Last 2 days have been brutal for the market. Wonder if this is the beginning of the burst of the bubble.

Betting against the Bucks is the easiest money you'll make.

You don't know this, but it was actually you who gave me this idea last year. Should've been doing this for years - I could've retired by now!

Wow, that's really cool! Glad there was some good that came of this season.

I think I'm going to start dabbling in options again. It's been awhile but I have some extra cash to play with. I had some pretty good software then but its obsolete now. Long holiday weekend is a good time to do some research and get back in.
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

A buddy of mine told me to get in on SHLL at 18 a share a few weeks ago... I didn't, and it is now sitting at 53.

Nope, nothing else just sharing some misery.

I wouldn’t feel too bad about not listening to a shill for SHLL. That’s just good sense.

Yea you called this one! Thanks!

Just a little patience with this stock. It was annoying holding onto a penny stock for so long, but it was inevitable somebody was going to buy them out. I thought it was already valued in, but I was wrong. I'm going to sell at open.

Any other stocks you watching?

FCEL down 17% today. They blew earnings, but I feel this one follows Nikola, which isn't a good thing lol.

Yeah... That one hurts a bit. I have the majority of my investment money in that bad boy. Still holding long and strong. I have a nice entry position, was hoping it was going to break and stay above 3... Not so much. That was a kick to the nuts. Just an opportunity to buy more cheaper. I think 2021 2022 is the year this makes huge strides... They are working on their back log... Haven't really been getting a lot of new business.. seem to be focusing on the reoccurring revenue. They have sound tech though... and the carbon capture market is untapped. I will just take it as an opportunity to buy cheap shares. Future is bright.

At a good price now for a buying opportunity before merger.

Anyone else planning on trying to snag some Snowflake IPO on Wednesday? Part of me wants to go big, other part is telling me I really don't know what I'm doing and to not throw away my emergency funds.

I got in Rocket at 19.50 and would like to buy some more at its' current price as well.
Can't gamble feeding baby on that dope money, might not always be sufficient.

Keep an eye on DPHC. Feels like that’s the next EV play.

It was suppose to IPO at 75-85 but it will be now be between 105-115

I think it's going to be too pricey. Everyone and their mother wants to buy this one.

Already up 18%. I was waiting for a dip for like 4 days but it kept going up 10%. Winners keep winning lol

I'm guessing it will start to drop once it hits $50 like SHLL.

Any guesses as to how high its expected to climb after the merger?

Im sitting on NFIN right now, another SPAC thats appears to have a lot of potential.

The SPAC market is getting pretty competitive now. SHLL is going down because people are taking profits to buy into other SPACs.

I don't think anyone could actually tell you what the price target for SHLL should be. You'll probably have to wait when it gets closer to the merger to see what they have planned.

DPHC, KCAC, HCAC, PSTH, FEAC, SPAQ, IPOC are just a few other SPACs that people are talking about a lot.

FWIW, I sold out of SHLL @ $52 a share. I don't know if/when I will buy back in. SPACs just seem like a gamble to me.

Was wondering if anybody here had any insight on the crypto market - correction, the sub-bitcoin crypto market. I know enough about securities to invest with confidence, but to say I am a novice with crypto would be a pretty good promotion. I have been following Ripple from a great distance since about a month before it spiked to $3+ 2 years ago and am considering sticking some play money into it over the next few weeks. Seems like it's found a price support in it's current range, and I feel like they're in a better position than some other crypto's to face any regulation of the market. Appreciate any thoughts :D

Oh yeah, almost forgot, Trade Bledsoe!
