    Questions for day traders

    Thanks I'll keep that in mind, of course i look forward to hearing about more tools and patterns, day trading is professional gambling so one pattern may not always work even if it nets a profit on average.

    Questions for day traders

    So, when you wake up in the morning to choose a nice stock to exploit, how do you start looking for it? I know that low-value, volatile stocks are ideal for day trading, but there are more than one of these. How can you predict when the price is going to spike so you can buy it before hand and...

    What's the difference between a debt and a liability?

    well, that's true, a clever accountant will make the company look healthier than it actually is. Companies, like the treasury, can manufacture value if you will. Trust nobody, trust in nothing!

    "Penny" stocks you own and why?

    I guess it's the case that stocks that don't cost much are a bad idea because they aren't popular. However, you can still make money off them. Also, how cheap is a stock before it's considered a "penny stock" on wall street?

What are some stocks/ETFs that have hit $0, or what keywords/terms can I use...

    How does inverted yield curve indicate recession?

    So yield curves are based entirely off of interest rates on treasury securities? If that is the case, then how are the market participants setting the interest rate? I thought the FED did that themselves based on inflation prevention, controlling unemployment, etc.?

    US stocks expecting 'very rough' 2019 that may see 20 percent lower

    it is interesting to me the amount of corporate debt that has been getting racked up, some theorize it will be the source of the next recession. This just makes me want to ask more questions though. How much debt can a company have before they go bankrupt? Which factors influence this?

    Weekend trading

    Hmmm, i don't know of any exchanges that allow for weekend trading, but on Robinhood you can make an order at anytime and it will execute right away on Monday. I think they allow for for trading on pre-market and post-market hours but I would check into that.

    Get in on index fund or just buy/accumulate ETFs?

    Hey everyone, I'm just wondering how I can get better returns on my vangaurd Roth IRA. I've read that ETFs overall have lower costs than mutual funds (similar to index funds i guess?), and the thing I like about them is they are very easy to trade. They function in the same way that stocks do...
