I’ve been a subscriber for over two years. I’ve ridden his recommendations up, now I’m riding them way down. His newsletter write-ups are well written, and his conclusions are very well thought out. He is also wrong wrong wrong. He’s not even wrong some of the time. He’s been totally wrong for most of this year. How is that possible? He likes to use the term “in hindsight”. He talks about how his timing was a little off. No kidding. He laments how the market is not seeing what he’s seeing. Wow. That kind of arrogance will lose you a lot of money. The only thing sadder is that I keep investing in his picks! I figure that the market has to reward him some time!

This was a disaster in 2009.

I was a new subscriber to strategic short report. my first trade that Amoss recommended was to buy WFSL puts. I lost 100 percent of my money. My second trade he recommended was to buy BMO puts. I lost all my money again. This guy has a terrible track recored. He is totally guessing when he advises his subscribers to buy or sell. I lost nearly $9,000.00. I can tell you from experience to totally avoid this guy.

I tried this service last year for about 4 or 5 months, and finally quit because following it’s recommendations was causing me to lose too much money. In retrospect, had I done exactly opposite of it’s advice, I would’ve made a decent profit. But Dan’s reasoning to his specific recommendations sound so convincing, it would’ve been a very difficult thing to do. As stated, the author does come across as being astute and knowledgeable. But the bottom line is how it performs. I was very disappointed in the results, as I lost quite a few thousands of dollars following it’s recommended option plays. As such, there is no way I could recommend it to anyone. Their customer service was OK. They pro-rated my subscription and sent back the cost of my unused portion.

I was initially very enthusiastic – the first recommendation I bought was Lehman puts! It’s been largely downhill since then. My record on closed positions is a 13.9% loss; there have been some winners over the last year or so, but more losers. I haven’t followed all of his recommendations, but my impression (which may or may not be accurate) is that there are still a lot of losers. Amoss writes well and clearly, and the material is detailed, interesting, and well-written. The problem is that even when stocks are clearly overvalued, such overvaluation has the bad habit of persisting beyond an option’s expiration. I agree with the writer who said that often you need to act quickly (same half of the day) to get in at the recommended price.

Looks like everybody has bailed on this guy. I have finally given up on him and canceled the subscription. As others have noted, he is a prolific “talker” and gives you loads of research smoke. His record for the past 2 years has been absolutely horrendous. I don’t know how you keep a job with the record he has compiled in 2009-2010, and so far this year. I hit big on his Lehman Bros. reco a couple of years ago and made some good money on his GDX call, but who needs to pay him to trade gold? He refuses to face what is going on in the market in spite of his brilliance and research. He ignores the trend and the sentiment. I am a contrarian myself but you have to face reality at some point. Beware of his letter. I think the portfolio currently has only a couple of picks that are “up”. Many are down terribly. I still have one left, and it is down 97%. Stay clear of this guy.
