This page will review important points to keep in mind when producing commentary, articles, videos and other content for TraderPlanet.com.
General Content Guidelines
We are looking for engaging and comprehensive content that educates our site visitors. All content must be trading related, educational, and timely. They must be editorial, not advertorial in theme and tone.
Topics Related to trading or market analysis
We are open to evaluating any subject matter that relates to trading.
Please try to maintain balance and objectivity. Commentaries are always welcome, but we ask that you also incorporate educational wisdom in your pieces. It always helps when claims are supported by facts. We will not accept product reviews or promotional pieces. Aggressive and excessive self promotion will not be tolerated within content portions of the site as there are more appropriate mediums (such as the member profile page) to achieve these objectives. Contributors will receive guidance and warnings from TraderPlanet Administration if they fail to comply with our editorial policies and Terms and Conditions and will risk permanent banishment from the community if corrective action is not taken.
TraderPlanet permits one back link (to your web site) within each content submission.
Other Important Points
If you are quoting any individuals, companies, organizations, other publications or web sites, please provide the source's name, where it was published, or quoted, and date of publication. If it's an online source, provide the link.
Objectivity and Opinion
All traders have their opinions and biases. The editorial staff will not pass judgment on a particular issue. We simply wish to present the facts to our readers in a compelling, balanced and objective manner. Our readers will form their own views.
Graphics should be no more than 400 pixels wide and sent as separate attachments and labeled in the order in which they should appear. Please provide .gif and/or .jpeg files. Use recent chart examples -- that is, the most recent 12 months, and preferably, the last two or three months (the more recent, the better). Old examples undermine credibility.
The summary should be nothing more than a re-cap or a reiteration of the article's main ideas with different wording. It portrays the points in the article you want the reader to remember most.
