Trading Programmes

Trading Programs - Myth or Reality?

Also known as Bank Debenture Trading Programs or High Yield Investment Programs

Trading programs that are fraud

  • These investment programs involve the purchase and resale at a profit of AA rated Medium Term Notes (MTN's),instruments issued by banks and are available from any important brokerage firm. However, these MTN's are not available to 99.9% of the people who are promoting these trading programs and are not available at the deep discounts represented to create the high yields promised in these programs.
  • Be suspicious of deals that quote "100% a month", "1% a day", "10% a week."
  • These investments are misrepresented to be highly secret and confidential, and consequently the investor must sign a "Non Circumvention Non Disclosure Agreement" keeping everything done confidential and secret.
  • Be aware that 99.9% of the deals really have no trader or a trader that is affiliated with an acceptable bank and that people call themselves traders who are either brokers or fraudsters or both.
  • The Federal Reserve System of the United States ("Federal Reserve" or "Fed"), International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and United Nations are not involved in HYIP's in any manner.
  • Fraudulent Representation of "huge profits", "no risk", and "commitment holders."

      The trading programs stated above are entirely bogus and do NOT exist. In principle, always presume "fraud" until you learn otherwise.

      Trading programs that work

      These "trading program" sometimes appear similar in some respects to the non-existent "high yield investment programs", but they are very different.

      • Pay High Returns. These investments pay a high return, but not as high as "100% a month", "1% a day", "10% a week."
      • Generally, do Not Involve AA Rated Medium Term Notes, but usually other bank instruments or lesser rated MTN's. This does not mean there may be situations where AA rated MTN's may be involved.
      • No "One Year" Contracts With 40 Weeks of Trading. These transactions are determined by the availability of instruments to trade. The most difficult element to make these transactions work is the ability of the trading entity to obtain the instruments to trade, and as the supply is limited, the number of people who can obtained them is even more limited.
      • Minimum Investment. The minimum investment is some situation may be as low as $20 million, but more commonly the minimum is $100 million.
      • Excellent Banks Involved. The banks are in Europe and the investor is always required to travel to the bank to conduct due diligence on the transaction and open an account in his name. No one has ever seen a transaction outside of Europe.
      • No Nonsense Documents. No letter of intent or confidentiality agreements are required in most situations. However, the investor always has to provide a confirmation of availability of funds before he is introduced to the bank where the transaction takes place.
      • No Secrecy Involved. There is no secrecy involved. There are no international monetary agencies involved. These are simply private transactions between an investor, a trading entity, and a highly respected bank.
