I sold everything today. I'll pick it up after it crashes next week.
Same here for non retirement investing. Sold everything except for company stock I can’t sell and Microsoft. Plan on putting a decent chunk of money in assuming we get a good dip next week.
Could very well happen, but who knows. But you're safe either way for the next dip.
And now is time for the end of day and end of week sell off.
Finally picked a winner in OMI, up 56% today. Now just need it to go up another 150% to recoup my total loss in MDR.
I don't understand this market at all, we are heading into a depression with double digit unemployment, and people are buying? This is not ending in the next few weeks.
I understand this sentiment for people who can’t afford risk, but others who are able to, see a huge opportunity. It really comes down to that. I’m hoping everyone in here who are buying up left and right have the cushion to supply themselves or families should they lose their jobs. This isn’t a game, it requires intelligent risk.
I think if you can afford some short term (6-8 months) of an ass kicking any travel stocks are probably a really good buy right now. It's just a matter of timing out the bottom and riding this thing out.
If you're trading based on the current/near-term situation, you're way behind.
I understand the spirit of what your saying.
I think the market is hoping/looking at all the hopeful “game changing” instant test and antibodies test coming out and betting they’ll greatly help/give investors/traders a path forward by mid May.
I think that’s where today’s current optimism is coming from. I’m just speculating though.
I think most of it is from, seeing what countries in front of us have went through. With the exception of Italy, the rest have started to improve and the idea is that in 2-4 that we should be back and starting to roll. Places like NY say they should peak in about 2 weeks which means in another month that they should be on the downhill slide.
This is not over, a whole lot more going on than just the virus... Think we turn down hard one more time.
And it’s been real boring for a long time. There hasn’t been such an obvious money making opportunity in the markets in forever.
Does anyone thing now may be the time to put some limit buy orders? I'm afraid I missed buying opportunity when the Dow was below 20k, so I want to protect myself when stocks start to go up.
I have been averaging in. I think it would work. Depends on the stocks also.
This would be for an IRA, so I'm willing to be more patient.
The stocks I'm looking at are oracle and Texas instruments. Reason being is I need to add more tech stocks to my portfolio that are dividend paying and increasing the dividend.
Although I'm open to some suggestions.
I think you will be fine then. Just realize dividends won’t be pretty this year for any company.
Fine to buy now, wait, or put in buy limits some % above today's price?
I would buy now but put limits below a price. You put them above and you might as well just buy since that is what you will be doing.
