If we're looking at higher capital gains taxes it could snowball pretty quick and the years lows could look good in 6 months. Of course some people thought the same when trump entered office, I had more than one friend liquidate before elections and lost out on some big gains before they were comfortable enough to reenter. All a game, 30 yrs in various roles from nyse fl, to salesman, to trader, to hf and still have no fkn clue!

I'm expecting around a +/- 10% swing on November 4th, just wish I knew if its plus or minus!

We may have a lot more to worry about if there is a change of command! Stocks may be the least of our worries

You need a chart to figure that out?

Sit tight for four months and everything will be alright.

yeah I’m still holding the bag on that. I think it will come back just hate having that money tied up with some of the other short term plays out there right now - although I probably would have lost with those as well.

Any more it seems you could do just as well with a pair of dice. Lol.

I've riden RKT down from $26, if it drops below $19 I'm out. Then I'll look for something that doesn't make any money. Buying a company that makes $4.5B, is growing market share, and is in a favorable environment (low interest rates) evidently doesn't work.

I'm currently sitting at a 28 average. While part of me wants to bail, the other part is thinking about doubling down, lowering my average, and rolling the dice.

I have RKT at a $27 average. And I got into AAPL before the split figuring it would just go up like every other stock has done lately. Wondering if I should take my losses or just hold through the election. It isn't a ton of money. But watching the market keep dropping doesn't inspire much confidence.
