short term is not smart trading. It has been proven for individuals, that other than program trading that if you find an investment and stick with it for the long term, your earnings have a 90% chance of being greater than a day trader.
Let's see I'm retired, in my 40's doing my own trading. The Firm I left on my own, went public in early 90's at $6 a share and currently trades at $165/share. I got options annually, with up front ,upon going public ,3x my pay (I was a sr. executive earning decent 6 figure range back then). Many of those I worked with subsequently became high ranking government officials....Let's see can you figure it out? Oh and my Firm is one that everyone wants to work for........ If you can't get it by now, you really are lost. Past year alone I took my family and extended family (to most) Belize, Jamaica, Mexico, London, Ireland, Hawaii and within the continental USA. I have kids in school so that limits my travel as we don't hire nannys..... I am on the board a few not for profits and do philanthropic activity to bide my time.... I have few losses and trade for fun. Most positions are hedged with some actually true longs which I donate any positions that double direct to charity. why not?
Now that was the stupidest reply EVER! Options are easy money especially straddles, covered calls. You can lock in guaranteed gains, hedge losses, minimize all risks and have synthetic positions for a lot less money so your upside is huge as you have the upside of more shares with hedged losses.... You definitely need Trading101 classes. For every 100 shares you own or short, I can for the same money have multiples of what you have..... take a lesson and get off this board PLEASE!
I mean 95% of holders not of individual shares.... that includes joe shmoe who owns a whopping 1-3 shares.
a fool and his money....
nope any fools who buy/sell and don't play options and didn't sell between yesterday and today will feel pain. If you seriously think a few dollars is in the money, then you have very serious issues.
it's going to hurt even more tomorrow.
may be painful but the market does not appear to support these levels as there is too much doubt on fwd earnings growth.
seriously do people utilize basics in trading these days are do they all rely on Cramer and friends....?Both options and open orders have this trading under $60 and I will bet mid 50's today. No I don't short stocks, I only use covered trades as fools and their money are so easily parted.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
wow you are rich with your $4 but open wide possible losses! Are your seriously advertising yourself as that stupid? Have you heard of options?
seriously do you need a conference call to know subscibers dropped... it's been in the news. The only thing that went up are advertisers which will be VERY SHORT LIVED. Seriously have you been on FB lately and if you have, how many people post now vs. 2 years ago? Not many. You will learn soon enough. Don't say you weren't warned. I don't short but I do cover my options bets and make some serious money. Only fools buy and sell these days actual shares.
when users are dropping and clicks are dropping, ad rates get cut and big firms change strategy. Twitter actually has more clicks per ad than FB and at a seriusly lower cost. FB is dieing. Zuckerburg only started to go public when subscriber rates and posts started falling.... He's no dummy.
nope not at all I just know that ads have not been succesful at some very large fortune 500's
advertisers are already cutting FB ad as the users are dropping and not amounting to new business.....
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Big buys will be there tomorrow or after markets. So ridiculous the new taxes and how they change investment strategies.
They were on Amazon for 499 and Microsoft website and was at the mall yesterday and still in the Microsoft store. I didn't shop anywhere else so YOU ARE WRONG!!!!! By the way I'm no short.
Seriously Freehold, NJ has them in stock... no doubt about it. Plus extreme discounts on some games. Got Grand Theft Auto 5 for $20 as they have a daily special.....
