Top 5 Favorite Traders

First on my list is….

Number 1. Timothy Sykes

Social Media: @timothysykes


Why Is Tim One of My Favorite Traders

This is the man who started it all! Okay, maybe not ALL of trading, but started me on my trading journey. As I came across his famous ads on the internet, I was immediately hooked! I quit the Forex gig and fell in love with Penny Stocks! The reason I choose Tim as my number one trader is due to the fact he is my teacher (I am officially a Trading Challenge Student!) and he is the man who taught SO many others; including the traders I will list below.


Tim’s dedication to charity inspires my to reach my childhood goals of helping others and he has given me the chance to prove to myself that I can accomplish anything with enough hard work. This should inspire you to reach your dreams too! I love what his charity, Karmagawa, does for the world which deserves a blog post to itself! The harder you work, the luckier you get!

How He Can Help You

So how did this man create so many millionaires, 6-figure, and 5-figure students? He has over 20 years of trading experience (all verified on his website, and he has been teaching for over TEN YEARS! From the second I listened to his ad on #YouTube, as many of you probably have, his transparency and honesty had me hooked. He has over 1,000 videos published, for FREE, on YouTube for those who want to study but may not have the funds to begin right away. This gives you a chance to study and save until you can advance your education like I have done!

Tim is an inspiration to me and Many Many Many other traders!

(Mind You, The Rest of My Favorite Trader are in No Particular Order of Favoritism as They ALL Have Major Importance)

Number 2. Mark Croock

Social Media: @thehonestcroock

Mark Croock

Why Mark is One of My Favorite Traders

Mark Croock is one of the mentors inside of the Millionaire Trading Challenge. He is such a humble trader and has spent years helping students all while achieving his own successes. Mark has recently crossed the $2 million milestone and now teaches people how they can profit by trading options.


His story is so relatable that I find him inspiring. Mark started in an office job like many of us have experienced. For me, I had my future laid in front of me by the age of 18 behind a desk and seeing that someone in their fifties was my manager who barely made more than I did while she had over 20+ years of experience but her reward was more work.. NO! I couldn’t do it. But hearing and reading about Mark going from a desk job to now multimillionaire trader was incredible!

How He Can Help You

Mark Croock was able to move to his home in Florida, meet the love of his life and now has a beautiful family, all while moving up as a trader. His story is so relatable! He is a quiet and humble fella that I think everyone should follow on social media and learn from. Here is one of the blog posts on that you can read that Mark wrote. You have the most access to him by joining the Millionaire Trading Challenge, which I hope to see you there!

Number 3. Tim Grittani

Social Media @kroyrunner89

Grittani’s School

Why is Grittani One of My Favorite Traders

Another very important trader I would like to highlight is Tim Grittani. He is known as Tim’s most successful student who turned $1500 into now over $11 Million in verified trading profits on! Above is a photo where Tim Sykes had a school opened in Grittani’s name. How wonderful that they work so hard to educate children around the world! I think it is amazing how Grittani brings his wife along and includes her in his success! They now have a beautiful baby who accompanies Grittani with his trades. How adorable!

How He Can Help You

Grittani is the creator of Trading Tickers; a DVD that lets you explore his tactics to trading. This DVD is beyond helpful and a MUST-WATCH for every trader out there regardless of your experience. Tim Grittani also has many webinars within the Trading Challenge! He is such a kind and humble trader who has given traders some important rules to trading found Here on Tim Grittani’s Blog called Trade the Ticker!


His story inspires me as he was working a part-time job at State Farm which allowed him to save up enough money to fund his trading accounts (with the help of his parents) all while His parents allowed him to live with them given there were a few trading requirements that Tim Grittani had to meet.

Grittani is also known for not profiting the first nine-months of his trading journey! This has proven to be such a relief to new traders. The most successful day trader took nine-months of small wins and losses and no trades or break even before he started to become consistent! Grittani is also known for his spreadsheets! Most traders are confused on how to set them up to track their trades which is why some of Tim Sykes Challenge Students designed Trader Sync! This online trading journal takes all the guesswork away and leaves you with such a wonderful and convenient way to track your trades! I use the Elite version and I love it!

Number 4. Michael Goode

Social Media: @goodetrades

Michael Goode

Why Goode is One of My Favorite Traders

Michael Goode is known to be Tim Sykes “First Hater” turned into Timothy Sykes First Millionaire Student! He wrote a blog post on his website, Goode Trades, saying that Tim was full of Bullship (Bullship because Tim’s original company was BullShip Press). The reason I choose Michael Goode is because he is a very up front and honest person. He is very helpful and kind without covering you in frosting and sprinkles. Michael Goode gave Tim a chance and rewrote a new post that explained how Tim is the Real Deal!


This trader is great inspiration for all of the critics out there! If anyone were to dig their claws deep into Timothy Sykes and rip him apart, it would be this man. But true to his research and credibility, Goode gave Tim the honest try that this teacher deserved. Within a reasonable amount of time and effort, Goode was on his way to millionaire status! If that isn’t inspirational, then I don’t know what is. But of course, always perform your own due diligence before investing your hard-earned money! Goode has since updated that blog post expressing Tim’s legitimacy.

How Goode Can Help You

Michael Goode is one of the chat moderators within the TimAlerts chatroom and in the Challenge Chatroom! He is very helpful to students when asked questions. How To Read SEC Filings is a very detailed DVD that goes in-depth about picking a part those detailed SEC filings that are filed by companies that you always see being released. I HIGHLY recommend this DVD as it is SO informative and detailed! This DVD was one of the first that I bought when beginning my journey. I LOVE it!

Roland Wolf

Why Roland Wolf is One of My Favorite Traders

Roland Wolf is one of Tim’s fastest account-growing student! He has turned $4k of his hard-earned money into nearly one million within an extremely short amount of time. He is very humble and very happy to help others.


This man is a father, a husband, a mentor to his own students, and an all around diverse guy. He began trading due to a soccer injury that led him to seek out other opportunities. With an incredible wife by his side, Roland was able to work while putting in 17 hours of studying every day to reach his success! By no means is being a working family man an easy task. That is why having his partner by his side was one of the most inspiring things about Roland’s story in my humble opinion. These two make the perfect team!
