Welcome to the Pool!

(iBox/Intro ALWAYS under construction laugh)

 

Purpose:

I created this board with two particular goals in mind. Casual story-telling of unique trade scenarios you have experienced as well as encouraging the typical banter associated with picking stocks. (Idle chit-chat and routine banter IS permissible too) After all, we’re at a pool right? wink


Primary Focus:  
 
As the title of the board suggests, this is the perfect venue to grab a drink of your choice, find an empty chaise lounge around the pool, and share your MORE memorable trading stories with all of us. What do I mean by memorable stories? Simple- any trading story that has a unique bent to it. There needs to be some compelling aspect to the story. It could be humorous, sad, dangerous, or whatever as long as it has some compelling feature to it. This would include your life changing- hitting it big- “YES! I can now retire” tales of trading prowess (luck), as well as your- &$*#@^!, that didn’t work out- now, I gotta find a box to move into” dumbass trading moves-- and everything else in between. This can also include flat or sideways trades as long as it has an unusual or unique history associated with it.

Amuse us. Scare us. Teach us.

 

The stories can be from trades made back in the day that some of us old-timers experienced when trade orders had to be phoned in and stock prices were quoted and executed in fractions instead of the current decimal format. Or, it can be a recent or current trade- one that you are currently paper rich in or dirt poor with at the moment. Again, there should be some compelling unique aspect to the story other than simply a trade.
 

 
No "Judgment" posts of any kind!
 
Any posts targeting, criticizing, mocking, or in any way demeaning the poster sharing their story is grounds for immediate removal. Hindsight is and always has been 20/20. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US (without exception) has made stupid trades- we don’t need to be ridiculed or criticized for it all over again. We’ve beaten ourselves up enough times already.

Questioning the mechanics or the thoughts/intent involved in the trade(s) is acceptable. Learning from past trades (good OR bad) is a great teaching tool. But, using my board as an excuse to take drive-by pot shots at someone will NOT be tolerated.

Secondary Focus:
 
As this IS a trading forum, stock picks and mentions are invited and encouraged. I myself will most certainly be documenting my trades as a means of easy access for future review without cluttering and mucking up someone else’s board with my trade history. However, for true trading help and input, you will find me frequenting a board {The Golden Lounge }, for instance, that I have participated on for many many years. It is inhabited by a good many other “Grandfathered” and/or older posters who, like me, have been here for decades with a lot of experience- something you don’t get from a book or website. A lot of good brains to pick from reside there (some lurk)- people who know their way around everything from a 10K to SEC form X-17A-5 Part III. O.K that last one may be a bit of an exaggeration big smile  but you get my drift. Sharing your pick for a quick chat or highlight is fine. Include your supporting documentation but I would highly encourage you to peruse the afore-mentioned board or other similar boards as a means to really debate the DD of your favorite pick.

FORMAT:
 
If you are posting a stock pick, please begin your post with the Ticker. Your initial post (if you're highlighting a stock pick) MUST include supporting documents or DIRECT links only i.e., SEC filings or PR releases but NO "tout" sheets, promotional mailings/website links, or linkbacks to your board or yours or anyone else's post(s). 
 
WARNING:                                      No SPAM or Promotional Posts !! They will be removed. Period.
 
When all is said and done, I encourage laid back participation. I will most likely treat my board more as a “living document” of sorts, and may periodically amend the rules as time and patterns evolve. For the most part, you will find this board to possess a great deal of latitude. I did, however, strictly as a precaution because certain people will eventually and invariably attempt to push the limits as they always do here on IHub frown, highlight and publish the tolerance limits of the board as a template for everyone to be aware of.

So, for now, go find your lounge, refresh your drink and take a dip. Oh, one last thing before you go. This is a "Premium" board and therefore it is limited to adults. As a result, I have also made the pool area a "Clothing Optional"  venue so please- no recording devices. 

 
That's it! Welcome and Enjoy!
