Getting insulted is so great

When I was in Australia doing a construction project…

Wait, what?

Sorry…did I fail to mention I was a carpenter in Australia at one point? My bad. I was.

One of our clients was this young boss lady that had more umph than any man I knew. Confident and brilliant. She knew what she wanted.

She came to the workshop area we had set up and asked to speak to someone in charge. The foreman was absent so I happily obliged...

How can I use 20-Minute Trading to make money?

let’s start off with a very clear disclaimer that I am NOT a registered financial advisor and you should not blindly follow me or anyone else in day trading. Super risky. And I can most definitely NOT promise you that you will make money. Anyone who does, with any investment strategy is breaking the rules. 

But I WILL tell you my story and you CAN verify my personal claims on my website under Jeremy’s Trades where you will find broker statements and screenshots of everything.

The goal of 20-Minute Trader is to enable the busy person to get a successful edge on the stock market, needing only to spend twenty minutes per day on trading. 

Is trading easy to learn?

Hello 20-Minute Trader here and welcome back to my blog. Today we'll be tackling a very important question: Is trading easy to learn? And by the time you are through this you’ll know how it can be easy to learn.

First, let me just say that trading education is as vast as education in the field of medicine. There are thousands of books on it, tens of thousands of strategies, millions of pioneers of different levels of skill, and an incredible amount of research, metrics, software, hardware products, theories and professions connected with stock trading.

However, despite all of these resources, the success rate of stock market traders is so low. According to some studies, only around 10% of traders are consistently profitable in the long run.

In the Money and Out of the Money, what does that mean?

When we talk about options, we use the expressions "in the money" and "out of the money" to describe the relationship between the strike price and the current price of the underlying share price for options.

A call option is considered "in the money" if the current price of the shares is above the strike price for a call option. For example, let's say you have a call option to buy a share of a company at a strike price of $50, but the current market price of the share is $60. This means the option is "in the money" because you could exercise the option and buy the share for $50, then sell it on the market for $60, making a profit of $10 per share. It is 10 dollars in the money, in other words the strike price is ten dollars lower than the market price.

What is a delta? 

20-Minute Trader here! We'll be discussing the concept of delta in options trading.

The delta of an option can range from 0 to 1 for a call option, and from  -1 to 0 for a put option. A delta of 0 indicates that the option's price is not affected by changes in the underlying asset's price, while a delta of 1 (or -1 for a put option) indicates that the option's price is completely correlated with the underlying asset's price, in lockstep if you will. 

Let’s provide an example to clarify it. Someone buys an in-the-money call option that expires in three weeks. The delta is 1. The cost of the contract is 4000 dollars, but is represented as 40.00. Side bar: if any of this is confusing so far, go and read about Call Options – full explanation in my blog.


Hey friends! It’s the 20-Minute Trader explaining Put Options, what they are, how they work and why anyone would be interested in them. Oh, you think you may not be geek enough for this?

Okay so you are a geek?

You know what? That’s okay, this explanation is designed for the geek and non-geek alike.

Put options. The premise is making money on a dropping stock.

You think a stock will drop, you can buy Put Options to make money on that if it does.


There's a product I'm really excited about that many of you will love. I's called the 20- Minute Trader® and is the most genius hack I've seen in the stock market in decades. The course is only 15 minutes long and teaches a trading method that only requires 20 minutes per day of your time, and that includes getting ready, drinking some tea or coffee and setting up your computer and your trade.

It uses Call Options, which is usually super confusing, but these folks nailed it and really know how to explain it to someone who isn't an expert but wants to understand.

How to Invest in 2023 for Beginners or Experts

Anyone interested in investing knows that whether it's a house, a piece of art, a stock,

or a crypto coin, the idea is to buy something for a certain price and sell it for a higher price.

The issue always is, what to buy and when to buy it. So profits can occur as soon as possible.

In any field, a good way to enter it, is grab ahold of as many reliable books or materials on the subject as you can, and read them, or study them if they are videos or documentaries, and try to get both a general and specific understanding of the field.

Anyone entering into investing in something should attempt to obtain as many different texts on the subject and study them.

Market Indigestion in Late 2022

The Market had diarrhea yesterday, and yet I received MANY results of satisfying gains from 20- Minute Traders digesting their earnings. Sorry for the gross analogy. Yet more proof that the system works in both Bear and Bull Markets.

Overnight traders dropped the Market even more. Interestingly, both good news and bad news are bad news for the Stock Market.

Signs of economic recovery means more rate hikes, means sell your stocks!! Signs of economic turndown like drops in retail sales means companies are doing worse, and this drops stocks as well.

The Effect of US Elections 2022 on the Market,

Plus Comments on Inflation.

The elections held hope for investors from both sides of the isle, that a Republican Congress would be the result. It ended up that the House is now Republican while the Senate remains Democratic. A split Congress.

To be clear, I am speaking only from the standpoint of Wall Street and how they feel. This is not about political ideologies or policies from the standpoint of which side is good or bad or right or wrong. This is merely how Wall Street views things in terms of market response.

Inflation and the Fed in Early November 2022

There’s a great deal of attention on the Fed decisions these days.

Until the Fed eases up interest rates, people’s assets will continue to fall or stay low. So, a bunch of people are wanting the rate hikes to slow or stop soon. But the Fed is like, “Sorry effers, we aren’t going to do that until inflation is at a solid 2% instead of 8 or 9%.”

How I Prevent Major Losses

I have been through every scenario you can imagine on day trading. I have even doubled my money, tripled my money, over the span of just weeks and then wiped it all out in one stupid trade.

One time made $30,000 over the span of three months, and lost $25,000 in one trade.

I did what other traders do. I looked in the mirror and called myself a gambler, a loser, a weakling, an idiot, a criminally irresponsible psycho, and a coward.

5 Habits of Jeremy

The last one is most important by far...

1. READING (audiobooks).

You hear this a lot, but I listen to audiobooks while showering, folding laundry, exercising at the gym, walking my baby son around the neighborhood, mowing the lawn, and any other household chores.

About one book every two weeks. Subjects are investing, marketing, scaling, leadership, etc. and also some fiction.

Day Trading Loser

If you lose at day trading and you are reading this right now, in one way you're very not unique and in another way you are very


Estimates show that 90% of day traders have less money in their account than they put in. In this regard you are not unique.

But very few of these losers admit it. That you do and can, makes you VERY unique.

You hear about these great winners who show how they made a bunch of money day trading, it almost makes you feel like everyone

does or can.


Stock means ownership.

If you have stock in a company it means you own part of that company.

The reason it's called “stocks” is rather funny. In England, the stock market started

hundreds of years ago in a building right next to a meat and fish market. Featured at one end of the market was a bunch of criminals placed in neck yokes otherwise known as “stocks.” You know, the planks with holes in them for hands and a head, to publicly punish criminals. That meat and fish market came to be known as the “stock market,” where you will find folks in neck yolks while buying your wares. The word “Stock” itself, goes back to meaning “wood” or “tree trunk.”

My Strategy

I’m celebrating the coming recession…why?

Because my strategy is recession proof, and has proven itself since January.

Making Money Online

Making money online is now easy for many people in so many ways that it has been a great way for people to add income to their lives. Many who work a day job are also doing a side hustle to make additional cash. Online is one of the best ways to do this. I know writers who get paid to do copywriting in their spare time, people who have an Amazon product that they're selling, people trading crypto, stocks, options, forex, etc. Etsy is filled with people who are crafting desirable commodities for sale, often as a side hustle.

What Is A Call Option?

Options are just confusing enough to keep a lot of people from working with them. But they're also just easy enough that the retail trader who isn't an expert can get through the discomfort of learning what they are and potentially gain greatly from this understanding.

Try to imagine you only have got you've only got $1000 to invest. And you're looking at a stock like Apple...

Trading is risky, and most day traders lose money. Read our full disclaimer.

Day-Trading Risk Disclosure Statement

(From FINRA)

You should consider the following points before engaging in a day-trading strategy. For purposes of this notice, a "day-trading strategy" means an overall trading strategy characterized by the regular transmission by a customer of intra-day orders to effect both purchase and sale transactions in the same security or securities.

Day trading can be extremely risky. Day trading generally is not appropriate for someone of limited resources and limited investment or trading experience and low risk tolerance. You should be prepared to lose all of the funds that you use for day trading. In particular, you should not fund day-trading activities with retirement savings, student loans, second mortgages, emergency funds, funds set aside for purposes such as education or home ownership, or funds required to meet your living expenses. Further, certain evidence indicates that an investment of less than $50,000 will significantly impair the ability of a day trader to make a profit. Of course, an investment of $50,000 or more will in no way guarantee success.

Be cautious of claims of large profits from day trading. You should be wary of advertisements or other statements that emphasize the potential for large profits in day trading. Day trading can also lead to large and immediate financial losses.

Day trading requires knowledge of securities markets. Day trading requires in-depth knowledge of the securities markets and trading techniques and strategies. In attempting to profit through day trading, you must compete with professional, licensed traders employed by securities firms. You should have appropriate experience before engaging in day trading.

Day trading requires knowledge of a firm's operations. You should be familiar with a securities firm's business practices, including the operation of the firm's order execution systems and procedures. Under certain market conditions, you may find it difficult or impossible to liquidate a position quickly at a reasonable price. This can occur, for example, when the market for a stock suddenly drops, or if trading is halted due to recent news events or unusual trading activity. The more volatile a stock is, the greater the likelihood that problems may be encountered in executing a transaction. In addition to normal market risks, you may experience losses due to system failures.

Day trading will generate substantial commissions, even if the per trade cost is low. Day trading involves aggressive trading, and generally you will pay commissions on each trade. The total daily commissions that you pay on your trades will add to your losses or significantly reduce your earnings. For instance, assuming that a trade costs $16 and an average of 29 transactions are conducted per day, an investor would need to generate an annual profit of $111,360 just to cover commission expenses.

Day trading on margin or short selling may result in losses beyond your initial investment. When you day trade with funds borrowed from a firm or someone else, you can lose more than the funds you originally placed at risk. A decline in the value of the securities that are purchased may require you to provide additional funds to the firm to avoid the forced sale of those securities or other securities in your account. Short selling as part of your day-trading strategy also may lead to extraordinary losses, because you may have to purchase a stock at a very high price in order to cover a short position.
