Site Description: TradingTheCharts.com (TTC) was a membership based community and the home of unbiased Elliott Wave Analysis as provided by Dominick Mazza.
Project Overview: Initially hired in January 2007 to update the phpBB2 forum script. The project turned into an on-going development process which included creating a custom logo which incorporated the image from the TTC Silver Medallions. The design is based off of the phpBB2 Aphrodite template which was extensively customized per the client’s request. A custom flash banner was also created to highlight the feature set of the site. Unique forum blocks explaining the site would appear for non-members, but would be hidden from members. Extensive custom php coding was done to generate several custom pages include a page displaying Dominick’s “Black Charts”. The “Black Charts” contained his market indicators and were updated every 5 minutes for members though out the day to assist with trading. Members also had a forum Quick View which would let them know when new posts were made, where it was posted and by whom. Most of the market commentary was provided in a chat room from AddonChat that was fully integrated to allow members to easily join in on the discussions. A custom solution was also created to allow members to easily upload and share images, most often stock charts with others. In addition to development, time was also spent on the forums and the site’s help-desk assisting with any technical questions pertaining to the site.
Unfortunately in October 2008, Dominick Mazza, owner and driving force behind TTC passed away suddenly. In November 2008 the site closed. Since then the TTC community has been mostly relocated to Trading da Numbas where several of the moderators and contributors follow in Dominick’s footsteps by providing unbiased trading guidance.
