About the Active Trader Forum


Opalesque adds 100 new seats to realtime Active Trader Chat, the longest running, exclusive trading community of U.S. traders and hedge funds

Opalesque has added 100 new seats to the realtime Active Trader Chat, the longest running trading community of market professionals, traders and hedge funds focusing on the U.S. markets.

The Opalesque Active Trader forum offers a real time venue for active portfolio managers, professional traders and others to join in a community of their peers. This community discusses all aspects of the daily turn of events, including news alerts, technical levels, trade ideas, research and expertise collaboration etc.


Launched in 2001, over half of its members have been in the forum for over 5 years

The forum currently has over 150 active participants and is perhaps the longest running active forum in the business, having been active since 2001. It is unique as it has been built upon a “referral only” strategy, thus allowing it to grow over 7 years in a stable and organic environment. Interestingly, in what can be a very fickle marketplace, more than 50% of the members have been in the forum for over 5 years.

Opalesque makes 100 new seats available for this exclusive online community. Once the 100 seats have been taken, the forum will close again. Free one month trials are available at the link below and will be allotted on a first-come, first served basis.


Know it first

"When I need information on a stock quickly I always look in the Active Trader Forum first. When I need the edge, that's where I go. The information flow and color rivals that of any high powered trading desk on the street."
David C Nelson, CEO of DC Nelson Asset Mgmt. LLC.

In the words of the moderator, “this forum is not for everyone, but if you need to know why the market is moving, what moved it and why, we almost always know it first. That’s the power of community, and nowhere is the strength of community more powerful than in the markets”. “The community aspect also comes into play as traders need help catching up on all the Wall Street research that comes out intraday and overnight. We really help each other out”.

The moderator of the Opalesque Active Trader Forum is a 15 year trading veteran, and has been instrumental in creating a flourishing community of professional traders who work together daily to beat the markets. The Forum also includes members who are regular contributors on Fox TV, CNBC and many other financial websites. The traders and portfolio managers in the forum run the gamut from independent traders to multibillion dollar funds.


"It consistently makes me money"

"I pay the forum the highest compliment - it consistently makes me money!"
Christopher Hurd, Hill Financial Group, Rowayton, CT.

"Particularly in these times of enormous volatility, a professional resource like the Active Trader Forum pays for itself many times over."
Robert B. Ladd, Managing Partner, Laddcap Value Advisors LLC


Real names only

The Opalesque Active Trader Forum is a essential tool for any trader or manager who is active in the U.S. markets. The service runs 24 hours, but is active during the hours of 8am to 6pm. All members use their own (real) names to insure a fair playing ground. This is NOT a chat board like one might see on Yahoo.com’s finance page. This is a business community of market professionals centered around the U.S. Markets collaborating and communicating in real time.

David C Nelson, CEO, DC Nelson Asset Mgmt. LLC.

"The Active Trader Forum is informative and very timely. I have tried various other chat forums and have found them self promotional and stale. The quality of the participants, the strong direction of the moderator and the integrity of the information make the forum world class. I find it helpful in generating shorter term trade ideas and helping me make good buy and sell decisions on my longer term positions."

Greg Tuerk, President
Trabuco Capital Management

"The forum allows me to access the collective wisdom of an exclusive group of well-informed market participants, speeding up my buy and sell decisions, so that I no longer feel like the last guy in a trade."
