    Thanks to you guys actually. All those anti-following guidelines posts = more sickness, death, hurting our economy. Thanks Trumpers.

    "Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve kept its policy measures steady, as expected, but Chairman Jerome Powell offered a sober outlook for the ecoomy and market against the backdrop of the raging pandemic."

    Trump's failure with Covid, vaccine distribution. That will be fixed.

    This Gamestop stuff

    "But it was intensifying speculative behavior among retail investors that was causing the most concern. Heavily shorted names, including GameStop and AMC Entertainment, continued to be pushed higher by amateur day traders in online chat rooms. Some investors are worried about mounting losses by hedge funds spilling over to other areas of the market as those funds sell other securities to raise cash. Investors are also concerned the speculative behavior is a sign the market is overvalued and a pullback is near."

    Dow closed 27,480 on election day.
    It closed at 30,303 today.

    Even after dropping today, Dow is up over 10% since election day.

    Thanks Joe!

    Marketwatch leftist finance news. MSM leftist Rags too

    “The drop for the Dow and the broader market comes as investors appeared increasingly concerned about COVID-19 vaccine distribution and fixated on the surge in prices in heavily shorted companies movie chain AMC Entertainment Holdings AMC, +301.21%and videogame retailer GameStop Corp. GME, +134.84%, which have been propped up by a band of retail investors on social-media platforms.”

    What started actually Reddit “Wall Street Street Bets”
    describes itself as “4Chan found a Bloomberg Terminal.”
    it has 2.4 million subscribers. They Honed GameStop

    MarketWatch? Same old JB. Marketwatch is too busy writing economy doomed and trying blame Trump! :xf.laugh:

    Do your own research. Marketwatch is hack source;
    Marketwatch NOT “unbiased Finance” :ROFL: worst Leftist.!
    Only thing give them credit for ? Allow comments! LOL.

    The “Gamestop stuff” wont be “debunked” Marketwatch
    Poor article, Having field day writing about down market.

    Samer you really need to broaden your horizons. Everything you don't believe is biased, hacks, fake news, etc.

    You have even called things that are objectively true and easily verifiable fake. You have done it time and again in this thread.

    A forever slow mind. You can't change 4 years of bad decisions in 1 week. Stop posting stupid stuff on the internet. You made months of dumb anti-American posts, that won't change in a week either. Biden will deal with the mess.

    I was more than happy to add shares to my long positions today.

    Though I invest in serious companies, not meme stock ponzi schemes.

    that was a poor MarketWatch article,

    and i already consider them leftist biased.
    We need specifics, Brad. “That was a strawman.”
    I mentioned how they eschewed why GS stock is up.
    Elon Musk helped by tweeting the subreddit group when they were all hyping up Gamestop.

    I wouldnt trust them for my finance news.
    They politicize finance too much for me;
    and innumerable Trump attacks uncalled for.
    I’ll bet you enjoy their coverage though!

    Marketwatch is garbage.
    It’d help if they mentioned. JB just picked poor article. They had worst garbage view Gamestop stock;
    “Spread by Social media”? i mean really

    Not basic Conservatives/Republicans where the disagreement is just on policy, like tax rate for rich.

    Most Trumpers in this thread are tho for months of anti-following guidelines posts which hurt people and our economy.

    Most Trumpers that wanted to throw out American votes.

    Most Trumpers that were ok with this Insurrection

    Most Trumpers that attacked the foundation of this country saying election is rigged.

    Most Trumpers that lie constantly, post bs stuff etc.

    Those types are shit in my eyes. Anti-American, Traitor types, nothing new.

    You can't tell me what's positive from what I just posted, so why would I like them? That wouldn't make sense.

    Can we go ahead and get a Samer list of approved sources?

    Because you know everything you don't believe is fake, because of the source, even if the thing itself is verifiably true.

    A couple years back a woman I know was telling me about a great new investment that guaranteed 30% per year profit. Guaranteed. I told her it was a scam. She though I just didn't understand - like a brick wall. Stopped talking to me.

    Met her again a couple years later - she was poorer and (hopefully) wiser.

    People want to believe what they want to believe.

    This ongoing nonsense about sources.

    I used Marketwatch and CNBC.

    Which are your favorite?

    Well ... although I have stated .. and stated it far before the election .. I am not a Trumper .

    I clearly condemned what took place at the Capitol building .. when it took place too ... I had no idea wtf was going on when the Capitol was entered ... aside from a phone call saying people were going apeshit and going inside the Capitol building ... which I knew was a very very serious situation for the country .. the extent of what exactly was happening in DC when it happened .. I had no clue .. I was driving 70mph when I got the phone call.

    I did say that I felt far to much was taking place at vote counting centers and because of the amount it .. I did question the votes

    but I have never said to throw the votes out .

    I have followed Plandemic guidelines religiously for the last 6 months .

    so you can trash me like you usually do .. but you are wrong about me being those things ..

    The SEC is responsible for regulating the stock and financial markets. There are rules against financial engineering.

    While the little guy sticking it to the big guys is a great story, this type of thing is actually quite dangerous for the stock market in general.

    It poisons the well for serious investment and could turn off an entire generation.

    GameStop is essentially Blockbuster of video games. Everyone knows how this story ends.

    Now they are targeting other garbage companies like AMC, Blackberry, Dilliard's, Naked, etc. This is nothing more than a modern day ponzi scheme.

    I dont think you understand.

    If the article was wack; (with regards to take on GS) will call it out. What makes it jucier, beside the fact?
    They are leftist or tend to lean left. Maybe more nuanced than i made it seem; but “Marketwatch” also adds on Political commentary.

    If JB posted this article (recent; updated 7 hours ago)
    i would not clown CNN’s leftist politics.
    Here is an example of Halley’s Comet.
    They gave facts like stock prices, reddit group,
    and even what he tweeted with a link to the tweet. Not Hitler, Brad. (today Holocaust remembrance day btw)

    This is CNN business. I gave credit to this piece on anyone who wants find more about Gamestop stock.
    This still would not preclude me for following their political coverage, but when you stick to a topic, and purely that topic, without projecting left bias (Finance). EE7B4E16-EC67-408D-A349-07FB26346979.jpeg
    https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/26/investing/gamestop-stock-elon-musk-reddit/index.html

    So nice try, Brad.

    I'm not wrong. You're doing revisionist history.

    You've been supporting Trump daily for 4 years, now you don't want to be a Trumper.

    While you might have been following guidelines yourself, I said messaging. You were posting about not wearing masks, they don't work etc. Called this a Plandemic.

    You did support throwing out votes. You did say election was rigged. You were ok with your own state having less drop off locations.

    But it has been an ongoing theme. You constantly mention sources, even if the underlying thing is factually true.

    You might disagree with opinions on things, but some things are factually untrue. This would be things like OAN showing a map where Trump had 400+ electoral votes including winning California.

    Which of these financial sources I use are Samer approved?

    Yahoo Finance
    Seeking Alpha
    Morningstar
    Market Watch
    TradingView
    CNBC
    BarChart
