hotcopper forums


Website: http://hotcopper.com.au/?

You search for  hotcopper on Google.com.au and you will get all other company or asx codes, that’s because hotcopper is one of the most popular Australian website forums for Australian stock market news and banter. Hotcopper is our tech  sector pick.

As websites need  minimum capital  to run and  maintain  and with bigger membership  these can easily make huge amounts of money  this is my favourite pick. Saying that   it is also easy to mismanage funds in tech sector if the the  funds are not applied  right, so there is always that risk 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

HotCopper is an Australian stock market online chat forum that allows its users to discuss financial topics. As of 2015, HotCopper was in the top 170 websites in Australia and was the 5th most popular Financial Services site in Australia as reported by Alexa
