Terms and rules

Welcome to The Stock Exchange Forum! These are the rules and terms & conditions for using our website, located at thestockexchange.com.au. By accessing our website, you agree to follow these rules and terms & conditions. If you don't agree, please stop using our website.


  • Opinions, Not Advice: Posts are opinions, not licensed advice. Don't base investment decisions solely on these opinions. Consult licensed financial providers when needed. Posters may be anonymous; losses incurred by relying on posts cannot be recovered.
  • Legal Boundaries: Encouraging illegal activity will not be tolerated and may lead to a ban.
  • Respectful Communication: Treat everyone with respect. Profanity is allowed as long as it's not abusive or excessive. Personal attacks are not allowed.
  • Healthy Debates: Heated debates about stocks are allowed and encouraged, as long as they stay respectful and don't devolve into personal attacks or flaming.
  • Privacy is Key: Don't try to identify or reveal the identity of any other member. Keep discussions within the community anonymous.
  • Problems? Report, Don't Retaliate: If there's a problem with a post or member, report it instead of escalating the situation.
  • Proper Reporting: Only report posts or members that violate these rules. Misuse of the report function may lead to a ban.
  • Moderation: If you break these rules, a moderator may step in. This is not a reason to complain.
  • No Spamming or Self-Promotion: Self-promotion, spam, and irrelevant links are not allowed.
  • Thread Creation and Replies: Threads and replies that may not seem immediately relevant or productive are allowed, as long as they're not blatantly off-topic or disruptive.
  • English Only: Please write all posts in English to ensure everyone in the community can understand.
  • Sharing Buy/Sell Decisions: Feel free to share your buy or sell decisions, as long as you provide some analysis or rationale that can spark a constructive conversation.
  • Sentiment Switching: It's normal for opinions to change based on new information or market conditions. However, blatant and constant sentiment switching to manipulate discussions will not be tolerated.
