As Blain mentioned in late August we will be concluding StockTrader.com’s weekly recaps at the end of this month! I have been part of the team here since 2012 (time flies!), and blogging on my own across a few sites since 2006 — back before blogging was really much of “a thing”. The landscape of financial media has certainly changed dramatically since then. It’s been quite the journey and I/we appreciate the readership over the years, and the messages sent over the past month since the announcement. It’s also been a great company and team to be a part of!
As Blain outlined it is difficult to find a similar type of recap out there, as most of the investing world is focused solely on fundamental stories – vs technical focused. So with that said, I would like to see if there is any interest from the readership to see the recaps continue in a different delivery method. Obviously almost the entire internet is now based on page views and hence revenue through ads. Having done the hard work of started multiple blogs from scratch, I myself do not want to go down that path again from square one. But if there is an interest from a moderate amount of readers to continue recaps we could go very old school (pre blog era) and do a direct to email “newsletter” type model. So the recaps would be sent directly to your email each week. This would be for a modest monthly subscription of say $5 aka a fancy Starbucks coffee a month. This is obviously in complete contradiction to the current business models out there, I do understand!
If interested, I’ve created a survey through google forms – it simply asks for a name (first name is fine) and email address. So if you have an interest, please follow this link, fill out the form and if over the next week or so there is enough interest to make it worthwhile I’ll be in contact. Thank you! – Mark
