Jiz and yourself were made to look terrible tonight.   Come on man.   Obama lookd so bad tonight it is was beyond words bad 
I think he intentionally played it safe. Sure he didn't do well but he could afford that according to intrade. I'm sure his political team advised him to play it safe as he has the election in the bag (up to this point in time).

Better than going off the script and slipping up.

The guy was talented, no doubt about it. His music touched you in a way 99% of artists aren't capable of.

I don't agree with his lifestyle but everyone takes their own path. He was a man of extremes, his lyrics portray that.

Ew!  Would not want a boat like that.  Too big and too ugly.  Sad

I'm too hands on to want a boat that requires a crew.  If I can't pilot it myself or dock it in my back yard, it would not appeal to me.  For me, the joy of boating is piloting the craft and sharing the experience with a handful of friends.  Good food, wine, and navigating the waters.  Cool
2x the Wally line looks terrible. The largest model looks like a bathtub

I am a fundamental trader.  I am not as anal as it would require to do technical trading.


P.S. I am not too fond of technical traders, I find that a lot of their tactics are bullshit sprinkled with heavy chart and regression analysis.
You're able to day trade off fundamentals or are you strictly longer term holds?

It's an art form. Not for everyone, but without I could not navigate the market
38  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / Re: Only open if you are Getbig Financial Elite... on: July 26, 2012, 02:46:22 PM
I am currently a trader at a boutique hedge fund. 

Aside from my day job, my family and I are largely vested in the realm of accounting, whereby we own a few offices that service small-medium sized local business.  Like that of an H&R block, we have a small number of offices scattered throughout the NYC area that serve many local Israeli & Greek businesses (a large number of diners, hardware stores, Jewelry shops, fabric shops, supermarkets, liquor stores etc.).

I won't claim to be some rich tycoon with the world in his palm.  On the contrary, I am just a hardworking individual who has been blessed with good fortune throughout life and played it very safe when it came to money.  I am also very blessed in having a great husband who is highly ambitious as well.


Technical trader?
39  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: STOCKS, NYSE, NASDAQ - Are you making money like a big boss? on: July 21, 2012, 02:07:27 PM
I see what you are saying, but I don't take it quite that far.  I look at trading securities like I would look at trading junk from yard sales. 

Let's say, for example, that I find an old hammer at a yard sale.  I buy it for a dollar, and the next week, I have a yard sale of my own and sell it for two dollars.  100% profit.

Obviously, trading securities is more complicated that this; I'm just sharing the underlying principle.  Most of these "day trader" types do no research and operate on "hunches" (or "press releases" from pump and dump machines), while trying to earn $1MM off of a single $5 penny stock purchase.  If they focused on finding undervalued securities and taking 10-20% gains (after commissions and taxes), they would do far better.  A 10% gain in a month equates to a 120% annual return but too many people want to double their money every five minutes and that unrealistic goal leads to poor trading decisions.

Again, I'm not discounting what you mention about possible corruptions in the market, I'm just saying that wise trading is not gambling in the truest sense of the word.

And to make this post bodybuilding related...

Any day trader who trades on "hunches" will blow up his account fast. If you don't put the research in or know how to read charts you will not be successful. This is a very competitive and unforgiving industry. Most hedge funds don't make 10% in a year, let alone 120% returns.

I'm not a trader but I know a volatile market especially with the euro countries, it kills us. Example is the day before we were NYSE was up today it's down -120. We've taken a huge hit in our mutual funds and 401k. I'm not a big risk taker.
We've only seen a 11% correction to date, most of that has been recovered.

There has been some massive blow ups on individual stocks: TPX, RAX, CMG, NFLX, WYNN, GMCR, LVS, IBM, INTC, SNDK

Same thing happened last year, the market rallied up on low volume going into options exp (ended this week). After options exp things got really ugly. I expect the same result this yr and would not be surprised to see a repeat of 2008.  

Protect your profits, put stop losses in so you're positions aren't underwater. You can always buy back at the lows.
41  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: STOCKS, NYSE, NASDAQ - Are you making money like a big boss? on: July 20, 2012, 05:26:10 PM
I am half trader, half investor.  

Through careful study, one can (not necessarily will, but can) make money in any market condition.  Not that I always succeed (I have gotten killed the last couple days on CHK, which I am long on) but I win more than I lose.
Technicals or fundamentals?

The first 10mins is total madness, plenty of time for the guy to escape. Imagine this happened at multiple locations across a city, I don't think local police or rescue could handle it. Sounded like every single unit in town was at that location
43  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: STOCKS, NYSE, NASDAQ - Are you making money like a big boss? on: July 20, 2012, 01:24:30 PM
You'd have to be semi-retarded not to. Sorry man. You're wrong. Want me to go into it with a rant?
What would you invest in right now?

Until the market sees a significant correction you should not be buying long term investments. I'm a trader btw so I would love to talk shop lol

49  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: City workers wages slashed in Scranton, Pennsylvania on: July 10, 2012, 07:16:31 AM
Well,  I don't live in Scranton, PA.. but I do live in Pennsylvania, and from my experience unions have a MASSIVE stranglehold on this state and public workers are vastly overpaid for their skill levels. I know teachers making $75k a year and garbage men with a high school degree making over $55k. I should mention the cost of living in PA is generally very low, outside of Philly too. So this is a lot of money.
Good to know
50  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / City workers wages slashed in Scranton, Pennsylvania on: July 09, 2012, 10:28:46 PM
"Firefighters, police and other public workers in a Pennsylvania city saw their wages slashed to minimum wage rates on Friday, in a move by the cash-strapped city to balance its budget, city officials said.

Scranton's public workers would be paid $7.25 an hour "indefinitely" starting with Friday's paychecks as part of a plan initiated by the mayor, Chris Doherty."

Any of you guys live in Scranton?

Next up Cali, NJ, etc.
