    Robin hood is a scam. Just look how they acted with the GameStop situation. By turning off their services to protect high end investors who were shorting that stock. Hope it goes bankrupt

  • What’s the value of a ‘most common’ stocks index? This could be the Wisdom of the Crowd, or the Destructive Power of an Ignorant Majority, or a group of Reddit Colluders. Or anything between and beyond. I’m not sure if it’s relevance…

    My greatest happiness is the $ 64,000 bi-weekly profits I get consistently from my $15,000 investment despite the economic fluctuation

  • 卢军宏台长心灵法门 on September 13, 2022

    There is no place for even the minutest

    amount of dirt in our hearts.

    Alexandre Dumas once said that it is

    difficult to understand others, but the most

    difficult thing is to understand yourself.

    Never allow yourself to fall into any trap.

    Never allow the least karmic obstacle

    to take form, nor harbour any unwholesome

    thoughts in your mind.
