I'm still only learning and paper trading but my little woven web of option trades that was waiting for volatility to expand came in today.

Some stuff is hurting too but its expiration is all out in October so there's still plenty of time to be right.

Up, down, left, right, in, out, I'm right, and wrong, in all directions.

I know you don't care but yesterday after eur/usd rose I opened a Sell position for 200€ with a x50 leverage because I thought it will fall after it rose to a 2 week high.

Well, it rose even further and I rose the stop loss. It was at -122$ when I went to sleep and stop loss was -125$.

When I woke up it was at 0$ and I was able to close the trade without a loss. I am just a beginner but will for sure stay away from high leverages for now. Thanks based stock market

Why do day traders lose their shit as soon as they see a little red number? Maybe its time to consider that holding stocks months at a time is better than selling every time you panic and buying again when the panic is over. I can't see you making good returns with that logic.

I bought SKLN at .15, sold at .22 then bought MGT at 3.48, sold at 3.88, I got very lucky this week and made 1500$.

I'm a stock n00b so I wouldn't know but is this a sign that the economy is about to crash?

I literally do not believe that they will. They're not actually going to raise them nor have they said for certain that they are going to do so this month.

Methnerd

When you cut interest rates and do stimulus you're essentially borrowing money from your future self.

When you raise rates you're giving yourself 'safety space' to cut rates in the future.

We may have another economic crisis on our hands with Europe going the way it is, and the effects of Brexit. We need the rates to be high so we can cut back to 0 and keep the cycle going.

IF we don't raise now we're leaving ourselves in a horrific position, one where we're in total economic turmoil, and the rates won't go lower anymore.

TreeEater
TreeEater

I understand and agree. It's just weird to see the rates rise so early before election, or even the debates.

How will a small rise help cushion the blow anyway?

Skullbone

The world will be more dependent on US markets and oil will stay cheap with a strong dollar.

Flameblow

Do you have any prediction of how the market will continue to go down for the next week or months? Are current losses temporary and they'll bounce back soon, then be followed by a big loss?

StonedTime
StonedTime

The rise isn't happening. The fed has switched to bullshit forward guidance that is based on nothing. They won't raise interest rates until they have real tangible evidence that it's appropriate. We cannot raise interest rates until the proper conditions appear or else the markets will be fucked up. The markets have already begun to slump and the US cannot act independently.

CouchChiller
CouchChiller

Monday the market will go higher and by the end of next week everything will be higher than before the drop. Keep in mind no one bats an eye with a 200 point drop. 400 point drop is just two bad days.

DeathDog
DeathDog

Monday we're going to see the markets open DOWN. If this movement was based on interest rates, it would have happened earlier. This is just price action.

TechHater
TechHater

Why the hell are they even talking about raising rates then? Aren't they fucking up the markets by causing a panic?

If the FED knows prices will go down because they say they will increase rates, why the fuck are they saying it? What is the point?

Seriously this makes no sense, are they trying to slowly make people get used to the fact rates are coming or is this just some elaborate ruse to make people sell?

eGremlin

The automated systems and people over the weekend will see the dow stocks being value plays. Same thing happened with Brexit. Right now their in so definite answer to interest rates and the meeting isn't until like the end of the month.

BinaryMan
BinaryMan

Why would it go higher? Won't more and more people be selling on the news of upcoming rate rises?

AwesomeTucker
AwesomeTucker

Okay, so you mean like how BAC and others asked for permission to buy back stocks during Brexit to recover losses? Won't a rate rise in general lower profits for companies and make them less desirable?

Exactly, since The Great Recession, they have moved away from traditional forward guidance. They just sit here paddling feet now teasing an interest rate thinking it'll cause the markets to gain more confidence.

I didn't realize people still panic sold this hard the weekend of 9/11. Oh well, it will come back within a few days. Monday will be a great day to buy.

The US already raised interest rates and between then in now we have record highs, so no. The world is fucked, not the US.

Okay so the idea is that increasing rates will create market confidence?

So the market is asking for a rate rise and they are lying saying they will put one in place but they actually won't? How would a rate rise tease make the market more certain?

Your position is that a rate increase is positive for the market?

whereismyname
whereismyname

Your position is that a rate increase is positive for the market?

Yes, for a number of reasons. But to simplify mainly us closer to a 2% inflation target and the rest of the world doing so badly with negative interest rates.

Keep in mind the last time we had record interest rates was during the dot com boom! Higher interest rates are part of growth.

Nojokur

I was down 2.5 percent today, which sucks but I bought some shares of ICICI bank which I'm pretty confident will go up.

I'm just glad Napsers wasn't too terribly devastated like Yandex.

Spazyfool

I feel the same way, I don't like seeing rates this low. I'd rather see them stay stable and let the market decide how the market performs, not how rate changes influence it.

Supergrass
Supergrass

They were using it to give the markets milestones to know when things will occur in order to keep things moving. In the past, they were ensuring that the rates would stay where they were or would be reduced, and now they have decided that it is time to turn things around. They feel that they are able to help lead the market this way.

Like the other poster said, the fed looks for a 2% inflation target, and will raise rates to keep things in check. The current model of forward guidance is to try to give the market confidence. We've currently switched to raising rates instead of lowering them. I think calls on rate increases should be based on inflation and jobs reports, not some arbitrary dates. The Fed can try to proclaim, but they'll only act when it's right in this case.

Nude_Bikergirl
Nude_Bikergirl

jobs reports
I think the baby boomers retiring is really screwing with these numbers. Also purchasing habits are changing messing with inflation and other numbers. All this has turned steady numbers into a jumble.

If oil didn't shit the bucket I think interest rates would have been raised much more over the past year.

Lunatick
Lunatick

If oil didn't shit the bed we'd be seeing even worse numbers this year what are you talking about. Retail and consumer confidence is up but only artificially. We'd probably be in a similar situation but lower if oil hadn't moved the way it did this year.

Sir_Gallonhead
Sir_Gallonhead

what are you talking about

The US has a large number of oil and gas jobs
Lately food prices are being deflationary, cutting into margins, thanks to oil
Corporate profits are tied into expensive oil
etc

Soft_member
Soft_member

The US is driven by consumers. We are also tied to oil. If oil goes down but we continue consuming even in this negative interest rate environment, we'll be okay for a while, but it won't last forever.

They won't raise the rates this month. They will hint largely before they do like they did in Dec 2015. They already said they would hike rates 3 times already. Guess what? They didn't.
They backed themselves into a corner where they save the dollar or save the market. Hike rates the market will crash. Continue with QE and the inflation of the dollar will continue until it pops. They will hold out as long as possible before they admit they fucked up.
My opinion for what it's worth

I'm not a trader but I did take all $85k of my investments out of the market a few weeks ago so I'm pretty happy. Sometimes it's better to be out of the market. I'll wait for a good opportunity interested of churning my shit and fucking myself with so much leverage.

What's a good stock trading site for a complete beginner?

I was looking at OptionsHouse and they looked like the best of the low cost per trade options.

Am I right or is there one better?

Firespawn

it doesn't matter as long as they are regulated by a governmental authority so that they can guarantee atleast some of your money incase your broker goes bust.

Reviews can be shilled so all those 4 - 5 stars on comparison websites are meaningless. You have to try it for yourself to judge.

This is going to be a really retarded question, so I'm sorry.

If I buy stock A on site 1, and then decide later to switch to site 2 what happens to stock A?

When I buy a stock online, I do actually own the stock right? It's not a "stock" that I own only on whatever site I bought it on, right?

SniperGod

Kek Carl Icahn literally just said exactly this not too long ago. Don't get butt hurt, sure you can make money in a down turn, but at this point people are literally guessing whether the fed will or will not raise rates.
