Getting Started – Tools & Resources:

Trades in Play:

  • We revisited our position in the fresh IPO, Sonos ($SONO) and how to handle its volatility.
  • We looked at a high-risk/high-reward trade in Liquid Metal ($LQMT).
  • We also reviewed a low-priced alternative play in the cannabis sector called Cannabis Sativa (CBDS).
  • We watched Nvidia ($NVDA) collapse after missing on their earnings report and discussed next steps and then bounce back up toward the end of the week.
