Crossposted from the Mish board, which hopefully is sufficient to qualify for the nomination.
Brian's posts don't always appear on their face to be all that different from other people on here. A lot of his posts are links to charts, which is a pretty common practice here.

The thing that sets him apart in my book is that instead of just posting the chart, he goes to the trouble of marking the chart up with his interpretations, drawing in trend lines, annotating divergences, extending out his projections on the chart itself, and just generally trying to make it a learning experience.

For the people on here who don't have a lot of chart experience, I think Brian makes it a hell of a lot less frustrating than when somebody just puts up a chart and makes it seem as if any idiot could figure out exactly where the market's going to go without bothering to explain at all.

Brian has also done a very good job of trying to defuse board arguments, especially with Androcles. He doesn't just disagree; he explains why he disagrees.

Okay, here's a few examples.

Link to his newsletter, which gives all kinds of helpful technical info for a huge number of different markets. He makes these available quarterly.

Analysis of the past 100 years of 4-year cycles.

Smorgasbord of market charts and trend analysis. This is just an example of the most common type of Brian post, which happens on a very regular basis.

Some longer-term Elliott Wave analysis.

The thing is that there's nothing really all that remarkable about these particular posts. What's remarkable is that he keeps making these posts, week in and week out. He doesn't post everyday, but when he does post, he almost always has something useful to say.
