Should I buy

Hey guys, I've been trading forex and futures for about a year now with some decent success and now looking to invest in bitcoin. I know this question is going to instantly brand me as an under qualified noob, but is now a good time to buy. I'm sure there are a million answers to that extremely vague question but if anyone could shed any light it would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Daytrading choices?

Hi
I have recently been considering learning some daytrading, but I'm having a difficult time focusing my attention on one thing.
I initially looked at penny stocks, I dont have a great deal of money I could risk so it seems to be a good option however I gathered most of it is short selling and from what I could tell you would have to fish for the moment to buy/sell. There doesnt seem to be a learning hub for penny stocks like forex. I couldn't find a straight line...
Then I looked at forex and found babypips which is quite appealing, bite sized learning seems straight forward and allows me to know where to focus but the amount of investment is higher than penny stocks.
Are there any other choices I could look into? What would you recommend to a noob wanting to make some extra income?

Gold and Silver rocket ride - 110k in 1 month

Gold and Silver rocket ride - 110k in 1 month
IMPORTANT: OVER 75% OF PEOPLE LOSE MONEY WITH CFD TRADING. IF YOU'RE A NOOB, DON'T EVEN THINK OF OPENING A CFD ACCOUNT. TRY MAKING CONSISTENT MONEY SWING TRADING ASX STONKS FIRST. THEN KEEP DOING THAT UNTIL YOU GET BORED AND WANT TO LOSE BIG MONEY VERY QUICKLY. ONLY THEN YOU MAY HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO TRADE WITH LEVERAGE.
You most likely don't have my discipline and pain tolerance. Or my feel for risk/reward math. On top of this you need markets to play nice and a bit of luck.
I'm no wiz, but I know my strengths and weaknesses. I smell a good setup and prepare accordingly.
Hope you all nail your big opportunity when it shows up. If not, that's okay too. You'll keep getting chances. Be patient. Focus on small wins. Plus there's far more important things in life than being loaded.

How I lost 5k trading CFDs then turned it around
Back in April, I was playing with CFDs and nearly blew up my account. Started with $5k and dropped to almost zero because trading forex with leverage is a very stupid game. This is why IG gives you a demo account. But instead of using the demo account to learn how not to fuck up massively, I was using it to place giant YOLO shorts on US markets.
By being a bit less retarded on the forex trades I clawed back some losses then topped up the account with another $2.5k before starting to open small positions in gold. From 3 to 10 contracts depending on how confident I felt. Then smelling a massive opportunity, I ramped up the leverage by going with much larger positions.
Day 5
https://preview.redd.it/oqd955abwak51.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=84aa309284c22117630899e39b8b1bfb89c670f3
Entering the silver trade
It was only after making decent profits in gold that I dared venture into silver. I wanted to enter silver around $18 but missed the boat after waiting too long for a dip. $20 was still great. Tons of upside left.
Silver is one nasty motherfucker to trade. It's a much smaller market than gold so the swings can be wild. Silver will play along nicely then suddenly fuck you really hard. If you use too much leverage you're basically waiting for your account to blow up. Stop losses will save you, but they can also kill your best trades. I didn't bother with stops for most of the ride because I'm an ASX_bets retard but also because I had ultra high conviction in the $25-27 price target.
Started with 25 contracts. I very nearly missed out on this mini pump. Some might call it luck.
Day 18
https://preview.redd.it/de8jozlexak51.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=79d174c67a86754c7d9fd78aa594f88282c08834
Adding to my silver positions
Increased my position size once I had a profit buffer to protect against sharp drops. It's WAY easier to blow up a CFD account than it appears. When trades are going well you feel like you can keep adding leverage and make millions. But even small swings will kill you if your positions are too big. Discipline is key.
Buying 50 contracts in silver is not the same as 50 contracts in gold because silver moves are 2-4 times bigger. When gold moves 100 points, expect a 200-400 points move in silver. Having an equal mix of gold an silver contracts helped lower the overall volatility of my account.
Anything over 10 contracts in silver is big. You can lose hundreds within minutes. Buy 50 contracts, the price drops $1 and you're $5000 in the hole. I knew when to push and when to hold back. This was EXTREMELY important. I did not get greedy. I was happy to let price moves do most of the lifting.
Started the day with 3k profits. Went to bed that night with big beautiful bhags. 17k
https://preview.redd.it/qcbeoxvnxak51.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=4228593b9d86cc5f0460f44af06c7292ea644625
Day 19
Woke up the next morning with even bigger bhags. 30k
https://preview.redd.it/9b439y5qxak51.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=19e3ad27d7237bc88fdeb329ebcd113e11349554
Day 24
More pump. I added 50 silver contracts that day after a decent drop. Profits now up to around 41k.
Held through the big swings...
Like a proper bitch, Silver dropped another 5% soon after I added those 50 contracts and my 41k profit became 20k very suddenly. But no stop loss and I held firmly. What's a 21k drop when you've been down 35k on BBOZ before. Metals bounced back hard later that evening. Still not selling. High conviction made all the difference here.
Five days later and I was up to 50k profit.
At that point, I felt safe enough to add another 50 contracts.
https://preview.redd.it/j2at0n95zck51.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=4a0ea2fabe6a245807fb9ee8a8d0bc4ce854ba3a
And it paid off BIG
Both gold and silver keep pumping. Profit now 86k.
Day 28
https://preview.redd.it/f3pz0an8zck51.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=0ca765b6cad423786dee33a1366c70d324e39b8d
Why sell now?
Not selling yet. GV's silver target was $25-27 so I was confident holding through some wild swings.
GV = Gold Ventures https://twitter.com/thelastdegree
A turbo chad from Belgium who made a massive fortune trading options during 2008-2011 when silver went from $9 to $50 before crashing hard. GV is a certified wizard when it comes to timing the gold and silver cycles. Started with his wife's 32k savings and is now worth 18 million EUR or USD, I'm not sure and who cares. GV is pretty low key but commands plenty of respect from other metal traders on Twitter.
Meanwhile GV was on holiday but still shitting money.
https://preview.redd.it/ixsxwjx30dk51.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=9fd5741634a7a5b0f913f5ea12edf05722f9fddf
GV also has a junior miner portfolio worth several millions. I believe it's true. I went deep into his Twitter history. He was buying heavily into the March crash and some of his picks like AbraPlata have since made 10x. Junior miners are like call options on metal prices with no expiry date but you still need to pick winners and enteexit at the right time.
Magical Six Figure Milestone
Not long after... BOOM! Hit 100k in profit.
When starting, I knew there was potentially 40k-50k to be made from this setup even without playing it perfectly. I would have been okay with 20k.
Day 32
https://preview.redd.it/oy8sqsgz1dk51.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=a8c628670578b81d72b9a41bd9d2307a27a2fbf7
Start taking profits
Silver was still going strong but I felt it was time to de-risk.
So I started taking profits on both gold and silver around that time.
https://preview.redd.it/gvdqs67a2dk51.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=64a77d3ccca86fe6e29eb43e0c2eaf096f68867c
Okay I'm out
The way silver kept pumping, I knew a big correction was imminent. By 12pm I was completely out with over 110k profit. Home and dry.
I went on with my daily work routine, a bit more relaxed and not checking charts every 5 minutes.
And then metals dumped hard.
There was money to be made on the short side but there was also a strong possibility of shorts being squeezed. So I didn't bother.
https://preview.redd.it/opoio79i2dk51.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=80187384d37e03eec8d01814248bbe4c5a48cc4f
After the dump, I had no appetite to get back in with big positions. In hindsight I could have made tons more if I held to $29 but the ride from $24 to $29 is far more risky than $20 to $26. I'm quite okay with my 40x performance. Plus I needed to reset mentally after this rocket ride. More often than not, the best thing to do after a huge trading win is to take a break. Wisdom gained from the BBOZ days :)
Withdrew my initial capital and 90% of the profits from IG. Left around 6k on the account to keep playing.

Feels good to have extra funds to invest with but I also need to set some aside for the monster tax bill next year. You're welcome Australia, and all the JobSeekeJobKeeper leeches.
Hey everyone, check out my insane stats!

BTW fuck Facebook groups, you'll hardly learn anything there. Full of losers. Twitter is where the elite traders and big dick fund managers bounce ideas. A solid Twitter list is worth thousands if not millions in the right hands.

Confused about security for VPS

I am a linux noob and trying to setup a VPS on Vultr.
I am kinda OCD about certain things and want to make sure my security is good enough.
I don't know how often Vultr servers get hacked, not even planning on using it for much else either than making some tweets, scraping some data and possibly trading some forex using a bot. Since personal accounts and money is involved I really don't want to get hacked.
There is soooo much information out there and lots of premade scripts. The problem is I don't know what is overkill and what is not.

There is also GRSecurity kernel patch?
Which of these should I be following? What is a bare minimum and what is overkill?
Thanks everyone

Daytrading choices?

Hi
I have recently been considering learning some daytrading, but I'm having a difficult time focusing my attention on one thing.
I initially looked at penny stocks, I dont have a great deal of money I could risk so it seems to be a good option however I gathered most of it is short selling and from what I could tell you would have to fish for the moment to buy/sell. There doesnt seem to be a learning hub for penny stocks like forex. I couldn't find a straight line...
Then I looked at forex and found babypips which is quite appealing, bite sized learning seems straight forward and allows me to know where to focus but the amount of investment is higher than penny stocks.
Are there any other choices I could look into? What would you recommend to a noob wanting to make some extra income?

Record keeping and review ideas?

Hi all, noob here and I just wanted to say that I really enjoy reading all your ideas and insight. I’m just learning about forex after a long period trading shares and options. I just want to know what you all use to record and analyze your trades? I have been looking at Trading Journal online but there are a few things I would like to add to it. I want to be able to record/sort trades with different strategies, markets etc etc then able to easily look at stats on what is more profitable and review performance issues etc. I just use a spreadsheet for my share trading, but I thought that I might see if there is anything that other people use that they find useful - maybe also something I can upload a screen snapshot of my set up into. You never know if you don’t ask right?

2 x Noob Questions

2 x Noob Questions
Hi all,
I'm new here and new to forex.
I have a small amount of experience trading stocks and options but just think it's too volatile at the moment so want to transition to a casino where the deck isn't ENTIRELY stacked against me :P
I've just started babypips and tracking some currency pairs looking for what I think my entries would be.
A couple of noob questions:
1) USD/HKD
So this pair is pegged between 7.75 - 7.85
If this pair is trading at the extreme end of the range isn't this a pretty one-sided trade? Obviously there is the risk that the peg could break or be changed etc but how likely is that?
Is it possible to watch pairs like this trading, wait to see some upward movement + increased volume and enter?
Losses would be limited to the lower bound with solid upside?
This seems like something every noob would think of so what am I missing?

2) Margin of Safety in a Forex Strategy
If I'm testing a strategy what % margin of safety should I try to build in before thinking the strategy might be worthwhile?
Let's say I have 2:1 risk:reward and expect to be right 50% of the time, this is probably not good enough, but what about if I was right 51% of the time? 55%? 60%? etc
I guess the question is, what percentage of statistical edge should I be looking to build?

Pre-market trading...does anyone else like this style?

Hi all -
Please be gentle as I am a noob :-)
I have been a long time Forex trader and long-term stock trader since around 2004. Until very recently I had never really paid attention to stock Day Trading. During Covid shut down I got bored and fell madly in love with pre-market buying and selling a few hrs into the market opening or when the stock declined $0.10 in 1 min. I use tons of alerts with various sounds for price drops of more than $0.02 and I get SMS when it hits $0.09 drop in 1 min. Sometimes I make as low as $0.25 a share and a few times as much as $7 in per share profit. Seems mostly I range between $0.50 - $1.25 in per share profit. I only trade 2-4 stocks per day.
Finviz, Benzinga, BamSEC, Smarttrader, and thinkorswim are my main tools. I have a range of criteria I use to choose stocks. Some of the stuff I look for is trend-line, support and resistance, volume at closing, stock price must be over $1. Then news, SEC filings and a few other important elements that help me select a stock.
I have completed about 48 days of actual trading in this manner. I have lost about 8% of my total profits and that was simply because I was still learning how to manage reversals.
Am I missing something? Why don't more people do this? I totally realize there are so many different ways to Day Trade and especially since I am a total noob....but these last few months have been so wonderful and exciting. I keep forgetting we're in the middle of a pandemic. This method of trading also seems less affected by extremely bearish days.
I am based in Japan and stay awake until around 1am which is about 12 noon EST. And then when I wake up I begin to locate my pre-market trades which usually takes me about 2-3 hrs.

I’ve been at it for 6 months, but I’m having a hard time putting together a strategy.

I am a huge fan of this sub and I know its full of noobs asking questions that they can most likely just Google to find the answer to. I’m also a noob, but dedicating my time to learning has become a full time job to me. I’ve been non stop studying the game for the past 6 months reading books, watching videos, reading forums etc. I can’t stop looking at the charts or just googling something that pops in to my mind, and jotting down random notes and things that come to my mind. It’s an all day thing. I’m borderline obsessed with it, and I am absolutely determined to succeed.
I know there is no secret formula to winning in forex because thats just not the way it works.
I am just having a hard time putting together a blueprint for a strategy. I feel like I am all over the place. I have read books with simple strategies, trying to get an understanding for where to begin curating a strategy, but I feel like I’m bouncing around from one concept to another without any real structure to build off of.
I am aware of mentors but I just have no idea where to find one. If anyone on here thinks they can help, I will pay for the help! I’m just looking for structure, not a “winning strat”! Thanks in advance if anyone helps.
*Also, I don’t trade with any indicators and don’t really believe in them.

If the American & Canadian Stock Markets Crash.... Forex?

Hello, I'm a newbie investor. I've been hearing a lot about how the stock markets are being supported by printed money in both USA and Canada, while they try to keep everyone afloat during these strange times. There are growing whispers that many other newbie investors are entering the markets and are being fed false hope about easy gains as the market recovers, when the real crash is potentially yet to come. Also, the printed money is going to lead to inflation, but there's a lag time before we feel the effects. So I've been wondering, with both a stock market crash, and the effects of inflation just around the corner, is using FOREX a viable strategy to protect my money?
For example, if I converted all my CAD to the South Korean Wan, before the inflation hits, and assuming business proceeds more or less as usual in South Korea, would that be a way to protect my money? I'm a noob so I'm hoping someone can point out any fatal flaws in this idea....
BTW, the only thing I know about south Korea is that their unemployment numbers are LOW, their covid cases are LOW, and their lock down restrictions, relative to Canada/USA are LOW, meaning their economy probably won't be hit as hard as others.
Is converting to a "stable" foreign currency a good way to protect my unstable currency?

What does the RBI do with a huge Forex reserve ? Our foreign reserves are at an all time high of approximately 500 Billion dollars

First of all , let me make it clear I am a complete economic noob with 0 knowledge of it outside of a basic stuff
So , having got that out of the way , what does the Indian government do with a huge foreign reserve ? Does it invest it in stocks ?
Or are all the 500 billion dollars lying in a bank vault in RBI headquarters in Mumbai ?
What are uses of a Forex reserve?
Also, India's economy is around 3.2 trillion dollars in size . Does this economic size count the forex reserve or exclude it ? If tomorrow , the RBI suddenly decided to spend 400 billion dollars out of the 500 billion dollars in Indian economy , does this mean Indian economy suddenly becomes 3.6 billion dollars overnight?
If our Forex reserves are so huge , why is the rupee falling?
