So I decided to get into trading at the beginning of this year with a modest amount I could afford to learn with. All was well investing in tech and bio-tech in Jan into Feb and my portfolio was up a few percentage points. Since then its been a complete disaster and my portfolio is down now 20% for the year with some stocks down 50%+ since Feb.
I'm going to stick it out for a while longer but already the learning is that this is not easy at all and I think best left to the experts who can dedicate serious amounts of time to the research as well as play across all the types of investments. Shorts I'm sure have been making a fortune in the last few months with so many stocks down in the tech sector.
I think I can make better use of my time rather than watching stock prices all day - seems to be a mugs game and its the large institutions that always win in the end - individual traders have deck stacked against them
Nasdaq goes down all tech companies go down. Nasdaq recovers same day.
the majority of the stocks stick down.
I think this should be called stuck market not stock market
Headline says stocks rally late unless its retail favorite stocks. Sure the nasdaq came back but only into the bigger players that aren’t the stocks retail investors like. This just shows you the hedge funds are targeting the small investors. Well they can’t have my shares and I’m not transferring my wealth to them.
I can see Nasdaq could go up to 14k and the tech stocks are still down not recover a bit which means if Nasdaq went down again it will bring new low for these tech second stocks. That’s is the bad part.
Due to the low volume i believe crypto is having all the attention now.
Market is a complete joke. Fundamentals, ERs, revenue increases, upgrades, incredible news and so on and none of it matters anymore. If your position does well they are out to tank it.
One thing I noticed over the years the markets love to give back weeks worth of gains in a few hours.
Nasdaq at ATH and most growth tech 40-70% off. Rigged market.
It's very scary when you can't make money in the stocks backed by the production of the American economy, but you can become a millionaire by investing in fake money. This is a 3 month onslaught now of my portfolio.
So your telling me companies that produce numbers, real facts, real growth, real value aren't valued anything anymore because crypto is the only thing that anyone wants to put money into anymore. how is a share of a company with far less float in circulation and tied to a much better purpose for the world not considered its own form of asset. how do people prefer a doge coin instead of a share of the nasdaq
Some hedge funds controlling Nasdaq index
I still haven't recovered nearly 25% of what i lost the last time this type of route happened. Where will we stop this time? Since February, I'm losing everything I gained in 2 years
Another red day for tech. We have reached a sad state when fake money coins are more attractive than technology stocks. The good news is that we have alternative places to put our money. All retail traders need to seriously consider leaving the stock market for probably the rest of this year. I think stocks are going to be slow all year.
Today, your money is in the same place as it was on January 21st. Three and a half months = no gains.
if solid earnings can't move this market, then I am not sure we will see much from the markets for several months. Could be a long hot summer.
Nasdaq +0,36, our portfolio -3%
Told you guys, when crypto feels safer haven than stocks it’s time to exit this market
Remember when the NASDAQ was a 14,000+......YESTERDAY?!
Suddenly, the Fraud St Kykem decided that NASDAQ was overvalued.....so much for the "efficient markets" theory.
I keep reading about the market over heating and indexes peaking, concerns about inflation etc... I think its completely wrong. My portfolio is down 16% for the year with 1/3 of stocks down 40%+ since Feb. Tech and Biotech is a long long way from over heating. Maybe some truth in other sectors but not in tech and biotech.
Janet Yellen is no more than a paid pumper. On Tuesday she said the economy was getting overheated. The jobs report today says a different story. The unemployment rate was up to 6.1%. The only jobs added were in the hospitality sector, that's because of restaurants and other things opening up. There were many other jobs lost in other sectors. This jobs report was terrible actually. The administration should be embarrassed about this report. We are going to be at double digit unemployment very soon at this rate. That means the fed will have to step in and the possibility of more QE is coming. Bad news for our country, but could be good news for tech stocks. Good luck to all.
Fed oughta be ashamed of itself. Pumps all this stimulus into the economy, and people are jumping ship off funds that hold people's retirement and life savings to invest in fake currency that is completely unregulated.
