Forex - Currency trading and its impact at Value Forum
Forex impact has been a recurring theme in discussions among Value Forum members for years. With the movement of the US
dollar relative to other currencies, forex trading has been a strong factor in investment returns, a strong influence on stock
picks, and a big topic of conversation with 100s of posts under the Forex / Currency main area and US Dollar sub-topic as
investors debate forex direction, share news and research, and debate where to put their money.
With a current count of 634 members (14 members online right now), Value Forum -- or
"VF" for short -- is the premier online investment discussion and collaboration community for serious value and
income investors located around the world and investing with various currencies, focused on stocks, forex, and the overall
stock and money markets. With over 125 topics in the forum including forex discussion under the Currency topic, the trading
of the US Dollar, Canadian Dollar, Japanese Yen, Australian Dollar, and other currencies in the forex markets, are key themes
to be found in the forum. On the main VF home page, the CAD to USD exchange rate and JPY to USD exchange rate are included as
part of the market snapshot, as a result of member requests to include these forex rates. Value Forum also boasts a stock
ratings system with over 1000 rated stocks, quarterly and year-long stock picking contests (in which one strategy employed
by various members has been picking Canadian stocks under the pink sheet symbol to capture the effect of forex trading),
group polls (one recent poll asked, "Due
to the sinking of the US dollar what percentage of your funds are in non US
stocks?"), shared portfolios, a group calendar system, and other online collaboration tools.
Membership at VF lets you tap into a stream of forex forum discussions and stock and bond trading and investment ideas
from extraordinarily sharp individuals just like yourself, and test your own ideas about forex and stock strategies and
ideas against peer review by the community.
Unlike the large free public investment sites, at Value Forum we verify the true identity of each paying member by
running their credit card. This means each participant has true and full accountability for their actions, we have true
from the community, and true ability to enforce our "no-alias policy" -- at ValueForum you'll never have to wonder
whether you are talking about forex ideas with multiple people or with various aliases of the same person. By contrast,
at free public forex forum sites that require merely a
working email address to join, it can be impossible to stop the same person from establishing multiple accounts and using
those extra accounts for nefarious purposes.
Because Value Forum is supported by revenues from membership fees, not only can you rest assured that
our company will keep the site running for years to come,
every page of our site is designed and maintained with our members in mind and what is most convenient to them,
as opposed to advertiser-supported sites focused primarily on generating
the most page views, optimizing their pages for advertisements instead of content, and squeezing as much ad revenue from each
page as possible even if that means big annoying flashing banners. At Value Forum, we listen to our members and are
constantly adding and improving site features to maximize member satisfaction, creating new forex forum topics when requested,
and are always available to talk with members. Plus, you'll benefit from offers and
discounts we negotiate on behalf of the community.
As a private stock, forex, and market discussion forum community, ValueForum members collaborate only with one
another, not the entire public, and members are not permitted to redistribute (copy/paste etc.) the work of other members
outside of the VF community (violators forfeit membership - you don't want your forex trading ideas leaving the forum, and
other members expect the same).
Full messages and stock ratings are readable by members-only, creating an environment that encourages discussion and debate
and discourages those seeking to "pump," "bash," or "spam"
(at VF, such bad behavior forfeits membership). The "riff-raff" are instead attracted to free public sites
that provide the largest possible public
audience (an audience which includes search engines that crawl, index, and store pages). At Value Forum, non-member
visitors, including search engines, are not permitted to
read full messages or stock ratings. "What gets posted to ValueForum stays on ValueForum."
As a guest, you may only access the ''headlines'' to each post designated ''members only'', but may not view the full
text of a post. Messages are also posted privately between smaller
groups of members. Can't wait to start reading and discussing forex ideas in the forum? When you
Join ValueForum ($$) now and pay securely by credit card, you are granted full member
access to read ''members only'' posts, and send and receive private messages. The cost of joining Value Forum is not a lot of
money relative to the great benefits received by chatting about forex and other topics with a private community of serious
investors and traders.
A 24-Hour Trial pass may be purchased for $5.99 to sample what ValueForum has to
offer; a 3-Month pass may be purchased for
6-Month pass may be purchased for $169.99, and a 12-Month pass may be purchased for
$299.99. Your purchase may be
tax-deductible as an investment expense -- always consult your accountant for tax-related questions.
As a guest, feel free to read the message headlines in the discussion forum
to get a sense of the topics currently under discussion (for instance see the number of posts this month in the various forex
/ currency focused topics of the forum), view the group polls (although poll results are visible to members only), and see what stocks the members have rated
strong buy - strong sell in the Stock Ratings area.
