Market should be open today. It’s not Christmas. 

Listen here, you choads: the stock market never closes for two straight days.  You'll get a half-day on Xmas Eve and the day after Thanksgiving, but that's as close as Wall Street gets to a lengthy holiday.  Which means you when balloonheads are whooping it up at home for a week off at Xmas, Ol GM is slaving away at the sweat shop.  So give me my President's Day, my MLK Day and my Good Freaking Friday, thank you very little.  Now go outside and play.

Went to the park and almost (accidentally) took my wife’s head off with a soccer shot when her and my kid were playing goal against my penalty shot. So I won’t be scoring any other goals today.

Freezing rain and ice across the south.

I hear the north is kind of cold too.

Came here to post something like this. A good day to make sure your stop/loss orders and overall allocations are where you want them. Boring...

I actually went through my holdings by allocation this morning (I do this maybe 3x a year) and completed our taxes. 

I'm not sure if 16% specific tech plays is too tech heavy but it's up a lot from October. And that's not including the holdings in broad market funds.  I'm not too far out of tolerance otherwise.

Futures looking very green, can at least watch those today.

Do they have AH tonight as well? I don’t think I ever paid attention to the night of an off day but I’d think there’d have to be some trading going on to change futures.

Futures will be on tonight but not any regular AH market trading.

How do they do futures? Is it options/contract trading and not based on the stocks that make up the indexes? I guess I always assumed some of the latter but the AH trading is always so erratic and is sometimes completely opposite the next day.

Either way, definitely glad I didn’t trim a lot. I did sell some stuff but bought other stocks in their place. Don’t have much cash in my IRAs, just about 20% (usually had 10%+ in all accounts but bought more in IRAs recently.

Open a TD Ameritrade account and will buy my very first stocks tomorrow. I've been reading through this thread and the penny stock thread to get a list of what might be good stocks to get into.  I am a complete Noob at this stuff (I've always just put into my Roth every month.) But my wife bought some weed stock on Robinhood a couple weeks ago and now I kinda have the itch. So does anyone have any advice for a fellow FBG with a little disposable income and some time on his hands? I would take any advice i can get either here or through a PM... thanks!

I checked through my accounts today, February so far has been quite nice. It's very tempting to take some gains off the table but with more stimulus coming i just can't see selling off now.

Yeah I gave in to the temptation a little bit, probably stupidly.  I took the last 50 shares of my TSLA swing trade and a whole bunch of ABNB off on Friday and that looks like it may end up being a ton of lost opportunity cost.

Wow I just realized MARA has 3 employees.  Maybe I'll just suck it up and start trading BTC itself more often rather than playing with that fire.

Maybe they need a 4th?

Lol. I said that in the BTC thread, I think, hard to remember. I looked up some other miner and the number of employees was 1. When stocks like that are selling at huge premiums there is a huge assumption that these are real companies with great business ideas rather than a couple dudes with a bunch of racks of hardware. That dogecoin article was truly eye opening when the two guys seemed to wake up to the price increase stating that they need to make some updates since it hadn’t been touched in two years.

I’m already seeing the rush / FOMO among friends, co-workers for planning stuff in the late summer fall.

I think you're right.

Of course I wonder how many people will sell stocks to pay for these experiences.

We already booked our October vacation (actually back in November). I'm glad we did, although it might be busier this year. 

Now we're looking to book a house near Gatlinburg this summer or just after school gets out.  And I promised my 18yo I'd take him to new Orleans.

Currently reading "happy money" which discusses the value of experiences and how much sweeter they are when we've either been deprived or when we know they're coming to an end.

Start slow and learn the emotions that come with this. Have realistic expectations and realize that you are learning. Don't let a winning day turn into a losing day...take your profits! Go for singles not home runs.

All this.

You don't state the rest of your circumstances. Is this only going to be money you can lose and feel okay? Is it more than 5% of your total investments? What's in your IRA? 

A few of us get a little concerned when someone new starts with Penny stocks. If it's a very small amount of your portfolio, have fun with it and learn along the way. 

I forget who said it but it makes sense to me, assume any Penny or speculative stock you buy is money you're not getting back. When you do get a return, enjoy it and move on. If its lost, you already planned for that. I'm far more conservative than many here, but enjoy a win every so often.

This will all be money I have no problem losing... My retirement plan is solid so this is just a new way of spending my casino money. I have been looking at some penny stocks though. Not a good way to get started?

Looking at getting into a few of the following...

WDLF

VPER

XMET

DPLS

GTEH

LTNC

HQGE

INTV

Any of these safer than another or are they all just lotto tickets? Thanks for the feedback.

For sure people will take money out for various reasons but the market is going to cook. That money people will take out will go into the economy which will continue to fuel other businesses, confidence, etc. 

 

Ironically we are discussing Gatlinburg too. Stayed there a few years ago, gorgeous mountains.

It sounds like you have the right idea. 

I honestly don't know any of those companies. But I do want to hear from others who use Penny stocks more than I do. My only cheap stocks right now are RLFTF, HVCW, SAENF, HITIF and SFIO. SAENF is the only one with more than the price of a decent weekend trip.

I would start with this thread and stay away from pennies at first.

Relevant to this thread Gatlinburg is a crazy good investment area right now too.

We were actually under contract on a nice big cabin there last June but it fell through during the inspection when they told us it was kind of falling off the mountain and would cost an extra 200k to shore up. 😮

I was really bummed at the time but the 60k down payment we got back is probably worth double that after putting it back into the market.

Of course the cabin is probably worth double as well :kicksrock:

I've been to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.  Other than the few overt, examples of racism and odd amount of down syndrome folks there, I really liked Tennessee.

Ah yea gonna be the best time to be single in recorded history. 

My advice to you is to start immediately, but subtly, suggesting to your wife that she should follow up on those desires for sapphic touch. By the time you get vaccinated you're going to be having non-stop MMFs.

We're still trying to sell 7 acres just 3 hours west of Gatlinburg. Hilltop. No cabin there yet to fall into the hillside.
