Phil's Gang

As the host and creator of "PHIL'S GANG Radio Show", Phil Grande is the man who coined the phrase, “I’m going to tell you what Wall Street doesn’t want you to know!” In doing so, no one can call the Stock Market with such precision quite like Phil Grande can! Phil has been an entrepreneur all his life. He has used his business skills to take over privately held companies, which were in or near bankruptcy and reorganize them. Phil would identify their illness and write a prescription to bring them back to health by replacing management, funding them with his own capital, and through private placement.

His "picks" could be done by anyone
This guy offers nothing for his $50 per month. He watchs the S&P and trades it. He offers very few stock picks. Basically, he pretends to know a lot and knows very little. It might be different if he hot a winner once in a while. He doesn't. Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while

I think he just uses the program to pay for sprouting his well known material political views. I wouldn't even mind that IF he used facts but, he doesn't use facts. He uses his opinions and implies they are facts. Fox News does the very same thing.

The voice quality of the show is also terrible along with the content. He must broadcast from his garage with a tin can and a string rather than a microphone. Has a good producer though who gleems good sound bites from elsewhere as foder for Phil's views. Even that quality is poor when re-broadcast.

Just a huge ugh all the way around.

Feel Cheated
I joined the gang back at the beginning of the year(2013) on the recommendation of a customer of mine. He followed Phil from the market rise of the middle of 2012 to October '12(that's when he told me about the gang).

When I 1st joined, I started off with the PTT2, along with just listening on the radio(when I wasn't at work). That wasn't enough so I joined the gang so I could access his am, afternoon, and market wrap radio shows through my computer. I listened to the 3 shows for hours after work every day. I watched all the training videos(charting) 3 times over till I memorized them. I also got the PTT1.

I thought I was gonna be a master of the stock market at this point. I was about 2 months into my hours of radio shows+charting training videos. At least I felt good about my chances back then...kinda like I felt good for the 24hrs up until I found out that my powerball ticket wasn't the $600 million winner.

It was late February...if Phil was wrong on a stock he recommended, he would admit to it, and apologize. After a few weeks, he was starting to be wrong left+right. Not good when people are investing on your words...but oh well-I figured even a guru has rough spells. Then it got ugly.

Another week went by+Phil started changing his own rules. All you had to do was listen to the am show(the segment where people call in to ask questions). Phil would take a hostile tone towards people....people who followed his investing method perfectly! He would come up with excuses for why the caller lost money.

Soon, he would go on these long rants about why large groups of gang members lost out, and that they were all doing something wrong. One day he'd say..."the hourly chart+ptt1 are for day traders.......the ptt2 chart is for investers". A month later he said, "WE'RE NOT DAY TRADERS HERE AT THE GANG, WE'RE INVESTORS!" (I'm not a day trader myself)

The final straw for me was when he said, "we're still short on F !"....it was a friday afternoon show. Keep in mind this was after the, "we're not day traders comment". Two days later on the Monday morning show, he said that, "F looks good! F looks good to go long"

I was done. From admitting to his mistakes at the beginning, to 2 months later where he just pretended like he never gave particular advice 2 days earlier. I wrote a detailed e-mail to him citing the dates, and actual exact times that the comments were made. Guess what? No response.

I had stopped following his picks before it got too bad, and only lost small following his advice. The biggest loss was the $300 I paid in member+chart fees. Live+learn, right? I still have the e-mail I sent to him w/ the times+ dates from his show if anyone is curious. I'm tired-hope this helps you save your money.

Carefully crafted head fake
The Gang is a nicely built interface and a good deal of entertainment to convince members that something other than basic market motion means profits on an one individual stock. They rely on their simply stochastics - which are indicators of past history and not the trends of the future PG sells them as - and a bit of daily fundamental movement to make you think they know what's coming.

They don't know what's coming and if you ask them about all the contradictions in their stock advice they refuse to answer. They make you think that 2/5 of your long picks will earn when the market is up and 3/5 of them will when the market is down - advice changes as needed. It's a coin toss and I suspect they know it. PG simply plays to your assumption that mere stochastic market hindsight means something for the next day or two or ten or thirty and they take your money to jabber on endlessly about it.

This is a site for novices. There's nothing here except a lot of wordplay to disguise the likely fact nobody can assert trends for any one stock. There are dozens of technical analysis tools that PG never touches. It's almost comical that they've singled out one, used it baselessly, and sold it to you by subscription.

Phil makes a lot of claims but his service is worthless
This service is worthless. Don't waist your money here. I joined Philsgang and stayed a member for over a year. Phil has good intuition about the market, but he never tells his members when to buy or sell. He has them go in with 25 shares and then sit and watch. Then if the stock goes up he says to sell and take profits. He never commits to adding to shares. I believe he is afraid of lawsuits so he simply talks out of both sides of his mouth at once, both bullish and bearish in the sentence to cover his ass.

Phil is an excellent trader and protects the little guy
I have been in Phil's gang for nearly two years and it is well worth the money. In particular the PTT2 is a great charting system that will prevent you from losing money and tell when to go short or long nearly any stock. If you would have followed his PTT2 you would have been short during this sell off and make a lot of money.
