The decision moose (http://decisionmoose.com/Home_Page.html) is one of the best values on the web.

Since 1996 there have only been 50 trades and ONLY about 5 were loosers — if you can beat that please post it here!

It is Free. In the last 5 years it is up 110% and in the last 12 months it is down 1% while the SPY is down 42% in that same 12 months.

All the prior trades on the first page so you don’t have to do a lot of probing and searching.

It trades very little – making it great for IRA’s or people who don’t like to trade a lot.

Contains no advertisements.

I have been trading it for 2 years and think it is one of the best services on the WEB — paid or free!

If you find anything better (or even close) please review it on the stock gumshoe!

This is an interesting site in that it just recommends a single ETF rather than a portfolio. (e.g. High Conviction) Although this site has a great historical record, I’m concerned that its last two picks in a row have been losses.

Like several market models that I have seen lately, it may be that this model has worked well in the past but is not well suited to today’s market. And given how much investor sentiment has changed — truly changed — over the last year, it probably shouldn’t be that surprising. (How many people among the general public still believe in ‘buy and hold’?) So my advice would be: watch with caution.

Secondly I rated the ‘Educational’ aspect as only two stars since the viewpoint is so strongly libertarian that it strikes me as unbalanced bordering on unhinged. I’m all in favor of free markets, but I don’t think the world is so simple that would be better off abandoning all regulations.

I’ve been following the Decision Moose for a while now and find the site extremely useful. The site is free and provides a fantastic weekly update for what’s going on in the markets and various summaries. I would continue to go to the site for these updates alone, but the site also offers an ETF allocation model that is free as well. I’m not going to write about the ins and outs of it here, but it is fully explained on the website.

I have “paper” traded the site’s recommendations and they have done well. For free … the site is fantastic!!! It’s easily one of my top 5 favorite investing websites!

I found Decision Moose a month or so ago via this website. I am stunned at the simplicity and good investing sense presented throughout Dirlam’s website. One of the few without hype AND he has a good sense of humor.

He recommends against jumping into a recommended ETF if it’s been several weeks since it was recommended. However, I did a little homework and plunked out a couple thousand into EPP, his current hold. I have made about 8.5% in a matter of weeks. I do have a trailing stop, just in case it goes south! I am waiting for him to switch, then will plow a bit more money into his recommendation. Everything he recommends makes sense, just get the timing right – which apparently he does quite well.

I have subscribed to (and cancelled) several highly-hyped newletters, some of which are reviewed on this site. Decision Moose is far better, and at a much better price!
