Customer Service

Have a question about your subscription? We’ve compiled some helpful tips and other information you’ll find on the SlingShot Trader site. Simply click on any of the links below for details. If you need further assistance, don’t hesitate to contact our customer service team at 1-866-868-8683.

Account Information

How can I find out what my account number is?

When you join SlingShot Trader, you’ll get your account number in the e-mail you receive from us right after you join. You also can find your account number at the bottom of any of our Weekly Update and Trade Alert e-mails. Once you have your account number, you can set up your Username and Password. Your username will be the email address that you used to sign up for SlingShot Trader.

If you already have a working personalized Username & Password from another InvestorPlace Media subscription, you do not need to create a new one for SlingShot Trader. Your existing Username and Password will work for SlingShot Trader for as long as you are a subscriber.

Username & Password Issues

How do I create a Username and Password?

To create a unique Username and Password, you will need your account number and your ZIP code. Your account number can be found at the bottom of our Weekly Updates and Trade Alerts or in the e-mail that you received when you joined SlingShot Trader. You can also call Customer Service at 1-866-868-8683 for help. Click here to create your Username and Password now.

My Username and Password aren’t working.

Remember, your Password is case sensitive, so you must type it in exactly the way you set it up.

I forgot my Username and Password. What do I do?

If you’ve forgotten either your Username or Password, we can e-mail them to you at the e-mail address you provided when you signed up. Click here to choose this option.

How do I change my Username and Password?

If you’ve already created a unique Username and Password, click here to change it.

If you haven’t created a unique Username and Password, click here to begin the process of creating your unique account.

I already gave you an e-mail address when I signed up for the service. Why do I have to give it to you again?

The e-mail you gave us when you created your Username and Password will be used only to send you an e-mail if you forget your Username and Password. For security purposes, we keep this information separate from your other account information, so it’s possible for you to have more than one e-mail address on record with us.
