Good Day Everyone! I really hope that you are surviving well all of the latest payment processors saga and connected to it HYIP closures. If this is not the case for you, I am truly sorry, but now you know where all those warnings about risks investing with HYIPs come from, first hand. HYIP world is by far NOT for everyone, but I am sure the rest of us, not knocked down completely, will make it through Ok eventually. We are the survivors and everything that is happening in this industry, with all of its ups and downs, is a natural part of its development and THAT, is what makes it very interesting to follow.
Today, I wanted to start from the general HYIP topic and in particular talk about positive HYIP trends this summer season. I have to tell you that unlike many of us, HYIPs clearly did not seem to have taken any vacations. You may have seen elsewhere mentioning of the summer season being announced not too “hot” during this time, but I am inviting you to be the judge for yourself and have a look at some statistical facts. Statistics typically do not lie and in my opinion the ones I am presenting below are suggesting that the real situation of the HYIP market is quite the opposite of what some resources are saying so far. If you recall one of my earlier posts at the beginning of this summer, I was then talking about the number of newly launched HYIPs being indicative of the industry development. I now did the same analysis, which you can see on the updated chart below (newer values are in dark blue):
Basically, the point I was making earlier was that since early 2010, there was a clear “step-like” trend in the number of newly launched HYIPs, with the “up-step” falling exactly onto summer months. Thus, the number of HYIP start-ups was spiking up during the first month of each summer to the substantially higher levels and it was actually staying there till the next summer, for the cycle to repeat. The question I asked at the very beginning of this (2012) summer season, was if such step-like trend will continue and I predicted that it will.
As you can see on the chart above, the cycle is so far repeating, where in comparison to the prior year and in exactly the same pattern as one for the year before, both June and July produced significantly more HYIPs (see dark blue bars on the chart). On the first look, it may seem like (while only marginally) August had fallen out of the trend. However, let me remind you that we have witnessed the over a week long “near death experience” of Liberty Reserve, which obviously was not a good time for new start-ups. Moreover, as far as I know, the month of September is very well on its track into the entire pattern and if nothing major happens second half of the month, we are going to see the corresponding number in its 300+ range.
Everyone is of course more than welcome to make their own conclusions out of this chart and you are free to question and perhaps even disagree with my interpretations, but in my opinion, when there are more programs starting up during any fixed period of time, our overall chances of having more well performing HYIPs are higher.
There are some news I will need to get off hands today, which are not so good and which are not typical for my HYIP portfolio. Before doing this however, I would like to report that overall and over the long term, my portfolio is profitable and that it is in relatively good shape. I am also stressing it again that such state of HYIP investments would not have been, and cannot be possible without constant “turnaround” of carefully selected programs on the list. Some programs open, some close and for every “bad surprise” there is usually a good one, like EurexTrade for instance, which at this point keeps covering for other losses for over a year.
My most recent additions are – StallionGold, offering 1.5% to 4% daily on deposits with principal returned over 100 business days via “4-stages principal return” function, unique to this program; PipsFund, promising invariable 2% daily in earnings over the 120 calendar days, with principal returned at the end and The Klides, offering several plans, all having variable percentage with the minimum of 0.7% daily for 150 business days and an option to withdraw principal early for 33% contract termination fee. Check these programs out and see if they are something you may consider adding to your own portfolio as well. I am also reminding everyone that I am not here to personally gain on referral commissions and that I will gladly return them back to you for the sake of preserving the integrity of HYIPBlogger.com community of members and website readers (please see relevant information on this HERE).
Out of the most recent closures, the West Finance Group and KBS Investment are the programs, which most likely have fallen victims of recent LibertyReserve downtime. In my opinion, the least expected failure was KBS Investment, which I really thought will deliver over a lot longer period of time. Absolutiva however was the whole different story, with the very rough start and one of the most disastrous finishes this industry have ever seen. I promised the administrator of Absolutiva to publish program review, but being practically shocked while seeing what was happening from day one, I simply could not make myself doing it.
I can’t imagine how it was possible that right on the day this program was online and right at the moment this administrator showed up on public forums, a lot of people knew his full name. At the same time, he was also identified as someone repeatedly starting and failing in running many HYIPs. I first thought that it was some sort of an educated guess on the side of overly suspicious public, but at the end it all turned out to be true. Why? Apparently due to the complete lack of basic security, be it administrator’s personal identity, or that of his website. Eventually, someone simply “hacked” into various personal online accounts of the administrator and later revealed all of his not too pleasant on intentions “guts”.
Another very important HYIP lesson of fallen Absolutiva, which is simply a MUST to take a note of for everybody, is to never EVER come even close to HYIPs offering PayPal as their deposit option, even if you are not planning to use one. Absolutiva’s PayPal account was obviously locked very shortly after the first few deposits. This is simply what PayPal does, after they learn about the HYIP using their system, which is against their rules. Some people, for some reason feel that the use of PayPal by investment programs may serve as some sort of guarantee, but it is NOT the case and probably never will be for a hole bunch of reasons. PayPal does indeed checks their merchants, but this is not their condition of opening the account and beginning the acceptance of payments. So, the moment very first inquiry from “investor” comes in to PayPal, IS almost invariably the moment such account gets blocked.
The last topic I wanted to share my opinion on today, is about the “scaring the hell out of me” personally program called AVO INC (http://avo.net). I am sure most of you have seen this one blasting in banners all over almost every available HYIP resource out there. The so very apparent overkill in advertisements for a relatively new HYIP, is not in fact the reason of my concerns, but it is rather their website’s content and all of their claims. Most importantly and EXACTLY just like for the case with US based PayPal I just talked about above, the first call from one curious investor to any of the listed on AVO.net official US government agencies, will NO DOUBT raise a huge red flag with them in a flash. For this reason, I am pretty sure that this program, like no other by far, is living on the “hour to hour” basis.
This is it for today, I will see you soon.
