Looking For A Great Gold Newsletter?

Marko's Take shouldn't be confused with Consumer Reports!  In this piece, we'll do a comparison of several newsletters in various factors, such as Frequency of Publication (FOP), Price, Recommendations and Timing of Stocks (RTS) and Accuracy (ACC).  Finally, we'll assess each newsletter on an Overall basis.

With that in mind, the newsletters to be reviewed are:   Bill Murphy's LemetropoleCafe, Clive Maund's Clive Maund, David Nichols' Fractal Gold, Adam Hamilton's Zeal Speculation and Investment, Jay Taylor's Gold, Energy And Tech Stocks, Przemyslaw Radomski's Sunshine Profits and Chris Vermuelen's The Oil And Gas Guy.

Consumer Reports watch out!  Marko's Take is onto ya!

Thanks for reading!  Most of these have free trials, so if you're in the market for a great newsletter, take a test drive!

Tomorrow we'll do part six of the California Crisis series.

  1. Do you ever read Money and Markets, Martin Weiss or The Elliot Wave Review? Another great site you might like is www.globalresearch.ca

  2. Hey Nyselady. I've some articles by Martin Weiss and they're great. He writes various pieces for LeMetropolecafe. In my opinion, anything based on Elliot wave deserves an F for its total unreliabilty and constant re-arranging of the 5 steps up and 3 steps down Robert Prechter believs Gold is going to go down to under $500! I've never read Money and Markets and global research.

    Thanks D

  4. Anon: an unfortunate oversight on my part, however, I have never seen his work, nor been a subscriber, so I couldn't have rated him anyway!

  5. Money and Markets is Martin Weiss' daily newsletter. I think you'll like it. Global Research is an accumulation of articles both of political and economical natures. I get a lot of information not found in the MSM.
    Oh, and anyone who thinks Gold is going down while the dollar printing spickets are on is nuts!

    Welcome M.

  7. activetradingpartners.com is probably the best service in the web, problem is they only take 200 people.

  8. Anon: you may be right, but yours truly is pretty good too....up 700% year over year!

    As Walter Brennan would say, No Brag, just fact"

    But do you need more investors for ATP. If so give the details and I know several people that just might be interested!

  10. Thanks for this very interesting topic. Can you provide some details about the exact content received by the subscribers of Metropole Cafe and Sunshine Profits?
    I allow myself to recommend Lundin's Goldnewsletter.
    Can somebody confirm that The Stock Elite Report is to "avoid"?
    (see articles such as:

    Thanks for your comments.
    Best regards. HFJ.

  11. Hi HFJ:

    I really like LeMetropole. It's the best value for the money by far. I'm less familiar with Sunshine, but it seems to be well thought out.
    I'm not familiar with Stock Elite..
    http://www.lemetropolecafe.com is the url.
    There are others,but I've seen so many that it's impossible to follow them all. In my mind, intellectual honesty is one of the keys, i.e. do they admit they're wrong. On that dimension, Clive Maund is excellent and Zeal is horrible.

    I hope this helps!

  12. Yes, of course: thank you very much for your comments.
    Greg McCoach's Mining Speculator is excellent.
    Best regards. HFJ.

  13. That's a good list and I agree with your grading for the most part. Nothing irritates me more than a forecaster who never reviews predictions that go wrong. There are no certainties in the markets, only possible scenarios and their associated probabilities. It's important to remember that as it keeps one humble and focused on self-improvement.
