    Yea..if Brexit happens, market is definitely going to react even more so now.

    Dayum! That's some hot stuff @twigster .

    Decided to shutdown the auto-reinvest tool and put in $1k more. Going to place it in the most aggressive option and will check back in 6 months. To be continue :looney:

    I feel your pain, been struggling so much even with getting a job with the state and i really dont have any other expenses besides rent car note and car insurance yet it still feels like I dont have nearly enough money to do anything but pay bills : /


    The struggle is real man. I was starting to make progress with saving, and just being financially savvy. But I along with a lot of others got laid off without any warning, and kind of fucked everything up. Been trying to get a Job ever since (this was last August btw). I've gotten to a point where I'm not even getting considered for shitty jobs. Literally been told that I'm too qualified for the job I applied for, but not qualified enough for others. I don't know man, all I do know is that once I get a good job, all the things I have learned about proper finance management will really go further with more income.

    Just staying hopeful and connecting where I can. Things will get better though.

    Sooo...how about dem Brexits? I just realized I invested about 30% in global ETFs on the experimental roth IRA I opened 2 years ago. It was already 2% down this year but with this official news...

    I'm up 5.8% today ($270). yoooooooooooooooooooooo

    edit: I was going to say -excluding- my 401k, which I assumed would be down but is actually up a few dollars. Have no idea how, since 80% is in foreign stocks. I never check my 401k since I stopped contributing a while ago.

    Don't catch a falling knife.
    People are still waiting for the ruble to recover, I'd be _really_ careful right now.

    Personally, I'll just wait and keep the stuff I have. No changes.
    Turned shit for me right now, a EU fella, but well. Waiting and hoping, still have faith.
    There's way too much uncertainity for the next months and years to me.

    VIX (dollars) also went up.

    Jesus Christ that takes some serious bravery. Could've lost or gained twice the money in a mere day. I'm not that risky feeling.

    Yen is the most volatile currency out there. If you like hemorrhaging money then that's the stuff you buy into. Currency trading is risky and ill advised but that Yen is on a whole new level of crazy.

    Depending on how much my setup bleeds due to this Brexit shit, might sell some losses for that $2500 tax credit at end of year.

    I've got a question that I've been having trouble getting answers for.

    If you have a DRIP account set up,when exactly are your dividends taxed? I mean, are they taxable during the point before they are re-invested, or are they only taxable after you cash out, like the rest of it? Thanks.

    -Starhammer-

    when you go to fill out your tax return, whether the dividend was reinvested or not, doesnt matter, still counts as dividend earned, so it is taxable.

    Thanks Mang. :tup: Kinda puts a dent in my plans, but I don't have tons of cash invested yet anyways. I'll just adjust my plans to add this into them.

    EDIT @twigster Heh. Nice going getting in there with the gold. :tup:

    @twigster If you still have gold you have a big risk to take. If the UK continues to be uncertain about what it will do post-Brexit then gold will continue to rise. If the central banks step in which most people are praying to god that they do, then your gold could possibly drop to pre-Brexit levels. Idk I would start selling.

    EDIT: More reading, the UK still seems in disarray and this special day in the market is just speculation.

    Most of my stocks back to where they were before the brexit vote. If that is the worst of it the case for fearmongering gets the advantage. However I expect this is not the end at all and there will be many more twists and turns coming soon (opportunity). I am still super new to this ish, but not too sure about gold right now. The bulk of my earning recently has come from leveraged oil ETFs. Just been picking my points, going in hard and pulling out. I feel the benefits outweigh the risks in this market right now (though shorting oil is another story, only if I am feeling myself). If I mistime (once so far), I just leave it in, save to refund the account and wait for the mistimed chunk to rebound longer term (I expect it to eventually).

    From everything I can find, the EU is trying to fearmonger and it's not working. They're scared that if the UK doesn't fold, Others might leave too. Right now I'm not messing with anything because I really don't have anything to mess with. For the time being, I'm just gathering info and watching like everyone else. Good luck to us all. :tup:

    imo, gold is less risky than equities right now, for the simple fact the reasons gold has been such a good play this year, none of those reasons have changed, still have low to negative interest rates globally, the dollar is weaker than it was last year, and there is fear in the markets. with the pound getting destroyed because of brexit and the yen being the safe haven currency, so it keeps getting bid up, japan will have to act to crush the yen, well try anyways as they keep failing.

    now with all of this do you really think china is going to sit by quietly and let it happen? oh no, best beleive china will pull some currency bullshit this year and the markets will sell off hard as fuck like it did august of last year.

    Gold looks to be at a two year high. If you got in at the beginning of the year, good for you but I am not really looking that direction right now. At this stage is it good for anything other than a hedge?

    I mostly deinvested in Europe so Brexit didn't really affect me but I did put a couple of calls on Gold futures and I GOT PAID. I was considering oiling up as it seems to be a safe bet, but IMO you will have to be willing to hold onto it for a while, it will eventually pay back several times what you paid for it though. If you buy gold at a downswing I think it is worth it to hedge, but it's so expensive right now I don't know if it will really be that great of an investment. My grandfather gave me a large amount of gold in 2000, but I have just kept it because it keeps increasing in value. As it stands it has increased in value 4X in about 16 years, which is better than any other investment I have looked into. Eventually I may trade it all in on a property but I think I am going to wait and see as with all the nonsense going on with fiat money and banks right now I am unsure when we are going to hit the actual top. Still it's pretty nice to know I could just pay off my house with a bag full of coins if shit ever hit the fan.

    yeah, I guess you have to go in hard with oil if you are trying to make short term gains. But going long (2-3X) and dropping a sizable chunk may be worth it. A 2X leveraged crude ETF will commonly move about 3% (in either direction) any given day. And yesterday it nearly moved ~8% up. If you mistime your entry point you can usually just wait it out. Or if something goes royally wrong you can console yourself by looking at how low we are from two winters ago hahaa, because you are likely not going to want to sell and lock in that L. Well it is working for me so far. But I am an idiot.

    yea UWTI and DWTI, both 3x levered to long and short oil move alot, especially when the EIA number comes out 10:30am on wednesdays.

    i just played LABU, bought it monday at 22 and sold at 28 today.

    as bearish as the market should be, buying the dip still continues to work.

    People say commodities are risky (and they are), but betting on Biotech is super risky imo, Although I guess a sector stock is less risky than a single stock; drug discovery/development is a thankless endeavor and the industry is feeling it right now.

    Crazy week, wow good for you. Sometimes I overthink it (though not as much as others), so maybe simply looking at the 52 wk lows and checking for an undervalued ones is a braindead but legit strat(?)

    Hey seeking some advice on getting my finaces in order. Now that my hours at work are consistent now. Regular 40hrs a week with potential for over time. I'd say I'd bring in on average after taxes $650 bucks weekly. So monthly that's $2600 per month. My main bills are....

    rent: $503 per month
    Car Note: $445 per month
    Utilities: 60-70 per month
    Food: $200 per month


    Secondary Bills

    Phone: 35 per month
    Internet: 60-70 per month
    Hair Cut: 40-50 per month

    I haven't factored in stuff such as gas for the car, laundry or random stuff. Also I have two other debts I haven't been paying on. A debt to Georgia's Department of labor for overpaid unemployement benefits, and my student loans. I was trying to save up some money before getting started on Student loan payments. Should I be paying on it now or can it wait? Also is there a benefit to having multiple checking accounts or a savings account? Also how can I go about getting any of these bills reduced. Like my car note is damn near as much as rent.

    Hey man Barber does good work. Only right to tip him on a job well done. But I guess I can lower the tip. It's 15 bucks for a cut. I just don't vreak the 20 and let him keep the whole thing as tip. So it comes to 40 a month. But that's minor compared to the other stuff. Which is what I'm really concerned with
  • StarhammerStarhammer The Laughing Man of SRK. Joined: Posts: 20,705 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    @BB_Hoody

    To answer your question: Yes. Any debt you have is the first thing you want to attack. Right now I'm afraid you're going to need to cut back on the tip to your barber. It's cool to show some love, but your bills need to get paid too. Not sure how much food costs around your way, but I'd look into trying to prepare meals at home if you don't already. a couple sandwiches and salads per week would put a sizeable dent in that food bill I bet. Those bills are eating up pretty much everything before you even get it. Either overtime, another job, or a second job. If that isn't an option right now, you might have to look at what you're spending on. If I could get my utilities down to only 70 a month, I'd be able to save money hand over fist.

    Dammit. There was a rather good YouTube financial vid that I thought I had bookmarked, but I can't seem to find it right now. I'm still going to post the search link here.

    https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=financial+freedom

    I think the Napoleon Hill ones are good, but I myself am just using the most basic strats: Leave it in the bank until I get smart enough not to fuck up. The only thing I have getting any cash right now is a DRIP in gas. The only reason it's getting it is because it has been rather stable. Never moving very far one way or another and they keep their dividend running like clockwork. I hope I've been able to help.

    Hmm OK. So I need to get on that student loan. I mean I would if it wasn't for this Car Note. That money could've went towards it. I mean at 2600 a month. I think I'm left with a lil something each month. My bills as of now, number could change. Is $1,363 a month. $2600-$1363 Leaves me with $1,237 at the end of the month. That's decent. Now adding student loan payments on top of that will hurt. But it must be done.

    I do make lunches and dinner at home. But I buy meats, and veggies and what not. Guess I really gotta cut back on the name brand stuff, and snacks and what not. I go food shoping tomorrow. What would be a good target goal for weekly grocceries? And I'll check out that vid you linked.

    Yeah definitely get working on the student loan. Btw, student loans are one of the few things that can't be discharged with personal bankruptcy. So you're stuck with them until you're 50 or something.

    You want to pay it off now so that you don't have to pay the extra interest on the loan. Every dollar you spend on interest is another dollar you'll never see again.

    As far as food, yeah avoid name brand stuff as much as possible. Also, fruit, vegetables, bread, eggs and milk (and soup, maybe rice, and I'd guess water) have no sales tax, so they tend to be cheap as hell. I never spend more than $50 a week on groceries, and that's with the brand name stuff that I buy.

    And quit giving your barber so much damn money. I only get a haircut about 4 times a year so maybe I can't relate to $50 a month.

    Edit: Oh and no, there's really no advantage to having both a checking and a savings account. Savings accounts are earning about .25-.5% (literally a few cents per year) interest. Just save the money on the additional management fees you'll pay; forgo the savings account and keep it in checking.

    @twigster Ah Ok, so I'll get on that student loan. As for food. I mean 200 bucks a month basically equates to 50 a week likr you're spending. So I must be doing pretty good on my food bill as is right? I'll try to limit my haircuts. I'll also look into trying to refinance my car. I heard that can help lower my payments. Also how much should I pay on my student loans? I believe i have about 35k in loans. i want that paid off my the time I'm 30.

    I actually do use my savings account believe it or not. It is just that stored cash that I can get to quickly if I need it quickly, but not IMMEDIATELY. That way I have a few more minutes to think which is about all my brain needs to say,"Hey. Stupid. You know damn well you can live without that boobie mouse pad! Stay focused!!" It's a brain dead way of having the main bills account separate from the savings so that when I FINALLY do decide to go hard on some investment(s), I'll know what I have to play with. As far as earning anything on a savings account, I don't think those days will ever come back.

    Speaking of which, what are all of you using to learn how to invest? Right now I'm just looking through some of the books that have been mentioned here, but if any of you have any good places online, I'd love to know about it and I'm sure the rest would too.

    EDIT: meant to put this here too. www.dividend.com. for the dividend peeps. I know I have put it here before, but this will keep people from having to dig through the whole thread looking for it. Also,That monthly income planner. :tup:

    This market is so goddamn stupid. "Bad news! Let's start bidding up stocks guys, guess they're not raising rates!" :coffee:

    Like sheep to the slaughter.

    I'm not really losing any money, I'm just amazed how ridiculous this is. QE in Japan and a "good" jobs report and suddenly algo's go nuts.
