    In this time, Should I buy Bitcoin or Not?

    Best answer: I think everyone whos interested in bitcoin wants to hear that it is a sure thing and that youll make major dough off of it. The reality is that no one knows for sure. A lot of people have strong feelings about its future. Either good or bad. I think that if you didnt get in early on Bitcoin, then its too late.... show more
    Best answer: I think everyone whos interested in bitcoin wants to hear that it is a sure thing and that youll make major dough off of it. The reality is that no one knows for sure. A lot of people have strong feelings about its future. Either good or bad. I think that if you didnt get in early on Bitcoin, then its too late. Like you bought at ground level prices. Thats just my opinion though. Thats the only thing that people can give you about Bitcoin. Opinions. Guesses. It could double, triple or more even. On the other hand, it could be cut like many slices of a pie down to nothing. Only time will give us the answer. Id put your money in an up and coming business on The NYSE or Nasdaq. In short, though, no, I dont think you should buy bitcoin.

  • Why did the Stock Market system do a huge fall awhile ago and what is it like now? why?

    Best answer: draw some trend lines under the lows, beginning in August 2017. what I saw when i did this was a sharp up move in the trend line starting about Jan 1st 2018. This is, imho, unsustainable -- the market had known about tax law changes for two weeks prior and that made no difference to the trend line. The current... show more
    Best answer: draw some trend lines under the lows, beginning in August 2017. what I saw when i did this was a sharp up move in the trend line starting about Jan 1st 2018. This is, imho, unsustainable -- the market had known about tax law changes for two weeks prior and that made no difference to the trend line.

    The current down move has two interpretations -- first is a return to the trend line from Aug thru Dec and the second is that it has just "kissed the bottom of the [that] trend line goodbye."

    with more fiscal stimulus in place [tax cuts] and inflation still manageable, I like the interpretation -- if, that's the case, the Aug-Dec uptrend should resume.

  • How hard is it to become a hedge fund manager?

    Best answer: It is extremely competitive. You need to be successful in academics and in every job along the way.

    Undergrad degree. Your major does not matter as much as the school and GPA. It certainly does not need to be Accounting.
    First investment job as a junior analyst, fundamental or quantitative. [Not a broker, they are just sales people]
    MBA or equivalent. Better school = better opportunities.
    CFA at some point.
    Serious investment job as an analyst, then senior analyst.
    Portfolio manager for long only funds.
    Hedge fund manager.

    Other paths are possible, but the above is pretty typical. It does require a lot of work over many years, but nothing like the 18 hour days in the earlier idiot answer. If you are managing serious amounts of money, longer term strategies are far more important than constant attention to every shred of news. That's the movie version of hedge funds, not the real world.

  • Hi. Do you think the US stock market is due for another correction? Are stock prices generally too high?

    Best answer: yes some are - some aint (generally hi tech ones are) http://www.macrotrends.net/1319/dow-jones-100-year-historical-chart (this IS the index for the last 20 years "gwyn" that was a hellova correction in 2007 - it took 6 YEARS to get back to where it was in 2007 the market today is over 20 TIMES... show more
    Best answer: yes

    some are - some aint (generally hi tech ones are)

    http://www.macrotrends.net/1319/dow-jone...

    (this IS the index for the last 20 years "gwyn"
    that was a hellova correction in 2007 - it took 6 YEARS to get back to where it was in 2007

    the market today is over 20 TIMES what it was 35 years ago

    After the crash in 1929 it took 3 YEARS to hit bottom - it didnt get back to its 1929 level until 1954 THATS 25 YEARS
    AND in those 25 years a LOT of the conpanies that existed in 1929 had gone bust

    Yes there are "corrections" - But it can take the market several years for it to get back to where it was BEFORE the "correction" - AND the companies that comprise the index of the market can change over that period -
    So who cares if the index goes up - If YOU pick the wrong ones in the market YOUR companies may NEVER come up

    Microsoft didnt EXIST 45 years ago, APPLE didnt EXIST 40 years ago, Amazon,didnt EXIST 25 years ago - Google didnt EXIST 20 years ago
    NOW have a look at where they are in DOW and NASDAQ indices)

  • Should I invest in Gold orBitcoin?

    Best answer: Bitcoin is a scam. People have lost tons of money with it. With gold you lose money slower most of the time.

    I invest in rental real estate properties and in real estate investment trusts. The upside is not as big but there is little to no downside either. Just regular rents and dividends coming in every month.

    Best answer: the most basic thing you have to understand about the stock market is -

    For every sale there has to be a buyer -

    With common stocks this dont matter cos they are traded all the time , so when the order goes in to "sell" they will be sold withing a few seconds/minutes, AND the difference between selling and buying price wil be small. but with uncommon stocks it may take some time for the broker to find somebody to buy so it could take much longer to find a buyer . In this case the "market maker" will buy them, and sell when they get a buyer. BUT the price you sell at is likely to be different from the one you see on screen

    In any case- does it really matter? -
    prices are going up/down all the time - the price between "now" and 20 minutes from "now" is just as likely to go up as down
