don’t have years of experience as a “real” trader… best not to even sign up. It’s OK – we are doing just fine without you.
