it will contain a glossary of terms used on this site
that are not common in everyday discussion, and which
may be new to some readers.

site are not familiar to you, please send an email to

get back with you right away with clarification.
The NASD (National Association of Securities Dealers)
provides its own comprehensive Glossary of Investment

Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia that serves
as a glossary for terms with which you may be unfamiliar.
Each page on Wikipedia is created and edited by users
of the site. An example of a page in this encyclopedia
is titled "Private equity" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_equity)
and gives a definition of the term along with related
content sections such as "Private equity firms",
"History", "External links", "Industry
Organizations & Other Resources", "Articles",
and "Videos". A related page titled "Venture
Capital" is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venture_capital.
