#1 skill to 6 figures trading?

Mark here.

If you could learn ONE skill that would make you consistent enough to pull money out of the markets...

Day in and day out...

Bull markets, bear markets, and everything in between...

Do you know what it might be?

It's the ability to PIVOT.

Here's what I mean:

The market is unpredictable.

Everyone knows that.

Now as a Pattern Trader, we look at the patterns and the price action and make a scientifically-based prediction on where we think the market is going.

Up, down or sideways.

But even with the best of intentions and a clear head, things don't always go as planned.

The key is to have the ability to PIVOT when they don't.

As I said, the market is unpredictable.

Especially during volatile times like these.

The market doesn't care about our patterns or our fancy little strategy.

Now we can either huff and puff that it doesn't go our way...

OR we can capitalize on it.

When the market does stuff like this I call it a "counter-trend".

One of my biggest trades ever was during a "counter-trend rally" when BYND (Beyond The Meat) went against the grain.

I made over a million dollars on one trade.

Even when everything was stacked against me.

It's in these micro-moments that we're able to either:

a) be victims of the market or...

b) take advantage of it.

The choice is ours.

But if we want to be successful traders, we MUST have the ability to PIVOT.

To go with the flow and capitalize on these unexpected moves.

It's what differentiates the amateurs from the professionals.

Let me give you a quick example:

The pattern here on USDJPY is as clear as day.

It's been trading within this symmetrical triangle for YEARS.

Like clockwork, it would have this cadence of lower highs.

Every time it bounced, it was lower than the last.

And every time it did I would just short the heck out of it.

There was nothing easier.

Everything considered I thought it would go down further.

That's what I thought, but here's what I do.

I do my analysis and draw the boundaries of what I think will happen.

And then I let the MARKET tell me what it wants to do.

After the years of selling the rallies?

The market has told me where it wants to go using the same patterns and price action I've always used.

I've pivoted my position on USDJPY.

And have been telling our members to buy.

Most likely, it'll be another win for us.

I’ll be the first to admit that this is nuanced.

There’s a lot that goes into making these pivots.

But once you learn the skill? (You can find out how below)

You become anti-fragile.

In your corner,
