We’re Headed to LA for Our First Regional Workshop

Dear Traders,

Today was an amazing day as a day trader in the market. Despite all the indexes being negative for the day in a big way, Brian and I were able to take advantage of some very volatile moves in the market, including on tickers such as BBBY, TSLA, and TQQQ. Please take the time to watch our recap here, where you can see how we had excellent gains despite a very weak market.

Brian, Ardi, and I are currently at the airport, awaiting our flight to Los Angeles for this weekend’s BBT West Coast workshop. We’re very excited to introduce this new meetup format where, instead of just socializing, the team will also be presenting about different aspects of trading and the market. We have a full day of discussions and presentations planned on various topics ranging from the value of having mentors and trading buddies to current market dynamics and trading in a bear market. We were able to get a slightly larger room than we originally had and therefore can accommodate a few more traders. If you’re interested in coming but still haven’t purchased a ticket, you can do so here.

In other news…

While I had a great day trading and what just about anybody would consider a good day’s pay, I still had a good amount of FOMO when I missed trading OXY. Over the last several months, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway has been accumulating a stake in the oil producer that has grown little by little, driving the stock price upward over the last several months. Today, Berkshire Hathaway received approval to buy up to 50% of their common stock. This announcement helped drive their stock from the opening price of around $64 to well over $71 by the end of the day. You can’t catch them all, but I sure do wish I would have been able to trade this one.

To your success,

PS: The Fall 2022 Peak Capital Trading Boot Camp is starting on September 6th and we still have a few spots remaining. If you’re interested in participating and working closely with the team to refine your trading and build a TradeBook, you will find more information here. The seats are filling up fast and so I urge you to sign up soon.
