PLEASE save yourself the money...go and buy some good books and if you *really* must pay someone $2,500 then learn from the books first, so you understand the basics then find a real live FX trader in your area who has been sucessful...offer him a consulting rate of $100/hour to help you. I guarantee this approach will get you more results than someone selling a "system" for $2,500 !!!

To date I have completed 23 trades. My account is up more than 150%. 69.6% of the trades have been profitable, with a profit/loss ratio of 4.9. The average holding period was 25 days. The average gain was 89% (the highest 277%), the average loss was 56.3%.

As with any trading, risk management is key. These options are not highly liquid, so I do not reccommend using stop loss orders. Control your risk by not investing more than about 10% of your account value in any one trade. (You can expect to have 0-3 trades open at a time) This will limit your losses to 5% or so of your account so you do not get blown out if it gets choppy.

I couldn't me more satisfied with this service. Highly recommended!
Hi JTM I just got on this website b/c I was trying to decide if I should invest the $2500 in Jack Crooks service. I am really wet behind the ears. I don't know a pip from a pop...and I see some other post that recommend Rob Booker's service ..but if I understand you correctly you think that the options are better at managing your loss. So the question is if you are just starting out and know very little would you recommend Jack Crook's service rather than Rob Booker's service? thanks Caroline

I can't comment on Rob Booker as I have no experience or knowledge of him or what he offers. I can only speak to Jack Crook's service, specifically "World Currency Options". (He has other services as well: "The Money Trader" and "Exotic FX Alert". Both of these are FOREX trading services.)

I suggest the World Currency Options ("WCO") as a way to get started in Foreign Exchange Trading. This service trades foreign exchange options (puts and calls on currency pairs) on the Philadelphia Stock Exchange.

First, let me clarify something. Jack doesn't sell "systems", he sells trade recommendations. He tells you what to buy and, most importantly, when to take your profit (or loss). Of course you are free to make the trade or not, determine the appropriate position size, close the position at any time, etc.

There are several advantages to the options approach for beginners. First, it does not require a FOREX account. These options can be traded in any brokerage account approved for equity options.

Secondly, unlike FOREX trading, the risk is clearly defined. You can not lose more than the price of the option plus commission. In the last five months about a third of my trades have resulted in a loss, averaging about 48% of the investment. In other words, I recovered on average 525 of the premium paid.

Thirdly, Jack does an excellent job of explaining his reasoning for the trade and provides charts etc. This is very helpful in developing an understanding of foreign exchange markets, and will be really helpful if you decide to open a FOREX account at a later time.

WCO provides a way to experience foreign exchange trading at relatively low risk. It will give you the opportunity to get some experience and make some money. The majority of new traders on FOREX fail. There is no system that will work over time because the markets change. There is no substitute for knowledge and experience, and in the FOREX market, that can take years and more money than you think to develop.

Happy trading!

The previous post refers to the "World Currency Alert" service, which trades currency ETF's. This is a different service from Jack's "World Currency Options" service, which trades options, not ETF's.

I have no first hand experience with "World Currency Alert" or currency ETF's and therefore can not comment on it.

Chrisbow, I understand you've had losses of magnitude and you seem fairly upset about the whole Crooks thing. Can you elaborate on the recommendations you followed, and why this seem to have failed so badly?

I'm reading about a lot of people on here losing money. I haven't read about those who are doing well or how long and how much money they went through before they started making a good return on their investment. Any insight or experiences with Jack Crooks program would be appreciated!
thanks,
Janie
