A hypothetical situation with rare (poor liquidity) asset question

Reddit Stock Market

09/04/2021 - 18:12

Yesterday, when screening available asset available on by brokerage account, I've noticed that some of them have almost no bids/asks at all, and maybe a few transactions during a week. I know that for stocks with good liquidity the market price is usually very close to the one you see in the live chart, but I don't know what happens in some edge cases, for example: Imagine an asset XYZ with the last market price $150 and the following sell (ask) orders: market order market order limit order at $100 limit order at $90 and no buy (bid) orders at the moment. An hour later someone makes a buy (bid) market order Would the order be executed against (3) or (1) with the price of (3)? Also, what if on both sides there was only one market order, how would then be the price calculated?   submitted by   /u/thecrissbehind [link]   [comments]

  1. Let's imagine another '08. What do you do? (20/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Whether you choose to believe all the rumors circulating around that there's too much liquidity in the market, it's all a bubble, and a '08 style crash is near or not, let's imagine a hypothetical scenario in which you do believe that a market crash is likely to happen within a year. Let's also assume that the question applies to multiple different demographics: You're a student, with not much of any assets to your name. You therefore don't have much leeway in terms of "investing" money, apart from perhaps a couple hundred bucks. However, you should be released onto the job market soon. You're a family man(or woman), with a seemingly stable job. Perhaps you're renting, perhaps you own your family's apartment - In either case, you do have some savings, but have not yet invested much or any of them, for whatever reason - Perhaps they're meant for your kids' studies, and you're risk averse. You're doing quite well for yourself, and have some assets invested in the stock market. While not providing a full wage's worth, the returns do permit you to finance your yearly or biyearly vacation. The question now simply becomes: In each scenario, what do you guys think the person in question should do to best hedge for themselves, under the belief of a coming crash? This question applies both to financials (Invest? In what?) as well as behavior (Get a different type of job?). For context, I personally don't believe that any imminent crash would have ripple effects of similar extent as '08, in part due to the regulation enacted post-crisis (Such as Dodd-Frank). However, any crash would be likely to at the very least exhibit similar short-term effects at the very least. Although it does not matter much to the question, I believe that I do owe you some further context in regards to my "own financial situation", which should perhaps explain what motivated me to post this (Even though, again, this should not impact the question nor the answer): While I am one of those people hated on this sub for being fully invested both financially and emotionally in GameStop, my dad is not. He has some liquid money on the bank (No insane amounts, but an alright safety net. Although the definition of alright would probably depend on the person, and given the demographic frequenting this sub, my dad's amount is most likely on the lower end of your "alright" definition), owns his primary residence, and doesn't really have much of any other asset, whether stocks or something else. I'm curious if any of your answers to my questions above would perhaps be applicable to him, too.   submitted by   /u/IUNOOH [link]   [comments]

  2. In case of war, what stocks would you pick? (12/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    In case of war, what stocks would you pick? Purely hypothetical, however if the situation was to escalate, and you’d have to take your picks, what would that be? I think LMT would be one of the obvious choices since I see their stuff all over NATO. Bonus question, do you recon LMT or RTX would suspend their dividend payouts in case of major conflict?   submitted by   /u/Dimaskovic [link]   [comments]

  3. What is the optimal exit strategy during a squeeze? (08/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    The GME situation has me thinking: What is the optimal way to play a squeeze? It's ridiculously hard to find any information regarding the specific trades you should be doing to exit a squeeze in which you have a long position in. Obviously you want to sell near the peak to maximize gains, but the peak is never known beforehand. Because squeezes aren't that common, there isn't much data available to develop a hypothesis around. For this reason, this will mostly have to be speculation. Even though squeezes themselves may be rare, the concept of a stock going up rapidly and each investor put into a prison's dilemma ensues more often than this. So how to optimally play this is the question. Let's also use the hypothetical of GME going to $150 -> $10,000 over a day as an example. Obviously, you don't know it's going to go up that high. What should you be doing during the ride up? Constantly set sell limits 50% above current? Refresh your stop limit to stay under $100 below current? What the hell does the ride down look like? It seems likely that quite literally nobody would be trying to buy a stock that is going from $10,000 -> $20 rapidly. Can you even sell during the ride down? It feels like nobody would be buying at that point. How necessary is it to form a selling plan early? If you're trying to just wing-it and watch, is this even a viable option. Or would you be placing your sell limit @ $9,000 when it's down in the hundreds? Would love to hear everyone's input.   submitted by   /u/Neighbor_ [link]   [comments]

  4. Capital Gains Question. When do I get hit? Does it matter if I take cash out of my account? (16/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hypothetical Question: 1) If I buy stock for 100 (3 years ago) 2) Then sell for 1000 (a month ago) 3) Then take all cash out of my Ameritrade account for a month. Then put all cash back into my Ameritrade account and rebuy everything (One month later, all in the same year) Will I get hit with capital gains? -------Actual Situation------------------------------------------ This really happened with RDFN. I bought at 12 a share during the COVID DIP, Then sold at 70. Now I am looking to rebuy everything back at around 50. To the moon: RDFN: There is a housing shortage. Homes are too expensive and RDFN has some solutions to make it cheaper. It makes sense to throw some bones in there.   submitted by   /u/Dck_IN_MSHED_POTATOS [link]   [comments]

  5. Question about capitol gains tax on over a million dollars (06/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    This is just a hypothetical question. If you think its stupid im sorry, im just trying to understand. So im doing some research and I found out the capitol gains tax may become 40% if you make a million dollars or more in annual income. Right now it is 20% for long term gains but lets say it got increased to 40%. So lets say you were holding a stock for over a year with $100k and in one month it shot up 1000% and you somehow made 900k in profits in one month. Lets say i make 85k a year in wages. Would it be smarter to sell the stock before I get to a million dollars in annual income if the 40% capitol gains tax is increased? Would I make more money on 985k in annual income if I sold than if I got to lets say 1.2 million in profit from the investment + income and got put in the 40% capitol gains bracket under Bidens plan. Again this is totally hypothetical and if someone could answer it would be much appreciated im just wondering.   submitted by   /u/daedae7 [link]   [comments]

  11. And SEC just watching from the sidelines.. (29/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    SEC not taking action against the likes of Elon Musk and his stock market manipulation is what’s going to mess up the stock market and potentially leave a lot investors behind as bag-holders.. First Tesla dumps $270milion worth of Bitcoin boosting its cash reserves and when called out on it as “Bump n Dump” Elon was quick to defend it as proving “Liquidity of the Asset” (mind blown)???? And now Elon dubs himself as the “DogeFather” which is now boosting the price of “dogecoin” as an asset.. My bet is we are going to see another dump and of course another claim of “Liquidity”.. I honestly think Elon is really in his bedroom toying with the market and betting on himself how much he’s going to influence the market on any given day... (too many retail investors has given him a voice) Remember he was once a geek doing everything he can to be relevant...

I have been regularly buying meme stocks this spring and I've invested nearly 10k... Obviously I haven't sold so I'm not making money right now from them and I plan to make it a longterm investment. My question is this: If I'm seeking subsidized housing, will this large amount of asset affect my ability to receive help? I need it badly but I don't want previous investing choices keeping me homeless... And I don't want to lie about assets because that's not how I roll.

  26. When to sell help - my 20% rule question (21/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Ok so this is a serious question. I have a “rule” where if I’m ever up 20% I sell it all. No reason for the number , it just always seemed like a reasonable amount. But I keep screwing it up in both directions. Now I’m at that point again and have a question. I got AutoNation a few weeks ago. It blew out earnings and is now at a 52wk high and I’m up 24%. But every analyst is raising its target and reputable services are writing they are going to continue crushing it. Zacks rank 1 or 2 still. But here’s what happened a few weeks ago with Lovesac. I was up 25%, all analysts glowing about it. And now I’m down 12%. Nothing changed. Of course now they’re all saying it’s an even BETTER buy cause the future is still that great for them and it’s cheaper. But I f’d up by holding. Then with Havertys a few months ago I was up 28%. Same shit but I actually sold per my rule. Missed out on another 20% after that. The question is - when you’re up a lot - what is your decision factor in “I should sell now” vs “this went up a lot but it really is a good longer hold”. Given the unique situation where AutoNation is at 52wk high, technicals are tougher to see , right?   submitted by   /u/CanesLaw [link]   [comments]

  27. Getting opinions on rare earths with Bidens new supply chain plan (04/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Looking for thoughts. I'm holding MP Materials and TMRC. MP materials holds "light" rare earths and is based in California. Whatever isn't controlled by China basically comes from here. The original color tvs were made using rare earths from this mine. This is also the only mine/processing center of its kind in the western hemisphere. TMRC / Texas Mineral Resources Corp Holds more "heavy" rare earths. Surveys show several decades of supply. Between these 2 companies, I think they are a good investment. Both are U.S. Lynas Rare Earths limited is Australian, but they want to fill the gap for the U.S. if the U.S. tries to move its supply chains away from China.

  28. Demanding Elements From Earth (16/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Rare earth elements (REE) are critical for use in the electric power industry. They are used in the manufacture of renewable energy technology such as high power, low weight rare earth magnets, as well as military and national security applications. But why is it so difficult to obtain these metals and elements nowadays? According to what I've read, obtaining these elements has the potential to minimize the existing political and strategic danger of relying on a hostile situation for REE sources! Rare earth elements will play an important role in our national security. REE is used as the main component of night vision goggles, precision-guided weapons, communications systems, GPS equipment, batteries, and other defense electronics. With the rare earth elements being in demand, acquiring these elements seem to have rallied significantly. But what is the challenge for attaining these elements? sponsored post. The extraction of these elements is complicated by the fact that certain materials are jumbled together in the ground with a variety of other minerals in varying concentrations. Several mining companies are now on the move on acquiring the mineral deposit containing these metals and elements! This will be extremely beneficial to our armed forces! Our armed powers will be able to extend our national defense security with the help of these REEs! Will arm yourself with potential information that could elevate your own energy into something positive? Find out by checking out this article I came across.

  32. Merger Exchange Rate Question - Current example with HRVSF & TCNNF (10/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Here's the current example from which my question stems: Trulieve ($TCNNF) announced its buying Harvest (HRVSF). They are issuing something like .1147 TCNNF shares per HRVSF share. Most articles are highlighting that based on TCNNF closing price last Friday, this is a 35% premium for Harvest shareholders, equaling approximately a value of $4.79 per HRVSF share (or spiked about 17% at open today). My question: When the shares convert over, how exactly did that work? Do HRVSF shareholders get an equivalent amount of shares at the price of TCNNF at the time of the announcement, at the time things finalize? Something else? If TCNNF price tanks between now and then, could this potentially be a loss instead of this estimated premium? Any help explaining this is greatly appreciated. For disclosure, i have approx 5k shares of HRVSF. long on weed industry, not necessarily on TCNNF. This is my first merger/ acquisition I've had skin in the game with, so using this current example instead of a hypothetical. I won't take any info as financial advice.

  33. Question about selling calls, where does the obligation of providing the shares go? (05/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I apologize if this is a common/repeated question, but I haven’t been able to get a solid answer. As I understand, trading options can be very risky, so I am a ways off before I’m comfortable doing so. I’m really just trying to understand how they work right now. I’ve heard about selling your call options but I’m not sure how it works. Let’s say I bought a call through my broker (I’m using Robinhood, might change soon). I know I have the right but not obligation to buy 100 shares at the strike price at/before my expiration. Who is the entity that has the obligation of providing those shares? Is it Robinhood, or just who ever wants to take the risk of selling shares at a loss? For the next part of the question I will refer to this original seller as person A. Now, let’s say my call goes in the money. But I don’t want to buy thousands of dollars worth of shares. The only reason I’d be in this situation is that I’ve heard I can sell calls, so lets say I sell it to person B (person, entity, whatever). But as it is I don’t have 100 shares in my possession. Am I now obligated to sell person B 100 shares if they decide to exercise the call, or is person A (who sold me the contract originally) still obligated? I’ve been researching but haven’t got a straight answer. From what I’ve read, this would be considered selling a naked call, but I am not sure if that is accurate because I understood naked calls as I am person A in my example, but I don’t have 100 shares at the time of selling the option. I’ve also heard of selling to close, which I think is the situation I’m describing but I’m also not sure exactly what happens to the option and how money is earned from that. So can anyone explain if I can sell call contracts, and how that works. Also anywhere I can read more about this type of situation would be good too.   submitted by   /u/Mrsum10ne [link]   [comments]

  35. The 'real' value of stocks. (13/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So I see a lot of discussion about the value of certain asset classes. Many people think for example that a certain asset class that shall not be named has no real value while stocks have real value because you own a piece of a value creating company. (just an observation, not the point of this discussion) My question, why does having partial ownership in a value creating company has value in itself? I would think that that value only exists if that company pays a dividend or if we assume they will at some point start paying a dividend back to it's owners. So let's say I take my company public but the issued shares will never be able to receive a dividend. Would that mean my shares have no real value, thus following popular believe should be prices at zero? Disclaimer: I own and I'm a fan of both asset classes mentioned above.   submitted by   /u/Mattie725 [link]   [comments]

  36. Where does the money come from? (25/06/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Just a set of hypothetical questions here… You short a stock, exposing yourself to infinite risk. The unthinkable doomsday comes to be. Margin called, short squeezed, the works. Your losses are staggering, bigger than the GDP of most countries, and there’s a line of people outside looking for their money. Your infinite risk position just “created” billion/trillions of dollars that don’t actually exist. How could you even cover if you don’t have the money? With an amount so massive, where would the money even come from? Scratch the hypothetical, cause you all know what I’m talking about— how does this all logistically work if share prices really do hit 6-figures? I just can’t make sense of it without leading myself to “market crash, economy collapse, etc”.

  38. A question about Hedge Fund bankruptcy… (05/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Sorry to ask it here, but I wanted a straight and unbiased response. Everyone sees what happening with AMC recently, and I was interested in knowing about what happens if all of the float is bought up (just like the AMC case) and what happens now that HF’s are not in a position to cover at all. Even if they attempt to cover at this point, they will pay massive amounts of money for it, and we can reasonably expect them to go bankrupt. So my question is, why can’t a hedge fund just hold their hands up and go bankrupt on their own accord, especially now in the situation they’re in? And if they do that, then AMC is done if I presume correctly?   submitted by   /u/maximalsimplicity [link]   [comments]
