NEW! AAII Discussion Boards
The newest interactive tool available at AAII.com is Discussion Boards. These member-only forums are a great way for you to interact with other members, exchange investing ideas, discuss hot topics, share experiences and more.
You can find a link to the Discussion Boards on the top menu bar on the AAII homepage, or go to www.aaii.com/discussions/boards.
This new area of AAII.com was created to give members a forum to share investing ideas, ask questions and answer others’ questions, and discuss financial experiences.
Use of the Discussion Boards requires a different (free) registration from that used to access AAII.com. To register, you fill out a simple form and then look for an automatic E-mail that will be sent to your preferred E-mail address. The E-mail will come from firstname.lastname@example.org. The E-mail provides a link to access the boards and a username and password, which can be changed after logging in.
First-time users should start by reading the FAQ section (a link is available at the top of the Discussion Boards homepage). You will learn more about registering and logging in to use the forums, how to respond to existing discussions, and how to create new topics.
The Discussion Boards are broken down by topic, and then are grouped by more narrow subtopics. The Portfolios group includes discussion forums for AAII’s Stock Screens and Model Portfolios. The Investing Topics group includes the subtopics Computerized Investing, investing basics, stocks, bonds, funds/ETFs, portfolio management, and AAII’s Stock Investor Pro software program. Finally, the General topic group is for “Watercooler Talk,” which includes all hot topics outside of investing.
Many features of the boards can be customized. You can search the boards by keyword; change the layouts of topic views and color schemes; subscribe to forums and be notified when new comments are posted; send and receive private messages to and from other members; as well as block users.
