This is my question for all the investors in this thread:

Inflation is on the rise and the devaluation of the dollar makes me hesitant to throw any money at the market.

Even with a potential to make money when the market is at it's peak right now, won't we all lose out on gains due to this devaluation?

I'm thinking about allocating my funds to another currency depending on the success of that foreign economy, but there lies the risk of that currency following the same suit of the dollar if the successes/failures of the US economy influence it.

I'm also thinking about investing in a foreign market (take Samsung for example [not Samsung Electronics], only traded on the Korean market/British market), but US brokers charge an arm and a leg for foreign transactions.

Well, IMO the markets are very overvalued. We're nearing all time highs yet the economy is not at all what it was in the late 90's when the markets were at these levels.

And inflation isn't as bad as most people think. But, I do think we'll see a period of deflation soon in which the USD will gain value and commodities will lose value (especially Gold).

As far as investing in foreign markets, be very careful. At the moment the U.S. has the strongest outlook IMO. Australia is second best. But Asia and Europe are bad investments right now. Europe is obviously in a recession and countries like China and Japan have warned of soft patches in their economy and slower growth coming. However the U.S. is actually bouncing back a bit, and Australia so far has been doing well.

I've never seen a negative P/E but negative EPS is bad...means they're losing money. Really depends on what the estimates are though, because they can be losing money but losing less compared to their prior quarters in which case it did better than expected.

Commodities are already dropping. I was trading Cocoa a month ago at around 2450, and Cocoa was down to nearly 2100 last time I checked...which wasn't that long ago. Orange Juice also dropped from 190 to 160.
Well they're going to keep dropping is what I mean. And the markets are simply lagging. I may not be right on that crash coming, but hopefully at least a correction in the markets is coming.

So inflation is scaring you from investing in the market?

I think letting your money sit is WAY riskier. Inflation will eat that sh*t right up.

Read a book. Invest wisely. And watch your capital grow. :dancingcool:

Big big big miss on the jobs data this morning. wow

I haven't bought the GLD puts yet, but the way things are looking right now, the markets will have an ugly month ahead of it. We should come back down to earth some.

Mentioned in my chat that I'm looking for GLD to break down to the $148 level...maybe even lower if it really gets bad.
In GLD May 154x puts at 1.43 ....

Finally some corrections. The market has been so bullish since December, practically straight up.

I flipped SVU today. Wonderful flip.

My profit on AAPL btw .. $1,001.37

Bought yesterday, sold today. Was up $1,700 yesterday on my LNKD calls but I got greedy and stupid. Now I'm looking at a $700 loss on that position...from a $1,700 gain

Had a good week though, so it's cool. Plus still time for LNKD to get back even or maybe even a profit if I'm lucky.

Can someone explain this to me...I'm also new to stocks. I was under the impression that if a stock is worth a certain amount, you can only buy stocks based on a multiple of that amount...how did you make a 1000 dollar profit if the price only moved by like 3 dollars between those days?

that is a options trade. Five 100 share contracts bought at the time for $1.75 per 100. So 5 x (1.75 x 100). Same calculation for selling the position.

Yeah it's an options trade, not stock trade. I didn't buy AAPL shares, I bought AAPL calls. Options are much more volatile than the actual stock (more risk, more reward).

An option consists of 100 shares of the underlying equity. So 1 contract at $1.75 is actually $175 per contract ($1.75 x 100 shares = $175.00). I had 5 contracts at $1.75 = $875 total investment (plus fees).

AAPL's stock actually gained about $15 the day after I bought, so the options gained quite a bit.
