For anyone who may be considering an investment in the trading programs of Oliver Velez, I would like to share my personal experiences and my wholehearted endorsement for the outstanding education, training and support I have received, not only from Oliver Velez, but from Dr. Dan Mielcarski, Michael Masem, Jay Frey and all the dedicated members of his very capable support team. Oliver often tells his traders that "Trading is just a process of keeping promises to yourself". What I have experienced personally is that Oliver Velez not only keeps the promises he makes to himself, but also those he makes to his traders. And he has delivered on those promises in spades. For those seeking financial independence, no one I know is more capable and committed to helping you succeed. Oliver will never give up on you. He will train you and fund you through the learning process and beyond, no matter how long it takes. I have never met anyone else who offered to do that for me. I should also mention that the profits realized from implementing the Velez trading methods have been astounding. I have personally participated in trades Oliver recommended that have produced gains ranging from 74% to over 200%. Furthermore, Oliver realized returns of this magnitude on virtually every instrument he traded during the last 12 months, with only a few very small losses. (This can be verified by going to the Oliver Velez Facebook Page where his recommendations were documented in real time.) Never before have I seen anyone produce such high returns so consistently, not even the famous names on Wall Street. And I have had the good fortune of working with some of the best. My fascination with finance and investments led to several different positions in the industry, first as a retail stock broker for Merrill Lynch in San Francisco and then as an institutional broker for 21st Securities in New York City. This arbitrage firm was headed by one of Wall Street's top option experts, Robert Gordon. To gain more knowledge, I eventually moved from the sales end of the business to the reasearch side and began a career as a stock analyst with Value Line, the largest independent investment advisory firm on Wall Street. Before long, I was hired by billionaire money manager, Kenneth L. Fisher, to help him write a book, "The Wall Street Waltz", now in its second printing. After completing the book I was made a managing director of Ken's private investment firm, Fisher Investments, where I conducted original research and made investment recommendations to the investment policy committee. Today, Ken Fisher (son of the legendary investor Philip Fisher, to whom Warren Buffet attributes much of his investment success), has $35-$40 billion under management, making him one of the largest and most successful money managers in the world. I mention all of this only to make the point that I've been around the block a few times. I have seen first hand many different approaches to the markets, as well as many of the scams. Long story short, in my opinion, Oliver Velez and his trading programs stand among the best of the best. No one I have ever been associated with has demonstrated greater competence, integrity, clarity of purpose and inspirational vision than Oliver Velez. Needless to say, I am very proud and honored to be a member of his equity trading team and the Trade for Wealth program.

Guys, I know I will keep coming back here to give my testimonies. Every trading day is a miracle and I am learning new stuff everyday. Above all I am building and developing consistency and trading capital. I wish I knew about ifundtraders before I blew up 2 trading accounts. God bless you Oliver, Dan, Mike and the rest of the team; you guys are simply the best. My trip to see you that was over 10,000 miles was worth it a million times over. I am looking ahead to a great and brighter future!

The ifundtraders program helpedd me realize how much it takes to make it as a trader. I honestly don't think i would ever be successful without this program.

Joining IFundtraders in 2008 was the best trading decision I've ever made. The continuing education is far and away the best I've ever seen. Oliver and Dan are the best traders I've ever had the opportunity to learn from and are truly Masters of the Markets! I continue to grow in knowledge and poise in the market daily.

I'm so lucky that I got training with ifundtraders early on in my trading career. I not only learned everything I use today to make money, but I continue to improve and learn more nearly every day in the on going chat/support room.

Dear Dan and Mike - I feel like both of you are my close, personal trading friends, joining me in my office every morning helping me learn how to trade equities. In the one short year I have been under your tutelage, I have turned my trading around 180 degrees, from losing every week to being profitable. Your trading styles are great contrasts to each other, providing a rich environment to work in; finding set-ups, identifying chart patterns, money mangement, risk management, great stories about trading styles, what works and what doesn't. I have always found that surrounding yourself with winners rubs off and produces more winners. I look forward to trading with both of you as my office mates long into the future with ifundtraders. Happy trading, Steve

I want to thank Oliver for helping me to become a profitable trader. Ifundtraders has eliminated the financial downside for me as a new trader. In fact, I've closed all of my other personal trading accounts, so I trade IFT's proprietary accounts exclusively. I've taken classes from other companies but IFT was the only company that allows you to pay one fee to learn and trade - for as long as it takes. What a great deal, in fact, I have not seen another offer that comes close to IFT. I'm both an Equities and Forex IFT proprietary Trader.

I only wish that I were a better trader than I am, but I would not be able to pursue this dream at all with out this program. The learning process, for me, means failing enough to ware out the bad habits while refining the effective methods of understanding the idiosyncrasies of price movement. That means that I blew out 2 accounts prior to coming here. Ifundtraders puts a true limit to my downside and I will never blow an account again and I have the perpetual opportunity to learn at my own pace. As for Oliver Velez, I have followed his work since 1999. He has always stood up for his traders. When times were difficult for him, he had his ‘Jesse Livermore’ moment and made things right with his own money. The commitments he made in the beginning to me and other traders are sill in place today and for that he has my lasting loyalty.

Ifundraders has provided me with the opportunity to learn how to day trade without losing my life savings. The cost of the program is more than made up for in the instruction alone. The two-day and five-day seminars gave me the technical knowledge to trade. The online trading room helps to refine and expand the lessons taught in the seminars.as with most day traders, my issues are psychological. Mike, and Dan have many helpful hints at resolving your own personal demons. I would recommend this program to anyone who seriously wants to make a living by trading the markets. I have also had some experience with the Trade for Wealth program and have made nice profits in my IRA accounts. If you're thinking about it, DO IT.

I have been an equities prop trader with Ifundtraders since July, 2008. While there have been some changes in structure and function of the company in those 3 years, the changes have been positive and all geared toward education and practical application of trading experience with the aim toward long term success. I am at the upper end of Level 3 in the prop program and without a doubt in my mind, this program gives you the ability to learn, practice, and apply over time the skills to become a successful intra-day trader. Anyone who thinks you can become a successful day trader without having the baseline of experience, which happens over time, is just living in a fantasy world. This program allows you to put in your dues in a controlled environment. Oliver, Dan, and Mike all provide the necessary mentoring to keep you going in the right direction. Will there be setbacks or demotions, you bet....all part of the learning process. Every trader will develop at their own pace and time. As a professional airline pilot, instructor pilot, and FAA Examiner on the Boeing 747-400, Boeing 747-8, Boeing 757/767, I have over 20,000 hours of experience flying, instructing, and checking pilots. Dr Dan, the head moderator in the IFT Chat room, is by far one of the best traders and educators you will ever come across in any trading room. He is the real deal, and there will be no doubt about that when you spend some time listening to him. I highly recommend this program for any trader willing to put in the long term work necessary to become a successful trader.
