The Stock Whisperer maintains the following social media profiles:
A review of Archive.org reveals that The Stock Whisperer website came online sometime in 2013. It appears that before 2013, Stephanie Kammerman was not a trader, but instead an aspiring singer and appeared on several reality TV shows including American Idol and America’s Got Talent.
Stephanie Kammerman is certainly a musical talent. Several very catchy YouTube videos can are found at the following links:
The Secret Sauce
During the past few years of writing reviews about trading educators, systems and indicators I have certainly seen and heard a few wild and outrageous stories. The most successful trading educational promoters usually identify a clear defined niche, genre, or some unique idea that only they possess. Some claim to harness superpowers like those of Jesus. Others pretend to know the secrets of Fibonacci. Some even use astrology. Others use overly complicated catchy sounding hard to understand mathematics, and yet others proclaim Darth Vader powers using the “Force” as a Jedi Yoda master. Funny how the power to feel and understand the bid/ask order flow only belongs to a select few.
Stephanie Kammerman’s niche is surprisingly satisfying using sexuality, the (supposed) ability to “Follow The Big Traders,” and the apparent ability to read the unknown mysteries of the universe “Dark Pools” of trading volume. Let’s face it, sexuality sells and the allure of a soft singing voice, Jedi powers and knowing some “Dark Pool” trading secret combines into a delicious sandwich of showmanship, excitement, and exotic story to hook these naive traders. Like shooting fish in a barrel.
Stripper Pole Economics
Yep, I said it, and it’s funny to think about Stephanie Kammerman as a regular at the Traders Expo seminar circuit. For those of you that are unaware, the Traders Expo is very similar to a ‘swap meet’ where trading vendors rent a space for a typical fee of $4000 to $6000 per vendor and hawk their wares as attendees meander through an exhibition hall. For additional fee’s, the Traders Expo also offers the opportunity to present materials to an audience via “Keynote Speaker” format. Essentially, people are herded like cattle into a room to hear something special and unique.
Traders Expo would have you believe that these speaking engagements are only reserved for the best trading educators in the field. These educators are nothing to write home about, and far from the truth that they are any good. Anyone can rent these prime speaking slots, and offered to whoever is willing to pay the highest fee. During the most recent Las Vegas Traders Expo, I had an annoying time and tradingschools.pro attended Stephanie’s presentation.
What did we see? I can best describe the performance as ‘stripper pole economics.’ It is important to understand that Stephanie is very comfortable performing in front of an audience. And the audience that attended her presentation can only be described as mostly white, middle-aged males. Like the natural entertainer that she is, Stephanie did a great job at being cute, and teasing the old white guys with just a bit of “sexy talk.” My bald head was sweating just watching her work the floor. For instance, she proclaims that one of her best trading setups is when price touches her “T” spot. Give me a break. Of course, the guys sitting in the audience were more than likely wondering about her “G” spot, and not about trading setups about her “T” spot. I have to give her credit; she does an excellent job of injecting sexuality into the sales presentation. Another term she liked to use, “I am a day trader by day, and a swing trader by night.” Funny stuff.
The truth of the matter is that the audience was made up of a bunch of older white guys, with plenty of gray hair, a few extra pounds. It was nice to have Stephanie pay a little attention to these losers, myself included following the act. For just a fleeting moment, Stephanie gave us a bit of cute, sexy talk and the sort of eyelash batting traders usually don’t’ get sitting in front of the computer. She is entertaining and funny. I enjoyed the clever flirty wordplay. However, I have seen dozens of these technical analysis presentations, and it was pretty obvious to me that Stephanie is certainly no Buffet or Soros. An economist she is not. And certainly not a professional investor.
Track Record of Trades
Stephanie Kammerman posts an outrageously hot record of trading results. She claims that she is accurate at 93.6%. In fact, tradingschools.pro compiled the previous 12 months of supposed trading results from her website and recorded the following:
- 526 total trades
- 506 winners
- 20 losers
- 4.15% average return per trade
- 2,181% annualized return on investment
Many readers are already probably having a good laugh. In fact, this track record ranks in the top 5 of BS track records that tradingschools.pro has recorded. Why am I calling this track record BS? For starters, we reached out to Stephanie and asked for a brokerage statement or some proof of these super-amazing investment returns. As you can imagine, no reply. It appears that the track record is some willy-nilly list of trades that she feels is somehow believable to her target market.
Of course, some folks are incredibly gullible and will believe just about anything. And so, to put this into proper context, if a person were to invest $1,000 and compound the returns, then after only a single year of taking Stephanie’s magical trades…then you would have trading profits $250,245,972.
Someone call Donald Trump as her track record puts her in the running for the economic transition team the US needs. The country is currently approaching $20 trillion in debt. If Donald Trump gave her only $500.00 to invest, she could pay off the entire national debt in only 24 months. I’m kidding of course, and it’s all a scam.
What the heck, I nominate Stephanie Kammerman for Secretary of the Treasury! Look out Yellen; you may are about to be replaced. In all seriousness, the track record is pretty laughable. Anyone that believes such a thing needs to think about seeing a shrink, and taking medication. For those interested, I have included the following trades listed in spreadsheet form of her supposed stock trades; it is only the prior few months. I left out the previous performance as it’s a waste of digital space, but I am sure you get the point.
What’s the story with Stephanie; Stock Trading Wizard?
Usually, whenever a trading guru presents these sorts of truly incredible investment returns and provides zero proof, this is motivation for me to be nasty with my review. But with Stephanie, her record of unbelievable trades goes beyond the realm outrageousness and into the realm of juvenile comedy. There is almost a childish and immature tone to her sales pitch. Am I going to be upset that an innocent child is promising to build a flying elephant rocketship and join the galactic circus? Nope. Just going to smirk and encourage the child to follow their dreams and sign up with the galactic circus clowns. Same goes with Stephanie; her entire sales pitch has the feel of childlike simplicity combined with teenage sexual tension.
What the heck, Stephanie still has a few years before the luster of youth vanishes once and for all. She might as well use every tool in her magic toolbox, while the tools still exist.
Wrapping things up
If you listen to a crook like me, what does that make you? I think The Stock Whisperer has the look and feel of a “Life Reinvention” project. I wonder if Stephanie awoke one morning, battered and bruised from the rejection of American Idol and said to her middle-aged self, “what in the heck am I going to do now?” Gotta get that rent paid someway! And after carousing through the internet, browsing between jobs opportunities of envelope stuffing and selling makeup at the local mall, she stumbled onto a Timothy Sykes or Ross Cameron promotional video. A light bulb went off. She thought to herself, “If those jackasses can pull this off, then why not me?”
You know what? She is right. The lady is a pretty good marketer. The heck with actual trading results. Just fake it till you make it.
