Tim Sykes is a well known and much respected individual in the world of financial trading, and in particular, the trading of penny stocks. He is a millionaire that is completely self made through his trading exploits and his education business.
Before looking at his education business and some of the materials that he produces, it is important to first get an idea of who Tim Sykes is. His rise to fame came about after he successfully made $2 million from $12,415 that he received as a gift whilst at Tulane University in New Orleans. This was achieved through the trading of penny stocks and is something that very few traders are ever able to achieve.
The strategy that Tim Sykes used was one where he shorted penny stocks. This saw him bet on the stocks going down. He had noticed a pattern in that any penny stocks that surged in value of a rate between one hundred percent and one thousand percent would, days or weeks later, return back to their original lower price.
This allowed him to expose those frauds, promotional schemes, and scams that were present in this market. It was these unscrupulous activities that were the reason for the stock prices being so inflated, and because of their nature (i.e. pump and dump) they were likely to come crashing back down. Being able to identify these enabled Tim Sykes to build up an account that was seven figures.
He quickly found out that within the penny stock market there is such a large proportion of scams going round that it is difficult to believe. So with his high level of honesty and transparency in this cloudy market, Tim Sykes is a breath of fresh air. All of his trades are fully verified on the trading website Profit.ly.
It was during the 1990s that he began his trading career and after graduating from university he set up his own hedge fund called Cilantro. This went on to be ranked as one of the top hedge funds in the country, before suffering from a large loss. Despite this it was still some percentage points higher. He eventually retired from running the hedge fund and went on to write a book that he called An American Hedge Fund: How I Made $2 Million as a Stock Operator & Created a Hedge Fund.
However, it was through the TV show Wall Street Warriors that Tim Sykes gained his most fame. The show explained how Tim Sykes made his millions and it proved to be a hit with many viewers.
