About Money Morning
Based out of Baltimore, MD, Money Morning is a financial news website that claims to provide cutting edge tips and expert opinions about investments, new venture ideas, the global economy, and more. Along with their in-depth analysis, Money Morning claims to provide you with actionable information—guides, or “takeaways”—that you can use in the real world to help you reach financial independence.
With more than 165 years of combined industry experience, Money Morning is operated by six financial and investment executives, including Keith Fitzgerald, Sid, Riggs, and Dr. Kent Moors. As such, according to the company’s website, “We don't just give you the news: We also tell you what that news means, and explain why it's important to you… We tell you how to use this information both to profit, and to protect your wealth…”
Money Morning’s basic membership is free, which includes fresh, newsletter-based emails five days per week (Monday – Friday). With a free subscription you’ll receive access to a lot of content, though the site’s premium service provides you with even more.
Types of Money Morning Accounts
If you would like to try Money Morning before committing, they do provide a free e-newsletter five days per week. However, keep in mind that you’ll receive an occasional promo about their premium service, which the company claims to do in order to keep the “free” information free. Also, despite the type of information you’ll find in the Money Morning emails, the company claims that it is only a news site, and that it does not provide official personal investment advice.
To unlock all of the information on the site however, you’ll need to sign up for their premium content, known as “My Private Briefing.” Here, you’ll receive additional content from even more financial experts and gurus, as well as more detailed market and investment analyses. Taken together, this means you’ll be better able to digest and apply the information you receive.
Money Morning’s Private Briefing
For $7.99 per month, you can gain access to Money Morning’ Private Briefing service, which claims to provide members with access to more than $33,000 worth of the “best of the best” investment advice. In this service, the company taps the talents of a wide variety of experts, including Keith Fitz-Gerald, Martin Hutchinson, Shah Gilani, and Kent Moors, who provide “high-end investment analysis and advice in their area of specialization.” The service provides top picks from industry leading publications such as:
- Money Map Report ($129/yr)
- Energy Advantage ($199/yr)
- Geiger Index ($2,900/yr)
- Radical Technology Profits ($3,195/yr)
- Capital Wave Forecast ($3,500/yr)
- Real Asset Returns ($2,900/yr)
- Strike Force ($2,950/yr)
- Energy Inner Circle ($2,999/yr)
- Permanent Wealth Investor ($1,995/yr)
- Shah Gilani's DealBook ($3,000/yr)
- Small-Cap Rocket Alert ($4,000/yr)
- Upcoming: The Nova-X Report ($299/yr)
- Upcoming: Ernie Tremblay's "FDA" service ($5,000/yr)
But remember this: According to Bill Palaton, the Executive Editor of Money Morning, you’ll only receive top picks—not all the ideas contained in these publications—as this is something others pay thousands of dollars for. And in the end, this wouldn’t be ethical, or good business practices.
Is Money Morning a Scam?
Based on our research, it appears that Money Morning is operated by some of the highest-level gurus in the industry, and is focused on providing real world, cutting edge investment information. They don’t show any indication of a “get rich quick” scheme, and are upfront with the fact that all investments contains an element of risk, and that you should invest wisely.
Money Morning claims that whether you’re just starting out or are a long time investor, the information they provide is relevant to people from all walks of life. However, they only provide the information; you’re the only one who will determine how successful you’ll be.
Bottom line: For only $7.99 per month, and with all the signs of a legitimate enterprise, Money Morning definitely seems to be worth your time. If you still have questions, you can always give the company a call directly at 888-384-8339.

Terrible investment. To me it looks like all they do is watch for stocks that surge and then tell you to buy them after they have already went up. I made about 5% in a years time. I can do that by myself without paying them thousands of dollars.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Destructive fear mongering
This website is evidently run by depraved people. I suspect by right wing nut jobs who are willing to take the whole country (and world) down to win an argument. I'm not sure what the end game is – at best, their motive is seeking anarchy, at the most repulsive end of the motive scale, they are simply trying to manipulate the stock market to make money at millions of people great expense. Not far behind in the awful motive scale is that they are seeking to make the current government look bad by triggering financial collapse.

Geiger Index is a scam
I would give them an infinite negative review if I could. I followed their advice and after several months it became clear that I would never even recoup my subscription costs, let alone a decent return on my money. When I called to cancel my subscription, they would not do it. I called my credit card company Discover and they issued my a temporary credit. Thought I would at least get a refund on my subscription cost. However, as Geiger blew them off with no response and the fact that I have taken 5 months to come to the conclusion that I have been defrauded,
Discover reversed my credit and blew me off as well. A POX on all those involved at both Geiger and Discover. I intend to post this on every site that I can to try and protect others from being stolen from like I was.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
