Does anyone have any experience with this service? I have signed up and I’m in my 30 day trial.

It’s good value for the cost. You have realize with computer generated info, it will say buy up the peak down turn and sell on down to the turn up. MTS tries to modify this by saying don’t buy or sell on extremes. Some the info is not up to date. For months I had a stock that spit 3 for 1 . They called in a down turn. I emailed about it but they never corrected it. However it’s okay most of the time. It covers the main features of VectorVest at 1/4 the price including US and Canadian… Read More »

I AM ALSO LOOKING FOR REVIEWS ON THIS BEFORE I BUY. HOW ARE YOU LIKING IT?

I have been using Market Trend Signal (MTS) for 2 months to make decisions on my stock trading. I got my money back ($US99) in 4 days. I don’t see how anyone can lose money using it.

Technically easy to use, and follows trends of all individual stocks. Initially I had a learning curve as I converted my thinking from fundamental trading to trend trading. Once I was comfortable with trend trading I began doing well. I am getting about 7% annual gain, even in down markets. I do no short trades, only long.

That’s odd. I’ve been using the service for several years and have never seen a “model portfolio” and they are quick to tell you they provide you with screening tools. They do not make recommendations. Either you are confusing MTS with another service or you are slamming them without ever seeing their service. They are not a stock recommendation service. Never was.

Ron: Does MTS tell you when to sell? That’s equally important. If not, how do you know when to sell a stock?

Market Trend Signal (MTS) means being plugged into a financial SuperComputer. Good newsletters speculate on a few picks from a handful of advisers. For $99/yr. MTS provides 24/7 access to scores of new hold-to-buy/new buys daily. The model portfolio isn’t meant for stock picks (that’s what the Muscle Stocks/ETF’s and Stock Screener are for); it’s a portfolio management template. If you’ve been buying long since July, Phil, you’ve been caught in the Bear and, like many, probably been burnt. During this period MTS has advised prudence, and building up cash reserves. All Stock Gumshoe readers know that education precedes gain.… Read More »

Im new to trading. This system sounds good and Im still learning. Are you still using it and have you made more money? I noticed that the comments was few years ago. Thanks.

Or perhaps he simply signed up and invested in something based upon a little green dot that says “buy” under it. Big mistake. You need to use ALL the tools and learn from the videos how to use the service. I’m not wealthy because of their picks but I have a win to lose ratio of about 85% win to 15% loss using their service. I’m pretty darned happy. But in the beginning I did lose a bit of money by having been to lazy to watch the videos and learn how to use ALL THE TOOLS before buying a… Read More »

You sell when the trend changes direction or goes into consolidation mode.

I signed up for a free trial and I appreciated the opportunity to try it out. If you look through trades in the model portfolio you will note that they loose substantial percentages on many trades. My advice: If you use this service to set entry points…set stops. Don’t wait for a sell. Sell signals seem to come after the stock as dropped substantially, often near bottoms. Despite their claims, they often sell (in the model portfolio) without a confirmed sell signal and miss a lot of upside. If you don’t have a lot of experience, you may want to… Read More »

I agree with John. However their charts are useful. In the search if you put in their recommendations you get no stocks that meet their criteria. Even if you reduce the requirements considerably you still get none or few stocks. I have pointed this out to them an d they said they would have their soft ware people look into it. Also if you have a low volume stock that does not trade every day it show up as zero value in your portfolio. If you change your stops they go back to the original number when you log in… Read More »

First the positive: A novice can be overwhelmed quickly with generous category choices. But do not be deceived by their buy signals. You need to do some extra research on the individual stocks you favor, as well as the markets before buying. Forget Trends University if you value your money, and seek your education elsewhere. TU lulls you into a false sense of security along with their signals. To say that their signals lag is an grand understatement, and they remind me of a driver that’s asleep at the wheel. I cannot be more emphatic: don’t take any BUY signal… Read More »

I have studied many strategies and the trend trading makes the most sense to me. They said that in a stock market, all of the people are bidding, like any auction. They say you don’t have to pour over all of the financials, news and other noise from millions of sources. Everybody’s theory, system etc is all boiled down into one simple thing – THE PRICE. When the price is trending, it is a pretty sure bet that trend, up or down will continue. Their service allows me to look at any stocks and also those that they put up… Read More »

Howard: Is it better to set your own stocks, rather than waiting for a sell signal? If so, how do you determine where to set a stop. Commodities are a lot more volatile than blue chips, and certainly need much larger stops. Is waiting for their buy and sell signals a losing strategy?

How accurate is the trend signal?

I subscribed to MTS for a year, and never found it helpful. I thought maybe it was just me, but I see other people also saying calls were very trailing. The model portfolio is certainly nothing to follow-you could buy and hold SPY and do better. And they (prudently?) cash out portfolio if market is thought to move down. I probably could have made money from it if I worked it. There is a news feed with it, and a lot of stocks I looked at just didn’t seem right. I did get a nice free REAL book, ” Trend… Read More »

I recently critisized Market Trend Signal for being of little use to me but now I give their customer service top marks. When I cancelled my subscription over the phone MTS complied with my request right away and I got a full refund and prompt email confirmation.

I’m new to all this, and although I can’t offer a rating for Market Trend Signal I can offer one for Gumshoe: A million (make that Billion) thanks for saving me more than once. Because I am new to it all I’m looking into a lot of things, and the best THING so far has been Gumshoe. In fact, i’m starting to feel a little guilty getting what I do for free. ( Yeah, you’ll probably have my money soon…but i’ll feel damn good about giving it to ya. ) Can’t say thanks enough.

Agree wholeheartedly, significant profits coming already from weeding out the scams (whole or part). The search engine is fabulous, just type in a name of a prospective (or not)scam artist and there you go. Excuse me, can’t help myself for giving newbies some advise on the investing subject: being in it for 10-11 years ranging from fabulous success, 45% in 09 in my (Canadian) portfolio, to a lesser 4.8% average over the last 6 years ( still outperforming Mr. Market, solidly based on dividends, overall average performance 12.8 % or 3. 76 times ROI over 11 years).In my ( or… Read More »

MTS can be of great value, particularly in combination with fundamental analysis. Trend analysis is more than just looking at zig-zag lines and guessing. Understanding statistical analysis principals and interpreting charts can make MTS invaluable in knowing WHEN to buy. Understanding back testing (another MTS tool) will help increase the odds of a stock performing as desired – or knowing the odds are against it (what NOT to buy). The more you learn, the more powerful you will find MTS to be.
