    Yeah, I gots boost
    You don't have to sell it all. Sell some to capture some profit, and then let the rest ride if you're bullish on it? :notsure:

    Ok, I've been lurking in this thread for a bit and you guys have finally got me convinced now is the time to start up the Roth IRA I have been telling myself I should have (any time should have been a good time to start, just so happens I have been bored at work and finally took the time to do some research and open the account). I am going the Roth route as I already have a 401k through work and the idea of tax free income to supplement my other retirement plans in the future is appealing. Our 401k has a pretty limited choice of funds to invest in so I feel like jumping into the wild west of the open market is going to carry a bit of a learning curve. I think I've done pretty ok for myself with my 401k hovering around double digit returns over the last 3 years even after the dumpster fire of 2018.

    I don't plan to invest whole lot of cash off the bat so I am trying to decide what direction would be best for me to go with this new account. Either just buy a small number of shares in 1 or 2 ETFs to spread the investment across a little more of the market and let it go to work or buy a larger number of shares of a few low cost stocks and see if I can make a little money to reinvest and continue playing. I really just want to get a little experience and feel confidant that I'm not going to lose cash that could be put to better use as I continue to save and add to the account.

    Any thoughts or suggestions for someone just trying to learn the market?

    Depends on the ETF but I would check it for fees. Some of them will get you. Some will make periodic "adjustments" that may not benefit you. Just have to do your due diligence.

    If you want to just ride the market up this year (which is where I think it is headed), and get a decent dividend at the moment, I’d throw it all into SPY or VOO.

    If you’re going for a simple set it and forget it type investment just put it all in a low cost index fund that tracks the S&P500. You won’t get killed on fees, it won’t be as volatile as individual stocks can be, and it’ll net a good (7-8%) but not exceptional long term rate of return.

    If you want to mess around trying to pick individual stocks, dabble in options, or anything else I would say only do that once you’ve fully maxed out your tax advantaged account contributions and only do it with money you’re okay losing.

    Trade talks concluded today, let's see what happens. Rumors of a deal being made are already making the rounds.

    I am already working my 401k for as many benefits I can get from it with a decent amount of it going into an S&P500 index fund as well as a number of other indexed and actively managed funds.

    This account is going to be more of a supplemental account that I will add cash to when I have some extra to invest and maybe take some chances with. That being said I think I will probably jump in on a few individual stocks and see what happens, I want something I can watch and be a little more active with than the mutual funds in my 401k and if I ended up losing some or all it's not the end of the world.

    Germany is in a recession. Looks like a 10% off coupon when my 401k money gets deposited in the next week

    I bought a lot during the correction. My account balance basically stayed where it was as I added and the value dropped. That was not fun to watch. It sure is going up now, I can’t wait for a good run!

    I got so used to losing 1 or 2% daily I forgot what a normal market looked like. I think we’re going back up unless the Fed decides to halt it.

    You were pretty close on the 1.8%.
    Doesnt the fed raising rates signal they think the economy is healthy and on track? I would think the stock market would go up on news like that.
    does it go down due to people that buy stocks with adjustable rate loans?

    There has been a lot of debate about whether the Fed should pay any attention to the stock market, or only the economy in general. My opinion is that if they ignore the stock market and base rates on the economy only, and it causes the market to tank, the market tanking will negatively impact the economy. That would go against the Fed’s goal and obviously not be good, so they have to look to the market at least a little bit. Jerome Powell mat act like he’s not basing rate hikes on the stock market, but I think the market is affecting his actions on rate hikes. In general though, hiking rates should mean the economy is strong.

    Any predictions for this week. I think the government shutdown will end this week and we might get good news about the China tariffs and s&p will be up 4.5% on that.
