Can anyone explain what Wall Street actually likes?

Reddit Stocks

20/05/2021 - 00:46

Alright, I've been trading since February so I'm still very wet behind the ears. I've been trying to figure out exactly what Wall Street likes and dislikes and it's super confusing. During the recovery, I learned that they hate higher interest rates. They also really hate inflation. They hate tech stocks when things they hate are happening (like inflation or interest rates). They hate high job numbers because economy is racing back, but also hate low job numbers because economy isn't racing back fast enough. I understand most of that is connected, but what is the true catalyst of major selloffs in the tech industry? Fears of interest rate inceases? Is that their main fear and they're ready to sell at any potential hint at anything that could trigger rate increase? Or is there something else they're scared of more than rates? And is there an actual situation they like which encourages massive buying? Or is it just easier to short right now so hedge funds are pretending any little thing scares then but in reality the value of stocks are on the high side so they're riding them down before loading up and riding them back up? This is so confusing. And can you also explain your tips on making low risk plays during market sell-offs? Like buying calls and hoping they land OTM? Thanks!   submitted by   /u/stevebeans [link]   [comments]

  46. To previous GME players that got burned: Please remember that it was not your fault and your trade was a smart idea. (26/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I've seen numerous people lately resenting what they've done during the insane GME hype and are bashing the stock again now that it is kicking off again. Some bought in way early before it really kicked off, and some bought in near the tail end in the 100's, 200's, 300's, and higher. This is to those that bought in at the tail end and sold at a loss (unless you're still diamond handing). YOU DID NOTHING WRONG! GameStop was easily going to spike into the thousands. IB literally said it himself ON CAMERA. GME WAS GOING TO HIT THE THOUSANDS. Your play would have been the best play you've made yet. But the marker makers hit the kill switch instantly and caused the downward spiral. Stop saying you did a stupid play. Stop calling other people who bought into the GME hype stupid. It was going to happen on that day when it opened in the 400's. Wall Street stopped it all because of the astronomical losses and literal bankruptcy of the shorters. So please, don't be mad at yourself or Reddit or the internet in general for buying in and getting burned. Be mad at Wall Street for fucking over the retailer one more bloody time. FUCK Wall Street.   submitted by   /u/nams0 [link]   [comments]
