Trade Out Loud
Anka Metcalf of Trade Out Loud claims that if you give her $4,995, she will quickly teach you to make $500 per day trading futures. The only problem is that she has absolutely no verifiable track record of ever trading successfully.
Is a very aggressive webinar promotor making outrageous claims of massive profits, an 87% win record, earning $300k+ per year day-trading, and teaching you “how to live the trader lifestyle.” Claims that you will be able to quit your day job and fulfill all of your financial dreams through her 30-day learning program.
Anka Metcalf was thoroughly uncooperative with TradingSchools.Org and made multiple lame excuses why she cannot verify her trading results.
A ridiculous charlatan looking to fleece the naive and the desperate. Avoid.

In addition to being active on social media, Anka Metcalf also purchases many promotional webinars through various promotional channels. These are companies that specifically market to retail traders in the form of paid promotional webinars. Anka pay’s a flat fee, and then the promotional company blasts out hundreds of thousands of emails to people who are looking to “earn money at home” or “looking to learn how to trade.” These companies have absolutely no vetting process and could care less if the product is real or fraudulent.

Some examples of these ‘shady’ companies include:
You may have noticed that the each of these companies is promoting a webinar that is tailor made to the newbie trader. The promotional video is specific, that Anka Metcalf will show you how to turn a $5k futures trading account into a $500 per day income. In fact, on her many promotional videos, she claims that nearly everyone that participates, within thirty days of her training…will be earning a 6-figure annual income.
Her promotional videos are replete with wonderful examples of how you can finally quit your day job and easily earn $500 per day. That you will no longer have to drive to work every day. That you will be able to buy a vacation home and live the lifestyle that you have always dreamed of.
Supposed performance claims of Anka Metcalf
Anka Metcalf makes some amazing performance claims about herself. She claims to be a full time, professional trader and former prop trader with a “big company.” But whom is this prop
company? We are left to guess. According to Finra.Org, Anka Metcalf has never been registered in any capacity with any regulatory body. She appears to have simply and mysteriously appeared on the internet as a professional trading coach sometime in 2012.
She also claims a truly amazing track record of “100% authentic trading results”. In a most recent webinar recorded by a TradingSchools.Org reader, Anka Metcalf claimed to have already earned hundreds of thousands of dollars in only the 1st quarter of 2017. When asked for an account statement of these results, she refused and created a ridiculous excuse that account statements could be easily photoshopped. That we could not trust actual statements from anyone because of photoshopping.
That we could not trust actual statements from anyone because of photoshopping.
In addition to the lame excuse of not being able to provide verifiable account statements, she also is making some extremely outrageous and downright fraudulent claims, including:
- Never had a losing year at trading.
- Claims to have a fully audited track record of 87% winners.
- Outrageous yearly trading results of $300k+ per year
Complaints from TradingSchools.Org readers
In the past two years, TradingSchools.Org has received 9 complaints about Anka Metcalf. The complaints range from mildly upset to EXTREMELY upset. The number one complaint regarding the stock trading signals service is that she will use a “soft stop” or a discretionary stop. In other words, at the end of the trading day, she would report winning trades, but there was no way to authenticate whether she was stopped out, or held a winning trade.
The biggest complaint of the futures signal service is that she uses multiple profit targets. So at the end of the trading day, if the market was a trend day, then she would report the highest possible profit per trade.
TradingSchools.Org has witnessed this sort of chicanery before. Where wins and losses are cleverly disguised and hard to pindown. The only way to verify the actual trading results are to authenticate actual trading account statements. And Anka Metcalf has absolutely no interest in showing actual trading account statements.
A tale of two emails
TradingSchools.Org sent Anka Metcalf an official request to review her trading service. We really wanted to know if her claims of earning $500 per day trading futures were real or grossly fraudulent misrepresentations? We wanted to verify the supposed amazing swing trading alerts that reported massive yearly profits of $300k+ per year. Unfortunately, Anka Metcalf refused to engage with TradingSchools.Org. However, we embed all of your emails with tracking links and we can confirm that she opened and read our requests to review multiple times, from a location in Boca Raton, Florida.
We also sent another email to Anka Metcalf. But this email was sent from one of our many ‘persona’ emails accounts. These are emails that we send to a trading vendor, where we act like an older retired gentleman and we are desperately seeking to learn how to trade. Where we play a game that we are a newbie and we really want to learn how to trade and that we desperately need to earn that $500 per day that she promises in her webinars. Anka Metcalf is more than willing to speak with a newbie, know-nothing person with money to send her. But the very moment you ask for proof of her supposed trading success…her demeanor quickly changes from friendly to downright slippery. Excuses galore! Explanations like, “read my reviews” or “account statements can be photoshopped.”
It’s all pure nonsense.
Wrapping things up
Anka Metcalf is a very good salesperson. She knows just enough to sound authoritative and believable. And this is where many fall into her trap. People that know very little are easily softened and pressed. They want so badly to believe that you can “Earn $500 Per Day With A $5K Trading Account.” They willfully suspend common sense in the obscure hope that they can finally quit their miserable job at the pencil sharpening factory for the dream lifestyle of being a professional day trader. For most, it is a dream that quickly turns into a nightmare.
