42-Day Success

I am glad to read your experience with WWA. It sounds pretty bad. I was considering joining WWA because I honestly have had an incredibly good experience with Knuckman’s 43-Day Retirement Window. I don’t think he promised that I would turn $1000 into $420,000 in 42 days, but he did string together some winning trades that made it sound possible. The reality for my experience is that I turned was initially a $20,000 investment and that I added another 10,000 gradually over the next two months for a total of a $30,000 investment in to $75,000 in three months. No, I cannot retire on that, but if that kind of performance continues I will certainly be be able to retire on it. I don’t know yet whether it well but my experience in the second three months is going just as well. My $30k is now worth $84k and I have not lost a single trade YET! Fingers crossed. Best wishes and happy investing. Honest report and not paid to support Knuckman or Agora.

What happens when you mix perception with deception?

Agora has a lot of good to offer. However.... it sullies itself and lures unsophisticated investors with devious and deceitful "offerings". My favorite Agora Scam is the "Shocking footage from outside the door of our building" www. baltimorefoorage.com/2 .. there is also an earlier version. I complained about this without a response. I am shocked the SEC has not come down on them for it. These presentations show how you can profit instantly.. or alternatively generate cash instantly, with virtually no money in. Lotsa luck. They use an example of selling puts... never mentioning the qualifications for doing so... the amount of capital required to execute the transaction... the notional risk associated... etc. Pity the poor wanna be investor who steps into that Briar Patch. Disgraceful.

Crypto Alert

These guys sold a subscription for $3000 by pumping an ICO. I will not name it. They proised a Trezor with $500. I have had the subcription since they offered it. I have still not received the Trezor or the $500 check they have promised in place of $500 worth of Ethereum. This subscription has been riddled with random buys that ended up being way too high to buy and put me in the hole for way too long. I realize they can go back up yet (and likely will). Maybe they can save their selves. However I have no faith in this subscription, when I compare it to another that offers way more insight and daily updates, details, etc. Some picks have been a bit hasty, with little research, IMHO. I hope to see things turn around. As it stands today. I would not recommend this subscription. I hope that can change. I know Louis Basanese is smart. But I am not happy with his lack of knowledge regarding cryptocurrencies right now.

Agreed. Agora is largely a scam.

They might have one reco a year that works, the rest are duds. Be wary of their track records, these *** are good at timing position sales so as not to mess up their marketing materials.

Agora Income On Demand Review

Update by user Dec 23, 2015

(Oddly enough, I did not see that this website is called Pissed Consumer until I had submitted this review, which is actually quite positive.  I started out to comment on another review, and they asked me if I wanted to make it a full fledged review. Oops.)

Original review posted by user Dec 23, 2015
I have used Agora's Income On Demand and, like another reviewer, I agree that it is unfortunate that you have to have a large reserve on hand. The strategy is one of making money through the selling of put options; the reserve is in case your puts get exercised and stock shares are put to you.  But if that happens you can then use the shares for covered calls and keep making money with them until they are called in (with a nice profit, no less), or you can profitably sell them. I have to say that I have made decent money with an account in the $25K range. My target is $1000/month to supplement my Social Security and so far I have surpassed that easily.  Not bad at all for that size account!  My broker is Interactive Brokers and they did not try to impose the restrictions that stopped another reviewer in his tracks.  (Also, IB has excellent commission rates, but they do require at least $10K to open an account.)  Income On Demand is for people looking for relatively small but fairly reliable returns, no major jackpots here due to the nature of selling puts. I have had good luck with it, using due caution of course, and I do plan to renew. I do not work for Agora and am in no way associated, other than the subscription.  I very rarely give good reviews on services I have tried, as I have had very bad luck with most (including some other Agora services). Regarding those, I will note that Agora did not hesitate to refund my money when I canceled during the trial period, though they do keep 10% of the fee.  Income On Demand is one of the very few services that has delivered just what I was hoping for, and just what was promised.

OK, but there's a Gray Area here-money in reserve;the video didn't talk much about that. Also, there was some bad grammar in a few of their sentences(don't have time to get into that, I'd have to watch the whole#@***video to find them)_As I said, a few of these sentences had bad grammar, but I couldn't help but wonder if they weren't intentional, as they were constructed in a way the reduces their liabilities.Oh well, welcome to the wild,wild West, I mean Internet!

#1226778

I very much interested in this strategy selling puts earning income and indeed I have tried and made some money. I subsequently pulled out because investment on the actual stock which I have no intention of owning, apart from cash outlay.

I did ask Zek to give me a run down on his past performance if I only sell puts but when puts rise in price, I will cut loss without owning stock.

How wound your strategy work or perform.

I have no answer from him. Any one to help?

#1543610
@PissedConsumer1226778

Selling puts on stocks you would not want to own is a bad strategy, and not what is recommended by Income on Demand. Buying your puts back to "reduce risk" is also a bad idea.

If you want to "reduce risk" sell further our of the money options. That is not to say don't buy your open put back to minimize a loss. Finally, if you are risk averse, consider selling put credit spreads.

That way you limit your loss to the spread, although you cut potential profit by the cost of the option purchased. All in all, put selling ( and occasional covered calls on the stocks you get put) can be a very conservative and effective income strategy.

#1178809

If you open another browser window, the video site will ask if you would rather read the transcript. Then you can scroll down a couple miles to the I'm In button, click it, and see how much the thing they are talking about costs.

#1178807

Thank you for your candid and positive review. I subscribed to Income on Demand for three months (as I recall) at $495.

What is missing from their ad and clever video is the three-minute earnings of a couple hundred dollar require expiration of the puts (or calls) and that is close to two months and 3 minutes. ;-)

I have taken only one position so far, because I started with $2000; though, $20,000 was recommended. I am happy to hear that with $20K you were able to earn the $1000-$1500/month that is advertised.

I plan to increase my portfolio.

How many times did you end up owning the stock? And did they tell you when to sell calls?

#1543614
@PissedConsumer1178807

I do not subscribe to Income on Demand (yet) but if the holding time bothers you, there are weekly options on most of the better stocks worth owning today. Thus, selling on Tuesday lets you know the outcome on Friday of the same week (4 days).

Weeklies can be more volatile but time decay is definitely working in your favor even when the stock drops a bit. Take your out of the money put premium and divide by the days to expiration and you'll have a pretty fair idea of how much the option premium will drop each day until expiration.

Weigh that against you expectation of the stock price movement and you can get a sense of profit/loss expectation. Nothing is ever guaranteed of course, but it's reducing a complex analysis to simple math.

#1162534

If you are happy with them and intend to renew why did you cancel during the trial period??

#1091758

isn't it a crying shame that the droning goes on and on and one waits for him to get to the friggin point...and yet he doesn't

im waiting to see what he is selling? if he is just selling the advice on selling put options...oh good grief...

as a former member of the CBOE and CBOT as a market maker floor trader...i most likely could run circles around this guy and spin him put strategies that would finally put hair back on his bald head

#1543624
@PissedConsumer1091758

You probably could, i.e. I know a banker that sells naked put every day, but...

He's playing with OPM, and has years of experience, as it sounds like you do too. I agree, the marketing go's on and on and on... but one has to remember, their audience isn't you and me, or my banker friend. And their strategy is designed for ease of understanding with a degree of safety accepted by the ruling class for average investors trading IRA's, 401(k)s, and retirement savings.

I'm not a subscriber, but I wound up here while trying to establish the veracity of the author and the claims of the publisher.

Your comment adds nothing to the conversation, either pro or con, that benefits the average searcher looking to do his due diligence. But thanks for sharing....

After watching the video on "Income on Demand" my head was about to explode because of all the repetitious content. I was super skeptical and when I finally found out the $2,000 price tag, I backed off.

They sent me an email and tried to entice me with a lower price.

My red flags went off and common sense told me to run away from this one. It all sounded way too good to be true.
