Info on getting started investing 


(This list is for Investing a year+, not trading for quick income. 


In an elementary explanation:

Investing is buying a piece of a company(or  cryptocurrency, commodity, currency,etc) and holding it while its value increases. It takes longer for a return on investment but is simpler, taxed less, and builds wealth you can literally borrow against similar to owning real estate…..


Trading is "flipping"<buying and selling> stocks, options, crypto, etc. Its all about entry points and EXIT points)


I'll write up tips on trading soon but trading is massively more risky. Trading can be done with almost any stock whether upward or downward movement <options trading> once you learn the ebs and flows of a company's movements.)

Links to get FREE stocks


I use TD Ameritrade and MooMoo for most trading. I use TD as my official long term, margin account, investment brokerage. Td executes trades more reliably and quicker. I use MooMoo as cash account for trading round trips. Moomoo has the best data, chart features and social community in the app.

 I use Cash App as a change jar for long term investments from the list below since it allows incremental purchases (meaning you can throw $5 on disney or amazon instead of buying $100 to $2300 shares. You still want to buy when overall price is down. When they are down, put another $5 in). 

 I mostly just use the others for the free stocks and to get extra day trades when needed. You dont need to worry about day trades(aka round trips) 

Use the same money to open each account if you have the time. Sign up, fund account, collect free stocks, withdraw your cash back to your bank, move on to the next brokerage/app/website, sign up, fund account, collect free stock, etc, etc. With most apps, the more you deposit, the better the free stock, but hey free stock is free stock. Throw $5 in and get you a free share of Nokia or Funko or something lol 🤷🏾‍♂️

Strategies employed: 

  • Don't just jump in and buy anything listed. 
  • Don't just jump in and buy anything listed. 
  • Don't just jump in and buy anything listed. 
  • FIRST add these stocks to a watchlist in any stock app OR "follow" them in the cash app
  • SECOND get an idea of a company's value by looking at its past price in the months before c19 and look at the lowest price during c19. See if they were on a decline for years before c19( as a general rule. These below, are stocks that are and will be fine more than likely)
  • THIRD - WAIT, watch, and try to enter a position(buy your shares) around the lowest price and continue to buy any time the stock is goes down around what you feel their lowest price is or when they are having a bad week to "average down" the overall price per share

    (Average down means the more you buy, at a cheaper price, it brings your overall price-per-share down IE if you buy one Disney stock for $100 and buy another on a day they dropped to $50, it means you spent $75 per share 100+50=$150 spent….150/2= 75 each). Keep cash in your accounts to always buy more on bad days/weeks with an effort to buy at their lowest point. 

  • For me, Disney's buy point is anything 100ish or less. Amazon's is around 1900 and less. Set up a Google or MooMoo alert and keep an eye and ear out for another crash or dips to a price you think is bottom-ish. I recommend getting the cnbc app and listening to it all day for a week...Google any financial terms you hear and don't understand. It'll help you understand how to speculate a company's actual valuation for yourself. 


  • BUY A LITTLE AT A TIME AS YOU SEE A STOCK FALLING CAUSE THEY COULD FALL FARTHER. YOU WANT TO TRY TO CATCH THEIR BOTTOM AND BUY MORE AS LOW AS POSSIBLE. Same Disney example above about averaging down... if they dropped from $100 to $50, you don't want to be the person who spent all their money when it hit $75 for a few minutes… wanna be the person who bought a bunch when it hit $50 (the bottom) for a few minutes. (Trading in a nutshell is doing this part full time. “Buy low and sell high”….thats why its crucial you learn how a company moves first and you can find daily/weekly/monthly entrance and exit points)
  • Learn Options trading and buy put options(downward bets) on days when they are having bad days and make money while they are losing value (i’ll provide a separate write up on that with links and videos)

    DISCLAIMER: Futures, stocks and options trading involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for every investor. The valuation of futures, stocks and options may fluctuate, and, as a result, clients may lose more than their original investment. The impact of seasonal and geopolitical events is already factored into market prices. The highly leveraged nature of futures trading means that small market movements will have a great impact on your trading account and this can work against you, leading to large losses or can work for you, leading to large gains.
    If the market moves against you, you may sustain a total loss greater than the amount you deposited into your account. You are responsible for all the risks and financial resources you use and for the chosen trading system. You should not engage in trading unless you fully understand the nature of the transactions you are entering into and the extent of your exposure to loss. If you do not fully understand these risks you must seek independent advice from your financial advisor.
    All trading strategies are used at your own risk.

Trade only with risk capital; that is, trade with money that, if lost, will not adversely impact your lifestyle and your ability to meet your financial obligations. Past results are no indication of future performance. In no event should the content of this correspondence be construed as an express or implied promise or guarantee.
 and it's staff are not responsible for any losses incurred as a result of using any of our trading strategies. Loss-limiting strategies such as stop loss orders may not be effective because market conditions or technological issues may make it impossible to execute such orders. Likewise, strategies using combinations of options and/or futures positions such as “spread” or “straddle” trades may be just as risky as simple long and short positions.
