The Mishedlo Board is the most diverse board at TMF. There are traders, economy watchers, chartists, you name it. There is almost no idle chatter and no fighting or flaming. Each week we discover more and more lurkers. People from all over TMF have discovered this board, and yet it has not deteriorated like many of the other boards despite its popularity. People go there to learn and to profit, and newcomers are always welcomed. There are no cliquish inside jokes like I've seen on many boards. It's a serious board, and Mishedlo seriously deserves to be recognized for the work that he puts into this community on a daily basis.

He has welcomed everyone regardless of view or opinion. Very few boards here at the Fool can say that. The attention and effort he has shown has helped tremendously.

If anyone deserves it it's him....

Regards....

Yer kidding. It's almost all idle chatter about interpretations of economic data and chart patterns, i.e. cocktail party banter. Occasionally, ok frequently, they will bash Greenspan. : Þ

Whenever I look at the Top Boards, Mishedlo is up there. There are some boards higher up the ranking, all Amusing boards, but Mishedlo is always the top board for Educating and Enriching.

Maybe that says it all, but let's go and look at why it might be.


The board's mission seems to be to make money together. Nicely. Maybe many boards have that as their mission. This one succeeds.

"Mish" sets the tone for the board, and reinforces it with continuous postings of linked material, thoughts and responses. His tentacles reach out far and wide to bring in both emerging themes and reinforce current views.

Others on the board are inspired by these efforts and add further material and thoughts, and debate what has been laid out.

Trading ideas vary from the “trade wind” variety of for example buying bonds for a couple of years, to day to day trading of individual stocks and options.

Helpful themes such as “aggressive” accounting, pension problems, debt problems, stock option shenanigans are all debated here early and fully.

But it's not a bear board. Many times long trades are posted with justification. Just as short trades are. It's a winning board.

All ideas related to the economy and markets are welcomed. Those readers not enjoying one aspect just move along to the next. So criticism is kept to a minimum and all are encouragd to share thoughts.

The board is home to market professionals, keen active traders, experienced cynics and others … all aiming to continue to develop.

Flames are very rare; because on this board they soon embarass the writer more than anyone else …


So why is this board such a roof-raising success?

Remember, “Mish” sets the tone. And reinforces it daily. He provides the meat from links and news items. This is his working day.

Mish senses the macro themes. Many people do. Not so many are so open about posting for others.

Mish tries to zig and zag with the market. Many people do. Not so many are so open about posting for others.


But most importantly for me in this age of “it's OK to get rich any way you can” is that Mish is so utterly ethical and decent. In the way he treats people. New people. People he is debating with. People upset with him. People he is upset with.

Other members of the board then empathise and try to match his standards. It's true that one reacts to the way one is treated. This all makes the board such a fulfilling place to hang out.


So of course Mish also sees as clearly as anyone the excesses and frauds in the market, and comments every time. While so many deceits abound, some-one with such a clear sense of right and wrong not only senses immediate trading opportunities in this environment but helps to chart the difficult-to-see but inevitable course of the future of the markets.


IMHO Integrity wins. I hope you agree.


Plunger.

It is difficult for me to point to a particular post and say, "This is why Mishedlo deserves Le Feste." In fact, the whole point is that he stimulates such a diverse discussion, not limited to just one topic, sector, strategy, or style. But, maybe some of his more recent Soapbox ramblings can show his range.

May 17 -- gives a play-by-play example of the kind of gyrations he's had to go through just to turn a profit. I'm not sure what he was trying to do, but he convinced me to not become a daytrader. ;)

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=17230870

June 26 -- asks the question we've all asked ourselves at one time or another, "Is the market on crack?"

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=17416588

June 28 -- welcomes newcomers with a warning about recklessness in this market, "OPTIMISM IS CRUSHED."

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=17435572

July 11 -- recommends focusing on capital preservation. "Trade it, don't marry it."

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=17498197

Aug. 8 -- makes an anti-bottom call (again).

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=17660958

Aug. 18 -- find your strategy and stick to it, but either stay underleveraged or nimble, or that light at the end of the tunnel could be a freight train headed your way.

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=17705796

Aug. 30 -- when is a hound not a dog? Tech could lead in a rally, precisely because it's so despised.

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=17760548

Sep. 15 -- gently takes the focus back from politics to trading, and gives a very simple reason why the bottom is (still) not in.

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=17841344

Oct. 1 -- warns bears of a possible rally, even though he sees the long-term trend as down.

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=17941467

Oct. 19 -- touches on many different, specific, fundamental weaknesses and risks to explain to bulls why he sees the rally as tradable, but only with caution.

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=18018907

Nov. 1 -- rants on charts. Why? Because he can.

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=18088570

I came, I saw, I learned, I had fun.

Cheers,

It's simple really, the Fool is about sharing and education, right?

No other board I have seen on this site comes as close to this ideal as the Mish board. AFAIAC, the Mish board IS the Fool. Thanks to Mishedlo, it is the most widely informative board I have come across on the internet. It is the number one reason why I subscribe to the Fool.

Best,
Rien.

(PS: there is no number two, without the Mish board, I would not subscribe)

Mish has created a board that allows spirited debate on a very broad range of topics, and somehow keeps the peace. Oh, yeah, I also actually began to make money in this market by watching, listening and learning on this board. Wow.

Hear - hear. I concur. I went from having Mish on ignore to being a devotee of his board b/c I tend to be of the cheerleading elk (sp?) and now I see more of the "real" picture out there. Besides, the guy never seems to run out of steam and comes up with tons of info round the clock. Plus one can disagree and not get totally "slimed" (my new word for flamed) That's all for now folks!

Mishedlo tried to warn us about the abyss three years ago, but we were too busy showing others our brains and ignoring charts... Mishedlo deserves the award for truly educating and being right (and incidentally not buying or mouthing the Fool creed of long term buy and hold). He has proven that there is much to learn from shorts and traders and the charts, the charts, the charts...

" I thought that was trenchrat"

Correct, it was, or rather is...... and surprised that he has not been mentioned. In fact, no disrespect to Misheldo, but apart from the consistent bearish side to Mish and the fact that his predictions were fairly accurate a few years back, he has learnt an awful lot from the master, what is Is, da ratman, Trenchrat, he of " Charts don't lie, people do". Anyone want to give this a go? Knee, where are you?

Happy Thanksgiving.
Bran.
