How do you put "independent investor" on a resume?9Oaf_Dawg 2022-01-07 13:58:48
For a period of a couple of years when I was technically "unemployed" I was an active day-trader/swing-trader and made some money. I was unincorporated, worked for myself and mostly worked alone. Should I put this on my resume? If so, how do I say it? I'm not a huge expert on stocks beyond knowing what I know to help me trade, and don't have much of a business mind, but I was investing and still trade from time to time.[View Answers]

What is worthy of investing in today by a poor man whose income is not absorbed by the very rich?0Tizzi2012-11-06 09:10:09
Seems like investment in anything is not a climbing value thing. Seems like investment actually is absorbed into never never land, paying people who make way more money per hour and year than I could ever have and promoting their leisure activities and moving their comingled funds with mine to build things that I will not live long enough to profit from even if those businesses don't reorganize to absorb my capital even if I stay?! I am just trying to figure out why a 2-4% CD would not be the best place for any money I might have? Except maybe day trading, and that you have to be very careful of! No wonder Americans are sitting on the sidelines! That and the downtick rule change last summer![View Answers]
Im 21 and need cash fast ... Any ideas?0binky2012-11-06 07:57:49
Let me just stop you right there ... I know you're going to say "Call J.G. Wentworth" lol But seriously, here's my issue, and maybe no one can have an answer to this besides myself. Gotta try the Yahoo! community though. I just graduated community college for graphics design only to find that the market for this job is absolutely over-saturated and the competition is outrageous. Being the jack-of-all-trades personality, I had already expected this and taught myself how to papertrade in the stock market. I've become, over the past 3 years, very familiar with the patterns and habits of typical day-trading as well as long term trends. I know what news to play and how to play dips, and even dabbled into options trading. My biggest problem is Im strapppppppppppppped for cash. My parents could do little to help me, so I've toughed out the college expenses pretty much alone. I am unemployed right now, but I can easily grab a serving job at a steakhouse. Theres the catch22 though; If I serve in a restaurant, I will only have enough to pay my bills and living expenses, no leftover money. If I had leftover money though, I could easily daytrade and pay bills from my nightjob. It may also be good to note my skill sets: Graphics Design, Computer Hardware and Software, and stock experience. I tried at one point building and selling computers but ebay and paypal had their grubby hands snagging all of my profit ... Basically Im just grasping for ideas. How can I get like 3-6 thousand bucks fast, outside of serving. Serving is nice because I can work nights and trade during the day. If I work 2 jobs, I lose the ability to trade, so that doesn't help. I thought about selling my car lol, but I understand that would create more problems than it would solve. I am however, very confident in my abilities as a trader. If you have ideas, feel free to comment; Please dont tell me stocks are too risky etc, because honestly ... I've studied them for years and they are not as scary as people make them out to be.[View Answers]
Selling and buying stocks?0Mina2012-11-06 06:42:46
This lady told me this about selling and buying stocks in the same day--she said: If you have less than $25,000 then you can only buy/sell (the same stock) 3 times in a 5 day period. So during M-F let's say you buy/sell AAPL on Tuesday (day 1)....Buy/sell X on Thursday (day 1)....Buy sell CAT on the following Monday (day 1)....You have reached the 3 day trades in a 5 day period limit. can any one put that in better words or help me to understand what she is meaning?[View Answers]
Hi i have a question on options trading?0[email protected]2012-11-06 03:54:30
What I need to know is, and this needs to be answered with somebody that actually trades options for a living. The other day i was watching this stock in pre market trading it was up by 5 dallars or 5 points in pre market. i wanted to catch that move using options, i have been paper trading with option express. so i purchased deep in the money calls. and the last bid and ask, the price of the option was like 8.20 - 8.50 the last trading day, i put a limit order in for 8.60 before the market opened, i was up tremendous that day because of the price discrepancy. So my anserwer is, is this a flaw with option express, or can you put in a order in using options if you see a stock up or down significantly in pre market trading. to capture the move in within the intraday. THANK YOU[View Answers]

VestorVest is a scam, any comments?0Riddhi2012-11-05 17:24:34
Here is my evaluation: This is a real scam with no tradeable information.. Adding to VVs "model portfolio" and not making the information available until a week later, then claiming victory, is just back trading the market and cherry picking the good ones that went up that week, where the VV software was right.. If they had some integrity you would publish the trades at least the next day, so someone could see that at least Dr D can make money with his own advice.. Let me tell you next FRI what I bought today and I guarantee a big positive result. yuk yuk Stop advice that can't be placed in the market is also worthless,, using the end of the day price in just not reasonable, since one can't put a order in the market to do this!

Is There A Car For Me?0Chycaria2012-11-05 16:43:28
Hey guys! I have a 92 Buick right now. It runs fine and gets me from place to place, but driving a Buick just isn't me. I'm looking at trading it for something else, and the choices are so overwhelming! I like trucks, especially Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma, but I also like Jeeps. Granted I only like them from a distance as I have never owned any of these, but there ya have it. I was just wondering what y'all think about my situation. Here's what I've got: (1) I need something that is absolutely reliable (2) I drive to work and school every day, so gas mileage is a factor (3) I am on a budget...a $12K budget (4) I need this car to last a long time...can't be buying a new one every year or so (5) I want something fun! So with all of that thrown at you, what do ya think? Am I impossible to please, or is there something out there that will fit the mold I've created? Throw any suggestions at me, including whether I am expecting too much for what I'm willing/able to pay. Thanks a lot[View Answers]

Do we really (yes really) need Sunday Trading?0Bhavin2012-11-05 06:59:33
Think of the energy saved - world energy depeletion/global warming(?) the quiet roads, empty of stressed drivers trying to get to do more shopping. The only time it may be fairly busy are those families getting together for lunch. Shops closed, the exitement of Saturday trying to get all your shopping done...and then peaceful Sunday. Dont we all need a rest. Save the world - lets all stop for one day[View Answers]

Day Trading and Taxes question? ?0Crimson Fart 2012-11-05 02:17:19
Ok, I am very confused on how taxation works with trading stocks. Take the following scenario for example. I buy for 60$ and sell at 80$. I make 20$ profit. I buy for 40$ and sell at 30$. I lose 10$. I buy for 50$ and sell at 100$. I make 50$ profit. I buy for 70$ and sell for 4$0. I lose 30$. I buy for 50$ and sell at 60$. I make 10$ profit. I buy at 50$ and sell at 20$. I lose 30$. Total profit before losses: 80$ Total losses: 70$ Profit left over at end of year: 10$ Ok, my question is... will I get taxed for the 80$ or will I be taxed for the 10$. I have searched everywhere for this answer. It is going to kill me unless I find out![View Answers]
