Ugly start to futures but night is still young. Its going to be interesting these next 2 weeks with big tech earnings and covid popping back up.


Three narratives: 1) COVID 2) Uncertainty on OPEC production 3) Its had a big run and need to correct/consolidate


Yeah. My portfolio was ok outside of the BA/BABA combo. My ACN, ZM, and TSLA puts paid off decently. I wish I had extended my expiring CCs last Friday to this Monday.


Maybe… Are you a Mucker or Darius acolyte?

Accumulating some more Apple shares today

Look out belowww

Leggo bears! Nah seriously I have vix 23c expiring tomorrow so let’s keep the momentum to the downside

I did sell some of them for a small profit on Friday and much more today. Just rolling the remainder in case there is a downward trend.

Dang... I called this and I still wasn't prepared. SMH. Sold out of VIX too early and didn't take enough of my positions off.

I added some overnight swings tonight in Apple, TQQQ and SOXL. If the new Delta variant is the true spark of today's selling, I imagine money will continue to flow into strong tech names. I also added GUSH for a bounce in oil. I did a bear spread on NVDA for the split. Especially on a 3% up move into massive selling, seems like a pretty good r/r.

I've been in the same boat the last 2 months. Overall portfolio has declined while I've had some solid winners, and thats largely due to some of my stock swings that have been bleeding out. Typically my best winners are a very small portion of my portfolio, but I am working on increasing that to have more weight

Hi Fish Fam! I have a pretty exciting opportunity/ interview with a rapidly growing life sciences business consulting company. It’s a bit of a stretch in terms of my industry experience, how can I best position myself to be an attractive candidate?

Finally watched The Social Dilemma on Netflix. It didn’t say anything that we didn’t already know about social media and big tech, but it’s still alarming and worth the watch. The biggest question I have after watching is why do people still romanticize FAANG? Is just purely the money and prestige? Are we selling our soul for a highly regarded exit opportunity? Just curious.
