I have been in the stock market since 1989. I have been trading and investing on my own since then. I have established a website for people that are serious traders and investors. We have a bulltetin board that we use for information and not for jibbersih on how your stock is going to the moon because you own it. We are always looking for factual information. Rumor is fine as long as we do not find you are spreading rumors that are always not coming true.
