Some of these templates should be merged. One of the purposes of a navbox is to guide the reader to related articles while providing a consistant UI element. As a reader clicks the articles in the navbox the same navbox appears in the linked articles. Template:Securities And Template:Financial markets share a majority of content so they should be easy. 'Category:Finance templates' has a long list of templates which could be merger candidates. Perhaps a horizontal box with columns like Template:Navbox with columns is more suitable for the merged templates. Helena srilowa (talk) 17:18, 13 July 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Declined. 1. No active discussion for over a year, actually, no discussion at all, apart from the proposal itself. 2. Both templates are large as they are, and merging them would result in an unacceptably large template. Debresser (talk) 06:47, 22 November 2011 (UTC)[reply]

US Dollar/US Exchanges[edit]

Is there a particularly good reason why all of these templates have pictures that either relate to the US Dollar of the New York Stock Exchange? Surely the pictures should be more universal given the very nature of Wikipedia? There are many other very important exchanges and currencies in the world that could be used. Perhaps more abstract pictures should be used? A generic trading floor rather than the front of the NYSE building? Or even old paintings of drawings of capitalism from bygone era's? --Aliwalla 13:33, 12 July 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Removing Valuation Models section for now[edit]

Only two links, one of which is unimplemented, the other is basically a stub. Ronnotel 16:31, 5 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]


For Currency markets, there already is a link to Foreign exchange market, which currency market redirects to. Commodity markets are not financial markets. Financial markets are for financial products; commodity markets relate to physical products like silver, pork bellies, corn etc. (Thobius 17:49, 7 October 2005 (UTC))[reply]
