Newsmax - Sean Hyman-Money Matrix Insider Loser!

Sean Hyman- Money Matrix Insider brags about his credentials and inside track on making money in the currency market.

You can lose a fortune while investing with him even though he tells you weekly through videos and e-mails how and why you should buy/sell currencies with his recommendations. He goes on and on about his brilliant decisions as to why he does what but it is all to no avail because 9 out of 10 times he is wrong and then blames it on conditions beyond his control.

He charges $1500.00 a year for his "professional advice" and you could make more money by throwing darts at a dart-board while blindfolded.

Stay away from him and his website,

I have had a good run with Sean Hyman. Ordered it last year and I think it was just over $100 not $1500. Since January I have made $14000 on his picks. I look at each carefully before I lay money out and there were a few I was opposed to personally so I did not buy them. The others seem to be doing well and I watch for sell emails but I also watch myself diligently and sell or buy based on what I have learned. He is great at explaining the charts.
I think it was helpful for a beginner but if you already know what you are doing you probably can just do your own thing.

I am a subscriber to his Ultimate Wealth Report service for over a year now. The cost was $50 for a year of weekly and monthly updates, plus access to several e-books. Of the 17 bought and sold positions so far, the returns typically have been in the mid 2O's with none lower than 12% and one as high as 51%. Before you go slagging someone, get your facts straight. His updates have provided me with a wonderful education on stocks. Your loss.

No losses? Find that hard to believe. Sean has to play by the rules. He strayed, lied and now the government have shut him down. Now he has no income and he is selling his car. House will be next - foreclosure looming. Crime doesn't pay.

@ original poster I don't believe you review. In fact you sound like a disgruntled liberal, who is just all pi.ssed off because you guys are going to lose in the next election due to you guys sucking so bad.

I've followed his advice and have done well. Most people don't understand this is investing NOT trading. Takes time!!!!

People, ask yourself this one question: If the system worked so well, why would this guy be spending his time, effort and money trying to sell educational resources? :upset
Wouldn't he be using his own system making tons of money?

Just one question; how is Sean rated by Hulbert's Financial Digest? I want 3rd party verification. Hulbert rates 188 investment newsletters to objectively find out how you would have done following their advice. You rarely see a newsletter say that they are rated by HFD or bragg that Hulbert rated their advice in the top 10% of all newletters. Unless you're Warren Buffet, show me 3rd party verification or get lost!

I agree with the posts below. I've been trading with Sean for about 4 months now, wish it was 4 years. It cost me $100 for the year. Well worth the investment. I tried trading on my own doing my own research and failed miserably. it was very painful watching my brokerage account bleed money over time. I sold all my losing positions and followed Sean to the T. Happy to say I am WAY up! In his weekly broadcasts he seems to genuinely want to help people. He is definitely not a "get rich over night" advisor. I recommend him to any investor willing to have patience. You won't be disappointed.

The original poster sounds like a disgruntled liberal. This whole review sounds like bullsh*t to me. I am a well educated person, and this is the BEST program ever!

I subscribe to UWR and AP and each subscription is <$100/year ($200 total). Sean does a very good job explaining his stock recommendations and never claims to time the peak or bottom of a stock one can do that...anyone that claims to do that consistently is simply lying about it. His recommendations are in companies big enough that provide a level of safety in the investment, which also means the price can't be driven up (I.e. "pump and dump" of penny stocks) by his subscriber base of 130k, when millions of shares are being traded in each stock each day. While many of his positions are negative at any time, he always claims to expect to be invested 3-24 months or so. In my opinion, this is where dollar cost averaging and patience really pays off for the disciplined investor, not looking to get rich quick. I've been investing at Sean's recommendations for just over 6 months and many of his positions have really come on strong in the pass couple of months, with a couple of positions up over 30-40% in the pass 45 days. (While I'd name those positions here, it doesn't seem fair to Sean or others that have paid for the service, to do so.) I appreciate Sean's insights and continue to trade stocks in my personal account and even my (five) kids' custodian accounts, plus mine and my wife's Roth IRAs. Most people don't have the patience and discipline to successfully invest (especially in stocks), as emotion/fear get the best of them. The love of money is reflected not... Show more

I wish I had started trading with Sean 15 years ago. Being a contrarian, we think alike and he does all the research and all I have to do is execute his recommendations and have patience.

I've been following his advice and I've done well on his recommendations. Just my personal input is all.

I see my conservative comment was removed from the comments section, so much for freedom of speech! Thanks to the liberals soon, you won't be able to say anything, because those faggots are always butthurt!

The words of wisdom from the Bible are not exclusive to that collection of books, epistles, and revelations. Many religions hold Hyman's references to be of value and insight. Quoting the Bible and applying a few random stories and passages out of context to 21st century mammon is irrelevant. The real question is has Hyman discovered some new way of investing in the stock market that is revolutionary and part of some "hidden code"? The answer is a resounding "NO!” He quotes Buffet and Templeton on the same plane as the Bible. Their comments are subject to the same scrutiny.
Contrarian investing has worked and failed just about as much as any other system of buying and selling stocks. You can't "time the market" and win all the time, but you will sometimes. Research is critical (point-Hyman). Investing in what you know is also critical (point - Buffet). Since most of us are not day-traders and/or don't have the time to really get to know a company, we should stay with what we know and what we have had time to adequately research. Or, turn our money over to an advisor that has been thoroughly investigated and gotten consistently positive recommendations and let him/her do it all for you.
In general, avoid the latest new way of doing things, avoid the association of ancient texts with anything having to do with securities, and especially avoid anything that suggests that there is a mystical "code" that when appplied will cause one to achieve uncommon

Has anyone here!! actually used his "Prime Season Calender", I'd like to know the results. Also, I've seen one guy here mention what he does for a living, I'm a Mason Contractor. I've collected my wealth thru hard work! I also know that in my trade when someone comes along with an idea that creates profit for them and takes from others, that person isn't liked much! So here is a guy that comes up with a system that says you don't need the "middleman" you can do it yourself!! I can see where he would get flak!! Just like I don't really care for Menards selling how to Masonry books. :sigh

Sean IS the middleman!!! He does the research and we reap the benefits. As to the Ultimate Wealth Report Suggestions, Up to this date (4/27/14), all trades were profitable. Sounds too good to be true? Check it out. Then talk about it. I am sure that in the future some trades will not pan out, but, if you can profit from 8 out of 10 you will do GREAT.

I signed up to the UWR a few weeks ago. I didn't buy into the biblical code stuff but as the fundamentals behind it seems to make sense (research etc etc) I signed up. As a newbie to the investment world who is trying to invest for retirement I felt his advice would be good.
I've traded via a virtual portfolio for the moment and will do so for several months before trusting him - at the moment the value of my stock has increased by 1%, most of the time it has been running at a loss. My other stock picks (with zero experience on my part) have performed better although his game is supposedly longer term.
Then yesterday I received a mail from him - offering me access to a "Secret Investment Calendar" with guaranteed returns blah blah blah... all for the bargain price of $xxx. At this point, I lost all respect for him - surely if anything shows that this guy is all about "get rich schemes" and making money from subscriptions rather than good investments, then this must be it.
I won't be renewing my subscription.

I am probably beating a dead horse here but thought some more insight to Mr. Hayman's "advert" needs to be unravelled.
First off, English is my second language so please be gentle when crucifying me about my poor grammar or language construction.
Mr. Hayman "talks the talks" when it comes to the stock market. He knows the correct words to use and name drops the perfect investors and their quotes.
However, getting back to his lifelong video, he keeps repeating the same "sales pitch" over, and over. How he went from pastor - to investor - to philanthropist. How he managed to increase his father's savings from $40k to $396k, etc.
If you are so good at what you do, so overwhelmingly guided by your faith and faithfully (not to mention correctly) interpret the "Hidden Financial Code" in the Bible, why the need for repeating the sales pitch, over and over again.
I spent 4 (four) years in International Venture Capital and the first thing I've learned was never to trust an Attorney, Auditor or anyone with the Bible under their arm (that includes pastors and priests, etc.) The first two candidates are too smart for their own well being and the one with the Bible under the arm tries to play you on your emotions and faith. To be fair, not all fits the profile, I just never got to meet any of them. I was considering to subscribe until I saw this after clicking that big ole button at the bottom of the video. Now remember Mr. Hayman clearly states that his publisher wants to
