Blogs and Market Commentary

Blogs and Market Commentary

StockCharts publishes a wide variety of technical market commentary articles on our website. Many of these articles are available for free in the “Blogs” area of the website. A few are available to members only; these are shown with a light green background in the Blogs area.

Articles generally mix current market observations with charting and education. It is important to understand that StockCharts.com does not publish any buy or sell recommendations (a.k.a. “stock picks”). See our Terms of Service for more details.

StockCharts is increasingly making market commentary available in video form. Our MarketWatchers LIVE web show airs three days a week and provides real-time market commentary from a technical perspective.

Free Commentary

Free Blogs

The following Blogs are available for anyone to read:

Click on the “Blogs” tab at the top of any page to see the latest articles from each of these blogs.

ChartWatchers Newsletter

Our free “ChartWatchers” newsletter is published twice per month and contains current market commentary from John Murphy, Arthur Hill, Greg Schnell, Tom Bowley, Carl Swenlin, Erin Heim, and Gatis Roze. We strongly recommend that anyone who uses StockCharts.com for any amount of time should subscribe to ChartWatchers.

ChartWatchers is published in two different formats: email and blog articles. Anyone is welcome to read ChartWatchers in either format (or both!). Articles first appear in the free ChartWatchers blog which can be accessed from our “Blogs” tab.

After all the articles have been gathered for the week, they are joined together into one big email message - the official “ChartWatchers Newsletter” - which is then sent out to all ChartWatcher subscribers on the first and third weekend of each month. In addition, a copy of the newsletter is saved in the ChartWatchers Archive area as well.
