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 Q&A site!

Personal Finance & Money is the correct site.. For those curious, it also answers to the name http://basicallymoney.com and has absorbed the Q&A that they developed during their Stack Exchange 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.. Mar 4, 2011 at 7:46

I know of these two proposals on Area 51:

Personal Finance and Money

Quantitative Finance

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

    both are now launched, too. Mar 4, 2011 at 7:46

There are currently some money-based sites already...have a look at the listing on https://web.archive.org/web/20100413233431/https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/4/list-of-stackexchange-sites, and scroll down to the "Money" section.

The original question was deleted as it was nowadays referred to as "Stack Exchange 1.0". The official current site list URL is https://stackexchange.com/sites, but it doesn't include a Money category.
