Is this normal for a day?
Is it like this everyday volatility wise? Or am I in the wrong places? I'm a complete noob when it comes to this. TIA

Re: amzn
so now is time to buy?
I don't think so. They have been loosing money for several quarters and don't expect a major improvement in the next quarter. Although do as you wish. There are better stocks to go for.
You gotta look at history a little.   Its back up to $303

I'm still holding on to $S I think the expectations can't get any lower, and I think they're going to hit a turning point somewhere in '15.

if you buy and sell stocks shouldn't you understand the amount your making? if your gain was %20 but %15 goes to taxes...

Hence open an IRA.

If you sell BABA now you will have to pay taxes on short term gains which I think is your regular income rate
if you wait till its long term (1 year from purchase) IIRC you only pay max of 15% rate
But obviously don't wait for the year if you can make more by selling earlier

The only thing I know is that I don't loss by earning money in stocks (sounds strange, huh?),

My accountant told me some people could earn a few thousand bucks but they don't know that they're losing out on some tax credits which is grater then what they earned, but by me that's not the case so I shouldn't worry about it, that's all I know...

you should ask your accountant to explain the advantages between long term gains vs short term and if you should open an IRA
