    Quoted from sd_tom:

    for service industry no change from today.

    Our industry might be a in a gray area at the moment. How necessary is the auto repair and service industry if hardly anybody is driving their cars?

    Edit- wrong thread

    #2353 71 days ago

    Illinois has been sheltering for 3 or so days now. No dining in, takeaway only, no bars, etc. it’s not too bad. There is talk about closing the boarder once the IL national guard gets situated. That will suck if it happens and you’re out of the state. You may not get back in.

    California locked down for 16 deaths?

    There were probably more people that died this week on the toilet

    What a scam

    #2355 71 days ago

    In some parts of the state, the number of cases is doubling in just a few days. They are not equipped to handle as many people that might end up with it within a couple weeks. If they do nothing and there are not enough beds or respirators, then somebody's going to lose their job.

    They are just trying to slow it down so the cases do not happen all at once like has happened in other countries. And soon this will be nationwide protocol, and it almost already is.

    #2356 71 days ago

    Dow +721 in premarket. Gonna be a rocky day...

    #2357 70 days ago

    It's quad witching day. Hold on to your hats. These are typically the days each year with the most trading volume.

    "Quadruple witching refers to a date on which stock index futures, stock index options, stock options, and single stock futures expire simultaneously. While stock options contracts and index options expire on the third Friday of every month, all four asset classes expire simultaneously on the third Friday of March, June, September, and December."

    With this out of the way, markets should be much less volatile starting Monday. The outstanding options are playing a big part in the huge swings up and down each day.

    #2358 70 days ago

    Futures are still up but are dropping. I think you will have a bunch of trading today but probably a sell off into the close as people are probably not going to want to be long into the weekend. A lot can change between close and Monday AM. Good luck to all that play today.

    #2359 70 days ago

    Playing with fire again I am !

    #2360 70 days ago

    If anybody is watching CNBC Dan Niles is crushing it right now. He is saying that you could see some 5-10% relief rallies but that they would be short lived. Thinks we are nowhere near a bottom. He said that if you are down 10%, you only need to get 11% up to get even, but if you are down 30%, you have to get back up 43% to get even, and if you are down 50%, you have to have a 100% rally to get even.

    Wow those hotel stocks...

    #2362 70 days ago
    Quoted from Zablon:

    Wow those hotel stocks...

    Well ya dude. My whole industry is based around live events at hotel properties. We literally bring in 1,000's of people to multiple hotels that then all have meetings within those hotels and then all get together in an arena at the beginning and end. Think about all the food and beverage lost, all that transportation.

    #2363 70 days ago

    My local SPECs was covered up yesterday, like it was the day before Thanksgiving or Christmas, how are liquor stocks?

    The morning rally has faded. But it is early enough in the day to recover.

    Ordinarily, I would say that I would be surprised to see a recovery this afternoon. However, who the hell knows anymore?

    Is anyone attempting to make jumps in and out, or just sitting on the side? I'm watching it, but no time to really hunt for anything

    #2370 70 days ago
    Quoted from Zablon:

    Is anyone attempting to make jumps in and out, or just sitting on the side? I'm watching it, but no time to really hunt for anything

    I have a short position on. It has been on way to long and for quite some time I have been married to the position. It has started showing sings of life. I think I will be able to get more out of it as time passes; I'll never get all of my money back, but it looks a lot better now that what it has been.

    I probably should not talk about it but it puts me in the position of wanting the world to crater.

    But I am not looking for anything new, yet. I have been away too long to start jumping in an taking risks and chances. Once things settle down I am going to look into doing some 3-day-trade type stuff. I wish I had vision for long term stuff, but after get caught and wiped out in an earnings warning I am short term in nature. I just do not trust companies to speak the truth.

    #2371 70 days ago

    Hi Guys and Gals, I am not a market guy but see an opportunity to replace some low interest CD income but don't know enough to not get myself in trouble so I thought I would check in with my fellow Pinsiders. Even though I don't know you folks personally I trust your expertise and experience more than I would a lot of those commissioned brokers out there. I have lurked here for close to a decade so I feel I know you from a distance.

    Here is my question, I have about $500k available, I'm looking for a get it and forget it scenario.

    I am thinking something like aristocrat's (just learned that term) or an index fund or both. Something that will generate a reasonable return (not rolling over anymore CD's) a blend of holdings that are safe to not likely go bankrupt or have serious dividend cuts or elimination. I know this is an overly broad request but wanted to get a few ideas from my fellow pinball buddies.

    For the really tough (impossible) question any thought on when to jump in? Jump in with both feet or come in over time.

    Thanks Pinside

    #2372 70 days ago

    Many of the Vanguards are decent. I am partial to VIG and VYM. If I had it to do all over again, I would have dumped most of my money on other stocks on those instead....Wait I do have it to do all over again, and that is my plan I would suggest researching the list of Vanguards as a starting point. They give you a nice dissection of the market.

    As for timing...I don't think anyone knows at this point. I would say, don't throw it all in at once, in case you are wrong. Do it over a period of time - on a schedule, not really looking at the market prices after you start.

    My understanding is what he did wasn't illegal though. Now, if we take into account whether or not there was willful misinformation being fed to the public around what was known at the time maybe, but I'm not sure anyone can prove it...

    Remember the whole Equifax stock sales fiasco?

    #2375 70 days ago

    Resign a rich ass fucker...should have to pay it all back.

    Honest opinion: For 500K I would recommend that you find a broker or a fiduciary (they are not the same) to help you with that sum of money. Based upon the market conditions you could absolutely get toasted right now. I agree with Zablon's points but I don't think we are near the bottom at this time. It is hard to time the market, and double so for somebody who is not a market guy. I personally have my money on the side and have a plan that I have drawn up for insertion points and commodities with my guy. We are not at that point yet (looking at S&P 2350) as a starting point to nibble.

    Technically not illegal but it is bullshit. All of the senators involved from both sides should go!

    #2378 70 days ago

    Pretty unethical thats for sure. How is it they have access to insider trading in the first place?

    On the other hand, it didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out this was going to happen.

    If it was illegal, they should be prosecuted.

    On the other hand, it didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out this was going to happen.

    What's the solution though? Don't U.S. Senators and House members get a defined-benefit pension? Perhaps they should be barred from purchasing securities. Otherwise, it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation. Wouldn't anyone who is made privy to information that could sink stocks sell what they have? What's the alternative? Be forced to hang onto it for lack of insider information accusations?

    Well, I can speak to this. When I have access to information that possibly tells me what the markets are likely to do, I'm not allowed to buy/sell stocks without some oversight if at all. So...I mean..what's good for the peasants and all... They aren't likely to vote against their best interests though.

    What these two guys said.

    Cash laying around for 3-4 months is not going to hurt you in any way.

    Take your time. Unless you are terminal, you will have plenty of time to make a move.

    Yep, the day ended on script. Dow down 917, which is big. Factor in the premarket up 700 and change and it is even bigger. I agree with Dan Niles that you are going to have some relief rallies and even periods of time during the day that you can get in and out. However, if that is not your game, I recommend sitting on the side. There is no confidence in this market and if you aren't looking at the ticker constantly, you can get your nuts in a vice. Sure, you are buying down from highs and recent highs, but how much lower is this going to go? It would suck to buy a stock already down and have it go down another 20% before it stabilized. That would be a pretty big move down and up just to get even, and you have dead money in the market. Patience is your friend.

    Lets see what horrible thing happens over the weekend to weaken the market more.

    #2384 70 days ago

    Which would you guys recommend for an individual brokerage account fidelity or vanguard? Or is there a better option out there?

    Looking to buy some on my own outside of my account with my broker. Mostly single stocks and maybe some indexes and mutual funds.. dont know enough about puts or any of that yet.

    #2385 70 days ago

    Maybe e-trade or something like that?

    #2386 70 days ago

    Who's looking forward to Monday? Another weekend of good news should sure things up.

    #2387 70 days ago

    It’s a great feeling having a the money I dumped several weeks ago dumped into cash and other non non stock market accounts. So not even going to pay attention to Monday, cuz after all the partying this weekend, I’m going to need some rest

    Not a party of one. He's been trolling the Corona Virus thread for a while calling everyone idiots for being concerned. Now he is trolling here saying he got out at the right time and doesn't care about the market. He's pretty vile.

    Depends what you're buying. Vanguard is great for low cost ETFs, mutual funds, free stock trades, etc. If you plan to trade in the premarket or aftermarket, or want to daytrade, you'll want something built for that.

    I decided on TD Ameritrade and don't regret it. I daytrade and mostly use the mobile app while I'm doing other things.

    Keep in mind for daytrading you need to keep at least $25k in the brokerage account per SEC rules.

    I wish you luck upgrading your lineup in the future, it really needs it. Everything you have is old and boring much like your postings. Party on Wolfie

    Quoted from vex:

    And my IJ or TOTAN would buy 2x of anything in your lineup.

    So when I decide to get a NIB (which won’t be a Stern), I’ll be getting 2x.

    I actually got a really old 79 Gottlieb Genie, so I’m actually getting older machines cuz everything new sucks. But if JJP releases a GNR with above POTC depth and detail, then maybe that will be worth NIB

    #2395 70 days ago

    Just ribbing you Wolfie. Looking forward to seeing the new GNR as well.

    #2396 70 days ago
    Quoted from vex:

    Just ribbing you Wolfie. Looking forward to seeing the new GNR as well.

    Yeah I’m still curious why JJP didn’t release it. I still would have bought one regardless. Seem like people are buying these regardless because might as well be home playing something fun

    Yeah, I don't expect any of the 4 Senators (R or D) to get anything other than maybe a warning or a slap on the hand with a gloved hand.

    That said, Burr definitely told the public one thing and told his donors another thing.

    On Feb. 27, when the United States had 15 confirmed cases of COVID-19, President Trump was tamping down fears and suggesting that the virus could be seasonal.

    "It's going to disappear. One day, it's like a miracle. It will disappear," the president said then, before adding, "it could get worse before it gets better. It could maybe go away. We'll see what happens."

    On that same day, Burr attended a luncheon held at a social club called the Capitol Hill Club. And he delivered a much more alarming message.

    "There's one thing that I can tell you about this: It is much more aggressive in its transmission than anything that we have seen in recent history," he said, according to a secret recording of the remarks obtained by NPR. "It is probably more akin to the 1918 pandemic."

    No, she went to prison for lying to the FBI about doing the same stuff.
