    Nah. FB has technical support around $120 if you’re patient. Markets overall might make July the top until October. Djia failed to break above 25801 and spy seems to be double topped. I’m waiting for a potential retest of the feb lows as we head into the fall

    TD and RY holder checking in. Also have BCE, FTS, T.TO, and H.TO. Tempted to dump the last 2 and buy US dividend stocks in industries Canada doesn't offer much in terms of dividends (tech, defense, consumer staples, etc.). LMT and MSFT are high on my list, but PM, PEP, and KKR also interest me.

    In other news, I just opened up options trading for my account.

    What is ya'll opinion on Ford? I got in 3-4 months GO AT $11.02, watched it climb way up then back down, for some dumbass reason I decided to "average down" and bought some more at $10.90 right before the dividend, needless to say im balls deep red.

    I guess im stuck holding for awhile, my question: average down again? wait and average down in the future? or just hold what I got? (My investing plan from now on is to hold 3-4 good dividend blue chips and throw the rest of my $ and all future funds into Dow and S&P ETFs)

    Just hold and collect the dividend. The share price will go back up at some point hopefully.

    I will say that if we have another recession autos will prob take it on the chin again. They don't seem to have very good defensive properties unlike consumer staples or pipelines.
    You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told you're a god or a total bastard. The iron always kicks you the real deal. It's the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. I have found it to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But 200 pounds is always 200 pounds.

    I've been holding ford for like 6+ years, but part of me thinks they are crumbling. I've pretty much decided to go down with the ship at this point. Considering I bought 50 shares at the time and I've got close to 60 now I'm probably not down as much as it looks like, but I'm not a huge fan of their current direction. Once gas gets to $4-5 dollars a gallon again (which it will easily because of all the added taxes we pay on each gallon since gas prices had gone down significantly at $40 a gallon). Suddenly no one is going to want big vehicles again. At some point they will be cutting the dividend too...

    Thinking of getting long TLT, GDX, SLV with some poor man covered calls. What are some other good recession proof equities?

    Want to protect myself from another bursting bubble. Feel like we are in a similar situation to 2008 except much more exacerbated.

    Inflation is kicking in. The debt has more than doubled. Interest rates are gonna go up.... don't see how we pay government bonds. Household debt at all time highs. Banks still giving out too much risky money. Student loans.

    Stay safe brahs.

    In a good amount on T also for that dividend, hoping it'll start doing better soon now that it has TWX

    ACBFF, CGC and APHQF still holding for over a year its been a roller coaster

    I do a little swing trading too but still have yet to dabble with options...soon.jpg

    doom and gloom huh fella? It certainly feels topish since expectations have been crazy high for every company. Once expectations simmer down I think we see solidly profitable companies making big ground over these start ups that are a money pit if they don't manage to be highly profitable soon.

    Inflation is kicking in. The debt has more than doubled. Interest rates are gonna go up.... don't see how we pay government bonds. Household debt at all time highs. Banks still giving out too much risky money. Student loans.

    Stay safe brahs.
    consumer staples, utilities and pipelines. they dip at bit but nothing too drastic. Why TLT?

    damn AAPL. might cover my short tomorrow.

It's the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. I have found it to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But 200 pounds is always 200 pounds.

    I still keep on trading as usual with all other equities. More of a hedge. Don't really trust our economy as it stands. Until we cut some government spending I will be skeptical. What has changed since 2008? Besides more debt and more spending.

    Figure people would move into bonds if moving out of the market. Also all 3 are at extremely low IV percentiles which is about the only time I'd ever initiate a PMCC.

    I don't buy options 99% of the time. Prefer to sell premium.

    Jobs strong AF. Discretionary spending is huge ATM. That kind of momentum can drive an economy for now.

    I do a little swing trading too but still have yet to dabble with options...soon.jpg
    right on man. it really helps as a long term investor to know that in the long run the ticker don't matter, but it sure is addicting to look at. I did an analysis on T for my buddy who is a financial analyst just to learn the ropes in the world of investing. I totally think it is an undervalued company and will do very well in the long run. I also did one on wells fargo and took a position in them a few months back.

    Apple and Facebook are my tech positions. Both will do very well in the long term, i am confident in that. This facebook dip doesn't scare me as a long termer. it provided me the opportunity to load up another 10k .

    compound interest FTW


    i gotta say though. the puts and calls options are definitely enticing and look exciting lol. i just have no idea how to do em and if i did it would probably consume me , because its basically gambling lol. 98% of day traders don't survive and i would be another one if i got into it lol.

    I don't know much about FB, but apple is a solid long term investment.

    Options, to me, are fun to play around with and I've done surprisingly well the last couple weeks.

    I managed to exit my RAD options for $2 at 10 cents a contract so marginal gain, but at least I didn't lose anything and covered the small loss I took trying to trade FB. Waiting to see what Netflix does tomorrow I think tech rallies so I might try FB again. Trying to decide which side of the fence I want to play with tesla...

    with short term options there are really only 2 things that matter. 1- volatility for a big move and of course 2 picking the right direction

    Options just give you leverage and many more ways to trade the market.

    You can make money in options whether the market moves up, down, or goes nowhere. You can play for volatility expansion or contraction. And you can mix and match all of the above.

    I prefer to stay neutral in direction and play for volatility contraction. But most here seem to do the opposite.

    From a buying power reduction stand point I really see no reason to ever buy stock unless it is a really low priced stock. You can always use options to synthetically mimic stock for much much lower margin cost.

    exited my TMV today at 20.50 for gains. that had some scary moments. I guess holding 3x for weeks on end is fine after all . Strong hands.

    Glad I fomo'd into TAP yesterday at 67 looks hnnnnnng so far.

    Lol at watching the options on tesla. There must be a lot of interest in both the puts and the calls because tesla was up like a dollar or something but all the calls and puts were still positive and even the ones for friday cost like $1200 a contract close to otm. Tempted to write contracts both ways and hope the swing isn't too wild in either direction.

    That's what I did. The ROC was so high I couldn't pass it up. I try to avoid writing naked options on earnings plays but these were just too rich to pass up. Hopefully doesn't bite me

    Sold the Sep 21st 340C/265P. It was around $2300 credit for only around $3200 of my margin. $45 of Theta decay per day.
