I have been a rather silent observer within the past few weeks. One reason was due to my personal work and secondly I realized that spending time to comment on posts without base will only give rise to unnecessary arguments for which I do not have time for.

I just wanted to share the below with you , if we want to have a forum and CSE left for the future.

1) Stop promoting shares without reason. If one has ethics left and value humanity, just do not think about your personal gains only. Think about damage that can do to people who buy promoted crap at higher prices. Do you just want to make money with blood on your hands?

If you want to talk about a share give some reasons. Don;t say a Rs 3 share will hit RS 20 or a Rs 100 share will hit Rs 300 soon without reason.


2) Stop insulting long term member of this forum who had done good work overs years.

I saw Smallville amongst many others being attacked. If one talk sense or trying to instill ethical stock market education , they are attacked by certain new account holders who appear to be only concerned about personal gains.

Talking fundamentals is Suicide in this forum as I see more and more new comers becoming gamblers and speculators talking about money they made gambling and ridiculing people who held fundamentals .

This is what happens during bear trends as psycology plays weird games with your minds.
Make money some how right? Who cares about ethics and humanity .

WAKE UP. MONEY IS SOMETHING BUT IS IT EVERYTHING? BEING A HUMAN CARRIES OTHER DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES.


3) Stop using abusive language and communicate in respectful manner.
Filth and abuse is increasing in this forum.

Are we here to talk stock market or have a competition to show superiority though abuse ?


4) Becalm and collect yourself . I know it is not an easy task as things look unstable now.
But do you want to panic with the other people who panic and make the market even worse?

Just think if all retailers form a union and decides "I won;t sell for 3 days" unless a buyer buys at my
price. I won;t sell my fundamentally strong shares at absurdly low prices.


Can anything positive happen to the market?



5) Understand that you bought these shares for a pre-determined Investment period .

Think like this.
You put a 2 years FD. You cannot withdraw until 2 years are up. If the bank you invested in goes though a period of Tier1 and Tiers 2 capital falling near thresholds, do you panic and try to withdraw your deposit just because of that? Do you not have faith in the management. It could be a short term problem and after 2 years you with greater possibility will get the FD return you planned for.

The issue now as I can see is that many people do not have investment plans and have only short term vision at CSE. These people will naturally follow trend an panic more compared to people with Long term vision.


WAKE UP FORUM , WAKE UP CSE.



Most of the world reacts to positive and negative news with moderation. CSE reacts with extreme either positive or negative.

Bad get pushed up. Good gets pushed down. When time for a natural uptrend it it killed by selfish people. When it is time for a natural correction it manipulated by selfish people.

Let me ask you why is a Rs 2.50 share nobody wanted to subscribed to initially now reaching Rs 8 with so much buying interest. And some say it will go to Rs 20. All is in the mind and trend and not in the principles.

The same time why is a share with a PE of 8 and possible growth due to future supply and expansion going down everyday? Who is responsible?

Also why are certain companies in Large Cap famous Group of companies still trading at very high PE values uplifting the market PE while other good shares have to suffer. Who makes this decision?

WE SEEM TO DIG OUR OWN GRAVE AT CSE DUE TO OUR EXTREME ACTIONS AND SHORT TERM PANIC.

I totally agree with you Slstock, but ?what is the remedy, as the very idea of the forum is to allow members to express their views freely. If the forum rules are applied strictly many members will stand suspended. ?May I suggest another way to handle this without compromising the freedom of expression.

The current prison can entertain really bad posts and have some other icons such as "promoters" etc., to re-group the posts under their intended purposes, so that any one who reads the post will know that it is a promotion etc.,.

I think there are remedies for the issues from our forum members, but I do not know how many will come forward.
Hope everything will be OK in near future.
Keep it up your good work slstock.

Thanks a lot slstock.
Still I couldn't understand so many of our forum members.
Why they are behaving like this?
I think this forum politicised too much.
Keep up your wonderful support to the forum.
Time will rectify everything. (We'll hope)

Thanks slstock for sharing the fact.

When I joined to this forum almost a year ago, there were many genuine posts. But unfortunately we are not able to see such post these days. I don't see any posts from innam, stockswatch, cse.alpha, tubal, mark, gann etc.

These days I have become almost a spectator to this forum due to my personal work.

Hi,
It’s been few months since I started reading the posts in this forum and I think I have come a long way since that. People used to share their experience, knowledge and news articles which I found very useful.
People talk about the 1000 post club. I see some who are close to it or have reached, who has hardly contributed to the benefit of the forum. We should always remember that there are over 6000 forum members and many more reading it. You should ask yourself, is this worth reading by others?. Not a post to increase the number of posts by one.
You could always ask questions where sometime back you got nice answers from the people who had experience. But now if a new comer asks something, you would get a reply like "Do your own analysis" and another seconding it with "Well said".
Before you post something, please ask yourself, does this do good to the forum members/will somebody benefit from this post?
I have very less experience in investing in stock market. But one day, I hope I could make a contribution so that others would benefit.
Senior members, there could be many criticism on your efforts. But there are also people who value your contribution very much and learn from it.

Totally agree with you Slstock. I see some senior members been frequently attacked by newcomers.Everyone has the right to express their views but you should be able to justify your ideas with facts figures and evidence.

We are lucky to have at least few seniors in the forum at present contributing their valuable time and effort.Seniors please don't get discouraged by these nonsense,keep up your good work.

I personally believe there are a lot of silent members who learn from you so please keep posting don't keep us in the dark. Smile

Agree with slstock. What I can see is most of our new comers are promoting their shares and fighting just like Cat & Dogs. And the forum has become a mess. Dear Experts, I think this is the high time to add your valuable posts. Small, we always with you brother. Keep posting your valuable ideas.
