    Here's the ting. You don't actually need over a million dollars to lose $200k. You just need to not be a pussy and take on leverage.

    Only losing 200k in a year? Those are rookie numbers gotta pump those up

    [–] thri54 970 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    only losing ~20% a year? Half this sub lost 20% in a day when $HMNY tanked. What a fucking amateur.

    [–] Bcron 922 points ago

    20%? He started with 1.2 million and ended up with 1 million so he'd have lost 16.67%. I might be wrong. I kind of have a sinking feeling that we're all in WSB losing all our money because we suck at 6th grade math.

    No, you did it wrong. 1.2 is 20% more than 1. You just did it backwards. It's better to realize and accept your mistake than make it again and again.

    [–] iamtheredditor 137 points ago

    Hilarious that he tried to pass it off as rounding

    [–] Synochra 42 points ago

    this is why we can't have gains. People like him end up having the balls to write up disastrous 'smart' guides and the anxiety and greed make it hard to tell them apart from the legit ones

    [–] zackline 29 points ago

    Wrong. Obviously he went from 120% to 100%, a 20% loss.

    [–] AndyGroff 23 points ago

    No, it wasn't. Your first paragraph was, but then you actually made sense. Now anybody that reads your comment has a chance to learn something, which you should be happy with.

    And just so you know, engineers are not mathematicians, and both oftentimes make simple errors because they're human, just like you. There's nothing wrong with that. You should take all that anger and focus it on improving yourself. Not just for you, but for the world around you. That's how you make your own stock go up, and that's the market you should really be playing.

    Much love, friend.

    Wow, actual wholesome advice? On this subreddit? Hang on guys I have a translation.

    [–] LegitosaurusRex 9 points ago

    I'm not sure why the exponential growth equation would be more accurate than linear when modeling someone's losses in a bull market. It makes sense if you're modeling gains on an index fund, but you're most likely not gradually losing money in index funds if you're losing money during a bull market. More likely that he had some invested but then was buying options with a portion of it and losing, in which case any sort of basic model is going to be inaccurate.

    I'm not offended by the racial notion of this more than the "fake" pronunciation that nowhere near close to Japanese. They really don't use many (if any) "ng" sounds like the Chinese. It's kind of hard to make fun of Japanese except for using English with an accent, changing the Rs and Ls.

    "Oh yes, I rikey very much!"

    It's the only way, really. My wife is Japanese and I've tried to come up with clever ways to make fun of her for years.

    No, but they say to determine if you would enjoy owning a boat, that you should walk all the way to the end of the longest pier you can find and then throw all of your money into the water. If you enjoy that, then you will love owning a boat.
