Join Phil's Gang

Here are some nice letters to Phil.

We like to share those with you!

Phil's MAIL

It is here we like to add your email comments sent to Phil. Your address's and last names are removed to help respect your privacy.

(unless of course it's something mean and then

we like to tell everyone who you are!)


I tried to call in this morning but didn't get in. I have a real life experience to share about shorting in 2007/2008 after being with Phil for just over a year. I was going to call in today after all the folks complaining last week. I don't know why, but I may even take it worse than Phil when people say your methods don't work. I would be happy to call in and share this with the Gang.

Here is what I have to share:

I keep copious spreadsheets and statistics on my trades. I went back over some of them this past weekend and looked at some of my trades. I remember shorting in 2007/2008; and because of Paulson's efforts to save the market I was up or down $30K to $50K a day at times. I believed in Phil's coaching and the trend of the charts. I held my ground even though the first 2 or 3 serious gaps down made me feel like going into my hall closet with a hand grenade and pulling the pin.

Here are the vital statistics from my speadsheet on DXD. I was shorting other indices as well. DXD was my main play, however.

Short with DXD net $93,217 largest hit 41%, over $10K profit on one lot of 400 shares in just about a week, trade ran from 9/18/2007 to 12/10/2008...more than a year.

Short with SDS + 20K
Short with TWM +22K
I also had some long plays during that time frame and SLB was one of them:
SLB +10.5K

Your system works, you just have to trust the charts and have the guts to stay in the trade.

Thanks as always for all the hard work and coaching.

Hi Phil, JR, Bud and Gang,
I have been with you for a while and have finally taken the emotion out of trading
while by following the PTT2. I bought SH,RM,TWM a couple weeks ago as indicated
on the PTT2 and exited all my positions.( except my AAPL which I have had since 911.)
I trade in my work 401k. So I have to use inverse ETFs.
Your help has saved my bacon this past few weeks.
The simplicity of the PTT2 is a delight.
I no longer sit and "let it ride" like other news letters I receive suggest.
I travel all the time and am in Tokyo now following you on line.
It was a good day for me today with your help.

Thanks again for you support.

Scratch that. 3000 in one day between my ira and my margin. I'm awestruck. Better yet, the PTT2 says its not profit taking time just yet. Still, I'm setting my stops to kick in at 2500 since thats still damn good money. This thing is going to pay for my wedding. And some St Jude cash.

Hi JR and Phil, I have been a gang member for about 4 months now and I have finally for the first time made money by shorting. I like the shorting better than long positions…it seems more true to me that the actual prices of stocks should be lower rather than higher in today’s marketplace. Anyway, I appreciate what your group is doing.. I am shorting JNJ, YUM…when Phil recommended these by the way, this was the best – easy to do and smooth to manage. Also short TSO, and long on the inverse SDS They are all making me money! Thanks again Gang! Best, Brian *****

Phil, for months you've been saying that the Fed would do a QE3 and that would drive the market up. It looks like you are right. Look at what the mere hint of it today did in bouncing off the 50 day MA on the SPY. Second, you made the gang aware of the Pelosi stock, CLNE. And yesterday when it got a major investment from Chesepeake Energy and it gapped up, you told the gang to hold on because it would likely continue to rise. And today it gapped up again. Thank you for these two outstanding calls. I am donating to the kids :)

hi Jr. I missed today and the day before to go long on my stocks , " thanks god " . I got out of all of my short positions a few min's ago. Is it best to wait till Monday or next week to see whats-up before I go long ? I think it's time for a long weekend starting now , I made really good money since my last mail to you. I made another $ 267 K from April to June 5th . I need to think things over, on a long weekend , because things look really shaky now . thank for all you guys help ( AND PHIL ) , and I hope every gang member did good and took advantage of this decline and do even better when it goes back up again. THANKS TO THE WHOLE STAFF SAEID


This chart is as simple as using a traffic light.
When it is green you go (buy), if in the northbound lane,
When the light is red you stop, turn around and get in the southbound lane.
In either case, when you get out in the country road, either going north or south (sweet spot) you give it the gas (load up).
The PTT-2 is for long hauls, not city driving (PTT-1).

Just love this new PTT-1. CLNE again today showed up apparently "strong" breakout, i.e. I) great Rel-stren, II) green on 30%Vol .......BUT ....

III) with bid-ask being up to 6cents apart, buyer beware.

So used these 3 indices both Tues and Wed to ride up behind the market-maker and take profits at his days-high. Good learning progress, great chart PTT1-adv

Dear Phil,
Thanks for all you do for us traders and the kids at St. Jude's. I just made a donation by clicking on your "Partners in Hope" link. I can't thank you enough for helping me become more aware of how Wall Street works and teaching me your trading techniques, along with your daily guidance. I used to compete against myself by using a whole host of different trading methods I've read about over the years, only to end up with mostly losing trades because of all the inconsistency. Now I have a discipline and knowledge that has resulted in a much higher percentage of winning trades, while keeping my losers to a minimum with small losses. What a difference it has made!! Your methods have worked the best for me and will continue to do so because I will never go back to the crazy hit and miss approach I used before locking on to your approach. Thanks, again.

Hi Donny,

I don’t know how many emails you got about V and MA…but they are wrong! You and Phil are VERY clear about how to use the PTT2. I had a few stumbles when I started, but you were very helpful and responsive to my questions.

I’m now making money because I’m using it exactly like you teach. I can’t wait for the upgrade to the “white” line .

Merry Christmas and a wonderful, successful 2011

CC: Philsgang Tom

The PTT2 works exactly as advertised. And, if you learn to use it properly you are guaranteed to make money. The amount only depends on what you are willing to place on the table.
I ran 1000 shares of AXP through the PTT2 in 200 share lots. I got in after it turned green at the end of October, I backed off when it turned red around 11/17/10. I loaded back up when it turned green on 11/30/10. I still had 400 shares on yesterday, and took half of that off in the morning, and had a stop at 44.97 on the last 200 shares. That gave me a 4.5 percent profit on that 200 shares.
On the other 800 I cashed for:
9 percent on 200
8 percent on 200
6.5 percent on 200
5 percent on 200.
Not bad at all. You won't get that at any bank!! If those were 1000 share lots, I would have made a lot more, but I am more than happy with what I got out of this, considering how shaky this market is. Without the PTT2 and what you have taught me I would have never had the nerve to get in here at all. The PTT2 just flat out works!!
As always, thanks for all your hard work, and the efforts of your entire team. You folks are just fantastic!!

Your training on PTT2 has been excellent. I have watched them several times. I was trying to pull the PTT2 training where you covered setting stop losses but did not see it. I previously was using the moving averages solely since 7/15/10 to make investment decisions using ETF'S only and setting trailing stop losses based on the price of the security relative to the moving averages. The way you do it based on using the largest intraday trading range over 3 months and multipling by 1.5 or 2 makes more sense. Am I correct in that calculation ? I prematurely sold out of all my positions on 10/19/10 by not understanding that if the weekly stochastic crosses over above 80 with the color green to ignore it. I made $70K since July but would have still been in most of my positions. Most of my previosly held positions are 90 to 100% on weekly stochastics with the money flow green. Would it be prudent to retake these positions with elections and correction pending at these levels. Some of my previously held positions are SDY, EEM, IDX, TUR, THD, FXI, EPI, EPP, JNK, BAB, TIP, MXI(ABOVE 80%). Other previously held positions below 80% are ECH, BRF, GDX, SLV, DGL, FXF, TLT, IEF. I built a portfolio that has a low correlation to the US market. Thanks to you guys I realize I dont have to avoid the US market but play on my own terms and I look forward to adding these positions when appropriate. Thanks in advance for your time and consideration. Keep up the good work.

Hello Phil And The Rest Of The Gang,

My name is Lou Kallianes, a new and very appreciative Gang Member. Thank You, Thank You And Thank You Again. I have been visiting your Website and learning from it for about 3 weeks now. 7 days a week and about 3 hours per day. I have learned a life time of information, facts, clarity, confidence and skills. I am a Private Chef and 53 years of age. I have always been a very hard worker and usually hold more than one job. I have worked like a “Mule” and invested like a “Jackass” all my Adult Life. You have put a stop to investing part. Thank You Again. I have been in the Stock Market since 1994 and have lost $500,000.00. Yes, $500,000.00, NO KIDDING. One of my jobs is actually a business which I have been running for 11 years. My business partner bought a $325,000.00 home and paid it off. I, on the other hand, live in a very small One Bedroom Condo and have 10 more years on my mortgage. Are you starting to see the pattern? Enough is Enough. I am ready and have to change the direction of my financial life.
About 6 Months ago I was driving to work and passing the Church that is on my normal route. I say a prayer on a daily basis at this time and ask for help. At this time I realized that my radio was tuned in to your Show on AM. I am the only driver of this vehicle and listen to FM. How and why the radio was set to AM I will never figure out. When I pulled into the parking lot at work I wrote down your Website Address. It took me 3 Months to finally Log On but I thank God I did. That is my story of how I got to this point of being a “Very Happy” Phil’s Gang Member.

Since I joined the “Gang” I have spoke with JR and Geoffrey. They were so very helpful and real Gentlemen. Phil, I look forward to listening to you every day. You are a fantastic Teacher, Coach and Person. In the past I have not been such a great learner but you have worked a miracle. I get it now. You have taught me everything I have been doing wrong and how to do everything right. To make a long story short, ever trade I have made with you has been a winner. I am serious, I made a profit every time. I am now laid off from work for the Summer and will be trading full time everyday. I am going to set up an account with Geoffrey on Weds. So I can also start to use the same charts as you do.
I will also be contributing to your Charities.

Thank You Again,
“I’ll See You On The Charts”,

Phil, thanks for your devotion to your gang members. Your passion for trading is wonderful and you are a great teacher. I have introduced many people to your website and they are all making money. My sister has a masters degree in Economics and has worked at the Chicago Board of Trade, and she was stunned when she saw your trading techniques.....because they work. It's hard to watch CNBC in the morning now without laughing out loud (Becky, Joe and Carl) They spin everything to their agenda, and now it's so obvious. So I will continue to spread the good word about Phils Gang, and the great staff that you have. Keep up the great radio shows (Thats how I get people to join, they listen to an archived broadcast) because the truth must be known about all the corruption going on in the financial markets. St Judes Hospital should do very well in the future because of you and you should be proud.

Regards to you and your staff,

Hi Phil - - Just a quick note to say your radio program (as usual) is terrific today with your talking about the Obamunist health 'care' plan & the power grab by the so-called 'elites'.

There are (a few) other media people who talk about some of these things, but most of them don't have the business & practical economic knowledge and experience that you have - so don't make as good a case. If everyone in the country listened to your program, we'd be in a helluva lot better shape. All the best, - - - Rob M.

Dear Phil,

I have been listening to your show for the past 6 months (while working for one of the largest brokerage firms that contributed to this mess), and I decided to join the Gang almost 2 weeks ago and I attended the Sat Webinar. All what I can say is this...

In these 4 hours of the Webinar I learned what I didn't learn in the past 7 years pretending to be a trader or even a "professional" advisor....
You have a genuine passion for teaching and a deep understanding of both charting and the MACRO picture as well

My greetings to JR (the Techi man) for a job well done putting it all together

My prayers go out to your son and all of those who have this vicious disease...My mother is a breast cancer survivor!

The Webinar is worth EVERY PENNY!

Cheers from Las Vegas !

To the idiot in the Easter posting.

Are you stupid or what? Of Course his show is designed to teach and bring in new customers. He is a CAPITALIST! I read this letter and could not believe it.

How can any of you sit there and judge him. He gives you the probabilities of what can happen. He has no crystal ball he can not control the market. Let's look at his past perfomance. My god he had me in cash long before anyone was thinking about a crash.

My own planner thought I was nuts!!!!! NOT NOW!!! Heck I have made some pretty bad trades. Looking back I was not patient my fault for being greedy.Just recently I wanted to add to my BAC so many times I can't tell you.

But the MARKET IS OVER BOUGHT. I have to WAIT!!!! Hey Idiot!! Go ahead and buy some now. I will check on you in a few weeks. Hey about my trade on the SKF @ 86. Phils pedicition on the banks being weak and then Citi comes out with fake numbers.And we get this big rally.He could not control that. But his prediciton on the banks being in trouble was right on. The Skf went to over 280.

You have to listen to what he is saying for that day. Everyday the news can change the direction of the market. Let me mention I am a past gang member. Phils lessons have taught me how to trade.I have this for the rest of my life.

I have recommended him to so many of my friends and when they showed me this Easter posting I could not believe it. The man has been doing this for along time. I hope he can keep going. There is alot more people to help and teach. I am sure there are alot more things he could be doing instead of this. Just had to add my 2 cents.

I am so glad that I pulled out to cash when you said to. So many of my co-workers talk about their losses because they are still in their funds.

Hi Phil, I've been listening to you on radio for over three years, and been a non trading gang member for over a year now. Although I couldn't trade due to financial reasons, I held on to your every word and followed the market daily. Well, this week for the first time I opened a trading account and feels great because of your sound common sense trading philosophy. You have a wealth of knowledge about markets and the economy.

Have you ever thought about writing a book? Well, I have attended about five of your webinars previously and they were great, but this one today is the most intense, and inspiring webinar I have listened to. Although most of the things that you lectured on today I've heard before but, I learned so much today. I just want to thank you for what you are doing for us gang members and also for your great contribution to children with cancer.

I wish you great health and a very long life; you got to get less angry about things that irritate and that you can't control. You just have to take it easy for your health. Keep up the good work and again thanks for sharing your knowledge with us. This us an exceptionally great seminar.

I listen on the new KKOL 1300 in the Seattle area. Found you a couple weeks back during my exercise bike time. I never missed a show since
I almost fall off my exercise bike laughing when you slam the Harvard circle. I have learned so much politically from you!
I agree with your shorting philosophy. Though I never have played the market I similarly dabled in currency exchange when my son went through university across the border at Langley, BC. In those 5 years, out of necessity, I learned that I could save mucho tuition dollars depending on WHEN I traded USD$ for Cdn, and vice versa. In effect, I was shorting and buying based on predictable cause/events. It worked beautifully.
I should have just kept the 120K school money and become a Phil's gang member with my son.
I will be joining the gang next week. I am 61 years old, retired, and think this will be a lot of fun. I only have maybe 5 thousand a year to play with per year but am confident it will grow under your training.
God Bless,

Great class Phil,
I’m a Gang Member attending your classes every day; on archive if not live. I have to tell you that your additional tips on the NYSE vs. the market, and the relationship of the transports to the DOW, and especially the marriage of interest rates to utilities during today’s class, was priceless! That’s a real $65 value!

As a working investor, I swing if possible, and with some success. My biggest problem is adding to my SPY X-2 strategy. I’m still way too allocated in cash. If you could bring a little more working investor commentary and nudging into the daily classes, it would surely be appreciated.

Subject: Todays Class

Phil, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you SOOOO much for your willingness to work so hard and to offer all of you wisdom. I have lost a couple hundred thousand over the last several years in the market trying to learn this thing. I honestly cannot tell you how great your classes like todays are and what your daily workshops have meant to me. I too am not an educated man and learning can be challenging at times for me. You are a wonderful teacher!!!! Dont listen to anyone that would say otherwise or tells you that you repeat yourself to much. I love it when I hear you say it again and again. I helps to sink it into my thick skull.

Hopefully I can catch on and make this finally work for me. I have recently lost my job of 19 years due to the current recession and I am trying to learn this to become my full time job.You seem like a very honest, fair and good man that is willing to help others for a REASONABLE fee. Your wealth of knowledge and willingness to share it is a blessing to me and others. Please dont stop teaching anytime soon as I desperately need you!

Thank you for what you do for the kids as well. A suggestion....How about offering these training classes on a DVD for >us to purchase so we can listen to them again and again. Im trying to learn so much each time and I know I miss alot and it would be nice to go back in a few weeks or months to listen again. Thank You!!! Ron R.

Congratulations on a terriffic class Phil. Worth twice the price and the extra hints are worth the price of admission.

Thanks again,Tom


Just joined Phils Gang on Dec. 30th. I've been a victim of Dean Witter, then Merrill Lynch, and lastly Mr. "Buy and Hold" Edward Jones from 1987 to 2004. In 2004 I fired all of them and opened a Scot trade account. I made a great deal of money in energy due to the bull market. But as you can probably imagine I lost a great deal of money in 2008. Ironically I was short oil with "DUG" and then short the financials with "SKF" and got scared out of both trades at a huge loss because I did not have the knowledge that Phil is teaching. The good news is I still have 75% of my capital and I am ready to make the changes that will bring me success.

I just want to say that the last 5 days have been the most encouraging days of my investing career. I am fighting back tears as I write this. I have learned more in the past week then I have learned in twenty years. I also attended Phil's last webinar on how to short a stock . That webinar freaked me out. I realized how incompetent I was and how much I needed to go to school. I cannot thank Phil enough for the teaching service he is doing. Please tell Phil that I've have been a student and teacher all my adult life and one of the most valuable things he does is to repeat often the basic principles. That is the mark of a gifted teacher. If anyone complains that he repeats something too often ignore that person as they are either ignorant or arrogant.

Today I learned that, "the market moves more like the Queen Mary than a speed boat" that truth alone will help me stop reacting to the market in a panic and start responding to the direction of the market. With the instruments Phil has taught me such as watching the slow stochastics; weekly, daily and 15 minute, watching the Indexes, watching the volume and new highs or lows helps me to feel so much more in control.

Phil is changing my life in terms of being a prudent and savvy swing trader and words cannot express how grateful I am. I want to thank all of you who help Phil do what he does and I look forward to every class that he teaches.

I have one delicate question. Is Phil taking his vitamins and getting enough rest? I want him to be able to help people for many years to come. Also does Phil have an apprentice that he is grooming to take his place in the event of his desire to retire or go part time?

Thank you, thank you, thank you and keep up the good work!

Subject: Re: Confirmation: "9:30 Live Trading Class"

I learned of Phil through my friend who has been making money to support his parents in a rest home making 6 to 8 thousand dollars a month for over a year applying Phil's knowledge.

I can't believe somebody would give me at least 40 plus years of experience. It takes 7 years going through the chain to learn to be a chemist and assayer, when the knowlege could be imparted in about 6 months. In industry it is hard to learn things because people feel you may take their job. Phil does a great job and has bumbed his methods down, so the dummy's can understand it. He is a great teacher. I could never have the knowledge and experience Phil has, but perhaps I can achieve a novice status in a few years. There is a lot of value for the money spent in the classes-----Ten dollars a week to golf with the Tiger.

I like Rush Limbaugh mainly about his anti-global warming. The fraud of Al Gore. Phil is way better eposing Barney Frank, Dodd and Schumer. Really like his stuff. I hope they don't come down on him. I got in trouble with the Mine Safety and Health Administration, my mouth got me in trouble with the mine inspector and gold mine closed. Went to U.S. Supreme Court. No Right to Mine even though law books say you have it/ Crooks in the law too. Whether I am successful is how I am able to apply the gift which has been given me.

Thanks to you and Phil

Subject: My broker call

Dear Phil:

I would like to share this with you because you deserved . Last week my broker call me and apologized to me because a year ago when I told him about me managing my own money on my Sep account, by following you he discourage me and... well you know the rest... He told me that he check my account (he does that every year) and was very surprise that when every body was 40% down I was 40 % up and asked me your name and what I was doing etc...

I gave him your name and web site. His name is **** ****** and he is with USB bank here in Las Vegas. I use their platform for trading unlimited and I pay 1% per year. I like your software better but.... no charge for trading is a good deal. Thanks for been with us every day and for your work with the children with cancer.

God Bless you. Jose

Subject: My First Profit

Hey Phil, I just want to let you know how much I love you and how you have changed my life....I think I joined the gang back in May or June of this year. I don't have a whole lot of money, but I decided to trade my 401K after it went down another 18%. It took me a while but I managed to get the money out right before that big 400 point drop in July (I think that it was July). I was very scared and my first few trades were a mess. I am on Meridian and I didn't quite know how to get the stops working on that thing. I made a little money with Broadcom but tried to chase the DOG & DXD in a down market. I brought it on the higher end and it seemed like it was never going to get back to those make matters worse I had heard you said to buy Goldman Sachs but then you clarified that it was for advanced traders AND the stop I tried to put in didn't hold so you can imagine how I was feeling. You warn us not to go over the cliff but here I was hanging on..Well, I didn't loose my cool and sell at a loss. I calmed down and decided that the market would head down again and to do nothing on the DOG and DXD. I also decided that I needed to try and wait GS out. I brought it at 87.67 and it was down to 59.00 or so.... Well, to make a long story short, I am glad that I made all of these mistakes. It made me realize that I could control my emotions. I just wanted to at least get back even and that is what eventually happened. Actually, it was even plus a little profit. After I recovered the DOG and DXD, I was now able to get into some trades with you the right way. Yesterday I sold DIG at 29.54 after buying at 25.56, I sold the SPY at 84.04 after buying at 75.50 and 80.78, I sold the XME at 22.46 after buying at 18.70. I didn't want to get greedy and my total profit for the day was $419.00. I have never made 419.00 in a day doing anything.... I know it isn't big money to you, but my 401K was only 5,535.00. I am currently still holding IWM, AUY, RIO and JRCC, which is doing nicely. I am making money buying 25 shares. Now could I be making more...ofcourse, but I now realize that slow and steady could actually win the race. I will be contributing to St. Judes on a regular basis because I believe that it is the right thing to do, along with tithing on the gains. As of now Goldman Sachs seems to be recovering slowly and I will have to make a decision as to if I should take my loss to free up the capital to trade or hope for a recovery. The X2 isn't looking so good....Also, I took a gamble on Ford Motors and brought 60 shares at 1.63...We'll see what happens. I have already accepted the loss in my mind. Phil, I tell everyone to join the gang and I keep you in my prayers. God bless you and the work that you do! I feel really good about myself and am no longer afraid of the future. I won't have to eat cat food and crakers. oh, I am learning so much from you on how to spot stocks....

I couldn't pay enough for this valuable information....

God Bless you sir, Jeannine

Subject: RE: Membership cancelation

Guys, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the work that you do. My GOD what a ride the last couple days have been !!! In the end, I made some money, but that's not as important as the lessons that I learned. This business is not for everybody, even with a good business plan, tolerating the paing of being in the red and the swings is absolutely insane. But Phill has warned continuously to be tolerant of this pain. What can I say, Phil it is a true maverick and a genious expert and true visionary and I feel ashamed that I have doubted him at times. He has the senses of both forecasting and antcipatory sight, that I have never seen in my whole career of modeling forecasting. I wish the corportate America had more bright people like him, and maybe, we all would be more proud to be part of this country. You guys are great! As I was going through the pain of the last days, I promissed that I will take some time off to do some studying and revise all the material REQUIRED for new memebers and see if I can get the courage to step into the trading again. After I do dthat I intend to come back if a membership is availble. Thanks again and sorry for the rambling of the idiot in me.

I wanted to complement you on your webinair on charting. I have searched for years for a text book that gives a complete methodology of using charting. Unfortunately, none of these texts explain the reasons and use of the various chart patterns. For the first time, I have a basic clear picture of charting since your seminar.

I listen to you daily on the internet since I live in a smaller town with few radio stations. I heard your program first on the radio in LasVegas (while on business). Your radio program is most informative to get the truth about the scams on wallstreet, congress and some of the garbage news. Of course I was sceptical at first about some of the information since I had been burned by the classic finiancial advisor. I suppose that I was lucky since my account only made 1% and not a loss. I could have at least made 2% in CD's!!! The straw that broke the camel's back occured when this advisor put me into Nortel. After losing 50%, the guy's boss called me to say that he also lost his money in Nortel. What a bunch of patronizing crap. I canceled the entire account and moved to an online service.

After hearing your program, I finally realized why he always reccomended these weird mutual funds. His commission!

Thank you again for offering the truth.


Posted Sat: 08/26/2008

Phil, Thank you, thank you, thank you. Im a newbe to charting and a new Phils gang member but not to mutual fund investing...what a scam! Ive wondered for years (+20) why the heck the hard earned money Ive socked away in a "diversified portfollio" has really got me no where. Ive always thought it odd that the funds Ive been involved with have such high turn over rates of stocks they hold..... Anyways...the information you presented was wonderfull.

I found that the notes I took ended up somewhat scatter but hopefully they make sense when I review them. Ive got an account with Scottrade and would like to try "shorting". I heard about you here in Dallas on a new radio station that carries your show.

Thanks again and I'll see you on the charts.

Hi Phil,

Thought you would get a kick out of this one. I ordered the book "Trading with the Enemy" by Maier .... it seems that the book is out of print and this one came from a library that marked it "WITHDRAWN" so maybe the Cramer Ninjas are at work withdrawing copies of the book from the market!

Also, I want to tell you that I started listening to you on the radio in 2002 when I lived in Florida and I I joined the gang in 2003 for a brief time ... my life at that time did not allow me to focus on your trading talent enough to be effective. I am now grateful that I can spend everyday studying your method and style and damn it works .... I recently asked for my money back from a service that charges $4,000 a year .... your membership far outweighs this one.

Thank you for being generous with your talent and not gouging us in membership fees. You are providing a service that will allow many of us to be financially independent so we can donate a portion of our profits to worthy causes.

Dear Phil,

I am sorry that I have to cancel my membership. My wife just lost Her job and I have to use the money, that I have been trading, to pay off the debts. Moreover I am tired of these games that the Wall Street is rigging the stock market as they just did to the financial. The economy is getting worse and everyone has to cut back on everything. After 5 months trading with you I have learned so much from you and will try to remember your valuable teachings. You are a man of interity and courage to say the truth whereas other people are afraid or do not care about. We need someone like you to run our country. Please cancel my membership immediately and I will continue to listen to you radio show as I have been in the last 5 years. Love you and best wish to your health.

Well let me tell you when I heard you speak a BELL went off in my head and I

was like, "This guys knows his @#!!"

To make a long story short I wrote down your website and I've taken a couple

classes and signed with the gang. I just want to thank you for teaching me

so much about the market, more than anyone else will because a lot of people

are either afraid or have selfish intentions.

I have told several people about you and hope they sign up with the gang

also. I havn't made money yet but I've learned how to NOT LOSE MONEY because

of the x1. I'm now getting ready to buy now that the market has pulled back

(I wouldn't of known what a pullback was 8 months ago, but I do now). Anyways keep up the good work! Do you have any t-shirts or posters of the gang? If you do I will get some

and me and fiance will be your number 1 fans in Connecticut! I'm not

normally like this but I just appreciate what you say. Any advertising


Thanks again!

Hi Phil,

I hope all the best in your health so you can help us to make some money for retirement and see all the scams that our government and wall street are playing. Your radio show today is sooooooo good!!. I laughed my ASS OFF!!. As a matter fact I hardly listened to MSNBC or Kramer who are a bunch of liars for their own good! Or I may listen to them so I can do the opposite. I listen to you every day and following your alerts which are very helful. I have found a new identity in life in following your footsteps. You are a man of integrity and bravery who dares to speak up and live by your principle. Your radio show brings ideas of making money, awareness to economy, and entertainment to make my work day enjoyable. I admired you very much and hope one day I can have lunch with you. When you have a chance coming to San Diego, please let me know. I have recently joined your gang since I have money to trade but have been listening to you for 3 years. Sorry I was chickened out and didn't buy the XLF when the market was at 11,000. By following your charting techniques and watching IWM and volume I have made a little money so far. I have stalked and bought AMAT today for 531 shares at $19.53. If it goes down further I will add to my position as you always talked about. I will be at your webminar next week. I am still confused about what you normally say "Short"...or play "short"... I will certainly donate some of my winning to the cancer kids. Thank you Phil for what you live for and you are my model.

Hello Phil; My son-in-law and I have been listening to you for several years now. We met you at a meeting you put on at a restaurant in Sarasota. Just wanted to tell you that we appreciate all that you do. I think that you are a great teacher - I love the fact that you are a "NO BS - TELL IT LIKE IT IS" kind of teacher.

I'm 53 - have been here in S'sta/B'dtn for 24 years - in the construction industry, and have become so tired of people cheating others - feeding people BS - usually to win the bid, or money, or whatever. I've realized that this will never change. Your teaching is the bright spot in my day - you make me believe that I can achieve my goals FOR MY FAMILY.

It's unbelievable to me that maybe some people send you hate mail - but I have read some of the stupid comments people send to you during the teaching classes. WHAT? R THEY NUTS? Truly, the passion that you have is so very important to far more people than you may realize. Your desire to help the kids, and to teach people how to help themselves and others - should be honored. Please, this is no BS. I feel very fortunate to be listening to you. Take care of your health - We wish you and your family all the best - and sincerely - Thank you !

THANK YOU for this morning's awesome show... you should put this on your highlight page. I joined the gang a couple weeks ago, and THIS is what I am interested in, not "hot stock picks..." I know it is cliché, but I would MUCH rather you teach me how to fish than feed me one.

Thanks again, I am REALLY getting my money's worth (BTW I scalped DDS and got $100 on it when it was down on that short you called, pulled out early to book my small gain, so that paid for my first 2 months of your tools).

Not all your new gang members are wanting to jump right in and trade, some of us actually want to learn what we are doing more than make a ton of money off the bat. Thanks again and best wishes,

Instead of being down $200,000.
