Stock Trader WARNING: The High-Risk World of Twitter Pumps and Fake Gurus 



Following Twitter pumps and fake gurus is an ultra-high-risk strategy.

It’s crazy the amount of misinformation and lies in this industry. As usual, there are a lot of penny stock promoters. But there are also a lot of newbies teaching…

Everyone Wants to Be a Guru

It’s a weird world we live in where everyone wants to be a guru without first gaining experience. You see it everywhere. From business coaches to now, unfortunately, trading teachers…

Newbie Gurus — The Blind Leading the Blind 

Newbie gurus … they’ve been trading one, two, or maybe three years and think they’re experienced enough to teach. So they post big profit screenshots. And people think that’s what you can make trading.

Heed my warning: newbies are falling prey to newbies who have no business teaching. And the newbie teachers are telling them to use leverage and go all in. Or, as we’ve seen recently, they try to short sell some of these penny stocks with no clue of the risks involved.

Then they realize…

“Wait a minute, these effing newbies are leading us to ruin.”

But they often realize it too late.

Fake Gurus With Big Profit Screenshots

Then you have the fakes. These slimy crooks post screenshots of one trade or one month. They don’t go into the details. You have no idea what they risked on the trade. They don’t show all their accounts. They’re fakes.

You have to be careful of that.

If you’re gonna learn from somebody, make sure they show every single trade. Make sure they show every single detail. You should question it when someone posts a screenshot and says “I made $20K today.”

If I’m trading with a million-dollar account, and I make $20K, I’ve only made 2% on the trade. That sucks. If you have a $4K or $5K account you’re not gonna make enough to justify the trade. Not to mention taking a lot of risk.

Twitter Pumps — Losers Leading Losers 

Then there are the Twitter pumpers. Again, heed my warning. If you don’t, the market will make you pay. It’s your choice.

I know I’m blunt. I purposely swear more on Twitter to rile up promoters and fakes. Since they think I’m emotional it goads them into honesty. (Shhh … don’t tell them I couldn’t care less. I just like getting the truth out of them.) I believe there’s more opportunity for you when you’re real and honest.

All Promotions End Badly

I posted this tweet about promoters on October 1. I’ll give you the general gist of it. But go read the replies — this is what you’re dealing with if you follow promoters and Twitter pumpers.

The replies were almost comical. These morons think a stock up 20,000% is going to the moon. Heed my warning: all pumps look bullish when the promo is on. And they all end badly. Every. Single. One.

Twitter Pumper Admits He’s Poor and a Novice

When you read the replies you’ll see there was a guy calling me a pumper because I post YouTube videos to promote my strategies. And when you look at his tweets you see they’re all promoter tweets.

He took offense to one of my replies in the thread when I mentioned my running joke about promoters needing drugs to do a better job. (Not too much or too little — promoters have to find their happy medium.) So this guy said he didn’t do drugs and “you’re the one selling a technique.” 

Of course I am. My technique is real. I don’t need to pump stocks for my strategies to work because there are enough promoters out there pumping. And I hope they do a good job because it makes me and my top students a lot of money.

My results are not typical. I’ve spent years refining my skills. All my top students report doing the same. Don’t expect consistency until you’ve built your knowledge account and gained experience. 

The funny thing is, in the end, the guy admitted he was poor. He admitted he was a novice. And he even asked for money after I offered to pay for him to attend a Jordan Belfort seminar so he could be a better pumper.

Yes, you read that right. Go read the thread on my Twitter page. I offered to PAY for promoters to learn the salesmanship skills needed to be better pumpers.

Just so we’re clear: I’m not gonna send anybody money. Stock trading is all about education. If you wanna learn to be an actual penny stock trader, come to me. If you wanna be a penny stock promoter go learn from Jordan Belfort.

Duty and HONOR — Teaching Lessons Learned the Hard Way

I’ve been trading for 20+ years. Now, I’ve been teaching for over a decade. And it pisses me off to see these fakes and newbies leading people down the path to blown-up accounts.

Grateful to Be Real in an Industry Full of Fakes

Transparency. That’s what separates me and my top students from fake gurus, Twitter pumpers, and options pushers.

ALL my top students … from Tim Grittani to Dominic Mastromatteo … it’s not just about the money they make. And it’s not about profit screenshots. It’s showing the process. Showing every trade and being real in an industry full of frauds.

Check out this comment from user Ramesh_Kumar to another top student, Jack Kellogg

“Hey jack. I watched your videos last night. Inspired me how you transformed and sticking to your niche. I think I got some perspective on OTCs after watching your videos. Thanks man.”

That’s what our community is about. Being real.

The IPOX® Week, June 1, 2020



  • Everything IPOX records big returns during May as investors flock to the New Generation of stocks.
  • FANG-free, broad-based IPOX 100 U.S. (ETF: FPX) jumps +11.26%. Diversified IPOX International (ETF: FPXI) rises to +14.33% YTD, closes week at fresh all-time high.
  • JDE Peet’s strong Amsterdam debut, ZoomInfo lined up.

Everything IPOX records big returns during May as investors flock to the New Generation of stocks. Amid stable U.S. yields, lower equity risk (VIX: -2.31%), geo-political jitters, declining global anxiety over Covid-19 and the S&P 500 (SPX) zooming through big technical resistance, IPOX finished May with another strong showing, with multiple Indexes closing out the month at or near all-time highs. In the U.S., e.g., the FANG-free, broad-based IPOX 100 U.S. (ETF: FPX) jumped +3.28% last week to gain +11.26% during May, a massive +673 bps. ahead of the S&P 500 (SPX), benchmark for U.S. stocks. The IPOX 100 U.S. (ETF: FPX) also finished out the month by recording its first positive YTD close since Feb. 26, 2020, as late-day positioning amid previously delayed index rebalancing’s propelled IPOX holdings which are typically underrepresented in the benchmarks. 88% of portfolio constituents rose during May, with the equally-weighted average (median) stock adding a massive +13.96% (+11.52%), ahead of the applied market-cap weighted IPOX 100 U.S. (ETF: FPX) and underlying the big strength in small- and mid-cap specialty exposure in light of a good month for the Russell 2000 (RTY), which gained +6.36% to -16.45% YTD.

Diversified IPOX International (ETF: FPXI) rises to +14.33% YTD, closes week at fresh all-time high. Strong IPOX momentum continued to extend to firms domiciled outside the U.S. with the diversified IPOX International (ETF: FPXI) adding +3.35% to +14.33% YTD, its 8th consecutive weekly gain, and up +10.69% for May. All global regions represented in the portfolio drove returns, including China (CNI), Developed Asia-Pacific (IPTA), Europe (IXTE, IPND) and Japan (IPJP). Gains were broad-based across market-cap spectrum and industries, led by Asia-Pacific key tech plays Sea (SE US: +43.58%), Meituan Dianping (3690 HK: +41.33%), Pinduoduo (PDD US: +40.96%), Freee KK (4478 JP: +39.29%) and Mercari (4385 JP: +18.32%), followed by specialty exposure linked to diverse other industries including Danish drug maker Genmab (GMAB US: +25.24%), Brazil Financial XP (XP US: +20.67%) and leading global energy plays Orsted (ORSTED DC: +14.29%) and Saudi Arabian Oil (ARAMCO AB: +4.27%).

Retail Resilience is More than Immediate Recovery—It’s Planning Ahead



One of the many things the current situation has taught businesses worldwide is that in addition to consumer dependency, the supply chain is incredibly fragile. And, a global pandemic that interrupts the proper flow of products today will create a different challenge down the road; one that completely devastates the market. In the immediate post-pandemic landscape, a plan to offload excess inventory that accumulated due to store closures is necessary. But what about the rest of the year?

The ‘What If’ of the Supply Chain

Now more than ever, it’s imperative to have a backup plan for excess stock. This will guarantee that retailers and brands have an inventory management system in play, should usual sales channels be affected. There’s a fine line to walk between meeting consumer demand and accounting for extra—and when something out of the norm affects all the stops involved, an alternative is not only nice to have; it can make the difference between company survival or demise. 

The Clearing of the Warehouse

Trends come and go, as does inventory. How do you make room for new arrivals every season? By clearing out your warehouse—and sustainably, at that. In recent months, partnerships have formed between brands all over the globe that cater to taking care of the planet. There’s a whole market ready to be tapped into—one that supports and contributes to the circular economy that extends the lifecycle of millions of products. We call it the secondary market.

The Model that Supports it All

If the last few years showed an upward trend toward earth-friendly initiatives and the growth of the secondary market, the current landscape has likely shown its necessity. With the world watching and options dwindling, now is the best time to enter this exploding market and take advantage of what it has to offer in terms of recovery, velocity, and sustainability. B-Stock works this way. We help retailers and brands offload their excess inventory via a B2B online auction platform on which thousands of vetted business buyers from all over the world purchase goods. We create these auction marketplaces scaled to each company’s needs, allowing them to set the pace at which they sell, and who they sell to—protecting their brand name. It’s why nine out of the top 10 U.S. retailers are currently using our online auction B2B marketplaces to sell their excess and returned goods.

Learn more about how we’re helping the earth, one item at a time, by checking out our recent Earth Day article. And if you’re ready to take advantage of the secondary market for your overstock, request a demo.

Economic Package Part 2: Quick Takeaways



Hon. Finance Minister announced a series of liquidity measures under Part 2 of Economic Package on 13th May 2020.

The key highlights of Part 2 package are in bold, followed by our opinion:

Upto Rs. 3 Lakh Crore for MSME with Credit Guarantee from Government.

The current outstanding amount of MSME loans is around Rs. 18 Lakh Crore. Other loans against assets excluded. Additional line of Rs. 3 Lakh Crore’s unsecured loans can help the companies restart their business. 45 lakh MSME eligible for this loan facility. These firms employ close to 12 Crore people.

Additional Rs. 20,000 Cr for stressed MSME

Around 2 Lakh MSME are under stress meaning they are either overleveraged or they have delayed interest payments/NPA. This provides relief to banks and NBFC that may have high NPA due to SME.

Liquidity for NBFC

Special liquidity of Rs. 30,000 Cr to NBFC/HFC to all investment-grade paper with a government guarantee. Additionally, another Rs. 45,000 Cr to all NBFC with a partial guarantee by the government up to 20%. Many banking experts believe this could be inadequate.

Many NBFCs lend to last-mile borrowers either in non-traditional segments or remote areas or low rated borrowers. NBFC didn’t have funds to lend, which led to a collapse in demand for end borrowers. Banks were reluctant to lend because of risks in NBFC. Since the government is now offering liquidity and partial guarantee, funds will flow to reasonably good NBFC and hence the end borrower.

Liquidity for Discom with state’s guarantee to borrower

Discoms have Rs. 90,000 Cr in dues towards generation and transmission companies. Relief for generation companies to carry on their business. Many industry experts believe there needs to be reform in the power sector instead of the current stopgap arrangement.

25% cut in TDS, TCS

TDS and TCS cut of 25% on payments for contracts, professional fees, interest, rent, dividend, commission, and brokerage. This provides liquidity to businesses, individuals, and investors. The total expected liquidity in hand will be approx. Rs. 50,000 Cr.

Current measures are mostly liquidity measures and may have temporary relief to restart a business. However, more reforms/stimulus is needed to fix the demand side of the economy which got affected due to i) job losses/salary cuts ii) reluctance to purchases from poor sentiment.

Many of these measures may not have desired implications unless we start seeing economic activity reinstated. Our interpretation of potential benefits is based on the fact that the economy will be reopened in a reasonable time.

We will be hearing series announcements in the coming days. We will be sharing quick takeaways with our interpretation.
