Bottarelli Research Options I was a subscriber for four months – a 3 month trial and a re-subscribe for 3 more months.I got out after a total of 4 months with a pro-rated refund and about $6,000 of losses on about 20 trades of the more than 150 he proposed during that time frame. Bottarelli is day trading options for the most part and this is not disclosed up front. He tries to make money based on quick price movement of stocks. For example, “XYZ has moved down to resistance. The stock is strong, so buy the XYZ ABC Call… Read more »

I accepted a free three-month trial subscription in March. I purchased three of their recommendations. I lost 72%,90% and 92% on the recommendations. Monday of the week the subscription was to expire on FRIDAY, I unclecked auto-new on their web site. On The next day their email read to email “support@bottarelliresearch.com” with “Cancel Free Trial” in the subject line which I sent. On Thursday their email to me was that I had been charge $700 on auto-renew. My credit card was charge on that Thursday. I have sent FOUR emails to support@bottarelliresearch.com about their error and have received NO response.… Read more »

Used this service for over a year and was never able to duplicate the returns he reported achieving. Tried all sorts of order methods and trade notice means to minimize as much lag as possible. At the time he was limiting his gains to around the 20% range, but he let his losses run to a point where one loss wipped out 5 profitable trades.Didn’t make sense to me but even with my expression of concerns to him via e-mail this trading pattern continued.

Bottarelli research does not display the losses correctly. Recently they had a DIA put and it was a 100% loss yet never showed it on their history page. In 1 month had a 10k loss this is a very poor service lock n loose

Tried this and other Bottarelli services, which all failed to produce. May be an interesting read, but due to consistently losing trades, the overall rating and value are not worth it.

I gotta agree with the other reviewers. I subscribed for three months since I am retired and can follow the quick in and out recommendations. The prices were never as good as recommended and losses are ignored. I lost an average of about 30% in five or six trades over two weeks and decided it’s like hitting your finger with a hammer; sure feels good to stop.

Just for grins, I decided to see what Bottarelli was suggesting today. The suggestion was to buy FOSL March 16 100 puts @ 3.60. I thought, what-the-heck give it another shot. Bought 2 @ 3.70. So far I’ve lost $100 and FOSL is up $1.22. Looks like FOSL is going to do just the opposite of what Bottarelli thinks. I’ll give it one more day, but my advice RE this letter is do just the opposite of whatever recommendations are made.

New report: I got “stopped” out of FOSL (thank goodness) at the recommended stop price. Lost $170 per contract in one day. If you want to make money with this (I hesitate to call it a) service, do the opposite of what is recommended

I subscribed to both Botarelli Options and their Professional services. I lost money on both. More importantly, there was one recommendation that fell until it hit the stop loss they recommended, a couple of days later at 9:32 am, they send email saying it was time to “sell this stock now.” The stock the started up and 15 minutes later they changed recommendation to hold onto the stock. Eventually they said to sell. They posted the results as a profit in their history of trades in spite of the fact that, according to their recommendations, one should have sold the… Read more »

Unbelievably bad picks . Do yourself a favor and stay away. Lesson learned. Wish I would have found Stock Gumshoe before I wasted my money with Bottarrelli.

I have been using Bottarelli for about a year and a half and they are the best service that i have subscribed to and i have tried probably more than 20. I tracked them carefully for about the first 4 months that I used them and for a $2000 investment I was up about $40,000. usually trading 10 contracts – my guess is that they are right about 80% of the time and have a uncanny ability to pick a stock that is just about to go up or down. They have so many followers that one needs to act… Read more »

Can’t seem to track the performance they claim, in fact a couple of times the return was way negative, they would claim it was positive return on the trade they recomended…. would stay clear away from this publication.

What is the real-world performance of Bottarelli Research Live?

The posted hypothetical track record looks like B.S…. good luck getting in and out of an option for just a .36 gain given the spreads and volatility expansion / crush.

I’ve been tracking the free Live trades for about 9 months and so far of the closed trades trading the underlying, a 69% win rate and avg profit/loss is 6.55% selling at roughly +/ 15%. Open is currently 62% win rate and 1.45% avg profit/loss.

I too tried the “free” trial last week and the track record they give themselves is very generous. They open a bunch of positions during the trial expecting you to subscribe so they can help you get out of them. They were all losers really. Lost almost $1000 in one week…not so free. I called and emailed as well with no reply. Stay away.

Bottarelli is a flat out crook. Here is why I feel that way. Last year I took a one year subscription to one of their services. 6 months in I received an email saying they are combining two of their services into one more complete offering that will add weekly options to the monthlies I subscribed to. Because this new service is more expensive, they’re cutting my remaining time in half and adding a month. So my 6 months of paid for service became 3 plus 1 = 4. What did I get for losing 2 months of service? 6… Read more »

The guy is a crook. He lets his losers run and cuts his winners short. Ifhe was so good he would be trading hisown account or managing a hedge fund.

The only reason I even checked one star was because there wasn’t a lower choice.. I’ve been waiting more than two years for my “guaranteed” refund. Brian must have graduated from Trump U. and majored in – How To F..k Your Subscriber By Butt Dragging -.

Hi there, I keep getting emails from Bottarelli research live, and boy do they ever sound tempting!!! Reviews on line have been pretty unfavourable. Wondering if any Gummies have had recent experience?

Best,

This service is a total scam. If they would use a real account, the return will definitely be negative. Very dishonest.

Took spring trial and before I could cancel my ccard was charged – eventually got refund since they used an old e-mail of mine to inform me of the pending charge.
I now follow the free daily updates on large options trades. I tracked them in a practice account for several months and found that very few actually made money- which tells me that there is a lot of stupid money out there!

I subscribed from March to June 2016 – I certainly agree with most all the comments above – all except the glowing one, which is highly suspicious. “Results” I got didn’t even remotely match those claimed by Bottarelli, and the pace of trading required to even place trades at reasonable prices was almost impossible (in my experience) to achieve.

I use Bank America’s ShopSafe program , which allows me to set up a virtual credit card number for a limited dollar amount and time period. That way if I pay for a trial subscription for $10, my virtual credit card limit is $10 and the expiration date is 30 days from the date of virtual card creation, I cannot be auto-renewed and charged for a new subscription. I have used the ShopSafe BoA feature many times without ever being auto-renewed.

With so many subscribers, by the time the email is received, read, and acted upon, you’ve missed the opportunity. Very difficult to get into a position at his target price. Target price has moved substantially most times. So, when he declares profits, it’s only for himself and the first few clients in…everyone else doesn’t realize those profits.

Bottarelli is a flat out scam artist! He recommends plays in illiquid names, and then marks his “entries” and “exits” at levels that hardly anyone is able to achieve. Couple that with the fact that you’re paying commissions getting both into and out of positions (that obviously aren’t reflected in his records, and are often for multiple legs of a single trade) and suddenly this service becomes a guaranteed way to lose your money. Aside from that, his explanations for trades don’t even make any sense. “Last quarter stock XYZ moved a lot on earnings, so I think it will… Read more »

Have to agree with the majority of comments here. I was subscribed with most of Bottarelli’s option services for about 12 months and it was a disaster. I have to assume responsibility for pulling the trigger on the trades, but in almost every case I could not achieve the firm’s stated results. I was day trading options and spent every moment when the market was open in front of a TradeStation trading screen, but it didn’t matter. I even wrote Bryan Bottarelli to complement his trading prowess because I could execute a trade recommendation within 30 secs after receiving a… Read more »
