This is the second time that I have tried Vestorvest. It is a well developed trading information system but at its heart it is designed to gather in customer subscription fees at higher rates. The basic information in very one sided with their ratings designed to enhabce the customers investment decisions. At the time of this review, August 12, 2012, Berkshire Hathaway is only rated .95 on Realative Safety is an example. 1.0 is the base line. There are many terrible credits rated higher, mush higher, but I quibble. The maiin problem is that therir strategies to work, you must… Read more »

I have used them for 5 years and If you really like to create your own searches, this product is for you. For example, you can pick from over 100’s of possibilities, using existing searches and modifying them just by adding another parameter. Then, you can have it alert you by filtering a “watchdog”. Their market timing is enhanced by a “green light or red light ” kicker so you don’t enter late into a move. Saves me $1,000’s as no trade is probably the best trade. Charting is excellent in real time, as you can quick screen which then… Read more »

VectorVest keeps showing strategies that works great in the past. They find the time period it works best and uses it to fool people in their strategy of the week. It is like saying if you bought the lottery with the following numbers last week, you would have made 10000% profit. After using VV for over 10 years, I have not seen better performance compared to buying multiple mutual funds. If you have the stomach for 40% drawdown, then you can make money on good years with strategies that buys stocks less than $5. For a prudent investor you may… Read more »

As an investor for over 30 years I can tell you vector vest is a total scam. don’t buy into their ridiculous claims… not worth the money. You would be much better off going with IBD, gorilla trades, or even zacks…

VectorVest is one of the best systems you can use for market timing and analyzing your stocks. VectorVest is a system that give you unbiased guidance and powerful tools help you make money in the stock market, but it’s not a get rich quick scheme. You can try it for like $10 bucks though and they offer a new successful investing quick start course that I really enjoyed. The system is constantly evolving and many investor seems to love it, not just me. Here are a few of the comments I’ve seen online recently: *Kal G. from Pennsylvania* “My experience… Read more »

Vector vest. Recomendations

Anyone has had problems cancelling this service ? My subscription was renewed without prior notification. When cancelled hefty charge for 4 usages and 6% PENALTY !!!
Also, has been bombarded with so many other added features, when it is difficult to keep up what we have.
Overwhelming to say the least.
Have not tried to use the suggestions, therefore, cannot comment on success rate.
Response when cancelled was not welcoming. Disappointing, to say the least.
Will not use this system again. It really is NOT cheap.

I have tried Vectorvest before. It was never the best software I have seen. These days I am using priceSeries (http://www.priceseries.com) with some great trading results.

Roger!
You are letting the cat out of the bag.
I must agree that after trading for years, I have finally come across something that really works (~80%+). I hope they (price series) keep up the good work! I only need 3 more years and I will retire 🙂

Jea Yu recently reviewed the priceseries software. He has given 5 stars to TradeVisor while bashing VectorVest in his review. Check it out at (http://www.priceseries.com/tradevisor_review_jea.html) or go to the priceseries webpage at http://www.priceseries.com

Took a year’s subscription to test it: the algorithms and charting info they use make their ‘top stocks’ a highly volatile list – not easy to get a sense of which companies are fundamentally sounds and worth staying with despite movement. There is no Australian customer service to speak of: the number for Aus customers is misleading as it does not function during Aus business hours. Also be careful with auto-renewals – they do them even when you have set your account to ‘no’ and it is hard work getting your money back and you won’t get all of it.… Read more »

I was a member for over 5 years. I am not sure you followed all the advice OR if you being in AUS differs significantly from the US version. All that being said, the reason I stopped being a member was two-fold: 1. Their database of stocks has a “survivor bias”. Meaning, when a stock is delisted due to acquisition, bankruptcy, etc., it is removed from their database. This has an unknown effect on the backtesting tool. 2. Their tests and the currently vogue strategy has a tendency to be 20-20 hindsight type of recommendation. Case in point. They currently… Read more »

Stock listed in MIDAS watchlist at RS 1.40 suddenly took a nosedive 20% decline in couple of days.
Why was that stock listed one of the most safest (VST 1.46) stocks at the beginning. HTHT

Be very careful when you give Vector Vest your credit card. Although there is the small print of a recurring monthly charge after the paid trial period, they will hit your credit card and won’t refund even if you didn’t use the service for the month you paid and they confirm with your logins and activity. They will not send you an invoice or email when they charge you and no flexibility in resolving the refund as I spoke to multiple people. They even said they didn’t have the capability to issue a credit card refund. It’s a good product… Read more »

I have used VV for several years to identify potential opportunities for our retirement money. We are concentrated in Closed-End Funds and high yield ETFs at this time with a high YSG rating. This information seems to be based on recent history much like Value Line timeliness ratings. I have found Bloomberg, CNBC and Scottrade platforms to have more current info and dividend history. However, VV helps find funds with the best returns along with relative safety and dividend growth.
