Don’t put yourself down for not getting on the burning-wobbly-wagon that is the GME stock right now, thats a healthy reaction for something so unsure and highly speculative going on right now. For that is what it is right now; i’ve read well-written posts arguing for a “gamma squeeze” going to press the price to 1000 dollars within 3 days, to just as well-written posts arguing for why the “squeeze” has already happened and topped out at 375 dollars (I believe thats where it hiked?).
Having said all that, i’m late to the party but think i’ll try a little investment come monday. I AM NOT stock-savvy enough to tell you this is a good idea, i’ve only traded in stocks since March last year, in great part because of the pandemic. Lost quite a bit of money starting up, learning about trading, but have done quite well the last 8 months. However, the money I put in stocks is money I won’t be missing, i.e. don’t put money down that you know you may well end up having to need for something soon. Financially I live a really boring life, have no debt and wanted to make some of the money I’ve saved up work for me. So if you take anything away from this, please think responsibly and only invest in ANYTHING if the money you use is something you can miss if the market turns on you. Because by golly, it can really turn. And when something like this turns up, be especially careful. I’m not savvy enough stockwise to tell you its a good idea, only its a really, really great risk to take, especially with money you might need later down the line.
