Former FPA Special Consultant
I don't know where you guys got the threat idea, I pointed out something that is plaguing every author and analysts because this is not a two-way street. I've been doing my newsletter for over four years and after sending it to hundreds of thousands of traders and not getting even 1% of replies, it is disheartening. You pour 4 hours and scan tons of articles, then you sit down to put them into words, and what you have to look forward to is to do that all over again in 24 hours. Without feedback, participation, who can expect this kind of work to continue?I've done a bit of research and did find some of Henry's products. There's no doubt that marketing for those products is full of hype, but since it works on TV (mostly for subpar products), I figure that Henry has simply decided to copy that style of advertisement and implement it for his own products. Whether that's wise or not, I'm not certain, but hype tends to lead to great expectations which can cause even a good product seem bad in its inability to meet the unrealistic expectations due to the hype.
As for Henry's reports here, they are much appreciated and if you see thousands of people checking your reports, it's a sure sign that people appreciate what you do.
As for the threat to stop writing further analyses... it's a bit odd. I think that feedback can be gotten in other ways, without threats of any sort. Create a dialogue, share how many peeps you earned and ask how much others have for comparison. You may find that people will respond better to such inquiries.
As for me, I've only started reading this forum and trading news last week, so I got only 30 pips or so.
For those who think I am getting paid big bucks to do this, just know everything is donated straight from FPA to charity on my behalf.
It is a great feeling to see tons of discussions and shares, it keeps me motivated because I know you guys care.
As far as ambiguity in my signals, I am issuing this about 24 hours ahead of time, I can only tell you to BUY at a dip or to SELL at a spike. There is no possible way to be more precise in my signal. But if you know the diretional bias, you can enter based on your own analysis. I believe knowing the direction is 50% of successful trading, and the most important 50%.
