Yeah, don't do this.(bass swoop transition)(high pitched cymbal shimmer)Good old YouTube, good old YouTube comments section,and in this case,one of those things where last week,same kinda concept, I'm assuming most of youare like, "yeah, that's not how it works,"in this case, that's not what you should be doing,"that's really stupid,"but people still do it.Common sense, obvious things,apparently aren't as always common sense or obviousas they should be.So maybe you'll look at this situationand be like, "what, Clay?"What's the problem here?"In that situation, good.This will be an educational video for ya,but for others of you,this is also one of those things whereyou gotta be careful of when people kind ofcome at you like, "oh, you know,"that's just gambling."Oh, you trade?"You're a trade--"oh, hmm, well that's--"And you know, have you ever had that before?Where you tell people that you're interestedin the markets and trading,and then they kinda, their eyebrows go up,and maybe they don't say it,but you can tell they're thinking, "oh, wow,"that's, that's--"so you're pretty much a glorified gambler."Oh."You know?And they give you that vibe.Well, these are the sort of people that we're gonna lookthat give this stereotype.People like this drive me nuts,because I guarantee you,I guarantee people like this,when they go talk to friends and families,they're not not using the word, "yeah, I'm a gambler,"yeah, I'm gambling on the stock market."No, they're telling them,"yeah, you know, I'm trading the markets now,"yeah, you know, I'm investing in the markets."They're using those types of description words;trader, investor, I'm making an investment,you know, I'm doing a trade,and they're making it sound all like,okay, all right, to friends and family.And then when things go kapoof,like, there's a possibility here,well, what do those people think?"Oh, well, you know, Jim Bob,"remember, yeah, he was 'trading' the markets,"and you know, now he comes back,"and I haven't heard from him,"or, you know, a bad connotation forms.So that's why you gotta be very leerywhen people are trying to come down on youand try to imply that you're being very silly,you're being very stupid.Now, maybe you are, if you're acting like a gambler,but if you do know in your heart of heartsthat you're approaching all thiswith a trade plan, and you're focused on risk,and you know that you're doing things the right way,don't let people persuade you,because the people are comin' at youbecause they've probably had interactionslike this person that we're gonna look at.So let's get to this comment,it's very short, it's very sweet,and yeah.You'll quickly get the pointof where I'm going with all this.So this person says,"don't stop making videos on CGC."CGC is 98% of my portfolio, LOL."And then way over to the far rightI put the actual chart and the date,just so you can seekind of how things unfold for this person.So that analysis was from 9/13 of '18 on CGC.CGC is one of these Canadian marijuana pot stock companiesthat have boomed,some people think they're gonna continue to boom.Point being, it's very speculative.It's very, you know, at the forefront,very kind of, "okay, where exactly are things gonna head?"Now, to be fair to this person,you know what, maybe CGC continues to boom,and then it goes boom some more,and then it just goes really boom,and this person's portfoliojust explodes in the upwards direction.But does that mean that they did anything right?Now, you could argue,"well, they did right, they went all in"on something that worked out."That's true, but is that necessarily a good habit?No, that would be a terrible habit.'Cause what is that telling this person?"Well, that's how you do it."I'm good, 'cause I picked this,"and I went all-in,"and then their next 'idea' comes along,and they go all in.And you know what, maybe that one works,and maybe the next one after that works,but eventually, these bad habits catch up,and one of these is not gonna work out,and kapoof, there goes all their profits,there go the vast majority of their profits.But what I'm tryin' to get across here,and hopefully you kinda getis one of the foundational aspects of trading and investingis risk management, and one of the baseline formsof risk management is diversification,and when you're 98% of your portfolio in one stock,and I don't even care if that one stockis not speculative,so let's replace this with,what's a really good company, right?Amazon, Apple, Microsoft.Yeah, those companies are great,they're solid, you know,Amazon's taking over the world, it seems,but still, to go 98% in on one single company,that's still very, very unwise,because, you know, you've heard the saying before,don't put all your eggs in one basket.This person's eggs are all in one basket,and that's not what you wanna see.And again, in the event CGC does not work outand this person's portfolio goes kapoof,then all these peoplethat have had interactions with this person,they're gonna have the sour taste left in their mouthof, "yep, somebody else,"or maybe it's their first interactionwith somebody 'trading' the marketor 'investing' the markets,and they're gonna have this impression, now,that, "see, it's gambling,"it's basically just gambling."Well, yeah, when you go 98% of your portfoliointo one single stock, that is gambling.But that's not how it's supposed to be.There are many other ways to treat it right.So again, two points in summarizing things.First point, don't put all your eggs in one basket.Second point, if somebody is kind of giving youthe stink eye in terms of, "oh, you're a trader,"just understand that odds are,they've probably come across somebody like this clownthat thinks it's good to put 98% of your portfoliointo one stock, and that's why they're kinda jadedtowards the whole stock market thing,so don't let it discourage you,don't let it drag you down.Don't cause it to doubt yourselfif you're going about things in the right fashion.But yeah, all eggs in one basket, no.If you are out there trading alone currently,and maybe are in the marketlooking for a community to jointo assist you in your trading,or to just help you, you know,give you another set of eyeballs,then I do have a private trading communitywhere you can trade alongside meand other experienced traders.So what you see popping up on the screen right nowis both an information link,so if you click on the inner circle one,that is going to take you to the pagewhere I explain all the detailsof what exactly come with the community,both the chatroom and the newsletter,and then the other image that has popped upis a behind-the-scenes tourwhere you can see exactly what is going tobe contained within the community.I take you through, like I said,a behind-the-scenes tour of everything,and that way you'll know preciselywhat you are getting when you join.So definitely check that stuff outif you are interested, and thinking aboutwanting to join a community,and let me know if you have any questions.
