I certainly wondered about this. There is nothing very secret or mysterious about selling puts.

The "secret sauce" is which underlying, at what strike, and what expiration. I'm guessing the Tuesday recommendation is for that week's expiration, taking advantage of Monday's time decay.

Tough way to make $1500/month. You would have to sell multiple contracts, opening yourself to the downside of having x contracts times 100 times strike price put to you--could be 10s of thousands of dollars--not to mention the risk the price blows through the strike to the downside.

Imagine you are 70 years old but you literally can't afford to retire and are still working. You live on a ranch in South America that nobody wants or is willing to buy from you, the pure definition of a bad investment.

You claim to have seen events before they happened but you have no verifiable printed proof of any of it. A home in Baltimore? again, another really bad investment.

Basically all you have left in life is a newsletter that you hope people will buy so that you don't lose everything else. Welcome to the world of Bill Bonner.

Rip off artists

I agree to pay $4.95 for a "free book". The book was a rambling, poorly written piece of garbage. Then 2 months later my credit card was charged $99 for Jim Rickards Strategic something or other. When I called to complain they hung up on me. Do NOT give this company a credit card number! Any money that you give them will be as wasted as if you had burned it. They are crooks without a conscience. Any money that you give them will be as wasted as if you had burned it. They are crooks without a conscience.

Anger person, this is a scam

I Yesterday Jul 15th 2016 I received my 1st issue of and after receiving my credit card statement and seeing they had billed my card for 99.00 for i year subscription. I had tried to contact them to no avail, Then I found a customer service site and ask to cancel which they did, and ask them to refund my 99.00 which that informed me that I was outside refund period. Other companies if your not happy will refund your money, but not Agroa. This a scam would never do business with them ever. I also tried to call customer service but nobady would answer the phone. The GOVT. should shut them down. I intend to contact my Senator to ask for his help in this matter.

It just happened to me. I called and stayed on the line for 30 minutes until someone answered.

I was told that I sent for a book and that I had certain time to cancel a monthly letter and if I did not cancel in time that I was would be billed 99.00 non refundable fee. What a scam I agree!! I only got the book but do not need the monthly information. I can not wait to see what they send me as proof I agreed to this.

Why cant we cancel something we will never get.

Review in Financial Services category from Cambridge, Massachusetts

Has anyone actually made money with Agora Financial LLC, selling options? I just watched an email advertisement claiming that Arora Financial will provide me with big blue chip company names every Tuesday morning that generate real income over 98% of the time. These people want investors with a minimum investable income of $20k. They are asking for $1500 for their starter kit. I am trying to find out if this is just another internet scam or not. Please advise. Thank you

Heh heh - so now your put option u sold has your 20k frozen by your broker till the expiration - so u figure u will close it and take a new position to make another $200 - so u sell it to someone else to close, but now u pay them the $200 premium (depending which way the stock moved) - so u net 0 taking the risk the whole time - see agora knows there is no 'magic', just *** people they can scam $1500 from.

Scam - here's why - u r selling put options to a buyer of put option (100 shares to a contract) - if underlying stock tanks before the expiration- u take the huge loss instead of the put option buyer - if price goes from 140 to 80 - u have guaranteed to by back at 140 so u lose $6000. So u paid agora 1500 for they're *** prediction - don't be lazy - watch real videos and learn options trading and risks for yourself.

I don't work for Agora Financial so I have no vested interest in responding to your complaint - but perhaps you should consider (with all due respect) the fact that Agora Financial is first and foremost a publishing company and as such, offers many products involving their writers. Sending out subscription opportunities to these various services/publications therefore is less a matter of "spamming" (more typical of emails touting everything from 'free cell phone' to dating beauties from some country) than it is of "advertising" a companies portfolio of available publications.

As a subscriber to one of the publications, I have noted there is a way to decline being sent promotional offers (usually a link at the bottom of any such email) but if that doesn't work for you - call their customer service number and request to be removed from receiving their promotional mailings. Hope this helps.
