SureTrader Review: 10 Reasons Why SureTrader Is The New Best Broker For Short Selling Penny Stocks [VIDEO]

UPDATE: I’ve updated my favorite broker list for 2013, read this new blog post here. DISCLAIMER: Swiss America Securities, Ltd (SureTrader)’s brokerage services are not intended for U.S. citizens, U.S. residents or U.S. corporations.

Definitely read this updated post on the best penny stock brokers for 2013 and why SureTrader has gotten even better in recent weeks.

As I announced the other day, I have a new favorite broker, which I’ve been testing out the past few weeks and with whose CEO I was meeting with down in the Caribbean over New Year’s…when you open an account and use my name as the referral, I got them to offer you some cool features for free, something nobody else can claim :)

This is a Bahamas-based company that clears through US-based clearing firms and this setup opens the doors to some VERY appealing features as their CEO was kind enough to chat about on Friday’s LiveStock on demand:

SureTrader

Here’s the big list and if you have any questions, post them in the comment section of this blog post and I’m sure GG or someone else from theri company will answer them.

1. SureTrader‘s best feature is that their clients are not subject to the Pattern Day Trader Rule. (This is an SEC rule that disallows people with under $25,000 from executing more than 3 day trades in any 5-day rolling period…aimed at protecting new traders/investors from blowing up, it unfortunately also SEVERELY impairs the growth potential for small accounts)…trade as much as you want (within reason)!

It’s been a while since I’ve had less than $25k, but I have recently restarted setup a new account for my trading challenge students who exclusively receive trading alerts and video lessons as I grow this account, restarting at $12,415 (already up to $16,000+ in a few weeks)

Long story short, those of you with accounts under $25k are now SAVED! And the early reviews on Investimonials speak to this

2. I have opened a $50,000 account with SureTrader, but their minimum is just $2,000. This is HUGE for those of you with small accounts. Previously they only cleared through Penson – like their CEO’s sister company SpeedTrader & my favorite onshore broker Thinkorswim – but thanks to my haggling and the tremendous demand for shorts on hard-to-borrow stocks, they also now clear through my special broker whose minimum is $40,000 and 500,000 shares trader per month…so in essence SureTrader is a FAR less expensive way to get the same borrows that only my special broker previously had access to…all you need is $2k now instead of $40k.

In the past, short sellers have complained about my telling everyone where the shorts are, mistakenly believing I was hurting the supply (NEWSFLASH: it’s always been difficult to borrow in great amounts hence why I’m a teacher and not running a billion dollar hedge fund), but their small brains didn’t comprehend that due to the success of my 4 newsletters, shorts aren’t drying up, on the contrary, now that brokers see such great demand, they are doing whatever they can to open more doors for shorting! This is why I want more and more people in this game and I will forever talk down not just to near-illiterate promoters, but also to the short selling community who has wasted my time and patience with their misguided assumptions…so I say to everyone, you’re welcome for my efforts, apology accepted.

3. CEO Guy Gentile (referred to as GG in this past LiveStock episode posted above) built his other company SpeedTrader from nothing into a $20 million/year business in just a few years – verified by being on the Inc. 500, which rigorously examines and verifies company financials – so he’s willing to have SureTrader’s trades clear through several sources – basically wherever we find shares available to short – in order to make sure SureTrader is THE all-in-one broker for short sellers…he just wants commissions so he needs to find the shares to short in order to get his precious commissions…I look forward to SureTrader clearing through more firms to get even more borrows for us!

4. Speaking of commissions, it’s just $4.95/trade for up to 1,000 shares, making it one of the cheapest firms out there and while there will be premiums paid to short sell hard-to-borrow stocks, as we’ve learned too many times in the past even if you have to pay 1 or 2 cents/share shorting pump and dumps, they ALWAYS drop 20, 30, 50, 70 cents/share or $1/share and up to $3+/share. So I would personally pay 3 or even 5 cents/share on some of these pump and dumps like HHWW, KNKT, KYUS, JAMN, LEXG etc. as they drop many dollars per share off their highs so these puny fees and commissions are near irrelevant in the grand scheme of the trade…a trade that would never take place if I can’t find shares to short…it’s just a question of finding shares to short in the first place which is why this new broker is soooo important to me.

5. Also because they are offshore, take away that pesky US rule where when you short any stock under $2.50/share – whether its 10 cents/share or $1/share – you have to put up $2.50/share to cover the trade ie if you want to short 50,000 shares of a 10 cent/share stock, while it should only cost you $5,000 (50,000 x .10), in the US you need $125,000 (50,000 x $2.50)…this has limited me BIGTIME when shorting stocks like PEIX, WLOC and RAYS…they will knock that $2.50 rule down to $2/share, which is HUGE for shorting large amounts of low priced blatant pump and dumps like POTG, MILV, ABOT, NSRS, SPAH…all of which crash 99%+ time and again. For larger traders, I wouldn’t be surprised if you could negotiate personally with Guy to get him down to $1.50/share or even $1/share as opposed to all the suckers in the US stuck forever putting up $2.50/share!

6. And perhaps the most important part about these guys is geography as its open to all international investors and traders…Canadians, German, UK, Australians and ALL international investors and traders…trust me, I know there’s a ton of you internationalites out there as I get dozens of emails daily complaining how no US broker can handle your business…SureTrader can.

So say goodbye terrible Questrade & Thinkorswim Canada which apparently got shutdown to new accounts when TDAmeritrade took them over, remember with a just a $2k minimum to open an account even struggling Europeans can afford to open accounts at SureTrader.

7. Using my name as your referrer when you open a SureTrader account will get you FREE special features (a very nice $100+ bonus), but it also helps us keep track of people I refer as I get an affiliate fee (which I promise to spend on something that I will share with my top students, ‘tis far better to give than to receive…) and more importantly, if you ever have any problems, you come to me and I go crazy on Guy…I’ll make sure whatever is wrong gets righted…and trust me, Guy Gentile doesn’t want to see me angry so in this way I can ensure superior service for my people. :)

8. I can execute orders using my Mac, something my special broker never could do, which is why I had to IM in my orders for their desk to execute them…for which I paid a pretty penny…I have a Windows laptop, but once you go Mac, it’s tough to go back…looking forward to trading from my Mac and still getting great borrows!

9. While I profited over $334,000 in trading in 2011, or 54%, after earning 57% in 2010, thus retaining my title as the #1 ranked trader out of 60,000+ on Covestor the past 4 years in a row, I earn the majority of my income from instructional DVDs and my 4 newsletters. Many in the trading community look down on this, but I am extremely proud to be a teacher first and a trader second. It’s a shame more successful traders don’t think this way or else we’d have a lot more trading knowledge.

But no matter how profitable I am, or my trading challenge students are – now 4 students in the past 3 months have earned $50,000+, Croock, Asheya, Puker & Elkwood – many PennyStocking Silver subscribers and TIMalert subscribers who couldn’t afford my special broker’s $40k minimum time and again cancel out of frustration of not being able to find shares to short.

SureTrader helps solve this problem VERY well so in the few days since I unveiled them, already more people are returning to the game now as they see light at the end of the tunnel.

I totally understand and that’s why I am SO excited about this broker – it’s in my, yours and their best interests to find all the available shares to short possible and them being offshore gives them a huge advantage to achieve this goal which no US broker can.

10. BONUS: I don’t use or recommend using leverage, but I know some of you like it and employ it to grow your profits even faster so far be it from me to stand in your way, this firm offers 6 to 1 leverage and soon they’ll have a plan for 20-1 leverage so have fun, but remember with great power comes great responsibility.

PS I will still be using my other brokers too – for now – since this broker is brand new….the more brokers from my list at http://bit.ly/bestbrokers the better odds you have of finding shares to short.

FAQs:

1. Is having an offshore broker right for you?

I have no idea if it’s right for you, consult your accountant and lawyer…it’s DEFINITELY right for me and a ton of people looking to escape the PDT rule, get great borrows on shorts and all the cool benefits detailed above.

2. Will SureTrader always have shorts on hard-to-borrow stocks?

Not at all, sometimes there are NO shares whatsoever to short – like when the pump and dump AMWI dropped from $1.40 to .30 in 2 hours (what a waste!) – but these guys will have the best inventory around for reasons stated above…if you are a short seller of penny stocks, you’re an idiot not to use SureTrader, even if only for a small piece of your portfolio, and not use their unique features to enjoy greater profits.

3. Are there monthly fees?

Yes, but they’re minimal depending on what software option you choose…nothing more than $200/month and more to the tune of $50/month…there’s definitely a free option too, but it’s all new so ask their customer support and remember to mention my name so you get 30 free trades (pays for a few months’ worth of fees for freeeeee)

4. Why are some people negative on SureTrader?

When I announced this broker, there was an initial backlash from stock promoters, idiots and people who make a living running or promoting prop firms. Promoters don’t want people to be able to short their pump and dumps, absolute idiots rip on anything I do for too many selfish reasons on their part and onshore prop firm people are pissed they didn’t think of going offshore sooner since the new Series 56 rule requiring all prop firm traders to be registered is devastating their shady industry.

Face it: Guy Gentile beat all you people to the punch to create the near-perfect broker (and while their accepting customers is brand new, it took years of planning so anyone trying to copy this setup now is looking at a late 2013 or 2014 start)…lie all you want about these guys to try to keep them from becoming popular, money goes where there are profits to be made and given the MANY advantages listed above, their customers will inevitably perform better than those tied to regulation-strapped firms in the US no different from how intelligent penny stock trader outperform morons who invest thinking these scams are lotto tickets…the wise and informed get richer, same as always on Wall Street.

5. Will I personally move all my assets over to SureTrader eventually?

No, even though this broker is amazing and should forever revolutionize short selling penny stocks, it’s still offshore so it’s inherently riskier than having $ in the US…this will be a small part of my portfolio (currently under 10%) and it will likely grow to be a bigger piece of my portfolio, but never account for all my assets. While I have no idea who 99% of my readers are, I suspect this same type of conservatism will serve them well; for now SureTrader is simply a new and better way to short sell and trade penny stocks so I’m extremely proud to introduce them to you.

6. Why are they taking days to get back to me, can you help Tim?

I cannot help and it’s actually my fault – ever since I unveiled this broker’s many benefits, they’ve been overwhelmed with new accounts from people looking to escape the PDT rule and actually get good borrows with just account sizes of $2,000-$10,000. Give them time and be grateful for their existence in the first place.

    Ive had an account with SureTrader for over a month now (before Tims announcement) and have used them daily. I have had no issues with them whatsoever. Their replys on customer service has slowed down just a bit since the announcement but are still a heck of alot better than the other brokers ive used. They are quick on wire transfers even though its international, platform is quick and any problems you have during trading hours they have online chat for their clients. Personally, even with more than 25k I would still use them in conjuction with my other broker. They have a heck of alot to offer even past the US Regs i.e. great borrows.

    i have made more than 5 milllion between 2000 and 2010 with penny stocks
    only 2008 oct-209oct i made 1.2 million.
    so whos talking here?!
    i must admit, since 2009 oct there were some changes in trading systeme and i cant trade as i trades previous 10 years.

    by the way, im from Estonia
    yeah, how someone not from US can trade stocks?
    if u like to get my track record how i made 1.2 million with sub 1$ stocks in 2008 oct.2009 oct
    i used Nobletrader for that, they´v  been bot up since
    anyway its strange to read here that some small boy is making himself a king…..

    TIMOTHY. I am a super beginner trader, I havne’t even started yet. I know I should jump into it to certain extent, and susbribe to all your stuff (I’ve purchased your pennystock video).

    But as you know it just ISN”T enough if you are super beginner. I also dont know the EXACTLY what 6 to 1 leverage, blah blah.

    So question: What books do you recommend for a person like me so I am complete before I jump in. I want to at least know how to dog paddle before I jump in the water.

     I have to agree with Jay.  My experience so far has been pretty shocking – And I’ve only just signed up for a Demo Account.  If this is the level of incompetence I would receive as a real client I would never transfer any money into an account with SureTrader.  I’d be worried I’d never see it again.  It’s a shame as there seems to be plenty of good things about them, but their customer service (E-Mail and Chat) has been awfully shocking for me.

    How did Jamal start with $500 ?

  • http://www.timothysykes.com timothysykes

    nah you’re just an ingrate, mistakenly believing a new broker specializing in super borrows for shorts is gonna be great at customer service…this is a broker for short sellers, everyone else, feel free to leave, more borrows for us :)

  • Bingostocks

    I was asking that same question myself a few days ago …

  • http://www.timothysykes.com timothysykes

    he had an etrade account since suretrader’s minimum used to be $2k, but now suretrader’s minimum is $500

  • Peter

    ok, so This is a company thats swedish and carribean based to avoid the law that doesn’t allow accounts to trade more than three times a day. But its not intended for U.S. citizens, so then what are the risks to trading with suretrader? are they insured in anyway for the loss of investors money due to glitches or technical difficulties or will you just get stiffed?

  • Nabil

    ok, i have the money, tell me the difference between this broker an e*Trader i have mac and i would like to use it, yesterday suretrader broker told me that they havent got any plattform for macbook. so i refused to change the laptop either use bootcamp. what can you tell me?

    kind regards from Spain!

  • Aboo625

    hey I use a Mac with sure trader, and unfortunately, DAS Pro does not run on Mac so I am forced to use their free platform. to be honest, I have lost a lot of money because of the platform crashing during trades. a few times, I’d put in orders and they’d say they were submitted, but really, it wasn’t submitted, and I had to contact customer support to get out of the stock, lost tons of money. PDT sucks but you can still make tons of money with PDT. my sure trader acct is down over all but my etrade is up 200% this year, with PDT. but anyways. sure trader is great if you can use DAS Pro.

  • http://www.timothysykes.com timothysykes

    i simply use their web trader

  • Nabil

    Ok, i would lige to answer to myself… the software for those whose use mac and want to use windows is parallels platfform 7.0.

    regards from Europe and remembered that: no to sell short we have monetary problems :)!
    It was a joke, come on take care fellas

  • Allaire

    Hi Tim

    can u pls make it clear for me as i’m new to your strategie, still viewing the 4th lesson.
    the question is: when trading do i need to have level 2 in my sure trader pro? or i can execute orders somehow else? because for level 2 they charge additional 70$ per month. so i’ts a bit unclear for me. thnx.

    Horrible platform !!! HIGHLY do NOT recommend. Could not only not SHORT most of the penny stocks but could not even BUY most of them. They do NOT let you trade on weekends and do NOT let you trade 24 hrs on weekdays. Besides this – lotta more limitations and problems. Horrible customer service. When i asked Tim about these problems , he answered that “he did not promote this site” When i asked him more question on Suretrader – he blocked me On YouTube AND Facebook

  • Vic

    and it’s a LIE about 1:6 buying power Simply is NOT true

  • Ed

    dont know about Suretrader because they let you open an account with $500 while their commission per trade depend on the “regular commission rate” or the 5% rule. You never really know how much it is and if it exceeds 5% of the total value you’re charged $100 per round trade. Thats a good chunk of your $500. Nice business plan of these scum bags who “negotiate” their commission. Those $4.95 is only there to hook you in as it appears. No wonder this piece of shit of a broker is set in the bahamas.

  • http://www.timothysykes.com timothysykes

    except they have the shares to short when nobody else does so change your attitude asap you ingrate

  • evilwon12

    Is Tim always an asshole? Seriously, people can and do have differing opinions and should have questioning attitudes. Calling everyone an ingrate only makes you look like an asshole. Walks like a duck, talks like a duck…..This is nothing against your system, just that you are a complete asshole when someone does not drink your Jim Jones Kool Aid without a question. What an asshole. Seriously, does your mom kiss that jackass mouth of yours? Smart – probably / maybe. Asshole – definitely.

  • Jarek

    Does Sure Trader have android app so I can trade from my smartphone
    if not, when do they get it?
    Thanks for all great info Tim

  • Ed

    They just changed the 5% to 15% … for a good reason! Glad they’re that reputable. When I’m right I’m right Tim, accept that much fairness eventhough they got good borrows. The priority is to make trading and the entrusting of funds mutually beneficial, borrows come in second. Anyway I take those bad words back.

  • Joel Mallo

    I totally understand. Glenn clarified this for me today. Do you think it’s a bad idea to use the etrade pro platform, but execute trades on suretrader?

  • Stephen G

    Hi!

    Do people still get 30 free trades? 30 free trades were mentioned as well as a $100 bonus. Was it 30 free trades that are worth over $100 or was it 30 free trades + $100? Either way, if it’s still available that’s very cool!

    Another thing, if the free trades are still given, how long are they good for?

    Thanks! I think I’m nearly ready to take the plunge. :-)

  • Leslie Boross

    I’ll stay, thanks LOL. If others want to pay more for customer service they can do it elsewhere.

    Suretrader’s commissions are 4.95 per trade for up to 1,000 shares then .00495 per share after that. Paying .00495 per share is a lot when you are trading hundreds of thousands of shares of a cheap stock.

    So that’s why there is a disclaimer on this post? Okay. Makes perfect sense.

  • Patientbird

    I tried the SureTrader site to open an account and I to came across the disclaimer:

    “Swiss America Securities, Ltd (SureTrader) does not service accounts for U.S. citizens, U.S. residents or U.S. corporations. Click continue below if you are a Non-US residents and you have read and understood SAS policy with regard to US customers and would like to continue.”
    TIM, if you are promoting this broker for US residents, then you need to look into why there is this disclaimer. Otherwise you will start to look like a shady character.

  • Scott

    Worst broker ever ! could not find 90% of penny stocks to short. This Tim might be a millionaire but he makes 80% of his money by being an affiliate of pussy brokers like SureTrader. Fuck you Tim Sykes ! You are a douche ! Robbing money of people by promoting shitty brokers.

  • Scott

    Why don’t you stop fooling people around Tim ! SureTrader is a bullshit broker. Their platform sucks like anything. No trade history, platform hangs frequently and stops giving the live quote feed, they don’t have 90% of the penny stocks to short (as you brag about in your posts).

    Stop robbing people of their hard earned money by promoting shitty (like yourself) brokers like SureTrader.

  • Dav

    I agree SCAM web site !!! Stay away from this SHIT. Huge, enormous fees that will eat your account alive. Scam from Bahamas. I lost my $1,000 without even trading it

    Hello tim im from london im very interested in trading penny stocks what platform do you recomend for UK residents.

  • Nicothespanishprofessor

    it makes sense to me and his Spanish is correct. So maybe instead of being an A** h**** you can help the guy and do something nice for the day. Maybe is a good time for Tim to expand his audience to bring someone that speaks Spanish and it’s not an A H. XD. I’m in.

  • Your Moma

    The disclaimer is there so SureTrader is not liable if your accounts get seized by U.S authorities for violating SEC rule. This sounds more like ShadyTrader, but Tim the cock muncher will promote anything for the right money.

  • http://www.timothysykes.com timothysykes

    I use Suretrader and they have shorts every now and then that nobody else does…case in point CHNR the other day, ignore them at your own risk moron

    hi ,Mr. Sykes , l have received your lessons ,thank you , l am opening a demo with sure trader on your say so ,l trust your honesty . however , l am a lot older than yourself with no stable income but hungry to make plenty for my retirement and l will always trade beyond that . l have worked for many years selling life insurance etc.. on a door to door , but l lost 50.000$ 20 yrs ago not related to trading , so when l heard about you ,l thought , there is a genuine guy who really want to make others rich ,l hope it will be realized ,good day ,young man ,

    Sure Trader by far has the worst customer service ever dude. I’ve had cases where they either didn’t respond to my email at all or they responded with a half-assed answer. Also they are way to costly, definitely not worth it. I’d say the best out of all those brokerage accounts would be TD-AMERITRADE. They have awesome customer service, they are pretty cheap and most importantly you can trade with them premarket.

  • http://www.timothysykes.com timothysykes

    but TD ameritrade doesnt have shorts of the best stocks so i cant use them…enjoy your lower fees and better customer service, i’ll enjoy my millions of dollars made from my strategy, your call entirely :)

    Hi Tim, i just opened account at sure trader, and they request some special referrer code. when i have entered your name, that didn’t accept it. Is there some special code to get under your name (referrer)?? Thanx

  • Michael

    Ok, So Tim, it has come to my attention that to be a US resident and still use SureTrader you have to also set up an iBoss account thru SureTrader to bypass getting in trouble for using ST if a US resident. Well throughout the whole process of setting up a new account it did not allow me to set up an iBoss account. Am I suppose to get an email that pertains to setting up an iBoss account after I’ve filled out the ST app??? Please let me and other users know!! Thanks!

    Is SURE TRADER the only broker for international traders ?? are there no other brokers takes international traders such as UK , Europe ?Also sure trader is good for shorting stock but do they good for buying stock as well ? expecting some light on it Mr.Tim ..Thanks in advanced : )

  • j611obrien

    I’m a challenge student and recently opened a SureTrader accound and so far have been happy with their customer service. I am however having an issue accessing their ActiveWeb Platform as well as their SureTrader Pro software due to what I’m being told by DAS is a network restriction at my workplace. I find this pretty surprising because my work network doesnt restrict much.
    Has anyone else expereinced this? I can’t imagine I’m the only one attempting to trade from a work network.

    SureTrader does not roll over accounts from other brokerages.

  • Chandler

    I tried to put 10,000 in the account, 2 weeks later no word from them. I called them twice telling them to hurry up and take my money, they said they will put a note in. And then a week later I said cancell the wire. They have a bunch of hidden fees. Tim I love your stratagy man I am a challenge student and I tried to use them but they wouldn’t let me. 3 weeks was enough for me, I just opened a bunch of regular accounts so now I have 12 day trades. Good enough in till I can get 25 grand. TD isn’t too bad for shorting so far for me.

  • Mark

    If I have $20,000 dollars and buy a $2 stock for 10,000 shares, and the stock increases by 2% is it realistic that if I sale them that someone will buy the stock at a 2% increase? Say the volume is at 100,000, 500,000, or 1 million.

  • mikem

    I am not Tim, but if you have a Suretrader account then you have iBoss. Go to “Client Login” at the top right and under that you’ll see iBoss. Just use the same username/password to get in. Hope this helps.

  • mikem

    I am from the U.S. and had no trouble signing up. If you look closely it says Suretrader “does not solicit U.S. resident clients” that doesn’t mean that you can’t sign up, they just aren’t allowed to advertise in the U.S.

  • mikem

    I wouldn’t sweat it. I kind of fudged it and still got signed up. I went to my bank and got someone’s card that worked there and I used their name/number. Who knows if they called him, but I still got my account activated.

    So if i get a more stable stock like Cisco will they stop my trade after 3 to 5 days because I also want to penny stocks but I am thinking about putting in $2500 for starters? I’m just learning the stock market now and when I learned enough I’ll be glad to join.

  • gohogs_trading

    I’m using Suretrader’s web-based platform, and the only “sell” orders that will execute or straight market sells. I have set limit orders and watched the price climb past the limit and back down again with no order being triggered. I’ve tried stop market orders, stop limit orders, and trailing stops…none seem to work, and has cost me a little $$. The limits orders on buys seems to work fine.

    I try to use their live chat, and it is very frustrating and takes them forever to respond with a cryptic answer.

    Anyone else have this issue?

  • mikem

    I am having issues with that too almost, but my orders always fill at the prices I set. Sometimes though when I go to set a market stop, my order gets filled immediately without ever reaching my stop price. Don’t know if I set it too close to the current price or what, but yeah more commission for them I guess. I still feel like the no pdt rule and 6x buying power make Suretrader worth the hassle. I am hoping they improve.

  • thestash565

    Suretrader is being investigated by Suretrader is currently under investigation by the Royal Bahamas Police
    Force for fraud, larceny and theft from client accounts. Clients of
    Suretrader are unable to extract capital from their accounts.

    Timothy Sykes didn’t have this problem because he knew the CEO personally, who viewed him as a marketing asset. The company seems semi-fraudelent, as most users encounter difficulty when trying to extract money from their accounts.

  • thestash565

    It’s also so that they can withhold the funds from your account. Most people are having trouble getting any of their capital back from SureTrader, it’s a scam.
