yup, that's kinda what I'm saying...
Listen, am *NOT* against chat, especially if peeps want it...but I will say, if you're wanting to follow "runners"? We have threads here that are not utilized... I have, for example, played runners when K-Train was calling em on Daytrader forum. Granted, an *efficient* chat would cut down on lag-time, but folks would have to be very focused, and not clog it up with off-topic "chatter"
that's my points: chat vs chatter, noise:signal...
(actually? Your contributions here are truly appreciated. For one? I answer *way* fewer newb questions! Beyond that? Peeps see it's possible to trade well, with some common sense and a little luck--without morphing into a "trade-only-mine."
Allstocks has the best board of all. I agree that it is jam packed with all kinds of info and you do not get sucked into conversations unrelated to the topic. If the stock you want to know about is not listed herein - MAKE ONE! But what I do not like about concentrated chat rooms is that they do get off topic and it can waste a lot of precious time. I'd rather ZOOM in - see what is being said about me interest OR find a new interest and get on with my program. Chat rooms distract your day from what was on YOUR agenda.
