Lightning Bolts and Mountain Tops

Dear Traders,

I am writing this email to you as I travel from the southernmost tip of South America (Ushuaia, Argentina) to El Chaltén, a village within Argentina’s Santa Cruz province, which is in the heart of Patagonia.

Over the weekend, I completed the hardest single day Ultramarathon I have done thus far. It was 50 kilometers in length with a 3,100-meter elevation gain (30 miles, 10,000-foot gain). Let me tell you, it tested me to the core! While running the “End of the World” race, I felt weaker than I can recall in any other race and I almost bailed halfway through. However, I remembered that I am inclined to be more of a finisher than a quitter and so I kept moving forward, step by step by step. Just as in life, a trader must persevere through the difficult times to reap the rewards of this profession. Thank you for all the kind thoughts and notes of good luck.

Once I reach Patagonia, I will be climbing Mojon Rojo over the next few days. Unfortunately, I expect the Internet here to be terrible and I sense I will miss being in the chat. I definitely will connect with you next week. From the summit of Mojon Rojo I will be able to view the Monte Fitz Roy massif, an impressive mountain range in Patagonia, on the border between Argentina and Chile. From the pictures that I have seen, I think I will find it to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Be sure to follow me on Twitter and Instagram to share my experiences and catch some of the stunning sights of South America.

Despite the fact that I am away, it does not mean that the learning stops at BBT. The rest of our talented mod team will be covering for me and we are holding a number of important webinars this week. For Tuesday Strategy, please ensure you are in the webinar room at 8pm ET for an in-depth look at Peter’s infamous Lightning Bolt Pattern Strategy. Tomorrow, for Wednesday Psychology, Dr. Kenneth Reid will be discussing how to avoid the trading trance. His webinar also commences at 8pm ET.

After attending Peter’s Lightning Bolt TradeBook webinar, I encourage you to go to, our free live replay simulator, to try trading the strategy yourself. While you are there, don’t forget to sign up for homework assignments from our BBT mods.

To your success,
