These articles provide a solid understanding of what my investing method is and how I trade.…read more

Why There Is No Real-Time Trading
- The members section is not designed for real-time trading. Real-time trading is an impossibility because trading itself is very fluid and time sensitive. Trying to duplicate my trades is not recommended as nothing posted on my site is in real-time. Also, I will often sell puts only to find out in the next day or two that the premium is better than what I received. This same thing can happen with other trades as well. I may close too early or too late. There is no perfect method of investing and my trades are not perfect and, even if they were, I cannot get the information to you fast enough for you to be able to duplicate the trades..….read more

Why We Only Use PayPal As Our Merchant Provider
- PayPal is our payment processor. In most instances you do not need to open a PayPal account if you prefer not to. You can simply check out with just your credit card. They will require an email address to email you a transaction receipt of your payment. In rare cases such as some customers outside of North America, you may have to open an account with PayPal to have your credit card validated. PayPal will advise you if that is the case.
- We use PayPal as our payment processor as they are the largest processor in the world accepting most forms of payment including Bitcoin and Ethereum. You are even able to use alternative services such as Google Pay or Apply Pay with PayPal. This is something many processors do not accept.
- PayPal provides the highest level of protection including 24/7 monitoring with full encryptions of transactions and absolutely no sharing of financial information between vendors and customers.
- We do not accept credit cards or checks personally as that provides you with limited security. With PayPal every transaction is secure, private and protected.
My Credit Card Company Charged Me An International Transaction Fee
- All transactions are in US dollars. Today many credit card companies are trying to boost profits with random fees. If your credit card company charges you an international transaction fee you should contact them to reverse such a charge. As well you can also check with your credit card company to be sure they will not charge a fee for international transactions. If they do, change to a different credit card company. Another way around such fees, not for just FullyInformed but any place you shop is to open an account with the provider, in our case PayPal and attach a credit card to the account or deposit the amount of cash needed for your purchase. This is also the case for many merchant providers such as Square, Clearly and others. That way, the merchant is handling the full transaction and not your bank or credit card company.
