lesson I'm learning:  if the healthcare guy eats crap on the health care stocks, probably not a great idea to try and pick em.

I had ARKG for like 4 days until I looked and saw that ARKK basically had most of the names and I already owned IBB and XBI.  I like SMH though.  If you are looking for exposure to those types of things I would consider just owning ARKK instead of all 3.

ARKK is ripe for a beating IMO, a lot of the holdings have taken a bath in the last week but man what a year it’s had.

I don’t disagree, I was late to the party but still was up like 50% on it. So I have a stop in on it.

But the amount of overlap in all of those names is pretty big.

I am getting absolutely hammered this week. First time I've had anything remotely like this before!

DJIA +1.1%
S&P +1.3%
chum1 -25%

Seem to have bottomed out at -35% (including Monday) about an hour ago. Free fall in the first hour of trading. I was starting to ask myself if I should consider throwing in the towel and selling off everything.

Recovered to 83% of pre hammering this week. Almost all yesterday. So weird.

For the record, I am an idiot and was frazzled, but I WAY overstated the losses. That was a percentage of the amount invested at that time, which was less than half of the account balance. Rest was cash.

Ya everyone’s assuming the new regime will have the moderate flavors that markets crave (and huge spending on infrastructure of course!)

Well, get off your ass and find Jack Ma. His disappearance is the cause for this.

Maybe you aren't a regular CNBC viewer(and that's fine) but today his capacity was different than it normally is.
