I am writing this email to our community from amid mountain villages in the Himalayas. I am currently in Pokhara, a city west of Kathmandu, Nepal. It is known for being a gateway to the Annapurna Circuit (which I have read recently has often been voted as the best long-distance trek in the world). Flying to Pokhara was beautiful, stunning, and amazing. It was all of those words rolled into one! I was able to see...

I hope all of our members had a very nice long weekend and are ready for a short trading week. With Bitcoin over $50,000, and a volatile blockchain market, we are all in for a treat. We apologize for the website issues last night and this morning, but it is all fixed now. Every Monday, our education team, Carlos, Mike and Kyle, offer an Onboarding and Technology session for new members. Due to the website issues,...

Please note that the market is closed on Monday, February 15, in observance of George Washington's birthday (the Presidents’ Day federal holiday). George Washington, a founding father of the United States, is certainly one of my favorite and most respected historical individuals.

It’s also been reported that Tesla has purchased $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin. Traditional trading has always been based on either fundamental analysis or technical analysis, but as Peter discussed last week with Jack Schwager in the first episode of a new season of Talk with Traders, many...

Dear Trader, As many of you know, Wall Street is on fire and the short squeeze of GameStop ($GME) is now on the desk of the President and the politicians. The White House has announced that they are monitoring the situation and the Senate Banking Committee announced this afternoon that they will be holding a hearing into the matter. What happened? Melvin Capital and Citron Research shorted GameStop (over 120% in short interest) in order to benefit from...

One of my concerns in life is that I will wake up one morning and realize I'm the guy who doesn’t know how to use the latest technology or has never even heard of the newest social app that everyone else is talking about. It’s a fast-paced world and I truly do not want anyone to think of me as a degenerate, uninformed digital illiterate! Part of this of course is related to our business. The...
