  4. Can some one tell me for real if it is safe to star investing or no.(after this)

  5. The quality of a man's life is in direct proportion to his commitment to excellence, regardless of his chosen field of endeavor. You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. Do not wait; the time will never be ‘just right.’ Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.
    Your work is relevant but depending on your salary all time isn't a good thing. Wealthy people invest first and spend what’s left and broke people spend first and invest what’s left. Investment is an asset or item that is purchased with the hope that it will generate income or appreciate in the future. When you invest, you are buying a day that you don’t have to work. Sean Logan has been the man that many people are looking for and his strategy has been of great benefit to me. He will help and guarantee you to earn $7500 on a regular easily with a minimal amount and be financially independent. I really appreciate it and can't help but let others know about it.
    He can be reached at email (.,Ultimatetraders30@gmail)

  6. Altco!ns pushed higher as Bitcoin price consolidated in preparation for what could be a move toward $50,000. Following the launch of CME Ether futures contracts, Ether (ETH) price surged to a new high at $1,825. Data from CoinMetrics suggests that the CME launch could lead to accelerated inflows into the Grayscale Ethereum Trust (ETHE). Meanwhile, Liteco!n futures have also seen a surge in activity with a record $584 million in open interest, indicating that the altco!n is attracting the attention of institutional investors. Elrond (EGLD) also set a new price and trading volume record as it increased 700% since the start of 2021 driven by the release of the Maiar wallet and plans to integrate with decentralized finance protocols. Now's not the time to wait and see what happens next, but time to take the bull by the horn and trade your coins so as to accumulate and increase your holdings. This upcoming bull run is one like no other so I am going to exploit it by trading and having more than a handful when the price soars higher. I trade with Burwell Coleman trade s!gnals and I have increased my holdings from 2btc to 8btc in just two months. I can attest to the accuracy of his trade signals and also his sound chart analysis, his good at what he does and can be reached using gm@il (burwellcolemanfinance@gmailcom) and Tele_gram (burwellcoleman) for more information into her services.

  7. New Rule 15c3-5 is designed to ensure that brokerdealers appropriately control the risks associated with market access, so as not to jeopardize their
    own financial condition, that of other market participants, the integrity of trading on the
    securities markets, and the stability of the financial system.

  8. they hedge this with broker. Master stroke by hedgefund but this is unfair to change rules , show some guts cowards

  9. Lets not forget about tastyworks they also block the stocks… this is the email I got from them.

    Apex Clearing, who acts as the custodian of all tastyworks accounts, has informed us that the following symbols (AMC, GME, & KOSS) will be set to closing only order status immediately. You will only be able to submit orders to close out any open positions that you have in these symbols.

    New opening orders will not be accepted at this time. We will update our clients should the clearing firm lift the Closing Only status in the near future.

    Best, The tastyworks Team
