The Trading Zoo


I've started this topic because I am under the impression that ahk works with The Trading Zoo and he is active on this forum and may be able to provide information and comments about this service.

I believe that it will be constructive to have a topic/thread dedicated to The Trading Zoo so that the merits of this service can be discussed in isolation to the other topics which have collectively dealt with several trading services in the same topic including The Trading Zoo.

When I first saw the Zoo was posting their supposed trades, I took a look at them. They had an amazing ability to hit the last tick of a run with their entry even if in was in the pre-market with their 32 contracts.

Heck, they would sometimes even do this with their exits.

I see they have had only one losing day for $400 in May and June. That's pretty good. Of course these are their "official" trades. This seems to be a way of only posting their "good" trades if they are real at all.

I like the way they say they are position traders on their site. I
can't see why they say this when it looks like they are fading extreme price/volume/hi/low-tick runs for 1-3+ pts in a matter of minutes.

In fact, they state this on their site: "We look at the market first
thing in the morning and look to position ourselves long or short for the rest of the day or until the market tells us otherwise". I have never seen a trade that lasted the rest of the day on their site.

In fact, they say the first 2 hours is where they thrive (even though they do take trades later on during the day).

They say they use a 1.25 stop most of the time. I have noticed
that sometimes their stop would of been hit but I never see it posted on their site.

I could go on and on but this post is getting too long as it is.



Well at least I can count on Version not signing up. What a relief! One down and who knows how many to go?

You'd think with all these conflicting statements that people would run, not walk, from this, right? Well, last week was a free trial and MP signed up 6 members. It's getting to the point that if you don't get in the room very early, you may not get a seat.

Happy trading.
These Zoo threads are great..if I could roll them up I'd smoke them.....LOL.

Poor Mary, she's making so much money with Zoo trading that she's upset that more people are joining. Instead of going about her own trading and making her own money trading the Zoo method she still feels like she needs to sit in a room full of "trainees" and follow along with MP.....what a shame.


But lets not get lost here....The Zoo / MP cannot provide statements. Every so often they feel the need to send another recruit onto the boards to "drum" up business. Mary is no exception!

Those of us who actually trade can feel proud of our accomplishments. It's sad that Trading vendors ( in this case) are not held to higher standards and those who fail ( Remember Mary that MP has been provided many chances to prove he actually trades and has never done so) have no ethics and morally find it easy to take the money from others teaching something they, themselves cannot do.

I can't deny the fact that the zoo provides me with good entertainment and I enjoy their posts. Imagine 6 more people taking a free trial...WOW..I'm impressed..lol

This particular vendor utilizes the Muti level marketing approach....I look forward to the day when we actually see some statements but then what would I do for laughs???

So we'll help MP and Mary bring in business again if that's what they really need. At least will have more people to fade by taking positions opposite the Zoo....

Light it up!!!

Bruce
Bruce, I see you're not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Six people joined as new members from a pool of 25 or so trialers. That's a pretty good close ratio. Of course, all 6 of those people are stupid, deaf , dumb, and blind sheep who have a deep seated psychological need to go to the slaughter and be dazzled by the magus. That's what you'd like the readers of this to believe. Everyone who joins the Zoo is a moron according to you.

Have you ever asked yourself why MP or any other Zoo member would prove to you ANYTHING? Who the hell are you and who owes you ANYTHING? If MP sues you, you'll be the one who has to do the proving and it will be mighty costly to you. Count on a budget of $20-30K for attorney's fees and who knows how much if the plaintiff prevails for damages; but of course you can afford to defend yourself since you are such a successful trader, right? By the way, how are things at home with the wife? Have you told her you're up to your old tricks again on this forum? A masochist who flirts with danger like you doesn't have the discipline to trade successfully. The only things fading in your life are your jeans and marriage.

Light it up indeed and don't forget to bring your fire extinguisher! You'll need it when your pants catch fire.

Happy trading.
Thanks for letting me "pull out" your true colors Mary...Great stuff...so gullible...You were easy....the Zoo must be sending out the minor league now...

So this is the type of person you get involved with when you sign up at the Zoo....something to think about !!! I certainly wouldn't want to be involved with an organization who employs such abusive characters....

All the best Aaron, Max, Barry, T-rex, Daywalker ( insert one of the many different nicknames the Zoo has come onto this forum with here..)..oopps I mean Mary.....lol...I thought this was going to be fun and a challenge.

Can't say you weren't given more than one heads up. Some people love to flirt with danger and never learn until it's too late. Sadly, you are one of those people who brings trouble unto themselves and then look to blame others for your misdeeds. Tell it to the judge and jury.

Happy trading (and defending).
Oh , not that crap again!! You make the Zoo look so foolish. Perhaps this time you can actually afford to hire a lwayer with the money the Zoo now makes selling computers. You need to learn about the law and trading...lol. I'll be waiting for you.


Do people actually withdraw from confrontation because of a legal threat like this ? You guys already know where I live and continue to send me virus emails so lets get some follow through here....

After reading this it is obvious that tradermary is actually AKH.

He is using the same tactics as he did before. Attacking... It's pathetic.

And AKH, I sure wouldn't sign up with your Zoo animals. Don't need to. And coming on here pretending to be a mother with kids is pretty lame.

Your not fooling anyone.
These Zoo folks are pathetic. They have alot of nerve coming on here under false Id's and threatening people. This time they came in as the
"desperate housewife" , a classic infomercial technique. If they will make threats to people posting their opinions then how easy do you think it would be to get a refund of your 7 grand if you don't like their course?

In other words...If they would try to deceive us on this forum then I beleive they would stop at nothing which would include having Shills in their own trading room in order to vouch for "market calls" made by their moderator.

Keep your money to yourself!! Stay clear of the Zoo.......Can I be more clear??

Tell Bruce M, this is MP, I was just told about this pathetic thread that you are running here by one of my students. Who are you? Bad mouthing me like that over here, do you even know me? Do you know what I'm about? You have some nerve questioning my integrity. I never told anyone of my students to come in here and post any solicitations, I give you my word on this. in fact I always preach my traders to stay out of those chat rooms because all they can do is harm themselves by associating themselves with negativity and peering themselves with losers. Obviously you have no life and posting here is what gives you a great pleasure. I'm not going to get into a war of words with you so save the reply, you are way beneath my status to even worry about. I don't only teach I trade as well and run a very successful hedge fund. I don't just talk the talk but I walk the walk I average for my clients, and I, about 10% return a week. I'm one of the best traders in the US and you really think I'll be bothered by someone like you? just don't bad mouth me and keep your thoughts to yourself, you don't know a thing about me and to do something like that is uncalled for...get a life! I wish you would invest the same energy you spend over here helping poor children or your local church. Have a good life and concentrate your energy in a more positive direction, you’ll be less bitter with life. Chao.
For what it's worth, I was an original Trading Zoo student. Sam Baum's system was dangerous, all counter-trend with short profit targets with larger invisible stops.

A few of us students started out own Skype room to ignore the teacher's setups but rather take in his priceless information regarding the e-mini, which alone was worth the $6,000 as I gained a true understanding of how to read and trade ANY liquid market. I think one of the traders using our new modified trend setups with trailing stops actually sent someone his trading statements to someone on another forum years ago which shut the naysayer up quick.

Anyways, Trading Zoo is back but run by some of the traders who have been successful for over the past 6 years using our modified system.
I want to personally promote this because of all the original TradingZoo did for me.
