Thank you! I already answered most of these. Like is really everything in life 401K and Roth IRA and that’s it? Like we live by doing the same thing until we die? ThTs my issue, I’m getting restless thinking this is the only way…
🤣if there’s money to be made, people don’t give 2 s&$ts about America or what it stands for. Money is money
Ok that's a start but really doesn't answer any questions that are needed here. Your mom "does the bulk", what does that even mean?
6% is a pretty lousy deferral rate for a household who's income is nearly $200k a year and who it sounds like is significantly behind where it should be. It's better than nothing but the general recommendation is to save at least 15% of income to retirement and tha'ts for someone who's young and has 30+ years ahead of them. The old benchmark said that by age 50 someone should have 6x their income saved for retirement.
Your parents should be aiming to save as much as they can to tax deferred retirement accounts as they can, IRA, 401k are 2 of the most common types. Due to your parents ages they are both eligible for catchup contributions, so they can each contribute $30k to a 401k account, and $7500 each to an IRA. Past that they can look a taxable brokerage accounts etc.
$60 a year for them to use ALL your money to enrich themselves more isn’t a fantastic deal dumbass.

candle patterns (unfilled gaps, hammers/ shooting stars, evening stars, engulfing candles, & doji all have high success rates)
technical chart patterns (cup & handles, head & shoulders bullish/ inverse, double tops, & flags all have high success rates)https://tradingcenter.org/index.php/learn/chart-patterns#:~:text=1%20Success%20rate%20%28%E2%89%A5%20break-even%29%3A%2081%25%202,Average%20rise%3A%2043%25%203%20Percentage%20meeting%20target%3A%2071%25

U have 2 understand options decay rate b/c in the last month the option will lose half its value & if it's out of the money the decay is worse. I usually sell short dated puts or calls to collect the premium if there is high volatility. High volatility is good for selling options, not buying b/c of the intrinsic value decay. Buying out of the money less than 1 week to expiration options w/ high volatility is almost a garenteed way to lose money. I typically don't buy if the volatility for that option is over 50% sometimes 60%, but it depends on the technical patterns & if it's a earnings play, index reversal play, etc. If the technicals are telling u that the trade is still intact & your in the money, roll the option out 2 secure your principal.
one of the biggest things with options is using triggers/ stops especially w/ short dated options bc the price movement can happen in seconds. I usually put on a trailing stop right after I purchase using moving averages, Delta, decay rate, & average price movement as a guide, but if the ts price is not wide enough it will trigger on open.
The only time my trade is not profitable is when I get greedy or don't stick to my check list. The best thing about options is that you can fix a bad trade.

> ts important to have a new car with a warranty so I don't have to worry about new issues popping up as I worry my car's repairs will be opening a can of worms.
The average car on American roads right now is 12 years old. You don't really need a warranty. Especially if you hardly drive.
You're about to incur gigantic amounts of new expenses due to the forthcoming child. It would be the least good time to incur a new expense. When it comes to the safety of your child, the parents being financially stressed (which can manifest itself in fatigue, anxiety, and a host of other ways) is far more dangerous than a slightly older car.
I just bought a bunch of 6-month t’s. People are still very interested - practically zero risk at ~5% ? Can’t say NO to that.
It's estimated there was demand for 15 million TS tickets and there were about 3 million seats available. They didn't understand the implications and day one was a mess. Ticketmaster wound up canceling the general sale and selling the remaining tickets in sets of 2 to verified fans who couldn't get in on the first day (including me). Ticketmaster assigned the seats, it was take it or leave it, so there wasn't a mad scramble for seats. That seems like the fairest way to allocate.
That was my understanding. Like TS's team settles on ticket prices (price of their product) and sure the owner of the ticket rights at given venues get their cut (ticketmaster fee). But then those tickets are instantly somehow bought up and reposted (for significantly more) with ticketmaster getting their fees (again) applied as a percent of the new higher prices.
Right? Isn't that where the conflict of interest is? They are financially very motivated to support a secondary market for tickets because they get to tack on their fees every time. So the selling of the tickets initially is SUPER suspect. Anyone who has tried to get tickets to a reasonably popular event when they go on sale knows it usually means some F'ed up process that it certainly seems like secondary sellers don't seem subject to. IDK if there's proof of that collaboration though. Maybe more that they just don't care about people who figure out that the system is being exploited (since they make money on it)?

No worries! I'm working on something similar, and even if you eat into that cash a bit, it still (making the extra large payments) will free up future cash flow! I'm about $50k deep myself, and looking at being close to $35-40k deep come july just doing what I described above.
While $50k isn't much (relatively speaking) and i've got it easily managed, i'ts still enough to make me take a step back and re-evaluate priorities, especially with tax refund and other things coming in now, so i've been going through some of the exercises you have (though in a less stressful manner)
I could nuke what i can all at once, but what if I needed to hit an ATM because my CC got jacked again and I have to wait for a replacement card?
On that note - leave a card at home in a safe that you never use so you always have a backup! And keep a checkbook too - you might not think about it, but a check cashing place when all your wallet is trashed and cancelled might save your ass some day. Always have backup plans!

I would sell half, if it goes up 50% sell a quarter. If it goes up 100% sell the remainder. Set a 10% trailing stop. That way you can profit three times and protect yourself with the t.s.

Anytime someone spews that drivel i ask them “what is a migrant farm worker?” And “why don’t we just arrest the people that hire undocumented workers?

Thank you! Honestly, the only reason I can think of for all these other bitter people that are jumping on the bandwagon is because they just don’t know what they are doing. Like yes, it takes a marginal amount of thought, responsibility, and time to pick the right place. But gotdamn, t’s not that hard. They just gotta stop being so damn lazy.
And also, WHO THE HELL is okay with spending $225/ night in a hotel room. That is egregious. My last ABnB was borderline resort caliber and was $225 total, and that was 5 whole days. Baffles me.
I have a TS and when I got it, I had $165k debt and income of 30k. 🤷🏾♂️ but my credit score was in the 740 range
I have seen folks get hired in as security engineers for what you are looking for. I know contractors at close to 200k after 10 years of experience and a TS. I'm a cybersecurity architect with 20 YEO, numerous certs and a master in cybersecurity. I couldn't get more than 200k locally, so I took a remote role with a tech company that put me at 300k.
The CASP+ should be OK for the 8570 requirements buy you may want to get the CISSP and cloud security certs to really stand out.
Sometimes I see random posts on social media advocating for all kinds of wackadoodle things as "Passive Income" and I just shake my head before moving on. Apparently that movement is now large enough that it made the NYT (gift link, bypasses paywall).
Just a general rule - if it requires starting and running a small business... It probably shouldn't be called "passive". My index funds are passive. My side gig is not, even if I can do it from bed.
This is the best advice. Go to an air force recruiter tomorrow. Tell her to go any 1N career field. Get the TS clearance and 4 years of IC experience. Use that time to take free masters classes, the free room and board, and pay off any debt. Use tuition assistance to get more free masters level education. Will start out as an E-3 with her education level. 2k a month for loans, and you leave the service with a basically guarantee of a 75k+ salary and career and lots of opportunity for 100k+ and it's a long the lines of what she studied.
Everything we know anecdotally from our experiences is a small part of a long macro-economic cycle. We've experienced mini cycles along the way, but over-time, there is a larger shift. Wealth disparity continues to climb, and we're seeing fundamental crises arise due to our/our gov'ts positions on which interests to satisfy - it's not sustainable.
I would be a lot less 'this is different than last time' if anyone was able to tell me how we reach a steady-state again and the crises we're seeing abate. Honestly, all it seems like is patchwork (like immigration; increase our tax-base? great! but IMMEDIATELY strain our infrastructure further... how is that not just one crisis exchanged for another?) and we're actually running out of road for the can to be kicked.
One potential solution I see as a possibility, is for corporations to get lucrative gov't housing to create rental-only units, and manage them, while receiving a subsidy from the gov't to facilitate the immigration numbers we're seeing. Developers will stop offering build-to-own options.. why not just build to rent, collect revenue for ever and get a subsidy for doing it? Solves the housing issue, but facilitates a permanent renter and owner class. Is that the only way forward?
It sounds like you've made your choices about what's worth value in your life... but you DID get to *choose* it.. your decision wasn't forced on you due to inaccessibility.

It was like 100k when I got mine few years back, paid by and done through your employer. You don't apply off the street lol. It's expensive to obtain and maintain which is why companies won't do it or even hire you unless you're worth the investment. This is why you'll see verbiage in the job description like "ability to obtain TS clearance"

I don't think anyone is saying we need to satisfy it. Rather, you can get an understanding of their attitudes and perspective so that we, as employers, can manage it.
Because if you're dealing with minimum wage employees, you're dealing with A LOT of the types of people who populate /r/antiwork
And right now there is absolutely no shortage of minimum wage jobs. So if you think you can just treat people like shit and dispensable, you're probably one of the same people saying things like "NoBOdY WAnTs To WOrK AnYMOre!"

I was in gov't contracting to DOD, Intel world, Whitehouse, and UN. Yes, we often faked it bidding and winning jobs we didn't have the specific knowledge or resources to perform. In 12 years, there was only one job won that we had to go back to the gov't and say we couldn't perform. Our competition had purchased scarce resources to ensure we couldn't perform. We got 9 out of our 10 businesses profitable and sold with a combined ARR of over $250M.
Our CEO, who was queen of faking it, was considered one of the world's foremost experts in our field. Gov'ts and PhDs would pay for her expert advice. She had a 7th grade education - dropped out of school to start a family at 14 YO. She was uneducated but smart, reading everything she could find on her tech speciality and attending every conference possible to meet tech experts and build her networking database. When someone asked her for tech info, she knew who in the free world would know the best answer or the CEO of the company that was building the next Gen solutions.
She couldn't read a P&L or balance sheet but she had me for that. I was CFO or pres in most of those bizes. My formal accounting and finance training was a half year high school bookkeeping class until I got an MBA towards the end of our 12 year run. I couldn't operate our very complex accounting system but I knew enough to hire people smarter than me. I purchased a series of short books that was essentially "finance and mgmt for idiots" and they served me well.

I would work on catching up on retirement/investing. The old benchmark was 1 years salary saved to retirement by age 30 and 3X by age 40. Sounds like you started late so you still have some catching up to do.

> for the 30 year period from 1991-2020 (the last year I tracked), I show that the S&P 500 returned 10.44% YoY before taxes. Not quite the 10.7% mentioned in your article but close. Maybe 1992-2021 was 10.7%.
That's a fair critique. a 30 year time frame is limited. Especially that 30 year time frame because it was right after 1 recession and right before 2022 which the market tanked.
> he average annualized return since its inception in 1928 through Dec. 31, 2021, is 11.82%. The average annualized return since adopting 500 stocks into the index in 1957 through Dec. 31, 2021, is 11.88%.
They have 11.8% for a 93 year period, since its creation. It skips 2022, which is an important year though.
This source goes through 2022 and has 10.04%. That's after a major drop, and we're still in the 10% range.
> You only have to make ~$45k/year to hit the 22% federal tax bracket as an individual.
45k of taxable income. Standard deduction is 14k. That means someone needs to make 59k before they start paying 22% marginal rates. Then there are other deductions (IRA and 401k) that can mean people make 88k. 59k is in the 61-62% income range. Granted, we're using 2023 tax brackets and standard deduction vs 2022 income. If we went for the 88k number, that is only the top 22% of individuals; I wouldn't say this is a reasonable argument but something interesting to consider. If someone is at 80k income and wants to cash in capital gains as an individual, they can can drop 29k into 401k and IRA + standard deduction, dropping their taxable income down to 37k, then cash in investments and pay a 0% LCTG.
So yeah, only individuals in the top 40% are paying 22% marginal taxes. Same with the 15% capital gains. Similarly, only married couples in the top 30% that pay 22% marginal on dividends and 15% on LCTG.
> Yes, it's tied to my personal Google account and I didn't want to go to the trouble of copying it to a new account so I don't doxx myself when 99% of people in an argument aren't actually going to look through it in depth anyway.

I actually do want to check out this sheet. I'm a spread sheet guy. I'm happy to take a look at what others find. I got this response from google:
> Sorry, the file you have requested does not exist.
My take away is, I have more evidence for 10-11%, even 11.8%, than the 7-8% (original claim) or 9% (current claim).
>You're looking at open and close only, ignoring dividends.
Yes I was. I was assuming dividends weren't very high that year. Looks like I was wrong.
I have good news for you too, now that I look at my spreadsheet, for the 30 year period from 1991-2020 (the last year I tracked), I show that the S&P 500 returned 10.44% YoY before taxes. Not quite the 10.7% mentioned in your article but close. Maybe 1992-2021 was 10.7%.
I stand by my calculations that the better long term number to use is ~9% before taxes, not 10-11%. Why? Your article is looking at a single 30 year period. You understand how small a time frame that is for investing right? That's not even one typical person's working career. That's really cherry picking data. My spreadsheet goes back 150 years - when you look over longer time horizons, the average is 9%, not 10-11%.
>You're misrepresenting what I said.
That's rather strong. Sure, you gave examples of retirement accounts or not...in a comment that said many incorrect things, among them how to calculate taxes on distributions from those retirement accounts. Sure, you talked about individuals and not just married couples...across several 1000 word comments you have one sentence about "people who have >55k of income as an individual". All of your examples have assumed no other income in calculating the effective tax rate. The fact is that your comments have hugely focused on people with the 3 qualities I mentioned, with ~50 words for other financial situations. I'm making the 100% correct and valid point that not everybody fits those criteria, not by a long shot.
>You're assuming tax rates that don't apply to most people.
>Your math is only for the top ~40% of individual incomes and top 30% for married people.
I'm sorry? For dividends I was applying a 22% tax rate to dividends. That is definitely quite reasonable as dividends are taxed every year, not just when you sell. This means that they are taxed during the several decades where people are investing, i.e. when they have a job and that income is pushing them into higher tax brackets. You only have to make ~$45k/year to hit the 22% federal tax bracket as an individual. You think that's the top 40% of individual incomes? Not even close. To reach the 15% cap gains tax bracket, again, that $45/year will get you there. Yes, frequently people will be making less or no money in retirement, but once again, that's not everybody.
>Even then, it is only for those who are getting dividends outside of their retirement accounts.
>You're effectively arguing people are going to be tax inefficient
Yes, one reason people might be paying taxes on dividends outside retirement accounts is because they are managing their money badly. Guess what, people do that. But you want to make yet another assumption and say that that doesn't apply to people on this sub. Ok, fine, you want another reason people pay taxes on dividends outside retirement accounts? Because they hit the limits on contributing to their retirement accounts and have to invest in taxable accounts to invest more at all. Do you think maybe that applies to some people on this sub?
>You keep mentioning your own spread sheet without showing it.
Yes, it's tied to my personal Google account and I didn't want to go to the trouble of copying it to a new account so I don't doxx myself when 99% of people in an argument aren't actually going to look through it in depth anyway. But you seem intent on it so here you go.

Depends on your definition of realistic. I've been learning high risk strategy and bot programming through TradeStation's trade simulation.
I highly recommend you read through your broker's simulation documentation. For example, TradeStation's API doc states that price on simulation is determined by the last price on the real market. And orders are filled instantly when last price moved. There's also less latency since simulated order does not go to a real exchange. Etc..
Otherwise I think TS's simulation is quite ok. It makes the market feel more liquid then it is. And that's only felt when I write code. My hands are not fast enough to feel the effects. Tho I never tried their stop loss. Handled that on my side using code.
It's the victims luckiest day. Those police officers will lose their immunity and the state will have to settle for millions of dollars as this case can easily win if the defendant wa ts to go to trial and ask for more than what he initially could have settled for.
There is no case or defense for the state and county as the officers acknowledged their inappropriate actions and broke their own police code of conduct. If there was no hostage, no fire arm or even of there was a fire arm present, firearm (but no sign of use or discharge) as the warrant claims, there was no cause for police to obtain the warrant let alone have reason to shoot the individual.
