Default Reply to TRANTS: Keep Bears & Bulls in the same pen

Trants -

BEARS vs BULLS:
My vote is for keeping both bear and bull in the same arena. As a relatively new trader, information posted that contradicts or reveals potential weak spots in various discussions is profoundly informative. Prior to placing trades, I frequently access multiple discussion boards for check/balance of my understanding. StockRants now rates above all others because you guys literally teach me how to research, filter BS and I don't have to worry about being so gullible w/pump and dumps.

Separating bearish from bullish comments would only obscure the potential down side of investments. Like, who needs that?

INDIVIDUAL SECTOR AREAS:
Suggestion - please keep threads as flowing w/out categorically separating into sectors. However, is there any chance you could implement a feature that could automatically categorize individual threads into sectors for those who wish to view accordingly? For instance, I often look for oil or pharmaceuticals, but am unable to ascertain via subject line on individual threads. We have a feature to enter w/"prefix" (buy, sell, etc.) Could we also have a sub-text of sector for each stock pick thread?

AND ANOTHER...
This site is becoming more and more diverse - a magnificent thing to behold! However, threads posted for the London or Canadian stock exchange usually don't interest me. When entering a suggestion for a stock pic, can we identify WHICH STOCK EXCHANGE the symbol is traded? This also helps in consideration for extended hour trading.

Hey Trants,

Thanks for the response. Great work you guys are doing on the site - keep it up. I understand your take on individual sectors - My post was geared towards all sectors. I agree in regards to diversity of B-Vs-B mentality in which one can be more 'enlightened' by another's knowledge of a particular stock/sector. Now, you're question posted @ the end in regards to 'fast pick recommendations' and dissemination thereof - to be honest; in chat forums fast picks is the name of the game - in the forums is where one can disseminate the information with all the pros/cons conceivable. Hope that helps.

Also, consider adding a Soros corner, Buffet corner, Meredith Whitney corner & and the Fundamentals of stocks corner.

I wonder if "The Intelligent Investor" is Free - Actually look - i did some research and found the whole text on Google Books - Here's the link consider it a good reference for the site ..

The Intelligent Investor: The ... - Google Book Search

Please excuse me if i overstep any boundaries.

GLTA!

One for Scalp trades and one for long trades for the day.

This way when we open up to the public and we have many different style traders
they can choose which chat room is their style.

We can always start off with one room and see how that goes.

I have friends who would participate and give their picks threw out the day.

I also am willing to manage any responsibilities that the chat room might come with.

Let me know what's on your mind....

Have not been active on this forum in years and good to see its still alive. I was part of the original crew. Anyone else out there?
