Kevin Jones Day Trading – From First Time Failure to Financial Freedom

Tyler Perry wasn’t always a day trader, and neither was his father. Kevin Jones Sr. who, in 1998, owned a fish tank company, held one thing to his credit other than fishing supplies – he’s “a very smart man”, according to his son who says his father was “interested in the market” and that’s how Kevin Jones day trading started.

Jones Sr. didn’t start slow and easy, however, like his son teaches new traders to do now. 

“He put $10,000 into the market, and traded the wrong currency pair,” says Perry. His father lost $6,000 and “it really hit him hard.”

But Kevin Jones Sr. didn’t give up on day trading.

He went home, “figured out a math algorithm to read market information” and spent two years on it before it was ready. Then his father Beta tested it on his children.

“I was 16-years-old and learning about trading futures. It was very, very interesting and it progressed from there,” Perry says.

Even though Kevin Jones had only fish tanks and smarts to his credit before stepping into the day trading arena, he soon realized how well his algorithm worked. Soon after the fish tank company closed, Perry and his father were full-time traders.

Like others who today want more control of their finances, Perry and his father wanted to be in control of their futures.

For Perry, the change has meant everything in day trading.

“It’s allowed me to do everything I’ve wanted to do. I got to run heavy equipment, and be a fireman for 6 years. I can drive locomotives. And I just trade.”

Day trading for Perry has not only created more financial security in his life, but it has also allowed him to step forward and help others to live their dream. Those who are tired of a “broken system” and, despite previous financial choices, are rethinking their life and taking a look at day trading as the best option for their financial stability. Options that are as unique as they are.  

“We teach people that not only does the market have an opened and a closed position, but there are many buys and sells throughout the day that [they] can take advantage of,” says Perry. “Your day trading plan can be customized to your current work so that you don’t have to stop work to learn to trade. You can do both at the same time until you are comfortable making the switch to full-time trading. Or you can continue to do both.”

“You can trust someone else to do it or we can teach you how to do it. [We] make sure that your plan works for you.”

Why Kevin Jones Day Trading Came to Utah

Background

I came to Utah for many reasons, though my first thoughts about day trading were anything but good. They were spurred on by the father of a soon-to-be business partner, Kevin Jones.

It was 2008, and the markets were not good either. No one wanted to be in the markets the way they were that year. But Jones’ dad, Kevin Jones Sr., was pretty persuasive. He spoke about the profits that were coming in. He even showed me the statements of the money he’d made, but I still wasn’t interested.

I was trying to run a cell phone business, and so I ignored him for a while.

But frankly, my friend’s dad kept showing up. Kevin Jones had already jumped on the day trading boat, and I figured, why not? “Okay, show me what you got?” I finally offered.

The shifting began.

I soon realized I could make a profit in an up market as well as in a down market.

My friend and I were sailing along, and while we enjoyed creating tools around coaching and trading my family wasn’t on board.

“Are you doing okay?” they’d ask. They were worried. Was our success somehow tied to the real estate market crash of 2008?

Making it to Utah

When Kevin Jones and I finally made it to Utah, we were ready to take on the day trading catamaran. Unfortunately, California folks were still sailing along, and the supply of really good talent, and really great partners; people that had the same mindset and goals as we did to grow and to help other people succeed was frankly limited per capita. We knew Utah to be a business-friendly state. And we knew we could find the talent and partners in Utah that we needed to grow our business.

We knew that the people in Utah were more entrepreneurial, there were more like-minded folks looking for ways to earn money on their own, and there were more people who wanted to be in charge of their financial future. Not that Utah was the only state where we felt this was prevalent, but Utah was definitely on top of the list of places to move as compared to where I was in California.

And of course, we both liked the great outdoors, so we figured we were getting more than just a great business opportunity when it came to all of the pluses already mentioned. 

We were right. This is a great state to work in and we plan to keep it that way.
