I’m newly retired and got sucked in by a number of newsletters including Money Map Express, Agora Financial, Stansburry, Palm Beach Research Group, Motley Fool, and others … to the tune of about $6,000.00. Most are still in the trial period and can be refunded. Are any of them worth keeping?

Just a couple days ago there was an Options Play of 103,000 Contracts on UVXY with a $9.00 PUT Strike Price and an expiration on the Jan., 2017. Now Baron’s says this is the largest Options Play ever but Baron’s also says it is just the start of a set up for a Bigger Play, […]
