The Upcoming Stock Market Collapse | Round 2

When it comes to investing in 2020…here’s everything you need to know, WHY the stock market seemed to sell off out of nowhere, how this is SPECULATED to be the doings of a company called SoftBank, and then we’ll talk about Tesla. Enjoy! Add me on Instagram: GPStephan

My ENTIRE Camera and Recording Equipment:

First, we need to talk about SoftBank – because this could, in theory, explain SOME of the recent run up in the stock market – and then, the subsequent, quick decline.

For anyone who’s not aware, Softbank is an investment conglomerate and holding company worth somewhere around $113 BILLION DOLLARS…and lately, they seem to be the center of a lot of controversy. An article just published by CNN explains how SoftBank could be the NASDAQ “whale” that has the power to manipulate the entire market – and here’s how that works.

SoftBank invested $4 BILLION DOLLARS into certain tech companies through what’s known as a call option – this means SoftBank pays a “Small Fee” for the RIGHT to buy a certain stock, at a certain price, by a certain date. When SoftBank invests $4 BILLION DOLLARS into the market place buying up specific stocks all at once…they have the power to POTENTIALLY MOVE THE ENTIRE MARKET alongside with it, because SOMEONE ELSE needs to buy those 100 stocks to make the transaction. That now gives the theory that – possibly – traders like this have the power to influence and move the market, either up like we’ve seen recently – or down, when they begin to sell.

As far as what you can do about it – HONESTLY, I don’t see this as a big deal. Drops like this are NORMAL, they’re not causes to panic, and as long as you have a plan to hold your investment LONG TERM – just see these little dips as “flash sales,” buy more – and hold on long term. In the big picture, it doesn’t matter.

BUT, if you’re investing in risky stocks with no knowledge of what you’re investing in, and you’re only buying in because you don’t want to miss out on the hype money train…then yeah, you’re better off selling, and holding out until you have a better grasp of your investments, and this should NOT be a market to gamble money you can’t afford to lose. ONLY invest in stable funds or stocks you REALLY know the fundamentals of, long term – and that’s it, for 99% of you watching. Buy and hold, as they say…

Finally…lets talk BRIEFLY about Tesla NOT getting into the SP500, and now it’s subsequent 35% DROP in a matter of a few days.

Now, here’s the thing – in order to be eligible for SP500 inclusion, a company must hit a few key criteria points, one of which being that they’ve had 4 quarters of profitability – which, TECHNICALLY, Tesla just hit. HOWEVER…just because a stock meets all the criteria of getting into the SP500, doesn’t mean it’s automatically going to be added in.

There is a committee of 9 members that meet every month to decide on who gets added – and who gets removed – from the index, and how they vote which stocks get added or removed isn’t known and isn’t published ahead of time. It’s speculated that Tesla is just too volatile to be added to the index quite yet, and for a stock to swing + or – 35% in a few days, at a hundred billion dollar valuation, isn’t quite something best suited for positioning within an index.

In terms of where we stand today – I’m not too shocked that the markets have fallen so much over these last few days. The stock market has risen nearly every single day for almost 2 weeks straight…there’s no “REAL REASON” for that, and as illogical as the stock market is – just like we can’t question why it’s going up, we can’t reason why it’s going down – it just does what it wants, and it’s up to us to enjoy the ride, have fun watching it – but, at the end of the day, the ONLY thing we can do is consistently buy and hold – that’s it.

    Translation: put the burden of the collapsing American economy on the Japanese. Printing infinite mounts of money makes the dollar weaker and the yen stronger. Japan can no longer export goods at cheap price and American stock market goes up.

    What about the Fed tries to balance its balance sheet and short the market to eliminate the QE money without anyone knowing it? It can be done very effectively if they want to do it. Basically, they print money, give it to a bank to short the whole market. Other peoples will hold their buys and the bottom FED will have all the stocks through the bank and nothing in its balance… And they screw the dollar to change it to a digital token.. its a win win for the fed.
    Eventually, the inequality between people has to come to an end, otherwise there will be a few people who own everything even those who have nothing.

    Hi Graham, i got a question about investing in real estate.

    What are the loans banks give you to invest in real estate? I called the banker in the country where i currently live (Netherlands) and they say for “investment property” we need the real state investor (me, you, everybody else) to invest 40% from your own money, then the bank does 60%, this probably is without the closings and all stuff.

    However, if i buy a house where i want to live in my self, depending on my financial sheet, the bank is willing to do almost full funding of the house. Which is pretty strange, but anyways..

    What are your visions on this one? Really got my mind boggling…
    Thanks in regards.

    Very great content, thanks for always taking time to make interesting educating videos. A lot has happened since the Beginning of the Pandemic and we are yet to see the end of it. The most important thing is the Gift of Life, so many lives were lost during the crisis, Also so many investors who took advantage of “STAYing AT HOME” invested in bitcoin at cheap prices and made great profits , the price went from 9k usd to 12k last week and hopefully it will keep inflating before the year Runs out. Make your money in this market now because as soon as the Bankster’s get involved our days are numbered. They will be using Crypto technology against humanity, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Bitcoin to the moon.. Here you can tell him I referred you <<<>> has been doing fantastic and amazingly well in helping me get my trades right, I went from 0. 7Btc to 3.4 Btc in 5days , Thanks to Ben His strategy is unique and efficient. We all know investing in Bitcoin is the future don’t be left behind

    I don’t like this categorization I keep seeing that the markets are out of control and don’t reflect reality. It was mostly the internet-tech sector that had risen super quickly as people were looking for basically any part of the country that was properly functioning, to invest in. Not sure anyone is looking at energy, travel, retail, banking, or many other sectors and saying they’re crushing it.

    Also, nice job walking us through the pressing the like button process. I actually did it when you started the countdown.

    And just today, I covered 2,000 of the shares in my NKLA short position at $31. That was free money, one of my favorite kinds. Also covered about 1/4 of my remaining AAL short position today. More free money. 💲💰 I will eventually cover the rest of these two shorts at even lower prices.

    Buy and hold is not always right, unless you havd very much chunks of money cuz you’re gonna stuck and have less money invest to buy at the bottom or market crash.

      Just always buy the market and don’t stop investing just because there’s a dip. If you have the $80,000 liquid to invest then do it, but do it over several index funds, as opposed to a few companies. These things take a lot of time.
