Your money is better spent elsewhere
I subscribed to Wallstreetwindow.com. What you get is daily commentary from Mike Swanson the owner, a community blog, and his trade ideas. The blog is pretty good and has many knowledgable traders providing good ideas. That said, Mike Swanson doesn't really contribute much to the blog. Usually, he just gives a daily market view and sometimes he includes his stock picks.

As far as his picks go. If you are looking for alot of picks, you won't find them here. Mikes style is to pick his spots and then bet big. For example, if he feels the market is overbought he may take a short position via SDS with about 30% of his portfolio and add maybe another 20% if it goes against him.

To lure in customers the site extents membership on a limited basis to create a sense of urgency. Don't fall for the trap. There are better services for a lot less money.

Too expensive!
I was a member for a couple of months, but I elected to cancel and receive a refund. Granted, many (if not most) other newsletters, or trading sites, don't offer any kind of refund, or trial period, so I do appreciate that I was given the chance to try out the site to see if it was for me.

My reason for canceling was that I feel this service is overpriced. Site access is $197 per quarter, so it is $788 per hear, which I consider to be expensive.

If the service were more affordable, such as $200 per year (or MAYBE $300 billed quarterly), then I likely would have elected to continue and give it more of a chance. If it were $200 a year, I'm pretty confident that it would be worth it.

I primarily signed up for commentary and stock picks from Mike Swanson, who is the site owner. However, Mike wasn't as active in posting commentary and picks as I had expected. He didn't comment on the markets daily. There could be a few days between commentary. There were only a couple of stock picks during the time I was a subscriber. However, the lack of picks wasn't my main reason for canceling. It was the price.

There are other traders on Mike's site who post commentary, and there is also a discussion forum, etc. Further, there is also a trading course included, that adds value, but still not enough to justify the $764 per year fee.

I feel there are other newsletters/sites that provide more value and they charge $200 or $300 per year. For example, one newsletter (a website actually) that I recently signed up for is $200 a year and it has daily market commentary from the trader who runs it. Another email newsletter (not a website) is $300 from one of the top market timers rated by Timer Digest. It is published 3 times a week via email, with S&P swing trades that have easy to understand entries and exits.

Based on some of the comments on the forums at Wall Street Window, I'm led to believe that 2010 wasn't a great year with regard to the performance of Mike's picks, and that there weren't very many trades, although I can't confirm the exact details, since I wasn't a subscriber in 2010.

If Mike would ever consider reducing his price to $200 a year, I'd sign up again. At $788 per year, I felt it wasn't worth the price.

Mainly a chat room
...with a handful of excellent traders that share their trades and answer questions. The owner of the site does not communicate frequently, gives bare minimum answers to questions that are asked and his track record this year (i.e. his return in the market) was poor (which he blames on his subscribers who complain when he is not in the market, so he "feels pressured" to give out picks). Seems more focused on expanding his business than in servicing it.
