    Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful. At least that's what they tell me.

    Teach me your ways. I’ve made the most money in a 6 month span in my career and my total net worth is down about $100k. Guess I’m learning a tough lesson but still sucks.

    I'm down 6 figures this year but am right around October of last year. I don't think that's unusual.

    Yeah it's not pretty. I just keep telling myself this will correct itself. I mean... It always does. So far at least, historically.

    When in doubt, zoom out.

    I'm just going to litter this thread with investing clichés for the rest of the day.

    Hopefully I can kill the next renewal over the phone and not blow my earnings on gas driving there.

    Is there a reason to earn 0.4% in a CD over 0.5% in a savings account?

    Ally has never been below 0.5%, with no account minimum. And covid legislation has really loosened withdrawal limits

    Fucked up state of affairs when every random person feels like they have to be a financial expert as a side job to make 10% per year on money already earned…

    It's been rolling for awhile now. I've been meaning to stop it but always seem to forget. Nothing of significance to really worry about. Even the small amount would have made a lot more in the stock market though.

    Just noticed that even DIS is back to May 2020 level. Those Netflix earnings killed anything streaming-related. Might keep an eye on that one if they show a hit from all the conservative idiots canceling when they report on the 11th.

    All the market cares about is predictability. Doesn't really matter if it's bad news, as long as it's not a surprise.

    Bought a few cheap puts against WEBR. Grill industry getting crushed currently and I think worse is coming. Can't wait to be correct and watch the stock rise anyways.
