/smg/ thread jannies suck my cock you kike lovers edition
I feel bad for jannies. Inflation must really be affecting their salary negatively.
FUCK ITBOIL REGARDLESS
Well, the last 3 days I've been trying to come up with a market neutral pairs trade and writing options, eg +200 SPY / -200 VOO, but then writing whatever. It looks like if it experiences a 6-7% swing, I lose bigly, otherwise I'm only getting like $500 against a hypothetical position size of $75,000. Not great.
>>54200109why would you do that???? why do people insist on doing such complicated bullshit that probably doesnt even work, instead of just investing in good companies or indexes?keep it simple, stupid
>>54200210Well, I had an idea so I thoroughly tested it, and found out that it doesn't work. So now I move on to the next idea.>Investing>While the market is going to be in freefall this year
Buying a house I partially inherited. Realized I never submitted a new deed so that will be my headache next week. >>54200222Invest in puts. Then buckle up to get fucked by mm.
Is it over?
>>54200054Let's go BOIL. I'm 500 shares deep. The 20% drop on Friday did not phase me.
>>54199815No links edition?
>>54200361You understand that US fracking makes natural gas basically free in the USA?
>>54200222uhh yeah that's precisely when you want to buy retard. when things have tanked
It's that woo WOO. The whistles go WOOOOOOOOOOO.
>>54200412Fundamentals haven't changed, shit is still objectively fucked. I will be waiting with cash
Fuck it we ballFuck it we ballFuck it we ball
>>54200385We need more natural gas power plants.
>>54200476Do that for 1929
>>54200385So should I move into KOLD then?
What's the appropriate punishment for someone who calls the Fed "the FED"?
>>54200361333 shares, and every 1% hurts pretty hard core.>>54200385Weird how they bill people for it, pay all the workers, pay for the equipment, pay for the land use, pay for the storage, pay for the transport, and all that, for something that's basically free, then. They must be nuts to pay all that for free shit.They pay out the ass with no fucking around when dealing with leaks too. I found a leak one night at about 8-9pm, called, and within about 30 min they were there, and soon after had about 7 trucks and 3 backhoes out all night and most of the next day on it. That was a lot of to do over some free shit. I am sure all those workers enjoyed being out here all night for no pay.
>>54200502>What's the appropriate punishment for someone who calls the Fed "the FED"?HOLUP "The FED" is wrong? Then what is it? What does FED even stand for?
>>54200561>What does FED even stand for?Joe Federal (CEO of the federal reserve)
>>54200551US natural gas costs about 1.3$ per mmbtu locally. Its also super effecient for home cooking, heating, and electrical needs (mostly dryers/washers). To ship it? About 2-3$ more that can be sold for $13 to japan currently.
Big if true
I havent had sex since memorial day 2022
>>54200656Your asshole should be fine by now.
PFFFFTTTT There's a company called doo doo. You're investing in SHIT aaHAHAHAHHAHAAAA. We're screwed.
>>54200606Maybe that's why Mootikins had to make those big GOOGbux before he could move and be a fag over there instead of here.
1 more week until the big crash .what put options to buy this week would be most profitable?
>>54200708TSLA? i believe it just had a mini pump
>>54200708I believe that SOXL has to go down enormously with how absurdly NVDA has been pumping.
>>54200671Yikes, I do business with some of those companies

Everyone here is in college/trade school or has an actual decent job (70k+ a yr in average cities, 90k+ in NYC/California) right? There aren't any actual 20/hr dead end wage slaves here right?

>>54200892all in tesla
>>54200734Wouldn't NVDA puts be better than soxl puts then?
>>54200921If NVDA had a retard rally, then it broke the trend and volatility/IV is up. You'll lose value on that. Safer to get a broad etf imo.>>54200922Also I should point out >2023The dip hasn't happened yet imo.
>>54200887I make 70k+ in the midwest. I've noticed that most people here are NEETs living with their moms.
>>54200887Sorry I'm one of those. It's great when you are making more than actually going to work though
>>54200887i make barely 100k with overtime but it's in CAD so it's really just 50k or something usd after taxes
>>54200887Just started a lab job that pays 60k a year in commiefornia. Out of curiosity I looked at median wages here and am shocked to learn I’m in the 75th percentile. I’m poor as fuck but 75% of people make less money than me? I make enough to make ends meet but nothing more. Idk how anyone affords rent on less.
>>54198500Uhh what explain. I have a decent chubk of cash just sitting there waiting and doing nothing. Am I safer off sending it to my bank?
>>54201009who are you comparing urself todoes it include people on welfare or teenagers working at mcd

>>54201049In a liquidity crisis, even well established institutions may restrict withdrawls or trades while waiting for stability. This is why you diversify. Not just across assets or strategies, but platforms as well.

>>54200640Oh boy I shouldve sold all my SOXL. I think I broke even on my shares finally but decided to hold
>>54200640I dunno if the market will interpret this as QE time or shit is fucked
>>54201049They might bait a recession to put uppity wagies back in cagie but they'll never let anything serious happen to rich people's money. If it's bank failures or printing they'll print 100 times out of 100.
>>54199815>>54199044LMAO how is it not obvious that the man is a CIA operative?
>>54201209because the CIA doesn't operate on domestic soil

shit OPshit thread
>>54200921According to one anon here SOXL will perform badly because Intel will manage to drag down the performance
I haven't been paying attention. What bank should I buy on the dip? M&T?
>>54201111I've always wondered the same thing back when I started out as a lab tech making 40k a year in Texas right out of college. I only had a few hundred dollars left over after food + rent + utilities. I make 75k now as a lab supervisor and save/invest 3000 a month. Funny how my income almost doubled in two years yet my savings 10x'd. Then again I think I'm just used to being poor with my modest apartment and cheap hobbies. Meanwhile my sister makes 110k a year and has absolutely no fucking savings. She travels 4-5 times a year, drives a 50,000 dollar Tesla, eats out every day, and has her own personal trainer. Constantly flaunts her wealth on Instagram and Snapchat. She's never had more than 10k in her bank at any given moment and has asked me to borrow money. Fucking embarassing. She bought me pic related for Christmas last year though so I don't say shit to her./blog >>54201291>I haven't been paying attention. What bank should I buy on the dip? M&T?EWBC if you're smart, JPM if you want free money, FRC if you're retarded.
>>54201249normally when people refer to CIA they refer to one of their many, many branches :)

>>54201009>californiastatistics are wrong because a huge portion of the population is working for cash under the table and mopping up gibs by having zero income on paper
>>54201431LMAO what kinda obsessive schizo has time for this crap?
>>54201352economic illiterates like your sister are the norm, they just adapt their spending to the higher income and be poor anyway. give them another 50% raise and they still are poor but with extra shiny designer shit nobody needs

>>54201919Don't worry bro, there's a non zero chance Buffett buys FRC
I'm happy when /smg/ makes money. We're all this together bros. Never forget that this coming week when everything goes to shit.
>>54202150If everything goes to shit i make money.
just got back from a wedding - took an Uber homeI asked my Uber driver if he had noticed any recession in his experience driving Uber, he said no - he asked me what I did I said finance - my Uber driver then proceeded to explain the banking crisis in detail to me better than any faggot in /smg/ could (age 24)I don't know what to think - everyone is so involved in the market, and knowledgable on information that used to be 'private'The whole concept of "dumb money" is now challenged in my mind - is the money that dumb?How dumb is dumb money today compared to dumb money 100 years ago?>JPM-shoeshine-boy.png
>>54202150i work with a bunch of constructions guys and they all say they're getting less calls for jobs lately. plumber i know said things are quiet. used to call him up and he'd be like "dude i'll get there as soon as I can is next week okay?" and lately it's like "i can be there this afternoon.">>54202243so he reads the journal, he (and we) are still very much dumb money. while there is more access to information today, the outcomes haven't changed
>>54202260>while there is more access to information today, the outcomes haven't changedI hear you - I find this hard to believe. I can't imagine that the outcome is the same now compared to 1929the average retail investor is so much smarter, with access to so much more informationI can't believe that the outcome is the same, regardless of the 'wisdom' or the information advantage of the retail investor.. this challenges everything that I know to be true in finance, that the harder you work, the more information advantage you gain, the better decision making you can make Perhaps it's all relative, that the distance between the retail trader vs the quant programmer is the same as it was between the retail investor and people trading the floor in 1929
>>54202260There is also tons of disinformation. Even institutions which were deemed trustworthy in past are spreading propaganda and lies. Personally I spend lots of energy trying to find information that is useful. And even then I often make a bad judgement.
Anyone has a link to the previous thread?
>>54202281the advantage the average investor has now is the access to low cost index funds, but i don't think dumb money is any smarter.>>54202326a lot of the information probably steers people wrong, desu. really the way to find a good stock is to read 10ks and then develop a wishlist for when a stock "goes on sale" due to some general market turmoil so you can buy a good company cheap. But, it's really hard to value companies, especially complex ones like banks. I can only start to do the most simple companies like basic manufacturing ones. I'm still probably better off to just be buying VTI but i find it fun to mess around with this stuff.
>>54202099>I don't know anything about optionsIn that case you should tread lightly.
0 bepis next weektotal market collapse next year
How low can BOIL go? Bought 2500 shares at 4.89 hoping for gains in a year or so.
>>54202359> But, it's really hard to value companiesI completely agree. I gave up on the idea of me being able to value them. I mean, if you think about it, fund managers do exactly that: analyze numbers and build models. And yet most of them can't beat S&P500 despite them being professionals.I think it's kinda insane to assume that you will be able evaluate a company in few evenings based on public information only. And don't forget about macro conditions changing constantly. Even manufacturing companies you mentioned are very complex if you consider how many things influence their profitabiliy such as raw materials prices, labour quality and availability, regulatory stability, competition, balance sheet health, consumer trends + cycles, stability of their partners (suppliers + clients), rogue board members trying to sink the company, And at the end of the day you must predict how those things will change going forward to evaluate if it's worth buying shares of this company. Shit is fucked.I gave up on an idea of me being able to evaluate all this. Nowdays I just look at most basic things:- balance sheet- cash flow- revenue growth YoY + MoM (earnings can be deceiving if company is reinvesting in a smart way)- quality of the product + website- commodity prices + situation if this is a commodities companyI also diversify a lot. I rarely have a position that goes over 2% of the total value of my portfolio. This way I'm protected from the fallout of my misinformed decissions. I also started buying more ETFs, so far they are performing pretty well so maybe this is the way to go for a retard like me.
i'm new to trading and investing and have been reading a lot lately, i have my concepts clear but I still lack some understanding. i have been dca'ing into various ETFs boglehead style for the path months. seeing this uncertainty, is it a goos idea to short indices and buy vix for a hedge? If I do I have to do it with a lot of leverage so I'm not sure if I'll be able to handle the margins if the dead mans bounce is too strong
>>54202243>knowledgable on information that used to be 'private'it was never "private" knowledge, just because your niggerbrain doesn't know or you didn't pay attention
>>54202434>i have been dca'ing into various ETFs boglehead style for the path months.all anons here started like this...>seeing this uncertainty, is it a goos idea to short indices and buy vix for a hedge?and ended up deep in the red after gambling with options and derivatives like this
>>54202434>good>dead cat bouncewhat I mean is that I may be able to cover the margins if the market doesn't rally too much, but if it goes tits up (up to early 2022 levels) I may be getting margin calls. how can I manage my risk best? is the market even able to reach that high at this point?
Did the Fed lose control over the yield curve? It completely detached from fed funds rate. Will it reattach after a measly 25 bepis hike? Why would it
>>54202471>gambling with options and derivativesis buying vix and shorting indices to hedge against stock investments really gambling?
>>54202434if you're a (((bogle)))head (no leverage) then you hedge by diversifying your portfolio and not by going max leverage shortfor degenerate plays you open a second account and go max leverage, like any sane person would do
>>54202431If you're max position is 2%, you might as well buy VTI or VOO.
>>54202559your* (i got no sleep)
>>54202491bonds are working this year like expected - as a """save haven""" tradelast year was the equity+bonds bloodbath because who wants to buy a 1% yield in a rate hiking environment
>>54202510that makes sense. I think I may be undervaluing the risk of leveraging. leverage plays need leveraged hedges, so hedging with leverage would need a leveraged hedge of the hedge. with the current situation betting for a crash in the long run seems worth the risk, the risk is being able to cover the margins.
>>54202566>who wants to buy a 1% yield in a rate hiking environmentDidn't we just have people buying 0% bonds, and they're still hiking
>>54202559Sure, but it's not as fun. I'm kinda trying what Peter Lynch was doing. He was also diversifying quite a lot and following basic rules. I'm also looking for small companies mostly looking for good growth stories. No clue if it will be the right move, I guess I'll let you know in 10 years
>>54202605good luck. i do think we might be in a great position here to get some really good buys, be it index funds or individual stocks. even now we're down pretty good, and it may even go lower if we're lucky.
>>54202595who is buying 0%? they are going into short term, the 6M opened at 5% on Friday and people slurped hardjust shows that the stock market is going into a real shit show
>>54202644We had a thread yesterday with that in OP. Here's Eurodollar University retard talking about ithttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_wPGSfUEFY
>>54202580you're either a long-term (10+ years) boglehead style index or divvie with low beta stock investor (long only), preferable diversified into multiple sectors and commodities and even some % metals like gold (which is a good hedge btw. especially with that banking shit going on right now)or you're trading with leverage on a short to medium term, do some degenerate earnings or other important economic prints plays for the extra day to day dopamine kick (at least for the first few months or so)don't mix both into one account and you're good.even if your stopped out of your margin plays you still have your "long term" one.. otherwise you might come to a point to cover your short term levered positions with your long term then you're going into a real shit show as a newbie trader and lose it all.
>bought a bunch of commodities last year>getting a bunch of k-1s in the mail for taxeswhat do i even do with this shit?
You forgot about the September 2022 Bank of England £65 billion emergency bailout, already. Haven't you?
>>54202939I still wonder how they pulled it off with both QT and pension fund bailout, they just continued rate hikes after that and market shrugged it off. now they are at 4% and FTSE hit ATH this year..
>>54202939It's just business as usual. As long as McDonalds has lights on nothing will change.
