re: The Predatory Lending Machine Crushing Small Business Across America - Omada

re: Dow down 700 pts - Omada
It was a 60 point drop in /ES during a time that normally sees volume of 1,000 contracts or so, and CME had to step in with the pauses and rejection of market orders to keep things from getting worse. I don't really understand the Velocity Logic at a glance, [link=(https://www.cmegroup.com/confluenc...

re: Dow down 700 pts - Omada
I couldn't find this directly from the CME, just a few different sites. [img]https://i.imgur.com/o8KiOf9.png[/img] The drop happened in the first 3 minutes of the futures open. 22k /ES contracts traded in those 3 minutes. 2,100 /YM contracts. ~4,300 /NQ contracts. The other two are smaller becau...

I remember the $60b figure from somewhere... probably Bloomberg or WSJ. The closest I easily found was [link=(https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-07-09/after-years-of-easing-meet-quantitative-tightening-quicktake)]this from Bloomberg[/link], but it says $50b.

re: The Predatory Lending Machine Crushing Small Business Across America - Omada
For those of you wanting an explanation of the issue without reading the article: The article is about merchant cash advances, which, according to government, are different from loans and therefore not under the same scrutiny as conventional loans. See this [link=(https://debanked.com/2017/05/fed...

re: ExxonMobil company culture and work environment - Omada
I'm not sure, but I have a buddy that worked there a few years ago. I'm mainly commenting as friendly advice that you should change your topic title to more than 'XOM' so that people will know you aren't wanting to talk about the stock but working there. Also, it's a good idea to check them out ...

re: Degree in Finance; Good or Bad idea? - Omada
First of all, great first post. You necroed a thread from mid December [b]2015[/b]. :lol: Second, a finance degree is far from worthless, which is why the comment you're replying to got only downvotes. Like any degree, it matters where you get it, GPA, networking, etc. But you can be fine for a w...

re: Is Jim Cramer the biggest idiot out there? - Omada
May I suggest James Cordier and the hedge fund Optionsellers as a runner up? They made money by selling OTM options with a lot of leverage. He recently decided it would be a good idea to do so with natural gas just before the winter season, the time of major volatility for the NG market. Now, it ...

An Examination of The Golden and Death Crosses - Omada
If you watch or read financial news, you've likely heard about the Death Cross, the supposed ender of bull markets, destroyer of worlds, and puppy kicker. If you're not aware, the Death Cross is when the 50 day simple moving average crosses below the 200 day simple moving average. The opposite, when...

Part of me wishes I had your balls. The rest of me knows that they'll be in your wife's purse for the foreseeable future. If I were you, I'd be selling OTM calls with entry price as the strike for the down payment to try to get some of that money back. But if you aren't familiar with options, my ...
