Terrible Options Advice
Signed up for two years, cost almost $3,000. Added three options services.

Schaeffers service has so many recommendations that although it is possible to generate a winning trade, it takes place with about 5 losers. Incredible poor timing on JC Penny, Cisco, Carbo Ceramics etc., I mean the advice was the worst at exactly the right time. I lost a lot on Carbo Ceramics alone.

Their outlook is contrarian, and it goes like this: "everyone is dumping this stock, it can't get any lower because of this line on the chart, the majority of people are always wrong, so now is the time to buy!". Reverse logic for the flip side and presto, you have a service.

I would have probably lost my money anyway, but with Schaeffer at my back I lost more than I ever have before and a lot faster.

The only positive lesson is that Schaeffer's service has made me realize that if a so called veteran can't call options trades better than 15% (or less) of the time then I don't stand a chance either, so I will never trade options again. It cost me $3 grand for the service and I lost a lot more than that which is devastating.

Don't get sucked in. If you need Schaeffer's advice then you need to seek a different kind of advice. Look yourself in the mirror and admit that options is not easy and you are chum and not a shark Lock your money up and don't be part of the bloodbath.

terrible
I have tried using their service twice (why the second time I do not know) and have lost money both times. Their recommendations are terrible. I can do better using a dart board with a stock list as a target. STAY AWAY FROM THEM!

So Far Not Worth It
I enrolled in their Expiration Week Countdown Service last week ... so far all but one of their suggestions have tanked. I truly wonder about the quality of their analysts. I was going to give them one more month but now I think I am done.

I should have looked at this site and other recommendations before signing up.

Offers alot.
I have paid for a few of their alert services...the education was excellent and the website offers a ton of free info..but the ideas were so-so. They also hammer you with emails.

Awful. Awful Service. Don't Waste Your Money like Me
Schaeffers paid newsletters have absolutely no insight and help you loose money. They make bold claims, which should have been an alarm bell for me, but don't deliver. Save your money, because you will loose more on their trade advise than their overpriced subscriptions.

I tested one of their Overnight Trader options advice newsletters at $150 per month and the result : a success rate of less than 1 in 10. So lose money on 10 recommendations and recoup 1/10 of your investments on one. That is if you were can stand losing long enough for them to get it right. They make is easy to sign up but very difficult to cancel. Cancel one day late and they will keep bill you the whole amount and not flinch when you ask for your money back.

Also look out, you will be bombarded with dozens of "proven" get rich quick advise. Seriously if it sounds too good to be true then it is. Waste of money and time.

Very Bad Subscription and very expensive
I bought the Elite trader in Dec 2010 and after 6 months of trading i lost 10.000$ with them + the 5000 that I paid for the subscription. in the first 3 months when I traded 1option/trade I was on plus an average 10% return on investment, but after that 3 months when I increased to 2 options/trade it turned down and I lost a lot of money. I stop trading with them and I cannot recommend this letter to anybody.

I think you need to be very risk adverse to buy such thing and will not work for most of the people. It didn't work for me.

Cheers

Stay Away
Folks, do not put any money into this. you will most likely lose it. I had this for many years and while it is entertaining the value for making any money is close to zero.
