I subscribed to the letter in 2007 thru part of 2008. I could have done just as well at a slot machine in Las Vegas. Like every company in that time frame the picks were losers and they didn’t have the courtesey to say watch out the market is crashing. I saved my ass by unloading everything and buying gold and silver. I’m up at least 7% with sell stops in to protect my profits. The stock market is a big casino with a bunch of suckers throughing thier money away on some tease. If the investors are going to… Read More »

This association does sound like the stock market. At least, the market gives you indisputable information up front.

My overall rating is that this was about the worst newsletter I have ever used. I lost money on every recommendation and never renewed. It was the most consistent newsletter as I never made any profits. The most frustrating part was that I had been using stop-losses to protect capital. The Money Map did not use any type of protection because of the inherent volatility of their recommendations. Don’t waste your money on this.

I bought the $8K package deal with all of Keith’s newsletters as well as many other of the Oxford Club’s trading newsletters and it seems Keith writes 4 of the newsletters but concentrates his efforts on 2. His best newsletters are the New China Trader which he travels to China for so that takes time out of the other newsletters and his effort is also put into the Geiger Index. He neglects the other 2 newleteers- Money Map Press and Time Trader Pro. If you get this membership, ignore these 2 and favor the Geiger Index and New China Trader.… Read More »

I have been using the service for about a year. Several of the recommendations have done well for me and my clients. I research their recommendations in other reference services before buying them. I use much tighter stop losses than they recommend, and move the stops up as the share prices increase. None of the recommendations has been a home run, unlike the claims in their ad. Moreover, what I particularly don’t like about the Money Map Report is that they don’t list both the current price and the price when they first recommended the security in their monthly report.… Read More »

I think that’s pretty well true of almost any newsletter editor, they all tacitly endorse these marketing letters, since their signatures are usually at the bottom, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t have more thoughtful things to say elsewhere.

That blog, by the way, is absolutely there for marketing, too — more subtle, sure, but every customer needs a slightly different approach. Navellier is certainly a great marketer of himself, though with a bit less bombast than some.

I agree with your assessment on thee Money Map Report Jim. That was my subscription also . I will take decent return that is steady over massive losses myself. All the hype B.S. and teaser drove me nuts . Then I discovered stock Gumshoe
I love this place.

I subscribed to this newsletter for 1 year and found it to be consistently wrong about everything. I pulled the plug after finding that the advice was not well-grounded. They market themselves as having that very special insight and technique for making accurate forecasts, but this is bunk. After following their recommendations for about 8 months, I got the feeling I was buying things that they were trying to dump off on unknowing investors. I sold out of their stocks and was able to save some money without going bust. I still hold one of their stocks – MTU. When… Read More »

I would exchange this service for the New China Trader as most of Keith’s energy is spent on that service. Keith at least goes to China to see the trends there. However, he is only one person and neglects this newsletter so I stopped following this one in the Oxford Club package in favor of the New China Trader. I have had success with New China Trader but zero success with this one. Don’t waste your time or money on Money Map report as Keith doesn’t either.

I FIRST HEARD ABOUT THE MONEY MAP REPORT WHEN AN UNSOLICITED TEASER AD HIT MY E-MAIL. USUALLY I DUMP THIS TYPE OF STUFF. THE TEASER ABOUT OIL UNDER THE EIFFEL TOWER GOT ME CURIOUS AND I STARTED TO READ. IT WAS NOT LONG BEFORE I WAS TURNED OFF BY THE UNSUBSTANTIATED HYPE. THEY WOULD NOT EVEN MENTION THE NAME OF THE COMPANY THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT. TINY TEXAS COMPANY DID NOT CUT IT FOR ME, SO I STARTED AN E-MAIL SEARCH AND SOON FIGURED OUT THAT THE WERE TALKING ABOUT TOREADOR SO I EXPANDED MY SEARCH IN THAT DIRECTION. NO… Read More »

I have subscribed to The Money Map Report as well as many other Agora publications. This Toreador pick is not typical of their reco’s; it is a speculative play as Travis points out. Travis, as ususl provides excellent sleuthing, and equally appreciated writeups on these teasers. On TRGL, I think the potential reward is worth the risk- they have secured a lot of property in this Paris Basin, and accomplished that before “going public”. They have sold their other assets and are going “all in” themselves. Here in the US shale oil is an old story too, and it is… Read More »

Keith Fitz-Gerald’s new book Fiscal Hangover is very worthwhile reading. I’d highly recommend it for a general economic perspective of US debt, with focus on the growing role of various developing countries. I’ve just subscribed to the MMR newsletter but haven’t received a hard copy/electronic access yet, so I cannot express an opinion about this current newsletter. I subscribed for follow-up to points in his book. Some years ago I subscribed to a different newsletter he was writing at the time (since discontinued) and found it well-grounded and useful reading. I’ve heard him speak at several investment conferences and I… Read More »

Green began tracking this portfolio in the Oxford Club newsletter in April 2003.

No need to. I set up a model portfolio on April 13th 2008 with “imaginary money” – $402,000 – divided as it stated. Yesterday it lost $12,000 with only one Fund with a gain. Overall it’s worth $348,000 now.
Of course, Funds pay dividends and reinvest to buy more shares at the lower price, but I have no way to set that model up. Hope this helps.

Overall, I made it 3 stars because I am still very new to MMR. I can say, however, that it is at least reasonably worth the money. I have had MMR for only 4 months now, and I made back the subscription price in only 3 weeks with one trade suggested in the publication. I only had $2500 to invest, so after fees and costs, that worked out to a significant trade bump. While I don’t follow most suggestions (since I have such small funds), it was important to make back the subscription price (after fees) before I considered it… Read More »

Eiffel Tower play is a lot of hype! As for oil under the Eiffel Tower who knows? The closest oil and gas lease they have is about 30 miles from the Eiffel Tower! They will need to secure some leases that are closer, because with horizontal drilling you can not reach out that distance. They will need to join with another company to fund the high cost of horizontal drilling and completion. I have not been impressed with this subscription.

Be careful when options trading; it requires a strong stomach and attention but they can be used as a great hedge to large positions. I like the spreads myself when going long but in this market often long is wrong.

Oil is composed of chains of carbon with hydrogen attached called hydrocarbons. It only comes from organic material that has broken down. We can eventually run out of it but perhaps not before we have seriously harmed our atmosphere.

Seems like the writer(s) are just going through the motions, just recycling ideas from some of their other formats–repackaging for the sake of more subscriptions. No pro-rata refund is given if you cancel early since they have a 45 day “trial period”. Spend your money elsewhere!!

Iceland is left with almost no economy when financial services disappear — it’s going to be an ugly time, I wouldn’t bet on it. And there were plenty of newsletter editors promising great things from bank accounts yielding 25% last year — most of those were Icelandic accounts or CDs, and I imagine that lots of those folks are right now trying to figure out if they’ll ever get their money back. As we’ve all learned, being down doesn’t mean it can’t go down further. I have no particular insight into Iceland, you may well be right, but going back… Read More »
