What’s John’s secret? His proven trade checklist
Learn how John wires out weekly gains like clockwork
In the process of growing his $10k account by 340% in 2020, John Carter, Founder of Simpler Trading, discovered ways to make the strategy even more adaptive to fast-changing market conditions.
His proven strategy now includes new setups specifically intended to work in trending and consolidating market conditions.
As before, “Small Account Secrets 2021” supports John’s goal of generating exponential gains each week. The built-in Net Liquidating Value (NLV) money management system helps him target at least 2.5% to 5% returns each week. That puts his annual goal between 120% and 240% (which John outperformed in 2020 with an extraordinary 340% return under bizarre circumstances).
That’s how John was able to catch this ROKU upside explosion…
This is a $1,000 trade for small accounts made in under three hours. John didn’t know it would be such a big move, but he knew it was a solid “small account” setup so he didn’t hesitate.
With the “Small Account Secrets 2021” strategy, John has shown it is possible to enjoy explosive gains without getting your head ripped off by fast-changing market conditions.
Get ‘in sync’ with fast moves in an uncertain market
The markets often tend to shift into new phases. When traders start to struggle, it is usually because their strategy might be out of sync with the current conditions. The volatility alone can erase your capital in a flash.
As founder of Simpler Trading, John’s mission is to teach the dynamic strategy he’s refined over the past 30 years, including his latest updates for the post-2020 “new normal.”
How does he stay on the right side of market swings? John follows a simple “market sync” checklist to trade with the market and not against it.

Here’s what others say about trading with John Carter’s strategy:
“It always seems more simple trading alongside you, JC. Thank you so much for the insights and the opportunity to swing the club.”
“many thanks for your class - i always love the psychological nuggets - big aha this time is truly just to accept the risk, and let go of the outcome...you really have been a huge help, stretching beyond just trading! thanks again”
“If anyone is having second thoughts or are in doubt following JC and the Simpler team is the best career change / life changing decision I have ever made? about exactly a year ago!”
“Aha moment - all these formulas for getting out of trades. Takes the thinking out of it. Worth the price of admission right there!!”
“I have learned so much in this group.. Normally I'd be trying to trade right now, but instead I'm just relaxed, following along with JC and watching the market for volatility that won't affect me much”
“@JC thanks. Finally.. you have changed my life. Honestly, I don't know how to thank you! If you are ever in Austin and have time to kill because your wife is shopping lol. I would like to buy you a beer. Thats from my bucket list.”
“@JC: just wanted to acknowledge how you take the time to teach new people fundamentals in the live trade, tailor trades for 1k accounts, etc. Many people who are at your level are arrogant and impatient. I really appreciate what a nice guy you are. I hope we can meet in person after the masses are vaccinated.”
“@JC, thanks. Great session learned a lot just today. Love the simple rules combined with just those simple indicators. No fuss. No FOMO. Your detailed posting of trades also much appreciated. Thanks for teaching. Looking forward to next live trading session. Very much worth staying up till 4am here in Hong Kong”
“I have a full-time job and can’t spend a lot of time looking at charts and finding trades. The Small Account Mastery is fantastic! With the alert service, I have doubled my account more than once. Plus, I have learned more about the markets from John than I have with anything else. Now I’m learning how to quickly and efficiently find the trades myself. But I’ll keep the Small Account Mastery. It keeps me grounded.”
“You are awesome JC. I watched this same class last week with you. But, it was even better this time around. The thing is, I already signed up for Saturday, as well for Small Account Mastery Membership. I love this.”
“I have followed John's webinars and videos for a couple of years. It wasn't until recently that I joined his Mastery Course, and I am glad that I did. Before I joined the course, I would try to pick the bottom of a stock or blindly buy a pullback on a trending stock. My results were never consistent and I didn't have a plan/checklist to know where I was going wrong. After joining JC in the Mastery Room, I made back my entire investment in ONE day and now understand WHEN and WHY I am in a trade”

John discovered ways to make this “Small Account Secrets 2021” strategy even more adaptive to fast-changing market conditions. Why is this class so important?
