FROM THE DESK OF: Mark Shawzin
Boca Raton, Florida
Dear Friend,

Since January 2021, I’ve collected roughly $2 million in pure profit just by following these rules every day at the stock market open.
Here’s how it works:
Every morning after I get my coffee, I sit down at my desk, pull up a chart, and look at 4 things:
  • Earnings Report - check
  • Governing Pattern - check
  • Insurance Bar - check
  • Risk Profile - check
If everything checks out, I enter my trades.

Then, I wait for the market to open at 9:30 AM EST.

Within the first hour, I've usually made most of my profits.

There are only a handful of rules you need to remember.

In a moment, I’ll give you my checklist so you don’t forget them.

Before I tell you what they are, it’s important you understand 

What the strategy is & how it works

It’s actually pretty funny.

This whole thing started after my accident in January 2021.

The doctor strapped a boot around my foot...

... and told me I wouldn’t be able to play tennis for EIGHT MONTHS.

I was totally bummed out.

I had nothing else to do but sit in front of a computer screen all day.

It was too much effort to even move around the house, so I stayed locked inside my little office.

One morning before the markets opened... a time when I would usually be outside enjoying myself...
I noticed something...
Something very rare.

It was a random stock...

... and it had a very peculiar setup.

I instantly recognized it.

In 2018 I made almost $1 million from a setup like this, in Facebook.

That same year I made about $400,000 from the same setup in Tesla.

In 2019, there was just ONE setup like this.

They are known as “Crisis Setups”

Whenever a one-of-a-kind event, or a crisis, hits a company I see this pattern play out.

As you can imagine, the start of the pandemic yielded lots of these opportunities.

Those times were gone and I had to go back to finding these lucrative plays one or two times a year.

Yet, here it was... another crisis setup.

I thought something must be happening to this company.

I don’t care what... I just know I’m about to make a killing on this trade.

This was my one trade of the year where I could make enough money to buy a house in cash.

And sure enough... I did.

The company’s name was Lyft.
Since then…

These “crisis setups”
 kept popping up EVERYWHERE

A week later I saw it again.

No way.

How is this possible?

Another “crisis setup” this close to the previous one?

And this time... it wasn’t some random stock.

It was the actual stock market!

So I shorted the QQQ (another name for the NASDAQ).

Here is a play-by-play of what happened:
And it was just the beginning.

There seemed to be crisis setups all over the place.

I saw them in QuantumScape, Zoom, Beyond Meat, Tesla, Baidu, SunRun... just to name a few.

Back in May, there was one in particular that caught my attention...

MAY 27, 2021

8:45am – The Premarket

I couldn’t sleep.

I kept thinking about this one stock all night.

I don’t usually get this bothered by a position... but this time, I couldn’t help myself.

BYND, the ticker symbol for Beyond Meat, was flashing a bright red neon sign in my face and it was screaming “CRISIS SETUP!”

When I finally got out of bed, I knew I was about to make hundreds of thousands of dollars in a matter of minutes.

I had to clear my head.

Usually, I would go for a walk or a swim.

Unfortunately, after my accident, none of that was possible with the boot strapped around my leg.

So I sat down and went through the setup in my head again.
  • Earnings Report - check
  • Governing Pattern - check
  • Insurance Bar - check
  • Risk Profile - check
I was good to go.

At 8:45 AM I grabbed my coffee and hobbled to my office on m peg-leg.

I bought 5,049 shares of BYND for $621,258.16.

I also bought 277 call options for $35,328.01.

And I sat there...

... looking at my screen... and
Feeling bored out of my mind
I wanted to play tennis SO bad.

I wanted to walk normally, go jogging, feel the sea breeze on my balding head.

I didn’t care that I just dumped $650k of my own money on a plant-based meat company.

So I called my buddy Peter on Skype and told him what I just did.

I wanted to talk to someone and share.

I showed him my screen, chatted about the stupid calls the analysts were making...

... and then the market opened.

This is what happened in the first couple of hours.
Price shot up by almost $20.

As usual, the analysts got the call embarrassingly wrong.

I laughed and took a couple of hundred grand in profits, while letting the rest of the trade run.

However, Peter didn’t laugh.

He looked at me with a blank face and said,

“Mark... you do this every day?!”

It turns out he was glued to his screen...

Looking at the market move a few ticks, and my account balance spiralling up and down by $5,000, $25,000 and even $50,000 in a matter of minutes.

“Yes,” I replied “I trade like this every day, but the outcome isn’t always this...

Peter cut me off. He said

“I have never experienced high stakes trading where someone puts $100,000, $500,000, or a million dollars of their own cash on a single trade... LIVE in front of my eyes... and pull in enough profits to buy a couple of Ferraris...

“This is insane. Can I join you again tomorrow?”

By the end of the next day, Peter watched as I closed out everything...

I had positions in 2 broker accounts:
The total was $864,949.80.

I closed out some of my positions and was left with this:
Netting myself a cool $1.2 million in profit...
Admittedly, that’s my biggest trade of 2021 so far. Not all crisis trades are this big.

Usually, my profits range between $75,000 and $250,000.

ALL of my big stock trades this year followed the exact same routine:
1) I whittle down the stocks to a few that are going to move BIG in the next 24-48 hours.

2) I apply my trading methodology to them to find out where the best entry is.

3) I trade in the pre-market AND market open.

4) If the trade is good, I let it run. If it doesn’t move, I close it out.
Let’s walk through the checklist step by step, so you can do it yourself.



You want to see stocks move quickly.

If they don’t move rapidly then I am not interested. I’ll take a small loss and call it a day.

As soon as the market opens, I want to see action in about an hour or less.

So, how do I do this?
  • Find out which companies have earnings announcements.
  • Pick out 20-30 stocks who are announcing the next day.
  • Analyse their charts and find out which direction they are most likely to go based on the price action.
DO NOT trade based on the news or the earnings announcement. 

Stick to the price action strategy. Enter a pending order and walk away. Let the market confirm your entry.

If the chart shows that something is about to happen, and you know there is an announcement... the odds are better that there will be a crisis-setup.

This short two-minute video explains what I do:




Once the market is closed (after 4pm), you will do a standard analysis of the stocks you chose in the previous step.

Most people reading this will understand my overall trading methodology, so here is a very brief recap.
  • Determine the phase of the market: Is it going up, down, sideways, or is it reversing?
  • Identify a scientifically valid pattern. (double top, double bottom, head and shoulders, etc)
  • Spot a scientifically valid insurance bar: Inside day or key reversal, either one is fine.
  • Enter a pending order.
If you are going long, you can enter above the high of the day. 

Place your stop loss below the close of the day.

If you are going short, place your entry below the low of the daily bar. 

Place your stop loss above the close of the day.

Risk no more than 0.5%-1.0% of your entire account on each trade at this stage. 

I wouldn’t trust a “crystal ball” type of prediction the day before. Wall Street big-wigs are consistently embarrassed in the press with their “predictions” 

What people forget is that the market is always right. No supercomputer, reddit forum, or Wall Street hot-shot is above the market.

The next day, at the market open... you’ll discover which one of your trades is going to run and which ones to bail on.

By the way, if you are totally new to my style of trading and don’t know my basic 4-part trading method, please email They will send you a checklist you can follow.



Pay close attention. 

The rules here are very specific. If you don’t follow them to the letter, you could get wiped out quickly.

I recently broke my own rules because I got cocky. I lost $100,000 in just a few hours. 

Luckily, that was a small portion of my account and I made it up quickly.

If you stick to the rules you will be fine.

When the market opens, one of two things is going to happen.

The market either shoots in the anticipated direction, or it goes against you.

Scenario #1:

The market shoots in the anticipated direction

Let’s pretend you placed a trade short.

And then, the market shoots down. You are entered into the trade and things look good.

Wait for 30 minutes. Let the chaos of the opening unfold. You don’t want to get swallowed up in that. Grab a coffee.

If price continues to go down, then just leave it. The market has decided what it wants to do. 

However, a more likely scenario is that it comes back up. It goes back through unchanged. 

Place a second order underneath the low of the day.

If price keeps going against you, you’ve only lost 0.5%-1.0% of your account, and you move on.

However, if price shoots down and triggers your 2nd pending order then the market has reconfirmed your entry.

You have scaled into the trade and positioned yourself to make 25-50% more profit on this trade.

Scenario #2:

The market shoots against you 
(this is where you can make big money)

This is my favorite scenario and the one where I essentially print huge piles of cash.

You start off with your order from the night before (see previous checkpoint).

The market opens and shoots up, going against the anticipated direction.

This is great news. 

Remember, you have not been triggered into the trade yet. You are patiently waiting for the first 30 minutes of chaos to subside.

Once the 30mins are up, you sell short at the market.

If you get stopped out, then great. The stop loss is tight and the risk was low.

If price shoots down, you’ll be in two positions. This allows you to make double or even triple the initial profit.

Throughout the first hour there may even be two or three opportunities to scale into your trade.

If you do it correctly, you can protect your account while massively increasing the leverage.


If your broker allows you to trade in the after-market, you can actually deploy this strategy before the market even opens, giving you a lot more bang for your buck.

Look, there is only so much I can write about this subject. You may even feel a little overwhelmed with all of the info.

And that’s normal. 

Don’t worry.

That’s why

I Would Like to Invite You To


After Peter had traded with me live for a couple weeks... he begged me to open up the doors for our Pattern Trader members to tune in as well.

In June we ended up launching what is now one of our flagship programs: The Boiler Room.

Members paid between $1,000 and $10,000 to sit with me live and watch me trade the stock market open every Monday through Thursday.

Between June 28 and July 15, they watched me rack up $660,916.06 in profits before I finally closed all my positions.

They watched me break down and analyze charts in real time -- so they could see exactly what I saw.

They watched me maneuver in and out of trades.

They saw how I responded when trades didn’t go my way.

They got to see my every thought, every decision, every move I made.

Some saw, for the first time ever, how a professional trader gets the job done.

In short... it was a


And we got it all on video.

Each video comes with a 3 to 10 minute “highlight reel” so you can quickly see what happened during that session.

When you’re ready to go deeper, you can view the full-length session recording, each one typically between 60 and 90 minutes.

On top of that, I am also throwing in a handy PDF guide called
“The Stock Market Open Strategy Rules”
It’s a checklist you can use every time you pull up a chart.

It shows you the 2 different ways to enter trades and when to use each of them.

It shows you how to manage your positions in every possible scenario.

Let’s say you entered a trade, and then the market went against you.

Should you stay in it and hope it turns back around?

Should you get out?

How do you know when to do what?

Wanna know how to scale into a winning trade to milk it for as much juice as humanly possible?

Wanna know the best way to get out of a trade that isn’t working out, so you can minimize your losses?

It’s all in there.

The guide will show you what to do for every possible scenario, so you’re never ever unsure of what to do.

I wanted to leave no stone unturned.


I wanted to make sure there’s absolutely 
NO REASON anyone could possibly fail

There are only four possible reasons why you could fail at this strategy.
  • You don’t know how to spot the trade setup.
  • You don’t know how to enter the trade.
  • You don’t know how to manage the trade.
  • ​You don’t know how to exit the trade.
I show you all of those things in excruciating detail.

You are about to watch over my shoulder and tune in to every thought that ran through my head as I scaled into $660,000+ in profits over a three-week period.

And you are getting the checklist that shows you precisely what to do in any conceivable trading scenario.

I don’t want to sound like I am hyping this up too much...

But the truth is... you CAN do this too.

There really isn’t any reason why you couldn’t.

If you would like to hear from some of the members who attended the sessions live, here is what a few of them have had to say:


Here’s a quick recap of what you get when you sign up today:

First, you get 3 weeks of recordings that were captured live in our Boiler Room sessions.

Members paid between $1,000 and $10,000 to attend live.

In those recordings, you get to watch me pile up $660,000 in profits using the exact method I have just explained to you.

And I show you everything -- every thought, every decision, every pivot and maneuver -- as I do it in real time.

Second, you also get my handy PDF cheat-sheet that breaks down exactly what to do in every possible trading scenario.

Where to enter, when to exit, how to set your stop loss and take profit.

How to manage your trades no matter which way the market moves.

I even show you how to take advantage of the market going against you to make even more money than you otherwise would have.

If you’ve read this far, you’ve probably been looking for the right “path” for quite some time.

When traders come to me, most of them have dabbled with countless trading methods and systems... and for the most part... gotten nowhere.

Just spinning their wheels, digging themselves further in a hole... until the next shiny object comes along and gets their hopes up again.

And the cycle repeats.

So the first of your two choices is to just stay where you are.

Don’t do anything.

Remain on your current trajectory.

Just close this page. Forget everything you read here. And go on about your day.

That will be totally fine by me.

You already know absolutely nothing will change if you don’t take action.

I would like to invite you to take that action and make that commitment to yourself right here, right now, today.
And that leads me to Choice #2:
Get the Stock Market Open Strategy Rules today.

Unlike what most traders do in the markets...

… this investment comes with ZERO risk: If you try it and it doesn’t work, I’ll give you double your money back.

You understand why the method works.

You’ve seen the proof.

You’ve heard from others who have already done it.

You’re getting everything you need to succeed with this strategy.

All that’s left is for you to decide that this is something that you want.

If so, I look forward to having you on board.

You are in for a ride!
