Market recaps have been taking place on StockTrader.com (and StockTradingToGo before that) since 2008. My “nightly stock picks” in 2008 became “Epic Insights weekly” newsletters in 2009 which eventually became nightly market recaps in 2011.
Since 2008, we’ve published over 1000 market recaps.
Today, a slew of free market summary posts exist around the web. Every financial site publishes them. To differentiate ourselves, we’ve always focused on a KISS (keep it simple, stupid) mentality.
That said, after five years of nightly market recaps, the web has changed and it’s time for us to change.
Next week (week of August 22nd) will be the final week of nightly market recaps.
Starting the week of the 29th, we will be moving to a once per week market recap format that publishes every Sunday. The first “Weekly Market Recap” will be published on Sunday, September 4th.
Mark Hanna will continue to write the recaps and serve as your market guide.
For all you 10,000+ email subscribers alongside the thousands of RSS subscribers, nothing needs to be done. You will continue to receive each recap as you’ve always had without delay.
While this is a significant shift in our coverage, we are excited for the future.
Publishing a once per week recap will allow us to be more extensive in each report. Furthermore, the extra time during the week will be dedicated to building out a brand new product reviews area on StockTrader.com.
Our long term goal is to bring the same in depth, detailed, unbiased reviews and ratings provided at our sister site StockBrokers.com to StockTrader.com.
Instead of reviewing brokers, our focus will be reviewing the most popular retail investor websites and paid subscription services (think newsletters, stock pick services, chat rooms, seminars, and the like).
I will have more information on this new reviews area later this Fall.
For now, I welcome your thoughts and feedback on this shift to a once per week format. Please feel free to email me, blain (AT) stocktrader (DOT) com or use our contact form.
Thank you for all your continued support.
