Spooky that future geezers are entrusting thier future retirement to glorified gamblers.... More spookier that these suit-&-ties are replacing bookie-slang-terms with glorified important sounding terms.

So main point is how they save money on the trade fee. So many trades with the lowest cost. People who invest and pay high fees for an asset usually make out the best. Something to think about and find

Awesome to see some of my Level III CFA candidates putting theory to practice at Vanguard’s fixed income trading desk #LevelUp

Containment of costs and indexing are part of the story. I generate a significant and growing annual income by investing in dividend paying stocks and other cash-generating investments (preferred stock, junk bonds, emerging bonds, etc). Capital growth via indexing is pleasant enough but cold cash dividends are far nicer.

And then Gamestop arrived and said. From whence you came, you shall remain. Until you are complete again. And, the vanguard brokers said. This, is good. Come to us oh flock of sheep.

And you cant even see one candlestick chart on their screens. While retail traders go crazy about all the indicators.

Great video Vanguard, thank you for giving us a sneak peak on how it works from the inside. I have one question though. What do you think about retail trading strategies. You know the price action patterns like pin bar, head and shoulders and other technical analysis. Should I be focusing on those to get better at trading or is it all fundamental analysis that the "real" professional traders use to make a trading decision? I am searching for an answer to this question for years, but I cant find an answer. Is it even possible to make money in Forex daytrading? Thanks.

I wish there were good Vanguard books to read to help Vanguard customers have more knowledge about terms used and about how to best ways to know the companies they are investing in. I know, 60%/40%, and and I know, read quarterly reports but basic foundational knowledge I do not know. I have at least a dozen books on investing in my house but I do not know how to best connect with traders or how to get up to date information needed for wise investing. I know lots of people invest in popular instruments but that too is not enough to understand the markets.
