What Our Members and Fans Love About the ARMR Experience

start quote icons

I was a profitable trader prior to joining the ARMR Report.  Since joining, I have learned from Bret to high grade my trades which has improved my win ratio and profitability.  I think both new traders and experienced traders can benefit from Bret's experience and systems.  Plus, trading can be a lonely activity.  It is nice to have a group of traders with whom to chat and share ideas. 

- Paul D.

start quote icons

I have been a subscriber to many newsletters or other services and was never really satisfied with them because there was always a lack of profound insight in why and when to buy or sell stocks. What I wanted to learn is to get in the head of a professional trader. The ARMR report is just doing that, it's education from a pro, what more can you wish?

- Henk K.

start quote icons

I can’t thank Bret enough for the disciplines I’ve learned from 3 years with the ARMR REPORT. His 30 years of experience is invaluable, and so is our desk of analysts.  If you want to shorten the learning curve to building net worth, this is it.

- Dustin P.

start quote icons

I've been following Bret since May 2019 when he was beginning as a podcaster and I was even greener as a trader. He has taught me many things but there are two that I always follow. First, buy weakness in the midst of strength and second, "Protect Capital First" and "Capture Upside Second".

- Ken V.

start quote icons

Bret is always there when you have a question about a stock, chart, idea, style of investing, etc. Which is great. What I like most is he teaches/learns at the same time and shares what works and owns what doesn't. The #1 thing I have learned is capital protection first.

- Kevin G.

start quote icons

I’ve learned so much from Bret since I joined in 2020.... Before I started as an ARMR Insider ... I did not have the knowledge or planning ability to grow my portfolio.... with Bret's extensive background, experience, and amazing ability to teach, I now trade each day following a … professional step-by-step [and] have the confidence to trade like a pro in up and down markets. Bret's knowledge and ability to convey that knowledge with patience …. is not something that can be taught in college or university, it is beyond that.

- Stephen A.

start quote icons

Since I joined ARMR Report and Bret 2+ years ago my trading and discipline with my trades has increased every month. Bret’s experience with trading … gives me the structure I need ... to be successful. I am a busy doctor so his research in conjunction with ... ARMR Insiders’ saves me a lot of time [and] the fact that Bret is always a phone call/message away to answer questions ... gives me added comfort in my trades.

- Nima S.

start quote icons

One thing I've learned over my two years with Bret is that investing is a journey, not a race. Most important thing is to choose your guide wisely. Many fake investment gurus out there. I know my strengths and weaknesses as an investor, and I needed The ARMR Investing Way to show me how to protect capital.

- Erez S.

start quote icons

I am being exposed to information and insider research I never could have found by myself. Learning from Bret I have been better able to understand market machinations and the reality behind price action that comes from Bret's long experience as an active trader…. The professionalism, positivity, and engagement of the live trading desk community is something I cannot overstate.

- Derek M.

start quote icons

My first thoughts [about Bret] were “incredibly knowledgeable and honest”. From technical things like buy triggers, utilization of VWAPS, to position size importance and stop loss discipline I have had the best trading of my amateur career since January. What Bret provides is special and I appreciate the opportunity to be learning from him daily.

- Anukool C.

start quote icons

What attracted me to this group was Bret’s mantra of “Protect capital first, capture upside second.”.... Applying this discipline has allowed me to protect my portfolio during the wild swings and treacherous collapse of the current market.... I’m grateful to the ARMR report for showing me how to take emotion out of decisions by following a well thought out process that’s essential to successful long-term investing.

- Lina K.

start quote icons

Bret's technical expertise and experience provides unique advantage, and the Insider group/team has lots of camaraderie. The most important changes and outcomes I have experienced are better capital preservation and growth through Bret's unique and powerful risk management tools and becoming a better trader and investor by following Bret on the live trading desk. He coaches you to protect the money you have and grow your wealth.

- Richard S.

start quote icons

Seeing Bret’s real time execution and emotional management has helped me learn to execute significantly better. His style of management has given me ideas which I can lean into based on my risk tolerance. Bret’s leadership plus the virtual hedge fund of experienced and motivated traders provides important knowledge that allows me to navigate ever-changing market conditions, focus on leading groups, and most importantly, build alpha!

- Miguel B.

start quote icons

Before joining The ARMR Report I was making good buys yet watching my profits disappear. I was looking for a better means of managing my trades.... Risk management is a learned behavior and Bret’s discipline for preserving capital balanced with high probability investment decisions is just a few of the many things I value in being a member.

- Noel V.

Just, wow. So much money and good people.

- Chad B.

Bret's service is amazing. It has a great system unlike any other I've found. The ARMR Report  caters to any investing or trading styles and gives you great actionable information and risk management from Bret and the other ARMR members. I've learned so much and done much better with it! 

- Gabe O.

I'm loving the educational and down-to-earth talks from Bret. It gives me good guidance on the overall-market condition, tips-and-tricks and perseverance when the market is a bit disappointing.

- Sim B.

Bret has taught me how to be patient and not try to force my will on the market. I also appreciate Bret's take on precious metals. They will have their day! I appreciate all you do!

- Jesse A.

Bret is a wonderful adviser .... His knowledge and skills work well. In my past year of membership I've learned the most from his teaching.

- Jas X.

Unlike the other talking heads, Bret doesn't tell us what to do, but rather what to do whether [the market] either goes up or down.

- Jim J.

start quote icons

Bret has taught me to be a disciplined trader. Patiently waiting for setups to develop and the use of stops to protect capital have been a valuable asset.

- Don W.

start quote icons

I love Bret's authenticity. He shares .... things he is doing - whether it is things on his watchlist, or trades he has initiated. Many of his trades are VERY successful! I hope to subscribe once I can get the funds together! He is THAT good!

- Patrick O.

start quote icons

It is not only Bret's 30 years of experience with ARMR rules and investing strategies but also his stories and anecdotes that intrigue me. I have learned to protect my capital: buying at the right time and by using stoploss. I use the Risk Monitor as a guide for both the Swedish market the US market as well as pension funds.

- Hakan P.

start quote icons

As a new investor I am so grateful for Bret’s guidance. In addition to the education on market jargon that I have gleaned from Bret the thing that struck me most is the discipline of his methodology that separates human emotion from getting on the way! I still have much to learn and look forward to the journey ahead with you Bret.

- Raman R.

start quote icons

From Bret I've learned to focus on preserving capital. The ARMR Report information helps me be a better trader because of the algos. I call it 'no emotion, just be a machine.'

- John P.

start quote icons

What I really learned from Bret is about how to manage my own capital managing the risk. Now, the ARMR risk monitor (red, yellow, green) drives my investment decisions, and truly saves me a lot of money in the last two years following his risk rules. Another big lesson from him is not to be emotional, be patient and put capital to work when the reward/risk equation is in our favor.

- Josep D.

start quote icons

The most important thing Bret has taught me and that I'm grateful for is keeping calm during the ups and downs of the market: a significant aspect of trading psychology. His honesty through the process is one that I admire truly. I was new to the world of stocks before starting with Bret and I have come a long way with his wonderful trading methods and techniques.
- Bhavan B.

Bret is a seasoned investor and seems genuinely interested in helping us all to become better traders. I am a beginner in this stock market adventure and Bret makes room and content for EVERYONE.… He embodies sincerity, integrity, and kindness. Bret has helped me learn to be a better trader by providing a safe venue for beginners to learn and ask questions.

I found Bret on YouTube over a year ago and was immediately drawn into his unique ability to communicate concepts/thoughts. Many are successful traders, but so very few can translate what they know into easy to follow, actionable steps. Simply put, Bret is an excellent teacher.
I have already improved my strategies that I will no doubt continue to refine. I look forward to my continued growth as a member of his virtual hedge fund.

- Craig M.

start quote icons

Bret is a wise person with a good moral compass. The best thing I learned from him is to ‘Trade with No Ego.’ ARMR Rule #6: “Create a strategy and execute and follow through that strategy to completion, no matter what is going on in the market”. This is the truest but the hardest principle to follow when trading and investing.

- Kathleen T.

The information that comes from the ARMR family is exactly what I like: it will put you on a stock that is theoretically ready to appreciate and so no wasted time waiting for movement of the asset. Here you will find some of the best timely fundamental and technical analysis in a concise and easy to understand format.

- John A.

start quote icons

I have followed Bret and his ARMR approach for over a year.... I tune in for his sage advice. His premise, to preserve capital, means his advice is cautious - never reckless. Bret is a flat-out expert on reading chart patterns [and] provides me with the necessary macro and micro analysis. By the close of the market [one day] my account value had increased by 12.16%. Mr. Rosenthal, your approach to the markets is golden.

- Jay N.

start quote icons

Bret helps you time the buy ... but more importantly when to hit the sell button to preserve capital ... priceless!

- Victoria N.

start quote icons

After finding Bret on YouTube, I thought he was refreshing and honest. What I found most impressive is that the ARMR community really is a body of shared ideas with a humble and very knowledgeable leader in Bret. He shows us daily that even he can keep learning and making adjustments. Thank you, Bret!

- Brian E.

start quote icons

One thing that Bret re-confirmed is that many of these journalists, broadcasters, etc., are just noise. I mean, I used to think, "Hey, that makes sense", only to have the market go the other way on my trade. Additionally, his speaking about entry points have helped me from chasing stocks, although I still do, but I'm much more constrained. Another thing he has taught me is to stop a loss. It's helped me free money. I like his idea of preserving money.

- Wesley T.

Former hedge fund manager | Husband | Father | Boat Captain | NY Rangers Fan

I’m going to teach you how to invest your money by showing you the four portfolios and strategies I use to manage my own personal assets.

My love of designing technologically driven trading systems began in the 90s in New York City where The Rosenthal Group managed one of the most successful private client businesses in the country. Featured in The Winner’s Circle and Expert Trading Systems: Successful Traders Share Their Secrets, my vision always included a desire to teach. Today, I share 35+ years of investing success with aspiring portfolio managers on a quest to accelerate how to make money trading stocks.



Your ARMR membership is backed by our 100% ARMR Excitement Assurance:

For seven days access all the ARMR Insider Only website content. Plus, join the live trading desk and actively participate in and explore all available threads. If you’re not blown away by the quality of the resources, community, and mentoring we’ll refund 100% of your investment.


We uphold a dedicated adherence to these concepts both on and off the desk….

It all begins with a devotion to being different. You’ll never hear us offer hot stock tips, ideas that you can gamble with, or sensationalized predictions.

Instead, we focus on being honest, reading and reacting to what the market tells us, and getting on the right side of statistics and probabilities. That’s all.

In a world that has too much distracting and noisy hype, we promise to overdeliver in ways that help you hear you.

100% Commitment To Your Education

The only way to rise to your highest level of portfolio management is by continually learning and owning what you learn. That’s why we’re constantly creating new videos, playbooks, notes, strategies, and processes to support the expansion of your understanding, knowledge, and skill.

(Almost 24/7) Constant Connection

You need to know what you need to know when you need to know it. Get all your questions answered in a timely manner so that you can make those critical trading decisions. We have multiple streams of access through email, Slack, and livestream comments so that you can receive support about any (ARMR) thing just about any time.

Total Transparency (Every Day)

See what I’m doing every minute of every trading session so that you can follow along and adapt the process to your personal trading approach. By dropping comments on the live trading desk and talking live so that you hear my thought process, I’ll explain what I’m doing and why, plus coach you toward making your own decisions about how to apply the concepts in your portfolio.

Managing Your Mindset

Successful trading requires more than algos; it requires the steadfast ability to minimize fear, greed, and ego while maximizing logic, reason, and the absence of emotion. With 35+ years of successful investing experience I’ve developed methods to help reduce the interference of ego and emotion and I’ll be daily sharing it all on the desk with you so that you develop your own approach to recognizing how to stop emotions fro m hijacking your trades.

Endless Innovation

The world is ever-changing. Your trading style and approach will be too. In ARMR land we know how important it is to continually evolve our platform, information, materials, program, and overall experience so that you keep evolving too. We’re dedicated to continually reviewing protocols and deliverables to make sure that all aspects of the ARMR Report exponentially add value in ways that help you reach higher and higher levels of portfolio management success.


You bet! At ARMR Report we’re meticulous about covering all the information necessary all the time.

Review the info below and then if you still have questions reach out to us directly.

What does the ARMR Report do?

The ARMR Report (Algorithmic Risk Management Research) began as Bret’s quest to uplevel his own trading technique. The ARMR that he put into his own approach to portfolio management brought solid results, if he could only get himself to stick to the protocols. He began sharing the proprietary actionable information with a public audience to challenge himself to more completely follow through with the ARMR plan for how to invest in the stock market.

What you have access to here is a behind-the-scenes approach to how to trade through the perspective of a seasoned hedge fund and portfolio manager. More than that, you have access to watch Bret trade his own personal assets. Which means: What you will learn through the ARMR experience is intensely personal. While Bret manages money for clients, he also runs four portfolios that contain his own money. These form the foundation of all Bret’s trading strategies and techniques.

What the ARMR Report does, then, is two-fold:

  1. brings you inside the mind of a successful money manager with 35+ years experience
  2. trains you to learn how to approach trading the same way as professional portfolio managers
How can the ARMR Report help me become a better portfolio manager?

The ARMR Report Live Trading Desk Experience is designed to improve your skills as a manager of your own capital. Specifically, all ARMR services focus on two essential broad elements:

1) preservation of capital/risk management
2) capturing upside/creating alpha

Through the creation of a hedge fund-like live trading desk (delivered through the Slack platform) the ARMR Report program offers individual investors a specific and focused mentorship-led, community-based, real-time environment in which to access the power of institutional investing as an individual investor.

What does that really mean?

  • You gain daily access to proprietary actionable information that allows you to invest wisely
  • You learn professional processes for fundamental research so that you choose sound stock ideas and only put them in your portfolio when they have been thoroughly vetted
  • You follow algorithmic trading strategies to take the guess work out of entries and exits
  • You engage risk management protocols so that you know how to protect yourself from yourself (and how to protect capital and profit)

Additionally, the membership portion of the ARMR website houses supportive and educational resources developed and delivered to assist you in upleveling trading skills through video, audio, and written training materials.

To learn more about the ARMR Investing Way and how it can help you become a better portfolio manager.

How does the ARMR Report live trading desk work?

Located via your Slack login, the live trading desk is available to all members 24/7/365. Meaning, you have access to your peers and to posting questions, research, ideas, etc., at any time that suits your schedule.

On trading days, the ARMR Experience begins 8:30am Eastern (GMT –4) with the ARMR Morning Meeting livestream, in which Bret offers an overview assessment of current market conditions, shares technical analysis of chart patterns, reviews the ARMR Risk Monitor, ARMR Portfolios, and any general training he deems relevant to prepare you for the upcoming trading session.

At this time Bret also responds in real-time to questions submitted by ARMR members so that each individual portfolio manager can customize an individual trading approach.

Shortly before the 9:30am Eastern opening bell, Bret opens the ARMR Trading Desk livestream (which streams all day until the closing bell). In this forum you have access to watch Bret trade, hear his instructions and directions, and ask questions that Bret answers in real-time so that efficient trading decisions can be made, plus continuous coaching to further develop skills, strategy, and trading protocols.

The ARMR Trading Desk Slack platform is open 24/7/365 and contains several threads to support your experience.

We’ve designed the live trading desk to clearly demarcate how to find the information you need. The desk has six active threads/channels to support you in various aspects of trading, including:

ARMR Education – This thread is where Bret drops teachable moments, answers to ARMR Pro Member questions and the like.
ARMR Investing Way - This thread is home to the ARMR Morning Meeting, Captain's Note and other posts related to the ARMR approach to all types of trading (day, swing, investing).
ARMR Portfolio Updates – Only Bret updates this thread so you’ll see the latest movements in his portfolios and can use the ideas as inspiration for how to create, manage, and trade your portfolio(s).
ARMR Live Pro Desk – All the trading action happens in this thread. Drop your ideas, questions, comments, and trades for real-time conversation with others.
ARMR Insider Ideas – Want to know what your fellow traders are investigating? Check out this thread for fresh thoughts on possible stock picks.
ARMR Random – Got other subjects to discuss? This final thread is for any topics not necessarily related to trading (this can include personal anecdotes and images, research ideas, news commentary, etc).

Watch this video for a quick overview of how to navigate and interact in Slack:

Your typical day on the desk would look like this (all times in Eastern | GMT -4):
8:30am ARMR Morning Meeting Livestream
9:25am ARMR Trading Desk Livestream begins
10:30am General Market Update
11:30am Trading Update
1:30pm General Update
2:30pm General Update
3-4pm Live Commentary
4pm ARMR Trading Desk Livestream ends

During the times between scheduled updates the desk is very active: each thread contains conversations and updates from Bret and ARMR Members. Plus, Bret trades, compiles research, and works on trade-related resources.

In between scheduled updates you will:

  1. See Bret’s live screen so that you can watch the trades he’s doing, the research he’s exploring, and the whiteboard development he’s working on.
  2. Hear Bret interview management if he has a call scheduled
  3. Listen to conference calls and hear Bret’s interpretation of information
  4. Ask questions and hear his replies directly to you through coaching and analysis geared toward helping you make trading decisions

The ARMR Trading Desk Slack platform is open for all trading sessions plus after hours so that you can communicate with your peers, plan and prepare, learn and query at any time of day or night.

The ARMR Trading Desk Livestream is open for all trading sessions with the exception from time to time that Bret may be off the desk for vacation or extenuating circumstances.

How much money do I need to have in my account to benefit from being an ARMR Insider?

Whatever you have is the perfect amount for you. Traditional hedge funds have minimum requirements but that’s part of the beauty of the ARMR Report virtual hedge fund: You bring any amount of capital you want to invest – maintained in your own private account (on any platform where you feel comfortable trading) - and we provide the environment in which you learn to protect capital and capture upside through mentorship, education, information, training, algorithmic support, and community connection.

How much trading experience do I need to find value as an ARMR Insider?
Your level of trading experience is unique to you. If you are new to managing your own capital then you will find a kind, compassionate and educational atmosphere ready to support you and shorten your learning curve with direct strategies and simple trainings designed to help you elevate basic trading skills. If you are a more experienced trader then you will discover unique, advanced strategies for elegantly expanding your trading approach based on Bret’s 35+ years of trading experience as both a money manager for high net worth individuals, plus ten years as a hedge fund manager.
I am not familiar with Slack, is it easy to use?
Very easy! Think of the Slack live trading desk as a form of community text messaging. If you are familiar with posting to social media you will immediately feel comfortable here. And, if you are new to this kind of posting, you will immediately discover how easy it is through our video tutorial.

Watch this video for a quick overview of how to navigate and interact in Slack:

What other resources are available to me as an ARMR Insider?

In addition to the live events (Morning Meeting, Trading Desk, Monthly Macro Meeting, Trading Psychology Masterclass), you also have access to all of this:

  • 4 model portfolios (Bret runs his own capital following four different styles of management [for diversification]: Growth, ETFs, Dividend, and the Indexes with approaches that you can apply to your own portfolio)
  • whiteboard research (because every idea should be thoroughly vetted before you put it into your portfolio)
  • execution strategies (our risk monitors identify entry and exit points through proprietary algorithms)
  • exclusive resources and trainings (covering a range of topics that include technical analysis, risk management, and effective trading strategies)
  • proprietary investing rules (Bret has written three manuals for day trading, swing trading and long-term investing that cover all kinds of scenarios)
  • Captain’s Note (Bret writes this market-focused update every morning to helpy you focus your mind and organize your thoughts around current market trends and conditions that will affect the trading day, including where he plans to place his attention to best protect capital and capture alpha)

Watch this video to learn more about where to find these resources and how to use them:

Do I have to be on the desk all/every day to benefit from being an ARMR Insider?

Absolutely not! We have many members who have day jobs and only access the desk at certain times for scheduled updates (i.e. Morning Meeting 8:30am, 10:30am, 11:30am update, 1:30, 2:30, 3-4pm). Slack also affords you the option of setting up notifications so that you will receive messages whenever Bret updates the portfolios, which will efficiently help you execute your own trading decisions. Additionally, the Morning Meeting replay is available immediately after the livestream recording; this allows you to access the daily preparation at a time convenient to you.

We have several members who have day jobs -- they're not on the desk for the full trading session either.

However, they report receiving a lot of actionable benefits from:

  • direct access to ask Bret questions at their convenience
  • receiving the ARMR Morning Meeting replay and notes prior to the trading day
  • submitting their stock ideas to the ARMR algos for information related to entries and exits
  • setting Slack notifications so they get updates on market information and trading execution as it happens on the desk
  • access to a full library of company research, whiteboard information, trading strategies, checklists, cheat sheets and videos to strengthen your personal trading approach

Bret recently addressed this very question in an ARMR Week in Review livestream. You can watch a short clip here.

I don’t day trade, will I still find value on the live trading desk?
You bet! In fact, we don’t always day trade either. The ARMR Investing Way utilizes three strategies: day trading, swing trading, and long-term investing. As the portfolio manager of your own capital, you decide which strategies to apply in your portfolio.
How long does a subscription last?
Subscriptions are annual. Renewals occur automatically unless you specifically request to end your membership.
Do I have to renew each year?

Subscriptions automatically renew unless you specify otherwise in writing via email ( or standard mail (425 Greenwich Cir, #107, Jupiter, FL 33458).

Can my money be refunded?

When you join the ARMR Report membership program you enter an exclusive world of information, training, and camaraderie. Behind the scenes we work tirelessly to deliver a meaningful and useful experience for you. And we expect you to be responsible for your own actions to engage with the content, participate in the community, and academically profit from the environment that ARMR offers. We see this as a collaboration between your desire to learn how to become a better portfolio manager and our dedication to help you do that as much as we possibly can. As such, we do not offer refunds. However, we do recognize that from time to time extenuating circumstances may arise and (since we are a reasonable crew) we reserve the right to assess individual situations at our sole discretion.

Do you offer a free trial?

At the ARMR Report we do things differently. Rather than give you something small like a free trial we give you a big experience backed by an even bigger promise…

Your ARMR membership comes with our 100% ARMR Excitement Assurance: If you’re not completely stoked about being an ARMR Insider we’ll refund 100% of your membership investment, zero questions asked (and no fake ‘exit interviews’ really designed to wrestle you into staying).

So, it works like this:

The moment you become an ARMR Insider you receive full access to all the ARMR Insider Only website content (ARMR Whiteboard, ARMR Portfolios, ARMR Risk Monitor, ARMR Playbooks, ARMR Videos, etc.).

Plus, you receive full access to join the live trading desk (and all of its threads from education to investing ideas to the all-day trading livestream).

You actively participate in and explore all of this (guided by our ARMR Cheat Sheet, overview video, and personalized onboarding process) so you get up to speed quickly and benefit from the insane amount of proprietary actionable information from Day One.

Then, if by Day Seven you’re not blown away by the quality of the resources, community, and mentoring we’ll refund 100% of your investment the day you ask us to. (Or the next business day if you request it after our office hours of 10am - 5pm Eastern.)

Do you offer a money back guarantee?
Yep, as a matter of fact, we do:

From the moment you become an ARMR Insider you have seven (7) full days to explore all of the resources, live experiences, community, and support that we offer.

This includes:

Full access to all the ARMR Insider Only website content (ARMR Whiteboard, ARMR Portfolios, ARMR Risk Monitor, ARMR Playbooks, ARMR Videos, etc.).

Plus, full access to join the live trading desk (and all of its threads from education to investing ideas to the all-day trading livestream).

And you can explore all of this quickly when guided by our ARMR Cheat Sheet, overview video, and personalized onboarding process.

Experiment with it all and then, if by Day Seven you’re not blown away by the quality of the resources, community, and mentoring we’ll refund 100% of your investment the day you ask us to. (Or the next business day if you request it after our office hours of 10am - 5pm Eastern.)

What else should I know about being an ARMR Insider?

You probably already know this but let’s review the basic ARMR DISCLAIMER:

All of ARMRreport, our trades, strategies, and news coverage are based on our opinions alone and are only for educational purposes. You should not take any of this information as guidance for buying or selling any type of investment or security. I am only sharing my biased opinion based off of speculation and personal experience. An individual trader's/investor's results may not be typical and may vary from person to person. It is important to keep in mind that there are risks associated with investing in the stock market and that one can lose all of their investment. Thus, trades/investments should not be based on the opinions of others but by your own research and due diligence.
