Woodies CCI Club is so full of BULLSHIT it ain't funny.

For over two years, Ken Wood the owner of the WoodiesCCIClub, LLC as it is registered in the state of Arizona has been advertising on his website about how you can get a discount because of his fine work.....just use the link provided, just mention that you are from the and "PLEASE, make sure you mention Woodies cci club so Woodies make a wish account will be credited."
Just Traders helping Traders and helping the kids at Make-a-Wish all at the same time. So I send a few letters off to all the members of the Board of Director's at InterActive Data because I couldn't find any donations from eSignal to Make-a-Wish or any from InterActive Data. Could it be that eSignal was not doing what it said it would...I mean, this ad implies that eSignal is going to make a special donation or something to Make-a-Wish on behalf of the I never saw where eSignal was using this special marketing arrangement at their booths during any trade show.....they never make a big deal about giving money on behalf of networking deal. They were using Ken Wood at their demonstration during these events...just never a word about any donation from their part......and I said.....hummmmmm.

So the Assistant Gereral Counsel from InterActive Data a Mr. Micheal Passanisi wrote me a nice letter explaining that InterActive Data Corp has made donation to several charities including MAW, BUT......neither eSignal or InterActive Data was aware of the "snapshot" or ad on Woodies website suggesting that there was a special arrangement between them.

Seems that Woodies again has shown how to use smoke and mirrors to promote himself and make his followers believe he is actually doing this just to help traders. Wake up doesn't matter what you call it's all BULLSHIT from the word go back to 2003.....and check it all out, because if this is BULLSHIT, then how good could the CCI actually be for risking your own money with.

This isn't a game folks, it's your retirement, your life savings and all he wants to do is sell you all the snake oil he can before you loose it.......

What a piece of work this bastard is.......and using Make-a-Wish and the kids to hide behind everyday....

All salesmen stretch the truth to get you to part with your money. Using dieing kids to emotionally bind prospects to his group would be OK if there really were contributions going to Make-A-Wish. But this salesman is ethically bankrupt. The only contributions being made are tangential to Woodie efforts (like the ones you made). Sadly, that may be good enough to Make-A-Wish to give him a pass.

Wow, and all over the CCI ETF is this MAW background design on the charts. Wow! No one has checked this out before from Esignal?

I really wonder what other surprises you have for us Sport?

There is no more Santa Claus?

It surprises me that PFG didn't do any due diligence on Woodie before engaging him as a feeder. Their reputation may take a hit when it comes out that Woodie's charity angle is a fraud. Are they really that sloppy?

Dennis, I am very disappointed that you have the tenacity to criticize the CCI club and W for not making the advertised contributions to Make-a-Wish when you and others have only spent 3 years trying to find some contributions. I am sure he would have responded to you by now if he weren’t so busy selling CCI baseball hats and underwear, selling DVD’s, leasing chat rooms, conducting Trade-a-longs, steering people to PFG, returning funds for the defunct 100 Club, appearing on TV to promote Esignal and other endeavors.
You must know that in his heart he only has the best interests for the Make-a-Wish children after he pockets the profits.

That is what I was thinking also....dang

I did some checking with our local MAW here in Florida and then followed up on the national level and the monies raise by Woodie that was supposed to go to MAW never was accounted for. It looks like he kept the money. WOW! …

Now I see he has used the E-signal to do the similar con-game. When is someone going to turn this fraud Ken Wood over to the authorities? To use handicapped children no less. This con-man has no shame. I think I’m going to puke.

Looks like birds of a feather flock together. How do the people with their pictures plastered all the Woodies CCI tolerate this crap? I hope they get all the filthy blood money they want. No integrity whatsoever. They are low life scum for participating in this crap. Absolute scum of the earth is what they are.

Actually those moderators get nothing, zero, zilch and nada.

Maybe a free room and a meal or two if they particpate in teaching at the "trading workshops"...which is only fair if they spend money on travel and expenses to be there.

Moderating is a pretty thankless job if you ask me. You have to put up with a lot of bullshit. And eventually they all end up leaving or being thrown out never to be heard of again.

Handicapped children no less, Hard to believe they can show their face in public.

My posts are not being allowed on the Woodies CCI club forum so I’ll post here.

I have humbly asked Mr. Ken Wood aka Woodie to cooperate with the Arizona Attorney Generals office. They would be willing to act as a neutral third party to help bring closure to the alleged problems of misleading others. I had hoped Mr. Wood would bring closure to concerns raised by those who are asking for simple accountability. However I’m sad to say I have no response.

On a weekly basis Mr. Wood has promoted himself as having character and that all the other educators are shysters and crooks. He has proclaimed how he provides a free conference room while other educators charge money because they can’t trade, yet his room is free because he makes his living at trading. The inference here is that Mr. Wood is passing himself off as a professional guru who has character and can be trusted.

Mr. Wood has publicly stated he does not need to charge for his room and that he makes his living at trading futures. I realize many traders feel this is an outright lie.
There are traders who feel Ken Wood’s unorthodox way of trading is a simple gimmick to lure new trades into PFG’s marketing plan.

The problems come when if in fact Mr. Wood himself can not make his method work and the enticement is simple fraud and is not really a legitimate method. Many traders feel this misleading is not ethical behavior and Mr. Wood is abusing a position of trust. The damage is real and many are looking to seek resolution.

Many of us have visited web sites like Doug Tucker’s at
Mr. Tucker has done an eloquent job of revealing the problems associated with Woodies CCI and Ken Wood. Mr. Tucker is not alone as there is a long list of those who have left and they are not short on bad thing to say about Ken Wood aka Woodie, whether it be his method or the abuse of the position of trust.

If Mr. Wood would just step forward and clear these matters it would bring closure and remove the mistrust. This brings us to a very interesting situation as Mr. Wood’s silence on the matters at hand is raising tons of suspicions. By simply providing one year of trading statements along with his tax returns, this whole saga would be over in any instant. If he is actually the man he says he is he could shut everyone’s mouth in an instant.

If he is telling the truth, why does he allow the CCI club to be dragged through the mud?
His behavior is very selfish as it undermines the thousands of hours of work done by traders to build the CCI club. This is so disheartening especially when the resolution is so simple, simple if he has nothing to hide.

If he really cared about all the money he raise on behalf of MAW why does he allow the cloud of doubt to remain which hinder the efforts of many who felt this was a legit organization? His silence hurts the very children he purported to care about? This is unbelievably insensitive.

Why is this so hard for him and why take such a strong resistance to accountability if you are telling the truth? When did the truth become so unpopular? Ken Wood if you are the man you say you are, you could silence your critics instantly. Mr. Wood your actions are suspect you are giving creditability to those who feel you are untrustworthy.

You need to step to the plate and be the man you have led us to believe you are or pull the plug on the whole thing and shut it down. Richard_AZ
