It's long, but worth the time spent.

Not sure if it will remain available for free watching for very long. It's from a paid subscription channel.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

couple weeks...
Dont put money in to the market... Short-term is impossible to predict the market and the risk that your investments  will cause you heartache more than outweighs the potential gain.
If you are looking to park your money that's a different story. Also if you are looking for a speculative play or go in for a swing trade...I would suggest start with tiny positions ($5 on robinhood type accounts) in a company that you are familiar with to learn the rope and to see if you think its worth it

Ameritrade is rolling out TOS web. I'm stoked.
It's the best software I've ever used but it slows down a PC enough to make you cry...  the web version will have everything the desktop does, except for some customizations (which a lot don't use anyway)

So you have your terminology wrong. Putting money somewhere for a couple of weeks, other than 100% safe cash or cash equivalents, cannot be called investing. It could be called speculating.
One is gambling and the other is speculating.  ;)

Watch the interview with Tony Deden I posted, and then decide for yourself.

Many bought. Question is who bought on May 14 in the morning.
I did!

I usually suck at catching a bottom, but Iíve been good at it lately..

Others Iíve caught at the bottom:
STOR
WFC
AER

Hope it lasts..

Good luck! Do you keep it all for the long run or you try to time the market's peak hype too?

What he says actually makes sound sense and is the prevailing view in financial theory.
