I still listen to Brinker's radio show when I can. It's informative and entertaining. Mr. Brinker also has excellent guests, although at times his interviewing skills are poor.

But, the "Marketimer" newsletter failed me miserably. I only subscribed to that newsletter as a tool to help me avoid a big decline in the Stock Market. Mr. Brinker had had some success in the past with the "Markrtimer" newsletter -- advising when to move money in or out of the market.

In the huge bear market we had from late 2007 until March 09, Brinker advised subscribers to stay fully invested. In other words, the "Marketimer" newsletter failed.

Still, as I've said, I think the radio show is pretty good. The discussions on the show and his advice to callers are generally very smart and sensible.
