    Quoted from Londonpinball:

    Options are not available for this. It did not give any indication if there would be some in the future.

    #1103 1 year ago

    Yea, looks like u need lots
    Of volume to have the demand for options

    I am looking at the Montreal exchange for options.

    Alright, give me your top 10 stock investments, you're making right now with your own money. Market is tanking, probably gonna be a good time to buy if you have a little put away to invest for the eventual ride back up. Apple is still getting some of my investment dollars. Sitting on too much cash not to be a solid buy.

    Others? Interested in thinking.

    Waiting to buy until the market is closer to 17000.

    Not trying to be political at all. After you posted I started searching the web for 17,000. Came across this article. I don't agree with much but a nice prediction...

    https://www.cnbc.com/2016/12/10/economist-harry-dent-says-dow-could-plunge-17000-points.html

    That article is from two years ago and he was predicting the market would go to around DOW 5000 from around 22000 for a 17000 point collapse. I am predicting the market will likely go to around 17000-15000 (a loss of about 9000 to 11000 points), not to lose 17000. A 40 to 50 percent correction is not that hard to see when we are already down close to 20 percent.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    #1109 1 year ago

    I also would expect the market to bounce back to 20000 within a few years of such a correction.

    Holding cash at the moment

    #1111 1 year ago

    Sold some tanked funds (hello international!) at thanksgiving time for tax loss harvesting and to offset a gain from earlier in the year. Probably will do the same with small cap.

    I don't do the TLH partner hunt. I just leave in money mkt and repurchase after a month or so.

    #1112 1 year ago

    And... the Stock Market has its biggest 1 day point rise ever.

    #1113 1 year ago

    I bought pretty heavy into both FedEx and UPS. I have zero inside knowledge. I just felt they were both too oversold based on Amazon getting into the package delivery business.

    Quoted from ZNET:

    I enjoy learning from my fellow pinsider stock market traders, in this unusual thread. Here’s a question for the financial gurus on this thread, which addresses the notion that it’s foolish to attempt to invest based upon short-term timing of market trends:
    I know this pinball enthusiast quite well who is wholly unsophisticated with financial markets. Because he’s 59 years old, his retirement fund portfolios were, until very recently, in moderate risk investments in the aggregate. In the last few months, he has moved his entire portfolio into very low risk investments. He did so because of bearish concerns in the near offing, specifically, the scenario as follows:
    1) special counsel, Robert Mueller, releases a report or takes other action prior to Labor Day 2018. The timing is intentional. Mr. Mueller wants to avert the criticism of releasing explosive information on the eve of the midterm elections. Also, his survival as special counsel is dubious after the midterms, with the ever-increasing threats to fire U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and other threats by POTUS and GOP legislators against ancillary persons associated with the Russian election interference investigation;
    2) the Mueller report creates uncertainty about whether POTUS will serve the remainder of his term and/or a Constitutional crisis arises therefrom;
    3) markets plunge in reaction to that uncertainty, as they did in December 2017 (Dow Jones industrial average dropping 350 points) when journalist, Brian Ross of ABC News, incorrectly implicated POTUS in reporting upon conversations with Michael Flynn involving Russia.
    My pinball friend does not understand why “timing” of markets is generally regarded as a fool’s errand. Certainly, if he had a time machine enabling him to predict future events, he would buy low and sell high and take all measures timed to those key known events. Consequently, if he’s confident in the above scenario and its timing, his looking-glass serves as his personal time machine, for better or for worse. Naturally, his prediction of events and the markets’ reactions to those events could be entirely wrong. Nevertheless, if he’s comfortable with trying to time his investments to such events, what is the defect in his logic, apart from conventional wisdom that it’s very difficult to time such events?
    My neophyte investment prognosticator, pinball friend relies on his acumen as a Constitutional scholar and a political junkie. He is certain that many others foresee this foreboding scenario and have likewise shifted their portfolios in advance of the anticipated plunge. This post is not meant, in any fashion, to be a political statement. Rather, this is a serious inquiry about how investors ought to view political events and their perceived dramatic effect on the financial markets. I (on behalf of my friend, of course) look forward to the words of wisdom to follow from the gurus.

    In the summer of 2018, I moved virtually all of my retirement investments from stocks into bond and money market funds. I did so in anticipation of a precipitous market plunge, thinking that the Mueller report was in the near offing. I was also concerned about all of the trade war issues last spring/summer.
    Of course, I was wrong and the experienced folks here advised of the foolishness in trying to time the market. Now that the market has adjusted downward (for reasons unrelated to Mr. Mueller's investigation), I am wondering about the propriety of buying stocks now.

    Anyone else surprised that news such as Apple reporting lower sales in China impacts the entire market? Apple seems surprised that their sales could even slow...well Apple a lot of people don't have $800-$1k to drop on a new phone every year. Technology is lasting longer today, and phones can now be used for years versus having to buy a new model every year or two. Pretty ridiculous.

    The phones have not been exciting since the IPhone 6 and 6 Plus release 4 years ago. The next big release should revitalize Apple and will likely be the flip smartphone which will probably be 2020 but should be 2019 if they want to be first of the major manufacturers.

    We are going back to flip phones?

    Really? I cant even use my wife's iphone 8 without laughing. The home button is a joke. Utterly useless and a waste of space. Removing that, and the new cameras that are on the x-plus, make it very much exciting.

    #1120 1 year ago

    My phone is 6 plus (4 years and 3 months old). I was thinking to upgrade but it still works ok,and they would only give me $200 trade in on the new phone. I prefer the thumb ID to the Face ID so I was disappointed with the Face ID only. Maybe in the next gen they will be able to incorporate thumb print along with Face ID.

    I could get the old phone 8 plus but they’re only giving $100 trade in for that. So in summary I’m just keeping my old phone.

    Used to be the wireless carriers would subsidize the phones to keep people under contract but not so much any more.

    Have you never been to a casino? They are one of many databases that would have your face.

    Not paranoid... but legally, you don't have to tell a law enforcement officer you phone password. However, refusing to provide biometric data like a thumb print or face scan is obstruction of justice... so passwords are the way to go.

    With that said... my phone stays unlocked

    Boom! Another good reason to keep it the code.

    Yes, Ive been to a casino. you can also argue that you should just stay inside because there are cameras everywhere. Im just choosing to not give them my face every day of my life. they just get it when they can.

    January posted a positive 7.9% gain (best month in more than 3 years) looks like the bull isn’t dead yet.

    2018 wasn’t a great year -5% but this is a good recovery or at least no crash yet.

    Here’s a calculator I found to shows stock performance over the past decade.

    Goes back 10 years.

    But for example $10k of Amazon if bought in 2009 would be worth $273K today (39% annual gain).

    Heck even GE which is a total bust wouldn’t have lost money if you bought it 10 years ago. (This calculated dividends).

    Here’s one I did was MO $16/share and I’ve collected $19 in dividends over that time.

    I bought some Cronos, a marijuana company, as a gamble about two weeks ago. It has been interesting watching it yo-yo.[quoted image]

    Cronos stock this morning. I bought 200 shares a few months ago at $12.00 a share. Wish I would have bought more!

    #1129 1 year ago

    Yeah, it has been killing it the last 10 days. I bought 800 shares at $10/share. I looked at it as a pure gamble at the time, and have decided to let it ride to see if it does something like $50 or $100 a share.

    looking at a 10 yr chart at this time you are looking at the low spring 2009 to now not a chart to look at if you want a good representation of how the next ten yr will go

    I was hesitant to get the XS because of the face ID. I got to say, I like it so much better than the thumb print.

    I’ve used E*TRADE for 20 years. It’s pretty easy site with lots of info. I am sure there are cheaper sites, and probably better if you are a really active trader. But it’s been a good site for me
