Fibtimer… I really wanted to love Fibtimer and maybe I didn’t make money because I didn’t give it enough time. They apparently posted some low double digit returns for all of 2008 but I started my subscription about the end of October. They offer a lot for their $300 per yr subscription price. You can follow their ETF timer, REIT timer, small cap timer, currency time, stock timer or all the above. I followed the ETF timer and I lost money – there are a lot of recommended trades and I think you must have the won tons to do… Read more »

Fibtimer states that TimerTrac.com rates their stock market timing as number one. However, buying and holding a S&P 500 Total Return Index Fund or Exchange-Traded Fund, like SPDR, would generate a profit that is essentially the same as using the Fibtimer S&P 500 buy and sell signals, switching to a money market fund upon a sell signal.

If TimerTrac rates Fibtimer as number one, then every other service that it tracks performs worse than the S&P 500 Total Return Index! Hence, neither Fibtimer or TimerTrac provide any tangible… Read more »
