Definitely a good idea. I always thought a FAQ would be good as well. Agreeing on how it is written might be a problem, though!

re: A Who's Who of the Money Board...
I have posted on here many times that I never know what the stock market is going to do or why. I'm always a little suspect of anyone who claims they know what's going to happen in the market.

I got lucky and called the market bottom on here in March, 2009 and went all in after going to almost all cash in late 2007.

But I based that call on one factor at that time. The fear in the market was so great (more than I've ever seen it) that if Warren Buffett is correct that we should be greedy when others are fearful and fearful when others are greedy, then that was the perfect time to be greedy.

To refresh everyone's memory, the market peaked at 14,198 in October, 2007 and fell to an intra-day low of 6,469 on March 9, 2009, losing over 50% of its value in about 18 months. Difficult times.

The credit markets had seized up and the Federal Reserve had to announce it would guarantee bank interbank loans and most corporate commercial paper just to get the credit markets functioning again.

When I started a thread the end of February, 2009 and said it would be time to go all in the market before the end of March, the replies I got were pretty blunt. One poster, MileHigh, said there would be no functioning stock market by the end of March. That seems funny now but many people had that opinion back then.

But now it appears to me others are being greedy.

A *little* suspect?

By the way, Russia likes to troll a bit in here, but always in a good way.

We went all in about that time. Then we proceeded to watch things plummet from 745 to 666. God that was a tedious time. I had no idea I could have blamed you for our two week mistiming. Damn it!


Of course the ride back up was pretty sweet

If you remember MileHigh and his "brother" Colonel Hapablap (spelling?) they gave me hell for several days as the market continued to fall before it bottomed out.
I made sure to remind them later when the market had gone up about 25% in six months.

Brink, I think Greenhead is an engineer in the oil industry, but I'm not sure.


Well this greenhead is no engineer. Although petroleum engineering sounds pretty damn good.

I'm actually in medical school. I worked as a junior equity analyst for 2 yrs- but pretty much exclusively in Emerging Markets

I can pretty much answer any question concerning credit reporting and some on bank operations.

Hey Brink, would you mind adding Disability and LTC to the insurance I specialize with? If people are curious about that stuff, I want them to know they are more than welcome to ask questions about those too, and that I don't just do Life.

Thanks man, and I appreciate the vote of confidence.
