I had two positions just to feel the rush. Made $600 on the first on 4 minutes. Lost $500 on the second in an hour. $84 profit after fees

The stock market is an effective mechanism for the transfer of wealth.

If you want to play with fire again, goto the cryptocurrency market and gamble with the worthless altcoin called DOGE (DogeCoin), which is up 300%+ today. It was a millennial buy awhile back and cooled off. Now that GME died, it seems that the crew has rediscovered DOGE.

Since it cost only pennies, the young Robinhood types have an easy entry. Plus the logo is a cute dog which seems to make it attractive to the newbie crowd. DOGE will be interesting to watch in the coming days and weeks. I have no stake in DOGE but that could change if I see an opportunity. At the time of this posting, DOGE is quoted at .03016 for 314% increase.

Let’s see if the social media pump and dump machine fires back up on DOGE.

Lol. My hunch looks right so far. DOGE reached .06896 for +536%.

Let’s see where it is when I wake up...... .10 or higher?

I got in a small position on DOGE on a tip from a buddy. Not sure what its competitive advantage is, but I read it started as a joke. Also read that the reddit group is joining with ETH after the robinhood mess. My XRP position is still locked.

Got some SLV, NAKD and GME.
Zero competitive advantage. It is a true joke. That doesn't mean that you can't make money on it though. LOL

Already long on PETS in my portfolio and it looked like it was part of the play. Sold on the 28th for 14K profit. If I had sold earlier in the day I would have almost doubled that.

I had a good chunk of shares in NAKD, bought at .4 and sold at .45 I missed the real run :mad: by an hour by the end of the day it was over $3.00 I'm kicking myself for that one.

I do have a small position in GME that has done well, I have sold some and bought some along the way. I plan to just play the volatility.

I also have a decent position in PHUN that gave a nice run early in the week I sold off part of the position then a very nice late run Friday. Still holding that one.

This has been the strangest week, in 3 days, I made nice stack in quick profits that are sitting in cash and I am still mad at myself.

I don't think I have been just short of hitting a 5 figure gain so many times in my life. I have 3 trades in 2 weeks I have missed a 5 figure payday by a matter of hours. One day the stars will align. All in all this has been the most profitable month of my life and soo close ALOT more.

I don't know how long this run will last but it sure is exciting. I have a few option plays that could take it over the top, we'll see what happens next week.

Dipped back in on a upswing today attempting to make some quick money. Was up 1500 then came away 2k lighter. I get burned just about every time I try to day trade.
Usually like this. Make a few bucks. Go back to try for more and come away a little bruised and battered.

It would be trying to catch a falling knife right now, there is no established support.

There are much more attractive plays right now.

To those with money on the sidelines, you’re literally sitting on your hands as others make hay right now.

And I’m not talking about day trading and I’m certainly not talking about high risk plays like GME.

Look at the chart of your total portfolio since last March 2020. Major climb from March 2020 through November 2020. Then in November 2020, the portfolio begins to climb at an even steeper rate.

The number of strong positive days has been greater than the bad ones for me since those moments in time.

5 figure gains. I’ve have several this year already and most recently yesterday. I handle my own portfolio. I do not day trade. I have a mixture of ETF, Mutual Funds, and Stocks. I also have a side play in crypto currencies. My crypto bag alone is over 100% gain. I trust my crypto positions more than a risky GME play. I’d rather play crypto volatility than GME.

I’m not an expert but the market is so good right now that I feel like I know what I’m doing. But I know better than that and I manage my risk with good decisions and I keep my emotions in check.

If you’re sitting on the sidelines, get yourself a professional to help you or do it yourself. If I can be successful, a professional investment advisor should beat my sox off.

Note: I fired Morgan Stanley and went at it alone for the past 4 years. I’m doing better on my own. Your mileage will vary.

That's awesome Habanero. I've trounced my old advisor also.

55% overall in the last 12 months. Double to triple market returns each of the last 5 years managing my accounts. I sometimes gamble stuff like GME for fun. Sometimes I win. Lots of times I lose. More fun for me than sports bets and nothing I can not afford to play with.

I've also diversified into hill country waterfront real estate the last 4 years and have been really blessed by location, market and the timing.
First vacation property has doubled in value since 2017 and is paid for by renters in just 7 weeks of the year.

The second build is in progress and will have 350-400k equity when completed, and rising daily. That will be paid by rentals also - about 8 weeks each year- and I'll retire to that place in 5 yrs unless I build another that I like better before then. It's been an epic land rush in the Hill Country and growth rates have never been higher. Snowballing more each day. The last few months have been greater than any time previously. I'm glad I got my foot in the door. I like the recreation and diversification.

Great job on the vacation property gigs. I’ve considered land and properties but never got there. I know a guy with a side hustle of properties and renters. He’s grown to over 10 houses and his side hustle is very strong. It comes down to good choices and having a dedicated network of small dependable repair guys that he can call. Electrical, painting, carpentry, etc. He’s a CPA and anal with money and it works really well for him.

DeFi is coming to the commercial world real soon. It will show up as a new company with a catchy name touting a new way to finance or borrow or even lend money. Most people won’t realize that underneath the covers will be a blockchain technology. Major capital is focused there right now to develop industry disrupting concepts in the world of finance. Some of the concepts are even brand new....like Staking and Yield Farming.

I read this morning that Coinbase is going to give their current customers first crack at their IPO release. I want more details as I’m on Coinbase.

That DeFi DeFi-nitely sounds too complex for my little brain.

Yes on the Coinbase IPO. Just threw a little bit of money into my dormant account to hopefully get the early head's up. I researched yesterday a but. FTX is a place to buy pre IPO but again, hard to wrap my brain around. I'll probably wait until it hits the NASDAQ and I am a believer in this IPO.

On the rentals- I just pay a really great management company who charges 20% but is tremendously on point with marketing, cleaning, repairs, and just the whole shebang. Best in the area and really pleased with them.
The key for my model is supply and demand. The Hill Country is just insanity. I rent my first place for $1100 per night. Next place much more exclusive new neighborhood will be closer to $2000 per night. Hard to not be cashflow positive with those crazy rates.

New Braunfels, Wimberly, Fredericksburg, now Llano area have just exploded. More by the day. I wish I'd have had more money and the vision 10 yrs ago, but so far no signs of slowing. In fact, seems to be snowballing more even in the last 3 months. I missed out on some ranches in Llano recently. After I digest my current build I think I may take a stab at preserving some dirt for future generations if I can afford it when I'm ready. Something like this I think has doubled in a few years and will again in a few more yrs. https://www.landandfarm.com/property/91_AC_The_Rock_Ranch_0_5_miles_from_Enchanted_Rock_-11925912/

Everything radiating out from Austin is like a land rush. I'm obsessed. Down side of a ranch for me is far less if any rental opportunity to float the carrying costs. Need more money!

I am at 57.25% growth of my portfolio. I have been in 3 triple baggers. I have missed several even bigger that I bailed early on. This has been one of my best stretches of all time.

I am trying to diversify into some more real estate and start another business.

No crypto plays for me, I have thought about it but I consider myself more of a technical/value investor and focus more on stock charts.

Without a doubt, the same for me too.

EV. Weed. Crypto. Emerging Technologies. Small Cap Growth. Russell 1000. All of them are tearing a new one. Individual stocks, ETFs, or Mutual Funds in those areas. You look forward to waking up each morning. It is crazy good right now.

I hope the professional investment advisers are making a killing for you guys. If they’re not, you should fire them immediately.

Watch the daily activity on this list of DeFi alts for 5 days. Research the price action of the last month on them. It may motivate you to think differently.

There’s acre of surface busting bluefin tuna happening right under your nose. It’s there for the taking. You must have a line in the water and not be scared of the volatile bite...or the sleigh ride. :)

Trading bots. I’m learning about them and it appears that I can build and deploy a real trading bot in the crypto world. All of this has suddenly become more interesting for me. My little brain is buzzing.
