Option plays (volatility) based upon quarterly earnings releases.

I just read some reviews about his weekly one and they were bad – seems it’s options based

As of 1/27/2018 they are claiming all closed trades have been winners. I wonder if they are failing to consider expired options as closed trades. Certainly they should.. If ANY of their trades failed to materialize a gain it would necessarily result in either an expiration or a closed trade with a loss. I guess nothing has ever gone against them ???!!!

Yes correct… They are not counting the options recs that expired worthless, because they weren’t able to close out an option that doesn’t have a bid!!! I call
B.S. on that! Don’t fall for it…

absolutely, things have gone against them. Look at the Apple Options play just last week; recommended January 26 call with strike price of 175 and a limit of $5.00. It never went very much above $5 and quickly turned into a loss, going all the way to zero. It Expired worthless. Even though Alan said he was watching this stock very carefully, no mention was made of the downturn , nor when to get out.[ information that subscribers paid for and he promised]. Most alarming is that no mention was made of the trade , at all, in the Friday… Read more »

Thank you for your post. I didn’t subscribe to his service but your real world experience affirms some of my most important concerns.

I’m old enough to know better too, sadly. I bought into the service in mid January ’18. All the recommendations were calls, of course, and all the calls went south. ONE trade, only, was a break-even. The system Alan uses to choose his recommendations is sadly deficient. If it really worked, do you think he’d share it with us?

I searched on his name and found an accuracy rate of 54%. It is a fabulous sales piece with language that makes you want to borrow $2K so you can lose it. They really know how to get to your credit card thru your emotional, not rational mind.

Alan Knuckman is a TOTAL FRAUD and Agora Financial promotes him big time. As of 2/2/18 he claims a perfect record of 22 winners closed. His current portfolio has 8 winners and 7 losers. Some are big losers. He recommends holding all of the losers and makes no recommendation of selling to close any of them to cut losses. His list of closed recommendations are all positive because his advice keeps losers until they expire with no value and his subscribers lose 100%. Because he doesn’t close negative recommendations, they don’t show up on his closed list and he doesn’t… Read more »

I would have made a LOT of money if I had bought puts in every case he recommended calls. As it turns out, and sadly, the opposite is true. Out of 20 or so trades, ONE was break-even; ALL the rest were losers. My average loss was 51.2%. I would have been SO much better off simply flushing the subscription fee for 42 Day retirement down the toilet.

My advice for everyone is to pass on anything coming out of Agora. They are long on wild hyperbole and short on positive results. Most of their marketing is deceptive at best and this “42 Day Retirement” is a perfect example. I don’t know if anyone has noticed but Agora, along with a host of other questionable trading services companies now no longer offer money back refunds for any of their “premium” services. What they offer instead is the promise of an extra year of the particular service if it doesn’t perform to expectations. Obviously such a “guarantee” costs them… Read more »

Agora is indeed interested only in collecting subscription fees. If they manage to make a good investment recommendation, that’s mere coincidence. I got nothing but losses by using them and would have done far better flushing my subscription cost down the toilet. One of their newest services, “42-Day Retirement” recommends option trades based on their “proprietary algorithm” being able to recognize insider trading. One problem is that they only recommend purchasing call options, which are great if the market is only climbing. Unfortunately, I decided to try the service starting mid-January ’18 with the market at its recent peak. Of… Read more »

Until a April 12, 2018 I was a subscriber to Alan Knuckman’s “42 Day Retirement.” During my 3 month trial subscription beginning mid-January, I lost a ridiculous amount of money by following Alan Knuckman’s recommendations. The trades I’ve been able to get into within the “buy” guidelines have resulted in huge losses up to this point; the majority of recommendations lost significant value either immediately after I purchased them or after the first subsequent earnings report. The one exception was AMD, which gave me a small profit on half my position (I sold the remaining half for a balancing loss,… Read more »
