Chris’ note: Longtime readers know colleague William Mikula as Teeka Tiwari’s righthand man and income expert at Palm Beach Research Group. Together, they’ve notched a 179-trade win streak since the start of 2016. And 98% of their trades have closed as winners since William joined the team in 2013.
Any trader can have a winning year in a bull market. But keeping up that track record consistently, through volatility and bear markets… that takes real talent and drive.
It’s all thanks to William’s relentless focus on managing risk, delivering value, and constructing market-beating trades for readers.
Below, he shares how it all started when Wall Street tried to extinguish his dad’s American dream… and why this motivated William to be better than Wall Street’s best traders.
If you want a shot at beating these elites and fulfilling your own American dream, Teeka is hosting a free event tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET. He’ll reveal all the details about the “Anomaly Window” strategy he and William use to get even with Wall Street. William will tell you more about this event below…
My experience with Wall Street started when I was a kid…
In the mid-1980s, my family lived in Saudi Arabia. My father worked as an oil rig foreman for a major energy firm based in Houston.
We evacuated Saudi Arabia when Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990. The oil business paid great money, but the risks were large. And my father had a young – and growing – family to think of.
That’s why he ultimately decided to try his hand at insurance. It was his American dream to start his own business… buy a home… and raise his family.
So he took most of his savings and plowed them into an insurance franchise back in the U.S. He took the balance of his savings and invested it with a Wall Street broker who sold him on large returns with little risk.
My father’s insurance business was commission-only. He needed other income streams working for him while the business grew.
I’m sure you can imagine where this story is going…
Today, I’ll tell you how the outcome led me to one of the biggest financial discoveries of my life.
The slick Wall Street broker proceeded to lose every penny my father invested with him. Once the money was gone, so was the broker. Unreachable. Vanished.
The loss strained our family’s finances. My father had to let go of his secretary. He couldn’t afford her salary anymore.
At the time, my mother was pregnant with my sister. She had no experience with insurance. And she was at the point in her pregnancy where she could go into labor at any moment.
But she knew my father needed help. The business was growing, but it was also burning through cash fast – as any startup does.
My mother stepped up to the plate – and helped keep my dad’s dream alive.
I remember her dutifully driving me to the office with her every single day. She would post up in a beaten-down office chair and man – or woman – the phones all day. My father sold policies door to door, while my mother handled paperwork and collections on the back end.
It was a stressful time. A small office in a run-down strip mall became my second home. All the while, the topic of how to pay the monthly bills – and make up for lost money – was an ever-present dark cloud over our family.
This experience left a lasting impression on me. In fact, looking back now, it was the catalyst that sent me on my path to become a trader.
You see, at a young age, I learned not to trust the Wall Street establishment… and to go against the grain.
To be fair, I’m sure there are plenty of great brokers out there. And the one that bilked my family was a bad apple.
But when you’re young and impressionable, this kind of story puts a chip on your shoulder.
That chip led me to study business and finance.
My goal was never to be good. It was to be great – the best. And above all, to be better than the slickest traders on Wall Street.
So far, I’ve done that. Since I joined Palm Beach Research Group, I’ve made 365 trades and closed 357 of them for wins. That’s a 98% win rate. Since January 2016, we’ve been on a 179-trade win streak.
My winning track record is why PBRG guru Teeka Tiwari asked me to join his exclusive Alpha Edge service.
But it’s more than just my track record that gained Teeka’s attention. You see, like me, Big T came from humble beginnings…
Longtime Cut readers already know his story – how he grew up in a foster home… came to the U.S. from England with $150 in his pockets and the shirt on his back… and climbed the corporate ladder to become the youngest vice president in Wall Street firm Shearson Lehman’s history.
Despite our successes, neither Big T nor I have forgotten our roots. We understand how hard it is for ordinary people to achieve their American dreams – especially in today’s uncertain economic environment.
That’s why today, I’m sharing an idea I believe can help you take a giant leap toward achieving your American dream in as little as 42 days…
I could’ve remained angry at Wall Street for undercutting my dad’s American dream. Instead, I decided to get even. Like Big T, I wanted to turn the tables on the Wall Street elite in favor of the little guy.
So we’re lifting the lid on one of the stock market’s most profitable strategies. While Wall Street has been telling ordinary folks like my dad to wait for years to achieve their American dreams… it’s been using this little-known strategy to pull 39 years’ worth of profits forward in 42 days.
The strategy involves what Teeka calls “Anomaly Windows.” They last only a few weeks… but they pop up like clockwork. And Wall Street has tried to keep them closed to ordinary investors for years.
When these windows open, a handful of “boring” blue-chip stocks become electrifying.
For example, during the last three Anomaly Windows, stocks including Home Depot (HD), Cardinal Health (CAH), and American Express (AXP) have delivered gains of 1,500%, 3,000%, and 6,150%, respectively.
That’s why, tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET, Teeka is hosting an event called How to Buy Back 20 Years of Your Life. He’ll explain how these Anomaly Windows can lead to extraordinary gains on blue-chip stocks.
Under normal market conditions, these gains would take decades to achieve… In fact, if you were to buy and hold the S&P 500 index, it would take you nearly 40 years to see similar gains.
This event is already free to attend. But to make it even more worthwhile, Teeka will give you four free gifts for showing up… including his full list of stocks to trade during the next Anomaly Window.
And if you’re wondering how my family’s story turned out…
My father ended up building a thriving insurance business that’s still taking care of policyholders and generating profits 30 years later.
My mother was able to retire from the hand-me-down office furniture… raise four children… and not lose her sanity in the process.
Finally, I taught my father many of the same trading strategies Teeka and I use during the Anomaly Window. He salvaged his retirement account and is now beating Wall Street.
