My ENTIRE Camera and Recording Equipment:

First, in terms of WHY the market is going down – here’s what’s coming into play, all at the same time: DEEP DOWN – what all investors DON’T like – in ANY MARKET – is uncertainty. Investors don’t know how policies might change over the next few years – they don’t know how tax rates might affect them – they don’t know how to base their future projections – and because of that, most investors and analysts get a little more cautious and play it a LITTLE SAFER in case things don’t turn out as they expect.

LPL research in September here:

And also – this is probably the most relevant for a LOT of people watching – especially in terms of how NOT to lose money – and that all has to do with one word: DEBT.

Yahoo recently reported that 43% of retail traders are now trading with leverage…if we break that down further, 23% are trading JUST using options, and 10% are JUST using margin…signaling that MAYBE we’re in the middle of an “options boom.”

In the last YEAR, options trading has increased in popularity by 45%…and when we look back historically, we can see that options trading increased in volume over the last 12 months, and began their slow trickle upwards once Robinhood was introduced, and then once brokerages began offering free stock trading.

That could explain some of the volatility in today’s market – Goldman Sachs estimated that now, 20% of all SP500 options traded in the second quarter had a maturity of less than 24 hours, up from 5% in 2011-2016…that means, people are leveraging their money 100x with short term, speculative bets on where the stock market is going to be headed in a 24 hour period.

That leads to the notion that, POSSIBLY – tech options trading has influenced the entire market to rise up abnormally fast, and then plunge rather quickly as options traders bought up – and then SOLD their holdings.

Anyway, I also think this would be a CRITICAL warning to any new investors out there to preferably NOT use leverage when buying stocks…the fact that 43% of traders are using some margin or trading options is rather concerning, and I guarantee this can’t end well and it’s only a matter of time until the tables turn and people lose a LOT of money.

So, yeah – I mean, obviously, you know I’m just going to say the same “buy and hold!” that I’ve been repeating for YEARS nonstop, even while the stock market was dropping 40%….if you’ve watched more than a few of my videos by now, this isn’t any surprise. But, I do want to use this as a time to caution you that you SHOULD be prepared for more volatility over the coming few months, you should understand how options trading is going to magnify these swings both positive and negative, and you should MAKE SURE you don’t trade on margin or trade options UNLESS you really know what you’re doing, or you have money that you can afford to lose.

    ARLP is a great business, it has very good potential. In the near future it's sure that there will be a major upsite for them. An important sign and also a good argument is the price of natural gas, which is quickly going up. Energy producers are now using thermal coal instead of natural gas for their plants. This will bring at a very strong demand of coal for ALLIANCE. After very long documentation and speaking to their professional management, I am sure that Alliance has the potential to bring easy money for smart investitors. I have already bought a very strong amount of stocks because it is very safety. EASY HEAVY MONEY!! Good luck to everyone!

    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!!

    Technical analysis seeks to predict the movement of asset prices regardless of what is happening in the wider market. Essentially, the process involves studying the paths of a particular asset movement in the past so as to establish a sustainable pattern that can be used to predict future movements. Ivanova Valerie is my mentor and I encourage everyone to invest through him. He has the best trading portfolio I have ever seen.

    Awesome and educational video you provide on here 📚, Thank you so much. Are you aware the price action seen by Bitcoin throughout the past couple of days and weeks has been rather boring, with the benchmark cryptocurrency caught within a firm bout of sideways trading that has offered little insight into its mid-term outlook. Bulls were able to defend against a break below a crucial level yesterday, with the recent dip below $10,200 being met with serious buying pressure that ultimately led its price to rally back up towards the upper-$10,000 region. After facing some intense selling pressure at $10,800, BTC has been caught within a bout of sideways trading, with bulls and bears reaching an impasse as the market heads into its weekend trading session. It’s not unusual for the market to see heightened volatility throughout the weekends. How it trends throughout this two-day period tends to set the tone for the week ahead. One analyst observed in a recent tweet that Bitcoin is trading firmly within its Ichimoku Cloud at the present moment. The upper and lower boundaries of this cloud define its near-term trading range, and which of these levels is broken first should provide insights into where it will trend next. According to the analyst, we might witness some more bearish trend, but the picture is not clear, so for now, one can only make a profit through trading, So his only advice to newbies and investors is to accumulate more bitcoin by investing and growing their portfolio strategically by trading with the well-known signal and program of Mr. Rodarius Marcell. an expert & prominent trader who’s helping investors and newbies accumulate more bitcoin through his amazing trading signals, with his program I was able to make *7btc trading with *I.5btc in 2 weeks with this same Rodarius strategy. His signals are effective and his trading strategies are Easy to Trade with. reach him on telegram Rodariusmarcell orWhatsApp+1 (256) 4OO‑O44O –__
