    Stock Investing Forums - Got any good ones?

    I'm looking to get back into trading after my hiatus. I know of investorshub.com and allstocks.com. Allstocks isn't good because it's primarily a penny stock forum. Investorshub isn't good because the forum layout is terrible IMO.

    I'm looking for mid to large cap stock boards. I don't feel like trading any stocks that average less than $50 million in volume a day. Penny stocks no more.

    Any suggestions on good boards that have intelligent discussion?

    If you live in Canada then Stockhouse.ca isn't too bad. Still a bunch of immature posters however. Stay far away from Yahoo Finance boards. They are just excuses for people to vent and belittle others.

    Nope don't live in Canada. I'm in the states. Really looking for more of a general discussion board. I don't want to run into people pumping/dumping. I just want a discussion on trading strategies, opinions on markets, discussion on how the fed affects the market, etc..

    If you find one let me know. I also like discussing stocks, however not with the average poster on these boards.

    http://www.diehards.org/forum/index.php

    Ok, its not really a stock investing forum, its more of a 'Jack Boggle' fan club forum. After lurking at Diehards.org, I have 100% changed how I think about investing in stocks and the market. It may be worth spending a day or two lurking and seeing what its all about...

    If you have a bit of fun money for individual stocks, fool.com has a few fun forums. They are now open to anyone, subscriber or not. I avoid the front page articles and any of there paid newsletters. IMHO, the best thing about fool is caps: http://caps.fool.com/

    I just stumbled upon a blog post at thesimpledollar.com and remembered this thread... sorry for the slow reply.

    Rather then try to explain who Jack Bogle is, or his investing philosophies, I'll just point you to this blog post: http://www.thesimpledollar.com/2007/...-mutual-funds/

    I'm a huge fan of Jack Bogle's investment advice, and have read all of his books, all are highly recommended.

    The thing to keep in mind is that there's an infinite number of strategies with vastly varying results. People get the cause & effect mixed up and try to get outrageous results with inappropriate tactics. So I always recommend people define a goal first and only then set out to learn the most likely strategies that'll give you the results you want.

    For example, my goal of "living well from my investments and not needing a job", requires certain out-of-norm returns which requires some non-mainstream strategies. For discussions on getting away from the herd out there, check out this site: http://www.elitetrader.com

    This is a good site for options: http://www.thinkorswim.com
