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.
