I have long wanted to celebrate the good, the bad, the funny and the ugly of the social financial web (blogs, mainstream financial media and Twitter too). We will finally do that at Stocktoberfest this March 30th.
Our community and a wide group of trusted friends in the financial industry have helped us put together the award categories that I share for the first time publicly now:
Stocktoberfest East Cashtag Awards
Awards celebrating the stock market, the social financial web, and the people who make the financial community entertaining and fun.
Below are the final categories. The panel of judges and community have selected 8 to 12 finalists for each category. We will be sharing the finalists in the next few days and let the fun and bragging rights begin. No Stocktwits employee or people involved in the show (like Josh Brown have been included in the awards). The categories are:
The Greatest chart of 2016
Chart Artist of 2016
The Most Talked About Market story of 2016
The Best Financial Blog
The Financial Twitter account of the Year
The Stocktwits Person of the Year
Best Use of Social by an Investment Advisor
Stocktwits Rising Star of the Year
The Best Bots of Stocktwits
The most Outrageous Market Call of the Year
The Market Meme of the Year
The Best use of Social Data for Investment Research
