Non-Political Market/Economy/Finance/etc. Thread
« on: October 01, 2021, 08:22:46 PM »
Master thread to discuss all the stuff in the title. Didn't feel like this was for the beginning investor thread and I don't know that we have an alternate.

it's wild that these people can trade on this stuff while Martha Stewart goes to jail for a year for whatever she did.

that is wild

I assume the revisions will still be big and these numbers are going to look less weird over time as they are revised.

Love this and I give this thread a negative 47 billion percent chance of not getting political.

We haven’t really had a strong economy paired with bad stock market in my adult life that I recall. Feels weird.

So what do you guys read/how do you collect info and read up on stuff other than just having a knowledge of the markets and what not?  I only hold about 3 positions in a Roth IRA.  I have my retirement index funds thing.  But how do y'all get knowledge and stuff?  I'd like stuff to read as part of my daily routine.  Like, right now, I make coffee, let my breakfast cook, get on the various sports sites and boards, check the lines on a few of my books, maybe read some local news...what can I throw in there to make bank and get bitches?

I think that is a better question for the investment thread, but my advice is to ignore all economic and market news and put everything in an S&P 500 index fund. Go live your life and be free! go cats

Most of us (me included) have no reason to follow market news. SD and KK truly enjoy it as a hobby. If that ain’t you, stay the eff away from it as much as you can. I try to know just barely enough for small parts of my job.
