Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or ignoring my emails), you’ve probably noticed the market meltdown that’s taking place this week.
On Tuesday, the S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSEARCA: SPY) cratered into a jaw-dropping single-day dump, shedding more than 4% of the index and capping off its worst day since 2020.
During weeks such as this one, I’m reminded of the many reasons why I’m grateful to be a trader.
I think I have the best job in the world, but some people have it all wrong.
Let me explain…
You see, a lot of ‘investors’ are panicking right now. I can’t blame them…
Once the closing bell rings each day, they’re powerless to do anything but wait until the open and see what happens
Meanwhile, experienced traders are licking their chops and scalping the volatility to their advantage.
Speaking of experienced traders, my mentor Tim Sykes is hosting a special EMERGENCY conference TONIGHT alongside millionaire trader Matt Monaco…

Now, back to why I love trading so much…
Traders sleep well at night because we usually end the day in all cash.
I don’t want Evolvers to mistake any of this or get the wrong idea about trading.
There are so many reasons for you to aspire to a career as a trader.
Keep reading and I’ll tell you about a few of them…
The best part about trading is its ability to give you personal freedom. Take it from me…
I can trade from anywhere. Furthermore, I can choose when I want to trade (and when I want to sit on the sidelines). I wouldn’t have it any other way.
That said, it isn’t easy to become a professional trader. There are no guarantees of success.
But if you work hard to find a consistent strategy that fits your goals, you can potentially experience the kind of freedom I’m talking about.
As most of you know, I have a wife and three young children. My family is the most important thing in my life.
But if I had to go to a 9-5 job five days a week, I would miss out on a lot of quality family time I currently enjoy. I’d also miss a big part of my kids growing up.
Instead, I have the power to do whatever I want whenever I want.
Why Elon Musk is Probably Laughing Right Now
These days it seems like everybody wants to take their shot at Elon Musk.
And yet – Tim Bohen thinks he’s gotta be laughing his ass off right now.
You’ll see what he means when you watch this video.
I can trade from anywhere, be it my office at home or on a yacht sailing the high seas. That’s priceless.
Total personal freedom is a unique benefit of being a trader … I can’t overstate its importance.
No ‘401(k) Stress’
This week, the vast majority of market participants are PANICKING with ‘401(k) stress.’
And quite frankly, I can’t fault them for feeling down.
They have no choice but to watch their long-term stock portfolios lose value day after day, week after week.
I have sympathy for anyone who’s diligently invested and then seen their savings evaporate in a market correction.
So far, this entire year has been a bloodbath for investors.
On the other hand, these atypical market conditions have created a wonderful environment for traders.
Volume and volatility are two of the qualities I most look forward to in the market and right now we’re seeing both explode to the upside.
The single-day % moves we’re seeing in individual stocks are absolutely incredible.
If you can’t see this week for what it is — a mind-blowing opportunity to trade unprecedented price swings — you probably shouldn’t be considering trading in the first place.
In case you didn’t notice, I love to trade.
And I want YOU to understand how life-changing a career as a trader can be.
Is it easy? Of course not…
But you’re aspiring to something worth working hard for. And few can say this without doubting themselves.
