Chartsky is a live day trading room with zero performance disclosure. Furthermore, the proprietor refuses to reveal his name, or even a contact email address. A deep web search reveals that the owner of Chartsky also has about a dozen other trading websites offering all manner of “trading secrets”. Trading room has no free trial, we are expected to simply trust and hope that we don’t get screwed. A magnificent waste of time.

Thanks for reading today’s review of Chartsky
What is Chartsky? The Chartsky website offers a live day trading room that can be subscribed at a monthly cost of $299 per month.
A quick review of the website reveals that there is no trading performance posted anywhere. There is no free trial of the trading room. The owner refuses to give his first or last name. There is no email address to contact this person. The website looks like it was created by a 9 year old on a Saturday afternoon. Whomever is running this website simply wants people to send him $299 per month to watch him trade. Yet, he refuses to release any information regarding his own personal trading experience. Furthermore, he has the website registration hidden from public view.
Why in the hell am I reviewing this piece of crap? Because I have now gotten 10 requests to review Chartsky. Once I hit the magical 10 requests, then a review commences. I have to ask those 10 readers that have asked me to review Chartsky, why? Please explain in the comments section. What could possibly compel anyone to send this bozo any money?
Chartsky: a closer look
One of the investigative tools that I like to use is a “server snooper”. What does that mean? Suppose that Chartsky is sitting on an IP address located at XYZ location, and the server is also identified ABC, then we can be reasonably certain that any additional website located at the same IP address and the same server will be affiliated with the same person. In other words, Chartsky is attempting to hide his identity from public view, but I have a few clever tricks that reveal whom the person actually is.
Who is Chartsky? Very simply, he is a yet another internet hustler selling yet another trading product, promising profits of $300 per day. Lets take a look at some of “Chartsky’s other websites.
tradershelpingtraders.net, live-trading-room.com, tradershelpingtraders.com, traderville.org, coffeetradersforum.com, commoditycafe.com, commodityville.com, tradershelpingtraders.org, commoditypickreport.com
If you take a look at these sites, they are basically a slew of get rich quick offerings of trading magic. Ebooks of various stripe that purport to teach secret trading methods and amazing trading setups. This list is long. and the offerings are all of the “get rich quick” variety.
Chartsky: for dogs and cats (and a ravioli roller)
In addition to running an amazing trading room, and selling a slew of trading books on how to get rich quick across a wide field trading websites. Chartsky is also offering a wide variety of pet products that help get rid of fleas and ticks, scabies, scratching, and mange. You can find Chartsky’s other websites here:
everydaysolutionsrx.com, mangerx.com, neemqueen.com, stopfleas.org, stopscabies.com,
Tying everything together
All of these websites are located at the same IP address, the same server identifier, and the same name server “TradersHelpingTraders.Net”. Its all the same person. Who is this person? After digging through all of these websites it was apparent that all of these websites lead back to the following person:
So, there you have it. Chartsky is a registered CTA by the name of Erich Senft. But for me, the biggest question is why hide? Why go through all of this trouble to hide your identify Erich? If a newbie investigator like myself could find your true indentity in 15 minutes, then why even go through all the effort?
Wrapping Things UP
Chartsky is obviously a ridiculous proposition. Whom would be foolish enough to send this person $300 each month, when he has zero track record? He refuses to reveal his identity. Hides his IP registration and wont even include a contact email address on his website. Why would anyone be crazy enough to even contemplate sending this odd ball a nickel?
Well that’s it for today. A wasted morning researching and writing about yet another trading room with absolutely no proof of success.
Everydoby! Don’t waste 1 penny with this con artist. Another scammer in this industry. Today was my 10th day in his room. Guess what? He didn’t take NO ONE SINGLE WINNING TRADE. Just losing trades or BE (remember BE are losing trades too, because of comissions and fees).
According to his website, “we shoot for $300 to $400 a day, per position, in a LIVE! Trading Room”. SIMPLY RIDICULOUS!!! Yeah, NO ONE SINGLE WINNING TRADE in 10 days.
If you lost Money with this criminal, BE IN CONTACT WITH ME. I’m going to guide you how to recuperate your money. Moreover, I’m going to guide you how to complain about him to NFA, CFTC, FBI, spread his reputations to all internet fóruns, social media, etc.
Let’s fuck this con artist, cheat, scammer!
CONFIRMED! I am sooo SORRY I threw 300 bucks to the trash for Chartsy Trading Room.
Not only he cannot trade at all, he is an absolute fake and a fraudster.
In zero days out of 5 he was able to reach the target stated on his website. On the week he had a negative balance. 2 days out of 5 he left the room much earlier. On Friday he did not come at all.
He is good only at one thing: grabbing the first month fee and running away with the money! and probably laughing at us who paid him.
Don’t do it!
Eric is a straight up guy. I don’t know about his trading account and never ask him. BTW I am not one of his paid subscribers either. I do not use any of the indicators that he sells. i did subscribe to his weekend and get it every Sunday night. He shows trades for the next week. Below is the one I got last night.
Your Big Weekend Edition is posted at
I don’t know how his personal trading is going. I can tell you that from what I’ve seen he seems to know what he is doing. His monthly track records in this report every Sunday go back for a couple of years.
I’ve taken many of his trades myself, won some and lost some they are right in line with what he said happened to his account at the same time.
Not sure why he is being beat up. Also I’ve never been in his trading room so I can’t speak of that. I can only say what I’ve seen the last few years in his free weekend trading newsletter showing trades for the next week and a recap of where the trades he has send out are and if they are winning or losing. Seems he has a good track record of making good trade recommendations.
It’s amazing there are so many educators and self-trading. The mainstream media is still behind the times of retail online trading and the vendor businesses. The only time I saw reports on trading educators were small sound bites of Rockwell traders and “warriors of wall street” showcasing Tim Sykes. They have no idea or fail to report about these vending businesses which seem to be more numerous and thriving than individual hot dog stands in the U.S. They need to report this as part of the “new economy” in the U.S. just like CNBC’s “Marijuana Inc.” special which showed ghost towns in northing CA fueled mainly by in house pot farms. Well that truck stand lady wised up and started teaching “orderflow”. haha.
Erich Senft you exposed thieving, anal scumbag!
Good job getting this guy!
Lets see how deep the rabbit hole goes. I see indicator warehouse is in cahoots with
Mind Muscles trading psychology- another rip off program in itself. lol
In linkedin he provides some sort of location.
Erich Senft i don’t believe is the same trader in chartsky…you can easily tell it’s not their same voice from their youtube videos. Chartsky has a southern drawl and is probably a very old man. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIcmN0gq9JQ vs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlrmaZivVI0
Anyway I was in chartsky’s “room” for 1 day! His trading was so horrible I never returned. (he just places trades off s/r and hopes it works out even with falling knife patterns trades that slice through support ) I paid $300 for 1 stinking day….i asked for a refund….even 50% so he can still profit greatly but he refused.
Erich Senft runs http://www.indicatorwarehouse.com.
Holy crap, there he is.
This is an odd situation because all of these websites lead back to him. Maybe he has a partner running Chartsky? Or an affiliation.
Now I have to get a review of Indicator Warehouse and figure this mystery out.
Thanks for posting this.
Eric Senft and Chartsky are not the same person. I had a one day trail in Chartsky room,and it was a joke the man does not know how to trade. Chartsky is from the South, and EricSenft is from British Columbia. I sat in on the free trading room that Eric hosts for indicator warehouse. They were definitely not the same person. Also indicator warehouse is operated by Adam Halpern. I have purchased a couple of indicators from them, and I had a customer service issue. Adam called me back. Personally to follow up, and we had a pleasant conversation. So I am confident that Eric,Chartsky and Adam are not the same person. Great site Emmett thank you for all your reviews.
Yep, I figured that one out and need to change it.
Oh yeah, David’s multiple addresses were in Nevada, a gun rights state. Amazingly, I just found Mark Deaton’s newest oil. Now he claims retailers can subscribe to his “NSA surveillance technology” to see what the ‘market movers’ are doing and make 688% to 1000% profits! http://www.snoopwire.com
Another long vertical ad page. This guy usually follows the current fad. Like warriortrading’s use and promotion of http://www.trade-ideas.com scanner software. $39/month as opposed to trade-idea’s $99/month.
Another good job on rooting out a longtime hustler of nonsense. Back in the years before 2010 and the newer slick flash sites of vendors today, I’m sure you recall there were those long one page cookie cutter like ads with the “low” price of $97 or $297 button at the bottom. There were many MT4 forex magic formula, method or indicator ads like this. “Old tree publishing” had so many of these ads from forex gurus. Another guy who left many websites in the dust similar to this review is Mark Deaton. If you look on archive.org for tradinghelpingtraders.net vs. chartsky.com , it’s apparent Erich Senft’s old vertical multipage long ad sites started back in 2003 thru 2007. Then on chartsky.com his words talk about how they had been surviving for six years. I guess one could conclude that Mr. Senft wanted to make a fresh start with chartsky away from all the scam ad sites in the mid-2000’s with chartsky. I would also make a comment that his oil trade videos look as magical as David Kuvelas oiltradingacademy both based on a simple chart. Well, at least the ravioli roller looks interesting. Maybe it can be found at a local dollar store.
David Kuvelas…oh my. I have bad dreams about that guy buying a bunch of guns from a gun show.
He’s hiding his identity because all this trading crap of his violates NFA rules for CTAs and he could get seriously fined and even banned because of it..
Omg. Another scumbag who wants fixed income. 300 bucks?:o But I wonder more, how does anyone get to know this unknown room.. Surprises me how many exist. I feel like the last person in the world without service to juice out noobs:)
P.S. Please come back to twitter!
