What we're about

Mission Statement
We are Tacoma area investors and traders. Participants in our Meetup group aren’t simply members; we are all partners pursuing successful trading based on sound rules and guidelines of CAN SLIM methodology. Participation is our cornerstone because a group is only as good as the effort its members put forth. Regardless of experience, beginner or guru, we welcome individuals who are interested in learning more about “How to Make Money in Stocks” and willing to help us make this group a valuable, dynamic resource for our members! Join Us!

Meeting Focus:
Our focus is to educate and motivate. Our main goal is to customize our meetings to cover what participating members find most helpful and profitable! Our primary objective is to teach you how to apply CANSLIM trading techniques, conduct IBD research, identify leading stocks, know ‘in real-time ’ when to buy, sell, or hold these stocks, build a watch list and manage portfolio risk. We enthusiastically encourage participation, feedback, and volunteering. And we aspire to promote & continually improve our group’s awesome tools & resources.

Website Focus:
We continue to develop our website and its potential! Currently, we are focusing on three key components. Our chief focus is to encourage interaction & communication between members. Our message board is a tremendous opportunity to pool and share the knowledge, experience & strengths of all our members! We have up to 20 discussion themes covering such topics as: stocks near buy points, buying, selling, finding leaders, past winners, technical analysis, options, and market health. Second, we are steadily expanding our website into a fantastic educational resource where instructive files can be downloaded. Soon we will start building our webinar archives. Last but not least, we promote feedback, input, participation and involvement so we can continue to grow & improve!
