    Ways of researching stocks/ETFs that have dropped to $0?

    It's really easy to find information about stocks that are currently being traded, but to me it's also interesting to find out about stocks/ETFs that have resulted in complete failure, and what exactly happened there. What are some stocks/ETFs that have hit $0, or what keywords/terms can I use...

    How does inverted yield curve indicate recession?

    Overall you have explained it pretty clearly, but i generally want to know about all the aspects and factors when it comes to financial instruments which can get pretty complex and confusing.

    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?

    I've read the wikipedia page on options trading, but unfortunately i don't really understand what they are. Currently I just trade stocks and etfs, which is very simple.

    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...

    Should I stop being so bearish?

    The reason I started investing is that at the end of '17 a friend told me about the Robinhood app and eventually i decided to hop on board at the beginning of the next year. Overall the experience has been pretty interesting in fun, but a lot of times I like to just buy stocks, watch them go up...

    Does the world need wisdom?

    @NVP: Yeah you hit the nail on the head with that one :-). I'm glad to see that people here are more critical of capitalism than i would expect on an investing forum.

    How to do a full fundamentals analysis on a stock/bond?

    Thank you very much, I will rent the book next week from my library if they have it. I've already bought "the intelligent investor" 12th edition, and that so far has had a lot of useful information, but benjamin graham's writing style is very dry and I've only gotten through about 170 pages of...

    How to do a full fundamentals analysis on a stock/bond?

    I've been investing in the stockmarket for a little longer than a year since I've downloaded the Robinhood app, but I have only been putting around 5%-20% of my savings on there because I don't know what I'm doing. Otherwise I've just been sticking to vanilla investments like money market...
