Hi there, so I've been on this site for a couple months but thought I should actually introduce myself. I'm a 29 year old guy in Nova Scotia, originally from Newfoundland but moved away about 7 years ago. I've been interested in money and investing for years and about 3 years ago started investing in mutual funds. I have my own house with a small mortgage, no other debt, while also going to grad school to further my career. I earn a decent income in health care that lets me save quite a bit of money on a regular basis.

I enjoy reading, travel, visiting Newfoundland to spend time with family and friends when I'm not busy with work and school. Here's to learning as much about investing as I can and sharing ideas with everyone.

Cheers!

Hi there,

My name is Brendan, I just thought that I'd drop you all a line to say hello.

I'm originally from Trinidad and Tobago, a small Caribbean island. If you ever visit there hit me up I'd be happy to provide you with some cool sights and food recommendations.

I'm a huge buffet fan and I got into investing after taking a course on "Value Investing" during my MBA. Given that I don't have time to research stocks, I decided to become an index investor. However, I'm always on the look out for great companies at undervalued prices.

Hi, I'm a 23 years old, with an interest in finance. I love trying investments. For example, I got a couple of dollars in bitcoins during the summer, they are worth almost four times their initial value. I have experience with mutual funds, but a lot less with other kind of investments.

I studied in chemistry, and I'm finishing my first contract after university. I'm considering studying in another subject to be able to work closer to home.

My hobbies are very artsy, and I love music, painting and everything DIY.

I'm back...

Finally got my account reset (Thank you to cmfadmin). Used to post under Gordo99 but fell off the map a couple years ago when the site changed hands.

Have been reading this site for years and gained much so will be nice to contribute again the odd time now that I am able.

New member introduction

Hi there, by way of an introduction, my wife and I are both ex-pats from the UK. We've lived in Canada for 28 years. We're considering retiring to the UK (are we nuts?) and we'll be looking for any advice on RRSP's/RRIF's and getting the funds over to the UK, along with deemed dispositions and HMRC reporting funds etc......Thanks in advance for any upcoming feedback. :joyous:

Hi Everyone!

Long time reader first time poster!

With this massive run up in the stock market and Trump doing such a great job getting the economy back on track I'm ready to finally jump into investing! Looking forward to advice.

Hello!

Just found this forum and I'm sure there will be a boatload of information on here for me to peruse. Over the next short while, I'll probably be mostly searching for stuff related to completing income tax forms in Ontario. I'm a self employed house painter and I've been doing my own taxes for years. Hopefully correctly! For the first time I'm going to be doing my elderly mothers income taxes. Definitely going to need some help with this.

Anyhoo, thanks for having me.

Hello! Thank you for starting this discussion :)

I'm an engineer who is very passionate about technology. I might have limited knowledge about financial services, but just a thought, I believe that funding employers in different industries could be very helpful for job seekers. I know some non profit organizations which are doing so by offering government funds but I think specifying more funds or supporting such organization would be very helpful!

Journey to Options Guru

Hi All:

My first posting. New to the whole scene. Must get tutorials on navigating through this site.

I am a 69 former HR Exec who wants to fully retire next year. I have read four books on Options and have scoured
James Cordier's The Complete Guide to Selling Options twice. I intend to paper-trade over the next six months and
will probably learn with the Think or Swim platform.

I intend to take mentoring from anyone with options experience and might make this my default community.

Thank in advance for any help in both options and navigating through this site.
