For nearly his entire adult lifetime, Price Headley of Big Trends has been selling some form of ‘Investment Tonic.’

This long-time trading guru of 16+ years can often be found prognosticating and bloviating on CNBC and Fox Business.

He proclaims to be a trading and investment master of every financial environment. A spin-meister and master carnival huckster. The masses are lured from the television towards the computer. Where they are offered a boatload of BS. Everything from magical trading indicators, BootCamps, stock picking services, and mentorships.

Price Headley has no track record of ever trading successfully. And wants nothing to do with tough questions about his past.

A literal school bus full of people has contacted TradingSchools.Org with horror stories of busted trading accounts, fantasy trading results, lost retirement savings, and sleight-of-hand performance summaries.

This guy is a charlatan and con artist of the highest order.


Pros: A master salesman. A+ financial bullshit artist and very good marketer.
Cons: A sweet talking slickster that would lick the wax our of your ear--if he could sell it for a nickel.

Complaints, Broken Promises, Busted Trading Accounts

One thing you will not find anywhere on the Big Trends website are stated performance results. Its simply does not exist. Prospective purchasers must simply trust.

TradingSchools.Org reached out to Price Headley at Big Trends in hopes of writing an official review–complete with performance discovery and disclosure. Unfortunately, Price Headley at Big Trends wanted nothing to do our tough questions. We could watch in real time as they furiously opened and quickly deleted our requests for performance disclosure. Finally, the closest admission to guilt was a response that simply quipped, “All trading services are for entertainment and educational purposes only.”

So how have customers performed by following this long-time trading guru? Not so good. Since 2015, TradingSchools.Org has received a constant, and consistent ‘slow trickle’ of complaints.

The complaints are remarkably similar. The victim signed up for a trading advisory service, or an auto trading service through various integrated brokerages. The results were consistently abysmal. However, on the accompanying web promotional’s that are blasted to prospective customers, there were hardly every any mention of losing trades. They simply disappeared like a fart on a windy day.

But for those stuck with massive losses, the smell of losses remains. Like a fart in a Japanese bathhouse. And like all good and smelly farts, the odor finds a way to escape. And it make its way over to TradingSchools.Org.

The following are a few choice quotes from extremely pissed off customers of Price Headley at Big Trends.

The only thing consistent was the losing of my money. After 9 months, not a single winning month. Lost 65% of my life savings. -gb

Price sounds so smart. A real talker. That helped me lose $50k. -ml

After 4 months auto-trading on Think Or Swim, he lost nearly everything. This guy is horrible. Its a scam. -rn

I signed up for Option Sniper (now defunct). He destroyed my account. -sm

To continue with the complaints would beleaguer the point. You get it. This guy is a fraud.

Big Trends and Price Headley: the marketing scheme

Typically, when I draft a review. I look at the web analytics of the subject vendor. I want to know how much traffic that Google is awarding to the website. With Big Trends and Price Headley, there is very little Google keywords ranking. So, I found it really curious how this guy was able to generate so many customers and complaints.

Well, it turns out that Price Headley has been hustling the usual financial media channels: CNBC, Fox Business, Bloomberg and Wall Street Journal. Essentially, these video media outlets need interviews. And so they have a cast or cadre of supposed “financial experts” that throw onto the air and ask questions. Price Headley is great at this. This guy can spin a story faster than a slot machine will take your money. Is Tesla up 5%? Price knows the exact reason why! Like he has a finger up the butt of Elon Musk.his blabber mouth will blabber for as long they give him airtime.

This blabber mouth will blabber for as long they give him airtime.

Of course, at the bottom of the screen. Just below the distinguished looking face of Price Headley is a visual that reads: Price Headley,, Founder, and President.

Big Trends

Investment advise from television talking heads?

One has to wonder if media outlets like CNBC, Fox Business, etc, do they vet any of these clowns? How in the heck did this knucklehead get himself on the show?

In my opinion, they pick the people that sound ‘learned’, and most importantly…look the part. Doesn’t Price ‘look’ like a stereotypical hedge fund manager? What if he had an outrageous afro? Would he still be on the show?

Big Trends Price Headley

I really want to give you investment advice.

Wrapping Things Up

There is nothing wrong with hiring a trading educator. Or subscribing to an investment advisory. Or an investment newsletter. Heck, I am the biggest sucker for investment newsletters. I buy just about everything. And keep it right next to the toilet. Nothing better than sitting on the commode and reading an investment newsletter. One of the simple pleasures.

But, it’s important that the vendor has some sort of verifiable track record. Something that gives us a realistic expectation of the good, and the bad.

Guys like Price Headley at Big Trends, they really irritate me. They have worked for nothing, they are masters of bullshit. Virtual con artists. They curate an image and manipulate themselves onto popular media channels, and then pitch their useless products and services. The results are predictable.

Anyway, thanks for reading. Would love to read your opinions below.

Price Headley spoke knowledgably and smooth and seemed to know what he was doing in the markets. I tried one of his Option services, which seemed really too expensive to me. But I reasoned, well, if it makes me money than it is worth it.

My first trade was a serious loser, and as I discovered later, the timing of the trade was poor. Over 2 months with lots of loses and not many winners, I asked if I could be transferred to another option service. He did do that for me.

I didn’t win more than I lost there either. I kept track of his trades, but I started taking only occasional recommended trades that I researched and I started using my own entry points and not his. In the end, like a bad trade, I stopped myself out of his services. I stopped trying to use his ADX and DMI system of trading.

There are winning traders out there. One I recommend is Diversified Trading Institute (DTI) and Tom Busby in Mobile Alabama. He really trades and he wins.

I’ve used some BigTrends programs and while some lost money (though nothing in the catastrophic amounts you seem to suggest), a couple of them made money too. They don’t post track records on their site but I received their warts-and-all performance when I emailed them. Overall, I’m net positive from my experiences with BigTrends and while it may not be the same for everyone, I think the above review is overly harsh.

Curiously, I just saw this exact same review (with a couple of minor edits) under a different author on another website when I was looking for other opinions about BigTrends.

Thanks Emmet,
You saved me from loosing some money. He was a part of a day-long webinar put up by MetaStock’s Jeff Gibby last Saturday. Unbelievable how these people don’t check the credibility of clowns they introduce to new traders. I really have to be serious about investigating everybody before spending another dime on this “education” and stock-picking services.

Even though she is with Fox Business these days, as long as you do not attack Maria Bartiromo I am good. I like her. Did you see here at the Al Smith Charity Dinner?

Maria Bartiromo’s Massive Cleavage Upstaged Both Donald Trump And Hillary Clinton At The Al Smith Charity Dinner

As for CNBC I like the host that are not stock pickers like Joe Kernen and when they bring on hedge fund and mutual fund managers that have a track record.

yeah, I remember that dinner. I don’t have a problem with her looks , she is rather attractive visually and it was fun to have seen that since Megyn Kelly cornered much of the rest of the journalistic spotlight related to Trump for the election year, otherwise I’ll leave it at that. I agree when they bring on the best performing funds with the realistic positive returns, those spots can be of value. Otherwise I’m tired of the fastmoney, lee, najarian lot, and switch it off when the sharktank billionaires start lording it over, or mute it until, if American Greed is soon after lol.

CNBC mostly a waste of time because they are part of the problem. Exactly right with Fast Money and the other stock picking yahoos being the main culprit. Maria lost some journalistic integrity with that scandal years back, but I assume men don’t watch her for hard hitting reporting. American Greed, however, is an excellent show with a insightful view into the minds of con men. I wonder if is these trading vendor sites would ever be a target.

What scandal? I stopped watching all financial news a long time ago.

I’d agree it’s ironic how CNBC would have a sham like this guy to ask questions on a segment (fast money?). Well he does have the CNBC contributer “Steve Liseman” loo and “hairstyle”, lol. (same “blustery” voice?) It was a hoot to see him and Steve Santelli and their occasional clashes like the BLS job numbers, lol. I’d seen Levin spotted a few times but now rarely so. One time the “forex bootcamp” guy was on there too. Yet the great show “American Greed” did a fine job digging into past major and some local ponzis and scams. It was funny to see Stacy Keach, the narrator of the show appear for a chat with CNBC hosts and it was obvious he was well actored “investigative” “criminal chasing” voice , but that was about it as he admittedly showed little background in finance or criminology. It would be wonderful if they could ramp up the show and dig into these retailer scams where they could cover the “proshams” such as Warrior and Levin where they have made millions churning the next new generation of aspiring retailers. Overall imo I think CNBC turns a blind eye in general to the retail shenanigans as they have also been sponsored by brokers such as IB and TDA. Cramer once in a while could refer to a vendor “technician”. Sometimes they don’t take them seriously which is better than endorsing by far. I don’t know, it’s been long rumored CNBC’s own ratings have been among their lowest in the last decade since they have lost or rotated out some of their hosts and a few of their old guard have passed or (semi)retired such as Kudlow and Mark Haines. Geez, And I am so sick of seeing Melissa Lee. She’s nice looking and intelligent and all, but they have had on far too many segments throughout the day, and it’s just not the same without Mandy Drury anymore, lol. I used to waste a lot of time watching them. I did not miss Bartiromo leaving. I think RobB’s or some of the other old comments; advice on investment is frankly as good or better bet than all of those talking heads to be honest in this day and age.

CNBC and all the financial news networks are part of the problem without a doubt. TV seemingly creates instant credibility to the viewers. Unfortunately they never seem to investigate the charlatans that they have on spewing investment bs to the masses. Even with the negative press this review will create, this clown show will continue to hock his wares to the misinformed. CNBC always seems to have on someone claiming that the market is going to sell off 50 percent then in the next segment someone claims that the market still has 30 percent upside. When the market finally makes a measured move, they will bring back the huckster that hit the dart board in the vicinity of the move.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
