Illusions of Wealth Book

Buy The book

In order to keep your wealth from being an illusion, you must possess the ability to adjust your portfolio as the economic and investment climates change. Buy-and- hold strategies can work with some assets, but should not be the way forward for all your holdings. Applying the common sense of this book can grant you control of your future and your wealth.

Inadequate education failed to teach us how to invest, so we relinquish control to advisors who may or may not have our best interests at heart. This book is written to bring you the awareness, confidence and insight necessary to conquer the future panics, crashes, and crises that will inevitably arise, and teach you how to profit whether the market is rising or falling. But most importantly, it is written to stand the test of time for generations to come, fulfilling the void left by our educational system. Isn’t it time you took control of your financial future?


After reading the book Illusions of Wealth, you should possess the ability to decipher what investing you can do on your own, which you need an advisor for and what’s mostly missing is how to profit in up and down markets.

The ETF Leveraged Trading Service provides you that missing link which allows you to take more control of trends and obtain even greater returns than you thought possible while controlling losses should they come. Check out the testimonials below and we’ll give you a 2 week free trial to see how our research can help you profit.

  • Doug provides a very strong service and I would highly recommend it for the niche that it is designed to fill. He is very much on top of the changes in these fast moving ETF's and is very quick to respond to client questions. A winner on all counts!

  • I began using Doug Eberhardt's ETF Research Trading Analysis service in April of this year before he brought the service over to Seeking Alpha. Up until a couple of years ago, I was a buy and hold investor, but the loss of bond earnings took away my ability to balance my portfolio. I then got into buying and selling various gold and silver ETF's. I had mixed results from that. I then learned about Doug's service through a fellow investor. I have achieved exceptional results from following his Trading Rules and ETF recommendations. Most of my trades have been within one day, although a few have carried over into two or more days of trading. Most of my trades have been less than $20,000, but none have exceeded $30,000 in total funds traded at any one time. During that time, I have earned almost $23,000 net of commissions and stop losses. Most of that has been in the last couple of months. The first few months I was more conservative as I was still learning to follow Doug’s rules. I have had a few losses from setting stop losses and having them executed, but that is part of minimizing losses. I have learned that if I study, learn and follow Doug's Trading Rules and his daily Trading Analysis recommendations, I can achieve outstanding returns and minimize losses. I highly recommend this service for those who are willing to commit the time.

  • Doug provides expert analysis in this irrational market. Doug helps his clients capitalize on trends while also reducing risk. His wit and sense of humor also help make this service fun for me. I'm not betting the farm on the ETF service but am enjoying it and I'm improving at it. The trading rules are requiring me to change a number of bad behaviors I've had in investing and old habits do die hard, but the more I follow them, the greater my success is. This is a great service for anyone that has the self discipline to follow Doug's rules. My recommendation is to follow a few pairs of contrasting ETFs (e.g., DWTI?UWTI, DGAZ/UGAZ, JNUG/JDST) and get good at these. Find some pairs you like and their success can lead to broadening the ones you want should you choose to.

  • This service assumes the subscriber possesses a certain knowledge of trading mechanics and financial markets, as well as emotional control. Given these, the subscriber can make consistent, large profits regardless of whether the market is up or down by following Doug’s trading rules and making the swing trades he recommends. He provides astute analysis of the markets from both a micro and macro point of view. Of course, as a human being, he occasionally makes mistakes. To his credit, he doesn’t marry any one point of view or trade, but adjusts fire quickly in the event that the price action proves his thesis wrong. Bottom line: Highly recommended, but you must follow his trading rules and pay close attention to his daily comments.

  • I was part of Doug Eberhardt's ETF trading service when he ran if from his website At that time Doug would write a detailed report each evening giving us what ETFs were likely to be the ones to watch the next time the market opened. He would give us economic data that could help us in our trading. Of course sometimes things could change overnight. When Doug's ETF trading service went to Seeking Alpha, the entire service took on a different format. It was a definite upgrade. Doug gives prices to look for and information that can determine which way the ETFs could go. He lets us know what happened overnight that could change the day's trades. When I first joined (at the end of this week, I will be in his service for two months), my goal was to make a modest $800 to $1,000 each month. My hope was to make the $1,000 and come out of the year ahead by $12,000. With still one week to go to complete my first two months, I have profited more than $3,263. I have exceeded my highest hopes. There is no way to make a profit on every ETF trade unless one could know the future, but with Doug's guidance and knowledge, I have found my odds of coming out ahead are far greater than trying to do day trading on my own. The amount of money I have invested in any ETF trade varies. The most I invested was $34,000, but most trades have been from $22,000 to as little as $6,000. Doug's service covers more than 40 ETFs. These ETFs can go long or short the following: oil, emerging markets, the Russian stock market, the Chinese stock market, major gold miners, junior gold miners, the S & P, the DOW, natural gas, treasuries and various others. I highly recommend that people check out the service that Doug provides, especially if you are interested in making money whether the market is going up or down. Raul G

  • I'm  lovin the new service. Excellent communication, information and trade alerts.  With your guidance I am hopeful to stay far away from the losers camp where I came from. So far so good. I really like your style and integrity.

  • My first trade with your service, I locked in JDST at 15% profit in less than 2 days! I was comfortable with that to get a win under my belt, although it may run further.

  • Most of my research and interest in the past has been in gold and silver, which is what led me to your ETF service and why I have mostly traded NUGT/DUST, but been reading the details you outlined on the UWTI call you made and it was phenomenal.  Going to broaden my scope outside of precious metals and start paying attention to all of the other sectors you are also covering in your ETF service.Very happy I signed up for your service.
