Chuck Hughes has several major complaints against him. Most people seem to lose money with his picks. Beware

So, if he’s so successful at trading, why is he a pitchman selling crap on the internet??

Exactly! The answer is these so-called trading gurus are not using their miraculous strategies to make money. They know trading their own money is much too risky. They take in millions by hawking their advisory services, indicators, seminars, books, etc. Making a living by trading is very difficult which is why most people lose money. The only ones getting rich here are the gurus selling their useless “holy grail” systems.

Most people think Chuck Hughes’s trading recommendations are too good to be true. The fact is they are too good for the run of the mill complainers and whiners and (I hate to use the word) – ‘losers’ that have made comments here. They come in every stripe, with every sort of reason to belittle his picks and methodologies. For instance, that he is rolling out trades with big built up profits from the past, and you are wondering why on earth would I go in now, the position is already up so much. Well, all I can say is,… Read more »

2008 and 2009 happened a long time ago. If you had been smart enough to recognize a major sell off and the beginning of a recovery you too could be many times wealthier today. All you had to do was buy options in many companies that were never going to fail or go bankrupt. There were lots of $1 to $10 stocks to be bought in 2009. Why didn’t you do it? I listened to a lot of “Doom and Gloom Experts” and never got long and stayed long in anything. I missed the, 1987, 2002 and 2009, stock market… Read more »

Ignore this guy. He works for Hughes. You can tell by his angry defensiveness. A real winner would be better behaved and polite. These guys are crooks. And they despise you. Don’t fall for this guy’s (rtenney) prattle. Disgusting rant by another Hughes employee.

Hi Carol, Can you pl give some details? How long you tired his service? How many trades in total? Winners? Losers? Total cumulative % profit? Then it becomes easy to interpret your statement. Thanks.

No body can that answer that question. I have a trade guru out of 12 recommendations of the guru one will be a winner. You will lose on 11 trades. Most of the guru’s recommendations the premiums are more or less than $10.00. If you trade one lot of the gurus recommendations and make 100% profit; your gain is average $ 1000.00 while loosing $ 11000.00. that is a net loss of $10000.00 in 12 trades. I tried almost 3 t0 4 gurus and stopped trading options. With that $1000.00 I have, to spent on gurus pick I buy shares… Read more »

I tried so many different newsletters.Except 2 or 3 every thing is a money looser or no better than what the market gives.I have subscribed to 2 from Chuck Hughes. One recommends debit spreads deep in the money on high growth stocks like biotechs ,but you have to come out with a lot of premium and because these stocks are volatile sometimes they won’t come back up.So I didn’t like it. The second one is WCA which is actually a stock substitution method for “High Quality stocks and ETF .Deep in the money calls are purchased 1-2 months and rolled… Read more »

Chuck Hughes is a joke, all he does is brag about what he has done, (if it’s really true) he never gives any information that will help an individual be successful in the market.

He was an airline pilot… So, of course he is smarter than most people. He spent half of his life flying above the masses of people stuck on the ground. Right Chuck?

I called Hughes Optioneering Weekly Option Advisory 866-661-5664 today 10/1/2015. A gentlemen named Nathan said the minimum subscription is for one year at a cost of $5,000 and for two years its $7,000. Needless to say I did not subscribe.

Latest pitch is “6-Minutes to 6-Figures Program” Options trading – 6 months $997.00. Guarantee $100K profits in 6 months or your money back. Sounds too good to be true. Probably is. Anyone with current experience with this service?

Flyrod731:
Reread the “guarantee”. It says he (Chuck Hughes) will make at least $100,000, not the investor (“I will make at least $100k using this system…). So there is no guarantee of income.

AIM ‘6-Minutes-to-6-Figures’ (AIM 6×6) detailed trade instructions, which I’m going to send you by email… Are guaranteed to produce potential profits totaling at least $100,000 over the next 12 months…

Otherwise, I’ll return every penny you paid to join my AIM Cash program… But you will return nothing!

Check out http://www.chuckhughes.com and also http://www.worldcupadvisor which claims Chuck has won several trading awards/ competitions. I did buy a dvd and book of his once. Once Chuck was using the New Mexico marketing company, http://www.marketauthority.com, as were several others. I don’t like the emphasis on sales in the entire industry – why not emphasise performance, real trades, honesty and openness?

Pls be careful with his strategies he never mentions when he makes the trade so you never know his timeline. Anyone that knows option will tell u that time is very important. The more time you have the greater the cost and if the stock stays flat you lose the total investment.

Raffaele, have you actually read any of the Chuck Hughes “optioneering” materials? Most of the Hughes option stratiegies are based on DTIM (Deep In The Money) options that have little time value. It is true you begin to lose if the underlying goes against you but he also issues a stop loss for that. In one of his methods, he locks in a profit by adding puts once there is a profit in the long calls. Man, you are simply NOT purchasing much time value with the Hughes methods.

I’m an experienced options trader but one thing I noticed right off the bat in his intro video (the 15 min. video) is that this nutcase is buying options with LESS THAN A WEEK (in most cases) until EXPIRATION…VERY RISKY!! One example he shows buying HD Feb 2012 call options with 4 DAYS LEFT!! That is INSANE. All good traders know, the safe, higher probability options are deep in the money and thus are MORE expensive and you only look for profits around 20-30% (any more is just icing on the cake). I completely disagree with what I saw in… Read more »

Greg, would like to talk to you, I like trading deep in the money more often than not 1 delta’s and I do not like a wide spread between the bid and the ask. I was just looking at stocks with large drops today and did some on AMD with thoughts that it will pop back up some tomorrow. Could be an interesting day tomorrow with the bombs dropping in Syria tonight. I know it has been a while since you posted this but hope you get this message.

Bill, I would like to talk with you. As a newbie, the vast majority of options tactics that I have been learning about focus on OTM spreads. Except for Chuck Hughes, the only ITM spread I encountered is a so-called “in/out” debit spread (e.g. buy a call at one-strike ITM, sell another at one-strike OTM). But Hughes talks about spreads that are VERY deep ITM, and BOTH the short and long legs are deep ITM. You say you like trading deep ITM … could you point me to any material or content about that? Thanks in advance!

Dear Chuck, the best way to learn is to do some paper trading / experimenting on your own ! You will figure it out man ! best of luck to you

Greg, I notice your post is from more than one year ago. Hope you see this or at least my response will benefit others. I live in the Philippines and rarely order anything that needs shipping. I did order some Hughes “optioneering” materials in electronic PDF form for my wife. Chuck Hughe’s original core strategies are long term trend following either with stocks or with options. Nothing like what you describe. I do know he has six or seven strategies he sells these days for trend following and income generation. I believe one system is using WEEKLYs to generate income.… Read more »

I just viewed Chucks 45 min videos showing deep ITM options and his strategy of locking in a 30% profit with an ATM put likely same expiration (strangle). They must have read Greg’s post and are following his strategy now go figure. If you have any experience you should be able to do this without paying out $5K USD. The weekly options are only for those who use them as a day trade and you have a system. Is Chucks system better, I doubt it as by the time you get the trade emailed to you the robots have moved… Read more »

The site I will recommend to you is not a trading site but rather an Elliot Wave site. I have found it, over the last 8 years or so, to be the best way to get a sense of which direction the market is going in the long run, the intermediate run, the short run, and the very short run. You’ll have to learn Elliot Wave Theory in order for it to make sense, however. You can do that from Bob Prechter’s book, The Elliott Wave Principle. Unfortunately, however, Prechter is horrible at applying the EW principle to real markets,… Read more »

I joined the ” inner circle” and have in 4 months NOT MADE 1 PENNY. A complete losing scheme. I was solicited after looking at their site but really got pushed hard by their salesman. The salesperson even inferred that if it didnt work for me that i could receive a refund for the first year. It made sense to me with respect to the refund because the others that i had tried had all given refunds – cheerfully. That was an outright lie. You dont get refunds as i asked for it 2 months into the program and had… Read more »

This is what the investment service will tell unsatisfied customers.
“All your losses are your own fault”
“You have to expect some losing trades”
“The winners will make up for those losers”
and “Money management is mportant”
as long as you don’t run out of money first. LOL

I just had to do a little research to get behind the hype. It’s like nearly all other investment how to’s. Some lucky people may hit the lottery, most will only lose their hard earned money. Beware people, of claims to quick and easy riches.

I am a multi-millionaire from flipping apartment buildings. I started with NOTHING and built my estate over 12 years after spending the first half of my life working in HR. Retired at 49. I would NEVER tell anyone what I know. I trained my two sons to follow after me and I work with them almost daily. They are not allowed to give anyone my proprietary software or trading strategies. If everyone knew what I know, I couldn’t make a dime. If someone is making the money this guy and the other “gurus” claim to be making, why aren’t they… Read more »

Yup. If you have something really really good, you would NEVER tell anyone anything about it. Frankly, you would lie, obfuscate, and misdirect to protect it. I bought the book. Now I am getting ‘sold’. And believe me, they want my money. And it’s not just some ‘free’ book. You all do know that options ‘systems’ have been around, and have been losing money, but making money selling ‘the system’, since the ’80’s that I personally know of, right? I have to call this a scam. But I have no direct evidence. But if you want to do real work,… Read more »

I, like Grandmaster am in somewhat a similiar situation. I am here looking because of setting on cash that I want to invest in the market with hopes of getting more good returns. Nice to not have all your eggs in one basket. I am prepared to hit the real estate hard if and when these markets fall like a rock and the opportunities are everywhere because most will be too scared and unprepared to pick up all the gold nugggets laying all over the place. Amazing how few people do not have the ability to prepare for times like… Read more »

You already missed the real estate crash and the stock market crash. If you knew anything about historical cycles which repeat themselves, you might understand that we are at the very beginning of serious boom times for the economy, to include real estate and the stock market.

Think about the economic boom in America that followed the end of WWII. That is where we are at again now.

Exactly – Chuck Hughes (and with few exceptions, all these so-called expert traders) makes money by hawking his advisory services. For exactly the reason you stated – if he had come up with a high probability options system that made high returns consistently, why would he want to share it with anyone? That would risk ruining his system. Chuck is a very good salesman and knows enough about options trading to put together very convincing videos. Of course, you never know if these trades were ever taken and if any of his subscribers ever got into any of them, and… Read more »

I joined Chuck over a year ago on behalf of my handicapped sister who relies on her savings for monthly income. At first it went well — +10% in three months. Then the losses started — 70% before I pulled the plug and sent my sister a check for all her losses. But here’s the interesting part: In November 2015 I happened to check the stats on the Trading contest Chuck was entered in. He was in first place with a return of 120% to date. Not bad for almost 11 months work. I started to lose all my gains… Read more »

If you check the World Cup Trading Championships website you will notice that the contest that Chuck won in 2015 was NOT stock trading. It was futures trading so your comparisons of your account to his trading championship account doesn’t compare. http://www.worldcupchampionships.com/live-stats-3 I trade his methods using stocks in my retirement account and achieve pretty decent profits. Not anything like 300 % because I’m not using options but his Prime Trade Select method for picking stocks works great. It keeps me in stocks that are acutally trending and not just chopping around.

Bill, do you think you can pick up some of his writings and figure out the system enough if you are not a novice stock trader? I saw a couiple of programs on ebay and amazon for like $500 and wonder if he is using those for bait to get you sucked into his entire program where he tried to get much more out of you.

Bill you have hit the nail on the head. I also have watched a few of Chucks videos and agree it takes time. His one% rule about the deep ITM options makes sense and I will try to figure out and use it in my paper trades. Note taking from these is a great idea.

Chuck’s latest marketing campaign caught my attention for all the wrong reasons. The blatant hype and sales pitch in his AIM WEEKLY CASH and CHUCK’S CASH COW with little or no explanation of terms and conditions in the latter, before a request to hit the Add to Cart button, had red lights flashing everywhere for me. Consequently I went searching for fine print and there it was in plain sight – Option and stock investing involves risk and is not suitable for all investors. Only invest money you can afford to lose in stocks and options. Past performance does not… Read more »

Everything you need to know about trading options can be found free on the internet, or very cheaply for the price of a few books. The reason people will pay $5,000 or more for a course is because they are lazy and want someone else to make them successful. Nobody can make you successful at trading options, or investing in real estate, etc. Read, read, then read some more. Look at every free source of information out there. Then get a book, then another book, then another, until you’ve read as much as you can. And under no circumstance should… Read more »
