Re: HEDGEFUNDIE's excellent adventure Part II: The next journey

I use IB now but would love to switch to fidelity if I can get comparable income via security lending Yes, they allow LETF trades. But IIRC you are using IBKR margin from time to time to lever your po...

Re: Increasingly Large Spreads with NTSX

Every time I have bought it so far (with market orders) it has bought between the stated spread, for what it's worth. I still don't really understand how the process works, but it seems like the brokerage, when doing price improvement, finds a market maker who will sell very close to the price of th...

Re: SEC Proposing to block leveraged ETF!

Swaps and futures help companies manage risk, keeping the economy more stable. Those of us taking the additional risk are doing a great service to the economy. Hedgefundie may be the greatest hero of our age. All joking aside, anecdotes of negative externalities are not enough, because there are als...

Re: Tesla Stock

In my opinion, it's the cybertruck (the greatest design in history), Elon Musk's personality, and the high amount of debt (leverage!).

Re: Faith driven investing

My faith does affect my investing. As a Discordian, my understanding of what Goddess wants is for me to take actions that will, on average, do the most good. As far as I can tell, investing in companies that do things I consider "bad" helps those companies very little, if at all. It's possible that ...

Re: What is your 2019 YTD Spending

If I may ask, what is your long term goal? I have no long term goal, but I figure more money saved can't hurt should I find one. How much money does one need if they only spend $12,500 per year? If I may also ask, how long have you lived on $12,500 per year? I ask these questions because I am fasci...
