    Do you mean the Dow? Because it was just up 300+ points yesterday. Still up 1.25% YTD and down about 4% since October which was the high.

    My Vio investment account has been making a steady 2.25%

    Could be because it’s a savings account, but I don’t like to get hung up on semantics.

    Where'd you do your research to find such a cash cow?

    Do you work at an investment banking institution where they do this kind of stuff as a big wall street guy?

    Anyone have a good link for options trading? I wanna mess with it but have no clue what I’m doing. Plus the TDA app is hard as fuck to figure out with my limited knowledge.

    I just meant like a tutorial. I already have money in my TDA account and what not. I just don’t understand how it works when I’m trying to put in an order on a put.

    Do I want the strike price to be higher or lower than what it’s trading at? Then there’s the “bid/ask” options, etc.

    My GF works there but her ability to explain it to someone with minimal knowledge/needs visuals is woat
