Since all employees , consultants and contracts working with Wall St ( Finanace ) firms are bound by numerous Personal Trading Account protocols and rules. What do you invest in for short and long term earnings ( exclusing IRA,401k,crypto, Acorns ) ?

      Hedge funds isn’t same as usual stock trading ... we have to get everything precleared... even opening an account on robinhood ( which is mostly not allowed by a majority of banks )

    30% of my portfolio in tech, 10% in high dividend stocks, rest in ETFs.

    Afaik you don’t need to go through compliance for crypto yet. Only crypto derivatives listed in the CME.

      @fakeengineer ... I don’t know what you’re talking about man ... I know a lot of folks at GS and all say they can’t trade single name securities on the personal trading accounts

      Most people at the company can't but a good portion of securities division is allowed to and probably IMD as well. There's documents explicitly saying this.

      You can purchase single name securities unless they are on a company-wide blacklist or specific group restrictions. Compliance documents should outline this at each firm. You need to get single names pre-cleared. It usually comes with a 24 hour window.

      There will be blackouts and restricted lists of course but other than that it’s not like they can’t trade at all.

      I put all in a low fee managed account so I don’t need to brother with clearing through compliance.
