I mainly like “Marcus Today” because it is entertaining, witty and well written with a lots insights from experienced “stock market operators”. I am personally a bit more of buy and hold orientated with my own investments but always good to pick up god ideas to think over. I like the longer fairly general pieces like a recent one on what to own if you think the markets are heading for a downturn, one on short selling and an article on what moves share prices short term.
Henry and Marcus provide a service which is a quantum leap beyond any other existing share investing newsletters!
It was terrific to get another market “fix” in your session today. Can’t tell you how much I appreciate what Marcus Today is offering to its subscribers, it really fills a hole. I’m sure plenty of others feel the same way.”
If I had to summarise the reasons for success, I would say well priced; common sense with a bit of humour as a personal touch. MT provides age related knowledge and experience from Marcus and Henry that is not possible to replicate.
Your trade table in the morning and lunchtime allows avid followers of Marcus Today to trade with you and copy you on your actions and thoughts. In fact without running the sums I’m sure if you followed that trade for trade it would pay for your subscription alone – after tax as well – plus still have some left over…I think the main thing is for Marcus Today is the personal level of contact you can provide people. I attended one of your seminars in Perth a year or two ago and was very impressed and I also email Henry every now and then and he is very prompt at replying. Your insiders and facebook page have now allowed members to connect with your team and with each other and to date I think has been very successful.
Gives me good honest advice and strong integrity; unconflicted, deep not shallow; factual and pragmatic; great insights; all helps me to manage my portfolio
I subscribe to your newsletter because you have proven to me that I can trust your no-nonsense approach. (You) help eliminate ‘noise’ from the market in making decisions (and) provide a wide variety of information, education and advice, all with a good balance of philosophy and humour. You have the members’ share market standing at the forefront.
1. To keep me informed on what is going on in world markets, particularly Australia.
2. To provide investment ideas.
3. To learn from your mistakes, you are happy to put your hand up and say I’m wrong and why. This is very valuable.
All the best for the year ahead.
I have learned and continue to learn to be much more disciplined in my SMSF portfolio management AND to hear another voice separate from my full-service broker/advisor. I now feel that I manage them, rather than they manage me.
Great newsletters – keep calling it as it is – no BS. Love the updated news, overnight & daily updates of world financial events & business news — that can affect markets. Love the charts and explanations. The Facebook forum is a is a great innovation > love the ‘no dickheads’ policy
