Stay Away
Folks, do not put any money into this. you will most likely lose it. I had this for many years and while it is entertaining the value for making any money is close to zero.

Option education and trading
If you want yo loose all your money, go ahead and subscribe to Schaeffers Investment Research, it seems than instead of having serious analysts they have anal-ysts throwng darts in order to pick their stocks. Take for instance their latest recommendations. CLR and JCP for an April option calls, both were in a downtrend and the insiders were massively selling the stocks. This is a contrarian approach and of course the options failed miserably. You ARE STILL RESPONSIBLE FOR PULLING THE TRIGGER, so do not blame them. I understand that not all recommendations will be successful, but they have lots more losers than winners. If you are a subscriber the best approach will be to run away and lose your subscription since they do not have a refund policy.

the best way to loose money
the schaeffer method is very sneaky.

spam email with offer of the offers. super discount price. 1 year subscription but for you is lifetime. etc etc

suggested trades are in loss in most cases. i think their recommendations are to take in contrarian use.

in any case don't worst your money

Don't be FOOLED
Don't be fooled by the marketing. I had Bernies premium services, payed a fortune for them and they all sucked. It's all over-extended stocks that he recommends for call buying. Pathetic. Save your money and stay away from this one.

Got Lucky ?
PROS:

Perhaps I will be the voice of dissent here, perhaps I was pretty lucky but for the longest time I have trialled many courses and systems which have not tangibly returned the cost of their initial outlay, but fortunately my experience with SIR has been different. I think I got offered a promo on their players service at $99/m and it seemed like there was nothing to loose. I traded the alerts for a while and I was pretty happy with the picks themselves but because I trade from a different timezone I was nearly always too late to get the fill at limit and my own results were inconclusive. I tried 'Volatility' for a few months but didn't enjoy the trades that I got into. When I closed off my Volatility subscription I got offered one of the 'Mega Packs'. I am pretty cynical about most ^H^H^H _ALL_ of these up sell type promotions so I asked for the performance tracks of the included strategies. Now almost invariably when I ask for this the promoter would normally say I have to sign up first and if I don't like it then I can ask for a refund, that is my normal queue to run screaming in the other direction. On this occasion though the consultant was very obliging and professional. I analyzed the track records which were consistent with my own observations and I liked what I saw. I brought that 'Mega Pack' (Elite Trader), implemented an alert system so that I got alerts to my mobile the minute they are available and started to trade it seriously.

Here's the luck: so often you can watch weeks of nothing trades go by wondering if a new system is going to work out or not, but on this occasion MY FIRST TRADE RETURNED >4 x LIFETIME SUBSCRIPTION COST IN 7 DAYS !! Good fortune I am sure but I would certainly prefer to start like that!

Since then I over 36 days I a closed out 30 of 46 trades at an average return of %36, average duration of 9 days. AvWin:%97, AvLoss:-%33, WR:%68.

I have to say I've enjoyed making more than my annual salary in the first month !

This has probably been a very fortunate start and I don't expect it will always go like this but nothing else I have used has come even close.

CONS:

A good number of the option picks have no Open Interest at the time of entry as they may be 2 or 3 month out, so the spreads may be wider than average.

The prices can move quite quickly - I guess some alerts are generated by price movement so you need to quite reactive.

I haven't failed to receive closeout instructions for any position going past -%50 but I am usually watching the position pretty hard by then and will often close at -%40, probably 3 out of 4 times that will leave me in a better position that the -%50, it too early to say overall.

The service tends to use partial closeouts more than trailing stops, I would like to answer for myself if the results could be improved with trailing stops ?

Losers offest winners considerably.
I have purchased two services from SIR and I put a limit of $750 per trade. I have been very dissappointed since probably 80% of the trades were losers. They do have some big winners, but my personal experience over the past 12 months is that the money lost exceeds the money gained by a few BIG winners. I purchased all of the recommendations with the exception of the ones I could not get into in time at their recommended price. I got into at least 90% of the recommended trades. Once you join, they tell you in the users manual that you will have far more losers than winners, but they state the losers will be cut short. They attempt to "limit" loses, but in many cases they go down so fast, you end up losing 50% or more of the money on most trades and the winners do not offset the losers and you could easily have a net loss. Their website is good and they have a lot of good training, but I cannot recommend getting into a service. You could get into a service, but papertrade first and I hope you prove me wrong.

Proably WORST advisory available
First, their advisory emails are quite unfriendly and over whelming if you were suckered into one of the big broad super trader programs. They send out MANY suggestions BUT it is nearly impossible to find the 1 or 2 followups that you might be following.

Second, I've found the quality of their advisories to be dismal at best. The followup guidance of what to do when their advice is tanking is probably the only thing worse than the initial advice.

Third, the ability to evaluate ALL their advisory ideas is virtually impossible. They display the data very well so as to obfuscate the facts.

Fourth, when some channel has Bernie on, I'd switch to another program.

I was a sucker and am beyond disappointed. Quit following their advice about a year ago, and thought I'd try again. They put up a credit spread on GMCR in mid September on an October trade. It has tanked completely and they provided NO followup, adjustments, or get out advice. AND, they've removed it from the open positions list BUT never sent any post purchase followup.

DON'T DO IT! BTW, the check marks should have a ZERO for the HATE it choice!
