We tried to sabotage TIDETRADERS. It was wrong I'm sorry.
It is my desire to be direct and genuine so that others can benefit from this testimonial without hype and to apologize for participating in a terrible plot to hurt tidetraders. Several months ago I visited this site because some trader s we joking about Rick (tidetraders on air host and chat room moderator). At that time we were all very supportive of “another site” of which I will not mention. A few of us were encouraged by two main people to “post something to piss him off” and to “run him down in Investimonials”. I’m ashamed that I stooped with these people and did irritate Rick in the LiveStream. This was wrong I’m sorry. I can’t speak for the others but I can come clean and try to give a genuinely helpful review here for others to consider. Please note these people are still conspiring to “get rid of Rick”. Today I saw a post from someone in Investimonials and I can’t prove it but I’m almost certain several of these posts are simply from a group of terribly dishonest evil people. Some seem real but it’s like they we not paying attention.

There are several things about the tidetraders site that made me really think carefully about continuing to “help” the other service with the people that had bad intentions. These items made me realize that it is RICK and tidetraders that deserve the pat on the back and the other site that need to be closed up.

Rick’s work ethic was the first sign of many great signs this was a good site. Man this guy is crazy. He works all the time. I visited with him on a SUNDAY and he helped me for nearly an hour in private. There were no extra charges or anything for the private session and after an hour I think he’d have kept going but I stopped him as I felt so guilty for taking his Sunday time. This is of course when I got a conscience.

Rick’s Hart is in it- Second for weeks I watched as his emotions tell a story about his trading. I could almost feel his tensions when he lost money. Most all the services out there rave about the gains but Rick is very careful to give fair time to his bad trades. Rick is NOT nurturing in the mornings. I don’t know if it’s sleep a personal thing or just the pressure of being on air and trading his money. But I must say he’s nicer to people than I would be. So, is he human? Yes. Is this bad? No! Rick is by NO means an emotional trader but it’s actually refreshing to see that he gets upset just like the rest of us. Trading is not for people that are emotionally weak in the first place so if you can’t deal with Ricks cold sharp attitude before coffee you don’t need to criticize him you need to see a shrink and consider a career other than trading for a living. Let’s not blame Rick.

Trades accuracy - BAR NONE TOP NOTCH - TideTraders isn’t the Holy Grail but it’s a very good service just the same. I have been at several services in the past five years. And yes I was looking for the Holy Grail system or Holy Grail person to do it for me, which by the way I can’t find. And that’s when in a grand shift of thinking Rick helped me to see and accept the responsibility is MINE not someone else’s. That being said he does an above board job of communicating his trades. I saw the trades set ups at least a couple weeks before each trade. Then he goes to some trouble to post the trade order so we can see it before its filled. This is the ONLY service I know that does this. There are plenty of other services that tell you what they are going to do but the alert for the order being filled was always after the fact. With Rick I took many of the trades alongside him and the accuracy in gains and losses matched his on the site nearly to the penny! The exceptions I made MORE as I got a slightly better entry in a few cases. No offense to tidetraders but there is no real way to verify if ANY service is on the up and up accept through my own trading. There is more reason to believe Rick and tidetraders ARE on the up and up than not. Frankly it was very easy to see the entry, exit and stops on both stock trades and e-mini trades. No question in my mind they are the real deal. And every time I wondered about a trade he’d address it in a helpful manner. I read the Investimonials post by Stockhouse50 and don’t want to start a war or anything but I think he’s wrong about shares being posted. I don’t think it would matter if rick told me he was trading 1 or 1000 shares. We all have to pick the number right for us. I notice that rick is very consistent in share size it’s virtually always 100 or 200 shares and he virtually always takes either 2 or 4 e-mini contracts. So frankly him telling me share size was 200 every time would help a bit. His education on calculating this for myself makes much more sense. I think when people want share size they just want ammo to compare him to other services. Color, creed nor share size mean anything… bottom line is how many shares can I trade.

High Education Quality – At first it’s kind of hard to keep up with rick’s charts they are busy in some cases.Seems to be the case no matter who’s chart’s I look at I always understand my best. In fact Don Antonio and Ginzu posted some charts and (no offense the them I had no idea what they were posting…lol) it was just I didn’t understand someone else’s stuff. But, as I understand (from our private session Rick gave me a free sneak peak in the premium room broadcast) his premium broadcast charts have virtually no clutter at all. Hence, I would recommend he cut back on the lines and indicators in the Standard Broadcast charts. But I understand where he’s coming from since his job after all is to teach multiple discipline concepts & indicators and to add and remove all of them all the time would be ridiculous. So, if you can get over the “cluttered” look you’ll really appreciate the more important aspect which is depth and quality of understanding the technical set ups.

Just to set the record straight… Rick has NEVER attacked me. And as far as I can tell he admits when he’s wrong but just doesn’t take crap from hateful people. He is a great teacher and genuinely cares about is subscribers to the point it’s a fault.

Rick… I’m sorry & ashamed I participated in trying to hurt you or tidetraders. Frankly you are doing a great job. And while you like everyone has your own faults your service is worth every cent and tidetraders really should be the “Home” you call it for most traders.

The truth about this service
I must admit Rick does work harder than most other services out there. But he is NOT very transparent at all! He wants you to believe he is but he leaves most confused. First of all, his watchlist offers entries and stop losses but most of that changes day to day as the market fluctuates. So basically you are on your own in trading these stocks and I will explain why. Now he does have the trade box but Rick is NOT transparent as he does not tell you share sizes or even % of size majority of the time. This makes his results very easy to manipulate. For example, say he trades two stocks ABC and XYZ and both are at $50. If ABC drops, he claims to stop out and says "oh I only lost $50" because he reports it as only trading 50 shares.

However, stock XYZ climbs and he exits it for a profit. Miraculously he made $300 because he had 300 shares of this stock. I have seen this time and time again on him somehow having more shares on his winners and small shares on his losers.

I and many other traders have asked him to post share sizes or at least if he's taking a full size, 1/2, 1/4 etc. His response was NO i can't because the SEC won't allow him. So why is there so many services that show trade sizes or % of capital per trade?? And if that was the case then why does he sometimes post his share size?

He uses 3 pt stops on his ES trades most of the time, however I see his trades dip below the 3 pt stop and you never know if he actually going to stop out. Sometimes he waits long after the 3 pt hits before he says "I stopped out of that one". Because of course if the /es reverses he is still in it. However if the market drops further of course he stopped out at 3 pts. This is what confuses many who follow his service.

I have never seen any real proof of this trades or statements so in my mind and in any other realistic traders minds they should avoid following his trades from the trade box.

I do think Rickster teaches a good methodology but I have a hard time believing he is actually a trader. If he was honest he would be much more transparent. If you question his trades he will attack you and try to ban you immediately as he did with LL. LL had the guts to bring up an issue that were on most of our minds, and we see why more do NOT question Rick now.

My comments about Tidetraders
I have been a member since July 2013, so I cannot attest one way or other to Tim2smith’s claim that Rick lost 20+ points on 3 separate E Mini trades; however, I doubt very much from my experience that this actually occurred, or, if there were indeed some 20 point losses, they were not on individual trades.

I would refute any claim that Rick does not post his trades correctly. I have followed his trades closely, and have found no instances where he neglected to post a losing trade, and no instances where he could not have achieved his entry price. In fact, if one wishes to mirror his trades, unlike other services, Rick’s entries are posted BEFORE his own orders are filled.

I must point some facts of which I am certain:

1] Rick is an excellent trader, and an excellent teacher. Both.

2] No one else puts more time, effort and dedication on behalf of his “students”.

3] Rick’s integrity is beyond reproach.

The best bang for your buck...
Sorry, it's a long one...

jammer is the name I use in the TideTraders livestream. Most likely you have seen my posts over the last two years, and I've been a member for 1.5 years. My profile in investimonials shows my pic and my location, unlike most here.

Rick is actually trading with us while on the air for the entire trading day. To answer on reviewer's comments - his trade targets are put in the member's chat room and the fills are posted. Rick wears his heart on his sleeve and he gets emotional on the winners and losers just like most traders. I have never seen him lose 20 points on the E-mini S&P Futures. I have seen him make 20 points and it was amazing. Unfortunately I didn't stick it out with him but got 10. points, which made my day!

I take full responsibility for my trades like professionals do. I look at the set-ups with Rick then make my decision. The final decision to click the mouse is mine and mine alone. The education at TideTraders is second-to-none and the entertainment ain't bad either.

Finally, most the time you will see the red "LIVE" icon on the TideTraders livestream. Rick is on air at least 80 hours a week, providing research, trading, and educating members and (non-members, on livestream). All this at no additional cost. No sales pitch for a new seminar or for some great indicator of the week. What other site can do that? Not any I know. How many traders can honestly say they spend amount of time. I can tell you, I don't. Not yet anyway.

Lying dishonest site that fake trades to make the numbers up
I have been with Tidetraders for around 3 years, and over that time i have found out Rick the owner, lies about his trades and lies full stop, he does not like posting the losers and i know of at least 3 time Rick has hit a whopping 20 point loss on the ES, but if you the paying customer ask why he has not posted his losses, well he hits the roof ( fuck you was the language i got ) and his little clan mostly family and friends will on you, i know of 3 people that have all lost money trading with Tidetraders one lost over $45,000. also there have been many time Rick post fake trades !! how do i know this !! because the price he has entered would have not been met . My advice is stay away from this site Rick is a big head jerk that will blow his horns and whistles on a winner and suck his thumb on the losers

Tide Traders, A Step Above Its Closest Competition
I have been listening to Tide Traders for several years now. As my trading, psychology and knowledge has increased, it has helped me be more critical towards other traders. I think from the perspective of a beginner, I think its a good place to start! However, as I have said NUMEROUS times already, its best to develop, establish and IMPLEMENT your own trading strategy! DO NOT trade on another traders ideas!!! Best to peruse information available to you, from NUMEROUS sources, and come up with your own trading plan, system and rules! And be aware that over 90% of successful trading is psychology. Once you learn that, and risk management, your on to better days.

With the negative aspect (don't we all have negative things to say as humans?) Rick is a decent trader (even better than myself,) but Im getting to the point that it drives me crazy to look at his charts. Rick has Elliott wave, trend lines, sup/res., pivots, previous highs of days... GOD, you cant even see price action and volume! And that is all that matters in trading-again Ill say it- PRICE ACTION AND VOLUME! When you have so much shit on your charts you cant even see those, you may want to go back to square one- simplicity!!!!! If you cant trade on those two attributes alone, go back to your day job!

Another issue that I have with Rick is during slow days of trading. We all have those moments. Best to learn something new, play an informative video! Rick it appears like to play voice recordings of Family Guy and pathetic adult cartoons... I had no idea rick was only 17 yo!! At least from that aspect, can we all just grow up and be professional? I think another thing that really turns people off are individuals with a condescending, arrogant laugh. Rick, you sound pompous, please stop it! This site can also be used as food porn, considering Rick loves to eat in front of the camera!



If your still unsure, go over what I have stated! It may save you hours! Markets never forget, but people do.... time to make YOUR OWN TRADES and don't rely on another!

Best market education available.
I have been a member of TT since 2010 and I have been trading fulltime, since 2009. I just want to share my feelings about TideTraders and hopefully help someone new to trading.

Rick, I just want to thank you for all the incredible effort you put forth in helping your members and those that participate for free in the LiveStream, here at TideTraders, each and every day. You go way beyond what anyone should expect, at any price, especially at the price we pay. You have saved my butt from crash and burn scenarios many times and I suspect you have done the same for others. You have also pulled others out of their charred wreckage and set them upright once again. The hours you contribute, are a real testament to a truly devoted professional. I would think there are days, you must want to just flip everyone off, focus on trading and double your income. But, you persevere through the technical issues and sometimes rude individuals who will criticize anything without good reason. Yet, you come out teaching and sharing more information, which betters all TideTraders. As a student of your private training, your free quarterly refreshers share far more information then I have found on any site, prior to joining TideTraders. I know at anytime, you are available to answer any question or expound upon any trade practice you have shared. I feel very fortunate to have found TideTraders and as long as I am able to trade, I will be a loyal member. All the Best.

For those new to trading and who want to start off on the right foot, or if you are struggling as a trader, consider becoming a member of TideTraders. In my opinion, it is the best value that you will ever find and one that will enhance your trading for the rest of your life. At TideTraders, you not only get to eat fish, but you learn how to fish for yourself. Rick along with Danny and Ash, who are the other commentators and are exceptional traders, will bend over backwards to assist any member in an effort to improve a their trading skills.

As for those that criticize TideTraders, here at Investimonials. It is just their own need to be critical of someone who they themselves recognize is providing a service that goes far beyond the norm and beyond what they can reasonably comprehend.

Informative site that comes from knowledge of the markets
I have been listening to Tide Traders in the live stream for about 3 years. Not only is Rick very knowledgable but shares this knowledge and education unselfishly with all that listens to his broadcasts. The hours and energy that he puts into the markets should not only be appreciated but praised by his listeners. Thank you Rick for all the time and guidence that you give all of us each and every day.

If your new to trading this site is a must
When I first stood on the beach and fished next to Rick this grate fishermen with his nets full, I struggled to land anything as I watch the shark circling and taking my catch , I ask could I have a fish from your net as I’m hungry, Rick replied yes but would you like to eat tonight ! or would you not prefer I teach you how to fish with the sharks and you will never go hungry again !!! For that I’m eternally grateful

( His education is priceless ) i if your willing to learn !!! but he who learns but does not think, is lost! he who thinks but does not learn is in great danger.

Happy Trading lennie

Be careful
Tidetraders is ok... Like others have said, it is good for gaining the basic knowledge needed to begin your career as a trader. During my days as a TideTrader, I have talked to a handful of members that have left the service due to the main hosts (Rickster) immaturity and suspicion that he was saying that he was in a position for longer than he really was to make his business look good. Do I blame him for doing this? Not really. Would I follow his trades? Probably not.

As far as the short term momentum room goes, I would be really careful. The first host of the short term momentum room, Michael Saul, left awhile back because he said he needed to take on a salary position to support himself and his family. That says something doesn't it? The new short term momentum room host, Danny Dobres, filed for bankruptcy at the end of 2008 into 2009 (just google it) and claims to have been a self employed day trader since 2007. That says something doesn't it? It doesn't mean Michael and Danny aren't experienced or can't read the market, but it says something about their ability to actually trade it with their own money.

All in all, I would be careful using the services that TideTraders offers.
