Investment Advisory Services


I currently have only two financial advisory services where I am quite comfortable using their newsletters as a starting point in my speculation thought process.

I used to have three recommended investment advisors – sadly you can no longer profit from the Ney Report by Richard Ney.

Richard Ney was author of several useful books in the 1960s including the best seller - The Wall Street Jungle, Mr. Ney is no longer with us; look for his books in a used book store. His unique insights are worth considering as you make your investments.

The other two recommended financial advisory services are the Elliott Wave Theorist and the International Speculator. Look at these and get some of their great information.

Join Club EWI from Elliott Wave International for free and read their current articles and get free in depth speculation training. Elliott Wave International also provides fresh and insightful financial market news of an unusual type. See the bottom of this page for an example.

Doug Casey has several services including the International Speculator, the International Speculator is a good risk free place to start. You will learn much more from Doug than just market knowledge.

You have a huge advantage over professional investors.

Professionals get their MBA and dive right into a specialized financial niche. As a private investor you will not be better at analyzing bonds than a bonds pro, or better at trading wheat than a wheat specialist. You can be good at guessing what's next, and learning how to profit in the almost now best sector to invest.

If you think metals will take off as China's growth accelerates, you can research iron, gold, and uranium. The bond and wheat trader will still be great at their niche, but that's it.

When in a decade or two you decide everyone hates stocks and bonds, switch back and by some stocks. If the professional bond trader is still in business, he'll still be great at bonds.

You can be a generalist, you can switch asset classes at will - you can succeed.

It is a great advantage.

Remember to think for yourself. Many investment advisor's ideas will be good, and some will be timely; but only a few will be both good and timely for you.

Make up your own mind.

No financial advisory service will care more about your personal financial success than you.
