The person who posted this negative article about River Oaks Capital Corporation is NOT a subscriber, has NEVER been a subscriber, and now never WILL be a subscriber to our service. The accusations posted on this site are based on pure speculation and are not founded on actual experience. This person challenged us directly with a bombardment of pointed and negative e-mails over the course of a few weeks and obviously did not read our FAQ page, Track Record legend, or disclaimer page that clearly explains postings, figures, percentages, and gain/loss ranges in full detail. After responding to each and… Read more »

The fact that you are in business since 1976 doesn’t prove anything. Madoff was in business for much longer. Some services give only entry points and don’t provide any guidelines when to exit the trade. You pretend to provide such guidelines based on target and/or stop loss. So when you present your performance, you should base it on the target price (if hit) or stop loss price (if hit). For tracking purposes, this is the only way to calculate performance. I actually went over FAQ page which says: “We use our EXITS and STOPS as trigger points for closing ‘open’… Read more »

I came so close to falling for that one. I really respect Sjuggerud, but he made it sound like Icelandic bonds were not only high yield, but also super safe because that's the way Icelanders are. Turns out, Icelanders are real risk takers due to their fishing heritage according to Michael Lewis. Now, the money managers in Iceland are women because they are not risk takers.

I put my $10,000 into Perth Mint Certificates instead which are now worth almost $40,000.

I’m not one of those conspiracy guys but if you look to the Trans-Texas Corridor, I don’t think it’s any mystery that with high fuel prices it’s easier to truck things through Mexico and then to Texas and on to Canada than it is for all of those cheap Chinese goods to come in through California and be trucked through 4000 miles of roads. They can essentially cut their cost in half by going Texas to New York and East Coast and Eastern Canada. Amero? Maybe. Profits – definitely… On the devaluation – first – you must look to the… Read more »

Don’t fret on the Canadian Dollar. It’s only falling in response to 2 things: first, commodities are falling and that means less demand for it, second, hedge funds are unwinding a lot of dollar related shorts and carry trades, so the dollar is becoming stronger every day. Once the music stops though, and the inflation kicks in, and demand for the dollar weakens, Canadian money will once again be at parity to the dollar or better in my opinion.

absolutely fraudulent. and yes i was a member for about 2 weeks until i realized that their performance was completely unachievable. From their FAQ and their nightly updates, it looks like they give precise instrcutions on when to buy, sell or set a stop. but they DO NOT tell you when to sell or anything. THey have no exit strategy, there is no way one can make returns like ones they tell you, because you cant guess the highs of an play ever. Stay away, there are much better services online like: Momentum Options and Options Intelligence

This is a whole report on the state of the currency. If you go to:

http://www.occ.treas.gov/deriv/deriv.htm

it gives a list of all derivatives from all the major banks under OCC control.

Go to: http://www.occ.treas.gov / deriv / deriv.htm and select a Quarter. The whole report is very interesting but you can skip down to the graphs and charts throughout and see that this 2nd Quarter 2008 had $183 trillion in outstanding derivatives.

Sorry about the link – apparently posting links creates issues with the posting engine.

I was ready to pull the trigger on a subscription until I read the reviews in this forum. I took another look at the posted track record and sure enough, the “Change” value is based on the “high” price of the option, not the actual sell price which would presumably be either the “exit” price or the “stop” price. Nobody I know has the ability to sell an option at the exact high price. I recalculated the 2010 results using the stop/exit price and it turns out that only 1 out of 72 trades actually hit the recommended “exit” price.… Read more »

I looked at the Testimonials and could not find the 300% winning Citigroup trade anywhere on the list of trades. No phone number to verify it.

The advertisement made me checkout the webpage. Glad I have Stockgumshoe for my backup.
