no...definately not. i think the mb serves two purposes for retail investors.
1. information (but u have to weed out the bs) 2. an outlet for emotions of investing (lots of anxiety, boredom, elation, etc.) 3. to chek the spulling and grammer of otherz. it seemz to be a favourate hobbi for a speshul segment of people on the mb. plus, wee all know the vulidaty of a point is ruted in the spalling and grummer of the author.
seriously though...i do think some people get caught up in their emotions and come accross like they are trying to move the pps but in reality i think that they are just trying to deal with their own anxieties but don't have a good outlet for it.
#3, lol . . . but you said 2 purposes, the math police will get 'cha . . .
. . . i'll admit i get most of my DD from the boards, all post are valuable info . . . 20 bashers show up who can't spell and we have an organized campaign, a good buy signal . . . you just have to be savoy in filtering the data . . . i was never really a basher . . . the facts at the time i showed up really looked like a P+D (ROSG style) . . . i sorted though the bs, and went long based on the true facts . . .
Normally not, and one should not buy because of this board,but the messages of pro convinced me as I doubled checked them and they turned out to be more than reasonable, I bought a bit 50000 pcs and it influenced the pps in a small way Meanwhile I want to thank pro because it was not only a good investment it also gives me a good feeling if you can earn money and sponsor a good cause at the same time, ps I live in Kenya
