I'm no expert, but I doubt it. Fed (and fed commentators/prognosticators/bullshitters/attention whores) have been paying the maybe yes/maybe no game for how long now? Does anyone still pay attention? The people who write clickbait about the market and/or have a business interest in promoting trading and interest in "news" supposedly relevant to trading get a lot more attention with "something big might be about to happen, get ready!" headlines than "yawn, same shit different day" headlines.


And I'll bet you GF's net worth that if they do move toward a rate hike and the market doesn't freak out, the media "experts" will say "Oh, that's because the Fed's decision to raise interest rates signals their optimism about the strength of the underlying economy and potential for sustained growth." In other words, prospectively use attention-grabbing headlines but don't actually say anything definitive, and retrospectively claim that what just happened is totally consistent with everything you've been saying.

Something's going to make a big move tomorrow, I can feel it. If you can figure out which stock it's going to be, you can make some real money.

Considering it isn't highly expected, yes.

 

A bit like Brexit where most presumed it wouldn't happen.

I don't take bets for such trivial amounts of money.  Ain't nobody got time for that.

Sold my TGT position earlier this week. Some might suggest I timed it well.

For someone who uses IB... I spoiler it to not take a lot of attention.

 

For Interactive Brokers users. (Click to show)

I'm considering changing from TradeStation to IB but I downloaded today their platform and well with the Options Trader I was lost... hahaha. I'm used to the TradeStation Option Station or with the way Thinkorswim presents it. I like how TradeStation or Thinkorswim presents the difference when ITM and OTM... something I couldn't see at a glance in IB... that's why I asked for someone who uses IB... how does your Option Trader or where you buy the contracts appear?

IB is by far my choice.

After about a year under water, my BABA shares are finally positive.

I have an IRA that has the following characteristics:

1) Unrealized gain of 7% YTD
2) Realized loss of $12,000 YTD
3) Previous year realized gain of $3,000

It's a small amount of money that's being managed on my behalf by an advisor. These numbers seem strange to me and I'm trying to figure out whether the advisor is doing a good job. The $12k loss seems weird, it was from a sale of a bunch of different assets.

For an IRA, how should I be thinking of evaluating the advisor's performance?
