Q2 2018

>> No.20080822

I'd like to expand on this question by asking can you really make it with an amount as small as a few thousand? It seems very hard with traditional stocks unless you spend months or years getting decent at day trading. Bitcoin has more 2x, 4x, 10x opportunities but you have to read 30 whitepapers and follow 30 obscure websites to weird projects and download nodes and all this shit. It's quite complicated.

How could you make it with just a few thousand? Start swinging and just compounding your gains until you've got real money?

>> No.20080875

Start your own business. Work 60-80 hours a week, every week, for the first few years. If you fail, start again. Its the only way to make it, really. Then you'll be able to throw down 10, 30, 50k on an investment without losing your shit if it goes south. Work for yourself and have no master

>> No.20081353

You could make that in the stock market by options trading and leveraged ETFs

>> No.20081834


why not just flush it all down the toilet while you're at it

>> No.20082276

get a job. investing compounds the money you already have. you have none. invest your money regularly into crypto (BTC/ETH/LINK) and the stock market (VOO/IJS/IUSV) and wait 10 years. any opportunity that could multiply your money 5x, 10x in a couple years etc is incredibly risky.

this, in other words, work hard.

35 year old combat veteran with a family. We have about 20k in savings from a very modest income, but I'm hesitant to start fucking around with more than say 4-5k of it (max) because that's our down payment for a house. I'm just wondering if it's even worth it to try and invest with a few k at all besides just to learn with, or if you'll never really see any serious money until you can bring double-digits to invest with.

Thanks for the advice though nigs.

you'll never be wealthy anyways anon. 20k savings at your age, and after being in the military, just means that you do not have the mind to succeed financially. focus on your family bc you wont get wealth

HAHahahahaha, shut the fuck up and eat my fucking ass, faggot. You'll never find a woman that can tolerate your disgusting ass and will die childless and alone after leading a pointless life of shallow self-gratification and resentment. Few will be at your funeral.
I'll be as rich as I fucking want to be because I can achieve whatever I set my mind towards. The point is that money was never a priority to me because it's ultimately just a means to an end, and not the purpose for my existence. I have a much more important role to play in this world and already have compared to narcissistic insect NPC's like you.

This is why you are only worth 20k at 35. You could have easily invested your savings while in the military, they pay for everything, and you'd be a millionaire by now. I'm 22 and I have triple your net worth.

I'll be receiving an inheritance too, eventually, but I'll have made it long before that. Your financially illiterate mindset means you're going to blow your inheritance away anyways. Good luck, focus on your family.

crypto is not like stocks that have real tangible value, it's easy to look at a stock and safely invest in it because you can assume it will have real world value, for example it was a guarantee amazon would eventually get big because ebay used to be fucking huge and amazon in its infancy was basically ebay 2.0
the problem with /biz/ retards is they try to view crypto as something tangible and valuable but it's not
it is a CURRENCY and you can't just invest in a fucking currency and hope you get rich
you have to constantly flip it and basically work it as a full time job so you can inch your way up little by little through small gains

trading crypto is fundementally no different from trading normal real life currency, people who view it as a "hold till I get rich" scheme are retarded, literally nobody has every retired off of other cryptos, the only people who got rich were mass bitcoin holders solely due to a fluke

Money was never a priority in my life, which is why I have a wealth of experiences and an awesome personality along with a loving family. I'd rather live in a fucking box under a bridge and know what I know and be who I am than be a rich, soulless, ignorant cunt like yourself in this fucked up world.

That's nice that your anecdote desk-jockey friend that works in the fucking finance corps in the most cucked army on Earth doesn't do anything. I have 3 combat deployments and 25 jumps, and I busted my fucking ass every day for my entire term of service. The pay is also completely insulting and veterans benefits are bad. GI Bill barely paid for 1/4 of my college and I had to pay for the rest myself. Medical care is hit-or-miss and very bare bones.
So hilarious you retards actually parrot the 'welfare queen' meme when service members are the only ones on the government dole that actually work for their fucking money, and they hardly get any compared to the billions spent on niggers and illegal immigrants and corrupt government workers and politicians. The irony and hypocrisy is GODDAMNED hilarious.

Honestly as far as I'm concerned muricans are playing life on easy mode. I earn $40k a year in my late 20's through my own business and to hear americans talk on here you'd think I was bottom of the barrel scum, when in the UK that's a wage far in excess of what most people will see until their 40's - and it's expensive here too. So maybe $20k doesn't seem like a lot to other American's but it would put you at a better net-worth than most of the finance-living people here.

>> No.20084052


Lol what the fuck do you expect, why should veterans get preferential treatment? You get paid during your 'service', during which you have zero living costs, and any fool moaning about the army way of life is freely admitting they were too stupid to read about it before they VOLUNTARILY signed up for it.

It's like training to be a builder and moaning you've gotta mix cement you battycrease.

We're actually doing really good. No one in either of our families besides my father has any savings. Most people in the US live paycheck-to-paycheck even in the upper-middle class. Yeah you might be making 60-90k a year, and enjoy a cost of living that costs you $3500 a month just on rent or a mortgage.

Yeah you live in a shitty barracks while you're a low rank until you can move off-post, which you then have to pay for yourself. You also have to pay for your own food and transportation costs, and again, the pay is poverty-tier. The only good thing is the medical coverage. Veterans should get benefits because a lot of us put our bodies through hell while serving unlike you fat ass losers, so medical care and education benefits are obviously a great thing for service members. You sacrifice your goddamned body for your country, why shouldn't they use some of the billions of imaginary money to help you take care of it? I guess that money is better spent on Juan and Ahmed jumping the border to sell cocaine, huh?

You're coping because you are poor. Being poor is not a virtue. I'll be retired by your age and free to spend time with my family, travelling with them, and educating my kids. No one mentioned drugs, escorts, or partying but you. You say those things are not fulfilling, yet you also say the reason you're poor is because you decided to party instead of invest your money. Not so smart

Wasted. You have to ignore because I stung your asshole so bad that it's sucking buttermilk.

You can retire after 20 in the military, if you live. My job and unit were very dangerous and also lead to lots of back, knee, shoulder problems and sometimes death. Part of being wealthy requires the ability to move around, but my wife and I chose family over wealth. We didn't want to live in a shit hole and have our AutoZone burned down by joggers, and we didn't want to move away from family that needed us. Career choice is extremely limited where I live, but money was never my priority. It is now, only for the power and opportunities it offers, and I will become as wealthy as I want to be within the next five years. I've actually already started, and it's never too late, which is something you learn when you grow up a bit. There are people I know in their late 50's going to college and starting over completely, and they're empowered and happy. They are the American dream.

No disrespect but can you share what rank you were in the military during your service? I've been around my share of veterans and I always find it interesting how a person's personality is almost directly correlated to the highest rank they were while still in, even long after getting out/retiring.

You aren't a loser unless you focus on wealth. I told you in my first two posts to focus on family. In the realm of wealth, yes, obviously you will be a loser, in the sense that almost all Americans are losers and are forced to work until they are in the fifties or sixties to retire. All it takes is a simple understanding of compounding gains to grasp that. You can invest now for retirement in your 50s, and you can be successful at that. Probably not though because of your financial illiteracy, but don't worry most people are like that

>> No.20084555

I'm sure most of the posters on here are over the age of 25. I would bet the average age range is probably 30-50.

>> No.20084628

That depends on your definitions, which at least you provided. My family and I live well within our means, never struggle, have two paid-off nice vehicles, both college grads, and decent savings. Our little rural town greatly restricts job opportunities if we would want to stay here, and you should know that if you do indeed work. You have to be prepared to relocate as a professional, as all of the doctors, educators, DA's, etc.. move around with some frequency.
Choosing to stay in one place will limit you and that's an unavoidable fact.
