Unbiased feature comparison: TradesViz vs Competitor 3
This competitor is another trading journal that has been around for quite a while. They also recently went through a UI/UX revamp yet their journaling features leave a lot to be desired. We take a deeper look by comparing it with the features we offer at TradesViz.
What makes our comparison unbiased? We are not going to pick all the features that we have and they don't and put checkmarks beside it and a cross mark on the competitor column - that's outdated and we know our users are smart enough to notice this.
Instead, we will pick all the features from the competitor's website on their pricing page for the highest/most expensive plan (at the time of writing this post) and compare them directly with TradesViz!

Finally, the most important question: What's the cost?
TradesViz offers only 1 single paid plan with ALL the features listed above and more. You pay either $20 on a monthly basis or $180 on a yearly basis ($15/mo - 20% discount). That's it - no hidden offers, no discounts after you log in, no marking up the price to give a fake sense of discount.
Competitor 3 offers 2 plans which at the time of writing costs $20 and $30 on a monthly basis their yearly plans give you a small discount (again, taken at the time of writing this post from their pricing page).
Why pay more for a very limited journaling feature set?
Apart from that, we are continually adding new features and on a feature-by-feature basis - even ignoring the cost, TradesViz comes out as the obvious winner. If we include price into consideration, then you are getting more than 3x the features for 70% of the price! ($180 yearly TradesViz vs $250 yearly Competitor 3).
