Also have you faggots heard of TOPS?
IT'S THE NEW HOTSHIT.
can't go wrong. Trust me guys.
>mfw could have made $2000 instead if i bought and hold
>that's okay because i smelled the top and sold at .67 and now it's at .48
this shit give me a heart attack. maybe time to DWTI.
>considered buying exxi at .64 the other day
>it's now at .98
At least I woke up to gains
I've been waiting on them since Friday, so it might be a few.
Russia / OPEC meeting has been confirmed a ruse by bloomberg.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Oil should go down because the only reason it ever climbed up was because of rumors and speculation.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR ME?
I hopefully won't have to sell DWTI at a loss.
>I hopefully won't have to sell DWTI at a loss.
beta slippage is a concern if the holding isnt crazy volatile (like 3x has been)
you would lose the chance at like 10% gains because youre worried about actually making 9% ? ok i guess.
if you're down, youre down.
I am sticking to my gut which is telling me to hold, but in hindsight I probably should've took my gains the first day.
I'm closing my shit Acorns account to hopefully take matters into my own hands. I'm closing the account with $350 which I plan to invest with robinhood. Wheres a good place to start? I was thinking getting into a few Vanguard ETFs and fucking around with penny stocks to limit my risk
Which fund were you using? I throw my spare change into the moderate fund and do pretty well.
There are different funds for different caps and so forth, yeah. Doesn't take much research to figure them all out. If you're going to use RH watch out for shills peddling meme penny stocks and be careful with commodity ETFs.
you might need to contact support? If you deposit funds then wish to withdraw this same funds it should be a 5 day wait. If you sell a stock and then want to withdraw you might have a 3 day wait period and then the 5 day settle time? I am not sure, but it should not take more than a week.
Why do you guys always call out stocks that are tanking and have been tanking for years?
They've got almost perfectly linear negative growth. Why would it turn now?
Bruh I've been calling Russia bull for days now.
Buy all the RUSL and roubles you can get your hands on. It's been climbing pretty fast. After they secure a deal with OPEC, they're set to make a crazy recovery.
They are planning a take over soon.
EVERYONE BUY TOPS. I'M FUCKING TELLING YOU. YOU WILL REGRET NOT. DON'T MISS YOUR CHANCE.
JBLU get in first thing tomorrow morning
its gonna come back up, its a steal right now. earnings report this morning was good but zika scare hurt all airlines
JBLU had the best earnings report out of all of them and this was just a panic sell off, youll see it recover quickly
Ok this is getting ridiculous.
I don't know who made the other private group but I believe these groups have people that are actually serious in getting ahead of the game.
Pic related is the key to a Kik group I made. Maybe there is some way to collaborate with other groups. I'm tired of seeing meme stocks and crypto shilling.
Scan it with your phone and join.
If you are against to "luring away" of contributors then stop being filthy shit posters.
Just read the threads and add tickers to your watchlist. Don't buy anything that anyone says to in these threads just because they told you to. They don't make money by giving you free advice.
> believing the biased anti-Russian media
Literally every single day every American news outlet has reported that Russia's economy is "dead for realsies this time". Don't believe their lies.
>rt.com as source
b-but they're not lies, anon.
Oil started tanking in Oct 2014. Compare that to pic related. Russia is having major, major problems.
Okay how about Reuters?
There's no doubt the Rouble have been severely hurting, but if there's a scent of climbing oil prices, they're basically a ticket to the moon.
>scent of climbing oil prices
There won't be. Do you think that NATO has forgotten about that whole, ya know, invading Ukraine thing?
They're being punished. So will you if you buy into anything Russian.
Before I turn this into a /pol/ tier thing I'll say this. Investing is expecting a reasonable return and some security of capital. You're talking about gambling. Which is fine but there is a difference.
NATO and other sanctions aren't really hurting the Russian economy. The largest threat to Russia (and Venezuela, and Canada, and other hurting countries relying heavily on oil exports ) is 90% OPEC flooding the market so they can corner it after culling the weak.
But Saudis have finally started running deficits due to the flooding driving down prices, ISIS is causing unrest everywhere in the Middle East, and Russia is bedfellows with their worst enemy Iran but they've got no reason NOT back stab them.
It's not unreasonable to think they'd cut a deal to ease production.
Not really hurting the Russian economy? Are you serious? Energy accounts for 15% of their GDP (which is negative growth right now), 50% of their federal budget and over 65% of their exports and their over 10% inflation rate. You have no idea what you're talking about.
Yes, the Saudis are running deficits. That's probably why they're considering the worlds largest ever IPO: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-01-07/saudi-arabia-is-considering-aramco-ipo-deputy-crown-prince-says
It is unreasonable to thin they would cut production now. They haven't chosen to drive the price into the ground only to abandon it before the job is done. Buying up shale for pennies is an added benefit, not the cause.
I digress. I'm simply pointing out the distinction between investing and gambling. You'll have as much chance "going to the moon" gambling with Ethereum as you will putting it into Russia right now. I'll leave it at that.
you would have a well diversed mutual fund which would mostly follow the market. You would lose money when the dow/s&p goes down, make money when it goes up. you would make slightly more money than any mutual fund or eft because you wouldn't be paying them any fees. It's actually not a bad idea with free trades, but I would recommend not buying every company, but buy every company that is doing ok/good and or has potential. buying stocks that are tanking and going to continue to tank would be rather silly
I said NATO's sanctions specifically are doing nothing. They're mostly targeting individuals and specific companies.
The major cause of the dying rouble is OPEC raising production of oil and driving down prices which affects the ENTIRE oil industry and has been much more effective in inadvertantly depressing Russia.
There's just too much to gain by a negotiation to ignore it. The black market ISIS oil is undercutting the Saudis undercutting operation. Iran's dealings with both the US and Russia threatens to change the power dynamic of Middle Eastern politics as we know it.
There's serious potential for the deal to go through, and if it does Russia's economy will invariably benefit. You can disagree on whether the deal will actually go down or you can disagree the extent to which it will actually impact their economy, but it's not "gambling" to make picks based in geopolitical events.
>I said NATO's sanctions specifically are doing nothing.
Correct. However, that's not the only thing they're doing.
>inadvertantly depressing Russia
That's my point. It's not inadvertent. Iran and ISIS are completely separate issues. Relatively speaking - they're a drop in the bucket if you're comparing them to Saudi Arabia, Russia or even the US for that matter when it comes to oil production.
If you understand geopolitics you'd know the depressed oil price doesn't have anything to do with shale.
No, I don't think that a deal will go through anytime in the near future. Yes, it is gambling when you have two world powers fighting a financial cold war and you put your money in the middle of it. What reasonable expectation do you have for preservation of your capital? None. Their economy is imploding. Gambling. What reasonable expectation do you have for a return? Coin flip based on rumor and speculation. Gambling.
I'm not one for /biz/ meme's outside of trolling but, you really would do well to read The Intelligent Investor to at least understand the difference.
Give me an example of what isn't gambling.
You could argue a million ways about any method of picking stocks, but no one can possibly know for certain that it will go one way. The entire stock market is just speculation.
Considering making an account. Seems the only downside besides no bonds/ mutual funds is cash not being available immediately after selling. How long does it typically take yall's proceeds to settle?
Another downside is dividends are not reinvested automatically and the prices shown are polled at a slow rate. Also sometimes there's bugs, like last update broke the app for like an hour. Your money is safe and guaranteed, but if the app goes down and you don't have an order in advanced you'll lose an opportunity. It's fun to learn on since there's no fees, but if you want to get serious I'd suggest something else.
3 business days after a sale to settle and turn into buying power to buy stocks.
5 business days after that until your funds are actually withdrawable to deposit back into your back account.
Well, you can't say I didn't try. Once you deduce it down to 'the entire stock market is speculation' and 'give me an example of the example you just made in painfully long form' that's where we left the rails.
I do recommend that book though. It's dated but there is something to be gained from it.
I like the kik group but its something i only participate in like fifteen minutes at a time. annoys me that i have to load 200 messages that i'm not going to go back and read every time i open kik
>not looking at any stocks until my account gets approved
>been 3 weeks
Candlestick noob here. I read through the guide and understand the meaning of the candlestick.
As far as using them for actual trading, the guide talks about dojis, haramis, etc., but what should I be looking at as far as the simplest methods for use in trading go, until I get a better grip on their functionality?
Happy Friday, here's how to beat the market today:
If it starts out going up, buy whatever you've had your eye on. Around noon, SELL to get the gains. Then call it a day and don't bother with the afternoon, the market will drop.
If the market starts down, try to find the bottom on the stocks you're interested in. This will require your attention all day and likely be in the afternoon
Suck it nerd.
If I had more funds to invest I'd put them all on Russia bull etf.
Help me understand buying powe and limit orders.
made a good trade on labu now I'm waiting for oil to crash :)
Buying power can be used to purchase stocks, but not withdrawn. it takes about 3 days to go from unsettled to buying power after a sale.
Limit orders are just orders at a specific price. When you make a market order you're buying at market price which can change by the microsecond or not be possible to fulfill instantaneously so your market order of 100 shares could happen over a range of prices but a limit order will always be for exactly what you set.
Seems pretty risky.
It's gone down 30% in a single day just last week, so it COULD go lower. I'm buying a few based on nothing other than my gut feeling that it won't, but I've been very wrong so many times.
Nah, holding over TVIX over the weekend isn't a big deal. People usually freak on Monday mornings which is great for the VIX.
You may want to look at some of the earning reports for the different S&P components to make a more informed decision on whether you think this is a dip or not.
Guys why is it that sometimes the stocks you order are received instantly and some stay pending for a few minutes and then gets canceled? I try buying stocks when they drop, and it does this bullshit until it rises again and it either cancels on itself or I have to cancel it because the shit app wont buy it when it's low.
Also worried about it taking too long to sell and the price falling. Does this happen to everyone?
it will only buy within 5% of a market buy price. If they price changes more than 5% from the price you wanted then it will not go though. This is to protect you because robinhoods prices are delayed and you could end up paying 20% more then you wanted if the stock is skyrocketing for some reason.
That makes sense for one of the stocks, but I tried buying another one at 13c, and it was at 13c for the rest of the day, and it went up to 18c this morning. That one really pissed me off because I was trying to put down a lot of money on it.
Facebook and Sony got me sick gains.
Why is that anon? Why should this company go up? What do they produce, how are they going to turn a profit. I am looking at it and it seems like it will rise by chance/speculation only. There is not much driving behind it. NETE is much more likely to go the moon if you are looking at penny stocks.
Should I sell a stock after they've given like 8% return after like a week?
I hear all the time that like 5% annual return is pretty good, so I don't see why I should keep holding onto any stock after its given me at least that.
>bought AMD at 2.15 the other day
>got taken for a joy ride the last two days
>decide to sell at 2.18 since that was the highest it's been all day
>shit jumps to 2.20 five minutes before market closes and gets to 2.21 after hours
At least I made some gains tho...
I'm so close to finally recovering from massive $ASTI losses.
Sony, nvidia, bank of america
Pipe down, bro. Don't generalize so hard. TDAmeritrade offers 100 ETFs commission-free. IVV, for example, tracks the sp500, just as well as any other ETF will. What are you on about specifically?
The learning curve is deep but a necessary part of the experience
New to the market here but want to invest a bit in it. I read up using candlesticks and understand how to use them to estimate reversals and guess when to buy in or sell.
My question then is, given 15,000+ stocks in the market, what methods do you use to narrow down your search, to find candidates to do further, more detailed analyais with candlesticks on?
Just signed up for a count, I've thought about investing and I actually was just reading back into it today, stumbled onto this Robin Hood thing.
I'm reading some people say that it has some sort of delay, is it a pretty serious one? Does it mean that it doesn't reflect the market real time?
Also when I signed up for the account I didn't fund it cause my bank wasn't on the list (credit union), is it possible to fund it within the app as long as you have a bank account and routing number?
If you're new and buy and hold/ intermediate term, it's good enough. The no commission is great for small number investors not buying enough shares to offset the trade fee with a point or two movement. If anything, the hold will keep you from selling your portfolio to yolo buy some "hot tip."
Desperation is a stinky cologne. How badly did you fuck up that you need a greater fool to sell now?
these guys are borrowing to pay their short-term debt
>506,000 in cash
>1,270,000 in AR
>4,170,000 in AP
>13,000,000 more maturing in the next 1-5 years
On top of that net income of 1,250,000, negative ROE, negative diluted EPS. This company was literally dead in the water before they won whatever big contract last quarter. Anon you very may well lose all your investment.
Hey Robinhooders. I'm trying to do my taxes. Do I have to wait for Robinhood to send me the form 1099-b? What if I don't? I lost under 50 bucks last year and I'm just waiting on this shit. Its officially midnight, February 1st in Eastern timezone so they should have legally sent it yet I can't access it in my app.
USAT looks a little too high to buy now. I would wait till it dips again. There's a chance it could go again today, but the risk is pretty high.
Keep an eye on them though, the company looks good.
Getting it reviewed shouldn't take more than a few hours. Mine didn't, at least. Getting your bank account verified takes a little more time, though. Pretty sure it's different for everyone though, so don't actually listen to the things I'm telling you
its tsken a week. i'm guessing it's due to my short credit history (4 yrs) but i have a rock fucking solid credit score. thanks for answering. i've sent em an email and nothing yet so i'll wait
99% sure it has nothing to do with your credit score or history, because I've only had any credit history for the past few months. I'm sure they'll get your shit pushed through since you sent an email
Guys I have a question about dividends. Do you have to hold stocks for a period of time before they give you dividends, or can you buy a lot of shares the day before and sell them back after collecting? Also assume that the stock doesn't fall after giving out dividends.
>ASTI is above the 0.10 mark
So I'm guessing it's not getting delisted?
who /suicide/ here
I'm down $700 on this QTM meme.
Buds... heed my warning... don't ever gamble on earnings reports.
Good luck... remember the circumstances of my demise... or ye too shall be undone...
Does it look like UAMY will go back up to 0.30 or am I fooling myself?
>asti up 75%
Made a nice $400. When should I sell?
They won't delis a company after a raving strong quarterly report, especially since they've paid down their debts and the stock is climbing. They'll keep pushing the date back under reasonable appeal requests and ASTI will rise above the $1 mark, securing it's stay, and rallying again because of it. Buy 1,000 shares now and you'll have 3k by 2017
>didn't trust the asti meme when it was >1.3
>put in a limit buy order at .1
>when it drops from .16 to .1 my buy kicks in and I feel good
>fucking crash of 2016 and it's down to .06
>shoots up 75% today.
I still made $300 but fuck me I could have made $1500
Thanks. I bought some at .23 which was the previous low point. Thinking about buying more at .21 or .20 and waiting for it to go higher. Would that be a good idea? Also noob question: it says the volume is 1.9k and average volume 39.3m. Does that mean there are only 1.9k available shares to buy?
You too huh?
Luckily I knew better than to put all my money into it, and I had a limit sell for some of it just incase things went south.
I bought at .65 and ended up selling at .56. Down about a mere 5%, but still.
Shoulda done a bit more research, considering there was only one guy spamming about how it was going to go big on Yahoo, and everyone else said it was trash.
Did you also check it out originally because of that post that mentioned the earnings report a week ago or so?
Oh actually I sold like a third of it at .56 and the rest at .51.
I was hoping it would have one last jump, but it dropped faster than I thought, and since with robinhood, you can only have one kind if order in at once on shares, I had to choose better a limit sell if it went up, or a stop loss if it went down.
As is evident I put in a limit sell instead of a stop loss.
I'm going for long value growth and half of my portfolio is just tech. I want to diversify.
Which industry should I invest in next?
Oil and Gas looks like it's in the shitter permanently.
Real Estate looks like a bubble to me.
Biotech looks way too volatile to go long on.
I'm at a loss as to what else there is.
the market is really weird.
shipping will probably do well as well as industries that benefit from cheaper shipping like foods and restaurant distributors square up with their expanded margins. Kelloggs and tyson will probably show steady growth.
I'm also hoping ups will have a positive q4 report tomorrow, it looks like all of the markets pessimism is getting out today.
Just manage it less actively. You're not a day trader, don't act like one. Look for established companies with a stable history that are currently oversold. Pick up the undervalued stock, set a stop limit, and hold for a month or two while it recovers. While you hold, watch news and scanners to find your next picks.
Most of all, quit fucking with dank penny memes. They will not to the moon. They a shit. If a $10.00 stock plummets to $0.20/share, there's normally a very good reason.
>up less than 1000%
I'll take both, thank you. If it's not worth $1.00 per share by Feb 11 it's getting delisted. They already failed to fulfill this requirement once and had to appeal last December.
the most important question here is how long you are looking to hold it. I am confident it will rise from it's current price of 2.15 but when and by how much is hard to predict. They just need some good news.
