NEWS & VIEWS from
by Doug West
Please excuse our long hiatus from publishing this newsletter. We have really been swamped with our day trading, and most of our focus and efforts have been directed toward that. It has turned into MUCH more than we even thought. The training and package just keeps getting better all the time. Because of this package, I sincerely believe that we have one of, if not THE Best affiliate programs on the net. AND, we are close to adding something to the package that should make it the hands down favorite home biz to work anywhere - Just Watch us grow!
This awesome system for trading the e-mini S&P 500 has really helped folks from all walks of life. Many have quit jobs and businesses that had them tied down. From lives of time slaves to lives of time Freedom!
We still believe in multiple streams of income, and we have that built into the program for our team members too. You will have access to the info you need to market any biz online. Use it to grow your online passive income and learn some simple trading skills that have no limit.
Imagine a business where you can earn several hundred dollars or more in the first hour and half of the opening bell on Many mornings! That is what we have here, and your income does NOT depend on what Anyone else does. You control your income, risks, and profits! I honestly don't think I have found a better home biz in over 20 years of investigation and writing about home biz offers.
When you add the awesome affiliate program (that is going to soon get even better - right now you can earn $700 referrals paid daily, and $200 2nd tier referrals AND a monthly residual paid out in 2-tier fashion - $10 per month for your referrals who keep a membership, and $5 a month for 2nd Tier memberships monthly - many of our affiliates are earning a GREAT incomes from that alone - Don't miss my rebuttal to our critics mentioned below - Kosoma LLC EXPOSED?) it really is a complete package that has a LOT of value, but we are always adding more.
Read here what a few of my students have told me about our trading training:

Afterthoughts on Rita and Katrina - And How These May Affect Your Home Biz
I have been quiet for the most part on these two disasters, but I felt I just had to speak out on the issues here. My heart goes out to those who have lost lives, homes, pets, and more with these terrible storms.
The slow response by the government, FEMA, the military, or whoever to get some of the folks out was another disaster in itself. The image of the 2 kids (a boy and a girl) on a rooftop from flooded New Orleans with a sign that read "Please Help" is forever imbedded in my mind. It leads us all to the reality that most of us here in the states were at least subconsciously aware of - We cannot rely on the government to save us in times of crisis - AND, that they are ill prepared to do so. (and they probably won't be there to help us with retirement either - so we better take care of our families by creating our own passive and proactive income streams - and teaching our children to do the same!)
Even when the government sets aside BILLIONS of dollars for relief, that relief is slow to arrive IF it ever does (here we are over a year later, and Many of the folks on our southern coast have yet to see any aid - it really is a pitiful situation). Most of the charitable agencies are not much better. To give you an example my brother Greg had been wanting to help out with this since Katrina first hit. The First Lady got on the TV and at one point was telling folks to come to New Orleans to help out. Greg and his wife Sonja jumped in the vehicle and headed toward Louisiana.
Our cousin Tommy was one who was trapped in New Orleans, and they had hoped they could help him get out, and help in any other way they could while they were there. They did manage to get within a few blocks of where Tommy was stranded (at great personal risk I might add) and were told at gunpoint to "Get Out". It seems the only ones who could enter freely were the gangs and thieves (and the police - some of whom were not much better than the criminals they were supposed to be protecting citizens from).
After coming back home to Oklahoma, Greg and Sonja signed up to help with the Red Cross. They imagined that they could perhaps help out in Houston where many of the evacuees had been taken. They were told that there was a need right here in Oklahoma at a camp Gruber. Many of the evacuees, mostly from Houston had been taken to this military camp in rural Oklahoma.
To Greg's surprise, the first thing the evacuees saw when they exited the buses was the Red Cross selling pop and bottled water for a dollar each. Many of the folks on these buses would buy one and then when walking further into the camp were greeted by the Salvation Army who was giving away water and pop. Needless to say that made a lot of the folks somewhat angry with the Red Cross.
To make a long story short, my brother and sister in law quit working with the Red Cross after just a couple of days. They had just seen too many disgusting displays by the Red Cross outfit to want to work with them any longer!
Later, I talked with a good friend of mine who is a Korean veteran by the name of Jim. Jim told me that the Red Cross was in Korea during the war, but all they were ever good for was coffee and sometimes a doughnut. I had heard about the waste and administrative abuse of donated funds from the Red Cross for years - long before the 911 fiasco from which they are still under investigation. Yet celebrities like Jay Leno and about every major web site on the net touts the Red Cross as the place to send your donations. I can understand folks wanting to help out, and I did myself, but I can't for the life of me figure out why anyone would want to send another dime to the Red Cross (for more insight on the Red LOSS and other charities see:
My brother Greg had been active for some time doing volunteer work in helping US veterans to get their benefits. After giving up on getting anything accomplished with the Red Loss he turned his attention to some of the veteran organizations to see if anything could be done to help evacuees who were also vets. To his surprise he found that MUCH of the funds that had been allocated by Washington to help victims (including veterans) was mostly setting idle, with no real plan of action for disbursement. After a lot of leg work and tons of phone calls, he was set up with grant money and put in charge of helping veterans at the same evacuee camp here in Oklahoma (where he had tried to work with the Red Loss) and then one in Arkansas.
Greg told me that there was a need in these camps for ones to get various items that had been mostly overlooked by the big charities, and so he set out to do that with his own funds (the main thing many of the men were wanting was some new underwear - and get this - the Red Loss and other organizations like them would not provide that. They set them up with new jeans, but no new underwear - go figure). I'd much rather donate to individuals who are actually doing something like Greg than BIG bureaucratic charities that eat up the lion's portion of donations in their top heavy administration and pay roll. (We also helped out with other contributions that went Directly to those affected in LA, AL, and MS).
Finally I wanted to mention something about how the Internet crowd all rallied to get folks on their lists to help out in some way. While this is admirable, many of the things we looked at were again directing folks to give funds to the Red Loss, or to donate blood, or some such thing.
One well known Guru from the south told his bunch that they could all think positive and keep the 2nd hurricane - Rita - away from their homes and properties. When Rita arrived with less damage than originally expected, this Guru basically took credit for it. He claimed that by sending a letter to his list, and others sending the same positive thinking letter to their lists, they all sent a "white tornado of love" out to greet Rita which broke it up and tore it down to a category 3 (I'm sure that folks who got hit by Rita would have preferred that this Guru would have just destroyed the storm altogether!).
Now I am as much into positive thinking as the next guy (as I tell my day trading students, you have to be positive or you won't ever become a good trader), but if this fella thinks he is stopping or slowing down storms by being positive, then I need to talk to him about willing the markets to go where we want them!
My wife and I heard our share of folks here in Oklahoma claim that their prayers kept the storm from reaching us (which was projected as a possibility). We heard similar comments about Katrina and Rita. So I guess they feel that God, or the creator, or some cosmic energy (as the guru mentioned above seems to believe in) liked them better than the poor folks who had been hit HARD by this. So he spared Oklahoma and wiped out New Orleans - right! Folks really need to THINK before they speak.
I guess the worst thing that comes from disaster is the crooks that crawl out from every rock and try to capitalize on other's misfortunes. I'm talking about the thieves that loot, and the low down bums who set up sites for fake charities etc.
To end this on a positive note, I would say that disaster brings out the good in most folks. There really are a lot of good people out there who just want to help! We lived in Oklahoma City when the bomb went off there, and the spirit that prevailed was something to see. People from all over the world wanted to help, and did! It warms your heart to see that quality coming out in your fellow man, and it proves to me how things could be, how they will be some day.
How Will This Affect Your Home Biz?
Those of us in home biz, or any biz for that matter, can easily be affected by things like natural disasters and/or any event that can directly cause reactions in the economy. Our prediction after Katrina, Rita, and other disasters that are sure to follow, is that more and more folks will begin to look for ideas on working from home. The good news is that there are more ways to stay home and make a living now, than at any other time in history! If you are in the business of teaching and or helping others to work from home, you can feel good about what you do. The old saying is still true - if you help enough people get what they want, you will get what you want too! Keep up the good work!
I hope you enjoy this issue of OIO.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS
Subject: Final Stats First Two Weeks
Date: Fri, 17 Dec 2004 19:38:59 -0500
From: Lying - Smear-Campaigning, Former Student
Well as we all know I am the stats guy ;-)
here are my final numbers for the first two
weeks of my trading. There are a number of
things worth noting.
Winning Trades - 39
Losing Trades - 6
*NOTE* All six loses were in the first week,
no loses after the 3rd day of the first week.
Overall Earnings - $ 4,025.00
Less Commissions - $ 1560.00 (using 5 contract avg.)
Total Profit - $ 2,465.00
I only traded nine days. So I am shy one day.
Projecting these numbers that is a monthly income
of $ 4,930.00
That is over 1,000. dollars per week, at a very
conservative pace, with a small number of contracts,
it will only get better over time as I get more
comfy with the number I trade.
Most of my trades were for 5 contracts. The last two
days I traded 10, except the last trade today when I
I think these results just prove what you've been saying
all along. Slow and steady wins the race, consistent
trading will make you a lot of money.
Thanks for the amazing system,
Talk to you soon,
|As we were preparing this long overdue issue of OIO, I came across
the statement above from one of my former Day Trading students who for
no less than 8 months praised everything about our system and affiliate
program. Suddenly, to my surprise he started a violent smear
campaign not only on my system, but against me personally.
The "stats guy" had done some figuring to determine how much Kosoma LLC was earning from our DT Course. He shares these inaccurate figures with anyone who will listen to his seedy plan. In his figuring he had left out a TON of expenses that he has no clue about. He has obviously never ran a company or corporation before - why should he care about the truth when he can just make statements and attacks? I envision him with $$$ signs in his head, his calculator out, and a goofy grin on his face. It seems he wanted more than the thousands of dollars he "Claimed" to have been making trading.
This has escalated to the point where we had to involve attorneys to investigate the lies, slander, defamation, and mud slinging he has been sending our way. I hate dealing with lawyers, and law, and suits, and slander, and on and on. Normally the attorneys are the only ones who win, and I know that. But this fellow left me no choice on the matter - even though I gave him many chances to do so. He has even now been contacting my affiliates to try to get them to work his "new" trading program. His filth has caused a few of my affiliates to lose sales, and that bothers me more than anything he could do to me personally. I could quit teaching right now and do just fine, but when hard working folks - My Affiliates - have been listed as WHORES, on his web site it has gone far enough.
My initial thought was to just ignore him. That most folks would ignore such a negative thinking person and that anyone who would be attracted to such obvious slime tactics would not be the type of person we would want on our team anyway.
However, then one of my online friends said to me "Doug, this guy has got to be stopped. He has called you a thief and a liar, and so far all the public is hearing is his side of the story! Man he is out to ruin the good reputation you have built online since 97." The attorneys said, "Just wait, give him some more time and he will hang himself." In my mind he had already done that, and the lawyers told me they have well over 100 pages of defamation and slander, but I set by silently.
Now most folks who know me know that I am a simple, fairly quiet man. I believe in keeping most things in life including web biz, web pages, trading, friendships, fishing, etc. simple. It has been my style and it has served me well. I think, check that I KNOW, simple is what most folks WANT. Still, I was going to try to give the guy the benefit of the doubt. I even wrote several emails to him pleading for him to stop. That if he wanted to violate his nondisclosure agreement with me I would not pursue the matter as long as he quit blasting me and just promoted whatever he was promoting on it's own merit. It quickly became apparent that he preferred to do things the hard way, the complicated way, the long drawn out nobody is really a winner way. (He may in fact be the author of the lose-lose philosophy - I prefer win-win if at all possible).
He told me, and I quote his email:
"I am not sure where you are getting the idea
I also quite agree with you that mechanical systems
I have NO question about the fact that you've traded
Well again I am not sure where you are going with this,
Well yes, and I have been a father, and a grandfather, and a husband, a tree farmer, an AT&T technician, a mechanic, a public speaker, an insurance salesman, a cook, and a dishwasher too. What does that have to do with the price of tea in China???? Who in the world says that ANYBODY has to do only one thing in life to qualify to show others what he knows about a particular subject???? If that is true, then all the info sellers out there on the net best give up right now. Well, at least according to you know who ^ :-(excluding himself of course;-(
You will notice that I am not naming this person, I have no reason to. The legal team we have hired for this will deal with him and all the issues involved, but I did want to clear the air here for those that my be interested in knowing the truth behind the smear campaign.
I was right all along. The guy who blasted me for having an affiliate program now has one for traders. The guy who blasted and keeps blasting me for teaching (hey but wait, you pitched me on 4 or 5 different MLM programs in the last month that I was talking to you - you were also some sort of PC guru or so you say - what now qualifies you to teach trading - you have less experience than I do - haven't you been a PC tech longer than a trader? Please correct me if I'm wrong) and swore that he had no such thing in mind now has a system he is, or will soon be selling (he was forced to do this he claims, by his many fans out there - give me a break). Again he has even approached some of my affiliates trying to get them to work his exciting new trading program (one of them is a person that he has listed as an "Affiliate Whore" on his site - go figure, this master affiliate told him to go fly a kite or something less kind).
KEEP IT POSITIVE - OR DIE AS A TRADER - no pun intended
I hate that I even have to clear the air on this issue, but it has gone on long enough. It is easy to SAY that something is so, but this guy's cheesy actions should speak MUCH louder than the slimy words.
I really feel sorry for anyone who gets mixed up with such a negative thinker. I used to think he was positive, but I've not heard anything positive come from him in some time. I'm told that he continually blasts me in his blog. Though my lawyers are archiving it, I don't have the stomach to read any more of it.
He has actually posted phony negative testimonials on his web site supposedly written by folks who have taken our training (when no such named person exits - or as in one case - is a great friend of mine here in Oklahoma who has done work for us, and who we have even helped in purchasing a new car - she didn't write it - so I'll give you one guess who did). Oh, I'm sure he has found a whiner or two that will listen to him and has somehow convinced them that he is the one who can lead them to trading bliss. Boy are they in for a BIG surprise! Wait till they discover the REAL STATS GUY! (You mean we had the power to do it ourselves this whole time? Without the stats guy????)
His goal all along has been to steal traffic from our site, steal students, steal affiliates etc. etc. etc. If you have such a HOT system of your own, why not market it on it's own merits?? That is all I ever really asked. All he could say is that he was not now or Ever planning on marketing any trading course of his own. Then he had the audacity to say that HE tried to talk to ME, and since I wouldn't talk to him, he was forced to put on the smear campaign. Does that make any sense? Why not just forget me if he thinks I'm that horrible (even though for 8 months DTME was the greatest thing since sliced bread)?
Here is a letter he sent out to a small group of traders who he had found among my students. They were all fairly experienced so I did not mind if they wanted to form their own small master mind group, but one of the folks in that group told me that he was constantly pitching them on products and MLM programs (yet he was supposedly earning thousands a week trading - why not just focus on that since he thinks anyone working an MLM program is so horrible???). Once I found out about the smear campaign he was launching I asked him what he was up to, and that it seemed like to me he was priming folks for something he was planning on selling. He then sent this letter to his small group:
Well as someone of you are aware I was contacted by the FTC this week
Enjoy if nothing else it's interesting to see how badly he misses the
Why would the FTC contact HIM about MY Affiliates???? He said it was because they knew that he was a prominent student or some such thing - WOW, talk about a guy with an inflated ego. He then gives a case number to his small list (and of course I'm getting a copy of everything he sends them - there are some folks who have some loyalty to their online friends), and IF that case number is real, then it must be cause HE contacted the FTC to file a complaint himself. Now if that is true, then the boy is playing an EXTREMELY dangerous game. Filing an FTC complaint to try to bring down a competitor is a no no. I began to wonder if the boy was playing with a full deck of cards.
At one point (just before the smear campaign began) he tried hard to
get me to join a really complicated MLM type training program for trading.
A person would need about $500 a month to keep it turned on and the charting
was EXTREMELY involved. I actually considered it. I told him that some
of my more advanced students might like it. He had visions of me pulling
all of my affiliates under him in this MLM. I finally had to tell him that
the complicated thing really goes against every fiber of my being. Later
in his blog, or somewhere I read where he was blasting that program, and
that he was glad he got out of it before he lost his money. After that
he told me that he liked the program, but not the MLM - well here
is his email on it:
... my problem with PN was the MLM program
When he was pitching the program to me, he told me it was an excellent Emini trading system, or for trading anything for that matter and that he had NEVER lost a trade with it. I guess if you are not trading it is hard to lose a trade. Well, I don't know if he was or not, but my point is, first it was GREAT, then it was OK but just for FX trading, then he was glad to get out of there before he lost his money trading, and then it was just the MLM part of it he didn't like (yet he had been trying hard to convince me to join and pitch it to my folks, for the MLM money). I think you can see that the boy has a problem keeping his story straight (and soon he may have to do that in a court of law, where the pressure would be on)
Just after the PN pitch came this one:
Ok here is finally the perfect compliment to
How about a program that will only cost you
Then came this offer:
You have probably seen this thing already, as I do with everything
Several times he pitched me on this MLM conference plan. His goal was
that I would come in under him of course and then pitch it to all my folks:
Ok I am going to make my push for Hot Conference
So I know that peope in North America can just
I still believe it's something worth looking at...
What are your thoughts??
(the rest is edited by me)
Since my mind does not generally work in negative terms (I have always been a positive person, and continue to read at least one self development book a month - and the best positive thinking book ever written - the Bible - over and over), I tend to have trouble understanding the negative thinker. Even when we have offered "Our Opinion" on home biz offers in this very publication (or ones before it in our mail order days) we did not do a smear campaign and put up a site tearing them down, or worse yet start calling the owners names, or their affiliates whores. We know there is more than one way to catch a fish or skin a cat, and if your way does not suit me, then fine. You do it your way, and I'll do it mine.
We have now trained over 600 people on how to trade the S&P Emini (a market our critic "stats guy" did not even know existed until he found our course), and we have had thousands of affiliates so I'm sure there are some that are negative out there (though it is a relative few by our count - he would have you believe that not one single person has enjoyed or appreciated what we taught them). It is not hard to find ones who want to blast everyone and anyone. They are easy to spot. Their failures are always someone else's fault. No matter how many others may be having positive results with the same biz, investment, job, book, etc...
The stats guy claims because no one has contacted him to talk about their long term trading, that the training we offer does not work! Even though we continue to get email after email of satisfied students (and many of them show up on the Thursday eve calls to talk about their success), he claims there are NONE out there. At one time he told me to have all my people contact him or to send him a list of email addresses and phone numbers. WHY? So he can pitch them on his affiliate plan. Who in their right mind would want to contact this guy, or worse yet have their affiliates contact him????? You have to read between the lines with the stats guy, cause he does a LOT of double talk! And it becomes obvious that he really does want to build HIS stats and post HIS ideas regardless of how wild, slanted, or flat out wrong they are.
One thing I know for sure when it comes to trading, or any biz for that matter - but Especially trading - is that you had Better Keep a Positive Attitude or the market will eat you up. So I try to be positive in the wake of such an obvious smear campaign. I have wanted to post some things on this, but I hate the negative slant we Have to cover in order to get the job done. Notice I am not giving out any names here. That is not the purpose, or my style. But, I have come up with a somewhat positive way to rebut the falsehood and out and out lies (more on that in a minute).
I had one other student that I know of that took my course and then violated his Non-Disclosure agreement by marketing his own course. I was upset a little at that too. However, looking back at it, he at least did market his course on it's own merit without trying to tear someone else's down. I don't think he is in business any longer (perhaps the "stats guy" taught him how to run his biz).
One of my more experienced students (who had already traded for years before he took my class) said: "Hey Doug, tell that guy there is more than one way to trade" referring to the smear campaign. That is so true, and not many self-proclaimed experts agree on everything, and sometimes not much of anything - Especially when it comes to trading!
