Define Insanity………

By |2019-10-31T14:44:44-05:00October 31st, 2019|education, financial goals, Money Management|

What is the definition of insanity? ANSWER:  When you continue to do the same thing over and over, and you expect different results each time; that is the definition of insanity. Why would you want to continue doing the same thing over and over, especially when you are not having the results you anticipated? Be honest with yourself. Do you do this at work? How do escape this vicious merry-go-round? If I keep this up, where does this road lead me? Where will I end up? If you are successful in what you’re doing, and you are excited to get to work every day; then I would suggest you keep doing the same thing. You can stop reading this post now.  But sometimes, things change and we don’t realize how it happened. And we look back and we don’t remember when it was fun to go to work. It is such a grind just to show up and smile. Look at the points below and see how many apply to you.

Don’t follow me. Until you know your Risk Limits

By |2019-10-31T08:19:43-05:00October 31st, 2019|Beginning traders, financial goals, Futures Trading|

Let's talk about safe trading. Futures Trading. Follow me a minute and you will understand. When you drive a new ride and push it too hard, some predictable things will happen. We have proven over and over the mistakes that new futures traders make. When you are new to futures trading it can be like driving a High-Performance car.  Take it easy until you know the car and the track. Fast and gorgeous There is risk in all endeavors, and you need to know your limits.  If you want success in your financial goals, read on. Just like driving a new race car, we at the S&P500 Trading Group know the errors everyone makes, and we prepare you for the bumps and the turns in the track. Don't risk a mistake until you have trained and trained some more. You need to finish the course and not wreck out.  We call this risk management and risk analysis.   This ATV on the right was driven past its limits trying to keep up with more experienced drivers. This is common for new traders also. When the side by sides 1st came out; there was a small learning curve. Actually a large curve.  In stock form, we wanted to see how hard can you push this ATV and still make it to the finish line. The learning curve was steep. Well, we found out; and ended up on our side or upside down too many times. Futures trading follows this same track. Risk is Necessary, But You have to Know Your Limits If you did these same things and you were not wearing a helmet or seat belts, you may not be reading this.  This picture could be on your tombstone.  So, the lesson here is; if you're going to push past your limits, make sure you have a safety net of some sort. Make sure this will not be your last ride. You never risk too much money on 1 trade. Things happen fast when you are new to a track or a piece of equipment.  Even after you work out the bugs in your driving style; you still need to wear a helmet and seat belts. In trading, we set upper and lower limits according to your level of training and how much you intend to risk. Helmet and belts. The most important skills you will learn as you drive one of these is how hard you can turn. How fast can you turn and what happens when you brake in a turn.  See some items that look alike in that last sentence? Going in a straight line is easy. When you attempt a turning maneuver is when the fun starts. I can assure you, futures trading can be exhilarating and rewarding. It can also be dangerous if you don't have the proper training and skills. When you don't have the experience or necessary training, you can easily push too hard. Sometimes you will see a trade that looks [...]

Straight out of college and making $250K

By |2019-10-30T10:04:53-05:00October 30th, 2019|$500K career, Earn More Money, education|

Where can you earn $40,000 your 1st year in school? Can you tell me what college degree will offer you a job making $250,000 or more straight out of school? Oh, with no debt. What would you spend per year on a good college education? And if you find work right away, can you take this job on the road and work anywhere you have an internet connection? Can you work according to your schedule?  To start a $500K career takes work and focus and education. Are you up to a challenge? If you are retired and looking to get a great return on your investment, who can approach a 500% ROI? This also applies if you just want to earn more money with a part-time job. Student Debt Let me answer those questions. The numbers don't lie.  If you go to college and get a four or even a 5-year degree, what will you earn the 1st day after you graduate and you go to work? What can you expect during the 1st year of college? More debt or earning money while you learn and in the black? Consider an alternative called futures trading. When you graduate college, do you go look for a job or maybe apprentice with a group or corporation that can teach you real-world skills so that you become a valuable team player? Or would you rather be earning a butt load of money and own your own business?  What does your gut feeling say? What Happens the 1st Day After You Graduate? With a 5-year degree; when you graduate, what kind of income can you expect? Are you going to be uber-productive as you walk off the stage and give this company a great return on their investment?   Will they reward you for a piece of paper in your hand and pay you gobs of money right out of the gate?  I would say probably not.  How about your investment in yourself, in time, resources, Etc?  The normal cost for a 4-year college degree can easily run 60 to $75,000 per year when you include your books, fees, housing, food Etc. Some universities will cost you $150,000 per year. So, let's say you have invested 4 years of your time and about $250,000 (cash or debt). When can you expect to get a return on the time you have invested and the resources that you or your family have invested in this education? How long do you calculate a student loan will take to pay off? Ok, here we go. This is a great alternative. The answer is called futures trading. And, you will need to attend our S&P500 Trading Academy and follow our prescribed courses. Then as you learn, you earn. I can show you a conservative path to earn $75,000 in 18 months. Can you show me any college or trade school that will make that claim? Now Let's look at the S&P500 Trading Academy. If you invest 2-3 [...]

The Perfect Part Time Job

By |2019-10-27T13:03:35-05:00October 27th, 2019|earn extra money, Jobs for Veterans|

  When you go out and do an internet search looking for ways to earn extra money or “jobs for veterans” how many times have you been inundated with ads and just totally spammed with links that have nothing to do what you were looking for? After a few searches like this did you just give up in despair? I'm here to tell you; not All Is Lost. I'm not here to spam you, I'm not here to rip you off. I'm here to share with you; a fellow veteran, that if you need to earn some extra money or if you even want to start a new career it's not as difficult as you think. This new part-time job or career will allow you to use some of your money and generate double, triple, or even 5 times your investment. We are unique in the industry in the fact that we offer end-to-end support. The highest level of support to make sure that you can be successful. Don’t waste your time sorting through hundreds of gimmick offers and rip-off sites. If you have the time to sort through hundreds and hundreds of job offerings and multi-level marketing offers and offers that you could never even understand, then take just a few moments and look at what I have to offer you. You may have never heard of futures trading before today, but it is a multi-billion dollar a day industry. And you can get into this industry with a $3000 trading account. And of course, you’ll need an education before you start to trade. That’s where we come in. That is what we do best. Been There, Done That Here’s my story. I had already retired….. twice. I had time on my hands, and I was looking to earn some extra money. I dabbled in real estate. I dabbled in flipping homes. My career in the energy field gave me a good view of multiple industries. I had just started a new contracting business, but I found out I had some physical limitations and that were very frustrating and kept me from a lot of activities that I had performed in the past. I knew change was coming. My time as a soldier was long past and my time as a general contractor was fading. I enjoyed the physical labor of my career, but past injuries and time had slowed me down. My college was put off due to the war, marriage, children, and life in general. I have paid for hundreds of hours of technical courses to stay on top of communication and energy distribution technology. I studied hard during my short 10 years in the military and then I studied even more to obtain state and federal licenses for my contracting businesses.  And of course, a big change in the industry sent me back to school again. It was called the computer age. Now you can learn as you earn. Now comes the Good Part Not only [...]

Thank You for Your Service

By |2019-10-25T09:07:09-05:00October 25th, 2019|Beginning traders|

How many times have you gone off base and went out to eat or went shopping while in uniform? You know the drill. People come up to you and tell you "thank you for your service". They even offer to buy your lunch. The big hardware stores and restaurants offer a discount, and the cashier is required to say " thank you for your service". Kinda gets old; doesn't it? You know these kids at the cash register mean well, but you also know that because of your time in uniform and your sacrifice; they don't have to give up what you did. They can live a normal life because you gave up such a large portion of yours to keep them safe and free. Sometimes, I see the veteran that has multiple bumper stickers and a ball cap emblazoned with his branch of service or his unit patch. He wears an OD green field jacket circa 1965. Then the first thing that comes to mind is the joke between the brethren; " Thank ME for MY service!"  But now, I feel sorry for the vet that seems to be frozen in time and his major accomplishment in life was a couple of years in uniform. Time must have stood still, as he is still wallowing in his younger years. We are all different, but please don't be angry with me. I spent 12 years in uniform and loved it, but a peacetime Army sucks, and I needed more challenges than the Army had for me after the Viet Nam war. Many soldiers retiring now have seen a combat-ready branch of service since they joined. They had a mission and they were allowed to accomplish that mission. After Viet Nam, the cold war was terrible for morale. We had casualties and missions, but there were no heroes and no victories. I see today's soldier, sailor, airman ( no I did not forget our sisters in uniform ) and I marvel at their physical fitness, their mental focus, and the sacrifices they endure. I could only hope to match up to their level of professional accomplishment. Not enough of our generation survived their injuries as do the modern soldier. We gave up time with our family. You gave up the education and maybe the degree that would propel you to a high paying job. You may have given up a leg or an arm and your hearing and sight. Your resume is doctored and slim when you look for work. ( who wants to hire a trained marksman). Hell, even the law enforcement field was closed to us after Viet Nam; because we were accused of being baby killers. The Sheriff I worked for was scared to let me carry a weapon. He assumed all soldiers were mental cases and would go off the deep end if they were put under stress. The public stigma was caused by a bunch of social justice warriors. ( we called them hippies ) Due to your injuries; you [...]

That perfect Job. The One I’ve Been Looking for

By |2019-10-23T18:10:18-05:00October 23rd, 2019|earn extra money, financial goals|

Have you been walking through what seems to be a desert? A career desert. There's no work; and when you find a job, it just doesn't seem to fit you. This is a job desert. I've been there and wandered for months at a time until I found an oasis. Well, like a treasure you find in the desert, here is a solution; an answer to your quest. If you are looking to earn extra money or re-set your career with a $500K income, We've Got Your Six.  And, you can be the boss of this operation too. We've Got Your Six The job you have been searching for is not just a job and it is available.  It's a business startup, not a J.O.B.  The vehicle to meet your financial goals now and for the future.  The name for this business is the S&P500 Trading Group. We are accepting applications for our group. Don't be surprised when you find out how qualified you are. We want you to join us in this journey to financial freedom.  This is so awesome, you have to come see for your self. We want to invite you to our online trading group and take a look-see. The S&P500 Trading Group is really a treasure in the middle of a big dry desert. Look around, you won't find another like us. This is not a storefront/retail business. This is not a multi-level marketing thing you sell to your friends' kinda business.  You don't need a high rent fancy office.  This business has no employees, except a good CPA to help you with all the money you can make. This is Futures Trading.  I know many people from the military and law enforcement may not be familiar with this term.  It is a simple way to buy into the market and then sell when the market goes up.  Buy low and Sell high. Our portion of this business is to teach you the safe and proper way to make money in the financial market. This is the same thing a kid does at a lemonade stand. You buy what you need, you put it up for sale at a profit, and then you pocket the difference.  Actually, the technical description of the futures market is "Contract for Difference".  You contract with your broker to buy at maybe $50 and when the price goes up to $ 54; which is your profit target; then you sell. We call this a trade. A contract for difference. This difference is what makes the world go round, and you can be a small part or a big part of the profit difference. When Life Gives you Lemons, Make Money You enter or get into a trade when you buy and you get out of the trade (exit) when you sell.  We always calculate our entry and exit prices before we enter a trade.  This is a very important way to ensure you are profitable in the long run. We stress and [...]

The Fog of War

When the fog of confusion is present, how do you make the right decisions?  When you are looking to make a career move or just earn extra money, how do you know which internet ad is going to be what they say they are and which one is just spam?  The thousands of paid ads that pop up and the spam that follows is enough to scare off most job hunters. Guess What?  You came to the right place if you want to earn some extra money or even start a $500K career in Futures Trading. This drawing was presented to me at a grade school where I was giving a talk to my granddaughter's 4th-grade class as a featured local veteran. I immediately knew the artist would one day become a General; due to the fact; at an early age he could recognize the “Fog of War”. So.... I present to you FM 6-20 and all the fun you can stand. Do you know if you made the right decision? How can you know if you picked the right path, or if you picked the right company to do business with?  The spam and the hucksters are so pervasive and so convincing.  The S&P500 Trading Group would like you to check out what we do and how we do it before you make a decision.  We are unique in the industry and provide an end to end solution for you to learn and earn. In Military life, there is little doubt about your job and your mission. You know what you are about and you train, and you train some more to succeed in that mission.  When you transition to civilian life you will find the mission objectives are clear, but how do you complete the mission? You recognize the roadblocks to success and wonder how to overcome those barriers. We are proud of our mission which is to train you for success. No spam, no BS;  just results. If you have some snowflake in you, you can quit reading now. We won't waste your time, and vice versa. As a civilian, I enjoy making the plans for my company and also executing the plan. I know who is responsible for the glory and the “oh Hells”.  Look at the above drawing and see if the 4th grader who drew this is on target. He seemed to cover all the bases. So.... What about you. Now that you have a DD214 what is your next step? Your Skills will Bring you Through the Fog to success in the Civilian World If you are doing your re-con for a new career.  A plan to make money in a future job; or business, prepare to copy. There is so much “fog” out there when you are looking to transition to a new job or start a new business. I hope you would consider a non-traditional career in the financial market. Specifically, futures trading. With your skills you already have, you can learn [...]

Risk and Reward , For Futures Traders Only

By |2019-10-21T14:09:49-05:00October 21st, 2019|education, Futures Trading, Risk Management|

Don't get Desperate for a Win Futures Trading involves risk, beware. What do you do when your trades keep going south?  Well, you may need a lifeboat. Maybe you need an intervention or more education. Who do you trust to come to your rescue? Who do you know that will help you define your risk and reward ratios, and money management techniques?  I can tell you that being alone behind your screen day after day can re-enforce bad habits. Habits that grow unnoticed until they are a problem. So, who will tell you the hard truths and look at your trades with an open mind?  You need someone not affected by your gains or losses.  You need a trading partner. If this is news to you, please hang in there with me. You will recognize the signs of problems you may have struggled with and wondered why you can't seem to make a profit. Being part of the S&P500 Trading Group means you have more resources available than ever before. Not only do we make these resources available as part of our education curriculum, but you can spend up to 8 hours a day online with some of the best teachers and traders.  We offer an end to end solution with support and training, to help you to build a winning track record. Fall back on your proven track record for risk and reward, and money management If you are part of our team, you have support close at hand. But, if you are a solo trader, or new to the game and haven't found a trading partner yet; you need some input when times are bad and even when the money is rolling in. This is the time to stress capital preservation and don't force a major change in your spending habits. Fall back on proven risk and reward formulas and money management. Most people have experience in lean times and getting by with little money.  Very few people are experienced with a surplus of money and they tend to make some big mistakes. I have seen many a lottery winner that is broke and bankrupt within a few years of winning the lottery. If you are new to futures trading, and when you realize the potential for profit, it may upset you and make your head spin. Learn to Be Successful Launching a Lifeboat In your desperation to succeed and in your success, you can fall prey to bad habits that affect both ends of the spectrum. If you have traded for any length of time, you have an edge or a trade signal that proves your process with overall wins for a specified time period. Many futures traders will look at 5-10 point gain in 1 week as more than acceptable. The profit potential is enormous and you need to be aware of the emotional and psychological effects of trading. Many a trader has gone bankrupt when they fail to recognize these emotional hurdles and [...]
