You will lose a LOT of money if you take his terrible advice
Don't even THINK of following this losers advice unless you're a masochist that gets-off on losing money, which I suspect is the case for anyone who has wrote a glowing review here. They're either a masochist or a downright liar.

He's a self-admitted nihilist and perma-bear and made what money he has selling a trading website so don't let him or anyone else tell you otherwise because it's not true. If you follow his trades, you'll see about 80% if not more of them are losers and if you call him out on them, he will publicly chastise you then ban you from he site, which is the best thing that could actually happen to you.

So there you have it, you've been warned.

what a waste of resources
Draw a line here, draw a line there.. he makes up some story as if predicts what is going to happen. Its always after the fact nonsense. he comes up head and shoulder pattern in every stock and advises people to short it. Anyway, just a bunch of non-sense mumbo jumbo. I have written down his every single trade idea last 2 month and guess what %70 of time he was wrong. Tim Knight is a good example of why majority of technicians loose money in current market. He sells membership for 39 $ a month and I really feel sorry for people who pays this amount and think this guy talks with some knowledge. But It's a fun website to see why new traders will lose money listening this kind of people.

Great short calls on individual stocks
Although Slope of Hope is intended to be a Bearish blog, there are quite a bullish posts as well. There are a handful of very good traders regularly posting useful information, mixed in with some entertainment. You can easily filter posters if you want to focus in just a few, and you can get notification emails when people post virtual trades. The TA posted daily by springheel jack is very thorough and detailed.

Now for the negative stuff.... Tim Knight is an uber bearish guy, and from what I hear these days, that's a sin against humanity. If you can manage to overlook this horrific character flaw, you can get some stellar short calls on individual stocks, that seem to work even in this no-dips-allowed bull market. I subscribe to Slope+, and I'll often take a more conservative route of selling call spreads, or buying put spreads against Tim's shorts. Some of his calls are amazing, but I'll stop the niceties there before people start to accuse me of being nice to a filthy bear.

Tim's writing style is also polished, sarcastic, and extremely entertaining.

A great mix of TA, views and trading information
I'm not certain that Investimonials is still being operated actively (with the assistance of humans) as I've tried to add my own blog here a few times over the last 18 months and my requests just disappeared into the ether. That said I thought I'd add my 2 cents here to give some better information about what I think is one of the best charting blogs out there.

Tim Knight is bearish. True story, and the bears have had a tough last few years. The next few years may be tough for bears too, but unless you're trying to follow Tim's top calls there is a lot more to Slope of Hope than that. Even Tim posts a lot of bullish charts covering a wide range of stocks and markets. One that springs to mind was his target for AAPL at 390 from last year, which he reminded us about at the low this year and pointed out that the most likely bullish reversal level for AAPL was there. Looking good at the time of writing.

I publish the guest premarket post there almost every day, covering equities, oil, forex and bonds among other charts I post less regularly. I have a strong sympathy for the bears but try hard not to let that affect my analysis, and I am right about market direction across these various markets a lot of the time with a very strong track record including many genuinely remarkable long and short calls, a sample of which were BP in 2010, RIMM (now BBRY) in 2011, Yen in 2012, SPX high May 2013, SPX low June 2013 and so on.

There are other regular guest posters too, some bullish and some bearish, and between all of us we provide one of the best information resources for chartists on the internet. Slope of Hope has many bearish readers and commenters but a lot of bullish ones too, so there are detailed analyses of both sides of the bull/bear case.

If you're looking for a blog that just presents the bull case, or if you find contradictory views too confusing, then Slope of Hope may not be the blog for you. If you are interested in charting and high quality charting content, then it is genuinely one of the best places you can go to learn more about charting methods with a quality of content that often puts professional analysts to shame.

I'm a little stung that none of the slope reviews have mentioned my work there but there haven't been many reviews in recent years, and those reviews that have been posted here seem to have been posted by disaffected former readers of the blog. This review is to help set the record straight.

Slope of Hope is purely for marketing
Tim Knight is constantly short and claims to be between 65-75% short every day. He has done so since past years and is always bearish. It is obvious to any trader that Tim Knight would have lost a bundle if he really executes his bearish views.

Tim Knight hardly writes about his trades in real time nor prior his trades. His trades are always commented after the fact and end of day. During the day he searches for stocks that do have a negative day and he will post those charts on Slope of Hope.

Any reader should be aware that Tim Knight is more interested in marketing his website. He is begging for advertising clicks and lately begging for users to subscribe to his site.

If indeed his trading is profitable, he would not beg for income sources on his site.

Any user on his site questioning the trades and approach of Tim Knight will be immediately banned to avoid any negative comments that could effect his income source.

Tim Knight touts how many followers he has on Twitter being evidence that this person has a rather large Ego.

The swear words he is using in the comment section when the market goes against him and usually it does, is rather the vocabulary of an elementary school student.

I doubt that he runs a hedge fund as he advertises and if he did, he must have lost a lot of his and his clients money. There is hardly any hedge fund that has only short positions. This fact alone is proof that Tim Knight is fooling his readers pretending he is trading with real money.

Don't waste Time
This blog is a Zero Hedge knock off who always talk about apocalypse and market crash. Tim Knight keeps shorting strong sectors like gold all the way from 800 to 1800 and then starts celebrating like he is a genius when gold goes down 200. My cycle tells me to short gold at 1800 unlike Tim Knight. Tim Knight did not short banks or solar stocks or Euro at all, in last two years. Problem with him is that he thinks every chart is 2008. He needs 2008 to happen to make money in market. I think he is paper trader. I use his site as contrary indicator.

Only value in the site is Market Sniper who stopped visiting and now has his own site and Heavenskrow.

Snake Oil
Makings for a good trade are A) to know what's going on short-, medium- and long term and B) to know where the tricky s/r levels are. With this kind of knowledge a savvy trader can make money.

I don't think Slope provides any help and I don't quite understand why some guys seem to like the blog... If you're in this business to make money it's just a waste of time.

I feel sorry for this guy. He has no clue whats going on.

I would love to see how much money he looses every year. He talks with such confidence but does be so far out.

According to himseld he is always on the righ side of the move.

How to be Biased and Lose Money
I would strongly advise people to not take trading advice from this blog or its commentators. My account has taken losses following Tim Knight's trades and bearish bias. As a user of ProphetCharts, I made the mistake of believing Tim Knight was a serious and experienced market professional.

Tim is essentially a diehard permabear who manipulates charts to show his readers that we are on the verge of another crash. I think Tim serves his readers with bearish news and interpretations as it is what keeps his view count and ad clicks turning. Listening to Tim, kept me short for much of this rally. I do take responsibility.

Tim is clearly very intelligent, so I don't think he believes in the drivel he writes and instead manufactures material to suit his readers' tastes and keep them distracted from the fact that he has been consistently bearish during a 100%+ rally in all major indexes. He fans their hopes with enigmatic predictions of Dow 6000 in the future and similar dire predictions. If technicals fail him, he becomes a fundamentalist, when fundamentals fail, he becomes a currency expert, when that fails he becomes a monetary expert.

The one part I initially appreciated about Slope of Hope was Tim's honesty about his wins and losses. However, he seems to have abandoned this approach as his band of readers believe whatever he says. Its normal after an up day for Tim to talk about his longs even though the day before he will have been 90% short. Of course, on down days he will ignore his longs and talk about his shorts. He has to keep up the illusion of a successful trader or people will stop visiting his blog.

Other than Tim's deception towards readers, the other disturbing part is his glee in bad employment reports, poor corporate profits, and losses taken by others. I believe its a reflection of a broken spirit, abysmal trading record, and bad childhood and/or family life. Any day, the market is down he amateurishly taunts the bulls with vulgar language, all the while he comically claims to be a hedge fund manager in between begging readers to click ads.

Bearish Bias
This guy is way too bearish. He also has too much of an ego. Maybe a good blog if you are looking for some shorts, as he will share a huge list with you.. Great site if you know you are headed for a crash.
