DarkO is this like something you ever used?


I realize it's 8mm - it's one of many pieces of "junk" I have around the maison that I must have inherited from a prior generation - but still, it's your era - "film," no?



I recognize it. It's not something I used often.

Up just before 4am PST TSLA and AMZN were each down about -30. Immediately at the open of the pre- both jumped about 15 pts up.

Then when the abysmal economic data (shows biggest quarterly contraction since the war (annualized rate of 32.9%)) came out, stocks actually went UP quite a lot lol.

I managed to book 11 pts very easily on TSLA trades long on dips.

See what happens after the bell. With AAPL AMZN GOOG/L reporting the market will be shook one way or another depending on how the street takes the news.

DarkO that leronlimab drug - an ICU coronavirus unit doctor we know stopped giving it to patients months ago because it had such severe side effects on one of his patients that the guy basically was fried for life. He didn't relate the specific side effects to us but he said that the guy who took the leronlimab will never be the same.

What about this head lice drug ivermectin? They say that is promising too, but neither ivermectin nor leronlimab has taken hold anywhere as far as coronavirus treatment. So far only remdesivir is on some kind of fast track to approval and who knows if that even works. Many who have received remdesivir have died anyway.

MDaw

I think you may have the wrong drug. Leronlimab has a huge safety profile.

It been used on over 900 HIV patients on a regular weekly basis for years as part of trials with no safety issues or very mild ones.

They just passed their safety protocol for Covid-19 trials with flying colors.

Your doctor may have been mistaken. Perhaps he was thinking of Lenzilumab?

There are a bunch of MAB medication out there

Of course if that doctor saw one patient with SAE (Severe Adverse Effects) it's always possible there is a fractional population out there which doesn't agree with the drug. Most drugs will have some side effects for a small population of people

As for Remdesvir that is never getting approved for covid. It's received this conditional approval for the Covid emergency until something better comes along (as in something that actually prevents death)

Here is an excellent article published today about Leronlimab and it's safety protocol "It's Jaw-dropping"

Yes I was very surprised to hear this about Leronlimab given its ostensibly safe protocol. But this was in May - was Lenzilumab even being given to any patients in May?

In any case yes we're talking about one patient.

I don't follow Lenzilumab too closely

It in phase 3 trial so I imagine it was.

Yes TSLA is taking a hit today. Was up at first now down. TSLA should get back to the 1440s at some point again before the bell though. If not, eventually TSLA will be back to the 1700s.

We did get back to 1443 and change, as predicted, but it didn't stick.

Next week should be better times for TSLA.

I got stuck in some trading AMZN shares yesterday that I was able to sell today at a profit - crazy, AMZN was -19 in the pre and is now almost +50.

Soopoo, you must be green all the way by now, no? I mean everything is up. I'm at another ATH as far as all of my stock accounts, trading and long term.

OneNickel I hope you gave up that bad habit of shorting.

Well... I'm 'green' if you go back far enough of course! As I've said... I have 5 separate portfolios, 4 retirement, 1 not. The one retirement one that I call WoV portfolio is BY FAR up the most. Has AAPL, TSLA, FB...... The others are up from their inception, but I've started tracking them more closely since 9/1/2019. The WoV portfolio is up around 15% since then, the other 4 are up around 2%. Remember, all 5 have around 20% bond exposure which limits upside in a good market and downside in a bad one. Yes, WoV portfolio is at an all time high.

Ok, MDAWG..... give me ONE stock we haven't mentioned for me to buy for a long term hold...... I can add it to WoV portfolio!

NFLX?

I went just 250 per on my TSLA trades today. I have been going 500 per lately trying to keep each lot around a mill. It was a good idea because the bottom dropped out and then I averaged in for a single quick trade. Lately I have been doing (making) 2500 - 5000 (dollars) per trade but when I get stuck the tendency is to get the hell out and regroup, so in this case, $500.

When I bot at 1501 the bottom dropped out so I put in a sale at 1503 to make a couple pts and get out. Later, it dropped even lower, so I averaged in at 1485 and sold all 500 @ 1494 to make a point - and the same $500. I expected in the first place.

Trade $1.5M of a stock to make five hunny? Yes. It all adds up and these are just trading shares anyway, nothing to do with my long term TSLA. The goal is minimum five grand a day, and yes some trades end up wobblers like this one, but many end up runaway winners. No losers tho, just average in more shares and ride it out!

The casinos may be (effectively) closed but the greatest casino in the world remains open - Wall Street! with much higher probabilities of success.

Did another TSLA one 1481 to 1485. Might've sold too soon this time but still - if I'd kept hanging around for 1503 on the first trade I'd still be stuck in that one.

That's the way I do it, and why I do better on red days actually than green as far as trading. I buy the dips, scalp usually five points, less if it gets iffy, average in more shares if needed, close out and then re-evaluate for the next one. On pure green days there's almost no need to trade just watch the long terms go up.

1478 to 1481
1467 to 1472

At some pt. I will have hit the bottom and it'll jump far up from there, but over all, these quick scalps are safe and profitable. And again, these are just trading shares, I don't touch my long term.

I have been lucky on my AMD stock I bought about 3 months ago. I bought it as a long term investment hoping to get 10% a year or so. It is up 50% in 3 months.

I am terrible at picking stocks so this one will probably go back down.

I think your AMD will do fine - most any stock bought during that massive coronavirus related drop is much higher now. There are some exceptions of course, such as airline stocks, but even they are off their lows.

Ca depend.

If I'm not doing any trades that day I might not look at all.

If I'm in a trade and it's heading right to where I want it quickly, I will usually watch it closely until it closes. If I end up far out of the money and I've decided that I won't average in more shares anytime soon, because I feel like it's going to drop a lot more, I might not watch it at all - watching too closely at times may lead to over trading.

In the early mornings I'm probably doing nothing but the stock market but after about 8am PST I will be attending to other things too. The regimen is a bit different these days since I'm working from home still. When I have outside appointments or need to travel those might be days I don't trade at all.

Do you plan your next casino ploy minutely from home, or just hit the road and hope for the best?

I have no idea what I am doing, but I have around $500 in a Robinhood that I mess around with for fun.

My general strategy is to buy stocks with upcoming quartet earning calls that I think will exceed expeditions, and then dump them shortly after the earnings are released. I think this is basically gambling, but I have been doing pretty well.

Late last week I purchased:
LOGM
TTWO
BAC
OTTR
LOGI
CDW
CWH
ETSY
FIT
FVRR
GDDY
SQ
FLIR
FNKO

Most of those did pretty well. With $500 spread between them (Robinhood now does fractional shares), I am up around $25 this week.

I plan on dumping most of those shortly and doing another round of picks for next weeks earning calls.

Welcome!

BAC I've owned very long term. FIT I've traded here and there.

SQ is doing pretty well, since its lows, no?

Why do you stick with RobinHood now that all brokerages are commissionless? You still have to pay SEC fees ($22.10 per million dollars) on each sale no matter where but at the levels you are playing at the SEC fees are pretty much nothing. RobinHood is too slow for me.

Lunch today, post-market.

Filet mignon, medium rare of course

truffle fries and mushrooms.

Arugula salad with eggs.



I handled the steak and fries; she made the mushrooms and salad.

A little heavy (skipped the salad dressing though) but can't eat salmon every meal.

Do you plan your next casino ploy minutely from home, or just hit the road and hope for the best?



Minutely from home.

My daughter says I am neurotic compulsive or obsessive compulsive when it comes to casino plays.

I have notebooks filled with play info.

I've been known to zone out over dinner. My family knows I am contemplating a play.

I have always been like that. When I worked in Hollywood as a technician I did that with my regular work which led to a number of innovations.

When I went to film school entire screenplays would play out in my head over and over and over until I managed to commit them to paper.

I even obsess over the order my comics and Blu-ray collection is organized with me making revisions on a regular basis.

I honestly don't think I ever could drive a car. I would start obsessing over something mentally and not even see what was in front of me on the road.

Of course when I am in a casino play (or organizing my blurays) I am laser focused on it. It's like the physical manifestation of my obsession.

That's probably why if it doesn't interest me (like poker for example) I just am not gonna learn. Has to compel me or it isn't happening

What do you suggest?

I tried reading into technical indicators, pattern trading, etc, so I could make decisions more objectively rather than my objective analysis, but the tools on Robinhood seemed inadequate.

Any broker platform I switched to would have to offer fractional shares.

Fractional shares - I didn't realize that this is what you are doing. No, the traditional brokerages I use would not allow direct purchase of fractional shares.

I don't use Fidelity or Schwab but they may allow it?

Was looking a little rough! this morning but buying AMZN on dips was rewarding as always. (TSLA too.)

I would guess by next year all of the major firms will offer fractional trades. I only use ETrade.

TSLA 5:1 split
!

I actually got stuck in some extra shares I bought at 1383 just before the bell trying to make just a couple points. I figured I'd hold the extras until it went up. Well now, it has! And then some.

For those about to rock...be careful with TSLA today. If you're already in, like I am, no problem. Ride it out and enjoy the windfall. Up a hundred from yesterday!

But it will be very volatile today, up and down.

It looks like it is up about 10% right now.

And this just highlights the stupidity of the stock market! A stock split should do NOTHING to the overall value of the entire company, and thus should do NOTHING to the present stock price! I own 40 shares now which is (making this up) .00001% of the company. After the split I will own 200 shares worth .00001% of the company. There is no logical reason my value should be higher because the company announced they are quintupling the number of 'shares' out there. I still own the EXACT same percentage of the company.

Yes... I'm happy it went up...!

You are right about a stock split but because individual shares become less expensive often people will use this as an opportunity to get in. If a share cost 1000 and now cost 250 it entices individuals to make a purchase. The value starts to increase because more people are buying....for awhile.

My experience has been stock splits are NEVER a bad thing and generally always good.

Had I held my original 400 shares of Apple after Jobs passed away....thatís current 2,800 shares and 11,200 shares on Aug. 31.

Split them all ya want, I say. Unless itís a reverse split. Then worry.

If this is really the reason, it will be moot if fractional shares become ubiquitous.

For whatever reason, when a stock splits it has a tendency to go eventually right back to the numeric value it had before. So, TSLA splits 5 to 1 at, say, 1700 (projecting that it might reach that before August 31st). Now it's 340 a share. It sounds crazy, but over time TSLA will tend to move back to 1700. Just the way it tends to work. Not always, but usually.

Along the way there are false starts though. You saw some of this today, when TSLA opened at 1470, dropped some, went as low as 1435 or so, then could barely get back to 1459, dropped back to 1453 or so, and then took off for the moon.

I actually bot some more trading shares 1453 and for a while, believe it or not, was stuck at a loss. I had entered a sell order at 1463 on them and hung in there, and felt pretty happy and grateful when I made the 10 points.

Meantime, and after selling those shares at 1463, my shares from yesterday, and my long term shares, went to the moon, practically to 1600.

Nothing is easy - the market will get you to sell too soon all the time. But who cares, profit is profit and I still hold my long term TSLA shares unwaveringly. NEW TARGET 2000.


I still remember all the mornings I woke up to find NFLX flying again after a split. Been holding that one since 2010. There were many times NFLX took a dump, and TSLA will take dumps too. But if you keep holding - you'll be rewarded long term.

Between yesterday and today TSLA has roared +200.

It won't hold, it'll drop and then some suckers will sell off their shares, leaving more upside for those of us holding long term, when it comes back even higher.

And in the meantime I'll trade additional shares on dips and make money off these same suckers.

And that's exactly what happened.

I turn it off for a bit, do some other work, come back to that TSLA's dropped all the way to 1573 (from a high in the 1610s or so). I try to buy it at 1572, get nothing. So then, as is my usual strategy, I set it below the last dip, at 1568, and get a fill! Who woulda thought, once again I hit the low for the day. Not that it mattered - I sold far too early for a measly 10 points, but five grand is still five grand, and in the meantime my long term shares and the ones from 1383 the other day are rocketing. Too easy.

Don't miss out now. TSLA. Is. It.

DarkOz, if you'd put that 45 grand into TSLA two days ago you'd be up a mint by now. Okay, true you'd have only been able to buy 32 shares at the 1383 I bot my extra shares at, and 32 shares is not much, but still - on those 32 you'd be up $8544. (at 1650) in just two days. Better than what's been going on with CYDY, which has been going nowhere other than down. And that's the difference between a penny stock and the real thing.

Cytodyn is just finishing clinical trials.

That's the main difference.

Once it's approved for EUA by the FDA I am pretty certain it's not gonna go down.

I brought Cytodyn because I believe in what they have not because it's got a numbers sheet

CYDY. Darkoz: I really sincerely hope that you make it. I like to see people succeed in the stock market. Just realize that for every penny that makes it hundreds go to zero.
