i went 100% long plus 50k of margin in late march as bill ackman cried like a little bitch on cnbc. the fed was buying corporate debt, interest rates were at 0% and inflation has been too low for the last 10 years. so i knew daddy jerome had a full clip to play with. plus i knew covid was a joke healthy people under 60

i can sleep well at night knowing you think this was stupid. that said, i agree most people are stupid and should only be allowed to invest in indices

i mean 99% is effectively everyone. i’m not white and you’re probably racist so i’m almost certain you wouldn’t include me in your 1% exception

Who cares. Bet $3k on whatever and then play with house money if you see gains. Hold your precious VTI just the same all throughout. You either make losses to contribute to a nice tax refund (making you feel as one with proles who are always getting these/bragging), or you stack cash. What's the problem.

Options are ridiculous for large sums imo but I find tiny pink VTI portfolios to be pathetic, may as well YOLO, JMO.

You should have to pass some kind of basic financial literacy test at minimum. There should also be rules where margin can only go to a certain percentage of net worth. I think with most brokers max margin is like 50% of the amount deposited. That doesn't take net worth into account so you can get situations like people putting all their savings in the market and ending up with a negative net worth.

all of this stuff reminds me of kids getting into 'xTREME' sports (skateboarding, BMX etc) and ending up breaking their legs and shit. It's just pure retardation.

"Should be regulated like gambling"

Enormous numbers of people go to the casinos nightly or weekly and lose boatloads of money

Lmao this reminds me of when we were kids during the Texas Hold’em era and you would have some poker nerd scream out to a guy playing recreationally “YOU CALLED 6-6 ON THE RIVER OMG YOU SUCK YOU SHOULDNT BE PLAYING WITH US” after the 6-6 guy beat the guy chasing a straight.

Who cares? His money is good no? Let him play the game.

gambling on sports and novelty futures (politics) is even worse (bc a wrong bet is worth nothing, you can still sell out of tanked options) yet I've made mid 5 figures from it doing it recreationally for 3-4 years around the nba playoffs
