I just want to be able to offer encouragement and DD and "if X does Y I’ll do Z" for example:
My Dad is amazing, he has worked his ass off for 40 years to take care of his family not just my mom and us kids but also has been paying all of his mom’s bills and rent for the last 20 years on only 40-80k/year. Not only was he hit hard in 2008, he worked for a lighting company for 17 years and then they moved to a different state and went out of business, so he had to restart at a new company. Last summer due to covid after working at the new company he was laid off less than 4 years away from retirement. He knew I was actively trading and asked about GME in January when it was peaking, I explained the situation without giving financial advice and was kinda surprised to hear the next day that he had bought shares at $316 on the second peak, he literally never saw green but he and I have been diamond handing the whole way. We’re coming back for him!
I owe him so much for everything he has done for me financially in my life and I have literally no idea how he has managed to afford what he has done. He helped me out when my ex emptied my bank account and stole my car and I haven’t been able to pay him back anything since. And the worst part is he doesn’t want or expect anything from me.
So here’s the accountability, after the Squeeze is squoze I’ll be writing my dad a check for either $20k or 10% of my total whichever is bigger. Make a note of this, proof or ban me later
GME 50@$127.262 AMC 500@$8.462 + 09APR21 $22c @ 0.44
