Why more than 90% of active share traders lose money in 5 years

We are interested in more than just understanding shares, it is equally important that we understand the public perception of share trading.

These insights are invaluable when you understand what the average investor deals with, emotionally and financially.

So how effective are your peers when it comes to maintaining an active share portfolio?

Unfortunately, a large study by The University of California Berkeley on active trader performance showed that more than 90% of active traders lose money in the long run.

This study also showed that less than 2% of traders were profitable net of all fees!

In fact:

  • 40% of traders quit within a month
  • 87% of traders quit within 3 years
  • 93% of traders quit within 5 years

Why do more than 90% of active home traders lose money and inevitably quit in the long run?

The answer is pretty simple:

Limited Capital

Just a few bad investment decisions and it’s all over.

More often than not trading decisions are not based on sound research or tested trading methods, but on emotions, the need for entertainment and the hope of making a million dollars in your underwear.

What these traders nearly always forget is that this is a profession that requires dedication, a good network and analytical skills developed over many years.

And EVEN THEN, 77% of “paid professionals” can’t beat a flat market!

What hope does the individual investor actually have?

How can you protect your capital and trade with confidence for years to come?

We can only tell you what we have ACTUALLY ACCOMPLISHED over the last two years.

  • 256 closed trades
  • 95.4% of our closed trades in the past two years profitable
  • Average of 18%+ PER TRADE PROFIT

We are so confident you’ll love this we offer a full 21 Day Trial (try before you buy), 30 Day Money Back Guarantee and in most cases you can claim 50% of a membership back against your tax (talk to your adviser about this)!

All this to make you feel more comfortable about buying and this is before you’ve taken your profits sometimes in the first month!

So what does the $500 left over from your tax deduction get you these days?:

  • Gym membership (only good if you go)
  • A trip to a ladies hair salon
  • 2,500 Chicken McNuggets
  • A coffee machine
  • A new suit

While some of the above are great, sadly, none of them will improve your financial position!
