Most publishers of online and direct mail publications exaggerate their track records along with the upside potential offered by their publications and even use phony testimonials. We are different.
Making matters worse publishers editors and analysts qualifications are often made up or are wildly exaggerated. Some websites accept stock analysis from amateurs and even authors that refuse to reveal their identities. We are different.
Finding solid stock research can be incredibly hard for individual investors. Online paid and free investment newsletters and trading services are notorious — for their conflicts of interest. Many of the online paid and free investment newsletters, trading services are nothing more than companies that are sourcing investor names and contact information in order to generate revenues by renting their mailing lists to stock promoters. This means they spam their subscribers as often as 3 times a day with penny stock promotions designed to look like genuine research. We are different.
WallStreetRebel.com is different!

James Dale Davidson Editor of Strategic Investment s spent over 30 years as a specialist “crisis investor,” which has taught him that it’s always the hardworking … the savers … the taxpayers … the folks who “play by the rules” who suffer the most.
About a decade ago, he retired from the investment advisory world — but he returned to Strategic Investment - now published Wall Street Rebel, because he refused to sit idly by while Wall Street and Washington’s incompetence tore apart the lives of decent, hardworking Americans.
James has been warning investors about the dangers of a financial collapse for over 20 years. The first time was in his 1987 book, Blood in the Streets: Investment Profits in a World Gone Mad. Then he warned about America’s dire fiscal trends again in his 1994 book, The Great Reckoning: Protecting Yourself in the Coming Depression (which he wrote alongside former editor of The Times of London, Lord William Rees-Mogg). He has also written The Age of Deception and his new book The Breaking Point: Profit from the Coming Money Cataclysm
He’s also spent most of his adult life taking on an overreaching government. In 1974, he founded the National Taxpayers Union, which for 35 years has been protecting your right and that of every American to keep what they’ve earned. NTU is a nonprofit, nonpartisan citizen group whose (350,000) members work every day for lower taxes and smaller government at all levels. Later, he co wrote The Sovereign Individual in 1997 to help people take control of their lives and investments.
In September 1989, he also testified before the House Ways and Means Committee about the dangers of government sponsored enterprises (GSEs), such as Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. It was one of the first oversight hearings on GSEs.
Over the years, he’s also helped investors protect their wealth and profit by accurately forecasting some of the biggest political shifts of our time … events such as the death of the Soviet Union … the fall of the Berlin Wall … the rise of Islamic terrorism … and the recent bank bailouts. These predictions were deemed “impossible” when they were made. (Newsweek even described his forecasts as “an unthinking attack on reason.”) But subsequent events have proven him right.
James DiGeorgia: The founder the Gold & Energy Advisor and wunderkind, a self-made millionaire before he turned 21, turning a hobby of coin collecting he began at the age of seven into a multi-million dollar business while still a teenager. Remarkably, James launched his first rare coin business, Gem Coins, in Connecticut in 1976 in Danbury’s North Street shopping complex while he was still a junior in high school.
As the bull market in silver and gold from 1976 though 1980 gained momentum, James was able to generate over a million dollars in profits from less than $25,000 he obtained from his childhood collection. Graduating from Western Connecticut State University in 1980, completing a BA in Economics, he went to work over the following 11 years for some of the most prestigious precious metals and numismatic firms in the world.
James DiGeorgia has extensive experience in precious metals and the energy markets, and is considered one of the world’s foremost authorities in both sectors. James is the author of the bestselling book “The Global War for Oil” and “The New Bull Market in Gold: $1,000 Gold and the Many Ways to Profit from it”.
James is also the author of the “Insider’s Guide to Buying Gold, Silver and Rare Coins” and co wrote what many consider the definitive book on Options Trading “An Investor’s Guide to Understanding and Mastering Options Trading”.
James has been frequently quoted as an expert in The New York Times, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, Money magazine, The Chicago Tribune, Time Magazine, AP News, Bloomberg, Barron’s and literally dozens of mainstream online and traditional financial news publications.
