Is 0 DTE Lotto Win Big or Lose All? Zero-day-to-expiration (0 DTE) options are often viewed as speculative and high-risk, leading some to equate them with gambling. However, it's important to distinguish between speculative trading and gambling, as there are key differences. Trading 0 DTE options can involve extensive analysis and research. Traders may use technical analysis, chart patterns, and market data to make informed decisions. This level of analysis goes beyond simple luck and chance, which is a defining feature of gambling. Serious traders use risk management strategies to limit potential losses. They may set stop-loss orders, employ position sizing, and consider their overall portfolio diversification. These risk mitigation techniques are not typically associated with gambling.

As September unfolds, many investors are wary of its historical reputation as one of the worst months for the stock market. While some advocate a cautious "do nothing" approach during this month, it's essential to consider both historical data and the current economic landscape when making investment decisions. Is it really the best to do nothing knowing it is potentially the worst month? Historical Data Let’s first look at why September is called the worst month. Historical Monthly Returns Historically, it's generally observed that bull markets tend to last longer than bear markets, so the average monthly percentage change in stock markets is typically positive. However, there are exceptions to this positive trend, with February, May, and September standing out as months historically ass

Bearish Outlook for Block as CEO of Square Departs

The much-anticipated IPO of chip design firm Arm has arrived. Illustration shows Arm Ltd logo The excitement around $Arm Holdings(ARM)$'s upcoming initial public offering (IPO) is undeniable, but I find myself taking a more cautious stance. While the company's potential is undeniable, history has shown that many major IPOs struggle to outperform the S&P 500 in the long run. The reason for my hesitation in discussing this until now, despite the growing excitement, is that I believe entering this stock immediately following its IPO might be premature. The top 10 U.S. IPOs from the past four years have averaged a 47% drop from their first-day closing prices, per LSEG data, with investors buying at intra-day peaks seeing a 53% loss on average. It's

Buying or not to buy the dip? The markets tried to rebound on Friday. They started strongly and made an attempt to claw back previous day losses. However the rally fizzled out towards the end which indicates that the short rally was more of a fourth wave within a third wave. The fifth wave of the bigger third wave will probably see the 4300-4275 levels on the broad market being reached. I like to use the broad market as a gauge and then compare it to the stocks I am confident in to look for divergences etc. And with regards to big tech, I believe Microsoft and Google will do well long term. However, I believe their values will compress further in the near future and technically, I find more downside risks than upside risks. As such I am comfortable with my small position in Microsoft
