Me and my team work very hard daily with our students. I promise that if you dedicate yourself to my training program I will match your effort 100%. When I got started trading I had no help or support, which is why it took me three years to be a successful trader. I have created the Fous4Trading System so you won’t have to endure 3 years of trial and error before reaching success that I did. It is my goal for you to reach success in a much shorter time and it’s my promise to help my best to get you there.
Growing up I was fascinated by the stock market and my dream was to become a stock broker. I attended Oregon State University with a Finance concentration, but it wasn’t until my sophomore year in 2005 that I got involved in the stock market. My aunt received a “hot tip” on a biotech company called Cytomedix ($CMXI) that was supposed to be the next big thing at $4 a share. My entire family, including myself, girlfriend, everyone put everything they had in this stock. $CMXI rose to $6 about a month later. Everyone was pumped up thinking it was going to $20+. I was bored, I wanted to learn how to trade stocks, not invest in some low-priced speculative stock. So I sold the stock, made good profits, and didn’t tell anyone! I woke up a few weeks later to see $CMXI was trading at $0.50 cents and $½ million in family money was wiped out in one day. Welcome to the stock market, I was hooked!
As the years passed I began to find my niche and slowly began to master the Fous4 Strategy as it is known today. My only problem was in the beginning actually following my own strategy! Sounds crazy but it was true. I would make hundreds to thousands a day and then blow it all by making highly risky trades trying to hit that home-run. I blew up my account twice. Lost my initial $10,000 and then saved up another $5,000, lost all that… saved up another $5,000 again…and finally began to actually stick to my strategy.

I knew I could be successful as long as I stuck to my trading plan with discipline. I knew there was light at the end of the tunnel and I refused to give up! My hard work and belief in my strategy paid off! After almost 3 years I finally became consistent and gain the confidence I needed to stay profitable!
So I had a choice to make, as many traders eventually face…either focus on graduating college and work for a financial firm or avoid the typical 9-5 life and trade stocks and spread my passion and knowledge to others with my business. So I took that leap of faith, believed in myself, and announced to my following that I’m going to start charging for my stock trading website services. Nervous as hell, the very first month of running a paid service it was a HUGE success. Hundreds of people who believed in what I had to offer agreed to pay for my real-time stock alerts after years of using my service for free. I was only 23 years-old but after seeing how many people from my following signed up I knew I had a unique talent and I enjoyed teaching more than anything else!
But I’ve been there and done that with all the material goods. In early 2017, I sold all of my possessions to pursue the one thing that always mad me happy…trading and traveling the world! I’ve learned that quality of life and creating memories is more important that possessing material goods. So, I’ve went full-time global nomad! Traveling and trading all over the world.

Next I will introduce two student success stories that were so good and positive for the Fous4Trading Community that I hired them! With consistently growing interest in learning to trade I knew I needed more people to help new traders reach success.
Michael’s interest in the stock market began with his Grandfather who loved the stock market and invested well throughout his life. This motivated Michael (aka Big_Mike) to pursue a degree in Finance and Economics. However, what Mike really wanted to learn was how to trade stocks successfully. After graduation, Michael followed the generic path of getting involved in the stock market by getting his Series 7, 63, and 87 licensee’s and Michael lived the typical corporate 9-5 of an Analyst on Wall Street for 5 years. Wanting more freedom and a bigger paycheck he came across the FOUS4 Training Program and did what most only dream of, he quit his job to become a full-time Day Trader!
I asked him, his thoughts on the transition to from the 9-5 stress to working from home as a full-time day trader, “It was certainly a leap of faith,” he said. “I knew I had a lot to learn, but I leaned on my teachings and guidance from the Fous4 Community. In hindsight, I should have practiced more first but it all worked out in the end.”
Big_Mike went on a 6 months hot streak and banked $60,000! Michael soon went on to use his profits to buy a Maserati similar to mine! Michael is now Head Instructor at Fous4Trading and co-hosts our daily trading broadcast Fous4Live.

Robert Millar had a career as an Environmental Scientist and started investing in Blue Chip stocks in 2007. One year later the 2008 financial crisis hit and his entire portfolio was exposed the market overnight and he lost 50% of his account within a few weeks. This was a wake-up call for him to become a more educated and active trader to avoid taking such catastrophic loses.
During the financial crisis Robert was working full-time, completing Graduate school, and learning to become an active trader. Talk about a busy schedule! Yet he still found time to learn and Day Trade successfully. He tried several other programs before finally becoming consistently profitable with the Fous4Trading System. I asked him, what was his motivation to learn to trade which such a busy schedule? “I became hooked after my first successful trade. At first I was lucky and that soon ended. I wanted to absorb everything I could to be consistent. Money can be a motivating factor, especially when I could make $300-600 before even getting to work,” he said.
As Robert neared completion of his Graduate program he started to look for a new job to advance his career. To his surprise, after several job interviews the extra degree barely increased his salary. “I was pissed,” he said. “I spent 8 years of my life always working under other people and doubled-down on a Masters degree which did nothing for my career. Thank God, I learned how to day-trade during that time. I had options,” he said.
With one semester left, Robert completed his Masters Program and decided to focus 100% on trading after 2 years of making good supplemental income. He took the leap and quit his job. I asked him at first how was the adjustment, “my first obstacle was over-trading as I now had so much free time. When I was working and in school I was so busy I had no choice but to trade only 1-2 hours, hit my daily profit target, and get back to work. Now it took serious discipline to stop trading and walk away from the computer station.” Robert eventually gained the discipline to walk away and became a featured trader for years in the Fous4 Community. So much so, I brought him on-board to help me with all the new interested traders looking to change their lives like he did.

I asked him what advice would he give to new traders trying to transition to becoming a full-time professional and he said, “always be a student of the game and learn from yourself and others. Before even thinking about going full-time focus on making nice small gains consistently and supplementing your income. With trading it’s you against them, so you better be prepared and disciplined to win consistently.”
I certainly hope our stories help YOU and your journey to becoming a full-time Day Trader. There are many other examples and I hope that soon YOU too can be one of them!
