    This.
    I keep trying to tell people, single family homes like the typical suburbs is not sustainable. The more sprawl you create, the more issues you create..everyone will be driving 3 hours to do anything.

    Townhomes/condos are needed.
    Apts or housing with retail below would be great.

    Then they'll build a bunch of crap in the suburbs. lol. That's the approach places like the DFW area appear to be taking anyway. Most of the people I know don't really go into Dallas for anything other than maybe work, but most of them don't even go to Dallas proper for that. In my area Universal Studios is building a new theme park and PGA of America moved its headquarters within 3 miles of me. If you want to eat, there are plenty of eateries around in the suburbs. A lot of the educated and tech talent here lives in the suburbs. Places like Plano have attracted some of the biggest corporations and corporate headquarters, so suburbanites go work at those places. About the only thing that's a problem is when most of the suburbs are full of the wealthy, nobody how's working minimum wage or slightly higher can afford to live anywhere near where they work.

    I'm not a huge fan of sprawl, but people do adjust. One thing I'd rather have is a property I can do stuff on and build on rather than living in a condo/apt where everybody in a city block lives like sardines that never swim anywhere. That being said, many of the suburbs are building apartments, townhomes, etc. just to get people more affordable housing (if you want to call it "affordable"). Homeowners out there may not like it, but oh well.

    I guess if all you care about is your typical HEB/Walmart + Ross/Marshalls combo with some "BEST DONUTS".

    But I digress. back to stocks..

    He made a good decision/timing, very tough economic situation ahead, he will retain/maintains all the credits he has accomplished for future opportunities

    Client of mine.

    High ticket items - lots of financing.

    87% approval on financing the past 2yrs.

    60% last month.

    No straight answers from any of the financing partners - "it must be their credit scores" (but that data is not made available).

    Something is brewing. Or I should say, whatever has been brewing MIGHT be coming to a head. SOON.

    GOOD LUCK.

    I'm still bathing in TMF & SQQQ. Only down like 5000%, up from -5025% 2 days ago. GOOD LUCK

    All these weird macro-cross currents.....

    US Student loan is going to take a bite out of consumer spending pretty soon.... Chinese deflation and a very troubling housing market may weigh heavily on global economy....

    On the other hand..... still strong US labor market with great demographic tailwinds.... and a domestic industrial policy with some major fiscal tailwinds.

    dumb question alert. just consider me a rodeo clown entering the ring.

    favorite investment platform? have some dabbling to do. just want simplicity, low overhead, no advice needed, and not at all going to be making regular / daily / or even weekly moves.

    If you don't plan on "trading", just open an account at Vanguard, buy one of their top ETFs and call it a day.

    Well... not day trading. But I hear you. Thanks. I already have a Vanguard account open and do have my eyes on some ETFs as part of the path.
    Anyway, carry on. Rodeo clown over and out.

    shows you how little people understand.

    headlines: 1.6 billion worth of puts!
    reality: maybe 500,000K?
