Where My Subscribers Can Post ALL Their Gains/Losses Honestly - Timothy Sykes

Where My Subscribers Can Post ALL Their Gains/Losses Honestly

Know how I’m always preaching and yelling that people should be more transparent with the posting of ALL their gains/losses? After all, gains are fun to keep track of and losses serve to help EVERYONE learn so it’s a clear win/win…

The problem is 90%+ of traders lose money and yet 90% of those who post on financial message boards and websites claim to be profitable.

Why the disconnect?


But considering I once turned $12k into $2 million in 4 years, have now detailed in 2,000+ blog posts over the past 2.5 years how I’ve grown my $12,415 Thinkorswim account into $125,000, solidifying my position as the #1 ranked trader out of 45,000+ on Covestor, the only website that verifies all trades/account performance, academic studies have shown how I have won 75% of the time on my trades (although according to the penny stock regulation impaired SEC past performance is not indicative of future returns) and perhaps most importantly, I lay out every last detail of my proven trading strategy in 10 instructional DVD packages and 4 newsletters, I gotta believe when my TIMalert subscribers and PennyStocking Silver subscribers publicly post $1.1+ million in gains in 2009, I gotta believe my subscribers have followed my lead and learned to tell the truth and nothing but.

When I don’t get behind (as happens sometimes…especially lately), you can see all my profits/losses on timothysykes.com/tim (my mom knew what I was destined to do so she named me TIM, which is short for Transparent Investment Management)…and always on the right hand side of this site (that’s far easier to update) and I created Investimonials.com to allow both monthly and annual TIMalert subscribers to leave their honest reviews of my 4 newseltters (you can see dozens upon dozens of reviews HERE and HERE)

Long story short, I want ALL of my subscribers to post their daily gains/losses in the comments section of this post….if all goes well, it’ll get to be one giant list of transparency….please bookmark this post and share your daily results openly and honestly…if you’re embarrassed or introverted, feel free to use a screen name, the key to this idea’s success is simple sharing your trading results accurately.

    Here, I’ll start and show you 2 formats you can use:

    Locked in profits of $2,384 shorting ABIO at 5.20 on Thursday’s afternoon fade and covering this morning at 4.86 when there was no morning panic.


    +2384 on ABIO, shorted 7k at 5.20, covered at 4.86, thanks Tim’s awesome strategy!

    TOTAL GAINS as of 4/5/10 since 3/9/10 inception of 10000 dollar Sogotrade account:

    $2,843. Breakdown as follows:

    4/5-NANX: SHORT: In at 1.96, out at 1.68 = 280 on 1000 shares after second morning drop.
    4/1-AEN: SHORT In at 2.07, out at 1.61 = 690 on 1500 shares after classic morning plunge. Should have made over 1000, but got to take profits and protect small account.
    3/30-ENCO: SHORT In at 4.06, out at 3.45 = 610 on 1000 shares. Covered too early as there was no sign of a spike, but being extra conservative.
    3/29-ABIO: SHORT at 5.92, covered at 5.69 = 230 on 1000 shares. Broke 6 convincingly on vol, but worried about a spike after stalling a little in the 5.60s.
    3/26-SSY: SHORT at 3.53, covered at 3.50 = 30 on 1000 shares. A little late to this one, and it was struggling to break away from 3.50, and showing signs of a volume spike. Lots of bidders.
    3/25-SSY: LONG at 3.57, sold at 3.53 = 40 LOSS. Looking for another spike, but up volume was dying, and did not feel good about the trade. Should have taken profits at 3.80 when volume was dying. Lesson learned.
    3/24-MSEH: SHORT at 3.4225, covered at 2.96 = 463. Nailed the top, but got too edgy during a minor spike back toward 3. Had collapse written all over it, but covered anyway. Should have been close to 1k.

    TOTAL GAIN since 3/24/10 = 2263 in new Sogotrade started with 10000 on 3/9/10

    Trades before 3/24/10:
    3/23-JOEZ: LONG at 2.7306, sold at 2.75 = 19 on 1000 shares. Keep thinking this will break 3. Failed again.
    3/18-CNAM: SHORT at 7.21, covered at 7.13 = 40 on 500 shares. This was not a smart trade. It bounced off of 7 a few times. Not many sellers left. Vulnerable to spike. Amateur mistake.
    3/16-JOEZ: LONG at 2.7499, sold at 2.6101 = 139 LOSS on 1000 shares. Looking for a gap/breakout and stubbornly held when it failed. Got to cut losses or take small gains as soon as it doesn’t act the way you thought.
    3/12-IPCI: LONG at 3.85, sold at 4.10 = 250 on 1000 shares. This was purely a scalp trade on obvious momentum, but dangerous as it had already spiked significantly. Although I made money here, this is a GLARING example of how traders lose money.
    3/12-ZANE: LONG at 3.18, sold at 3.19 = 10 on 1000 shares. Spike failed again. TAKE PROFITS!
    3/11-ZANE: SHORT at 3.17, covered at 2.77 = 400 on 1000 shares. Great trade for my first short in this new 10000 dollar account as I covered right when the spikes were gathering steam.

    TOTAL GAIN 3/9/10 – 3/23/10 = 580 on new Sogotrade 10000 dollar account

    Might I suggest a better website for tracking something as extensive as subscribers’ daily p/l? Commenting on a blog post, after a few days, will likely get tedious. Perhaps a new website designed in spreadsheet format, or something like StockTickr, Google Spreadsheets, a Zoho collaborative document, etc.

    Lost $1200 holding 2K ZANE short overnight. Lucky I had a stop loss set, or the loss could have been three times as bad when I overslept and didn’t get into the market until 10 minutes after open.

    Have u guys heard of stop losses..i see losses in -2k..-3k..-5k..wtf??!!!! are all of u guys made of $$$$…or are u using the hoping/praying method?

  22. Scott_W

    I think a lot of those may have been on the ZANE long o/n and they didn’t have accounts that could trade after hours. Ouch! That’s one of the things about SogoTrade that makes me nervous holding o/n sometimes.

    Lost $147 on my overnight 1800 shr short or ENCO reducing my overall gain to $887. It was a dumb trade. Nailed the absolute bottom of $4.07 at 3:30pm (why not just wait until 3:59 right)and just watched it climb from there. Luckily a little a.m. sell off got me back to $4.15 to cover. A little early obviously since I just saw my price of $4.07 go by. I assumed an a.m. selloff which kinda happened, but my entry was rookie bad.

  58. nil

    Lost 8000 by following TimAlert this week on Enco. And also because Tim came and talked of DEAR in his chat room while we subscribers were away from the chat room.

    Also, because by the time I was able to get the shares Tim got, it was too late.

    Somehow XYZ (you know who) was able to buy /sell shares according to Tim’s alert before we general subscribers. I still will stay with your alert because do not want to go against you (tim inc). and yes I am already paid. So still will stay for another 2 weeks.

    Anyhow, lost a lot. And yes wondering where to pay my rent now. Thanks Tim for such alerts where WE can find no stocks to short either at TOS or Sogo and your email alerts come later than your alerts by someone on your chatroom. Great job!

    how exactly did u lose $8k on ENCO? curious considering I said it was a short but watch out for big spikes…after the firt big spike, i said, it has now flipped to a buy…only an illiterate fool who doesnt pay attention loses $ on that…DEAR is not a chatroom play, it was a watchlist play, i said premarket to watch it all day for a breakout above 3.30ish, late day it happened so i piggybacked some big buying, again your fault for not knowing the patterns.

    might as well cancel now because i wont stand for idiots blaming me when i lay EVERYTHING out there

  62. Nil

    Possibly on April 22nd you came to your chat room and said DEAR is not a good play to short. Well, on on your TimAlert email of April 21st there was no mention of DEAR

    As soon as you said so iin your chat room, the stock spiked forcing many short to cover and many of your subscribers to cover. yes , DEAR was not on your TimAlert list of April 21st. And yes you “might” have just caused the spike. No, I was not the one who lost then. I lost later.

    So in essence a few of your subcribers got to hear you from your chat room. And the rest just waited.

    You flipfloped on ENCO.

    On one email you said ENCO is a “possible” short . So, mant of your subscribers including me had huge interest (compared to my savings and portfolio) in it. I trusted whatever you say in your email is accurate. NEver I realized that you might just be assuming in every sentence you sent in your email.

    BY the way, how much are you earning? I checked with Covester (CVIM) representative. They were prompt enough to tell me that you had NEGATIVE earnings in many of the months you were with them

    Anyone who wish to check these out can basically check at CVIM.

    Yes you did make some huge gain once. But now, you are still making loss. If not, then CVIM is a huge liar which I do not think they are. Their website lists that you made losses recently even.

    So, are we (your subcribers) going to believe the numbers listed in CVIM or in your website. You might just as well be lying. You just have to pick up your CVIM and make sure that has some gains too.

    Buddy, I admire your skills . But I really wish you were a little more clear of what you say.

    And listing others gain in every email is a nonsense. We rather hear more of why you picked each and every stock in your TimAlert so we can also check up your sources.

    Thanks and God Bless. May you earn some money and may all your subscriber get the TimAlert on exactly the same instance. I have seen that Reaper gets your notices of short/buy stockks earlier than anyone does. I wonder how?

    ALso, I noticed that once you realease your actual short/long call during the day, the stock right away(within 1 sec or so) most time spikes or dumps. It happend with DEAR last time.

    I am still short on DEAR. Would love to see how much it goes.

  63. thedave2006

    20K to 65K to 18-20K port size before and after Bre-X. To 125K and back to 100K during tech bubble now to 400K to 100K to 400K in resource boom and bust and during financial collapse.
    Resources is the game….looking to go to 500K+ one day and maybe a million, well at least I see 1million+ is totals traded. Fun!!!!!!!!

    Hey moron, of course I flip flop, I’m a trader…it’s YOUR fault for not understanding how I trade..I made a friggin video for PennyStocking Silver subscribers 2 days before I bought DEAR saying it was a potential buy…its earnings and chart pattern made it a potential buy….I did not create the DEAR spike, its called a technical breakout in a highly shorted stock, as I pointed out in my premarket watchlist that is when I said I would buy….gotta learn to read man

    ENCO was a potential short now its a potential buy, gotta adapt to price action…you wanna trade based on my words, don’t, all my trades and lessons are to help you become self-sufficient, it’s our fault for not understanding this as i’ve said it a hundred times…especially on my dvds which i’m guessing based on your pathetic trading, you’ve ignored

    Bring up CVIM, shows you don’t pay any attention to what say, as I’ve explained dozens of times, its not working great because IB hasnt had the shares to short lately, Sogotrade has….look at my CVIM numbers, still up nicely if not hugely.

    Reaper doesnt get anything faster than anybody else, people like you are just too stupid somehow…

    Blaming me for your own incompetence/ignorance is a waste of my precious time, I encourage you to watch my dvds before trading so you dont get squeezed and come up with ridiculous conspiracy theories

    DEAR was a great buy. Interesting to see where it opens Monday.

    ENCO is too choppy to short imo.

    Tim outlines this buy, buying in late afternoons, 3:30-3:45pm in his Pennystocking 2 DVD. DEAR was basing at about $3.45 all afternoon, and a few mins before Tim’s buy it might have broken down, but it didn’t, it rebounded, and it seem like that’s when Tim bought it.

    I shorted DEAR on the morning spike in the 3.15s, on the first 100% day, again, not a great short, and now thinking about it, kind of dumb if I’m shooting to be a 3R trader. I should have covered later when DEAR was in the 2.80s for a nice 7% jackal gain. Instead I was stupid, and greedy, and held.

    The stock spiked to 3.40s, and yesterday, when Tim bought it.. it was basing at 3.45ish.. again.. that first spike indicating safety zone of resistance.. resistance becoming support etc. If things got bad Tim could have cut losses quickly at low 3.40s, only risking like 4 cents.

    FORTUNATELY, more like luck, there was just profit taking by 3:45pm, and the stock tanked into the 2.50s and slightly rebounded in the close (Also.. a good buy), ending a 70%+ day (similar to RHIE, also turnning out to be a good buy, but a different play since it was a drug company), on positive news and earnings. Again, a good buy, and the pullback makes it easier for the stock to have another 20% gain.

    If after hours into the 2.80s. (Again, don’t know how meaningful a/h play is.. b/c the stock opened in the 2.50s really, I bet it was short covering).

    It opened the next day in the 2.60s, surged to 2.90s (~15% gain) on the morning spike, the touched a lower low in the 2.50s again.. BASING PERFECTLY. And now.. 2.50s is Resistance, and exactly 2.58ish. Some other trader in Tim Alerts chat, bought the stock on the run-up back into the 3s for 3.5k gain. GREAT BUY

    The time to cover was then.. I covered in the 2.60s for a nice gain. Overall the short was bad to begin with really, and Tim was right. Even though I made over 1k shorting, it surged for a moment into the 3.40s, and I could have lost even more.. this was not a 3R trade.

    Take a look at ROHI, perfect chart, up on no news, and speculation. And a BB stock. I’m waiting for the first red day. And i love how it closed strongly into the close.

    Also look at ANTF, a poker company merging with an oil and gas exploration company. This stock is now closing at RSI above 95, the only stock in the market to do so. I’m also waiting for the first down day.

    I’m not used to playing BB stocks, so I’ll stand back a little more in the future, unless it is a straight up pump, like NXTH, or BGBR (did not trade this).

    In either case.. this is not Tim’s or anyone’s fault. The fact is.. you should ALWAYS cut losses quickly, even if you have less that 25k, you need to use your daytrades, that’s what they’re there for.

    An 8k loss is NEVER acceptable, unless your account is huge. Just cut the loss quickly, there always more trades.

    Over the past 10 years, I bet there has been 500 supernovas.

    One last comment is.. yeah the DEAR spike was odd, as soon as Tim buys it.. it surged basically immediately. If you look at the volume, yes 7k was a lot of shares for that stock in the afternoon, but a LOT of shorts are in DEAR, 10% of float according the shortsqueeze. DEAR trade is just too crowded now. Tim says he doesn’t influence trades, but he’s got 1500 subs, and a lot of people listen to him, so.. it’s hard to say, and he has autotrading from covestor, which is typically a few mins slow from what I have heard. To say he doesn’t’ have influence is not true, but.. on high money volume stocks like RPC, when he executed trades, the stock didn’t budge.

    And the only time to even short that stock was on the failed spike on the 100% day in the afternoon in the 3.30s (after seeing it fade off the 3.40s). Highlight is 20/20.

    good post but this wsnt an autotrade stock (marketcap is too low)…i waited patiently all day for DEAr to show signs of fading/breakout…the few minutes before i bought (put in an order of 9k, only got 7k before it spiked to 3.50)), there was a fakeout breakdown then a volume surge, thats what told me it could really spike

  67. Baron

    Yeah, excellent buy. Wish I was watching it, instead I was watching ANTF. I have to get better at watching more stocks at once.

    And I missed the ROHI morning spike. So I played terribly on both.

    Also ANTF was a morning fakeout, first time I’ve experienced that, which is another good reason to never short in the morning when the stock is running up, and to wait for the red day.

    I was looking at how to buy breakouts more, b/c obviously it is ‘easier’, b/c you don’t have to go through hoops w/ shorting shares through your broker, you can just straight up buy the stock. I’ll be trying to look for buying more, like I did w/ RHIE at the close when it was up 60%+, b/c I thought the hype was there. The stock surged +40% the next day, I sold into the spike.

    I was looking at the ZANE intraday chart when it surged from like 30 cents to 60, then back to 40 cents, the broke out at 11am at $0.63, already traded float, early in the day, the stock DOUBLED to 1.20. Another great buy, even though the stock is a scam. The illusion becomes real.

    DEAR is even better b/c it is an positive earnings play. I should have bought at support of 2.60s right as I covered, looking back on it, after it restested the low and bounced. And just cut losses at 2.58, risk only a dime, max, when the stock has already gone to 3.40 the previous day on positive earnings.

    You point out some earnings plays in your DVDs, and you pretty much should wait for a red day b/c the runup can go must farther even though it is a gap, and there probably will be a fade, but it might take a month to breakdown, not worth the time value.

    I don’t even know why you would hold a short on ENCO more than a day, since the stock is a microfloat of like 1 million shares, and the stock has a history of spiking, and being choppy. How or why you would wait to lose 8k on ENCO is a lot of Tim of DVDs, and trading books to learn to always cut losses quickly. 5% max or 7% (or 20-40 cents) max, and use the daytrade, re-enter the short at the higher price, or later on in the day on a fade or spike top. Or better yet, wait for the next RPC or BGBR or NXTH.

    DEAR – $500 profit. Please Tim. Find shares like this that we can go long on. Sold too early at 4.43. Well in last 1 year I have learnt that do not be greedy. And small profits a day makes a large win at the end of the year. So 500 for me is my first profit hearing TimAlerts. Wish same goes next time.

    +$350 o/n on 2400 ROHI on Tims alert. I got in sorta lowish w/ a $3.12 avg. (Have I mentioned how much I despise limit orders?) and when I didn’t see the big a.m. dropoff start I covered at $2.97. Before Tim, but somehow at a higher price. Like Tim…WAAAAY too soon obviously. Congrats to the rest of you with much larger stones today.

    Drat, when the mkt reversed a little I got scared and covered my 250 shares of ASFN at 4.38 (from 4.75) instead of holding on as the price reversed. Left $350 on the table but that’s alright because I based my decision on price action, not wishful thinking.

    Still made $93, and I’m sitting on unrealized ROHI & FTBK gains of over $500.

    The gains are great but mostly I’m happy because I’m starting to recognize the patterns Tim teaches. Just need to trust what I’m seeing a little more. Thanks Tim!

    Profit: $1200 on DNDN usin 10 calls and 300 stocks. AT one point I was up almost 2400$. But I forgot the number one rule, DO not be greedy. I will remember it next time.

    This week I am up about $1600. I could have been up about $2900. My target is $500-$2500/week profit for next two years so I can buy a very small apartment

    Started this little experiment with $10,000 in the fall. Currently I’m at $8400. I was as low as $5000 because of two very poor trades that still hurt! The good news is that since Christmas I’ve been conservatively working my way back up, when I get back to $10,000 I will be psyched!

    This week was my best ever: No losers. $107 on ROHI, $615 on ENCO- held on for bigger profits there- it went well. $495 on DEAR and today $264 on APPY less $20 in comissions up $1462 for the week. Hopefully next week will be 1/4 as good- I’ll be thrilled if it is!
