Robinhood app is gearing to go public. The fintech startup shook up E-Trade (ETFC) and other online brokers with its free stock trading model, but faces challenges ahead as JPMorgan Chase (JPM) enters the free investing space. X CNBC quoted Robinhood CEO Baiju Bhatt saying Thursday at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco that his company is "thinking about" going public. He said that is likely to happen in the medium to long term, not soon. The online brokerage is on the hunt for a chief financial officer as it looks to an initial public offering (IPO). U.S. regulators are auditing Robinhood as part of the process. The Robinhood app for free stock and ETF trading launched three years ago. It now boasts 5 million brokerage accounts vs. 4 million in May, which itself marked a doubling in the past year.

If you want to own shares of companies, you'll be getting into a market that began rising more than nine years ago and now sits near an all-time high. The bull market, now 3,453 days old, will be the longest in history by the end of trading on Wednesday.

Pinpointing market tops is difficult. While Wall Street skeptics have been warning of a big drop for years, this bull keeps proving them wrong, and has risen almost 325 percent since March 2009.

Boudette and Matt Phillips Aug. 7, 2018 Elon Musk has become one of the world’s most prominent chief executives, and a billionaire several times over, by boldly making big bets on ideas that few others thought possible. He started a private rocket company that sends materials into space, and plans to send astronauts soon. He is creating machines to bore giant tunnels through the earth. And Tesla Inc., where he serves as chief executive, has succeeded in creating an Apple-like brand of electric cars. Through it all, he has shown a maverick — some would say arrogant — management style. On Tuesday, he may have outdone himself. In a terse and cryptic Twitter post, he declared that he was ready to take Tesla private. The stock market that made his company worth over $60 … [Read more...] about Elon Musk Says Tesla May Go Private, and Its Stock Soars
The future...... ..... of Exchange Traded Notes (ETN's|).... .... is here. Investors are always at the heart of financial product innovation. That’s a concept very similar to “ring fencing,”— EvCorpLONDON, UK, UNITED KINGDOM, August 2, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Investors are always at the heart of financial product innovation. The explosion of investment vehicles to express views across the entire spectrum of global assets has been the true story of our modern era, much more so than the philosophical underpinnings of the passive index-linked investment products that ushered in the current asset-allocation environment. Kate Allen at the FT says “Investors’ confidence in the global economic upswing is fading.....” (FT Jun 26), and also navigating the regulatory environment has become more urgent since MiFID II was finally implemented, which has completely altered the trading of the over the counter (OTC) bond markets and the role of client … [Read more...] about Exchange Traded Notes (ETNs): Old-School Priorities in the Brave New World
