    Hang in there Cy, don't get too discouraged. Eventually we should get more new members and discussions here, but probably would take a little more time since this forum is still relatively new. Pretty sure member like @Timbo will be more active too once he has a little more free time ;) A relatively boring market might not help too, it probably is easier to make money by just going long the indexes now than finding something to trade

    i'm not really sure how good of a stock screener this is, probably nowhere near as good as finviz, but i just added one to the forums here courtesy of tradingview.

    you can find the link at the top of the navigation bar by clicking on "screener".

    let me know what you guys think.

    thx for confirming @stock1234! admittedly i wasn't sure if that was getting delivered to you guys or what ... been sending those out the past couple of weekends but did not hear back from anyone, so i was just assuming that you guys weren't getting them ... good to know that wasn't the case! thx again for letting me know i appreciate it!

    cross-posting this from the testing thread in case anyone missed it earlier today ... i would be ever so grateful if someone could let me know how this all works for you guys! many thx in advance. :)

    as you guys know i'm a pretty huge fan of finviz, but i just really hate having to link stuff here which forces people to exit the site in order to access the pages there. so, what i've essentially done here is eliminate that "open page to new browser" action. now you guys can easily access all of the cool features and content from finviz w/o having to leave this site!

    for instance, if you simply click on one of those 5 links that i've added to the navigation bar on the top (the red arrows in the screenshot below) it will bring you each of those pages from finviz respectively while still being connected to TSMF! it's simply using the "iframe" function to achieve this which seems to work really well.

    go ahead and give it a try and let me know what y'alls think!

    i wasn't really a big fan of tradingview's stock screener widget so i needed to can that, and i really wanted to integrate finviz into this site. finviz doesn't have website widgets so i thought why not just use the iframe function to integrate the pages into TSMF. seems to have done the trick pretty well. :D

    the difference between having the link to finviz and the iframe function is this - with a link you click on it and it takes you out of this site i didn't like that.

    now with the iframe function, you can view the finviz pages without having to leave TSMF! it's like viewing finviz within TSMF. :p

    anyway, if you can get a chance i'll be interested to know how it works for you. hopefully there are no glitches, but if you find any let me know. thx again! ;)
