OK for the newbie... no more
Became a member a few months back for the second time. The first time was many years ago. I did not make any dough back then and did not know tech analysis either.

One of the only advantages of his service is that he sends you a quick 7-10 minutes breakdown of the pre-market based on the action in the futures market. Nothing deep there. Once you have seen it 6-7 times, you know the recipe.

One of the strength is that he does tell you to use stops and tells you where to put them.

One of the problems with his newsletter is that he takes very few trades and will often ask you to take 1/2 of the plate after micro gains of 2-3% only... Then you let the rest run. If you throw $50 or $100K at his suggestion and you do it several times a year, that's not bad as you are out of the market most of the time. So for the older folks that need to stay safe, it's not a bad game plan.

That being said, several of his few picks will also flop and turn into a 3% loss or a bit more.

One thing I have noticed is that he likes to pick up bottom or anticipate pivot... which is not easy.

This means that he is often early. My recommendation is that when he recommend a new pick, wait a few days before jumping in, especially if the uptrend is not confirmed. There is a good chance his pick will get lower. Then take your chance and you might be good for a nice little trade.

If you are into more detailed chart analysis a guy like Dan FItzpatrick blows this one out of the water big time... though Dan is quite a bit into the momo stocks like those on investors daily.

Bottom line, I would recommend this one to folks who want to play very safe or newbies who can't afford to gamble too much + my advice to them is that often waiting a few days will help your returns as Chris can be a bit early, though he might be right.

Not many trades but daily video is educational and accurate
Chris does a really great job with his daily video analysis. They are educational and he calls many of the intraday moves before they happen each session. He does trade much but his forecasts help me with my own trades in a big way. $59 a month is not cheap compared to other newsletters that trade a lot more, but its worth it to me.

Save your money and get some books
Firstly, in terms of the content, it's sometimes helpful, (another opinion on the market) but not anywhere near worth the money charged, it's commentary mostly, and there's plenty of similar free advice available, your broker may even provide it daily

Secondly, and someone mentioned the fact below, they auto bill you (I was on the yearly cycle, I stopped watching the commentary after about 3 months and forgot I had a membership, it was THAT riveting) they don't give you any notice or warning before they re bill you, and they claim no refunds, so I had $497 taken from my credit card (that was a "pleasant" surprise a month before Christmas) what they fail to mention though is that the Canadian Consumer protection act 2002 applies, you should be given "at least 30 days, but not more than 90 days notice" when they wish to bill you, you also have a "cooling off" period, 15 days I think, in which time you can send them a letter, stating your wish to exercise this right, they have 15 days to refund you, just in case anyone else gets stung

The most telling thing of all though is that the disclaimer states the information provided is for "educational purposes only" and "should not be construed as financial advice", so bottom line, if you want to be able to trade, invest the cash in books, take your time, and learn how to trade the market, if you don't want to do this, leave your money in the hands of an investment professional, who is accredited and registered with some financial body

Lowrisk, easy to manage, educational; perfect for all levels
In his book, Mark Minervini says "The Achilles' heel of most gamblers and speculators is the desire to play every hand, a common human weakness that allows impatience to override good judgment"

I have been trading since 2008, and I have read 48 books (yes I have a list) on trading and investing. While I still consider myself a student of the markets and far from an expert, I do believe I have some authority.

Chris doesn't trade as much as others; he's actually in cash a lot of the time. That's because he only enters trades when he has conviction and can see a favorable risk to reward ratio.

He's not always right. No one is. I am amused by some of the reviewers being displeased that he may get a few wrong trades in a row.

The important thing is that he effectively manages his downside, and when he is right, the winning trades are much larger than the losers. This makes his strategy very effective and even more important; very profitable! For the limited amount of risk he takes, his returns are truly impressive.

While I often perform my own analysis and have different time frames then Chris, I always am cautious when my analysis conflicts with Chris's. I consider Chris's outlooks my "sober second thought", and I am always interested in his market outlooks.

Whether you're just looking for a service to enter trades, or you also want to learn, as someone who has been following Chris for a few years now, I can tell you that Chris's service is extremely valuable.

fluff no substance
His previews sound good but that's about it. He hedges on both sides and in the end you are left with nothing actionable.

Ask him for his real track record. I.e. ask him for his brokerage statement.

He will not produce it. Enough said.

I always ask before I try a service.

This guy for instance is real (verified live trades):

The commentary was somewhat worthwhile...
I signed up because Chris ran a special, and the free weekly commentary I read seemed fresh and accurate. From there, I don't know what happened. When reading it daily, the commentary seemed stale and indecisive. The trade recommendations I took were ALL losers. There were, in fact, 2 winning trades that I didn't participate in, and several suggestions/ comments throughtout the year that Chris later seemed to boast that he "called" (but never issued formal recommendations).

Overall the commentary was interesting, in that I picked up a few thoughts that I wouldn't have gotten elsewhere. I disliked the daily videos, as I don't have 20 minutes to dedicate daily to information that I could otherwise skim. If you're a spelling and/or grammar nut, you'll be appalled at the written portions of the newsletter. At the end of the day, I don't think it justified even the reduced price.

I cancelled on the second to last day of my subscription. After auto-renewing me anyhow, they graciously offered to refund the auto-renewal, minus their PayPal fees. Upon reflecting, it's a good strategy to cut your losers and let your winners ride.

They silently auto renew your membership
I recently found out the hard way that they silently auto renew your subscription here. It is written in their terms and conditions that they will auto renew. That is not really where my problem is. The problem is they are sneaky about it, since there is no emailed receipt when it happens or notice before it happens.

Also they offer no refunds at all, so I just payed over half a grand for another year of market commentary.

At the end of the day this is about customer service, and if that is what you want this news letter is not going to give it - it says so right in their Terms and Conditions.

Very disappointed in what he promises to his customers
I signed up to TheGoldAndOilGuy.com to take trades and profit from them. What I learned over time is that it is just like going to a baseball game and listening to the annnouncer give his minute by minute play of the game. Duuh! I can do that all by myself so who needs this website in the first place? Yes, he did have a few good trades here and there but none of them were in Gold or OIl which is what his website is supposed to be specializing in. In summary, I am very dissapointed with this website and the level of service Chris provided me with. HW/NYC

Unbelieveable!!!
I don't normally write reviews, but felt I had to after the most recent advice.

So Chris is feeling upset and emotional for missing out on the big dip, so he's really keen on loading up on a short so he doesn't get caught out next time. So he advises people to open a short with a stop 3% away. Fair enough, he's giving a recommendation based on his gut feeling, even though it kinda feels like he's partly basing this on emotion. But still, he tells people to put in a small amount because it's not that great a trade.

When the ECB spoke and announced that they'll do whatever it takes to save the euro, you'd have thought Chris would realise how big an impact this would have on the markets. Even though he might have been sceptical and not have advised on longs at that point, he should've at least known that shorts are a bad idea. But no, he held on.

The rally continues, and now the S&P is hovering close to our stops. Chris removes his stops because he still like the trade. So understandably, his followers would remove stops and continue to follow his advice. S&P rallies some more, and he doubles up on his position, only for the reason that S&P has gone up about 20 points from when he opened it so that's when he adds to his position.

The funny thing is, last Thursday he was predicting that S&|P will rally on Friday, and then gap up on Monday. SO BASICALLY HE WAS SAYING THAT THE TRADER IN HIM WAS SAYING S&P WOULD RALLY FOR AT LEAST 2 MORE DAYS, YET INSTEAD OF CLOSING HIS SHORT, HE DOUBLED UP ON IT!!!

And now he's changed his stops so that they're 100 points away on the S&P from where his average position is from. Can you imagine it - a 100 point stop!!!! I usually trade the Dow, and that would be the equivalent of roughly a 1,000 point stop. Losing 1,000 points on the Dow is just madness!!!!!!

Do the Opposite of what he does, you'll be guaranteed to Win
I've followed him for long enough, and studied past trades well enough to make an informed judgement.

Looking at his past trades, his failed trades outweigh his successful ones and I'm almost 100% sure that the only way this guy is making a living is from his subscription revenue, not from being a day trader.

To be fair, he does give a good commentary about the market and what's happening. But then you can switch on the news for that and get the same information.

For anyone giving this guy a good review, contemplate the following:

Being a good trader isn't about knowing the rules and setups - it's about applying the rules and setups to maximise returns. He knows the setups, no doubt...but he doesn't know when to apply them, which causes him to either miss out on major moves or to get on the wrong side of a trade. It's happened far too often.
