TRI's 2 Rules To Profitable Investing

Rule 1

The Trade Setup

A 3-step process that gives you a calculated trading advantage to consistently win.

Rule 2

5% Risk

The maximum risk you can take on any one trade to stay in the game long-term.

There Are Four Types Of Traders Who Earn Money In The Market

The "Little Old Lady" is just one of four trader types taught In the TRI School. The secret to becoming a great trader and building a consistently profitable trading business is to build a plan that works for your trader type.

Little Old Lady

👵

I'm a long-term participant in the market and never want to sell at a loss.

Joe 6-Pack

👨

I can handle some more risk and don't mind getting stopped out at a loss.

Margin Trader

👨‍💻

I put up collateral to trade with high risk, high reward and try not to get margin called.

Derivative Degen

🤹‍♂️

I run on half adrenaline, half caffeine in a derivative world with tiny error margins.

While you may resonate with “Joe 6-pack”, “Margin Trader” or “Derivative Degen”, many TRI’ers enjoy the "Little Old Lady" strategy, so we’ll start there.

What is the "Little Old Lady" trading strategy?

The "Little Old Lady" is a risk-management approach to trading that follows the second rule of TRI.

Small position sizes (nanny nibbles) where you risk down to zero and sell half the position at double the price to get your money back and earn yourself a risk-free position. 

It works so well, you’ll often see successful students raving about how they “Sold Half on a Double“, “SHOD”, or 'Banging out doubles".

Going Beyond The "Little Old Lady" With Trading Setups

Setups are the key to a profitable trading business especially for more active trader types. Think of a trading setup as a 3-step game plan for making money in the market.

  • Identifying location, i.e. price of your buy or sell.
  • Confirming market direction through multiple indicators
  • Entering your trade in the market and managing risk.

Two Signature Trade Setups You Learn In The TRI School

These setups, strategies and trading concepts are taught to you in the TRI school with a hands-on interactive approach to ensure you apply them correctly.

  • The El-Tangonater:- A powerful 5-step momentum based setup with 66%+ win rate using multiple momentum indicators.
  • The BoT: An advanced 8-step continuation trade setup using price structure rules Brian has used for 35 years.

Rational Investing is the intersection of technical and fundamental analysis. TRI looks closely at the fundamentals (the story or financial data) behind a trade to make sure it agrees with the technicals (charts).

We agree with the proverb: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” At TRI, we want you to be able to expand on your own but the only way you will be able to that is if you have a solid understanding of the fundamentals. There is also major risk of losing money in the markets and we are here to set you up for success.

Yes! You get lifetime access to TRI's dedicated education platform.

You have 30 days from the start of the program. You can purchase this program knowing it will most likely be life-changing for you.
