Title: Margin call zone?
Post by: helloyou on September 08, 2020, 04:22:41 PM
Today's the third day of serious drop from the Nasdaq dragging all stock with it.

I'd say if the S&P drop below 3000 or Nasdaq drop below 10k, we'll enter a margin call zone. And load of trader will be forced to sell and will precipitate another crash instead of seeing a bounce.

The Q's are like 11% off all-time highs. Highs that were set 3 days ago. Just breathe, everything's going to be ok...

You can always rely on @helloyou to bring the paranoia. Good times.

Market crash? Sounds great, I can buy cheap stocks.

Yes

It keeps dropping

So you'd rather buy stocks when they are more expensive???? Seems backwards to me.
