Some of you have heard about the new Fund I’ve been contemplating for some time [more info HERE.] While I’m excited about its prospects, I want to reassure members that pebblewriter.com will still be here, putting out the same kind of market analysis for which it’s become known. Sometime in the next few months, you may notice…
The site will be more streamlined, focusing on existing members, fund subscribers and financial professionals who don’t require quite as much hand-holding. Those of you who have been around very long don’t need another explanation of Gartley Patterns every time I chart one. If you’re new, don’t worry; we’ll get you up to speed first.
I might implement a premium chat-room format for active day traders. I’m looking into ways to share trading information on a semi-live basis for both fund members and blog members without cannibalizing the fund. Still much to be worked out here…
The website (and customized services) are moving to a more sustainable business model that won’t compete with the fund. That’s a fancy way of saying the cost of an annual subscription will increase to $2,500 on March 4 (except for charter members, whose rates are fixed.)
This increase will cover the cost of hiring administrative support for the website (sign-ups, log-in issues, etc.) that will be necessary once the fund is up and running as well as some long overdue enhancements in technology and communications.
I understand $2,500 represents a steep increase for some, but it is comparable to the annual fee charged to someone making a $100,000 investment in the fund, or a $150,000 investment in the average equity mutual fund. And, I dare say, we’ve had better success than just about any mutual fund out there.
Nevertheless – and, in order to reduce the sting – I am extending the following offer:
All members as of March 4 will have the opportunity to become a charter annual member — meaning your annual membership fee will be locked for the life of the site.
If you are a current monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or non-charter annual member, simply purchase a new annual membership ($950) by March 4 and I will add one year to your existing expiration date. All future renewals will be at the same rate for the life of the site.
If you are just now joining (or recently joined) pebblewriter.com, you may also join as a charter annual member at the current price of $950 before prices increase to $2,500 in a few days.
I value each and every member, regardless of your interest in the fund or portfolio size. You made this journey possible! I’m excited about this next step, and will continue to do my best to earn the faith you’ve shown by being a part of pebblewriter.com.
