I have taken this letter twice for three months at a time.They seem to do alot of original research at both global level and into individual picks. They are stong into monitoring gold and hard money currency. Will be renewing toward end of this year.

Great monthly read with weekly updates. Portfolio of stocks to pick at end of newsletter and portfolio weightings. Technical and Fundamental macro analysis. No real technical analysis on stock picks- just ‘these are the best of the group’ type comments etc. Fantastic newsletter. This and Chris Weber’s are must reads for an overal investment perspective to help you sleep at night. I have been a subscriber for like 4 years now. Overal sticking with their plan has made me money but even they were not prepared for last spring’s ‘deflation of everything’ but still doing quite well overall on their… Read more »

I have been a subscriber for almost 3 months. The newsletter is well-written and very informative. The monthly reports are usually about 12 pages long. It gives a global and macro picture of what is going on. The charts are helpful for visual understanding of where the markets (gold and mining, energy and resources, currencies and interest rates/bonds and US/global) are. On the last page, there are recommendations for asset allocation and what stocks to buy. The US stocks are primarily ETF’s. It was also one of the better newsletters based on performance in Hulbert’s Marketwatch report. However, there is… Read more »

Yeh – what he said: =:-) Review by JOHN HAEDRICH, September 12, 2009 This is a classy, superb publication. I’ve let my subscription lapse but was a subscriber to the Aden Forecast for four or five years. Am thinking of re-subscribing. Wonderfully simplified, yet powerfully sober-minded macro-view of the markets. Richard Russell says he’d give them five stars for overall quality, and a sixth star if he could. I second that, and John Haderich’s comment above. Lukester p.s. I wish to take this opportunity to offer a praise for Stock Gumshoe also, from a newbie!! I really like the “Vinegar,… Read more »

I have been interested in markets for many years, subscribing to Aden sisters in 2003. It is frustrating for me to write in detail about the Aden sisters. I am an impatient person and hate writing. Hope this helps less experienced people, I have read the above comments and note some of the negatives. I currently am NOT a subscriber. This publication is not for get rich fools. If you want to learn how the big picture works, ie, currency, bonds, stocks, commodities, Gold interest rates ect, this is right up the top of the best of the best, in… Read more »

Have subscribed for 8 months. Their calls have been about 80%+ accurate as to timing. I have not followed advice fully and timely but if I had I would be more dollars ahead. In any case their advice helped me avoid most of the recent unpleasantness(market meltdown). Next time maybe I will have more faith in their advice.

I have just recently signed up with the Aden sisters since according to the Hubert Digest which tracks 180 newsletters the adens are on of the best as was “Uncle Harry” who also used to have a newsletter which was over 45 years another top newsletter that did really well. Overall their newsletter is really good but I do need a bit more detail. I hope they come out with a book on investing and trading as I am sure it will sell very well.

I like the independant thought of the Aden sisters who are free of the gestalt at other services . For those who want daily advice to supplement their monthly views and weekly updates, I highly recommend The Kirk Report and Charles Nenner Research. Kirk is a day trader and provides excellent education on charts, ETFs and stocks. Nenner, an MD and former Goldman guy, provides targets and ranges for indicies, gold/silver, crude, bonds, bunds, currencies and nat gas. He lives in
Europe. He publishes three times a week and on Sunday.

Perhaps I have been an Aden subscriber for the wrong time period, but initially I spent several months reading the newsletter waiting for actionable recommendations. Often the picks seem a bit Dennis Gartman-ish in that they want to buy strength but some of the move is already been made. Hence, I have not made a lot of money in the almost 2 years I have subscribed. They spend more ink talking about gold or a market being strong IF it stays above a certain level but give us no clue as to whether or not it will. That much I… Read more »

I find the Adens consistently correct (particularly for the longer term) and informative, and have generally found their newslettter to be the best one I’ve subscribed to. No hype at all. They do tend to be a bit cautious – but that means safe, which is a good thing. Often if I disregard what they say, I lose more money than if I had done what they suggested. Occasionally if I am a bit braver than they suggested, it has paid off slightly. They know their stuff.

Though I am not currently an Aden Forecast subscriber, I first subscribed when they first published, 1981 as I recall. My first subscription started with issue #2. I had met them previously via a mutual friend, Blanchard. Their letter has slowly evolved from a precious metals only letter to one of global coverage and concern. I stopped my first subscription in 1985 or ’86 after losing a fair amount of money following them. I re-subscribed in 1993. They soon recommended bonds. However, in 1995 they did a flip-flop on the bonds and then 30 days later another flip-flop. It was… Read more »

Their newsletters are informative. Beyond that, I’d very very very strongly suggest finding specific investment ideas elsewhere. The sisters are prone to recommend on the basis of what *should* happen, rather than what *is* happening. Only when things don’t turn out well do they slowly start moving toward reality, while still believing in the ‘should.’ When reality turns out not to be so hot, then a lot of good money is lost. Case in point: they went from 40% precious metals in mid 2012 to 30% then to 15% (actual metal) after in April 2013 when the bottom finally fell… Read more »

A follow up based on another six months of experience with the Adens. I’d go farther than my earlier review and say that contrary to other reviews, the Adens’ analyses are driven by libertarian conservativism (Rand Paul), with the typical gold-loving bent of that crowd. The fact that they can do up charts and calculate resistance points doesn’t make them insightful or knowledgeable, but merely market statistical technicians. Substantively, the Adens are charlatans who don’t have a clue what’s going on a good part of the time and don’t seem to learn from experience. Better to look for more open-minded,… Read more »

I’ve been a subscriber for 4 years. Net result of this subscription period is I’ve made money. The sisters overstayed in the metals market (gold in particular) and as a result I had a rocky period for a year and a half. They were slow to recognize the down trending and exiting positions was slow to come around. However, their equity calls and in particular long-term US government bond calls were stellar and I’ve made up for the gold errors and then some. I use them for some of my money and like the results thus far. Folks get impatient… Read more »
