Time to get short, again.
Great five day Chart:
you are doing things right. Don't let people talk you out of learning. If you want to lower your commission costs try Zecco. with 2500.00 you get 10 free trades a month. Or Shrebuilder at $4.00 per buy and 15.00 per sell. Buyandhold also has low commissions.
I would say start small. It is a lot easier to take a $100 loss than a $1000 or a $10000 loss. A little money in the game no matter how small will give you a better education than any amount of book learning.
The one place you are wrong is that the market is gambling. The more you study and the more you learn the less luck that is involved but no matter how much you study or how long you invest for there will always be some gambling to the market. The street calls this "risk" but it is the same as gambling in that regard. Always keep that in mind. That's why when the market is acting funny people "pull risk off the table" or "book profits". It is the same as football betting if you know the point spread is too much your less likely to bet.
Other than that your doing great; better than 85% of the population that has no idea what it takes to really make money.
Something like ATVI maybe? It would be hard to come up with a bearish case for them going out 1 yr in the future. What about int'l infrastructure, or water treatment stocks? Those are also hard to bet against for anything longer than a 3-6 month timeframe. Why would you want to be bearish on everything???
LOL, I take it you still haven't found it so I'll give it to you:
P.S. Yep, I didn't log back in after entering the "Lifetime 50K sweepstakes". Didn't even notice till you pointed it out lol. I don't like to enter with my main info because then you get a bunch of spam mail. Hey, there's an idea, you can enter it too then you can go long some stocks. Here's the addy:
I'll be entering the HGTV sweepstakes next month too.;-)
Who are you pointofview? Owwww you are flyer alias #3? I guess you forgot to log off?
I guess you are not to bright either? I guess I am going to go through all of your alias spam and guess you are great at picking stocks.
Again, thank you and you alias for the laughs.
BTW Abita, How many short stocks are you saying you are in right now? Are they all "Short shares" of or "short puts"? You don't seem to be too optimistic. Are you shorting the dollar as well? You must be long "something" other than a bearish play?... I don't see how you can't find "something" to invest in on the long side...
You aren't too bright are you? I said 26 buy rec's & tgt prices "in one post" so I'm not talking about having to go back through "all" my posts. If you had half a brain you'd figure out how to use the search feature and enter a few key words to find it relatively quickly. Evidently you realize you'd find that I'm telling the truth and don't want to see it. Go back to your groupies (half of them look back at you in the mirror when you talk to yourself). Merry Christmas...
P.S. I posted that I was taking you "off" ignore a few wks ago so that I could see if you started posting again "with the stock higher". It took a while but amazingly enough you "did return". Now I have again "posted" that I'm preparing to use the ole ignore. Enjoy life and the "groupies" (OMG that's funny); you're a celeberty in your own mind...
Sure... that is right I am on ignore. You say that every time you reply to me making fun of you.
I am sure I am going to scroll thru your spamming and guess that you are up.
Pretend you are smart and pretend I am on ignore. Thanks for the laughs.
