A pretty disappointing weekend report
Unlike one member who seems grateful the reports have been
combined I feel just the opposite. We all pay a good amount of
money for this service and I for one appreciate more info than
less. Sure it's easier for Matt and Steve to combine the reports
and skip trade ideas, but if they are going to continue to cut back
on the info they provide then at the very least the subscription
price should also be reduced. Another trend I have noticed of
late is the commentaries on many charts are not nearly as extensive
as they used to be.
It seems almost every report now there is a comment along the
lines of "lets get through these charts quickly". In the past I
very rarely heard these sort of comments and the reports were more
detailed and longer. Now that the trade ideas have been dropped for
this weekend report I assume for future reports there will be less
and less of them. Matt did say in this report if he got a chance he
would post a trade idea on the blog, however I prefer the
extensive charts and verbal commentary that are present in the
It's extremely difficult to hunt through days of blogs to find
trade ideas and to see how they worked out. It's much easier to
find them in the reports and I really miss the section titled
"trade ideas" they had on the old site as that made it extremely
easy to find current and past ideas. Hopefully they will bring back
that section to the website. Having said all that I still think
Matt and Steve have a great service, I would just hate to see them
continue to cut back on things.
I'm a professional money manager and trader and think BPT is one
of the best deals for the money on the market. The fact they
do a daily and weekend letter boggles my mind. Their trading
ideas and education is top notch.
My one suggestion to you is to also consider doing your own
homework. If certain categories - like commodities - aren't
covered do it yourself. I look at both currencies and foreign
markets every morning on top of what BPT offers. I also try
to do a quick review of the markets before listening to either Matt
Victorh - first of all the trade ideas section has NOT been
dropped, you can find it by clicking on the newsletters header tab
in black above and you will see a drop down that includes the trade
ideas section. I have proposed that we create a new header above
for Trade Ideas as some members have not perused the website and
Second, there isn't another site on the planet who even comes
close to how comprehensive our newsletters are EACH NIGHT and on
the WEEKENDS. Most simply send out a few words and a couple of
charts or a small audio piece. When there are no major changes and
especially during the holiday light trade we believe it's prudent
to get thru most charts quickly and spend extra time on relevant
areas (if some stand out). Lastly, to find relevant posts you
can simply use the search button above (in Green) or if you want to
see posts by Steven or Matt you can simply click on that button in
green overhead to see only our posts. It appears you have
overlooked some of these features on the new site so please
investigate when you have some free time.
Matt, I don't understand how anyone can criticize this website
that you have developed. This is the best we traders have available
to us. Thank you! Please tell Victorh he needs an attitude
victorh while I appreciate feedback I don't agree with
your comments for the following reasons: #1. There was simply
nothing, I mean nothing standing out in the commodities, it's a
dead area lately, especially the precious metals area. #2.
The newsletter was about 33 min long and contained 68 charts, so it
was very detailed. #3. The majority of emails that I receive
in support are the opposite - with comments for many years that we
need to figure out how to make the newsletters shorter and more
condensed, that we should do a newsletter like this only every
other day etc, quite a few members write in wanting to canceling
saying they don't have time to follow the newsletters etc, that's
actually the majority of the comments, and of course I write them
back explaining why they are wrong etc. Most services out
there do a comprehensive newsletter once a week or once a month.
Also regarding trade ideas - as one member pointed out - a
better place to look at a 'condensed' version of the trade ideas is
in the 'trade ideas' section because that contains condensed tables
for every newsletter and is a FAR better way to view multiple trade
ideas from days in a row, vs the newsletters where you cannot see
them all efficiently like this. Also the 'Alarms' button is a
nice place as well. See the attached image, if you are
wanting to track multiple trade ideas over the last week or two,
it's far easier to see them in tabular format from the trade idea
A couple other things: I am just now seeing your comment,
it is 8 pm Monday night. I was sick as a dog all day,
couldn't even get out of bed as I was so nauceous. I was
starting to come down with this on Sunday and didn't feel my best
as it was.
Over the years I have been the one who has pioneered all the
ideas and changes to the website: The way the newsletters are
done, the systems, the new website, the old website, I created all
this. I also answer the support emails, billing, legal etc,
all the admin stuff falls on me. The point I'm making, I can
hardly keep up, my wife makes comments all the time like ' you can
never go out with me and the kids, you work too much etc.
I'm also currently working on another big project that could
benefit everyone - keep in mind, that I have to somehow try to fit
developing new stuff, while doing all the normal work like
newsletters, emails etc. Anyway while I value your comments I
also think you should just email them in or pm us vs the public
Also many thanks to everyone else who supported me via chiming
Matt I can believe members
complaint about the comprehensive newsletter and some wants to
cancel subscription. I love you and Steve comprehensive
newsletter. When I don’t have a time I just look for
what I am interested the SPX or Gold for example and for the trade
ideas is just quickly browse the charts to see what particular
trade idea interest me! Keep it Simple.
I have learn so much from your
comprehensive newsletter than many books and newsletter out there.
Keep the great work many members appreciated it.
Hi Matt. I just want to add my support for the work that
yourself, Steve and the rest of the BPT team do for us subscribers.
I personally find the newsletters very comprehensive and
educational, especially compared to all of the previous financial
newsletter providers that I have subscribed to over the years. The
changes to the website are looking really good, and the Spy Pro
system that you offer as a free extra as part of the membership is
worth many times the subscription fee alone ! Keep up the
great work and I wish you and your family a speedy recovery from
your sickness bug.
I completely agree. It is amazing all the work Matt has done and
continue to do on the site and the systems. We get daily and
weekend newsletters (I like the single weekend report) AND the SPY
system, 401 paint dry, etc. Then if you don't have the time to do
the newsletters you can use the new player version and just get the
charts that you want. Its amazing! 3 cheers for Matt and Steve and
boo to any complainers! Feel better Matt.
The "Trade Ideas" section is still there. You can find it
under the "Newsletter" tab. Also, if I'm not mistaken, as far
as I can recall, trade ideas have not been part of the Weekend
Newsletters (though sometimes Steve or Matt will post weekend ideas
in the Trading Community).
Correct Richie - I have suggested a separate Header Above for
Trade Ideas for easy recognition. Just another item to be
adjusted in the coming days. Thanks for your
The market is what it is. You can't force things. It's not Matt
or Steve's fault.
Agree the mkt is what it is, especially after fake news move
following report from ABC and weekend tax plan news event.
I think combining the reports works just fine.
I agree.. I like the combined report
Matt and Steve do a great job day in and out. Some charts just
don't warrant comments each day and I respect noting the trend and
