I own some Apple Stock and am looking for a few other stocks before the holidays kick in. Anyone else dabble in the stock market? Any day traders? It gives the everyday bodybuilder a very nice salary. What are your picks for the holidays?

WTF is a stop sell?  It's called a stop loss you tool.  Know what you are talking about before you post here or I will come to your parents basement and disconnect your cable modem.

They are cheap for a reason.  They are gambling stocks, not trading stocks.

Pump and dump baby

Not to be a dick to OP but buying "apple" stock just because the holiday season is coming up is not a good reason to buy the stock.  There are a lot of other factors that cause a stock to go up and down.  With that same logic you would buy stock in candy companies before halloween comes around, and companies that manufacture sweaters before winter comes around.  Thats just not how it works bro.   Roll Eyes

Gee, the SEC seems to know what a sell stop is:

Too bad you don't, "tool".   Roll Eyes


You do seem to know a lot about using "modems" from your parents basement, though.  Roll Eyes

So does that mean I should give back the $1500 I made when I sold after it hit $196 on Tuesday right before the Fed anouncement?  Undecided

Assuming you bought aapl more than six months ago, sell it....you should realize some of your gains before the holiday volatility sets in....You don't want to buy stock before the holidays; it's a terrible idea (particularly in today's market)...Wait until the end of January...hope this helps

Selling AAPL or any stock just because the Holidays are coming or it hits a certain price or what ever makes no sense.  You miss some of the best moves that way.  BTW AAPL is in a strong uptrend on the daily and weekly charts.  Is it a little over extended?  Who knows.  Sometimes a chart that looks like this will go on to make emormous gains before finally pulling back.


As a rule, yes, aapl is gonna have some corrections however.  That trend cannot continue without some.  Your philosophy is clearly long term.  Mid-term or swing traders like me have been making just as much money in aapl over the last year and a half but without as much of the risk.  The stock has been textbook  using simple techniques of analysis like RSI...
Figure out a plan for exiting (like a trailing stop) before you enter a trade, and stick to it 100% of the time.  Otherwise you will start doing counter productive things like dollar counting and you will lose money over time, guaranteed.

Good advice

It's prudent to ask for investment advice on a bodybuilding forum.  Roll Eyes
yes, clearly because anyone with an interest in bodybuilding must be stupid as hell with no knowledge outside lifting iron.  Excellent advice, this board clearly is not made up of people from all walks.
