Tune in to Market Open Live With John Hopkins & Ed Handley

This was the website that allowed listeners to the Market Open Live radio show with John Hopkins & Ed Handley to listen to or download podcasts of their shows. Then, one day in November of 2011 this notice appeared:


One Response to Market Open Live for November 30, 2011

Good luck with the new direction. Please remember you have a legion of fans who download this program in some sort of podcast form and cannot access broadcast formats at their jobs. We count on you two to keep us safe and sane.

But the MarketOpenLive.com website never did come back.

It appears the domain expired and the website disappeared from the internet. Initially there were a lot of disappointed folks, myself included. However, Invested Central, founded in 2004 by John Hopkins Jr., continues to be live on the web (although there is a notice on its home page directing visitors to earningsbeats.com which is John Hopkins Jr.'s  newest iteration of offering wisdom, education, and  advice to becoming a successful trader.) To become a member of his private, members-only resource for those who are serious about trading in the stock market, go to: http://www.earningsbeats.com/.

SO you may ask, why is this website, marketopenlive.com, live again? I was a fan of Market Open Live. Recently I discovered that the domain was available, so I bought it with the goal of recreating as much of its original content as possible from archived pages. I did not want someone else to purchase the domain and re-purpose the site for something that had nothing in common with the original website. Unfortunately there were no archived podcasts so I couldn't provide any on this truncated version of the original site.

Instead consider this website in the spirit of it being

  • a brief nostalgic stroll back to 2011
  • a mighty thank you to John Hopkins, who is still a featured contributor of StockCharts.com's biweekly ChartWatchers newsletter
  • a thank you to both Ed Handley, and Tom Bowley
  • as well as a notification to go to John's  new website: www.earningsbeats.com.
