Alright, /biz/, wanting to get into stocks and play around a bit. I know nothing about it so could you guys tell me what I need to know? How they are taxed, where to start, can I do it easily on my computer and phone? Any info helps!
If you're an amateur with little capital, you're bound to lose your money. Buy into Vanguard or any wide spread market ETF. They're taxed accordingly depending on where you live, capital gains tax. Yes, you can easily do it from home, some brokers have apps for mobile devices as well. Generally, read the Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham, the fourth edition edited by Jason Zweig. Also, Business Adventures and maybe Bogle's Small Book on Investing. Generally, spend time preparing and educating yourself, on investopedia, bogleheads etc.... Comment too long.

>>1028156 Yeah it's a ponzi scheme and it's not real, but I'm not going to let my memes be dreams. I'm long too, but it seems like it's on shaky ground. The only thing propping it up atm is probably global market turmoil because it has been falling.
I started an academic exchange which allows college level students and tutors to connect on a safe, secure, and anonymous, website. The website allows students to post assignments they have no desire to do or aren't very good at and receive help for a fee, it also allows students to play the role of the tutor in helping peers finish assignments that they are skilled in to earn an income. How & where should I advertise something like this ?
>>1028124 I like this idea OP, however I think you'll have an imbalance of way more students asking for help than tutors. Maybe offer successful tutors compensation in some way? Have a very thorough rating and review system to prevent shitty tutors and keep quality high
create a clearly controversial dating platform, fill it with bots and automated fake accounts so it appears populated (obv 80% of those accounts are believably sexy females), do minimal promotion and marketing, once controversy reaches you, the site will explode in popularity. controversy can also be stirred by you, simply by tipping off social justice warrior subreddits and maybe smaller news blogs and stuff, then watch the outburst snowball, and your traffic blow up.

I'm saving to buy a home. Income is $160k, student debt $45k at <3% interest.
I'm sitting on $30k in my savings account. I wanted to open a vanguard index fund account but was expecting a shemitah disaster because I believed the retards on pol.
What would you do in my situation? I want to put down $80k on the house. Won't need the $30k until 2017. We're capable of saving about $3k or $4k a month but work is less stable than in most industries (could get fired and forced to move to another city on short notice) and we have kids
Worth the risk right now? The market looks like a2008 bubble to me and I don't want to get fucked on the house or a general market crash on an index fund
Please forgive any stupidity I may be revealing, I a
Design and IT. The design job brings the money but the work is mostly in LA and NYC which we aren't in. We'd have to pack up and move if that job fell off, which will probably happen in the next ten years
Yes I'm dumb for believing shemitah but fed rates at zero for seven years.... The market looks like it's going to implode to me
A lot of classes at major universities are so large (60-250 students) that many of the teachers don't even bother with attendance.
Is it possible to just show up to a university (that you do not go to) and attend a class (that you are not enrolled in) and just hang out for the lectures and actually learn the material? I know some classes have online material that you need to be enrolled in to have access to (powerpoints, exams, etc) but if you just stuck around the lecture to solely learn the subject matter (and maybe even take an exam or two as a guest test taker)...

When I went to college for IT, the Business school was in the next building over from a couple of my classes and I sat in on a couple of economics classes. I was at a small Community College, tho, and a few students eventually asked me who I was - they thought I was there to evaluate the prof or something. After I told them I was just sitting in to learn, the prof came to me and said I could stay if I just kept in the background and didn't let everyone know (apparently the college views someone sitting in class without paying for it as a loss and doesn't like professors allowing it)
>>1027935 Most things that make retail banks money are things that you really need. So if you really need them you will work around your schedule to accomodate theirs. This reduces money draining servicing that can be done at ATMs or online. Also it's a bank, they don't give a fuck about how you feel about their hours.
Develop a business relationship with a (non-entry-level) bank employee and you can call them on their cell phone at 8 PM and get a loan. My dad wanted to buy a truck from a guy off craigslist a while back and his night shift schedule forced him to meet the guy and look at the truck at 8 PM. He called his banker at 7 on the way to see the truck and his banker said "Write a check for however much the truck is and we'll make sure it goes through and we'll get you a lower interest rate than what anyone else will give you."
