My rule about touting any newsletter or trading service is pretty simple and straight forward: If I personally make a lot of money trading it's recommendations, I tout it, if I feel like it.
Although I get approached by a lot of advisory services, precious few ever get mentioned on my blog. This one, is different. Not only have I made a substantial profit from following their recommended trades, but, it's an options service, a field notoriously glutted with losers and fraudulent promoters that prey on the greed inherent in a traders mentality and offer no value or substance in their advice.
But as I said, this one is different, it is probably the best options service I have ever used. They approached me about eight months ago about advertising on this site. I said that although I eschew advertising, I would consider reviewing their advisory service and reconsidering my policy and/or write them up if I thought they would bring any value to my readers. They started sending me their newsletter, I let several very profitable trades go by, then started acting on their trades, usually the kiss of death. To my surprise, the winners kept on coming.
In keeping with my word, I am recommending that anyone who is interested in trading options take look at this service. You can find them here:
Best Commodity & Currency Options
Here are their most recent, real time, real money recommended trades:
08/22/07: Buy BHP Jan 120 call @ $570; Currently $2,680.....+370%
08/23/07: Buy PCU Jan 100 call @ $1,150; Currently $3,580....+211%
09/04/07: Buy RIMM Mar 93.40 call @ $940; Currently $3,395...+261%
10/11/07: Buy FCX Feb 120 call @ $1,350; Currently $1,040....(23%)
10/16/07: Buy PBR Apr 95 call @ $550; Currently $890.........+62%
As you can see, not a lot of trading, but a lot of big, big winners. And that's just for the stock options. They also recommend commodity options. I don't trade commodities, but I have been following their recommended commodity option trades. Here is a sampling of trades they have recommended since I have been on their subscriber list:
Australian Dollar Calls +2,275%
Canadian Dollar Calls +319%
Crude Oil Calls +379%
Gold Calls +130%
As with the stock option recommended trades, what they lack in quantity, they make up for in quality. The cost of the service is $1,995 a year, or $200 a month, or for $99 you get a 60 day trial.
Options are risky, but the rewards are huge if you get it right. This service has been getting it right since I've been receiving their recommendations. Maybe it's a coincidence, or maybe they know what they are doing. I'm guessing and betting on the latter.
