Benzinga founder and CEO Jason Raznick jumped on the stage when Chaikin Analytics Founder & CEO Marc Chaikin accepted the award, to add "I heard this guy 5 years ago. I've been watching this guy's stuff…. aw, it's just a website! I didn't get it at first. About 2 years ago I started researching Chaikin. He has some amazing tools, he's taken that [the tools] and given them intelligence. He built a company through blood, sweat and tears, and he built a great company."
"We're honored and humbled to receive the prestigious award of Best Trading Idea Platform," said Marc Chaikin.
