Sykes banks over 3 mill year in and year out--- pockets more than elite trader grosses with none of the headaches.

The guy is Rambo, not to mention one of the few posters on elite to have turned the dream into reality. Why he is vilified here makes zero sense.

Sykes reminds me of Michael Parness. Stay away from these traders. He would be running a hedge-fund if anyone in the whole country thought that he had some upside. Apparently no one is begging him to invest thier money.

What a scummy way to live, let alone make a living.

You could pay me 3mil a year in and year out to suck off my boss everyday when I came into work, or do cartwheels on command.
I'd rather have my salary and my dignity.

I don't have a boss or anyone telling me what to do. And it would probably take 10mil a year in and year out, before I would jump up and down begging people to listen to me and follow me, day in and day out.

I enjoyed watching him on Wall Street Warriors, sad to see he would later go to the shill side of the business.

All this clown had to do was learn options. A lot easier to make %300 on a company that has a balance sheet and MMs in float in options.

Why would anyone trade bullshit penny stocks for big upside gains? So dumb. Learn options. Stay away from pennystocking. Stay away from Tim Sykes.

If any one of my friends or anyone I know asks me about a penny stock I tell them to learn how to trade options, and thank me for saving them money.

Penny stocks are only good for pump and dumps.

Spongetech, Sunpeak ventures SNPKE i.e.

What a surprise. One failed snake oil salesman hyping another.

You have been exposed so many times on ET, why do you keep coming back?


P.S.- if you think Sykes is "rambo", you really are a bigger loser than I thought.
