I would love to know exactly where I find this “turbo cap niche market”? I have never in all the time that I received solicitations from from Taipan or Agora seen such misleading drivel as I have from this service. Making claims of +1000% returns, what a load. How many of you options traders have ever had consistent returns of over 1000%? How pathetic that they resort to this type of misleading advertising to draw people in. Call this service what it is, an option service. Turbo Caps!!! Grow up you guys, you should be ashamed of yourself, and Zach… Read More »

when cooper was running death cross trader, he called the top of subprime, the fall of the dow through 12,500 (despite Taipan idea that the Dow was going to 16k), and called for the UK economy and its banks to implode. they should seriously bring cooper back. made a ton of money with him. Zach’s track record is full of -100% losers.

What a loser this is I wish I had read the reviews before I subscribed. I could have lost less money if I had chosen stocks myself. What an idiot the guy running this is. He reminds me of a con man salesman. And idiot that I am I fell for it but only for a few months. I feel sorry for those who do subscribe and I doubt that it is around much longer. What a waste. Even when I asked a question it was ignored and it took 4 emails to cancel the service. At least they did… Read More »

This is a con operation as far as I am concerned. I should have read the comments here before I subscribed. I marked consistency so high because it was consistently bad. WE should all get together and tar and feather Zach. I do not see how he can continue to spout out his enthusiastic choices. HOW can he live with himself??

Just another note, as I try to contain my laughter, in the 70’s my mom bought GE with 100% of all dividends going into reinvestment shares, 2,000 shares later and now hovering around 17 bucks, but hey look at all the cash she saved in broker fees over 40 years! Also ATT, bought in the 80’s, same reinvestment strategy, a few years ago ATT did a 3 for 1 reverse swap, one share for 3 of hers, again no fees, what a deal! Great write-up of a dismal strategy.

Just finished a year with this guy and if you invested $1000 in each option he recommended (and sold at the exact time his e-mail hit your in box), you would have made 58 trades during the year and walked away with an ROI of -12.5% (worse if you didn’t get out exactly when his “get out now” e-mails arrived)! And that was with a lucky streak in the past 3 months because he was horrible in the first half of the year. If you want to make money with this service, just do the EXACT OPPOSITE of what he… Read More »

Dave, Sorry for your loss, but these kind of creatures don’t give a s—t about what they do to others finances, just as long as they collect their $$$$$. It’s all about finding a way to get others to release their money and people like Jim Finks, Harry Dent, et. al., etc have found their way into our wallets and selling us their bull—it that makes them a fortune and leaves us standing in the mist of WTF!!!! I also worked with him and lost my ass. I did’t have one winner, all losses, but you don’t see these kind… Read More »

I tried one of their services and missed this little line in the sign-up:
“If you aren’t completely thrilled with the service, just let me know and I’ll give you a prompt refund… minus a 10% registration fee… no questions asked.”
10% “registration fee”… So who makes money on this deal? The writer of the service! Now THAT is a no lose trade!

10% to press a button on their keyboard, such bull—-t The money grab never stops.

I clearly read in the Velocity Trader pitch email the exact same line, and can 100% attest as these guys are 100% frauds. Signed up for Velocity Trader and within 2 weeks realized it’s complete BS. I called to cancel and I evidently have a “personal liaison”, in other words the guy who signed me up for the service. He promptly informed me that they would happy to cancel my subscription, but SORRY NO REFUNDS. I brought up the aforementioned line in the email, and he not only denied that it existed, he stated I agreed upon signing up as… Read More »

I always wanted to be involved with options and a newsletter by an experienced trader made sense. You know, just let them do all the work. Long story short, it’s been a disaster. I’ve had one or two soso’s but mostly losers. I’ve noticed however, that when a recommendation is made it almost always looses value immediately before starting to rebound. The latest recommendation to buy “OPEN” July 80 puts up to $6.50 was currently trading for $4.70. I watched it for a few days and sure enough, you can currently pick them up for $3.20. I’m still hesitant though… Read More »

This service stinks. Poor picks that go south as soon as I bought them. They do appoligize
a lot. I canceled after 2 months of losses.

Was Velocity Trader formerly called Death Cross Trader ?
I looked it up. Death Cross was doing poorly, so it was
renamed Velocity Trader.

No it was never called Death Cross Trader. It was initially named Velocity Trader and still is.

Don’t waste your money on Velocity Trader. I’m down $5,000 including the subscription fee. A very expensive lessons in vertical spreads that are much cheaper and easier to learn. Occasional iron condor. Also, the chat section is so punitive to newbie questions…all you see are fill confirmations and then the occasional curt reply to the “idiot” that asks a question that’s been answered before.

Don’t waste your money on VT. The reality is not what think. I have had very poor results. Down $8K in 2 months following advice on position sizing from Jim Fink.

Horrible service and Jim is extremely rude and not helpful at all. The forum deletes any questions that Jim instructs them to delete. He is also quite rude when he does respond. Also the service has produced extremely poor results. I have lost more than $6K in 3 months using his system. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY WITH VELOCITY TRADER.

Does this system have something to do with warrants? I was thinking it has to and you can’t trade warrant with every and any stock. All’s you have to do is ask your broker if the stock offers warrants.

Hopefully this post will help someone avoid this trap, Velocity Trader, an absolute con job. The initial pitch is enticing, trade recommendations for options with a history of 100% winners. Double your money on these recommendations from an experienced millionaire trader. Here’s the thing folks. Velocity trader is simply this – recommendations on credit and debit spread options, period. But, the recommendations are losers. It doesn’t take long, 2 weeks for me, to see the writing on the wall. Every Tuesday the “recommendations” are sent out, typically on short term option spreads. But, here’s the kicker. A close look into… Read More »

So would it be profitable to simply trade exactly opposite Jim’s recommendations?
