The Upcoming Stock Market Collapse | Round 2


When it comes to investing in 2020…here’s everything you need to know, WHY the stock market seemed to sell off out of nowhere, how this is SPECULATED to be the doings of a company called SoftBank, and then we’ll talk about Tesla. Enjoy! Add me on Instagram: GPStephan

My ENTIRE Camera and Recording Equipment:

First, we need to talk about SoftBank – because this could, in theory, explain SOME of the recent run up in the stock market – and then, the subsequent, quick decline.

For anyone who’s not aware, Softbank is an investment conglomerate and holding company worth somewhere around $113 BILLION DOLLARS…and lately, they seem to be the center of a lot of controversy. An article just published by CNN explains how SoftBank could be the NASDAQ “whale” that has the power to manipulate the entire market – and here’s how that works.

SoftBank invested $4 BILLION DOLLARS into certain tech companies through what’s known as a call option – this means SoftBank pays a “Small Fee” for the RIGHT to buy a certain stock, at a certain price, by a certain date. When SoftBank invests $4 BILLION DOLLARS into the market place buying up specific stocks all at once…they have the power to POTENTIALLY MOVE THE ENTIRE MARKET alongside with it, because SOMEONE ELSE needs to buy those 100 stocks to make the transaction. That now gives the theory that – possibly – traders like this have the power to influence and move the market, either up like we’ve seen recently – or down, when they begin to sell.

As far as what you can do about it – HONESTLY, I don’t see this as a big deal. Drops like this are NORMAL, they’re not causes to panic, and as long as you have a plan to hold your investment LONG TERM – just see these little dips as “flash sales,” buy more – and hold on long term. In the big picture, it doesn’t matter.

BUT, if you’re investing in risky stocks with no knowledge of what you’re investing in, and you’re only buying in because you don’t want to miss out on the hype money train…then yeah, you’re better off selling, and holding out until you have a better grasp of your investments, and this should NOT be a market to gamble money you can’t afford to lose. ONLY invest in stable funds or stocks you REALLY know the fundamentals of, long term – and that’s it, for 99% of you watching. Buy and hold, as they say…

Finally…lets talk BRIEFLY about Tesla NOT getting into the SP500, and now it’s subsequent 35% DROP in a matter of a few days.

Now, here’s the thing – in order to be eligible for SP500 inclusion, a company must hit a few key criteria points, one of which being that they’ve had 4 quarters of profitability – which, TECHNICALLY, Tesla just hit. HOWEVER…just because a stock meets all the criteria of getting into the SP500, doesn’t mean it’s automatically going to be added in.

There is a committee of 9 members that meet every month to decide on who gets added – and who gets removed – from the index, and how they vote which stocks get added or removed isn’t known and isn’t published ahead of time. It’s speculated that Tesla is just too volatile to be added to the index quite yet, and for a stock to swing + or – 35% in a few days, at a hundred billion dollar valuation, isn’t quite something best suited for positioning within an index.

In terms of where we stand today – I’m not too shocked that the markets have fallen so much over these last few days. The stock market has risen nearly every single day for almost 2 weeks straight…there’s no “REAL REASON” for that, and as illogical as the stock market is – just like we can’t question why it’s going up, we can’t reason why it’s going down – it just does what it wants, and it’s up to us to enjoy the ride, have fun watching it – but, at the end of the day, the ONLY thing we can do is consistently buy and hold – that’s it.

    I am a 20 year old college student. I started watching your videos when I was around 16 or 17 and the day I turned 18 I opened up a brokerage account and by 19 I made my first deposit into a Roth IRA. You are so inspirational to kids like me. Who love finance, credit cards and anything to do with money. Over my brokerage and Roth I generate over 500 dollars a year from passive income and something you said stuck with me. “Once you make your first dollar in passive income, it becomes addictive and you just want more.” I tell my friends this all the time and even got some looking to invest now. Your influence goes beyond your subscribers on this channel. Every-time you post I can almost promise I’m one of the first to view it! Once again, I love what you do and and really try and model myself after you!!

    I got tired of people telling me how much they make from frox trade rather was interested in how they made their profit AND that's how i got to where I am today. If you're interested in making good money online through FOREX trading. I think you need some advice from an expert not just watching videos. That's how i understood forex and now i ean up to $25.000 weekly from forex. If guess I can improve then you can do too. feel free to contact mr carlos @carlos_1uptrades for help on Instergram, tell him i recommended him to you

    Advice on GOOGL

    Hi guys,

    I’m new to investing and trading and I started in August. At first my goal was to just to buy standard ETFs like VOO and VGT to get better returns over the long haul than a savings account. However, I also wanted to invest in tech and gaming – two sectors I’m semi familiar with. I bought two shares of GOOGL at an average price of 1532. It has never come close in the past month to breaking even and because of that I’ve missed opportunities like buying GameStop a week ago or Microsoft. So far I’m down almost 300 on GOOGL, any advice?

    If you want me to start Exposing people on videos starting with Graham Stephan Like my comment. I dont like making videos, but guys like Graham Stephan that seems legit and nice need to be exposed to. These guys sort of piss me off the most because they try to walk the line of I'm good. Infact they are not as good as you think they are. I even know things that even coffee zilla has not even mentioned yet. I care about others and I care about the truth and the whole truth. Graham Stephan is just one of many that might seem nice but is not that nice regarding really helping others. They will all be exposed and might need more than one video per person. So give me some feedback and I will respond back. Have any questions I will answer right away as soon as possible. I just hate half fake people or fake people that lie. If you want to know specifics about any youtuber including Graham Stephan I have no problem exposing him in a message either.

    Interesting! I watch several Youtube videos on how to trade in the stock market but haven't made any headstart because they are either talking some gibberish or sharing their story of how they made it and I do not want to make mistakes by taking risks in my own hands.

    This is the second time watching your video..good one. Anyway, I’m a dividend investor but it’s a slow and steady growth. I’m 39 and currently have $200k a portfolio and plan to retire at 60. My goal is to reach 2 million by then…I repositioned some of my dividend stocks using a broker. Now, I’m buying fractional shares of TSLA, AMZN ,NIO ,NVR again. Before, I’m after dividends for passive income but it’s slow growth so now I’ll take my chances on high growth stocks like SHLL, WKHS, PLNHF 13 I've gotten a 120% increase this year but hopefully I’ll reach a million sooner

    I think masses of people treat technology companies the way they treat gold, as an acquisition in times when the market is risky designed to preserve your capital value

    Tesla is looking for a consolidation price at 370-400/ share, anything above that is way overvalued at least till prob next year but time will tell. Well it's good i listened to my instincts so I sold at 450.

    I’m taking of putting big amount of my money into S&P 500 and hold it long term (at least a few years). Do you think I should do it now or wait until the prices become cheaper (if they do)?

    I used to see forex as a side income but it has proven to be a major source of my income ever since I came across MR Anthony Williams, his experience of the forex market is unrivaled.
