Default Does vectorvest work?

They had a $9.95 trial last year and I bought it, it does a good screen based on their proprietary RSI that was pretty good, and I know a few folks from my local IBD meetup group that swear by it, but I do so many screens of my own I couldn't justify the $600+/yr fees. If I was short on time, I would more seriously consider it. Also it wasn't particularly Mac friendly.
It is very different from the tout sheets, it does a nice analysis, but it does not outright pick stocks for you. I does call market bias as well (tells you if the day is setting up to be good for longs, shorts, or to stay on the sidelines).
I find just subscribing to IBD to be more valuable overall. Hope that helps.

I know this reply is a few months later but there is not much on this forum for vectorvest, so I thought I would put my 2 cents in.

I am a beginning trader, have been trading for about 2 years. I started with Vectorvest, quit for about 8 months and went back to it. I did not do well without it. I work full time and do not have the time to research stocks. Some of the stocks I have picked with Vectorvest have done fantastic, and later turned out to be picks by winning fund mangers that I read about in articles. I have read it is not geared for day trading or long term investing which I also agree. I am a swing trader, and I have always made more than the $60 a month it costs, sometimes with only a couple trades a month. I have tried gorrilla trades (they tell you what and when to buy, no thinking required) and Reuters stock screener (you build your own screens), but Vectorvest is a whole different thing. You use their proven screens or even tweak them more yourself, or build one of your own, and you make the decisions of what to buy. I love the analysis tools and the backtest you can run on any portfolio for almost any time period. All the loser stocks I have ever gotten stuck in, would have never been on a vectorvest list to buy. They provide tutorials on the website and there are local user groups to attend. My return on my investments with Vectorvest is about 100%. It would be more if I traded more regularly and if I bought 10 different stocks at a time but I don't have the 100k they recommend to start with. I did turn 10k into 20k in one year buying and selling up to 3 stocks at a time. I can't complain about that.

My experience with Vectorvest has taught me to pay attention to MARKET TIMING. I know all about those "you can't time the market" pronouncements. Vectorvest has satisfied that argument to my complete satisfaction. There are probably better stock selection ideas elsewhere. I like ZACKS. If you use Zacks #1s, with high Vectorvest RT and only go long when Vectorvest issues a CONFIRMED BUY it's hard to go wrong.

I'm baffled by those who say it's overpriced or costly. I'll tell you what's costly, loosing money!

I hope this helps you.
