  1. NOTABLE! Lending Club Investing: Good Passive Income Source? (Answer: NO)

    Interesting this was the same time 2011-2015 I had about 50k there. I ended up with about 7%... meh. I was expecting closer to 10% and Lending club definitely seemed to loosen up credit standards as they started going after institutional investors. I wouldn't mess with it again. Too much risk on...
  2. RANT Random Chat, Thoughts, Posts, and/or Rants Thread

    I lived in NYC for a couple years and got to be good friends with a lot of international people that moved there; we had a common hobby. I got to be such good friends with them I even went on a 2 week vacation with everyone. I was one of 2 Americans. They were from Italy, Germany, Finland...
  3. NOTABLE! What book are you reading? Right now. Post up!

    Reading AntiFragile now, but honestly probably boring to most people. MJ you would probably love how he crushes academics as "fragilistas" and clueless compared to practitioners. Makes the historical case that doing is greater than theorizing. Taleb can also do that because he has credentials to...
  4. "Flipping" an ecommerce business

    Thanks for podcast episode. I'm going to check this out. This is what I'm planning on doing and have been mapping out everyone doing this currently. Buying businesses is probably looked down on in this forum since I'm not building something from scratch but I would eventually like to have a...

  6. EXECUTION Road To $1B Hedge Fund

    Ok first MBA's are worthless especially if they are "traders". They need to stick to investment banking. Also the returns aren't that crazy for trading, but the problem is all trades have a theta decay. How long that is no one knows but typically it's 6-18months. That is why the people who...
  7. NOTABLE! What is the BEST "value" you ever paid for?

    Didn't see this one but maybe was somewhere. Apple Airpods! They recharge completely in 15mins and last over 5hours. Podcast and books anytime. If you don't care about looking stupid. Best thing I've bought in 5+yrs. I have also washed them in the washing machine by mistake and still work...

  9. Daytrading Crypto: My Journey

    I'm not saying seasoned traders can't beat the market. I'm saying retail traders can't beat the market. Look even seasoned traders can't beat the FX market. Lots more low hanging fruit in Crypto. And not to sound mean but honestly, Elliot Wave, Fibonacci, etc is all hocus pocus to sell people a...

  12. Daytrading Crypto: My Journey

    Retail is not going to make money trading crytpo the spreads are ridiculous. Institutional and prop traders love this guy. It's like saying hey I'm going to go try to play in the MLB today wish me luck. I'm amazed people keep fooling themselves they can beat the market. The only reason they...
  13. Thought Experiment: WWYD in Your Post Powerball Euphoria?

    I would find a market that has high barriers to entry and then buy all the players in it and have a monopoly in a niche that isn't sexy and no one cares about but I would dominate it. Try to stay under the radar. I would try to generate another billion in 5 years from these companies and find...
