I show ALL my trades HERE and was up 38% in 2012 and 66% in 2013…not to mention creating these 2 millionaire students in the past few weeks:

Here’s a guest blog post from a new trading challenge student researching how hedge funds have done the past 2 years:

Normally hedge funds are considered to be one of the best places to put your money. When you look at the elite funds like SAC Capital (well, as SAC used to be) returning 25% a year and you don’t even have to do anything but give them your money, it sounds like a pretty good deal! This year has been a little unusual though. Through the third quarter of 2013, hedge funds had returned a measly 6%, while the S&P500 had returned roughly 20%. Ouch. That means you would have done better simply putting your money in an index fund tracking the S&P rather than investing in an elite hedge fund.

This made me wonder how hedge funds performed in 2012, since we are awaiting the final verdict on 2013 as the year comes to a close (though things are looking bleak). Here are the top 30 hedge funds of 2012, compiled by Bloomberg Markets Magazine. Keep in mind that if you actively trade with Tim or one of the other guru’s, you have the potential to make far more than this.

  • mike19710

    Stick to your penny stocks. You don’t have the talent to compete with the big boys, so quit comparing yourself to someone who makes a 100x more than you.

  • http://www.timothysykes.com timothysykes

    Haha stupid snob, I’ve created 2 millionaires from scratch now, make fun of penny stocks all you want, I’m gonna take them mainstream, watch in awe ingrate :)

  • Mike

    2 Millionaires out of how many students. Most hedge fund mangers as the ones listed above spend more in dog food. What an idiot….

  • http://www.timothysykes.com timothysykes

    out of just a few hundred in my http://tim.ly/sykesmc student…remember i just started this program a little over 2 years ago and people thought it was IMPOSSIBLE to create a millionaire so quickly…as the years pass and i create more millionaires, you’ll understand just how good and unique my teachings are, but for now, please do doubt, your negativity makes me work even harder and please do share it on social media as my first millionaire student also doubted me at first, thanks in advance!

  • Mike

    Tim, I respect your trading, but please don’t put yourself up against people who manage millions of dollars a day. You and I both know its a far more complicated process.

  • http://www.timothysykes.com timothysykes

    Who gives a shit if its a “more complicated process”, is their strategy more applicable to the common man? Not at all…my strategy is far better to the average reader and its for those people who I write…and teach…so take your snobbish elitist attitude outta here, go chew on some caviar ya “rich” troll LOL

  • mike1970

    Dam its fun aggravating you…so predictable!

  • http://www.timothysykes.com timothysykes

    not aggravated at all, what you don’t understand is I’m using you for my social media marketing…stupid trolls, you don’t even understand how my business works LOL keep it up moron :)

  • Mike1

    Booooo. It’s so easy to change your IP address Tim. What a dumbass.

  • jason14

    Boooo!

  • hello

    Look now Im in CZECH REPUBLIC. Care to block again, Tim???

  • Jason is Lonley

    Jason14 get a life. If you’re lonely go on a social media site or find someone in real life to talk to. This section is to comment on the article not pick fights with the guy who runs the site

  • mike2

    Not Bored at all. Actually doing some trading research. You missed the conversations posted, because Transparency Tim decided it wouldn’t be a good idea for his trading audience to see them.

  • http://www.timothysykes.com timothysykes

    see my post on my 7 groups of haters, this guy fits into several categories…anyone willing to change their ip address multiple times isn’t a reader, he’s a typical troll

  • Itu

    The thing about these returns is that we have to remember that these guys have billions in assets. I dont know how much they are actually using for trading. But I’m sure anyone of us would not mind making 1% on one billion which would be $10 Million.

    Percentages may be small but the 1-5% is a lot when you’re playing with billies. And all you haters out there just quit it. You are obviously broke and in desperate need of money.

    Rather than being an enemy and hating on Tim just join him and work your ass off. I prefer Forex but I still admire Tim for what he is doing with PStocks!
