New York, NY, December 18, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- The Opalesque Active Trader forum offers a real time venue for active portfolio managers, professional traders and others to join in a community of their peers. This community discusses all aspects of the daily turn of events, including news alerts, technical levels, trade ideas, research and expertise collaboration etc.
Launched in 2001, over half of its members have been in the forum for over 5 years.
The forum currently has over 150 active participants and is perhaps the longest running active forum in the business, having been active since 2001. It is unique as it has been built upon a “referral only” strategy, thus allowing it to grow over 7 years in a stable and organic environment. Interestingly, in what can be a very fickle marketplace, more than 50% of the members have been in the forum for over 5 years.
Opalesque makes 100 new seats available for this exclusive online community. Once the 100 seats have been taken, the forum will close again. Free one month trials are available at http://www.opalesque.com/index.php?act=chat and will be allotted on a first-come, first served basis.
Know it first
"When I need information on a stock quickly I always look in the Active Trader Forum first. When I need the edge, that's where I go. The information flow and color rivals that of any high powered trading desk on the street," says David C Nelson, CEO of DC Nelson Asset Mgmt. LLC.
In the words of the moderator, “this forum is not for everyone, but if you need to know why the market is moving, what moved it and why, we almost always know it first. That’s the power of community, and nowhere is the strength of community more powerful than in the markets. The community aspect also comes into play as traders need help catching up on all the Wall Street research that comes out intraday and overnight. We really help each other out”.
The moderator of the Opalesque Active Trader Forum is a 15 year trading veteran, and has been instrumental in creating a flourishing community of professional traders who work together daily to beat the markets. The Forum also includes members who are regular contributors on Fox TV, CNBC and many other financial websites. The traders and portfolio managers in the forum run the gamut from independent traders to multibillion dollar funds.
"It consistently makes me money."
"I pay the forum the highest compliment - it consistently makes me money," says Christopher Hurd from Hill Financial Group in Rowayton, CT. Robert B. Ladd, Managing Partner, Laddcap Value Advisors LLC adds: "Particularly in these times of enormous volatility, a professional resource like the Active Trader Forum pays for itself many times over."

This hybrid financial news service, which combines proprietary industry news stories and filtered third party reports, has been credited by many industry insiders with delivering precise, accurate, and vital information to a notoriously guarded audience.
