Interesting concept but by the time the trade alert hit my phone or Inbox the price was above the recommended entry point.

Let us know how your trades from her were making money or losing money? Or just impossible to get filled at reasonable price?

Same here . By the time the trade reco hits my in box the option has already jumped out of buy range. I had only one chance to place a trade out of 4 weeks and that one was a 40% loss. Claimed my refund. Not a viable service in my experience.

Hello pbormann, Did you actually get a money refund OR a switch to another subscription service? Thanks in advance for letting me know.

As someone who is thinking of joining the 25 cent Trader, I would love to hear the reasons behind the ratings. This would help me to decide if I should get in and what , as a newbie to expect besides Nomi’s pitch.

I took 3 trades in 3 weeks.. The first one was great, bought C Calls and made money. The second week, bought the .25 cent FB Call options and sold at .34 cents, not nearly as good as the first Citigroup trade, but still a profit. The 3rd recommendation was buying BABA Puts, I got in at .27 cts and sold at .14 cents, a loss of nearly 50%.. So 2 for 3 on the 3 reco’s. . You don’t make the thousands of $$ as advertised unless you buy 100’s of options, but I bought 20 to 40 options… Read more »

In addendum to my previous post, today’s reco (Aug 5th) was to buy AMD Puts. . I just sold them an hour before the close for .21 cents for a .04 ct loss 🙁 So of the 4 picks recommended since I signed on, Nomi Prins is only batting 50%.. She was right on the calls, but wrong on the Puts. I plan to try one more, and if its unsuccessful, that’s strike 3 and I’ll exercise the 60 day satisfaction guarantee. Actually, I think they offer a 90 day money back guarantee.

You might want to focus more on the calls and less on the puts if these are your results.

So far so good on the newsletter. I’ve recouped the subscription fees within the money back guarantee period. You need to have low option commissions and trade size

Hey! How much money would you recommend starting off with? I was considering the 25 cent trader after watching the video but wasn’t sure if the profits were over exaggerated for how much you need to initially put into it? Would be great to hear your opinion! Thanks

Yesterday was a no entry, but I haven’t lost a trade yet with the service. I play very conservative though and set 20% limits.

I think the key is to remember that 100 contracts is only $2500. I set my size to 1000 or $25,000 per trade which is very reasonable.

Dave, I am researching this offer before putting my money to purchase this service. That’s why I appreciate the input from folks like you who share their experience. What I didn’t understand in what you wrote in your feedback was the valuation of $25 per contract. I thought the contracts were 0.25 cents or less. You mentioned 100 contracts for $2500 & 1000 contracts for $25,000. Could you please clarify?

Ron:
An option is a contract for 100 shares of stock. A price quote of $.25 means per share, so each contract will cost $25.

Dave R
Guest
Dave R

the multiplier on option contracts is generally 100. In order to make this newsletter work it is imperative to have low option commissions. If you’re paying $1 per contract you need to make at least $0.02 to break even

So what is the special thing about placing the trades at 10am? What is Nomi Prins methodology behind her trades?

frank_n_steyn

Possibly she may be referring to what used to be called “amateur hour”, which was between 9:30 and just after 10 am. This occurred many years ago when humans were trading, rather than today’s robots doing most of the the trading. People used to watch TV shows like Wall Street Week and others, or read the financial columnists of daily newspapers, and they would call their brokers, and just set up trades at the open to buy “at market” on recommendations. This “amateur hour” up to 10 am, just might be what she is avoiding. And, again possibly, the 10… Read more »

Very disappointed with this service. It launched without having all the educational videos in place, and my first placement was a loss due to misunderstanding. The second week was a loss because of what she recommended. Today when trying to implement what she recommended, 5 minutes after her notice the strike price had moved out of range.

Dave R
Guest
Dave R

just for clarification. the author likely meant option or contract price not strike price. The strike prices are fixed. My experience has been markedly different

drz
Guest

Yes, you are right I meant the contract price. As I noted bare minutes after receiving the alert from the service the contract price was already above the price recommended, so wasn’t able to execute the recommended trade.

Stan

My experience has been the same, the second I get the notice the contract price has moved 2-3 cents. The trades I have gotten into have been losers -going in the wrong direction. Not happy with the service. Sent messages to customer service regarding issues with no response.

First, be aware there is no 60-day MONEY BACK guarantee. You can “switch” to another Paradigm Press (parent is Agora Financial) at the same price (for the remainder of your annual subscription). Second, as mentioned by others, you will need to purchase numerous option contracts (each option represents 100 shares) in order to make any significant money from each once weekly trade. Third, I have only been a subscriber for a couple of weeks, and BOTH TIMES, by the time I tried to buy the options, the premium/purchase price was higher than what was noted as maximum. The first time… Read more »

Every Monday morning, I make sure to log into my account by 930 am. I have my option order page up and pre filled out with the limit 0.25 and size in my case 1000 and just have to type in the ticker and hit enter when the alert hits.

My recommendation to all is not to trust Paradigm Press. It’s a scam, you don’t get much, they all put their energy in their more expensive services. These middle-man offers don’t help at all. Like Jimmy C said in his short write up, you won’t learn much at all w/ your subscription. We have one and to really do well we would have to sit at the computer every day for long periods of time and we don’t have it. We would get better recommendations w/ the individual services but we will never make our initial subscription back. Painful, expensive… Read more »

same as many others – sitting with phone in hand for text alert – by the time it arrives the price is already above .25, on one pick the price was already on the way back DOWN from it’s high, bought at .25 and lost half as it continued to tank. was able to get into one of the others, it too failed . unless you care to sit and watch the prices all day or you have a faster receive of the texts, don’t waste time or $$ ESPECIALLY if you’re new! i did exercise the 60 day $… Read more »

This site has been great for me helping to wade through scams. Putting in my 2 cents for first time on this topic. And much of this is basic because that’s where I started. This service isn’t a scam. It takes several weeks to start to get an idea of your own sense of risk and abilities and the service’s limitations. Now been doing it for 4 weeks and coming up on my 30 day money back guarantee. It was a refund to credit card if I request it. I had ZERO options trading experience and not much more knowledge… Read more »

ALL COMMENTS HERE FROM THOSE WHO TRIED IT SEEM TO CONTRADICT THIS, AS YOU ARE NOT TOLD WHAT THE SELL LIMIT SHPULD BE AND YOU NEED TO WATCH THE SCREEN EVERY MINUTE TO FIGURE OUT WHEN TO SELL.

One additional note is that her literature talks about learning more how options work. I don’t think I’ll learn any more than the terms on the trade screen. She doesn’t let you into the specific details of her algorithm so that you could eventually try some on your own. You get the idea that some recent news has put momentum into the options of the stock that will effect it within one week and you’re trying to capitalize on that very first day. Her volume triggers and such are not made transparent. I understand the reason. She wants to give… Read more »

So far this has not been that bad of a service. Personally, I like Nomi Prins and have read much of her commentary on King World News. I always question when independent thinkers Like Nomi affiliate with one of the trading service publications because it then becomes one marketing push after another for 20 different services from different people and becomes all about them making money through expensive subscriptions. In this case, it’s a couple grand. So far I have made money on 4 of 6 trades and got out at break even on the other two. I think that… Read more »

“it then becomes one marketing push after another for 20 different services from different people and becomes all about them making money through expensive subscriptions.” You are so right! I have subscribed to a number of services like this over the years. Most try to up-sell you to more expensive services. One of the worst has to be Banyan Hill. They seem to develop a new system every month. They must have tried to sell 10 different services after I subscribed to one newsletter. Furthermore, they NEVER publish the results of these “Hyped-up” expensive services…..at least I can’t find the… Read more »

Out of my first 8 trades, I couldn’t get in, for less than a quarter, in 4 of them. Three of them I have losses, and the last one I was able to get out with a couple of cents up, that vanished after paying fees. Fortunately, I only subscribe for 3-months for $920, and a 90-day full-refund guarantee. Just called Paradigm Press and canceled and will receive my refund within 3 days.

I watched the video today. It was very compelling especially since she so eloquently stated that you don’t need a lot of money to yield high gains. Also it did give me some solace to know that there was 60 Day Money Back Guaranty. I was going to do the 3 month trial and purchase it online then I read the small print and it said the $850 was a non-refundable fee. Even though the written spiel on the right said that there was a money back guarantee. Not wanting to risk $850 of my hard earned money, I called… Read more »

Watched the sales pitch video this morning and was skeptical with day returns as presented.
The old adage ‘If it seems to good to be true, it probably is’ chimes for me. I’ll pass on this ‘opportunity’….

I signed up for a different service (Weekly Cash Flow) and making very little money after 3 months. I was interested in the 25 cent trader as a possible way to recoup my outlay for that service. Thanks to the honest reviewers here, I will avoid this one. FYI to all… Calling up Paradigm Press customer service will not help you address any concern or question with any service. The representatives know little to nothing about each service. They might offer to forward your question or feedback or an email if you send one but…… know that there is a… Read more »

Also thanks to all for your honest contributions. As someone not earning $’s this is alot of money to pay for a service, which seems like more than 50% of the time you’re not making a profit. Think I’ll also skip this one, you guys just helped me make a decision and costly mistake I think as well. I get so pissed off if these ‘rich’ people use/partner with middlemen services like these to sell their services and products. If they only knew what damage it actually does to their own reputation.

With my trading web page open, I wait for the trading email to arrive. As soon as I open it, I am entering the order. I enter at the price the option is at. Forget about their suggested price to trade at. It is never that low. Say the price is at .38, I place my order at .39. That gets a fill. I will then place a close trailing stop and hopefully make a .5 profit. Occasionally the profit is bigger but be satisfied with less. So you need to trade about $1,000 worth to make it worth your… Read more »

In 4 tries, I have yet to get an order placed that hasn’t far exceeded her buy price. These orders were placed within 30 seconds of receiving the email. I only subscribed for 3 months at $850. I have already written this off.

I’m a complete novice to trading, so my knowledge is very little at this point. But my question is: do you really need $2500 to open up an account and start trading? I have seen so many online brokerages which state that it is free to open an account, and many of those same brokerages state that they have no minimum balance requirements. Am I missing something? Nomi says in her sales video that most brokerages require $2500 to open an account. I contacted ETrade, and the representative I chatted with said that it depends on
