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.
