This stock looks great in theory. Strained governmental relations brought on by, not entirely sure since I currently reside in the US and truth has a way of being subjective to put it mildly, make a large stake in this ETF dangerous. I will give it a decent position. Check the metrics for awhile and decide if this is a investment I can feel secure in holding for the long-term. #opportunities #debtceiling #advancemagisip #accumulating #luck #moneymachinegobrrrrrr

Back in January, I wrote a detailed post about the upcoming debt ceiling fight, complete with several suggestions regarding ways to protect yourself should things indeed get out of hand (Link at the bottom). I believe we're at that point right now. I'd like to lay out the situation for everyone in a concise way that avoids the need to get into a crazy, heated, and partisan screaming match. The facSee more
US could default on its debt as soon as June 1 if Congress doesn’t act, Yellen says Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Monday warned that the United States may run out of measures to pay its debt obligations by June 1, earlier than the government and Wall Street had been expecting. What their saying: In a letter to House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, Yellen said new data on tax receipts forced the depSee more
👀 Bad news for the economy is now bad news on Wall Street - more turmoil could be on the horizon for the stock market… The United States hit its borrowing cap on Thursday, forcing the Treasury Department to start taking “extraordinary measures” to keep the government open. If an agreement isn’t reached, markets could plunge (like they did the last time this happened in 2011) and the United StatesSee more
You're going to be hearing these two words a LOT over the next 5-7 months: Debt Ceiling. I'm sure a million people with agendas will be more than happy to tell you why they think defaulting is a fantastic idea. I spent a lot of time last year trying to explain why the debt ceiling needed to be raised and what the consequences would be if we didn't raise it and basically all I got in the comments wSee more

The United States has a weird thing called "the debt ceiling" 💰 which is just a limit on how much debt the country can take on. If the national debt reaches that limit, the US might not be able to pay its investors. The current US debt is around $31. That’s a trillion with a T and the Treasury Department warns the country will hit the “debt ceiling” on Thursday. The US regularly comes close to hSee more
⭐⭐ Breaking News ⭐⭐ The Senate has just passed a procedural bill to allow debt ceiling to be raised with 51 Senate votes one time only; this bill now heads to President Biden; after he signs it, both houses will vote again to actually raise the debt ceiling by a specific dollar amount. This compromise between Democrat Chuck Schumer and Republican Mitch McConnell behind closed doors has effectivelSee more
So here we are once again, I try and delicately approach a topic that is very much on the mind of the market but because it deals with politics will inevitably elicit extreme responses. Can we not this time? Is that a thing? The purpose of this post is to inform those who may be unaware of several time sensitive issues with the clock running down that will very much affect the market. I still beliSee more

It seems pretty clear what's been weighing down the market. Yesterday, after news that McConnell had floated a short term debt ceiling raise, the market staged it's biggest comeback since February 2020 coming from 1.4% down to finish up 0.46%. But what does this deal accomplish exactly, when might it be passed, and what does it mean for the future. So what does this accomplish? Put simply it'sSee more
⭐ Breaking News ⭐ Mitch McConnell has apparently floated the idea of a short term debt ceiling increase. There's a vote scheduled today on a separate bill that would suspend the ceiling until December 2022 that McConnell had said he planned on filibustering. That appears to still be the plan. The proposal would only cover things through next month. Apparently McConnell is beginning to see that thSee more
So with $FB /IG and the markets being down — don’t just instantly buy stock just because they are dipping. They could dip more. Just because they dip, doesn’t mean they will cause you to DRIP. Meaning — Having a strategy even when there’s a s*it show going on is key. If you buy stock just because it’s dipping could be panic buying. See: see panic selling. Because if the dip, dips even more — can ySee more

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.

“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.
