I Lost $150,000 Trading Facebook Earnings!? (Almost)

86 ratings | 2024 views
This was a close one! If I didn't learn how to trade stocks the right way, I would have been in a lot more trouble. I still can't wait to update you guys on my epic losses from shorting facebook stock, however as you can see from this video, this was an attempt to minimize the loss. Hopefully you guys can pull some key take aways on how to trade from this and especially the risks of selling option premium. This is also a good lesson on earnings and especially this 2019 earnings season as we have seen a lot of crazy moves. It is even that much riskier to try to pull off this trading strategy so be careful. #Money #Finance #Investing Get your Tastyworks Account here: https://start.tastyworks.com/#/login?referralCode=GZEBKSA4BX FREE STOCK TRADING COURSE & CHATROOM ( But honestly the youtube live chat is better than this chat, fair warning) https://www.ttfrealestate.com/p/free-stock-trading-bootcamp Practically free real estate course.

I was taught to always show appreciation to whom its due to, Mrs Sylvia deserves all the praise I have to offer While trading with her system I have been able to  rack up to $ 17, 400 in profit within a month, I don't think I would have gotten so much trading on my own, apparently investing through her wasn't a bad idea after all. Contact her if you wish to experience success in trading Sylviaallenfo(@)gmail com.

+Debra Munz she finds her way through all of it, between trading proper, attending to new and existing clients and living her daily life, she's just awesome i'm so glad i work with her.

+time traveler whoa, i've been investing with just $ 1000 per investment, i guess that's why i haven't gotten as much profit as you. I think i'll ensue a $ 5000 next week, thanks for the insight.

I probably shouldn't be giving you specifics here, but i can tell you it's a little over 4k.
Keith Frye (3 months ago)
Mrs Sylvia o works for me too, just out of curiosity, how much do you put in per investment, cos she's been trading for me for 7 months now and i haven't gotten close to the amount you mentioned.

Now I understand why some brokers won't allow you to trade options if you don't have any experience.Obviously, Josh you know what you doing, but I think it's not the best advice for beginners with smaller accounts sell premium with unlimited risk.

Greatly appreciate you sharing this. It's like watching Jordan Speith own a duff. And hopefully like Speith, what gets put on the scorecard is a bogey, and not a double or triple. BTW: For stretches of time today, your monitor was out of focus, at least it was for me. Thanks again! Cya in the morn.

Dude, I wouldn’t call them losses unless they’re exercised. You have time value. Of course they could be exercised. Tomorrow they could come down by a ton. Boeing might come down but who knows

Oh and the IV should crush so that should help.... maybe

Success is moving from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm. You gon bounce back baby and make a few milli this is ain’t nothing!

When I see the average paid price is $163 on Robinhood, I know the stock would fly. Robinhood is such a great measurement of community. Because 90% of people lose money in trading, so the winner needs to be the opposite side!! I bought it at $147. On the other hand, Amazon is going to drop to $1550-1580 after ER. It would reach 1,720 before ER!

How is it 150K loss? Looks like it's just a few thousand dollars loss since you do have other long call to cover the shorts 😉

Super Perceptive (3 months ago)

I really appreciate the realness, Josh. Thank you for sharing this. I hope you can finesse your way out. Let's see what happens tomorrow... China trade delegate leaving, maybe some profit taking or big plays and, of course, AMZN after market close. Thanks for all that you do. Seriously. I know many agree with me. Thank you.

+Oskar Oskarowski so how do u actually know it's a scam? Did he take your money and leave u high and dry? I'm just trying to get some context here as to why he upsets u so much u have to follow him and talk shit to random strangers that have no value to your life what so ever. I just don't like people talking shit because it's easy to point fingers and its apparently cool to hate these days. Both links I found that you directed me to are absolutely worthless and sound like they were written by an angry ex-girlfriend with PMS issues.
Nuikolas Huff (3 months ago)
Nvm I guess u posted 1 month ago lol but before that 9 months. Just sayin
Nuikolas Huff (3 months ago)
+Oskar Oskarowski I think it may be the same thing I saw posted to his reddit page a couple days ago then. Do u know him? Who are you? Lol again, just curious honestly cuz everyone hates on everything on YT so i never know what to believe and i looked at your page and it seems there hasn't been a post in 9 months so I'm just being straight up here. Thanks for the communication back though. More than most would say.
