The era of hostage politics continues. This week's edition has us days away from a government shutdown. You might be thinking "who cares" or "good!!" I'd like to take a second to discuss several reasons why you should care. 1) Moody's, the only remaining credit rating agency that hasn't downgraded the nation's credit rating, indicated that any government shutdown would be "credit negative."

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

I am really trying to invest in American companies. So, I was just curious if the #publiccommunity was doing the same, or if it matters when you invest? With the recession collision course America is on, we're gonna need more trains, like $UNP , and ships (for OUR exports)- not flying cars! That isn't going to put food in my family's mouth... Focus on HOME! America has to focus on US right now, anSee more

#Cloud is one of the major sectors that has been on not only my radar but a couple of peep on here! One of the questions I often see while scrolling is how do I find companies to research? One of my favorite places is headlines. And today’s headline was a major one. The U.S. Defense Department said Tuesday that it plans to award as much as $9 Billion in contracts for cloud infrastructure servicSee more

I'm reposting this because I'm seeing a lot of bad advice being thrown out. I don't think it's intentionally bad I just think a lot of people are unaware of some of the dynamics at play. Until this weekend I had no idea we were as close as we are to a full blown economic collapse. Eviction Moratorium expired ✅ Enhanced Unemployment ended ✅ Debt Ceiling Restarted 8/1 ✅ Congress Failed to act✅See more
Eviction Moratorium expired ✅ Debt Ceiling Restarted 8/1 ✅ Congress Failed to act✅ US Treasury begins "extraordinary measures" to continue funding government financial obligations ✅ US Treasury Secretary warns that they will completely run out of money sometime in October ✅ US Fiscal Year ends 9/30✅ If the government isn't funded (separate issue from the debt ceiling) it will shut down on 10/1 ✅ All of this adds up to what's easily the most dangerous situation I've seen since 2008. But this is actually far more dangerous than can possibly be expressed. If the US government defaults on it's debts it would just destroy the global economic system which is built on the guarantee of US Treasury bonds. Those bonds are referred to as "risk free" because it seemed impossible that they could ever be defaulted on. We're significantly closer than anyone is talking about. The Fed meeting this week will likely be all about refining their plan (posted on their website) for how to handle a US debt default. Notice I haven't even touched on COVID. Not trying to be a pessimist. Really not. But when McConnell comes out today and literally says that Senate Republicans will not vote to increase the Treasury’s authority to continue borrowing, which is the same as voting to allow a default; it is hard to be an optimist. As he has done before, McConnell has essentially washed his hands of the situation and is walking away. But don't fall into the trap of thinking this is a right wing or a left wing failure. This is a bipartisan failure (I guess they CAN be bipartisan). Now either the Democrats pass some form of stop gap measure through budget reconciliation (a Senate rule being used to remove the need for any Republican votes provided all 50 Democrats vote yes) or we very possibly run out of time with the Federal government being unfunded going forward and unable to pay past debts. So basically the entire financial system hinges on one party ramming something through Congress before the clock runs out. Anyone feeling confident about that? Why am I telling you all of this? Because I'm not seeing it talked about hardly anywhere. We're talking about what would result in the end of this nation as the world's premier economic force. I saw 50 headlines about the girl who disappeared in Florida which, while tragic, is one person. If Congress does what Congress has been so skilled at doing, which is nothing, we are talking about something that would harm every single person in this country. The US dollar would become significantly less valuable. Prices for everything would skyrocket and unemployment would likely exceed what we saw at the peak of COVID. Only this time there would be no massive Federal government response. Forget buying dips and DCA. #debtceiling #government #treasury #tcardizzle ///// Sources /////// ///// ///// ////// /////// /////// /// EDIT: Is a trillion dollar platinum coin the answer?

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.

Securities products offered by Public Investing are not FDIC insured. Apex Clearing Corporation, our clearing firm, has additional insurance coverage in excess of the regular SIPC limits. 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. 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.
