1. Almost Everyone has the Potential to Become a Consistently Profitable Trader
I wholeheartedly believe that most people have the ability to become successful in trading.
Now, if a person chooses to develop that potential or not, is up to each individual.
But I've come into contact with many profitable traders since 2007, and they all had different paths to success.
Some have very unusual trading methods. When you first look at these strategies, they don't seem like they should work. But when you see their results, it obviously does.
That's proof that there's more than one path to success and everyone can use their innate strengths to create a trading strategy that will work with their unique personality.
My mission is to help you develop your potential into skills that you can depend on to create a consistent income from trading.
2. You are More Powerful Than You Know
I'm a student of human potential.
When you really dig deep into human potential, we are capable of truly amazing things.
But we have been taught that we aren't. Society and our parents have severely limited what we think is possible.
It's not their fault. They learned from the generations before them.
All the things that we are capable of goes beyond the scope of this Manifesto.
However, if you want to learn more, follow our content on whichever platform you use most. Social media links are at the bottom of this page. You will start to pick up on what I'm talking about.
I want to help you unlock your full potential in life and in trading.
3. You Need BOTH Trading Strategies and Trading Psychology to Succeed
Most new traders are looking for a “holy grail” trading system.
They think that all they have to do is follow the rules of a trading system and they will be rich.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
In reality, there are 2 parts to trading success: strategy and psychology.
So we focus on bringing you the best content to help you progress in both areas.
Hint: Trading psychology is actually the more important part, but it's much less popular. Finding the right strategy and sticking with it is much easier when you have the right psychology.
The best place to start is our blog.
4. We are Independent Thinkers
There is nothing more powerful than the ability to think for yourself.
With the advancement of technology, a lot of information is spoon fed to us via news apps and video programming.
It's super convenient, but how many times have you stopped to consider if that information is true or not?
If you haven't, then consider this…
I've watched hundreds of YouTube videos that demonstrate a trading system. Most of the presenters are convinced that the trading system works and that it will be profitable over the long run.
However, when I backtested the systems, I've found that most of them don't actually work. The videos just showed a few well chosen examples, or a short period of time where the system did really well.
Likewise, when you tune in to one of the financial news channels, do they really know the reason that a stock dropped or the market went up?
They rarely do. Many times, they give nonsensical or generic reasons like:
- The market pulled back on profit taking
- Investors got nervous and sold their shares
- The EURUSD rose due to May's favorable trade numbers
Remember that these people are just reading from their teleprompter and they need material to do a show every day. They haven't actually gone out and investigated why an event actually happened. In some cases, nobody knows exactly why something happened.
So I encourage you to keep an open mind about all information that you come into contact with. Have the curiosity to double check the information yourself, either through backtesting or doing your own research.
We will present information that will probably challenge some of your beliefs.
Try it for yourself. Double check it.
Find what works for you, and leave the rest.
5. There is Rarely ONE Truth for Everyone
Through all of my research, I've figured out that there is rarely one thing that works for everyone.
That means the concept of truth actually resides in a huge gray area.
In other words, there will be some things that work for others, but won't work for you. Likewise there will be things that work for you, but don't work for others.
Therefore, my mission is to present all solutions that have been shown to work for someone.
When it comes to trading strategies, I'll show you backtesting results and statistics.
In the area of psychology, I'll show you things that have worked for me or others.
A good place to see this for yourself is my podcast.
6. Trading Psychology Goes Way Beyond What Many Professionals Think They Know
There's a lot of great information out there on how to improve your trading psychology.
Try out all of the methods and see what works for you. Again, there are no magic bullets and what works for one person may not work for another.
If you can achieve your goals with freely available information, then great! You don't need anything else.
But if not, then you're going to have to go deeper.
Most of the trading psychology information on the internet only gives you part of the solution.
I've discovered that there is another level to trading psychology that most professional coaches don't know about.
This is because a lot of what most people would consider “science” is actually more like religion. Some concepts are accepted on faith and a small group of powerful individuals can control what information is considered “legitimate.”
So I seek out all methods that can help you level up your mindset and become a better trader, regardless if they are accepted by the mainstream scientific community or not. As much as possible, I experiment with these methods on myself.
Again, I'm looking for solutions that have been shown to work, even if it has only worked for a small group of people.
If you want to see what I've tried so far, read this article.

7. We Embrace Uncertainty
New traders think that the markets are a machine. They think that you can apply a simple formula to the machine and it will spit out money like a broken ATM.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Successful traders are masters at managing uncertainty.
We acknowledge this and help you thrive in uncertainty.
8. Trading Success Comes Down to Positive Emotions
Part of having the right psychology is creating motivation to reach your goals.
Motivation ultimately comes from intense positive emotions about the end results of your work.
A simple concept, but not always easy to execute.
So we create content and products that help you boost your emotions, generate motivation and help you focus on your goals.
9. We Build Tools That Accelerate Your Learning and Trading
Trading has been around for a long time and it's a gigantic market.
But there are still opportunities to create tools and technology that can dramatically speed up your learning or make your trading easier. It's actually quite surprising how many gaps there are in the market.
We look for these opportunities and make them available here.
