$1,518.00 Extra Monthly Income
I am extremely satisfied with the Income Producer from Taking Profits. It's actually titled the Spread Trader and I began this back in June 2013 and since my account (that I auto trade) has 31 spread trades with 28 profitable. I commit $2,500.00 to every position and have been able to receive extra income of $1,500.00 per month from the profits and let me say it's exciting every month when I open up the envelop containing a check. I have been so satisfied with the performance I have recommended several people to join and contacted Lou and told him I would write about my experience with this service. So therefore I highly recommend the Spread trader. Below Is listed every spread trade I have had with profits listed. Terry Morris at terrymorris67@outlook.com

Superb Trading
Unknowingly, I came across this site and it caught my interest. I primarily trade my accounts utilizing my own method however earlier this year a friend recommended I consider the services from Taking Profits so I took on a membership and added over the next several months. While I prefer my own analysis, the time constraints limits me from trading as frequently preferred, and thus came Taking Profits services and recommendations.

Currently, I utilize 3 trading programs from Taking Profits. Forex, Futures, Credit Spreads. While I prefer detail with my testimony, I will limit to the dollar amounts resulting from actual trades. Excellent services with astounding trade results.

Forex: I trade $100,000.00 - $300,000.00 leveraged STD EUR/USD.

My Account is profitable by $49,620.00 since membership started.

My overall account value is in excess of $750,000.00

---------------------------------------------------------

E Mini Futures. My account is profitable by $42,450.00.

Membership started March 2013. 47 trades produced 42 profitable.

----------------------------------------------------------

Credit Spreads. This is a conservative service when compared to the risk level of Futures and Forex,

that has thus produced consistent profits monthly. My membership began August '13 I trade 50 - 80 contracts per position with my account profitable by $31,375.00 including commissions. My broker being e Options.

--------------------------------------------------------

I also have my personal account of $7.5 mil utilizing my own stock selections. I primarily trade large cap and by utilizing a trend methodology of moving averages rate of change, I have out performed the S & P by over 75% in 2013.

--------------------------------------------------------

In summarization, Taking Profits has performed exceptional thus far and as long as their system remains consistently profitable I will continue membership status for all three services.

Profitable Trading To All and Good Luck in 2014 and Beyond,

Jim

Income Producer is a Good One
Throughout the three years I use this overall money is good and consistent. I look for data that gives smaller profits and offers better success rate and that is what I get with this. There was one period when profit were not coming that was august 2012 buy I expect with all systems there is nothing that will produce perfection throughout each month of every year. Most positions are Spy verticals opposite of direction and it has to be said that the trend analysis and data is very good with direction. My initial goal was to make $500 a month in withdraws and keep balance in tact. Throughout 3 years this has been achieved with the one exception of last year in august 2012, but all others worked well and my account balance is back to starting capital, so I draw out $16,350.00 in three years money where I continue to pay down house mortgage. This is a good one if someone wants conservative cash flow you will not be a disappointed person. Abdul Khan

Spread offer solid profits every month
I have been using Taking Profits for years, as I started with the stock portfolio's and worked up to a few more as my trading expanded. I have multiple brokerage accounts all with different objectives from aggressive to conservative and with that comes different strategies. I find myself leaning more towards option trading, specifically spreads, credits, verticals, and a long put and/or call now and then. I utilize several sources for trade ideas and that is what has brought me here to give my two cents about Taking Profits Spread Trader. BTW, I also have their Power Options and E-Mini Futures services as well. So I'll review all three. First Spread Trader which I'm very well satisfied with as the monthly profits have been an excellent source of additional income. Essentially, the positions are credit spread on ETF's and stocks. I especially enjoy the near term expirations as they use weekly expirations as well as monthly. I have not seen an expiration longer than 4 weeks. While this can be favorable as well as unfavorable with the dollar amount of the credit, I prefer shorter term accepting a lower credit and with that said, the service is an excellent one which has provided both income and growth. I withdraw between $1500.00 - $2000.00 each month directly from this service and leave capital in the account to build the balance. I had this service for nearly three years now it's very consistent. With all that said, Yes, I recommend this service The next service I use from Taking Profits is the Futures E mini. I started in January of this year and had 752 points of profits with a W/L Ratio of 96%. At $50 a point, you can do the math and my profits are over $37k. Needless to say anyone who trades e mini has got to use this program. It's not a day trader. positions may be held for several days. There also have been gold trades but primarily they recommend the S&P E-mini.. If you trade futures, definitely go with this product. The third service I use is Power Options and since most of my capital is across the spread and futures I allocate 2k to each trade. Happy with the service as well which recommends straight puts and calls. Profitable every month so fay, so this one too is a good one.

Repeat bad performance
Returning unsatisfied customer......

I used taking profits before when option lock was around, and that had one too many losses, so I cut my losses and walked away the first time, this review doesn't make the pain of loosing 20k just go away, being self employed I truly realize that I make a living off of the reviews of my business.

I decided to take another leap of faith with this guy Lou Russo, I was sent an email with a spreadsheet of amazing trade results from trades of the "5 Star Swing Trader" subscription, posted were only one loss at a time, only to receive terrible trades after signing up, 4 loosing trades in a row, and what makes it more frustrating is if these positions would have been kept on hold there would be no getting whipsawed losses. My account has little money left, I will keep that there and keep the subscription, hopefully one day be able to give a great review.....(HOPE)!

$147,251.00 in profits
Super. Hit on 33 of 37 options trades making $147k + over 3 1/2 months. In the Power Option , Lou recommends long Puts and Calls and since I joined I have received 37 options trade and 33 of them have been profitable. I have a few other option letters who were calling for a correction since March but Lou's analysis said to stay long and he was right with the market making new highs. I'm an experienced trader but I'm on the road for most of the day so I use Global Auto Trade. Their executions are incredible. I called Lou Russo a few weeks ago after he made me over $80,000.00 in late April and early May with his trades and told him I would soon go to a review web site and thank him publicly. This is a fantastic option trading program and I believe anyone who wants to trade options can make a lot of money with this.

Spreads are making me money also Spy Trader Too
Been with Taking Profits for 2 months now and I have been using the Spy option trade and the Spread Trader. My plan is to take out profits every month to either pay some bills and for some extra entertainments. The SPY trader makes long option trades sometimes on the SPY and so far I took out $880.00 profit each month and with the Spread Trader I have gotten $754.00 per month, so between the 2 services I am making $1,634.00 per month in checks I'm withdrawing from my accounts and I still have all my original money ( and a little more) in the accounts. As I write this there are 2 open spreads and no SPY option trades, so I'm waiting for the new one to come out. If you are looking for a service that makes good, solid high probability profit picks then go with this. If you want market updates, and analysis, and insight, then don't because they just make the trades and send them to you and your broker for auto trade. All I have to say is it's expensive but so far well worth the price. So I give Taking Profits a 5 across the board. I got this site from a friend Debbie and I also recommended it to a few people I am trading market information about. I like it a lot and will most likely continue to use auto trade. Also, the Spreads are some monthly and some weekly expirations. Last 2 were beauty with SPY Puts that expired worthless so I got to keep the $60.00 per contract profit. It's very exciting to have a check come every month. I extend best luck to everyone. We all want to make money. Bob D.

5 Star Swing Trader has Excellent Profits
I have been with the 5 Star for a year. Here are my trades below.

6/6/2012 Jul 130 Calls 57.50% $1,150.00

6/20/2012 Jul 135 Puts 15.00% $300.00

9/24/2012 Oct 146 Calls 9.95% $199.00

11/8/2012 Dec 139 Puts 9.25% $185.00

11/26/2012 Dec 140 Puts 18.00% $360.00

1/7/2014 Feb 1450Puts -9.95% -$199.00

1/24/2013 Mar 150 Calls 14.00% $280.00

2/5/2013 Mar 150 Calls 137.00% $2,740.00

3/5/2013 Apr 155 Calls 16.12% $322.40

3/18/2013 May 60 Calls -32.55% -$651.00

4/29/2013 May 60 Calls 92.87% $1,857.40

$10,237.80



I am trading $2000.00 per positions and my account started with $2500.00 so I had $500.00 on the side so I am up $9,607.00 after commissions which is 380% on my starting capital of $2500.00. The 5 Star is one position at a time so you have to be patient as he doesn't fire them off. Sometimes I use auto trade which is a very nice function some brokers have but I like the excitement so a lot of times I execute the trade myself. I have almost 4 times my money from this time last year and I'm hopeful if I can have another year like this I may be looking at 50k in my account. More money than I have ever had. I am now considering the Power Options as the service has several positions open rather than the one in 5 Star. So, I recommend this service.. It's expensive at 2500.00 up front for a year which comes to 207 a month all up front. I hesitated when signing up last year then just pull the trigger on it and it's worked out for me very well.
