So I created an eBay account a month ago or so. Tried to sell 2 items, and none of them sold.
Now I want to change my user ID (because the one I chose sucks), and buy some stuff to get lots of positive feedback to get sales.
Should I just close my eBay account and create a new one? Can I use the same PayPal for a new account?
Does anyone even look at the names? Just get some feedback as a buyer, cut your prices temporarily to below cost to get some seller feedback, and gradually raise prices as the 'positives' accumulate.
I just use whatever random shit they gave me. eBay is one of those almost perfect knowledge markets where the only thing that seems to matter is price and terms, unless you are selling unique stuff.
I want to get into collecting. What's the most profitable item to collect? Various coins? Bills? Postal marks?
What should one absolutely know before getting into collecting?
I collect coins.
If you're collecting, it should be because you have tons of disposable income, and you like the stuff you collect, not because you want to make money off it
Although, for the record, mark cuban says he made all the money he used to start broadcast.com buying and selling rare stamps
> "special edition"
> "collector's edition"
> anything with limited production
Coins & stamps are your Beanie Babies; everyone is doing it.
That isn't to say it's not profitable, but only if you truly know what you're doing and what you're looking for.
Russia ? is there any way to get rich of the country ? Is it worth looking at ?
only legal things, nothing with corruption or crime.
I'm just curious, not actually "going to get rich of your advice"

Well, you learned a lesson.
You drill for oil before you build an oil well.
You should have calculated all this stuff, cost of goods, overheard, cost of customer acquisition THEN you make an app and a website.
Before you spend money, DRILL!
Example: Costs $X to drill for oil. Costs 10000X to build oil well.
So we DRILL THEN WE BUILD
Is renting a house one of those bad idea money traps like leasing a car?
Yes and no.
Yes, it's better to get a mortgage, or better yet, buy the house outright.
But not everyone has the credit score to get a mortgage, or the cash to buy a $200,000 house outright.
Renting is done by poor and rich people- rich people, sell their $ 2 million house, and rent a $2 million house for a year or two, because they are hoping the housing prices will collapse and they can buy it back in a year for 1.5 million$.
Poor people rent because they don't like being homeless
I know this is a decent primer on investing in general, but what about stocks? Is there a more appropriate read?
Can anyone here recommend me a good book about financial statements?
If I wanted to buy 4chan.
How much would it cost to uncuck this place?
Why do you keep saying that daytrading is a losers game?
because there are firms that hire teams of phds who dedicate their lives to using advanced statistical models to eat day traders alive
because the market makers do the same and spend their time thinking about ways to cum in the fishes mouths
I know because I've worked at both
you cant trade short term solo anymore, you can ONLY invest long term based on business fundamentals
if somebody succeeds its because they did it in a bull market where everybody is making cash, or because if...

So I lost just over 11% on my portfolio over January, how did everyone else fair?
What are peoples opinions on purchasing new stocks in order to bring average cost prices down this month or waiting out for commodity prices and other stuff to settle down.
Im in Australia trading mainly on ASX if that helps.
Up 60% from shorting oil, the canadian dollar, the australian stock index, and longing gold and the JPY.
I was actually up 90% before russia started talking about meeting up with the saudis on oil which made me take a 30% loss or so from holding on too long to a Canadian dollar short.

We are the loser generation, our deeds will be sung in the epics of the generations after us. We are the ones bend over to religious radicals and swallow their jizz, their victory brought upon the age of ignorance and oppression.

Unless you have terminal cancer you have a decent chance of seeing some of this stuff. Remember that tech growth is approximately exponential and even wars, recessions etc can't put the brakes on it for too long.
Also, how could we have a global Islamic caliphate when they don't even browse /biz/.
>have two credit cards
>mobile apps for both offer free credit scores from TransUnion
>both give me two different fucking scores
Discover It tells my score is 775 while Crapital One tells me its 730 even though they both report TransUnion scores.
They might both use a different scoring system. If you're talking about Credit Tracker with Cap One - I don't think TransUnion provides the score. They just pull it off of that report. Cap One uses their own scoring system to come up with the score but I know for sure it's not FICO. Read the fine print it tells you. Been a while since I've logged in and looked.
The credit reporting companies sell scores based on different metrics. They've got many, many scores they sell. There are like 15 FICO models, and milliions of Plus Scores, vantage scores, and other Supah uselss Scores.
Plus and Vantage are consumer facing upsells,
Some CC's are offering monthy FICO Scores, and myFico are the places to get them.
Does anon have any ideas about how to hypothetically invest untaxed income (paper money/bitcoins) so that the IRS can't find out about it?
Preferably something beyond hoarding gold and silver in your hypothetical basement or diverting it through a legit business and paying taxes on it that way.
>clearly a dead cat bounce bruv
You know. There is probably some argument to be made for turning on every indicator and buying or selling based purely on if the majority of the lines end above or below the current price.
Wonder how well that would go. Half tempted to try it.
Bank of Japan just did it.
We're entering uncharted waters boys. Smarter men then me, provide us with an education.
What does this mean lmao, does it mean that if you have money in the bank they start taking money away from you
You already have a job, new iMac, 6+hours of free time and internet.
