Breaking Barriers

Oct. 14, 2020

For a thousand years, no one had done it.

Men thought it was impossible. Doctors said it would be fatal.

Humans simply can’t run a 4-minute mile.

Sir Roger disagreed.

So he tried anyway.

And the impossible turned out to be possible.

For centuries, it was an insurmountable obstacle.

Once it was accomplished, what happened next? Did we have to wait centuries for the next one?

No.

Once minds were opened, John Landy did it again 46 days later.

Sir Roger Bannister wasn’t selling something. He wasn’t trying to create hype to get people on his email list. He wasn’t trying to get people to buy his course.

He simply had something to prove. He thought humans were selling themselves short.

And he wanted to fix that.

That’s the theme of the Newsletter.

I believe traders can take simple strategies and make returns that far exceed anything the experts tell us is possible.

Regular people can’t beat the market? Bull%$#@.

So this week, I’ve put three robots on an $1,800 account. Research has shown that breakouts are the most surefire way to make money, and I believe that research.

That’s why two of the robots are going to be breakout robots (Dragonfly). The third one is the Weekly Pivot robot we recently built from scratch.

All three are going to have the same trade size. All three are 100% automated (no human intervention needed). I’m never turning them off, not for news events or holidays or because I’m nervous about something.

And I’m willing to accept a potentially large amount of drawdown. More about that later.

And I’m going to compound the gains for five years. Three years would be acceptable, but this is a 5-year plan. At the end of five years, I may stop compounding if the growth has been exponential.

I’ve run the tests and this simple portfolio would have produced great hypothetical results the past five years.

I don’t want to say the exact number (it’s too outrageous) but let’s just say that the hypothetical $1,800 portfolio turned into something north of $50,000.

This isn’t a sales pitch. There’s nothing to buy.

This is just an experiment to prove that regular people can do something that everyone thinks is impossible.

If this account does it, hopefully other traders can do it too.

In our next newsletter, we’ll go over the details and explain how anyone can follow along.

Talk soon.
