You are right, the market is rigged against ignorant and stupid investors/traders. It you are one of those you should get out as soon as possible.
And make sure that you stay out. You don't stand a chance.
It is rigged, rigged, rigged!
Sounds like you have a lot to offer, and opportunity to boot. Keep up your spirit and be thankful for this beautiful life. Sending you good vibes through the interweb.
Well, I will now be working 80+ hours per week to pay the rent, unless I can find dramatically cheaper lodgings, or perhaps move overseas to teach English. I guess I won't have much time to think about my situation which is a good thing.
Most Americans have always been flat broke, living from paycheck to paycheck their entire lives. That was me until recently. I just started to earn more money, which is why I trade stocks now. I do not enjoy it, but it's addictive, like gambling. I am not happier, and my health is getting worse for it.
Blessing in disguise. It will be hard at first, but you will find out you don't need material things at all. All you need is love. It might be the best thing that has happened to you.
Money not only does not buy happiness, it makes us soft gluttons. Hard work is good for the soul. If you are a provider for the family, you have a chance to be emotionally supportive, instead of the unwanted position of provider of material things. Debt is no problem. Ignore your bills. Ignore the stupid credit score. Declare bankruptcy with pride. You don't need to own a house. If your wife leaves you because of money, she was not worthy in the first place. Everything happens for a reason. Worrying about money keeps you from the real things in live because money is an illusion. You can provide food and shelter with govt assistance and minimum wage, and you have so much love, and that is all you and your family needs. Enjoy life more without money.
I puked away 100% of a 600K trading account which was 100% of my net worth. How's that for "unique"?
Made about $1100. But since I chickened out I missed on making $33,000 additional. It was a unique opportunity today.
The only way I see the Market breaking to upside is sentiment is so negative, cash is everywhere, but most importantly, since all the analysts will now lower earnings estimates, IF stocks exceed "expectations," maybe market rallies into year end on the obvious now "New normal" VERY low growth(or worse:) earnings/economy. Bet GDP estimates all go under 2 now. And, that's a stretch with all the "fake money" that's been propping up asset values.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
So you're saying you made $400 or so? Not bad. Schizo made a lot more but he's been at this for a while.
speaking of trolls...were u talking into the mirror again? RoF btw, how are ur...'pipes?'
enjoy ur weekend...and don't 'troll' away the weekend w/ all ur alternate aliases. ;-(OOOO))))
Given that I lost 100% of my trading account (600K) and am now back in the work force living paycheck to paycheck, would you kill yourself in that situation? It's not a rhetorical question.
