written by reader What Might Matt Insley’s “42-Day Retirement” teaser be about?

By glomerulus, July 27, 2019

I keep getting this stuff in my email. Every now and then, I actually read 10-20% of one of them; the full pitch is too long and full of the same old hyperbole and half-truths all teasers contain. Ignore the graphs, search for the main theme, then scroll down to the bottom to see how much.

There’s no time to waste because one of these windows is about to open on August 1st…!!! Who knows what this window is all about. They apparently open from time to time when conditions are right or when the room fills with too much of the flatulence of these teasers. His ”three step system” appears to be the same old traffic light analogy: three flashing green lights means go, go, GO! And, just like that, you can finance your whole retirement in one trade. All the graphs of stocks that shot up increased by over 1000%, but, if we bring it down to earth, a more realistic uptick might be 200-300%. If I had $2 million more than I have now, I can retire well. So, I’d have to risk between $667,000 and $1 million to get it. On one trade? Ain’t gonna happen.

”It’s all thanks to an obscure SEC regulation… Section 13(a)(2) of this regulation forces companies to release confidential accounting data to the public during certain times of the year. Hmm, sounds like Forms 10-K, 8-K, etc, not to mention quarterly earnings reports. If that’s all there is to this system, I already know how to trade options around earnings releases that cause a stock to move more than its IV and expected move. And the past year has seen a lot of stocks drop after a favorable earnings report, while other rise after a negative surprise.

I wonder what the mighty Thinkolator thinks of this one. I think that the only person who is going to be a lot richer in 42 days is Matt Insley, on the backs of us folks who might actually cough up $995 for a year’s worth of his newsletter, 88% of which would be unnecessary if this 42-day thing actually worked.
