I am writing to congratulate you on the Opalesque Futures Intelligence which you published regarding managed futures.� I have been in the industry for some 20 years and this is one of the best pieces I’ve seen.

The idea of the Opalesque Futures Intelligence publication is excellent. A lot of education needed.. simply because of the “black box” perception. We love the strategy here. ..

yes basically what I want is a 4 week pause during which they will get the AMB expired trial notice and can then decide to buy AMB

so please amend as I had explained and set the end dates as I had explained in the emails below.� That means you will set the expiration date 2 months in the future after the 4 week pause, i.e. when coping from ml_a2_interim to ml_a2_trials

what I want is a 4 week pause and then again a 2 months A2 trial

YOU DID NOT INFORM ME AS I HAD REQUESTED WHERE I CAN FIND THE EMAIL TEMPLATE. THEREFORE THE EMAIL TEMPLATE WAS NOT changed/adapted yet.

** where is the email template so that I can change it
** remember that going forward that email will only be sent out when the email is copied from ml_a2_interim to ml_a2_trials

Hello Matthias,

Recently we are changed the cronjob like the following requirement.

"when a trial expires in ml_trials, and that email is NOT in ml_a2 or has an a2 subscription (live, deactived, expired) in op_user, then I want:

1. that email at expiry of ml_trials ALSO to be copied to ml_a2_trials with end date two months into the future
1.1 I also want to send them an alert email "Dear Opalesque user,<p>Your trial to our daily Alternative Market Briefing subscription ends today" (please set up this text in the system, I will edit the text later. Email me name and directory where I can find this template
2. we need to include ml_a2_trials into the a2 mailing procedure for productive mailing, with the a2 pdf attached
3. at the end of the trials of ml_a2_trials, make sure the cronjob copies it to ml_a2 but as expired, so that they will not get the pdf attached any more"

You need to change the same cron job as per your new requirement (which�mentioned now)? Suppose we need to change the cronjob like new requirement then can I set the new iEndTrial as�two months in the future from current date?��Please give me your suggestion.

Regards,

In ml_trials we had the following emails:

mdriscoll@geospherecap.com

trial ends 6.7.

aa@austerlitzcap.com

Ends 7.7.

aa@austerlitzcap.com

ab@paradigm-ny.com

aba@canyonpartners.com

etc.


I want the following routine:

1. ADD these features to the existing cron job that copies ml_trials to ml_mailingliste.
In addition to copying the expired trials to ml_mailingliste, also copy them to a new table ml_a2_interim. Copy also ����� iEndTrial as a field so we know when their trial has ended.
2. in that same copy cronjob, add a routine that moves the records from ml_a2_interim to ml_a2_trials EXACTLY 4 weeks (28 days) AFTER the emails has been copied to ml_a2_interim (so for 4 weeks they were just on the interim list and did NOT get any email from us). When copying to ml_a2_trials, set a new field ����� iEndTrial two months in the future.
3. when copying from ml_a2_interim to ml_a2_trials, I want an email to be sent out to the client where we will inform him that we will start a free A2 trial for him. You can set up this email as an empty template just with "Dear Opalesque users...." and leave the rest blank.

Der Songshan im Funiu-Gebirge ist einer der f�nf taoistischen heiligen Berge Chinas.

Seine Bedeutung verdankt der Berg in der �stlichen Provinz Henan einem Inder. Der M�nch Bodhi Dharma lehrte hier bereits vor 1500 Jahren die Kunst des Kung-Fu als Ausgleich zur Meditation. In der Umgebung des Song Shan befinden sich heute 72 Tempel und Kl�ster, darunter auch das ber�hmte Shaolin-Kloster.

Grizzly-B�ren beim Lachsfang beobachten kann man zum Beispiel auf Touren im Katmai-Nationalpark oder Kodiak-B�ren auf der gegen�berliegenden Kodiak-Insel.

Jedes Jahr kommen daher Besucher aus der ganzen Welt nach Churchill in der kanadischen Provinz Manitoba.

Denn hier ereignet sich ein einzigartiges Schauspiel: Hunderte hungriger Eisb�ren sammeln sich nahe des kleinen St�dtchens und warten darauf, dass die Hudson Bay zufriert. Dann ziehen sie �ber das Eis und gehen auf Jagd nach Robben.

� I'm now all set with my tracking -- a service, by the way, that I really think adds value to your already super service.

Media baron Steve Forbes is anticipating an escalation in the competition from Rupert Murdoch after the acquisition of Dow Jones and opined on a quick trip to London that the News Corp chairman wasn't "looking at a spreadsheet" when deciding to "pay twice what anybody else would".

An aggressive online strategy for the Wall Street Journal was well overdue, he reckoned, but the 60-year-old still saw room for his own group - which makes more online than from print products - to expand into niches, such as the newly launched ForbesLife Executive Woman. The magazine's first issue had a cover story on the diverse lives of three Goldman Sachs partners - treasurer Liz Beshel , hedge fund client manager Edith Cooper and Japan strategist Kathy Matsui

Surprise: Most hedge funds fare well in July
Comment | Forward to a friend

What gives? It's a tale of two fund types right now. FINalternatives reports the Greenwich Global Hedge Fund Index gained 0.13 percent in July. That actually beat the Standard and Poor's 500, which fell. So far this year, the Greenwich index is up nearly 8 percent. Of course, hedge funds thrive on volatility, so it may be that the non-credit-oriented hedge funds have fared well, despite some of the high-profile blow-ups and some creaking performance by some really big names, like Renaissance. Apparently, funds with high credit-risk exposure makeup only a small portion of the hedge fund universe. Another expansion, however, is that the losses of many funds have been masked because certain securities have yet to be marked to market. So there's no real reason to breathe easier. Not yet anyway.�

most positive aspect of the publication is that it addresses the alternative alternative space.� As we all know, the vast majority of assets in the hedge fund space are dedicated to long short equity.� For the industry to be viable long term, more thoughtful and creative ways of investing need to be uncovered.� Most people will eventually recognize that the value added in the hedge fund space is not as much about raw returns as it is about lack of correlation with other assets classes and the benefits of assisting in creating a truly diversified portfolio.

Specifically, I appreciate the interview format of A-squared.� It’s always interesting to learn about a strategy directly from the head portfolio manager, and a picture tells a thousand words!

so�many users were cheating (even whole departments/Wall Street firms) and not setting up corporate subscriptions (although we offer up to 50% discount, starting with 20% off for two users (that's 20% for both) that we had to sharpen our diagnostic tools...

We will also improve the unsubscribe links so it will show from which publications it has unsubscribed, with an added option "remove from all publications". The issue is that users have removed themselves from one list but they may be still on a list for the other mailings.

Para-Aminobenzoic Acid

(PABA) as this vitamin is commonly known is one of the lesser known members of the B complex family, has been shown to be an anti-grey hair vitamin. In tests in black animals that were feed with a diet deficient of PABA, they developed grey hair, when the animals were reintroduced to the vitamin, normal hair colour was restored

Research on humans with grey hair being given 200mg of PABA after each meal produced results that showed that a study of the hair afterwards resulted in a seventy per cent result of the hair returning to its original colour. Other research claims that PABA combined with folic acid also helps restore hair to its original colour.

Deficiency of PABA, Biotin, Folic Acid and Pantothenic Acid appears to affect hair colour. Hair colour can normally be restored with a diet rich in the B vitamins and in the few cases where colour is not restored the hair will improve in quality and strength of growth.

PABA and the B vitamins are found in foods such as liver, kidney, whole grain and yeast. The richest source being liver.

Zinc has also been shown to stop hair turning grey. One doctor taking zinc for a year reversed the grey hairs which returned to their original colour.

The following drink contains Protein, Choline, Inositol, Pantothenic Acid, Biotin, Vitamin E and Zinc: The seven ingredients' nutritionists most often recommend for growing healthy hair.

8 Fl oz Plain Yoghurt
8 Fl oz Orange Juice
3 Tablespoons Wheat Germ
3 Tablespoons Brewers Yeast
1 Tablespoon Lecithin Crystals
1 Teaspoon Vitamin C Crystals
1 Raw Egg Yolk
1 Tablespoon Unflavored Gelatine Powder
Honey to Taste (optional)

Combine all the ingredients and blend until smooth. If a blender is not available put all the ingredients into a jar with a lid and shake vigorously.

This tonic makes a quick and nutritious breakfast and will work wonders for your hair.

This cocktail should help just about everyone, and you will certainly notice a difference to your hair once you try it.

Another recommended regime for hair loss which has proved to be very effective is a supplement of the Amino Acids, Zinc and Vitamin C. This supplement is particularly good for people who go on crash diets and find a problem with hair loss, or problems which are less obvious such as women who are losing hair as a result of birth control pills and subsequent vitamin and mineral deficiencies.

Hair loss supplement

A daily vitamin and mineral supplement

B Complex
Pantothenic Acid
Folic Acid
P.A.B.A.
Vitamin A
Zinc

A daily supplement of the above will help produce healthy hair and helps restore grey hair to its original colour.

0ne multi- vitamin formula 1000mg and 500mg magnesium taken daily can have a great effect on hair growth - There is no guarantee but many people have reported a definite reduction of hair loss with this regime.

Another combination that has produced excellent results with some people is a daily supplement of choline and inositol, 1000mg of each daily.

The Amino Acid L Tyrosine is also recommended for helping hair regain its natural colour.

While there are a number of supplements which can be beneficial, it is important for the diet to improve and take precedence over supplements alone. That said there are enormous benefits to be derived from using vitamins, many food products today have been treated with chemicals during the growing process.

When anyone is embarking on a course of vitamins or minerals they should be aware that results will not happen overnight. Vitamins are not some magic potion that is suddenly going to cure hair loss overnight. They may not do anything for some people but for others they will achieve excellent results with noticeable differences in hair growth and in the slowing down of hair loss.

Results will usually take from about three to four months before the body actually reacts to the effects brought about by the vitamins.

Back-up software and services are among the essential elements of any PC security plan and there is a growing number of free or very low-cost options for PC users. One of my favourites is Mozy (www.mozy.com), a web-based service that provides up to 2Gb of free storage with more available cheaply. In addition, password managers such as AI RoboForm make password generation and management straightforward.

For personal productivity, OpenOffice, an open-source package developed by the OpenOffice.org project, includes a solid MS Office-compatible word processor and spreadsheet as well as a presentation package and database (www.openoffice.org). OpenOffice is fairly easy to install and use and reliably opens and saves documents in MS Office format, but occasionally some of the advanced formatting features in Word get mangled

Skype has also become a rival to online chat/conferencing but lacks the sophistication of dedicated video conferencing tools including my favourite, Sightspeed (www.sightspeed.com). With a reasonable webcam, SightSpeed supports full-motion 30 frame per second video calls, VoIP voice calls, chat and conference calling over a broadband connection that rivals commercial packages.

Fortis launches 'MySpace' for entrepreneurs

Belgian financial services group Fortis has launched a MySpace-style social network for European entrepreneurs. The Join2Grow platform is being positioned as an online destination where entrepreneurs can meet, communicate freely with fellow business people and exchange useful information. The site is pitched at all categories of business managers, from start-ups to established concerns.

The profile of each active Web site member shows the business sector they come from, their hobbies and their business objectives. The site also features a 'magazine' section with audio and video podcasts, where European business owners talk about their professional experience and the challenges they have faced.

In a statement, Fortis says it is "strongly backing this new tool, which will give European business people the opportunity to be part of a strong, continent-wide community of modern and active entrepreneurs who want to take their business life to another level".

we have to get one thing straight off.

[07:44:37] Sona Blessing : a lot of the best are not new, closed... and what is new bears a n additional risk premium.. but if we can justify that risk premium... and outline that one exists... it is fine.

[07:45:11] Sona Blessing : to use a cliche... there is no free lunch ... i mean it is our job to point out new ideas and the risks...

[07:45:29] Sona Blessing : it is mean to be a starting point for an investor...

How to choose a financial planner or adviser

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- If you're looking to hire a financial planner or adviser, you're making a decision that likely will affect your entire life. And the vast array of choices can make the decision mind-boggling.

We have the following options for SUBSCRIPTIONS (NOT: RENEWALS):

1. completely new user (no AMB/TRB/A2 account) - then we need to have him register and define logon etc.

2. We have a logon information because the user is registered as AMB/TRB/A2 user - and now he wants to add another subscription - then we can do the same solution we have now if a TRB user subscribes to AMB

HYPERLINK "http://lists.fiercemarkets.com/c.html?rtr=on&s=69l,sjya,8md,ksfg,d8ux,4q3u,8072" 5. New indie research shop born

Since most Street firms agreed, as part of the much-reported global settlement, to separate research from banking, a cottage industry of independent research has formed. Recent estimates say 300 to 400 indie researchers are vying for buy-side business. Some of the product has been iffy and people have long been predicting consolidation, but there is room for innovation. Lawrence Margolis, who founded Gotham Research in 2001, is pushing what he hopes could serve as a viable model. His new website (www.streetbrains.com) will serve as a means through which the buy-side will be able to access relevant research. It's unclear what the revenue model is in detail. But most likely, the firm is counting on the willingness of more funds to pay non-soft dollar fees for research.

Dear Yahoo-Email user,<p>

We are emailing you on behalf of Opalesque, as Opalesque is unable to email Yahoo email users:<p>

We already informed you on September 18th that Yahoo does not deliver all emails to Opalesque subscribers signed on with an Yahoo email address.<p>

Yahoo has been surprisingly unresponsive regarding this issue. Of course, they are only accessible by email; and when we email them an automated email comes back to us with the information that "someone " from Yahoo Support would come back to us within 48 hours. Which is not true, as there has been no satisfying response so far.<p>

For over 4.5 years Opalesque is delivering news and updates to our subscribers, all other mass email handlers (gmail, hotmail etc.) deliver our emails promptly.<p>

If you own a second email apart from your Yahoo email that you could use to receive our communication, we strongly suggest you email us back that email address, and we will exchange the email address to ensure delivery.<p>

If you are not interested in our email, please email us back with the header "remove".<p>

As usual, Opalesque subscribers can access the Alternative Market Briefing directly in our archive, even if their email handler may have filtered out our email - which we send out since 4.5 years - for any reasons only they may know: <a href=http://www.opalesque.com/main.php?act=archive target=_blank>www.opalesque.com/main.php?act=archive</a><p>Yesterday's Technical Research Briefing can be downloaded <a href=http://www.opalesque.com/files/TRB17Sep2007 target=_blank>here.</a>

Our FAQ gives more background on <a href=http://www.opalesque.com/op_2_9.html#23 target=_blank>spam filter issues</a>, but again, for Yahoo users I do not see any quick solution. If you have another email address you can use, please feel free to email us your old and new email so that we can change it.<p>

ǂ

I would like to congratulate you for your successful publications.
Your primum news provide me on daily basis a right, accurate and efficient information in the Hedge Fund and Alternative Investments sector.
Every morning I'm excited to read my Opalesque email.
Congratulation for your Job again !

<b>Uncorrelated Returns: New highlights from this week's A SQUARE</b><p>

Opalesque's independent, unique investment research platform <b>A SQUARE (<u>A</u>lternative <u>A</u>lternatives)</b>, focusing on investment opportunities outside the traditional hedge fund strategies, has some interesting finds this week.<p>

In the current <b>issue 74</b> of A SQUARE, our research director Sona Blessing is presenting and analyzing:

<ul><li><b>A special situation fund - focuses on emerging markets:</b> The market for emerging market credits continues to be inefficient

<li><b>Expertise from a “real estate/residential fund” manager:</b> ” We’re beginning to see gross yields on London residential properties in decent locations approaching 8-10%. They can be even higher for multi-lets properties.”

<li><b>A rare global coins company:</b> Over 100 years experience in the numismatic field In many cases they may own one of only a few known rare coin type/quality known to be in existence

<li><b>Niche investing in wine – Champagne:</b> It is worth bearing in mind that when the general wine market saw a slight softening of price in the latter half of last year - Champagne prices accelerated.</ul>

<p>

As with all A SQUARE portraits, you will find the following analysis for each fund:

<ul><li>SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats)

<li>Risk Assessment

<li>Performance Parameters

<li>Outlook

<li>Legal set up and investment information</ul>

<b>Opalesque Technical Research correctly identified S&P 500key downside reversal already on October 13th</b><br>

Opalesque editor Greg Troccoli (Opalesque Technical Research Briefing) points out that he identified the absolute top in Stocks back on October 13, by way of the Key Downside Reversal. In doing so, he took a negative stance well before any other Analysts, Journalists or Economists opined on this situation.<p>

Additionally, he explained that in his Technical Research Briefings he had laid forth specific parameters regarding the shift from a possible bullish equity environment, to that of an extended bear market: &quot;These are trying times in the financial sector, but I believe we prepared our readers well in advance of the recent carnage which is still playing out.&quot;<p>

Opalesque noted very early that the correlation of the typical hedge fund strategies amongst themselves and with other markets and asset classes has increased. Therefore Opalesque developed a product that helps investors, managers and other professionals to “look ahead” and achieve a better understanding of the markets. <a href=http://www.opalesque.com/index6.html target=_blank>See here for more information on this free service from Opalesque, published since April 2006.</a><p>

Dear Opalesque reader,<p>
As I had mentioned a few days back (I let the "secret" out...), Opalesque will be launching a completely re-designed website very shortly.

Sona Blessing, our director of research for our <b>A SQUARE </b>(<u>A</u>lternative <u>A</u>lternatives), the industry's <b>only</b> independent investment research platform

on Alternative Alternatives, has covered a very interesting environmentally focused FoF. The portfolio is allocated to various environment linked sectors - including, but not restricted to renewable energy, clean technology, carbon finance, water, timber and agriculture.<p>

According to Sona's analysis, available in our latest <a href=http://www.opalesque.com/main.php?act=archiveA2 target=_blank>A SQUARE</a>, the fund displays <b>superior ability to identify funds and secure capacity.</b> The fund manager will also use a portfolio overlay to hedge excessive directional exposure. The FoF has a strict asset verification and fraud protection process in place. <p>

Dear …….. ,

I am Nisha Mittal, working with Opalesque Ltd., as Project Manager.

Opalesque is the largest paid online hedge fund newsletter provider with a customer base of more than 40,000 subscribers. We have been publishing premier web publications for 5 years. Each week, we email out 360,000 emails to our global readership with our three publications.

Our readers are investors (50%, including Fund of Funds), Single and Multi Strategy Hedge Funds (25%) and a diverse range of service providers up to regulators and academics.

With 360,000 weekly readers, Opalesque is already the largest online publisher on alternative investments. By March, Opalesque will have launched a completely redesigned website. Media specialists expect this site to be the #1 website (by hits and duration on site) in a very short time.

The new site will include an Event Calendar, giving conference firms an ideal opportunity to list their events. As a conference organizer, your firm has two options how to list your events.

1. Full Listing

In a Full Listing, your event will be added to the conference calendar

Opalesque is coming up with an Online Event Listing section, which will showcase exclusive Events on Hedge Funds. We provide an opportunity for the corporate house to promote their upcoming events through Opalesque publications and website.

The Events will be advertised on Opalesque exclusive daily publication, i.e. Alternative Market Briefing, which has the largest customer base and on the website, as a combined offer. The other option is to advertise only on the Opalesque website.

Our diversified services is an added advantage which brings in more Traffic to our website, and the deeper penetration through our daily publication emails will add onto the publicity of the Events.

The purpose of this email is to present myself and Event listing section to you and start a dialogue. At this point, if you are interested to pursue this, please get back to me for further details.

Editorial: U.S. Carbon Trading - near the Breakthrough?

Did you know:<p>

<ul><li>Since 1751, we've spewed about 315 billion tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere - about half of that in the last 40 years. The IPPC estimates that, if left unchecked, global greenhouse gas emissions could rise another 25-90% over year 2000 levels by 2030...

<li>. Last month, CFI (carbon financial instrument) prices on CCX more than doubled, swelling from below $2/CFI in November to about $5.50/CFI in mid-March. Volumes have skyrocketed too, with January and February setting trading records. Almost 2.5 million people traded on Feb. 11 alone - more than CCX's average monthly trading volume for the entirety of 2007.<p>

CFA Institute / EDHEC Risk and Asset Management Research Centre Seminar

Following an inaugural seminar which attracted practitioners from 20 countries and five continents, CFA Institute and EDHEC have extended their partnership to organise a biannual event which presents the latest research advances in asset allocation and clarifies the distinction between true innovation and mere marketing claims in emerging industry trends. The programme is intended for investment management professionals who advise on or participate in the design and implementation of asset allocation policies and portfolio models and for sell-side practitioners who develop new asset management and ALM solutions for investors. The next session of the seminar will take place 17-19 November in London. More in the Service section below.

Dear Opalesque reader,<p>

I know it is late on Friday (10:30 pm here), but I came across two documents that I thought important enough to shoot out this Blizz. It will make a good read.<p>

<b>Harry Markopolos' Submission to the SEC: "The World's Largest Hedge Fund (Madoff Investment Securities LLC) is a Fraud" from November 7th 2005</b><p>

<b>"Opening Remarks:</b><br>

I am the original source for the information presented herin having first presented my rationale, both verbally and in writing, to the SEC's Boston office in May, 1999 before any public information doubting Madoff Investment Securities, LLC appeared in the press....I used the Mosaic Theory to assembly my set of observations. My observations where collected first-had by listening to fund of found investors talk about their investments in a hedge fund run by Madoff Investment Securities, LLC, a SEC registered firm. I have spoken to the heads of various Wall Street equity derivative trading desks and every single one of the senior managers I spoke with told me that Bernie Madoff was a fraud....<p>

I am a derivatives expert and have traded or assisted in the trading of several billion $US in options strategies for hedge funds and institutional clients. I have experience in managing split-strike conversion products both using index options and using individual stock options, both with and without index puts. Very few people in the world have the mathematical background needed to manage these types of products but I am one of them.<p>

I have outlined a detailed set (Opalesque Note: 29) of Red Flags that make me very suspicious that Bernie Madoff's returns aren't real....."<p>

<b>Peak Partners: Where were the counter-parties?</b><p>

Peak Partners, a Geneva-based fund of funds, issued a press release "Why we did not invest with Madoff" with more background:<p>

"One of our Partners has been, during his career, a privileged observer of one of those Madoff Feeders. He had the opportunity to analyze in detail Madoff's investment strategy based on the trade confirmations that were sent by post. Contrary to market practice, none of those trade confirmations had a time stamp on it. And there was no way to check the trading account online. This was probably one of the easiest "red flags" to spot....<p>

From the trade confirmations, our Partner was able to re-engineer the strategy and understand how the performance was generated, which <i>ex post</i> seemed perfectly plausible. Madoff appeared to be really generating returns by executing its "split-strike conversion" strategy. <p>

...Our Partner eventually found out that most of the performance came from the options overlay. Given the volatility of the options, the timing of the trades was crucial to produce good performance. When checking the price range of S&P 100 options listed on the CBOE, options traded by Madoff were almost always executed at very good prices (close to the low of the day when purchasing options and close to the high of the day when selling options). Those systematically good prices seemed highly suspicious, and even more given the following....<a href=http://www.peakpartners.com/files/20081219FLR_Madoff_En.pdf target=_blank>Access the full document here.</a>.<p>

<b>Starting a Discussion / Networking Group: Alternative Alternatives - Uncorrelated Returns</b><p>

Dear Opalesque Reader,<p>

Happy New Year!<p>

With 2008 behind us, but the crises still ongoing, the search for uncorrelated returns (or <i>any</i> return...) has become harder than ever. For those who are interested, I have started a (free) discussion / networking Group on LinkedIn dedicated to Alternative Alternatives - Uncorrelated Returns (<b><a href=http://www.linkedin.com/e/gis/1642997 target=_blank>www.linkedin.com/e/gis/1642997</b></a>). <p>

At Opalesque, we expect wonderful research coming up shortly and look forward to share this with you. What was REALLY uncorrelated in 2008? <p>

For example, check out the alarming article on <b>ART investing</b> I have posted on the LinkedIn group site, which you can access after having joined the group. <p>

I am excited to share this new group with you and invite you to join. Specifically, we aim to connect practitioners (investors), researchers and investment managers who are active in this field. <p>

Once again, welcome to this group - looking forward to connect with you at: <a href=http://www.linkedin.com/e/gis/1642997 target=_blank><b>www.linkedin.com/e/gis/1642997</a></b>.

Subscribe�to Alpha magazine in�January 2009�and you'll�pay�just $299!

<b>NOT for recruiters....</b><p>

You may remember that about two weeks ago we offered those Opalesque readers who are professional traders or asset managers and trade the U.S. markets, a free trial access to

the realtime Active Trader Chat. This unique forum is the longest running trading community of market professionals, traders and hedge funds focusing on the U.S. markets. <p>

As it turns out, we have some seats available again after we took some action after having realized that some people tried to access this elusive, elite group without being themselves actually traders or asset managers.<p>

If you are eligible and interested, please register here for a free one month trial: <a href=www.opalesque.com/index.php?act=chat target=_blank>www.opalesque.com/index.php?act=chat</a>. Trials will be allotted on a first-come, first served basis.<p>

<b>Launched in 2001, over half of its members have been in the forum for over 5 years</b><p>

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. <p>

<b>Know it first </b><p>

"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," says David C Nelson, CEO of DC Nelson Asset Mgmt. LLC.<p>

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”. <p>

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. <p>

<b>"It consistently makes me money"</b><p>

"I pay the forum the highest compliment - it consistently makes me money," says Christopher Hurd from Hill Financial Group in Rowayton, CT. Robert B. Ladd, Managing Partner, Laddcap Value Advisors LLC adds: "Particularly in these times of enormous volatility, a professional resource like the Active Trader Forum pays for itself many times over."<p>

<b>Real names only</b><p>

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. <p>

Eligible persons can register here: <a href=www.opalesque.com/index.php?act=chat target=_blank>www.opalesque.com/index.php?act=chat</a>.

The Alternatives route was tough going in 2008 - Discussion: What worked for you?

|

From the WSJ: As the market crashed last year, investors learned a hard lesson: Efforts to cushion losses don't always work.<p>

Over the past few years, investors and financial advisers have been pouring more and more money into commodities, real estate and other vehicles that were once niches for the well-to-do. The idea? These "alternative" investments were supposed to diversify their portfolios and cushion the shock when stocks and bonds took a dive.<p>

That's the theory, anyway. But last year, commodities, real estate and other alternatives fell along with the stock and bond markets. For instance, mutual funds that invest in real estate and commodities were down on average 40% to 50% in 2008,<p>

Judith Shine, of Shine Investment Advisory Services Inc. in Lone Tree, Colo., allocated about 20% of her typical client's portfolio to alternatives. But now, she laments, "we wish we had gone into three-year Treasurys as an alternative investment." U.S. debt was one of the few assets that rose in value in 2008. Still, Ms. Shine is keeping a 15% allocation in alternative investments...<p>

For an idea of just how popular alternatives have become, consider this: Nearly a quarter of the 600 mutual funds, exchange-traded funds and exchange-traded notes launched last year were real estate, commodity and hedge-fund-like funds. Full article: <a href=http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123110886276352099.html?mod=googlenews_wsj target=_blank>Source</a><p>

<b>Opalesque Note: </b>This reminds me on the recent discussion about "absolute returns" in an Opalesque Forum (<a href=http://www.opalesque.com/48553/Investors_Hedge_fund_investors_with.html target=_blank>Source</a>,where Robert Rosenbaum pointed out that alternatives were sold with the promise of absolute returns, "but never in each and every year".<p>

At Opalesque, we are curious to hear what worked for you in 2008? What will work this year?<p>

As of today, the Barclay CTA Index is up 13.46% for 2008 and the Barclay Equity Short Bias Index 45.18% respectively. Please feel free to email us or better even use the "Add Comment" function at the bottom of this article.
