I thought it may be a good idea to create a sticky thread in this section which contains the meaning of acronyms.
I see so many thrown around the forums, either relating to economic terms (IRP, PPP, CPI, GDP etc), trading software (CMC, IB etc), market codes (SPI, DAX, etc) or exchanges (CBOT, SFE etc). Perhaps a thread where everyone can contribute the full name of the acronyms they use and a quick explanation, and then a list can be compiled would be a good idea. Perhaps when you use an acronym in a thread from now on, come back to this one and write up a quick explanation (if not already included). This way, it wont take up much of your time as its a do as you go process.
Makes it a lot easier for newbies or even experienced posters to then consult the acronym thread instead of reading posts and confusing the hell out of themselves (such as I do sometimes and as I am sure everyone else around here does at times).
Just a thought.
