I have been investing in the stock market since 1988, when I opened an IRA with $2,000. I started to provide a forum for me and my friends to discuss stocks and trade ideas.

After a while, it seemed like I was posting 90 to 95% of the comments on, so I figured, what the heck, it'll be a Web site with one user in mind - me! Anyone else with access to the Web is invited to contribute comments in Open Forum. Also, I hope that some of my analysis, opinions, and stock trading history will be valuable to others.

So with me as the primary user of this site, I have structured to:

1. provide quick access to the most valuable investing Web sites
2. provide myself the ability to record a log in Open Forum to see my transaction history and opinions over the years
3. provide fodder for interesting conversation with my friends when I make great picks, as well as horrible picks
