Money Talks: Day Trading

What is Day Trading? Is it risky? Can anyone do it?

Hear Ryder and Nancy's opinions.


We also talked about a cashless society / the coin shortage.


Calls concerned:

  • cashless - discriminatory?
  • why wouldn't a store want to take cash
  • not all sales are belief that stock is going down
  • buyer beware
  • Katrina caused a cash only society


According to the new server Reuters: Major U.S. brokerages that reported quarterly results this week cheered the self-directed day trading happening on their platforms as individuals with a bit of extra money and time on their hands during the coronavirus pandemic have been engaging more in markets.      https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-banks-results-wealth/bored-bank-customers-flock-to-day-trading-platforms-during-pandemic-idUSKCN24I1EM
