About

Intellisticks helps aspiring traders and investors learn how to intelligently and successfully invest in the Stock, Forex, and Crypto markets, using historical trading simulations, combined with the automated guidance of a seasoned trading mentor -- for a fraction of the cost of a traditional one-on-one coach.

Intellisticks is built for the new investor who wants to learn the best trading tactics and strategies without risking their own money and making costly mistakes.

Most investors who turn to books are overwhelmed by information that is usually outdated before the ink dries. While books can be an excellent resource for learning the basic jargon, they rarely provide you with easy-to-understand, actionable investing tips, and definitely don’t provide the hands on, active instruction that we as humans learn from the best.

● On the other end of the learning spectrum, you can spend thousands on hiring a coach to teach you. But who has the money to do that?

● What if you could combine the solid fundamentals from books with the personal guidance of an experienced trading coach?

● What if that outstanding combination is taken to the next level by using technology to transform static trade examples into interactive historical trading tests?

● What if you can take your new trading knowledge and put it to the test by trading alongside your favorite investment mentor?

You can do all of that, and more, with Intellisticks.

Intellisticks’ course offerings provide a practical, yet revolutionary approach that combines one-on-one coaching feedback with more affordable DIY learning.

Using Intellisticks, aspiring investors start by selecting from one of dozens of top investment coaches who have authored best-selling books and courses on Stock, Forex, or Crypto trading.

After learning strategies taught by our coaches, students can bring those lessons to life by making trades using the strategies recommended by their favorite trading master, in a simulated environment.

 Users practice trading against historical data with automated feedback from verified trading experts. Once the simulation is complete, students will be able to compare their decisions to those of the expert and learn exactly what they did right or wrong.

Intellisticks will have a wide variety of course offerings so users can take as many, or as few classes as they like before testing their investing skills in the real market.

Turning Experience into Education

Jeff Arthur
Founder & Chief Executive Officer
As a successful financial trader, Jeff knows the frustrations beginning investors experience. He went through them too.

For most people, Jeff knows there are only two options when it comes to learning how to trade:

  1. Read every book on the topic you      can get your hands on
    This method is relatively inexpensive but incredibly time-consuming. And      boring. You are left on your own to test the methods, and you often learn through the School of Hard Knocks, putting money on the table you can’t afford to lose. You also don’t get any feedback on your decisions except when you lose money. And      even then, you may not know where you went wrong.
  2. Hire an investing coach
    Working one-on-one with a professional trader drastically improves your skills and will often cut your learning time in half. The catch? Good coaches cost a lot of money and that puts them out of the reach of most novice investors.

Jeff created Intellisticks to overcome those two obstacles. His goal is to offer this investing educational platform to help people become better traders to realize their dreams and achieve financial freedom.

Jeff earned a bachelor’s degree in finance with more than 15 years of trading experience. Through his proprietary Blue Collar Hedge Fund trading strategy, he’s successfully managed a private investor’s $30,000 Forex account. In addition to trading, his skills include operations, strategy/mission execution, branding and vision development, product innovation, public speaking, and networking.

Warren Prescott
Chief Operations Officer
A serial entrepreneur and digital marketing strategist, Warren brings his substantial knowledge and experience of starting and running a company from scratch to Intellisticks.  He successfully raised funding for his groundbreaking "club demographics" app (Isitpoppin) and founded the digital marketing company Imagination Digital. He also created an innovative home health care billing app  called Sweet Home Timesheets.  Warren is actively utilizing his experience in marketing, development, strategy, public relations, and campaign management for the Intellisticks team.

How You Can Help

Educational technology is a rapidly growing market. E-learning is forecasted to grow from approximately $165 billion in 2015 to $240 billion in 2023.

According to the Aite Group, about one-quarter of all U.S. adults with Internet access are retail online traders. An additional six percent are professionals. Combined, this represents a U.S. trading population and Intellisticks target audience of 54 million people.

By backing our fundraising campaign, you can help us:

Offer Interactive Webinars - We will offer educators a brand-new twist on their webinars through student registrations on our website.

Offer College & University Courses - We will pursue licensing our interactive teaching software to higher education finance and investment programs throughout the U.S.

Offer a Freemium Tier - We will let students use a limited portion of our separate practice software for free. When these students are ready to advance their skills, a full version will be available on demand.

Broker Partnerships - We will partner with select brokers for advertisement opportunities and enhancement of their educational material.

Risks and challenges

Every project has its risks - there are plenty of circumstances within and outside of our control that could come up. The riskiest part of this project is in working with developers to create our interactive educational trading platform and getting it to function excellently and look beautiful.

We have already done a considerable amount of the legwork involved in getting our platform created and into your hands. We have completed design and product wire frames, and lined up top development talent for the heavy lifting of our software. We have a plan to get the platform completed to the highest degree of quality and get it in your hands as soon as possible.

We are also committed to being open and transparent about our process and the challenges and triumphs associated with it. We want you along for the ride and will keep you up-to-date as new developments emerge. If any challenges arise, we will keep you informed every step of the way.
