I am on a webinar right now and it is being offerred for $1899 with some lifetime benefits included. It seems like a tight group. You actuallh have to apply and be accepted.

He accepts anyone with more than 25k to trade preferably, but application process seems more like a marketing technique. Yes, MRTV it’s the same guy. Buyer beware.

Just beware…. I bought it for $5000, and became part of Portfolio Boss Facebook Group. It was part of the package. I had an issue with Portfolio Boss… brought it up Customer Service. They weren’t addressing it to my satisfaction, and then summarily kicked me out of their Facebook group without warning. Watch out.

Beware of Portfolio Boss, not so much because of the program but because Dan Murphy was subject to a SEC Cease and Desist order on 2001. See: http://www.sec.gov/litigation/admin/34-44881.htm He may be okay these days but some of his claims for Portfolio Boss seem spurious such as having back tested it to 1929. Most of the stocks he mentions in the webinar did not exist that far back. An additional point to think about is that the webinar is a very basic intro and sales pitch that it seems unlikely would have current users and yet there were several on that… Read more »

Has anyone actually used the tool and made profit? Is it simply a scam? That’s what it seems to me…

Paid $100 for what I thought was a training session . It was more or less an infomercial for Portfolio Boss. I recently gave my son a lecture “if it sounds too good to be true…….” Yah, I think I’ll take my own advice. This guy is going to make a lot of money, just not in the stock market.

I attended a webinar by this guy yesterday, where he talked of a genius system he has developed using government spy data … the system will tell you when the market flips from bull to bear, and vice versa, and then you need to buy one of two financial instruments. He won’t tell subscribers what data or how his system is making the money… he’ll just tell you “bear”, “bull.”. LOL!

I bought Portfolio Boss on an annual lease for $1997. I did it on the basis that I was protected by a 100% 90 day guarantee. I am trying to get my money back after about 40 days and am getting no response to my emails.

I bought Portfolio Boss on an annual lease for $1997 in mid Nov 2015. I did it on the basis that I was protected by a 100% 90 day guarantee. Trying to get my money back after about 40 days and getting no response to emails. Starting to leave messages on their phone. When I did the purchase I was told It was a one time discount off the price of $5000 for the Portfolio Boss for $1997. Did not realize until saw the confirming email that it was a one year lease at $2500 with a $503 discount or… Read more »

Okay, under $5 is not difficult to find. Start with IBD Weekly and/or WSJ Saturday home delivery issue. Look through their various list. It doesn’t take a lot of time because single digit dollar stocks stick out like a sore thumb. Then check price, under $5, then apply your own acceptance rules; PEG, P/E, etc. Yes, under $5 appear even WSJ Biggest 1000, IBD REITs list & other list. Then, do due diligence, research & apply your trading criteria. Stick your rules, wavering could producer losses. Any good brokerage charting have screeners; build your own to your under $5 criteria… Read more »

Dan Murphy is a smart guy and he’s developed some very good trading strategies backed by a lot of backtesting data. These are the types of strategies I like: simple, not over-trading, easy to trade and can be backed up by real data. It’s up to you whether you want to spend the money on PB…..I recommend you read some of his free reports (Relaxed Investor) and decide for yourself. I’ve been trading the strategies for over 2 years now and they’re profitable. He has a lot of subscribers now so he needs to beef up his customer support. That… Read more »

Dan Murphy has often referred to his team over the years. The SEC referred to him as a 1 man band. I now understand he has a contract programmer and a part time girl Friday. He tends to over promise and under deliver. The only one making any money is Dan Murphy.

Dan Murphy sent out a sell everything message about 2 months ago. The bull market is still intact and does not show any warning signs at this stage. After paying big bucks to Dan Murphy I believe he is a snake oil salesman.

I tried Portfolio Boss. I like the basic idea behind Portfolio Boss. However, perhaps due to the timing of the situation, the great gains shown on their chart seems to go negative during my trail period. I decided not to keep the product well within the trail period. They refused to refund the money. I tried to communicate with them several times with no success. From my perspective the outfit is a scam. Dan Murphy is not to be trusted. Enough said.

I own Unite Portfolio Boss and its an excellent trading system. Dan Murphy and his staff/team have designed a terrific trading program which really helps the serious trader make good choices and the results are greater profits and less losses

Dear Fellow Stock Gumshoers, Since my last major post here 2 years ago, I have only received two mailings for Portfolio Boss. When I look at PB, I ballpark it was combination of moving averages with indicators. These could be very possible STO, RSI & MACD, these are the 3 most popular used indicators. In reviewing the current sales pitches posted herein for a ton of money, about $2000, and having seen many others in the same arena of big up front pay, the simple answer don’t. Worst are the lifetime offers. Unless you really know the company like I… Read more »

Have you ACTUALLY tried and properly evaluated the software, or is this just a general essay on how to find red flags?

Dave

Reading through these reviews is somewhat frustrating. Most of the people that post haven’t even tried the software and are posting disconnected opinions that are unrelated to the actual software. Some of these non-sensical, unqualified evaluations are very long too. Thanks for NOT helping. Has anyone ACTUALLY used the software and evaluated it properly, what is your feedback?

Dan Murphy recently came out with a new Portfolio Boss promotion. You get 1 week free trial and then they ask for a little under $1,000 for the first 6 months. At first, I was quite impressed with the software. What they provide is a nice back-testing tool that makes it easy to design and test your own trading strategies. Their tool also comes with Murphy’s propriety SMI (Smart Money Indicator) Using this indicator, I was able to construct portfolios that backtested very well, with minimal (10%) drawdown and over 15% annual return. I was a button-press away from signing… Read more »

Ok, well they came back with a 1-year offer for under $1000 and a 30-day cancellation offer. This time, I went for it. After some more experimentation, I’ve found some strategies that can do Ok without the SMI. The tool itself seems fairly useful for backtesting for multiple years and some of the data sets that come with it go back to the early ’90s. Are there other tools that give this kind of long-term backtest capability? The jury’s still out, but I’ve still got my cancellation option.
