What are the best time of day,week and months to buy stocks? I know some of you might say it's random but there has to be  a statistic history or something

There doesn't have to be crap. Best time of day? Is when you are thinking clearly. I trade when it is best for me and when I see an enter point.

Personally, I prefer within 2 hours of the open, within the first 2.5 days in the week and within the first 10 days of a month.

If your buying/selling by the day I would say the first and last few hours would be the most volatile.  Watch out for company realeases, earnings, etc.  I believe statistically they say October is the best month for scooping up funds.  Then there's adages like "Sell in May and go away"....being the summer duldrums.  Thats all I got off the top my head...

Dont mind me....tsla is just really grinding my gears today....

I edited it and it wasn't because of "sh1t". 

Trying to get people to feel welcome. 

Asking what are the best times to trade is a serious and valid question. 

Because in fact, there are better times to trade than others IMO. 

 

e.g. If I'm a weekly swing trader, why would I open my swing on Thursday?

I'm looking to open it Monday or Tuesday and close by Friday.

 

I believe that the beginning of each cycle, especially for swing trading (tops and bottoms),

are the best times to enter a trade. Time is a very important element in trading.

I agree about the first 2 hours of the open, although I prefer the first hour. Just because it normally slows down in the afternoon until power hour.

 

I don't have any preference to weekly/monthly time frames. Any day of the week is fine to me. Friday's can be slow though, especially going into long weekends.
