Summary claims a nearly perfect trading record with a combined investment return of over 7,000% since 2012. However, when asked for proof of these amazing investment returns, none can be provided. The trading room is a horror show of pure nonsense. Resembles the sad and pathetic offspring of a carnival act bred to Mad Money’s Jim Cramer. A laughable horror show of terrible investment advice. Three stooges, tinged with a shady past of boiler rooms, fraudulent investments, Finra fines, FBI arrests, and fraud. Avoid.

Pros: Moderately entertaining financial blather.
Cons: Track record is pure, unsubstantiated fraud. Owners of company making wild claims of success, yet can provide absolutely no proof of any prior trading success. A financial shit-show.

Thanks for reading today’s review of InTheMoneyStocks

What is InTheMoneyStocks? InTheMoneyStocks is a day trading, swing trading, and options trading educational service. As per, the business appears to have originated back in 2007.

The website is registered to a person named Bryan Leighton, whom at one point was a registered stock broker.

The “Chief Market Strategist” of InTheMoneyStocks is a person named Gareth Soloway. Prior to being the President and “Chief Market Strategist” of InTheMoneyStocks, Gareth Soloway was a stock broker for a now defunct and bankrupt stock brokerage named Great Eastern Securities. As many of my readers are aware, I am former penny stock promoter that served time in Federal Prison for securities fraud. Let me tell you plainly, Great Eastern Securities was a boiler room operator that peddled highly speculative stock offerings for high commissions, and little respect for individual investors. In fact, Great Eastern Securities (and the proprietors) have a long and sordid history of hustling small investors.

Finally, in 2007, Great Eastern Securities was closed down and their licensing was revoked by Finra. A reading of the fines and penalties is the stuff that quickly turns cream into butter. Huge fines, allegations of fraud and deception, ties to organized crime, multiple complaints from various parties, FBI arrests, etc. In total, nearly a million dollars in fines and penalties from Finra.

It appears that immediately after Great Eastern Securities imploded, InTheMoneyStocks was born.

Amazing Performance Claims

InTheMoneyStocks makes some pretty amazing claims. In fact, a review of their website proclaims that their trades are 100% authentic and verifiable. Lets take a look at the performance claims of the Options Advisory Service that currently sells for $99.99 per month.

  • 2014 claims a net profit of 1012%
  • 2015 claims a net profit of 3117%
  • 2016 (Jan-July) claims a net profit of 534%

Truly amazing. For only $99.99 per month, you can now make over 1000’s of percent every year! Imagine for a moment, if you had only invested $10,000 beginning in 2014, and taken every trade. Your compounded returns would now be worth a whopping $22,680,107.

My question is simple, does anyone on the planet really believe that InTheMoneyStocks can turn $10,000 into $22,680,107 in only 2.5 years? Of course, the lottery is real and so maybe InTheMoneyStocks is also real. And so I next reached out to InTheMoneyStocks and asked for some sort of proof that these trades were ever actually executed. Their response was NO RESPONSE.

But wait, InTheMoneyStocks also has a live day trading chat room that runs Monday through Friday. From 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM the chat room is managed by Gareth Soloway. From 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM the chat room is moderated by a person named Nicholas Santiago. Surely, inside the chat room I would discover my dream of becoming a multimillionaire in only a few months…

Inside the live trading room

During the month of July, I attended two weeks of the “live trading room” ($299 per month). Not once did I ever see a trading DOM present on the screen. Nor any evidence of an actual, live trading account. No verifiable track record whatsoever. What did I see? For two excruciating weeks I sat through what can only be described as a combination of late night infomercial, vacuum cleaner sales presentation, time share sales presentation, and three-card Monte.

Both Gareth Soloway and Nicholas Santiago are nothing more than circus clowns. Dancing through fancy sounding words and carnival barking, making proclamations of big breakouts and moving average strangleholds and all manner of technical trading buffoonery. The day trading room is a combination of 4th of July fireworks show, Miss Teen USA Pageant, The Kardashians, and Monday Morning Quarterbacking.

In fact, I would nominate Gareth Soloway into the Hindsight Hall Of Fame. If there actually were such a place, I amInTheMoneyStocks sure that Gareth Soloway would have a bust on prominent display. Never before have I seen such an amazing predictor of price, a day after it happened.

The day trading room is a complete and total shit show of nonsense and useless information. No official track record of any sort. And if Gareth or Nicholas do make a losing call, its quickly forgotten and never a mention that it ever happened. Armchair quarterbacking at its finest.

The amazing product offering

Of course, perhaps listening to Gareth and Nicholas talk incessantly about technical analysis and impending market moves is not enough. Perhaps you need the ultimate predictor of price. Well, nothing to worry about my friends, because the geniuses at InTheMoneyStocks have created the ultimate fortune telling device. Its a special calculator that is named the, “Proprietary Institutional Calculator”. Its an “easy to use, amazing profit generator, never before released to the public”.

This Proprietary Calculator Allows You To Find Every Major Support, Resistance And Pivot Point On Any Chart. Use It On The Markets, Stocks, Commodities, and Currencies. Never Worry About Where A Chart Will Bounce Or Drop, Be In Front Of Every Chart. Use The Master Calculator To Profit On Every Major Move.

For only $29 per month, you never need to worry where price will go again, it works on all time frames and all securities, all the time. Easy profits my friends.

More Easy Profits

Of course, maybe options are not for you. And you just want to become a millionaire overnight. With little fuss or hassle, you can do it! Just sign up for the super amazing stock alerts service for only $99 per month. Tired of losing trades? Tired of losing months? Well no worries because since 2012, InTheMoneyStocks has never had a losing month! And hardly ever a losing trade. Lets review the supposed track record:

  • 2012 claims a net profit of 709%
  • 2013 claims a net profit of 498% 
  • 2014 claims a net profit of 670%
  • 2015 claims a net profit of 865%
  • 2016 (Jan-July) claims a net profit of 605%

Wow, for only $99 a month, all your dreams can come true. Lets once again use a simple compounding calculator, and a beginning balance of $10k to see how profitable we could now be.

  • Year 1: $80,900
  • Year 2: $483,782
  • Year 3: $3,725,121
  • Year 4: $35,947,421
  • Year 5: $253,429,321

Truly amazing folks. Start with $10k and in only 4.5 years, you could now be worth over 250 million dollars. One of the richest people on the planet. Of course, if you attempt to verify these amazing returns by asking Gareth Soloway or Nicholas Santiago for proof that they made any of these trades…the response is no response at all.

Why even offer the service for $99 per month? Why not just become professional money managers and become the worlds most successful investors? Heck, with such an amazing track record, why bother with this live trading room nonsense?

Wrapping Things Up

Sometimes when I write these reviews, I cannot help but laugh at the nonsense that I witness. And sometimes, I get really pissed off at the level of fraud, misrepresentation, chicanery, and outright BS that some of these trading operators are pushing. InTheMoneyStocks is one the worst. As as matter of fact, its a top 10 destination for trading fraud. To claim these types of returns, backed with absolutely no proof is egregious. The heart of this fraud is the fake track record. Nobody would spend a nickel on these ass clowns without the fraudulent track record. They lean on that fake track record to draw in yet more victims.

Sadly, these guys have little remorse, shame, or guilt that real people are losing their life savings investing in this stuff. The only thing they care about his suckering in folks to listen to them chat for $99 a month, and wasting a few hundred dollars on their useless educational course that focuses on tired old indicators.

Thanks for reading and don’t forget to leave your comments below. Sorry for yet another crappy review.

I’ve been trading with Garath and nick for 10 years. The returns are a total percentage, of it says his alerts earned 1000% for example it doesn’t mean you earn 1000%, it will depend upon how much you put into the trade alerts. IE: I put 10% of my portfolio into each trade so I earn 100% for example. Whoever writes this BS review is misleading because he doesn’t understand what he or she is talking about. ?

Gareth is the truly the worst trader in the world. The reason how he is still in business is the poor members that keeps paying for poor service. Stay away. I agree with Jean. Here’s another example of the person you are paying for their expertise and breaking his own rules.

Here he gets in to amzn short with a defined stop $1213.41, so he enters a short and brags he’s in the money by $6, lmao, currently amzn is 1268.4, no stop out yet or at least from my viewpoint from their website. BTW this happens all the time with him.

I just noticed their options track record hasnt been updated since feb 2017. That tells me they dont want to report the horrible options that expired from shorting this market.

Beware and dont support their service or him for that matter.
My 2 cents.

As a long time member of, I found the education side of ITMS to be phenomenal. The problem is that the company is made of of two different individuals with two totally different trading styles. Most of the education comes from Nick but the majority of the trades come from Gareth. This can be very confusing for members as it often entails trades not conforming to the education. Gareth mostly tries to buy at the lows and short at the highs – going against the trend. Sometimes this works but often it does not. Targets and stops are given in the Research Center Alerts but are not adhered to.

Last year members started expressing concern on Trader’s Life, a 24/7 speak your mind part of ITMS and the response was to shut it down. The Open Positions list was not being maintained so it was very difficult to track what was open and what was closed. At the end of 2017 all open positions were closed leaving members on their own to try to work through major losses that amounted to 25 positions. “As stated, Chief Market Strategist Gareth Soloway closed all Research Center open positions into year end to offset capital gains.” (Posted Dec 28, 2:59 p.m.)

Although I am no longer a member it appears that this year is no different. Looking at the track record, you will see profits, but dig deeper. Is the Track Record up to date? Last year it wasn’t. In the past the Track Record was verified by a third party.; last year that seemed to stop.
How do I know; look at UCO 10/5/2016. Positions taken this year, like last year, do not seem to adhere to stops. Several that I found were as follows:
(1) BA short, Feb. 16, 2017, 12:46 pm – entry 170.07, stop confirmation above $186.75, target $150.
(2) FB short, Feb 17, 2017, 11:14 am – Average entry $130.81, stop confirmation above 141.55, target $115
(3) ADBE short, March 2, 2017, 3:38 pm – Entry $120, stop confirmation above $133.50, target $100
(4) MMM short Feb 24, 2017, 19:09 am – Entry 188.15, stop confirmation above $203.75, target $160.
Look at the current price of these equities. They were not stopped out; they are still open positions. These are just a few taken from the Research Center archives on the ITMS website.

Do your research. This is your hard earned money. I for one am no longer a member.

It is true that Gareth does not always abide by his stops which isn’t nice for newer traders as they have so much trust and belief. That said, the winners far out way the losers. I have been trading with them since 2014 and every trade that is posted on their track record I have received the email alerts as they happen. One when it was opened and one when it was closed. If anyone wants me to forward these on from my account just pick some trades at random from their closed positions and I will forward them on. You can also check the gmail email headers to verify the time stamps etc. The % winners are accumulative. Every trade is only meant to be 10% of your account, so to simply say, if you invest $10k then you would be up to $80k in year one is incorrect. That is not how it works. For instance NFLX
8.29%. You would have invested only $1000 and therefore your return would be $82.90, not $820.90 as your review suggests. The major thing that isn’t right with ITMS is the money management side, Gareth and Nick never sing the same song which makes it hard to navigate, the only thing I can suggest is to use their service as a guide, because I know that if I didn’t stop out when I should and left my positions open like Gareth I’d be in a mess. I don’t have the account size he has to stomach the loss. I use weekly chart close stops like Nick even if it’s Gareth’s trade. The real point to make here is that with good money management, ITMS does work, and the trades are correct I can assure you. I feel sorry for everyone that has lost so much money but for those that did trade with them from years you surely know that their track record is correct?

NVDA SHORT @ 54.18 with a stop at 68, and never stopping or covering. Now, the stock is at 117.32. Gareth should not be giving out stops if he doesn’t obide by them.

Nice review,

Was a member for 2 years but holding stocks with a loss of 50% and showing the outside world a great and outstanding track record is just BS.

Even the chat is dead, nick is never taking any trade and Gareth is just the cowboy…. holding day trades overnight…..

Now the only thing Bryan is doing is running verified investing. it is just another bs platform to promote ITMS.

Back in the days they where good but the money is more important than the members.

If you are holding Nvidea from 54…. and never cut your loss and than telling members I making millions in profit and just sell the thing at the end off the year is just BS BS BS BS BS BS

Gareth is a scam.

GBSN, multiple average day trade entries and a doubled down swing position, 100%loss.

ICLD, didn’t stop out on his own confirmation theory. 100%loss,

NVDA, 49.64 short and sits at 96 bux, still didn’t stop out of his confirmed above price months ago. almost -50%loss thus far.

QID, didn’t stop out when the market flushed to support. 2xETF will never recover, -16% loss so far.

VRX, -44% loss and still hasn’t stopped out below his stop price. should have stopped out 3 months ago

JPM short at 77, its at 85 bux, so he goes and shorts GS, BAC and others to average in this sector, all those under water of course. I could write a 10 page journal.

FAZ another short financial trade. -36% loss so far, 3x etf, nah lets never set rules to stop out of a clean uptrend. Even if financials crash this 3x won’t recover

These are two totally different websites, one being played against the other. These are NOT verified trades of ITMS. They are separate trades given to followers of Verified Investing. Verified Investing trades are stopped out; ITMS trades are usually not. There is more going on here than meets the eye. Do your research!!

Thanks for finally writing a truthful review about these guys. I was unfortunately a member with them for 2 years, and what you said is absolutely 100% correct. I only wish it didn’t take me so long to finally figure it out. But it does go to show that there is a sucker born every minute.

Hi Emmett, I lost a fortune listening to these assholes. They post fake reviews all over the internet and to the nieve, such as I was, it is very easy to be suckered into their BS. How the hell could what these scumbags are doing, be legal? I wonder what Gareth would do if one morning he woke up, looked in the mirror, and realized he was scum.

Ive actually made money from their calls on swings and options and in their room. They post and close everything on their website, what ive noticed is that sometimes they can bury a few losers by not closing them for a while which is understandable if they took proper position size but somebody hoping for another 10% winner and loaded his account would be pissed off.

Seems like that is how you should start every review judging from the oh last 10 reviews you have done…not much has changed out there.
I found the review just barrels of laughter and very curious if people actually fall for this ” shit show”

The low-brow “Millionaire Methodology” term on their site was a dead giveaway of a scam, although that shtick appeals to one type of demographic into day trading.

There’s a more sophisticated and academic price action scammer type persona that is more insidious and harmful..a hidden cancer that must be excised, looking forward to your reviews of the high-brow price action scammers.

Entertianment and humor is good at times, but when you think about the losses these scammers are inflicting on people and the profits they are making at the same time it loses its humor quickly. We need swift and decisive action against the frauds who are profiting the most and who operate under a veil of competency and legitimacy.
