Testimonials from subscribers to FCPS (1/31/13-current)
David: I love your work and have learned a lot while making money!!! I am a swing long trader with an equity portfolio. I look at your ideas for swing trades or long equity positions (nothing like starting with some momentum). Also I have more of a value orientation, and it was hard to analyze stocks that seemed high to me. Your methodology gives me a way to think about stocks that have momentum
Thank you so much for offering your guidance like this, David. Your insight is invaluable. I look forward to my consultation!
Good morning David,
The entire service is terrific, clear & not complicated. Your focus on the risk/reward trading as been a real eye opener for me. Your years of experience is apparent in all aspects. Thanks for everything!
I cannot tell you how informative and helpful you are. I could go on and on. Thank you for what you are doing!
I am fascinated how well you manage your charts with KISS comments. I am absolutely happy with this service that I consider unique with a lot of value added
I’ve been very impressed at the first week of service. Thanks for keeping the swing traders in mind, even though you are a day trader at heart. Keep up the great work!
I think what you’re doing with the Premium Service is fantastic. It is very informative and the charts are terrific. Thank you!
Tremendous job with this service! Your methodology is awesome on its own and because of its strong foundation and principles, is flexible and easily integrated into any plan one is trying to develop on his/her own. I’ve never seen anything like your service and value highly what you are teaching. If I never took a trade all year, the price paid for a year of your subscription is well worth the education and far more valuable than 99% of the classes I took in college. Pound for pound the best service out there, YAHTZEE!
I like your thought process with options not only does it limit risk but helps one stay with a position when it goes against you (but still within your stop). I have been searching for a way to trade individual US share options from the UK through a good UK online platform but I have yet to find anyone. Please let me know if any of your other subscribers have come across anyone that offers this service.
In the meantime thanks for providing such a wonderful service. It’s improving by the day and the real time tweets help build confidence in pulling the trigger on a trade. I only traded once this week (bought google for 4 hours on Friday – Yahtzee!) but would have held back had you not reinforced it with a tweet. I’m also very grateful for the background education. I have already learned so much from you in such a short time!
Thank you so much for CWSU, Daily update and tweets intraday
God bless you and your family.
I’m still learning, but once i get execution and placement of stops down, you are going to make me alot of money I can just see how your technique works. Thank you for sharing your system with me, I truly appreciate it.
Your subscription service has exceeded my expectations with the detailed charts and market overview.
I really appreciate your time today. I am enjoying learning all that I can about your disciplined trading strategy. While I have been studying investment policy for ten years and trading options for just one year, I have been brokering teeth in orthodontic practice for 15 years…and I have come to believe that it takes at least 10 years of full-time practice to develop true expertise. I am convinced that in your 15 years in finance you have become a true expert in options trading. I look forward to studying and applying everything that you plan to teach Fitzstock subscribers. I look forward to how you will educate less experienced options trading subs as I regarding how to be optimally positioned for the inevitable market downturn.
My sincere thanks for your investment of time and energy in the financial security of my family,
Charlotte airport on way back to Houston. Little cocktail on a Friday. Weekend is here!
Seriously though, you are REALLY doing a service to all of us wannabetraders here. Do not underestimate this!
You mentioned others have told you how some subscription services are sorely lacking this. This is an understatement.
I.e., picking bottoms, chasing, etc
the work you’re doing. I’m liking the service more and more each
week, and I find your approach and communication style to be very much
in line with my own sensibilities. It might be me, but since you’ve
launched your service it seems to me like you’ve relaxed a bit more (
I’m sure you much busier now though ), and I look forward to hearing
from you daily.
I’m not one of these guys that yells and screams from the sidelines,
or asks a bunch of questions just for the hell of it. ( I will when
I’ve got something important to ask or don’t know something ). I
watch and learn and trade when I’m ready and in the mood. . As I read CWUS each week and review the charts you send, I feel
like I’ve got a good partner on my team and I’m becoming more patient
about when to pull the trigger on a trade.Anyhow, you’re doing a great job and I wanted you to know that I appreciate it.Have a great long weekend with you family. See you Tuesday !
Your method works! I made a couple hundred in this down market and got stopped on my last runner.Im happy that im more discplined as a trader and not buy on emotions eversince i joined your service. I actually have a method.
Even if im making only a couple hundred here and there i feel more confidence about the market and trading.Thanks David!
I love your picks and your service.
thanks and keep up the great work!
I just wanted to let you know how much I like your service. I became a follower of yours on Twitter just prior to your switching over to the paid service. I’m so glad I found you.
Thanks for your great work
I wanted to take the time to thank you because you have absolutely changed the game for me. A week after our initial consultation my trading account hit its all-time low of $2000. I decided to completely use the ROE and 5 essentials at that point, to trade with conviction and started to really just focus on price, and not what I thought might happen. I have been long and short apple intraday, and long google for the last few weeks. My account now is back to $26,000. And I am sitting in cash right now. Thanks again!
I am enjoying the experience.
1. buy your initial position on new highs
2. scale in on early confirmations of the trade.
3. scale out on outsized gains and leave a runner.
4. wait for new flags or intermediate/short term breakouts to scale back into position or roll to further strikes.
Although I have not been able to capture your entries like I would like, my trading has improved since I’ve subscribed. For me, you’ve calmed me down and given me a better reference to trade. I understand your methodology and wouldn’t want you to change as I try to get to where you are. Love the service.Thanks,
You sum up your thought process so well, thank you.
I literally “feel” like I am sitting on a trading floor getting coached by a veteran.
Just by the way, I am very happy with the service you are providing thus far. I found that I had hit a plateau in my development and other services were missing either the informational aspect or the real time aspect.
You’ve been spot on..Been following you since 2011
FCPS service so far. Daily updates are great for having the right
strategy coming into the day. Appreciate all the hard work you’re
My account used to cycle wildly between big gains and big losses because I didn’t understand price action and proper position sizing. I feel like your system is the first time I’ve truly understood the rules that put the odds in my favor.
When will you be offering monthly subscribers the option to convert to a yearly subscription rate ? I’ve had your service for 3 months now and it shouldn’t take anyone more than 90 days to figure out their life………….. I want to convert whenever you are ready to do so.
David – just thought I would say a really big “Thank You!”
Tomorrow closes the 7th consecutive week of profitable trading for me. The ordered thinking that CWUS teaches, plus the commentary, has been a big contributor to this success.
Awesome service! Life changing strategies that are going to start paying for more than vacations.
$100 a month has led to a lot of education and a lot of profit. Best investment I have made by far of any service I have participated in for option trading. A little hard work plus an excellent guide to correct thinking – PRICELESS!
started 3 weeks ago ) and i know ( you wrote this too ) that since
then it has not been the easiest environment for
swingtrading/daytrading. But with impyling your rules and beeing
patient ( i traded only small size ) i was able to earn the yearly
costs of your service within the frist two weeks…..so keep the great
work going on. The best is yet to come i think…;)Have a great weekend and thank you very much !
thanks for your dedication and HARD WORK to get us the BEST service out there !!!
Spreadsheet is great addition
How does the market makers stay in business with CWUS, LOL!
Took gains in puts for CAT, CF, DE and holding puts in AAPL, MS, TXN which are all green!
Puts are my favorite option to trade.
Stalking the others to engage!
Thanks so much!
Have a good weekend.
I can’t thank you enough for teaching me the discipline I needed. I was a trader without an anchor floating around the market looking for a methodology that would work for ME. Your setups are awesome but without your rules to adhere to it would be nothing.
Getting a little better every day thanks to you….
The EBAY debrief is an important lesson that you’ve taught me. I was feeling impatient and wanted to sell, but I stuck by your principles, and today…BOOM. Excellent!
Yesterday I did the WMT & CREE trades, both winners.
Thanks for the FCPS service!
Your service is really one of the most straight forward ones out there.
You give clear messages.
Wow a lot of stocks engaged the last three days to many to handle for me its like a buffet-
I am often quiet, but know that you are the best I’ve ever seen David.
I hope to take advantage of your new service.
Good morning David,
Love your commentary. You answered all of my questions before I even thought of them!
Got all three of your put trades yesterday = nice green $$!
Your service is the very best!
Thanks for all!
I am leaving my emotions
Thanks for working your tail off to keep us disciplined David.
no need to mentioned that you ROCK 🙂
good morning Dave
Its been another great week.
Enjoying the service so far
Appreciate your long hours and hard work.
Dude.. I think if you plotted your subscribers you would be going parabolic… Love the multiplier you have going there. Well done.
I want to thank you for all you do for your subscribers. Not only the immense amount of work in examining the charts but especially your notes and constant reminders to all of us on how to be successful. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. Your track record amazes me and I am excited to keep it going.Just wanted to say thanks.
Having great trades again today…..more $ in a day than I make in a month at my day job. I continue to refer people to you so hope they are signing up because if not, they are losing $$..ha.
Hey David. Just wanted to say thanks for everything. I also realized about this is about how to become a better trader rather than being all technical and just following you blindly. I think I think that’s the best part of the subscription. I am up 200% for this month but I am also taking profits setting up stops and I am doing it a lot of it on my own (using ur ROE and basic principles)
Most of the positions I have on are using the house money.
Because of your system and your methodology of risk management I had my stops moved up quite tightly
First of all, i have to thank you ,i had a great first week trading with you. Your trades all worked out.
As you have said there is a lot of noise out there,and it does get quite confusing on what or not what to do. It is hard to change ones bad habits ,but this old guy is doing that.
I think your service and info is top notch.
I want to thank you for your service, it is superb.
I’ve been a subscriber for a few months and I could not be happier with your charts and stock picks.
David. I can’t express enough how impressed I am with your service. Keep the Passion and let’s keep making money! Have a great weekend!
I am starting to gain a much better appreciation of your methodology as I gain more understanding of it. I believe it will work for me as long as I am disciplined and follow it rigidly
your service is really great and charts are amazing.
I want to thank you once again for asking and for all the work you put into this. Your monthly fee is in line with other decent services, but the time you clearly put into this is worth a lot more.
I think you run an excellent service. I particularly appreciate your emphasis on managing risk and emotion
You are literally one of the best trend traders i have ever seen. I cant believe how disciplined and efficient you are with your trading. And your ability to manage your service at the same time is truly remarkable.
Great trade on MNST today! I followed your methodology and it turned out perfectly!
Sold half, 3/4, and left a runner that got stopped out at my entry.
Again i have to thank you ,you probably have been told by countless thankful people like myself, but you my friend are the real deal.
I do love trading,but now realize that i need a trading partner like yourself to help me along the way,so i have no problem in paying you.
Just a quick note to let you know that I appreciate your service. The tweets during the day concerning your thoughts on the market are very useful. Many of them I cut and paste into a word doc for future reference.
Dude, you are killin it….. Again, been doing this for over 20 years… you make us old guys look bad ! lol
Realize you don’t need the kudos from me, but just want to tell you I am receiving great value from your service….keep up the great work….and thank you!
I really appreciate everything I have learned from you. You are the real deal!
Have a good weekend man.
Glad to see you will be out on vacation David.
David, I want to also say that the videos are helpful. I like that your not trying to be slick but just deliver the information.
great videos, i really like them !
Thank you very much for adding videos. Very informative.
Thought you might enjoy this.This was a big trade for me, and I watched it very carefully in terms of risk management.I bought 5 deep in the money October AAPL calls yesterday morning after the news came out about the iPhone release.
This morning, I bought 5 more September calls as AAPL passed above the 200 day moving average (your recommendation).
In two days, I ended up making $20,000, and I sold the September calls toward the end of today. Still holding the 5 October calls that have already doubled.
I have been following you for a year on Twitter. Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂
By the way, I’m trading from Sarajevo in Bosnia. 🙂
I have been super busy with work, and haven’t been able to devote time to trading for the past several months. I felt bad about missing some of the super trades out there, but was able to make up nicely in two days, using a bit of leverage! 🙂
learning curve in this business. It makes me feel better about my
multi-year learning curve, which I am still in. So many posers on
Twits, Twitter, chat rooms, etc, it makes me feel really insecure
sometimes because of the huge egos talking about their ‘big wins’
(which I have no way to verify as true). Some guys out there claim
they’ve been trading for only a year and have made 10x their account
value. That is awfully suspicious to me, when they claim to have only
traded for 12 months. Unless they just got ridiculously lucky. Anyway,
thanks for giving a realistic and honest picture of putting in the
time to become a great trader like you, sir. It really builds up my
confidence that I will get there eventually, but to not expect
overnight success and be self-deluded into thinking this job is
David – Excellent video! This has helped me realize a lot of things that I am NOT doing right.
Thanks for everything!
Been a member for just over 2 months and besides the winners, have really learned quite a bit.
I have been a member just a few weeks, but already making so much progress on improving my P&L. Patience has been my main problem, I either jump the gun on entering a trade or exit a great trade too soon. Your rules of engagement are very helpful and I am teaching myself to abide them.Also appreciate your frequent communications and constant reinforcement of ROE. You have a great service going!
Hi David,Sure you get loads of emails etc so will keep it short. Just read through all your content, all looks really good thank you!I followed you last year & really enjoyed your CWUS.
The only reason I never subscribed was I didn’t want just trades sending to me, as I wanted to learn for myself & not just take trades from a tipster. Reading your information its clear that you want to deliver the ingredients for people to learn to trade themselves so I am glad I have made the jump having read all your content now.
I have been following / reading IBD for 12 months, now my head is right (I think!) risk management is #1 I am looking forward to adding your techniques & trade ideas into the mix.
Looking forward to it!
I am writing to express my thanks for your service. I have tried out several sites trying to improve my trading and wasn’t satisfied with any of them until I decided to try yours out. I feel I have learned a huge amount from following you on twitter/stocktwits and now your site for the last 3 weeks.
I appreciate everything you do. It has changed my trading and this has EASILY been the best year of my short trading “career
Just wanted to say thanks and keep up the great service. And don’t change as you get more successful. Looking for a long term Buckeye relationship. Fyi, I just furnished my family room with furniture from profits.
I just want to let you know how much I appreciate your service.
I have a little more free time and am wholly following your work. I find your abilities astounding and truly appreciate being a member. I am slowly building back my portfolio after years of floundering.
Thanks for the long hours and hard work you put in for your members. It is appreciated.
I appreciate the psychological points that need to be repeated daily for traders just like me and every other struggling trader (~ 90% of us) honest enough to admit it. The points you made today are the most important aspects of trading and ironically, the least covered aspects of trading on a majority of trading sites and literature. I personally know this to be true. I’ve subbed to many pay sites, chat rooms, webinars, books and articles, but discovering you on StockTwits and Twitter over a year ago was a huge game changer for me.
So THANK YOU for putting these criticalmental and emotional boundaries out there for all of us on a regular basis. Traders need it more than they realize. Again, I really don’t think most traders who follow your service understand what a huge favor you’re doing them by reminding them of the elite trader’s mindset. Few people, in my opinion, ever cover this or understand its value. Trade ideas are everywhere, but it’s self-mastery and a consistent method that yield the results. Thanks again.
As a new subscriber, I enjoy the video updates. One video update covers 10,000 tweets
Till now, I didn’t take just one of your trades because i had not much time for trading and i didn’t like actual market conditions. But i studied your homepage, posts and charts after work and I’m sure your trading experience will help me to become a better trader and maybe one day I can reach my goal, becoming a professional trader. For this, I work very hard. In the next few weeks I will send you a letter where I will write you my full story. Why I began with trading etc. But this will take some time because my english isn’t the best and so I have to think about in german what to tell you and then I have to translate it and this takes time for me. But after taking the annual subscription I have much time to write you this letter 😉 I really look forward to the next year as I’ll have the patience I need to get the right trades.
So, thanks for your hard work!
It’s been a while, just thought to drop you a quick note. Service is working great and sincerely appreciate all your effort in managing it for all of us, although I definitely have lots of room for improvement. I am applying ROE.
I would like to thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge and experience with me today.
Not only are you a great trader but you are a great teacher.
I learn from you every day whether from analyzing your daily stock picks, your videos or your twitter monologue.
You also have me looking within myself to figure out how I can become a better trader.
I promise I will work on staying patient while trades setup and having better risk management.
I look forward to your S&P futures videos.
I’ve been with you only a few days now and I’ve learned so much, especially wrt ROE and price structure. Your consultation did so much for me.I hope I drew it good and it really is a W V (lol). I’m using the 15 minute chart for drawing but trading the 5 minute chart because I feel I can see the structure better that way
Thank you very very very much. Time to practice scaling.
Have a great day
Don’t change a thing about your service. It is beyond excellent. Absolutely love all the improvements and additions you have made over the past few years. The lessons I have learned from you have been invaluable and impact my work and my approach to our products and strategies frequently. You completely changed the way I viewed trading and investing. I am extremely grateful for the time you pour into your subscribers and I know you will continue to see amazing and deserved success. I have recommended your service to numerous people and will continue to do so as its the best (out of dozens and dozens) I’ve ever been subscribed to by far. If you are ever in Puerto Rico, I would love to treat you to dinner or a drink and point you in the direction of some fabulous places to go with your boys. All the best…
Before I start, I just wanted to let you know that from over 1 year of being subscribed to you, I have learnt a lot from you. You are one of the smartest guys I have followed on stocktwits/twitter and there was a reason I did take your subscription over others.
I have been active in the markets for the past 4-5 years (with my day job) but the last year has been truly the most educational. So thank you for all that you do.
thanks David for all you do you are the real deal !
I’ve been a subscriber since this Spring and I wanted to say it’s been a pleasure watching you trade. I’m not active on twitter, but I do read every single tweet that you post (@fitzstockcharts ), all of your posts on your website and watch the videos religiously. You’re the best trader that I’ve ever seen and I’ve learned a ton from you. Really, I can’t thank you enough for improving my own trading.
Your clarifications are much appreciated as it gives me a clearer idea as to your risk management.
From snowy Canada, I want to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.
I’ve been a member for fitzstock charts since mid last year. I very pleased with the services. And would like to thank you for making me a better trader by watching you. I love trading and hope to do it for a very long time.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Just wanted to let you know I am really enjoying the service (again) so far.
I am trying (and succeeding, for the most part) in exercising patience and discipline. As I absolutely have hated to scale in the past (and I still do to a certain extent), I have begun to see that scaling can keep a winning trade from turning into a losing trade. Stepping away from the “game” for a few years has also given me a new perspective that I don’t need to trade every day and take every trade.
I am having my best week in terms of trading in many years and I appreciate all of your insight and perspective.
So markets are down 4 days in a row and truthfully, I’m clueless because all my accounts are dark green.
Hi David, thanks for the great video update, and even better, thanks for the amazing education you provide us during this past year. I learned huge stuff thanks to your clear and straight forward method.
Hey there David,
I joined your service when it launched. I want you to know something.
In reference to paying for something, I can NOT remember a time I have been as satisfied as I am with FCPS. A lot of that has to do with your pureness of heart. You are remarkably good at what you do, and have your members best interests at heart.
I just wanted to say you’re f-ing awesome.
I’m super impressed with the service, even more so with your ability to stay level headed, focused and unemotional – that’s huge!
Thanks for all your help this year. I came into the year a professional bag holder and now after a year of your service, I know I can make money in any market condition. The knowledge I have gained from you, from the educational book recommendations to your insight on chart reading, has put me on the path to making money in the market for the rest of my life. I can’t wait to learn even more this year. Have a happy holiday.
Just wanted to reach out and thank you for a great 2017. We chatted on the phone midway through the year and I appreciate the time for that as well. I have a poker background and thought 7 years ago I would transition into trading and start printing money. Boy was I wrong. After 2 blown up accounts and trying every strategy in the book I was no further than when I first started. I could tell I was getting more knowledgeable and a much better chart reader(I was putting in 40-60) hours a week, but it did translate into results. Once I finally did away with futures and decided to give options a try, for some reason I gave your site a look and best decision I ever made. From this March -end of year, I turned roughly 50k into 500k. I felt like I was really close to turning the corner, but for some reason your way of looking at the market, Methodology, risk management, etc, clicked and I was much more consistent. I don’t trade the same way u do(my timeframe is longer, typically 1-3 weeks if a trade is working), I scale slower, but have made this trading strategy my own. I feel it is important to trade your personality. Mistakes I made and won’t do in 2018 is trying to do any day trade, using weekly options, or putting on too many positions at once. I probably cost myself 150k from doing this.With this I have been able to pay off 2 cars, rest of wife’s student loans, and prefund a charitable account for a few years. After taxes, I will now have a much bigger base to hopefully put up consistent years.Seems like from other info i read and ur video today trading will be much tougher for first month or two in 2018. I plan on taking things slow to get off to a good start hopefully.Thanks again, and I owe u a nice steak dinner if we ever cross paths. All the best and happy new year.Warren
What a week, killing it with options. Thanks to you, I could not do this without your trading knowledge and expertise.
Fitz you created great education and trading analogy.
The most important thing you taught me “discipline”. when to trade & when to sit. and the #1 trade set up. 🙂
Hope you had a peaceful and happy holiday season with your family and friends. I want to wish you a New Year filled with lots of love, laughter and good health!
Thank you for a hugely successful year of trading!! Also, big thanks for your teaching videos that help us all to trade like ROBOTS and follow ROE!
Cheers to another great year!! (What an awesome start we’ve had!)
You said last year “AMZN will see 1300 before earnings”
So on 11/24 I bought my “Fitz”AMZN Feb 1240/1300 call spread for $15.87. Now it’s $36.18
Good morning David. Just wanted to say thanks for all of the work you put into this service. I’m actually employed full time ,so not much of a trader. I find your guidance very helpful in having growth in some retirement accounts and some small (but growing) investments. Very much appreciated! You’ve made a difference for me and my family.
