Hello, my name is Mitch King and I am the founder of TradeStocksAmerica.com. Thanks for joining us in your education about how to make money in the stock market. I am so excited to help you in your journey toward financial independence. It is an honor to think that I can have a positive impact in your life.
My first purchase of a stock was when was just out of college and I bought MCIC (MCI Long Distance) at about $8/share in 1979 from a Shearson American Express retail broker. I sold it within a couple of months at $13 and I was hooked from there! Unfortunately the commissions were huge, the spread was outrageous and the broker’s idea of timing was something like... "Yeah, we will get it done sometime today."
Let me tell me what kind of opportunity I think you have today. You now have powerful and inexpensive computers which allow you to get information at high speeds on the internet. Execution of the trades and the reporting of your confirmations come back to you in a few seconds. You have free quotes, free research, free analytical tools (which I will explain how to use), tiny spreads between bid and ask and very low commissions. And now you have me—someone who wants to teach, coach, mentor, encourage and occasionally scold you how to put yourself in a position to make a lot of money.
What I am teaching you in this program are techniques that I have developed and used over the last 15 years and they are very powerful. I developed this program with the intent of teaching people what I wish I could have been taught when I started my full time trading and investing career. I suggest you master just 2 or 3 of them over the next 6-12 months.
Become a dedicated student of the markets and it can pay you huge amounts of money, more than you are probably worth! Just remember getting wealthy will not happen overnight and I caution against the thinking that you can and will in the next 3 weeks. That sort of thinking usually brings out the gambler’s instincts which cause low probability transactions which increase your risk.
I believe in putting the odds heavily in your favor before opening any position. It is the same in the financial markets as well as playing sports. The great athletes all have said that they play the odds and they do it consistently. I've heard interviews from great athletes such as the great golfer Tiger Woods, basketball player Michael Jordan, and the great hockey player Wayne Gretzsky—it is the same theme, play the percentages.
My mission is to help as many people learn techniques that I think have a high probability of making money and doing that over a consistent period of time.
I'd like to help people improve their lifestyle or help them retire earlier with more certainty of financial security. I'd like to empower people to recognize opportunities in the stock market on their own and teach them how to invest in or trade that opportunity.
The biggest lesson I can give you after you learn some trading and investing techniques is controlling your emotions. It is the person who can control their emotions and trade with discipline will reap the most rewards!
"In the financial markets, money always flows from the less educated and less prepared to the most educated and most prepared. If that is not a quote from somebody already, then it is mine. This is a truth in life that can be seen in all businesses, not just in financial markets. Because the stock market is a "closed system" and money only transfers from one investor to another, it makes sense that whoever has the best trading models and executes them the best will take money from other people. You want to learn this process and the money takes care of itself."
Good luck and God bless you and your family!
Mitch King, Founder
