IMHO stay away from picking stocks until you have a bit of a better understanding of the stock market.

To short a stock means to borrow shares to sell in anticipation of them going down in price.  Then the short seller can buy shares at the lower price to repay the shares he borrowed.
Not understanding a technical terminology in stock trading doesn't necessarily equate with not understanding the fundamentals of analyzing whether a company is currently underpriced considering its growth potential and value.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Except that short positions are a factor as well as other factors which someone who does not understand what shorting is likely won't know. Understanding the fundamentals is for long term investaments not short term trades which can remain wrongly valued for extended periods before they reach their true value.

Possibly a bit late to jump on that bandwagon.
I think so too, it can bounce up from here ,already down close to 56 points in less than 2 weeks, but if it closes below 90 we can see an acceleration in the down trend .

Wonder whats more valuable to the hackers, the SS information or the insider knowledge that the stock will crash.

Even an adult can use a robo advisor like acorn, betterment etc and those are fairly simple.
Nothing like that for a minors account?

A robo adviser does not guarantee performance. It simply helps you to allocate money to various passively managed funds. The comparison to CDs is unwarranted. Need to be careful when dishing out financial advice.
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

Who asked for a guarantee on performance? That's not what I understood the op to be inquiring about.

I don't know if that last part was directed at me. I am def not giving anyone advice. The only advice I ever give is are things that are without risk (CDS) or to go talk to someone who knows more than I do.

I'm just looking for an easy place to open a minors investment account.
