I'm making decent change spending $1k on Desktop Metal every time it dips and then selling when it rebounds. Its been bouncing between $12 and $13.50 pretty regularly for awhile now. So far I'm up almost $4k just doing this regularly for a couple months. Not big money, but relatively safe money.

AMC at 65. Bought at 20.

I only put 500 in though so I'm not worried abou it falling.

If it keeps going on a GME like trajectory and get up to 300 then I'll be way more pissed that I didn't hang on then I will if it drops back to 20.

I had 1000 shares left over from the 1st squeeze & sold at 40 like a bitch. Bought some back in & let it run up. Profit is profit I suppose.

Still a good time to buy into crypto, at least the reliable ones. I bought in heavy when they all dipped because of the fake China news and am up around 30% since, with more room to grow to get back to the original value.

ETA: this is in a two week period

I got into Dogecoin kinda early and own about 11k coins. Yesterday alone I made about a grand, but half of that is gone today. Can be a finicky thing and I try not to look at it often.

Holy god thank the lord I sold my CVAC about a month ago when it got back to over 100.

Wow. Total crash and burn.

I didn't sell mine, that hurt. They may have been too slow with their testing and got hurt by the variants out there. More detailed analysis of the trials in a couple of weeks.

Ok just moved 5k into the Stairs App, which is sort of a crowdfunding real estate investment savings app.

Anyone have any experience with that app, or its sister app, Ground Floor?

I'm slightly nervous about doing it, but I've got all this money sitting in a checking account and it just doesn't make sense. And savings accounts are almost entirely pointless.

So I'm looking for some fairly safe vehicles to earn some decent interest that is less volatile than stocks (I've got plenty in stocks).

This seems like a decent spot.

are you looking for stock analysis, broad market stuff, general principles and best practices, price/portfolio monitoring sights?

I guess the research side would be helpful as well. I was asking for the actual sites to make the investments through.

I'll take any good resources. I have a sum that is uselessly sitting around and need to invest it.

Ah ok. I will give you my opinions on the brokerages as someone who uses 4 different ones. For the vast majority of people, a single one is fine, but there are some very niche advantages each has that really only matter for advanced use.

First off all most brokerages are free now. Robinhood made a living being the free brokerage, but now they are basically just a discount brokerage in a world where all brokerages have no commission trading. A lot of this comes down to preference, with the caveat that I would avoid robinhood unless your preference is a brokerage that is often down on the busiest trading days of the year, has non-existent customer support, and has all kinds of whacky bugs that are constantly being exploited.

I personally use SoFi, TD Ameritrade, Interactive Brokers, and Fidelity. Of these TDA is my favorite, but it was acquired by Schwab and I really don't know how that will change things in the future. SoFi is great if you're looking for a one stop shop for many finance needs. I use their credit card and redeem 2% rewards in crypto/stocks which has become my main credit card. SoFi (and CashApp) are very much targeting the same market as Robinhood (smaller accounts/beginning investors) but they Square and SoFI actually have good operations teams so if you're looking for a pretty interface and don't care about bells and whistles, these are good options.

TDA/Schwab and Fidelity offer pretty good research tools in their platform, are free, have good customer support, and are well entrenched firms that would take a serious black swan to go anywhere. These are safe choices, but with a big caveat that if you're interested in crypto at all, they don't offer it. Robinhood/SoFi/CashApp all offer both.

Interactive brokers I call the honey badger of brokers. They don't give a single shit what you do. You want to put on an obscenely risky trade on leverage? This is the broker for you. Want to short a foreign listed stock with hardly any volume? They don't fucking care. I love and respect them for it, but obviously not needed for everyone. They have good portfolio custom reporting and margin rates as well, but again, that is if you're dedicating a good bit of time to it.

TLDR; Almost all brokerages offer commission free stock trading. If crypto on the same platform is important to you, avoid the legacy guys. If not, click around on some of the sites and see which UI you like. There are tons of reasons to use one over the other for a professional trader, but for most people there are a lot that get the job done.


As far as resources go, I send this video to everyone who asks me about investing. I do a lot of whacky stuff in my portfolio, but my largest position is always, and probably always will be SPY (low cost S&P500 index)
