    Anyone here invest in stock market, share some strategies and what stocks you invest in, etc.

    I am going to buy the TTWO stock because GTA 5 is coming out and I know it will be a booming success for sure.

    I've played the stock market a bit and one thing is for sure, their is no sure booming success in the market. Seriously, be cautious. Just remember that everyone thought Facebook was a home run, then the IPO absolutely tanked.

    Haha yeah. You gotta be doing the things that everyone else isn't. Foreshadowing and analysis is what most don't do. Most people just use it as a gamble and invest in the companies that they like and watch their money disapear. It's a strategic game but just like hedge funds.. it's high risk, high reward.

    One guy I know invested alot of shares in Netflix a while back when it was new on the market and can sell them all today at a whopping 80k.

    I heard facebook's ipo dropped even more once they released that 10 percent of the 900 million fb users were fake accounts.

    I recommend investing in mutual funds. There is less risk with them since it is a collection of stocks, so if one tanks, it won't kill you.

    I regularly trade in the stock market. Mostly option spreads though, not direct equities.
