We continue to beat the market. In 2010 our stock portfolio was up 22.6% while the S&P 500 up only 12.8%. As of the end of July, 2011 our stock portfolio is up 12.5% vs. 2.75 for the S&P 500.

All of our trades for 2006 through 2009 are available for review. To protect our current members, we will add all of our 2010 trades in July 2011. You can see all of the 2010 results by signing up for a four-week trail membership. As for trading, we encourage users to opt for the bitcoin trading app that is designed to make it easy for anyone to get started with trading crypto.


Thanks for making investing so easy to understand. And for growing my IRA. I am on my way to financial heaven.
