Peter Brandt is living evidence that a trader can overcome the enormous odds stacked against them to obtain consistent profitability.
Here's what we mean:
A recent independent accounting audit scrutinized Peter Brandt's annual IRS tax statements reporting his profits for 18 years of trading. The auditing firm also matched the tax reports to Peter's brokerage statements.
The audit verified this stunning fact: During those 18 years, Peter's compounded average annual return has been +41.6%.
Put another way: The auditors calculated that, based on Peter's actual performance, each $1,000 of initial capital returned $334,817 during those 18 years.
(By the way, the +41.6% figure was calculated using the most conservative possible accounting process. Industry-accepted standards would allow him to report substantially higher performance results. But that’s how Peter wants it: understated. As you might guess, this kind of habitual conservatism is part of what makes him a successful trader.)
The harder you look at Peter Brandt's performance, the more remarkable it becomes.
Here's another stunner for you: By his own estimate, only about 35% of his market calls are right. Yes, you read that correctly. For 18 years, Peter has beaten the S&P by a factor of 4 when only about a third of his trades go as he expects.
If you've read this far, you're likely wondering: "Why would a guy who's made 41% for 18 years share his tools for success? Why not just sit on the pile of cash and stay ahead of the competition?"
