Ok, I had an idea.

Why don't we have a sticky or forum for the newbies amongst us? A section that, for example, contains a sticky thread that Tom updates with new sites that people can learn from, another sticky thread for recommended reading, etc.

If part of why we're here is to encourage people to get smart on how to read charts, invest in TSP, and stay away from pitfalls, why don't we have an area dedicated to that? And a welcome email or PM pointing newbies toward this new area would be good as well.

What do you guys think?

That's a great idea, Aitrus.

I have asked several members on the board to direct me to educational resources so I could get a better understanding of charts, fundamentals, lingo....
and all have been most helpful.

Maybe, some of those same guys and ladies would like to think about starting a forum to further our education. Pretty please.... :D

I basically use the sites that I show in my commentary - decisionpoint.com and sentimentrader.com for my chart reading / indicator reading, if you want to call it that, plus the premium service commentary. I think reading too much can be confusing. I really couldn't recommend anything else in particular - but other members can probably chime in to let folks know what helps them.

We do have a "Recommended Reading" forum that might help as well... Recommended Reading (http://www.tsptalk.com/mb/recommended-reading/)

As we approach the end of the year, maybe some of you are like me and reflecting upon your investing/trading approach this year, and thinking about ways to make improvements. I know the premiums are the cash cow that keeps this site up and running, and so the emphasis will always be on them. But I was thinking it would be cool to have some area of the forum to follow some of the "free systems" we have here. All in one place, rather than having to hunt around in various threads. The Sentiment Survey, the Last Month Best Fund, and Coolhand's Seven Sentinels are the big three that come to mind. Maybe I've left a couple off the list.

Anyway, not sure exactly what my vision is. Maybe a link to a page where you can quickly access the systems' current allocation, historical returns, and YTD return. And probably links to the threads where you can read the rules and commentaries on each of the systems if you want more details.

Just a thought. I know it's a lot easier to sit back and make suggestions than to stand up and make stuff happen. Sorry for doing the former, and not the latter. :embarrest:

Are you talking about an area on the forum? I can create a sub-forum and we can put threads for each system, but I may need others to update the data for some systems. I guess I can move the current threads into a centralized area. Let me think about it. Thanks!

I don't know, maybe it's not a great idea. You do already have an area for the sentiment survey, and the LMBF thread is easy enough to find. I was probably thinking out loud when I shouldn't have been.
