Beginner project using YFinance - need help!

Hey all,
I'm fairly novice at Python, but have started to (attempt to) write useful programs. So far I've put one together that traverses a folder list and checks for a particular folder and either adds it if it isn't there, or renames it if it is labelled incorrectly.
I have recently almost finished my 2nd project. It's a data extractor that calculates percentage returns of most of the world's major stock market indices over a user-selected time period, using the YFinance library.
I've managed to capture and address all errors except for a ValueError to do with the datetime module. It will only come up if the user enters an incorrect date (e.g. the 31st of February) and causes the program to crash.
You will see in the While loop for the 'end date' field, I've tried adding the ValueError statement here (I've also tried other places in the code as well including under the loop that reads the dictionary of stock indices) but each time a wrong date format is entered, the error appears.
What I need help with is:
I've been reading up on datetime for much of the weekend but still haven't made any progress with it. I'm sure it's a relatively simple fix, but I am requesting help from those who are much more skilled than I.
Also if anyone notices any redundant info in the code, please don't hesitate to inform me!
Thanks in advance for your help!!

Bitcoin/Shitcoin

Could you please comment with an educated guess about Bitcoin's next dip?
I have watched several Nouriel Roubini's videos, where he basically spits on cryptos, blockchain, shitcoins, and Bitcoin.
I have to say he speaks in an authoritarian way with a lot of confidence and what seems like anger but could be associated with allergy to a radically new socio-economical paradigm that Bitcoin and blockchain space could represent.
Although he is widely regarded as an "economy" guru etc... And I respect that; his whole character really bothers me because he is just a puppet that is here to alter the truth... So here is quick destruction of the beginning of his argumentation, I will remain extremely objective and will use external sources to answer his sometimes stupid assertion when any...

  1. NR: "We don't need blockchain, we don't need crypto!" - How bold, how limited! We might not need blockchain, but we need crypto-currencies... So we need blockchain. Bitcoin is too volatile? Then use a stable coin. Below is a pretty simple description of the pro's and cons of stable coins (source: https://www.quora.com/What-are-the-advantages-and-disadvantages-of-Stablecoins-compared-to-traditional-cryptocurrencies ):
Stablecoin has a ton of points of interest.
• The most critical is that these digital currencies enable their proprietors to be moderately tranquil for their benefits, exploiting all the positive parts of cryptoeconomy.
• In certainty, stablecoins can be considered as dollars, gold, oil, etc exchanged crypto exchanges. Normally, against the foundation of different coins that don't have such an incredible base, they are substantially more steady.
For instance, we will take Tether. 1 USDT dependably had an estimation of 1 U.S. dollar. Practically speaking the most extreme expense of USDT was $1,05, and least — $0,92. Be that as it may, there was it at the snapshots of solid variances of the cryptomarket and the negative occasions associated with the working of the cash, for example, breaking and robbery of benefits for the aggregate over $30 million which has occurred in the fall of 2017.
• During the most grounded fall of digital money showcase before the New Year, when numerous monetary standards dropped more than 30-70%, Tether again held out inside 8%. It isn't comprehended what will happen explicitly with USDT because of how designers respond to the occasions, however in itself guaranteeing the money with the dollar desires supported.
• In certainty, an amazing dollar stablecoin will enable us to utilize the USD on cryptoexchanges. Presently numerous trades don't bolster fiat, and those that help, generally speaking, require the client to pass confirmation.
The digital forms of money gave real qualities can be utilized in regular day to day existence, in little and medium business nearly without fears.
Blockchain innovation enables the holder to make sure that his money is truly furnished with an advantage.
Disadvantages of Stablecoin
Be that as it may, stablecoin has various disservices and they don't enable it to make a noteworthy challenge to driving digital forms of money:
• Stablecoin, in contrast to regular cryptographic forms of money, does not bode well to use as a venture resource. In the event that $ 100 stablecoins were purchased for $ 100, at that point in two years they will at present expense $ 100, paying little mind to what will happen to the dollar.
• Stablecoin, binded to a customary resource, ends up being reliant on it and on the customary money related structure, which involves dangers not found in regular cryptographic forms of money.
• Some clients aren't sure that the official to a customary financial framework can give a decentralizovannost, and to the proprietor — obscurity.
• Finally, if the digital currency speaks to a code which is recorded in the memory of the PC, at that point the customary resource frequently requests exceptional capacity conditions, assets for giving these conditions, etc.
As per Bitcoin: It is a speculative asset, not a currency that can be used to simply exchange value. In order for Bitcoin to become a currency, a country should make Bitcoin as its own national currency and should accept having no control over its own currency price fluctuation...
  1. "NR: I would say 99% of crypto-currencies are worth 0" - If you know well, just short them... Skin in the game...
  2. NR: "Why would I want to trust somebody in Russia or somebody in China to validate my transactions?" - Although we can not rationally explain this sentence, let's still suppose that all the Bitcoin transactions are validated by Russian and Chinese, as Nouriel seems to believe, then the reason are simple. a) It is faster b) It is cheaper c) It is safer d) It is 100% reliable d) It is more stable e) It is more transparent f) Ask former Lehman Brother's clients' why they might prefer using Bitcoin or other decentralized crypto currency...
  3. NR: "To me this entire space has been the mother and the father of all financial bubbles" Come on! We are just out of the 2008 financial crisis that wiped:

I mean, I could go on and on and on, but having someone so famous that really lies so much with impunity makes me sick.
And tired actually... So yeah...

How did you get into trading?

I thought it would be interesting - and fitting for the random discussion thread - for willing contributors to share the story about how they got into trading. We all obviously share a passion for making money but I am sure that we each have a different story about how we found this path. I’ll go first!
I have always had a fascination/ obsession with trading. The idea of being able to trade up - starting with something small and snowballing it into something larger, bigger, better has always attractive to me.

My first opening bell

Trading for me started in childhood. I have had the opportunity to have moved around a lot as a child due to my father’s career. We moved to Milan as a family when I was 8. This was my first time living in a non-english speaking country.
When the bell rang at the beginning of recess on my first day at my new school, all of the school children flooded into the playground and huddled around each other in groups. I peered over shoulders to see that everyone was swapping decks of football (soccer) stickers, assessing each other’s inventory and segregating all the cards that they wanted to trade for.
“Ce l’ho, ce l’ho”. These were the first words of my italian vocabulary and the only words that the kids would say as they rifled through each others desks. “I have it, I have it.” Once the rejects had been discarded, negotiations could begin.
The next day, the 10:20 bell marked the beginning of recess; market open! Trading football stickers was the only thing that mattered those days and my best way to start making new friends. Unfortunately I had none but the boy who shared my desk in class was kind enough to give me his worst cards - a couple duplicates of the goalkeeper from Chievo, a team that consistently places at the bottom of the Serie A league. Everyday the market would open at 10:20 sharp for a 20 minute session and would open again at 12:45 - 2pm. At the end of the year I had hundreds of stickers - and I never spent a cent.
At that age, we all lived for this! The football stickers eventually fell out of fashion as interest shifted to pokemon cards, then magic cards and even yugioh. Nevertheless, these playground interactions were my formational experiences in trading.
After school, I also started playing online games like Runescape and socialising on Habbo hotel - a virtual world chat room where people would hang out in rooms they designed and filled with furniture that would be bought with ‘real world’ currency. Without paying for membership - I was able to collect hundreds of HC sofas - the currency by which every other piece of furniture in the game was valued. Trading up.
While at the time I am sure that my parents thought I was wasting my time on the computer I personally feel that these online games, which were each centred on a system of exchange, were an amazing way to learn the fundamental dynamics and features of markets. I am also convinced that business in the real world is nothing more than a more bureaucratic evolution of these playground/ online games.

2008 - let’s get rich

After several years in Milan, we moved again to Paris. New school, new friends. As teenagers there were no trading cards to facilitate the transition. I had been playing Runescape but was not interested in the game anymore and started to look into ways of converting the virtual in-game currency I had amassed into real money to ‘cash out’. I came across forums where people were selling leveled up accounts for good old American Dollars. I came to the fateful realisation that my countless hours of toil in the virtual world did not amount to much in ‘real life’ - I could not catch a bid - so I started to look to other ventures and pursuits that would allow me to earn money.
I have a twin brother and both of us have always had an artistic/ creative bent and excellent drawing skills etc. Now at age 13, we decided to leverage this talent to make some money. This was in 2007, which marked the emergence of the gig economy just before its true expansion post-2008. The beginning of my quest began with a google search: “how to use photoshop to make money”. Clicking through the initial results, I stumbled upon a very low traffic forum where users would initiate logo competitions for their small businesses and submissions would be made with image links in replies. I then found Sitepoint - the precursor to 99designs - and my brother and I started to make logos there under the pseudonym - Pixelsoldier.
We were able to win one of our first competitions within a month - $250 in the bank. We would come home from school, finish homework and then scan through the available competitions and start to sketch out ideas for logos. Within a couple more months we had made $2000. Age 13. The internet can be a marvelous thing. The organisers of the 2008 Singapore Property Awards (who would use the same logo for the next 7 years on highly publicised events) certainly did not know that the ‘design professionals’ they were working were teenagers.
Having won that first $2000 we decided to open a Scottrade account to trade in stocks. Our only guide was “Stock trading for dummies” which I bought but never read. The answers to all of our questions lay with ‘Omnitron2000’ on a yahoo stock chat room. So, following tips from some random dude on the internet, we decided to make our first stock purchase in RDN which returned $250 within 10 minutes. Oh, this is easy! We are going to make it to the cover of Forbes in no time!
The first hit is free. Our next trades were not so inspiring. The next ticker we traded - on a “tip” - was TMA, which soon became THMR and then THMRQ. As per the google description, “Thornburg Mortgage was a United States real estate investment trust that originated, acquired and managed mortgages, with a specific focus on jumbo and super jumbo adjustable rate mortgages.” Was being the operative word. This was 2008. I knew nothing.

The rebirth

I lost interest in trading after our swift blow-up. Nevertheless, my brother and I continued to try to make some money on the side by designing logos throughout high school.
A couple years later, when it came to selecting university courses I decided to study Architecture although at the time I wouldn’t have been able to give you a good reason why other than the typical “it is a good mix between the sciences and the arts”. I had never had difficulty at school and was always at the top of my class; a classic “insecure overachiever” - the kind that corporate employers love to target as they always strive to please. My brother instead choose to study civil engineering.
I completed my undergraduate Architecture degree with a 4.0 GPA and gained entry for my Masters although I decided to defer a year because I was not convinced that it was what I wanted to do.
After working for a couple of years in various Architecture practices both in the US and Europe I was able to confirm my doubts: Architecture was not my passion. If anything, what I enjoyed about Architecture was the creative problem solving but not the actual profession.
During one stint of working at a practice in LA, I had had to find accommodation through Craigslist. My roommate there had been talking to me about bitcoin (late 2016 and before crypto investor was an instagram profession) as well as other investments he had made. He was somewhat of a fashionista and had actually sold his last 2 bitcoins to at around $800 to fund his distorted tastes. In any case, he introduced me to options in an extremely cursory manner - simply saying “I’ve had some success with options”.
My brother had also graduated and while waiting to start a well-paying job in consulting was tutoring by the hour and earning some cash while living at home, which he poured entirely into a trading account to play around with ‘FDs’. I moved to a new architecture practice and continued to have serious doubts about Architecture. Not having found any alternative, I then started my Master program. Around this time, my brother started his job and put his signing bonus into the trading account for me to take over when I was not studying. Around November of 2017 I started to focus most of my attention on trading SPX options and really neglected my architecture work. The workload in architecture is immense, particularly at Postgraduate level. With divided focus and a much stronger interest in trading than in my degree, I quit after the first semester. That was a year ago.
I took a leap of faith and broke away from the path I did not want - without much of a parachute.
Here I am today. To be frank, it has been a year of learning. Negative YTD. But as they say there is a price for education. The account is small but I still have dreams. I am at somewhat of a crossroads. There is a lot of pressure on me to quit but I feel that beyond trading, I have little idea what I want to do.
To that end, I am curious to know how each of you came onto trading and how it factors into your life. When did you open your first brokerage account. Do you work to be able to trade or is trading something that features in addition to your career?

stockAday: Is Visa "priceless"? $V

Key Stats for Visa Inc

It's odd that Visa's not regarded as a Financial Services business but an Industrial company! But maybe that's how it justified 25x earnings versus boring old banks and insurance companies!
Ticker V
Sector Business Support Services
Latest price $82.21
Value $191,295M
Daily vol $670M
Date 09 January 2017

Description

Almost silly of me to give a description eh? Still
It's an oligopoly with Mastercard in Europe and the Americas and has started to penetrate other markets like Japan where there are local leaders, though the Chinese market looks like it is still closed to them. :(

Recent financials

Oddly, it's got a Sept year end, and note that Visa Inc bought Visa Europe in June 2016, so we should see a nice jump in the figures in the coming year, as the European data gets included.
Metric 2016A 2015A 2014A 2013A 2012A
Revenue $15bn $14bn $13bn $12bn $10bn
EPS $2.48 $2.58 $2.16 $1.90 $0.79
For example the forecast for the year to Sept 2017 is $18bn of sales v $15bn last year.

Competition

When it comes to competition, there is cash, cheque, direct bank transfers, and then a range of alternative to Visa. But if we look at the math... no one comes close.
Visa MasterCard Amex JCD Discove Diners
Volume $9,905bn $4,564bn $1,040bn $207bn $154bn
Cards 3,009m 1,574m 118m 94m 58m
It's hard to see where the threat is, as money gets increasingly digitized across the globe. And please don't say "Bitcoin" ;).
So with twice the cards and volume, it's no surprise that Visa is 2x Mastercard on sales. Plus it's scale affords it best margins in the industry. Though only MA and DFS are direct comparisons. Amex, PYPL, etc aren't exact matches, even if they compete tangentially with V.
Companies Latest Sales Operating Profit Return on Equity
Visa Inc $15,082M 68% 21%
American Express Company $33,076M 27% 25%
Discover Financial Services $8,419M 55% 21%
Mastercard Inc $10,537M 56% 64%
Paypal Holdings Inc $10,417M 21% 10%
Alliance Data Systems Corporation $7,059M 28% 30%
Fiserv Inc $5,442M 30% 33%
Global Payments Inc $3,089M 21% 15%

Cash / Debt?

Visa Inc has $12,661M of net debt. That is 1.2x it's latest operating profit. So nothing to get fussed about.

Wall Street thinks?

The professionals on Wall Street have a $94.25 for Visa Inc and their recommendation to clients is Buy. That implies an upside of 15% to their target.

Valuation

Okay, it's the giant, it bought out the EU unit, and got the scale the others haven't. But does $V and $MA for that matter, deserve the valuation of a tech giant? Is its outlook as rosy as Paypal's? It appears the market thinks so.
View Peers Valuation Forecast PE Long-term Growth Dividend Yield FCF Yield
V $191,295M 25x 16% 1% 3%
AXP $69,074M 13x 7% 2% 5%
DFS $28,420M 13x 8% 2% 10%
MA $117,417M 29x 15% 1% 4%
PYPL.O $50,015M 28x 17% 0% 4%
ADS $13,650M 14x 12% 0% 8%
FISV.O $23,839M 25x 13% 0% 4%
GPN $11,443M 21x 23% 0% 5%
If fact the thing I don't get is why $AXP and $DFS are only on 13x earnings. Is there growth so lackluster? Anyone?

Dividends

Visa Inc is forecast to pay a dividend of $0.66 per share, compared a forecast EPS of $3.28. So plenty of room there for the recently authorized $5bn re-purchase program!

Catalysts

In the last 3 months the stock price has moved by -1% that compares with a change in the earnings forecasts of 18%. So the valuation's come in as we rolled forward a fiscal year from 29x to 25x.
On the management team's latest call with Wall Street brokers they gave a rosy outlook
We feel good about fiscal year 2017. The Visa Europe integration is proceeding well and delivering as expected. Payment volume momentum remains robust globally. Transactions growth remains healthy. Cross-border volumes are recovering as the dollar stabilizes and comparisons become easier. Gas prices and exchange rate drags are easing.
So, steady as she goes! Looks like $V is a Quality stock, even if it's not cheap. So a boring but good stock anyone?

The Question of Value

Just my opinion here... But what's really screwing with everyone seems to be Bitcoin's utility as money. A lot of discussion about...
Is this token (choose ticker) worth a dollar (market cap etc)?
...and the honey badger turns that question into...
Is that dollar worth a dollar?
The answer to the latter question won't be answered by market cap. Consider that the "value" of amazon.com (which never really changed from that inaugural day in July 1995) took 20 years to really surface as market cap...
The real answer will come down to the level of adoption ...
...and that's when the fundamentals come into play.
My personal pitch here on where I see the value is "Go BCH" ...but maybe that will take a decade or more.
Perhaps most HODLers don't understand that long term means LONG TERM.
Are your investments in altavista, google, aol, excite, yahoo, Jeeves, bing, etc etc?
Hope your hedges are in place, people!
Meantime, for fast, reliable, safe cash transactions with crypto, BCH does offer the best proposition (and it's what I use exclusively for purchase of goods and services with crypto since BTC intentionally failed to cope last year).

Decide what action you are interested in companies and stock to buy. First let it be shares of any one company. Open Google Finance or Yahoo! Finance, get out there stock the company you are interested, take a look at what exchange they are traded, what their ticker, how much they cost. For example, if you make a search for shares by name «Microsoft», you will find the company’s shares Microsoft Corporation, which is traded on the NASDAQ under the symbol MSFT and cost at the time of this writing, about $ 24 apiece. At the same time look at trends in the course of the last week, month, three months. Decide on how much investment do you expect: Usually in investment /companies have a certain minimum amount to which the investor is invited to enter the market. Some people firms is $ 2,000, others $ 5,000, the third $ 50,000 or more. It is important to understand that this is not a hard limit, but only they recommendation. On the one hand, they are trying to protect themselves from the very very small clients not to waste them in vain at the time. On the other hand, investors also profitable (in terms of profit margin) to invest more money in stocks, to reduce the percentage of losses in overhead expenses and commissions. mekmes, Morocco bitcoin buy. 72297

Beginner's Guide to Exchanges - Part 2

Beginner’s Guide to Exchanges – Part 2

A little late, but as promised here is Part 2 of the Beginner’s Guide to Exchanges. I would like to sincerely thank everyone for their support and feedback in making these.
Link to Part 1
This time I also made a Google Docs survey in the hopes of sharing the results with the community. I thought we could share what we use as a whole and why redditors choose the exchanges they do. For skeptics (as you all should be), I assure you that I am not collecting personal information. This is for recreation and if you are still wary, then by all means abstain!

06 – Fiat Exchanges – South Korea

안녕하세요 여러분! 혹시 우리 한국인 친구 이 보고서를 한국어로 읽고 싶어한다면 알려주세요. 관심이 많이 있다면 간단한 한국어 보고서도 만들 수 있습니다. This year, ETH has taken off like a rocket in the Land of the Morning Calm. With a population of just 50 million, South Koreans account for almost 30% of daily ETH trade volume. Even more surprising is that currently the daily volume of ETH is about 5 times higher than that of Bitcoin on Korean exchanges. Since demand is high, ETH is trading at a premium on Korean exchanges. Some users have been talking about capitalizing off this imbalance by trading on arbitrage between exchanges. For those who have no connection to Korea and hope to do so, I have bad news – all Korean exchanges require a National ID number and access to a Korean bank account. This makes Korean exchanges virtually closed to Korean nationals and those with long-term visas. Sorry everyone.

07 – Fiat Exchanges – China

With a great deal of anticipation, major Chinese exchanges started trading ETH this summer. Since these exchanges deal huge volumes of Bitcoin already, naturally it was expected that they invest heavily into ETH as well. So far this hasn’t quite lived up to the hype with many exchanges still favoring Bitcoin, Litecoin, Altcoins, and even Ethereum Classic (Gulp). Three of these exchanges underwent inspections by the Peoples Bank of China earlier this year and will be working closely with the government to ease fears of money laundering and market manipulation. There are a lot of Chinese sites, and since my Chinese is non-existent this list is basically just for name recognition. In many ways these sites are very similar in regards to security, verification, and fees compared to their western counterparts; just marketed at a different audience and currency. If users are seriously interested in these exchanges and making reviews, please contribute or ask!
