Truly there is nothing worse than having your time wasted when reading a particular review/non biased view on a trading platform. What I am referring to here, are the so called “Review” websites out there.
Unfortunately my dear readers the truth is, almost every single trading review website out there to date, has been a ruse, a falsehood, a bloody out right lie and I will never be able to list them all as they amount to thousands of sites. For those that know and those that don’t there are two types of these time wasting muppets out there;
- Affiliate run sites
- Platform run sites
So, first to deal with the affiliate run sites. These guys are paid, yes actually PAID to send through traffic to a particular platform or network of platforms. They are generally paid either by a commission amount per person that signs up for an account, or more usually paid via a revenue sharing system. Yes, you got it, they get paid off the back of your losses! As far as I am concerned, if the site is truthful, and they are running an above board business, with true and helpful information contained within then great, good luck to them and well done. Unfortunately every single site, yes every single one that I have ever seen with a “review” on whatever platform they are promoting is just total utter trash. The majority of the information they post is not only biased towards the platform, but more often than not it is complete false and misguided information that they provide.
Now to deal with the platform run sites. This really really makes me a very angry Englishman indeed. Unfortunately there are no online laws that stand in the way of any given platform creating an online alias and providing biased/misguided information in regards to their particular platform. These sites always filter all the comments in the forums they have or just simply monopolize the information they provide, to essentially push the traffic through to them no matter what. Again, a big fat bloody waste of time and in my eyes it is like someone taking a piss on my bed. It is out of order and just so wrong!
So who are the fakers?
I have as you may have guessed spent far too much time on Google and searching around out there in recent years. There are a few simple ways to spot a “false” site, or at least a site that is blatantly biased to a particular platform, hence either affiliate or platform run.
- On the rating/review side, a particular platform or a small group of the platforms they have reviewed have almost perfect ratings. Whether it is 90/100 or 9/10 or even 10/10….whatever the rating, should you just look a little closer you will see I promise how blatantly obvious the lies become. Most of the time the other platforms they review will have a mediocre/average result. The platform/platforms they are promoting for all the wrong reasons are normally the ones actually running and creating the site, or at least paying the affiliate running the site to be overly biased and one sided.
- Lack of content and updates is another way to suss out these fakers. If the site does not get updated regularly with content and has outdated information dating back to previous years I promise you, no wait, I BET you $100 that site is a fake one, run most likely by a particular platform rather than an affiliate. you see, an affiliate gets paid to stay active and push regular info and updates. A platform generally hires a tech geek to create a range of online presence, in the form of review sites or blogs, unfortunately the market is quite fickle to these tech geeks, and more often than not they soon get fired or moved on to other duties. Leaving the online “presence” neglected and outdated.

It just goes on and on and on. Please readers if you find another real site like mine out there, please get in touch. i will never be able to name and shame them all unfortunately so i need your help and real reviews on the places you have gone to or go to trusting that they will help provide you with information that is actually useful, relevant and truthful about the brokers. I personally believe I am the only one out there who has truly traded at the binary options brokers I recommend, not to mention actually withdrawn and taken money back from them verifying that they are a good place to hold funds with….
I will be adding more. The sites above do have the marks of affiliate/platform running about them. From further digging I am about 99% certain of my convictions in terms of who runs the sites. Not to say you shouldn’t trade at these places, but let’s just put it this way. Any waste of my time, in terms of trying to get the real truth about any given subject, ESPECIALLY trading, seriously pisses me off. The sites above truly in my eyes as a personal opinion, are just a simple complete waste of time.
Just so we are all clear on something here. The sites above…..Are the worst, rubbish filled pages I have ever laid my eyes upon!!! I know my site doesn’t win any style marks, I know I use word press just like all the others to upload the content…I know…… I know……..
But, seriously, the sites above….. If the owners/creators/operators of them are reading this, in the words of a great crazy trader friend of mine Mr Mucky, go suck my toe!
You have wasted thousands of peoples time with irrelevant and useless regurgitated information, essentially leading to thousands of people losing money! Scumbags! Take these pathetic sites down!
For those not wishing to believe this pariah on this issue, I have sourced a website, able to distinguish the lawful owner and producer of any website address. Simply click the link (the language is not in English but navigation is easy!), click find at the bottom and then low and behold! The true owner and provider of the website is listed at the bottom of the page. Thank me later!
