So there's always talk about starting a 'biz' that's a bit more 'permanent' than the regular /biz/, and we always talk about 'team investing', and pooling money together, but there just isn't a place to do that right now for us
I'm putting forth the idea of making a website for us who want a more forum like /biz/ site where we can post our predictions on a daily basis and work together to benefit, because on 4chan /biz/ everyone doesn't give a shit and good information gets lost in archives that not a lot of people have time to look for.
on the forum i could set up a stock prediction discussion section where we predict things about the market, i can setup an 'all you need to know about investing' so newfags don't constantly post the same questions here
we can also setup a college information section and rank degrees from best to worst, as well each of us who are currently doing a degree or working in that field could write up something for it, and we could basically have all that information in one easy spot for newfags and us to look over.
Basically what I'm proposing is a /biz/ Wikipedia type thing, or /biz/ Encyclopedia, where we can all gather and share information, all the while actually having useful information that's up to date.
I'm not looking to make money off of you guys, I don't mind paying the $10 - $15 a year to host it or w/e on a site, the thing I'd like to know from you guys right now is, would you be interested in something like that?
I could password protect the site, and post the password once a week on /biz/ and I would actively ban users who shitpost, and delete irrelevant useless information and/or users from it, so we could have a 'clean' experience, focused JUST around /biz/ information.
This morning i was chuckling hard! I was imagining collectively we are still poorfags owning maybe maybe 500 of any one stock. but we all agree to join conference earnings calls and grill them on the plans to improve their shortfalls.
> Hello, this is Anon - representing /biz/natches. First of all we congratulate you all on your quarter performance. What are your thoughts on improving X
.... all the JP Morgan, Merril Lynch, and Goldsman sachs deughbags are on the other line confused as all hell.
>... what the fuuuck?
I kind of wish there were more tripfags on /biz/ because there's shit advice 95% of the time, and amazing advice 5% of the time and if certain people had track records that'd be pretty cool
This has been tried before and even on other boards.
The result is always the same
99% of this site consists of teenagers, little kids, neets, and autists.
It's a good idea, but it just doesn't work, because you'll quickly find yourself up to your ears in pure retardation.
The biggest revelation is when you find out that the shit you think is "trolling" on 4chan is stuff that these idiots actually believe.
Something to remember is the SEC has publicly traded companies by the balls - companies are required to be transparent with their information.
4Chan is not good at lot of things, but one thing we can say 4Chan is good at quickly finding out news before it hits the general public. I think we just need start making an effort in citing sources, troll attempts without sources can be weeded out quickly if we can't verify claims
Yo homies. How about one big sticky to redirect people?
Kind of like how /fit/ always says READ THE STICKY. We could redirect them to the 4chan /biz/ affiliate site you are proposing (granted its worthy enough).
I think the problem with /biz/ is that there are so many different opinions on stocks and the economy that even the smart people can't agree let alone the trolls
That's why it's been hard to organize anything constructive like a sticky on basic reading materials and let alone advice on TA and whether it's bullshit or not
True. What if we, in the theoretical sticky, outline different styles of trading day trading,short, long -- degrees of risk/reward conservative ~2% Gainz per year "GzPY", moderate 4-5% GzPY, agressive 5-10%, Go balls deep ????%
This way you can tell who the OP's intended audience is. So we can skip boring conservative fags trading coffee commodities and shit
If we had a sticky I think it should go something like this
[things in parenthesis is the reading material]
--Stock Market (and similar financial markets)
>macro economics (basic reading material)
>types of investment vehicles, and their basics (broker info and general explanations)
>stock selection basics (financial statement analysis, comparative analysis, macro trends)
>trading strategies (no opinion on TA except it should not be the first strategy you learn)
--Real estate (should possibly have its own section)
>basic information about renting
>whatever else you need to know about real estate investing
-Resume's and job searching
--Other types of business
GET RICH QUICK
>>Get rich quick --> kneepads
Bruh! I just got an idea, i think i may end up reaching out to Robinhood,and ask them top help sponsor this or at least give us swagg.
We will be educating the masses and shillin their app.
No doubt. Their model is a perfect fit for us poorfags who are willing learn dabble in investing. When the other brokers charge up the ass to buy and sell its a no brainer.
> " Robinhood calculates that in total it has saved its users $5 million in trade fees in just the last month."
Less professional, more pepes plz.
i already bought the domain man guys
i also bought the hosting service
and i already started making a site
and I'm in the process of getting the domain name to redirect to the forum site name
i wasn't doing nothing, but i wanted to get something working finished before showing it
I'm not hating on him doing the work, or beating me to the punch, but he could have done a bit more work first bruh
yeah we can work together, I'm just getting the barebones setup and once that's done ill post the link here for everyone to make accounts with
then this weekend ill link it to the real domain
right now its just the forum hosted on proboards, but tomorrow ill make the website for the "sticky" type of website, where we post all the archive info, and this proboards forum will just be for discussions and ill link to both
i considered buying 500$ shii required to make ~$10 month - plug it in my work comp and never shut down my work comp. Let my employer get the bill... take that ~10 and and grow it? meme shit like that?
Just registered, Ricky reporting in. I'll probably lurk more then post since I don't have too much information to contribute unless it's social media/dropshipping related and a few other niche things like AdSense.
>tfw the verification system on it is the same one 4chan uses to let you post
Fucking waste of time. 99% of /biz/ are retarded 20 somethings that want to make a buck no matter how unethical it is. It just means that you'll get fucked in the end because everyone here is just looking to do the fucking.
> Shitposting on /biz/ at 36 yrs old. I know a little bit.
I don't think anyone has nearly enough money to shill people to bid a stock up for them
Other than that I can't think of a way to rip people off
Speaking of which we should find extremely illiquid penny stocks and shill reddit, or anyone to bid the stock up for us (I'm pretty sure that's essentially what TBEV did to us and reddit)
a lot of banks that operate online generally pay higher interest rates than store banks, i know PC financial and tangerine bank (Canada though) do offer higher than average interest rates
not sure about US stuff
ill see how many mods we need first, already have 1 admin and 2 mods, so 4 people for only a forum with 20 members is enough for now, I'll add 1 mod, every 10 users from now on, and you'll be next.
I've made it.
I shit post here to warn the foolish.
I don't think you guys realize that you aren't a band of brothers ... you'll literally fuck each other over at the first sign of a profit. You're acting like a bunch of bandits and should be treated as such.
That's exactly what I said.

Yet you don't hear me lying about my life to seem impressive do you? (Not mocking you, mocking the 36 year old grand wizard)
yet you don't hear me trying to lie about it do you?
Yo, I know this is 4chan guys. But, I really would like to see the board be successful. I see a lot of fucking loose /b/tards and /pol/acks here like >>920797. Who gives a fuck if he's lying on the internet? It's up to you to listen to him or not.
I just want to see everyone on /biz/ make it ;_; I know only a small percentage of us will though because 4chan is cancer and we all just fight and compare dicks on the byzantine precious metal forum.
C-can't we all just get along and learn to make money and share information together?
m8, if any of what you've written isn't a lie then why the scheckles are you lurking on this thread when you could bone your D1 cheerleader and then take a victory lap in a swimming pool of gold afterwards?
>I'll let you think that one through
>If your drinking some pussy drink I'm just gonna laugh even more, please don't tell me it's vodka
I don't need people to suck my cock on this board. There's not a possible way for me to prove it without jeopardizing my privacy ... and you know it.
Take it or leave it man. I'm leaving this thread.
I love you guys ... we're all going to make it.
I've actually heard diet coke + liquor gets you more buzzed then liquor + coke, don't know why. You lose points for the Bacardi, should've made it a dark liquor.
>Master race Hennesy reporting in
>"We're all going to make it" but I've already made it kek
I know I'm not as old as you wise grand wizard but I can tell you didn't leave, no need to restate it.
Nothing wrong with Bacardi, I've drank it plenty of times I just feel like at the end of the day it's more of a feminine drink.
Feel free to start regurgitating your bank account information oh wise Wizard
>mfw I'm not even buzzed and I feel like the captcha verification keeps getting harder over the years, due to having to scroll down at just the right second to hit verify
There are too many boards on the site right now for such a small community
Would it perhaps be a good idea to combine some boards until the community warrants separate boards?
>All 4 boards under "Real estate" could become one board
>All 3 boards under "Career discussions" could become one "Career discussions" board
>All boards under "Entrepreneurship" become one board
>"Passive income" board goes under the "Entrepreneurship" category instead of its own group
What do you think?
IMO, it's better to have fewer boards with more activity than a bunch of slow boards. Helps keep the community consolidated.
I like the idea of Canada section ( I even suggested it) but it might be more efficient to just create an international subforum by country [Canada, Australia, Japan, Zimbabwe] OR just have people put the country name in the thread to allow for easy searching under one international forum.
Also I plan on doing some writing on credit cards, most of my info heavily plagiarized like the DRIP stuff. I'd like for us to be able to compare banks by country and credit cards to help everyone get a better deal.
As I'm Canada I'll be shilling the fuck out of TD Canada Trust for people who have $5000+
I don't see why a wiki wouldn't work. /fa/ and /g/ both have wikis, the /fit/ sticky is basically a wiki but since fitness isn't as broad of a subject, it just needs one page. Forums tend to deteriorate into shitposts, hiveminding, and dick sucking even with proper moderation.
Setup a wiki with introductions to different industries/concepts (Trading, Affiliate Marketing, Entrepreneurship, All types of investments, Choosing a Major, etc - Basically an FAQ of /biz/) and let people ask questions/discuss on /biz/ itself.
maybe something this?
we cant host it on another site i think, proboards doesn't allow it lol (read this, AFTER i made it) :(
most we can do is link a domain to our site, which proboards charges $14/year for
hmm ill look into that right now, maybe you could create a new custom page and put that on there?
actually it seems like something important to have access too, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
idk, lets leave that for now and see what else we can tune
>have to sign up to view posts
>pretentious rules (and administration, presumably)
>most active discussion is on the meta board
This is hilariously awful. Not gonna make it. Wiki is a better option.
2-3 days in, and we're basically done with site functionality, just gotta add loads of content from content sources and our own sources now
I'd say we're doing pretty well so far, mr YMMUJveo.
1. /biz/ is one of the lowest traffic board. there is a reason for that. most people are poor as fuck, especially young people. they dont have money to invest so they lack interest in money and investing in general
2. there are thousands of better "biz" forums out there with some real professionals putting up daily updates, forecasts etc.
people at biz represent the few percent of 20-35 year olds who actually have some money
if you want a forum, even a fuckin pokemon forum will generate more traffic and possibly add income than a finance forum
>Only works if you know how to spell though and you don't come off as a scrub.
you have a point, but I'm not giving up the combination of dank anon memes and actual information about finance/money/business/markets
Historically I would say you would be right, but with the introduction of the Robinhood app and the momentum they are experiencing I can totally see the younger crowed growing. Especially once /biz/ninjas begin sharing their wins.
/biz/ninja essentially is the first wave of the younger crowd looking to learn and dabble at investing. Younger ppl and "real profesionals" wouldnt work well together because "real profesionals" expect real compensation.
We offer free critisim, free knowledge, you invest what you can when you want. Besides they dont have sweet meems and pepe
> one thing we can say 4Chan is good at quickly finding out news before it hits the general public. I think we just need start making an effort in citing sources, troll attempts without sources can be weeded out quickly if we can't verify claims
Checked for truth. Even if it's just a URL to some dumbfuck on stocktwits, it could still be timely. Sauce is important to post.
