Inner Circle Report

Quick-Start Guide to the World’s Most Elite Trading Community

How to use all the tools, market intelligence and real-time trading ideas Monument Traders Alliance has to offer.

A welcome message from our Publisher…

First off, I want to thank you for joining the most revolutionary trading community in the world… the Monument Traders Alliance.

Years ago, our head tacticians, Bryan Bottarelli and Karim Rahemtulla, decided to form an elite group of like-minded traders.

They wanted to create a true community of people who come together to teach each other… encourage each other… and celebrate each other’s wins.

So in May 2019, they launched our flagship product The War Room – our real-time trading chatroom. Our goal was to disrupt the financial research industry and show everyday people the power of smart speculation.

Since that launch, our community has grown at a massive pace.  And in the process, we’ve added more top-notch trading services to our repertoire.

Following the creation of The War Room, we’ve launched Trade of the Day Plus (which gives our best weekly stock picks) and ProfitSight (our proprietary software that tracks “W” and “M”). Then we brought on self-made trading millionaire and teacher, Nate Bear, as our Lead Technical Tactician. He runs our livestreaming trading rooms, Profit Surge Trader and Daily Profits Live.

Now, all of that has come together with the recent launch of Monument Traders Alliance’s highest level of membership… our Inner Circle.

We created the Inner Circle due to our members’ high demand for access to all our services – all bundled together – at the best rate possible.

And along with the debut of the Inner Circle, we launched Post-Market Profits as a benefit reserved for just our Inner Circle Members. This research service is a cutting-edge approach to after-hours trading. And it is now possible only because of a new trading rule that allows you trade Dark Tickers on the major indices. The goal of Post-Market Profits is to exploit this new trading window for peak overnight gains following big market sell-offs.

And I can promise you that Monument Traders Alliance is planning to debut more cutting-edge research services in the near-future. And with every new addition we bring into the Monument Traders Alliance, our goal remains the same…

Our mission is to change the way you approach speculation by giving you the tools, market intelligence and real-time, actionable advice to potentially send your daily profit-making potential into the stratosphere.

Smart speculation can bring exhilaration that makes life worth living, and you’ll be in position to feel it on a daily basis – all by being part of Monument Traders Alliance.

Below, my team has put together a guide that will help you understand all our group has to offer. It covers the goal of each service, the best time to access them and how they all complement each other on our path to financial freedom and trading success.

After reviewing this guide, if you have any further questions, please reach out to our Moderation Team in The War Room or Daily Profits Live anytime from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. eastern time. They will be happy to help you.

Yours in smart speculation,

Ryan Fitzwater, Publisher

Meet the Experts

Bryan Bottarelli
Head Trading Tactician

Whether it was selling the Star Wars figures he collected as a little boy for 50 times their value or using $125 of grass-cutting money to buy a Michael Jordan rookie card that he later sold for $1,500, it was clear Bryan Bottarelli was a born trader – who possessed the unique ability to identify opportunities and leverage those investments.

After graduating with a business degree from the highly rated Indiana University Kelley School of Business, Bryan got his first job out of college trading stock options on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE). There he was mentored by one of the country’s top floor traders in the heart of the technology boom from 1999 to 2000 while trading in the crowded and lively Apple Computer pit. As he executed his trades in real time, Bryan learned to identify and implement some of his most powerful trading secrets… secrets that rarely make their way outside the CBOE to individual traders.

Recognizing the true value of these methods, Bryan tapped into his entrepreneurial spirit to take a risk. He walked off the CBOE floor and launched his own independent trading research service called Bottarelli Research. From February 2006 to December 2018, Bryan gave his precise trading instructions to a small, elite group– most of whom joined him on day one and have been followers ever since.

As a so-called “play tactician,” Bryan uses his hands-on knowledge of floor trading to shape opportunities and chart formations into elegant, powerful and profitable recommendations. And by using the same hedging techniques that professional floor traders use, Bryan is able to deliver his readers remarkable gain opportunities while strictly limiting their total risk.

Along the way, Bryan has developed a cumulative track record that could impress even the most successful hedge fund manager.

This success pushed Bryan to work with renowned software developers to create our proprietary ProfitSight software to help members identify the same types of patterns he plays in The War Room for big gains.

He now spends his days moderating and leading one of the most elite trading research forums ever created, The War Room. You’ll also see Bryan every other Wednesday afternoon when he issues a new video trade recommendation in Trade of the Day Plus.

Karim Rahemtulla
Head Fundamental Tactician

Karim began his trading career early… very early. While attending boarding school in England, he recognized the value of the homemade snacks his mom sent to him every semester and sold them for a profit to his classmates, who were trying to avoid the horrendous British food.

He then graduated to stocks and options, becoming one Wall Streets youngest CFOs ever and working for a brokerage and trading firm that cleared through Bear Stearns in the late 1980s. There he learned his trading skills from veterans of the business. They had already made their mistakes, and he recognized the value of the strategies they were using late in their careers.

Having been educated in England, Canada and the United States, Karim is fluent in several languages. His undergraduate studies were completed in economics and foreign languages, and his graduate studies resulted in a master’s degree in finance. Karim travels the world regularly, seeking out the best investment opportunities.

As co-founder and chief options strategist for the groundbreaking publication Wall Street Daily, Karim turned to LEAPS and put-selling strategies to help members capture gains. After that, he honed his strategies for readers of Automatic Trading Millionaire, where he didn’t record a single realized loss on 37 recommendations over an 18-month period.

While even he admits that track record is not the norm, it showcases the effectiveness of a sound trading strategy.

His focus is on “smart” trading. Using volatility and proprietary probability modeling as his guideposts, he makes investments where risk and reward are defined ahead of time.

Karim is all about lowering risk while enhancing returns using strategies such as LEAPS trading, spread trading, put selling and, of course, following insider cluster buying… and he puts all these strategies to work within The War Room. Like his co-editor Bryan, Karim makes a new video trade recommendation every other week in Trade of the Day Plus.

He also has more than 30 years of experience in options trading and international markets and he is the author of the best-selling book Where in the World Should I Invest?

Nate Bear
Lead Technical Tactician

Nate graduated from Georgia Tech in 2005 with a bachelor’s in building construction. From there, he went straight into the 9-to-5 grind, the everyday suit-and-tie life. Two years later, he threw off the corporate shackles and started his own small business.

Managing his business, United States Permit, from home gave him room to dabble in trading. He started slowly in 2008, trading with just a $1,000 account.

Like most beginning traders, Nate struggled at first. He made costly mistakes… blowing up that first $1,000 account and even another $10,000 account. But despite these initial setbacks, he was intent on learning from his mistakes – he was too hooked on trading to quit.

Then, in 2015, his son was born, and Nate realized the core reason he wanted to be a successful trader. For Nate, it wasn’t about money. He wanted to quit the 60-hour grind of running a small business. From that point on, he was committed to figuring out how to make serious money from trading so he could spend more time with his family.

The biggest pivot for Nate was to think of trading like a business. He needed a system that would deliver consistent wins… not just a couple of wins here and there. The next step in his trading journey was finding a trading community, connecting with successful traders and learning from their advice. Most importantly, by working with these other veteran traders… he discovered a trading system that worked.

From there, things took off. Nate started making more money from trading than from his building business. He started trading full time in 2016, and within a couple of years, his trading portfolio had surpassed $1 million. It was clear he had found the key to pro trading success.

In the meantime, Nate’s family continued to grow. At one point, they had six people and three dogs living in a 1,200-square-foot home.

But as his work-from-home trading career took off, it allowed his family to relocate to an area with amazing schools and move into a much bigger house – more than triple the size of their previous one.

Nate vividly remembers the first time he sat down at the dinner table in his new home…

“It was like a huge glass of ice water after a long walk in the desert.”

Since then, trading has been Nate’s full-time gig, and he loves it. He has also started livestreaming his own trades to teach others his pro techniques and help them change their financial fates.

When Monument Traders Alliance approached Nate with the opportunity to teach and guide new traders in our growing network, he jumped at the chance. It reminded him of all the advice his mentors had given him years earlier, and he wanted to pay it forward.

That’s why Nate is excited to help people through his trading communities, Profit Surge Trader and Daily Profits Live. Every day the markets are open, he shares the insights he’s learned over his trading career and helps others avoid the costly mistakes he made when he was starting out. He’s constantly sharing winning strategies, real-time setups and actionable advice, as well as educating brand-new traders on how they can make trading a business for themselves.

His goal is to make his trading community the same “glass of water in the desert” that changed his life.

Our Suite of Services

We are often asked, “What is the expected hold time for each of your trades?”

It can depend on many factors, like the underlying stock’s price action, the overall market movement of the day, the expiration date of the option we opened, and the trading strategy we deployed.

In some cases, we open a trade looking to close it out over the next week… but end up ringing the register for a win just minutes or hours later.

Other times, we might hold on to a trade for a couple of months or more before we exit. A lot of factors go into our tacticians’ decisions on when to close a trade.

However, we do have a general idea of when we hope to exit trades in each service and strategy. Below, we have created a “smart speculator’s Venn diagram” breaking down which category each service’s trades will generally fit into.

  • Fast trades = same day or overnight
  • Medium-term trades = one to four weeks
  • Long-term plays = one month or longer

As you can see, some services fit into multiple trading categories…

Monument Traders Alliance currently manages six incredible financial services – each with its own strategies, fulfillment, and trades.

The War Room is our flagship service. It offers real-time, stock and options recommendations from our head gurus and a live chat thousands of other members every day the market is open.

Daily Profits Live is our live-streaming chat room, where you can look over the shoulder of our Lead Technical Tactician Nate Bear and his expert moderators to learn how to trade like a pro with thousands of other members.

Profit Surge Trader, our weekly streaming chat room, is a concise trading session with Nate Bear each Monday at noon ET. Join us and make some trades every Monday around lunchtime.

ProfitSight is our algorithm-based service that allows you to put the power of artificial intelligence in the palm of your hand. As soon as the market opens, ProfitSight begins scouring the market for “W” and “M” patterns in the stocks on your watchlist and it will send you an alert when it’s time to prep for a trade.

Trade of the Day Plus is a weekly stock-picking system that emails recommendations to you every Wednesday in the form of concise, clear, and entertaining video.

Post-Market Profits is a unique service that’s available only to our Inner Circle Members. Thanks to new after-hours trading rules, you can use “Dark Tickers” to capitalize on sizable one-day market drops for overnight wins with 88% accuracy.  Any time we see a one-day drop of 1% or more, you’ll get an alert from Bryan with the full details on the exact Dark Ticker trade to make. Note: This is a new exclusive trading window most traders are unaware of. Alerts will come out after the markets are closed and the lights are off.

Developing the Winning Mindset

Bryan Bottarelli, Head Trade Tactician, Monument Traders Alliance

When we set out to create this trading community, there were a lot of factors to keep in mind and we wanted to make sure to foster the development of a winning mindset.

Part of that is celebrating and embracing fantastic winning moments.

Big winners are why we wake up each day to trade. They’re what fuels our speculative engines.

And that’s why Monument Traders Alliance was created in the first place.

So, as you get up to speed in our trading community, do your best to embrace, support and help your fellow members.

We’re all on the same team. We all have the same logo on our jerseys. And we’re all here for the same common goal: to make winning trades.

Above all, please keep this in mind each day, with each post and comment you make.

If we all do this together, Monument Traders Alliance will continue to provide the greatest trading community experience in the world!

Here are three good examples of the virtues that set the world’s most successful speculators and traders apart from everyone else:
