A pretty disappointing weekend report Unlike

    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 reports.        

    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

    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 or Steve.

    Victorh - first of all

    Posted by steve on 5th of Dec 2017 at 07:31 am

    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 located them. 

    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

    Posted by tradeit007 on 5th of Dec 2017 at 07:38 am

    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 adjustment.

    I'm sorry victorh  while I

    Posted by matt on 4th of Dec 2017 at 10:19 pm

    I'm sorry 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 section

    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 forum

    Also many thanks to everyone else who supported me via chiming in!

    Matt I can believe members complaint

    Posted by cuqui69 on 5th of Dec 2017 at 08:11 am

    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

    Posted by peterjennings71 on 5th of Dec 2017 at 03:07 am

    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

    Posted by sbwoman on 5th of Dec 2017 at 11:52 am

    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.

    Two comments: The "Trade Ideas" section

    Two comments:

    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

    Posted by steve on 4th of Dec 2017 at 01:13 pm

    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 patience. 

    The market is what it

    Posted by sbwoman on 4th of Dec 2017 at 10:05 am

    The market is what it is. You can't force things. It's not Matt or Steve's fault. 

    Agree the mkt is what

    Posted by bgold on 4th of Dec 2017 at 10:17 am

    Agree the mkt is what it is, especially after fake news move following report from ABC and weekend tax plan news event.

    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 moving on.
