As someone who encourages people to trade penny stocks (which are universally hated, especially on Wall Street), brags about the millions of dollars I’ve made (every trade detailed HERE and the millions of dollars my top students have made (as you might’ve seen HERE and HERE and HERE in the stock market using giant piles of cash like these on social media:

…well, let’s just say I have some haters LOL.
And while many people believe you should ignore your haters, my first hater also became my first Millionairestudent so I have a different take on them as I am willing to teach ANYONE and this post is specifically written to those who HATE me.
No different from how I like to highlight my big losses over the years as I did HERE and HERE and HERE as opposed to most traders who like to pretend that they’re superior and that they don’t have big losses…newsflash, when you tweet over and over and over again about a stock short or long and it goes the other way and then you’re silent on for a few days, then never refer to that stock again, everyone knows you had a big loss so you might as well just talk about it and accept that we’re all human and make mistakes.
And I write this post because I also expose penny stock scams for a living, as I did HERE and HERE and HERE, no matter who or what celebrity is involved, no matter if I can find shares to short and profit from, I just like justice and good information to overcome bad misinformation…so this is also my attempt to cut through some of the misinformation I see about myself and my teachings.
First off, I have now been teaching my stock trading strategy for 10+ years and, from the beginning, there’s been negativity and hate, mainly because the vast majority of people who “teach” in finance are full of shit and snake oil salesmen.
I’ve even written a bestselling book which I give you for FREE here . From the start I’ve had an advantage in teaching because I’ve turned $12,415 into $1.65 million in 4 years through stock trading in both bull and bear markets, not on any one stock, but through a process of thousands of trades, not all wins, but most definitely winning more than I lose. I have been making a steady six-figures/year from stock trading every year since (I just passed $100,000+ in profits in 2017 5 months into the year already), whether I trade with a big account or small. I’m not afraid to show my income tax returns and audits too as the beauty of being real in an industry full of scams is that I have NOTHING to hide and so I will confront any and all negativity simply by telling the truth, as unbelievable as it may be to some…my crazy life is not always so simple and can’t always be explained in 140 characters or a 60-second video.
But, because I’m used to people doubting me and my knowledge, I offer a free penny stock trading guide here and free video lesson series here and I now have 800+ FREE videos on my http://tim.ly/sykestube channel with tons of live webinars, live trades and video lessons galore so you can get a taste of how real I am…I sometimes even go on unplanned rants like this:
But, the reason for writing this post is that lately my haters/doubters have increased due to the success of my topstudents that have started to go viral in videos like this:
…and while it’s truly laughable that anyone thinks these guys are “paid actors” using “fake accents” and that they’re fake testimonials like some unscrupulous financialhave been known to do, in my case, these guys actually are my real students who learned everything about the stock market from my video lessons, DVDs and webinars. Aside from just their trading profits, they also give live webinars to my other students because they’re actually pretty damn smart, and more importantly, entirely self-sufficient…I provided training wheels in the very beginning now they don’t need me AT ALL.
That’s my goal for every one of my students, to help speed up your learning curve so that you can become totally self-sufficient in time…you can learn every single thing I will ever teach you in the same 15-20 years it took me to learn it all, but why wait that long and make so many bone-headed mistakes and miss out on so many opportunities between now and then?
And I have to say, my top students’ success is NOT due to my giving them my picks ahead of time, as some claim, LOL, sorry, it’s difficult to keep from laughing at some of the conspiracy theories out there, but if my haters were actually in the surprisingly solid that I wrote about here), they would see that unlike every other chatroom where it’s just follow the leader (especially some disgustingly unethical chatrooms where they just buy low float stocks, alert their chat and sell WITHIN SECONDS, guess who makes the money…hint, hint, not the subscribers), I ALWAYS warn people not to follow my alerts or anyone’s alerts for that matter and my top students are actually pretty much dedicated short sellers so while I have been focusing mainly on dip buys lately, they love betting AGAINST the very stocks I am buying! Not necessarily at the exact time of day, but at different times throughout the day and that’s fine by me…we’re all different and whether you prefer buying or shorting, do whatever you’re best at, I just want you to be successful!chatroom (
And the cool thing is that we can both make money on our longs and shorts as these stocks are so volatile they offer several different ideal entry points over the course of their patterns — that’s the beauty of trading the hottest penny stocks, they are so volatile you can make money on the long AND short side as long as you stick to solid patterns like this for dip buying penny stocks and this for short selling penny stocks.
And if you do take the time to learn from my top my top student here has made more than double what I made my first 5 years of trading, while some try to put me down by talking about how my top students are doing better than me, on the contrary, I’m ecstatic as that’s my goal in this teaching business, for every last one of you to do better than me!students and I, key terms like “morning panics”, “dead pump bounce” and “first red day” will become second nature to you and that’s been my goal throughout my teaching; simply to pass down the lessons I had to learn the hard way over the years through trial and error as I NEVER had any mentor and that sucked! Even though I’ve made millions of dollars in trading, I’ve developed many bad habits that limit me to this day and I’m very proud that
After all, I’m FAR from perfect, I’ve lost $180,000 in a day as I wrote about HERE and I lost all my hedge fund industry credibility and personally lost $500,000+ here because back then I didn’t truly understand key penny stock trading rules like these again because I had no mentor and have learned everything through trial and error…and boy do those errors hurt to this day!
And don’t get me wrong either as I haven’t just made financial mistakes, I’ve made mistakes in my teaching approach as I wrote about in this “I Owe You A Giant Apology” blog post and I’m still working on my anger issues as I just the other day too as I explained here:
But only dedicated students see that stuff as outsiders who don’t look at my teachings very often only see my posting pics of cash and cars and exotic travel (ignoring the fact that that stuff is the #1 reason why I have so many successful students as visual motivators are the secret to my teaching success), they never take the time to see videos like this showing that while I only have a few millionaire students so far, I literally have hundreds of students profiting every day from my strategy:
Now I get that selling something like information and experience seems so sketchy, especially in finance as it’s not like selling jewelry, or real estate or apparel or furniture — those are real tangible, physical assets and that the vast majority of people in my “field” are peddling complete bullshit, but I am not…that’s the secret to my teaching success and the beauty of having traded for nearly 20 years now. I’m not some newbie who thinks they’re smart and successful only due to this now nearly-decade-long bull market…when the bear market comes along, newbies and their followers WILL GET CRUSHED and those students will realize their mistake too late, after their account has been decimated due to flawed and non-comprehensive teaching…I actually prefer a bear market since I made my 2nd million dollars in one so that’s when you’ll see my experience really shine…and even in this bear market, I know too many wannabe shorts who claimed I trade too passively and they knew better, only for them to lose 1/2 or 3/4 or even all their money, learning the hard way as I warned, but which they didn’t believe.
Not me and my top watch this video to understand better.students because I trade like a coward and teach others to trade like cowards and am proud of it too because the stock we trade are more than volatile enough to make up for our cowardice and NONE of my top students or I have made our millions through using leverage…
While knowledge can be infinitely more valuable and life-changing, it can also be dangerous when it’s wrong and it’s tough to put an exact price on it. Remember that Internet “gurus” have been abusing people’s trust for years and years now, selling their “expertise” while failing to deliver any results…so while my several millionaire my rule #1 here)students, and dozens of students who have made six-figures already, all in a few years after most people start with just a few thousand dollars in their accounts (think about that for a second, even if they go from $1,500 to $10,000 in a few years that’s MASSIVE success, forget about people like this http://tim.ly/grittani4 who go from $1,500 to $4.3 million in 5 years), not to mention those who haven’t made any money yet, but are well on their way thanks to their dedication to learning, and my now 4,800+ video lesson library help prove how I’m different from the rest, I get that it’s difficult to accept that what I teach is real and useful…especially since this is penny stocks and everyone know someone whose been burned by penny stocks, right? (If they were, they ignored
I must repeat the fact that stuns everyone that even my first millionaire student thought I was full of shit at, read “Timothy Sykes is full of bullship” and look at the comment section to see us going back and forth arguing…and eventually Michael gave me a chance and I’m very thankful because he helped prove that even my biggest hater can become a millionaire with enough effort and dedication…and now he’s also my chatroom moderator and I’m building a school with my charity on his behalf that will be ready in just a few weeks!
My first #millionaire student just passed $2 million in #stocktrading profits so I honored his achievement with a school to be built in his name too! The Michael Goode School is being constructed now thanks to the amazing work of @balichildrensproject and will open this summer/fall in #bali #indonesia right around the same time The Tim Grittani School will also open to honor my 2nd millionaire student @timgrittani too! Only like this photo and leave a comment if you promise to be a dedicated student so when you make seven figures my charity will build a school in your honor too! #surprise #dreamjob #proudteacher #givingback #charity #thetimothysykesfoundation #balichildrensproject #ilovemyjob #edjewcation #hebrewschool
And that blog post/conversation was nearly a decade ago and since then Michael has made $2+ million and you can see EVERY trade here, most of which have been alerted in realtime in the chatroom.
So, no, Michael is not a “paid actor” either, I don’t think any male actor is allowed by SAG to have that much hair, he’d get thrown out of Hollywood before his career even began!
Anyway, I could go on and on about the BS, lies and assumptions my haters make, but as I write this, the stock market is open and I’m looking to trade, even as I made my typical but somewhat disappointing $700 this morning:
…but I’m okay with it because disappointment is part of trading, and more importantly, as I teach $500-$1,000/day keeps the real job away:
…and unlike the many fake Internet gurus, I don’t just create static guides and then do coke in Mexico for a month before creating another guide, on the contrary, AdvilPM is the only drug I use because I need sleep after working so hard day in and day out as I provide daily watchlists, real-time alerts and commentary throughout the day every single da. No matter where I am in the world…and yes, it IS possible to trade and work from a beach or pool whenever I want, I do make more from teaching than trading since I trade with a small account in order to teach and have similar account sizes as my students, 90% of all traders lose ALREADY so education and learning to prepare before every trade can ONLY help. I have no time for personal trading challenges as I already show ALL my trades in realtime every day to my students. I don’t take 2 opposing positions in 2 separate accounts and send a long pick to 1/2 my subscribers and a short pick to the other half (seriously some absolute idiots actually think that’s what I do!). I have no agreements with the main brokers I use and recommend (read this post on the best penny stock brokers and realize I don’t get paid a dime from them as they actually hate me and my approach to trading less, not more), it doesn’t matter what your racial background is as I’m willing to teach EVERYONE, I don’t target caucasians or minorities or males or females all I care about is my students’ dedication and if you’re under 18 you do need parental permission, these affiliates represent a lousy 3% of my teaching business as I don’t run an MLM it’s just a way for students to earn some extra cash if they like my services, my charity is NOT something I make money off of and it’s not just a tax deduction, I actually go visit the communities I donate to, watch:
…and a million other lies I should expose when I have time…in fact, let’s do this, if you want me to make a video addressing ALL the lies I see being spread about me leave a comment under this post and also tweet this blog post out and tag my username @timothysykes so I can see it…if we get 100+ tweets and comments, I’m going to make the most amazing video lesson EVER cutting through ALL the BS out there!
