Tomorrow Is the Big Day...
As you're reading this, I'm on a plane to Las Vegas for the 2018 MoneyShow investment conference. Jason Williams, my partner at The Wealth Advisory, and I are are giving a presentation, entitled "Marijuana Income: A Lifetime of Profits and Payments from This Emerging Super-Sector."
It's about marijuana stocks. We've got a sweet real estate investment trust (REIT) stock that does leaseback agreements with growers. It pays a solid 3% dividend. TWA subscribers already get 64% gains on the stock, and there's more to come.
So, this Vegas trip isn't a pleasure trip. Yes, Jason and I will get a nice dinner somewhere. And I definitely plan to sit at a Texas Hold'em table for a few hours, depending on how the cards treat me...
But that's about it for me and fun in Vegas.
I'll be on a red-eye back to Baltimore Thursday morning for one of the biggest days of my career...
In many ways, tomorrow is the culmination of 15 years of research and testing...
My Rock Bottom
It was 2003, and I'd been in this biz for about five years. Over that time, I'd built up a dangerous amount of knowledge about stocks and trading. Dangerous because I'd thought I knew more than I actually did.
To make a long story short, it was right after boots hit the ground in the second Iraq War that I basically went broke because of my undisciplined trading. I'd been on a hot streak and made a lot of money within only a few months. On my best day, I'd made over $5,000.
My daughter was about to turn three, and my son was fast approaching his first birthday. I remember thinking that in another few months, I'd have made enough money from my trading for a nice down payment on a new house.
Stocks were selling off as the drums of war beat louder. During the second week of March, I loaded thousands of dollars on a downside trade of a semiconductor stock named KLA-Tencor. I'd thought a dramatic drop would be coming when our soldiers' boots hit the ground. I'd already been picking out furniture for the new house...
But the opposite happened. Stocks didn't sell off — they rallied. KLA-Tencor was up 10% in the blink of an eye, and my position got hammered. But I knew I was right, so I doubled down. And then, I doubled down again a few days later. I honestly don't remember how many times I added to this losing trade. Those few weeks were a blur of panic and fear as I desperately tried to trade my way back to a profit.
In the end, I let my emotions of fear and greed take over. And that was ultimately a recipe for disaster.
Because when things are going our way, we get more and more aggressive and also take more chances. And then when it goes the other way, massive losses can mount quickly, and panic can set in...

I lost it all plus my seed money because I hadn't had the tools I'd needed to make consistent trading decisions.
So, that was how I got started in investigating and using trading systems. I wanted to have rules in place that would govern my trading and also specific conditions for buying and selling stocks. And I found that the more these rules were automated, the easier the profits came in...

Maybe you've heard that 70% of stock trading is done by computers these days...
Or maybe you've heard of billionaire investors like Ray Dalio, Steven Cohen, Jim Simons, and David E. Shaw. If you haven't, don't worry about it. These guys are secretive. They don't advertise how their trading algorithms generate billions in profits every year, regardless of what the overall market is doing.
But the biggest Wall Street fortunes today come from computer-based trading systems. And that's what tomorrow is all about...
Now, I've been in this business for 20 years. I know the financial industry inside and out. I knew from the start that I didn't fit in with the Wall Street club. My dad was a teacher. I didn't grow up belonging to any fancy clubs. And I only know which fork is which because I waited tables to get through college.
But I’m not a financial engineer. And I'm definitely not a computer programmer.
So, to code an intelligent machine that could take my performance from the top 10% of all hedge funds to the top 1%, I needed proven experts with the knowledge of and experience in building precision financial systems from the bottom up — no matter how complex they might be.
Two years ago, I started the search for the people who could help me build a computer algorithm-trading system. And for the last nine months, my system, which I call Alpha Profit Machine, has been in beta testing with over 300 individual investors. They've traded the system in real-time with real money.
And the result has been fantastic. Alpha Profit Machine's total return so far this year is 24%, while the S&P 500's is flat.
So, tomorrow, May 17, 2018, at 1 p.m. (ET) and 10 a.m. (PT), in a live internet broadcast, my team and I will unveil all the details of the proven system that we’ve been using to generate massive double- and triple-digit gains with little to no risk. I'd love for you to join me. You can sign up right HERE.
