Stocks & Commodities V. 23:13 (20-33): Readersí Choice Awards 2005 by Technical Analysis, Inc.
We are pleased to present the Technical Analysis of STOCKS & COMMODITIES magazine 2005 Readersí Choice Awards (RCA). Each year, we put before our readers a ballot of products and services related to technical analysis and trading.
The following pages present the products and services you and your peers chose this year as your favorites. The Readersí Choice Awards begins each year with a list of products gathered by the editors of STOCKS & COMMODITIES, with space for write-in votes (given that our list doesnít claim to be complete). Then, to find out what our readers find to be the most useful for their trading, we ask them to choose their favorite products or the ones they find most useful from various categories by going to our website, Traders.com, and filling out the survey there. After that, we compile the results, just in time for the Bonus Issue you hold in your hands.
Products are categorized by their primary purpose. Just because a service or product is not listed does not necessarily mean that the product does not have features germane to the category; otherwise, a number of products could be listed in numerous categories. In addition, some categories are divided by cost so that the comparisons can be made on a more level playing field.
The winners in the Readersí Choice Awards are almost always the dominant players in their niche, and rightfully so. You may have special needs for your trading, however, so you should keep in mind those
products that are not the big names in the category of your interest before you make your final decision. The RCA is designed to be an aid for you when you are deciding on which of the numerous products and services currently available to use for your trading and investing. With that in mind, we think youíll find the Readersí Choices a terrific guide to products and services that youíll be interested in.
