Want to trade the financial markets and make tons of money? Most of us do but unfortunately it’s easier said than done.
That’s what’s given rise to loads of courses, trading programs and signal services.
One of the players in the trading education field is InvestView.
They offer a comprehensive trading program which they say is aimed at both beginners and expert traders.
I checked them out to get the truth!
“Is InvestView Just Another Scam?”
Upon looking over the website the were a couple of things that yelled out scam:
- The headline “Learn 3 market beating strategies’
I don’t like it when such brave claims are made about outperforming the market without clear disclaimers. Outperforming the market is not easy and from my experience, you need to contiually evolve your strategy as opposed to simply learn a set of rules as this suggests.
- Their incredible year-to-date performance of 29.5% while the Dow has dropped 3.1%
It may be true but I cannot see that their performance has been independently verified.
By looking the domain statistics I could see that InvestView had been around for quite some time but unfortunately there we’re hardly any reviews or other people’s thoughts on the company so I decided to take the plunge myself and see how good their course actually was. A one-off payment of $9.95 got me access to their materials for a whole 14 days.
“Is It Worth The Money?”
InvestView sure do try to impress in the 14 days that you have to try them out.
I went through a lot of their course material (couldn’t possibly go through it all) and it was surprisingly good.
They offer a 5 module training course that covers all you need to know in order to trade stocks and options. They also cover some clever trading strategies which I can see being profitable (didn’t have full access during my trial).
I can imagine it being a lot to take in for the beginner but as you can re-watch the videos when you want, that will make it a lot easier.
The backend system lets you watch a prerecorded video or a live webinar. I only managed to check out one webinar and although the sound was a little rattly, it was good. If I was taking this course for real, I’d just prefer to watch the recorded versions.
I can imagine a lot of people getting significant value from being able to contact the Coach’s directly so I tested that out. I sent my Coach a question so I could analyse his response. The coach replied after around 30 hours which isn’t great but I guess it’d suffice. The coach went into a reasonable amount of detail but didn’t explain all the nitty gritty. But I guess he gave me enough so that I could go off and do my own research.
I cancelled my membership before the $9.95 trial ended in fear that I’d be hit with a mammoth cost – as I already have extensive training in the financial markets and don’t plan on trading for a living, I chose not to stay on and instead use the knowledge I gained to write this review.
“Just Tell Me If I Should Sign Up!”
I think you should sign up if:
- You want an all-in-one resource that will teach you how to trade stocks and options
- You want to learn online
- You have the dedication to actually watch all the videos and interact with the community so that you get maximum value
If you are unsure, or even if you are sure, I recommend you sign up on the $9.95 trial beforehand. That’ll help you truly understand if the course is for you. You can sign up for the trial here.
The course is reasonably priced in comparison to other in depth courses and the information is legit. Thankfully, the membership is paid monthly and you can cancel at any time. Although you do get hit with a $499 set up fee. I guess the free trial will help you decide if that’s worth it.
If you’re a beginner / intermediate in the financial markets and are looking for some guidance, InvestView is worth a try and they do have solid training materials. I wouldn’t recommend it to the seasoned and advanced traders as you’ll probably have covered a lot of the content.
If you think it might be the solution for you, sign up to their trial before splashing out so you can actually test it all for yourself. Access the trial here.
InvestView doesn’t make it to the top of the legitimacy chart as I prefer companies to be a little more prudent in their claims (see first two bullet points). However, they are a legit company that does offer valuable information:
