Bill Poulos, trading veteran of more than thirty-five years, and programmer son Greg, have been training and helping traders in the stocks, forex, commodities, futures and options markets achieve consistent results, with their Profits Run series of courses, products and services.

October 2010 saw Forex Profits Multiplier, a complete program of forex training and trading system. In March 2011 a new course and alert program was introduced for trading Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), The Portfolio Prophet.

Retire-Asia endorses Profits Run products mainly because of the profits achievable from them. We are just one of their many satisfied traders, students and customers who are happy to confirm this. See some of their testimonials below.

Profits Run Inc is a father-and-son team with an honest, 'No B.S.' approach to financial market trading. Bill Poulos and Greg Poulos pride themselves on offering both comprehensive and useful educational materials to help serious individuals trade stocks, futures and forex.

Bill Poulos has been trading the markets himself for over thirty-five years, and son Greg has been at the forefront of Internet technologies for the past ten of these. It's a unique combination of talents that keeps overheads low to produce professional, high quality educational materials at affordable investment levels. Profits Run has been online since 2001, offering courses, systems and methods for stock, swing trading, futures, options, commodities and forex trading. Their trading students and customers receive unparalleled support including FREE lifetime e-mail support. They never leave them 'high and dry' as so many publishers and organisations do.

Who will benefit most from Profits Run products?

No "get rich quick" trading scheme exists; all the products require serious-minded application and investment of time into learning and applying a trading method. If this doesn't appeal to you, then these products are probably not suitable for you. But there's no real alternative; without the above, you're unlikely to achieve success with any new venture. If you're sick and tired of all the nonsense and 'fluff' and ridiculous promises of overnight riches, you'll be pleasantly surprised with what Profits Run offers serious traders.

October 2010 saw the release of all-new training and trading for the forex market, Forex Profit Multiplier which also includes trading alert signals software. You can see a video here.

In March 2011 Bill introduced The Portfolio Prophet, a training course and program for a private investor to make money trading ETFs (Exchange-Traded Funds). It also has trading alert software which generates buy sell and stop adjustment triggers.

Watch short videos which describe how this ground-breaking program works:

Stock Trading Nitty Gritty and Forex Nitty Gritty were introduced in 2009 to give newcomers to market trading the basic knowledge they need before opening brokerage accounts and making trades. At under $40 they are affordable and useful tools for aspiring traders who DON'T want to lose their trading accounts quickly (as a high percentage will do) due to lack of money and risk management skills.

"I would just like to thank Bill and Greg for this wonderful Instant Profits course. At first glance though I have to admit I was skeptical having previously paid in excess of $6,000 for other trading courses and seminars that were slowly burning out my account. But no more! Thanks to Instant Profits! Your simple yet extremely powerful system allows me now to look at the markets through a microscope, gauge momentum and reversal points to name but a few things it does with great accuracy and the bottom line to consistently make profits. Another reason why your methods works so efficiently I think is, that your never buy/sell at tops/bottoms. The market chooses direction... You wait for a setup to occur... Then pull the trigger! No more second guessing! This course has given me the confidence to trade successfully full-time because of how robust it is to changing market conditions. I am currently trading it exclusively on Forex and I know to expect losses as a fact, but as of writing this, I'm currently in my 7th profitable trade in a row. Now that's consistency! The reality is these trades are smaller in size and with Profit Factor taken into account, the ask is not too great for the market to reach these profit levels because the trading bands stay in sync with price action. I would also like to add the no-fluff bonus material was excellent. Your years of experience really shine through in your material and I for one really appreciate the effort put into all aspects of this course and by sharing it with others. I would gladly pay five times it's current value and I highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about trading."

Ivan M

"I was in the investment business managing pension funds for 29 years and I have seen and tested many programs. I must say that yours makes the most sense, and is easy to apply. I really like it, and must thank you for letting others use the fruits of your hard labors. Great material - life changing, indeed."


"The results of your method are not as you claimed. They are much better. In a computer simulation of nearly 2000 NYSE & NASDAQ stocks, using daily historical data from Jan 2000 to Nov 2004, I had over 200% of linear (un-compounded) capital gain per year. The compounded gain is too unbelievable to mention!

It also works intraday. I have been actively trading for more than 10 years, and your method produces the smoothest upward-moving equity curve I have ever seen. You really should not be giving your method away for this low price (or publicly disclosing it, for that matter). I am glad I bought it before you realize you no longer want to reveal it."

Kean F.

"I followed the Instant Profits setup conditions on the $SPX and placed an order to buy on Friday. I got filled on Monday. I then placed another order to sell the option, got filled on Wednesday, and made $3,000. Merry Christmas! Thanks for sharing your knowledge with others."

Keith T

"Your CD tutorial and your website resources are absolutely magnificent. I am very impressed by your entire process and genuine sincerity to make sure I get it. Thank you for your wonderful program."

Richard E

"I finished reading Instant Profits today. Just let me tell you that I could hardly sleep last night (the light bulbs inside my head kept flashing). I have been looking in vain for a good trading method for the past year (and read all the right books) and for the first time I am sure I can make your method work for me on a consistent basis. Thank you so much for sharing your invaluable experience and knowledge."

A. B.

"I would like to take this occasion to congratulate you on the excellent quality of your manual and CD-ROM. Instant Profits is really a step-by-step, detailed method. Your blueprints are tremendously useful and keep emotions out of the process. The examples are excellent and the whole package is easy to learn with very little effort (I'm a beginner with 1 year of trading). Great job, and thanks again."

Stephane T.

"I honestly think your whole package is the very best. Anyone can use your method for two reasons. One, it works; and two, you give the absolutely best explanations I have seen and the video support is fantastic."

Mike L

"Thank you for making your technique publically available. It's a tremendous service to the trading community to provide your techniques for sale at an affordable price. In my opinion, doing so requires a generous and trusting spirit."

Rod A

"I want to thank you for your course and I'm happy to say that it has more than paid for itself on my first day of trading. It has given me some set patterns and rules to follow now that I did not have before. Thank you for this great teaching, and I'm finally excited about trading again."

Dana A

"I am finding your study course excellent, and I am very impressed with your commitment and ongoing support. I am delighted to be able to confirm that you are a breath of fresh air in not only the learning of stock market methods and how to apply them, but in life generally. To find the likes of you in this day and age is very rare, and I am privileged to sit at your feet in the full knowledge of your honesty and integrity. You are to be complimented for your foresight and vision. Thank you for your selfless commitment to share your business savvy and to demonstrate your personal integrity. You are a credit to humanity in more ways than one. You may use this letter of thanks in whatever way you choose. You may also give my e-mail address to anyone who would like confirmation that you conduct yourself in a professional, honest, and trustworthy endeavor with integrity."
