hard-nosed trading, solid ideas
The host, Brinkley, seems to trade like a pro. The only problem is he/she seems to disappear quite frequently, sometimes for days at a time. So, if you're looking for daily updates and charts, etc., it's probably not the place. But, when the host is around there is a very good atmosphere and some good trading ideas. Just be prepared that you might not get timely updates on any mutual positions.

Lacks Credibility
This review is for the www.bluechipbulldog.blogspot.com which the aliases Moo, Brinkley and Rosabarba administrate.

I read the previous review and agree for the most part. When Moo was there, he usually made spot on calls "before the fact". However, the Brinkley alias is somewhat different and vague. Her style is to come on at around 11-2pm state she was busy with other things and then list down a bunch of stocks that had already moved. When I used my screener, I noticed many of the stocks that she states from day to day are in the top 20-40 so Im wondering if she is just picking from the screener.

In my opinion, I believe the blog lacks credibility. A credible blogger would list the stocks they traded before they made their move and then list an exit trade. I see no purpose behind listing your trades after the fact unless you are hoping to gain credibility by doing that, to impress others or because that makes you feel more secure. Many subscription sites I have followed in the past operate in this manner to give the appearance of credibility.

It would be nice if Brinkley could come to Investimonials and address these concerns. I noticed when anyone posts feedback on the BlueChip Bulldog then it promptly gets deleted. Thankfully, we can post our concerns here.

Brinkley seems very civilized, nice and does appear to have some advanced knowledge of the markets. However, I have seen a lot of scams in my lifetime. Credibility is only gained when posting trades before they occur and then following up with an exit trade. Posting a bunch of stocks up that have already moved is not very credible. I hope that Brinkley can clear these issues up. Thanks...

Too many "After the fact" trades
Summary:

www.bluechipbulldog.blogspot.com started in February 2009. Moo and Brinkley, the administrators of the blog, were frequent commenters on www.slopeofhope.com. The Blue Chip Bulldog is basically a spin-off from the Slope Of Hope site. Moo states in his profile that he is a former employee of Chase, JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley who resides in New York City. There is no other history provided about Moo. Brinkley is a subscription site operator. She operates www.themarketmuse.com and according to that site "Diane K. Schwartz is founder of The Market Muse, LLC. Also known as “Brinkley” in online trading environments, Diane has been actively involved in the stock market for many years as a technical trader, stock analyst, and trading coach." The Market Muse appears to have been in operation since May 2003 according to GoDaddy records. Subscriptions on that site seem to go for about $750 to 1400 per year. Brinkley never mentions her Market Muse website during her postings on the Blue Chip Bulldog site.

Since February 2009, Moo has been the main poster on the Bulldog site and a lot of his calls have been accurate from my observation. From time to time, it seems that Moo steps out for weeks or months and the Brinkley alias seems to provide leadership for the site during his absence. While Moo tends to make exact calls with specific entry points and exit points, Brinkley on the other hand tends to be a bit more vague with obvious "after the fact" trades. For example, Silver had a big down day yesterday and she stated "Glad I'd raised my stops in the miners and closed most of my AGQ yesterday (stopped out of the remainder this morning). While not really unexpected after the recent run, quite a nasty sell-off in the bunch." This is clearly what an after the fact trade where the etf had made its move and then she posts an after the fact exit trade. Brinkley tends to post up a smorgasbord of equities that seem bullish for that day. Her style seems to be more of a daytrader that makes 30+ trades in a single day. Brinkley does not post her system or strategy except for text-book chart formations. On the other hand, Moo's strategy is clearly stated in the sidebar. Moo uses the RSI 7 strategy to identify points of oversold or overbought and then makes his trades from there. This simple strategy seems to be effective.



From time to time, Brinkley will mention accounts that she has under management. For example, she stated the other day that she was busy bringing on a "new account" and on another occasion she said she was managing someone else's money. I scanned the FINRA and North Carolina databases and did not find that she is registered or licensed to perform that type of work. On the other hand, I did find a license which states "admin disolved" under The Market Muse LLC in the North Carolina state government database.

Moo, in contrast, never mentions anything about his business dealings or personal life.

Feedback:

I have seen some good calls made in the past. Specifically, Moo has made some great calls. Recently, he made an excellent call on the turn in silver. It doesnt appear he stuck with that good call though and Silver did continue to move higher;)

Brinkley, on the other hand, does make some good calls from time to time, but rarely posts an exit trade and when she does it seems to be after the fact. She will post up a huge list of equities that she is trading or following. She mentions the trades that go well from the list, but never seems to mention the trades that go bad. When confronted by other posters on the site, she usually tells them that she stopped out of that trade. There have been a few irrate posters from time to time who traded Brinkley's calls closely and then, when those calls went bad, they came back to the site posting very negative abrasive comments. These posters were ultimately banned from that site. You never see any negative comments on the site because those negative posters have been banned.

At the end of last year, it seemed as Moo was engaging in a bit of "e-begging". He kept making mentions about donations to the site. There was also a bit of "please click on the ads" for a time. I believe that Google ultimately banned Moo from that service because their software is very smart. They figured out that the frequent visitors were simply mindlessly clicking on the ads. I do have an issue with this because why would Moo / Brinkley require donations / clicks to the site if in fact they were involved in all these businesses and star traders.

From time to time, other posters chime in posting links to subscription sites and heavily engage in after the fact trading.

Advice to the Blue Chip Bulldog

I enjoy Moo's style. He posts real time specific trades with specific entry and exit points. He does make his strategy known. However, we could do without the "e-begging" or "please click on the ads". I would love to see more from Moo in the future and it seems like he disappears for long periods of time.

Brinkley seems to be too vague and the "after the fact" trades is unacceptable. I would like to see Brinkley duplicate Moo's style where specific entry and exit points are posted for specific securities. I would like to see losses posted from time to time like Moo. Do I believe that Brinkley is making money every single trading day of the year? Well, I don't. It doesn't seem real when everyday we see Brinkley's positive trades, but where are the negative ones? We could do without the mentions of her accounts with outside clients. This seems like a form of public advertisement for whatever she is doing behind the scenes. This form of advertisement may violate securities regulations and I dont see her licensed to do that kind of work on the FINRA or NC websites.

We could do without the links to subscription sites or other types of links that are obviously advertisements. That is all just noise and detracts from the site.

So more real time calls, more specific entry/exit points. Less advertising, less linkage, less banter.

Just a note to anyone who wants to place money with someone they met off the internet to manage. You should do a full background check of the person in question. I would want to see a detailed resume describing what they have been doing from the time they graduated high school to the present time. I would look up the names of the businesses on the resume through google and call the numbers that I found on Google to verify. I would want to see actual account statements right from the brokers they are using. I would run criminal and civil court checks and make sure they are licensed to do such work. If I was giving them a large amount of cash to manage, then I would just go ahead spend a few grand to hire a private detective who has experience doing such checks. I would also want to meet them personally at their residence if possible to interview them and also run a check on the people they are living with. In today's modern age, you have to be very careful with who you are dealing with and so invasive/aggressive background checks are a good idea. The reason why I mention this...background checks...is because it seems like there is some advertising going on on the BlueChip Bulldog website and I could picture some older couple giving their cash to one of the commenters on the website to manage without really doing their homework.
