About Jason Bond Picks
Focusing mostly on small-caps and penny stocks, JasonBondPicks.com is a subscription-based trade alerts service that also markets training programs. The chatroom offers 10-20 intra-day trade alerts with a daily profit goal of $500 and up to ten weekly swing trade alerts with an annual profit target of $100,000. The long-term trading newsletter offers a weekly combination of up to two swing trades and up to three long-term trades delivered via e-mail and text messenger. The Millionaire Roadmap service combines all the services in an annual package in addition to special access to the VIP chatroom, special direct access to Jason Bond’s and Luke Murray’s live brokerage platforms, mentorship/training webinars and access to TopStockPicks ETF services suited for the “serious traders”. This package costs a whopping $9,999 annually.
The site is filled with positive video and written testimonials, endorsements and success stories almost to a point of overload. It’s very hard not to be convinced of the validity of this service after listening to a few of them, especially some of the celebrity endorsements including Jose Conseco and former UFC champion Frank Mir. The $15,000 to $2 million video testimonial right on the homepage is pretty compelling. However, I know penny stocks are the most manipulated “pump and dump” riddled scams in the markets, so I had my “guards up” trying the day trading/swing trading service for the $399 quarterly rate. They offer no trial period or refunds and bill on a recurring basis for whichever membership plan is taken.

Jason Bond and Raging Bull
Jason Bond Picks is operated under the Raging Bull umbrella of brands. Raging Bull is a marketing powerhouse in the world of online trading education and stock picks. The company, co-founded by Jason Bond and Jeff Bishop, features multiple trainers for a variety of different trading styles. Jason Bond heads the swing trading division while Jeff Bishop runs the options trading division.
While Raging Bull is now primarily focused on trading education and stock alerts, the company used to own a lot of penny stock promotion newsletters. Some traders will be familiar with Beacon Equity, an infamous penny stock promoter. While this wing of the company is no longer active, investors should still be aware of the company’s roots.
All of Raging Bull’s services receive mixed reviews. It’s clear that Raging Bull’s success is founded on the company’s impressive ability to market at a massive scale. That said, good marketing and quality services are not mutually exclusive, so let’s take a closer look at Jason Bond’s service as we continue our review.
Jason Bond’s Trading Strategy
Jason Bond’s strategy is built around swing trading lower priced stocks. Jason Bond researches and releases a few stock picks each week.
Jason Bond Chat Room
The chat room used to be a large part of Jason Bond’s service, but it seems the company has started to make a move in a different direction. During our initial 2017 review, we noted that the service had a few prominent traders in the chat room. Jason Bond was active, as was Luke Murray, who was primarily focused on intraday scalps. Accordingly, the chat room covered a broad range of trading styles ranging from short-term scalping to longer-term swing trades.
Since the time of our initial review, Luke Murray left Jason Bond Picks to start his own service and a couple of the other active moderators are no longer present.
The chat room still covers a range of styles, however I would argue Jason Bond’s service is more focused on education and alerts now (which we’ll get to soon).
There are multiple chat rooms and Jason tends to hang out more in the Millionaire Roadmap program chat room.
The chatroom regularly has over 500 attendees throughout the day. Most of them never say a word. There are a lot of newbies asking a ton of questions along with the typical “cheerleaders” that cheer on their positions. The massive number of members in the room chasing the alerts has a self-fulfilling prophecy of moving the stocks (initially) in the intended directions. This is more true for intraday trades, however it’s important to keep in mind before entering a position. The followup and sustained movement is the really important factor. I have made some profits but also got burned on stocks that collapsed as soon as a trade exit is announced.
Overall, the chatroom has a lot of golden nuggets for traders who are prudent, disciplined and can react on their own. The site likes to spotlight the big winners and testimonials from members who made big scores on the picks.
Now, let’s look at the training and education.
Jason Bond Training and Education
Basic membership provides access to a ton of educational videos and webinars on the site. Additional courses can be purchased individually or in bundles. The Millionaire Roadmap program gives access to all courses, videos and lives webinars.
The educational resources explain Jason Bond’s trading methodology. Jason offers a handful of video lessons as well as mini-courses focused on topics like “The Basics of Swing Trading” and “Penny Stocks 101.” These educational resources are all included with a Jason Bond Picks annual subscription.
The quality of the education ranges by video. A lot of the video lessons provide great lessons in technical analysis and trading strategy. Some of the mini-courses are a bit watered down and seem as if they are designed specifically for beginners.
Overall, I was impressed with the quality of a lot of the lessons offered to members of Jason Bond Picks. Many educators will oversimplify the trading process to appeal to a broader range of customers. While Jason Bond’s marketing certainly takes that approach, the content actually delivers. There are a lot of great technical analysis lessons and basic stock market tutorials.
Jason Bond Stock Picks
The stock picks are now considered to be one of the key offerings of Jason Bond’s service. Jason Bond claims to offer well-researched stock picks that he sends to subscribers every week. Subscribers can follow these stock picks in a few ways.
- Daily Watch Lists – Jason sends out a watch list of his favorite stocks every day.
- Email Alerts – Jason Bond sends email alerts whenever he enters a new position.
- SMS Alerts – Jason Bond sends an SMS alert alongside email updates. These messages are sent for both buy and sell orders.
Like most traders, Jason Bond has both winning and losing trades. That said, the steep price of the service may make it difficult for traders to recoup the subscription costs from the stock picks. Whereas companies like Motley Fool charge $99/year for stock alerts, Jason Bond charges $1,497 for access to the Jason Bond Picks service. This means traders need to make at least $1,497 in additional returns in order to recoup the cost of the subscription. For a trader with a $10,000 account, this represents an additional 15% in returns. For investors with under $5,000, it becomes even more difficult to cover the costs of the service.
I recommend starting with the discounted quarterly subscription (found here) to see if the service is a good fit for you.
While it’s certainly possible to achieve the returns necessary to cover the cost of the service, it’s no easy feat. Prospective customers should keep this in mind before purchasing a subscription. You should also consider your own personal financial situation. If you have a large portfolio, it will be much easier to recoup the subscription costs.
What Type of Trader is Jason Bond’s Service Best For?
Over the years, Jason Bond Picks has shifted focus from active day trading to swing trading. While the service was always rooted in swing trading methodologies, it used to provide more resources for active day traders. Now, the service is primarily focused on education and stock alerts.
With this in mind, Jason Bond Picks is best for new traders who will get value from the education and the stock alerts. The education itself is rather elementary. You can find similar lessons online for free or for a lower price. Similarly, the stock alerts are decent, but may be hard to replicate. Traders need to be able to act quickly on the buy and sell alerts.
Due to the service’s price tag, Jason Bond Picks is best for investors who have more than $10,000 in their trading accounts (ideally $25,000+). Traders with smaller accounts are likely to have a difficult time recouping the subscription fees through the stock alerts.
Is the Service a Good Value?
Jason Bond’s core service, Jason Bond Picks, is available for $1,497 a year. This subscription fee will renew yearly if it is not canceled.
The millionaire roadmap program costs $9,999 and offers access to more of the resources provided by Raging Bull.
Both subscriptions are very expensive when compares to alternatives. If you are new to trading and have limited capital, you will likely find more value from lower priced programs.
How Does Jason Bond Picks Compare to Other Services from Raging Bull?
When we did our initial Jason Bond Picks review in 2017, Bond only offered a single service. Now, he offers a handful of services under the Raging Bull brand. Some of these services include Weekly Windfalls, Millionaire Roadmap, The Boardroom, and more.
So, which one is best?
Maybe I’m a sucker for the classics, but I believe stock market services do best with their core offerings. Many educators will realize the potential of the investment education space and try to expand their offerings to reach more clients. From my experience, the first product is always the best. For example, Motley Fool’s Stock Advisor is still the company’s top program and Tim Sykes’ monthly subscription is still his best offering.
Personally, I believe that Jason Bond Picks is the best service offered by Jason Bond. You get access to education, support, and trade alerts – what else do you need?
- Tons of trade ideas throughout the day
- Effective day trade stock scanner stream in chatroom
- Large video library of trading lessons
- Stable chatroom software connection
- Large chatroom is well organized with strict moderation
- The winning alerts can generate large percentage gains quickly
- Lots of ideas throughout the day in the chatroom and newsletter
- Pricing for all-inclusive Millionaire Roadmap program too expensive
- Constantly up-selling of MR program
- Risky penny stocks can leave you holding the bag when momentum vanishes
- Lack of itemized daily trades showing both winners and losers
- No trial period to test out the service
- Lots of noise in the chatroom at times
