I'm keeping a really close eye on SDS. I just don't see what we have to be "happy" about. Unemployment, inflation, massive government debt, no fix for healthcare exists...

 

This is all a mirage.

Im sorry, what would healthcare have to do with the stock market???

 

Messing around buying "SHORT-the-market" ETFs is just trying to outthink/overthink the market, and trust me NO ONE CAN. A person usually just ends up "jobbing" themselves around accomplishing nothing.

 

It's real simple guys...Buy good and BIG companies AFTER they've gotten their asses kicked. There's no better play than Banking right now. Dont invest/trade for the excitement, do it for the money.......

 

Everyone always likes to have a great story to tell about some obscure whatever, that popped. Unfortunately, this is NOT the economy that going to find that happening anytime soon... Buy the big stuff, most of 'em are at penny stock prices, don't try to be an einstein (unless you have a doctorate in financial modeling and global economics)...

Healthcare is an issue right now because the government is spending all of its time and effort spinning it's wheels worrying about healthcare instead of trying to fix the problems that can be fixed.

 

Debt, stimulus that actually works, etc.

 

Healthcare is just a distraction used by the government to keep everyones eyes off the stuff that really matters, the next financial collapse that's coming.

 

Just my thoughts...

Im thinking about buying some of IMGG on Monday. A guy I work with turned me onto this stock today. It looks very promising to me. The pharmaceutical stocks have been VERY good to me lately.

  • 2 weeks later...

If you are not afraid of penny stocks, there is a chance to make a quick 30-50% within a week. Let me know if interested.

Has anyone considered AAPL for the holidays? They have recently expanded iphone sales in Korea and the stock usually goes up around christmas.

 

Cramer is pushing this one big time...If you trust his advice go for it!:)

Im at that already with the stock I just posted about. I have owned it for 2 weeks now. I predict it will either hover around its current price or go down some more. Then when the FDA approval comes(which I think is an almost guarantee) it will take off.

Why so confident on the approval? I remember waiting for HEB approval any day now beginning of the year. If I didn't sell in may I'd still be waiting...

Just a hunch and if you look at the results it looks like a sure thing. Plus the cost savings over the product its replacing. Maybe I'm wrong but who knows.

Some of my advice:

 

1) If anyone tells you about a "sure thing" or that they have a way to make 30-50% in a week or month or even a year, tell them to take a hike.

2) Penny stocks = gambling. Your odds are better at a casino.

3) Waiting for FDA approval = gambling. Your odds are better at a casino.

4) Very few traders make money. It is only the long-term investor that does well.

5) If you do not have an edge, do not trade. The market has already priced all available information into the price of the stock.

6) Buy on rumor only if you're the one starting the rumor.

The only good investments right now are outside the USA and the coming collapse of the US Dollar ... any gains in US based stocks are immediately lost on the world economic stage in the form of dollar devaluation. You couldn't pay me to drop money in any domestic US stock, unless there is significant international exposure. What good are AAPL shares at $300 when your $300 won't be worth but 10 EUROs? Or 20 AUD? This investment prognostication has me conflicted in a storm of antithesized emotions ... as the dollar falls and I continue to make money (sure that makes me happy) I know it puts us (the USA) closer to the day of reckoning (that doesn't make me happy).

I am still waiting for the devaluation down here. I guess I will just collect pesos until then.

Commodity based dollars my friend (CAN, AUD) ...

 

Can you imagine being SHORT this stock? Congratulations, you already are. Its the fall of the USD. I can't imagine being short to a stock that I can't sell, yet, millions of Americans are now unwitting players in the great short sale.

I like most of what you said, but.........Thats where you messed up... So, what would you tell the long term investors now? Guys that have had their money in one place over the last 8 years and have lost most of what was there, or in best cases made NOTHING??? In 8 years.

 

While the short term trader has quadrupled or quintupled his money in this year alone...

1. No one told me it was a sure thing. Someone suggested the stock to me after doing research I decided it was a good chance.

 

2. Im starting with such a low amount buying 5-10 shares of a more "stable" stock such as AAPL is out of the question. I know what I could loose and am prepared to take the risk.

 

3. I know.

 

4. Currently Im doing ok, but realize I could loose it all.

 

5. I dont quite understand what your getting at here.

 

6. Thanks, I didnt.

 

I know the risks in investing in the stock market. Thanks for the advice.

I completely agree. I have often thought about taking everything out of what I currently own and put it all in SLV but I could see stocks like that being worthless in the near future due to government regulation. I would also like invest in world currencies like you are doing but I have no idea how to go about doing it. Do you have any suggestions of resources I can read into to figure out WTF I am doing?

 

Just found this, all I have to say is wow:

That's got to be the funniest thing I've heard in a long time. Buy and hold? Yea, hows that working for ya? Sounds like someone's read a lil too much Suze Orman.

If you don't want to open a forex account you can trade the currency ETF's ... FXC, FXA, FXY, FXE ... however, these trade during market hours and forex trades 24/7. That means, while the market is closed they will move and open up or down. For example, FXA closed today at 88.96 but now it is 89.40 ... I wouldn't suggest these for trading since the spreads are ridiculous but for swing trades or long term hedges they are OK. The AUS (FXA) is a bit overbought right now and I'd wait for pullback. Australia just raised their interest rates yesterday.

FX spreads arent THAT bad, depends on who you're using. Plus leverage isnt a bad thing either...

 

I still cant stop laughing at the the "Long-term investor" phrase. Good luck with that one Suzy.

Not to start something, yet I find it simplistic to scoff at the "long term" statement whan I have not seen ONE of you ask for them to define long term....

 

You also seem to assume that no one who bought 8-10 years ago AND held has made any money ... that too would be simplistic in that you have NO idea what they may have bought AND held.

 

It may be worth stating to the "boiler-room" crowd that you jump to conclusions with the pace and emotion that you probably trade ... god I hope you do not do that with anyone else's money ... and if you do, I hope it is not significant amounts ... I have met those before and AT LEAST one was banned by the SEC.
