"Reddit is where stupid people go to act smart. 4chan is where smart people go to act stupid." - Anon
I have $10,000 to invest. I will let 4chan invest $5000 of it. I will let Reddit invest the other $5000. Futures, stocks, currencies, whatever.
The window is 30 days.
Whichever site grows the $5k the most in 30 days settles the question as to which site is smarter.
Obviously suicidal trades will be ignored, but smart, risky trades will be performed and are encouraged.
I will donate 10% of all earnings to a charity of the winner's choice.
I am completely serious and will provide multiple screenshots of account balances, buys, trades, sells, etc.
10k is barely enough to start properly investing.
Answer the following questions.
How old are you?
Do you have an emergency fund?
Do you have any consumer debt?
Do you have student loans
Do you have a job?
Just buying an admiral share of VOO is the easiest and safest long term investment choice.
If you don't have a job, don't have an emergency fund, and/or have debt, then you should just keep that money in a money market account.
Stop giving a fuck about what how intelligent online forums are and do what is best yourself
This is fucking stupid OP and your an idiot for bothering to do it.
Nobody is going to give you good buys with this scam. All you are going to get is idiotically high risk penny stock shit and random guesses.
This is why most of /biz/ is fail at finance and this board sucks ass. Their only solution to investing is putting money in shitcoins. Eventually every one of these NEETs are going to be broke and begging mommy to let them stay an extra year in the basement. "Stay poor nocoiner" is as ironic as it is just plain sad.
Show us your portfolio and how much money you're making you fedora sporting nitwit. I bet the crypto traders on here make you robinhood faggots look like smallfry.
There are swathes of posts by a small group of samefags. Consider "please help me biz", shekeli or whatever his name is, the guy posting charts of stocks with big drops and asking if they're worth buying, all the e-coin shit, etc. Sometimes I wish there was a means to remove anonymity to get rid of these fucks
Buy as much oil as you possibly can. Its current price is only possible by selling it at a loss. It has to go up one way or another, even if we are entering into a recession.
Better yet leveraged oil derivatives.
I missed the 30 day thing familia. If you have a year, you should put it on.
For 30 days - flip stuff from alibaba on amazon. Use JungleScout to estimate sales on existing products, buy the same crap (fly by air straight to amazon fulfillment center), list against their listing on discount, then sell out. You'll likely to double your 5k if you do this right.

I come here because I find your autist NEET humor very amusing, but you all are completely fucking retarded compared to some of the industry professional Reddit contributors on /r/investing. Go there if you want to actually learn how to invest instead of this rat shithole.
Lets compare in 30 days, anything for karma points right b0ss
Since when did everyone get obsesses with Ethereum.
That shit is literally gay as fuck. It was started by a moron they put up as a savant. It has no business purpose, and no growth prospects. Anyone with any perspective in business understand that. Only fools fall for this snake oil.
In regards to the investment, buy 2500 in the S&P, and 2500 in some high grade corporate debt, like Exxon or something with at least an A or AA rating. That will single handedly destroy anybullshit reddit will come up with.
Also, you cant just be comparing Reddit to 4chan's return. You need to compare returns on a risk-adjusted basis (Sharpe Ratios)
Sorry im talking about whats happening in this century not 1800's
And what are your parameters? Are you relying on audits? Are you relying on honesty in reporting? Oh i see you are relying on trust in centralised systems.
See, you dont even know what risk IS.
Ethereum is a scam. Its just a ripoff of Ripple anyway. Fucking kids these days.
Can you even explain WHY ethereum is worth anything? Can you explain WHY ethereum's or whatever they are called witll appreciate in value?
Or are you just investing like a fucking caveman being like "omg sounds like its the future BUY IT NO MATTER WHAT IT MUST GO UP FUUUUU"
>Anyone with any perspective in business understand that. Only fools fall for this snake oil.
For disclosure I'm not Vitaliks biggest fan (threw in ~0.5BTC to make the guy bulk up), but what you wrote is kek-tier. Noone here has any a good perspective on business or a well homed business radar. Ethereum is basically babys first step to learning how to trade, this is its only benefit.
>I don't understand it therefore it's a bad idea
If you know what you're doing, trading shit coins can be very profitable. Mainly because there are so many people that trade them who don't know what they're doing.
This is a stupid idea for many reasons, but namely:
You are asking us to use a buy and hold strategy for a period of time that the strategy would not have time to take effect. For a 30-day window you are just asking us to play a guessing game. You could ask a 5 year old to pick a portfolio and after 30 days it could outperform anything we or Reddit would have chosen.
Change the window to 5 years, then it would make sense.
terrible time to invest.
You can invest in oil, if it hasnt bottomed out yet, its bound to be very close, the only question would how long it would stay there.
Some people would say that the issue is solely due to a glut.
I would say that its that, plus lower demand because of China currently imploding.
>The window is 30 days.
Didnt see that.
Well, short Deutsche Bank :^)
even though im not a shitcoin investor i think investing in it is a good idea since shitcoins arent monopolized in any way and the price is dicated by price/demand so by that your best shot would be using tools that are given to you in your forex trading software

Well if you had said this a week earlier I would have told you to short LNKD.. too late for that now.
If your broker offers it, short tech stocks. However if it increases by more than 2.5% - buy the stock back and cut your losses. Market is too volatile to gamble.
Otherwise buy a low-fees Vanguard index fund and hold it for the next 20 years and you'll easily double / triple your money in that time without any longterm risk.
1) There are a lot of shady, unreliable sellers on Alibaba.
2) Seller ranking and reputation matters more than price. Just because you list your product at a lower price than other competitors doesn't necessarily mean most people would buy from you instead of your competitor.
3) If you have a big inventory of a particular product, you might not be able to flip all of it in thirty days due to the problem mentioned in point two.
I'm also placing some put orders this morning for the fuck of it.
>short Deutsche Bank and Dresdner Bank
>sell EUR/CHF and EUR/USD day-trading, reevaluate your positions daily. The euro will take another hit (especially the german DAX) so this is the logical counter reaction.
>short CS Group N, they will have at least 3-4 strong negative days left and got a really bad last year and quarterly result.
if you have a credit card, sign up with coinbase to set up a bitcoin wallet and buy bitcoin. then deposit it on poloniex, and buy ethereum there. this could take a number of days, more if you don't have a credit card. better act quick I guess. I doubt the explosion will last very much longer (but idk shit about the coin)
Go to a city that has an abundance of both traffic and abandoned parking lots. Spend your money on high tech car boots.
Loan those boots off to people for $200 a night. Those people would take the boots and place them on people's cars while they're away. When the people come back, they'll have no choice but to pay money for the boots to be taken off.
They'd make a profit and you'd make a profit. Spend some of that $5,000 dollars on an "insurance." These would be large, muscular men whose job it is to make sure that no one steals your boots.
If you loan 20 boots per night for the next year, each 200 dollars a loan, you'd make $1,460,000.00 in one year. After expenses (paying for the boots that cost 145.23 each) and paying your two men $500.00 a night, you'd have made a profit of $1,092,095.40.
The most autistic/brilliant thing I've ever read.
It's illegal for a private company to place these things on vehicles. I took a work vehicle home and got booted in my job's plaza complex's parking lot. The fucking idiot booted me on the passenger side and I didn't see it and tried to drive off. I had to take the property management group to court over it.
What did you think I meant?
