Where do you get your market info from?

I primarily use various data points from the API that powers Wall Street Ranks, a platform I built which aggregates public financial data and predictions from different sources (check out my LinkedIn profile/posts for more details). I then dive deep into analyst reports on Seeking Alpha, and scan the past year of news about the stock to form a full picture.

What’s a piece of advice you’d give a newbie?

Spend some time paper trading and get used to a routine of doing research. Try to develop a method where the results correlate to your expectations. Then whenever you buy something and the market dips, you don’t panic sell. If the fundamentals of why you bought something haven’t changed, then stick it out.

If you were to buy a US stock or ETF right now, what would you buy? Why?

I would probably buy Mercado Libre stock right now.
