There’s an old saying that goes, the early bird gets the profits.
All kidding aside, mornings actually offer some of the biggest profit opportunities.
Even if you’re not a morning person, per se, I have a way you can take advantage of them.
Experienced day traders know the first hour of the trading day is the best time to make money.
Volume and volatility are typically much higher first thing in the morning than at other times of the day.
This is because the market is factoring in any relevant news (economic data, earnings releases, tariff headlines, etc.) that has occurred since the previous day’s closing bell.
Since the first hour of trading generally sees the largest moves in the shortest amount of time, this means it also offers the greatest profit opportunities for traders — especially options traders who can take advantage of the incredible leverage options provide.
I see the proof of this day in and day out with my Trade Of The Day.
The Trade Of The Day represents the single option trade I believe is the best bet for traders’ money on a given day.
I deliver it to members’ email inboxes 30 minutes prior to the market open each day.
The alert contains my thoughts on how the market will trade that day, along with a specific option trade on SPY, the highly liquid ETF that tracks the S&P 500 and my trading vehicle of choice.
The trade is simple. Buy to open followed by sell to close (I even text it to members).
The idea is to collect your profits within a few minutes of initiating the trade and move on with your day, a little richer than when you woke up.
Check out how it’s working for some actual traders just like you:
I see comments like this from members outperforming markets all the time. (See how they’re able to do this with consistency with this brief guide.)
How I Get A Jump On The Trading Day
I’ve always been an early riser. And when I say “early,” I mean it. To select the Trade Of The Day, I wake up every day at 3 a.m.
While some people are just hitting their REM cycle, I’m hitting the gym.
In my early 20s, I used to work as a personal trainer. I absolutely loved helping people get in shape and lead healthier lives. But, I quickly learned that a personal trainer’s salary wasn’t going to afford me the life I dreamed of for me and my family.
As I transitioned from a gym rat to the options buff before you today, I never lost my desire to train people.
Only now, I train them on how to make money using a unique-but-simple system I’ve developed to help traders generate profits daily.
Waking up at 3 a.m. gives me a six-and-a-half-hour jump on the trading day.
After I get in my daily workout, I immediately start homing in on overseas trading action and analyzing charts, headlines and data.
Another reason mornings are the best time to trade is because there are a number of clues that can help traders discern which direction the market will head at the beginning of the day — and that is half the battle!
One of the biggest clues about how U.S. markets will trade is how Asian and European markets trade.
I have always paid close attention to Asian markets and currencies.
But with trade wars being one of the most talked-about topics on Wall Street, it’s even more critical now.
What happens in Asian markets often carries over to European markets, and this, in turn, carries over into U.S. markets.
For instance, if European markets are trading green, the carry-over effect may lead to a green open in the U.S. as well.
On the other hand, if European markets are trading red, U.S. markets are likely to trade down as well.
After I research what is happening overseas, I look for any potential market-moving news — economic data, earnings reports, Fed announcements, etc. — that may occur on that day and impact how stocks trade.
Then, I turn to support and resistance levels. I include key support and resistance levels in every Trade Of The Day email so members know exactly what levels to watch for.
I also use these levels to set entry triggers, as well as profit targets.
I’ve found that support and resistance hold up particularly well in the first hour of trading — another reason mornings are the best time to trade.
Now, I know waking up at 3 a.m. to research trades isn’t feasible (or even desirable) for most people. Luckily, you can let me do the heavy lifting for you.
For a limited time, I’m offering traders access to my e-book, 4 Steps To Success With The Trade Of The Day.
In it, I cover:
- What the Trade Of The Day is
- How I scan for morning direction
- How I identify support and resistance
- How I create easy-to-execute trade plans
If you’re interested in finding out how you can use my system to generate daily profits — often within a matter of minutes — this is a must-read.
As I said, it’s only available for a limited time, so act now.
