On Microblog: Questions about 2 of Agora's pitches

I just got another promotion for this service (9-15-19) to be a "charter' subscriber. Ha! They no longer have a trial period, but by golly, if they don't double your money at least 20 times in the first year, they'll give you a second year FREE! Just what[...]

On 25 Cent Trader

Same here . By the time the trade reco hits my in box the option has already jumped out of buy range. I had only one chance to place a trade out of 4 weeks and that one was a 40% loss. Claimed my refund. Not a viable service in my experience.[...]

On Will Feb. 4 be "The Greatest Day in Stock Market History" as Sports Gambling Explodes?

I subscribe to Strategic Investor and your picks are spot on. However, Tucker issued a sell on Eldorado on 10/30 as stop-loss was breached due to ERI's revenue decline in traditional gambling venues.[...]

On Late Summer Pickings: September 2018

Right on, Jack. What people don't think about is that the search for 'a cure' cancer and many other diseases has been going on for decades. It now is a multi-multi-billion $ enterprise, employing hundreds of thousands of people. Do you think they want to a[...]

On Microblog: The Seven Figure Formula

Greg Guenthner is running the same advert again now in Aug. '18, they have cut & pasted new audio for the 'must hear from you by' date, now Aug. 13. Still $49. Cannot help thinking that if this was very successful, they'd be asking a lot more for it by now[...]

On Zenith Trading Circle

Robert R., I appreciate your comments. I just watched Shah Gilani's ridiculously long video (about an hour!) for his Money Zone system. Repeated the same info at least a dozen times, must be getting paid by the word! I'm always suspicious of some "new" sys[...]

On Microblog: Any insight into the Tim Sykes Penny Stock summit he's holding this week?

Don't you just love their fantastic "guarantee"! Like so many other publications are doing now to prevent mass refund requests, they offer to give you another year free if they don't deliver a minimum # of winning trades- according to THEIR accounting, not[...]

On Rickards: "This $0.70 Crypto Game Changer Could Make You a FORTUNE in 2018… Starting Next Monday"

I subscribe to Richards Strategic Intelligence, his entry level letter to be informed about what the global elites are up to and the progress of the New World Order, death of the dollar, etc. The investment recos in that letter are very basic so I tried hi[...]

On Rickards' Gold Speculator

What one needs to keep in mind with all the different high priced newsletters published under Jim Richards name is that these are not his picks but the person he hires as 'editor' of each one. His Gold Speculator is run by Byron King who had two past lette[...]

On "40 U.S. Retailers Projected for Termination"

I'm one of those dumb saps that bought into Lewitt's persuasive pitch last fall for Zenith Trading and lost 100% of everything I put into his recommended trades. At least I got my subscription back by canceling before the 3rd month ended. One thing I fo[...]

On Zenith Trading Circle

Tom, I wish I was far enough out in "left field" knowledge wise when it comes to options so that I would have stayed away from them. I'd have many $1000's still in my brokerage account it I had. Zenith was just my last disaster from many other option tradi[...]

On "God's Gold" at less than $9 a share teased by Jim Rickards

For Rickards/King to be using such a well known and publicised miner as PVG as a tease makes me wonder why anyone would pay $3k for their 'research'. Pretty much the same list of miners as everyone else recos. I decided against Rickards gold letter as soon[...]

On December Idea of the Month: What to Buy During Complacency?

Travis, Thanks for another great indepth article. Your articles can be as good as some monthly investment letters! To profit on a likely jump in the VIX, have you ever considered buying call options on $VIX.X, the CBOE Volatility Index?[...]

On Friday File: Lewitt's Zenith Trading Circle, and Thoughts on Deflation, Hedging and Gold

I, too, took the plunge on Zenith Trading. I subscribed to Rickards Intelligence Triggers for a year but just dropped that as his batting average was no better with his 'Kissenger Cross" method than any other option service I have tried over the years;[...]

On Examining Sjuggerud's "Limited Time 2nd Chance to Get Rich with '292-C' Shares" Pitch

I have the same wonderment. I'm holding off on any new long investments until I see what kind of wild & crazy things shake up the investment world between now and the election. Too many dire forecasts by well connected and knowledgable people to ignore[...]

On Stansberry's "Metropolitan Club" plan for the Gold Bull Mania

Steve, I agree with you about collectibles. the bid/ask spread is usually so big that only the dealers make money on them. And collectors will be just trying to survive like everyone else when TSHF event hits.[...]

On Outstanding Investments

Byron King maintains a high rating for his OI investment letter by keeping 12 year old picks in gold funds/stocks that were made by his predecessor. He rarely ever issues a sell reco or takes profits (in the three years I subscribed), just keeps piling up[...]
