Re: 2021 Trading Thread

If you're looking for a long term hold in cleantech my two biggest holdings are PYR and HPQ.V but it'll be some time before they blow up for real, the feb highs were all off hype. PYR just made a 20% intraday swing, will be super volatile until they close a major contract.

Jerome Powell is going to become a weekly contributor on 60 Minutes at this rate.

Re: 2021 Trading Thread

Real talk though- need a good 10% correction under 4k then long the market. Can't hold cash vs. double digit inflation prints that are coming. Market doesnt sell off because of inflation, it sells off because it fears the Fed will tighten to fight inflation.

But the Fed has made abundantly clear they aren't tightening. Inflation or no inflation, they are going to print more money.

Yield curve control before rate hikes imo

Well, those XRT puts paid very nicely; the ETF is down over 6% since my post. I'm still in a bunch but am freerolling now.

Last time I checked GME was 6% of the xrt etf and now it's not even in the top 10. The biggest holding now is VRM and it's up 10% after hours on earnings release.

If jobs data does not improve how will Powell rationalize not tightening going forward? At least if the UE rate keeps going down he can point to that as a trade off for inflation. Same goes for ridiculously loose fiscal policy.

And then there are tax hikes incoming. That is how inflation is controlled in MMT.

Hey do we talk crypto miner symbols in here or another thread? MARA, RIOT, etc.

That's another sector I'm bottom fishing soon.

Re: 2021 Trading Thread

Depends on your risk tolerance, the Jr explorers will have the highest exposures but you're a bit late on that trend tbh

Getting flow through shares that explore in your area can give great tax benefits. Until you have to sell that is, capital gains are pretty massive when your cost basis is reduced to 0.

It's extremely risky and that's why the gov wants to incentivize investments in the space.

A mine that's already in production is safer but won't shoot up like 700% the way the Jrs do as commodity prices increase and projects become economical.

Look up Lassonde curve so you have an idea of where the play is in the life cycle.

On the equity side, Iíve been in COPX since last summer, much to my delight. Can pair that with something like BATT perhaps.

For Copper I've been waiting for FCX to dip a bit more.

Barrick Gold is essentially Gold/Copper play that many only know as a Gold Play. Stock probably would be higher if it was named Barrick Copper today.

Had 20 blink weekly puts from two days ago at close for $27.50 at $.50 that finally went in the money. I do plan to hold overnight here.

I don't know too much about the company but this WISH sell-off seems overblown. Long WISH via shares at spot 8.13 and some December calls (10c for 1.4).

Re: 2021 Trading Thread

No luck on my blink earnings play, so I guess it did dump over 8% today so I will be happy with that, if we can drop a few percent tomorrow I’ll take that too. Might have to settle for 1 bagger for getting greedy.
