The Press I Got In June/July: WSJ, Gawker, SmartMoney, HuffPo, Portfolio, MSN Money & More

Every now and then the press comes to me to ask for some quotes and despite my devoting my life…literally…to subscribers of my 4 newsletters, I comply because it’s important to get the good word out in an industry full of scum.

In mid-May I posted some of my recent press and I’ve done a few since then…the most important being with SmartMoney on being careful who you trust on the internet when it comes to financial commentary as websites galore will make you think these people are respectable and trustworthy when the liars/cowards are too scared/incompetent to post their ACTUAL performance on sites like Profitly and Covestor (yup, I’m still #1 out of 60,000+ traders over the past 4 years as my Thinkorswim acocunt has increased from $12,415 in Nov. 2007 to $201,000 now, a gain of roughly 1,500%.

Here’s my quote:

Some more unscrupulous or even mainstream sites may use sensational headlines to attract readers and — as a result — lead to unwise investment decisions by smaller, less-savvy investors, says Andy Nyquist, an active investor based in Minneapolis, Minn. On top of that, the sites typically summarize or use portions of the reports, and those snapshots may not always be wholly accurate, says Timothy Sykes, a short-seller and blogger whose site,, reviews financial websites, bloggers and newsletters. The sites are primarily out for the traffic, says Sykes. “Everyone wants the most twitter followers and biggest RSS feed users.”

Another danger, says Sykes, is that it’s hard to know what qualifies many of the writers and bloggers who report or republish such research. “You don’t know whether a writer or blogger is a multi-million dollar hedge fund manager or some guy living in his mom’s basement,” he says.

Hey Everyone,

As many of you already know I grew up in a middle class family and didn't have many luxuries. But through trading I was able to change my circumstances --not just for me -- but for my parents as well. I now want to help you and thousands of other people from all around the world achieve similar results!

Which is why I've launched my millionaire challenge. I’m extremely determined to create a millionaire trader out of one my students and hopefully it will be you.

So when you get a chance make sure you check it out.

PS: Don't forget to check out my free Penny Stock Guide, it will teach you everything you need to know about trading. :)

    Hi Tim and TROOPS,

    I am a stroke survivor, 49 yr old single mother of two teenage girls.  I have been slithering into day trading, ….my first trade being the infamous penny stock OPGM which I bought at .04 and sold at .0803……giving me $1588.00  profit. I only sold half my stock and am keeping the rest of the shares for the release date of the Apple Iphone.  That was my very first trade.  Since then, thru confusion with timing and hitting the wrong keys in a panic to do the trading, I have made some costly mistakes.  My brother who has been doing this for years now has loads of advice but want to learn from someone who I can to trust.  I have never heard of you and just watched your video   (#2).  I NEED an HONEST PERSON or nothing at all.  I used to sit and do nothing all day as I don’t work anymore and penny stocks are interesting and exciting to me.  I want to become a GOOD yet WISE investor. 
    Well, that’s my story.  I may hear back from you….I may not.  I am hoping I will.  I need a mentor and am eager to learn and be the best I can be for my family.  As I am now, I feel like my life is wasting away and I have so much more to give.

    Thanks for reading and have a peaceful night.
