Trading and Investing Anonymous 01/19/2020 (Sun) 18:17:44 Id:107aac No. 32
So anybody watch the markets, or do a bit of trading or investing? If so are there any full time investors? Are you still bullish on the stock market? What about Bitcoin, will there be a big run up this year? What about gold?
>>32 Nothing too specific. Convinced my family the invest in US markets, and they're already making more money in the few weeks they've had it there than the last two years they had it in our own country. By the end of the year if things keep going they way there are, we'll see a 50% gain on the money. >Bitcoin. I honestly think it's a meme. But you shouldn't get financial advise from a pervert on an image board.
Bitcoin got cucked by illuminati shitheads who'll never allow the 1MB tx limit to be raised, and have no actually viable alternative scalability solutions. It used to be cool digital cash for the internet, great for trading csgo & tf2 shit to avoid the threat of paypal chargebacks; now it's some weird collectible that's awaiting inevitable beanie baby status. And ethereum is even worse at self-cucking with them doing blockchain mulligans every time a shitty DAO programmer fucks up security. I used to love crypto but it all sucks now; it's all politics and shills.
Not really related but I figure people who know stocks might be able to help me out. I am 22 and just inherited 30 shares in Disney stock. What should I do with it?
Thanks for the replies. I see a correction ahead before the NASDAQ punches through 10K. If Trump gets a second term, that will be the final rally into some blow off top like in 1999. For now, this like the rerun of the roaring 1920s. They are just using this identity politics and sexism so we fight against each other whilst they hoover up the assets and turn it back over to us punters in the final rally. Apple went from 200 to over 300 in 6 months.
Also if anyone watches the dow to gold ratio, we are above the same levels as 1929. But some ways to go until we reach 1999. I know smart people visit this forum - there must be some quants or fund managers that like the ol SSBBW too! Evolution and population normal distribution orders it! Anyway here's a rare copy of a PTJ documentary - watch it before they take it down again https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-fJjsm5wkA
>>74 >>72 I want to learn more. So exactly what is a correction? My best guess is, when something gets inflated too high to quickly the market reacts by taking it down a few pegs. How do you protect against a possible correction? My biggest regret is not moving all my money into American Markets before November 2016.
A correction is profit taking by people who have hit their price targets, usually fund managers that need to make a certain percentage per year, so they keep their jobs for the next year. This does not mean it leads into a bear market, this would mean something fundamentally wrong in the market, like the revelation of fraud in the mortgage market in 2008. You can protect from a correction by being careful if you use leverage, so you don't get a margin call.

>>32 You're better off lurking /biz/ then making a post here, also just buy Chainlink.
>>89 > So exactly what is a correction? My best guess is, when something gets inflated too high to quickly the market reacts by taking it down a few pegs. Pretty much! Corrections also happen when banking programs make guesses that end up being false but have massive market impacts- we had one in ~2017 where the markets had to be "rewound" 6 hours because machine learning software had an error that's pretty spooky to learn about. >My biggest regret is not moving all my money into American Markets before November 2016. Same for me in a little ways, but to be quite frank there was a huge amount of volatility until mid-to-late 2017 that made investing not look like a good idea. It also depends entirely on what you were invested IN- you wouldn't have made much if you were in bonds, for instance. >>72 Man, I hate to go into conspiracy theories but sometimes shit like this has a dark point. Blacks in America still own like, 50% of what they did before 2008 and that's not even getting into the issue of prison labor. >>51 Man, I didn't expect such a great comment about crypto here. The biggest sin of the crypto markets IMO, is that they seriously thought they could "upend" the whole capitalist market system when it's literally based around exploitation- not the Communist style (Though those scrawny fucks had a point) but in that it literally prizes using everything and anything to it's advantage- if it gets beaten by something, SOMEONE SOMEWHERE is finding out how to exploit it and make money off of it right away. You can play fucky with it sure, but for how long? Finance WILL find a solution.
Been researching this topic for myself lately as I have around $50k to play with and no job. Planning on starting my own dividend stock portfolio, but I'm afraid things are going too well. Probably going to start with telecomms, utilities, consumer staples, anything I can find at a good price that will (probably) survive a crash. And maybe try some basic options trading strategies. Hop on the Wheel. I already have plenty of ammo and a little silver if it all goes tits up.
>>115 > It also depends entirely on what you were invested IN- you wouldn't have made much if you were in bonds, for instance. I'm from Canada, so we had our money mostly in Canadian markets. Money was making peanuts. My mom saved up some money because she wanted to put it in American markets to see how that would go based on advice I have given her that she should try. She's informed me she's making more a week than she did in a year in Canada. I'm just trying to get my hands on anything investing related and read/watch it.

>>103 Tried to warn you, dummies. You would have almost doubled your money by now.
>>420 Why bother with something I don't understand? In a month in American markets my money went up 4%.

>>424 Nigga you're asking about financial advice on a niche fat fetish board and you're not even willing to do some of your own research? lol.
>>426 I already know everything I need to about crypto: it's a meme.
