Realistic Signals, but Communication??
I've been using the signals which have worked well, and paying/donating for them. However, the last signal was a cash on 12/19/14, and so for 10 months there have been no other signals or status alerts and I've not been able to reach Marco. Does anyone know if something has happened to Marco or how to reach him?

Excellent, transparent, no BS
Very serious mechanical trading on QQQ shares since 2003. I have personally followed them since 2010. Free service disclosing when to enter long and when to short QQQ. Trades can last from less tha na week to 3 or 4 months. Ussually from 5 to 10 trades per year. Very convenient for those with day time jobs. Also good in terms of commissions as trades are not often and the main goal is to catch big market trends. Very decent returns between 20 - 30% per year, compared to the small drawdowns.

Hihgly recommended.

By the way the link on the "Go to website button" is linking to the incorrect home page. The correct one is http://www.long-short-timing.com/Pages/default.aspx as of this writing.

Safely compounds your nest egg more than 20% per year on avg
This review will be different from the others, more historical. I met Marco, the creator of LST, in 2000 at an investor conference. He stood out. He was honest, intelligent, humble, articulate, focused, a natural teacher, and he made money with a disciplined, strategic system for going long or short. At subsequent meetings he showed the group the stocks he shorted as the Nasdaq meltdown progressed. He made 70% shorting a basket of stocks on just one signal, while I was getting killed in my value stocks. (They became a better value! ). Then he went long while a sharp rebound occurred, then re-shorted a new list of stocks. He used the QQQ system to trigger a go-long or go-short signal, and then a fundamental approach to pick stocks to sell short or buy long. (Now the long-short signals are still triggered off the Nasdaq; and - the Q's or ETF's - are used to trade the market up or down). I got on his friends and family list in 2001.

For years I watched the system trade, and I went over and visited some of his friends who were using the system and making very good profits. One guy bought his house for cash and credited Long short timing. He used the signals to trade stocks and options. I had my own thing using insider trading and fundamental research. I am slow to change. I never saw him have a losing year -- although this year he is flat in late Nov 2011 (80% of Hedge funds I've heard are having a losing year so far), so who knows how the current short signal will play out. He is excellent at managing risk, and making it safe to trade the bulk of your capital, with his core system, given the reasonable drawdowns. His long term performance since I met him currently hovers just under 30% per year compounded over five years. His goal is to exceed 20% per year over a full market cycle (4 or 5 years). And I've watched him do this for two market cycles. Obviously, he has exceeded the 20% goal, but that doesn't mean it will happen in the future, but I am confident that it will. Catching the big move down in 2008 was a life altering change personally. I didn't lose 35% like the majority did, and put all the money + selling short profits back in mid-March of 2009 on his long signal. It was emotionally tough for me to take that trade. I was very frightened. The system has been free for a long time, but if he listens to me, it won't be in the future. It's just too valuable.

He is very steady emotionally. He only follows his system. He isn't interested in this chart or that chart, this indicator, that guru, or whether his feelings "tell" him to do something. He only follows the system, and when the system says to go long. He goes long the Q's plus options. Or to go short. Then he sells the Q's short and employs options. He goes after intermediate trades, so usually, the system trades 5 to 10 times a year. That's it. Lately, with the volatility it's been more often, but that isn't normal.

What did I learn from trading this system, since 2004 with the bulk of my money? Don't over-think it. The system keeps you on track. And that will compound your profits over time. Anyone who can, over a five year period, consistently deliver greater than or equal to 20% a year (despite what the market is doing), will change your life, if you have sufficient capital to start with, and you develop the trust to act on the signals. It took me a while to develop the trust, so sometimes I second guessed the system. Most often that would be before a big move, that made good money.

I understand the developing the trust part is hard for someone new to this. That took me a long time. Longer than it should have, but I follow his system now, and it keeps me from losing money. That isn't to say there couldn't be three or, on rare occasions, four losing trades in a row. This year was one of those rare occasions. But, so what. The drawdowns were small, if you were not using leverage, and over time it compounds your money. Do you need to know anything else?

Read his investment rules, FAQ's, and Finding Success in the Stock Market which will teach you about the psychology of trading. It applies to any method you use to make money.

Makes it easy
Marco sends you specific instructions on when to go long or short using specific ETFs. Although the site is rather plain and any entertainment or education value is lacking, who needs them. It's all about the signals that seem to make you money.

I follow the signals and they have made me money.

Excellent
I have been following the signals from Long short for a number of years. This guy is a straight shooter and you can believe the results are real.

Unfortunately I did not follow these timing signals and my account is shot to shit.

The reason I did not follow the system were only the signals were sent by email buy ,cash or short with no information on what the system was based. The system is free and I had no idea who Marco was or if he was going to continue to send signals. I had subscriptions to other services where I lost a lot of money.

The last YTD performance have been pretty much flat. Actually I would be way ahead since my paid services lost me over 25%. I have canceled all my paid services and will use Long Short going forward.

The communication for long Short was limited to signals only. In the last few months communication has increased to emails talking about trading and current market calls. This has increased my faith that someone is watching the farm on the other end.

Although I never made a dime from this site because I did not follow the system I was the one who suggested that he put a donate button on his site so people could contribute through Pay Pal.

I personally has sent him money more than once only because he has a true track record and he is one of the few people on the internet who I have found who I can say is completely honest and does not fudge his results or give you the market can go up or down or sideways B.S. The fact that I sent this guy a few bucks and gained nothing should tell you something about the opinion I have of this site.

Right or wrong (about 68% right) you will get clear buy ,cash or sell signals which over time if followed will increase the value of your account.

Protecting and growing your money at the same time
I have used and researched many timing systems with poor results (Dynamic-timing, Glinser, and Stockmarkettiming) until I found long-short-timing. While the other timing services entice you with results that appear ligitimate, some have back dated their results to bring you into their service to take your money without providing you with the expected results. Some no longer exist, leaving you broke. Not long-short-timing, which was originally established to assist friends and family to properly time the market to make gains while minimizing the loss. Not only does long-short-timing return the best results when the market is going up (Long) or down (Short) but has used a Cash signal to assist the customer when the direction of the market is uncertain. No other system can be trusted for pure results other than www.long-short-timing.com

Impressive performance, lets verify results!!
These guys trade the ETS both long and short to capture movements in the market – their historical performance is very impressive (would like to see 3rd party verify these results) - $100k back in 2003 is now worth $600K. The alerts are free when you sign up – I am now following these guys!

Decent Site with good info.
My timing on ETF's hugely beat these guys but for beginning traders it is a fairly safe place

to start. I have been teaching ETF swing trading for a while now and I think they could do

a lot better for those that follow them.

Best Long/Short Timer that does not overtrade
This site identified the downmove in the market going back in 2007. They successfully shorted all of the major drops. I personally did not take their advice in 2007, but did so in 2008. I went to cash and saved my portfolio and 401k.

Best free market timing service I have found
I follow about a dozen free market timing signals, and this site has the best performance of any of them. You have to sign up to receive their signals by email, but it is totally free.

I sent them an email with some questions, the answers to which were quite enlightening (edited slightly for readability):

Question #1: How much of your past performance is the result of back-testing? I think your website would be more appealing if you clearly stated that you don't show back-tested results, or how much of it is back-tested.

Answer #1: The call dates did actually happen. What we were trading was equities and were using the ETF's as a tracking guide. It was too difficult for friends/family to run a basket of equities so we just told everyone to buy the QQQQ's.

Question #2: Do you use an independent service like TimerTrac.com to verify that you made the trades you say you did? If not, you should. It adds a lot of credibility.



Answer #2: We were thinking of doing that. I think that makes alot of sense and it would add credibility. Keep in mind, we started off doing this just for friends/family and its amazing how people have found us.

Question #3: Who are you? If I were you, I'd include some kind of bio page on your site, otherwise you're just some random website. If you truly believe in your system, you should put your name on it.



Answer #3: Since everyone knows us, we did not find a need to do a bio, but maybe we should. I really appreciate the feedback. We started this because we wanted to have a system that we could run our money on. Many of our friends/family have been burned really bad by other services.There is not a person I know who's portfolio is not substantially higher than it was when the market peaked in 2007. This is NOT a system that will make you 100% a month. We shoot for ~2% on average over a market cycle. The consistancy allows us to invest larger dollar amounts because we know what to expect in the model.



If the signals weren't free, I would be suspicious of their stellar track record as reported on their site, but I don't see that they have anything to gain by lying.

Of all the timing services I follow, I give this one the highest weight when making decisions on how to allocate my money.
