Is There a Right Time to Start Trading? (My 2020 Tips)

January 14, 2020

– What’s up, Tim Sykes,
Millionaire Mentor and trader here in Tulum, Mexico. Look at this beautiful area. I’m not just here to enjoy, we actually opened up
10 different libraries with my charity Karmagawa. A great way to end the year, going strong with my co-founder Matt Abad who’s out enjoying himself right now. But I just wanna thank all of you. And I’m here for you in
so many different ways. I don’t know if you realizes this, but I’m not just a stock trader. I’m not just a traveler, I don’t just build schools. I’m a teacher too. I’m here to answer all of your questions. So DM me, hit me up with
any questions you have about finance, trading,
traveling, charities, sushi, these are the things I know about. And a lot of people ask me, like oh I wanna get
involved in the stock market maybe one day after I graduate college, or maybe after I don’t have
this job that I hate anymore. You have to start studying now, okay. The stock market, which
has changed my life, and now it’s changed several
of my top students’ lives. You know I have five millionaire students and dozens of students who
are earning six figures. It takes time to master. And we’re all slightly different. You know I have several
successful students but they don’t even need me anymore, they became self sufficient, they found which of my patterns worked and then they kind of altered them. They kind of made them
work better for themselves based on their own personality, their schedule. Some people like holding
stocks for a few minutes, some like a few hours, some like a few days or weeks. You can really tailor the stock market and finance to you and your schedule and your personality. And your strengths and weaknesses. And in order to find that, in order to fine tune everything, you have to kind of treat this like one
big science experiment. And I know people are like what, the stock market isn’t
a science experiment, just invest in good companies. Yeah, that might make you a millionaire like 30, 50, 100 years from now. And then when you get that
rich you can buy yourself a titanium hip because
you’re gonna be so old you’re gonna need hip replacement surgery. I want you to get richer sooner. And it’s not gonna
happen overnight, right? There’s no truly hot sector right now. Like Bitcoin isn’t that hot, weed stocks aren’t that hot. Biotech is heating up though. But long story short, if you ask me, and this is like the
number one question I get, like how do I get started, when should I get started? Get started now. Start tinkering, trying
different strategies. Whether you like day trading, whether you like investing
in the long term, whether you just like saving Money and you don’t like trading at all. You don’t have to be a stock trader or an investor. Just start thinking about finance now. If there’s one thing I can teach you, hopefully I can influence
you in any way whatsoever, start thinking about money, ’cause I know it’s complicated. I know math isn’t fun. I know it’s not fun, like
if you don’t have a lot of, have a lot of money and you’re just like eh this, ah I don’t wanna think about it. Trust me, do it, okay. I got started with just
a few thousand dollars. My top student started with just $1500. He’s now closing in on nine million so he’s made nearly double what
I’ve made in half the time. But I’m also traveling, I’m trading with a small account. I donate all my trading
profits to charity these days. So we have different goals. I used to think I was gonna try to manage like a billion dollar hedge fund. I had a hedge fund with a few million, I sucked at it. I wasn’t very good. I’m better at trading a small account and growing that. And I’m better frankly at teaching. So I think you have to be honest with yourself about your
current financial situation, what your goals are, what you want out of the stock market, what you want out of life. Because no matter what
you want out of life, we need money. Okay, unless you’re born
with a lot of money, and then your head’s probably screwed up like a lot of trust fund babies. I feel for you guys. Just lower your anti-depressants. Don’t drink so much. Just figure it out. Get like a therapist or something. But if you’re not born with
a silver spoon in your mouth, if you’re born with nothing or very little money, you have to figure out how
can you grow your net worth? How can you grow your savings? And it starts with you starting today, figuring out what can
you invest some money in? Even if you just start with like $50 invested in Apple or Google, that’s fine. I don’t think that’s the best
way to make a lot of money, but at least it gets you started thinking about finance, thinking about how can you
increase your net wealth? How can you increase your accounts and your worth over time so that you can have your
money working for you. Not that you have to
work for somebody else with a boss that you hate, at a job that you that, or you spend like a decade in school and you get some crappy job, and then you’re in student
Loan debt hell forever. I don’t want that. I get so many sad messages
from people, be better. Start today. Start poking around on the internet. Ask questions. Ask me questions. Start looking at thousands
of video lessons, right? I have a thousand plus free
video lessons on YouTube. It doesn’t matter where you start because it’s not gonna be a
fun process in the beginning. It’s not gonna be exciting. But over time, if you put
in let’s say an hour a day, or even an hour a week into learning about finance and learning
about different investments and becoming self sufficient, not giving into these BS schemes. Binary options are a joke. 4X is a joke. I know a lot of people think penny stocks are a joke, but frankly if you watch
my thousand video lessons you’ll see that there are
some very predictable patterns that go on because most people who trade penny stocks (beep) morons. So for me I’m competing
against (beep) morons and that’s why I win more. It’s like competing against
a midget in basketball, I’m just blocking the midget every day. But that’s another story. You don’t necessarily have
to trade penny stocks. But just start thinking about finance, start thinking about how
you can have your money, whatever money, whether it’s $50 or $500 or $500,000 work for you. Because the more time your
alive your money should be adding up over time. And whether it’s two years,
five years, 10 years, 20 years from now, if you start planning and you start really
learning about this stuff, and harnessing enough knowledge to grow your account, and you have two accounts by the way. One more analogy before I go. You have a monetary account which is like how much
you have in your account, and you have a knowledge account. You need to start filling
up your knowledge account, getting all that knowledge, and eventually it’s gonna tip over into your monetary account. I use that analogy with
my students all the time, they love it. That’s what it comes down to. You’re not gonna make a lot of money if you don’t have a lot of knowledge. And if you do make a lot of money without a lot of knowledge you’re probably gonna lose it, like most Bitcoin people did. I’m sorry, the world
isn’t changing that fast. Maybe Bitcoin will do well in the next few years and decades, but literally every sketchy person that I know deals in Bitcoin. Do you really wanna be
that sketchy person? No, come on, be better, use normal Money. At least for now, maybe in
the future I could be wrong. But at least just start learning, start growing your knowledge account, start studying, see what you like, see what you don’t like, maybe you are a sketchy person. Maybe you’re a drug dealer and you love Bitcoin, God bless you, just stop dealing dope to kids, it’s not a future man, come on. I gotta be real with you, okay, that’s what I’m trying to be here. You’re not gonna get rich overnight, but you can start studying overnight. That is step number one. So, again, DM me, hit me
up with any questions, start Googling around about
different financial videos. Start laughing at all the
scams that are out there. Start thinking about how you can become self sufficient over time. And, again, in a few years, a few decades from now, you’re gonna thank me
that you got started today instead of waiting till later. Hey, Tim Sykes, Millionaire
Mentor and Trader, thank you for watching my videos. I hope that they help you. I wanna share everything that
I’ve learned over the years. You can check out more
videos right over there. And also click subscribe
so that you can watch all of these videos, get that knowledge and become my next millionaire student.

    How can we find out the total cost of starting out. By 'total' I mean not just the size of the account, but all the other costs and rents aswell. And also any added costs for trading from the UK? Once I've covered costs of software, brokering, chatrooms, tutoring etc, itd be good to know what's left for the account. That's my present headache.

    For the starter: ( did tons of study)
    1. Do I look for high percentage stocks only? Or even if 2-3% return potential tickers?
    2. Your check list is no where to be found although the in the past 6 months I watched it but want to watch it again. Where can I find it?

    One way to ease into it: try starting with $100. Each time you make the account gain 50% on the year, deposit the current balance. It doesn't matter what you start with. If you don't turn a profit with a small account, you're not going to grow a larger one.
