What a difference a decade makes …
Ten years ago, Tim Grittani wasn’t a trading legend. He hadn’t made trading profits over $ 13.5 million. * He was not the creator of Trading Tickers and Trading Tickers 2.
At least not yet.
A decade ago, Tim Grittani was a 20-year-old kid from the Midwest. He worked for an insurance agency in the summer and dreamed of a better life.
Then he discovered my trading challenge and decided to learn about penny stocks. He had no way of knowing that he was embarking on the journey of his life …
It’s crazy to think how much he’s accomplished in the past 10 years. Talk about the student becoming a teacher … Tim Grittani made about twice as much profit as I did in about half the time. * I couldn’t be more proud … I want more students to beat my trading profits! *
Ready to be inspired? Let’s take a trip back in time and explore a truly mind-boggling decade of studying, learning and doing …
Tim Squared: The email that started it all
These days, I’m not just a Tim Grittani teacher. We are close friends. I’ve seen him celebrate milestones like getting married and having two children in the world.
I didn’t know Tim in 2011. He was a brand new student who started Pennystocking Silver before moving up to the Trading Challenge.
But I could tell that he was driving when he sent me this email on May 17th, 2011 …
Grittani’s email from 10 years ago
I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for everything you do. I’ve been trading for about 3 weeks now, and while I still don’t have enough cash to open an Interactive Brokers account and sell stocks, you can be sure it’s on my radar! But in the meantime, I’ve followed your long games and learned with everyone. I met JBII because I lasted far too long, but I managed to apply that lesson to TISA and STVI to make a profit.
I’d especially like to thank STVI for the early heads-ups that you may play on short notice if it breaks out. I took a slightly longer position and got in at $ 2.55 last Friday. Then I sold them today just before the easily predictable breakdown at $ 2.89. Would have been out in the 2 90s but could get an execution, well. My best deal by far!
Hope you will continue to keep us updated on possible games despite the idiots who can’t figure out when to buy, despite your clear outline. Keep it going! Hopefully next year I can buy some of your Pennystocking DVDs and get on board with Pennystock Millionaire too. Hell, if I have a little more time, I might also take part in the internship or the challenge! You are a fantastic teacher and I can’t wait to keep learning, thank you again!
– Tim Grittani
It was great to see a student who is clearly dedicated and enthusiastic about trading. But I had no idea that I was talking to a future trading legend …
$ 1,500 to $ 13.5 million: It didn’t happen overnight
Grittani blew up two trading accounts before becoming a profitable trader. *
He had studied finance in college. As a result, he had tried to understand the financial world better – but he lost most of what he had deposited into his original account.
He realized that he needed better training if he was to get the trade going.
Then he found me.
For the first three months he only studied – no trading. He dived into my video courses and followed the chat room.
When he was ready to start trading again, he started with $ 1,500. Over the next six months, he blew up his account and had to recharge it.
It wasn’t profitable at all for the first nine months.
Would you be willing to stick with it for nine months or more without making any money?
I want everyone to see this video because Grittani explains what kept him going …
Turnaround through tracking data
It’s hard to overstate the benefits of keeping a trade journal. By keeping track of your own trading stats, you can better understand what works for you – and what doesn’t.
By keeping track of his data, Tim was able to identify and focus on what was working. Then things began to change for him.
He continued to adapt and refine and improve. Singles added up. Over time, he was able to slowly increase his positions. His profits began to grow. By early 2013, he made over $ 100,000 in profit. Then by the end of the same year it had passed the million dollar mark. *
That kind of exponential growth isn’t common, but I’ve seen it more than once. Take, for example, my student and 30-day bootcamp staff member, Matthew Monaco.
In the summer of 2020, I announced its $ 100,000 earnings milestone. In early 2021, I announced that it had passed the million dollar mark. Matt currently has a trading profit of over $ 1.6 million in late May 2021. * And he just released a new crypto boot camp and warning system …
Not all smooth sailing
Until 2014, Tim Grittani was largely considered a retail success story. * In retrospect, however, he points to the period between 2014 and 2015 as one of his “worst” trading times.
Technically it was green. But he wasn’t doing it as well as he thought possible because he was deviating from one simple rule …
Reduce losses quickly.
He became persistent when it came to reducing losses.
Case in point: his staggering loss of $ 290,000 Lakeland Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: SEE) … He actually wrote a blog post describing the entire excruciating experience. Read it before you stop and hope …
Fortunately, his losses threw him back to reality.
It was during this time that Grittani learned one of the most important lessons traders can learn. There is literally never a point where you know everything. It’s humble, clear. But it can also be a source of motivation to keep learning.
What is important to Tim Grittani now?
Grittani has a lot of money. * He lives with his lovely family on a tropical island.
Yet he remains one of the most humble and giving people I know …
Here’s a great example of Grittani giving back to the trading community.
In June 2020, he had his biggest win to date – a profit of $ 272,000 CytoDyn Inc. (OTCPK: CYDY). *
How did he celebrate? By offering to offer Trading Challenge students a webinar that breaks down the trade. It was a great webinar by the way. There are 15 takeaways here.
Then he went on the TWIST podcast to discuss this trade and more. Check out this awesome TWIST episode here.
Seriously. That guy! His willingness to be so open and helpful with others even after he has achieved his success is an inspiration.
Grittani’s blockbuster commercial DVDs
If you ask my junior students what educational resources have helped them the most …
Many of them mention Grittani’s Trading Tickers.
For example, millionaire Roland Wolf refers to “Trading Tickers” to help him really understand how trading works.
Some of the aspiring traders featured in this post also mention him by name …
More recently, Grittani followed suit with “Trading Tickers 2” … The enthusiasm so far has been unbelievable.

Here’s how to get Trading Tickers 2.
For many more decades
Tim Grittani has had a really excellent trading adventure over the past decade.
Don’t get me wrong, his results are exceptional. Not every trader will reach their level of profitability. However, I love to share his story because it shows what is possible in the world of trading.
Grittani is not a math genius. He’s not the happiest man in the world either. He’s just a Midwestern guy who was obsessed with the stock market. Grittani stuck with it, grew over time, and ended up making millions. *
Are you inspired by his story? Are you ready to be disciplined and study hard? If so, apply for my Trading Challenge.

It takes years of dedication, hard work, and discipline to learn how to act. Individual results vary. Trading is inherently risky. Before entering into a trade, remember to do your due diligence and never risk more than you can afford to lose. I also hired Grittani, Matt, and Roland to help in my education business.
