Post Number 1,000

Nov 4, 2008: 10:34 AM CST

Today hit a milestone with the Afraid to Trade blog, as this is the 1,000th post since I began blogging in February, 2007!

I wanted to take a moment to thank all readers deeply for their support and for reading, emailing, and commenting.  Traffic has been increasing virtually every month, especially so in the current environment.

My goal has always been to provide education to overcome uncertainty and anxiety in the marketplace, and share my thoughts and experiences on current markets and educational examples through charts and other methods.  I will continue to work with this goal in mind and continue to count on your support as we continue to grow and expand.

My posts address various facets of Technical Analysis across multiple markets and leading stocks, and attempt to show examples of ‘lessons in action’ through charting and commentary.  I’m happy to link to other resources so feel free to make me aware of new sites or favorite posts elsewhere that would be of benefit to readers.

As always, if any of you have suggestions on how I can improve the site or the experience, please let me know.

Let’s make it a thousand more!

    Congratulations on the milestone. I read every single post and would like to thank you for the hard work and effort. As a new trader, I really appreciate the time you commit to teach us about the markets. As a humble recommendation, it would be great if you can figure out a way to facilitate printing out a cleaning version of the posts. I will improve the experience as I like to keep hard copies of some great articles you have written. Keep the good work. Congrats again.
