Just made money while eating lunch with my wife. It's good to be rich.
Up 5.2% after a record day.
I didn't think today would be this good.
I'll get up there one day, thats awesome though.
That RVLV stock is up over 7% today, pretty sweet
That's the DOW. Not my acct.
Should have clarified. Haha
The market closes when I get off work, that's pretty convenient
McCormick (MKC), Hersheys (HSY), and Lamb Weston Holdings (LW) have taken hits and will recover soon.

All my gainz are dropping, wtf
Since sit down restaurants are taking a big hit, check
Darden Restaurants, Inc. (DRI) and Bloomin' Brands Inc (BLMN)

Dems are sneaky, sneaky.
Fine print of worker stimulus apparently pays workers more for extended unemployment than it would if they went back to work.
Bernie throws a fit and says if that's taken out or changed, he isn't signing shit.
Be prepared for a fucking torpedo market tomorrow.
So what you're saying is transfer more cash into my account now? Instead of waiting until next week?
I did it. I fucking did it.
I gave my wife access to the account. She's way smarter than me so hopefully she puts in some of her skrilla and starts making moves. She fucking loves data and data points. Really really hoping she gets sucked into it
We will see what plays out.
Might be some buying opportunities tomorrow.
If Washington gets their heads out their collective asses tonight it might not be too bad.
I thought I heard them say the jobs report was coming out tomorrow but it's not. I looked it up and it's scheduled for April 3.
Not sure what they were talking about. It sucks actually having a job while I do this on the side. Haha.
I sold all of my positions, except for my gains, before the market closed for this very reason. Back to back big days with how volatile things are...I dont expect it to last. Bet you're right and the Dow is down big tomorrow. I'll try pick up some equities on sale.
That's the game plan here. Pick up for fairly cheap, let it ride, buying on days they tank in the near future and then sitting on it for a few months once everything settles. Sell, then buy into more long term type stocks.
Any weed stocks look good to you? They have been battered by all this too. Thinking CGC.
She's gonna cash out and buy shoes.
That's a clusterfuck of a market. I have no idea how that's going to shake out. Too confusing with each state having their own rules and regulations.
Feds just need to legalize it and tax it like tobacco and alcohol. It doesn't need to be so difficult.
Not her thing, she'd buy guns or something for her truck.
Stimulus package passed by Senate 96-0
Let's see if the House Dems start any shit today.
And it looks like the Dems got their way. 880 page bill for "disaster recovery" and they managed to add $25 million for the Kennedy Center and $25 million for NPR. What the fuck does that have to do with the current situation? I'm sure there's more. My assumption is the GOP got tired of fucking with them and wanted something pushed through even if it wasn't perfect, so after 3 days of the Dems crying in the sandox the GOP gave up.
They tried to sneak in funds for Planned Parenthood and stricter emmision control as well - I assume those got removed?
Fucking disgraceful. California should be embarrassed for voting Pelosi in decade after decade after decade.
So explain this to me like I'm 5, and retarded. How is the. Market losing value already when the market isn't open yet?
It's an indicator of post-market and pre-market trading.
The market is "open" from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm, but trading happens after the market closes and before it opens. ECNs (electronic communication network) match potential buyers and sellers and report the transaction before the bell opens the day. The sum of those off-market transactions are what you are seeing.
They are processed when the bell sounds to open the day and that's where the market immediately goes, but it can quickly change direction depending on trades done during the open hours.
Thanks for the info
