Is The Only Thing That Separates Gambling From The Stock Market The Fact That Stocks Provide Ownership?

I’m not talking retirement or long term holdings, but more day trading where you close out all positions by days end. Isn’t it essentially a bet that the stock will move up or down? Up you make money, down you lose, (long positions only). How is that different from a gamble? But please spare the fundamental differences between stocks and sports bets, I’m talking of a boiled down version. If you bet a stock will go up and it does, how is that different from a sports bet? Aren’t they both „gambles” that the unkown will work in their favor? If so, is the only difference the fact that stock represents ownership? Now that i think of it, lets talk options too. An option itself isn’t ownership itself but the opportunity to buy ownership. So if an option is closed out and not exercised, isn’t that a bet? Oh and by the way, i’m looking for specific LEGALITY, not if you think so or not. Thanks in advance.

Is Betting Against Stock Markets Move Legal?

Betting over a certain stock’s move between 2 individuals. For example I’ll bet $100 if XYZ goes down or up at the closing time or vs.

Is This The Best Hedge In The Stock Market Casino?

Say you place a wager on ABX (Barrick Gold) at 28.00 for it to go higher
Now, would it be a good play to have an OPTION for a put of around 28.00? This way if the stock goes higher than I will not exercise my option and take the gains if Mr. Schiff is correct. If my stock gets crushed and the DOW falls to 3,000 and the stock goes to 15.00 then I can at least get in that option and take back some of my losses.
Any opinions, is this like Insurance at a blackjack table? I am not to sure yet on how to beat the options game at the stock market casino (Yes the market is a casino)
One of my favorite plays I think in this Casino game is to put a „PUT” play on companies like GM, C, BAC, GE, PM and have the put for at least six months from now and wait for them to get destroyed. But its a gamble, sort of like poker, baccarat, blackjack and sports betting.
Thank you for those whom can help with the hedge question on having a „PUT” on a stock you own long.
Peace everyone :)

I Would Like Opinions On The Stock Market?

please answer without resorting to name calling and finger pointing just straight answers from your own thoughts..
first – the stock market SEEMS more and more like a betting parlor for business, subject to the same kind of manipulation that has happened in sports betting (fixed games and the like) not really a question but the way I see it with no real education as to how it works.
second – Does it seems as if the Stock Market is inherently unstabble and subject to collapse given the right circumstances. Also is there a „stop button” in case a run away sell off happened

Good Stock Ideas?

I’ve just recently gotten back into the very addictive stock game. There are a couple that I really like, and wanted to get some other opinions.
IFLI – International Fight League
This is trading at about $.12 so I found it easy to get a big position with the hopes that the Latin HBO, and Mark Cubans HDNet help boost it’s profitability.
CFC- Countrywide – Well, i’m a gambling man and i’m hoping that BOA will show a solid get-out-of-debt plan. Shouldn’t be too hard since CFC was one of the biggest spenders on internet advertising. That’s a pretty big instant save.
OPWV – Openwave – I’m kicking myself for this one. I just emailed a buddy about this on Monday to get his opinion because I really liked it. It was at $1.78. I didn’t have any cash in my account to buy so I have to wait a couple more days. He bought, and since Monday, it’s gone up about 30%. It’s at about $2.30 (I didn’t see the close today).
SIRI- Sirius Radio – This one i’m up in the air. I haven’t bought,

Why Does The Sec Allow Regular People Like Me And You To Invest In Stock Scams.?
