I love StockCharts! So many wonderful resources. The expert commentary in the blogs is must-read material each day. The speed in which the site operates is awesome - I’m a software developer and greatly appreciate this aspect. And, of course, the quality of the charts is second to none. I’ve spent a lot of money on other tools and hardly use them because I find StockCharts.com to be so much better."
