Summary

Tommy actually provides a pretty lively and interesting market commentary. The only problem is that he is not trading, just talking about trading. Truly wish I were wrong, because I really like Tommy, but at the end of the day I cannot endorse the product.

Pros: Tommy actually does a good job of entertaining. And he really sounds like he knows what he is talking about.
Cons: Tommy does not trade. Period. I recorded our telephone conversation and was honest in telling me that he is old providing market commentary and entertainment. This is a real problem for anyone that is actually trading and attempting to make a living at this difficult game.

View My Trades-The review I didn’t want to write.

Some trading reviews are just plain difficult to write. Not everything is simply cut and dried, black or white.. Scam, or no scam. Telling the story of View My Trades wont be easy because the owner is such a nice guy. The guy that owns the trading room is named Tommy. He is a nice person.  And both of us have had nice long conversations about some of the worst of the worst trading rooms available on the internet. Tommy genuinely is disgusted by some of the hustlers that pray upon newbie traders. And he wants View My Trades to be a great service to traders. Keep reading to find out what you will like, and most importantly what you will not like.

What you will like about View My Trades

Undoubtedly the best thing about view my trades is the blaring transparency of trading results. All over the web pages of View My Trades, you will find an extensive list of trades called live in the trading room. Row upon row, you will see an impressive string of positive results. No, the results are not super awesome with incredibly huge winners. Rather, its the consistency of the positive results that make you feel warm and comfortable. You are left with the feeling that finally you have found someone that can help me get consistently profitable with your trading. Perhaps you can quit that day job after all. Perhaps there is a future for you in trading. Perhaps, until you learn how to trade on you own, you can simply copy Tommy’s trades and earn a small living. Wouldn’t it be great to have a couple of positive months in a row? Wouldn’t it be nice to show the wife, finally, that your trading has turned a corner?

What you will not like about View My Trades

There are three things actually.

  1. Every night Tommy sends out an alert to either buy or sell the market a predetermined level. Included with the level is the stop and target. However, the level is not really a level, instead he give you a range to enter the trade. The problem is glaringly obvious to an experienced trader. But hidden and deceitful to the novice. The problem is that Tommy reports each trade with the BEST case scenario, which assumed he was actually able to get filled at a limit price, and exit with a limit price. The whole thing is pure fantasy.

  2. The second thing you will not like is that there is no set structure to Tommy’s trading. He flies by the seat of his pants. In his trading room, he calls out “bounce points” that he is thinking about entering at. No explanations of what bounce points are, just levels he feels where the market will bounce. Sometimes it bounces, sometimes it slices through like a hot knife through butter. No explanations for you! If you took the “bounce points” and it bounced then good for you. If not, well then you are screwed mightily. When Tommy gets really going he will get excited and make a call like, “OK, THIS IS IT, I AM IN!” It happens lightening fast and he always, always always gets his limit price, while the rest of us sit there scratching our balls.

  3. Tommy doesn’t trade. At the end of the trading week, I chatted with him and kindly asked him if he would send me over a screen shot of his fills. I wanted to see if what I suspected was true. Tommy asked me to call him personally and that we should talk over the phone. I called Tommy and as usual we had a cordial and fun conversation, I asked for that screen shot. He responded that he doesn’t actually trade, rather he considers himself a market commentator providing entertainment.

Providing Entertainment?

“A market commentator providing entertainment”. It just stuck in my ear and refused to move. It then crawled down into my t shirt and began rubbing my nipples, not in a fun way. It crept down into my underwear and cozied up. And it drove me freaking crazy with irritation. Imagine how a person would feel if they saved up $5k and then opened a brokerage account, not knowing much and actually attempted to make a living from a “Market Commentator providing entertainment”. People with real money on the line are taking advise from a person who does not even trade. This is just crazy to me. What’s worse is that anyone attempting to copy Tommy’s trades will be stuck in a hopeless cycle of catch up, with no hope of replication. If a person were crazy enough to attempt to replicate Tommy, at the end of two months, the trading account would be close to zero while Tommy’s fantasy track record of trades would continue to show a slow and steady increase. Sad stuff folks.

My advise to Tommy.

View My Trades ReviewTommy, if you are reading this, you are a nice guy. I really enjoy our conversations and I feel that you care about people, but you very much remind me of my alcoholic father, Emmett Sr., who lived his life in denial and personal deceit. My father spent the first 25 years of my life as a functional alcoholic. He could work during the day, but needed to be drunk by bed, just to cope. My mother pleaded with him to stop, the alcohol was destroying our family. But my father refused to believe that he was an alcoholic because he continued to function by day. Eventually my mother had enough and ended the marriage. It was painful for all. Mom and us kids grew up healthy and free from the angry tirades of a drunk, while my father continued a life of extreme isolation, but moderate business success. However, as with all alcoholic’s, the lies and destruction of alcoholism destroyed my father. At the age of 62 my father was arrested for his 4th DUI which carried a one year mandatory sentence. It took him a long, long time time before he finally came to the truth of his personal deceit. Tommy, your problem is that of personal deceit, you are not really trading and yet you truly believe you are giving something of value to folks. You despise the conman, yet you do not even realize that you have become the very thing you despise most. Perhaps nobody has told you, but I will do it now.

Hey Tommy, whats happened? I see you’ve closed up shop. I take it you’ve now comfortably retired before hitting 40 due to those miraculous bounce points!? Somehow I doubt it, and look forward to you popping up somewhere in the dark world of trading chat rooms soon

VMT is back after a long summer break. Update – Tommy has slimmed down the membership options from 7 to 3. Now the room focusses solely on the ‘Bounce points’ . Email alert has been scrapped. Get this – He has reduced the trade room days to 3 a week BUT increased the price to an eye watering $750 a month. Oh – and forget anymore free trials – its now $100 for a (three day) week to have a peek.

So the first struggle is to make the $750 back during the 12 days of trading each month. As previously stated here, he can’t be followed using real money. He does SIM trading and Market if Touched.

I am a old client of Tommy email alert for 2 months.
I think he is honest, sympathetic men but I am really surprised to learn that not even its own trade signals: s I understand better now!

I am French / Swiss
I speak bad English, sorry

Concerning my subscription at Tommy, the result table is fair, but impractical. I also have a small capital. It would open a trade at the start (stop 2.15) and another in the middle of the box. (Stop 1.5)

Also I absolutely agree with the reasoning and stop 2pts +

I wanted to return home, but after reading this article I will look elsewhere, not that Tommy is a scam, but it is too difficult for me to follow it precisely. And made it not trade itself leaves me speechless.

be an analyst and trader to be real, it’s totally different. And for proof I was losing while Tommy recorded a gain for the month or I was client. It is very complex for me to follow him, because you never know when it close the trade, to the BE etc!

I prefer to find a real trader trades are possible. This is disappointing, since 2010, I have not found any serious seller!

In short, for one that has a large trade capital and already a little, Tommy can be a good solution. Otherwise, not for beginners

I will start by clearly stating they are a solid online educator, trading room and not a scam. I have been a member off and on for about 3 years as my work allows. I travel a lot and Tommy has been very cool with me letting me start and stop and providing for future credit. The things I see as being very good with their site is that they do not BS people and they do not play games. When you are in the trading room you clearly know what is being said and what they are planning to do at all times. There is no fuzzy talk allowing for the trader to worm his way in or out of a winning or losing call. They are very thorough and repeat things many times so everyone knows what is happening and more importantly when it is happening. As for other offerings, I took some training with Tommy for some problems with my stops. It was not a formal offering but about 90 minutes of personalized help and I benefited a lot from it. Not expensive and well worth the coin I paid. That is the good stuff and I only have a few small vents on things that could be better. He only shows 3 charts in the room and does not show the indicators they have. I think it would be very beneficial to see all his charts he uses and to show the indicators. It can be frustrating not knowing ” the why” for entering and exiting a trade and he and I have spoken about this. That is really the only 2 things I would like to see done differently. Overall I think they are really solid as I said at the start of the review. I am grateful for what I have learned and what presumably I will continue to learn i the future. And guess what? — I am trading mostly profitable at about 70%. Happy camper here.

Hey Stray Dog, the guy that hides behind a stupid name….just because you or anyone else demands to see a brokerage statement from a business does not mean you are entitled to getting that personal information. And because a business does not cave to those demands does not make it a scam. The arrogance of some, including you, demanding we change, alter and delete or add certain aspects of our business model to suit your opinions of what our business should be is outrageous. Go start your own trade room and run it how you think it should be done and stop trolling us. Again the stray dog, nameless guy has never been a member and never taken a free trial. I guess like some of us have hobbies like playing gold for enjoyment he a few other enjoy posting negatives reviews over and over again. Move on,

Your business model says, “We will never show proof we can trade profitable as we claim we do”. Interesting business model.

Do you read what you write? Really!

“just because you or anyone else demands to see a brokerage statement from a business does not mean you are entitled to getting that personal information”

That statement is mind blowing and no honest business would refuse to show proof they can do what they claim they can do.

Could you imagine hiring someone to build a house for you and you ask to see their license and see some other homes they built and the said;

“just because you or anyone else demands to see my license or proof I actually built a home does not mean you are entitled to getting that personal information”

I will actually agree 100% with you. You do not have to show proof you can actual trade profitable. But I think this speaks volumes about your business. And my advice is still if he refuses to show any evidence he can trade profitably, why would you pay a dime to this person.

That’s like demanding from your account he show you his tax returns to prove he got money back for himself. Anyone reading this might note there are 2 people who can never stop the negative reviews, neither of whom have ever taken a free trial and nor have been a member, or maybe it is one person posing as 2. As for you Emmett, you love to chime in here and there. You you self are so misleading. You are a convicted felon that seems almost to brag of his crimes in your post about your own history. Your promised me many times to re-write your blog post as 3 stars saying your whole gripe was we did not show a dome and that you used a entertaining review and description of us because that was good for your blog. You of course never followed through with what you said. All you do I try to damage a business as one person’s opinion and have the google search show 1.5 stars and not the 3.6 all the users rated us. VERY misleading Emmett and you are NOT a man of your word. You do not do what you say you will do.

Like so many other people running a con game in this industry you are comparing apple and oranges. Every business has its own litmus test. For someone to do your taxes I would tell someone the Litmus test is that person should be a Licensed CPA or Licensed Tax Prepare. In fact the IRS is making new tougher rules on anyone preparing another person’s taxes.

https://www.irs.gov/uac/irs-proposes-new-registration-testing-and-continuing-education-requirements-for-tax-return-preparers-not-already-subject-to-oversight

But for the trading industry I say the Litmus test is you have to show proof you can trade profitably. Remember unlike mutual funds and etc. this industry is unregulated and unlicensed. If it was regulated my guess is you would absolutely have to have evidence to back up your claims.

Now you may not agree with the Litmus test, that is fine. You have made your argument many times that you do not have to show any proof what so ever you can trade profitable. Gosh for me I do not even hire someone to cut my grass unless I know he cut other peoples yard and I see the work he has done.

I seriously doubt you would use your own logic on any unlicensed unregulated business you hire.

Personally I think that speaks volumes about your business. Any honest business would be more than happy to show proof of their past performance.

To me it is obvious you do not trade live and you cannot trade profitably.

You do not have to agree, but I advice anyone that wants to become a profitable trader not go to some unlicensed unregulated educator that refuses to show any proof what so ever they can trader profitably. It really is that simple.

And for my part as long as you do not continue to post glowing review under alias without showing any proof to back up those glowing review, I will not post a rebuttal.

The people have heard all sides, let them decide for themselves.

Hey Tommy. What kind of name is Tommy for a grown man? Fortunately my name is a pseudonym and I’m not stuck with it in real life.
You are mistaken. If you are selling a product based on your ability to trade or to teach trading then people have the right to demand to see proof that you can trade profitably. Refusing to show this proof, in the form of brokerage statements, screams scam. If you are so worried about your personal information contact Emmett and get the robot but you won’t do that because that would expose the truth.

Funny how you and they all know as a fact I do not trade because I do not send personal brokerage statements to strangers on the internet. What normal person trolls blogs and posts endless negative reviews for weeks upon weeks for a business for which they have never been a customer and hide behind fake names. This is the typical internet lies, slander and garbage at its best.

For those day trading futures that only care about win ratios and timeliness of the trading room calls your room is outstanding. Keep doing what you are doing my friend.

“If some people want proof of brokerage statements and you choose not to provide them then Viewmytrades.com is not for them. End of story period.” Yes if you are one of those “Haters” who has the audacity to ask for proof, from the person who is selling you his or her product, that it works then it’s not for you. Obviously asking for proof in the viewmytrades world is unreasonable and there is something wrong with you for expecting that it should be forthcoming.

Please explain Chuck how this live trade room recording from today is BS or how it is a scam? As always we call everything out before it happens. Every single person can and does get a fill. We deduct for scaling, trailing stops and reduced position sizing and the spread on both entry and exit when we record accurate results every day, Oh but wait that is all a scam and BS per 2 – 3 on this blog people that have never been in our trade room. See live trade room video from 5/19/16 and if you cannot follow that go back to school. https://youtu.be/_VYAWtkyJW0

“We deduct for scaling, trailing stops and reduced position sizing and the spread on both entry and exit when we record accurate results every day, …”

Finally confirming that you did not take an actual trade: you are reporting hypothetical entries and exits for the trades called. What makes that obvious? If you took the trade, the trade record speaks for itself as to all prices, so there should not be any need to deduct anything for any reason. The price of entry is the price of entry, and the price of exit is the price of exit: no need to deduct anything.

You should have quit when you were thinking that you were ahead. Now you have yourself finally given the proof that there was no actual trade. That is why you are deducting crap in an attempt to create what you think is a fair report.

Next time you try to pull this one, remember that: “It is better to be silent and thought of as ignorant, that to open your mouth and remove all doubt.”

Okisani another fake name of someone that has never been in our trade room, but bashes a company while hiding behind a keyboard. Same person above with a new name. People do not join a trade room because the moderator shows a DOM or posts a brokerage statement on a blog like this filled with fake internet trolls. They join a trade room and stay in a trade room if the trading calls are made clearly and in advance and can be profitably duplicated whether the moderator takes and trade or not. I wonder why so many of our members have been with us for years? Because they can follow our calls and they work. We have never claimed we take every trade we call out and we state that on our website. That also does not mean we do not take any trades either.

So we’ve had the “We won’t show you our trading statements because we don’t want to release personal information” excuse. The “Our business plan doesn’t allow us to share that information” excuse, that was a good one. Now it’s the “We never said we take all the trades we call, but we do trade some of them” excuse. Tommy, redacted brokerage statements or get Emmett’s robot. If not that then I suggest you let this thread die quietly.

I do not need to become a victim of your scam by becoming your client before I can comment on your obvious mistake when you claim to be deducting ticks. Now I see that you are attempting to backtrack. Again, no need to deduct anything from the trading record, as a REAL trading record is a record of actual prices paid, so there is no need to deduct anything.

Your expecting me to come into your room where you are calling trades that you are not taking is like expecting me to take your armchair quarterbacking instructions that you give me while I am plumbing my new swimming pool, based only on your assertion that you are an expert plumber, who refused to provide any evidence of any plumbing ability when asked and who instead keeps insisting the I follow those instructions before I can tell that they are bunkum.

You may be fooling a lot of people. It must hurt so badly when the folks on here see through your chicanery and call you out.

Finally, your stupidity shows when you assert that I am not using my real name. How do you know that?

Even then, that does not matter. Exposing your shenanigans does not require one to reveal who they are. You are not trading, and you have just admitted it. Claiming to trade only SOME of your calls is beyond ridiculous, when you are claiming to be demonstrating (I presume) and teaching how to take trades. Are you also telling the room which trades not to take?

I suppose the trades that you do not take are the ones that lose, and the ones that you take are all winners. You are worse than Bernie Madoff, you charlatan.

OKI I did not say I do not take any trades I said I do not take every trade. My risk management plan dictates what I take when and how. When you run a trade room, which you obviously know nothing about, you set up it up to appeal to a broad range of traders from intra-day swing traders to scalpers. Thta is why we have 2 trading systems during our trade room. By your rational, Vince Lombardi had no use as a football coach since he was not playing in the games. With your pool analogy, which holds not water, pun intended, is ridiculous. I show people every day how to build a quality pool before there very eyes in real time. Just because it is not the pool in my own backyard every time I build one does not make the quality of the build any less. Like a few of the jerks on this blog you resort to hurling insults which shows your immaturity, ignorance and anger. Oh yeah, I am Bernie Madoff, Your like a person who flings around the word Nazi at every turn you need to get some help.

Tommy,

I am going to respond to your coach analogy, because it urks me when people make apple and orange comparisons. A Day Trading Room (TR) Operator and educator is not the same as a Sports Coach. A more reasonable comparison would be to a money manager. When one decides to hire someone, you use some sort of Litmus test even if subconsciously. For a TR operator or Money Manager I would say the Litmus test is real proof they can trade profitably.

But for the heck of it, I will go with your sports coach analogy even though it is not equivalent. Off the top of my head there might be 2 reasons I might hire a sports coach. Reason 1, I just want to learn to play the game and have fun for purely entertainment purposes. For this reason my Litmus test for hiring such a coach would be a lot lower. But I really do not think most people start day trade for entertainment and purely for fun, instead they day trade to make money. So that leaves me with my 2nd reason to hire a sports coach and that is I am a professional athlete and want to make the professional team or maybe get on the Olympic team or even win the gold at the Olympics. In this case I am not going to hire some sports coach that says he has trained other athletes. I am going to look at the actual athletes and see their accomplishments and who they used for a coach. My proof is that I can actually see those athletes compete and win. I can see the basketball player in a game or the Olympic athlete winning the gold. That is my Litmus test for hiring a sports coach.

To continue with this analogy, first most Day Trading Operator show the jet style lifestyle and claim or imply they trade profitable. So there litmus test is to prove they Really trade profitable. But let’s say a TR operator says I cannot trade profitable but have taught others to trade profitably, then the Litmus test is those students must show proof they trade profitable. I am telling you a bunch of fake testimonials is meaningless. Until people demand actual proof they will be scammed again and again. It amazes me how many people throw money at these TR operators who show no proof what so ever and sadly yes I have fallen into that camp. I am sooooooooooo ashamed. But that is why I a post here to warn others so they are not ripped off like I was.

” I show people every day how to build a quality pool before there very eyes in real time. Just because it is not the pool in my own backyard every time I build one does not make the quality of the build any less.”

It is always surprising when people expose their moribund thinking. In riposte to this, yes, you are asserting that you build these quality pools. Then I ask you to show me some pools that you have built, and you are telling me that it is none of my business. Let us see some of these self-described, high quality pools, not just you asserting that you can build them. To skip out of the analogy, SHOW US SOME PROOF that you trade profitably, instead of indulging in these ridiculous arguments. Just show the darn proof, not some videos of nebulous calls in price zones; trades that you were not willing to put your money on the line to take, but instead expect your sheeple to just do as you say, instead of do as you do. All the arguing that you are doing here shows just how cynical you are.

But I digress: I have read the original review again, and you have already admitted clearly to Emmett that you do not trade; you consider yourself an entertainer!! I quote: “Tommy does not trade. Period. I recorded our telephone conversation and was honest in telling me that he is old providing market commentary and entertainment. “(sic). Heck, it was right at the top of the review, no less.

“Like a few of the jerks on this blog you resort to hurling insults which shows your immaturity, ignorance and anger. Oh yeah, I am Bernie Madoff, …”

Insults? I described what you are doing, and drew a conclusion. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and talks like a duck, for sure bloody hell, it is a darn duck. You may not yet have displayed anger, but you sure as hell are making ignorant arguments, devoid of the most elementary logic.

I did not say that you are like Bernie Madoff: I said that you are worse. Bernie swindled the rich. Whereas it is debatable if they could afford it, at least they had money that was disposable income: you are conning folks who can really not afford it. That indeed makes you a con man of the lowest kind; a miscegenation of the worst qualities of the open-air third world markets and the slums.

Remember when I told you that it was better to remain silent and be thought of as ignorant instead of to open your mouth and remove all doubt? Has it occurred to you that had you just slunk away, you would not have at least 3 people exposing your chicanery multiple times, in a blog that is the first to come up in Google? Do you really think that you are doing yourself a service, when you repeatedly make ridiculous arguments that are continually getting exposed for your potential victims to see?

Show proof or shut up. Continuing to allow us to expose your reality is not in your best interest.

Tommy, you never give up. They should call you the Stray Dog.

First, I am not aware anyone claimed to be a student of yours. Second you do not have to pay money and be a student to advice would be traders not to pay a trading educator who shows no evidence what so ever they can trade profitable. It like when my sister asked me about selecting a builder to do her addition. I told her the Litmus test I would use for selecting a builder.

The video you show, shows nothing! Great marking and charts to the left with a million indicators. I have been to tons of TR and all have been scam. Talking about trades and actually trading have nothing in common. First the video is only a small segment of the trading day. It shows no type of track record, which would be meaningless anyway based on what I saw. The only thing that matter is if you can actually place real money with real entries, exits and stop losses and trade profitable. Everything else is noise.

It is obvious from your post you do not trade. And I would say anyone paying money to learn to trade from someone that can not trade profitable themselves is a complete fool. It is one thing before this site to be fooled, but now you are aware this whole industry is 99% con artists.

Tommy, if you are so scared to trade ES them maybe trade an ETF that matches to ES. For goodness sake try and take a trade based on your own trade calls and lets see how that goes. I am 100% sure I know how it will go. And if you are still too scared, how about getting one, I am just talking one, of your students to sign up for Emmett’s robot and show how successful they are.

My advice has not changed. If some is trying to sell you a TR or Trading education and they are not trading live, showing brokerage statement to confirm their entries and posting accurate results, run, do no walk away!!!!! And the sad part is that should be the minimum baseline, yet in this industry that minimum if virtually non existent, which speaks volumes about this industry.

If regulations came down on this industry 99.9% would have to close down.

There are hundreds of readers who see through the scam now. Adjusting for ticks and admitting you just take some trades sounds like a complete sim game that dupes are expected to pay a sub for to keep up the monthly churn rate. Those of us posting were burned before by other vendor scams and frankly for far less obvious shenanigans. The record of viewmytrades could just be another bmt journal where most post fictional or sim videos in denial and selectively omit losers.

As he has now clearly admitted, he is armchair quarterbacking, talking about trades but not taking them himself.

According to the description, the TSO robot duplicates the trades taken. Ergo, he cannot sign up for the robot because there are no trades being taken: at least not in real time.

In this industry words mean nothing. That is how this industry has just scammed people again and again. Make up a bunch of fake alias and post glowing reviews.

In nuclear treaties it is trust but verify. In this business it is don’t believe a thing they say unless they show REAL Proof, otherwise you are guaranteed to be scammed.

So being you are doing so well why not show Emmett some evidence of profitable trading or get your friend Tommy to do so.

It is just mind boggling in any honest industry the vendors are quick to show proof, but in this industry is just blah blah blah and run to the hills when asked to show any proof of profitable trading.

No one wants to hear endless ads. SHOW PROOF!!!!!!!! Honestly it would be a 1000 times easy to show Emmett actual proof than make up all these alias then complement yourself on your alias post. I actually get quite a laugh from it. And I doubt I am the only one laughing.

Emmett,

This industry is just so corrupt, it is beyond belief. I am saddened by the post I have to post, because this is not the crap we should be posting about. Let me explain. Trading live, showing proof of your trading with actual brokerage statements and posting accurate results of your trades should be the baseline standard, not the 1 miraculous in 1000 find. We should not have to be posting, “Show actual proof”. Maybe you can change this industry, but I doubt it as I believe there are inherit built in issues.

But like Martin Luther King said, “I have a Dream” and in that dream all trading rooms meet the baseline requirement mentioned above and the things people would be posting would be stuff like this:

“Just remember with his method historically he gets a 50% drawdown so make sure you use proper money management so you can withstand that drawdown.”

We have not one ad on our website. This blog has tons of paid ads. The same fake named people can criticize us over and over and over again like Rob a person who relentlessly badgers us, and gets counted many times on the blog as multiple negative reviews. yet somehow the vast majority of people that comment here approve of our trade room and other offerings. Our user rating is 3.5 stars, yet one person named Emmett gives us 1.5 stars and that is all that shows up on Google search. not the 3.5 stars. Get a life Rob, move and find something better to do.

Tommy,

The only place I have commented regarding your business is here. Lets say every horrible thing you say about me is 100% true, it doesn’t matter and it surely does not make you a profitable trader. And that is the point. I am a business man and investor and I know a scam when I see it. By your logic the people that started to figure out Madoff was a scam should have kept their mouth shut.

This is not about me or anyone else this is about you selling day trading yet refuse to show an ounce of proof that you can day trader profitably. Do you really think a bunch of people want to learn day trading from some day trader that could not trade profitable if his life depended on it. This is like someone saying they want to build a house for you yet they are completely unlicensed and refuse to show any evidence they ever built a house before. If you are going to pay someone in a completely unlicensed & unregulated industry then you better due your due diligence or you are guaranteed to be scammed.

I find it so funny that your argument against me is how dare I tell people they should get actual proof you can trade profitable. Really think about that for a second and maybe do some self reflection. If you do not want me warning people to get actual proof you can trade profitable then you can do 1 of 2 things.

1) Show Emmett proof you can trade profitable. In fact be nice if you showed it to your members each and every day with real broker statements and then keep an accurate record of your real trades. Making trading calls with out placing real trades is just a con game used again and again by scammers. I have seen it too often. Just way to easy to fake those results. I could write a paper on that scam in itself.

2) Put a HUGH disclaimer on your website that says, “This site is for entertainment purposes only. I can not day trade profitably and neither can any of my students, but heck you might luck out and figure out how to do it with my teaching even though I could not. GOOD LUCK!!!” Now that would be an honest statement.

Short of doing those 2 things I really do not see me coming out and telling people to stop ask for actual proof and instead just go on blind faith, drink the Kool-Aid and hope and prey. But Tommy cheer up most people do the latter. So I am sure you will still be able to con people out of their money.

I had initially wrote in a positive review for VMT about a year ago. I said my piece and that hasn’t changed. They run a great trade room and I have been there for years as a client. I came back to this blog for some unknown reason to see what was being said. How ugly some recent posts are from people on this blog! My goodness, a few of them throw the word scam around like it is a meaningless word. It reminds of our political landscape these days. Very sad what can be said about businesses or people online with no accountability. VMT may not be for everyone, but it works well for me and always has and is in no way deserving of such language.

I was in the room and was troubled by this one problem. The room and the track record uses MIT (Market if Touched) to record a fill. The fill price gets recorded at the MIT price which is not real life. So the only way to ensure a fill is to front run the price by one tick. Of course there are times it will go through the price and get you filled. But you risk not getting in the trade. This changes the entire track record as a result. This is why Tommy can’t show you a DOM as it will reveal this discrepancy. For me, on his track record, I just deducted one tick on every trade to get the true results.

Kramnor like some others fail to TELL THE WHOLE STORY. We deduct one tick of slippage on the entry and exit 100% of the time that happens on every trade set-up. Yes agreed if price runs down to a long trade set up and kisses to the tick for a second and runs back up we do NOT cunt the results from the ticked entry, we slide it up one tick in front of the entry. The results are accurate. If you want to critique then do it thoroughly and tell the whole story.

It’s up to the prospective trader to decide. Do you want to pay good money each month and at times have the moderator call a trade and not one person in the room gets filled at that price, yet, he counts it as a good trade and you sit and watch it go on for a big winner? Emmett gave a 4 star review to a room where I found out that the moderator will not put it on his track record unless people in the room say they were filled. Good for Emmett to find the good rooms.

Tommy,

You have got to be kidding. I am curious; Do you realize you are a scam artist or are you completely delusional and think the fantasy world you are showing has any correlation to the real world of trading? This is worse than sim trading. You are talking about trading and trading areas. And talking about fills on touches. I suggest you actually look at a time and sales chart.

Watching this video made me so angry. There is absolutely NO NO NO NO NO relationship between talking about trading and actually placing real trades in the real world with real entries and exits and experiencing slippage and commissions. No relationship exits. Tommy, DO YOU GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the kind of absolute BS crap designed to scam people out of their money as they watch their trades get stopped out again and again and are shocked how they are losing money while you talk about your profitable fantasy trades.

Ah but Rob B is clueless he does not understand my fantasy world is the same as the real world. Heck, maybe you are right. Let Emmett run his robot and for once in your life actually place a trade and let’s see the results. Based on that nonsense video, I am 100% (that is right 100%) confident you will lose your shirt. Please Please proof me wrong.
Any to everyone else out there, unless the Trading Room operator shows Real proof they can trade profitable do not waste your money. Both Sim trading where they use a lienient Sim generator and worst talking about trades has no relationship to results obtained during real world trading. In fact anyone can make money doing the former, while the latter is very difficult to do profitably.

Rob not sure how ALWAYS calling out every trade set BEFORE it happens and calling the exits trailing stops all IN REAL TIME makes it a scam to quote you. I understand if you disagree with a double entry range and you prefer a single entry point. However, that does not make what we do a scam. When ever a trade gets touched to the tick and does not probe through our area, which happens about 30% of the time, we deduct one tick on the entry and exit if applicable for the spread. People can easily follow what we do and have for years. We would not be in business if that was not the case. Our room is not for you. Go find one that fits your needs.

Tommy,

I stand by my remarks 100%

I have just been to enough trading rooms to see the scams. It is just too easy to make a losing trader look like a brilliant trader by calling out areas. They lie about the trades and then have the shill in the room say how much money they made on the trade that actually lost money.

But I challenge you to prove me wrong. In fact I bet of you to prove me wrong. You have time to post here, then you have time to show Emmett your live brokerage statements. Even though that can be faked, it is harder. But somehow I doubt you will do it.

You see calling trades and actually trading are not the same. These TR operators sing long and loud on their winners and quickly brush their losers under the table. Only a brokerage statement showing real trading means anything. That is the only way to tell if a TR operator can trade profitable. Who want to learn trading from some unprofitable losing trader turned educator. BTW that is 99% of this industry.

If you cannot do that, then I suggest you put a big Disclaimer on your website saying:

“I cannot trade profitable if my life dependent on it, but I will call out trades and maybe you will get lucky and figure out how to do it profitably”

Because that is exactly what you do. Maybe you feel that is a legit business model. I think it is a scam.

Emmett is finally finding a few traders that show actual trade a live account (what a novel concept) and they show their broker’s statements to prove it. My suggestion to all, is follow those folks, otherwise be prepared to be scammed. Wake up want to be traders, if the TR operator is not trading live; THERE IS A REASON!!!!!! And I guarantee it is not the BS one they will give you.

You could have a hundred instances of discussion where the “trade” went your way in the video, and two hundred where it went south and was silently glossed over and new dupes to the room won’t know the truth until they already paid a month and contributed to he monthly churn rate.

Sorry Rob, but we do NOT call out “areas”, we call out specific entry points, stops and profit targets with our specific trade set-ups. Watch the video from today’s trade room here for an example of a live trade called before it happens

https://youtu.be/_IhE8gcf3gA

If you can’t follow that and be profitable there is a problem with the trader not the room.

The bounce points which is something totally separate, have a 3 tick entry area and 3 tick stop for a whopping 6 ticks entry to stop. That is far less than a typical 3 point stop most traders use off a single entry.

Yes it is a fake name. I was surely in your room as a paid subscriber. I can tell you the sad news about your dad and how your daughter shares a bed with you and your wife. Discussing me is just fallacious arguing. Stick to the issues presented.

This raises a good question, Why don’t you supply any information about you on your site and in your room? I only found out your name from Emmett. Why is there no business address or trading bio on you? I’m surprised Emmett didn’t bring this up as he did on other reviews. You want to be considered this legitimate site, so just supply this information and use Emmett’s robot. Any prospective subscriber should demand this.

If you don’t want to do the robot, why don’t you be a seller on Collective2? There, only real trades get put on the track record. Those are the real traders. It even displays the prices the followers were filled at and deducts commissions and their fee before posting the track record.

Another thing some room moderators do is get qualified as a Top Step Trader. That adds legitimacy.

To say no to all three options, and even the option to only report actual fills tells me that person either has a failed system that he is trying to disguise or has an ego problem.

Understand that missing one trade here and there is usually the difference between a profitable or unprofitable system. People demand that your room moderator only count trades where someone in the room got a fill at that price, not front running the trade!

Manu’s use of English grammar might not be the best, but his math appears to be better than VMT’s. VMT gives a 1 point entry “zone” with the stated stop one point behind that. 1 point plus 1 point does indeed equal a 2 point loss. I think VMT is saying that people bracket the entry to the middle, but that means MANY trades will not trigger or have less than full position. But VMT starts counting if the prices just touches the front of the box. If the trade is on, then it is on. You cant count it as triggered from the front of the box and only count stops from the middle. Total rubish accounting.So 82% win rate posted, even if it’s accurate is meaningless as average win size is reduced for no/partial fillson both entry and exit while you will always participate in full losses.

We do not even know who “Jim” is but he certainly was never a member of the email alerts nor has he read our website or called with any questions. If Jim took the time to read the email alert rules and understand them he would know we clearly state the expectation and the goal is to get a portion of the move for that very reason of staggered entries and exits along with trailing stops. The portion of the move should be about 30% or so and that is very realistic. So if the email alerts make 40 points in a month a trader can expect to bag about 10 – 15 points. That is 100% doable and is done by many members who have been with us for years. Some trades will have a 2 point stop for a trader and others may have a 1 point stop depending on their entry strategy. It depends how every trader decides to trade the email alerts. The alerts go about at 8:00am every day and often trigger 1 hour later, that is why there is a one point entry zone with a 1 point stop behind that zone. A 2 point stop is certainly not risky and is very conservative. It is impossible to send out an email alert with a to the tick entry when moving averages, divergence and trend lines etc are changing every few minutes. Anyone can take a free trial to see for themselves without risking a penny. As we always say, sometimes we have people like Jim, who we do not know, was never a member and writes a scathing review about a service he never took the time to understand. That is the internet for you.

But first I thought I would be look under the hood since there was so many “Live Trade Room” recordings posted. However, the videos may be titled “Live Trade Room Recording” but are just a recap. Okay semantics maybe but..Then the second thing I noticed was the “fuzzy math” accounting for the email alerts. I already stated my case and stand by it. VMT response has a lot of fluff but doesn’t address my point. Curiously, the “bounce point” numbers count profit AND loss from the front of the entry zone. Why would the Email alert then count profit from the front and loss from the rear?

This blog review is starting to get filled with utter non sense and lies. Jim for example says the “Live Trade Room” recordings are just recaps. NOT TRUE. Anyone reading this go to our website and on the home page in the middle of the page you see 3 videos boxes. The left is the daily recap, the center is the intro video and the right are the LIVE TRADE ROOM RECORDINGS. They are 100% live unedited recordings from our trade room. Also Jim states we count the email profit from the back of the box, another outright lie by Jim. We count only from the front of the box. There are many days the email alerts probe into the box by 1 point and we leave that off the table in terms of profit. Funny, we do not even know who Jim is. I guarantee many of the negatives reviews are the same person writing the same dishonest garbage. I was warned by many people in the industry to just not respond to people that try to harm your business with dishonest reviews. They said most are fake, most are also from competitors. They said you will be writing counter reviews and waste time and these people like Jim, we just keep at or like Manu. Remember Manu the reviewer that in fact never was a member nor took a free trial, and to quote him, “I am not looking for a trade room, I am looking for a friend,” Maybe Jim is Manu and they are the same person?

I have a question about the performance displayed for exemple email
After watching videos. The performances are strange and not coherent.
He counts the points on the minimum entry of zone alert, but this stop = 1.5 p from the middle of the zone alert ! lol Instead a stop to 2 points ..
So there is already a floating 0.5 points for his fine performances …

Nothing beats a real live statement ….

Reply to  Manu

Manu you completely wrong with your comments. Most traders enter our email alerts with a staggered entry providing for a 1 points stop, which is less than the 1.5 point stop we show for email alert losses and certainly less than the 2 points you claim. I will also note, which of course you failed to state, we only count the gains from the first touch of the box not the probe inside the box up to one tick of the stop. So in many cases we do not count 1.50+ points traders earn on top of what we record because we choose to count points very conservatively. Finally you neglect to comment on how we clearly state on our website performance page for the email alerts the goal is to get a portion of the move we record due to people trailing stops and scaling out at different intervals. The internet is an interesting place where anyone can post anything about any business or person, truth or fiction, full facts or partial facts, as in this case, and people believe what they read.

Hello Tommy. ஜ

Even a simple “Hi”, is extremely rare. -_-

I’m not talking about how your customers trade your alerts.
But on the way to count your points. ^_^
Which is illogical…
-If you open your trade in the middle of the given area, then the stop = 1.5 point
-If you open your trade at the end of the zone (the farthest) then stop = 0.5 points
-If you open the trade at the beginning of the nearest given area (like you) then the stop must be 2 points …
Logical right?
Otherwise, you have a floating 0.5p in your favor in your performance

The way your write does not even make sense and your little images do not help with clarity but certainly are annoying. In a round about strange way you just made our point for us. The majority of bounce points do get probed inside the very small 3 tick entry box and we still count a 1.50 point on every losing trade. So yes I would agree the performance numbers do have some errors as you say. Our performance on the bounce points is MUCH BETTER than what we record. Please move on to another trading room better suited for you. There will not be another response with you.

As a veteran inconsistent trader and member of many rooms in the past, I think maybe I have found a room I can stay in for years to come. I did a 3 day free trial then I paid for a month which I am 4 days into that first paid month but for this small time period of 7 days trader is clear on his calls and mentions many times that some traders front run his entries and profit exits by a tic. This will assure you of being in every trade that is counted. It then all comes down to contract and money management. How many contracts do I trade, when do I take profit, etc. Trader does give suggestions but you do need to figure that out based on your account size, emotions, etc. The lines and boxes on the chart are hard to see an exact price so It would be nice if trader had a place where the trades could be written so I have a place to reference when I forget what he said about an entry or stop cause things do move too fast to ask sometimes but I understand screen space is limited so I try to listen closely and note stuff down.
In summary I am impressed with Viewmytrades early on and personally I do not care whether he trades or not, the bottom line is honesty and can I make money following and so far the answer to both are yes!

I was a member of VMT a few years ago, only for a month as I quickly decided that it was not for me.

I am a doctor working nights so I was able to attend most days though not every day.

My issues were a complete disengagement between the published results and what actually happened (whether you got filled or not if a level was tapped for a nanosecond). Any real trader knows you cannot trade like that. You do not trade IN THEORY. Yo trade in practice. Does not need to be live account, I would be happy with SIM. But it HAS to be trading not talking about it. This can literally mean the difference between a success and an account being blown away.

I talked to Tom before joining, nice enough guy. In those days I was a very inexperienced trade and whatever the excuse was for not actually showing the DOM or chart trader, I bought it. I would never do so now.

Tom needs to show live trades on DOM or chart trader (live or SIM) and then statements that match the results obtained live. This will reduce the success rate ( that at present only takes into account the best possible scenario) but will add the credibility. If the room is still profitable, Tom will have a winner. No one will question anything else. It is not Tom’s problem that someone did not put a trade on quickly enough or pressed the wrong button. He cannot be responsible for any individual. But he is responsible for showing that his own trade room is REAL. That what is claimed really happened.

Let us remember that people pay these rooms to really trade. To MAKE MONEY. That is the point. Because the income from the membership is risk-free for the owner, his duty is to ensure he has done all in his power to increase transparency for his paying members.

Hi Nadina,

I remember you from a long time ago with View My Trades. First off a lot has changed since then and second if memory serves correct you were in our trade room for a very amount of time. A few comments to address your past concerns. Are results are absolutely achievable. We have members with us for many years. We did change how we calculate points. nothing is counted to the tick and everything takes into one tick of slippage. We altered are entry and exit points a bit to try and not squeeze everything out of trade and allow for price to clearly probe though our strike points by at least 2 ticks. I think you would find our room very much improved and contrary to what people have said we do not count the “very best scenario” on our trade set-ups that is on the bounce points and we state if a trade can get 30% or so of that total that is the goal. Example the bounce points as of late have been averaging close to 100 points per month would comes to around 30 points or so…very doable. I hope to you come by for another free trial. Thanks Tommy.

We are working on some changes for this year and showing the trades on the charts is one thing we are considering. Thanks
