OMG! What a complete disaster this Skykes program is! I spent $850 for a 3 month trial which ends 4/20/18. Not really a “day trader” and do know the penny stock risks but thought I’d spend some time playing with pennies while waiting for the next market crash. His first recommendation (before you buy the service) tells you that you will make $9600 in quick order BUT you don’t find out how much of his penny stock pick you have to buy UNTIL AFTER you buy his service. YOU NEEDED TO INVEST $15000 in order to do this. Normally would never do this but gambled on his first big test of his new service. Biggest, dumbest thing that they did NOT do is too send TEXT alerts so you actually know when he wants you to buy or sell a stock yet in his advertising, he says some trades will only be “hours long”! HE SENDS EMAILS OUT, NO TEXTS! By the time you get his email, the stock has already shot up way past his “buy up to price”! I did buy into the first 2 stocks only because I was off work and could watch “emails” 24//7 and first stock went up but leveled off then started tanking. I watched closely, waited for this “experts” SELL ORDER which came WAY too late, fortunately I took it upon myself to sell quickly and broke even. Had I waited for his “sell order” I would have lost $6,000 on his first stock pick! I gave this guy one more chance and bought into the second recommendation, late email announcement, barely made it in, up a little, then down, I sold off quickly WAY before this “expert” sent out a “sell order”! NOT sure why I was paying this guy for this service, hell I have penny gold miners that go up and down more in a day than his picks. Some weeks, no stocks were recommended. Some weeks, he gets the “inside news” too late, stock price already has gone up but he still sends out a “hey, I know the price has already gone up a lot so just buy a HALF position”. Stocks end up being duds with minimal movement. I sent Agora/Sykes a letter complaining about NO TEXT alerts and never got a professional response. I called Agora only to be on hold for hours and hours listening to elevator music. Time passed, got last weeks “professional penny pick” at around 11;45am PST, I get into my Fidelity account already knowing that this stock will already be way past the “buy up to” amount and …………sure enough, way over, then an hour later, Sykes realizes he made a mistake on the News from this company via misreading the title of the News article, then recanting. All this within approx 2-3 hours! I finally got so disgusted I called Agora again, this time only had to wait on hold for 30 minutes just to be told “it’s my problem that I don’t do my stock trading and/or emails on my Iphone” and “no refunds”. I complained about how bad it is to not have TEXT ALERTS then she tells me they are implementing this service THIS WEEK, you know, just 2 weeks before my subscription expires!! Agora Rep totally contradicts herself by admitting they are finally doing TEXT ALERTS, the very thing I wrote to them about early on as I just assumed that they would use 21st century tech to get us the fast moving penny stock info out FAST. NOPE, not until now and they did not even thank me for the “free advice” that I had orig. sent them despite now using it. Now after almost 3 months of watching this service, it does NOT deliver what Sykes promises, stock tips are way too late, even if you got the email, you’d be lucky to buy in at the recommended price. He waits too long to act, then too long to notify his paying customers, both when to buy and just as importantly WHEN to sell. I’m a nice guy, I know the risks with penny stocks but this service is just AWFUL. The only person making money is Sykes (and Agora). I’m already a life time member of Rickards full services thru Agora and have spent some good money but that did not sway the Agora Rep. Love my Rickards service but I’d be hard pressed to buy anything again from Agora unless they offered a 30 day trial or some sort of guarantee. I ordered Nomi Prins service for $2000 non refundable. They NEVER ONCE MENTIONED THAT IS AN “OPTIONS BUYING RECOMMENDATION” service until AFTER you pay them! I DON’T DO OPTIONS! Called immediately and they did not process my order but another example of how aggressive Agora is getting. I don’t think ol’ Bill Bonner would approve of his modern day business practices. What a shame.

Sounds like he is as bad as Alan Knuckman, another Agora lame duck scam artist.

Bill Bonner can certainly read…. He knows exactly what is going on… How many foreign properties does he now own? Where do you think he collects his massive income from? Grape vineyards in France are not cheap. He passes himself off as one “who is above the crowd”… Yeah sure…. too high up to be sued, that is it my friend! I got stiffed in three programs. So I now read the gumshoe. So do not be fooled. Bonner is living high on the hog on the dreams of desperate people attempting to grab just a little piece of the financially engineered Bernanke economy. Wait up Bonner is no angel. He is enjoying a stress free life with multiple income properties on the backs of subscribers unfulfilled dreams and sheltered from any accountability. He is an example of the deep state. Insulated by LLC and Corporation law.

Great detailed comment Mike Marshall. I totally agree with everything you said and also been thru most of it too. I now come here before I send money, so I didn’t send any to Tim Sykes Penny Stocks. Small condolence that someone else is also going thru what I did, but really SAD! I started with James Altucher/Agora Qtrly. payment 2 months ago and was supposed to get weekly alerts but he also didnt mention they are options. So I quickly had to re-school myself on options and study for a week before TD would even accept my entry and also needed WAY more $$ in my account that he said. I have now quit all of the Agora programs and sleep so much better. I think most of their money goes to the writers that know how to PUFF up all their dozens of different programs to make them sound different. Was just trying to add some money to my Social Security. Pretty sad they are ripping off retirement aged folks. Everyone, BE CAREFUL! Always check Gumstock for reports before you send your money! Have a nice Spring everyone! Lonni

Yes, thank God for gumshoe! I was considering joining Time Sykes weekend pick program when my phone died just when their sunscreen button popped!
After it recharged, my better self nudged me to search gumshoe. I saved $3000.00

Totally agree with the other comments here. In a moment of real WEAKNESS I got sucked into this black hole called “weekly fortunes” and signed up for the year. WHAT AN EDUCATION it has been, at the very least. The
most irksome part of this “service”, as already stated, is that the recommendations ALWAYS come TOO LATE. Have written time and again to Agora and directly to Mr. Sykes about this – no comment at all from Agora and only a snide
comment from Sykes. Just look at the pictures of him drinking margaritas on the veranda of some fancy resort hotel while sneering into the camera – for me, that says it all. So, I KNOW that what I did (sign up for this dreck) was WRONG – however, silver lining, learned a very valuable lesson. Stay away from “services” like this – especially ones that don’t offer a refund for non-performance.

Sounds like TickerCandy is looking for a free ride on Timothy Sykes! That is illegal Ticker.

Haha, NO. I think the program is PURE BS. I actually recommend you save everything and when the program is over feel free to send it to me or save it for yourself and compare it to the claims made by Agora/Sykes. Then use the info for future reference when someone tries to sell you a bill of goods. I feel sorry for anyone who was duped and am only looking to put the info out to the public so others are not scammed. Support@tickercandy.com @TickerCandy

Maybe try reading Sykes’ blog post which mentions Agora and their tangled web of bs. Sykes even replied saying “Yup!” when someone asked if he was taki
