Well, METARs, the new system seems to be operating. I guess it will take some getting used to, but it’s probably not rocket science.
The MacroEconomic Trends And Risks (METAR) Board is devoted to large (Macro) economic changes that change the risk balance of stocks, bonds, real estate and any other investment category in the U.S. and internationally. Posts about individual investments (e.g. a particular company’s stock) are also welcome.
METAR seeks a balance of many investment approaches to prevent “information cascades” where we all agree with each other. Most METARs are experienced and somewhat skeptical investors but newbies are also welcome.
Board rules are strictly enforced. We maintain a cordial, rational discussion board.
No partisan politics! Mention of political parties, politicians and political movements (e.g. conservative, progressive, etc.) are not allowed. Posts will be pulled. No mention of proposed laws that are being considered UNTIL THEY ARE ACTUALLY PASSED AND SIGNED INTO LAW since those tend to be very partisan and usually aren’t passed in their interim forms anyway.
No personal insults or trolling.
No religious proselytizing.
METAR is an acronym for a type of aviation weather report. METARs often try to forecast the investment weather…but these forecasts tend to be as reliable as most weather reports.
I look forward to many years of discussion.
