    About 1yr ago today (or was it 2?) I lost a BUNCH of $$$ on PLTR. Lulz. Didn't even know the market was open I don't think. BTC also.

    PLTR was such a fail. Bought the dip....which became a crater. Oh well.

    I guess you can say the same about 90% of the crap that peaked in 2021. I will have a story to tell my kids about the "pandemic bubble".
    Like how the 99ers talk about the dot com...

    May have to pull the trigger on a short here. Retest of breakdown. Don't want to get political, but the left is very strong with influence, activism, and cancellation. They are doing a full court press with everything Musk and 38% democrats have previously identified as Tesla buyers. (30% Republicans). Slightly worried the Christmas rally may extent things so 220 might be a better short, but if you think that 2023 will be a recession I can't think of a better short.

    Will they go back to buying BMW's and Audi's? What is the real alternative for these people?

    This. https://www.caranddriver.com/shopping-advice/g32463239/new-ev-models-us/

    Whether or not the options are better from a pure EV standpoint vs a Tesla, people will have options to buy other makes and models.
    After all, there are people who bought the Pontiac Aztec...

    Tesla grabbed the luxury and zoomer market better than anyone else.

    I remember buying the QS spac and riding that way up quite a bit.
    Looking back, crazy to think a company that makes $0 went to $132 a share! lmao.

    Zoomers cant afford a car can they? The Tesla's I've been in feel plastic-y and cheap inside, they also still have chrome on the exterior (ew), not really luxurious, but the tech I imagine is top notch and regularly updated.

    It can't be ignored that Elon is alienating a significant percentage of the people who bought his cars with all his shenanigans -- Tesla was cool and unique now not so much.

    Elon thinks he can run Tesla on autopilot like his cars and slave robot models.

    I thought I was a genius today and played AAPL perfectly. LULZ ON ME! Def refueling on SQQQ right now but it hurts to buy when it's this bloody. Also I grabbed some random GME cuz whenever weird stuff happens, GME might go up 30% (soon) for no reason. Or not. But I'm tryna have some fun here.

    SQ calls sound fun. Why not? Do it. At least straddle that mofo.
