I’ve received Technical Analysis Magazine pretty much forever. At the end of each year, they conduct a reader’s survey. This year, they’ve added a write-in category for technical analysis web sites.

If you get this magazine, I would love it if you would be kind enough to take a minute to send in Slope’s name in your entry. All you need to do is go to this link and……..

(1) Enter your last name and subscriber ID in the fields (the subscriber ID is the number in the upper-left corner of your address label)

Once you’ve submitted your ballot, you’re done! Thank you!
