It’s going to be one of those days. Hope it’s just a day and not any more :scream:

Buy the dip, buy the dip :musical_note: :musical_note:.

While many retail investors have been focused on AI, Mr. Buffett has consistently been buying Occidental Petroleum under $60. I’m not saying he’s right (although I think he is), but I’m just reflecting on the paths he takes to consistently outperform over time.

Isn’t that just a pull back from the rally at the new tax year.

2 days in a row with a 10% depreciation notice
Will today be number 3

I’m hoping so.
It’s just painful to look at all the red :face_exhaling:
What with Ben’s Creek going sub 1p and then Tesla :flushed:

@BlueSonic is it fair to say that trading options is a bit of a rollercoaster? How long have you been doing it?

I guess the last 2 days was the bear market of 2024 … let the bulls continue :star_struck:


Wt f happened :scream:

That’s what happened. Even tho Powell said 3 rate cuts this year.
The market is so stupid :joy:

It’s worth adding further context to that, he stated two rates might be needed in comparison to Powell suggesting three, merely a difference of opinion as you’d expect in those meetings


Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank President Neel Kashkari said on Thursday that at the U.S. central bank’s meeting last month he penciled in two interest rate cuts this year but if inflation continues to stall, none may be required by year end.

And now we have more US jobs being added than expected :face_exhaling:

They are never lowering rates :face_exhaling:

We need people to loose their jobs and be out of work. That was the entire plan.

And within 30 mins of US open, portfolio up over 7%
Can never ever predict his the market will react :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
