Top 4 Singapore Share Investing Forums (+1 FB group) For Stock Discussion
Friday, 29 July 2016
Maybe you just started your investing journey.
You'd like to find someone to discuss about investing but no one in your family and friends share the same interest as you.
It can be hard to walk this journey alone. Below are the popular stock investing sites you can visit .
(The below is based on my personal opinion)
#1: Hardware Zone: Stocks, Shares and Indices
HWZ is the largest forum and the top few most visited site in Singapore, its has a very engaging audience on its money mind section. The discussion is light, fun and casual. Members are friendly and helpful even though there are times where a heated debate led to name calling and bashing but the moderators did a good job in controlling it.
I encourage starters to hang around the site and engage with the discussion as there are plenty nuggets of wisdom. Actually if without HWZ I probably would not have started learning about investing.
#2 Value Buddies
Its members are probably the oldest in the Singapore stock investing online community scene. The central theme of the forum is on value investing, applying fundamental based approach to stock investing, hence, it's not a place you want to go for technical analysis discussion. There are plenty of stock-specific threads where members share their views and discuss about stocks' fundamental.
Active members are much lesser than of HWZ. It is the place for serious stock discussion rather than to chill. There are many seasoned investors over there where you can learn valuable insights from. I often used this site to look up on the stocks I'm about to buy finding whether are there any red flag that I missed out.
#3 Shareinvestor Forum
This forum is run by ShareInvestor, a local stock data provider. I just noticed that this forum is only open for its paid members, it has a wide range of category ranging from property talk to commodity talk, general discussion and stock-specfifc discussion.
Based on its comment date, I can see that this forum is very active. Not just on one thread or section, but a plenty of them,
Site: ShareInvestor Fourm
#4 i3investor Forum
If any Malaysia investor who has not heard of I3 then he is not a real investor. Why? Because I3 is the largest Malaysia stock site, based on SimilarWeb it has a monthly views of 1,200,000!
I use this site extensively on Bursa stock when I'm looking up for prices, corporate action and annual report. The forum for Bursa stocks is very active but not so for Singapore stock but nonetheless it is worth a visit.
#5 Facebook Group (SGX Technical Analysis and Fundamental Analysis)
If you haven't joined this Facebook group then you probably have missed out a lot. It has over 27,000 members which is the largest SGX community group on Facebook. To know what are the latest stocks buzz that people are talking and sharing about? Then this is the group you want to be in.
So Now What?
Go create an account (if you haven't) and join in the discussion.
Let me know if I missed out any site:)
