Thanks a lot. Not gonna lie my mind is blown.

I’m waiting for Trading212 to approve my identity, does it normally take a while?
When you realise the game is rigged, it does take a bit of fun out of it, but it doesn't mean you can't plan.

As people have more 'down time' at the moment, I'll recommend this book.


To show you how completely (seemingly) unrelated things can actually be completely related.

And for predicting what can happen, I am aware of a company that had a research department that built software that analysed an employee and could, based on their CV, Current job title, age, and a few other 'available' data points, could not only predict their career trajectory but also guess at their annual review grades and the point they'd leave the company.

There is stuff that companies are doing that people don't even think could possibly exist. And the longer they think that, the better it is for companies.

80% of Stock Market trades are automatic and happen quicker than you or I could ever achieve. So they will ALWAYS get a better price, a smaller loss, than we can.

Disney stock shot up last night due to the fact they announced 50+ million subscribers to their services. I imagine it will shoot up again when their theme parks re-open in the summer

You could look at companies which will have 'summer openings' so companies like Merlin or just touristy stuff in general which is rock bottom right now is worth buying imo

Jon will probably kill me for saying this lol but I was thinking more can I not just say put £10 into a company on Trading212 and wait for it to get to like £11 or £12 and then sell it? And then rinse and repeat?

Wouldn't they take commission? If it were that easy I imagine nobody would ever lose.

look, with the share thing

sign up to trading212, get 20 other people to sign up who you know via your link, you'll make AT LEAST £150+ I would say, if not more and then either playing around with THAT cash if you want to buy more shares or look to withdraw it

Yeah go into the app, click the burger menu in the bottom right (the 3 lines thing) and then you will see 'Get Free Shares!' there which gives you the link to give out

I won't do these sorts of things on principle. I won't prostitute my reviews for a reward so someone in china can get their crappy plastic widgets up to 5 stars and further up the search results. It makes a mockery of the whole review system and makes one question just how many reviews on Amazon and trustpilot are legitimate.
Oh I would. 2 of those reviews for a smartphone? Of course I would! But I know that can't be thast easy.

if you run a blog or website that is about promoting garden stuff like lawnmowers, kids toys etc you must be (a) bringing in some great traffic (b) earning boatloads off your affiliate links

homeschooling supplies, printing teachables etc - all that sort of content must be doing great business!

This is how most 'people' do stock trading. Try to predict the result based on the information at hand. Throw in some 'trending' data and you come to predicted outcome.

But if Disneyland doesn't re-open OR opens and then has to close again, the share price will tumble.

NOT A RECOMMENDATION

Perhaps look at more of the fixed requirements of people - power/phones/internet/gas/water and chase a dividend rather than buy/sell profit.

Dividends are usually a little easier to understand and companies set them themselves, rather than stock price which is set by 'the market' (80% automatic trading)

My best mate did a 'Win' acca of

Man U
Arse
Chelsea
Liverpool

Then Top two of division 1, 2 & 3,

THEN

Rangers & Celtic

He made more money than he lost, but if two teams were playing each other, he'd not bet on either.

Am I missing something here? Some of those Amazon ones claim to give you a 250 points bonus, and a smartphone from their shop only costs 500 points? That can't be right? The products are absolute shite at the moment it must be said but who wouldn't do a couple of reviews for a brand new smartphone? Again, that can't be right :D

Thats 500,000 points.

You have share tax of 0.5% (I think) - plus a lot of trading platforms charge per trade. I use one that charges £1.12 per trade.

Based on this you'd have to sell at about £12.00+ (20% Increase) to make a profit of a couple of pence.

Where-as, if you have £100 worth of shares, you still pay 50p ShareTax and then £1.12. You only need the shares to increase 2% and you'll be making a (slight) profit.

Expand that up to hold £100,000 of shares. If the price increases 2% then you sell and you've made pretty much £1.5k.

Yes Jon. In fact Amazon emailed me saying that however I appealed then I spaced the reviews out more and its been fine ever since. Additionally I hate the idea of putting false reviews up so I tend to go back ages later after payment and edit my review to be truthful.

That's simple +EV advantage play. A good strategy for acca insurance no lay bets.
