Hello Fellow ChartWatchers!
We're starting to get "Spring Cleaning Fever" here at StockCharts. Can you tell?
Exhibit #1: This! This new newsletter design! What do you think of it? We reworked things to make the newsletter more readable, more printable and more informative overall. In addition, we'll be converting all of our old newsletters into this new format and putting them in a huge archive section of our site for posterity. Watch for that in the next month or so.
Exhibit #2: Did you notice the speed-up in our servers last week? Probably not - our site has always been very fast - but we did install a new collection of 28 super-fast servers from IBM and they are going to ensure that things remain super-fast for the foreseeable future even as our membership continues to grow. For example, these new servers have made the Scan Engine 16 times faster than before!
Exhibit #3: Finally, we're cleaning off another spot on our shelf for the latest "Best Technical Website" award from the readers of Stocks & Commodities magazine - for the 12th year in a row! We are very, very honored to receive this award again and - unlike Google - we pledge to continue improving things (for example, Exhibit #2 above) for the foreseeable future.
So, I know it is still early in the year, but spring is in the air here at StockCharts. Again, we hope you like the new email format for the newsletter. Click here and let me know what you think!
