Wesley Chapel, FL, November 5, 2008 – More than 20,000 horses were mistreated or slaughtered in the United States in 2007, a staggering number by any standard.


That startling statistic is the reason behind Market Technologies’ financial contribution to Casey’s Place Animal Sanctuary, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing care to injured, abused or sick animals, with a main focus on horses. Market Technologies sponsored Illyce Mendelsohn at the October 26, 2008, Poker Ride at Lake Panasoffkee fund-raising event that included a horse/rider costume contest, door prizes, raffle, apple bobbing and lunch. Illyce worked at the event in addition to participating as a representative of the Market Technologies’ team.

Market Technologies, LLC, developer of VantagePoint Intermarket Analysis Trading Software, participates in numerous charitable events and organizations as part of its mission to give back to the community. Its flagship software uses artificial intelligence applied to intermarket relationships to analyze and forecast price movements in stocks, futures, options, exchange-traded funds and foreign exchange markets.

The goals of Casey’s Place Animal Sanctuary include building and sustaining a setting where animals are treated with respect and compassion. The Sanctuary provides rescue, shelter, protection, care, recovery and rehabilitation services for animals in need, and promotes experiences and education leading to a deeper understanding that all life has intrinsic value deserving consideration and respect and the importance of preserving the environment we share.

“Having worked and participated at the event, I experienced all the excellent work Casey’s is able to do first hand – all of which would not be possible without the generous donations,” said Illyce Mendelsohn. “We had over 100 people register at the event and it was very successful. Many of the horses were found starving and in deplorable conditions. I, along with Market Technologies, am happy to be able to support a wonderful cause like this.”
