2008 Readers’ Choice Awards by Technical Analysis, Inc.
We are pleased to present the Technical Analysis of STOCKS & COMMODITIES
magazine 2008 Readers’ 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 Readers’ 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 doesn’t 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 Readers’ 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 you’ll find the Readers’ Choices a terrific guide
to products and services that you’ll be interested in.
