Re: Newbie to stocks

Yeah I’m pretty new to this stuff too. I was wondering why they’re just giving GE away? Do people not know about Q4 earnings after all the computer people have been mining all year? Maybe people know something I don’t

I’m getting strong 2008 vibes from all of this, let me tell you. But what do I know

Re: Newbie to stocks

Like another person said it matters on what you're trading. But when it comes to Robinhood you will generally only get some half decent executions on your trades. Also Robinhood doesn't have premarket and after hours trading still I think (though it may have changed as I think they're working on that), and they don't offer the possibility to short. They really are kind of a discount broker in that sense and if you're trading in a very volatile market I would recommend something like Etrade or one of the other big brokers instead as you're executions will be much better.

And if you want a learning source these guys offer some free info consistently that helped me keep in mind the basics before really starting to trade which I would recommend. Right here they offer a free checklist before every trade.

Good luck and I hope you do well starting out!
