Not worth the Money
I hate to write a negative review because I know Mr. Kirk is a nice guy but it doesn't take away from the fact that his service is trash. I was a member for 2 years. At first it was pretty good as he would provide real time market updates and show what he was seeing take place and provide weekly videos. About 4 months in he decided to "retire" and no longer provide intraday insight. I was okay with this and understood where he was coming from as he was still providing some value. At the end of 2015 he took about a 2-3 month hiatus and did not post anything at all as he was tending to his family. The issue was that I still paid for that period and received nothing that I paid for. Tending to family is far more important but all i'm asking for is to extend my membership period for the time period you didn't provide what I was paying for. Unfortunately, it gets worse..... In 2016 he decides to change his service by providing 1 PDF on Sunday's of the week ahead and that is all of the correspondence. Additionally he ups his price to $500/yr. This is $500/yr is for a PDF once a week that consolidates quotes on the week, mildly interesting articles, a "motivational" piece, a few charts of stocks (playbook), and his "best/worst" case scenario for the week ahead.

The PDF is absolutely hysterical because it is something that could be put together by almost anyone with a little market knowledge. His best/worst case chart is literally a chart with 3 lines: a green one going up for bullish, a red one going down for bearish, and a black one in between for the most probable. A child could replicate this same chart and it provides absolutely nothing.. He preaches not to pay attention to the news yet his PDF has 3 or 4 pages of talking heads quotes littered throughout. His weekly market review just says we went up/down with very little context. The playbook is also laughable because it highlights the "good" setups. By good I mean it shows the setups that were good 3 months ago and are almost at the target. Most of these were nowhere to be scene before the move.

In the end the service is now private and not talking any new members. To become apart of his mentoring circle you have to be an outstanding member for 3 years and provide a written letter saying why you would be a good candidate. His mentor-ship group is allowed to see the stocks he is trading and meet up once or twice a year. I just don't understand why he can't provide the same service for all paying members. I asked him for 2 years to show how he manages his trades in regards to placing stops and managing risk. I received no answer and it was also the default "it depends".

Don't try to become a member as there are many more choices out there with much better customer service and educational material. It feels more like his service is a money grab and not there to develop you as a trader. His move to Hawaii must of been expensive since he decided to raised the price 5 fold and provided 1/10th of what he was at the beginning. The end story is this is a report that can be provided by anyone with 2+ years of market experience and is not worth you time or money to pursue.

All this being said, I do think Mr. Kirk is a really good guy but has a major identity crisis regarding his service.

Decent bu nothing speacial
This is a decent service, but it has nothing that cannot be obtained on the web for free. Not specific trading ideas, just general market opinions which are no better or worse than others.

Never Too Old To Learn
After only a few months with Mr Kirk my trading is improving and profits are rising.

His daily output is full of the cream of current market thinking which has helped me through the current downturn .

At my age (85) I need all the help I can find to succeed in this challenging business

and The Kirk Report is giving me edge that I need at a reasonable price .

Thoroughly recommended.

Turned me into a full time trader
After following the Kirk Report for nearly two years i have taken the step to full time trading. Prior to the Kirk report i was following a popular investing service and although i benefited it did not give me the depth that i needed to uncover the core underpinnings of the market and self-development needed to truly navigate the investment arena.

The Kirk Report has not only provided both of these requirements, but has taken my development beyond what i thought was ever possible - both as a trader a personally. There is a wealth of information available on the site that will help the truly aspiring investor/trader. The daily information that is provided is extremely valuable, the "top-down" approach (Indices then Stocks/ETF's) always gives a fresh perspective each day and gives a constant steer in terms of how one should approach the following session.

The information that is provided expands beyond the financial markets and also covers life/personal development which for me has help me make major conclusions where life changing decisions had to be made.

As a whole, i could not image a better way to develop as a trader (and personally) if you have a passion about the markets. I am sure others may find a service that they are suitably happy with but this for me is the 'go to service' that i use every day and do not see any change where that is concerned for the foreseeable future.

For anyone seriously thinking of making steps to improve their financial and personal standing, this is the service to use.

Trading and personal development would not be the same without it!

Didn't like it at first but now I like it a lot
Initially I subscribed to The Kirk Report thinking I wanted to put my retirement $ to work and I was looking for something to tell me what to buy and sell. I didn't really read all the reviews but I chose it because of all the good reviews on the site. I was a little disappointed when I realized that's not what it is about. There is a section with a list of tickers and charts if that's what you're looking for but he doesn't say "buy this". After a couple of weeks, I learned to appreciate how useful newsletter is. I really like the technical update each night. The research and perspective section is great. It is actually "entertaining" because I really don't have the time to read all that stuff he puts on the "weekend magazine". At first I didn't even read that then I realized how useful it is. I wouldn't recommend subscribing to his service unless you're interested in learning more about trading and want something to help keep you in the loop.

Not much value
If this site was free, it could get maybe 3 stars. But as a subscription product, there is very little value there. The market analysis is okay but nothing special. And thee are no specific recommendations or stock analysis which should be part of any subscription service. No actionable trading ideas whatsoever.

It is not expensive at $100/year, but I guess you get what you pay for.

One of the most valuable tools in an investor's tool box.
Being more of an investor than a trader, Charles has taught me how to be patient, pick my spots, and cut my losses asap in my "trading account," to name a few advantages garnered from his work. The access to and quality of the information provided far exceeds any other site I follow. It's certainly made me a better participant in this fickle game! I would highly recommend THE KIRK REPORT to everyone at every level of investing/trading.

Not worth it
You really can't make any trading decisions based on the service provided by kirk. He provides daily reports and weekend report called weekend chart show.

Most of his weekend chart show ends up with the following notion:

Either market goes up or market goes down or stays flat. He describes this by saying best case scenario: market goes up. worst case scenario: market goes down. or stays flat.

Everybody knows about this.You really cannot make any trading decisions based on his service. His future price projection varies every day. 95% of the time, his future price projection fails.

If you enter a trade based on his service, more likely(almost definitely) you will fail. There are better trading/investment newsletters out there which will help you in making a trading setup and a trade.

Pros:

He speaks clearly.

Got some good books to read.

Cons:

Lacks appropriate trading service content.

More importantly, you cannot make any trading decision based on his service from either daily or weekly report.

$200/yr subscription and $100/yr renewal subcriptions are way expensive for the content provided. Free services such as Finance yahoo, Finance google, cnbc, marketwatch, optionmonster or special reports from your favorite broker may provide better content than this.

Overall, I would say stay away from this. If you like making trading decision or reading better high quality investment service, better look for Navellier blue chip or emerging growth or similar service.

Decent blog
This is a decent blog with lots of valuable information. It's definitely worth the price of $100/year.

Very helpful, great service
Charles Kirk offers a very high-quality service with his Kirk Report. He's proven himself as a trader and now passes on his vast knowledge of the markets to his subscribers. Not only is his service as it now stands helpful, but he is constantly trying to improve the service by coming up with new offerings to subscribers. I find everything he says helpful and feel I have learned a lot from him. One great thing about him is that he never pretends to know what the market will actually do; he simply says that, given such and such price action, we're likely to see this or it's time to be cautious or whatever. He also stays on top of all market action, maintains a list of recommended reading, and tells you what resources he personally uses, from newsletters he subscribes to down to what office furniture and computer equipment and software he has. Charles puts a lot of thought into his service, and it shows. All in all, a very worthwhile service.
