and there was just news that Tesla won't be included in the S&P 500, which was what drove a lot of the buying action, things are not looking for Tesla lol

I've been pretty consistently just dca bi-weekly into the usual suspects. I almost held off the latest period (right before the recent dip), but decided not to pretend I could time the market. Ah well \_(ツ)_/

this week will probably be red but not by much, i can see tech still pulling back for another 2 weeks like it did in early june.. if i see banks and oil pull back along with tech though while the dollar ALSO falls, we have a different story altogether

I thought we were already in the 5 year long depression back in March.

Here's my portfolio. Wish I sold my Vanilla stock when it was 100$ a pop but I missed the window, hoping for a rebound that never occurred. My nut stock has been hovering around 60 since forever, just waiting for a little spike before selling. Butter stocks have been rock bottom since forever.





Oh wait we're not talking about Cookie Clicker...

@mi40 do you have any recommendations for resources for learning about options? I know the absolute basics but I'm not fucking with them until I really know what I'm doing. I have no problem studying for months if needed

investopedia has great articles, and while you're at it, you should read about futures as well. and all the financial instruments & derivatives available to people.

everything is interconnected so reading and learning is important yeah. you REALLY start learning with a small amount of money at play as well since you start reading the news and other macroeconomic signs as well

https://www.investopedia.com/options...torial-4583012
https://www.investopedia.com/terms/f...l%20instrument.
https://www.investopedia.com/terms/v...nt%20decisions.

and so on. good luck my man

basically options are derivatives. you're leveraging and playing the financial instrument that was originally created for insurance/hedging purposes (calls/puts), learn about the greeks, what they meant, how they're generated
and how volatility works (put/call ratio, VIX index, VIX futures, etc) & how they affect options pricing

learn about market events like earnings, ex-dividend dates, sector rotations, the different indexes, which stocks comprise which index.. just really start reading into everything and it starts to click together.

anyways, i went long on sept 15 and got stopped out by another 2 weeks of red but the market's been on another rebound and i've been riding crude oil & financials back up (GS/JPM and /CL)

donald's tweet a few days ago really shook the markets but it looks like the market is pricing in a delayed stimulus already and isnt reacting as hard anymore.

:l
really do the studying and as long as you have strict discipline & keep up with world events and macroeconomic trends you should be able to make money over time

8% a year as an average investor is cool but honestly, might as well try while we're young - to try and make it big

just started buying stocks directly with a bit of fun money for high risk investments. Only made a bit off unity stocks when they came out, but the hype seems to have died down quickly
