#LimitOrder So if you are a #NewInvestor all of the bells and whistles can be overwhelming and you don't even know what questions to ask. That is why I created the #InvestopediaCliffNotes which you can click the tag on here in app to see them aggregated or just got to my YouTube for Financial Lingo. A limit order is a nice way to ensure you only pay no more than the limit order price, but it does nSee more
#CorporateBonds #InvestopediaCliffNotes Back to the scheduled bond programming. Today we talk about Corporate Bonds and again I have never purchased this one. Would you rather invest in a corporate bond where the principal value remains "guaranteed" - depending on rating - or invest in the company's stock? For me personally, I feel like I would rather risk a dividend stock over returns from a corporSee more
#MunicipalBonds #InvestopediaCliffNotes I have never bought a municipal bond before, but felt that it was probably best that people on this app also learn about things other than just stocks and crypto. So this week I've decided to make videos on a few different types of bonds. I think these were definitely more popular way back when for the super wealthy to make money on investments while avoidingSee more
#Ibonds #InvestopediaCliffNotes What if I told you there was an investment that had a guaranteed return of 7.12% up until May 2022 and then the new rate was tied to how bad inflation was. Well ... I'm happy to tell you that this currently exists and they are called Series I Bonds. With the uncertainty of 2022 ... this is looking like a viable hedge for me. What are your thoughts on this? Video: httSee more
#ARR #InvestopediaCliffNotes Just wanted to add a correction to yesterday's post. SaaS stands for Software-as-a-Service not Subscription-as-a-Service. Had done it correctly everywhere but the original thumbnail 😩 ... sorry for any confusion. Today's builds on SaaS w/ ARR or Annual Recurring Revenue and was a term I ran into when looking into cyber security and $ADSK . Video: more

#TAM #InvestopediaCliffNotes TAM or Total Addressable Market dovetails off of Thursday's post on #MarketShare nicely. Total addressable market is an important concept to understand what potential revenue a new company may be able to capture, say if you were looking to invest in an #IPO . Alternatively, it is also useful for a developed company when identifying potentially a new market that a company coSee more
#CapEx #InvestopediaCliffNotes CapEx or Capital Expenditures are the investments a company makes to grow the business such as in infrastructure or new equipment. This is different from operating expenses which are recurring and predictable costs for day to day operations such as rent, wages, and utility costs. This week is going to aim more towards fundamental analysis. Video: more
#NetWorkingCapital #InvestopediaCliffNotes What are some ways that you might evaluate a company's financial statement to see if they are a healthy company? Some people have their go to ratios like EPS or PEG. This one might not be a ratio but seems like a pretty smart way of at least comparing assets (what they own) and liabilities (what they owe). If you learn to take the time to look under the hooSee more
#RelativeStrengthIndex #InvestopediaCliffNotes So this is a continuation of the technical analysis playlist and is on a momentum indicator called the Relative Strength Index (RSI). It is one that I had never previously heard of or used before doing this video. Since then I have used Bollinger Bands and the RSI as my two technical indicators for entering into positions. There are many more but theseSee more
#CupAndHandle #InvestopediaCliffNotes So for this week and potentially the rest of 2021 I plan to stop copying over all the text from the whiteboard videos into a separate text based post on Public. Instead, I will leave the link to the video below and maybe write up a quick blurb to accompany it. I already work about 40 hours a week w/ my day job and I've spent the better part of >30 hours/ week foSee more
#WashSaleRule #InvestopediaCliffNotes If you are wanting to utilize Tax Loss Harvesting to make the most of an investment that went south ... you best be very familiar with the Wash Sale Rule if you want to count your losses against capital gains or income. The Breakdown: - Rule created by Internal Revenue Services (IRS) to keep people from artificially realizing losses for tax deduction purposes bSee more
#BollingerBands #InvestopediaCliffNotes I actually first read about Bollinger Bands® when I was learning about Covered Calls for Beginners when I was on the beach. I still have yet exercise any such covered calls but it did get me curious enough to learn more and make this video. Hope it at least helps somebody on here! I feel like these videos are becoming a touch obscure. The Breakdown: - "ThereSee more
#TechnicalIndicator #InvestopediaCliffNotes If enough people believe in it does it make it true? I've always been skeptical of technical analysis but honestly if enough people believe in it then it should have value in predicting the human, emotional aspect of the stock market in a more predictable and reliable way. The Breakdown: - "Technical indicators are heuristic or mathematical calculationsSee more

You should consult your legal, tax, or financial advisors before making any financial decisions. This material is not intended as a recommendation, offer, or solicitation to purchase or sell securities, open a brokerage account, or engage in any investment strategy.

Product offerings and availability vary based on jurisdiction.

Stocks, ETFs, Options, Bonds.
Self-directed brokerage accounts and brokerage services for US-listed, registered securities, options, and Bonds, except for treasury securities offered through Jiko Securities, Inc., are offered to self-directed customers by Open to the Public Investing, Inc. (“Public Investing”), a registered broker-dealer and member of FINRA & SIPC. Additional information about your broker can be found by clicking here.

Additional information can be found here.

Certain requirements must be met in order to trade options. Options can be risky and are not suitable for all investors. Options transactions are often complex, and investors can rapidly lose the entire amount of their investment or more in a short period of time. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing in options. Refer to the Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before considering any options transaction. Supporting documentation for any claims, if applicable, will be furnished upon request. Tax considerations with options transactions are unique and investors considering options should consult their tax advisor as to how taxes affect the outcome of each options strategy.

Options Order Flow Rebate.
If you are enrolled in our Options Order Flow Rebate Program, Public Investing will share 50% of our estimated order flow revenue for each completed options trade as a rebate to help reduce your trading costs. The exact rebate will depend on the specifics of each transaction and will be previewed for you prior to submitting each trade. This rebate will be deducted from your cost to place the trade and will be reflected on your trade confirmation. Order flow rebates are not available for non-options transactions. To learn more, see our Fee Schedule, Order Flow Rebate FAQ, and Order Flow Rebate Program Terms & Conditions.

“Bonds” shall refer to corporate debt securities and U.S. government securities offered on the Public platform through a self-directed brokerage account held at Public Investing and custodied at Apex Clearing. For purposes of this section, Bonds exclude treasury securities held in treasury accounts with Jiko Securities, Inc. as explained under the “ Treasury Accounts” section.

Investments in Bonds are subject to various risks including risks related to interest rates, credit quality, market valuations, liquidity, prepayments, early redemption, corporate events, tax ramifications and other factors. The value of Bonds fluctuate and any investments sold prior to maturity may result in gain or loss of principal. In general, when interest rates go up, Bond prices typically drop, and vice versa. Bonds with higher yields or offered by issuers with lower credit ratings generally carry a higher degree of risk. All fixed income securities are subject to price change and availability, and yield is subject to change. Bond ratings, if provided, are third party opinions on the overall bond's credit worthiness at the time the rating is assigned. Ratings are not recommendations to purchase, hold, or sell securities, and they do not address the market value of securities or their suitability for investment purposes.

High-Yield Cash Account.
A High-Yield Cash Account is a secondary brokerage account with Public Investing. Funds in your High-Yield Cash Account are automatically deposited into partner banks (“Partner Banks”), where that cash earns interest and is eligible for FDIC insurance. See here for a list of current Partner Banks. Your Annual Percentage Yield is variable and may change at the discretion of the Partner Banks or Public Investing. Apex Clearing and Public Investing receive administrative fees for operating this program, which reduce the amount of interest paid on swept cash. Neither Public Investing nor any of its affiliates is a bank. Learn more.

Alternative Assets.
Brokerage services for alternative assets available on Public are offered by Dalmore Group, LLC (“Dalmore”), member of FINRA & SIPC. “Alternative assets,” as the term is used at Public, are equity securities that have been issued pursuant to Regulation A of the Securities Act of 1933 (as amended) (“Regulation A”). This content is not investment advice. These investments are speculative, involve substantial risks (including illiquidity and loss of principal), and are not FDIC or SIPC insured. Alternative Assets purchased on the Public platform are not held in a Public Investing brokerage account and are self-custodied by the purchaser. The issuers of these securities may be an affiliate of Public Investing, and Public Investing (or an affiliate) may earn fees when you purchase or sell Alternative Assets. For more information on risks and conflicts of interest, see these disclosures. An affiliate of Public may be “testing the waters” and considering making an offering of securities under Tier 2 of Regulation A. No money or other consideration is being solicited and, if sent in response, will not be accepted. No offer to buy securities can be accepted, and no part of the purchase price can be received, until an offering statement filed with the SEC has been qualified by the SEC. Any such offer may be withdrawn or revoked, without obligation or commitment of any kind, at any time before notice of acceptance given after the date of qualification by the SEC or as stated in the offering materials relating to an investment opportunity, as applicable. An indication of interest to purchase securities involves no obligation or commitment of any kind.

Cryptocurrency trading, execution, and custody services are provided by Bakkt Crypto Solutions, LLC (NMLS ID 1828849) (“Bakkt”). Cryptocurrency is highly speculative, involves a high degree of risk, and has the potential for loss of the entire amount of an investment. Cryptocurrencies offered by Bakkt are not securities and are not FDIC insured or protected by SIPC. Your cryptocurrency assets are held in your Bakkt account. Bakkt is a licensed virtual currency business by the New York State Department of Financial Services and a licensed money transmitter, but is not a registered broker-dealer or a FINRA member. Your Bakkt Crypto account is separate from your brokerage account with Public Investing, which holds US-listed stocks and ETFs. Please review the Risk Disclosures before trading.

Treasury Accounts.
Investing services in treasury accounts offering 6 month US Treasury Bills on the Public platform are through Jiko Securities, Inc. (“JSI”), a registered broker-dealer and member of FINRA & SIPC. See JSI’s FINRA BrokerCheck and Form CRS for further information.

JSI uses funds from your Treasury Account to purchase T-bills in increments of $100 “par value” (the T-bill’s value at maturity). T-bills are purchased at a discount to the par value and the T-bill’s yield represents the difference in price between the “par value” and the “discount price.” Aggregate funds in your Treasury Account in excess of the T-bill purchases will remain in your Treasury Account as cash. The value of T-bills fluctuate and investors may receive more or less than their original investments if sold prior to maturity. T-bills are subject to price change and availability - yield is subject to change. Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Investments in T-bills involve a variety of risks, including credit risk, interest rate risk, and liquidity risk. As a general rule, the price of a T-bills moves inversely to changes in interest rates. Although T-bills are considered safer than many other financial instruments, you could lose all or a part of your investment. See Jiko U.S. Treasuries Risk Disclosures for further details.

Investments in T-bills: Not FDIC Insured; No Bank Guarantee; May Lose Value.

Banking services and bank accounts are offered by Jiko Bank, a division of Mid-Central National Bank.

JSI and Jiko Bank are not affiliated with Public Holdings, Inc. (“Public”) or any of its subsidiaries. None of these entities provide legal, tax, or accounting advice. You should consult your legal, tax, or financial advisors before making any financial decisions.
