Not as bad as everyone says
Hi all. I as well spent alot of money with investools and I did learn quite a bit. However, what I found out was the more I know the worse I seem to do. I think the biggest problem people have is they think since they spent all this money that they will make money just because of that. It takes years and hard work to make it and I have been at this for years and have finally got to the point where I stop losing. lol. This has actually been my first profitable year so while it wasn't due to Investools they were definitely a part of the process.

Decent education for too high a price
Their education is decent but not worth the money as stated in the title. Look for other avenues to learn such as online classes or classes from Prop Firms.

Not for the faint of heart
Tremendous program but way overpriced. I signed up with IT over 2 years ago in March of 2009 and have been through all of the programs - Foundation, Basic Options, Advanced Options and Advanced Technicals. At the time this program was called the PHD program and cost around $24,000. While I do believe that I received a huge amount of education over the last two years and much of that education is paying off now, this is not for everyone. This education requires a huge time commitment and many of the people that signed up at the same time I did never followed through with any of the education they received.

While the program costs a huge amount of capital you basically get from the program what you put into it. I was able to devote 10-12 hours a week studying the material and watching the massive amount of online classes and webinars that they provide on a daily basis. I feel as if you do not have this much time to devote to the material, this would not work for you as the cost would be too overwhelming. Also, with the large up front capital that is required this would not be for someone with a small amount of capital to trade with as it would take such a long period of time to recover your costs in the program.

One excellent benefit of the program is you have full time M-F access to the coaches via a simple telephone call. Any question that you have at any time just requires a phone call and you can get a real trader to answer any and all questions you may have...and these are very good, advanced traders.

All this being said, there are cheaper ways to get into the program by just starting with some of the foundation courses but I am not sure what these cost at the current time.

This is a massive educational course and if I had to do it all over again, I probably would, but would not recommend this high of a program to someone what has a trading account smaller than a few hundred thousand as the time it would take to build up a smaller account would take a long time.

A bit pricey but you DO learn
I am a current Investools student currently finishing their Basic Options course. I have completed their Investing Foundation course this past year, and the other courses they offer are Advanced Options, Advanced Technical Analysis, Forex and Futures.

I have to agree somewhat with some of the other Investools reviewers here that Investools can be a bit pricey at times, and it seems that a particular course can greatly range in price. For example, it only cost me $250 for their Investing Foundation course but I have heard and met others who were charged in the thousands for the same course months prior than me. I don’t know if Investools made some changes or if my negotiation skills are that good. The last comment I will make about their pricing is that the material that they cover can be learn and taught from other resources such as books and other products for a fraction of the price they charge.

Each course that I have taken I found very beneficial. You are taught by watching videos, reading about topics that are present both technical and in layman terms, taking multiple-choice quizzes and by participating in workshops, webinars, virtual coaching sessions and breakout rooms. I find the virtual coaching sessions and breakout rooms to be of great value because you get your questions answered and you learn from what other ask as well. The difference between virtual coaching sessions is that it is one on one between you and a coach while in a breakout room it is one coach and more than one person.

If you are completely new to trading then I would recommend you to take their courses because you do learn. If you know what you are doing or a seasonal veteran then it is best to pass on them.

Extremely overpriced. Mediocre.
My dad took the Beginner - Advanced Investools classes and got the seminar DVDs. Since he never did anything with them, I went ahead and watched them. It was nice to refresh everything I already had learned in one spot, but it was hardly a world-class education - most of that information can be found for free on the web or by reading online. Definitely not worth the thousands that they charge for it!

Investools
When you see the infomercials telling you that Investools is coming to our town lock the doors. or should I say lock your wallet.

I am suspicious of companies that are not up front on their pricing and promote the good life and trading is easy any one can do it. NOT! .

I eventually went on to learn options but not from them. At the time I went it cost $39.000.00 for the PHD level option trader course. This was not known until the end of the course I went to.

They do have good instructors but boy their marketing and business model needs a serious makeover

You Get What You Pay For!
Hello everyone! Investools is a good program to go through if one is absolutely new to trading. The program is expensive, but is very thorough and gives a solid foundation in almost all types of markets and trades. The course is divided into a foundation course, a basic options course, an advanced technical analysis course, and a few more in-depth courses that relate to other sorts of trading like futures trading. Also, workshops and chat rooms are available too. Investools also grants access to a paperMoney account. This is a simulator that helps you practice going in and out of trades on an actual thinkorswim platform without risking your own money.

My favorite part of the Investools is the access to the Investor Toolbox. The Investor Toolbox is an absolute Godsend. It virtually completes all forms of fundamental analysis for you and reports it to you in a sidebar that is really easy to read and understand. Also, the Investor Toolbox has customizable searches that helps you find already fundamentally strong stocks to invest in within most industries. The Toolbox also has something called a Big Chart which gives you the best performing industries in seconds. It shows where institutional money is flowing and which industries is getting more of the money. Also, the Toolbox can help identify industries and stocks that are doing well in bearish markets with another tool called the Best/Worst Industry Search.

Investools makes trading a lot more simple. After using Investools, I don't even have to worry about top-down or fundamental analysis anymore because Investools helps out with that so much. Technical analysis on the other hand is a bit trickier because of timing, but Investools helps out with it also. Investools offers the use of a program called ProphetCharts which is great for technical analysis because it provides buy/sell indicators that greatly help in identifying when is a good time time to buy/sell.

All in all, Investools has made trading much more understandable and doable for me. If you're willing to put in the effort with Investools, you will not be sorry. Good luck with your trading endeavors!

Not sure
I signed up for investools before they merged with TDAmeritrade, and I like TDAmeritrade as a broker, and I think they are a decent company. So hopefully Investools will completely change now that TDAmeritrade has taken them over. because before they were really bad.

If you want to learn about the stock market and don't know anything and you need someone to keep you on track, they do give you a lesson plan and then help you work through it.

and of course they charge you a lot for this service.

needs improvement
Investool, Td Ameritrade and think or swim are basically in one umbrella. I use TD and think or swim and have attended Investools class. the class is educational especially for beginners. They will impress you with tools that can predict the stock movements. the educational value is pretty good but the application and execution is not very helpful. Program cost a lot of money and in the end , you still feel lost about trading. Needs more support they need to teach how to apply and execute the information learned in class.

Most important,, stop offering class after clients says NO MORE.....
