Born anywhere between 1981–1996, Millennials are the generation squeezed between Gen X and Gen Z. If you’re anywhere between 25 and 40 years old this probably concerns you.
According to the most recent data from the Federal Reserve, Millennials currently own around 5.1% of all the wealth in America. Since 2016, Millennials have been the largest generation in the workforce. They currently make up approximately 35% of the entire working population.
Unfortunately, this may actually just be the result of far more worrisome trends in the job market and education system.
The number above is the value of my entire investment portfolio as of the writing of this article.
I do not want to say this to brag or show off how much money I’ve invested. Instead, my goal is to dispel the discomfort and awkwardness about money talk.
How much money should I have saved at my age?
Should I save my money or should I start investing?
These are all questions I’ve asked myself in the past and unfortunately, good answers are hard to come by. Money is a topic that is commonly dismissed as taboo or rude to…
Tomorrow Friday, March 19th will be a Quadruple Witching day.
Sounds spooky huh?
If you’ve never heard of a witching day before you might think it would have something to do with Halloween or maybe it could be a day where all the witches gather around their bubbling cauldrons.
Surprisingly, a Quadruple Witching day is actually an investment term that was coined as the name for the specific day that stock options, index options, stock futures, and index futures all expire simultaneously. …
Imagine how long it might take to earn 11.6 million dollars. Well for 30-year old, electronic music producer 3LAU, it only took roughly 48 hours to make $11,684,101.
Justin Blau, more commonly known as 3LAU, sold a total of 33 NFT’s in an auction that took place over the span of 48 hours and finally ended on February 28th just a couple weeks ago. Blau’s auction completely obliterated records and became a part of history as the largest NFT sale ever (edit: now overtaken by Beeple’s ‘The First 500 Days’ with an unprecedented $69.3 Million price tag on 3/11/2021). The…
The last couple of weeks have been absolutely brutal for the markets.
The Nasdaq is roughly 10% down from its last peak in February. The S&P and Dow are following not too far behind with steep sell-offs after the Federal Reserve Chair, Jerome Powell, spoke about his predictions and seeing temporary inflation in the near future.
This has been seen by many as a market correction as many institutional investors are moving their funds from what they deem “overvalued tech stocks” into recovery and value plays.
We’re in uncertain times and there’s certainly a lot of fear in the markets…
There was a lot of red in the markets today.
The Nasdaq dropped 3.5% and the 10-year Treasury completely smashed through the 1.5% threshold rising higher than any previous point in the last year.
Here’s the thing. There’s been a tremendous sell-off for US government bonds and that’s having a widespread effect on the rest of the markets. Share prices are plummeting and the ever expanding tech stocks are facing the worst of it.
Today, we witnessed the bond market seeing a huge volume of sells. The price of bonds in turn started plummeting. As the value of bond’s decreases…
Although it might be a dreaded time of the year for many, you might want to start filing your tax returns as early as this weekend. As of the time of writing this(2/12/2021), the IRS has just started accepting 2020 tax returns. Normally they are accepting tax returns earlier in the year but due to the ongoing pandemic environment, the opening acceptance date is a little later for the 2020 tax year.
If you’ve opened up the news in the past few days, you’ve probably seen someone talking their head off about how Gamestop stock is on an absolute roller coaster and how incredibly unrealistic its current valuation is at. Hedge funds are hemorrhaging billions of dollars while a sea of redditors on WallStreetBets have made themselves a small fortune. The most famous of which is u/DeepF**kingValue on Reddit who has transformed $50k into $40+MM at the peak.
If you’re new to investing, seeing all of these people make an absolute fortune on the stock market is bound to cause some serious…
GameStop stock(GME) is currently hovering around $220(as of Tuesday, January 26th) and up 495% over just the last week. As a reference, Bitcoin is only up 263% over the past year. What has happened in the last week and why has GameStop become the nightmare of many institutional investors?
Looking back in early 2020 around March or April, GameStop was a struggling brick and mortar retailer. Consumer trends worsening and the new pandemic dealt a huge blow on GameStop leaving them desperate for business. In 2019, GameStop reported a $490 million loss. Due to the pandemic, GameStop was forced to…
“So indexes are where they are because of what has happened historically, so over the last 30 years, you know, we’ve had some very big companies grow up. Evolve and grow into the biggest companies in these indexes. The world we’re going into is much different, we think, than the world that we’ve just left and that’s because and this gets into disruptive innovation and why we formed Ark.”
— Cathy Wood, Founder of ARK Investment Management
The entire backbone of Cathy Wood’s Ark Invest sits upon what she coins, disruptive innovation. Wood predicts that the world we are entering…
