5 Percent Per Week This service sell credit spreads on weekly options. It is run by the same people who run the 10percentpermonth. Unfortunately most people don’t realize how dangerous and unprofessional those guys are. On 10percentpermonth, they had few 70-90% losses. In November 2008 they placed 100% of the portfolio in OTM debit RUT spread. They have no clue about risk management. 5percentperweek is even more dangerous. Selling weekly condors 3-4 days to expiration and getting 5-6% every week gives you false sense of safety. When the market makes a move, you have no time to adjust and 70-90%… Read more »

These guys told me in an email they were sorry for losing 75.16% of your hard earned money in the last week of November,2010. Now we have implemented a new system where we will use stop losses from now on. Can you imagine these guys did not use stop losses!. I canceled the service and I noticed the last week in Dec 2010 they lost another 9.6%. Stay clear of these clowns.

The above poster mentions that they posted a 9.6% loss. I was with the service at the time. That number is deceiving. That loss consists of two trades. The first was a loss of 24%. The second was a 5% gain. They combined these two. I was also with them for the 75% loss during the last week in November. They had also assured me, before I subscribed, that they had made changes to prevent large losses such I the one I saw in their sister company, 10 Percent per Month, the previous May. Ouch!

Here’s my thing, I subscribed right before their first sizeable loss and weathered their second large loss almost six months later. Sure, i was sour after those losses and while I wankt happy about the losses, I understand what happened for each occurence. I am very glad that I listened to their advice and not invest 100% in any of their trades for the simple fact that trading options is risky enough, and to be able to make it through some rough patches and not compound my problems, I try to make sure that I have enough capital to make… Read more »

I was doing well for 6 months, until I lost all my money. The system is flawed. risk all the money you put in to gain 5%. There is no money management, they didnt do what they said.

You have better gots in vegas, risk 100% to gain 100%

These clowns are absolute amateurs. They don’t have a clue how to manage a trade that goes against them. Their strategy is simplistic – wait for a decent move in the market and either sell a bear call spread with an upward move or a bull put spread with a downward move. That is the extent of their research for each trade. When they GUESS wrong, they get absolutely clobbered while they sit like a deer in the headlights wiping out the all previous gains and then some. Stay away from these fools.

I joined the service to give it a try for a few months. I am a member of two other services and these guys have much better returns for the same risk. They don’t have contracts so you can cancel at any time. Good service for the money, in my opinion.

Get off the fence people! These guys got us another 5.26% this week. I have been a member for over a year trading some “gambling” money I had stashed. Now I will opening an account next week and bringing over my retirement to autotrade what these guys recommend. I am taking control of my future and not waiting around for social security or handouts from the 1%-ers. Go 5PPW!

The service is on a really good run right now and I don’t see them losing steam anytime soon. I like their trade management philosophy as it has translated over to some nice returns for my account. I would, and have, recommend this service to everyone looking for some great income generating opportunities.

I am very happy with the service. The. ir win streak is impressive and they are very helpful but I am staying cautious just because I have lost a lot of money with other services. So far I have made over 30% return on my investment capital in just over 3 months. I take profits off the table after
5percentperweek.com has my loyalty so long as they keep showing me the money!

I am surprised to see the great reviews and hope everyone does well. I took a serious look after reading your reviews and almost bit. The 2010 and 2011 performance shows a complete wipe out in each of those years,Look for yourselves. If they have done something that eliminates those huge loss’s I would love to hear about it. If not beware!

I think that it goes without saying that you always have to be wary of all of these services, but let’s be fair…that advice is applicable NO MATTER WHAT TYPE OF INVESTMENT YOU ARE LOOKING TO GET INTO. I also took a long look at their performance page to make sure I was making the right choice. I communicated with other services at the same time asking them about their losses. In explaining their services, the other newsletters seemed to come across as, “Eh, deal with it”. 5PercentPerWeek, however, provided thoughtful insight into their biggest losses. I communicated with them… Read more »

The 5Percent traders once again proved their commitment to preserving my trading capital and I, for one, was a very happy camper to see that, to say the least. Our XEO Put spread that we sold for $.25 on Tuesday was painfully at risk that at one point we were only $2.00 out of the money with 3 hours still left to trade. Our spread price was only a nickel so we were nowhere near our exit trigger point to suggest that we close down our position. What they saw was the potential for a late day sell-off that could… Read more »

i wish I had more money to shove into my account so I could make even more money. They tell me NOT to invest everything i have into the trades but I cannot help it. I need to make as much as I can. So far, i’ve made over $10,000.00 trading their recommendations!

I’ll make this short and sweet, 5PercentPerWeek is one of the best services out there! Their on a 16 trade win streak. At 5% each week, after commissions, that’s about a 50% simple return in 4 months! Their in a league of their own!

Another winning week for 5Percent! My autotrade broker, Thinkorswim, was able to fill their order for $0.35 so I actually earned 7.5% on last week’s trade. I’m up over 40%, including commissions, for the past 10 weeks! Thanks, 5PPW!!!!!

I was a little disappointed when I lost over half of my portfolio in one week. 5PPW sustained a 59% loss. The only problem is that they make it very clear in their website that the can manage losses well and have experience at doing so, so I gave them a try. The first week I made 5%. The second week Trade King did not fill my auto trade order at all and the 3rd week into it I lost $25,000. I was devistated. If you look closely at their performance, they do great for a while, then they lose… Read more »

I too am writing this review after having suffered a devastating 60% loss using this service. For $240 a month, you would imagine they’d have better controls for downside potential. After all, lots of loss mitigation strategies exist for vertical spreads (such as reducing short leg as delta crosses 18-20). This service trades vertical options spreads. Either a bear call or a bull put spread order is issued typically once a week. However, some weeks no trade is issued at all. On the plus side, they do publish their performance numbers on the website candidly. I have been with the… Read more »

I was there for the loss and I got three different notifications of an exit trade having been submittd to close down the position so I know that they tried to get out sooner. I turned off autotrading to see if I could exit manually a couple of times by myself and couldn’t catch it either. I turned it back on and let 5PPW handle it for me. Here’s my thing: The market DID spike 2% in one day driving the price of our spread skyhigh before prices stabilized enough to execute a trade. The only weeks that I remember… Read more »

I agree with Kennedi on this. The market was crazy last week and it moved VERY fast. I was looking at the spread prices as 5PPW sent out the trade alerts and they were jumping in 10 cent increments. By the time the order was received and submitted by the brokers, the price was above the limit price in the order. 5PPW continued to increase the price during the day but the market was moving too fast to get the orders filled. Finally, when the markets settled down, 5PPW’s order was filled and the trade was closed down. The markets… Read more »

Would like to respond to ckendal4938 and Kennedi. For one, I do not trade my entire portfolio. Regardless, it makes no difference. If you look at this service’s historical returns…you would *NOT* be making a profit when you factor in costs of the service and commissions…even if you have a great discount broker. Also, while they did try to execute trades to help stem the loss, the fact is that they moved too slowly, too indecisively, and in manner that *HURT* their customers greatly. For the price of the service, you should have had an aggressive exit move at points… Read more »

Look, Kendall and Kennedi, you can thorw all the numbers and excuses why what 5PPW sustained a 60% loss. That doesn’t help my portfolio on bit. I just started with 5PPW on autotrade because I know nothing about options trading so I thought I would let the experts take care of it. They advertise that know how to minimize losses before the fire gets too hot and they know how to how to get out before too much money is lost. I was emailing back and forth with 5PPW asking alot of questions and I finally decided to try it.… Read more »

Pretty amazing that people still defend them after 60% loss. 2% buffer is a lot of movement in one week? With weekly options, any significant gap will kill the trade, and there is NOTHING you can do about it. The comment on their website that “Losses are cut soon, and managed properly” is a complete nonsense. For weekly options, there is no such thing. If the trade goes against you, the negative gamma just kills you. Btw, did you notice a nice trick they do on their performance page? Usually the trades start with the most recent trade and go… Read more »

At Henry. Just wait until you lose 60-90% of all your money and profits in one week. It will happen if you stay with them long enough. I was with them for 3 weeks and lost $25,000. And I didn’t have all of my money invested. The issue is 5PPW adverstises that they can manage losses and get out before the fire gets too hot. Well, what happened when subscribers lost 60% of their money about a month ago. Mark my words, eventually you will cancel after you sustain a major loss. Good luck though. I suggest you take a… Read more »

This week is the second time in just three months that they have had a large loss, this losing trade was entered Tuesday afternoon and exited on Wednesday morning for a 16% loss. For September 2012 through November 14, 2012 their performance percentage is at -27.58% with 7 wins and 2 losses. On Thursday November 15 they entered a trade to help mitigate losses from the previous position. This position was successful for a gain of 6.38% bringing their September 2012 to November 16, 2012 percentage to -21.20%. Their average for 2012 as of November 16 close is at 52.42%… Read more »

I have been with 5percentperweek for six months now. The first thing I noticed is, they do not report accurate returns. They will publish a trade that will not get filled and report that as a winning trade. I use think or swim, so I know if they cant fill it them most others cant. They do not give reports on why they are selling a put or a call. You never know what they are thinking. I really believe they do not have a fundemential reason on why they trade they way they do. You will take huge losses… Read more »

I looked at the 5PercentPerMonth published performance record. It’s all there. They do mostly credit spreads with some iron condors. They have a lot of small gains but the big losses more than wipe out all the small gains. I’ve decided not even to try them with simulated trades using TOS.
