Which Side Are You On?
The wealth that’s created in the stock market doesn’t just magically appear out of nowhere. It gets passed from investor to investor. What many fail to recognize is this simple, but incredibly important principle: Every trade has a winner and a loser.
Trading Is A Zero-Sum Game
The way this wealth gets distributed among the players is what economists call a zero-sum game - meaning money flows from weak hands to strong hands. While it’s true that the profit “pie” expands, and offers an opportunity for all investors to make money, the way the profits are distributed is very uneven.
The Pecking Order
There is a clearly defined Pecking Order among investors, and profits flow from the bottom to the top. Those who are at the bottom are a source of profit for those at the top.
At the bottom are the 95 million “great unwashed masses” of small, retail investors who don’t have access to high quality advice and guidance. At the top there are roughly 100,000 investing “elites” who consistently (and happily) extract profits from everyone else. These investing elites, with the help of the best minds in the wealth management business, fleece the lambs in a well-organized, almost choreographed way.
You Can Play To Win
My name is T. Erik Conley, and after 30 years as a professional trader and money manager, I know how the investment game is played at the highest level. By the time I left Wall Street to start my own firm, I was working exclusively with ultra high net worth clients – the ones you’ll find at the very top of the investment pecking order.
The firms I worked for catered exclusively to wealthy families, foundations, and endowments. In order to become a client, you had to have at least $10 million – just to walk in the door. The average client in my book of business had an investable net worth of more than $35 million – an amount out of reach for most people looking to grow their portfolios in order to build and maintain a comfortable lifestyle.
By the spring of 2001, I had reached the top echelons of the investment profession, and I was being well-rewarded for helping the uber-rich get even richer. But there was something missing.
Then one day I woke up and realized what it was. I was playing for the wrong team. I realized that what I really wanted to do is help people get to the top, not just stay at the top of the pecking order. I wanted to show people how to stop being a source of profit for these elite clients. So I switched sides and became a coach, a mentor, and an advocate for the kinds of clients who truly need my help, and who stand to benefit the most from what I have to offer.
If you are willing to put in a little work up front, and approach investing with an open mind, I can teach you how to move up the pecking order. With a little help, and some skill training, you can stop being a source of profits for the elites at the top, and start competing at a higher level than you might have ever thought possible.
Knowledge Alone Is Not Enough
In addition to what you currently know about investing, you should also be aware of a dangerous trap to avoid, if you want to become consistently profitable.
The #1 mistake most people make when trying to learn how to trade and invest successfully is that they think that knowledge alone is the answer. And frankly, the elites are quite happy to continue perpetuating this myth, because they know the money will continue to flow from your hands to theirs.
Unfortunately, the way many people try to switch sides and come out a winner is by seeking more and more information, or looking for that perfect system that will beat the market every time. But here’s the truth- if there was really a magic formula that always worked, everyone would be using it – and the market couldn’t exist. Again, the market can only exist as long as there are those willing to give their money away, and those waiting patiently to take it.
So, what can you do to stop being among the 95 million who will continue to make the elites richer and richer while your wealth gets eaten away?
If you are serious about making money and holding on to what you gain, then why not work and train with someone who understands the game and can teach you how to compete at the highest levels of skill and competence?
