walstreetpro2 has sent you a message: good shit

cool videos and good job being able to capitalize on this casino they call the stock market i love the shit even though i dont talk of it much in my videos. i often sit and think about how nice it would have been to be a trader during the great nasdaq 5000 run when it seemed like they were just giving fucking money away hell my dad said he made 78000 in one quarter with a mutual fund and being a trader like myself i know if a mutual fund can make that much holy shit i could have made a small fortune trading individual stocks but being able to recognize the shift in sentiment when it went negative was a key factor in not losing your gains shit the only thing i own now is AU,BVN,LIHR and the chinese gaming shit i like a lot to NTES or SNDA

Hey G,

Found your youtubes on Celentes site. Right on, get the word out. The corporate media bullshit is the opiate for the masses, to quell any panics.

I agree with Celente's 2012 intellectual revolution. What is your step by step platform to right the US and Global ship?

Best Regards,

To Greg Simmons:

Just wanted to drop a note to tell you how interesting, challenging, timely and uncannily accurate your website is. You have a most impressive background and obviously, a keen intellect which has been put to an almost unbelievable use in defining and even "divining" the ways of the economy, stock market, corruption and overall condition of the country at this time in our history. It is my hope that many, many people will avail themselves of your knowledge and unusual willingness to freely share with those who are inquisitive and thoughtful purveyors of events affecting us and the world in which we live. A hearfelt "Thank You" for this gift. Respectfully, Slocum, Ph.D.

Dear Gregory,

I just wanted to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed your video series. Thank you for pointing out some of the brash absurdities inherent to the Federal Reserve and bond market. I guess the shell game is over now, but I hear few voices in America questioning some of the basic assumptions of equity value or large banking practices. My grandfather always advocated a return to the gold standard, and now I know why... I can't help feel my culpability in the advertising business, fostering the desires of Americans to buy things they neither need nor can afford. I am certainly not a communist, but there are some basic reassessments we need to do as a society about where our priorities lay and how our financial system rewards value. But I won't hold my breath as the number of people who bother to understand basic principles of our economy are a small minority. Imagine if other specialists in fields like medicine or engineering were allowed to be as unaccountable in their practices...

Anyway, I am right behind you in fostering the "low burn" lifestyle, that is if I can ever manage to build real equity again in this nuclear winter.

All The Best,

Nice pitch dude, it's good to see that you're up and running. I hope you and the family are all doing well. Let's catch up sometime.

I like the content and the delivery......fellini meets kafka meets tarantino with a little raging bull thrown in.


Good luck!

The right to be heard does not automatically include the right to be taken seriously.

“ A tree will be recognized by its fruit “

I have known Greg for almost a decade - and as a result of what his empirical wisdoms produced in my life –He has become a man worth of hearing and a man to be taken very seriously. The fruit his lessons have taught me have produce may area of fruit on my life.

2001 – Told me to buy Gold- He said repeatedly –‘nothing would make you money in the “Buy and Hold Scam” – I started selling equities at peak market levels over time – and eventually began to buy gold = cost avg at approx$450per ounce— and 3, 6 and 12 month T Bills – what T Bills – you were 26( DO the Math – I have been cash at 12800 dow points = HAPPY)
And now I am offered premium to sell my Gold – Why? Because G$ didn’t advise me to BUY gold Paper, gold Stock – He advised me to buy Physical Gold- which if you study the empirical data – was more than a brilliant call in 2001

2004 – Began advising me – basically everyday – You need to sell your real estate and leverage cash to play the System = introduction to Algorithmic Day Trading = SMART investing = If your going to Gamble you might as well give yourself a Fighting Chance. Greg taught me that Investing = Gambling…Investors = Gamblers = There are very few Gamblers who make money Gambling.

2005 Thanks to Greg’s empirical data = the reality behind Debt to income ratios based upon current values, Fannie mea/Freddie Mac Scam. Wholesale Mortgage Fraud on and on – I decided to sell all of my properties
1.Costa Mesa, CA – bought for $350K sold for $775k
2.Ladera Ranch, Ca. Bought for $620K sold for $775k
3.LAdera Ranch, Ca – Bought for $589K sold for $739k

2008 Strong Cash and Gold – sat at the poker table and waited for my chance to play – with the appropriate and necessary Pot Odd—I Bet SIZE accordingly

1. Two Bonds over Notes trades that produces two $9000K risking $1000
2. Successfully System Trading Futures on = Oil , Nat Gas, Euro, Yen, Ten Year Bond, S&P, Gold

2009- taught me a guaranteed win –

Shorting Gold Futures
And Buying American Eagle from the US mint which came with a thirty day return policy—You could book a profit guaranteed within the $30 days regardless of direction -- Absolutely brilliant – and unfortunately it was too good to be true—Because they have now taken the game away from us… The Govt has now entered the Gold Brokering business – How convenient.

Anyways – I have learned by a clear track record that – my friend Greg has been one “worth Listening to”

The truth is in the numbers – and I have a significant amount of wealth today – That I would not have had otherwise.

First let me say I agree with most everything you comment on in your Youtube videos and also have a passion in explaining to people the misconsptions of capital markets. A brief background of me; I started in 2001 at XYZ, ABC & TDY in their trader training program where I was placed on the NASDAQ trading floor making markets. Since then I have worked at a few funds most recently XXX Capital in London where I traded for the risk arbitrage and relative value group until the fund's largest investor pulled out ($2.2b) and then the rest of the investors followed and the doors closed in September. Needless to say I learned a lot about the markets, peoples emotions and risk during the past few years.

In October, after moving back from London to New Jersey I joined my SLK mentor at CMTXXX Co. where we do a mixture of prop trading and sales trading. It has been good because the execution commission's obiously pay the bills and we can sit their putting our plays to work without feeling pressure to make money when there is nothing that warrants a trade.

I would never write a guy out of the blue unless I thought I could really learn from them and had a deep interest in what they were doing. I like your spin on the markets and exposure of this "scam" we call the stock market. My view has always been the market starts with private companies who want the multiple pay of going public. Once public, executives will make a fit run at keeping the company profitable until they can safely sell their interest. Investment banks will work with these companies as well as large institutional investors to create the perception that growth will remain and improve in the future. Insitutions pay the banks ie: research, trading commission and consulting fees to leverage their public soapbox. In my mind why does a company trading at 13 times earnings is VERY RICH! Why shouldn't a company trade at cash or book value? Because we have investment banks artifically creating a future illusion.

Anyway, please keep me posted on what yor future plans are and if you have a chat during market hours etc. My AOL IM is %%&&**(( feel free to hit me up and we can b/s about the markets and what I am seeing during the day. All the best and congrats on the site.

I found your videos on youtube after googling "How investing works" because I was curious. In short: AWESOME is all I can really say about your website and your vids. They make so much sense to me I feel like I could have made it myself, minus a lot of the technical terminology haha, but just the general logical "JUST FREAKING DO IT IF ITS BETTER" mentality is something that I believe in very strongly.

Anyways, I don't know what kind of response I'll get, I really just meant to convey my appreciation for the knowledge you're sharing with the world.

Hi Greg,

Thoroughly enjoyed my excursion through and cannot forget your keen observations in December '07 telling me exactly where things would be today, reality indeed being that arbiter. Thank you again for giving a shit.

Hi Greg,

Off and on I've been following your website for a few weeks now. Truth be told....I find you and your site very interesting, provocative and most of all.....perplexing!!! I have read everything on you website at least a couple of times already....and suffice to say....I'm still trying to figure out what exactly you're trying to say with this website. I don't know if your using this website as a place to vent [all your pent up frustrated feelings]....OR....are you wanting to sell some sort of software product and/or create some exclusive club membership!!! So consequently I thought I'd write an email to see if I could possibly find out.

Question: If Scope Labs currently doesn't have a product available to purchase....will there be one in the near it just wishful thinking on my part?

Well I guess that is it for now....thanks in advance to responding to my email!!!!

Thanks and take care!!!! Great website....I especially like the "Usual Suspects" page....great post!!!

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read the actual definition of "investing" it appears if you are blind, deaf and dumb you qualify!!! It literally says that you are to take financial "risk" with "hope” as a strategy and do zero "work" with regards to effort...
