So I lost just over 11% on my portfolio over January, how did everyone else fair?

What are peoples opinions on purchasing new stocks in order to bring average cost prices down this month or waiting out for commodity prices and other stuff to settle down.

Im in Australia trading mainly on ASX if that helps.
>>
>>1068799
ASX brought me 70%
NYSE 30%
>>
>>1068799
Up 60% from shorting oil, the canadian dollar, the australian stock index, and longing gold and the JPY.

I was actually up 90% before russia started talking about meeting up with the saudis on oil which made me take a 30% loss or so from holding on too long to a Canadian dollar short.

Are you guys both on day trading? I tend to focus on long term opportunities

What's your portfolio look like?

If I had extra money, I'd be averaging down, since no-one else will answer your question. Personal view though
>>
>>1068799
If your portfolio has gone down, why not invest in stock you already own?

Either you chose them well and the market is just doing its thing - in which case invest in existing stock.

Or else, you chose poorly and you should sell your position in the bad ones.

How does that sound?

Did fairly ok, I guess. Only been investing since November, so I'm interested in seeing if I can keep this outperformance up.

>tfw missed the bull friday

only down 5% for the year though\
just in case people don't know, 5% loss and even 10% loss in this current market is pretty fucking good.
>>
>when you're up 10% for the month
>>
>>1068799
-20% after a 10% gain on Friday
>>
>>1068895
Surprisingly no, not in any miners or resource stocks.
>>
>>1069316
Yes
They have the US government in their pocket, I didn't predict them dipping like that at all. That being said, they STILL have the govt in their pocket, so we'll see how that goes.
>>
>>1069554
Well if nothing has changed and you did your research right then stick with it. But probably go recheck that research.

You'd think owning Lucasfilm would help, right? I dunno shit about Disney, but Star Wars man, they're gonna squeeze every last drop out of that.

In fact, they own so much intellectual property, buying them for that alone is worthwhile. In fact, you're really just buying a managed fund that specialises in media related intellectual property, and just happens to have integrated into it a studio.

You say their market value is down? I'm gonna take a fucking look at them cause it's a beautiful Sunday morning.

this is why I invested in them
They've managed to make congress pass quite a few acts for copyright protection JUST for their own IP, so they're super powerful.

I was almost fully in cash on January first. I started buying the dip, and now i have almost my whole portfolio in BAC at a cost average of $14.96 ($60k).

Diversification is for pussies.

I haven't done any trading since just before the Dec 18th rate hike. I figured something like this might happen, and i'm not convinced that it's over.

I started working on my first job for 4 months now, invested in Tesla, SolarCity and Gold

so far so good

Down 2.2%.. I like to think I saw the correction coming pretty well since I moved most of my funds to bonds. Bought equities at the beginning of last week & those went up with the rally.

Did pretty well comparatively I think but still lost money. Feels bad man
>>
>>1068900
The market is just scared because they haven't reported earnings yet and half the Dow is down
>>
>>1068799
Never try to time the markets. If you have money to invest then buy. If you don't, then don't buy and don't sell. Buy and hold.
>>
>>1069994
Any time there's a top or a bottom, someone has timed the market.

Down 2,750 for the year or 6.0%
Over all down 3,595, or 7.9%

Was way worse, but the rally on Thursday and Friday helped out a lot.
>>
>>1070005
I think he means it's darn near impossible to time the exact top or the bottom. That expectation shouldn't be there as an investor.

>>1068835
My trades are usually 2-3 days, maybe a week long depending on what's happening in the world.

Made a little on McDonalds on Pepsico

Bought Mcdonalds for 110 a share (100) and sold them for 121

and bought pepsico for 93 (100) and sold them for 99 a share.

Not a bad week.

Shorted MDLZ when Trump banned Oreos. earnings are on Feb 3rd so far lost 65%
Shorted S&P500 for June 30, down 20%
Bought VXX down 10%
Bull Friday was more like that big gay bull at a shady bar that raped me.

All I bought was 6097 units of Argo's infrastructure fund (ASX:ALI)

From now on I plan to limit cumulative buy and sell decisions to eight times per year.
>>
>>1069608
Yeah, they're probably a long term keeper. If shit happened they could always sell assets/spin off media shit and stick to their core. Shareholders always like that, right?
>>
missed FB earnings those would have been amazing. Any earning reports coming out to keep an eye on?

I've lost 60% of my portfolio since October.

Amusingly enough, not because of bad news. Just volatility and investor speculation.

Not as good as simply staying out of the damn market if you're unable to make a profit.
