Welcome to the PowerForum, an open forum for PowerOptions subscribers. Here you will be able
to discuss the tools and details of complex strategies
with other subscribers. The PowerForum will also house a current listing of site updates
and allow subscribers to make suggestions for site improvement.
Here are some general tips for using the PowerForum...
To begin, you will need to establish a Nick Name. This will be the name that is shown to other users
when you post. If
you have not already done so, simply click the PowerForum link and you will be prompted to enter
a Nick Name. You can use your PowerOptions UserID, a standard Nick Name, or the name of your dog.
Vulgar and distasteful Nick Names will not be accepted.
Once you have created a Nick Name you will be linked directly to the PowerForum. You can change
your Nick Name, add a signature, and vary the number of posts viewed per page by using the Preferences
link. The Preferences link is located above the Category section on the right side of all forum pages.
The general rules for posting also apply to your signature. No derogatory, vulgar, or sexually explicit
content will be permitted. You do not need a signature to read or post on the PowerForum.
To view a post simply click the name of the category that you wish to read. Each Category will have
of descriptive Topics or Threads. Select and click the Topic that interests you.
At the top of the PowerForum next to the Preferences link there is also a link to the Forum Map.
You can go directly to Topics of interest using the Forum Map as well.
At the bottom of the PowerForum there is also the "Jump to a Topic" drop-down menu. You can use
this menu to quickly link to any Topic. This is handy if you are involved in the current
discussion and you wish to quickly view the newest posts.
Also located at the bottom of the PowerForum is the Search function. The search function allows you
to search for keywords in all posts such as 'Calendar Spread', 'Volatility,' or 'Search Parameters'.
This will help you locate and sort through the forum and find only those Topics that meet your keyword search.
