    I think it's a waste.

    It clutters the board, and "Economy" was already a sufficient subforum for talking about the stock market.

    Economy could use more participation anyway.

    Why take a subject like economy, which would include things like the stock market by default, and break it down into sub-categories just to clutter the board?

    I could see if Economy was really busy, but it hardly is.

    The economy and the stock market are mutually inclusive, as far as I'm concerned.

    Just my 2 cents.

    3 what?

    How about this.

    We trade Elections 08 for Stock Market? At least the stock market is an ongoing subject. Elections 08 are over. Everything that needs to be said about it can be said in Politics.

    That's what MSNBC is for :D

    But you do make a good point. I forgot that the election isn't ENTIRELY over.

    Yes, keep it. Don't overload the economy sub-forum with stock talk. Stocks and the economy are not mutually exclusive.

    I disagree with THAT. Obviously the stock market controls OUR economy. However, the forum stays for the time being. We'll see how it works out.
