Yes. If tech earnings beat expectations while retail and industrials come in as ‘not as bad as feared’ then you could see a new leg up.

If he really cared then he would have supported masks and other measures - which would have allowed us to reopen sooner and stay open.

It’s really pitiful how far behind we are in reopening compared to any comparable European country....

Hi Fishes,

I have a doubt. How people get multiple offers, meaning once we recieve any offfer from a company and if we accept that offer, then immediately BGV will happen right. Lets say I got another better offer and I accepted that too, now two BGVs are going on for me. And mostly these BGVs will be handled by the 3rd parties. What happens, if both company I had accepted has the same BGV party?

BGV - Background Verification.

First time investor and trying to do tax filing. If you bought the same coin or stock at 100 and then next day at 200 (cost basis 150 per share/coin is), and your investment goes up to 600, (300 per share/coin) and you sell only one share/coin and receive 300, does that still create taxable event or is it considered just taking out your principal investment amount until you sell more than 300? Also is transferring coin from one wallet to another a taxable event or considered selling/buying?
