I believe in the system and am in overall profit since I began with SWS in early 2020. SWS has taken the guesswork out of my investing. Having completed the Education Modules, I now have a trading system I believe in and have the mental fortitude to follow it exactly.

Jeremy T.Member Since March 2020

I have been using SPA3 Investor for 3 years and the results have been excellent. The mechanical method is so good because there are no decisions to be made, just follow the signals. Paralysis by analysis had become a problem for me and now there is no analysis needed. The nightly alerts are excellent and have made it possible to travel and still follow the signals from afar without a computer.

Brian TMember Since August 2000

Trust, reliability, proven performance over time, customer service, regular communication.

How has it changed my investing ? I've been a bit of a smart-a** over the last 8 or so years believing I knew how to invest in the stock market. My performance has proven otherwise.

So now, while investing in the US market, I follow SWS signals, and my performance is much improved. For this I am grateful to Gary and his team.

Share Wealth Systems are a firm who displays integrity, transparency and have well researched products that work.

It's not only about the provision of a well-researched trading system that has a demonstrated edge, it’s the education they provide that helps traders stick to the process when the going gets tough and the market tests us.

Rob P.Member Since 1 September

Actionable, accurate analysis leading to higher performance that I have personally witnessed!

Geoff M.Member Since August 2014

I think that training is the main reason, while every stage of Share Wealth is good, training, webinars, personal help is the most important.

Steve V.Member Since August 2008

The System Works. I've enjoyed above market returns year after year.

Garth G.Member Since November 2005

Transparency: an open traded portfolio that demonstrates the edge. Other companies offer you the promise of dream profits but can't deliver the goods.

Stephen W.Member Since July 2018

The tool is excellent, takes the hassle and emotion out of investing. Especially useful if you are a directional trader.

Srinath P.Member since February 2017

I started trading 20 years ago - had to scan manually for stocks, daily put in my trailing stops, each day recorded any changes to my portfolio. Somehow I still managed to be successful. Then I used Metastock - boy was that hard work. I gave up trading for a while, and when I wanted to get back into it, began to look at what else was available for me to use...
Share Wealth Systems has been a delight to use. I acknowledge the way you [provide] support from the beginning to make sure we are set up to be successful:
- installing software, - trading plan templates, - education, - portfolio manager.
This is vital for the beginner and you have made it so easy. Made the software intuitive and easy to use and there is great support to begin and then continue to learn.
As time permits, you generously share your insights, capturing the market moves and timely options for us to consider implementing. You have incorporated the portfolio manager - now tax time is so much easier and in an instant I know where I am at.
Gary, you are incredibly generous and we are very grateful for you, your passion and knowledge and how you’re motivated to see others succeed in the trading world.

Debra R.Member Since December 2008

Follow the RULES and your expectations will be met.

Graeme G.Member Since December 2010

Mike S.Member Since February 2002

It is a well-structured and easy to understand trading system that everybody should be aware of.

Mark F.Member Since November 2018

Clear logical easy to use system and excellent value for money.

Adrian P.Member Since June 2016

It was really fun getting to know the team during the project. They were all helpful in answering my questions and made me feel at ease. The design ended up being better than I could have envisioned!

Bevan R.Member Since October 2019

I have happily referred a friend, Susan B, to take up a SPA3 membership .

Your support is normally of such a high standard, but the guidance provided since the start of COVID has been even more extraordinary, helping me to retain investing confidence that has led to a profit result that has been outstanding.

You replied to me once many years ago in a seminar that this support is, “…what you pay me for”, but I believe the service you provide is unmatched & truly inclusive, so I’ll thank you again here so that you can’t deflect the compliment!

Grant C.Member Since November 2009

Has helped me keeping my head above water financially in the stock market. Integrity and honesty.

Allan L.Member Since February 1999

Improved probability of a profit with my selected shares, more confidence in trading and don't lose sleep with worry about what the market is going to do.

Mick B.Member since December 2007

It is a mechanical non-discretionary system which is proven to have an edge and is continually being improved with tested research. Also a high level of education on how to use the system for maximum success.

Peter J.Member Since February 2012

Every aspect of investing has been covered in an easy to understand process. It has helped me immensely and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is wanting to learn how to invest. Even my own kids. Many thanks to you all in putting this system together.

Jeffrey S.Member Since June 2014

I am impressed with the commitment to servicing members by Gary and the team.

Over about 10 years of membership in SWS my confidence has grown in the product (previously I was more a value investor). I think this is because my returns have been, on the whole, good but also because of the research and constant feedback to members on the product and the investing world and the issues we confront as investors.

As a person approaching retirement, the issue of how to deal with volatility and protect capital through timing has been particularly important to me and I now think I can deal with this issue with growing confidence.

Wakefield S.Member Since September 2010

I believe in your research and philosophy. You and your team are accessible to all of us. You and your team are always striving to improve your system. I know that if wanted to communicate with you personally that all I have to do is contact you.

Boyd P.Member Since April 1999

It is the best technical analysis based research, analysis and overall market information available, in my opinion.

Keith L.Member Since November 2010

By following the buy and sell signals given by Share Wealth Systems, and as a long time stock trader, I am satisfied I have found a solid and reliable method of increasing my capital. It is furthermore a method a beginner with self discipline can easily and successfully use.

Sean R.Member Since June 2017

The systems are easy to understand and put into action. Your support services in terms of education, planning templates and regular video updates are all excellent.

Having traded stocks and options in Australia and the US for decades under my own steam I believe there is no better way to protect and grow capital than employing SPA3 strategies. One major advantage to me are the scans that get you into and out of the market at the appropriate time. Without the scanning capability it takes a lot of work to find investment opportunities or determine the time to sell and keep both decisions impartial.

Scanning makes it easy and far less stressful and makes the entire process mechanical!

Robert H.Member Since February 2002

I have used the SWS trading software now for a long time. I have learnt to follow my trading system developed using SPA, and it has turned out to be very successful.

Trevor B.Member Since December 2001

SWS has had a profound influence on our investment journey from unstructured guesswork to trade selection using the rules based SPA3 Investor strategy.

In addition to online/phone support available whenever needed, SWS also maintains a quality education portal filled with material designed to inform and equip members with the psychological resources to trade the system as it was designed to be traded.

We were extremely fortunate to have attended two SWS Retreats where Mark Douglas was the key presenter. His insights and SWS methodology have been a winning combination in helping us achieve success in trading.

SWS presents a complete package, supporting us build skills and the right mindset to trade successfully.

Colin D.Member Since November 2007

Great service and genuine interest in seeing individual investors prosper.

Nick R.Member Since April 2012

The SPA Investor method works! Being systematic it takes away the uncertainty of investing and the "human error". The support and communication to investors provides very good help and Beyond Charts is an excellent charting program. The phone app makes it possible to trade from anywhere and enables continuity when away from the computer. For me that is critical.

Gary and I have known each other for years: we met, of all things, playing cricket against each other. I was running Personal Investment magazine at the time in the mid 1990’s and we quickly found a spot for Gary and his stock-picking techniques. Over the years Gary has evolved his business and his skills, but his quest has always remained to same: allow individual investors to have the same tools and mindset as the professionals.

I’ve known Gary Stone since the early 90s. Quite simply he is a trading systems design expert and I have every respect for the way he approaches the markets. Watching him help his clients become top traders has been one of the highlights of my trading career. The corner-stone of our friendship has always been our shared values regarding commitment to excellence in trading and our commitment to seeing our clients prosper.

Several years ago Gary asked me to give a presentation at a conference he was hosting for his customers on Hamilton Island.
I accepted and had a wonderful time. I found Gary and his organization to be very professional and operate with a high level
of integrity. Since then, he and I have developed a very good working relationship and I'm very happy to say that we have also
become good friends.

I have known Gary since the early 1990s, when I was editor of the Stock Exchange Journal (SXJ), the predecessor of the highly successful Shares magazine. Gary approached me with the idea of using the ShareFinder system (as it was then known) to identify a stock portfolio that the magazine would track. The ShareFinder portfolio proved such a popular feature of the magazine; we kept it when we launched Shares in November 1996. Since then I have enjoyed both a professional and personal relationship with Gary and have been honoured to present at several Share Wealth Systems conferences. I am a strong advocate for people being given access to information, education and tools to enable them to take charge of their investment future if they so wish, and I believe the products and approach of Share Wealth Systems - and Gary in particular - are a force for good in this regard. Gary is a passionate educator, delighted to share the information and experience he has built up over many decades of participation in the markets - and I believe he has developed a very good product.

It's been a pleasure to know Gary and his team for a number of years, both personally and professionally. Apart from offering a great product, they operate on a mandate of strong client support, stringent ongoing research and a strong willingness to help DIY traders achieve investment success within a strict risk management regime. Whilst investing manifests in different ways to different people, success in the markets unquestionably requires a mathematical edge and SWS ensures their clients are on the right side of the expectancy curve.

Trading success comes from having a mechanical approach to the markets that removes emotion from the trading environment and replaces it with a mathematical edge. This edge, if followed and applied rigorously will reap rewards for traders and investors alike over extended periods of time, despite the ups and downs of the markets, if they have the confidence to continually apply the strategy with discipline and patience. The confidence to do this comes from trusting the system, or methodology, being traded. Trusting the system comes from knowing that the methodology being applied is both sound and the product of rigorous and thorough research. Gary and the team at SWS are meticulous in the research and development of trading systems with proven performance over many years and a wide variety of market conditions. I have had the pleasure of working with Gary and the team over many years and am always impressed by their professionalism, their depth of knowledge, and their commitment to helping traders and investors. They are a great team professionally and personally.

Gary Stone possesses multiple capacities which make him uniquely qualified. About five years ago I worked with Gary as a
consultant and as a speaker at a lengthy Share Wealth Systems conference in Thailand. Later we also collaborated during
conferences in Adelaide and San Francisco. Throughout that relationship I have observed Gary interacting with his clients and members of his SWS team as well as developing and improving trading systems. In all the foregoing instances, Gary exhibited both a high level of technical expertise and an equally high level of sensitivity and respect for the people around him.

I believe that the nature and level of the research conducted by SWS is unparalleled in the world of equities trading for private investors. Indeed, the quality and the comprehensiveness of SWS research have raised the bar for systems providers and money managers around the globe. This largely reflects the commitment of Gary Stone and his associates to the continuous quality improvement of the SWS methodology.
