Email of the day on margin debt balances

Eoin wanted to know the source of the margin Debt issue. it's the Felder Report. 

And

The margin data is now published by FINRA - my inexperienced eye believes that the article has over-stated the reduction of margin somewhat. (It's Ha Ha) - marginal. 


FINRA took over reporting: https://www.finra.org/investors/learn-to-invest/advanced-investing/margin-statistics  

Eoin Treacy's view

Thank you for these educational emails covering an important subject. Margin debt balances had long been a useful indicator of appetite for risk in the markets but the NYSE stopped producing the data in 2017. Generally speaking, margin debt balances turn downwards, from a new high, ahead of a major reversal in the stock market. There has been a great deal of speculation recently about whether that is what we are seeing today.
