Alpha Contracts

By marystjohn, May 4, 2018

Does anyone know what Agora Financial Alpha Contracts are? The subscription is $2000.00, no refund. They are also giving you a free HP chrome computer. They send you an Alpha Number that you then enter at your brokerage account and instantly get Thousands of dollars put in your account. Sounds like selling puts, also sounds totally ludicrous. Any ideas what this is about? Thanks Mary

Sounds like bonds to me. I’ll save the $2000 and buy a bond with it.

Same question as above. I spent an hour listening and don’t know anymore than before. Having lost $5k since Janurary not in mood for a $2000 loss.

It says it’s not options. I also think it is bonds.

Gave it a quick listen. Alpha Contract? Never heard of it before and I’ve been in the business for over 40 years. Could be a term to obfuscate while collecting $2000 from people desperate to make money. I’m very suspicious. In any event, I don’t invest in anything that can’t be explained in terms of how much I have to invest and how much is at risk at any given time. I am especially wary of anyone who cherry picks the winners and says nothing about the losers. When in doubt, I believe the old saying: If it sounds too… Read more »

I watched the entire Alpha Contract Presentation and did not know any more after the presentation than when I had started, except Agora wanted my $2,000 on a no refund basis, UGH! I searched Goog;le to learn what is an Alpha Contract and did not find anything but Agora’s $2,000 claim to fame on my pocketbook! Furthermore, if the Alpha Contract was such a great deal and any average Joe or Mary Jane could do it, Agora should have conveniently offered a simple $39″iron-clad” limited 30 or 60 day refundable trial period to experience this bountiful advertised income opportunity.

Now down to $1250. Maybe not getting enough punters.
Original pitch ‘when the slots are gone, they are gone”
looks like they are not “gone”

These alpha contacts are indeed bonds. The confusion becomes more because they never say how much to invest in order to realize the Income quoted.

I called Agora and inquired about this Contract Income Alert. Spoke for 2o minutes with a Ben and then a Kristin. They do say the service is buying discounted corporate bonds and said the example they gave made $55k on $35K for one year. They acknowledged that the service had no longterm track record. They recommended you have $40,000 per year to invest. They described the nature of Bonds: buy at a discount, get a premium paid to you quarterly or semi-annually, then receive a lump-sum payment at maturity of the bond. They said the amount Zack recommends is priced… Read more »

Did they tell you the length of a bond? Is it 1,2..5 year? When they said you may not hold it till maturity, does that mean there is a market to sell them like options or stocks?

I dont want to assume anything….. but I will assume there is a secondary market that we buy on and presumably can sell on.
Maybe call up and ask these questions: agora is 800 708 1020 or 410 454 0499.
Pls share your findings, thanks!

They are buying junk bonds, which is below investment grade. Therefore, banks and or insurance companies are not allowed to invest money.

I would think so as well. It is the same reason that they do partial unit sales to public sometimes at us$1000/unit contract. Yet, they must be master broker to get their fees from the Bond issuers..

I was just wondering the same thing. When I tried to google some of the things I found, I ran into some links about “repos” and FICC. On Schwab.com I searched for contracts FICC and got a message, “Did you mean FDIC?” uh, no. Of course the thousands of dollars…probably depends on how much you have to invest in the first place.

By the way you can buy a brand new 11″ Chromebook computer (which they are giving away with this offer) for less than $200.

And I doubt that that nominal “freebie” would get sent to me at a discounted lifetime subscription rate of $1750…… I am still curious.

Stansberry has a similar service on discounted corporate bonds with good success, but they are straight up about what it is. Stansberry says once you trade bonds, you’ll never medd with stocks again…I agree.

I propose, if everyone has PayPal, you could each send me the $175. But before we do is everyone happy with that arrangement? I will take the first ten receipts from Amazon and then cut it off, and I will then: order; download freebies, copy to Google drive and send to our group; forward all correspondences to our group via BCC re this newsletter. No guarantees about quality, customer service, or the future on this one; we are just “syndicating risk” as it were. Can I give out the password and login to everyone OR would they block us because… Read more »

Please note, Travis DID respond, in a way, by covering this subject of Junk Bonds, pls read ay 30, 2018 / Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe / Free / What the heck are “Alpha Contracts?” Can you really “Lock in $52,000 with just 4 clicks of the mouse?” What’s being teased by CONTRACT INCOME ALERT? Based on what I read, I am not interested anymore, because I think we have a big, maybe huge, correction within a few years…. (and yes, now is the time to learn about junk bonds so we can buy them even cheaper after a major correction).… Read more »

They don’t say that you instantly have money deposited to your account … they say that you have locked in future income … they are telling you which corporate bonds to buy … in the example where they say that you will gain $ 22,000 in future income, you would have to buy about $ 40,000 worth of corporate bonds and that income of
$ 22,000 would come to you in increments of about $ 2750 per year.

In its early days, I had the misfortune of paying what is now Agora $5k for promised financial and investing advice. What I got was to be put on the mailing lists of advice-peddling newsletters full of vague promises and limited deliverables, all for a fee of course. A racket from the get-go.

why not invest in yourself by gaining credit history and securing a real investment by getting an unsecured business line of credit while exploring the zero interest credit facilities for the first 12 months? If you’re the type to listen to all the noise without them actually telling you, then we’re all victims, but I get things done and I’d never invest in Alpha Contracts “The Beginning of Debt and the contract of immediate first position pay outs inspite of profit loss quarters lol. For more email me or simply put yourself in the way of millions!

It looks like” alpha contract” has many traps and pitfalls. Am I right? It did not tell how much to invest to that $55,000? How soon you can get your gain?

Hi Folks! They’re at it again, and yes, no concrete information about 1/ what you’re actually investing in ; 2/ how much you have to invest for how long; 3/ Exit strategy?

Does anyone know if this is the same as “Freedom Checks?”
