Writer's Market

A couple of days ago, I encounter 2012 Writer's Market Deluxe Edition (Writer's Market Online) at a neighborhood bookstore. The book contained a catalog of freelancing opportunities in a wide assortment of magazines and journals. What I found interesting was that financial and technology freelancers did not receive an appreciably higher rate than other areas. There were certainly exceptions, but for the most part, there was no real discrepancy between rates in different fields. The main trading-oriented publication the book listed was www.traders.com (Technical Analysis, Inc., publisher of Stock and Commodities, Working Money, and Traders.com Advantage magazines), where freelancers apparently contribute a good deal of the articles.

According to the Editorial Guidelines, the top 5 hot topics are relative strength indicator (RSI), average directional movement rating (ADXR), Fibonacci ratios, MACD and moving averages, and volume trends. I am a bit surprised to see RSI so prominent. In contrast, stochastics and chart reading are much further down on the list.
