Added SOFI at $18.xx. Most price targets are still at $25+ for it, and once their bank charter application gets approved, it should boost the SP.

Will add more CIDM if it goes below $1.50

Getting wrecked on LSPD, but it's a long term hold for me.

Bank charter can take up to 2 years though. I sold SOFI today, had bought at $14 and needed the funds.

True, but SOFI is also a long term hold for me so I'm willing to wait.

To each their own. I'm more aggressive when it comes to investing in TQQQ, but I understand what I'm getting into here and the inevitable 90%+ drop isn't going to faze me. Hopefully.

Re:/ 3x ETFs - from a few days ago (sorry to resurrect the regular topic).

I was poking around the internet and found a site that you all might be interested in - https://app.composer.trade/discover - it's a plugin for Alpaca brokerage in the US. We don't have access to Alpaca in Canada obviously but many of the "symphonies" (model portfolios) on the site use rule-based leverage via 3x ETFs. You can also make your own and backtest. A little cleaner than portfolio visualizer. I thought you all would find it worth a look (I'm not condoning or condemning this investing approach).

SQ is joining the party. It seems that everything is running away from Fintec and back to the major money center banks... but then stocks like V and MC should be up.

The reasoning is sound but the current Fintec trend is not your friend on this one.

I am the outspoken one against TQQQ. It is an unnecessary challenge to peace and tranquility.

I bought HYZN at $5.80 a few weeks ago (after the short report). Currently at $8.30.

Lotsa' hype around this.

I'd like to think I get plenty of peace and tranquility despite the fact that I invest in TQQQ/UPRO Winking Face

ZM -6% after-hours
That's how ER have been this quarter


Recent Fintech downtrend is so strong I don't even know why - b/c of Rates going up?
SQ PYPL SOFI plus BNPL names
ARKF -5% today

When I see -10~-20% drops on so many names without news, it's big warning
