Ep 170: Market Sell off, Q+A, Marijuana Stocks, Books to Read + More!

In today’s episode of Let’s Talk Stocks I am going to talk about the sock market sell off that’s currently taking place. We’ll take a look at some interesting books to …


  1. Hi Sasha,

    I recently stumbled upon your videos and love these chats. I've gone through and watched the majority of the recent ones and they give great insight into the many facets of the market. Anyways, I'm reading a book now called "The Hour Between the Dog and Wolf," based on the biology of trading from both a human and market perspective. I think you'd really enjoy this book because you've talked alot about psychology and how so many things can play a role in how we trade. I hope you check it out and let me know what you think. I haven't been able to put it down.

  2. I'm a trader and an artist. I only trade the first and last hour of the day and work as an artist and illustrator for the remainder of the day. Thanks Sasha. you're one of my favorite youtubers.

  3. Sasha it's been just over 3 years since I started watching your videos and I must say you have taught me the most. I got to the point where I trade stocks consistently profitable. So far I just stuck to mastering the "traditional" buy low sell high long positions. I decided this is the year I will begin learning about Options. The specific strategy(s) I want to learn are for for situations where:
    1. A bear move is likely ( a few sideways days are ok, but still mainly bearish)
    2. Time frame is ideally 3-10 trading days( that's my strongest area of analysis)
    3. Percentage move is likely 3-8%.
    4. Stocks in the $5-$250 range that are liquid (daily volume 1 million or more shares)
    5. If possible $1000 or less total max risk(want to start out small during & after paper trading).
    Situations with these factors 1-4 are what work best for my personality & strong area in technical analysis. I just want to learn another way to trade the bear side that isn't shorting or options strategies that involve insane amounts of margin. This is meant to compliment my existing strategy of trading bull reversals of stocks with factors 1-4. If you could give me some insight or point me into the right direction that is what I will learn next after confidently understanding the primary principles of of options like time decay and strike prices.

  4. Hi Sasha! Thanks for another great video! I have a question for you that I'd love your feedback on. In the past 1.5 years or so I have fallen in love with swing trading stocks and ETFs. I am about to finish my PhD in psychology this spring and have been preparing myself to become a professor. However, in my free time I love learning about trading and am considering a potential career change. What I most enjoy is technical analysis, but I'm not sure what careers exist where that could be the bulk of what I do, in addition to making trades. Could you point me in the direction of job titles that involve this kind of work so that I may research them more? I've had a little bit of a hard time figuring this out on my own and don't have many people in my network to ask about this, so any thoughts would be helpful! Also if it could involve some kind of social justice that would be an awesome bonus – like helping to manage money for charitable organizations for example. And, is there any particular type of education or work experience that could help me get my foot in the door for this type of work? Maybe my PhD could be marketable in some way in the finance world, if not in terms of a trading job, but in a psychology of investing or market journalism type of way. Thanks in advance for any insight!

  5. Pretty sure marijuana stocks are illegal because currently marijuana is only legal at state level protected by 10th amendment. If people are funding it with stocks bought and sold between states the people involved will probably all be arrested.
