Exactly,,,
They will have a whole of political market rallying verbage, to break the bad news to us...

Something to the effect
The CV19 closures/policys had a significant impact to society, unemployment & business which had a huge effect on our economy, however the economy has outperformed our expections, and is recovering faster than expected. We hope to return to Un employment rate of ____________ %, in the next 3-6 months, with a GDP of ________% blah blah blah...

Bears will see this as bad news and sell.
The bulls will see this as good news and buy...

Market will swing down 300-500 points in the next day or so, and recoup all of in the following 5 trading days.

All be above is my bullshit, because I have no freaking clue of how its gonna go... just a wild guess.

I ponied up and joined Montley Fool. I have to say their picks through all of this have been spot on. At least the ones I have purchased. I am up on a good 35% over the last 6 months on their picks. Keep in mind their picks are not geared around timing the market. I am not a day trader. I actually hardly ever sell anything. I am a long term player who purchases small amounts incrementally over time in the same portfolio of stocks while adding new ones every couple of months. Warren Buffett once said he regrets every stock he ever sold

I've been out of TZA for a while (fortunately) but I may start having some fun again in the upcoming weeks.

Millions of day traders are fucking with this market. How do you explain the big run up of certain companies that are fighting off bankruptcy? Trading now more than ever is gambling not stock picking. It has little to do with PE or profitability, sort of like the late 90’s

I think it is the other way around.. the millions of hedgefunds and large banks/investment groups are fucking with the market and have for years. Collectively they have enough buying power to move the markets.. They are the first ones in, and first ones out. The entire market is a pump and dump. The day traders just follow.

Those are the “day traders“.

Pretty much luck for the average Joe sitting home on his Ameritrade account picking stocks. .

GUSH hit $39. Buying more? I am thinking about it.
I'm going to see what happens tomorrow. If it opens lower I will for sure.

I was thinking of selling when it was over $60 actually, but I held because of FOMO 😂 . It was a no brainer to buy under $20, now I'm putting a little more thought into when I should put in more and also about when to exit

I still have positions in JNUG and SPXL, that are just kind of dithering around, but still nicely in the black.

The only certain thing is that the libs and Media will create catastrophic event after catastrophic event until November in order to quill all rallies or positive news

The 2nd wave is the new “world is ending” headline. Anything to kill America from now to November.

I believe there is much more to come.....they won't quit as they are fighting for their lives and everybody else can go to hell as far as they are concerned.

JNUG has slowly trended down the last several days. Sold my positions today to try and jump deeper into Gush.

Mr. Market decided it wanted to shake some people up today. Whoa.

I added to RDP spreadsheet; it shows comparison of how a stock is doing relative to major Index YTD, from the Feb high and the March low. See how a stock is performing in both down and up markets. If it is at (Beta) or better (Alpha), than the market (^SPX or ^IXIC) it's worth a some time to see how and why. This spreadsheet is a poor-man's view of RSI (relative Strength Indicator). We watch RS (slightly different than RSI) before buying or selling any position.

There is an input box in the top left of the spreadsheet that allows you to input a symbol (stock, ETF or Mutual Fund).

Correct. JNUG is/was my depression hedging position. Again I got in so low, it was a no brainer at the time, and upside is huge.

Dude, I thought you cashed out when you were up 10k? Damn! I was only up 1k or so but I jumped out. I think thats when you said you were up 10k.

Its just too Volatile right now. I have about 2k in Long Games stuff now and am not opening up my app daily. LOL...its too stressful!

I pushed out, I figured the moment I pulled out it would sky rocket. Lesson learned. Taking a large gain is never bad.

Made a few changes to the spreadsheet. Feel free to offer ideas to add or adjust it.
