We learned we could just rip people off and not make any money at all. As is the case for most "investment gurus" online. You have to discover it yourself. It's true for everyday successful traders, as well. I'd be curious to see if her short options actually went In The Money during the "market crash" in August ' Obviously when that happened, she had to stay mechanical and roll down and out her Puts, and on paper, that would be taking a loss.
Her whole strategy is based on this. But based on the fact that the market rebounded so quickly, she would have never been at risk of losing the trade at expiration. I would love to see the data on this. Karen Burton method of trading was not bad, but as always involves risks.
Where she got in trouble was hiding her losses by rolling them of to the next month and by doing that was able to collect her trading fees. What she was running was ponzi scheme. Would love to listen to someone who loss a lot of money. Can you do that because its a bit strange to listen to all these success without failure. Sometimes when things are too good to be true its sometimes is not true.
So please upload something that you know who loss a lot of money. Im very curious what they will say. Not such a Supertrader after all.

I had to have my very vague counter charge. I went on disability for many reasons, and also won my Workers Comp case, which my employer said I didn't deserve in the beginning. Eventually common sense prevailed, but I still never received any money for my charges including the loss of my business. I'm 7 month trader much to learn but I like when price get near bolinger bands gives me better direction and look at 4hr,1hr,5min,1min with 8 t line,with moving averages.
She did generate profits. She "timed" the realization of profits and losses to guarantee that she gets her fees. At 1st i was gonna say I didn't learn anything from this but I actually did.
