This morning I read the most-Googled career question of 2018 was ‘how to quit a job’ followed by ‘what job should I have’ – wow did that article bring me back to the time I resigned my 10-year career as an elementary school teacher
Despite having a Masters in Education, I quit because after a decade I had a negative net worth of -$250,000 and assuming I went on to teach the standard 30-years — very little chance of paying the debt off across my next 20-years of service.
The article went on to say median-salaried employees in all but six Fortune 500 companies would need to work for 45 years to earn what their CEO makes in one year.
And did you know real wages effectively declined in 2018 due to cost of living increases or that more than 60% of Americans said they did not get a pay raise in the last year? Let’s not even bring up the high costs of college and health-care!
All of this is really frustrating if you’re the broke school teacher, sitting in the faculty lounge listening to your colleagues complain about the 2.5% raise next year, health benefits decreasing and class sizes increasing.
But I’ve never been one to complain about a CEO making tons of money — I was more interested in finding ways I could make more money too.
Take for example the $112,912.57 I’ve made just 23-days into 2019 — nearly 4x my starting teaching salary of $33,850?!
I love stock trading because not only are you your own boss — but there’s no ceiling on how much money you can make.
This is why I created Millionaire Roadmap. There’s nothing else like this. No other place can you watch millionaires trade, ask questions and learn their techniques. If you could go to a university and drop $100,000 to learn to be a millionaire, would you? Well, guess what, there’s a place to do that.
Headed into Wednesday I’m in 7-swings — having loaded the boat Tuesday afternoon when the markets fell hard and bounced off support.
The goal on swings is target 1-2 patterns from my daily scan (ideally with catalysts) and hit 5-20% in 1-4 days, rinse and repeat. Click here to stream the above portfolio in real-time (Jason Bond Picks members only).
LQMT – I have a big holding in this stock over at TD Ameritrade long-term for a move to $.50+ but am also considering it as a swing in my E*TRADE portfolio for a move to $.20. Shares moved from $.10 to $.16 with little resistance and have formed a bull flag just below the supply line. If $.16 breaks I don’t think $.20 is unreasonable in the next week.
RWLK – This is a catalyst swing trade I like in the low $.20’s. I already have a small position but am looking to add to it today. Here’s my report if you missed it (Jason Bond Picks members only) and my goal is $.30+ for profit. I’m looking to add as much as 150,000 shares in the low $.20’s.
UXIN – Oversold chart pattern (see Penny stocks 101) that’s in play for me above $3. Monitor trade news with China as a catalyst here. Recent upgrade to overweight by JPMorgan with a price target of $7 leaves me to believe good news might be coming soon here too.
