Does this have a stock ticker? How do you invest in this? Do they have a website? I don't do risky. I like to look. If I watch 100 stocks I might invest in 5 or 10 of them. I like watching sectors and taking a look at investment ideas. I am not a gambler. I don't run into burning buildings without having an exit strategy.
Keep track of the VIX (fear index) Fear had been low all year, but it shot up Friday. Stocks sell off when the fear goes up.
