Another Million-Dollar Pandemic Trade


Simpler Trading Team

3 min read

At Simpler Trading our biggest asset is our people. The information, resources, and experience our traders deliver is invaluable.

And the leader of our team – who developed this dynamic community of like-minded people – has accomplished something most traders only dream about.

He hit another $1 million trade.

This is his second million-dollar trade this year.

Since the beginning of 2020, he has quadrupled his trading account.

All of this during a market hard-hit by a pandemic.

This is the third million-dollar trade of his career, and the first prompted his best-selling book “Mastering The Trade.”

John Carter, founder of Simpler Trading, is our “Friday Feature” this week. He headlines this highlight of the newsletter where we present one of our traders making an impact in the Simpler community.

John has been a full-time trader since 1996. In 1999, tired of talking to his goldfish while trading alone in his office, John launched an online service to post his trading ideas. The company has since evolved into today’s Simpler Trading.

John is the trading expert everyone turns to when the markets go awry (as they often do), and many of Simpler’s traders have taken ideas and methods from him and morphed them into their own strategies. He exudes a level of charisma that draws people in, which has transformed him into the affable and approachable trader he is today.

The goal behind Simpler Trading is to continue developing a community of traders who educate others simply because they care about people’s prosperity. John’s setups, market knowledge, and guidance focus on improving each person as an individual trader.

John’s trading strategy combines expert technical analysis with an overall macro, fundamental view to lead him to fast-moving, profitable trades.

The latest million-dollar trade was in TSLA earlier this month where the stock was nearing new highs with earnings on the horizon. John’s key indicators, which center around the squeeze, signaled that the stock price would move higher on larger than usual trading volume.

The result was $1 million added to his trading account for the second time in just a few months.

This is what John loves to do – make money trading and share the technical analysis and reasoning of the setups with other traders.

His willingness to dive deeper into the “how to” of these big-time trades allows other traders to scale his strategies into their own trading plan.

His “keeping it Simpler” philosophy is what drives everything in our trading community.

John doesn’t rest on his laurels after big trades. He jumps right back into the markets and is an inspiration through his work ethic.

To that end, John is cutting loose Wednesday, July 22, with a special session covering how he catches big trades. This free presentation is for anyone who wants to:

John has traded through all types of markets from the crash to 911 recovery to the 2008-2009 financial crisis to today’s pandemic-infused mania.
