I lost more than $7000 investing $2000 in each recommendation so far during 2018. To me, O’Dell’s claims seem to be inflated because you can seldom buy in and cash out at his advertised prices even if you react quickly. On his biggest trade this year, I assume most subscribers missed the trade because they couldn’t buy below the max recommended price. If you missed that trade, you probably lost money.

My recommendation is to stay away from anything he is selling.

I have completed an analysis of all Cycle 9 trade recommendations in 2018 (12 trades, 11 realized) as of 10/31/18. Assuming an equal dollar amount for each trade results in a cumulative pre-tax return of 16.11%. I’ll leave it up to each individual whether such a return is compelling on a risk-adjusted basis.

Want to guess what happens to the strike price when you tell all your readers to sell? Yep, only Adam makes out on the trade.

Adams methodology is based on plagiarism of the sector rotation strategy. If you want to follow this method, all you need is a book on the subject from Amazon. The guy has a good model, take commonly available knowledge, repackage it and sell it.

How is it possible that this can exists. And thats all part of Dent’s Research. Probably they are researching
the bad trades and tell there subscribers to go long.

I’m in both of Adam’s programs. 10× and the cycle 9. One thing I will say is that I have never lost money faster. I’m down 96 % on his 10 x and on his cycle 9 3 of his picks right now are down over 90%.
He should be ashamed and at least refund our membership fees. I did notice that on his 10x he doesn’t list the big lost we took on it in the eportfilio. He sorta forgot to put that in.

Overall I am not at all impressed by the performance of the picks. In fact , over the past three months or so my returns are a negative 30 to 40%.

Sorry to hear. Did you get your refund money back?

Correction: I counted half closed positions twice to get my 20% average return per trade last 4-5 years. More like 27% (at least according to my math). But I figure if you take/get the 90 day money back guarantee, you can do your own analysis.

The 90 money back guarantee got me to try it out. Decided if I could make back the annual fee in the 3 months I would stick with it. First thing I did was analyze their stated performance. Noticed quickly that one is in cash (waiting for next buy signal) for nearly 1/3rd of the time. But the average profit (according to my calculations) was about 20% for an average pick in about an average of about 68 days. That means you could probably do this 4 times in a year, so that’s more like 80% annualized return. Also noticed… Read more »

I joined Cycle 9 late November 2014 based on the extraordinary profit claims in their emails. Once subscribed, I had access to their actual trade performance. For 2014, looking across all trades, the Cycle 9 system was showing a 14% *loss* YTD. To be fair, the 2013 data was better and showed a 33% gain. Combining all 2013 and 2014 trades, Cycle 9 was showing an 11% profit. In the same period, the DJIA went from 13,435 to 18,053 (up 34%). The conclusion was clear: in that period a DJIA index returned 3x more than following all the Cycle 9… Read more »

Really a service without any value. $995 for nearly nothing. How is it possible that a Harvard
educated man as Harry Dent fully promoted this very bad idea. I will ask a partial refund.
Has anyone gets an answer from the publisher on these complaints?

Why not go against his trades if he is that bad? You then would have a profitable position.

So far I have been doing quite well with Cycle 9 over the past 4 months (July 2017) We will see how things do when the market turns.

I wish I would read these reviews before I subscribed to Cycle 9. I have been a member for 10 months. There were 12 recommended buys. I tracked all buys & sells on a spread sheet. here are the results; 4 loses 3 were total loses. one trade was break even, one small profit & one profitable. Three trades I did not make because of 4 loses almost in a row. After 6 trades I had 4 losses and lost faith that Adams system works. I did not make the next 3 trades. I had lost $2500 so I bought… Read more »

I think some of the Dent people do a good job but that definitely does not apply to Adam O’Dell. I joined the lifetime network 18 months ago at the cost of $10,000. Since then, single handily, Adam’s recommendations have carved out a 32% loss in my portfolio. He is cocky and so sure of himself, but he does not perform. Even more frustrating is his inability to admit any type of failure. Instead he continually relies on extending the time frame for his results until he can show numbers that he likes. Adam – just answer one question. What… Read more »

Losers of trades based on Adam O dell–he has zero in his name and that is what you get.if you follow him.Check James Rohrbach-trend following on daily chart with ema15 above ema30 for entry. exit long when ema10 goes below ema20.reverse logic for shorts. do testing for6 weeks understand the process as you backtest you make gains easily.

thanks for sharing the O’dell info – am watching for sources / research that confirms momentum trade/ trends and macro-events. I’ve been member of Lemetropole which the Gold group (GATA) ..- great analysis of banks ( JPM) and COMEX /market manipulation/ SEC cover-ups. Could we review results and help this community with insights? Will share info …

I took a trail for Adam’s Cycle 9 service back in 2014 for a couple of months. The thing that really made me mad was that they claimed a 74% win rate, but when you looked at their performance list (which you couldn’t see until you subscribed), they legged out of a number of winning positions twice, and thus counted them as two wins. Needless to say, they exited out of the losers only once. So overall their record was around 59%, which is very close to 50/50 in my book, and definitely not worth the subscription price. I don’t… Read more »

I’m in the Max Profits Alert, and it’s been a phenomenal loser – I made a lot of money with Harry’s recommendations, but lost it x1.5 with Adam’s crap “system” – not only is it terrible, but there’s very little communication, no answer to questions, and the recommendations are few and far between, unlike the rate at which recommendations were promised. — Adam should’ve done a mea culpa on this one and called BS on himself, because this is a program for how to make the other guy rich.

Am looking at Cycle 9 as possible research tool. Only see one positive. Is “Max Profits Alert” part of Cycle 9? or a lower cost alt.? would you like to share expense and exchange info?

I recently signed up for Cycle9. I took a large $7 put position on PBR @ .45
cents. Should I add to this if the price drops to .40 cents? Adam mentioned he might be rethinking the energy sector. Please let me know, thanks.

i am looking at the Cycle 9 pitch — and thought about sharing the cost rather dive in to service . Was it worth it? are you still in? or willing to share info?

RJ, I’m in the same boat. I’m the on fence about joining his service. It sounds very compelling. Have you joined yet? Anyway I can reach you?

Nothing that comes from Harry Dent or his minions with respect to trading is worth 2 cents. And that goes for Weisse, Davidson, Rickards, Lewitt et al.
They are all great writers but when it comes to trading advice a big fat 0.

Really? Because I joined, and looking at the history, if you made every trade he recommended in 2016, you would have made over 200% of whatever you put in each position.

WHY do you say this? Don’t just blow hot air. What proof do you have? From what I can tell, some positions will lose 100%, but overall you make a lot more than you lose. Unless he is lying about his archives and past trades, which I have seen no evidence of.

I have done the return the calculations for Cycle 9 in 2016. Total pre-tax return of 3.32% before commissions for all 17 trades. I assumed an equal dollar amount is invested in each trade.

Actually, his numbers don’t add up. The option price he indicates as his purchase price is, for the most part, lower than the price you pay. I’ve lost a considerable amount of money with both his systems and have elected for the past several months to read his recommendations as I would read a novel. In my view, playing options his way is like betting on a racehorse.

glad to see report that offers balance on O’dell/ Cycle 9… did you find time to vet his picks or just move on the GO signal — GREEN ?

The number one criteria with any service with picks is performance. I only gave the service 5 months try, during that time I lost 27% of the capital I had chosen to invest in the picks, buying and selling as suggested. Obviously not a good performance. I was also frustrated that there were so FEW picks to begin with, which meant every pick that came out (you are paying $995/yr for the service) was costing about nearly $100 and you felt nearly compelled to do the pick, whether you liked it or not. My 2 cents, definitely not worth the… Read more »
