>>18115097Only from 2008. Not really that oldfag.
I'm out bros I'm out
>>18115134This is bullish and priced in
Screen cap this for tomorrow when we're up another 6% and bears lose everything for choosing to hold over the weekend.
Is there any anime about cute girls trading stocks?
Markets will never go up again.
>>18115157Felig a green monday but no clue friday
>>18115116I think you'll do well, XOM is going to get pumped soon, everyone's mentioning it but it hasn't gotten the Boeing/Chevron treatment yet
>>18115137Could be worse, he could have lit it on fire by buying puts.
>>18115161Not really stocks but there's C
It is on!
>>18115161Euphoria is the only one I can think of, it even captures the experience of a being a bearbro among multiple bulls
ok bros lets get rich
How many years before bears give up on saying "bulltrap"?

>>18115184So we sell next week?
>>18115202they've been complaining since 2009, so probably never
>>18115216No, anon in that Pic will be wrong.
>>18115198This is a good timeJust go long quality thats less effectedU can rotate post q1 er if you wanna play for more gains into really fucked sectorsIm long some tech stuff
Holding through the weekend bros.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hx4gdlfamo
>>18115202I'll feel comfortable that the bottom really was Monday if we can go more than a week without a 1000+ point high volatility swing fest
>new york goes to shit>mainly worthless gig economy workers and outdated retail workers out of work>anyone with half an iq point realizes these people were mostly subsisting on gibsThis is how you get dow 50000
>>18115251Not cupkake world!!!
>>18115220The entire market is a bulltrap.It was rigged from the start.
Tomorrow will be redder than anything any of us could have ever imagined and it will come as a surprise crushing all hopes the bulls had and the bears will reign supreme for hours to come after open. Screenshot this or your future daughter will be raped by a pack of ferrel niggers and her carcass will be used by the homeless as a makeshift fleshlight till her corpse fully decays.
>>18115251Shelly is so fucking HOT
I remember when I learned about efficient market theory back in school that it was largely regarded as trash and more of a gigantic case of confirmation bias. Because if it were true there would never be crashes unless there were supernatural events like terrorist attacks.I did not see its potential shitpost value though. Kicking myself. PRICED IN
>>18115262i bet it opens green as fuck and then dumps to all hell after all bobos have lost hope.
>>18115251Kek when people realize 60% of usa economy is just velocity shit from real drivers and this has way less effect than people think
Have we hit bottom or not?
>>18115262Lmao that threat
I WANT TO MAKE A BABYWITH A CUTE AND FUNNYADULT LADY
>>18115274>Fucking everyone overSubarashi, Mr. Powell. Did Lord Bog order this?
Why are people crying about manipulation? The government broadcasts it to the whole world before they do it
>>18115277No. The S&P will bottom below 2000 within the next two months.
>>18115272Because you make wayyyy more money on human emotionImagine if entire market was warren buffet and trading in it
>muh economic collapseFucking cope bears
I’m kind of retarded, but are stocks every like Wolf on Wall Street where they “know” when to go in and when to sell it is it mostly just a gamble?
>>18115262i hope so. bulls are insufferable.
>>18115161Not really. Anime we have [C] - The money of soul and possibility of control but it's more pet fights with a somewhat markets background.We have mangas like Investor Z and Billionaire Girl.We also have a lot of gambling stuff like Kaiji, One Outs and Akagi.
>>18115277Yes. DOW 18.5k was bottom
>>18115262yeah uhhhhh, based department?
>>18115299For those firms type its mostly insider info or gamblingNot much inbetween
>>18115277it shouldn't really matter if you've thought about asset allocations in advance. stocks go down, rebalance. stocks go up, rebalance. take all of the emotion out of it, it helps.
I’m very new to this shit, but I’ve been looking at trends over the past year, assuming that the stocks will get near to what they were then. So I tell my girlfriend, so she fucking invests in AMC. I check and see the most they’ve been worth a share is $10. Why do women do this?
>futures not oscillating back>everything red now>AUS dumping harduh oh
>>18115262Lmfao, cope harder bears. You missed the dip
Futures red but it doesn't matter for fucking shit. Go ahead Jerome, pump it up to 3k tomorrow.
How many deaths per day are priced in at this point? 500?
Bullish or simply priced in?
>>18115291Because that's a different schedule from the ETF pumping they're doing.
____ _ ___
>>18115161Past Regressor is good.
Oil bros from previous thread status check. Has the oil jihad commenced and are we safe from the kung flu? Also any undiscovered oil gems you've been talking about. Heard about SSL, maybe, but its a south african company though it does seem to have a boer influence.
>>18115328It literally doesn't matter how red futures are, Jerome is going to print enough.It's entirely possible we'll see 20 trillion fed-owned assets by the end of the year.
>>18115251the farmers are going to be the ones that win in the end
ALL IN ON BBOSSUCK SHIT BULLKEKS
>>18115262The DOW'd have to dump over 2000 again for anyone to even bat an eye at this point, I think your prediction is too ridiculous to even screencap.As for your threat well if I ever allowed myself to be so cucked as to be raising a daughter I would hope one of my bros would kill me to save me the life of shame.
>>18115299In bull markets you get money for nothing. Bear markets are a gambling world for the smaller guys.
>>18115085Good afternoon stock faggots, I'm going to need to see some sauce for that
>>18115262I’m deep in puts but I know you’re that guro tranny and I don’t want to be on the same side as you because you probably don’t even lift, make under 95k and work in IT on top of having a severe mental illness
>>18115343thats a man
>>18115347Those oil production increases aren't even going into effect until April. You don't know what you're doing.
Today was your last chance to cash out and lock in gainsNo one is going to want to hold over the weekend and when everyone realises that the U.S. has #1 cases of corona and the shitty jewed 3rd world health infrastructure can't keep up next week will be deep red
>>18115328Why do we even give a shit about non-Us markets? They all just mimick the US anyways.If Bayer and VW have stellar quarters, but the US doesnt the DAX will dump. If Toyota presents great data but the DOW has a slump then good bye Nikkei.
>>18115366S&p has been negative annualized return since i started my acct. Doggy dog world out there
>>18115336all of them
>>18115262Jesus dude. So edgy.
>>18115375I am an American after all if I don't know what I am doing, that means my enemy will be also confused.
>>18115363Stop getting crazy over a 0.8% down. 2% was pumped in 3 minutes earlier today.
>>18115382everything is connected by algos
>>18115347I'm guessing the SSL pump is over at this point, since it fell down from +50% to +25% before close.Really everything is a deal right now, just make sure you're looking about book value and debt load. Nobody's actually going to go bankrupt from this and even if they do, their book values are through the roof even with the debt loads so they should be able to negotiate and acquisition from some bigger oil company rather than just sell everything in bankruptcy court.
>>18115368Use saucenao faggot
Not expecting an actual answer but how the fuck do options even work? I understand the aspect of buying the ability to sell or buy something at a certain price. This is all fine and dandy stuff. What I don't understand is literally selling the option. Are you now liable to provide said stocks? What happens if the guy who bought it from you, sells it to another guy? Are you now free from the contract?
>>18115379Cope harder, sucks that you lost money on your SPY puts
>>18115379>No one is going to want to hold over the weekendThat has been said every fucking weekend this month and only one was red.
>>18115251Watching these consoomer industries crumble brings such warmth to my soul
>>18115414There's no time, my dick is already out
If you think people are lying about NYC hospitals being hit bad, realize this. It’s bad enough that NYU, Columbia, and Mt Sinai are graduating the 4th year medical students early so they can work ASAP as emergency temporary residents. That shit is a wartime policy and doesn’t happen often if ever.
>>18115417No every chain of people who touched it get to execute whenever they wantIts an infinite energy machine
Some important people at my previous job are now getting laid off. It appears things are worse than we ever thought.
>>18115368>>18115414IT'S LITERALLY IN THE OPFUCKING READ WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU
>>18115417If you sell to close, then you relinquish the contract and the other party cannot exercise it.Selling to open carries the risk of the option buyer exercising it on you.
>>18115422I'm an Australian, we can't buy puts. I hold gold miners and a U.S. ETF so I've lost only like 5%.If you look at the GFC it spiked before plummeting back down again.
>>18115429Sauce it in the OP you coomer
>>18115431Honestly its like a play by play of Italys attempts to stop the second wave of the spanish flu. They gave entire hospitals to be run by a single first year medical student, issued quarantine orders between towns requiring people to have passports to cross, and then issued as many masks as they could.
>>18115449Stop looking at gfcIts noise
>>18115436I came here to COOM not to read a load of garbage
>>18115432What if you get picked out of everyone but don't have the stocks or cash? What if literally no one out of the whole group has whats written on the contract?
>>18115417Every option has an expiration date. Until that date the option contract has a price based on the underlying asset, time till expiration and volatility and it can be traded from person to person at that price. When it expires the holder then has the right to buy or sell the asset at the strike price. If you trade it before the expiration date then yeah you're free, if you hold it when it expires then you actually have to deal with the asset.
>>18115417if you buy an option and then sell it off, you are selling your right to exercise the option.
just bought a bunch of spy calls at close. im gonna make so much money bros. who here /bullgang/?
>>18115289i bet the bogs fucking did. I'm 30% 3x inverse etfs, about 40% stocks and index etfs, 30% cash.
How fucking delusional do you have to be to be a communist? They've been saying "this is the end of capitalism" for hundreds of years. At some point you have to admit that it's a secular version of christianity and you're waiting for your second coming of christ, saying it's just around the corner, attempting to immanentize the eschaton. Give it up you dumbfuck insects
I feel like such a retard holding ETFs instead of picking stocks when I see shit that is obviously oversold by like 80% pump 30% 3 days in a row. But I know that as soon as I buy it'll dump 90%.
>18115417as in, no, unless you wrote the option, you wont be the one eating shit if it gets exercised on you
>>18115473Southern California, I worked at a start up company, but they have a very large client that you're probably familiar with that is cutting budgets massively. They mainly service small to medium size businesses.
>>18115431>>18115459And yet somehow people here are bullish lol
>>18115489>90% of monetary benefits accruing to older than 50sTHEY CAN'T KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH THIS. COOF EM ALL
>>18115326AMC got hit hard with all the closures and will rebound once they’re reopened, just because the numbers are small doesn’t mean it’s a bad investment. Stop being autistic
>>18115382>Why do we even give a shit about non-Us markets? They all just mimick the US anyways.Exactly, you retard
It's just money.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtFyP0qy9XU

>>18115530Yeah inheritance is becoming most important way to become wealthy and it will onoy get worse each year
>>18115417I'm newer than this guy. What exactly is an option and does it occur?
>>18115508real jesus has never been tried before
Bearbros....Someone care to explain this shit right here?
jyt front page tomorrow
Why should I buy options when I can trade minifutures/certs where I can only lose my investment and still have a good leverage on bear/bull trends? Yeah, they have bigger costs but I they are guaranteed by the banks too
>>18115497>buying calls at the peak of the bull trap
>>18115417Also, if there isn’t an immediate buyer, the market makers will snatch it up to keep everything moving. You’re almost always looking to sell to close your option instead of exercising it,
>>18115417>Are you now liable to provide said stocks?Pretty much. If you wrote a Call for 10$ and the stock goes to 300$ then you have to buy that and deliver that share at a whatever loss.>What happens if the guy who bought it from you, sells it to another guy? Changes nothing for you. The contract is for buying a stock from YOU. And guy A just sold his right to buy from you to guy B. Follow up:>So how do I cut my losses or hedge if I write a call and it goes wrong?You buy a call yourself.
>>18115570READ THE FUCKING OP>>18115576youre fucked, thats what that is
>>18115579Mb for stock picking
>>18115497I hope you go fucking broke but then again I have no doubt Powell will be at it again tomorrow.
>>18115578I can't believe Gantz folded to Bibi. Bibi has serious kikepowers.
>>18115579Huh? The only thing you might lose if you BUY options is your initial investment. It works (pretty much) exactly like a warrant from a bank.
>>18115497i'm buying but not willing to put an expiration on the purchase.
>>18115520When the only tool that you got is a printer every problem looks like it can be solved by BRRRRRRR. Also we haven't seen the end of this, this is just the beginning, I wonder how the markets are going to react when China gets its second wave of infections due to a relaxing of their quarantine.
>>18115431Shoulders look a bit big... varbie?If you got fake tits, you might not have a problem with a little juice.>>18115530Boomers win. Never bet against them, it is literally gambling against the devil himself. I don’t like it. But it is.>>18115510Yeah... saw that selloff yesterday in target and Kroger and thought it was dumb as fuck. Look at it today, damn.>>18115516I didn’t realize you were so close by!SoCal chads... buying the cheapies.
>>18115598load up! we're going to 25k in a week or two
>>18115597>a single fucking %
>>18115341the only ETF they are buy ins LQD
>VIX futures mooningoh no no no NO NO NO
>>18115590My bad. The one that I'm not seeing, when/what stocks have an expiration date for them?
>>18115612Then how do retards lose their shirts on WSB? Do they have insane leverages? I started investing yesterday and am 20% up but I havent leveraged much either. Cant you go into debt with a shitty put/call?
>>18115603Legit?Gantz was very disappointing dessssu but a hell of a ride.Also, bibi is a wartime leader, and with the saudis and Iranians starting shit up, it makes sense. Sometimes I wish we didn’t have our weird term limits, but also I don’t want 10+ years of bush or Obama or trump or something.
>>18115262>implied superiority>racism>anti-bull rhetoricWhy, I never.Never thought anyone could be this BASED.
>>18115631don't worry it will be up 8% tomorrow after the bill officially passes, cap this and checkem
Doubt much is gonna happen but the futures are slowly falling and SPY is down to 257 and dropping. I might set up a few cheap puts pre trading hours. See how the night is.
>The overall positive tone in markets this week -- better market functioning thanks to liquidity injections from central banks and now the stimulus bill in the U.S. to complement the ones we’re seeing in Europe -- I think overall, there’s still a positive tone here,” said Brian Nick, chief investment strategist at NuveenWHY ARE INVESTMENT KEKS SO FUCKIN DELUDEDMARKETS AREN'T HEALTHY, IT'S NOT CONFIDENCEIT'S LITERALLY JUST FUCKING FED PUMPING MONEY
>>18115652They just go all in on options
>>18115641>he one that I'm not seeing, when/what stocks have an expiration date for them?What do you mean anon? Do you mean which stocks offer options? Stocks don't have an expiration date, only options. Do you have a broker? You can go to any blue chip company and see their option section to see what the common expiration dates are.
>>18115638Even in the incredible scenario of limit down it still doesn't even clear last night's big push up.
>>18115652If you buy on margin maybe
bobos, i can't take it any more. this week is too demoralizing. my puts will expire worthless and i will just buy a share of tim apple every friday no matter green or red.
>>18115672Markets wit massive stimulus and a huge runway of dovish environment is bullish
>>18115655It's not like he didn't have the seats to make a government but he apparently split up his Blue and White coalition to join Bibi alone. No Liberman needed. He Jewed his Jew partners.
>>18115570In very simplified terms, options are alternatives to actually purchasing stock (although you can also own a stock and purchase an option as insurance). The name “option” is a clue into what it is; buying an option gives you the option to buy a stock at a particular price (a call) or to sell a stock at a particular price (a put). Again, you don’t actually need to own the stock to do this, it just gives you the option to do so. For every option purchased, there is a premium; this is the maximum amount you will be able to lose. With that premium paid, you purchase an option that guesses where the stock price will be at a particular expiration date. You’ll then close the option before the expiration date (unless you’re trying to exercise the option, but that doesn’t really happen too often for this kind of trading) based on when you think is a good time to sell. TL;DR it’s a bet on whether or not a stock will go up (call) or go down (put)
>>18115672>chief investment strategisthe's shorting and trying to cuck the common man when they read that article and think its time to BUY BUY BUY
>>18115262Jokes on you, I have two sons.
How did bill ackman turn 27 million into 2.7 billion.
>>18115652Some of them abuse leverage and get fucked, others HODL their options until expiration date and they become worthless. Never underestimate the utter stupidity of r*ddit.
Do you guys look at the financials of a company before deciding to invest? A company’s balance sheet and income statement? Or is it just pure trends?
i have over 100k in a bank account, didnt take advantage of the big market the past 4 years. thought this was a sign to get into the market but figured it will still be bad for another month as the quarantine continues and cases and deaths will shoot up, so i didnt pump it all into my 401k 4 days later, market up 20% because the fed is pumping fake money into it and probably gonna keep shooting up anyway. i missed my chance again
>>18115709he got lucky
>>18115323>take all of the emotion out of itEveryone should take this advice to heart. It's really the number one rule for trading and investing. If you're emotionally attached to an equity or are spiritually bullish or bearish, you will set yourself up for failure. You can take a view that trends bullish or bearish, but ultimately you need to make educated guesses about market activity and conditions and distance yourself from intense feelings about your estimations. You will be right and you will be wrong. Learn from your mistakes and try to approach things rationally. That said, shitposting is fun, but don't let it cloud your judgement. If you must follow a /biz/ idol, let it be the almighty crab, for he is forgiving and merciful in the face of periodic volatility.
>>18115672DONT FIGHT THE FED
>>18115709Hedge put otm with tons of leverage to someone really dumb
are you guys bullish on cruise stocks?
>>18115679I've been using Robinhood. I just don't understand shit as of yet.
>>18115437Who would buy a contract that they can't even exercise?
>>18115711Look at whichever company ate shit the hardest recently and invest in them, they're getting a bailout guaranteed.
>>18115663The bill passing is priced in. It's all bad news now for the next four weeks at least, unless there's some deus ex machina miracle cure.
>>18115652>Then how do retards lose their shirts on WSB?They take all their money and put it into one move and the move goes wrong.Or it goes right, they think they are smart and it goes right again and... now they lost it all.>Do they have insane leverages?You remember the ""flash crash"". Maybe not? That swas the small dip on February 20th. The SP just dropped 2% out of nowhere. Here that was a moderate annoyance. Over there like 30% probably just lost half their money because they held weekly calls. A small dip like that will wipe away all your positions.>Cant you go into debt with a shitty put/call?You can only lose more than you invested if you write an option. If you buy an option your worst loss is 100%. You spend 100$ and lose 100$.And CFDs and so on but thats another topic.
>>18115706can you give an example of this using the nomenclature people use for calls/puts? like the thing "240/17 SPY puts" or whatever that i see a lot
>>18115711mostly memes, mate
>>18115709by agreeing with some retard that believed there was no way it would crash this much.
>>18115731You can sell that contract to someone else later
Has anyone ever dealt with TD Ameritrade service? I need to call them but I fucking hate talking on the phone and was thinking if I could maybe solve it by other means.
>>18115709He bought $27M worth of shit and then sold it for $2.7B. It's an activity called "trading".
>>18115652You can lose a lot by SELLING puts / calls and combinations of them. When you buy options, you don't have to exercise them, you just waste the premium if you don't.
>>18115365don't make me do it anon
Also ackman basically timed everything perfect even crying on cnbc to juice his buy in a few %
>>18115539Sweet Jesus they really are the Enemy of the People who hate this country.

>>18115730see>>18115706Good summary.You can go on Robinhood and look around the interface of the options tab to get a better idea. Why did this Boeing call go up 200% compared to another only up 50%? Why are the further dated options less profitable? Navigating the section might be a good visual aid in addition to looking at investopedia.

>>18115789what is the point of this cia webm
>>18115706Alright, this is starting to make more sense, so basically an option is more of a "safe bet" per say, because it's already the maximum you can lose. So are expiration on in regard to options?
>>18115085What does this picture have to do with stocks?
>>18115748So basically, if you never want to be liable you just never sell open contracts? In order words your only clients are other niggers like yourself who have no ability to exercise the contract?
>>18115722i fought jerome and the fed won
>>18115744SPY 5/1 200pThis means a put on SPY, priced at 200, expiring 5/1. This is a bet that is dependent on SPY dropping at least below 200. I’m not sure what the premium on this is, but it would have to hit low enough to make up for the premium as well. Someone more nuanced in options autism can be much more specific than me
>>18115672>MARKETS AREN'T HEALTHY, IT'S NOT CONFIDENCEWhere did you get that? Everyone here, excluding those who shorted, have huge confidence on the stock market.

>>18115815It's priced in.
>>18115814Options are actually the riskiest type of investment to make, simply because of how premiums and expiration dates work. You either need to pay a lot up front for very little profit on something that may or may not happen, or if you’re chasing that big payday, pay less up front for a bet that may or may not happen. Since options are short term, if the market doesn’t move the way you needed it to, there’s no waiting it out. You’re just fucked. Expiration dates are in regards to options, yes

>>18115744Put SPY 200 4/3 or SPY 4/3 200pOption: You go for a put. The right to SELL a stock at a certain price to someone.Stock: SPY Strike price: 200$. You gain the right to sell 1 SPY at a price of 200$.Date: The date when the option expires.What does that mean for you:Lets say you bought this option for 3$.So if the SPY goes to 196$ on the 3rd of April, you could sell it for 200$. A profit of 4$ Minus the 3$ investment.If it goes to 194$ you would make a profit of 6$. Minus the 3$ investment. A profit of a 100%.Now there are the Greeks. Lets say the Spy goes down to 201$ an hour after you bought the option.Can you exercise it? No.But: The price has already risen a lot because the option has a time value. The option is worth more, if the experation dtae is further away. You can already sell the option for a great profit.Nobody exercises options btw. We buy them and sell them. Exercising them makes no sense because even on their last day they have a time value.
>>18115744>>18115825Specifically on calls and puts, the actual price of the stock has to be at a level under or over the strike price based on how much the premium was.For example, if you buy X option at $10 strike and the stock price is $10.01 at option expiration, then it will usually expire worthless because it's not worth it for the option holder to exercise that option. Sometimes they might out of spite or if they think the stock will go up soon, though.It's called the breakeven price and it all varies based on how much the stock is currently worth (the closer the strike of the option to the actual price of the stock the more the premium), the length of time the option is good for (longer timeframes are worth more) and how much volatility there is in a stock (something that rarely goes up or down won't have as valuable options).
>>18115749Grow up and call them dude
>>18115783So much about the way this crisis is playing out is rooted in this.
>/smg/ full of smug bullsyou know whats next
>BOUGHT Regeneron at ~425 today on an order I forgot aboutGOT A GOOD FEELING A BOUT THIS>>18115672>B. nick at nuveenLiterally fucking who?No thanks.>>18115695Yes. But for me it’s inverse ETFs>>18115704It’s politics bud. It’s just like it is here. The politicians are a private club, whoever wins everyone else loses.>>18115887Options aren’t investments and neither are shorts or precious metals. They’re hedges and speculations.
>>18115887Does a "put" refer to putting money up beforehand? And is a "call" like you're calling it (like no country for old men) that the stock will be good?
>>18115887Long dated for leverageYou can roll too. Move from deep itm to atm etcThey are fun but dangerous
>>18115921Bobos losing their shirts?
Wait so now that the Fed has carte blanche to buy mortgage backed securities, will they repeat 2008 once wagies can't pay due to the virus?
>>18115892>You’re always so salty lmaoI bought the dip. Why should I be salty? I haven't even lost anything yet. Salty are those who bought SQQQ, and I have nothing to do with that.
>>18115262Impossible, there are no niggers in my cellar.
Look at it desperately trying to clear the closing pump, and you think it will be red tomorrow?
>>18115907>But: The price has already risen a lot because the option has a time value. The option is worth more, if the experation dtae is further away. You can already sell the option for a great profit.And because the strike price is now way closer and reaching the strike price is way more probably. Also volatility is in play but thats another topic you will learn about when it makes you money or fucks you over for the first time
>>18115925that is exactly what it is
>>18115921When DOW fell sub 19000, /smg/ was flooded with gay bears. Seems fair, your time is up bobo.
>>18115852It’s not free money because you paid a premium to get into the position in the first place. You have the option, not the obligation to buy/sell the stock. It’s very silly but that’s the difference between actually owning the stock and owning an option. That and the option itself is a speculative bet on the stock price, and the stock is just the stock.
>>18115934yes as a matter of fact i am salty. these SQQQ bags are heavy.
>>18115937Kek, Is this you?
>>18115907>>18115910i appreciate the time. im so confused, im too fucking stupid to risk my money on this shit.
>>18115491I thought that was only for futures. Options you are not obliged to do anything when it expires.
VDHG up and BBOZ also up. Blessed day.
>>18115722Nobody is trying to fight them, more like we're watching in disbelief as they distort the grim realities of the 2020 marketplace while massively debasing currency accrued by fiscally responsible individuals and failing to let the free market be penetrated and exploited by them, as it should be.
>>18115974>im too fucking stupid to risk my money on this shityou mean not stupid enough
>>18115764america belongs to jews, an enemy of america is an ally of the people.
>>18115927Listen to this man, he knows way more about this than my babby self
>>18115968Do you have the option to not pay the "premium"?
>bullfags think unlimited BRRRR is healthy for the economyYou are in for a grim remainder: you can't print yourself out of economic disaster.
How much have people actually invested in stocks and how much have all of you either lost/gained.
>>18116003nig are you serious right now
>>18115922Technically an investment because you’re committing money to something in anticipation of more money, but I’m being a semantical faggot
>>18116003lol i fucking wish
>>18116007$1000If I had just sat with what I bought on monday I'd have like $1400-1600 right now but instead I decided to short the bottom of the dip
>>18116007I bought 100 shares of boeing 3 days ago but I lost the sticky note with my Ameritrade account login info so idk how much I've made, is there a way to find out without logging in?
>>18116020no, it's speculation. not investment.
>>18115974In truth, unless you're an insider or have a ton of time to devote to researching companies, it's really not worth it to trade in calls and puts.I only do covered calls to generate income and the occasional put to secure an investment. Just the covered calls alone can make me an extra 10-20% a year.
>>18116004Fed memes are priced in.
>>18116003no, you have to pay the premium in order to have the option
>>18115974Eh. Youll get a hang of it.The most important thing I learned is not to gamble on shit stuff. Stuff like biomemes and so on. Only invest in something you understand and only with money you can afford to lose. If you lose sleep over stocks you invested too much. Even if it works out.Also most here have no idea whats going on right now and if you are in the game for two days you might as well just watch for now and see the funny colours go up and down. Way smarter people than us are frustrated with this market.
>>18116007I'm up over 13% initial investment. I liquidated. You can't go broke earning a profit.
>>18115934Keep on Truckin fellow bull
Didnt this exact same thing happened in 2001 and 2008? Granted 2008 was more to do with institutional investors but 2001 wasn’t. What is Ben Bernanke saying about the crisis this time around?
>>18116007i have 13k in right now boomer investing and have lost 10k doing options and penny stocks
>>18116007I put in 7500 last week because the crash is over, I'm up 1300.
>>18116007i'm up 5% on 2.5k which is about 20% of my liquid worth. I'm playing to minimize losses on my 401(k) which i moved from cash about a week ago.I'm a poorfag degenerate gambler.
>>18116043The best strategy in market is long+covered calls. Its the casino house
>>18115585Let me get this straight.You can write a call -> someone (whoever owns the contract and exercises it) will then buy x amount of stock from you at priceYou can sell a call (that you had bought from someone else at some point) -> profit (or lose) from premium and you're off the hookSame thing with puts.
>>18116036“The action or process of investing money for profit or material result”“A thing that is worth buying because it may be profitable or useful in the future”It’s a speculative investment, I’ll definitely agree with that Either way you’re not actually buying into the stock, you’re buying into a speculative process, which is still a thing
>>18116052Crab friday iffyBull monday
>>18115920i love her so much, bros
>>18116051But isn't it optional?
In a regular market, does /SMG/ use Iron Condors and Strangles to make free money? Is it best to do them on index funds instead of individual funds?
>>18116068>because the crash is overNice crystal ball hope it pays off for you. (it won't)Your buy and hope strategy is a losing one.
>>18116068>>18116065Poorfags>>18116065This is good bait
>>18116007In for ~3k, made 230 on Mon, put it back in on Tues and now I'm down $500.
>>18116102There is no hoping.The crash is over.
I'm a complete faggot who has nickel and dimed my finances since I was a kid, always worried about wasting money, conserving money, not buying dumb shit, worrying about saving a few bucks here and thereThen I get to my adult life and even though everyone makes money on the market, I'm too afraid to put any of my money into it so I've lost probably thousands of possible gains
I FUCKING HATE BEING A BEARbut I love Deborah
>>18116073>You can write a call -> someone (whoever owns the contract and exercises it) will then buy x amount of stock from you at priceYes>You can sell a call (that you had bought from someone else at some point) -> profit (or lose) from premium and you're off the hookIf you buy an option you are never on the hook. The most you can lose is the money you paid initially.I think you watching this is easier than me writing it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJgHkAqohbU>>18116089My guess as well.But I didnt put my money where my mouth is.. yet
>>18115984they were created to stem market malfunctions that lead to severe economic contradictions such as the Depression
i just want to warn the tourists reading /smg/ today. the posts you're seeing are a combination of gamblers and long term investors, unfortunately you will not be able to tell the difference between the two. i recommend reading the OP and educating yourselves instead of listening to random people on the internet before you put your hard earned neetbux at risk.
>>18116142You lose 100 percent of the money you don't win on the market
>>18116134I think ffridays red get s bought hard into close if it even lasts to close
>>18116102>Nice crystal ball hope it pays off for you.Aren't you the one with a crystal ball here?
Finna drop £15k on Slack. Some some please stop me
>>18116142>lostTechnically you lost nothing, because you didn't invest. You saved.
>>18116163so youre saying i should buy more spy shorts?
>>18116163This man is deceiving you. Don't believe his lies
>>18116163Unironically thanks for the advice .
>>18116142YesLook up index fundsthey beat most managed stuff you csn buy in NOW and be very happyPut ur money to work asap
>>18116163any retard who would come here for investment advice and not blatant bear/bull shitposting deserves to go broke.
>>18116163you've got to go back to wallstreet bets faggot
I'm so fucking SICK OF IT AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>18116163where do you think we are?
>>18116137I mean I’m just using the dictionary definition of investment, I’m sure that finance professionals have different definitions based on risk assessment And that’s all I’m going to invest into this semantic ass conversation
>>18116147Brix and Fauci are like Trump's 2 shoulder spirits. Brix is the angel that always sugarcoats things and Fauci is the devil being very pessimistic about mostly everything.
>>18116163Only a complete tool takes anything here at face value.I come here to shitpost, discuss and maybe get some ideas of stocks to look into. Some "BUY OGI, YOU NIGGAS!" made me look into OGI before its stellar earnings. Same with BYND. 90% goes straight into the trash though.
Has the government or banks agreed to suspend mortgage payments? A lot of people will eat shit once they don't have the incoming to make the payments.
>Best Health tech in the world>Had 3 weeks heads ups>"Dude America is gonna get REKT by this"Literally Italy told you what would happen.

>>18116252Why did you waste all that time, anon?
>>18116242He hasn't even mentioned side effects of recover or the drugs they keep pushing. Why don't they talk about that at these bullshit press conferences?
I could spend 100 hours reading about options, and still have literally no idea what the fuck. glad to see other brainlets itt.
>>18116252Are you buying, holding, or selling?Why are you doing that?
>>18116252Where were you when you found out that Economics is junk science
>>18116252Big line go up or down
>>18116222you should at least be aware of the distinction, in investment terminology, between speculating and investing. not going to argue with trips though.
I've had enough I'm going to wsb, at least they make some money there. I'm tired of delusional bulls who yell priced in all day like a bunch of fucking animals. The fucking loliposters ruin my mood as well, what the fuck is this? And the weak handed bears, who cry it's over every time the market jumps $10. If you're too stupid to see that the market is incredibly, artificially inflated right now you're fucking crazy. Prepare to eat shit when it collapses next week when the real infection numbers kick in and unemployment hits 4mil making a total of nearly 7.5 mil unemployed muricans which is roughly 2,5% of the workforce. Take care.
>>18116406This is a very fair and reasonable point to my neverending faggotry
>>18116270I watched one youtube video on it and am an expert now.It's like horse races but with stocks.
>>18115140are they still planning to make James Bond female?
>>18116509see you tomorrow anon
>>18116252See the sad thing about a guy like you is in about 50 years you’re gonna start doing some thinking on your own and you’re gonna come up with the fact that there are two certainties in life. One, don't do that. And two, you dropped a hundred and fifty grand on a fuckin’ education you coulda got for a dollar fifty in late charges at the Public Library.
