Check the various privacy options on your profile (‘Settings’ in the top-right corner, then section ‘Account’/’Profile’).
Visit our popular Trading chat (see top menu) where news and share price developments are discussed and commented in real-time - this is also a place for quite a few irrelevant observations and humour.
Check out the XI trigger list - a chronological list of events that our members believe may turn out to be important stock price catalysts during the next 12 months. You'll find a trigger list on the individual stock (in the group) as well as one for all shares (top menu). New triggers are always appreciated by the community.
Search for and subscribe to relevant groups. If you don’t find a suitable group, create a new one, write an initial comment and others will join you.
Start following other private members to build a network and to be able to communicate with them. Please note that you are automatically a follower of any business members from your country. If you’re not interested in reading updates from one or more business members, you have to ‘unfollow’ or ‘mute’ the member(s) in question (see section ‘Contacts’ below).
Be active. The best way to get other members to share interesting content with you and collaborate is to contribute to the community with your own content and comments.
Help XI grow - ask your friends/contacts to join us and help build content, momentum and activity. Mention us on other sites.
Sometimes you may see comments in different languages, and we recommend using Google Translate or similar services to overcome such communication barriers.
Every member has an individual home page or feed page. At this page you are able to read all relevant comments as well as posting messages yourself
In the status update field you are able to write comments and send them to your followers or to a single member. NB: You have to go to the relevant group page to write group comments.
In your feed at the ‘Home’ page you will be able to see (and sort) all comments from people you follow, groups you follow and direct messages to you. The home page will also show you the latest group activities from groups you follow.
Can anyone join a group on XtraInvestor?
If the group is set up as a public group (standard), anyone can read and write, but you have to join to have the latest group comments to appear on your wall. If it’s a private group, you must request membership and be approved by the group's creator in order to join. You may find a group to join by searching or by looking in the ‘Browse all groups’ section of the ‘Groups’ meny.
What kind of groups exist (can I create?)
You can create any type of group. There are two types of groups; private and public. The public group is open for all members to take part in. To be a member of a private group, one have to request a membership and be approved by the group creator.
The subject for any group is really up to the group creator. When creating the group, it has to be put in one of the specified categories, for instance listed stocks, unlisted stocks, real estate, oil, markets and macro, art, other etc etc.
How do I create a group?
Click on ‘+Create new group’ button in the right navigation bar (below the ‘Settings’ link).
Follow the instructions to set up the group.
What do a group creator have to do?
Nothing if it’s a public group. If the group is created as a private group, the creator has to approve or deny a request for membership. We expect all members to comply with the ‘Code of conduct’. If some do not, it’s every member responsibility to tell us.
How do I join a group?
Click on ‘Groups’ on the top menu bar, browse/locate the group you would like to join, click at the link ‘Join’ (public group) or ‘Request membership’ (private group) at the right side of the group name.
How do I leave a group?
Click on ‘Groups’ on the top menu bar, find the relevant group under the “My groups” section and click on ‘Unsubscribe’ to the right of the group name.
Do I always have to use my real name?
Yes. Always. Trying to use a different name means being banned for life.
How do I go to a group page from my Home page?

How do I approve/deny a membership request?

How do I follow a fellow group member?
Click on the group member’s name, click on “Follow user” below the users name in his profil page. The member may or may not approve your follower request.
What if I see a comment I think is inappropriate?
If you believe the content is inappropriate or constitutes a breach of the ‘Code of conduct’ please click on the ‘Report misconduct’’ text link to the right of the comment in question. Such a report will never be divulged to the member in question.
Is there a way to easily remove everything a spammer has put in a group?
Yes. Please notify us by by clicking on the link ‘Report misconduct’ to the right of the message. We will remove the comments and probably remove the spammer as a XtraInvestor member as well.
Why is my membership request showing pending upon the approval of the group creator?

Your mailbox will function just as a regular mail inside XtraInvestor. You are only allowed to send internal mails to contacts that you follow or that follows you.
What difference is there between direct messages and In-Mails?
Direct messages are send by posting a @Username + message in the status update field. This message will be presented in the receivers feed.
Internal mails are sent/answered/read from the Mailbox section on the top menu bar. You are allowed to send the message to more than one recipient (in contrast to a direct message). Replying to the message means replying to all members involved in this conversation. You are notified by a purple button on the top menu as well as to your private mail when you have got a new internal mail.
By clicking on ‘Contacts’ on the top meny bar you will see the sections ‘I follow’ (the ones you follow) and ‘Follows me’ (the ones that follow you). You may also search for contacts. Your contacts are the ones that you may send direct messages or internal mails to.
How do I follow a member:
Search for the member or go through the ‘User list” to find the member. Click on the ‘Follow user’ link to the right of the members name. The member in question may accept or deny your request.
How do I remove a contact?
Find the contact in question and click ‘Remove connection’ to the right side of the person’s name. This means that you both delete him following you and you following him if you are already mutual followers. If you rather just want to block the contacts status updates to appear in your feed, just click ‘Mute user’ to the right of his comment in your feed. Connections will not be notified that they have been muted or removed from your connections list. Only the member that mutes or breaks the connection can re-initiate.
Can I block someone from following me?
Yes. You may always approve who is going to follow you or remove someone you have already approved. Make sure that you in your ‘Account’ section under ‘Settings’ have not ticked off the box that automatically approve follower requests if you don’t want anyone to follow you automatically.
How do I send a direct message to one of my contacts?
To send a direct message: type @Membername (as shown in the ‘My contacts’ list, for instance @PeterBrown) in the status update field in your home page, press space bar + write your message. You may also send/receive a private message to one or more members through the Mailbox features (see ‘Mailbox’ on the top menu bar).

Below are some things XtraInvestor recommends to protect your privacy:
Only follow people that are actually writing updates and that you think may provide you with valuable information or views. To send/receive direct messages or internal mails you need to be contacts. Following people just because they are following you may encourage spammers.
