. I agree that solid technical analysis alone does not make good traders, but I would like to address your question as to why traders would ever publish a newsletter. I publish a morning newsletter (free) for the FX firm i trade for. I love writing my morning strategy because it forces me to commit to my trade ideas on paper and formulate them in a presentable manner that k's read. As I mentioned, I trade for the hedge fund here and since I began doing my morning thing, my trading has never been so good. Just my input.
