    Regarding Wider Trading Privileges for UK Retail Investors
    Hello RV'ers, As you all know, or would correctly suppose, UK retail investors are limited in relation to how they can express an investment, (unless they have 1,000,000 GBP or over on account). Can anyone advise if the limitations of retail in relation institutional trading is due to UK GOV (guidance or UK law), or Brokerage (guidance or regulation)?   If a UK retail investor gained a CFA UK Level 4 Certificate in Investment Management (unit 1 & 2 entry-level qualification; https://www.…

    RVDB After Hours on the Exchange: Jack & Weston Walk Through and Discuss Constructing a Real Opti...
    We did none of the things @Jack Farley  promised at the end of today‘s RVDB, and instead we just discussed an options trade that we both have a position in. always- here’s my “this is not investment advice” disclaimer:  DO NOT TRADE THIS. IF YOU TRADE THIS, YOU WILL LOSE 100% OF YOUR MONEY. THIS IS A VERY STUPID BAD IDEA AND IS NOT TO BE REPLICATED REGARDLESS OF YOUR LEVEL OF TRADING EXPERIENCE. THIS IS NOT EVEN “FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY,” THIS IS FOR MON…

    After Hours Special w/ Jack & Weston on Things You May Have Missed: Taiwan Market Meltdown hits N...
    US CPI is far from the only story - see what you may have missed with @Jack Farley get the overly-covered CPI out of the way. Where'd we see the biggest jumps (ex energy)? +10% in airfares, car rentals, lodging, pro sporting event tickets - in other words, the reopen trade. Those who lost revenue clawing back to flat. Shocker. And given the "stellar" forecasting of NFP last week, its probably best we rebalance our attention portfolio away from the lou…

They a…

    March 19 Daily Briefing
    Great Daily Briefing tonight.  Powell really does look like he is playing chicken with the markets.  The elephants in the room here are the following surreal and grim facts (i) Treasury has to issue new debts and refinance old ones to the tune of a gazillion gazillion dollars between now and eternity, and (ii) yields are going higher.  YCC with “American characteristics” seems inevitable.  I think the Fed wants to pin the YYC-controlled curve at  lower rates across the curve and will wait for a…
