So I have been looking online for a while for a nice, simple guide but even I can tell that half of the shit that I can read is complete bullshit. Are there any good books or something that I can read to learn about stocks? Literally have no clue how any of this shit works.
So I had a thought. Is it worth buying shares of a failing company with the intent of losing money just to stay within a lower tax bracket? Obviously you have to be at a specific amount to be able to do this.
In a few days, after taxes and fees are paid, Im getting around 800000. Last month I had a meeting with a few financial planners before deciding on one. My main questions were about the looming crash. The one I went with told me they hadn't lost a single customer in the 2008 crash, but most of their clients are retirees who would probably die from the effort of finding a new planner.
I'm scared /biz/. The crash is imminent and I don't want to lose just as I'm getting into the game. Do I hold off til the market bottoms out, do... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
How much do you save for retirement? I graduated late (24) and didn't start maxing out my 401K and Roth IRA each year until I was 26, because I was a dumb ass. I just turned 27 last week and I currently have $47K in mutual funds. I'm trying to avoid being screwed like most millennials my generation.
>>984091 I am currently an accountant at a large corporation with a $70K salary. My parents own a rental property close to my office and I help them manage and rent it out. In return I don't have to pay rent. I currently save about 25% of my pretax income to max out my 401K ($18,000) and make a one time contribution each year for my Roth IRA ($5,500) after receiving my annual bonus.
I am making a trading plan for trading stocks for the medium to a longer term (1 week minimum to 6~9 months for the longest trades)
Right now its just a rough draft with a few overall guidelines that I want to quantify and get more detailed with later but it looks something like this:
Overall I want to Trade companies that are "green" (at least appear so to the public and the information found online) and or environmentally sustainable Use financial and business model analysis to choose which companies are good buys and which aren't.

Just trade options and bet on volatility. If you expect a big movement in a stock but don't know which direction, then use a Straddle. I've been doing this on demo ThinkOrSwim for the past couple years while at work trading Straddles on oil futures 2-3 months out. Have made 81% return in these 2 years.
>>983862 bumping for interest but I haven't studied much Japanese economic policy.All I know is that some CEO from Morgan Stanely gave a lecture at my school and talked about how as a society they are so much better at saving money... Also they have some of the safest bonds in the world, and 0% interest. which is redic imo
Been using a demo account to day trade, my strategy consist of minimal risk using trends. When my stock is £250 up I put stop loss on at £180 so all my trades are successful. I turned £300 into 1k a day. Is it really this easy?
Let's post some things we do regularly to get us closer to success, /biz/nessmen.
>Brush teeth for 2 minutes, twice a day >Floss everyday >Drink at least 3-4 liters of water >Lift weights or at least do regular cardio >Take fishoil, ZMA, etc supplements >Use a gentle cleanser twice a day and moisturize our face daily >Shower every day(preferably...

What are some products that consumer who value their money should avoid like the plague, either because the profit margins are enormous, or the cut costs are so terrible the product is effectively worthless?
Only two I can think off the top of my head are fountain drinks and bottled water.
A local burger joint sells fountain drinks for $2.25, but puts avocado on your burger for $.75 and grilled onions for $1.50. Plus, for $2.25 at a grocery store, you can easily get 2-4 liters of soda.
Bottled water is a given, so I refuse to explain it.
Is actuary a good career move? Anyone here who is an actual actuary or trying to be one? How hard is it to become one? And how hard is the job afterwards? Is there a lot of uncertainty or stress that can cause anxiety? Also, is it better than accounting?
