Superstitions and Stocks - Ever see a "sign" that tells you to buy or sell?

Reddit Stocks

15/09/2021 - 05:20

I was looking at the post about (TA) Technical Analysis and whether or not it's just basically Financial Astrology, and that made me think of something else. Superstitions and Stocks. I will give a quick example. So, about a month ago or so, can't remember the exact timing, I was considering buying one of the beaten down Chinese stocks like BABA, JD and PDD. But wasn't sure what to buy. Also, wasn't sure if I wanted to take the risk on a Chinese stock with all the daily CCP drama. Then, on my way to work I was nearly cut off by a giant big rig, and guess what was on the side of the big rig? A big JD logo. Now, I'm in the USA, and it wasn't the "actual" JD company logo, but it was a giant big rig with the name JD on it, HUGE, right when I was literally thinking in my head whether I should take a chance on JD or not. So, ended up buying JD that same morning, and a few days later I basically made like 8 or 9 percent on that play and it was pretty profitable, so that JD truck can run me off the road anytime, lol... Here's another example... I was eating some left overs at work from a plastic tray that I got from the restaurant the night before. As I was almost done eating, I noticed an interesting logo on the bottom of the tray. It just had a cool design. As I was about to throw it away, I took a quick look at it, and it said "Clover". Then, I go back to work, and I'm working on something, and the client lived on "Clover lane". Well, guess who did a CLOV daytrade that day and also made a nice profit! By the way, I'm not saying superstitions are real or anything, these were along the lines of more interesting coincidences and synchronicities that seem weird, but are likely just something that we latch onto subconsciously   submitted by   /u/Anth916 [link]   [comments]

  1. The first people are starting to sell out.. (19/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Im sorry for your loss but to me it's the sign of early buy-in stages. You've all heard the phrase from Rothschild: ""Buy when there's blood in the streets, even if the blood is your own" I believe that the bond yield will go up in the next 1-2 months and Nasdaq will get hit hard. When we see more of these "I sold it all", "i'm out", "Stocks is a losing game" you know it's time to buy in. No one can predict the bottom so be ready for some red days "even if the blood is your own", keep faith in your investment and you most likely will be fine in the longterm. TLDR: I'm ready to buy heavily in the next couple of months.   submitted by   /u/ruffneck007 [link]   [comments]

  2. The market is bound to bounce back. (22/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Don't sell off any of your stocks and like everyone is saying if you can afford to, buy the dips! The next green day (for you new guys like me supposedly that means on days we actually get to see profits or so the stories claim) you'll be glad you loaded up on more stocks. If you're scared and sell you'll be sorry you did and you'll but high again and the next red day you see you'll sell low again at will stay in a cycle losing money. Remember! "The stock market is a device for transferring money from the impatient to the patient"? -Buffet "Time in the market beats timing the market" "Scared money doesn't make money" "Buy low sell high" "You haven't lost anything if you don't sell" "HODL" Find a new hobby and stop looking at your portfolio's unless you need to sell to buy something else or because your need money. If you're not gonna buy or sell why even look at it? Go for a run, walk, build a model car, binge watch a new show, get a side hustle so you have more money to buy more stocks. Wish you all the best.   submitted by   /u/ragstorichespodcast [link]   [comments]

  3. What would happen if you traded only using brokers' TA "Buy or Sell" indicators? (13/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I have never used a TA indicator to make a decision, be it my own broker's or Morningstar's or TradingView's. For those who don't know what I'm talking about, this is it. My own common sense tells me that if these tools were accurate, at lot of people would be a lot richer than they are right now. What if you set up a paper trade where you bought stock only based on one of these tools? Buy the stock when Tradingview's needle says buy, diligently sell when it says sell. Do the same for all the other sites. Something tells me the answer is "you'd lose a ton of money, those indicators are only meant to aide your decision, not rely 100% on them!" and that's probably right. At the same time, I already consider them worthless so it'd be fun to do a little experiment. What are your thoughts?   submitted by   /u/Artyloo [link]   [comments]

  4. "Time In The Market" vs. "Its OK to take profits" (14/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Obviously these popular contradictory statements are thrown around quite a lot. I've been investing in some blue chip stocks like AAPL that seem to go nowhere. I bought Apple at 125.00 last August and in hindsight it seems like it would have been to good to sell it on Jan 25 @ 145.00, but I've been subscribing to the mindsight of "time in the market" trumps "timing the market". SO how do you guys know when to sell and whether it makes sense to just hold and look at it in 5 years? PS. I've also heard people talk about selling before earnings and buying the dip. Haven't tried this but is this a good practice?   submitted by   /u/bchen270 [link]   [comments]

  5. The impending crash..... (12/09/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Most people have between 10-30% of their portfolio in "dead money" stocks. These were purchased for lots of bad reasons and were shifted from a "trade" to and "investment" because "we" were unable to admit we were wrong, and take the loss early. Cutting losses early is one way to remain solvent in the investing game. Last week I sold all of those stocks and a trimmed few others. It hurts, but it had to be done. I'll hold those proceeds as cash in anticipation of a small 5-10% correction between now and the middle of October. Then I'll redeploy that money into quality companies that will actually rise. No one ever tells you of this strategy because they don't want to admit they were EVER wrong. There aren't many geniuses out there so let's get honest and made the hard decisions. Dump every loser and shift the proceeds to cash for at least a month. Watch and see what happens. "Cash is a position."   submitted by   /u/TontineTrader [link]   [comments]

  6. Healthcare / Biotech stocks (15/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    What's going on with medical/healthcare stocks? I was just scrolling through "top losers" (biggest stock losses on the last trading day, so Friday in this case) on Wealthsimple and 90% of the companies are "biotech", "pharma", "therapeutics", "labs", "oncology". And they're all down by a significant amount (8%-30%). Any reason why? Should I look at buying the dip? To add to the mystery, some similar companies are skyrocketing (Seelos therapeutics is up over 50%), and a couple others are up like 15%. I'm pretty new to stocks so any insight, advice, suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated.   submitted by   /u/Shadow15_2 [link]   [comments]

  8. Peter Lynch's 10 mistakes every investor makes (08/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    "It can't go any lower." Never make such an assumption. A bad company can and will go lower. "How much higher can it go?" Selling too early just because a stock goes up. "They always come back" Don't assume a stock price will rebound, look at the fundamentals not the price. "How much can I lose?" A cheap stock price doesn't = a good value. You can lose % at any price. "It's always darkest before dawn." It's a terrible business but it's down 80%! Buy at a discount? no, it still has room to drop. "I will sell after rebound" Buy at $10, it falls to $6, and you think "If it goes back to $10 I'll sell. Well if you think that you should buy more! A key to remember, the stock doesn't know you own it. It may never get to $10 again as well. Don't take it personal. Make decisions based on fundamentals. "Don't worry, I own conservative stocks" (utilities...) "Look at the money I lost because I didn't buy" FOMO? Hundreds of stocks go up double digits. Don't worry about other stocks. Focus on ones you know. You can't lose money on a stock you don't own. "Stock is up I must be right / Stock is down I must be wrong." Stocks go up and down a lot each year. The ups and downs don't mean much in the short term. Avoid longshots. Investing based on rumors, comments, anything other than sound financial analysis and valuation. Peter Lynch worked at Fidelity and is has great wisdom.   submitted by   /u/LegendLarrynumero1 [link]   [comments]

Was just chatting with a Webull Rep... Now from what he just told me... It is my understanding that within the Webull App/Desktop... I can only "Sell" at 3,000,000 TOPS!!!!! The Rep says that "Our current notional amount is 3,000,000"... Also says..."These orders exceeded limits and will not be accepted. The order needs to be within a reasonable range of the NBBO. It is at the discretion of the executing broker whether they want to accept or reject an order so far away from the market. Limit is currently 500% through NBBO."   submitted by   /u/Disastrous_Ad_1431 [link]   [comments]

  11. Rating Zacks Rating (08/09/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I have a sheet that gathers a lot of data about all the stocks Im interested in so I have one place to compare and review them (as well as track my investing history). One of the sites it pulls data from is Zack's Ratings. But the more I invest the more I find that I'm going against Zack's Ratings. In fact, I own more stocks in their "Sell" list than I do their "Strong Buy list". So I wanted to measure their performance. I had all of the stocks I tracked broken into their 5 categories: Strong Buy, Buy, Hold, Sell, Strong Sell. I simulated buying $100 of every stock based on the closing price on Friday (9/3/2021). And the sheet will track the performance of the different "portfolios". https://www.screencast.com/t/cE9T6z9Ct So far only one day of day. It's certainly too early to tell. But it's a good time to make your picks (for those interested). Is Zack's "Strong Buy" recommendation mroe likely to lead to better short term investments?   submitted by   /u/DerekPaxton [link]   [comments]

These are some of the subreddits I have gathered so far, where the key (the ticker name on the left side of the colon) represents the ticker symbol, while the value (the elements inside [ ] on the right side of the colon ) represents the subreddits.

Under where it says "$16,478", it says "sell: 8,002" and "cost: $222,443,099". That implies a price of $27,798 (I assumed it would calculate out to a price of $16,478).

  15. Is there a way to legally temporarily "sell" a stock with a positive return, in such a way that you can't use the income, and not pay taxes on that "income"? (07/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I own a couple stocks which I believe are going to tank relatively badly pretty soon. My return is presently positive. I'd like to sell right now, and reinvest after it tanks, if it does. But the problem is, I'm not confident that it's going to tank as badly as the short term capital gains taxes I'd pay (my returns have been like 80% on one of them) In other words, Im going to lose roughly 30% in taxes if I sell. I don't believe that it's going to tank badly enough for me to lose as much as I will if I sell. So, what finally, what I'm wondering is if there's some sort of system I can use to pull the money out of the stocks, but not he able to use it, and not pay taxes on it. Obviously it has to be legal. I assume there's nothing like this, but I thought I'd ask. Thanks   submitted by   /u/IIonlyFans_womonII [link]   [comments]

    https://www.screencast.com/t/ogxplzJI9d I started a post a week ago to rate Zack's Rating (https://www.reddit.com/r/stocks/comments/pk1tbd/rating_zacks_rating/).

The only "portfolio" that made money was if you had invested in all Zack's lowest "5- Strong Sell" rating. The worst performing portfolio was Zack's highest rating, "1- Strong Buy". 1- Strong Buy -2.77% 2- Buy -0.95% 3- Hold -1.28% 4- Sell -2.48% 5- Strong Sell +1.98%   submitted by   /u/DerekPaxton [link]   [comments]

  17. Starting to build short positions. What do you think will drop? (23/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I think leverage is actually low when taken as a percentage of marketcap. But, the market has reached some kind of "stocks can't go down" mentality. Shoeshine boys are all over Youtube. Yet, people are talking crash talk all the time, which tells me there is a lot of upside yet. It's a fool's errand to call market tops. No one knows. I don't think market will crash. But, I would like to open some short positions. Scale in with reverse DCA. Like short 1/3 at 100, short 1/3 at 150, short 1/3 at 200, for example. What stocks do you feel have the most to fall ? This is tricky because it's not as simple as "the one that went up the most". Doesn't work like that. Sometimes, those are considered safe havens and drop the least.   submitted by   /u/CortexExport [link]   [comments]

  18. Can we institute an IQ test before posting in this sub? (06/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I am so sick and tired of reading all of these moronic posts by people with the emotional intelligence of the average third-grader. "Is the market crashing?," "Should I sell this meme stock for $400/share less than I bought it?," It's like being surrendered by a bunch of mentally r****** parrots (I got auto-modded for using the ole r-word. Apparently, that's evil these days). "Why did the market fall 0.000001% today?," "What's the best undervalued stock right now that's going to quadruple in value within the next 3 days?" And then there's the equally mentally-stunted advice givers. "This stock ran up three thousand percent in 2 days and now it's down 10 cents - Buy. The. Dip." Or if the market falls immediately someone has to come and reassure us that's it's gonna go back up and "red days are healthy." No shit, Sherlock. Or the oft repeated "Time in the market is better than timing the market." No, it's not if they're buying shit stocks. These idiots are buying meme stocks at ATH's and then get confused why they're loosing money once the pump is over. Shut the fuck up already. Jesus. Grow some balls or get out of the market. And a read book instead of trying to syphon knowledge out of other idiots that are all just regurgitating the same empty platitudes. Rant over.

  19. Why don't most people report April? (04/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    title says is. If they know that april is the best month for stocks, between April and May, why don't a lot of companies pile into April and ride the wave? That way, they don't announce earnings when it's crappy like the beginning of May? I feel like all these companies are getting unfairly hit because "April" is the month to buy and "May" is the month to sell.

  21. Help understanding/setting up "trailing stop loss $" for profit protection (21/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hi all, first off thank you very much in advance for your help. ​ No options/margin; just pure stock cash account situation. Here's what I want to accomplish... Say there's a stock that I want to buy which is trading at $100 and I want to sell that stock when I have at least 3% profit (sell @$103). Also I have zero concern about protecting my investment and so do NOT want to use stop loss for loss protection (i.e. I am willing to wait until the end of time for the stock to return to $100+ if it goes down before it hits $103) I could put in a limit order at $103 and call it done. If/when it ever hits $103 it would trigger my limit order and sell and I could take my 3%. However, I also believe that there's a decent enough chance that the stock may continue upward once it hits $103 and so I don't want to cash out early if it's headed up. At the same time I want to cash out if it begins to go down once it's hit $103. I'm using e*Trade and what I think I want ("trailing stop loss %") doesn't exist. The closest they have is through their power e*Trade platform and is called "trailing stop loss $". When that order type is picked there are 2 values that are required; a "trailing amount" and a "limit offset". Searching their help documentation got me nowhere. The "trailing amount" is whatever the $ amount is to trail by (ok, got it). The "limit offset" has me confused as I've no idea what to set it to for what I'm trying to do because whatever I set it to (be that $1 or $10000) it makes no difference in the calculated estimated amount I would receive. So in my bought @$100 and selling @$103 to take 3% profit example think I'm supposed to set it up as sell order="trailing stop loss $" with "limit offset"=$103 and lets say I want to protect at least $2 of my $3 of profit so I set "trailing amount"=$1. But then the word "offset" throws me because what's value is it offsetting from? Zero? Again, if anyone knows and understands how this works and if I can accomplish what I want to do your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks again.   submitted by   /u/NorjackNC [link]   [comments]

  22. How to tell if you "know" a company well enough to invest in it? (30/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    A recommendation I find very often is that you should "know what you own" or "invest in your circle of competence." How much should you know about a company to be at the point where you are really "investing" and not merely speculating? It is not really possible to know the ins and outs of all the types of businesses out there, so I don't know how people usually go about due diligence without limiting themselves to a few select industries they may be able to intuitively understand.   submitted by   /u/jmus9 [link]   [comments]

  24. Understanding Sectors And Individual Stocks (13/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I'm trying to get a better understanding of how sectors affect individual stocks. For instance, I have a number of biotechs. When XBI goes down, most of them seem to go down. And vice versa. My question is why does the whole sector (or sectors in general) often seem to move in unison? Is there just a "memo" that goes out somedays that says "pharma's bad, sell it all" and all the companies go down? Also, how much should I be thinking of sectors when buying individual stocks? I think I have some good picks, but does it matter much how good an individual company is if the sector as a whole determines much more of the variance?   submitted by   /u/HonestlyDontKnow24 [link]   [comments]

    For a long time LVMUY was doing relatively decent to ok-ish. Last 6 months it's been up 8.7%, but in the last 2 days strictly off a China speech talking about "less spending for the rich" (similar to themes here we hear constantly), the stock fell 6% today and 7% yesterday. Was especially annoyed bc when it fell 7% on Wednesday absolutely ZERO news sources covered the reasons why, and everything decided to write about it today instead catching me by surprise. I am down now about 10% on the stock, and wondering what people think we should do about it? I hate to sell on a "Sell low" but I've seen this year MANY stocks just continue and continue a downward trend and the next thing you know I've held it for an extra month and all it's done is go down another 8% points.   submitted by   /u/BurnerBurnerBurns20 [link]   [comments]

  29. Consider yourself an INVESTOR? Imagine the "sell" button doesn't exist for 5 years. (30/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    If you want to swing trade, try to cash out on short squeezes, whatever, then fine: You do you. Otherwise, if you actually want to invest, then let me give you a trick to help you approach the market correctly... Imagine that the "sell" button is greyed out until a security is held for 5 years. You'll be holding this for 5+ years, so the time and effort spent on research and DD is fully justified. You won't be "missing out" if you buy it tomorrow, or next week, or whenever you fully understand it and feel ready to commit. It's worth the commitment, so it's completely reasonable to increase your position gradually over time (DCA). Market dips are lame, but who cares? It's not the 5d chart, it's the 5y -- and it's a 5y chart that has yet to be drawn. There are only three situations in which the "sell" button becomes available. During your research, you find something that makes you lose faith in the security (e.g., you discover something that makes you doubt the company's leadership during an earnings report). You discover a competing security that you wish you would have known about previously. In this case, roll your investment over. You absolutely, positively need the money for an emergency. You should have enough money on hand to be able to weather a storm, but there are some extraneous circumstances where you absolutely must liquidate investments. (If this happens more than once, it's a sign that you do not have a sufficient emergency fund.)   submitted by   /u/InitializedVariable [link]   [comments]

  30. Reddit Bubble? (19/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Something I'm wondering about. I don't mean bubble necessarily in a "this will crash" kinda way (although I also might too). But I noticed, with the "dip" this week, that SPY and Total Market isn't down nearly as much as many redditors. I know a lot of that is because many of us got in in February (near a lot of ATHs) which, of course, is a risky thing to do. But I also know that there are a number of sectors and stocks reddit likes (and not even just WSB meme stocks, but other more "respectable" picks) that align much more with reddit demographics (young, liberal) than say most of America/investors. So I wonder if we're in our own kind of mini-bubble and what the impacts of that might be as we keep getting larger.   submitted by   /u/HonestlyDontKnow24 [link]   [comments]

  31. Key Words: Trump could make GOP stronger, or ‘he also could destroy it,’ Graham says (08/03/2021 - Market Watch)
    In an interview broadcast Sunday night on "Axios on HBO," the South Carolina Republican -- who has continued to support Trump, even after blaming him for the Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol by a pro-Trump mob -- said the former president has a "dark side" and "some magic," and he's trying to "harness the magic."

  32. Screener for finding emerging stocks on social media about to blow up with rising social sentiment (09/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hi guys I saw a screener last week and I made some modifications so it found general high potential stocks. It finds emerging stocks on social media (i.e. more mentions than usual) with rising sentiment: import requests import sentipy from sentipy.sentipy import Sentipy token = "<your app token>" key = "<your api key>" sentipy = Sentipy(token=token, key=key) metric = "RHI" limit = 96 # can be up to 96 sortData = sentipy.sort(metric, limit) trendingTickers = sortData.sort stock_list = [] for stock in trendingTickers: yf_json = requests.get(" https://query2.finance.yahoo.com/v10/finance/quoteSummary/{}?modules=summaryDetail%2CdefaultKeyStatistics%2Cprice".format(stock.ticker)).json() stock_cap = 0 try: volume = yf_json["quoteSummary"]["result"][0]["summaryDetail"]["volume"]["raw"] stock_cap = int(yf_json["quoteSummary"]["result"][0]["defaultKeyStatistics"]["enterpriseValue"]["raw"]) exchange = yf_json["quoteSummary"]["result"][0]["price"]["exchangeName"] if stock.SGP > 1.3 and stock_cap > 200000000 and volume > 500000 and exchange == "NasdaqGS" or exchange == "NYSE": stock_list.append(stock.ticker) except: pass print(stock_list) The results are: ['F', 'VAL', 'LMND', 'VALE', 'BX', 'BFLY', 'NRZ', 'ZIM', 'PG', 'UA', 'DOW', 'ACIC', 'NEE', 'NVTA', 'WPG', 'NLY', 'FVRR', 'UMC', 'SNE', 'SE', 'OSK', 'HON', 'SU', 'CHWY', 'AR', 'UI'] Please let me know what you guys think! :)   submitted by   /u/Over-Regular4856 [link]   [comments]

  33. Could anyone explain how shorting works? (30/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I did something pretty risky and sorted ATVI last week as soon as I heard the news about the lawsuit they were facing. I selected "buy to open" and set the date to 06AUG. I then "sold to close" yesterday. I'm confused on a few things. Why was my position two days ago showing $18k with the stock at about $84, but I was able to sell it for just over $20k when that stock was at $87? Further, what is the difference between a short "buy to open" and "buy to close"? Similarly, how does this change when selling to open and close? Lastly, what does selecting the date do exactly? Is it setting the date for when your position will be closed? Does it affect your commission payments the farther out you set it?   submitted by   /u/babsa90 [link]   [comments]

I just want a little protection just in case, I dont want it too sell too fast since I am trying to make this a long term investment.

  39. Give me a good reason why I shouldn't sell my "diversified" portfolio and go all AAPL. (17/08/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I'm sort of fed up with my investing approach with my main (taxable) investment account. I thought I had set up a nice diversified set of stocks, maybe a bit new tech heavy but still fairly balanced. But it has been performing like crap - mostly flat over the past 6-9 months, and I can't say that I've even outperformed the broader market over the past few years. One or two stocks will surge for a little while, I'm tempted to sell them but then remind myself to not try to "time" the waves. And then they fall and continue mostly in the same range. Meanwhile, my largest chunk in that portfolio - AAPL - has done pretty well, and I haven't touched it in years. I like the stability, I believe in the company, and it is literally a cash cow. So why not just get rid of this diversified nonsense, which seems to only cause me stress and provide no stable run, and put it all into AAPL?   submitted by   /u/dreamsforsale [link]   [comments]

  40. Tax (01/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hello, and thanks for your help on this. I have found that "capital gains" are particularly pillaged by the state. Especially for "short term" (how dare we even consider it) gains. I'm trying to find out if it makes sense to even try to get my feet off the ground with my measly 3k saved up. Lets say I get lucky in Robinhood and 10x my 3k (not going to happen I know). Then I take that 30k and move it to a new stock and lose it all (yes, much more likely). Am I still on the hook for taxes on those "gains"? Please forgo the "you should be investing long term", I get it....Thanks again!   submitted by   /u/Omega_Pulse [link]   [comments]

  42. AMC calls (15/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I want to buy some AMC calls tomorrow. I'm thinkin march 26th $13 probably 2 or 3 contracts. I'm optimistic it will hit beyond 13 next 2 weeks. I am a newbie when it comes to options, this would be me getting my feet wet. I'm not seeking financial advice but just a friendly "your a moron" or "sounds reasonable" I also have a question. If and when these calls go itm what do I do? Just sell them? I'm assuming it'll be obvious on fidelity but I just don't want any surprises when I don't need them. Thanks in advance, I know these questions make me seem retarded but I literally know zero people into stocks in my real life and I've watched videos and understand what's happening here but just a but timid.   submitted by   /u/Army-Jazzlike [link]   [comments]

  44. Some Useful Stock Alerts I Use (18/09/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    One thing I've done over the past year and a half was try to teach myself some tools of technical analysis so I could better avoid getting my knees chopped off as happened in February-March of 2020. I started using Stockcharts.com, which is an outstanding platform that also puts out some great videos every week (the best being The Final Bar with David Keller). One thing I've enjoyed is being able to set alerts for the stock I both own and follow. Here are some of the alerts I've been using in case this is helpful to anyone. These are easy to implement using the Stockcharts alert/scan engine. First, Stochastics hitting 80% after being above, or 20% after being below, tells me when a stock or ETF is "letting off the gas" and will stop going up, or has started "hitting the gas" and might start to up. This is usually the first heads up that I should pay attention to something as I hate kicking myself later for not catching when things start a move. MACD crossovers for all the stocks I follow is also helpful. Basically I get one email alert per day and can mark which are start to dip, or rise. Obviously, moving average crossovers are good to get notifications for. Having alerts that tell me when a stock's SCTR rating (a comparison of how that stock is doing to all other stocks) 25, 50 or 75 in a bullish manner (hitting from below) or bearish (hitting from above, due to the stock falling) helps me from missing stuff returning to an uptrend after taking a break. I'm also testing a trend-following system by Authur Hill that uses Stochastics on a 125 day period, as a final system to tell me when I should or should not be in stocks. Any stock that hits 40 is a "sell" and 60 is a "buy," which I just use as another piece of information so I don't miss stuff. This system isn't perfect since I get a ton of alerts right when the market opens (which is 10:30 pm for me as I'm in Japan), but it's a nice way to get an impression of what's moving and why. Hope this is helpful to anyone. What have you learned or improved on during the pandemic?   submitted by   /u/peterinjapan [link]   [comments]

  45. Do you think the term, "short squeeze" will be overused and/or actively called out, all the time, on other stocks much much more now? (28/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I'm imagining it happen like the infamous and recent, "Josh fight" and how now that it's over, everyone and their deranged uncle Jeff is trying to replicate it. I think the term, and just the overall situation in general regarding a short squeeze, will be overused and/or called out much more frequently from now on. As those that missed out are desperate for another one or those that just think it will happen again and just don't understand how rare of circumstances they are, I think we will be seeing a lot of posts about, "potential squeeze this" and "potential squeeze that" in the next coming weeks/months.   submitted by   /u/Tickle-Me-Raw [link]   [comments]

  46. This reddit is supposed to be for "stocks" ?? (21/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    For a reddit group that is supposed to be "stocks" you guys block about half of the available stock markets discussions and abilities on here. No S P A C's are allowed, which also includes units and warrants, not to mention any s p a c mergers. Not being allowed to mention anything from the O T C market, prevents a huge sector of companies from being talked about, like Volkswagen for one...yeah, there are a lot of Penny s t o c k companies, but almost all of your European and other foreign markets are traded on that market. You might as well change the name of this reddit to "NYSE" only, or "NASDAQ" only...because there are a LOT more "stock offerings and options in other markets that you restrict us from posting about. HELL, EVEN THE MENTION OF ANY OF THESE KEY WORDS AUTOMATICALLY REMOVES A POST, REGARDLESS OF THE CONTEXT...AND I THOUGHT FACEBOOK AND GOOGLE WERE TOO MUCH OF A DICTATORSHIP...WOW!!!   submitted by   /u/gnrlee01 [link]   [comments]

  47. Taking profits and putting it into an ETF or not (11/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hi guys, kind of new to this (started january 2020). When i started, i "went in" thinking i will only invest in things to "hold forever" or atleast 5+ years (big, well known, companies that I understand/use). Now, i know it's full of posts like "should i sell/should i buy, sell all now, it's crashing" etc. I would like to ask for your opinion about something that's stuck on mind for a couple of days now. I wanted to diversify my portfolio for a long time now (too much on tech, ofc), and recently i started buying into CSPX, so i get more diversification (equivalent tracker of s&p500 VOO, as i'm in EU and can't buy VOO). Now, what i have in my mind right now, seeing as everything in tech is "slowly dying", would it be wise to sell only the ones that i have profit on (taking out ONLY the profit) and put all of that into CSPX (DCA-ing over a couple of days/weeks), or should i just hold everything for the long time. These are the positions i have and the % of profits on them. GOOGL 30%, AMZN 6%, AAPL 14%, BO 13%, MA 14%, MSFT 5%, NVDA 18%, TSLA 14%, V 7%. The only ones that are in red atm are NEE and DIS but not by much (<5%), but i don't worry about them at all, long term. So what's your opinion on that. Would it be wise to only sell and take the profits out of those, and put that into CSPX (thinking that it will do better overall during this "tech sellof"), sell only some of them, try buying the dip on some of these big names (some prices look really good now imo), or just try to put some new money into CSPX and don't touch the rest ? I'm just looking at some points of views, as i'm new to this and i'm sure there are a lot of more experienced people here. Also, something off-topic, also being on my mind lately as i tried to think why is this selloff happening. Do you think it has anything to do with all the "coins" hype atm ? People selling their positions to try to chase the hype train over there ? Idk, i'm not into that (too much volatility). Was just a thought. Thanks for reading it all :) Have a good day everyone !   submitted by   /u/Drragos [link]   [comments]

  48. For those unaware: A loss in share value doesn't mean that someone else "got your money." It just simply "disappears." (13/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    It may seem like a "no brainer" to most people but stocks don't work this way. A move 5% higher might have happened over 100,000 share volume and 4 weeks of time. The following move 5% lower can happen with 10,000 share volume over 2 days time. This would mean there are 90,000 shares out there with an "unrealized loss" that has "disappeared" from their owner's portfolio after purchasing in the last 4 weeks prior. It is a common perception that "everyone selling" is the issue when a stock goes down. Sometimes it is just the fact that there are no buyers. Sellers undercut each other to get to the limited bidders price that they are willing to offering. It doesn't always take twice as many sellers to move the price down. Simply having half the buyers will do this on its own. Additional sellers are not necessarily driving the market down right now there is just a lot of hesitation to buy.   submitted by   /u/GMEgotmehere [link]   [comments]

  49. Why, exactly, are stocks valuable? (27/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I'm deeply confused as to why stocks are valuable and I seem to have difficulty explaining my confusion, so I'd like to give an example. Storytime: I, big kid on the cul-de-sac, decide to open a lemonade stand and I begin to turn a profit. Some neighborhood kids want in so I take some "magic" rocks and sell them to neighborhood kids at $1 per rock (lets call these kids Group 1 and say these rocks can't be counterfeited or something). I tell them that each magic rock represents just a tiny bit of ownership in my lemonade stand, and that there won't be any more magic rocks in the future. Business get even better- I keep raising the prices and people continue to wait in line for my lemonade. The company puts the money in the bank account to save up for a future lemonade stand. Other kids who don't have any magic rocks (let's cleverly call them Group 2), fear they're missing out and want buy magic rocks from the Group 1, who now refuse to sell the for $1. Group 1: "It was worth $1 a few days ago, sure. But do you see how successful the lemonade stand has become? The business is worth more now, meaning the magic rocks are worth more now. We'll sell them for $2." Group 2: "That makes sense. Here's some money my mom's boyfriend gave me as allowance" This continues for a few weeks- business keeps getting better, I put up a second lemonade stand, and the value of the magic rocks goes up accordingly, now going for $10 each. Pretty much everyone has "made money" off the magic rocks. Some kid from r/iamverysmart asks Group 1, the professionals, some questions. iamverysmart: "Why are the rocks worth $10?" A: That's the market price- supply and demand Q: "How could I make money on this?" A: The price could go up in the future and you could sell for a profit Q: "What would make the price go up? A: The company does well- You see there are equations for the "natural" price of magic rocks. These involve several variables: income, expected growth.. very complicated stuff. But magic rocks are going for less than their current "natural" price based on these equations. So it's a great time to buy Q: "Why would that make the price of magic rocks go up?" A: Because when you own a magic rock you own part of the lemonade stand. That means its money in the bank, its lemonade, the materials that make up the stand, everything. Q: "But how could I get money on that?" A: Like I said, by selling when the price increases. I understand, it's kind of confusing, but trust we've been doing this for a while and even made some money on it. -------------End Story------------- Lets compare the above lemonade stand to a company that doesn't pay dividends. How are they different? edit: I guess I asking what the "inherent" value of a stock is. It's different from money, which is only valuable because people think it's valuable, right?   submitted by   /u/WheresMyWoobie [link]   [comments]
