  1. Per SEC regulation, our moderators are not investment advisors. Therefore, DO NOT ask any moderator to look at your watch list/portfolio in chat or by email, we simply will not answer.

  2. The moderators are under no obligation to tell you when or if they bought/sold a stock or at what price. You must decide on your own whether or not to initiate or exit a position.

  3. Refrain from swearing, implied swearing, political, disrespectful commentary, harassment and offensive remarks at all times.  There will be no warning for these types of behaviors, you will simply be muted from the chat room for the day. 

  4. From 9:00 am to 4:00 pm ET, limit off topic chat. Keep your trade ideas in real time, brief, meaningful and focused. All trade ideas are welcome but understand that the room will have no interest in illiquid stocks. Our focus will be on small caps, momentum and volume trades. Use General Chat to share trade ideas and alerts and use the Break Room for all other conversations.

  5. Use all CAPS for stock symbols and give a brief reason for your alert using Acronyms and Key Terminology below.

  6. Do not use outside links.Instead, shorten the link with the use of https://bitly.com/
