QuantShare New Website Feature: Groups

Updated on 2014-05-21

Today, we just released a new feature that allows you to create public and private groups.

Members of a group will be able to share private items, discuss with other members and recommend trading items.

How to Create a Group

- In QuantShare website, click on "Groups" in the top menu
- Click on "Create a new group"
- Type the group name, description and select the group type (public or private)
- Click on "Create Group"

But why should you create a group?

There are several reasons and here are some:
- You have a website and you want to share trading items only with your readers or subscribers
- You have a team and you want to have a group where you can discuss and share trading items only with members of your team
- You want to create a specialized public group so that other traders can contribute
- You want to exchange trading items privately with other QuantShare members

How to Become Member of a Group

- Go to "Groups" page
- Click on the group link
- Click on "Send request to join this group"

If the group is public then you will be member of the group instantly.
If the group is private then a request will be sent to the admin of the group. Once the admin accepts your request, you will get a notification (Home - Notifications)

Once you become a member of a group, you will be able to download private trading items, display recommended trading items and create/respond to topics in the discussion board.

Important Note:
Please read the description of the group as the admin may put some specific conditions to be met in order to become a member.
Example: QuantShare Private Group
To be part of this group, you need to upload at least 3 trading items. One of these items must be private and associated with the "QuantShare Private" group

How to Share a Trading Item to a Specific Group

- In QuantShare application, select "Tools" then "Sharing Server"
- Select the item you want to upload (must be an item that you have created and not an item that you downloaded from the sharing server)
- Click on "Share selected item"
- Type the item name/title, description then enter the Group ID next to "(Group ID)"

How to find the group ID?:
When visiting a group, check the URL in the top bar of your browser. Example:

The group ID is the number located just after "lid=". In this case, the group ID is 1.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
