So as a trader, I’m always thinking about how little time I have, right?
I’m sure you are, too.
There are only so many hours in a day, and only so many days in a week, and only so many weeks in a year!
Except, this year, we get one more day!
Saturday, Feb. 29!
Leap Year is wild to me. Every four years, we create an extra day to help the planet catch up with the sun? That’s wild!
So I want to talk to you a little bit about time management, and then I’m going to tell you about something really cool we’re doing for Leap Year.
The Clock is Your Friend… Sorta…
I live in Houston now, but I used to live on the East Coast of the United States. And that’s where I was in the early 2000s, when I first started trading.
And I started as a Forex trader. If you’ve done any Forex trading, you know that means early, early mornings. I was waking up in the middle of the night to do my trading.
The Forex market is open 24 hours a day from Monday morning in Australia all the way through Friday in Australia.
I became crucially aware of two things:
First, the forex market is super active at sometimes, and super slow at sometimes. There’s not a lot of reason to trade during the slow times unless you have a specific reason to do so.
Second, the calendar is your friend. Sites like Forex Factory track all the major reports that are going to come out and even track which ones are most likely to move the market a lot.
The thing about trading is, the big movements may not be predictable as far as direction.
But the times for big movement often are.
If there’s a jobs report? Boom. The market is pretty likely to move.
A Fed statement? Of course, the market is going to react!
So as a trader, you can literally set your clock by these kinds of reports, and you can predict to be most active around the times that they drop.
It’s a simple change, but you’ll begin to see that you feel like you have more time in your day when the day is more structured and easier to understand.
But hey, this year, you’ve got a whole extra day, so you barely have to worry about it!
Speaking of which…
My Leap Day Party
So I wanted to celebrate Leap Day, but I didn’t know how.
Then I remembered, I have a strategy called Jump Trades!
(My staff hates when I remember things like that, because it means I’m gonna make them do stuff!)
So I made my staff do stuff.
And we created a one-time-only special three-month trial membership to join Jump Trades.
To celebrate 2/29, we’re making it $229, a 39% discount.
Jump Trades really is an awesome strategy.
I got to work with Roger Scott on it, who is probably the smartest market genius I know.
We’ve helped people target 426% returns, even as high as 883% returns on these trades.
They’re predictable. They’re just like clockwork (almost like an economic report!) And they can generate huge returns.
I’m really excited about this.
I’m going to go celebrate with some jumping jacks. Or jump rope. Or something.
Bye-bye, enjoy your awesome day!
