Eric Nolen, Full Time Day-Trader

"David's ability to convey the basics and fundamentals surrounding them is second to none. I have been trading for seven years and it was a great reminder of getting back to the basics and keeping things simple to make money. I have since joined David's room and will be trading with him from here on out. He did an excellent job with the course."

Uros Trifunovic, Finance Student

“Investopedia Academy’s Excel for Finance and Financial Modeling courses have boosted my skills 300% and have given me a great foundation to build on. These courses have provided me the skills that are needed when entering the workforce and I feel much more confident when interviewing for jobs.”

Alberto Fontana, Founder, MAXPHO

"I found that the instructors are very easy to follow, they speak plain English, which is so important for me, since I’m Italian and a non-native speaker. The most applicable course was technical analysis, since I’m watching charts everyday. I think JC is really great, he’s going straight to the point and speaks in a very very simple way."


I love the way Investopedia designed their courses. The Academy allows me to have complete on demand access to each course I purchase. Investopedia Academy was perfect in that it allowed me to take the courses at my own pace and I could rewatch any lessons I wanted. "

Samy A | Student at HEG, Bachelor in Business Administration

I really struggled to get past the beginners threshold when it came to my understanding of Options. Investopedia Academy’s Options for Beginners course not only helped me understand, but provided me a foundation to build upon. This makes a big difference for me every day now going forward.”

Richard V | Futures Trader

Having lost a bunch of money day trading on my own self-taught knowledge, I needed a course that would provide me with a strategic and consistent way to trade. Investopedia’s ‘Become a Day Trader’ course provided significant value because I learned a proven and profitable day trading strategy."

Carter C | Engineer

I needed an entry-level understanding of the markets, and this course provided me with the crisp and clear information I was after. Most courses and sites make trading very complex, but David Green laid out his strategy in a very easy and straightforward manner. David aligned the content of the course perfectly with his day trading strategy; he could be an outstanding Business School Professor too."

Simon J | Engineer

As someone who has a passion for the markets, Research and Trade Like The Pros was the perfect course to progress my learnings. The Scorecard system enabled me to have a better view of the markets and a have more professional approach to my investing strategy."
