Have been with these guys for 13 months and itโ€™s truly a breath of fresh air to work with a service that does not use hype or force you to buy other services. This is one of the best services I have subscribed to in my 20 years of investing. Their examination of the machinations of the market and human behavior are superb and enlightening

I posted a review a few days ago but it did not show up, maybe I did something wrong. So this is my second attempt and its going to be much shorter.

Overall I am satisfied with the service; they are low on hype and focus on trends. I enjoy their pyschological take on the market and while I fared well to date, I am curious to see how the handle the current downturn. Will post another review in a few weeks

I started a trial subscription and then as I liked the service I let it convert to an annual subscription. 25 days into the annual subscription, I landed a new job which left me with almost no time to trade. I would be out in the field in remote areas for days. I asked Mabel if I could cancel the subscription and if she could issue a pro-rated refund. I did not mind paying a fee as I had already made several grand from some of their recommendations. To my surprise she refunded the entire subscription instead of charging me… Read More ยป

Stunning customer service; everything everyone has stated about their customer service is true. Asked numerous questions, all of which recieved well researched and most importantly, polite responses. Secondly, the analysis is spot on. I learned more about how the markets operate and the mass mind-set in three months than I have over the past ten years after paying thousands in subscription fees. Lastly, I locked in some great gains 450% on AMKR calls, almost 200% in XEL calls, 110% in HOLX calls, 50% in DHI calls. On stocks I up over 30% on the following stocks, IPHI, RGEN, JVA, MXL,… Read More ยป

Question if you don’t mind answering. I see you did calls on some of your picks. Does the newsletter recommend that or just the stock and you opted to do calls? I would like to find a newsletter that did recommend calls and puts as opposed to picking a stock.

They reccommend options for now the focus is on calls as the Trend is postive according to their trend indicator. But there is a section where they discuss about how subscribers can opt to also purchase options on the stocks they recommend; I have purchased options they have recommeded and I have bought calls on stocks they recommended, overall both strategies worked out well for me. I would suggest that you get used to their trading style. To be on the safe side I allocated almost three months in total, one month to learn and two montns to paper trade,… Read More ยป

They deal with Stocks, Options and ETF’s. For now the focus is on calls and i agree with the stance, makes no sense to focus on puts when the market is still in a bullish mode and there more long options then shorting options

This review has been in the making for a long time; finally found the time to type it. I canโ€™t recall having a more pleasant and satisfying experience than the one I had with Tactical Investor. My first interaction with them was towards the end of 2015. I remember distinctly that Sol Palha stated a Trump win from a financial stand point of view would be a fantastic development and that if the markets tanked we should jump in and buy. Boy was that a great call, but I was too cynical to jump in; like the rest of the… Read More ยป

Good to see many favorable reviews here.

Do they also have stock picks (like Motley fool Stock advisor) or just Call and Put options? I have never traded options and am worried about the learning curve.

Options is a small part of this service. They also focus on Stocks and ETFS. I tend to put more money in stocks and ETFS and only use profits to play with options.

After going thoroughly over their trading methodology, it is both sound and makes sense. One aspect of their trading style is both simple and genius at the same time. For example, dividing the total sum of the money to be invested in a given position into three smaller lots and allocating each lot at different intervals. The beauty is that each entry price is calculated based on a risk to reward model that takes the volatility of the indvidual stock into consideration. As for the results, I am satisfied with them; otherwise, I would not be leaving a review. FYI,… Read More ยป

Astouding insights into how the masses operate and why they never change their tactics. If you want to understand Market Psychology this probably one of the best newsletters in the industry. I also found the service to be very resonably priced when all the services they offer are combined; Stocks, Options, and ETF’s. used to pay for these services separaterly before. Very happy with the returns so far.

Member for 6 months and very satisfied with my results. I invested in the ETF’s and some options. My average gain on my options are 80% and on the three ETFS i jumped into i closed TQQQ out for a gain of 50%, UPW for a gain of 20%. I am long UGE which is showing a small gain at the moment. Waiting for a bit longer before I get into stocks as I missed some entry points in Jan and Feb due to trying to trying to get a better price

After 4 months I can state that I am happy with the results. Their stock selection process and the way the commit funds to a positions are both novel and impressive

This newsletter and Travis’s Stock Gumshoe newsletter are all I use. I am happy with the service so far 5 months into. If anything changes I will post a follow update. I would suggest two things, taking the trial subscription; this is a cheap way to test if the service is for you. Secondly, make sure you read all the articles suggested in the welcome email. It will greatly speed up the learning process by a factor of 2-3.

Quite simple to use after the initial learning curve. This service is useful if you read the guides they provide you, if not, you might run into issues.

Usually if you subscribe to a free service you usually get hammered with offers every week. I tried their free service for roughly 15 months and was generally impressed with their work. I signed up for the premium service about 7 weeks ago, and the experience so far has been pleasant.

Short and Sweet.

I am loyal to services that are low on hype and deliver results. I have been a subscriber for almost two years indicating that I am satisfied with their service.

What a lovely experience; customer service is excellent as the previous reviewers stated. I needed to cancel my subscription due to changes which will affect my access to the markets for the next 3 months. The process was smooth, simple and easy. This is what I expect from every merchant i deal with but most merchants fail to deliver. I can guarantee that I will be back the moment my circumstances change. I have nothing to add on the overall service other than their calls are good, and their market insights are extraordinary.

One day, I am going to write a full article on Medium about Sol Palha, this mythical figure of investment. But for now, this will have to do. During the last quarter of 2018, I wasnโ€™t doing so well with the stock market, so I decided to get some help. I came across an article by Sol and it really caught my attention. I had never subscribed to any financial (or other) advice service but I decided to give it try, simply because the article was so illuminating. Every few weeks I would get an update from Sol and Tactical… Read More ยป

Been a subscriber for 4 months and while all the other newsletters I pay for were talking about all sorts of negative scenarios, Sol and his group focussed on stating that we should embrace the pullback. I purchased several futures contracts on the Dow and SPX on the 7th of August and in just one day walked with a small fortune. I also purchased many of the stocks on their list and many of them are already showing small gains just after one day of holding them. I love the way they use risk to reward models to calculate entry… Read More ยป

A subscriber for 6 months. 80% of the stock picks are winners. I closed two positions out for gains of 60% and 40%. On the options wins of over 100%, one lost of 80%, one loss of 40%, 3 open positions, average gain 40%. Impressed with the results so far and have made enough to pay for over 10 years worth of subscriptions.

The service is great and when you combine the ETF trend trader, the market update, and the options service, this is one of the cheapest and best services out there. I have managed to save 900 a year on subscriptions alone by joining this service. I am also very happy with the results over 75% of my stocks are in the black and several are at the break even point. I expect them to trend upwards fro here so my win ratio should improve even more.

Subscriber for 9 months. Very good customer service, with a fast response rate. Performance is what i expected which was good after reading 9 articles on their site. The best part that I liked was that they teach you to invest as opposed to just leaving you in the dark. So you can follow their picks or you the data they provide to create your own list of stocks.

The personal touch surprised me. I am a novice trader probably as green as they come. Mabel prepared a document for me with a list of videos to watch that covered topics like how to buy a stock, how to use stops, limit stops, how to get into options, etc. She also provided me with a list of books to read and went out of her way to find free PDF versions of some of them, one that comes to mind is popular delusions by Charles Mackey. I am here for just a month so has not traded anything yet… Read More ยป
