I'll do that...I'm actually out of the country for a week, so dont have as much time as usual. I know I'm fabulouspoodle on stocktwits, but not sure what my name is on Twitter, I think fabulouspoodle with some number. Unbelievably, when I started my twitter account recently (which I havent used) the user id fabulouspoodle was already taken, as was fabulouspoodle1 and fabulouspoodle2. Kinda weird. Very weird.
.very good free Stock info and Message Board site, to a bad one. So bad, that imo, they must be trying to gut it on purpose...for who knows what reason. But forget about the awkwardness of the new Yahoo Finance Message boards....using the new Yahoo Finance to access stock information and news is awful, super slow...I mean it actually feels like there's a virus on my computer slowing things down when I use it. Like I'm on an old dial up internet line.
As an aside, for anyone who doesnt know, you can access old Yahoo info (not the message boards) by using Yahoo Finance Canada. Obviously anyone posting here knows how to get to the old message boards..anyone who want can send me an email to my yahoo address and 'll tell you how I get to old Yahoo finance message boards. Fact is 90%+ of former users can't access it, and eventually, we all may be blocked from the old MB's and general stock info.
Now, maybe Yahoo will get their heads straight and revert back to the unbroken boards. In any case, if Yahoo doesnt make changes, it makes sense to come up with a new place that we can all exchange ideas. Personally, I get many many of my stock ideas from seeing others recommending them....and I look at many sources...Yahoo, other Finance Message Boards, some stock Blogs, etc. Sure, I go through lots of...'nah, that one's not for me', before I find one I like from others recomendations, but one good rec can make me lots of money. Thats why I think it would be smart to come up with another site to exchange investing ideas....and the criticism that goes with it....before this community is completely gutted.
Micro mentioned stocktwits...I never understood that site..mostly people talking technicals and very short term moves, but I'm willing to check it out more. I've use Ihub since 2005, and think there are some great boards there, but to access them fully you have to pay member..some may not like that.
