Summary

Paul Scolardi is the real deal. As much as we attempted to pick him apart, we simply could not find any BS with this guy. A real supertrader.

Pros: Where else can you spend a small amount of money and watch a millionaire trader ply his trade? Having access is a privelage for anyone looking to learn and earn, yet willing to work hard.
Cons: Paul usually takes multiple positions in a stock, which can be hard to track and emulate. He also uses mental stops and mental profit areas. You are left to fend for yourself in this area, which is the only reason why I gave him a 3.5 user experience. Clearer exits would be beneficial.

Is Superman Trades Really So Super?

The following review is for superman trades, a day and swing trading advisory that specializes in stocks, and is managed by Paul Scolardi. I originally read about Paul Scolardi on Twitter in and about 2008. He seemed like a know it all pushing stories on stocks and preaching how awesome he was performing. I remember thinking that his posts were hot headed internet nonsense, classic stock trader puffery. About once a year, a random trader would send me a message asking if I had ever heard of a guy named Paul Sclolardi and that he calls himself Superman? That he trades stocks like a superhero and is selling an advisory type service. I remember thinking to myself, what sort douche bag would think so highly of himself that we would take upon the name of the worlds greatest superhero. Why did he have to steal superman’s name, why not come of with his own superhero name? Maybe something like Stock Picker Man, or Awesome Stocks Ninja Master, or Wall Street Wonder Women. Anyway, I didn’t take this guy seriously, not even one bit. Just another internet loudmouth pushing his stock picks. I mean really, he was pushing out twitter posts proclaiming yet another $10,000 or $30,000 day, who believes this nonsense? And if he was making so much money, then why even bother selling a $200 a month advisory? It made no sense.

The Truth Begins To Emerge

In 2013, I noticed that he joined Investimonials and began reporting his live trades. What is Investimonials? It is a website where actual brokerage statements from TD Ameritrade and Interactive Brokers accounts can be submitted directly from the broker, and the information is culled out of a brokerage account and posted in all of its ugliness or awesomeness, for the entire world to see. No chicanery. Investimonials was a real game changer for the investment education industry because it exposed a lot of frauds, and also allowed the real traders to start receiving the respect that they deserved. And so, in Paul Scolardi’s case, I simply watched his trades for a few months. He trades in some obscure names, went both long and short, added to winning positions, added to losing positions, did not mess with penny stocks and stayed in the mainstream markets.  He was trading big stocks, little stocks, high volume and low volume, there was no apparent bias. He is not a Timothy Sykes type position trader that sniffs out penny stock pump and dump schemes and then specializes in shorting. No, Paul’s method was more mainstream. And so, in 2014 I decided to take the plunge and join the live trading room.

The Trading Room Experience

The trading room is moderated by Paul and a few of his proteges, whom have also proven themselves to be pretty good traders, as verified by trading statements. However, I was only interested in what Paul was trading, I just wanted to copy his trades and make money. I didn’t want to follow anyone else, just the guru. I found the room is to be well managed and in comparison to be quite lively and entertaining to ponder the day’s events. However, keep in mind, that I mainly screen record trading rooms. And I typically will have about 6 different computers all recording different trading rooms. My assistant will later go back into the raw footage and time stamp when trades were called for entry and for exit.

Types Of Trades

What we discovered with Paul is that he has three different types of trades. The first would be the classic news scalp. The second would be a chart pattern swing trade. And the third and most interesting would be the fundamental position trade. All three compliment each other quite nicely, but be aware that you have to be ready to quickly to pull the trigger quickly on the news scalps. A few trades, he was in and out very fast and sometimes had quickly banked over $10,000 in profit so quickly that I could hardly believe what I was seeing. The Second type of trade would be the chart pattern swing trades.

The chart pattern swing trades were interesting in that Paul would take a large position, and then he would add to the position. Even adding to a a losing position, which is counter intuitive and many would say is crazy, but Paul would add up to two additional positions on top of the original position. Some of these swing trades would last a few days. He would take a portion of profits, let it run and take more off, then attempt to take off the last portion on a parabolic move in his favor. He would use mental stops and not allow his big exit stop orders to be exposed to other trades. He would also say things like, “I will exit in this area” or “I will take a loss in this area”. This can be confusing and irritating for someone attempting to copy his trades. However, one cannot argue with the end result, and the end results are all verified. The guy just makes money.

The third and final type trade are Paul’s fundamental type trades. Understand the Paul is a former accountant and apparently won some corny award for best CFO in his state. Which is great, but hardly applicable to trading, or at least I thought. Apparently Paul finds it interesting to carouse thorough obscure SEC filings and balance sheets, looking for god knows what. He also uses some very odd news sources to gather information. On one particular trade, he referenced a Taiwanese news blog, which to me looked like an amateur attempt at reporting the news. I would never base a trade on such flimsy reporting. He even gets trade ideas from Newsmax, which is just a cess pool of nonsense and political propaganda. But whom and I to say what works? I remember reading that the famous trader, Victor Niederhoffer, that his favorite source for trading ideas came from the National Enquirer.

Results Are All That Matters

Superman Trades Performance

Over $3,000,000 in VERIFIED PROFITS since June 2011.

At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is performance. Opinions cannot feed your family. You have to take a position and then hope for good results. The bottom line is that we closely watched and live recorded Superman Trades for a full two months, and we followed his brokerage statement and twitter posts for an entire year. He made over $1,000,000 in 2014. An amazing feat. And definitely worthy of super status.

What Matters Most

In my opinion, the truest and most useful evaluation method is to jury the students. Sure, we know that Paul trades, and we know that he is an excellent trader. But he has been doing this for 17 years, can he teach us neophytes his methods. Can this fisherman teach us to fish?

Well, in early 2014, Paul sent out an email for his one and only live education course. Of course, it looked like every other course on the internet, all promising the riches of King Midas. You know exactly what I am talking about right? Anyway, I did not purchase. Now lets jump forward to November 2014 and Tim Sykes of Investimonials holds a conference in Las Vegas on investing in penny stocks. Paul Scolardi gave an hour speech which was highly entertaining. During the speech he revealed that several of those students that took the course back in January 2014 had all earned over $200,000 in profits trading Pauls methods.

Not only did I verify the students and their performance, but I also visited there personal blogs and found out their stories. I was amazed. Not because they were able to make a profit by following Paul’s trades, but because they had taken the base of what Paul had taught and come up with their own “special sauce”.

It is truly amazing when a trading educator proves his worth and ability to this degree, it is nearly a miracle that he is able to teach others his methods, and then turn the students into their own unique success stories. I have to take my hat off to you Paul, you truly are a superman trader.

Superman is a pumper..all stocks he trades are super low volume and low float. Buys them first, then alerts, then tweets and then comes an article about them

stock does 50k volume per day, He buys some then alerts…huge orders come in due to the sheep following him. since there are not much size available on the offer, sheeps market orders cause stock to spike

when stock spikes due to no liquidity.. you will see…234% from my alert ..lol

Sykes has same business model

yes, i was in superman and prepromo at the same time; mcnasty would watchlist some of supermans alerts and characterize superman’s seeking alpha as the promo and his sell alert as the dump

He partners with Jim Cramer the worst sheep- pumper -scammer on the Planet- that alone is enough to make me ill. super guy is a liar like cramer- it’s all pump and dumps and only the first in wins and he is mastering the first in and nothing more. Very arrogant rude unprofessional I wouldn;t give this joker a penny. just look at Cramers track record RH, MU, DPZ, and so many others. One must wonder why they need sheep to buy subscriptions if they are so rich. EGO this follower nation is crap – it’s a new twist on… Read more »

I am really starting to question your research. I joined this site and found your review missed the mark completely. He is calling low float stocks, The alerts here are late, he is calling low float stocks and he is manipulating prices higher by doing so. Do I think he really trades? Against his members, yes. You can not duplicate his success, nor can you learn how to trade like he does because he wouldn’t get the results he has without his following. One day I was in the room a stock with 30,000 traded an hour after the open… Read more »

I was a part of the protege program for a year. Cost was $5,000 In the program you get access to the following for a year: – Bootcamp videos of an online bootcamp that he held in 2014 (lifetime access – I have yet to try access after the program ended for me) – Two webinars per week – Access to his chat room Before I talk about those, first I want to talk about signing up. Before I signed up for the program, I had also asked about Tim Sykes program as well. I ended up deciding to go… Read more »

Did you even review the chat room? What a load of bs review.
This guy has been scamming for years with his lo float manipulation stocks from the lion.com site which is infamous for frontloaded stocks being pumped there.
This review and site possibly bankrolled by Superman or his ilk.

Great point Emmett! How many traders out there have had your stop hit bit 1 or 2 ticks and then the market reverse for a huge winner without you?… I know I have and its one of the most psychologically frustrating things to deal with as a trader. Just like Emmet, I will place an emergency “OMG, my computer just crashed and my phone service died! I have to get out of this trade or i’m gonna lose a crap ton of money today!” stop far below the market at my maximum tolerable daily loss level. Then I will have… Read more »

Hi emmet
I see on another review you wrote this:

” Now that we know Profit.ly can be gamed. We have to now call into question whether Superman is really so super. Is he really making millions of dollars each year? I so badly want to believe. But since the profit.ly house is so obviously full of smoke, we cannot ignore that a fire exists”
What is your current thinking? It seems some of supermans trades would have been difficult for members to match in time, if I am reading you correctly?

John Smith

Emmett,

How about the criticisms that he?:

1) uses two accounts. one to front-run trades, one for Profitly
2) when he posts his picks, the stock price is already up significantly and users cannot make $

Seems like you may be going too easy and only surface deep. Might add clarification that you have no way of confirming or disproving these claims.

Best,

John

If the clowns on this site would like an ACTUAL review from someone who ACTUALLY did/is doing the program, then let me know. Plenty of speculation and rumors floating around, as there will always be when someone says that they make a ton of money doing something that not many people can.

Yes I would genuinely like an Actual review about profit.ly and about paul and tim sykes. Are their lessons and alerts actually legit? Is there a better less expensive way to learn how to spot small cap and micro cap stocks that are about to skyrocket? I do not know where to go to learn how to find out about these stock opportunities.

What’s up with this site? last post by Emmett was in Oct. 2015? In Aug 2015 he was saying he was about to release a revealing “quite interesting” new review on Scolardi. “You are going to be surprised” he said. It was (back in Aug 2015), to be coming out “in a few days”. But nothing ever came out……. wtf the toilet needs to be flushed on this industry and its hangers-on.

Count me as another vote for taking a second look at Paul Scolardi. He seems legit (‘verified’ on profitly, although I realize that you don’t give that any weight), but when I look at his website, with all the hype and exclamation points, it really has the look and feel of a scam. I’m not saying he is (or isn’t) a scammer, but looking at his website really makes me cautious. Back on 5/21/2015 in the comments section of the “profitly fake” review (https://www.tradingschools.org/profitly-fake/) Paul S. actually posted and said that he would be interested in having a conversation with… Read more »

Hi Emmett,

Excellent review as always.

In your experience with Super-trades. Do you know if Superman offers good video lessons of his strategies?
or does he only offers watch list and buy/sell points?

Because I want to learn from him. I don’t want to follow his trades only learn the strategies.

Thank you very much!

Michael
Guest
Hi Emmett, I am also in the same boat as Richard, I want to learn from Super Trades although I want to make sure he is legit and successful trader there is so much misleading information good and bad about everyone that it is hard sometimes to find out what is real and what is not. I’m not about the alerts I want to know if through the video lessons you can learn his strategy and can kind of get you going in your own path without following his alerts. I want to thank you for posting this information out… Read more »

Just the fact that Paul is directly/indirectly associated with the Carnival Barker “Tim Sykes” is of major concern. Sykes comes across as way to “pathetic” to take any affiliations seriously. I JUST reached out to Paul only to have a “sykes” affiliate reach out…dunno, seems like Slim Shady is on the house. MM

DO NOT Buy it…he will just sell you all his material and then give you weekly webinars..100% not worth it..there is not method and there is not strategy…just pump and dumps…

Wow was surprised to see that review of superman! Glad you revised it because the guy is a charlatan. I followed him enough to know he uses the same techniques as Tim Skyes. With the possible exception of Michael Goode & Tim Grittani anyone associated with Skyes is scum. Grittani does sell overpriced DVDS though. I used Skyes service and it was a typical front running operation. You can never get in at this same price and he would justify it buy calling them “earnings winners”. He waits for volume to dry up then buys a big chunk of shares… Read more »

He looks and sounds real, but he is affiliated with Tim Skye’s . Why on earth a legitimate trader want to associate himself with a scam artist like Tim is beyond me, but I had to skip his service for that reason alone.

@Emmett,

You have mentioned doing an update since Aug. Any update on that update??

Guest
I have studied some of Tim Sykes DVDs and I also participate in his chat room. I have seen him get out of plenty of trades before they even went anywhere close to where he predicted. I have seen him lose on trades that went up way further. Many of his students actually call out the trades before he does. His DVDs have been excellent as have his webinars. For all of you idiots saying you can’t get in at the same price as the traders, of course you can’t. They are buying a momentum stock and then alerting. By… Read more »

Hey Brian yea your right but if you look closely at how it works when Tim or anybody else alert these low float momo trades they tend to move when you have thousands of there subscribers chasing it up. the gurus then sell there shares into that spike, why do you think tim keep saying sell into spikes. you have to remember for every buyer there is a seller. I personally think Tim is a sly pump and dump artist. I was watching one of tim grittani Vegas conference an he also openly state sometimes he scalp those trades that… Read more »

Scott, If you wanted Emmett to review this trading room you should post in review request. Posting here makes it look like scam advertisement. I love these YouTube videos cherry picking a chart and showing how much money you can make and their made up results. If they could really trade profitable they would say this: 1) We show our DOM and/or Charts with clear entry, targets and stop loss before any trade is called, 2) We keep accurate accounting of the trades we call on a daily basis, which are the real results with slippage, 3) We show our… Read more »

He also contradicts himself – all trades need stop loss – I limit my losses on every trade to the amount of commission plus 1 cent – yes either the trade works or it goes against you and the minute it goes 1 cent against me I’m out. don;t be surprised for one of these clowns to add my technique to their next hype concert and take credit for it as their own original idea. Also these rants are all the same – all hype and smoke screens that do nothing but sucker people into paying to be further lead… Read more »

Hi Emmett, I never signed up with Super Trades and not planning on it in the future. But saw the tweets about his bankruptcy filings and thought I’d take a closer look. In case you haven’t already, check out his reported earnings from trading in 2008 and 2009 from his bankruptcy filing. View post on imgur.com Those figures from 2008 and 2009 are combined income from both his corporate job and trading. Even if you back out an assumed $120k/year from his corporate job, it’s still a very respectable income from part time trading — since it looks like he… Read more »

What a load of crap review! I bought this subscription based on your recommendation. You have nothing bad to say about the guy? Really? Then you are still the same old con artist you always have been! I bought this subscription based on this positive review. Guess what? I lost my ass and his performance is entirely misrepresented. YOU OBVIOUSLY, PLAIN AS DAY, NEVER EVEN WENT INSIDE THIS CHAT ROOM. If you did then you should have easily seen what was going on here. I used 3 other services on here, all 1 star reviews.

My only question is, who takes the time to write a negative review in which you accuse someone of having “never been in this guys chatroom” but take no time to describe how his remarks about Paul’s program differ from your own experience. Furthermore, the only thing you said about the program at all is that you lost your ass, which can be attributed to a lot of things including you being a bad trader. Finally, you accuse Emmett of being paid by Paul to give him a positive review and come out of nowhere with another random site to… Read more »

Not to mention the guy that you claim is telling the truth on profit.ly with $500,000 profits on single trades and multiple $100,000+ gains is filing bankruptcy.
