This is WHY government regulation (done correctly) is a good thing. But don’t try to sell the right wingers on that.
That is why the only stock I own, is the stock of the company I work for.
Interesting. Ramirez was completely silent about this over the last 4 years or so. I wonder what changed his mind to stay quiet…?
BTW, as I have mentioned before, the Stock Market is the world’s largest gambling venue that has very little to do with actual creation of good and services. It’s mostly gambling on expectations.
Is Trump Disciple Ramirez implying there should be better, uh, regulation of stock trading?
Like it’s never happened before?
Shouldn’t that bubble be orange?
The 2008 crash was so much fun, we should do it again. So what if y’all lost your houses, I got rich from the taxpayers bailing me out.
So stock gains under trump were a sign of the great economy and as soon as he’s out, it’s a bubble? FFS are people really that stupid? (rhetorical question)
Never put you eggs in one basket…….unless you get inside information!
we need Elizabeth warrens tax on wall street
1) Start investing in stocks when you are young, buy what you know, if your company has a plan for you to invest in the company & matches you TAKE IT, 2)Reinvest all dividends into more shares, watch out for fund manager changes, DON’T PANIC!!, and remember-buy when the blood is running down Wall St. 3)10-15 years out from retirement start moving money into bonds. 4)You should also have a fund of emergency money,(which you should start first) in the bank, in case of a major incident, say furnace going out in Minnesota in January. And again DON’T PANIC!
Alway a good idea, especially if you get a discount and low or no fees. Just keep an eye on how management is doing and if there are changes coming…like a buy out,
So-called speculative trading has been one of the fundamental banes of man for millennia. Why, then, has Ramirez suddenly expressed an interest in it? Could it be that even Ramirez is shamed (as he should be) by the ludicrous CPAC goings-on in Orlando over the last few days and is doing what he can to divert his fans’ attention to other political and economic threats?
Ramirez has turned into a socialist.
Heard some good advice long ago about investing in the stock market: don’t invest what you cannot afford to lose. It’s a gamble – despite “past performance” there is no guarantee of future success (which is one of the first disclosures a legitimate broker provides) and one has almost no control over how the market works nor how a stock is affected. Not saying that it’s a bad investment – just saying that one needs to research what one invests in, and keep track of it – if one merely assumes investments will go well, they have another saying “a fool and his money is soon parted”…
Deregulation, the cornerstone of Republican Ideology.
Been blowing that bubble since the 2008 bailout convinced the players that they could NEVER lose money because the government would never allow it.
Nah, won’t happen. Capital keeps telling us they know how to control the cyclic effects of the ‘market’. I believe them, don’t you?
This is why basing the health of the economy on the stock market is like walking across quicksand. It is not based on business and industry performance, but a hope that stock prices will go up over time.
I’d rather do trading than rely on Social Security.
