    make up your own info about the company (since it can literally be anything about any company at any time, plus, the market can be doing anything as well) and then tell me if you sell or not.

    Why would I sell something two days after I bought it without any substantive change? I hold investments on average, about four years.

    That is absolutely hilarious coming from you, being a person that never, never, never, and never learns.

    If there ever was a person that is blind to fact and acts through emotion (love of Trump) no matter what is real, it is you.

    Perhaps, what you should do in the future before you make comments on anything, is look at yourself first for exactly what you are criticizing.

    Nonetheless, thanks for the comment. It has to be the loudest I have ever laughed in my life................they never learn, eh? hahahahahaha
    My guiding principles in life are to be honest, genuine, thoughtful and caring. Money is important but secondary.

    Well, in that case, that company is McDonald's, and no, I'm not selling.

    So, the market has hit a temporary bottom and won't go down unless things get worse, but traders will be sellers tomorrow?

    A good trading strategy is one that produces positive results regardless of how the market as a whole appears to be performing.

    Facts don't care about your feelings, but it seems the stock market does.
    Your right it is ignored. It is ignored in a huge way on a daily basis which is why we have such a volatile market.
    As an individual trader though you cannot trade with emotion. if you do then you will end up losing a whole ton
    of money. you will be chasing buys and sells. getting in wrong and exiting late.
    facts don't care about your feelings.

    i didn't say to make up a company, go look at their stock chart and then come back here with the brave prediction of what to do.


    the point, for those who haven't gotten it yet, is none of you know what the chart that i posted does in the following days/months. that is where the emotion creeps in as you're potentially up $3,000 or down $3,000.

    and i noticed only one person even gave effort to try to give an answer without knowing the future.

    and i'll add that you're gonna lose money on trades (if day or swing trade). minimizing loses is a huge part of trading.
