Some of the smartest people I know discuss things at C2.
I find it fascinating that even there people are arguing
"You're investing all wrong";
"No, you're the one investing all wrong".
C2 is really intended for talking about computer programming, but
a couple of investment topics have snuck in:
I have played a game called "Futures exchange".
Fun and free. I think it helped me understand options better.

``Linear prediction'' works with stock prices
Theory of universal learning machines
Physicists and economists other inductive scientists make predictions based on observations.
So does everybody in daily life.
Did you know that there is a theoretically optimal way of predicting?
I believe every scientist should know about it.
Alternatively, reduce M to
what you get if you just add up weighted estimated future finance data probabilities
generated by 1000 commercial stock-market prediction software packages.
If only one of them happens to work fine (but you do not know which) you still should get rich.

"Adding Zero to E wave theory. ... The Elliott Wave principle was discovered in the late 1920s by Ralph Nelson Elliott"
makes a good point that stock prices go up and down in a fractal pattern
(vs. other people who try to see it as a "noisy sine wave" or "noisy linear trend").
I'm not sure that the (deterministic) fractal pattern explained here is the best model, though.

At the end of [every] seven years thou shalt make a release.
And this [is] the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth [ought] unto his neighbour shall release [it]; he shall not exact [it] of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD'S release.
Of a foreigner thou mayest exact [it again]: but [that] which is thine with thy brother thine hand shall release;
Save when there shall be no poor among you; for the LORD shall greatly bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee [for] an inheritance to possess it:
Only if thou carefully hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all these commandments which I command thee this day.
For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee.
If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother:
But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, [in that] which he wanteth.
Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest him nought; and he cry unto the LORD against thee, and it be sin unto thee.
Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto.
For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.
