In a nutshell; a total waste of money. After 3 months of use it became clear that these folks are in the business of selling memberships and not providing very good information. Their return on investment spreadsheet is deceptive and, in many cases, they are suggesting you buy stocks at the highs. In one week they send buy and short suggestions on the same stock!!!! (Keep in mind, that this is not a day trading pick sight unless they release it as such) I asked for my money back and requested they return the balance of my unused membership. They… Read More »

I will be as succinct as possible……basically the service sucks……and they will be getting , “No More Bananas From Me”
You are presented with too much confusing data , and are left to decipher it all and then wait for certian criteria to click before placing a trade . Gee what are you paying for? Most subscribers want stocks they can purchase now!

I realize my rating is higher than most others are and perhaps I am an anomaly, but I have had excellent success swing trading with them for the last year. Often, I do take profits earlier than they suggest, usually around 6-8 percent for 75%, then a trialing stop for the remaining 25% . I like the fact that I can automate my trades and not have to sit at my computer all day. Sometimes it is hard to get the confirmation price that they do. I have easily recovered the $50 per month fee. I just renewed for another… Read More »

I use Gorillatrades for very short term swing trades. The subscription pays for itself. The stops they use are very liberal which may result in losses due to volatile markets, thus, I get out quick with smaller profits. It’s a good service in the way that I use it.

I’ve used Gorilla Trades and my biggest concern is how they present their results. They base their returns on any given stock on a “trigger” price, but advocate only buying a stock when it “confirms”. Some days, the stock confirms and hits its target, and is sold. There’s no way to profit on this scenario. The other scenario is that the stock “confirms”, but is already 3-4% in it’s profit territory. If you buy at that point, you may make a profit, but nothing close to what they claim unless you catch one of their winners. So many of the… Read More »

This is the similar problem I with them as well. You need to keep you eyeballs glued to the screen and time the buys and sells right or otherwise you’ll buy in too late or get stopped out just after buying. I sell just below their price targets or if I think the stock is gonna go the other way. Their system is all based on momentum. Their service I made money from overall in a bull market. Their picks are completely useless in a bear market however.

Bryon, trying to understand your criticism. “some days stock confirms, hits target,sold, but there is no way to profit this way. How would you do it??? And you say “stock confirms, but is already 3-4% in profit. Are you saying you expect their entry price to be at dead bottom of the change in trend?? If so can you recommend a similar pick service that catches that bottom more than 50% of the time?? i have been trying for about 10 years, and haven’t found such a service – at least one that says in business for a year or… Read More »

I had a one-month trial about 5 years ago and just got a free one-week trial. The confirmed recommendations that they made in the recent trial all went down but were not stopped out; they may be due to the market, but perhaps they should not make confirmations (an indication to buy) in a down market. Their system is intriguing but I just can’t go for it. Although they say it’s a mechanical system, which I take to mean that no judgment is required on my part, it seems to require a lot of my judgment as to whether to… Read More »

My issue is CONSISTENCY. Or lack of. The nightly newsletter arrives on time, but it is not the current day’s trade. Instead I open up yesterday’s email, which I have already read. I have complained many many times but this inconsistent mail has not been fixed. This problem happens about 1 day out of 10.
The subscription, I feel, is not worth the price…I’m going back to IBD and pay 1/2!

This is a scam. The website is simply plagiarizing ibd picks and passing them off as its own.

I tried the free trial, and quit after a week. I had a couple of issues; you had to interpret what they were trying to say and they were hard to follow. They had an excel sheet of about 70 picks, some held for 3 or 4 years, that really didnt match the markets performance over that time. They were holding J&J that was up about 8% over the 2 or 3 years they were holding it. There was no guide to portfolio management, allocation of capital, etc. Probably could match their performance with a mutual fund or ETF.

I just registered here after reading the last post about Gorilla Trades. I’ve been a very happy subscriber for almost two years. J&J is one of the 70 stocks in its current portfolio, but if you look at the portfolio spreadsheet properly, you’ll see that the first target was reached very early on for an 8.11% profit; a point in which they tell you to sell a portion of your position. However, if you look at the next category over, unrealized gain, you will see that it is holding a 43.34% gain (not including dividends) since it was recommended on… Read More »

not 100% of the picks are guaranteed. but if you follow their system you will make money. it works in a bull market, and ive even made money with the system in a bear market. Ive been investing for over 30 years and ive seen it all…. Ive seen the services that claim to beat the market over and over (scams). theres no ridiculous claims, theres no claim to make $30k in 7 days.

I have been a gorilla trades member for nearly a decade (8 years… but who’s counting).Flat out, gorilla trades has provided me with an additional stream of income, that I would not have had if I was trading in the market on my own. If you can look past the funny name and banana jokes, gorilla trades is definitely worth the cost. Just the options plays this year alone have paid for the subscription 20x over… and then some! Keep your emotions out of it, follow their system, and you will make money. As long as mr.gorilla is around, I… Read More »

Timely picks with enough advance warning to be able to capitalize. All of their picks aren’t big winners – if they were the owner would be on his yacht in the Cayman Islands with his Victoria’s Secret model girlfriend. But enough of the picks are winners that you can make profits and Improve your standard of living in a nice way!
I’m definitely happy I subscribe.

I’m not sure what the negative reviews on here are for. I’ve been trading using Gorilla for almost three years now and have been making more money than i was without it. No, its not gonna be right everytime nor does it claim to. I don’t see what the problem is. If you just follow their picks when they trigger you almost always make money. Theres always a chance to lose money but from what i’ve read on here it seems to be user errors.

I was using another service during the last correction on 01/2016-02/2016 and I lost a moderate sum of money, which made me sick to my stomach and gun shy trading for the time being I started using GT and I am happy to say I made up the losses I sustained. Plus I covered my subscription cost and maintained a reasonable return even though this is a tough market that seems to lack volume. This is an excellent simple service. I have made errors using the system. I let my emotion get involved and I was shook out of some… Read More »

27apr16 Facebook options trade
I was looking through the Gorilla Trades portfolio on 27april16 and I noticed that Facebook was priced near the entry of $108.– I called my broker, bought the 06may16 calls for $2.64 just before the market closed. Earnings were announced five minutes later and the stock popped to $117.50 then climbed in after hours to $121.– I sold around 10am 28apr16 for $7.66. I regularly make 200% to 450% trading options on Gorilla Picks I especially like the Gorilla Picklets when they are priced around $4.50, since mutual funds usually avoid stocks below $5.00.

I took a subscription 5 years ago when the time came to renew I was renewed automatticly,but for personal reasons i could not afford the subscription.I notified them a few weeks later and told them and they refunded my money promptly.To me this says alot about their service.It’s not only about the stock picks,it’s also about integrity.I’am now looking for a trade web site and will give them first consideration

As stock picking services go, this has to be the worst. I signed up and in less than 60 days after following all the picks provided I lost over $3000. Every pick but 2 went down dramatically with most of them hitting the recommended stop loss. Please stay away from this service, they have no idea what they’re doing.

How many picks did you enter? 2-months is nothing for a rough patch in the market when it was going sideways more or less for the 24-months before Trump’s win.

I’ve been using this service for a bit over a year now and it has yet to even come close to paying for itself. Every win is balanced against multiple losers that pull back the profits. I will not be renewing.

How did you trade it? Did you sell 66%-75% at the short-term target and trail the remaining for the extended target? My paper trade is up about 8% since August 2016.

I have tried MANY services over the years, and I have found a few that were OK. But GT is the only one I have stuck with, and for good reason! When I first started using the system in the early 2000s , I tried to outsmart the system by buying picks in aftermarket or premarket to try to get ahead, leaving me with picks that quickly reversed course and produced losses. But after I actually started following the gorillas recommendations, I have never looked back. Look-not every pick will be a winner. LOSSES HAPPEN. I have incurred MANY losers… Read More »

I have been a Gorilla Trades subscriber for 14 years. This goes pretty far back when the website looked more like a high school class project in website design. Graphics aside, if you take the time to fully understand the disciplines and tenants of the Gorilla’s ‘system’ you cannot and will not have a negative experience. I suspect that those who trash the site have failed to fully invest themselves into the Jungle rules. Discipline reigns supreme in The Jungle and while the rules are awfully simple to grasp, if you are not a disciplined trader, this is not you… Read More »

I don’t know why I hesitated in joining Gorilla Trades after my free 30 day trial. During the trial period, nearly every stock was higher within a 5 day to 2 week period. Nearly every one! Once I subscribed I tried to finesse the daily plays; wait for a bigger dip or some other excuse. This was not the right move on my part, as I would watch the stocks take off without me. The rules (for me) are now simplified: BUY when the stock engages the trigger price and add when volume confirms the price move. I have since… Read More »

I’ve been trading stocks a very long time. While I certainly don’t know everything, I can tell you that I’ve tried many different stock picking systems over the years. The Gorilla, by far, is the best stock picking system I’ve used. The daily Gorilla email is very easy to understand, and executing subsequent Gorilla stock purchases is a snap. In addition to potential stock purchases, the daily Gorilla email also contains a brief summary of potential stock buys, a Gorilla stock portfolio update, and concise commentary of the state of the market (which is actually interesting to read, unlike most… Read More »

Automated scam. The fact they hide their $499 annual price and offer free deal and more deal. Just makes it non-trust worthy. I like the Zacks Value, Growth, Momentum break down. MarketEdge is great too.

As I was interested, drawn by the Gorilla’s candor, I surveyed his options history, as listed on his site. Predicated upon the shared years of 2009-16, and after subtracting subscription and brokerage fees, four years were positive and four negative; the rough average would have yielded one $6500 per year. That number is predicated upon using $5000 a trade. If, though, one were able to increase the number of contracts, the results were more favorable, but also the draw down, which at one point hit approximately $42,000, could have forced bankruptcy. Based solely upon the transparency of the site, I… Read More »

I’ve seen nothing but mediocrity out of Zacks, so I don’t understand at all where you are coming from. GT recommended AVGO in early Jan. at around $240. I’ll leave it to you to look up where it is just 2 weeks later. His 3 stocks to own in 2019 are all up huge this month. I’ve got lifetime memberships in some fairly well known advisories and I’ll take the Gorilla over all of them anytime. I made more in a 1 month free trial then I’ve made in a year with other advisers so if you lost you’re not… Read More »

I did the 30 trial and then subscribed based on experience with the 30 day trial – I have only taken the stock picks and bought call options based on my prior experience with options. I was picky and skipped some picks for various reasons. 5 picks, 4 making money, one hitting a stop-loss of 20% today. Gains on these 4 range from 3% to 63% – average including the 20% stop loss is about 25%. I’ve held these 5 anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks. I bought all after they confirmed. Once gains and continued momentum were noted, I… Read More »

I have had nothing but success with the Gorilla. He gives me the picks, provides guidance and educates. All you have to do is manage the trade. It can’t get any simpler. One trade will easily cover the subscription.

I’ve used GT for about 9 months so far. Results with triggered and confirmed trades were fair, overall modest gains. Then I took a chance on the Option Idea of the Week: Turbo-charged gains. Of course, we’ve been in a raging bull market with generational low volatility, so how GT will fare in bear or channeling market remains to be seen (for me). Others with more experience with GT may be able to shed light on its performance during less robust times. At this point, I am a happy camper.

I’ve been a GT member for many years – over a decade – and have great confidence in his picks; he uses the cup and handle chart figure, and it works. IBD is a big proponent. I haven’t kept up with the win-loss ratio like Machine Ghost has (nice going, MG!) but I expect my return would be about the same. I do it a little differently than the Gorilla recommends – I buy the Confirmed stock, put a trailing stop loss on it,usually 7 or 8%, and let it ride, until it hits my stop, rather than when he… Read More »

What keeps me hooked is their midday and closing day update emails. Its something so small I didnt expect to have such a consistent impact on my daily routine. GT sends midday and post-day market recap emails, which keep me in tune with the day’s action without having to jump into websites and publications to gauge it myself. Im new to investing, and although a lot of the people on this thread seem to have years of experience and love the GT model, as a novice, I can attest it works at my level as well.

Gorillatrades is the best option service I have used. Their trades have resulted in a huge performance increase in my portfolio. Using their stock picks has been beneficial as well. I started on a trial and am now on a two year program. Like any investment service you must do your own homework as well and know your tolerance level. I’m very happy with Gorillatrades

I’ve invested in life time memberships with several services and I’d sell all of them for 10 cents on the dollar. They all claim great success if you follow their charts and their discipline. But after awhile, with more losers than winners, you just don’t know when to trust them. Not so with the Gorilla. I took advantage of a 30 day fre
