    Hello everyone

    I hope I can learn a little and get some advice down the road. 3 years ago I didn't have a clue what a fall in DOW or NASDEQ points really mean't. Now after having a small portfolio, I know too well what that means. I hope I can gain my confidence back and learn something from this forum.

    Re: Hello everyone

    Welcome to the forum Richard. I also remember hearing about DJI and NASDAQ in the news and not knowing what the heck they were talking about. At least they weren't talking about the usual murders and kidnappings.

    Thanks Doodman. It probably would be a good start for me to get my acronyms correct it appears.

    It is I...

    The name is Jon. I am in college for accounting. I do not know much about investing or trading, so don't expect too much input from me, but I have been reading a lot about it. I just started reading up on stock futures. Pretty much looking to turn this into a hobby once i have some money for it.

    I will be creeping around this forum, reading as much as possible and reading peoples opinions on the economy. always interests me what people have to say and the evidence they provide. so... that is all.

    Ready or not...

    I am sick of fees sucking up my returns. Ready to go it alone with a discount broker. Wish me luck.

    Leaning towards Scottrade. Might go to a fee only CFP just to confirm the thought.

    Hello all

    26yo paramedic here. figured I'd learn something new, stocks allow me to check in and modify while on shift so i decided to learn the market. so far i've learned that being younger allows me to learn the hard way without destroying my retirement and the system is key to success. right now i'm more of a technical looking at charts and making predictions. on the other end i'm learning the power of fundamental analysis so eventually i see myself as a 50/50 between the two. looking to learn a lot of wisdom from the forums. have a nice monday. :D

    Hello Everyone

    Hi there,

    I'm a long term value investor leveraging on behavioural economics for my strategies. I am also a finance professional and qualified accountant living and working in London. Feel free to ask any questions about behavioural approaches to investing, understanding companies annual reports / financial statements / prospectuses.

    The forum looks interesting, and i've already read some great (and not so great) stuff. Hopefully I will have something of use to add.

    Oh, and check out my blog. It's relatively new but hope to put more stuff up there as and when.

    Hello from BELIZE

    Hey guys
    I just got into day trading and I have been figuring out my way through the maze of "buy/sell/hold/dump/i just lost my rent money" ordeal. I actually joined up as I was hoping I can get help. I recently bought TPX (Tempur-Pedic) and I read the following
    "aid it is actively buying back its own shares, a disclosure that comes just days after the company's warning on rising competition in the mattress industry sparked a dramatic selloff in the stock. The mattress maker said it had $200 million still available under an existing share repurchase program to put toward buying back its own shares. "
    What does that mean? Did they tank the stock to buy it back cheaper? They buying it back to boost confidence? This has me slightly concerned.
    Thanks for helping

    Hello from Stock Certified!

    Hi! I have been trading for many years, but just found this forum so I thought I'd stop by and say hello. I trade for a living, and buy and sell microcaps almost exclusively. I love the thrill of looking for the next Apple or Google, and the excitement that comes when a stock I've purchased runs up a thousand percent... in short, it is a fun way to make a living-- once you know the rules and why to follow them:)

    Re: Hello, my name is Uri

    Please check out "Building the Google of Finance":

    "There aren’t a lot of really innovative search technologies for investors. That’s changing — researchers and entrepreneur are looking at unique ways to classify financial product data on mutual funds and ETFs. That means it gets easier for us to identify new investments that make sense for our portfolios. Uri Kartoun, co-founder of Stockato, has some great academic experience in robotics and classification of large data sets and he’s turned his attention to investing. Uri joins us to talk about how his set of cloud tools can help this generation of investors find the investments they’re looking for…and maybe what they didn’t know they were looking for."
