Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

We have a Stack Overflow and a Math Overflow.

Has anyone thought of setting up a Finance Overflow to discuss derivatives and financial instruments used in banks? This would be a good forum!

6 – Earlz Jul 23 '10 at 23:40 is the correct site, and while it's still in beta, it's open. For those curious, it also answers to the name and has absorbed the Q&A that they developed during their stackexchange 1.0 adventure.

said absorption has been .. problematic .. largely due to weak metas (governance, leadership) based on SE 1.0 history of, well, not having any. As it turns out, contrary to my previous beliefs on the matter, meta isn't murder, but in fact sort of fundamentally necessary for any actual community to form.. – Jeff Atwood Mar 4 '11 at 7:46

I know of these two proposals on Area51:

Personal Finance and Money

Quantitative Finance

The second one is most likely along the lines you describe.

Thanks for pointing out my proposal. But, agreed, most likely the second one is what the OP is interested in. – Chris W. Rea Jul 27 '10 at 0:37
@chris Seems he's interested in both, based on his commitments. I've also decided to take the plunge, as I think I've come up with at least one good question. It's definitely a great proposal. Thank you for proposing it. – George Marian Jul 27 '10 at 0:57
Thanks! Appreciated. Glad you like it. – Chris W. Rea Jul 28 '10 at 2:52
both are now launched, too. – Jeff Atwood Mar 4 '11 at 7:46

There are currently some money-based sites already...have a look at the listing on, and scroll down to the "Money" section.

EDIT: the page linked above no longer exists.

As of a few days ago, no longer exists. All URLs redirect to the MSO main page. – Pops Mar 3 '11 at 23:12
@Popular Demand: that site's been shut down, see… – Grant Palin Mar 4 '11 at 1:16
I know, I spent a good chunk of the afternoon tracking down old MSO posts that linked to that site, leaving comments nudging people to update their old answers. – Pops Mar 4 '11 at 4:49
