While on vacation the past two weeks I decided to give some deveoted attention to the SA opportuinty. I have been trading on line since august and signed up with SA about 6 weeks ago. Still reading and trading of course. However, while you were in the chat room during your vacation you asked if anyone had followed you into ICGE. I did not say it then but I will now, I did and I am glad I did. I bought at 146 and sold (in violation of the SA rule) at 196 (cost me about 10K). Keep the bar high to weed out the "something for nothing" crowd. Your methonds are ingenious. You force subscribers to either go away or get rich! Keep up the good work.

I just wanted to drop by and say hello.. I get a kick out of reading all the emails that you sent me.. people whinning about their heads getting chopped off because they want to be traders!

I have been trading for about 2 years right now... just like all beginners i got my ass kicked.. blew 2 accounts in about 3 months.. took some time to reflect on my mistakes and everything has been ok afterwards.. i was making decent money... but everthing changed after i joined your service,, sometime i make more money in a day than someone could make in a year! I read some of your testamonials,, and thought it was too good to be true.. I didn't think i would ever be writing this email to you and telling you how you have impacted me as a trader.. you showed me how to fish.. no just provide me with the fish.. I love CHAOS now... i love it when people panic and sell their shares because they don't have enough DD... i just go in and scoop it all up!!

I think the most valuable lesson that you have taught me would be controlling FEAR and GREED... buy when the dogs sell,, and sell when the dogs buy! simply awesome statement!

best regards,

Thank you, went long on gblx based on your call @ 25 1/2 about 10 weeks ago, still long and having great day.

I'm one of those newbies who will never be a great trader (got a bad case of the buyhiselowsies), but your calls are so good I can research em ,chart em, watch em, buy em and hold em. A simple solution that serves me well.

What's up with lois law (lois) my dd says great story as the only pure play as a B2B in the legal prfession. Stock goes up on no volume, just like my lawyers bill???

Charity - my check for $200 will be in the morning mail, thanks for the opportunity to help those who truly need help.

Keep up your good work, TJ and thanks again.

Subject: thank you

Dear Joe:

I became your member 3 months ago. I learned a lot from you. I also appreciate what you have picked. 95 % of your picks are great. What I need is patience. The most impressive pick was USWC. You gave this company when it was traded at 4-5 range. I jumped in at the moment. I paid 5 1/8. Next day, I cut loss sold at 4 3/8 with a few thousands lost. But after a while, I did a little bit research about this company and I was getting like this company. One important factor is that the insider was buying their shares. Ok, so I reentered USWC in November 4. I bought 5000 shares. My cost is around 5 dollars. It was a BIG thanksgiving gift as I sold my all shares following Thanksgiving at 22. I made 85,000. I am so happy. I'd like to thank you. How many picks Joe made run up huge in a short time? I think 95% at least.

Good luck to your family

Date: 12/9/99 7:40:07 PM Eastern Standard Time


I am still a schmuck and have a lot to learn still, but below is what you have given me in the last 30 days.

CLRS in at 37.50 now 61.00
RSII in at 26.00 now 51.63
WEBS in at 12.50 now 16.69
RMKR in at 16.63 now 26.69
CNQR in at 27.00 now 33.88

Thanks so much. I am up $30K in the last 3 days. The ONLY reason my account balance isn't higher is because I have not done the stop loss properly in the past (ZANY, SSPE, PFSW, etc.) I am a believer, especially from reading all the other email from SA members making the same mistakes, but learning. The most frustrating part is not having the money to participate in the "new winners" because I'm holding the "old dogs".

Couldn't make the first seminar but can hedly wait for the next one.

Keep up the great work. Your abilities are unbelievable.

Thanks again,

Thanks for the inrs, cnrs, yhoo, etc. ( ones that come to mind as I write, but there are so many over the past six months+/-) Been with your service for (can't remember how long) but long past due to write the thank you! Bought the shares the 'smucks' sold early, and as usual, the short term growth outweighed the risk. When DD kicked in, I sold and rebought at a lower price. Bottom line up huge %.

I hope that all are getting your message on DD and reacting with diligence, although I appreciate the buys I was able to get during their untimly sell offs on your picks. I will take the sells and buy in many cases along with many others, I am sure.

I have been a member of SA for about a month, just got my second bill, and paid it laughing. In the beginning I was a little concerned, things worked out great for the first week or so, then it turned around. However, as I am a greedy fearfull schumuck, I listened to your advices and held tight. Drank about 10 bootles of maalox for my stomach.

I am very happy to tell you that in the end everything turned out great, I am up 45K since joining, a 65% return in about a month, being 10K today on RMKR and INTM, wanted to play PERL but was out of cash, who said life was fair???

Funny thing, some of your picks take while to come true, but after a month, I learned that patience pays, in a handsome way.

Please let me know when SATT will be up and running, using Prudential Securities and E-TURD, they are very lousy, too slow, no short availability and unreliable for fast moving stocks, the kind you can make a killing or get killed.

I was unable to participate in the first seminar, had to go to brazil for a biz meeting, but as soon as you plan another one, I will be there.

Thank you TJ, you are da man.

It would be much appreciated if the super successful would share the trades that accomplished such strong returns in 6 weeks to 18 months. I would be interested in seeing the movement in and out, the winners and losers, and the volume of most transactions. I am also working with $100,000 but for 3 months have only accomplished a 73% return. Not bad, but I want to get to the next level.

This could be a learning tool, maybe they would share with other members. Thanks and please respond.

Subject: Re: Thanks, return improved since I joined SA

Tokyo Joe:

Just a quick note to let you know that since I joined your investment club I have substantially improved the return of my portfolio.

I would also like to ask for some quick advise. I own ELNK and MSPG since they were at 45 and 27, respectively. They seem not able to break through 60 and 35, respectlively. Should I take profits now or wait. Apparently, the rally of the NASDAQ is almost over. Although some stocks continue to rally, profit taking in the vast majority of them has already started. The number of decliners is higher in all three major indices.

NYSE Adv/Dec +1,109 / -1,959
NASDAQ Adv/Dec +1,879 / -2,233
AMEX Adv/Dec +238 / -361
Have you heard anything in MSPG or ELNK that should make me keep them?

Glad you wrote this admonition, I've been feeling frustrated lately with the less than elementary level of education evident in the questions asked in the chat room. I'm not always sure about things either, but learned quickly the incredible value of the SA website. Besides that, I'd rather figure it out than demonstrate my idiocy by typing a question and risk you publicly calling me a f ng schmuck... I do have my pride, you know. ggg

I was also suprised/frustrated with a few inane questions you had to field at the seminar...

I was able to say hello to you (in the lunch line where I told you I couldn't stay for the afternoon session) and even though I missed the afternoon charting & L2 presentations, feel my trip was worthwhile because I was able to see and hear you think on your feet. My level of confidence in you was already high, but I think because as a psychologist, I make my best judgments about people by being around them, I needed to experience you in vivo. You have an unique and winning mix of bravado, humility, and enthusiasm!

Please keep scolding, coaching, nurturing, and briefly banning us as the need arises. You are onto something big here, not merely financial, but potentially paradigm-shifting. Your vision of a grass roots group of regular folks becoming a market force may be closer to reality than we know.

If you are thinking of a seminar on the West Coast (Bay Area); I've got a great connection for 5 star facilities/hotel in San Jose... For goodness' sake, that's where most of our profit comes from!

All the best to You & your family,


PS, I only joined in July; gained 100% through mid-Oct, then joined Chat, up 450% from 11/1/99 through today... Thank you, kind sir...

Even though I will not be there tomorrow (I observe the 7th day Sabbath), I am praying that you will have a great day. You have lots of knowledge to share, not only about investing but about the world, history, art, love etc. You will do well tomorrow!

I am eternally grateful for your kindness, compassion and sharing so generously of your knowledge. I have never spent $200 a month for education and learned so much. In another chat room for the past year, I lost beaucoup before SA, was down to less than $4000. I am now over $21,000 and listening carefully every day. I will let you know when I am even and making profit!

Good luck tomorrow, even with the geisha girls. LOL

Subj: A lesson and hope for newbies


I just wanted to write to you after everything that has happened to me in the last few days with your calls. I wanted to tell you my story and what has led me to this point. I have told this story in the chat channel for those who remember but I thought all the newbies might benefit!

I started, what I thought was, trading in April of this year. Up until then I did not know what bid, ask, short or, most importantly, what a stop loss was. I was coaxed into trading by my brother, who said he had the tip of the century in stocks for me. All I had to do was open an account and he would give me the tip. I opened an account with Datek and waited for the stock. A matter of fact it was 2 stocks that coming out, IPO's. The first came out in May, and I was told to buy at 60. That stock was TSCM. The other a few days later BNBN at 25. Needless to say you all know where they went after that and the $10,000.00 I started with became $900.00. It became the SHOCK of the century!

In June, pondering what to do next, I was watching CNBC to try and learn something so I could get my money back, and I heard TokyoJoe mentioned on the air that he was responsible for running up a stock. It caught my curiosity and I found his website. In July I joined as a regular member and as ditsy as I sound read three of the books listed. I poked a few current alerts and made a few dollars. Then going through the website more thoroughly I saw that he had an IRC channel so the first week of Sept. I joined. The first week on the chat channel, I took my $900.00 or so and I made back $8,000.00, mostly from a stock called CMRC & ENGA! Yes I had a few learning setbacks in Oct. with a few stocks ZANY, PDYN & PVSW, but I did not despair. I became smarter and more experienced and I overcame.

This leads me to this past week of trades. Having chosen winners like CNRS from 7, PFSW from 41, CLRS from 44, PLUS from 17, PUMA from 42, RMKR from 11 3/8 I am up $29,000.00 in 2 1/2 months. To me that is phenominal!

The learning experience in the chat channel is unmatched. I may talk alot but I always try to listen and learn from you as well as other SA members who are willing to help me. And I have learned that the more you curse, spit, yell, piss at us the more you like us and enjoy teaching us. I hope I didn't ramble to much here and for all those who do not know me, my name is ----------------Tiffany!

Thanks for everything TJ!

Have been with SA for about 9 mos now.

Started with limited capital and limited trading knowledge. Was in IRC before premium requirement, watched, listened, and learned.

Still made plenty of mistakes.

Recently have been very focused on 100-200 share lots of SA picks and taking profits (relentlessly).

Reached a personal milestone this week with profits of $10k+. From a previous high of $4.7k two weeks ago.

Subj: Testimonial

Just wanted to say thanks! After being up around 34K in june I was down 6K in November. I read about your service on a messageboard and check it out. I decided to give it a try and it turn out being one of the best moves I have made this year. By buying 100 - 200 shares of your recommended stocks I was able to make up that 6K loss plus add another 2K within a month. You are the real deal! Thanks again!


Date: Fri, 03 Dec 1999 09:59:12 -0500


Didn't think this would happen.

I lost 11K this year and was down to $900 three weeks ago. Scratched together 2K to play again. Today I am even and going green. My hands are shaking.

Big news for a little player.

Subj: One of the best decisions I ever made!

Dear Joe,
I have only been a member for about six weeks and I am still learning the ropes, especially in the chat room. I don't really feel qualified as of yet to interact to much, because there are so many who are much more knowledgeable that I am. I'm sure the time will come, but as of now I am trying to stay out of the way.

But I had to write and tell you how much I enjoy the membership. I learned about you on some bulletin boards and what I read went from one extreme to the other. Some were shouting "Tokyo Joe is a con artist getting rich off small investors with his pump and dump scam" others were saying you were "God"

I figured like most things that the truth was somewhere in the middle. People tend to believe whatever they hear without checking it out and then they parrot it to others with no consideration for the truth. So I took a chance and joined SA to judge for myself. Here is the conclusion I came to. (big deal right ggg)

First let me say that this was one of the best decisions I have ever made concerning my investing life!

Here is what I discovered:

At the beginning It took awhile to understand your e-mails and comments in the chat room, First I thought it was some kind of secret code that I had to learn, until I realized you just think faster than you type. It's almost like trying to learn another language! I thought ROFLMAO might mean either "buy" or "sell" the first time I logged on until I read the explanations of the acronyms on the website. but it's getting a lot easier everyday! A couple of times I went to look at a chart of a stock you mentioned only to get a "No such symbol in database." Then someone usually asked what symbol you meant to type and you retyped it.

A fair percentage of the calls you make are on stocks that have large floats and aren't really susceptible to manipulation by your alerts. And more often than not the stock moves in the direction you stated because you have taken the time to study it's force and intercept it's move.

People constantly ask the same questions like "Whats the target" as soon as the alert is given and are ready to push the sell button on the first small down move on a long term pick (Like RMKR). I may be wrong but doesn't that defeat the whole purpose of the long term calls?

On the momentum plays you clearly state in various ways " You decide when to get in or out, I have given you the ticket, take a ride if you want or don't jump in if your not comfortable, you need to make your own decisions on these calls like an adult" I cannot believe that anybody playing the alerts would expect you to ride a stock down as it tanked just because they don't stick with reasonable stops. (I confess though that I did that with ZANY.. LOL.)

In closing I just want to thank you for your research. I noticed that I get e-mails day and night, and I have an idea that you put 25 hours of work in a 24 hour day. Unfortunately as much as you say for us members to do "Due Diligence" I think many of us want you to do all the heavy lifting and we just reap the benefits of your labor.

You constantly tell us to check out the calls ourselves with DD because we will be rewarded with high percentage returns if we study the charts and research the stocks. That reminds me of another person who said the same thing and your in good company!

"He who has a lazy hand becomes poor, But the hand of the DILIGENT makes rich!

Proverbs 10:4 (King Solomon)

I intend to continue my membership and also transfer my account from Datek when you start the brokerage.

Thank you Mr. Parks!

Subj: Full Circle Date:

Joe, I bought a stock at 4 1/2 last september. I averaged down to 2 3/4 then joined SA. I ended up with 6000 shares till I ran out of money. The stock went to 2.

I em'd you when I first joined. i asked you about that stock and you told me "use sa rules", "use your judgement", and "look at the chart". I did and em'd you back that I thought the stock still looked good. I sold it all at 2 3/4 and at a sizeable loss finally after reading the whole website, especially the parts about stop loss.

That stock was VONE, and you know what it did today. That 6000 shares would have gone from 16,500 to 96,000 today. I should be pissed.

Truth is, I turned the 16,500 into 175,000 by getting out and playing sa picks. Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.

Dear TJ -

I made $25,000 in the last couple weeks since joining your service (This includes the mistakes I made ). I'm sure this is not alot compared to many of your members, but I think its pretty good as a start! I started w/ email membership, but since then have upgraded to the premium membership - makes alot of difference. I'm really enjoying the "trading room" - watching - listening - learning as you suggest one does in the beginning (i cannot resist small trades here and there).

I especially like the fact that you keep in mind to give to charity - its easy to get wrapped in MONEY & TRADING and to forget about the less fortunate.

Also - if you are ever in Philadelphia area - you are a special guest for the best home cooked Pakistani food you'll ever have (you can't get any better in any of the fancy restaurants in NY!!).

I too would be interested in a video or CD of the upcoming SA Seminar.

BTW, I've been a premium member for for about 4 months and have learned a great deal. Your picks and advice are priceless...I've been trading for a year now, but joining SA has greatly improved my consistency. I am now averaging $1k/day...I'm not a high roller(yet) and trade from work, but I'm growing my capital for that day, when I will leave the corporate ladder b.s. behind and trade full time. Trading is the only thing that can provide the freedom to enjoy life...the time and money to travel, learn, live and experience it all. You have been an excellent mentor!

I'm looking forward to joining the SATT brokerage.

Subject: Oct/Nov Performance (Testimonial)

I just spent several hours going over your emails over the last couple months. (I saved about 95% of them--over 1000!) I pulled up a two month chart on all your picks and couldn't believe the results. I didn't write down exact stats, but I would conservatively estimate that about 75% made impressive to phenomenal runs at some point, another 15% went nowhere and the other 10% were losers (which would have been stopped out if proper exits were observed.) If anyone questions your results, and they have also saved emails, I would encourage them to do the same as I did. (It also helped me to understand your selection method.)

Another thing I noticed was that the stocks that you sent several emails on were typically the ones that moved the most. (ZANY seems to be the lone exception.) Some people would say that these stocks moved because you manipulated them with your recommendations, but no one, no matter how influential, can manipulate individual stocks over a period of months. It just doesn't happen.

Unfortunately, I missed out on most of those moves, and only profited on about $1,000 from a couple picks. Time to start trading 100-share lots. Thanks again!

Your stock analysis and recommendations are direct and straight to the point. I truly appreciate your service. The majority of my investments after joining SA have been very profitable and am currently up 30% since joining SA two months ago. I have been able to do this while working 60 hour weeks as a consultant design engineer by using stops. I still have not decided if I would do better if I was trading full time.

Thank you for your service. Your emails are especially helpful. I use everyone as my seed for dd. It is great that they are strait to the point and there is no need to read fluff! who really has time for that!?

The time I am able to spend in the chat room in eves and weekend is also very helpful. Wish you had your seminar in Miami, I would have been there! I am currently holding clrs,rmkr,ispd and a bit of zany.

Subj: thank you


I have been trying to make some money in the stock market for the last 5 months. I read all the books on TA and day trade, bought a ton of software and subscribed to newsletters, magazines, journals and websites.

I read a lot of posts of message boards that mentioned your name, but was unable to find your website. Untill I read a message that had link to TokyoJoe.com and joined. Of all the thousands and thousands that I spent so far, your website has been the best investment I had made so far.

The chat room and your picks have saved me from hours and hours of (almost) futile search for good picks. The first pick i played was JNIC last week. To tell the truth, my confidence was a little shaken at first, I got in @94 for 1K shares and got stoped out @88. I decided to give it another try got another 600 @ 72 1/4, what an awesome ride.

Today with CLRS JNIC and ECTX, i got all my money back with a vengeance

Thank you man

You are da best.

Thanks for the JNIC heads up....and especially the encouragement this morning to hold tough. I already owned some at 79 and tried to buy more at 73, but my brokerage account was overloaded and could not process it in time. (wish I had had level2). Also your instintive pick of CLRS was one of the best I have seen. I wasn't as convinced of your abilities when I first came to the service....but I am slowly learning to listen....and trust. Trust was the hard part...but I also realized it was my responsibilty to manage the trades after purchase. The people that expect you to give them buy points and sell points should spend a little more time learning about the market and less time expecting you to hold their hands. Thanks for the hard work!

Signed up on Thursday. Needles to say that I've been trading on and off for several years while continuing my real job. I decided several weeks ago to give this a chance and see what I can do. I was OK, except like most I was fighting myself and not the trade. I had read several times about the SA group and decided "What the Fuck do I have to lose"? It `s bills I can trade through 2 bills in a nano second. So, I join SA, in order to see what happens. Watched you and the rest of the folks trade tips, etc., and I decide buy your picks,,CRLS (saw the weekend news on it) NITE, JNIC, OMGA . Needles to say, am up in 3 days what I would have been up in a month. Not to shabby!!!! I like the Sa`s approach to investing. Your people don`t take any BS, which is very good. Anyway, please use this letter as a token of my appreciation to you and the SA`s.... Thank You for your great insight and investing technique....

I am , as you would say "a newbie" to your site. I joined 1 week ago. I have already made $4000.00 following your recommendations. Just before I joined I bought 1000 shares of SGNT at $18.50. Your recommendations have been working out quicker then I expected. Should I hold SGNT or sell off and follow you? Or should I hold for the expected breakout like I did when PPRO was at $28.50?

Date: 11/8/99 4:58:35 PM Eastern Standard Time


YOU ARE THE FUCKING MAN! Seriously, I've learned so much from you & SA it makes me shiver! I went full time (daytrading) exactly 6 months ago. I immediately signed up with Executioner & loved the lightning fast executions (by the way can't wait for SA trading tool). I was super conservative when I first quit my fathers 25 year old business - tough to do! I knew I could make more money following SA, so I did it (I quit).

Well, to make a long story short for the first 7 weeks I was questioning myself for doing what I did (quitting). I was down 7.4% over all, I found out quickly that I was being to conservative! Now I learned to go for it!

Well, - 7 weeks being down 7.4%...now just 19 weeks later, I've got this figured out! I'm currently up 74.3%!!!! I'm so damn happy...that's not including this week - JNIC was a super winner today, but I'm still holding majority of the shares! I bought my first shares of JNIC at 86 1/2...bought another 100 at 81 1/2 & finally the last lot at 73 this morning, I listened to your every move & now I'm up & feel so good about what I did! Normally I would have stopped out & been kicking myself when I saw it start to go without me! So, I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!!

I've learned a lot! I learned to paper trade after quitting your job...even after you have traded before, take a break & never jump right into it! Oh, I have been up for 11 weeks in a row! Then I went on vacation to Florida & ended up not being able to concentrate as well as I normally do & that killed that streak! Oh well another lesson learned~ never trade while on vacation unless you have the time to dedicate to it!

Thank you very much, I deeply appreciate everything you've done for me & the rest of SA!

Thanks for the great picks of late. I'm however feeling overwhelmed by the quanity of picks that I am receiving. I'm doing my research on all the picks u send me and then I try to decide which ones make the most sense. I was wondering if you had any suggestions on how to filter through your selections .

I had a great week. Rode DTLK from 13 to 22. Rode SGNT from 13.5 to 18 and TSFM from 42 which I am still holding. I will probably dump it before earnings are released. Flycast and DCLK both sold off after earnings were released. Seems the street doesn't like companies who aren't showing a profit even when they have huge revenue gains.



Date: 11/6/99 11:40:30 AM Eastern Standard Time

Hi Joe, I am curious about the hedge fund that you had mentioned opening. Is there any more news on its development? I have MUCHO faith that your fund will kick ass and prove to be a leader. Also, This H&Q IPO fund I would also like to get involved in that. Will you please send me more info on it?

Joe, more praises from another schmucko who finally got the balls to fire his broker and start listening to a real pro. You are my GURU!!! The ol' "SWAMI OF STOCKS!!!"

Since I started following your advise in September, My assets have climbed over 400%. I used to be afraid to tell my wife how my trading was going since I was loosing so much. NOW I am afraid to tell how my trading is going so she won't start spending all of the money I am making!!!

Thanks from a former member, soon to be a current member thanks to one of your picks in October.

i was down over 70% at the start, made some really bad trades, common newbie mistakes, too greedy, no control, etc., etc. But after learning patience, controlling losses and learn sell for a profit and to mimimize losses, i made all my money back and then some. i was stuck in the 90-100k range for the longest time about 3 months, but finally broke though within the last week, on iwov, rdwr, jnic, and jcda. now heading toward 200. thanks again

Dear TJ:

Just want to say "Thank you."

I am a SA member for more than 6 months now and had learned a lot from you since joining. The most important lesson I learned is how to be disciplined and not be greedy. Greed is probably the worst enemy of all day traders. I usually set a target on how much I want to make on a day or a week and will try to stick with it. Once my target is met I will exit that position and will not look back. Sure those stocks I sold may still go higher, like many of the calls you made, like cmcr, isld, hsac, bvsn, etc.., but there are so many other great companies / stocks available. I learned not to chase and not to blame myself for letting go of a stocks too soon. I believe "watching" you in the chat room and learning the way you trade are indeed a good lessons for all of us newbies.

Thanks again. You are a good teacher indeed ( minus all the "F" words that is :) ggg)

As I hide behind the veil of the internet, it is hard to believe I am having sincere feelings about someone who has affected my life so much, yet someone I have never met or seen. I have followed you on SI since Feb. '98, and joined Nov. '98. You have proved to be an inspiration and an excellent teacher. I am up a modest (by SA standards) 200% this year, and could not have done it without you and SA.

Above all, I see that SA is built on the trust and honesty that you have instilled through you actions and thoughts. I appreciate your take on life, Zen, and the big picture. I will continue to watch, learn, and hopefully profit from the knowledge you and SA provide everyday.

Thank you...I hope someday to meet you.

I'll make this short and sweet. Through your service I have made more money then you can imagine.

I started out in Feb. with 2000, Currently my portfolio is worth 300,000!!! yes largely due to CRDS, I made a killing with a 100,000 gain in 2 days.

Well to give credit where its due you have been a strong influence in my trading, and have made me mature into a fine tuned piece of machinery.

I'm currently a Sophomore at college, majoring in Computer Information Systems and probably the richest around!!! hahahaa!

But I never boast or have told anyone of my financial position, however I am a regular donater to the Local mosque (I'm muslim).

What I have learned from you are 2 things

1. Never let your emotions over power you.(Dont chase,dont get greedy, buy when the dogs sell)

2. Donate to charity with an open heart and God will bless you with twice as much.


I had to enjoy some of the money I made!!!!

Joe, I just wanted to thank you for your great stock picks. Your advice and your ability to consistantly pick winning stocks in a down market is uncanny. I have been trading for three years and I would consider myself an excellent trader. I an self-taught, which means that I lost money the first 18 months...lol . The good news is that I have gone from $27,000 in Oct 1998 to over $1,000,000 ytd. I credit your stock picks for $400,000 of this gain in the last two months....as the DOW fell over 1,000 points.LOL I made money on BRNC LOOK ENGA GBLX ZANY IMAA. My three biggest winners though are CMRC IWOV and VIGN. These three picks alone have made me over $300,000. The disapl and dd that you speak of so often has also helped me be a better trader....I now cut my losses at 3 to 5% ( capital preservation) and I take the time to research every pick before I buy, these two things have made a big difference in my trading profits.

Thanks again and God bless you and your family

Just wanted to say thanks for all your help. I've been a member for several months now, about 6 or 7 I think. Haven't been able to trade for the last 3 months but paid for your services anyway. Never knew when I would be able to get on line and trade and wanted to be ready. Finally got some time off and logged on and made some money. Surprising to me in this market. I am a retired police officer and have to supplement my income, I am trying to do it by trading. I made 1100.00 Friday and am up 1250.00 for today (haven't sold yet) so anything can happen. All I need is about 1000.00 a month extra income and I can truly retire. I truly beleive that with your advise I can do this but I don't have the confidence in myself yet so I must wait . I beleive I will get better and I have since I first joined. I don't care to become rich, I just want to make it on my own (at home trading). I've read every book you posted (twice). So I am a learned person, I just need the experience. And when you start trading you learn real quick what those books are really talking about. I advise anyone that is interested in trading to read first, IT WILL save you money. This is too long already, so thanks Joe. I just hope you stay around awhile. I need more time before I can go it alone, if I ever decide to do that.

I wanted to first thank you for all the insightful tips and strategies. My first week of trading I more than double my training fund of $2000 to $4500. I would say not bad for one week

Dear joe, I've been a mamber for about 5 months. i have made a lot of money following your advice, but money is money! there is one thing more valuable that one of your member e-mail reminded me off. the way you responded to the e-mail from that member who had just lost a sister put everything in prespective and gave me a new found respect for you. you showed everyone that you are not about money,money,money....of course we(capitalists)love it but the tenderness and caring way you answered to that persons e-mail gave me a higher high tan the best trade i could ever make, and showed me the true meaning of life!I hope you are proud of yourself because you should be!i sure am!!!

Subject: SA

Dear Joe:
I wanted to thank you for continuing to beat up the newbies. In my case I have been a serious trader for 3 years. I was first trained in the Wade Cook program(s)and have been sucessful using some of their methods. I have been consistently in the 80-85% winning trade range. I thought that I was a trader,but I was really just fooling myself. I read all of the books, I have fast execution, level 2 for 3 years....all of the tools, but I wasn't a trader. When I joined SA 5 months ago I proved that I wasn't a trader. Losing money sobered me and crushed my ego. It was hard for me, a person who teaches chart analysis and options trading, to admit that I picked a loser. Watching and listening as a premimum member has allowed me to know that we continue to learn and we should be quiet and pluck the little jewels of trading wisdom from the real traders. Perhaps newbies should be blocked from commenting for 30 days after joining. They would benefit greatly.
Looking forward to meeting yourself and some of the other real traders.
I made $6K on black Friday so I guess that I am teachable!

Forever in your debt

Dear Joe,

I guess I would like to add myself to the list of traders with a few years of experience, yet not focusing nor "seeing the light". I have had great gains and great losses. Much learning and still so much more to learn.

I believe what your service does best is to help members to "focus" better. I always tell myself that I would be a better trader if I just stopped second-guessing myself. You're really helping in that regard. Since I joined this month, I can honestly say, your's is the first advisory service (I have tried a few in the past) that really stands out. And the best part is.....YOU ARE RIGHT! Thank you for the recent great picks and advice! (GBLX, VISX, ZANY, ...... and CNCX - which you are not mentioning in yr ems btw)

But Joe, I have to admit that I am always the sceptic. Years of being ripped off have taught me to be that way out of necessity. (DD ya know) When I saw that Truthseeker press release, I said to myself, "Wow - what if all this "pump and dump" talk were somewhat true? What if I am being "led" to take a large position in ZANY and then have it crap out on me".

I admit I lost some faith when I saw ZANY open at 12 on friday. I sold half my position. Then I watched as ZANY bounced back. I wish I had kept those shrs. I think my selling was solely due to the Truthseeker release. Which incidentally made me lose focus.

Never again Joe, I promise !
Many Thanks and good luck to you and all SA members!

Subject: In stride

My best learning experience with you in 2 months is how to"move on." Tues amd Wed I found myself moving out of a much loved gblx and loading up Thur with zany. I finally, like you, learned to sence gblx was tired and zany was ready to "knock em dead."

Thanks for awakening any ability I may have to be an on-going winner!

I am sending you this note to thank you and tell you how much I appreciate being a member of SA. You have a great thing going here. I have seen you say in the chat room that the Hedge Fund will be how you make a ligitimate name for yourself and leave something for your kids. In my opinion you have already done that. But I wish you continued success with everything you venture into.

I have been a SA member for about 3 months. And was recently down significantly do to stupidity. I've read all the info on the web site (several times), read a number of the recommended books, and spend lots of time doing DD. Then I went right ahead and did the opposite of what I learned. I knew what I was doing wrong but had no discipline to fix it. Three weeks ago my starting capital had dwindled by 65%. Then I started reading the recovery plans on the web site on a regular basis and found some discipline to use stop losses and trade smart. I also gave up on becoming a millionare overnight. Now, three weeks later I have my starting capital back (which works out to about a 300% percent gain in 3 weeks). What took me 4 months to lose, I got back in 3 weeks. Again, I have to thank you, without all the education from you and the members of SA I would probably be done trading for a long time. Now, I feel like I'm just get started and the sky is the limit. I look forward to meeting you someday.

Real Happy Here!

Subject: Value in DD

These e-mails I get all day from SA <--- WOW!

I do a lot of research and DD work and I know how much time this takes to find the real gems amongst all the stocks that there are. I also know that actually finding this stuff requires a lot more than just a search engine. You have to filter a lot of crap to sort out the stuff that is worthwhile. You also have to know where to look, make phone calls to IR department and do a lot of reading between the lines. My hat's off to you TJ, to you and your staff, for sleuthing out this information and getting it out to your members in such a timely fashion.

This is more proof (to me) that you are not the "P&D man" that people say you are. This is the crap that is being spread in the message threads and certain other chat rooms. I think they are just scared or envious of SA and the TJ Man....

These continual and informative em's from SA are proof that you perform the research and the DD, you trade your picks, and you walk your talk.

I have experienced "P&D" first hand (and holding the bag). I have been in a lot of other chat rooms in the past 3 years some for "free" and some for "fee". I think I finally found a home!

Glad to be with you and the SA members,

Dear TJ-
I have been with you for 3 months now. Because I am a public school teacher who also has a public school teacher salary, I cannot write you saying I made all the big bucks I read about on the previous letter. But I can say you have given me more than $$$- you have given me hope-hope that I can use my persistence coupled your knowledge and experience into a second income which will help me help my kids through college and some other things single school teachers couldn't possibly do or afford. I have managed about $1500 avg. the 3 months I have been with you and I have done much paper trading and been quite conservative as I must teach eight hours a day. That almost equals my monthly teaching salary!!! - and the market certainly has not been tremendous. On top of that I have truly learned much about the market and many other things. For all this and for all you give in the future goes my sincere thanks!!!

A LOYAL follower,

Subject: Thank You

TJ - I sent you an email thanking you after my first day with SA ($8,250 gain) a week ago...After 5 more trading days with 2 heavy down days in the Dow and Nasdaq, what can I say that would indicate my appreciation for your stock analysis and recommendations...The last 5 days have provided me gains of $3500, $6250, $28000, $7700 and $6875...Over $60000 in 6 days!!! The best part is I am still holding a piece of ZANY and GDEN with some nice gains going into tomorrow...My prayer is that you don't retire anytime soon...

Subject: new trader-so far so good


Thanks for all of your insight! After 8 yrs with professional stock brokers I knew that I had to do something different. I joined your club, studied the home page, paper traded, absorbed your warnings, memorized the rules and perform my dd.

I also appreciate the added insight in many of the emails. I am a business consultant/accountant and I know how important instinct & experience is for clients to absorb. I pay particular attention to absorbing your instinct and style. So far, ( six months) I am averaging 110% annual return. Only reason the return is not higher is because I am stubborn at positioning stop loss. Stop loss is emotionaly hard to due, but I think I have it through my thick head at last.

Thanks for everything, keep up the good work with us. Appreciated todays email-"reenforcement"

Subject: My First Month With The SA (Testimonial from a Newbie Schmuck)

Hi joe,
Yeah, I'm a newbie schmuck. I joined the SA one month ago, and my portfolio is up 40%. When I joined, I thought like most newbie schmucks, all I had to do was get the EM and buy the stock, then sell it at a higher price. Yeah right! I learned after I was stopped out of my first trade that I was way in over my head. I went to the members pages and read everything twice. I re-read some of the books, and just watched, day after day. No L2, no premimum service, and a slow 28k connection, I knew not to even try! I started doing my own DD on the EM's and started selectively buying only the stocks that I knew I could handle. GPS @ 32, WFC @38, and yes GBLX, lots of GBLX. GBLX was a no brainer ever for a newbie schmuck with my hardware. When it broke through 27, I doubled-down, and profited! I would have never had the insight to get into any of these positions without your tips! Thank you very much. I will not be renewing my subscription next month, I will be on vacation to Amsterdam, and then to Greece. Where I will enjoy the trip that much more with the profits from your service. When I get back I'll re-subscribe (to the premimun service of course), get a faster connection and L2. Yeah I know I have so much to learn but I think with time and paper-trades I will be much better off!!

Thank you VERY MUCH!

tj, i know how busy you are, am sure that you must spend as much time planning as you do trading each day. I am very pleased with the experience i am having with the society. Your calls are timely, and your expertise is very evident. I was especially fortunate that you were soo persistant about buying global crossing. Your attention to detail, insightful understanding of their business sector, and willingness to put your neck on the line, pushed me to take some large positions in gblx. I don't want to seem to brag, but i am proud of the following. i bought 7kshares average price of 24 3/4, of which i still hold the majority of them. I bought a 40 lot of the october 25 call options at 5/8 and sold them shortly thereafter for 5$, and i bought frontier stock before global crossing closed the acquisition with them for a 10k profit. all told, a profit of about 60k, plus some given some scalping. I clearly would not have stayed with this, save your constant table pounding . thank you for your time and patience.

Just wanted to thank you for giving me the heads up on GBLX the other day. Got in @ 25 1/4 and sold today @ 32 1/8. Made about 2.5k. Not alot but every bit helps to recover from my mistakes before SA. Also, thanks for CLIC. Did some major scalping on it and made another 1k on it. That is 3.5k in less than a week. Thanks alot! Couldn't do it without your help

Hey Joe,

I'm a newbie and am still learning, but I want to thank you for your great lessons in living life as well as in trading stocks. Before your help I was slowly pissing away about 10,000, but since I've been with you for about two months I'm almost back even and with a bunch of gblx in hand it looks pretty good to keep going.

Date: Mon, 4 Oct 1999 19:49:46 -0400

Joe -

I've been following your picks under current alerts on web page for a couple of months and decided on Saturday to join you and the others at SA...The first day of following your trades was today and I finished with a gain of $8,250 (CYBS, VIXL) and I still have 1000 VIXL and 3000 LPAC with small gains going into trading tomorrow...Not bad for my first day with SA...What can I say???

Thank you so much for sharing your stock research and trading recommendations...

Although I did not chat today, it was great to have your ongoing comments and recommendations in real-time...Do I think this investment was worth it??? With my MBA in one hand and my HP-12C calculator in the other ($8,250/$200 = 41.25 months), I can now use your outstanding services for 41 months with a cost of $200...Now that is what I call ROI...

Thanks Again,
