Sometimes I notice there is a little confusion about which forum people should be posting their threads in. Here is a little rundown on what sort of threads should go in what forums.

Announcements and Site News: My forum to make announcements about ASF! Stay out! :D

ASX Stock Chat: General market commentary, sector analysis and anything about the Aussie market that doesn't relate to a specific stock.

Stocks A-H: Discussion of stocks with ASX codes beginning with A through H.

Stocks I-P: Discussion of stocks with ASX codes beginning with I through P.

Stocks Q-Z: Discussion of stocks with ASX codes beginning with Q through Z.

General Chat: Discussion of anything and everything other than topics that are more appropriate in other forums.

Beginners Lounge: Discussion of topics that are of specific interest to beginners to the stock market. Such topics may include basic concepts, beginners questions and any other topics stock market beginners may find particularly useful.

Trading/Investing Resources: Books, software, courses, newsletters, websites and any other resources designed to assist stock market traders and investors.

Derivatives: Discussion of topics related to options, CFDs, warrants, futures and bonds.

Commodities: Discussion of topics specifically related to exchange traded commodities. Discussion of stocks whose primary business is commodities related should take place in the 'ASX Stock Chat' forum. Here is a list of traded commodities: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_traded_commodities

International Markets: All discussion of non-Australian markets.

Forex: All discussion of currencies and topics related to the foreign exchange market.

Trading Strategies/Systems: Discussion of topics related to various trading strategies and systems. This is also the place to discuss the trading strategies and systems of others, including famous and renowned traders throughout history.

If anyone has any further questions, please ask. :)

Hi JB

Thanks for your post.

As a relative newbie to the ASF site I have, at times, found it challenging working out where to find things.


A thought - what about a Site Map on the tool bar?

Thanks for the information. I am a rank beginner at investment in fact the only reason I'm here is to learn and monitor my investment. I found the upsurge and increase in initial investment very stimulating but I'm currently experiencing a downturn and I'm getting very frustrated. I would therefore like to learn a lot more about investing and wondered if you'd be so kind as to point me in the right direction, even to purchasing the right sort of books or courses.
The investment I have is actually my life's super and as such want it to work like yesterday, so I can retire.

Hi prs,

If you are searching for books, courses or software I would take a good look through the 'Trading/Investing Resources' forum. You will find a lot of information there.

Best of luck.

Joe blow,

Is there an entrance point where one can locate all threads on a particular stock ( eg search function). I've been going around the long way trying to find a reference to a particular stock

Many thanks :D

MW,

There is a search fuunction in the top tool bar. You can either run a simple search or go 'advanced search' if the simple one is not good enough.

Hope this helps

Hi Muddy Waters,

As Prawn has suggested, the search function - found in the toolbar above - is the fastest way to find information on ASF. However, the general search only goes so far and for most purposes I recommend the use of the 'Advanced Search'. To get the most from the 'Advanced Search' please read this thread I started a few months ago to help people use it more effectively: https://www.aussiestockforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8380

Also, before starting a new thread, please perform a global keyword search to see if you can find an existing thread that covers the same topic, or perhaps even answers your question.

A lot of the reason why people's new threads on which is the best broker, or what are the best books for beginners to the stock market tend to elicit few responses these days is because the questions have been asked so many times before, and people get tired of answering them over and over again. A simple keyword search for "broker", "brokers" or "books beginners" will return a number of threads in the search results that will probably give you all the information you need.

Of course, if you can't find an appropriate thread please feel free to go ahead and start a new one. Even though ASF has been around for more than a decade there are still a lot of discussions we are yet to have.
