Becoming a Contributor for TraderPlanet.com

Since our predecessor site launch in 2005, our contributing writers have been featured in Forbes, Reuters, CBS MarketWatch, and Bloomberg TV among others.

We are seeking to expand our contributing writer staff and invite professional writers and industry professionals to explore providing original work for our audience of active traders.

Our content is guided by two main principles:

  1. Topics examine an area of trading or market analysis with an educational focus and an editorial tone, where value could be derived from beginning, intermediate or advanced traders.
  2. The materials are timely and as unrestricted as possible.

While we will publish nearly any financial topic where there is enough interest, we are especially interested in material covering the following areas:

  • Active Trading
  • Technical Analysis
  • Trading Strategies
  • Stocks, Options, Futures, Exchange-Traded Funds, Currencies
  • Trading Psychology
  • Market Behavior
  • Trading as a Business
  • News, political and economic developments

For more information on our editorial process, please see our Contributor Guidelines.

Other Details

In submitting article content, our contributing writers achieve a high degree of visibility and free publicity. In exchange for this exposure, we simply ask that you comply with our Terms and Conditions. Contributors also have the opportunity to take advantage of special promotional features in exchange for posting the TraderPlanet Contributor Seal on their Web sites:

To acknowledge the use of the seal on your business website, we will reciprocate by upgrading your member profile to an Adventurer Profile on a 30-day trial. The Adventurer Profile is a paid corporate membership, valued at $6,000 per year. The Adventurer membership provides a prominent presence within the community as this membership signifies a long-term commitment to TraderPlanet principles and the audience we serve. This role is ideal for established companies who are seeking to position themselves as an authority within a specific area of expertise. Adventurers enjoy the expanded promotional benefits of featuring blogs, webinars, live chats and videos to enhance their profile display.

In addition to the 30-day trial of the Adventurer Profile, your agreement to keep the seal artwork on your website for a period of one year will also qualify your content contributions to be featured within our TraderPlanet Today Newsletter which is sent to over 160,000 opt-in subscribers every weekday. Your articles, market commentary, blog or videos will be placed in rotation with other qualifying contributors to be placed in the "Featured Contributor" features within this publication.
