TRADING WITH INSIGHT: How Do I Get Started With Trading? (Ep. 07)

It’s so exciting to know that you could possibly earn an additional income trading in the stock market. So naturally you’re going to be curious about how to get started. So let’s break it down in 5 simple steps!

First, you need to make sure you’re willing to dedicate time to trading. If you want to SWING trade like we can teach you how to do, you really only need about 30 minutes per day. Swing trading is great for people who work fulltime jobs or just don’t want to sit at a computer for hours every day waiting for a trade opportunity.

Second, you need to take 5 minutes to open an options trading account. I HIGHLY recommend ThinkOrSwim because it’s the #1 platform for trading stock options! Third, find a trading mentor, course, program, or coach that appeals to you. For example, I offer courses and programs where I teach people how to trade stock options for income, even if they’re working a fulltime job. I ALSO give them my personal trading system to help them find high-winning trade setups 100x faster than they would without them. If that sounds appealing to you, then congrats! You’ve finished the third step.

Step four, become a focused sponge. Absorb as much information as you can from your trading course, coach, etc but focus on the things that truly resonate with you. Some strategies you learn will stand out more than others… some techniques that you’ll see are going to make more sense than the rest. The best strategy for you to trade is the one that you understand the most, because eventually, that strategy just becomes second nature to trade.

And finally step number five: log into your ThinkOrSwim demo account and practice trading these strategies with paper money. Prove to yourself that you’re actually able to be consistent and profitable BEFORE you start trading with your real money. Since every strategy is different, some you may need to practice for several days and others for several weeks.

So that’s it! One, make sure you have about 30 minutes during the day to trade. Two, take 5 minutes to open a ThinkOrSwim account. Three, find a trading course or coach that appeals to you. Four, learn their trading strategies. And five, practice those strategies before trading real capital.

TRADING WITH INSIGHT: Question #6 What Does “Trading With Insight” Mean?

When I first started trading, I struggled… A LOT! All of the strategies that I was learning and trading were very much opinion-based, and not so much data-driven. I was using moving averages, momentum indicators, volume indicators, etc. to form an “opinion”. It was a very stressful way to trade! I was literally placing trades based off of my emotions and what I “thought” the market was going to do, instead of just letting the market tell me what it’s likely to do.

It was so frustrating and overwhelming, that I eventually just stopped and thought to myself – “…how do I take my opinions and emotions out of my trading? How do I let the market TELL ME what it’s likely to do??” And that’s when I developed my own trading process that I like to call “Insight Trading” also known as “Trading with Insight”.

This process of Trading With Insight is taking the INSIGHT that the chart gives me and then TRADING based on that insight. So what is the “Insight”? It’s simple… win rates! If I see that stock XYZ has a high win rate for bullish trades recently, then I’ve just gained some valuable INSIGHT that I should be TRADING bullish setups on this stock. If I see that stock ABC has a high win rate for recent bearish trade setups, then I now have some great INSIGHT telling me that I should be TRADING bearish trades on this stock. Make sense?

So how exactly do I get that insight? Well, I’ve designed this game-changing tool called the Insight Indicator that automatically finds and calculates these win rates for you. So you literally just look to see which setups have had the highest win rates lately, and you can choose to trade them. It’s literally that simple – you don’t even have to look at your stock charts AT ALL!

You can get this indicator, PLUS our Targets Indicator to compliment it, PLUS our full training course on how to use options to trade using these indicators, PLUS our fully loaded chart layouts PLUS a whole lot more! Check it out —

50% Profit for Nike Trade

Nike has a decent 75% win rate for our Monthly Neutral trade strategy. We opened the trade on September 18th with high hopes! We knew that there was going to be an earnings announcement mid cycle, but Nike was performing “well” during previous earnings, so we weren’t worried. Price did push down immediately following our entry, but our Insight Indicator showed that it wasn’t anything to be concerned with. Fast forward 11 days to the day after the earnings announcement, price jumped back into our range and gave us an even 50% profit. Depending on your account size you would be looking at:

– 1 Contract Traded (for really small accounts) = $104 Profit

– 5 Contracts Traded = $520 Profit

– 10 Contracts Traded = $1,040 Profit

– 20 Contracts Traded = $2,080 Profit

BREAKING NEWS: I’m Quitting Trading!

I’m finally quitting!… Well, sort of, but not exactly 🙂

Here’s the thing: there are two parts to trading for income. The first part is analyzing your charts and finding trade setups. The second part is entering and managing your trades. You guys already know how much I enjoy analyzing charts and trades, finding trade setups, strategically searching for the best entry criteria, etc. That’s always been my passion in this trading industry: ANALYZING! The second part of trading (…managing trades) just isn’t as exciting as it used to be for me.

So, after working with stock options for several years and truly realizing that it’s the analysis that I enjoy about trading, I decided that I wanted to make a change! I wanted to be able to put all of my efforts towards analyzing by (1) teaching others how to analyze charts to find trade setups and (2) analyzing charts for those who don’t want to do it themselves.

So, over the past year, I’ve been slowly transitioning from just being an options trader to being a fulltime stock options analyst and coach. My primary focus is on helping you with your analysis and trading through our training course, custom trading indicators, membership, coaching program, consulting sessions, and running trade simulations!

And yes, people have been wondering if I can still teach others how to trade if I myself am not trading as much anymore… And the answer is ABSOLUTELY! That’s the best part! The options strategies that I’ve traded for income AND the custom indicators that I’ve created for these strategies are evergreenso I’ll always be able to trade them and teach them to anyone who wants to learn. Just like riding a bike – once you get it, you’ve got it!

And in addition to all of that, the truth is that the number of people that I could help far outweighs the number of trades I could ever place. So it’s really a win-win for all of us! It’s certainly not the journey I thought I’d be on when I started trading, but now that I’m here, I realize that this is exactly where I am supposed to be!

TRADING FOR INCOME: Question #5 Do I Need To Use Technical Analysis?

I think technical analysis has become a bigger deal in the trading industry than it needs to be. Especially when it comes to trading Options. Do you really need 8 moving averages, 6 momentum indicators, 7 volume indicators, 15 different trend lines, 20 different levels of support or resistance, and so on? Absolutely NOT!

While technical analysis can be helpful, it’s better that you use it in moderation. That cheesy cliché that you hear in the trading world – “Analysis Paralysis” – it’s a real thing! You can literally analyze your charts to the point that you’re too paralyzed to trade. Why? Because you have 5 indicators saying the stock will go up, 5 showing that it will go down, another 5 saying that it will move sideways, and still another 5 indicators with inconclusive results. How are you supposed to trade like that?

I’ve actually found that one of the best ways to trade is by using technical analysis, but without looking at your charts at all. This allows you to make strategic, data driven decisions instead of decisions based on your gut feeling.

So how do you trade without looking at the charts? We use a process that I’ve developed called “Insight Trading”. All of the technical analysis involved is automatically combined to calculate a win rate for the strategies we trade. That win rate that’s calculated is our “insight”… and that’s literally all of the technical analysis that we need to trade highly successful and profitable trade strategies. The higher the win rate, the higher the chance of profiting on that trade.

My Trading Journey (…in a nutshell)!


After learning about what stock options are, then learning how to analyze charts to find profitable trade setups, I finally started trading options strategies for profit! Now, here I am years later in my trading career as a fulltime Stock Options Analyst and Coach. I focus my time and energy on (A) teaching others how to trade in the stock market for income and (B) analyzing stock charts while running simulated trading scenarios for my clients to help them find ideal trade setups. I absolutely LOVE it!


I started trading on and off for about 4 years straight, not really focusing on any one market or asset in particular. (BTW I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering, so naturally I was drawn to the “numbers” and “analytical thinking” that comes with trading!) I started looking into binary options, then stock shares, forex, crypto currency, etc. And during that time, I learned a lot about technical analysis and how to use it in my trading. The problem in many cases, though, was that it required me to enter trades at the EXACT right moment, or else my trades would have too much risk in them. And unfortunately, I never had the patience to be a day trader or sit and wait around all day for the “exact right moment” to enter trades. I wanted the “trading lifestyle” that gave me more free time in life and less “sitting behind a computer” all day. Needless to say, it was very frustrating! But, the problem wasn’t the technical analysis… the problem was that the markets I was trying to trade didn’t give me the flexibility that I truly wanted…


After seeing what the true problem was, I started focusing solely on trading stock options. It was the only market that would give me the kind of flexibility that I was looking for. I realized with options that I didn’t need an EXACT entry point to place a profitable trade… I just needed to be in the general area! In most cases I even had all day (and sometimes, all week!) to be able to enter that trade. And even better, I didn’t even need to stress over guessing which direction I thought the market was headed. Sure, I could use the technical analysis skills that I learned to increase my chances of winning… but even if I didn’t, I could still place a trade with a 70%-90% probability of success regardless of which direction the market went. It was the most stress-free way of trading that I could find!


Fast forward to today – even though I may not have been trading for 30-40 years like some of the wall street traders and guru investors, understand that it does NOT take nearly that long to learn how to trade. Once you’ve learned some profitable income strategies AND traded them for a few months (to prove that you can earn a consistent income with them), you’re basically set! From there, just continue to learn as you earn!


I immediately saw how trading could truly change not only my life, but others’ as well! So as I was learning more and more, I started sharing my trading knowledge with others. And I loved it! And strangely enough, it turned out that my true passion in this trading industry isn’t just simply placing trades… my true passion is analyzing stock charts and sharing my knowledge, my skills, my experience, etc with others! So, since that is now my main focus, my mission is to teach you some of the options strategies and trading skills that I’ve used in my own trading. That’s the whole reason I created the “Trading With Insight” Course… it’s just for you!

48% Profit for Adobe Trade

We saw an 87.5% win rate for our Monthly Neutral trade setup on Adobe. We opened this trade right at the beginning of the monthly expiration cycle and closed it a few weeks later. Price started moving towards our high target during that time, so we actually did a minor adjustment to shift the entire position up AND to take in even more credit. That worked out pretty well in our favor to allow us to capture a 48% profit. Depending on your account size you would be looking at:

– 1 Contract Traded (for really small accounts) = $84 Profit

– 5 Contracts Traded = $420 Profit

– 10 Contracts Traded = $840 Profit

– 20 Contracts Traded = $1,680 Profit

– 5 Contracts Traded = $510 Profit

– 10 Contracts Traded = $1,020 Profit

– 20 Contracts Traded = $2,040 Profit
