I am sure that you have seen people on TikTok showing how easy the life of a day trader in the stock market is.

Wake up in your mansion, drive with your Lamborghini to a gym, and go swimming in your private pool. All of this while making thousands of dollars.

That’s all baloney, I’m going to show you what a real day in the stock market looks like. Buckle up.

The market opens. I just saw that the Nasdaq crashed 2%. This might not seem much but if the Nasdaq is down 2%, Tesla will be down a lot more.

Just saw that Tesla is officially down 5%. What a wonderful day. And if you think this is only the beginning, it’s not.

It’s the evening, the stock market is about the close. I open up my computer and see a whole bloodbath. My whole computer screen is filled with red percentages.

The Nasdaq is down 4.2% to its lowest level of the year, Tesla is down 10%. What a wonderful life, right?

Let’s talk about the extreme losers.

Palantir, a company providing cyber security to the US government reported tremendous, uh, tremendously bad earnings. Result:

  • -20% today, my life is great

You know that it’s bad when Affirm, a company worth $5B is down 17% today, and in after hours, it’s down another 10%. Great.

Of all the assets, Bitcoin performed the best today. It’s only down 7%.

While I was writing this article in the evening, Upstart Holdings, a company that uses artificial intelligence in order to give you a loan reported its quarterly earnings. This is the result:

Upstart: -40% in 2 minutes
