Kirt Christensen and Index ETF’s trading

By moneyman1, January 27, 2014

Does anyone have any feedback about a trading signal system by Kirt Christensen using ETF’s on indices like the DIA, SPY, QQQQ, etc. attempting to stay fully invested in the individual ETF’s which track the whole US economy??

I’m a professional full time options trader. I manage money for others and for myself. This guy has no real clue about the market risk for the strategy he talks about. He is selling a very basic way to trade options using the weekly options on the Russell 2000 Index. I trade the RUT index he talks about every day. Credit spreads are NOT the best way to trade that market. Anyone can sell credit spreads hoping that the time premium will decay and they will make money. IT IS THE MOST COMMON TRADE THAT AMATEURS MAKE. He has simply… Read more »

I saw his webinar and this guy is not teaching options methodology,he is is just teaching how to buy or sell ETFs through options or the ETF itself.it is not really an option methodology but a market timing strategy

Efrhen: You are partially right but I think everyone is missing the BIG PICTURE> Kirt’s subscriptions are NOT intended to teach anyone about ETFs or Options. His systems are automated alert signals . You can trade the alerts or not. . They are very simple and do not require much time or study. They may or may not make you any money. However, I have studied the ETF Tipping Point program and think it contains a lot of valuable info. For example you can get current lists of the components of an ETF showing the individual stocks that are performing… Read more »

I’m only one-month into this. His system does have some merit but the return is not as robust as claimed by looking at the records over last year or so. My main complain is that his site is not well maintained/updated and seems this is not his focus.

I tried his system for two weeks. I had some issues signing up, and had some issues with what I felt weren’t prompt responses with tech support. When I got access, I saw that the trades were mostly several weeks old. Shortly after I joined, I got an email saying that because the system wasn’t spitting out recommendations, I would get access to a bonus ETF trade. The system then provided several recommendations. I bought two of the recommendations and one bonus trade, and lost money on each of them. (The losses were between 1 and 2.5%.) I requested a… Read more »

I’ve been trading Kirt’s ETF Tipping Point now for over 4 months. On Feb. 27,2017 I put $12,500 on each of the 9 ETFs for a total of $112,500 using margin, so my money at risk was $56,250. A month or two went by and I was having to down size to $12,000 per position. And now my total account value has dropped from $61,000 to less than $47,000. Around $1,300 of that was paid toward interest on margin, but besides that, I’m down over $13,000 not counting the interest. I just keep hanging on because I know this system… Read more »

Christansen seems very slippery / He always ducks the question on if trading inverse ETF’s will show similiar results as his actually going short = there is a big difference/ He won’t show the results he says most people use with his system = trading 2X ETF’s / he has changed thw system 4 times and each time he goes to past years and changes the results as if they were always in effect / claims the average holding time on his positions is about 3o days and in reality it is much longer / says He avoids moving averages… Read more »
