Hope is all there is
The blog is for entertainment only and does not represent anything a trader is looking for.

Tim Knight has plenty of guest writers and one of his old time writers is facesincabs.

Like Tim, his guest writer facesincabs has been bearish for a very long time. Tim should be more critical with his guest writers or better write all articles himself otherwise it becomes more a joke of a blog.

Blog for entertainment purpose only
Tim Knight appears to be a kind person but his trading capabilities are lacking. He is very emotional and bias. I would not recommend to anyone following his trading approach.

Writing a book and trading are two different worlds. He certainly is better in doing other than trading.

The blog is entertaining and some sort of fun. There is a come and go on this blog and heated discussions as bears or his followers have been whacked. Surely some following him blew up their account. Their fault and not his fault as no trader should blindly follow anybody.

Most bears on this blog have disappeared.

Anybody searching for trading advice on this blog should avoid it. There are far better ones available.

I lost money on this blog, Tim no better then a coin flip
Lets go back to early 2009 when the markets were swooning and gyrating. Stocks were making incredible moves. I had no technical analysis experience so where do I turn? I turned to the Slope of Hope blog which was recommended by the ProphetCharts. I thought that since Tim was 1) a published author, 2) the creator of ProphetCharts and 3) a person with over 20 years trading the markets that I absolutely could not go wrong.

Well, lets just say I lost about 20 grand in 2009 and that was because of following and depending upon the Slope. Im very disappointed in myself for following and taking advice from that blog and learned a big lesson. However, I now have a system where I reverse Tim's picks and it seems to work more times then not. For example, Tim went very bearish (short) on EK Eastman Kodak the other day so I took the chance and went long. I gritted my teeth and bought about 20,000 shares of the stock. Then suddenly, news out about some lawsuit and it was favorable for EK. Boooyaaahhh!!! The stock suddenly launched up a point or so and I made 20 grand in a day. Had I followed Tim into the trade then I would have lost.

I have to thank Tim for the hard lessons I learned from the Slope. Those lessons are 1) when it comes to the markets the only person you can depend upon is yourself 2) Tim has been one of the greatest fades the world has seen these last few years and I have made money going against his picks&pans 3) financial blogs are more times then not just a bunch of BS and launched for some individuals interests (not your own interests)

I am honestly surprised that Mr. Knight has not received a Summons and Complaint as a result of publishing all of these atrocious picks from day to day. Oh and then there is the comments section which is nothing but drama. I have watched over the years as one trade after another blew up. I believe Mr. Knight has gone through quite a few generations of "Slopers". Every 6 months, it seems like the Slopers turn over (blew out their accounts) and are never heard from again.

There is one guy that I follow and listen to which is Gary Savage. I subscribe to his premium service and have found it of great help to my trading. He seems like the only level headed guy out there and Gary's advice has come true most of the time. Gary is very responsible unlike Tim who leads his flock down the path of account destruction.

Sorry for sounding so negative but I have strong feelings. Tim is billed as this very experienced trader, published author and (groan) hedge fund manager. However, his picks have been god awful these last few years to the point where the smart money simply fades his picks. He ambushes his followers with these picks and eventually blows them out of the game. Tim is no better then a coin flip....sometimes you are better off relying on flipping a coin then the advice on Tim's blog.

Good entertainment, trading not so good
I've followed his blog on and off and his trading doesn't seem that consistent to me. Since we don't know his trading account I can only guess, but I bet he hasn't done as well in reality. He's been massively bearish in 2009, though luckily that's changed in late 2010, he took on more neutral positions. Copying his trades isn't possible because he trades way too many tickers, like 100+.

I think his posts are good for entertainment, even though I think he's wrong most of the time he does say things with conviction. Then again that's not necesarily the right way to consistent profits. He does give out alot of trading ideas.

Some plusses and some minusses considered, I found SlopeofHope to be an average (bear) blog.

This blog is funny but nothing more...
The Slope of Hope is one of the better community oriented blogs out there. Tim is funny and seems like a nice guy. I log in every now and then for a good laugh or so. Sometimes I will throw in a comment or two as well.

While I will give 5 stars for community, I will give Tim a 1 star for just about everything else. In the description up top it says that Tim is a "hedge fund manager" and that seems to be interesting. I have followed Tim for several years and, in all that time, the only time I saw Tim ever make money was during 2008 when the indexes were falling hard. At all other times, it seems like Tim can't seem to predict market direction. In fact, I am wondering what his clients are saying and if they have not requested their money back yet. In fact, I even read somewhere once where Tim stated that 2008 was his only profitable year.

Tim started the blog in 2006 and is what you call a perma-bear. He lost in 2006 and then lost again in 2007. Finally in 2008 he got lucky and that seemed to embolden him. He received a lot of credibility and much attention from the audience. However, it wasnt brains but bears that gave Tim that edge. If Tim said in March 2009 that he thought the downturn was over and then went bullish then he would have been superman! He kept going down the super-bearish road and now it seems like he has lost all of his credibility. The blog, which used to have some great traders, is now inhabited by a much different breed of people that at times scare me.

Tim should probably stick with his strengths which is in building blogs, creating software, building online communities and such...however, as for trading, Tim should honestly call it quits. Im not sure who gave Tim some coin to manage, but I would hate to be them right now. You never see Tim too much on the blog and thats probably because he is on conference calls with the clients explaining about the losses. In fact, Tim was telling his people a few months back to "Click on the ads". For a while, Tim did not have advertisements on the site, but now is resorting to e-begging. That is a new low for Tim.

So I love it for the entertainment, but as for good market calls, education and value then steer clear. Buyer beware! ...and if someone suggested that Tim manage my money then I would say NO! NO! AND HELL NO!!!

Tim Knight isn't one to follow
Tim Knight's blog Slope of Hope isn't one to follow for serious market information. Tim Knight doesn't post anything useful himself unless you want to listen to him whine about how the market isn't going his way. He will also post a couple of charts here and there when they've made the move he was hoping for. Don't look to him for trading advice or knowledge because he won't offer any. He has ran off and deleted post by people he didn't agree with and since it is his blog he is allowed to do, but why? His strong bear bias has made him oblivious to obvious market direction and moves.

The value of his site comes from guest posters and people in the comments section. They actually offer real knowledge in trading which is what a trade blog is for.

I do own both of Tim Knight's "Chart Your Way to Profits" and use Prophet Charts for all my charting needs, but follow his blog I do not.

Battle of the Titans
Many successful traders go on Slope. They are generous with their information. They have huge egos and taunt each other. One must be careful to think for yourself and filter all information.

Real trader sentiment
If you want to listen to the media hype all of the latest and greatest - It's CNBC.

If you want to listen to real people analyze the the reality of the markets -

discuss real events, and provide real trading ideas - It's slope of hope.

Good market analysis discussions.

Tim is the man
TK runs one of the best blogs I have found. He posts great ideas and although he's a Bear he does have long ideas. He also has some of the best posters around...There are some VERY smart folks there that do not always agree with Tim but just want everyone to be successful...SOH is the BEST
