Tradesight.com is dedicated to providing quality independent market education and analysis, along with FOREX, stock, options, and futures trading strategies for those who want to become market savvy and improve their financial well-being over time.
Founded in 2002, the site offers information and education about the U.S. stock and futures markets, individual securities, and the FOREX markets. The site and services are mainly for active traders and investors. Our flagship newsletter is the main stock report, although the forex report has become the top-selling Tradesight service. Technical analysis of the markets is the basis of our methods (see the Products links at the top of the website for descriptions). In general, our trading comes from 80% technical analysis and 20% fundamental analysis in the stock market and 100% technical analysis in the forex markets.
Tradesight’s roots go back to 1998 as an e-mail only newsletter. It was mailed out daily and included certain stocks with long and short ideas and triggers. By the year 2000, the newsletter was sent to over 300 people daily.
In 2002, Tradesight became a subscription-based website. The newsletter was enhanced to include market overviews, trade reviews, educational analysis, and more detailed picks. All work at the time was done by Tradesight’s founder, Chris Mercer.
In 2003, Tradesight added the small cap report just as the markets went into a major bull move in that arena. The addition of the service fueled the growth of Tradesight throughout that year.
In 2004, several things occurred that added to Tradesight’s offerings. Tradesight began working with schools and trade desks around the world to educate traders on the markets and give them picks. Rich Derrick came on-board as an analyst, bringing his more active daytrading approach to the service via a new Trading Lab. Rich’s background at the New York Institute of Finance proved invaluable as a resource to Tradesight subscribers. In addition, in July of 2004, the Tradesight Forex service was added to provide insight and calls to that emerging market.
In 2005, Mark Likos left his Firetraders chat room and came over to Tradesight to work full-time. He brought his expertise, in addition to a refined version of his daily Likos Futures and Forex Levels. Tradesight services expanded to live coverage round the clock in all of the covered markets, providing real-time thoughts and commentary from various analysts throughout the day. The Lab includes text, voice, and full Whiteboard functionality.
In 2006, Rich Derrick added the ETF service for less active traders looking to trade the broad indices on a wider timeframe.
Now in its tenth year as a subscription newsletter website, Tradesight covers stocks, forex, futures, small caps, and the ETF markets. The 24-Hour All-Markets Trading Lab covers the forex and equity market round the clock with up to four analysts available at any time to educate traders on their style of play. Trade calls are made daily in all of the markets, and 13 reports a week are written to cover the various markets. Over 500 subscribers to the various reports hail from 22 countries. Institutional/bulk subscriptions are provided to groups in various countries.
