Part 1: 3 Common Japanese Candlesticks

Friday, July 24th, 2015

Friday, July 24th, 2015 by Tim Lanoue

Welcome back everyone! Regardless of the reason why you are here today I would just like to make it known that this article is only part 1 of 6 to come so make sure you stick around to benefit from all 6 parts.  With that being said we are going to cover perhaps one of the most important technical topics that could very well dictate your success as a binary options investor.

Now I know some of you may be thinking how can the formation of Japanese Candlesticks and Candlestick patterns dictate your success as a binary options investor?  Well the answer to that is quite simple and straightforward.  You see what many people fail to realize would be that the formation of certain Japanese candlestick formations are the backbone behind many of the technical analysis based trading strategies applied by traders from all investment industries.  Strategies that rely on trends, reversals, breakouts and the break of support and resistance levels are all based off the formation of common Japanese candlestick formations.  A better way to understand and appreciate the value of Japanese candlestick formations would be as followed:  Japanese candlestick formations are the micro aspect for a technical trading strategy while the actual strategy and technical indicators serve as the macro aspect of the trading strategy.  To further break it down, we have order flow which is the summation of all buy and sell orders over any duration of time, then we have Price Action which is the direct derivative of order flow and is directly responsible for the formation of price candles.  Then we move forward to candlestick formations and then finally the application of technical trading strategies and technical indicators.  In the flow chart below you can grasp a better understanding of this concept.

Now for those of you who aren’t familiar with Japanese Candlesticks I would highly suggest that you read Mike’s Candlestick Charts Guide (hyperlink:  Not only does it cover the ins and outs associated with the formation of Japanese candlestick charting but it also serves as a perfect introduction on how to apply candlestick charting with binary options.  Once you have read it then I would suggest and recommend that you come back and finish reading Part 1.

Now that you have a better understanding on how Japanese candlesticks are formed and their advantages within the binary options industry let’s move forward!  The first type of candlestick we are going to cover today is known as a Marubozu.  Marubozu candlesticks are the most common and they are better represented in the image below.  As you can see there are two types of Marubozu candles, a bullish and a bearish.  A bearish Marubozu candlestick as you may already know indicates to us that the sellers are in control while on the other hand a bullish Marubozu candlestick indicates to us that the buyers are in the control.

The next type of candlestick that we will be covering are known as Spinning Tops.  Spinning Tops candlesticks can appear as a bearish or bullish spinning top and they often indicate to investors that market indecision is currently present between the buyers and sellers.  As you can see in the image below, Spinning Tops have a small body while their shadows, also known as wicks, appear relatively strong on both the upper and lower end of the candle body.  If you see a spinning top candlestick form during an uptrend it often signifies to investors that a bearish reversal is about to occur since the availability of buyers are diminishing and vice versa for a spinning top formation during a downward trend.

The third type of candlestick is perhaps one of the most variable type of candlesticks.  Doji Candlesticks are candlesticks that have the same opening and closing price indicating to us that neither the buyers nor sellers were able to establish control.  Among the four type of Doji candlesticks would be Long-Legged Doji, Gravestone Doji, Four Price Doji and DragonFly Doji, which are better represented and understood in the picture below.  If you see the formation of any one of these four candlesticks during the trend of an asset it often indicates to us that a reversal will more than likely take place.

Understanding common Japanese candlestick formations can greatly enhance your knowledge and success as a binary options investor.  Remember the formation of common Japanese candlesticks are the backbone of almost every technical analysis based trading strategy.  Without these formations there would be zero technical based trading strategies or approaches.  To learn more about Japanese Candlestick formations and what they indicate make sure to stick around for Part 2!  As always if you guys have any questions please feel free to leave them below and I will do my best to answer each and every one of them for you!  For those of who you are new to this blog as well and enjoyed this article please feel free to become part of our Facebook Signals group.  We aren’t just the biggest binary options Facebook community but we are also a family!

FB App Bot is a “Milfy” SCAM!!

Sunday, July 19th, 2015

This website is so annoying and definitely a SCAM! We’ll get into the evidence shortly but first I have to note that I was really irritated by the pop-up video urging you to stay, as soon as you attempt to leave the page! What does Facebook have anything to do with money-making schemes? I have no idea! Perhaps they are trying to hijack some authority from a well-known social network site? It’s probably the case since they also featured the Forbes, Tech Crunch and Wall Street logos as if the FB App Bot was ever endorsed anywhere besides on a few unknown sites.

Now guys, don’t get too excited, Melissa Walters the “CEO of” happens to also work for as a testimonial actress. Could this be a coincidence and Melissa Walters is in fact a Millionaire CEO of a ‘fancy looking’ pitch page? I would highly doubt it since the actors of are only getting around $5-$30 per each fake testimonial gig. This is very common with money-making schemes, it’s really easy to hire actors to say whatever you want. To prove this point I hired an actress myself to lie on camera:

Katie Harvey Exposed (she was behind ProfitwithCindy, a similar scam)

Notice this “money paid to users” widget on the side, this is a marketing tool that similar scams are using, the entire FB App Bot website looks like half of the scams I previously reviewed. Claims to make you rich over night, actors, annoying pop-ups. I don’t even feel like writing an intelligent review on, but I do understand that many people are new to online trading or even to the Internet, and they might give it a try. After all, no one can deny that Melissa is a convincing, super-hot actress, but trust me that she is not the person who will help you make money online and definitely not with binary options.


I am also shocked that they used Mark Zucherberg’s photo on the page, he should definitely sue them for a few millions. Who gave them permission to use his picture? Scam-artists are getting more reckless and careless, some don’t even have warnings and disclaimers.

Check out my Binary Options Scams list and you’ll find many similar fraud sites, my questions is: why would you even want to take the risk? I surely hope you’re reading this before you deposited money because trust me that you will lose everything, and if you already deposited money, share your feedback so others can be aware of the true nature of this offer, as well as the trading results generated by this “so-called” profitable auto trading system.

The FB App Bot just came out a few days ago so some of you might receive emails with invites, usually the invitations include a few weird sentences and a link directing you to the site. Don’t ever trust email solicitors, they have no incentive to help you and all they do in reality, is send out millions of emails hoping to fish for victims, it’s a sleazy job. It’s a game of numbers, they figure that out of 1000 people at least 2-3 people will sign up with the FB App Bot and they’ll get paid as soon as you make this horrible mistake and get with “Melissa Walters”.. By the way, look up the name Melissa Walters on Google and you won’t find her on any sites that are not related to the FB App Robot.

Binary options trading is now a regulated industry and many brokers engage in fair business practices, have proper regulations and the brokers I am referring to will never work with money-making schemes. EU regulated brokers such as, and have clearly stated hat they never did and never will, work with any of the shady scams that come out on a daily basis now. If you are absolutely new to binary options, consider to start with a Free demo account. I also encourage you to visit my Binary Options YouTube channel where you can find over 240 videos on tips, strategies and scam alerts. If there is one thing I really want you to take from my FB App Bot Review, is that research is the key. Don’t trust offers that seem too good to be true.

If you have any questions or feedback, please comment below this article and you are also welcome to email me directly at (Michael Freeman) I will be glad to help you with complaints and disputes if you already signed up with

Stochastic Oscillator and Bollinger Band 5 minute strategy

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015 by James Frangelton

We have yet another strategy here that you can implement when trading. Its important that you demo this strategy before actually going live. The opportunities aren’t massively common, however if used accurately this can help improve the way you trade. This strategy can be used along with other strategies like support and resistance, price action and swing trading.

The stochastic oscillator is a momentum based indicator that uses support and resistance to determine its position and was developed by Dr. George Lane in the last 50s. It refers to a point in the current price in relation to the price range over a period of time.

The strategy is simple and can be applied to a 5 minute, 15 minute or 30 minute time frame. For this example lets use a 5 minute chart. The first condition you are looking for is a candle breaking the UPPER or LOWER Bollinger Band (obviously a bullish candle for the upper and bearish candle for the lower). Once this condition has been met you must then draw your attention to the Stochastic Oscillator. There are two white dotted lines, the upper line is known as the 80 line and the lower is known as the 20 line. We are looking for the stochastics to have traveled above the 80 line for a bullish candle traveling outside the upper Bollinger Band, or below the 20 line for a bearish candle traveling outside the lower Bollinger Band. Once you have identified this you are going to wait for the next candle to form before you get into the trade. Once the next candle has formed the stochastics lines should have crossed and be heading back towards the white line. If the stochastic lines have not yet crossed or they are becoming further apart do not take the trade, wait until all of the conditions are met. If the conditions have been met, place a trade in the opposite direction of the previous candle for 5 minutes.

Stochastic Oscillator and Bollinger Band 5 Minute Strategy explained on YouTube

In this example below you can see all of the conditions of the trade were met and the call would have indeed won for a 5 minute trade.


Basic Trading Tips:

Avoid USD/JPY or JPY pairs.
Avoid trading during news events
Don’t chase losses, move onto another asset


Try trading commodities
I find SILVER during the asian session works quite well
Look for volatility when trading currencies
Do not trade against short term aggressive trends

I hope you find some of this information useful and either implement this strategy or the Stochastic Oscillator into your own trading strategy as further confirmation. You can email me on, leave a comment below or visit my website and select “contact us” if you are unsure of anything!

CASHCODE is a SCAM!!! Clear your Cookies!

Sunday, July 12th, 2015

Some of my subscribers have been asking about a new Auto Trader that was released recently: CashCode by Robert Allan. I also received a few complaints about them, triggering me to write a thorough review to find out if CashCode was indeed a scam. Robert Allan claims that no software has made so many millionaires as his CashCode software. He says that “If you simply listen to this video, and do what it says – you, too, can be a millionaire 60 days from now.” The title of the website says that there are “10 licenses left.” And that the Last check was on Jul 12, 20153:12:38.” After watching the video for a few minutes, the number of licenses left goes down to 7. Here’s a screenshot:


Let’s run a small check on this. I’m going to clear my cookies now and go to again. Here’s another screenshot:


7 minutes have passed and the number of licenses went up from 7 to 10… Okay, do I need to continue writing this review or do we have enough evidence that CashCode is a scam?

When trying to leave the website, a pop-up window appears with an offer that’s about to expire in one minute. “You have been randomly selected by our system to have a 1-on-1 private session with Cash Code creator, Robert Allan (Value $100,000 – Today it’s free).” They want you to input our email address, or you can close this message and continue watching their video. Wow, a $100,000 value! I’m definitely going to enter my email… Another video then appears with Robert Allan telling me: “You just did yourself a big favor. You put yourself here, which is exactly five and half minutes from this” and then a fake screenshot appears of Robert Allan’s account with OptionMint, one of the scam brokers that are available with Cash Code. The balance shows $5,927.17 and the date is April 9, 2009. Why would he show us his account 6 years before CashCode was even released? Another problem is that OptionMint did not even exist on 2009. So something definitely smells fishy with this Cash Code leading me to believe this might be a scam.

I also went ahead and tried their live chat. They were actually very responsive. I asked them why is Robert Allan’s account snapshot from 2009 and they said they didn’t know. I told them I lost a lot of money with various scams and asked if they could promise that this is not a scam. Their response: “yes, I can promise you that this is not a scam.” They also claimed they don’t have any information about Robert Allan or his location.  However, the website itself shows some of Cash Code’s traders with their total profit, when they had started and their average profits per day:


To my amusement, all of them are from Israel! It’s funny because Robert, Walter, Damien, Laura and Brian and NOT Israeli names. Also, CashCode was released on June and the dates shown on the Top Trader’s list are April 2015 at the latest and February 2012 at the earliest in the case of Robert Allan himself. Wait, didn’t his account say 2009??? As most of my subscribers already know, I’m currently located in Israel. The Cash Code website is designed to always show this fake trader’s list as if they are from the country of the person viewing the website. Maybe they thought that it might make you believe that you can also reach this sort of success. So if they lie about the countries and dates, what makes you think they don’t lie about the profit figures as well? Oh, and I forgot to mention, they lie about the pictures of their top traders as well, except maybe for Robert Allan, if he is in fact the creator of this scam and not just an actor hired by the team! Here are a few examples:




Summing up this review, I believe I have enough evidence to say that Cash Code is definitely a scam. Please check out my recommended binary options signals services. I hope that this review will reach as many people around the world as possible so that I will not get anymore emails from people who got scammed by CashCode and lost their money! You should always be careful before investing money with binary option brokers and services. I recommend that you check into my new FaceBook Signals Group, which has been performing really well. You can watch some of my latest videos on YouTube with real live action, testimonials and honest traders working together to achieve good trading results with the help of a supportive community.

The Truth, the Past and Mike’s Real Name!

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

I have to admit that I do feel kind of shy to tell you everything about me, Michael Freeman. I never actually shared my life’s story with any of my subscribers and YouTube viewers as my main focus is binary options trading, my YouTube channel is not a Vlog, or in other words, a YouTube channel documenting a YouTuber’s personal life. However, today I received an email by a person who claims to have exposed my real name, address and phone number. This individual is an affiliate working for a different website and unlike other members of this industry, I don’t feel like this individual deserves to have his name written here.

I have to thank him though, because he gave me this idea to tell you my life’s story and also address the accusations once again made by this individual. First before I continue, know that we’re possibly dealing with a 14-year-old kid who seems to have an obsession with me and loves to call me a “FA**OT” and a Retard in every sentence and on every post written on his website, irregardless if the content has anything to do with me.

Before I continue and provide you with my Life’s story, in a narrowed down version that fits a blog post, I want to let people in this industry know something very important. Binary options traders are not interested in blog wars, in foul language and obsessive hate campaigns. They are looking for a Reliable Signals Service or a Community and help with trading in genera. The last thing they care to read about is a bunch of drama, especially if it’s completely biased, they are looking to make money. I don’t think that a real trader would have the time to sit around and plot how to destroy Mike’s name, if he was into any type of serious business.

People who watched my YouTube videos and read my articles, know that I am a person they can trust and that I managed to establish a successful signals group on Facebook. We now have live evidence, webinars posted on my channel, endless of real testimonials by members who love the group and make money with the group. The point that I am trying to make is that, whatever you end up writing about me, makes people curious to learn more about me and when people get to know me, they immediately realize that all the attempts to discredit me are false. This is also one of the reasons why I never really responded, even though it’s been going on for more than a year now. There’s a reason why my channel is the biggest on YouTube in the binary options niche and why my blogs are viral.

You can read more on this topic in a guest post on It’s an important article!

Michael Freeman’s response to the accusations on the Forum

Let’s continue, so today I received an email from this affiliate marketer who claims that he found the truth, he “exposed my real identity” … In a blog post, he shared an old photo of me from LinkedIn with the name Emmanuel Matityahu on it instead of Michael Freeman. He also revealed that I worked as a Marketing Coordinator for Google a few years ago. All this information is true so far… The address and phone number are actually incorrect but everything else was right in the money, but guess what? It was true before I changed my name LEGALLY to Michael Freeman. “You Got Me!” I must be a scammer if I didn’t like the name my parents gave me and decided to take matters into my own hands, of course!

Now why would I do change my name though? About 7-8 years ago while I was working for a water filtering company as a support/sales agent, my boss decided that my name should be Michael. I liked it! However I didn’t change it officially at the time, yet everyone around me started calling me Michael and it seemed to fit me well. My boss thought it was a friendly sales name and don’t forget that my birth name kind of sounds ancient and biblical, doesn’t it? So I decided to change my name! What’s the big deal? My name was previously Emmanuel Matityahu and now it’s Michael Freeman, end of story.

Ironically, that same person who accuses me of being “retarded”, failed to realize that over at Google, you won’t pass the job interview if you are retarded, in fact, getting the job at Google was one of the most difficult challenges I faced in my entire life. The catch is that I never really liked to work for people and take orders from managers, I am a free person and being a Free Man was my final goal. The 14 restaurants at the Google-Plex and Ping Pong tables were a lot of fun, but in reality it was all created in order to “retain the employees”. Eventually I decided to go in the same direction in life that most of you decided to take, and I will be forever thankful for finding online trading, establishing a great network of traders and helping my subscribers avoid scams. It’s a full-time job and trust me that it’s not easy, however it’s the direction I decided to take and I am happy with my life.

Emmanuel Matityahu – Former Employee at Google (Mountain View, California)


Here is a snapshot from my passport showing the name change, my birth place (USA), I am a dual citizen of Israel and the United States. I was born in 1986 at the Redwood City, California hospital to Israeli parents.


Here is a snapshot the angry affiliate shared on his website:


“you totally got me there buddy..”

Being a fast learner I managed to educate myself and develop trading techniques, which helped me generate some decent profits in 2012 and I decided to establish a YouTube channel and share my tips, strategies and warnings with the world. To all the affiliates who are jealous I must say, it’s not my fault that my channel became so viral with 14,000 subscribers at the moment. You should’ve been a partner instead, or at least, you should’ve minded your own business. Let me be me, and you can be you, unless you are not happy with yourself and you feel like spending your entire life picking on others, in this case, I can totally understand where you are coming from.

Let’s move on, so why am an Israeli and American and where do I currently stay? You got to ask my parents this question, my mom and dad decided to have a better life in the US, and there I was born and given a citizenship immediately. Now, since my parents are Jewish, I also qualified for an Israeli citizenship. As a kid my parents divorced and my dad stayed in the US and my mom moved  to Israel with me and my brother. I spent a few years as a kid growing up in Israel, but my dad managed to eventually convince me that life in the US is much better and I ended up moving to the US where I spent most of my adult life. Just like most kids who grew up in California, I was a spoiled kid, driving my car drunk on Highway 1 and on that road between San Jose to Santa Cruz (not recommended), this was during the time I lived in Half Moon Bay. I attended Half Moon Bay High where things got really wild I have to admit.

I also spent a lot of time wakeboarding both in Israel and in the US, this pictures are from Eilat, Israel. The Red Sea is not ideal for wakeboarding.. I much rather waterboard on sweet late water but I’ll do it anywhere, anytime!!!


Today I am Michael Freeman, the leader of the most successful Facebook signals group and community. I posted an article in the past on ‘the reasons why we are  so successful’ and why my business model works and delivers great ITM results to our following members in the group & for the admins who are heavily rewarded on a weekly basis!

10 Reasons Why we are the best Binary Options Signals Service and Community Online!

I don’t want to go on and brag about my life, in fact, it wasn’t a smooth ride. I worked really hard for many years while I was still in College and paid for my own education even though my family had the money to afford it. If anyone wants to judge me, you better have a look in the mirror first and tell me what you see, and “If your slate is not clean then you can throw stones”. I say this to everyone who decided to negatively campaign against me. You are dealing with the wrong retard, the Michael Freeman who people choose to trust for the right reasons!

Join Mike’s Binary Options Group on Facebook

I encourage our group’s members, visitors and everyone to share your feedback. If you have any questions for me or anything else you would like to know about my group or about my personal life, be sure to respond and I’ll be glad to share as many details as I can, of course everyone deserves some level of privacy so I won’t give you the password to my email or the names of my ex-girlfriends, otherwise I will really be exposed!! haha what can I say? This is me.

I should also add that one of the reasons why I wasn’t so excited about sharing my association with Israel is because I have many loyal followers who live in countries that are considered enemy countries, so I wasn’t sure if they would accept me as a friend, mentor or as anything. However, in our group we now have people from all over the world and no one seems to care too much about other people’s religion or personal life.

We don’t have time to waste and our only goal is to focus on trading so we can continue and provide our members with great results. All the evidence to support my claims that the group is successful are available on my YouTube channel. We get a lot of support, my admins are amazing traders and I am blessed to have the best traders working with me and delivering great results, on a daily basis, to my group’s members and keeping us in the lead! The group together generates over 30 signals every day and our top admin never dropped below %80 ITM for months, in fact is current ITM is around %86!!!! No wonder he nailed his last LIVE Webinar with 10/10 ITM’s in a row, resulting in a major success to the many traders who attended the webinar. His performance results are not based on 50-70 trades, Afzal delivered 100’s of signals over the last months and his performance is undeniably above any ITM performance you will consistently get from anyone I’ve ever seen trade binary options!!! I look for talents and we seem to find each other. I also posted an article dedicated to Afzal, an open letter to my favorite binary options trader!

Mike’s YouTube Channel – You will find real testimonials, live webinars and more information regarding my group. If you are interested to trade professionally, it’s about time you should join us and quit wasting your time.

P.S. – Where do I now live? I almost forgot, I recently purchased an apartment in Tel Aviv, Israel. It’s expensive and it’s not worth it! Don’t ever buy an apartment in Tel Aviv and make the same mistake that I made lol. The only good thing about it is that I can rent this apartment quickly and get out of here any time and move back to the US, which is my plan in the very near future, especially if Iran decides to attack. You never know ?!  😉

The Aussie Method is a SCAM and another joke!

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

We’ve seen the China Millionaire, the German Robot SCAM sites and now.. ‘what do you know?!’ The Aussie Method is here and I am about to ‘kill it’ with an awful review such as I did with every viral scam that was launched and solicited to online traders. Before I continue, I know that many review sites are very manipulative, so know right now that you are not about to read another promotional ‘The Aussie Method Review’, this is an article written by me, Michael Freeman, and in case you don’t know me, I posted over 230 videos on YouTube related to binary options trading and my channel is currently the biggest in the industry, I don’t promote BS to online traders.

I specialize in exposing scams such as The Aussie Method, I get over 300 emails every day and some include complaints and warnings and guess which software people are complaining about this time? The Aussie Method by “Jake Pertu”, the imaginary CEO or founder of the software, a person that you won’t find in a Google search, another fake identity such as “Cindy Taylor” from Profit with Cindy who turned out to be Katie Harvey (an actress from and the rest of the garbage that’s being mainly promoted via email campaigns, targeting unsuspecting binary options traders or other folks who are trying to “make a living” online.

You should really check out my new parody video on Binary Options Scams!! Most of my YouTube videos are educational and deal with actual binary options trading, targeting an audience of day traders who are interested in legitimate binary options education. The following video might give you some insight as to how the scams operate and how funny the claims they make are…when you think about it seriously! I really wish I knew about the website before posting my latest video, I would’ve added it to the parody as it’s nothing but another sad joke, I encourage you to check it out before I continue with my Aussie Method Review.

Binary Options Scams “You don’t really want it” directed by Michael Freeman 

I guess I am going to dedicate it to the SCAM by “Jake Pertu”..

Be sure to Subscribe to Michael Freeman 😉 and here is a link to my Binary Options Blacklist!

The website is a SCAM! If you do some research and compare the structure, pitch page, voice over, sales tactics to some of the other auto trading fraud sites I reviewed in the past and mentioned in this video.. such as Rock The Stock, Binary Hijack, Insider’s John and so on, you will find that all the scam websites are almost identical! Fake testimonials by the same actors, such as this young pretty lady I found acting for the “Binary Vault” and NOW also for The Aussie Method website. Let’s admit it, she is actually kind of cute but in reality she is just another actress and here she is once again, giving a fake testimonial! After Katie Harvey I think I am about to expose this girl, I don’t care how cute she is to be honest. Check her out: actress – fake review for the Aussie Method SCAM!


Ladies and gentlemen, by now you should already get the idea. In the online trading industry there are too many scam websites, created by online marketers and not by actual day traders with technical analysis experience. unfortunately the creators of The Aussie Method are clever and many new traders are probably going to make the mistake and sign up with this auto trading software, thinking that it’s a great opportunity. It’s human nature to try to look for short-cuts, but if you are looking to do things right, you should take every job, career or gig you are interested to try, step-by-step. Naturally in this case, signing up with a free demo account or paper-trading for a little while, might be a good way to start. You can also check out my recommended binary options signals services and you should know that not every service is a scam but unfortunately many of the ‘high production’ websites are created by online marketers and too many people email me after they lost all their money, therefore I hope that this review on the new Aussie Method, will reach as many people around the world as possible! You can also check into my new Facebook Signals Group, just watch some of my latest videos on YouTube with real live action, testimonials and honest traders working together to achieve good trading results with the help of a supportive community.

Rock The Stock is the latest Viral SCAM! Stay Away!!

Monday, June 15th, 2015

Dear subscribers! A very important warning! A new, potentially dangerous scam that goes by the name ROCK THE STOCK has just been released today, from the creators of Insider John scam, the Binary Matrix Pro scam, the Insured Profits scam and the Binary Boom scam. Many fake websites have already been promoting this even before it had been released. and already published a scam warning. I wanted to wait until the official release of so that I can have a closer look at this new scam and give a more detailed description of this fake and possibly hazardous product. To remind you, the creators of BinaryBoom infected their users with computer viruses as was revealed by comments on the BinaryoptionsWatchDog review. There’s no reason why they might not do that again, and this time with more sophisticated and harmful viruses. So let’s have a close look at the RockTheStock scam.

Opening the website, I’m seeing a panel that shows a list of the “Newest Members,” with a total count of members standing at 4,739 and with a 68 new members in the last 24 hours. Remember – this website was just launched a few minutes before I started writing this article. Here’s the proof – this is where the site led me before the launch:


The time now while I’m writing this review is 5:06 PM EST on Sunday 6/14/2015. And here’s how the Rock The Stock homepage looks now just one hour after the official release:


So obviously, we’re dealing with liars. But that’s not surprising. So let’s have a look at the Rock the Stock video and see if it answers the question of “How To Easily Make Between $8,000 And $10,000 Per Week With Binary Options… on STOCKS.” Here’s a clue to what this new scam is all about – an AutoTrader that trades specifically stocks.

The RockTheStock actor is standing in Wall Street to make an impression that this is a real stocks trading software. But the man is an actor who probably doesn’t know a single thing about trading, please don’t forget that. He says he’s there to find the truth, the answer to how to really make money with binary options trading. In the end of this review, I will answer this question, but let’s have a look at their answer for a minute. The actors goes to try and find “real traders” and ask them this question. Takes him some time, but eventually he finds their other actor who says his a stock broker and agrees to give a couple of minutes of his time. The random “binary options trader” AKA actor says that the answer is no, and that money can only be made by trading stocks. How convenient! Lies on top of lies… He then meets a fourth actor and he asks if they’re using a software or manual trading. He says that they’re only using software! Again, they’re setting everything in place to convince YOU, that the only way to make money with binary options is to use a software to trade stocks – and then they sell you their Rock the Stock software that does just that.

But don’t let the men in the suits fool you. I am Michael Freeman and I’ve been seeing hundreds of people making money by manually trading currency pairs by following signals with short expiries (15 minutes to 1 hour mostly). Actually this is the only way to make long term profits. Most Auto Traders will not be able to achieve long-term success, especially not the once released by scam-artist.

I hope it’s already obvious to you that this is a scam, but I want to go ahead and see if there is a risk of getting your computer infected if you sign up with So I’m going to try and join the program. Now anyone who tried to join different binary options scams knows that the normal course of events is that you enter your information and are then directed to the broker to deposit your funds and then granted access to an online platform that makes it easy for you to lose your money FAST. With the Rock the Stock scam, in contrast, when you click sign up, a download automatically begins and an executable (.exe) file is downloaded to your system. WARNING: DO NOT OPEN THIS FILE. THERE IS A VERY HIGH CHANCE THAT YOUR COMPUTER WILL BE INFECTED WITH VIRUSES, TROJAN HORSES, ETC. That was exactly the case with these people’s last scam – the notorious BinaryBoom scam.

Here is a short warning I posted on YouTube – Rock The Stock Review (An honest one!!)

I believe I have made my point and that I’ve been very clear. If you sign up with the RockTheStock scam, do so at your own risk. I promised to give my own answer to the question of how to really make money with binary options. The answer is quite simple. Always choose a fully EU regulated broker to avoid getting scammed by the criminal brokers that work such scams. This will ensure that you will be able to withdraw your earnings. Also, choose a signal service that is trustworthy, such as my manual Signals Group on FaceBook which provides consistent %70-%85+ ITM to the community members as well as almost free webinars and educational sessions. Please visit my YouTube Channel (Mike’s Binary Options Channel) to learn about trading. Also visit my complete Binary Options Blacklist for more warnings. I encourage you to help me spread the word out by commenting below this review. Be safe and happy trading!

Katie Harvey AKA kymmypops is a SCAM Artist!

Saturday, June 13th, 2015

It’s Michael Freeman and today is about time I expose Katie Harvey, the young woman who played the role of the rich girl, “Cindy Taylor”, showcased on the SCAM website, and now she is apparently working with the, as well as the “24-year-old single mother” who made it with the Financial Echo Success Story SCAM, and I am sure you guessed it by now, all of the 3 websites are fraud money-making schemes and Katie Harvey is an actress, people just love to hire, as she is obviously willing to lie on camera, promoting literally everything, as long as you pay her… and she is undeniably charming I must admit.

On Fiverr, Katie Harvey aka kymmypops,  is a top seller with over 10,000 gigs ordered which is really impressive and I am sure that not everything she did, involved the cooperation with fraud sites like the, and, but the fact that she is actively working with many scams that became really viral in our industry and cost newbie online traders, millions of dollars, I think that even if only 1 of the orders that Katie Harvey accepted on was a scam, it’s enough to conclude that she is a liar and a scam artist. In reality she is involved with many fishy websites and I am sure that the 3 websites I listed are just the ‘tip of the iceberg’, as she is an accomplished actress now, who’s willing to lie for money and not all actors on Fiverr agree to lie. I checked some of the other profiles and found that some of them clearly state that they do not accept orders associated with porn, gambling or money-making schemes. I guess Katie is looking to make more sales…

To prove my point I hired her to endorse me & lie on camera for a few seconds, check this out:

The problem is not just with Katie Harvey but in reality it’s also the responsibility of to ban users like Katie and buyers who attempt to hire people to lie and provide them with fake testimonials.  I am guessing that, one of the top visited website in the world, can effort taking steps to prevent this kind of abuse. After all, they are getting %20 of every transaction made on their market place, so for every scam video that Katie Harvey accepted, received a %20 cut. Is a scam in a way for not implementing ethical moderation?

Cute, innocent smile…Katie Harvey, Dublin UK, playing the role of Cindy Taylor – Profit with Cindy!


Someone should really expose how operates but since Katie Harvey has entered the world of binary options, it’s a responsibility to blacklist her, inform people of her true identity and of course, warn you about the websites she was hired to promote, such as the offers I mentioned previously. Profit with Cindy, Financial Echo Success Story and are all money-making schemes and you are bound to lose between $250 to $1000 if you decide to sign up with any of those fake offers. For a complete list of scams, visit my updated Binary Options Blacklist. If you know of any other fraud websites that Katie Harvey is involved with, I encourage you to post a comment and let the world know and of course, if you have any feedback related to Profit with Cindy, Financial Echo or the AutomatedBinarySignals auto traders, you are free to post it below.

Lastly, this is for Katie, look I know you want to sue me right now, especially after reading this review, good luck with that since as I mentioned, I am sure that not all the 10,000 orders you accepted are related to scam operations, however, the fact that you refuse to comment, respond or explain your actions indicates that you just don’t care and you are a low-life scam artist. I reached out to you many times but unfortunately you declined to respond therefore I decided to post this warning. I will also share this warning with other actors on Fiverr so they understand what might happen to them if they decide to cooperate with scams in the binary options field. This is a warning to everyone who decides to lie on camera, you will be exposed!

Good luck to Katie Harvey and hopefully she decides on a different path. I am sure that she can succeed on without accepting offers from fraud websites and doing all the dirty work for them, such as the main part, lying. I certainly hope that Katie will read this review and take it in the right away. “Are you mad? Relax… take some Xanax, you’ve been exposed…”. P.S. – I know that Katie Harvey is a popular name so I really want to apologize to all the ladies out there who share this name. I am sure that people will not wrongfully associate her with you.

The Fisher Method SCAM – Fishing for new VICTIMS!!!

Friday, June 12th, 2015

A new SCAM is out, folks! I hope none of my subscribers have signed up with It amazes me how those scammers manage to come up with new ideas to scam people every day. They must be doing nothing all day but devising fresh and innovative ideas to steal your money. This one smells really fishy!

The Fisher Method is actually a real method. But can it make you a millionaire or even make you at least $500 every day like the creators of this scam promise? Definitely not. The Fisher Method is a technique used by statisticians to test hypotheses in specific situations. I promise you there’s absolutely no connection between this technique and binary options, and that no skilled trader, such as Afzal, Snir and the other signal providers in my manual signals group on FaceBook, ever use such a method to achieve the trading success we’ve been enjoying since the opening of the group. It’s simply a gimmick that was created by the marketers of this scam to convince unsuspecting traders, newbies in particular, that this time they are on to something. Well, guys, unfortunately, is just another scam offer you should avoid.

I want to go over the characteristics that enable me to identify scams so that you, dear gals and guys, can do the same thing. Scams are released every day and there’s no way I can possibly warn against all of them in time, so I would like to teach you how to discern for yourself if a certain offer is a scam. First of all, a scam will always make promises that seem too good to be true, like a promise to make you a millionaire or even to make hundreds and thousands of dollars daily. Second, they will always have a pitch video which shows you forged account balances, trades, testimonials, etc. They will sometimes add different logos so that subconsciously you will feel that this is familiar and therefore trustworthy. In the case of the Fisher Method scam you will find logos of Sky News, MSNBC, CBC News, etc. Third, there will often be an actor that pretends to be the creator of the method. In our case, he calls himself “Jacob Clark,” and says he’s a professor of mathematics. A quick search reveals that the picture provided is used by few other websites, making it clear that “Jacob Clark” is a fake character. There are many other signs that tell me that this is a scam. I don’t even need to try this to know. The fact that the binary options WatchDog has blacklisted it is perhaps the most obvious sign, see:


Hopefully, these characteristics will be enough to help you decide if a certain offer is a scam. And if you are not quite sure about a specific service, you are always welcome to email me at Although there are a few legit binary options Auto Traders out there, my whole effort is to empower you by bringing the trading knowledge to you. Therefore, I suggest to all my subscribers to join my manual signals group on FaceBook. Our group is a community of learning first and foremost. Almost free of charge webinars by our most successful signal providers, study sessions, and one-on-one tutoring are only some of the features that make this group an ideal platform for newbies and advanced binary options traders alike. And I will never force you to sign up with a nasty, dishonest broker, such as those supported by the Fisher Method app and other scams, brokers that have virtually zero customer service once you have finished depositing funds. To join my group, you are encouraged to sign up with fully EU regulated and licensed brokers, such as TopOption and OptionTime.

Please write a comment below if you had any experience with the Fisher Method, whether it’s the statistical method or the binary option scam. Please don’t stand by and let those scammers “fish” your fellow traders. See you all on my FaceBook group!

Open Letter to my Favorite Binary Options Trader!

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

It’s Michael Freeman here and today I want to write an open letter to my favorite binary options trader, who’s also an admin at Mike’s Signals Group on FaceBook. 

Afzal Ahmed, there’s really no way I can express the way I feel about your contributions so I thought I’ll just write an open letter, an article and share my thoughts and feelings with the world! First, I never claimed to be the king of binary options, I love to help day traders and I guess people feel like I am a contribution to their success, especially when it comes to preventing them from signing up with binary options scams and in many cases, I go as far as helping my subscribers with credit card disputes which is very time-consuming, especially when you get over 200 emails every day, but what keeps me going is the fact that I love my job.

You got to love what you’re doing in order to see real success and this might explain why my YouTube channel, for 4 years now, is still the most viral channel in the binary options industry.

Enough about Michael Freeman now, even though I do love to brag about what I do, knowing that some of my competition are constantly reading and stalking my articles and videos…Trying to catch up with me, replicate old ideas I once had, while I am busy moving forward and maintaining my spot at the frontline of this industry, with good intentions and hard-work.

I am not the type of person to flatter people or in other terms, I am not an “ass kisser” but Afzal Ahmed is something else, he could be from a different planet and his ‘market value’ is unknown, for all we know he is a true star!! We even have other binary options groups trying to steal him away with lucrative offers, right after I posted a webinar in which he nailed 10 winning trades in a row, live on camera but unfortunately for them, he chose to maintain his loyalty to Mike’s Facebook Group.

Guess what? People are not purely motivated by money even though I certainly reward him for his great achievements, and in the last 4 years I honestly never witnessed a trader who can persistently manage to keep a binary options ITM results of over %85 without ever dropping below %80 on his weekly average!!! If I was running a failed binary options group I would surely try to steal you too so I totally understand them!! 😉

Now before I continue, I want to share Afzal’s latest Binary Options Webinar so you can see how he pulled 10 winning trades in a row live during his latest webinar. Unfortunately we didn’t capture many other amazing days, but we will, in which he managed to pull 15 winning trades in a row, EPIC moments indeed, but many great days are ahead of us and now that we host and record live webinars, the glorious moments will be recorded!!!

Afzal’s 2nd Webinar – I encourage you to watch it entirely.

New Traders….Please I beg you, don’t annoy me by asking me about the %100 Profit Bot or any of the scams that promise you a %90-%100 success rate with binary options, by sitting on your sofa, eating potatoes and glancing at your computer screen.. It doesn’t exist and you will never get it with a few clicks. NEVER! Get it out of your head and realize that it takes a little bit more effort, not so much, but you can’t be completely, %100 passive, come on?!

In reality, if you want to make money with binary options and you the following terms, “ITM, support and resistance, candles and PUT/CALL”, don’t ring a bell to you..DO NOT trade on your own by guessing if the price will go up or down and I know that some of you think it’s some kind of a game and do it for fun but if you are looking for fun, you’ll have a lot more fun playing at an online casino. If you lack technical analysis skills, a robot is not going to save you, instead you will need the support of a group with ongoing education and reliable signals you can follow and learn from and this is exactly what our Binary Options Group on Facebook is about!

Here is why our group is the best: It’s actually very simple and I will be glad to counter any arguments or claims that a better binary options group exists on Facebook or anywhere online. We are the only group that encourages talents to contribute to the group by posting ITM signals as I pay members bonuses ALL THE TIME, out of my own pocket on a weekly basis! I pay my admins, and I assigned Valentina Velkova to take care of the important job of keeping track of the performance results of each and every binary options trader who’s posting signals on our private wall. Critics might ask, well if people are competing for bonuses, how do you prevent members who lack trading skills from ruining the wall with bad signals? Well, it’s a really silly question because we do keep track of our top traders and admins performance results and it’s available for everyone to see, it’s updated weekly and some traders have been with us for months, enough to gather the necessary stats in order to evaluate how well they perform. If a member chooses to follow one of our traders who’s not doing so well and not listed on the TOP 7 best traders list, it’s their own fault if they end up losing, for safety, we remind our members constantly to follow our Top Traders.

We’re still the only group online that is able to pay A LOT OF MONEY to our Talented Traders and this is how we find talents like Afzal, Snir Yamin, Tec Trader. Chances are that if I was greedy and wouldn’t provide my traders with a bonus structure that provides them with an incentive to do better, they wouldn’t be around trading for my members.

We now also provide webinars and free lessons over the weekend, to help our new traders learn more about online trading so they can eventually learn the necessary skills to trade binary options on their own. We also don’t charge any recurring fees or money to join us, once you’re in, you never have to pay a dollar. Try to beat that…

All that I require from members who are in my group is to follow the rules and you are more than welcome to be part of our growing family, in fact we are now the fastest growing binary options community on Facebook. I encourage everyone to join us, be sure to also watch Afzal’s 10 winning trades in a row – live webinar, if only I could capture the days he managed to pull 15 ITM’s in a row but I will and we will start hosting webinars on a weekly basis now so you better stay tuned!

I’ll sum up this article by thanking Afzal Ahmed once again for being one of the best traders I ever met, and in my circle you’ll find 1000’s of Forex and Binary Options traders. You are only 24 years old, but you know what…age is meaningless when you’re dealing with true talents!! I just love this group and I want to thank all my admins for being such great sports, loyal, dedicated and hard-working. Let’s keep ITM’ing, god bless you all! This group is like family to me and I love you all!!!
