Account Update 7 - $2,022.58 +69% - Account Wide Milestone +100%

Daily Comments

Well, that went well. I’m getting more and more used to streaming as the days go on and I’m getting more and more comfortable calling out plays as well.

Play Breakdowns


Last night it was brought to my attention that BKKT was a candidate for a short squeeze. While it absolutely was, I wasn’t really sure that the stocks sentiment itself would really make that happen. After reviewing our forum DD on the earnings:


I concluded that this would probably get a sentiment bump in the AM. We cut calls near peak, pocketed some profit and moved on while it did its thing. However, later in the day it became clear that the sentiment was turning bearish ahead of earnings so we entered a put position of 2x puts. We rode them down and then cut one for a 26% gain and let the other one ride based on the earnings DD. While optimally, I would’ve held a slightly larger position and pocketed profit into the account and let a small amount of house money ride (let’s say having taken 4 puts, cut 3 of them for 26% and then had 1 free put and some pocketed profit), I’m still happy with having captured profit in the position which makes my singular put that I paid $78 for only cost about $55.

While it needs some further optimization, this was a proper example of playing an earnings report you’re confident in. However, there is a significant likelihood that I’ll wind up -$55 on this play when I would’ve been +$33. 9 times out of 10 its better to cut everything, but if you’re hell bent on gambling earnings, you need to get better at this strategy.


From Russia with love. While Russia didn’t end up invading Ukraine last night, tensions have continued to escalate creating more FOMO into LMT and giving us our beautiful crazy vertical run today of which we were perfectly positioned for:

This trade showcases how to combine news sentiment, technicals and proper trading strategy to catch extremely profitable plays. We averaged down between an end of day low and an intraday pullback, we identified early and inverse head and shoulders and bought the head (the low of the day) and had the confidence to buy both those times because we knew the news was still showing tensions escalating. Then we let our winner run and cut the almost absolute peak intraday by watching SPY and judging when it was done with its FOMC induced pop-off.

Slow, meticulously planned, precision trades are how you generate wealth.

I opted not to reenter LMT this evening because I didn’t want to risk the high amount of capital on the overnight hold when the stock is already so elevated. Instead we opted to make a better entry on XOM which is a stock that could see some correlated upward momentum should tensions continue to escalate.


FOMC minutes were today so I took a call earlier in the day at what I correctly read to be near the intraday bottom (SPY loves to essentially trade sideways into FOMC minutes releases). This was somewhat misplayed as theta chipped away at the call price itself throughout the day leaving me somewhat negative into the release. Had I waited until just before the release (roughly 1:45ish) I probably would’ve gotten a far better entry and made some more profit.

My home internet went out in the middle of the release so I cut this from my phone. Ended up turning a quick 20% profit on one FD call so I can’t complain.


Alongside LMT, we had calls on XOM which experienced a similar run-up this morning based off of escalating Russia tensions. We cut the peak and basically left the stock alone for the rest of the day. A lot of times we feel like we need to keep playing the same ticker over and over again immediately but this is often a mistake:

We sold that early open peak and as you can see, if we had tried to take a reentry at almost any point today, we would’ve ended down. So because we moved on and concentrated on our more bullish prospects, we were then provided with an opportunity (and the capital to be able to make use of) a bounce off support just heading into close.

Closing Thoughts

Its hilarious how proud I get of these small account gains. Crossing 100% today was pretty big for me, I’m not going to lie. The idea of streaming while trading has always put me off, so many things that can go wrong and the added pressure of knowing there are 100 something people focused on what I’m doing can easily distract from making profitable trades. But I think a balance has been achieved. I’m so proud of this community in this moment. I’ve got to watch the trading in the server get objectively better over the last week and a half. I’m seeing people trade more responsibly, regularly cash out gains and become more profitable traders as a result.

This is what we do this for. For all the negative that people have said about this place recently, at the end of the day this has always been what our community has been about; genuinely helping people to better their lives through trading. I’m proud of you guys, all of you and thank you for your support when things may have not looked so bright. Your belief in me is not something that is lost on me at all, in fact its something that I think about very often.

The best retail trading community in existence.

Thanks so much Conq for running this. I’ve actually been lurking since IRNT and trying to form my trading strategy, but I have to send my appreciation. The impact of the psychological training from this challenge far exceeds the TA/fundamentals/etc. techniques that I’ve mostly unsuccessfully applied over the past year. With this challenge, I find myself being more patient, less FOMO-y, and more appreciative of every dollar I put in.

I’m happy to report I’m tracking pretty close to your results in the challenge. However, I’m making sure I make my own entries and exits, and apply what I learned to my own trades (ex. did some extra SPY and TSLA trades this week that contribute to the overall gain):

Now I just need to be careful of those 2 GFVs I sustained from selling LMT and SPY today :man_shrugging:


thank you i will look out for it tmr since im off.

Lmao of course its up +69%


Yeah even when spy dropped to 442.68 area at 1:45 I was still up 10% on the 2/16/ call I bought at 1:38. In hindsight I really do need to just set a stop at like 30% profit so I don’t have to try and get limit fills while its taking turns swinging calls and puts into profit at 2:00

Conq, just incredible! Thanks so much, Papa!

WLYOLO: here’s the link to today’s stream. each day is a different link but you can subscribe to the channel and then view the following day:


Gotta confess that after you mentioned - over and over again - the compounding profit calculator I decided to check it and completely changed my style of trading. At the same time you announced the challenge I decided to challenge myself as well. Have been focusing on 3.5% daily gains (over total account, focusing on 1M by my bday lol). Today I’ve reached 98.66% gains (which I’m calling it 100 cause why not) after 12 trading days!

The stream is highly appreciated and I like seeing the drawings, patterns, and also trading style + risk tolerance. I’m sure I still need to learn a lot but I’m glad you helped changing my mind in some meaningful way when it comes to compounding instead of looking one big win. I HATE GAMBLING!


Watching this challenge has been fantastic so far, it’s exciting to see where this can go and for the server to be rallying around this.

Thanks again for all that you’re doing with this :pepepray:


This has been a tremendous experience this far and I can’t say enough about how helpful everybody has been in this community, thank you


Thank you to @Conqueror and all of the higher ups. It’s really amazing to see how much we’ve rebounded from the start of 2022. It’s been amazing interacting with everyone on TF and VC. Keep it up, til Valhalla!


thank you very much.


Been loving the stream. Appreciate these write ups too, it’s really helpful to review at the end of the day. Here’s to the next 100%


This is my first day actively participating and I’m up 12% on the day. It’s tough to watch the stream while working but the forum posts and challenge alerts in discord make things easy enough to follow. Really love what you are doing here. This was such a fantastic idea! Keep up the great work with the Challenge and Valhalla
