I've put a little bit into Structured CDs and Market notes. Do you guys like those?

Liquidity sucks.

Now, politics COULD have a huge impact here, so it might be unavoidable.

Anyway, I'm currently learning how to invest using options, which all of my investing savvy friends are doing.
options can make you a lot of money but it's essentially gambling on stock performance.

has anyone been riding NVDA? i only caught the tail of the recent growth but the semiconductor industry has been popping off. all the tech stocks soared yesterday and today it's red everywhere.

i like BABA and AMAT long.

i want to get my foot into finance/trading but don't know how. CNBC has become my favorite channel

I only have limited experience in investing. Currently my money is split between retail and medical sectors. I'm definitely interested in putting more money into the market though.

Whelp, never mind, it opened at $42.

I am not surprised, just was hopeful I could get it for less.

Pre-hours traders have such an advantage.

I've been playing around on robinhood and I hope I don't yet raped by taxes.

Just buy Amazon...too late. Seriously probably 10% to the upside for them near term.

If we're looking at it retrospectively I should have bought Amazon at $500 or Nvida at $50.

I like TSM at 35. They supply NVDA and Jensen Huang is Taiwanese.

One of my favorite Tech funds has had a decent holding in that for a while. Probably something worth looking at.

Well, I more mean I was thinking about buying at those prices over the last two years. Not that I was alive during their rise.

I'm not buying into Slack. I just think it's useless. I get there's a bidding war for it, but I don't see the benefit of it.

We use a slack competitor here and I don't see this as some game changing software. They're still a private company so it doesn't really matter right now, but even if/when they go public, I'm not sure if I'd feel comfortable in investing in them.

Finally going to stop being a moron w/ my money and getting a good chunk of it into the market. I'm a set it and forget it type of person when it comes to investing so thinking of doing a 50/50 split between VTI and VOO ETFs. Is there anything bad about that?

To clarify, I have zero interest in owning individual stocks which I have to monitor and trade on a daily basis.
