    "The stock market isn't intuitive to me, and I doubt anyone else has an easy time taming this beast. There are so many factors and things to keep track of, it just overwhelms me whenever I try to learn about it. Thankfully, Scutify simplified things for me and made it much easier to understand what was going on. The stock market isn't quite plain English still, but I'm starting to get a grasp on it."
