The $10K to $1M Challenge

Follow Joe’s Journey from $10k to $1 Million

Discover how Joe grew a $10K account into $400K!


The $10K to $1M account challenge was born from Joe’s Strike Zone Mastery members – many members were eager to get in on the account growth from the beginning as opposed to when the train had already left the station, so Joe has decided to open a new $10K on the morning of this class. The goal is to show you how to trade futures with a small account in a non-trending market. If you’ve ever had any interest in trading futures, now is an ideal time to start. Why? With the market likely falling this year, you could look to hedge your 401K’s and IRA’s with supplemental income through day trading (and Joe plans to show you how he’s done just that). These are the same principles and concepts he’s used in his Mastery for over 2 years and are scalable for different account sizes.

BONUS: NEW Futures 101 Class
Joe has years of experience coaching new traders. To get you up to speed as fast as possible, Joe recorded a special bonus session that gives you everything you need to know about futures in a flash. Some of the topics covered within this class are margin section, stop loss section, and micro/mini summary charts.
8 Strike Zone Mastery Workshops
These hyper-focused sessions will look to tackle a specific topic of trading interest every week over an 8-week period and will take place every Thursday.

These topics will be as follows: Technicals • HVA’s • Entry Signals - Rebound, Reversal • Entry Signals - Breakout, Firesale, Middle Out • Exit Rules and Golden Keys • Risk Management • Time Frames • Psychology
Live Trading Sessions
Get up to 8 interactive live trading sessions with Joe Rokop. Watch his screen in real-time as he targets day trading setups using an updated risk model and intraday trend analysis that lends itself to current market conditions and patterns. During these sessions, you’ll see Joe demonstrate his strategy step-by-step. As always, any trades Joe takes are real and NOT hypothetical.
Strike Zone Mastery Membership
Continue following along with Joe’s $10K account within his Strike Zone Mastery where you can receive real-time trade alerts, attend weekly live trading sessions focused on Joe’s Strike Zone strategy, and follow along with an updated trade spreadsheet. Once your complimentary time is up, the Mastery will renew at the quarterly rate or annual rate depending on what package you purchased.
BONUS: Long-Term Trading Session
(Annual Package Only)
This is a bonus session for those who want to scale up their accounts and take those longer trades since the main course is designed for smaller accounts. They’re bigger and riskier, but as a result, the reward can be exponentially greater.
BONUS: Pre-Class Live Trading Session
(Annual Package Only)
This special session will help people get up to speed with how Joe runs his specific live trading sessions. Things can happen quickly at times especially when day trading futures, but this gives traders an opportunity to be additionally prepared for the rest of the live trading.

"I have been in the STM room for just over a month and I have seen my trading improve significantly.  Today was my biggest daily profit trading futures.  Half we're my own trades but I would not have been able to take those trade without your teachings.  I wanted to thank you for all of the time and energy you dedicate to the room.  I believe it was last Friday  you were shooting trades out dancing around and hitting winner after winner”:

- AndyF

“Me too, love this room and JR’s coaching. So grateful he’s into helping traders get to where they want to be. He could easily just NOT do this and take vacations whenever he wants lol …”

- AndyH

“I have been a member at Simpler for several years and have tried several other rooms and the reason I chose SZM is because @JR most closely matched my style, so I decided to stick with this room and I am very happy with my choice...”

This class is for novice and experienced traders who want consistency in their trading.  Joe will trade a small 10K futures Account and look to grow said account with simple setups.  This gives you the ability to start with Joe from “day 1” as he continues his march to 1 million dollars.

A1:   Joe started with a small 10K when he started at Simpler in March 2021. Now the account sits at 400K+.  

A2:  He recently adjusted his strategy to fit current market conditions, and the resulting updates fit perfectly with small accounts  via risk management and trade setups.

A3:  A tighter risk reward ratio led to smaller but consistent trades. This class focuses on how to start this journey from scratch

A1:  The goal of this class is to teach and guide traders on how to grow their small account consistently through repeatable strategies by managing your targets, goals, entries, and risk. 

A2:  A crucial aspect of growing a small account is the start… Over the few weeks you’ll find your footing, or stumble.  Let Joe guide you through those critical days during the Live Trading.

A:     The market has been choppy and non-trending this past year… So, naturally, it can be difficult for many traders to adapt to these range bound conditions. This class will teach you how to adapt to said conditions with the goal of a more successful, simple, and repeatable strategy.  

A:    This class is good for traders of any skill level but especially for small account traders looking to grow their account.

A1:  Joe is a commodities and Equities trader that focuses on 6 products: Crude Oil, Gold, Dow Jones, S&P 500, Nasdaq, and the Russell. He trades three different time frames depending on the market, and uses his extensive experience on the Nymex floor and proprietary trading to help his students have an edge.

A2:  Here he will zero in on equities.

A1:   This strategy can work on various account sizes. You can use this strategy with as little as $500 using micros. Joe will be using an account with $10k margin.

A2:   It should be noted that your fees on micros are the same as your fees on minis, which will affect the ratio of your risk:reward. If you are charting, you want to chart with the minis not the micros.

A:   This strategy allows you to trade when you have time by having three different time frames to work with, you as the trader choose when you want to be in front of your computer and enter some trades.

A:  If you want to start the 10k challenge with Joe and trade alongside him during the most critical first few days of growing your small account.
