    Congrats Seeking Alpha !!

    I started visiting Seeking Alpha in search of transcripts. But slowly i realized that Seeking Alpha is more than just providing transcripts. Then i started reading articles on it. The articles and the comments to them are very knowledgeble. The updates that get published on the home page are very very useful (for example, home sales data, unemployement data).
    The daily economic currents have helped me a lot.
    In India i see movement in commodity market after 7 p.m. (aroud 9 a.m in US), So i closely watch the economic currents that get published every day and follow it up. It has given an edge to my trading.
    The insightful articles have really helped me to become a value investor.
