I've noticed that we have a new subforum under lending called securities. I do like the idea of having it there, but it seems to have the wrong things in it.

In a securities subforum of lending, I'd expect to find primarily debt-based securities (bonds, CDOs, CDSes) and requests to borrow or offers to lend other types of securities.

It seems to be the dumping ground of most topics with [GLBSE] in their subject, which doesn't feel right, considering that many of them (shares/perpetuities) are not inherently debt-based.

Was the forum intended to be one level up from lending?

i think securities, should be directly under marketplace.  I mean, you buy / sell / trade securities..  Marketplace makes the most sense.

I am more interested in it than the lending section, so it's annoying to need the extra clicks.

Also +1, because I happen to block the Lending section, which then filters out the "securities" section that I still want access to.

Was the forum intended to be one level up from lending?

The threads that are there are intended for that forum, the original request was for a GBLSE subforum which is too narrow in focus, wanted something more encompassing. If the name isn't adequate then what would you suggest?

Based on the definition I found it seems to fit. I am no finance expert though.

A security is generally a fungible, negotiable financial instrument representing financial value.[1] Securities are broadly categorized into:

    debt securities (such as banknotes, bonds and debentures),
    equity securities, e.g., common stocks; and,
    derivative contracts, such as forwards, futures, options and swaps.

Here is the other thread that prompted it.

Yeah, except the subforum seems to have ended up buried under the lending forum, rather than under marketplace, and I don't think it belongs there, unless you restrict it to only those securities that are debt-related, as I said.

Oh I see what you're saying. Lending securities versus just securities, didn't think about it that way.

Also with my GLBSE "RSM" item listed in that sub-forum has nothing to do with lending really as investors are buying outright a share in the company and all hardware that comes with it.  Also people won't find that forum unless they go looking for lending and my company is a security yes but it's not a bond or anything to do with lending.
