The problem with free services is that their community is not as valuable. People who are paying put a lot more thought and effort into their contributions on the board.

Hi Jim,

I think this is often an issue, but it doesn't have to be that way! How vibrant we make the board and community attached to the free portfolio is up to us, so I hope you'll join me and help make it more lively. I also see an upside: As the board will be open to all we may be more likely to draw in a valuable contributor or two that would not have found us behind the Global Gains walled garden.

Since the free service will only be covering a subset of GG holdings, I'm sure some of the stocks in my portfolio will not get coverage, so I'm suddenly on my own with stocks that are very difficult to follow, find information on, and understand.

This is, unfortunately, what is going to happen. But any of the GG stocks could make their way into the online portfolio. That will have a lot to do with how attractive the buying opportunity is, but I hope to be making at least one buy a month and these are all ideas I already have familiarity with and can act fairly quickly on.

Best,

Nathan
