    Man, it's your and your families future well being and to depend on a bunch of randos? Good grief.

    Fair enough.
    I had a prof in my financial management masters program. He asked us to pick a stock, analyze it, and make a recommendation. Someone asked him, "Do you ever buy any of the stocks recommended?" His answer? "Not without doing my own analysis." And this guy had a PhD from U of I Champaign Urbana in finance. Get someone who knows what they're doing when you're positioning your money. Just sayin'.

    Who the fck are you and why should I give two shts what you think? The only reason I'm here is because you made an ass of yourself a few hours ago and I wanted to see if you are as stupid as you appear. You've answered that so thanks.

      Any financial adviser that I could afford knows less than I do (at least regarding my specific situation). I have 2 finance degrees and 20 years in corporate finance. Not bragging. More pointing out that I don't have a clue most of the time and the last 10+ years have been unpredictable and unprecedented. I think my book knowledge has actually hurt me more than helped me.

      They are just throwing darts too if they are anything like me.

      Like minded people who read and post in a financial forum are not a bad source of knowledge. Certainly a good place to hear some other views and then formulate your own plan...

        What the fuch.... it's just a handful of us bouncing ideas and stories on several topics. Nobody here gives advice. It's just a conversation. If you dont like it or want to read any of it.... why barge in here and throw shade on your very first post in this entire section?

          No surprise, the equity markets don't care much about Afghanistan. The question is whether this increases the likelihood of a true Black Swan event (China invading Taiwan, Russia going into the Ukraine, or even a large domestic terrorist attack). Or another possibility is that Biden is now so tainted and tarnished that the powers that be use this window as a chance to create more chaos or manipulate the markets (stop propping up the stock market, Fed intervention, etc.) to get a clean slate before installing Kameltoe. Clearly the Bidens care most about getting paid, regardless of their legacy. A perfect escape goat.....

            This may be the start....weird stuff. Nobody has really made any money since the senile dipsh!t and his merry cast of commies have taken over...now Afghan and Taiwan...private companies investing in mass gold....something is not right. 10yr goes down and NASDAQ loses....goes back up the next day Value/banking/energy still lose or don't move...something is not right folks....

              I am not totally disagreeing, but it is not totally correct to say that no one has made any money. I am not that extravagant in my investments, but there is money to be made. The problem is, IMO, is that many are just using ETF's or just buying/shorting certain groups or indexes. And as I have said you can't time the markets, but you can time your entry and exit points. You have to look beyond what used to work. The NASDAQ does not need lower rates to rise anymore. That is over. Rates a 1.20 or 1.40 does not matter. There is only so much blood in a turnip. The indexes have more than doubled in 15 months but the indexes are controlled by less than 10 stocks give or take.

              Exactly...hell 80% of the S&P 500 is below the 50 day moving average....all this stuff over the last 8 month's is basically like sideways chop though no real sustained growth like when Trump was in(minus half of 2018)...all you had to do was throw money in an S&P 500 or large cap ETF and sit back and watch 16-18% returns....gold went up, silver went up, bonds went up(minus yields) everything was working except fixed income but that road has been closing for 15 years now....This sh!t suck balls and it's because there is no clear direction. We actually have deflationary money movement and double digit true consumer inflation...WTF..

                  That is interesting situation. I am not certain what I think of it yet. You pay good money and get a degree from a school…. Then it goes out of business and your degree is worthless.

                  That's the thing. The article says they did not finish their degrees. Perhaps they were on the Blutarsky Plan.
