magento2.2 – Products appear ‘In Stock’ only after re-saving

Certain products are listed as ‘Out of Stock’ on the front-end till I manually open the product and hit save.

Sometimes it’s configurable products, but most often it’s one or two simple products. I only find out about this when a customer complains that the size they want is not available. Any suggestions on how I can proactively detect these issues and fix them?

This issue seems to be the same but unsure which version it’s referring to: Products only appear when saved in Magento

[ Politics ] Open Question : Are white liberals the laughing stock of America right now?

Overreacting to every thing, always basing decisions on their feelings, apologizing for being white, etc.   Even blacks are laughing at you.  The creator of the BET channel was talking about how you are toppling statues and banning TV shows and said you actually think blacks are thinking “oh look! They really care about us.”

Will a 77-82mm stepup + filter fit with stock hood on Sony 70-200mm 2F.8 GM?

I am about to buy a Sony A7RIII + 16-35mm F2.8 GM + 70-200mm F2.8 GM and want to use the same X4 CPL filter. I plan on buying the 82mm X4 CPL (which will fit the 16-35mm) and using a stepup to allow me to use on the 70-200mm. My only question is: will this fit on the 70-200mm with the stock lens hood?

locked out – Need help LOCKING a Moto G6 XT1925-13 after restoring stock OS

I had semi-bricked / soft-bricked my Motorola Moto G6 smartphone as explained here:

And I was stuck trying to install the stock ROM again. Finally, I was able to install the stock ROM onto the device, but I am unable to LOCK it again. The problem I’m facing because of that is that I will not able to upgrade the OS at all.

Default Stock Status & Quantity | Default Swatch Images

Roadblocks for newbies are endless in Magento 2 and we are not exceptions. At this moment, we are stuck in the following problems. Any suggestions are welcome.

  • After importing each product using Webkul Aliexpress Importer, we are
    setting stock status and quantity manually since by default there is
    "out of stock" in stock status and "0" in quantity. The developer
    didn’t help much. Is there any way to set them by default "In Stock"
    and with some quantity?

    • While importing products with swatch images, they appear in dropdown box on our website. Any suggestions how to set swatch by

Is it possible to commission a custom lens that would significantly outperform stock lenses?

Lens design is always a compromise and typically you can’t improve something without degrading another aspect of the performance, but since you specifically said:

achieve a full stop of additional light transmission while holding
equal to or better to a comparable lens in sharpness, distortion,
vignetting and chromatic aberration

then Yes, you can!

And you don’t even have to spend time designing a new lens (which can always fail if the goal is too ambitious)

Instead, build a scaled up version of the original lens. By the laws of geometry, it will retain the same optical properties, except that everything will be just bigger – which means we also need a bigger sensor to cover the enlarged image circle.

The focal length increases but it is compensated by a bigger sensor, giving the same 35mm equivalent focal length (and the same field of view).

The f/ratio remains the same, but the amount of light increases with proportion to the geometrically larger aperture, so each of your scaled up pixels of your scaled up sensor receives more light so it behaves as if the ISO was multiplied by 2 (for +1EV).

Yes, the answer is a bit stretched, as it also calls for a new camera, but it seemed you might be interested in theoretical considerations, not just in ordering a custom built lens 😉

Forex vs Stock Trading- Which One Is Better – General Forex Questions & Help

In the 21st century, online trading is getting more and more popular day by day. As a result traders often compare Forex vs. stocks to figure out which market is better for trading. Although being linked, Forex and stock market have a vast difference.

The Forex market has unique characteristics that distinguish it from other markets, and in the eyes of many people, also makes it far more attractive to trade.

So, I’ll be comparing these two markets on several points but the final decision is yours. Therefore, without any further ado, let’s begin.

Trading Volume

One of the biggest differences between Forex and stock market is the size of the Forex market.

Forex is estimated to trade around $ 5 trillion a day, with most trading concentrated in a number of major pairs such as EUR / USD, USD / JPY, GBP / USD and AUD / USD.

Forex market volumes reduce the volume of dollars from all combined world stock markets, which average around $ 200 billion a day.

Though it has a high trading volume that’s why it is full of advantages for a trader. High volume means traders can usually run their orders more easily and closer to the price they want.

While all markets are vulnerable to disparity, having more liquidity at each price-setting point better-equipping traders to enter and exit the market.


Markets that trade in high volumes generally have high liquidity. Liquidity causes tighter spreads and lower transaction costs.

The main pairs of Forex usually have very low spreads and transaction costs when compared to stocks and this is one of the main advantages of Forex market trading compared to stock market trading.

24 Hour Market

Forex is a free market, which means it is not transacted through traditional exchanges. Trading is facilitated through the interbank market.

This means that trade can take place throughout the world during the working hours and trading sessions of different countries.

Therefore, Forex traders have access to trade almost 24 hours a day, 5 days a week.

The main stock indexes, on the other hand, are traded at different times and are influenced by different variables. Visit the Main Index page to find out more about trading this market — including information about trading hours.

Minimum or no commission

Most Forex brokers don’t charge commission fees, instead, they make their margins on the spread — which is the difference between the purchase price and the selling price.

When trading equity (stocks) or futures contracts, or major indices such as the S&P 500, traders often have to pay spreads together with the commission to the broker.

Forex spreads are quite transparent compared to other contract trading costs. Below you will see the spread of EUR / USD highlighted in the exchange rate of an executable transaction.

Spreads can be used to calculate costs for the size of your position in advance before being executed.

Narrow focus vs wide focus

There are eight major currencies that can be the focus of traders, while in the world of shares there are thousands.

With only eight economies in focus and because Forex is traded in pairs, traders will look for divergent and converging trends between currencies to match Forex pairs to trade. Eight currencies are easier to monitor than thousands of shares.

Exchange v / s OTC

The stock market is traded on a stock exchange. One of the best-known examples is trading shares on the stock exchange such as the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

Trading on the exchange comes with certain benefits. For one, traders and investors get access to order books that keep records of purchases and sales.

This can be very useful for traders or investors who follow technical or fundamental analysis. Trading on the exchange is considered far safer.

Looking into the Forex market, trading is carried out freely. Unlike the stock market, there is no centralized exchange for the Forex market. Transactions are carried out privately between the buyer and seller.

Such transactions carry the risk of defaulting on an opposing party.

Cost of entry

Stock trading usually requires a capital that is far greater than what you need to trade Forex. Therefore, for most investors or average speculators, Forex seems to be an easier way to enter the financial markets.

Although it may seem easy, Forex trading utilizes leverage, which is needed so that small speculators enlarge their control units when trading Forex. This is beneficial and not profitable for speculators.

While profits can be large, losses can be as large until they have the potential to remove invested capital.

Also Forex market guarantees the best trading technologies. Which can help you make decisions also can generate signals but everyone prefers human touch signals because Forex market moves a lot and experienced traders calculate a lot of things and then generates accurate Forex trading signals.


In stock trading, you can usually trade with a maximum leverage of 2: 1. There are also several qualification requirements before you can do this. Not every investor is approved for a margin account, which is what you need to improve in the stock market.

Online Forex trading is very different. To be eligible for trading with leverage, you can simply open a Forex trading account.

There are no qualification requirements. In the United States, you are limited to 50: 1 leverage, but in other countries, you can increase as much as 200: 1.

Your choice

Most investors are more familiar with the stock market than with Forex, and that familiarity might be entertaining.

The comparative freedom of regulation regarding Forex and the high degree of leverage makes it easy to control large trades without special qualifications and with a limited amount of money.

That’s the positive side of the Forex market, but also the negative side. Participation in Forex increases investment opportunities and risks.

Stock Market is crashing and Coronavirus is rising…. what grade would you give Trump?

The stock market is not “crashing.” Losses during the month-long downturn mid-Feb thru mid-Mar fail to meet the definition for either percentage losses or duration of downturn. Furthermore, since the low around 23 March, market has recovered about half (a bit more) of that month’s losses. Markets move in cycles to begin with, and it makes little difference to natural cycles who is President (or whoever is whatever!). 

Markets are also driven in the short-term by emotions, especially panics in unusual circumstances such as a pandemic. Those short-term moves tend to correct themselves fairly quickly, as seen so far in 2020. Serious damage & disruptions of natural cycles are caused by the Fed and by CONGRESS – e.g. massive tax increases are devastating to markets and they can slide for years, or sudden & substantial changes in loose-tight money supply or regulatory changes which harm businesses & employment with new & heavy burdens, or a sudden flood of labor into job markets (e.g. Boomers moving into job market in 1970s, massive increases in immigration, etc.). Alleviate prior burdens which strangle the economy, and the economy grows, employment increases, and the stock market rises. 

Trump did not bring in coronavirus, and from Trump’s first attempts to initiate travel bans to control/limit the spread, Congress sandblasted him. Congress, especially the House, has done more harm. And now, individual behaviors are more determinant of the spread, and scientists & healthcare workers learning more about transmission, treatments, prevention matter most in what happens with covid-19 from now on.
