I’ve subscribed to Chris Rowe’s Trend Rider service for 8 months or so… and i’m something like 13 for 17 so far on his pics. The guy’s technical analysis and introduction to the NYSE bullish percent index alone is worth the price of admission, and the education on options in his subscriber area is the best i have EVER SEEN, bar none. He has an incredible way of explaining a complicated subject and making it easy to understand. Chris will send out an alert to buy a specific put/call, for a specific company, at a specific price, and tell you… Read more »

I had the opposite experience with trend rider and CRISS last year, most of the picks tanked and he lets options go all the way to worthless. Definitely not worth the 2k price tag for CHRISS or the trend rider subscription price. He may be having an ok run now, but last summer and fall it was a disaster.

BTW if your determined to take his CRISS course for 3,000, people are selling it for $100-200 on a few sites selling used courses.

I also had a dismal experience with The Trend Rider. (My subscription started in June ’08.) What bothered me most was seeing his teasers about the 80% win rate while I was losing money on his recommendations.I didn’t realize that his subscribers would drive up the price of the options, making an additional hurdle to overcome on the way to profits. Their customer service is very good, however, and I have an 18 month subscription that won’t expire until November. I just ignore his e-mails, and look at it as a lesson learned. Besides, it was through The Tycoon Report… Read more »

If you are considering this subscription, ask for the overall return on the sample portfolio since its inception. If they are honest, it will be in the 3% range. They offer the CHRISS system which will teach you how to profit from options. But,wait, now there is options GPS. These guys know how to make money. By selling subscribtions to their advice columns and courses at a big price. I can make an accurate claim that you can make a 150% return at the black jack table. All you have to do is sit there and play until you get… Read more »

Chris Rowe’s recommendations are big losers. I recently lost big time on his FAZ and TNDM recommendations then cancelled the service before the trial period was over. He gives useless technical insight on his picks as well as the market, and rarely updates his losing picks. He bets against good companies with tons of cash in a bull maket. He is clueless. He would not know good technical analysis if it was shot all over his face. SAVE YOUR MONEY! Luckily I have had good success with another service that has made up for the Chris Rowe adventure. It is… Read more »

I tried this one for a few months. Every trade was a loser. (This is a case where high consistency is not a good thing.) To be sure, in the past month the stock market has been going nowhere so trades based on trends haven’t been likely to work. (Selling options rather than buying them has worked better for me lately.) But still, I’d expect better from a pricey newsletter like this.

Chris Rowe is definitely a very smart analyst/money manager. He did have a crappy run this year without question. But I have been a subscriber since 2005 and he went some quarters with 95% win rates. He went through 05, 06 and 07 hitting about 4 out of5 winners. 08 was good in that right before the market tanked he BEGGED his subscribers to get bearish and at least don’t be bullish and this made me 7 figures in profits. He was a little better than even for 2008. So when the guy has a bad year for 2009 I… Read more »

I just subscribed to Trend Rider after reviewing their educational emails for over a year. Chris Rowe trumpeted a great track record in his last email “Some good news & some bad news” including one 267% winner. After joining, ($750 for 3 mos) I reviewed the TR portfolio which goes back to 2005. The %267 ‘winner’ isn’t there at all and for 2009 there are many more losing trades than winners. Going back to 2005 still reveals a terrible track record with some 100% losers and many options expiring worthless. The only way to get a refund is call their… Read more »

I’m about 5 winners and 21 losers with this guy over the last 9 months. To break even on his pics right now i have to gain about 300%. (I typically put about $2000 or so into each pic and keep $8000 in cash as part of the trade like he teaches, so i need to make about $6000 to break even; i’m really only down a small percentage on my whole portfolio, but i’m still down in a 6 month bull market that has gone up 40% that sucks). His technical analysis is actually very good, and it’s obvious… Read more »

I just started a few months ago so my opion is shortsighted. I have made back my subscription fee already with just a few of his trades. So far so good. I am glad to have read about the bad experiences. I will definitly keep my eyes open.

Used the service since 2005 so ever since launch. 2009 was not a good year. Every other year was. 2008 started off bad but made insane money during the crash and decent money aside from that although there were some big losers, in 2008 I came out on top. 05, 06, 07 was awesome. 07 market topped out and Chris called it the whole time from April through years end he was nailing the Wall Street stocks. Saw someone above mention losing on FAZ and TNDM. I lost on FAZ. But made over 80% on TNDM. Model portfolio in TTR… Read more »

Just to clarify what I said above about “nailing Wall Street stocks” – Chris takes both bullish and bearish positions so he was making us crazy money on put options on Wall Street Stocks starting at 2007 top.

Sorry if confused U.

I subscribed to the Trend rider in the fall of 2007 for one year. I found the performance to be so so. I lost on most positions opened as recommended. He boasted about making more money in bear markets than bull markets, but I never saw any of it. I had a small account, so I’d buy one option at a time and see how it did. Out of 7 or so trades, I lost on 4 or 5. Definitely a bad run. I did have one winner that around 90%, but I still came out at a loss. Having… Read more »

I subscribed in 2007 and made some money and lost some money. In 2010 I have been making lots of money with The Trend Rider and luckily missed some of the losers. But what I’ve learned by reading what he writes to us has made me a much better trader and I’m using that to make lots of money on my own. I’m still with the service. I enjoy it.

Trend Rider is no longer published as Chris is in retirement but probably not for long. He writes for The Tycoon Report on Tuesdays ” Technical Tuesdays” a free service through the Institute of Individual Investors. He is the co founder of the above and they offer education of various sorts of investing. I am a member of thier Alliance and have learned tons…. for me its good. I was a member of Trend Rider but only got the last 6 months before he stopped.
