Summary

This is now the 3rd review about Dean Jenkins of Follow Me Trades.

As usual, the service continues to deliver excellent results, and most importantly HAPPY CUSTOMER FEEDBACK.

With a bit of a twist, this review covers various topics, including a video review of Dean and myself talking about Vantage Point Software. This video is contained at the bottom of the page.

I would consider the topic regarding the legitimacy of Vantage Point Software to be a bit controversial. I gave it terrible review. At the other end of the spectrum, Dean gives Vantage Point Software a very enthusiastic recommendation.

Readers should decide for themselves.

Pros

Good user feedback

Subscribers can actually “follow the trades”

Multiple years of positive performance

Cons

Not for those “looking for excitement”

Dean uses Vantage Point Software. I am conflicted about its legitimacy.

Thanks for reading today’s 2019 update of Follow Me Trades.

This certainly is not my first time writing about Follow Me Trades. In fact, my first review was back in 2016. You can read that review here. In short, the overall rating was excellent. At that time, what I enjoyed most about this trading service was the transparency of the live trading results.

follow me trades performance

Dean Jenkins, the owner of the Follow Me Trades was very gracious and gave me a true insiders view of exactly what he does, and how he does it. Dean lives off his trading results. He truly “eats what he kills.”

However, it seems like whenever I draft a positive review, the trading educator’s performance quickly tanks. It’s embarrassing for me. I take these reviews very serious. Honest people buy stuff based on my opinion. As a result, I hardly ever write a favorable rating.

The follow-up review of Follow Me Trades

With quite a bit of nail-biting and personal worry, I watched how Dean performed over the next year.

In 2017, I drafted yet another review of Follow Me Trades. At that point, I had plenty of actual user feedback, and had participated extensively in Dean’s products and services.

Whenever you draft a review, there is a point where you must “let the ship sail” and hope it returns in good shape. From the user feedback collected over the following year, it was pretty obvious that folks were happy. The received personal emails and blog comments also confirmed what I suspected…that Dean Jenkins is a ‘good guy.’

But let’s also be honest, there were also some folks that were not happy. And they emailed me. They let me know why. However, even the people that were not happy — actually had nice things to say about Dean. In my opinion, Dean’s “No Questions Asked Refund Policy” was the reason.

Yet another reason why folks were not happy is that typically, they wanted more “action” or “excitement.” Dean Jenkins is probably the least flashy person I know. He doesn’t offer the day trading pornography we typically view on YouTube and web ads.

If you are expecting private jets, bikini models, expensive sports cars, and photos of exotic vacations on Instagram…you should look elsewhere.

Regardless, Dean kept churning along. Like a trusty old Toyota that belonged to your mother, he just kept running smoothly. And so, I drafted yet another positive review of Dean in 2017.

The 2019 Review of Follow Me Trades

Well here we are — it’s 2019. Do readers really want another slobbering review of Follow Me Trades? Not really. Its been over a year since my last review, so I thought I would try something a bit different.

And, in the process, introduce a bit of controversy. Let me explain…

About 6 months ago, Dean reached out to me with a “secret” and he “had something he wanted to share.” Whenever someone tells me they have a “secret” and they “want to share”… I get worried. But coming from the least exciting person that I know, it obviously could not be too exciting.

And so, Dean gets on a Skype call with me, and I thought to myself what this secret must be, like “Dean went to a strip club” or “Dean had a double helping of ice cream after dinner” or “Dean forgot to open the door for a lady.” Truly, that’s how nice this guy is.

Anyway, Dean says to me in a sheepish tone, “Emmett, you got one of your reviews wrong.”

He then goes onto say, “You wrote a negative review about Vantage Point software. That review is bad.” I then asked why? Dean then explained that while my review, pertaining to the slimy marketing was correct, that the actual product was quite good.

Truth be told, this was not the only highly successful trader that contacted me about the Vantage Point software review. In fact, Larry Williams also said, “your review is bullshit.”

Personally,  I thought the Vantage Point review was amazing. I beat the hell out of them. I giggle every time I read it. Every flaw I could possibly find was ridiculed and lampooned to the maximum effect.

However, Dean is one of the most honest folks in the trading educational business. And he kept after me about Vantage Point. That I had to “make it right.”

Vantage Point, Dean Jenkins, and a new review.

After a few months of ‘back and forth’ with Dean, we decided to do something a bit different.

The following is a ‘video review’ of Dean and myself talking about trading, and Dean gives his thoughts and opinions of the Vantage Point software. Nope, I am not going to write a glowing review of Vantage Point Software. Instead, readers should spend some extra time speaking with Dean personally about its potential uses.

In the meantime, readers can simply watch our back and forth, and make up their own minds. Thanks for reading. And thanks for watching.

Follow Me Trades 2019 Update (5) Hi Emmett, I just wanted to say that I am a student of Dean Jenkins and agree wholeheartedly with your reviews. Dean is one of the very few genuine people I have found associated with the whole trading industry. I completely agree about Vantage Point as well. It is a very useful product, but their customer support amounts to nothing more than trying to up sell. Even their ‘education’ tools are little more than a thinly disguised effort to sell you more indicators or markets or whatever. Just a note to anyone thinking of… Read more »

Why not statements shown.

(1)

Gotta love the spread sheet which you can just as easily show a statement or at the very least a print out from tradestation.

Pros

  • it was a video review

Cons

  • the person being reviewed is on the video no video of the course, no statements shown, no money making trade shown live

I most definitely understand the skepticism, but all you had to do was spend extra few minutes on Dean’s site – he has every single trade listed, including entries and exists. The site includes videos where you can see him trading live and you can even join live trading room 4 times a week where you can clearly see him trading on his live account. Giving someone a crap review because you didn’t want to do your due diligence is unreasonable. Dean is a stand-up guy and while his returns aren’t as high as some other “gurus” promise, he actually… Read more »

Hi Teddy ,

What do you mean.. ” the ‘winner’ was very small. One of the losers was MASSIVE ” .Could give us the detail of your trade ( entry and exit) so I can learn from you ?
He sent the alert with target and Stop Loss , so we know the max loss before we take the trade,

XOM: Short. Stop = $80.64, Target = $67.16. Can be traded with shares or options.
Contract details: Sept. 20, ’19, $82.50 Strike PUT

Don’t Give up – God Bless You.

Dean sends his account statements to an independent auditor for confirmation. That spreadsheet merely captures the information. Try spending more than 10 seconds on his website.

Not for passive investors (2) I tried out the follow me trades. Entered 4 trades he recommended and even got better entries than he did and lost on 3 of the 4 — the ‘winner’ was very small. One of the losers was MASSIVE and the alerts are slow to go out and often they are wrong and need to be corrected. Not recommended for anyone that is new to trading or isn’t able to constantly monitor the market. Very risky if your counting on trade that don’t need to be constantly monitored or if your not able to enter… Read more »

Teddy- Let me point out that making an assumption about a trading system on 4 trades is clearly poor decision making. Along with your approach to trading. Namely the “I tried out the follow me trades” comment. Unfortunately, that’s not how successful trading works. If it did life would be different. Successful traders actually commit, dig in, communicate with their coach, invest time, work through failure. I’m sorry to say it’s obvious you don’t understand the system. And you like to try things out, give up and blame someone else. If you think my comments are based on wrong assumptions.… Read more »

“Teddy’s” review could not be further from the truth. Up front I will state that I am a follower of Dean Jenkins, and have been for about a year. He is meticulous in his preparation and execution of his trades to a fault, explains everything as he is going along and puts all the necessary protections in place, stops, targets and even gives the choice of either trading equities or options, every single trade without fail. If you want evidence of trading, just look at the verified trading accounts on his web page. have you EVER seen anyone else do… Read more »

I have been trading with Dean for over a year. I have tried many different systems and his is the only one with consistent results. Dean looks at the risk to reward ratio for every trade. No one can predict the stock market so not all trades go his way. His motto is “keep the winners big and the losers small”. Yes, he does have losers, and sometimes they are clustered together. Dean is a swing/momentum trader. If the market is going one way and the president, out of the blue, tweets about new tariffs, and the market starts moving… Read more »

Teddy, Sorry that you weren’t happy with my service. Just to clarify, none of my subscribers has EVER experienced a “Massive” loss if they follow my risk management guidelines. That is what risk management is all about, recognizing that it is inevitable that some trade will lose and controlling loss through position size and stop placement. Bummer that you joined and had 3/4 lose, but success is measured over dozens and hundreds of trades, not a handful. My track record (verified and audited) stands for itself. As for the timeliness/quality of the updates, we are human and do make typos… Read more »

Ok (3) Whao there. I was just posting my experience. I don’t always get alerts or emails timely, not to say others don’t. My experience was from a 9-5 perspective and I don’t know how you have done in the past many months but for me it was 4 and done, I couldn’t absorb the losses (yeah 6% isnt’s a lot but when you add in the 3-4%+ additional losses from not being able to immediately execute, it starts becoming a big deal). I’m sure your daily traders that monitor the markets closely are probably doing just fine, but my… Read more »

Teddy, I understand that you are posting based on your (limited) experience with Dean’s followmetrades service. I have to say 4 trades does not a fair test make, in my opinion. Based on the percentage loss you indicate you were not following Dean’s risk management protocols. Every trade recommendation Dean makes comes with an explicit stop price spelled out in plain English. Whether you are able to be in front of your computer or other device to make trades during regular market hours is irrelevant. If you put stop orders in place, they will automatically exit your position when the… Read more »

You can’t write a negative review based on four trades, Teddy.

Dean is completely transparent, and the results, which are excellent, go back to 2015. It’s true that it’s not for the passive investor, but I don’t understand how that’s a negative review. His guidance is easy to follow. It takes a few seconds to execute a trade on my phone.

Longtime followMeTrades client with much respect for Dean,
Keith

Teddy’s review is about as inaccurate as any I have read. In six months of watching and tracking Dean Jenkins has picked winners more than fifty percent of the time. And, had I been buying/selling securities the way he recommends I would have made quite a bit of money.

So far as errors are concerned I can recall one error which was immediately corrected.

His updates are accurate and timely.

Pros

  • Business like
  • Professional
  • Methodical
  • Succesful

Cons

  • Sometimes slow

Dear Dean,
Never once have you steered me wrong in the 4 years I’ve been part of FollowmeTrades. I’m proud to be a member of this awesome community and thankful for all the work you put in day to day. Trading is a marathon, not a 60 meter dash. Keep on doing you.

Reply to Teddy (5) Teddy, I respectfully disagree with your review on the basis that Dean is a consistent systematic trader. Have you taken the time to review his approach? Very few people in that business have enough integrity to trade their own recommendations in real time. Dean provides a stop and a target for every trade. He even gives you an option alternative to really limit your exposure. Overall, his wins are much larger than his losses. However, nobody can predict the future and this is a numbers game. The probabilities of success are better than most services I… Read more »

Follow Me Trades - A First Class Experience (5) Well, Teddy is entitled to his own opinion and review – that is what this site is all about. With that said, my recommendation to Teddy is to spend more time learning what FMT, Dean and crew do — setup an appropriate trade size and if you’re learning and/or are not sure how best to manage your stops and trades, then paper-trade for awhile. It is only through knowledge and your own experience that you can decide which types of trades work for you and which ones don’t. I don’t take… Read more »

Dean Jenkins plus Teddy (5) Teddy, If you are unable to trade between 9 – 5, you should not try to be a trader. Instead, you should be using an investment approach where equities are bought for the long run. These are two very different approaches to the market. Dean makes it clear he is a trader and sets up trades with targets and stops so they can be managed. He never once has said this approach will work for passive investors. I receive alerts but I also need to be responsible for managing the trades I decide to take.… Read more »

(5) I became a follower of Dean after I read Emmet’s first review over 2 years ago. I’ve spoken to him on the phone a number of times and he always emails me back answers to my questions within 24 hours…usually much sooner. From a results standpoint, I’ve taken over 90% of his recommended trades over the past 2 years (I occasionally travel and miss a few), and my results pretty much mirror the results he has posted in his track record. Trading is as much of an art as a science, and can be difficult at time. But in… Read more »

Dean, keep it up! (5) I’m a new (last 8 months) to Dean’s FollowMeTrades service and agree with the positive comments of fellow traders. I will challenge Bill’s terminology of “bet”. We are trading, and with trading you will have profit and losses from using Dean’s exhaustive analysis of each trade( if it was easy and fool proof, everyone would be doing it!). Each trader is responsible for their own alerts and responsiveness to the alerts while Dean makes every effort to inform as quickly as possible. I have no regrets about using Dean’s educational service and tools. Thx Did… Read more »
